Not worth the price

Posted Jul 6, 2013
Pros: The pool is very nice.
Cons: Better service from the front desk staff. I dealt with three different people and not one was helpful or pleasant.
Location: The location is ideal for me as it is very close to my family's home, which is the reason for my visit.
The hotel is really showing its age which wouldn't be an issue if the price per night was less. The front desk staff was not helpful or particularly pleasant. I booked two rooms, and one of them had recently had some kind of water issue on the floor. The carpet was still damp and the whole room smelled musty. I've stayed at this hotel several times over the last five years as it is close to my family's home. I will not be staying here again though.

Not what we expected

Posted May 11, 2013
Our room was disappointing. Our bathroom flooded when showering and the entire bathroom floor had water. Our phone was in the bathroom and although this may sound as if we invented the story, it fell on the floor and stopped working. We reported it to the front office and they simply thanked us for letting them know. Unless they are remodeled, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Previous stay was great but...

Posted May 10, 2013 on Hotels
We stayed at The Avenue a few months ago and were very pleased with the hotel and especially the customer service. This stay was a bit different. Both times we booked through hotels.com and both times we put in rooms in the very back building (hope that's not their MO for hotels.com bookings) which wasn't particularly convenient. The first half of our 2nd stay the person cleaning our room did a really mediocre job. The remainder of the stay the room was well taken care of. Also, the internet was not working most of our stay. I don't know if it was because we were so far away from the lobby or if they were just having issues but I do factor free internet into the cost of the room when determining value and that was really a tipping point. I will probably give it one more shot (we have family in Lakeland that we visit often) but if the service hasn't improved next time it will be our last.
