    • 4.0.Fair

      Never again

      The rented us a room that a water faucet on the bathtub that leaked extremely bad and had for awhile given the fact that the drain was rusted out. When I went down to complain about the radiating leaky faucet noise coming from our bathroom, they asked if I needed a maintenance man? I told them this is not a quick fix. This room should have never been rented. It’s been a problem for so long the tub was rusted out. They offered me another room. We got there so late and if my family wasn’t settled in I would have taken it. We have stayed here several times over the years and never had a problem. This was by far the worst. You shouldn’t have to pay this much for the name and get a room in poor condition.

    • 8.0.Very good

      Staff great, hotel not so much.

      Staff is great but hotel is being renovated, and it sure needs it. Very noisy during the day. AC is really really loud in room. Sometimes no hot water. On and off sputtering faucet. Pull out sofa mattress is beyond awful and that's from someone who can sleep anywhere, or so I thought. Restaurant still isn't open. Missing top sheets on 2 beds. Duvets without insert and insert without duvet cover. Had to ask for sheets for pull out sofa, even though I requested it when I talked to hotel to confirm reservation. Ice machine had been removed from my floor, even though the sign was still there. Great location next to Moffitt. This was the second stay recently and only stayed here again because I was assured that we wouldn't have these problems again. Silly me, I believed them. Too bad because the staff really is great.

      Honest feedback about a hotel

      We had booked adjoining rooms that were not clean (had bugs, pubic hair in the shower, brown floor in one shower, smelled bad). The staff was nice and relocated us to better rooms that were still marginal. Until the upgrade is complete, I wouldn't recommend this hotel as a 3 star. Maybe a 1 star.
