We needed a room after the FL vs. FL State game and based on Travelocity reviews thought this would be ok. We were not expecting a fancy hotel... but a clean, non smoking room for the night. We checked in after midnight (Front desk lady was very nice) and I had to sign a non-smoking agreement for our room. Upon entering the room, it clearly had been smoked in A LOT. I called the front desk to see if there was a non-smoking room and I also did not want to be charged a smoking fee. There were no other rooms...sold out. The room was filthy (dirt and hair on floors, dirty bedding, blood on walls, something smeared all over TV screen). If we could have gotten a refund for the $160 we paid, we would have left. Honestly, this was at best a one star hotel. We slept for 5 hours, got up, and left. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
