“Oceanside Haven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I'm lying in a comfortable bed at the DoubleTree, listening to the ocean. Just had a lovely swim in the heated pool, followed by a brief soak in the hot tub. Can't wait to watch the sunrise from my balcony tomorrow morning and then walk on the beach. Check-in was a breeze, staff friendly, and I appreciated the warm cookie. Room is immaculate.

We stayed in Room 205 as an overnight celebration for our 27th anniversary. The room was a 2 room suite with a balcony overlooking the ocean. It could not have been more enjoyable! Check in and out was quick with no problems. The pool area was clean , spacious and right at the edge of the beach. There was a short boardwalk to the beach with a shower for your return.
If you stay here, try to get the highest floor you can. Our reservation was originally for the ground floor but is was happy we were able to move up at check in because we would not ave been able to see the ocean through the foliage.
If there is a downside I would have to say the bathroom could use some updating. Everything was functional but showed signs of wear.
I would definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

Room Tip: Get the highest floor you can for the view!

I am impressed by everything about this hotel. The service was fast, kind and generous -- offering more than what we asked for -- both at reception and in the dining room. The pool is nice. The laundry room was clean.

I am a diamond Hilton honors member and spent a week with my family at this location. The house keeping staff is excellent - rooms are clean and they did a great job of working around our schedule - as we were in and out of the room frequently. The staff was friendly and the facility is well maintained - only complaint would be about food service at pool - the food was a little lacking (underdone shrimp and nachos that were a mess) but room service meal on another occasion was pleasant - overall this location is recommended just don't expect haute cuisine at the restaurant

Had a nice week with our entire family. We had booked another hotel via Hotwire and were thankful they didn't have hot water and were able to get out of our pre paid reservation and were able to stay here on the ocean instead. The hotels lobby and pool areas are nice. The rooms are nothing special and the bathroom a little small and outdated. We had mold in the tile shower and toothpaste splatters on the mirror and running down the front of the sink cabinet. I thought they could have done a bit better on cleaning. The walls are paper thin, glad the room next to us stayed only one night. I could hear word for word what they were saying. (yikes)There was a large gap on our door which went outside, it was very cold for our daughter and son in law who slept on the pull out couch This is a pet friendly hotel. There were tons of them. I have a daughter who is very allergic to dogs and it may have caused a bit of breathing problems. Not sure if they have room that they use only for animals or if they let them in all rooms. Over all we had a great time. The heated pool and hot tub was nice also. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The views were awesome as well. Oh yea don't forget to get your warm chocolate chip cookie.

We put the kids to bed on the sleeper sofa in the living area, closed the pocket door, and we were able to stay up and watch tv, sit on the balcony, snack, etc. Loved being oceanfront with a great view! Even though it was winter the kids swam in the heated pool and sat in the hot tub. We brought food and since they have a fridge and microwave we were able to eat in the room so we weren't eating out for every meal. Every staff member we encountered was very friendly. One day our shower drained so slowly that I had to drain it with a trash can before I could use it. But we didn't report that b/c we didn't want repairmen in the room. The bathroom is very small and there is no tub but this was fine for us. We thought this was a great place for our family.

We spent two weeks at the Doubletree while looking for a winter home in the Melbourne Beach area. We had been to the area recently and liked the area where the Doubletree is located. My wife has special accessibility needs which was one of the reasons we chose the hotel on this trip. (We had stayed at a nearby small motel which we loved but accessibility was an issue for us at that otherwise wonderful place.)
Two things impressed us immediately and throughout our stay at the Doubletree. Those were the location and the incredible courtesy of everyone on staff here. The staff ranged from very helpful to incredibly helpful without a single exception. We felt welcome and at home throughout our stay.
The location is almost beyond description. The beach is wide, clean, sandy and uncrowded. Our bedroom had a balcony overlooking the Atlantic with a full view from south to north. Our living room window had a panoramic view of the Indian River and Melbourne in the near distance. Our days began with sunrise over the Atlantic and ended with sunsets over the Indian River.
We enjoyed the meals at the hotel restaurant and occasional room service. It was very good for hotel food and good enough that we ended up eating-in more than we had expected. Prices were very reasonable for all offerings. I'd highly recommend that anyone staying here try the food before venturing out.
The hotel appears about 20 years old but is in very good condition. Furnishings were all in good shape and the entire facility was spotlessly clean. The suites are compact but not cramped. They've done a good job of putting a lot of comfort in a moderately sized two room unit. The room had two 37 inch lcd televisions with standard "Lodgenet" cable programming. It doesn't have a great selection of channels but with the beauty of the room views and location right on the beach, television was a minor consideration. As others have noted, the bathroom is pretty basic but it's more than adequate.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys up close ocean views, nature and a friendly small town environment. It's beautiful and peaceful. For anyone looking for more urban activities or over the top luxury, it's probably not the place for them.

Room Tip: Any rooms on the second floor or above have a view of the ocean. The higher the floor, the greater...
