“Convenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

The hotel is located right in the middle, between the two piers, all rooms have balcony and ocean view. It is very convenient to everything. I agree that the room service could have been better, but I actually disinfected everything the first day and I was happy not to have anybody to give a doubtful clean. I was a little disappointed by the very old microwave, hard to open doors, water dripping from the balcony above and pretty loud AC. Also, not even a cup of coffee in the morning and we were not allowed a 2 hours late checkout. But the ocean and the attractions made it a very nice vacation. Walk right on the beach, free 10lbs bag of ice every day, free parking right on the spot, easy access to everything, beautiful pool and landscaping.

The maid service at this hotel is pretty much non existent . They come in and make up your beds and take out the trash, that's about it. We had to call the front desk on two occasions to get wash clothes. They don't clean the floors or the bathrooms. I never walked barefoot while in my room. I always made sure I had flip flops on. The balcony always had a bad smell when you are out there and when it rained it flooded our balcony, so we couldn't even sit outside while it was raining. After the rain stopped the cracks in the top of the balcony dripped for a long time. I would suggest hair nets for the staff that comes into the guest rooms. Somebody has a bad, bad shedding problem. There was black hair all over the bed, the shower, the floor, you name it black hair was on it and I found that to be gross. This hotel does not have an elevator. That is a major pain. We had no problems with the staff. Everyone was nice and courteous. After I had read all the bad stuff about Betty (The general manager) I was quite worried. But, she was nice and helpful. The pool was cleaned daily so that is a plus. The only problems we had was the cleaning rooms issue. It could've been cleaner. I'm not a picky person nor am I a clean freak but this place was a little on the dirty side. Also It would've been nice to have an elevator. This is an older hotel in need of some repairs and upgrades. Given the chance I probably wouldn't stay here again... Oh yea and the parking lot is small! Good luck with that!

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony facing the gulf.

The room was very clean. We were impressed with the maintenance crew who were up early in the morning cleaning the grounds & the pool. Our room was cleaned daily and given fresh clean towels. A nice quiet place directly on the beach. Its not a luxury hotel but a good old fashion "Mom & Pops" hotel.

The view from the room was excellent. The room was fine. Water pressure in the shower was low. The room was clean though. Met the owner and she was nice.

We just returned from Casa Loma, totaly enjoyed our stay, Janet was lovely in the office as were all the other staff members. Yes the floor was a little sandy but WE brought the sand in ( I read the reviews and brought my own broom..lol). The housekeeping staff was very friendly and always gave me extra coffee each morning, loved getting a bag of ice free each day. I even enjoyed no elevator...helped to make up for some of the extra goodies we were eating..lol.Casa Loma is not a 5 star motel but its good for the price and you cant beat the view, the pool was great and the clean. Lots of famlies there good place to be....Thanks Casa Loma for an enjoyable time.

We stayed at the casa loma in late June for a week. When we got there we walked into a very clean room with a beautiful view. We stayed in the double queen with a kitchen. As the days went on we noticed quite a few problems with the room. The air conditioner was in working order but was physically falling apart, when we called the front desk to let them know so we would not be charged for the damage they replied "okay" in a very monotone unpleasant manner. The tile floors are a great idea but are not swept during your stay so there is sand everywhere and get very slippery. The beds are made daily but the sheets are not changed AT ALL. Nothing is wiped down or even cleaned at all either. They basically make your bed and give you towels. That is the extent of it. The room is nicely decorated but VERY poor lighting, two out of three of our lamps did not work and the light over the vanity didn't either. So we only could rely on one lamp and the light in the kitchen area. The water pressure in the shower is very low, but great hot water (standing shower only). And the toilet takes a very long time to flush and sometimes doesn't at all. The kitchen has a full size fridge which is great but very little silverware we got NO forks, 2 cups, one coffee cup etc. There is a decent size tv but the cable constantly glitches and goes out. Every room has a balcony with a beautiful view of the pool and the beach. Our door to the balcony was broken and would not close unless it was dead bolted. But beware of rain you will be drenched on your balcony from the leaking roof. Really the only dry outdoor place in the whole hotel is a stairwell, there are NO ELEVATORS. Everywhere else you will be drenched by the rain. Water also leaks into your room from the balcony door as well as the front door. The grounds are kept very beautifully and there is a great entrance to the beach by the pool and they are very strict of the 10 am to 10 pm pool rule. The pool is clean with tons of lounge chairs around it. The parking lot gets full very fast as well. As for the "wifi" you are getting, forget about it. Unless you are sitting in front of the front office you can't pick it up. The hotel isn't in a prime location by any means. You can walk to very little from here. All in all if you are staying for a night or two it would be great, but so not worth the money for anything longer.

We stayed at the Casa Loma June 17, 2012 for 4nights. I booked it through Bookit.Com. Let me just say I will never stay there again! The staff was not friendly at all, they only gave us 2 washclothes for 5 people an when i asked for more they couldnt understand english, very dusty rooms, small bathroom no tub, the shower would change temp while bathing from boiling to cold, pillows stained with pee stains on pillows an pillow case. Need i say more?
