Without a doubt, the nastiest most horrifying place I have ever slept in. We were fleeing hurricane Matthew and every other Hotel room in Tampa and its environs were full. This place was so disgusting I almost slept in my car, but my kids were scared. Cigarette holes in sheets and comforter. Roaches crawling and brown spots on walls from... More

Just don't book this inn unless you are OK with filthy and disgusting room, bad service, no internet service. It's just waste of money! I stayed there for one night and my girl hated there! It was absolutely terrible mistake.

The room was disgusting! stained carpets, dirty walls, smelled horribly! But the worst part... BED BUGS!!! Did not stay the night. Checked in at 10pm checked out at 4am. Left with... More

The tub was nearly black from stains...I hope it was stains and not mold!... More

Stay away, Spend 10-20 dollars more and stay in some franchised motel where you can complain at-least. Hotel pictures on internet are probably 10-15 years old. Room key, light, telephone, basin water, Internet nothing was working.. They are not cleaning their property at all. Roads are much more cleaner than carpet in the hotel.

Worst hotel experience ever. Was booked for 3 days cancelled after the first night. The blankets had stains and burn holes in it. The box spring had a big visual hole in it. Toilet, carpet, freezer not cleaned. I did not use the bathroom at all. You will not have a good night sleep. The whole atmosphere is a scary... More
