“Right on the Ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2008

This is the second year in a row that we stayed at the Doubletree Suites Melbourne. We really like this hotel, location right on the beach cannot be beat. The beach is wide and clean, and although we were there over spring break not very crowded. Since the hotel was full the pool area was quite crowded, but not really an issue for us because we are beach people. While the suites are smaller than at most all-suite hotels they are all oceanfront and in very good condition. This was not an issue for us because my kids (2) are still young, may be more difficult as they get older/bigger. The hotel was remodeled a few years ago and the furniture is new. The beds are also extremely comfortable, even the couch bed isn’t bad. Breakfast buffet was good and lunch around the pool was good. Kitchen seems to have trouble with the more dinner which is a shame because the restaurant is nice and very convenient, so we had dinner out most nights. Melbourne is a quite area, not a heavy tourist zone, so even though it was spring break the area was not crowded. Staff at the hotel was great; everyone was very friendly and helpful

Now for the negatives, pool chairs and towels are in short-supply and most are gone by 9 AM. I started taking towels late in the day and keeping in the room until the next morning to ensure we had them when we went to the beach. Also chairs and umbrellas on the beach are available for rent from an outside vendor. I found it more economical to purchase 2 chairs and an umbrella from the Wal-Mart down the street. Service in the restaurant sand pool bar was very slow, which was odd because it wasn’t usually crowded. In general it seems like they might not have enough help.

Overall great hotel for a beach vacation with a great location. It is also clean and reasonably priced. We will defiantly be coming back for a third visit.

My husband and I spent one night here because we couldn't find something closer to Vero Beach. We were going to a Dodger game there. We were so pleasantly surprised. The room was wonderful. We loved the Chocolate Chip cookies and the friendly staff. The food was okay. The room made up for it. Very roomy, comfortable and a great view.

My parents and I stayed at the Doubletree the night before sailing on a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. Unfortunately, they didn't have any rooms that would comfortably fit 3 adults, but we agreed to stay in a King room that included a sofa bed.

My night sleeping on the sofa bed ended up being the best sofa bed experience ever. It was extremely comfortable... I couldn't even feel the bar poking my back. I know it sounds crazy to brag about a sofa bed, but when you're a single adult, that's usually where you end up! It was great!

As for the rest of our stay, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the view was great... even in January!
