ok stay

I made the mistake of not specifying a nonsmoking room before clicking "pay", so i called the hotel directly and was told they only had smoking rooms available. Tarpon springs was busy that weekend and 2 other hotels were full so we took our chances and made sure to pack incense for the room. Room was marked nonsmoking on the outside of the door but had more than a hint of cigarettes past. No signs of bedbugs! But did see a small cockroach. A/C barely cooled and this was late March.Room was shabby but clean-ish, bathroom worse in all aspects. But we slept ok, no noise heard from other guests, we didn't leave with any bugs on/in our luggage nor our bodies so it was a successful stay.I was glad to read the reviews before staying so as to be prepared. I travel for a living and for pleasure all over the world, and by middle class american standards this place does not score highly, but it is not the worst.

Didn't even stay on a pre-pay!!!!!!!

The manager/owner was on the computer/ the only only one available for use at this hotel. He offers you the use of it, yeah , like I'm going to put my info on his comp.,so after he finished what he was doing, he checked us in, When we drove around to our room, the paint peeling off the walls of the building would have been a dead give away. No, inside was worse! The black carpet, originally a tan or beige, had the odor of ALL-OUTDOORS. The bathroom was as bad or worse!

Great Price ...Great Location

I had my doubts about staying here after reading reviews but with my budget decieded to go ahead & chance it...glad I did...Recommended for a basic place to stay on a budget. The location was nice, a short driving distance from the sponge docks and within walking distance of downtown Tarpon Springs..The staff was friendly.. we arrived 4 hrs early & was allowed to check in...Rooms are not what you get @ the high end prices but ok ,you get what you pay for. I would stay again

Staff made the stay!

The staff at this small hotel made the stay special. They were very conscientious of the comfort and wishes of guests, and made one feel valued as a customer. the location was nice, a short driving distance from the sponge docks and attractions of Tarpon Springs, and yet on a small quiet side local adjacent to a bayou which offered a lovely morning or evening walk. The highlight however still remains the friendly and helpful hotel staff.

Busch gardens is a 45 minute drive, but a special 'local' attraction.

Not a good place to stay

At check-in they did not have our reservations, we requested a no smoking room and it badly smelled of cigarettes. Sheets were dingy room was gross, We asked for a refund and checked out immediately. I cannot believe anyone would endorse such a disgusting place.

The Worst Motel in Tarpon Springs

They advertise as a hotel but they're actually a horrible Motel. It's the worst experience I've had in my life while traveling, the place is a complete caos, room was totally filthy,everything was dirty, damaged or stinky, we can't stand the horrible mold stink in the room,even the shower curtain has mold stains, totally waste of money, worst stay ever, not recommended to anybody, we even took pictures of the condition of room, even ceiling was cracked and we were afraid to get it falling on us at night.I do'n't know how [...] and other web sites still continue doing business with this hotel, they are a nightmare for travelers and turism in Tarpon Springs, not recomended to anybody
