First room they gave us had ashes all over the dresser tops and beds un made Went back to office asked for another room Which they gave us

But the next room smelled like a dog lived in there for 2 years!! So I staterted the coffee machine to try and change the smell!! After showers, and 3 cups of coffee you could barely smell the dog smell!!

I stayed 6 days there The breakfast was good My stay was accommodated

The temp dropped in the middle of the night and the heater did not work I was provided with extra blankets and a space heater I was also suggested to a different room but it wasn’t clean and that heater didn’t work either The last few days of my stay was hot so no heater needed I feel as though I should have credited for that one night but I didn’t want to make a big deal out of it The front office staff was nice and very helpful to make sure my stay was nice I wish I would have had my room cleaned once during my stay but it was over the holiday Overall, it is nice Not sure if I will be going back tho

Clean enough but not the best Lobby staff was fine, cleaning staff does not speak or read English NO “Do Not Disturb” tags available in your room

Housekeeping entered rooms with “Do not Disturb” posted on the door and entered without knocking Someone stole a Kindle from a room in our groupBreakfast was standard quality: pre-cooked meats, powder eggs, waffle maker, cereals, pre-packaged baked goods, juices, etcThey made copies of DL and debit cards for depositsHopefully will not be staying there again

We have rented over the period of two winters at what is now Lakeside North RV Resort We were at this park during the transition from the old ownership to the new in the winter of 2018-19 We paid our rent and electricity on time each and every month in full

We were told by the old managers from before we arrived that when we departed our last month would be prorated, and a refund would be issued for the unused lot rent The ownership changed and the present new owner did not honor this agreement and charged us for two weeks we were not there after we had checked out The owners said if we wished they could charge us the weekly rate for the two weeks we had resided for the month which would amount to far more than the monthly rate, and we would owe them more money We had already paid for the month along with the used electricity and decided to just let it go However, we did make it known very clearly that we were displeased with being subjected to this type of business practiceIn mid 2019 we contacted the office person at Lakeside North RV Resort The contact individual being familiar with our prior issue reassured us that the owners refund policy of unused rent had changed, and a refund of the prorated amount of unused rent would be issued upon our departure This policy was reiterated again upon check in, as well as throughout our stay The rental agreement was for $38500 per month plus electricity A deposit for $17500 would be required of us, and was paid in full With the first month’s electrical bill we noticed many fee’s were added on such as; Drinking/Waste Water Treatment, Trash Service, Internet Service, and Pest Control Treatment The reason as stated by management was it was decided by the owner’s that all resident’s and not just year round resident’s would pay the monthly fee’s from this point forward Even though we had a prior agreement along with our own internet supplier and did not need the parks, had a problem with a rat living in the engine compartment of our vehicle a few days after our arrival, and water supplied that smells like sewage and was discolored we reluctantly paid all these fee’s throughout our stay We informed the management as Covid19 events evolved that we would be staying on into June When we knew of our date of departure we let management know the date we would be departing At this time it was again stated by management that all final bills should settle just fine with our security deposit of $17500 and prorated projected partial return of $10267 This was not the case as we received a final bill upon our return home that showed our closing charges in total being deducted from our $17500 security deposit The closing charges consisting of electricity usage along with full rate monthly fees with no pro-ration for the time we were not there The pro-ration of the last month’s rent was also not accounted for and no refund of these monies accompanied the final accounting I contacted the management only to be told that the owner said they were not going to prorate the monthly rent and issue any refund of those monies

The staff will go out of their way to do anything for you here It’s an older hotel I remember when it was brand new But it’s expanded its facilities and again the staff will go out of their way to do anything for you

I had special needs it didn’t even they didn’t even blink an eye they just said we’ll fix it we’ll help what can we do? That kind of service is worth a lot when you travel

Paul Stefanelli

Rooms were not cleaned and were extremely dirty The toilet leaked toilet water and was not fastened to the floor They would not give us another room because they were booked full and we had to use the pool bathroom

We only stayed for the first night and then we left because of the unsanitary conditions, they would not refund the second night We are a couple in our 50s and we do not expect unreasonable quality for this hotel but we do expect to have health hazards fixed before we arrive The website says they do extra cleaning for covid-19 but in reality they told us they are not cleaning because of covid-19

Poor experience overall I arrived and locals were treating the pool as their personal pool They were not staying at the hotel

The elevators were disgusting For $250 a night you would expect at least a refrigerator and microwave but nope I’m not sure what was going on with this hotel But definitely not again Called customer service the next day They acted like they couldn’t be bothered After contacting customer support filing a complaint nothing happened Called a second time was hung up on I received a call from the manager of this establishment she was very friendly and helpful She went above and beyond to make the situation right After everything I would definitely give them another shot the rooms were clean and presentable

This place is a dump I also stayed in room 213 So dirty I had to wear shoes the entire time

Carpet, wall, furniture and bathroom covered in stains I am pretty sure they don’t change the sheets but instead flip them inside out Pretty sure there are bed bugs No fridge either which I only discovered after ordering food to save for the next day NEVER AGAIN Never a hampton inn again !

