This property was run down. Staff walked around smoking marijuana, door latch not intact to enforce safety, holes in the wall, bathtub dirty, furniture worn, and hot water warm at its best.

It's okay, probably won't stay again.
It's fine. The rooms are hastily updated, it's an aging property. Woke up to pressure washing outside the door as the property was being re-painted.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I get that it's Florida, but humidity was so bad in the room that every metal surface was rusting, and the vinyl floor was actually slippery because of all the condensation. Ice machines were not working and just in general the property is not being maintained

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
No one at check in for 10 minutes. First room had a 100% paint fume odor. Second room had a 50% paint fume odor. There was no trash can in the room or bathroom. The floor was filthy. The laminate wood by the bathroom floor sunk when I stepped on it. Room phone did not work. People in the parking lot outside the room made lots of noise for an hour at night. Was kept awake in the middle of the night by construction type sounds at the hotel. Worst hotel ever. It was a No Quality Inn. Will never stay at another Quality Inn.
