Fabulous 8.6 From 328 reviews

Poor 2.0
lots of bugs, stains on wall, never gave clean towels until we asked.
us7 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
Front desk staff was welcoming but hotel needs a good cleaning/freshening up. Bathroom (shower and ceiling) was moldy and exhaust vent needs a dusting. Spent a lot of time waiting on elevators. Breakfast offered ample options.

Very Good 8.0
Good value
Basic hotel. Free breakfast and clean. Everything I needed for a quick one night stay
TRACY, us1 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Really loud, no privacy.
This was a Sunday night stay mid-summer, the quiet season near UF. Despite having plenty of room, I was put in a room with an adjoining room. With just a door between us, I could everything from the room next door, we might as well have been in the same room. When I complained about it, they said they did that because the other side of the hall was noisy because of the highway!

Poor 2.0
Stay away-bugs and dirty
We checked into hotel and after dinner as we tried to relax before bedtime, we killed several bugs crawling on nightstand. We went to front desk and the young women at the desk was very helpful to try to make our stay better. She had us go to another room to evaluate condition, which also had dead bugs, candy wrapper on the floor, a clump of hair on the comforter. She called another hotel for us to see if they had a handicap pet friendly room available. She was very helpful. We packed up an elderly women with medical supplies at 10:30 pm with our little dog to go to a different hotel. This is the first bad review I have written. This was a very bad experience.
