Dante's Forgotten 10th Circle
My friend and I “stayed” here after driving back from Key West. We really aren’t picky about appearances as long as it’s comfortable and safe; those are two things we look for in a hotel (motel) especially being so far from home. We got a room here and it was dirty, the carpets were sticky, the room smelled of mildew, and the bed linens were old and stained.. There wasn’t any hot water, and the shower door wouldn’t close. Water was obviously splashing out since the door wouldn’t catch and I noticed an inlet with wires exposed right in front of the door! I got out immediately and I heard my friend screaming. She plugged in the television and it sparked, singing her fingers. Not to mention, the TV was on a small weak stand that caused it to lean as if it could fall over any second. While we were changing (or about to), we saw that one of the windows was open and it wouldn’t close. We saw a man walked by and was trying to look in. We decided to leave immediately and while she loaded our luggage I returned the key. It was 7:00p.m on a weekend and the front desk was already closed. My friend had to call them from the car while I kept ringing the doorbell and was trying to ignore two very scary looking men trying to take our key because they didn’t want to pay for a room. When the rude attendant finally removed the cardboard from the window, I gave her the key and jumped in the car while it was moving… no kidding. We were there about a half hour before shooting out of there. If you are traveling, there are more decent looking places you can stay in for a few dollars more, seriously. Oh and the Laundromat is just a washer and dryer under a porch. We paid a little more than what we paid here for a beachfront hotel with valet parking in Miami Beach, and they had continental breakfast. Even in Homestead, there are nicer looking hotels for less $$$ unless you want to pay for the creepiness factor, then you’re getting your money’s worth. If you want hygiene and peace of mind then please stay as far away from here as possible. We travel a lot, and this motel has become one the most commonly told of our "horror stories."
