Verified Reviews of Winter Haven Gardens Inn & Banquet Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Mediocre Stay"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We were only there the one night, but our fridge was full of someone else's food, the floor beside and under the fridge was soaked all the way out to the foot of the beds, there were no extra toilet rolls, and no bedspreads. When I informed the front desk about the food, someone did come and remove it but as far as the wet floor, nothing there. We wouldn't have stayed another night.
