Before I get started, I want to say that the location was great for what we needed. As we were getting checked in... There was a comment by the front desk employee, "I see you booked through Priceline". Even though we had a $50 voucher from Priceline for booking a cruise through them, we felt as though we weren't good enough to stay with them. We were given a room that was right off of the elevator, on the second floor. A great location, but the elevator was extremely slow. As we opened the room door, my wife and I were hit with a strong stench. We pretty much knew it was some sort of mold or mildew. We let it go right of way, because we've stayed in other hotels in Florida that have had the same type of stench. Only looking back at those hotels, we've encountered them either in late summer or early fall. We noticed as we were getting ready to go to bed, that the floor was extremely dirty. We could physically see how dirty it was, along with different colors of long female hair from different people. Like it hadn't been vacuumed anytime in the recent past. So much so, that both of us used our flip flops as soon as we got out of the shower in the morning (like you would in a public shower at a campground). As we were getting into bed, we noticed there were several black specs along the crown molding on the ceiling. I stood up on the bed to get a closer look. Sure enough, it was black mold. We found the issue of the smell! The next morning we both took showers, and the shower curtain was filthy. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. The room itself was fairly big compared to a regular guest room. They claim they cater to business travelers, but there wasn't a single garbage can anywhere in the room on the side where the so-called desk was. One good thing... When we were checking out, I mentioned the black mold on the crown molding to the front desk. Both employees acted like they knew nothing about it, and would let someone know about it right away.
