I am surprised by the positive reviews of this hotel. That is what led us to book a stay here to visit with family during Spring Break. The location is handy to our family, the airport and other attractions; if you could get out of the parking lot. The intersection adjacent to the hotel has to be one of the busiest in Florida. There is also no area nearby that is conducive to walking or running.
I am surprised to read that it has been newly remodeled. They did not get their money's worth. There are many blemishes in the furniture, carpets and walls. The TVs are not HD and there is a very limited channel selection. This is the first hotel that I can remember in years that did not have a channel guide in the room. On three different occasions, our room key cards did not work and we had to return to the lobby to get new cards. This was a challenge as the one elevator in the building is very slow.
The "fitness center" consists of 3 aerobic machines. The pool is small and there is no indication that it was heated. The breakfast was OK and the food was replenished regularly. By the last morning, we just went down the street to an IHOP for a change of choices.
Housekeeping was very spotty. One night, we returned to our room after being out all day to find that our beds had not been made. We also found different numbers of towels in the bathroom each night.
Most of our issues were answered by staff as our fault. (We kept both keys too close to a phone or we must have sent the housekeeping away before they could make our bed.) When we left, no one asked how our stay was. We will not return.
