We stayed in the beach building but did not have a view of the ocean. No balcony, the mattresses were so old they caved in, marks on the walls, broken lampshade, the A/C unit in the room was so loud it woke me up often, rust on the bathroom door, popcorn ceiling, it was 100 degrees in the hallway, the...

I had booked a room here in November 2013 through Expedia. Before I left on my trip, I read the horrible reviews and booked a second room at Best Florida Resort. I didn't realize that I was unable to cancel my reservation. After cruising I went to the Best Florida Resort and found out my room was flooded. So I... More

Of Course, if you are looking for hookers and a great time this is the place to be. I wouldn't go back there if they gave it to me for free. The new owners are the type that just milk and milk till the udder is dry. Disgusting, dirty, and old....I stayed only one night, and left for the hotel... More

Like others have said has great location by the buildings are very old & needs a lot of fixing up. Our friend had to change rooms 3 times, broken toilet, broken balcony door. We changed once, our air didn't work. My daughters room had no towels and a dead roach. The breakfast was poor...the beach was nice though.

This hotel is reasonably priced but needs work on the website and in the rooms..you need to verify the type of room you want ahead of time and in which building as there is an additional charge for both a single bed and in another building which is right on the water. We had a difficult stay but the manager... More

I would have given a review rating of a negative value if possible. I had read the reviews on this hotel and knew it was not rated well but my daughter and I wanted to stay in a specific location and on the beach. The price wasn't bad ($84) a night for being on the beach and during Spring break... More

Please choose another hotel if you do not want to live in a totally disgusting hotel. I had to change rooms 5 times before I got a room that went to sleep in and then the bathtub half filled with a green mess that smelled of chlorine. After I complained to management, I got another room at one of their... More
