4/10 Fair

There's a reason why this hotel was cheap, cockroaches, spiders in shower and shower didn't even work, mini fridge didn't even work, had to cancel. No one at front desk after 8 pm to help with issues. At least next day staff canceled next reservation and refunded money.

2/10 Poor

The place is horrible, I went to sleep in my car instead. I did not wanted to sleep in that dirty bed. Also the windows are broken, they do not close so I didn't feel safe sleeping there.

2/10 Poor

This place is so bad. I stayed at the bungalow and it was so nasty I wanted to run away but unfortunately we were at ocean world and went to check in late it was 9pm and I had my kids , there was no place I could have found another room that late, the towels had marks on them, thankfully we had our own towels. The windows lock are broken I couldn't sleep because of safety, I was up all night making sure my kids were safe since the windows don't lock. The place is so run down and smells like dogs right when you walk in. I would definitely never stay there again.
