Family Traveling with Teens
This must be the most rundown and disgustingly dirty, unsafe place I have ever been to! My wife and son were so frightened of the area, beggars that were hanging around that we did not stay, I chose to drive back to Orlando 220 miles away rather than stay there. The description of the quality of the rooms was way off bat, and if the motel has been refurbished then they need to get their money back from the builders! Themselves on reception didn't even know what sort of room we had booked, and didn't care anyway. The room was damp, the bedding was damp and not very clean, the room only had a single light bulb. The flooring was dirty, the floor tiles and wall tiles were cracked in places. The kitchenette was unusable and the fridge looked like it hadn't worked in years. The bathroom, had no toilet roll, the sink was full of cigarette burns, the bath was scummy as we're the tiles and the toilet was not even bolted to the floor! I would not have stayed here if they paid me. ...

The staff could care less, the room was grimy and 1 step above a crack house, it was noisy all night and someone was going around knocking on windows during the night. The doors did not close completely as they looked as though they had been bent by a SWAT team in the past.

The surrounding area felt a little dangerous, and was not a great area to walk around.The pool was spectacular and clean, and the redeeming element of my stay here. The staff, (both at the desk and maid) could have been more personal and welcoming--eye contact, "welcome to...," "if you need any help...,"etc. The room was comfortable, and clean, but could have been taken up a notch with the addition of shower mat to step on after bathing,a shower curtain, ice machine and drinking glasses-- the lack of made it feel like a 1 star hotel. King size bed was plus. ...

The hotel was nothing like the site said it would be. The housekeeping was terrible, they did not change the sheets and there were never enough clean towels. The housekeepers had attitudes when we asked them for more towels. We also found out that the hotel was located in a not so secure area and that there are some activities that go on in that area.

Hotel has all basics and is located at reasonable distance from beaches and nightlife. The actions of the staff made me believe there may be some suspicious activities going around. When I was late to check-out (under an hour) someone that looked like a janitor appeared at my door asking to pay him directly the $20 late check-out fee right there at my hotel room door, which I refused and told him I would do that at the front desk, upon check-out. A few minutes later, a maid appeared at my door requesting the same. I don't think I will be coming back nor recommend anyone to stay there.

I would recommend this motel to people traveling for fun, without families. I had my family and we had a good time, but probably would stay somewhere else with family. Having said that, we were treated great!

If I could I wanted my money back! I was embarrassed to stay at this hotel! It's one of the worst!

Priceline and Motel Blu screwed me on this one, I book the hotel since I could book now and pay on check-in as stated. That was all wrong where I show up and my reservation was canceled leading me to search for a room while a major event was happening meaning it took awhile.
