The hotel is very decent. The location is convenient! The room is what you pay for. It’s nice, clean, doesn’t smell bad. AC works great. Bed was ok. Now, the night shift MALE employee is super nice, both times I’ve stayed he was a pleasure to talk to... now the day time FEMALE employee “Sheeba” over the phone? SUPER RUDE. I seriously considered canceling my stay and never staying again JUST because of the way she spoke to me over the phone. But since she doesn’t have that same energy in person it saved it. Either way. She needs to learn how to speak to Guests in Hospitality. If you want smooth sailing, steer clear of Sheeba, until she learns how to control her tone and how to speak to guests.

Costumer service not friendly at all,they charged us before check in ,everything stinks,dirty floor and bed sheets dirty and hair in bed sheets. Another thing is that they didn’t wait until the check in process in person if the check in start from 3 to 5 they take the money out from your card at 3:00 and if you want change the card information for the payment they give the room to another person without letting us know, more than 20 persons staying with us and we never going to come back to this Hotel

We are not aware of this specific situation. From reading the content it appears as if your credit card that was holding the room declined or was not valid and because we are extremely busy, we would of pre authorized your credit card to make sure that you were securing the room. Otherwise we would be holding a room for a possible "no-show" and then lose out on revenue by holding an empty room. However, we do not do this until around 7-8pm. Not 3pm. Sorry this happened to you.

Old, run down hotel that’s more like a motel. Giant cockroach on the bathroom floor, dust all over the hairdryer and TV, the room was damp and muggy, bed was hard and old, homeless people loitering around outside. I got there at night and just needed a cheap place to crash, but I wouldn’t come back here again, even for that. The only things that werr great was Taco Bell shared the same parking lot the big Publix across the street that’s a 2 min walk. Also - travelers beware! There’s a $30 deposit that is not mentioned when booking, but they collect it during check-in and it must be paid for separately from the reservation.

Sorry you were not satisfied with your stay. We do not allow loitering on our property and are very strict with this. The other issues were never brought to our attention until now. The security deposit is standard within the hotel industry and we offer the lowest deposit as many other hotels charge in excess of $100 deposit which would cover any damages from the guests.

Horrible. Walked to room. Dark, dirty and smelly. Spent 2 minutes there and left. It was 10:30 PM and went to Fiends safe, clean place to stay. Wasted our nights payment on room, but atleast we were clean and safe.
