“Close to Old Town”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

Stayed here for a night in route to Clearwater Beach. Staff wasnt very friendly pretty much gave key and took info with no conversation or eye contact. Room was Ok, door to room looked like a battering ram was taken to it. Dented up and a huge gap all the way around it. Beds were comfy and it was clean. Bathroom could stand some fine detail cleaning but overall was ok. Very close to Old Town which was a plus near alot of stores and restaurants. Prices were good.

Our group of 62 people (kids and adults) stayed here for 9 nights in June/July 2013. Excellent service and absolutely NO problems. Thanks to the staff and management. This hotel is located very close to the theme parks as Universal, Islands of Adventure, Aquatica, SeaWorld and Wet'n Wild. Also close to all Disney parks. Restaurant of choice nearby: Ponderosa Steakhouse with excellent service for groups.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back building is the quiet ones.

it's very nasty smelly hotel. If you are allergic, then it is really possible to die. I had severe respiratory allergy. I was very bad. I gasped. I do not recommend this hotel for an extended stay. And to the owners a piece of advice - think about the people!

Went the beginning of August 2013, location was good but the hotel was bad so never staying here again. Asked for a cot and got a bunch of springs hanging out of the mattress. No breakfast (not that I would have eaten it anyway). Staff was nice but doesn't offset the hotel and the quality in general.
