First and foremost, the front desk agent that works over night and tries to cover his sleeves of tattoos with his sweaters is bluntly rude! I did not feel welcomed at all. I felt more like I can not wait until it was time to check out. He is not helpful at all. He nonchalantly refers you to management whom... More

Hello Shayla D, I am sorry for your bad experience. Our night Audit Brandon is a very courteous employee so I am a bit shocked to hear of this behavior. Management is always here to help so I am not sure why you couldn't get a hold of us. As far as the smell, not sure exact place this was... More

There is a party room on the top floor where they blast music all night. The person at the front desk told me that everyone stays up past midnight and I should get over it. For $100 per night, I should be able to sleep anytime I want.

Hello, The hotel had a banquet going on that ends at midnight. I do not think the front desk told you to get over it but said it would get over at midnight. We are budget friendly and for 100 bucks we surely think we're worth it! Respectfully, Guest Relations Manager More

This hotel is overpriced and lacks any decent facilities. It was dirty and the corridors smelt terrible! My bedroom was not cleaned and I was given attitude when I call reception to task for it to be cleansing! Breakfast was a joke!

Hello bullockm, Sorry for your experience. The hotel is very budget friendly and we strive for a clean and friendly atmosphere. We expect this from our employees. Not attitudes. Sorry this was not what you experienced. Sincerely, Guest Relations Manager More

We stayed here for one night on our honeymoon. We kicked off the trip with a Miami game and this was close to the stadium. The outside of the hotel and the lobby were promising.

Enjoyed the staff, location and overall stay. The reception area is all new, pool great, miniature golf fun and parking is free. Breakfast barely basic though. Get a room high up facing the race track! Book early for football games!
