AndreaCatSLP - It is amazing that someone like yourself who never stayed with us nor paid for a room or a stay can continue to rant about something you have no knowledge about. Your review is fraudulent and slanderous and says something about your state of mind when you believe you should continue to write these false statements and make accusations when you have had no direct experience on our property. You didn't like being told that we cannot address your accusations because you didn't pay for anything nor did you stay on our property. We will continue to respond in the same manner everywhere you decide to try and address this.

I'm dismayed and so very sorry to read your comments. Your experience is drastically different than what the vast majority of our guests enjoy while staying with us. We pride ourselves on providing our guests with clean, fresh and comfortable rooms and I sincerely apologize that your visit was so far from this commitment we make to our guests. I wish you would have reached out to us during your stay so we could have had the opportunity to resolve these issues for you immediately.

We spent one night. Check in was pleasant and quick. The room was clean and appointed well. Bath and shower were ok but a bit dated. We did not use the large pool but it was inviting with drink area, lounges, and such. The grounds surrounding the pool were attractive with flower

My husband and I spent 4 nights here on our Florida road trip. We were a little concerned reading some of the negative reviews but didn’t experience any problems. Check in was smooth and all members of staff were very helpful throughout our stay. The exterior of the hotel had
