Family of 4 plus a well mannered pitbull booked an affordable room as a walk-in. Happy to meet the new owners, as of 2 weeks prior, both working hard, friendly and up front about the "condition" of the hotel. Didn't mind the outdated room as it was very spacious compared to new construction hotels. Stayed on the back side, where a manatee could be viewed grazing on the mangroves, 10 ft away, and heard talk of a 6ft gator frequenting the canal. Excellent pool, classy room upgrades are in progress (we got a peek). The owners and staff were all very professional and friendly(first name basis). They have a general kindness and personal touch that seems to be lacking in so many corporate facilities. Three new heavy duty laundry machines and dryers are available for use. The road noise isn't so bad, especially IF the newly rediscovered, vintage, roadside fountain ponds get operational. The sunset and "big sky" views from the third floor veranda are exceptional. A great spot to hang out with a glass of wine at the end of a hard vacation day. The Dean family absolutely recommends The Veranda to anyone, and cant wait to see the improvements on a return trip in August.
