“This place sucks!”

  , Tampa
The first time I stayed here a few years ago it was fine so I decided to go back. When I first got there they wanted a prepay which that was fine....until he took a photocopy of my credit card without my permission. He stated they had to have it to prove my credit card had been given to them. I told him he was not going to have a photocopy of it...I have had my credit card stolen before but he still argued with me. This IS NOT COOL! I paid with an alternate method. I got into the room and it was very grungy. the bathroom looked like it wasn't clean...the tub looked moldy! I asked for another room. They granted it and it looked a lot cleaner. After a few hours I noticed something black on the wall. It was a smashed bug so I look closer to the walls and ceiling and there was bugs smashed in a lot of places...even the bathroom ceiling. then I noticed the baby roaches running around the room!. I know this place is old...which old I can handle but not filthy and infested!. I reported it to the management the next morning (I noticed the bugs late in the night) and they said they would take care of it, but never once did they even offer to give a discount....they actually didn't even seemed surprised about the bugs. Then about 2:30 am someone started vacuuming. Very noisy. The coffee pot in the lobby where they serve continental breakfast looks like it hadn't been cleaned in months...very gross. Didn't want to eat there. I DO NOT RECCOMMEND THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!!! This place was not very expensive...but I guess you get what you pay for.
