They are not in business anymore. It would have been nice if they let Expedia and their customers know it.

Horrid Customer Service.
Never actually stayed there. I made my reservation 6 months in advance. Called the hotel 2 days before my arrival to inquire about check in procedures and they informed me my reservation had been cancelled. There was never any communication to this effect. Had I not called them I would have showed up with no room. Fortunately, Hotels.com was able to get me a replacement room on short notice and made up the price difference. So Hotels.com get a stellar rating for fixing the worst possible customer service ever from The Vue Lake Tarpon hotel.
