Disgusting - Run Down -Dirty

Had just arrived in Tarpon Springs at night. On my laptop I found Tarpon Inn. Booked while at dinner from my computer. I booked just by looking and reading their web site. However when we arrived the place looked nothing like the web site. Inn had none of the amenities stated. Very bad location. Dirty disgusting old and decapitated. The upstairs walk way dirty and paint spattered. Paint cans etc all over the place. No Lobby, no Tour Desk. Talked through a very small window. Out side a total mess. Door to room old and unsafe. Room had an old bed and disgusting bed linens. There was no way I would take my luggage in that room, use the bathroom or park my 2019 car there. One window way up at the ceiling so can't look out. Room smelled. Stated no dogs but other renters had dogs. No pool, no spa. There was a man in parking lot yelling about the despicable rundown place. The amenities they offer are not there so how can they state NO REFUND? DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE. Looking into the "false advertising". I want my money refunded. Carol from NYS

Disgusting is a gross understatement

For the record I am an honorably discharged disabled veteran. The room smelled like a combination of stale urine and curry upon entry. I had a large breed of dog (dogo) and could not find another place close by at the time that would accept him. I decided to stay so I didn't get ticketed for vagrancy for sleeping in car. I awoke the next morning with hundreds of cockroaches crawling through my dog's food. I carried it down and showed it to the owner who immediately accused me of bringing them with me. He became hostile and started yelling at me and told me to get out when I demanded a refund. I called the department of health and reported them. The inspector who gave this place the ok for business should be fired and/or jailed and the owners of this place should be fined, jailed and then forced to live in these rooms without the use of bug spray. The worst part is that there are several mentally disabled and elderly people living there who seem to have no other options. When I called my bank to have the charges reversed I was informed that they debited my card instead of charging it to credit after I EXPRESSLY and REPEATEDLY told them to run my card as credit. After leaving I found a Quality Inn down the street (6 miles or so) that had comparable rates, clean sheets, accepted my dog, and has ZERO COCKROACHES. Anyone who gives this place a positive rating is either a frog, a family member, or has been paid to write a positive review.
