First of all, this IS NOT a Howard Johnson property!!! For this alone, I feel that I have been misled into booking a room here! The name of the place is M Star Hotel, but it isn't even a hotel...it is a dingy, dismal, dusty, rinky-dink semblance of a motel. The price I paid for a room here is way TOO MUCH, considering its very poor quality! When I checked out, I wasn't given a receipt. The hotel clerk told me that because I made my reservation online via Booking.com, I will be issued a receipt by the latter. I have yet to see this receipt. In summary, I would say that it is wrong to mislead/misrepresent the properties that you promote here. Had I had an inkling of what to expect, I wouldn't have booked a room at the M Star Hotel!!! Overall rating: Very, very POOR for the price I paid!!!
The only good thing about this property is its location. I came to run the Sarasota Half Marathon and the property is only about 15 minutes away from the start line of the race.
