We booked through Priceline.com, and it was a good stay. Only one night, but we'll be back. Close to all kinds of food, and also to the UF movement disorder center. Everybody was friendly, the room was clean and well kept. Although we didn't use it, I like the intimate pool area. relaxing! Breakfast was good as well.

This hotel was nothing like the photos presented on the internet. I reserved two (2) rooms because the location was near my destination. The television remotes in both rooms did not work. The towels were dirty and to top everything off, roaches were seen in one of the rooms! I will never stay there again!

Overall, the hotel was not well maintained. The carpets in the common areas and hallways were obviously dirty and needed vacuuming. The walls of my room were stained and dirty, particularly around the molding near the floor. There were several pubic hairs in my shower when I first got into my room. There was a large, squished bug stuck to...
