“Rude!!! Cynthia and lying staff!”

  , Saint Petersburg
I've been staying at this hotel AT LEAST once a week for 2 1/2 years and sometimes even on the weekends. Seen this hotel go through dozens of staff members, managers and G.M.'s. The hotel isn't very clean but since I spend so much money and just want a place to sleep because that's about the only time I spend off the beach and only live 20 mins away from St. Pete Beach and hotel, I'm not too concerned about the cleanliness. I wouldn't look at this hotel as a top rated clean hotel. One thing I do do is first thing I have to take a towel and mop the "white" tile floor because it is disgusting and the towel proves it. Has mold smell when you walk in room. Usually find pieces of food, wrappers and things underbed from previous patrons. They can't seem to keep staff for very long. I did get a discount rate because of how often I do stay there because the location is very good on the beach. You would not believe what I see they charge visitors that are unaware of better surrounding hotel prices. Depending on who you contact you just might get a different price. I've seen it myself. There is one woman, Cynthia, that you won't want to deal with. Most the old staff that is still around are polite and treat with respect. However, I've seen them come and go at this place my whole life since I was born and raised here. Cynthia has to be the most rude, unappreciative woman I've dealt with yet in many years. I've seen her drive away walk in's that want to stay after staying at the beach all day and don't feel like driving home. A new G.M. also has made some changes NOT visitor friendly. Especially to the people that stay there at min WEEKLY. Staying there so often I have of course got to know the people that work behind the scene. Housekeeping, maint, etc. The new G.M. will quote me my rate but if Cynthia is working the front desk expect to pay more and don't count on getting into your room until 3 PM even though almost all the rooms are empty from night before. Most any hotel will give you the keys when your room is ready. I've been lied to many times by Cynthia about how rooms aren't ready until 3 but since I have know the staff and know the system they use I look at the sheets and almost every room is available to unload your belongings for the day. Anyone else there will usually try and do what they can to get u in when you get there. A new G.M. now has come again most likely because they wonder why this hotel isn't filling it's rooms with hotels next door are at c
