Verified Reviews of Winter Haven Gardens Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Horrible hotel should not be listed for tournaments."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This property was dirty, outdated and out right nasty. We entered to brown stains on our bed sheets in all four rooms. One bed was wet from unknown liquid as well as substances on the bed head. All rooms smelled like cigarettes. Overall, it was an unpleasant experience and horrendous property for the team as well as parents.

"Please do not stay here."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This was hands down the worst hotel I've even stayed in. I told my boyfriend I would rather sleep in my car than spend the night here. It's located in a sketchy area, right next to train tracks (which you could hear loudly from inside the room) I was being cat called in the hallways while trying to find my room, I felt very unsafe walking around by myself. Upon entering the room there was an odd smell of mold and cigarettes not to mention the cockroach that was waiting for us on the floor, the bathroom door wouldn't shut, there was chipped paint in the tub not to mention the three other roaches we encountered before turning in our keys 45mins after checking in. Everyone that works there is highly unpleasant and they are refusing to give us a refund despite us not even staying there for an hour after check in. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $40 and stay and the Marriot down the street. Never ever ever cheeping out on a hotel ever again. Lesson learned.

"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.
