“Renting from Meyer”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2007

We've rented from Meyer a few times now, each time thinking it will be better. The condos just aren't cleaned & kept up as well as those we've rented from individuals or smaller companies, though.

The check-in time of 3pm with a check-out time of 10am robs you of a day while you still pay for it. You may be told you can call a few days before your arrival to see about checking-in earlier "if no one stayed there the prior night." Be aware that when you call a day or two before you arrive to ask about that aforementioned "early check-in", they'll tell you that the policy changed and actually no one is allowed to check-in early anymore. Funny that this is what I was told a few weeks ago, and now a friend of mine made her reservation with them for June and they are telling her the same "you might be able to check-in early" story. Fishy.

Besides, the late check-in was explained to me as allowing for "quality assurance" measures so they could be certain the condo was in top shape. But on each visit we've had problems (in different condos) with the blinds not working or not hung up at all (which was a glaring problem for those of us sleeping on the fold-out couch...and that couch bed had definitely provided better sleep 10 years ago), trash left under couches or on the patio (including cig butts when it's supposed to be a non-smoking facility), tubs that won't drain, mildew-smelling shower curtains, loud maintenance directly in front of the building on weekends and weekdays, etc. It's frustrating when you're paying so much.

There are definitely good points, like location (they own probably 90% of the condos on the beach), water pressure, & appliances, which is a reason we have kept trying. The bottom line is to have fun and enjoy despite the problems, which we did. We always have a wonderful vacation. But I think we'll return to renting from smaller companies and individuals next time. The little things do make a difference in comfort. Have a great vacation regardless of where you stay! Best wishes!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2007

We booked a 3 BR condo through Resort Quest. There were seven people in our unit. Unfortunately neither couch folded out and the 3rd bedroom had two twin beds. One of our family had to sleep on the couch all week.
The kitchen was poorly stocked. There were no baking pans or baking dishes or mixing bowls. We made due after a call to the desk was basically disrearded.
The location was great-the beach was beautiful-the indoor and out door pool were very nice-the workout room was top notch and we really enjoyed the outdoor hot tub!
The resort was gated and our code did not work-neither did anyone elses. We checked in on Xmas eve and there was no staff on site until the day after Xmas.
The good outweighed the bad but it was not what we were expecting after having rented from Resort Quest previously.

  • Liked — The view of the gulf
  • Disliked — The lack of kitchen inventory
  • Tips/Secrets — make sure the unit you've rented in on a rental plan where they must supply needed items
  • Stayed December 2006, traveled with family
