Had both Hallmark channels.
Everything. I had to clean tub before I could shower.The shower curtain and grout were covered in black mold, and the tub drained slow so I was standing in water backup. The floor and sheets were like being on the beach. The continental breakfast was joke
Nothing. This was the second-worst hotel I can remember staying at.
Everything! The room was filthy: my socks blackened just walking on the floor, and someone else's long hair covered the shower. The lights did not work, and there were no clothes hangers. I went to the front desk and had to wait 20 minutes.
No obvious insect infestations.
Desk staff couldn't have been less welcoming or less concerned about his job. Room was dirty, sheets had obvious stains and stuff that could be wiped off, crumbs on tv table, I didn't stay long enough to see more. The place felt unsafe, too.
Based on the price and location, it met my expectations. I was very close to UF and the price was one of the lowest for the area. It's not a Marriott, but I also didn't pay Marriott prices.
It is a quiet hotel not far from most in-town destinations, the University, the natural history museum, the restaurants, etc. etc.
The so called breakfast is among the stingiest selection I have experienced, no hot food except coffee.
