This is an old hotel, and it is on a main street in Vero Beach. The location gives great access to places to eat, going to the beach (about a 10 minute ride) and plenty of places to eat. CVS and Walgreens are handy too incase you forgot something
The hotel was very clean, and sufficient for an overnight stay. The pool was extremely nice, and even had a power to chair to aid a handicapped person.
The staff was very nice. The breakfast was a bit sparse, but enough to get you going. The coffee was excellent, and they offered 2 types of teabags.

Room Tip: Every room has a small sitting area outside. They supply 2 chairs for each room, so if you are loca...

It's not everyday I have to write a review that is poor but today unfortunately is one of them. We stayed overnight at this hojo & it will probably be my last at this chain.
Our motel room was on the ground floor, it was damp & smelt terrible. The air con was badly in need of a service (at the very least) the damp smelly air never left our room. The carpet was filthy, & left or feet dirty walking on it. The fridge didnt cool down the whole night so was no good for us. The pool didnt look clean with a green tinge to it, so we didnt risk that. There is a lot of noise from the adjacent road, particularly the loud stereos of the cars waiting at the traffic lights.
There was a 6" lizard in our room on arrival, we tried to catch it, but failed. Decided to leave it after all it wouldl eat any insects that could be in there . . We didnt find it in the morning!
To find positives, as I firmly believe it should be balanced, the shower worked ok, with hot water (needed that to feel clean) & the staff were friendly. They recommended the fast food adjacent which gave us a 10% discount but I wouldn't go there again either, expensive & poor food.
We found the whole experience depressing, & if we hadn't arrived so late & tired we would have found somewhere else to stay. We couldn't wait to leave, in fact woke up earlier than planned & did just that.
We would not recommend this motel, & most definitely would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Avoid. I cannot recommend anything helpful.

We went to a reunion and wanted a smoking room. Great hotel experience from check in til check out. Enjoyed the patio facing the pool. Also, it was nice that the Walgreens next door had a liquor store.
