We stayed at this resort for 3 nights to wrap up our first vacation with grandchildren 4 and 8 years old. Could not have fallen in to a better area for the kids, perfect location, steps to the beach, back to the pool to shower off and play, all within being able to keep an eye on them without any...

My husband, daughter (11 years old) and I have been visiting this motel for about 6 years twice a year and always manage to have a wonderful time. It is right on the beach, the staff is very nice. Few years back recommended Rainow to our friends/neighbors and they also fell in love with it. They vacation here on a... More

My family has stayed here on and off over the course of 20 years. I’m sad to say, while ROTO still has a bit of charm, the service level has gone down dramatically. My Aunt, Grandmother and I booked two adjoining rooms on the 1st floor in May. We always stay on the lower level, because my Grandmother is nearly... More

This is a great place to stay. It's the second time we've been here with family and not been disappointed. One day I spent the afternoon by the pool with less than 15 people relaxing on the entire grounds (including beach, grassy area, etc.) and then walked a few blocks away to see 100 people crammed into the same physical...

Let's get a few things out of the way: don't come to ROTO expecting room service, cardboard cutout room decorations, or whatever else you've come to expect after staying at a bunch of corporate hotels. This place is Old Florida. And as such, is awesome and a great deal. I stayed in a hotel room for three nights and it... More

Absolutely the most relaxing ten days we've enjoyed in years. The art deco motif, updated room, and friendly, proactive staff provided and experience that we'll relive next year ... we booked two weeks for December 2013. Our room had been recently remodled and was in keeping with the ambiance of Florida beach that was 50 feet from our door. The... More

This little hotel may not be a 5 star but it has been our shining star along with the manager, Adonis for several years. Our snow ski and activities club has made this our "Weekend Getaway" destination for fun in the sun, swimming in the pool & ocean, beach party, cooking & eating extravaganzas and all around great weekend.

This hotel is an ideal place for a family vacation, or for several families traveling together. We have stayed here every year for nearly 15 years. The location is wonderful, right on the beach, with a heated pool in the center of the courtyard. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, the staff is very helpful, and we always feel... More

When we rented the two bedroom apartment, my first impression was this place has a mildew and old smell. The manager did give us febreze but the carpet, cabinets were so old. The beach was nice. The pool had a lot of sand in it. The paint outside was old and and depressing.

This hotel is in a great location on the ocean and near some trendy restaurants, The heated pool was nice and the staff is very friendly but the rooms need some serious updating, my family had two different rooms they were in clean condition but that was it. The bathtubs would take a long time to drain and some of... More
