“5 Star or Low Price? You can't have it both ways.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

When my GF booked the room, I read the reviews here and became a little concerned. After staying there, I was pleased to find that the negative reviews tended to be nothing more than sour grapes. Where are you going to find spacious accommodations a half a block from the beach for $125 (or less) a night? For those that expect 5 Star, expect to pay for it. The rest of us will content ourselves with an excellent value.

Was the place perfect? No. But it's far from being the dump some have suggested. For the money, you get two good sized bedrooms, a roomy living room, a small kitchen and dining area. What you would expect in a typical apartment. Yes, it could stand new carpet (which the management said they were in the process of replacing in many of the units). Standard home-style A/C - not those noisy wall units in most places. Nice courtyard with pool, barbecue grills and tons of landscaping.

So you sourpusses stay away. That will make it easier for the rest of us to get reservations.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a courtyard rather than one in the front of the building.

Stayed 2 days before going on a cruise. Very spacious, 2 separate bedrooms and a kitchen. Very nice garden courtyard, and the beach is right at the back door. Waffle House , Winn Dixie, CVS , Wallgreen & Ron Jons are minutes away. Read some negative reviews, but we had a OK experience at Wakulla Suites.

My family and I have stayed at Wakulla Suites a few times throughout the years. Our most recent visit was this past December 2012. Carl had checked us in and was very considerate and helpful. The rooms are very spacious, and clean. It is wonderful to have 2 separate bedrooms, and your own kitchen. We had a grill right outside the front door that was perfect! I thought our housekeeper was fantastic! She would come by and ask if there was anything we needed, if we wanted service, etc. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. They even have some trees with fruit and they will have someone get them for you. Even if you are not in their beach units it is not a far walk to get to the beach. This is a great place to stay and we plan on going back this April.

Hotel staff was very rude, rooms not cleaned and old furniture/appliances. We had to vacate our room for a day for repairs to leaky sinks and toilet. Have stayed there in years past and each time, we were more disappointed, especially with the management's response to queries and requests for assistance.

Do not stay here! It is awful, over priced and the staff and manager's are misleading and deceptive.They spent all the money on reception to fool you. I hahaven't seen a bathroom that dirty and unsuitable for use ever. You get cleaner rooms in Asia, India and Africa. This place is awfully grim and we stayed one night after a ten hour drive with a fifteen month old. The floors, walls, bedding were all dirty. Dead cockroaches were everywhere . This place is a con. Not nice at all . Do not go. Also, if you are on the ground floor you can hear all the people moving above you. It sucks big time and is a public health risk. My son was covered in black from the dirty floors.

Room Tip: Don't stay here ever even if you are desperate

We have stayed here twice in the last two years. Price is excellent for the spacious suites. We feel like we have our own apartment while on vacation. Lots of room, two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining area with a decent size bathroom. Perfect location as it is a short 2/3 minute walk to beach. First time we stayed at Wakulla Suites we were in the beach units; this time we stayed in the pool/garden area. Both were wonderful - all suites have same lay-out, just a little further to walk to beach when staying in the pool and garden suites. Pool was heated and very clean; did miss having a hot tub, but having beach close made up for hot tub. Tropical gardens are beautiful; while we were visiting there were ripe star fruit on the tree which we had never seen before. Only problem we found - if you put anything on shelves in closet make sure to wipe dust off shelves. Closets are huge which was another plus. Close enough to beach to see sunrise every morning. We absolutely love this place and will definitely stay here again if we go back to Cocoa Beach. Gigi, Missouri

I have been coming back to this phantastic hotel for more than 7 years. I usually take student groups and friends there and they are always overwhelmed when they see the size and quality of the rooms, the hotel, the heated pool and the location. The staff is extremely helpful and nice. The grills do not work all the time but somebody is always available to help you and to show you the grills that are working. The tropical garden is wonderful, the rates are unbelievable for what you are offered. I can really recommend this place to everybody. Richard, Austria

Room Tip: A perfect place is near the pool area close to the grills.
