Our large family needed a hotel due to a water leak in our home. We reserved 2 rooms next to each other. While I unpacked groceries, my husband opened the nightstand drawer and found a used drug straw, roll of aluminum foil, zippo lighter, misc cords, and scratch off tickets. Looking deeper in the room we found rat droppings on top of the fridge, dirt and white powder in the drawers and dead roaches under the sink. We took pictures and went down to the office to cancel rooms and the clerk wasn’t even concerned or shocked and stated she didn’t need to see any pictures. Made me call orbitz to cancel my reservation. For the reviews it has the place was gross.

The staff was extremely helpful and kind. I had a maintenance issue which was quickly resolved.

Great location. Hotel closed to VA hospital, university and great restaurants. Available kitchen. Friendly staff.

The property had no pool and no ice machine at all.

I liked it a lot my room in particular was absolutely spectacular!

The price was good compared to the surrounding hotels. There was no "breakfast included". Provided were air pots of coffee, single serve Nature Valley bars and instant oatmeal packages. This was given along one of the walls in the small lobby/office room. The picture of the hotel in the ad is not of the hotel we stayed at. The pictures of the rooms in the ad were bright and appeared to be new finishes. The king room we stayed in was not bright and was dingy.

The room had a large roach. The bathroom had black spots along the calk. I stayed one night and didn’t stay the other five nights. They charged a second night. I was disappointed in the hotel and orbitz on how they handled it.

,messy around grounds w/leaves other than that is was fine.

Location is amazing. Tub was clogged and room had odor. Staff is amazing and friendly.

Nice location Quiet area Walking sistance to publix and restaurants

Not bad room clean nice location got a lot of restaurant staff was alright not great but staff alright

They full of it was giving out dirty room and when asked them to move my family to another room they call the police and kicked us out

Carpets need cleaned! Mold in bathroom! Kicked up my allergies! Not happy

No coffee in room. Don't go if you want a reasonable breakfast but McDonalds only a block away. On 3rd floor with only 1 elevator. I'm 73 years old and had the farthest room from it.

Chose this hotel because allowed pets and had kitchen. My fur babies got fleas from the property. Door to my room was less than 50 yards from I75. Very loud traffic all night. Staff HORRIBLE. One has to request cookware. It was so dented it did not sit flat on very slow conduction burners. Awful stove. I got a rash from sheets even though I brought my own blanket.
