"Worst hotel experience EVER!!!"

My husband and I put a lot of time and effort into planning our first trip to Tampa with the hopes of reconnecting with my estranged daughter. Obviously a trip that involved a lot of emotion, anxiety and uneasiness, so we decided to bring along our two dogs. We spent countless hours reading reviews on many different hotels before making our decision. We consider ourselves clean freaks, so cleanliness was at the top of our priority list. We decided on this property based on the friendliness of the evening desk clerk who answered our phone call, the positive feedback from other customers and the fact that they would allow our pets with no additional fee. The driving distance from Wilmington, NC to Tampa, FL is approximately eleven hours and before we decided to hit the road at midnight. We inquired about the early check in policy at this hotel. We were told it was not a problem and it would cost an additional $25 for a check in prior to 3pm. It was a long drive to say the least and when we arrived in front of the hotel at 11:30am, I was on the phone with my mother so I stayed in the car while my husband went inside to get us checked in. He came back out within minutes explaining the room would not be ready until 2:00 and proceeded to pull out of the hotel while I continued with my phone conversation. After 20 minutes of driving in no particular direction I asked him to go back to the hotel. I was extremely sore from sitting in the car for twelve hours at this point. I went to the front desk this time and the manager tried to explain to me that even though check out time is 11am, they had no rooms available for us at 12:15 in the afternoon. I explained to her that I have worked in many hotels and I was aware of how procedures worked. I then explained to her that we would just cancel our reservation and go elsewhere because I was exhausted. Well, surprise, surprise!! All of a sudden within seconds she had a room ready for us. After getting done with the check in process, she asked for the $25 early check in fee which turned into $28 with taxes and I watched my husband hand over the exact amount of $28 in cash. After getting to our room the smell of urine hit me in the face even though the floor was tile. I guess it was the one 4x6 rug that was laying next to the bed. We were so tired that I wasn?t about to switch rooms especially after the first impression and headache I had already been forced to deal with. We had planned on staying three nights at this hotel, but decided one night was enough and cancelled our reservation. The topper was when we got back to our room around 11pm and a bill had been slid under our door stating we owed the early check in fee. My husband took the bill down stairs and was told they would have to call the manager in the morning. In the morning we awoke to ?another? bill under our door with the fee still being requested. He went to the front desk again!! The clerk called the manager at home who denied taking any cash from my husband. Seriously?? There is a camera right behind the desk and he asked them to review their own footage. Finally the clerk agreed to believe his story, but did mention they would be reviewing the tape. Very unprofessional from the beginning to the end. Don?t stay here unless you like to be spoken to like you are a nuisance and a thief. Not to mention the shower water pressure was terrible, the size of the pool is way too small, and they only stocked the bathroom with one wash cloth, one hand towel. The room looked nothing like the pictures and it was not that clean either. Regardless, I can turn my cheek to a lot, but being accused of not paying our bill and the actual manager denying she took our cash was a bit much. Will NEVER stay here again.
This hotel was equal to those of double to price or more..granite countertops, luxurious bedding, beautiful tile, really comfortable and well-appointed! Would stay there again for certain! The Hotel staff was very accomodating as well. Pets are even allowed at no charge.
We had a great experience at this hotel due to the great service specially by David the employee during nights. He was very serviceable and help my family out a lot. The manager on duty was great too. Hotel was very clean and the non smoking rule is great because the rooms didn't had a funky smell like other hotels do. The are was great also close to many restaurants and high way. I highly recommend this hotel.
Room was nice and clean. Cleaning staff nice and polite. Front desk helpful and quite pleasant. The included breakfast had some hot items and that was fine. Pool was small but nice and clean. But the rooster can be annoying! There is a beautiful rooster who mysteriously joined the hotel grounds about two years ago. He has a tendency to crow about 5:00 am. He is in front of the hotel in the treed area near the front parking lot. Ask for a room in back if you don't want to hear his morning wake up.
This is our place to stay when we come to Tampa. The rooms are great and the service even better. The motel is just far enough off Bruce B Downs to keep noise from being a problem. Although you will find a rooster out the front of the motel in the morning. Kind of gives it a country atmosphere.
