We stayed for 3 evenings before a week condo elsewhere, and then scheduled one night at the end of our vacation before flying out. Two nights after we'd checked out, I received a phone call from Ted on Sunday morning, canceling our reservation for the following Friday night because they didn't have room for us. I had reserved it with... More

Close to the beach, stores and night life, but not very clean. Our feet were black from walking on the floor, so we washed utensils, plates and cups before using them, even the chairs. We will not go back.

If your looking for the Ritz Carlton then this is not the property for you. If your looking for personal service by the owner, friendly staff and in the heart of everything this place is for you. Rooms have no carpet, which is really nice. They are cleaned everyday, and if you need anything at all (even a beach towel)... More

If you have a choice don't go there, the hotel need an overhaul. Everything is old and stained. The pillows were flat and yellow. The bed spread was stained and. Although the hotel is non smoking, the room reeked of cigarettes.

This motel is very highly recommended by me and my family. I have been there three times already with my family and every time we had very good time. Rooms are clean with small kitchen and no carpet which was important to me. Rooms cleaned every day. There is an outdoor pool and grill area. Motel is placed in very... More

If you're looking for high-end amenities or a more raucous spring break-type atmosphere, then you're definitely better off at a major chain hotel several miles south. My girlfriend and I spent several days here lounging by the motel's charming pool and engaging with the world-traveling guests that filled up the rooms. Our room had a small kitchen, an outdoor grill... More

Yes, it was clean, but, frankly, that's about the only positive thing I can say about Tropicaire. Everything was dated. Looks like it hasn't had anything done to it since 1955. Furniture, lighting fixtures, bathroom - all old and unmatched. Most of the guests have been going there for years, so it's an old (and I mean old) friends club.... More
