The staff was polite and professional. We were part of a large sporting event checking in and they handled it with ease and zero problems or complaints that I heard about. The room was spotless and well-maintained. This is the first hotel in a long time that was well maintained down to the smallest detail. The pool area was clean...

I was disappointed that the hotel was so old. There were hotels in the area that were newer but they were all booked. Apparently we were there during the week of the High School tournaments (of all kinds). The front desk personnel were nice and the room was clean & roomy. It smelled REALLY bad the first night but not...

Stayed here the past weekend to attend a soccer tournament. Staff was extremely professional and customer service was exceptional - check in was smooth. Our room was on the second floor and immediately from exiting the elevator you could smell that the hotel was musty. It is quite humid in Florida and this is a pet friendly hotel so I...

Hotel is located for easy access from I-75, Room was very clean, front desk staff very friendly. The location is a short drive from the lovely sandy beaches on the Gulf. There are a number of good chain restaurants within easy drive.

The hotel charged my credit card for a stay on April 7, 2016, that had been paid for in advance by my company. When I departed, there was no one to be found at the desk to get a receipt from. Really aggravating! Although almost all hotels require a credit card at check in ("for incidentals"), I specifically stated that...

We stayed in a two queen bedroom suite which unfortunately is on the other side of the wall of the aging elevator that emitted a variety of loud nonrhythmic sounds capable of waking one out of slumber numerous times a night.