Logan Marcum

This hotel hasn’t been cleaned in months I spent a few nights here in room 213 two weeks ago the pictures attached show what I walked into The first picture is under the table across from the elevator first level

The others are of my room I have more but you get the point I would have switched hotels immediately had there been any vacancies The rates are astronomical but the rooms look like you are staying in a $3000 a night hotel I have probably stayed in this hotel 20-30 nights over the past 10 years but cleanliness has been forgotten I used to be a diamond member

I’ve stayed at this locaction several times and I always enjoy it The rooms are a little dated but they are very spacious The rooms within the main building are a bit nicer

The building to the right has a bit of an issue with gnats and some flooding in heavy rain The lake in the back is beautiful The employees are always friendly and accommodating

James Morgan

I booked my reservation through hotelscom and the price was desent the staff were good less threats on a A laminated sheet of paper in the room stating there going to charge my card if I don’t take my own trash out hopefully they don’t expect me to wash my sheets before I leave The room and hotel is fairly clean and in a good location nice bar on the water

I’m very unhappy about the $15000 deposit they keep for over a week So know I have to keep calling my bank to work for money I already worked for to see that I get it back $15000 is twice the amount of the cost of the room The days in on the north side of the airport in Miami mall had a $5000 deposit And the days inn in ftpierce on US1 was only $10000 I would Imagine they will keep going up on the deposit charge I don’t appreciate days inn playing with my money like that, makes me not wanna ever comeback or event recommend this place I book through hotelscom to reduce my spending not increase it

Do not stay here!! They will rob you! My husband has been staying here several weeks Me and my kids and little 2 pound dog came down early hours of April 30 The pet policy was animal friendly

We go out and come back and my husband is charged 300 dollars they said said we charged you 2 weeks for having a pet because they didn’t know when we showed up My husband then goes and asks the manager to see the piece of paper he signed with the pet policy on it and she says no Hum not fishy at all A few days pass and my kids and I leave to go back home They do not offer cleaning services Before we left we picked up our trash and put it in a trash bag The dirty towels were in a pile on the floor My husband was at work and they knew he was staying until today so they had no business going into his room They saw me and the kids leave and proceeded to go in my husband’s room which they had no authority to do and charged him another 250 dollars for a messy room It was still being lived in and it was not destroyed This lady the manager will rob you for as much as she can Look at the other reviews she’s done it before Oh and the camera on our side of the building doesn’t work, thats really convenient We stayed in room 209 Her workers I’m pretty sure are in on the scheme too, when we left they were sitting outside and they saw us leave This lady is dishonest, and a thief If you’re reading this please know, please know this will eventually catch up with you Its gonna suck when you have to go to jail for robbing all these people including us Karma hun, it will get you too You aren’t immune Your days of freedom are numbered People please do not stay here Check the reviews before booking

This a hotel was excellent!! We were visiting family and Okeechobee and it’s very small and there’s a lot of mom and pop hotels but this has all of the amenitiesA wonderful chaises lounge chair which I thoroughly enjoyed A great springy bed, soft and hard pillows that are labeled with embroidered pillow cases

There is a fantastic layout in the bathroom & microwave/Mini refrigeratorClimate controlled room well-thought-out little tablesMy only issue was that the l receptionist has a very soft spoken voice and I thought it was peculiar that that was her jobShe’s efficient at getting you checked in but everyone was struggling to hear her Other than that I highly highly recommend this place at the!

As always, you can count on a Holiday Inn! My husband and I came here for a turkey hunt I depend on these google reviews on hotels and restaurants to help me choose This property didn’t disappoint

The place was super clean, staff was extremely friendly Did I say how clean? I just can’t stay anywhere if someone left a bad review about it being dirty This was a great place to stay I would stay again if coming this far south There was a bbq trailer in front of the hotel that was also great Someone was always cleaning the property Very safe and very clean I wish I would have taken pictures to share with you! Beat one yet! Thank you Holiday Inn!
