Previous reviewers seem to have either LOVED this place or HATED their experience here. I stayed here for four days to attend my father's funeral service in Vero Beach. I did very much appreciate receiving a bereavement rate from Sea Turtle and my experience here was fine.
The location is convenient to the beach and several very nice waterfront restaurants. The rooms varied in quality depending upon which one you had. My room (#9) had refrigerator, microwave, flat screen TV, and a work desk. The free high speed internet was a big plus.
On the negative side, the bathroom was very much sub-par with a shower that would either freeze you or scald you from minute to minute depending upon who else was using water in the building. The overall look and feel of the bathroom was just plain kind of grungy. This was not a big deal for me but I suspect that some people wouldn't care for it.
There were small ants crawling around the various counter surfaces throughout the room. They didn't seem to take much of my food so I didn't care that much...still, just saying.
So, overall I would say that as long as your expectations are set appropriately for a tropical place with the pros and cons often associated with tropical locales, you will enjoy your stay here.
