Business Trip

The stay was a pleasant surprise. I thought since the place was cheap, it would have small room and would not be clean. It was both clean and had decent room size.

will be better next week when new owners take over

everything looked like good value upon entering. Great staff, nice lobby. Not so the room-the room had moldy smell and felt like the whole bed, etc were sort of damp. Finally I opened the balcony door and blasted the A/C and by morning it was fine..but I was leaving. Pillows were too large for the pillow cases so I was forced to keep my face away from the nasty end that I am sure others has been using. Pillows were hard as rocks. Other motels get those ffluffy pillows- Target sells them for $4.00..which fit into cases, and are easily washed. Horrible night!! Will not return! Also the "breakfast" was way below what other less expensive hotels and motels offer!! I have had much better on all accounts for $47.00 NOT $79.00!! ( be glad to list the better hotels for you)

Deceptive and Terrible Service!

On the booking site they gave me two choices for rooms one for king bed with water view and one with double beds with water view so I picked the king bed with the water view. When I got to the hotel I tried to show the kid at the desk the email with the confirmation code for my room and he wouldn't even look at it. He said it doesn't matter because he hadn't received the email from the booking site in his email. I didn't even think he was going to let me have a room so then he took my debit card and put a $98.00 hold on it which is more than the room cost me on the booking site to begin with! I blew it off cause I had a cab waiting to take me to dinner and took my bags to the room and open the curtains because I had told the kid I reserved a room with a waterfront view ... and sure enough I had a roof view!! I went back to the desk and he said it was all he had although the parking lot was empty! So the next day I ask for the manager and was informed by her that all rooms are "water view" because the hotel is on the water and that it doesn't matter if you can actually see the water from your room! She was very rude and not helpful at all! I will not return again! I only picked the low rated hotel because the price is actually cheap if you have a "water view" but soooo not worth the price at all for the hotel with no view.

for the price you cant go wrong

We visited for 4th of July weekend, the view from the room was serene facing the water. Close to tarpon springs and Clearwater, would definitely revisit.

Location was great and room was what I expected for the price. Front desk could have been a little more helpful and friendly. Overall not a bad stay.
