Very scary, unsafe place to stay! Worst experience of my life! Seen a drug deal, heard screaming non-stop for 2 hours. Questionable people hanging out in the parking lot by our car. We checked out after dealing with this for 2 hours and paid to stay at a different hotel that night. Tried to get ahold of Suhki the "so called manager" for 3 days after the night attendant Phillip said I'd have to get a refund from her. She didn't show up for work the next day and her voice mail box was full. When I finally did speak with her she was one of the rudest people I've ever delt with and decided she would not refund my 1 night (2hour) stay. Orbitz also decided it was a non -refundable room i booked. Very disappointing all the way around. They should not be advertising this hotel! Unless you would like to rent a very dirty, hair on the bathroom floor, paint coming off the walls room for a couple hours to buy drugs in the parking lot and listen to screaming right outside your door or you just want to see your life flash before your eyes to appreciate it then I would DEFINITELY recommend you stay ANYWHERE BUT HERE!

a very nice, friendly, quiet comfortable property...staff was very courteous.

My daughter did not stay with us (a family member was picking her up). The front desk made me pay $10 for her because she was with me till she left and was going to the airport the next day with me. Ok, not terrible but he kept my drivers license probably by accident but never even called or contacted me. I almost went to the airport with no id. They had at least 12 licenses behind the desk. My luggage was accidentally left by my daughter again never called me. I needed towel and blanket. Never came. Phone in room parts missing and broken. Outlets broken. Cups on counter 2/3 were not in plastic. It was fairly clean and ok for what we needed. We were stuck not being able to get back to New York because of storm. They have free shuttle. Staff was nice, I just think not too bright. Waffles,bagels,muffins etc for breakfast. Fine for quick bite on way out. Pool looked clean. It was too cold to use.

Hotel was very clean and comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful. I had the pool completely to myself, the location had stores within walking distance if needed. Very reasonable price for nice sized room.

Do NOT book this hotel! When we arrived, my wife and I found blood on our comforter and sheets. We called the front desk and they said they would replace them. We called again and they said they would replace them. Then they ignored our calls all through the morning - without ever replacing our dirty, bloody sheets. We took pictures and showed the girl at checkout, who agreed and encouraged us to send the photos to the manager and to contact Orbitz. We did both, but management at the property didn't think they needed to do anything about this objectively horrible experience - in fact, he said he was "too busy" to listen to our concern.

It was close by the mall but the beds are uncomfortable and there was an unexpected fee. We had the fix the headboard because it dropped when we ôpened the door

Shuttle ride from airport about 20 minutes so a bit long. Lots of noise from other guests with parties lasting into night. I carry earplugs for these situations. But just needed one night for a quick rest. So it was sufficient for that.

The hotel was alright. Not too clean. There were make up stains all over the sheets. Not enough towels. They took the towels on the second day so we had to go ask for some. Not too close to the parks. Our room never closed. It is a miracle no one stole anything seeing as the door remained open the entire time. Wouldn't close at all. We were right next to the pool and the pool door was extremely loud when I was trying to rest. Ok for the price but will still elsewhere.

Comfortable and cheap. Friendly staff. Including breakfast is a big plus. Close to The Florida Mall. There is nothing to complain about.

Extremely moldy smell on carpet.. one lamp didn't work and the other one was broken.. no wifi ( even tho they offer it) breakfast was horrible

This hotel would be prefect if they put effort into cleaning the rooms and linens. Upon checking into our room we found an empty beer bottle in our room and the bed sheets were dirty. If it wasn't because it was 12am when we checked in we would have probably left and asked for a refund. Also, I advised that we were a family of four and there were only two sets of towels in our room, well technically one because one the towels was dirty. The following day before departing called front desk to advise housekeeping to leave extra towels and no extra towels were left only two again. Called the front desk and was hold it would be a few minutes. Which my husband didn't appreciate considering that i made the request for extra towels in the morning and this is a service that should have been provided upon housekeeping so he went to the front desk and the clerk did apologize and gave him towels right away. But, other then that this hotel isn't that bad for quick weekend getaway!

The hotel keys never work , so every day went to the lobby and asked for new keys , the ac was terrible and the last day at the hotel I have to use the same tower from the day before

Great breakfast...nice staff....very close to airport so convenient

Both Ice Machines broken or out of Ice. Room Dirty and old. Bathroom Clean and shower OK. Layout of room bad.

I got in late on a Saturday night, waited for shuttle for 2hrs. Front desk clerk told me to complain to manager next day; neXT day when i check out-no managers areally working. Room had spots on ceiling. Bed skirt had weird stains. 3 tiny block shaped pillows on bed. This was last week, I've called back every day and have yet to gotten a hold of a Manger to express my complaints.

The hotel is what you pay for. Cheap and old facilities and furniture, clean and safe. If you depend on a good internet connection, as was my case, this is not your place. Basically is a place to sleep.

Nice hotel. Great location. Close to airport and close to nightlife activities.

This was truly a case of you get what you pay for. I was very disappointed in my experience with this hotel. The staff was not very helpful or friendly whatsoever. That was only the tip of the iceberg. My room was terrifying to stay in. The sheets had stains on them, one of the lights was busted out, the toilet didn't work, there was a hole in the wall, and more. Maybe it is common in this area but I cannot recommend.

Bathroom door locked & wouldn't open from inside. stuck for a few minutes. Very outdated but for the price it was okay. Close to lots of places to eat and the shuttle to airport was good to have. Not my first choice for next visit.

Good Hotel. Simple, but clean. Good price. Love the location, lots of places to eat and shop! Friendly Staff. The only negative point: the towels in the bathroom had lots of stains, did not seen very clean. I would definitely stay there again.
