Never Go There! Booked it online without reading the reviews. BIG MISTAKE! Upon arriving at the “So Called HOTEL” we found surrounded by strange looking people, trash all over, and construction next door. We decided to have a look at the room in spite of all that. We’ve been kicked out in no time from strong smell of urine and...

Very strange place. Staff was not friendly, the room was dirty and smelled like cigarettes even though it was a no smoking room and there were burning marks in the furnitures. The location is also bad, far from grocery stores and most chain restaurants. We just wanted to leave ASAP.

This is a disgrace....dirty rooms, the furniture falling apart, terrible stuff. If I wasn't arrived at 9 p.m., would definitelly walk away. I saw also that in most rooms windows were broken not in mine though.

Walked in and walked out. We lost the money from one of the search engines we bought it from and booked at the Marriott instead for a little more. I wouldn't let a flea infested dog stay there. Seemed more like a hotel from a horror movie.

You can hear everything that the guest upstairs from you does. The people above us had children; jumping up and down dropping stuff, running back and forth. Fortunately they stopped at 10 or so so I could sleep. Also, they are building another hotel next to it so if you're planning to stay during a weekday (we stayed on a...

Embarrassing and awful. Second hand store would not sell the "furniture". The entire place needs to be gutted. There isn't anything redeeming about this place. Nothing has been painted fixed or maintained.

Wish I had checked reviews. The place looks like a dump from the outside, including parked cars in the lot with flat tires. When my husband went to turn our UHAUL truck around, none of the sullen looking young men hanging out in the parking lot made any effort to move, so he had to make a three point turn....

Hi Mike - We are located at very busy intersection with a Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites, as well as a Comfort Inn and Race Trac Gas Station all within walking distance and a brand new Fairfield Inn & Suites hotel being built nearby.

This hotel has received a lot of negative reviews, but do not let that stop you. I just returned from a weekend in St Petersburg to see the Rays take on the White Sox. Go Rays.

Hi Cindy - Thanks for the nice review. I agree completely Vicky and the rest of the stay are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and we are convenient to the Interstate, Shopping and Dining.
