“Nothing spectacular, but adequate”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2008

We stayed here because it is one of four in town that accepts pets. It was the least expensive option. (The rates had gone up for 'season' at the other hotel we used last month). Our room was basically clean and a typical average motel king size bed room with tv, dorm size fridge, microwave, tv, and safe. However, the fridge was quite rusty which was unappealing. Also, the rubber seal was quite loose, which is probably why the freezer section was completely frozen solid! Our room key didn't work in our first room, so we had to wait for the young clerk to come out and try it for himself. He finally decided to give us another room -- after he contacted maintenance. I pointed out that we had a cat and that both of us needed to use the toilet immediately (we had been driving for two hours). A professional would have given us the new room key FIRST and then taken care of the broken door/key.

The safe was inconveniently placed adjacent to the sink, so it was impossible to stand next to the sink. The hairdryer was on the wall at a height of over five feet, so the length of the cord was 'wasted' going up and then back down, combined with the location of the safe, making it all but impossible to dry my hair.

We had trouble with the internet, having to hold our device up to the window to get a signal. My fiance finally discovered that the signal was strongest in the bathroom! So the inconvenient safe became his desk!!

The placement of the bathroom door was also inconvenient. It opened just missing the corner of the fridge/microwave, then just missing the corner of the bed/comforter, and finally was flush against the back wall -- right in front of the light switches for the two parts of the bathroom (sink and toilet areas)!!!

On the first morning, housekeeping knocked at 8:30am and when I told the woman we were in bed, she still wanted to come in! I spoke to the manager, who said we shouldn't be disturbed before 11am. The second day she came at 9:30, but it was Christmas day and we had planned to sleep until noon. (There wasn't one of those Do Not Disturb cards). Finally on the third morning, she waited til almost 10am (!) and when I explained that we like to sleep in while on vacation (and don't require new towels every single day or someone to make the bed) she gave us a Do Not Disturb card to hang on the door. Too bad it wasn't there the first day.

I would recommend asking for a room NOT at the front of the motel. The garbage truck came quite early one day and the noise woke us up. The I-HOP is convenient and the food is fine. My parents eat breakfast there most weekends.

  • Liked — it was quiet when we were there for the most part
  • Disliked — bad placement of essential items like hair dryer and light switches

Well - what can I say - no problems here at all. It's a basic budget motel on the outskirts of Vero Beach, not far from the outlet centre.

I agree with the previous reviewer, the rooms are nicer than you would expect. They are clean and comfortable, have all the necessaries, and free WiFi. We got a good walk in rate with a coupon from the Room Saver booklet.

Would stay here again.

Got it for $43 per night. They have a great selection of tv channels. No complimentary breakfast. Rooms are much better looking than expected if you view the motel on the outside. The room is alittle old and dingy. Bathroom is tiny. A two and a half star rating on a five star scale.

If you are expecting a little beyond a three star rating, try the Hampton Inn or Country Inn & Suites.

Decent place to bunk it for a night on a low budget.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The Front desk was nice and helpful! The rooms were clean and the pool was great. It was close to shopping and was very affordable!
