“Pleasant Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2008

It was confusing finding this hotel because you have to go around another hotel to get there. When we arrived, there was a cop in the parking lot so we were wondering about the area. But we found out that he was only there to use the restroom. The rooms were nice and clean. The breakfast was ok. Waffles or something would make it better. Great rooms for the price. The hotel was close to downtown which was perfect for us. I was happy overall.

After reading the other reviews, I can't believe we stayed at the same place! We stayed at this hotel form the FSU game last weekend. Thankfully it was only for one night, anymore and we would have slept in the car.

This hotel is filthy. You can smell the mildew the minute you walk in to the lobby. The room wasn't any better, the tub was dirty and the toilet barely flushed. The towels were hard and the bed linens were stained. It is in a scary part of town, right beside a bridge and near a train track. There didn't seem to be any type of security other than the occasional police cruiser that drove around. The parking lot was filled with beer bottles and cigarette butts and wasn't swept while we were there. There were drunk partiers banging on the doors until around 2:00 AM.

Needless to say, we slept on our beach towels. It was awful, but we were trapped. They charge a full night plus penalty if you try and leave. The night's cost was doubled because of the football game.

Don't go here, pay the extra $ for the Hyatt!

I wasn't sure what to expect when we got there, the lobby didn't really look like the pictures on the website, and gave us the impression that maybe we should have picked another place to stay... but we checked in anyway, and were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the room.. it was extremely clean. We're told that it's not the best part of town, but we only stayed overnight because we came for the football game. It was perfect for our needs.

  • Liked — It was very clean
  • Disliked — Nothing in particular
