There is no way that you will find everyone giving the same reviews on a forum like this. There will be good experiences as well as bad experiences. In a business, that's what the owners have to go through every second of the day. With this said, I have to say Crossland offered us one of the best extended stay experiences my fiance and I ever had. First when we pulled up, we couldn't believe that an extended stay hotel could look as beautiful as Crossland. We were expecting the worst, honestly. We were expecting a cheap looking motel - and we say motel because a lot of motels are grungy looking and the occupants all seem to be unscrupulous....not Crossland. We had that welcoming feeling the moment we drove up to the front of the building. Crossland has 2 palm trees bordering the front office and you feel like you're walking up the aisle to get married (smile). Overall the office staff are very accommodating and pleasant. Now what are you expecting from an extended stay hotel where people stay as long as they want to? Do you expect the same service and ambiance as say the Hilton Hotel or leasing an apartment where they run your credit of which a bad credit score will prevent you from living there? What we can say is this, you get what you pay for. Crossland is an extended stay hotel. They don't check your credit, you stay as long as you wish, it gives you an opportunity to get your life back together while having a comfortable place to stay and feel at ease. Whatever your personal situation is, Crossland is the best extended stay hotel to be. Whether your stay is short term or long term, you can't find anywhere more suitable, accommodating, stress free like Crossland. Crossland has free housekeeping, it's pet friendly, unfortunately no swimming pool (but of course what would you expect if your paying such a low rate to live somewhere, you can't get all the glits and glammer, so having no swimming pool here, we believe is more than acceptable), the room comes with cooking utensils, a microwave, a stove, a small refrigerator, a dish drainer, a small desk, 2 chairs, a TV with local cable stations, free internet with just an extremely minimal payment when you register (it's about $5), so as long as you're staying here, there is no more fee for the internet, you're set until you're ready to leave. No matter where you go you will always find good people and unscrupulous people - whether you stay in Beverly Hills or at Crossland. The last thing we would like to mention is, the local police are always evident and this gives us, the occupants, peace of mind that we are safe.
We rated Crossland a 4 - and would have rated it a 5, if it wasn't for the less than perfect plumbing system they have. Frankly, everywhere we've visited or gone to in Florida and the surrounding area of Crossland, there's a less than perfect plumbing system somewhere. Other than that, our stay here has been remarkable. It's been almost 6 months and WE'RE STILL LOVING CROSSLAND !!!!!
Rooms in the front are much more sunny, brighter and has full view of the businesses in the area, su...
