The sheets and bathroom were clean, but the rest of the hotel was filthy. The chair was stained, trash behind the tv and behind the curtains. Huge roach on the wall in the 5th floor hallway. The front desk clerk finally killed it with his shoe and a spray bottle filled with some unknown substance. The towels were either stained, threadbare, or had holes. The toilet ran from the second we got there until the time we left. The pool was cloudy and gross. This was the second time we stayed here. It definitely went down hill. It was not like this last year. Never again.
We had booked this hotel as we heard it was close to Busch Gardens which we were attending the next day and had this hotel booked for 2 nights. We arrived late as we were coming from Washington and when we went to check in we were greeted by a very helpful man at the front desk.
Upon check-in, the male staff said all he had left was a room on the top floor which he said he had to take us up to make sure the room was ok. We went in the elevator and the glass windows were filthy and looks like they had never been cleaned.
When we go to the first room, the staff had to go in first and would not let us in. He came out and said this room is not good, and proceeded down the hall to look at another room. While we were walking down the hall we asked why a lot of the room doors were open and he said that is because there are people here who no one another, however this was just before midnight, so not sure if we believed him. We also saw 1 lady stick her head out the door to look what was going on.
We got to the 2nd room and again the man had to go in first to check it out. He came out and said this room is good and he will get us a fridge and couple more pillows. We proceeded into the room and at first noticed an extreme odor in the room, the wall paper was coming off the wall and the tap in the bathroom area wasn't working properly. He came back up with the pillows and fridge and we said this room will not work and needed another room.
When we go to the 3rd room at the end of the hall it also had an odor to it but at this point we needed a place to sleep as I had 2 young kids. However when we went to sit on the bed we noticed the sheets were dirty and had stains all over them. Also it was right beside the train tracks and shook the room when the train went by.
We ended up leaving the hotel at this point and found another hotel in the area that was clean.
I highly recommend you do not stay at this hotel as everything about it is not good. The only positive point was the man working at the front desk was very helpful with the situation that we were in.
