Possitive things first- location, location, location. The hotel is located right on the beach and far enough away from the busy part of Vero Beach to enjoy your visit without a lot of noise. The pool is very nice as well. Housekeeping did a good job keeping our room clean. There's a Publix grocery close by as well as a CVS for those things you may have forgotten. The staff was very friendly and check in and check out was quick. Ok now for the not so good- it is very difficult to find a hotel just based on internet pictures and a few comments without choosing something you are disappointed with. This was my experience anyway. I had read the reviews that this was an older hotel and I was ok with that. However, the room had a smell as soon as you walked in. I'm not sure if it was the smell of mold (I didn't see any) or if it was the smell from the old furnature. It wasn't pleasant whatever it was. The shower heads hardly allowed water to come out. A simple fix that would go a long way for someone staying there. We had to put a towel in the bottom of the refigerator due to the freezer that was frozen over leaking. We just put stuff in a baggy so it didn't get wet. We rented two ajoining rooms for our families needs. My biggest concern was that the lock on the rooms did not seem secure at all. When the wind blew the door would rattle because the lock was not tight. The chain lock did not make me feel any better. This again seems like an easy fix to change out locks including a dead bolt and something more secure than a chain lock. The security lights located in the parking lots much just be for looks because NONE of them worked. We tried to park in the first 4 parking spots closest to the hotel to get some of the light from the lights outside the rooms. I really wanted to love this place. My family has waited almost 10 years to come to Florida for a vacation. I reseached for months for reasonable prices on hotels. I don't think that this hotel met my expectations :(
