Good Stay
The entrance to the hotel was enticing and reinforced the decision to book there - welcome to Florida! Cookies and cold bottled water were a pleasant, semi-unnecessary but ultimately warm offering upon checking in. The room itself looked terrific. Cool textures and furniture and color and all that; I’m no interior decorator, but I assumed some talented person(s) designed these en masse and, I really want to believe, picked out one killer (and quite expansive) piece of artwork to display directly opposite the nicely appointed double beds I would be nestled about within a few hours time. Whether the artwork was stolen and not replaced or I misjudged the creative minds behind the design of the room, I was left with a massive, framed picture of the color green like the felt on a pool table. The wastebaskets were not lined with any plastic bag of any sort; on my way to the bar/restaurant, I asked the front desk if they had missed my room during cleaning but, after a slight hesitation, she guessed that no, bags in the wastebaskets were normal - unlike the prior two hotels and two motels I had stayed in over the past four days. Bar staff was stiff, and mildly neglectful despite low customer base, and there a few missteps during my time enjoying a couple of drinks and a meal. There was no bathroom fan/ventilation and therefore subsequent, significant fog after a hot shower. The beds and pillows were enjoyable and greatly appreciated.

Overpriced for Graduation weekend
Good hotel. Gets horribly over priced whenever there is a Univ Florida event.

Okay stay
Service was excellent. Hotel is older although it has been updated. Disappointed about pool that needed vacuuming and regular straining for bugs. This did not happen during my stay and I wouldn’t swim in the pool and my family did not want to either. The hotel doors to the pool were for exit only. To get back to the room we had to walk through the lobby and down two halls to our room which we requested to be near the pool. Quite frustrating. Hotel is right off I75 so the traffic never stops and also is pool side.

Last Minute Business Trip
The facility was spotless and the service was excellent. The only challenge I had was using the ironing board because the pad was thin and loose. The iron worked great.
