I had a free 2 night stay at this hotel, due to a Nephew with a great deal @ Groupon. 2 Days after Bike Week and 1 week after spring break started we checked into a rather NICE hotel! The rooms were nice. The kitchen full, the bed very comfortable. I unpacked, put the clothes in the drawers, toiletries in the bathroom, etc. And that's where it ended for us!
After checking in, just hours after the 2nd part of my party checked into their room (with a view). We checked in, looked around, opened up our curtains to reveal..... the dumpsters @ the hotell across the alley. Looked down and their was the the dumpster from our hotel, already wafting the smell of food sweat up to the 2nd floor balcony (our balcony). On the sliding glass door was a note posted NOT to use our balcony between the hours of 7:30 & 4:30 due to "falling debris" from overhead while painting....
I called down and asked for another room and the Clerk told me that tomorrow I could call down in the morning and ask if one is available because tonite there was none.
Soooo, tomorrow comes and we're already unpacked and decide to NOT go out onto the balcony and to live in darkness as to not get the view either. We leave, we come back to notice that there is someone painting the railings ON our balcony. Hmmmm? Did I lock the slider? Oops, maybe not! We go lock the slider, and decide to hang out in the room for a while. Well not for too long. Because not only are they painting at the hotel, but their using a chipping hammer somewhere that is reverbertating through the hotel, down the concrete walls, no matter what side of the building you are on.
We ended up staying out of the hotel for at least 7 hours just because of the noise!
Yes, was the room clean. Yes, the room was nice. But that is where it ended. It's the middle of Spring Break, Bike Week, and the end of "florida season", Close it down for renovations, get it done in one week instead of inconviencing people for days on end.
As for the Dumpsters? Ask for a room on the Odd side of the building, which has a 1/4 mile of ocean view (angled) or pay for the straight on ocean view. don't get a room with an even number room. We had 206, and I could smell the meal from the week before when I opened my sliding glass door!
Good thing to do during the stay? You can actually DRIVE on the beach for a couple of miles. Check it out, it's like $5 for the day....
Beaches Are NICE! Great food around the area! Wings, BBQ, Starbucks!
