After reading the negative posts I had to ask myself where did these people stay??? I have a great experience with the 3 nights I stayed. I arrived at 10:00am (check-in is at 3:00pm) and asked for an early check-in. They explained that a room will be available in an hour because someone just checked out. I asked if I could place my bag in the room and change. I was not concerned that the room wasn't ready yet, I just wanted to get to the beach. The desk staff granted my request quickly and gave me my key. I went to the room and found the attendant already there cleaning the room. She gladly stepped out as I changed and assured me the room will be ready in a 1/2 hour. I went down to the pool area to give her time and met very friendly staff at the Tiki bar. When I returned I found the room spotless. The bathroom had plenty of towels and toilet paper. The fridge was clean although the microwave may have been missed. The bed was clean and comfortable. While I was unpacking there was a knock at the door and it was a woman and man on the staff asking if they can inspect the balcony. They were there with cleaning supplied and I explained that the balcony was perfectly clean. They appeared they wanted to be sure and gave it a quick look. After they left I looked out over the balcony (street side) and did notice some pigions and pigion droppings on the roof below. So I am guessing that can cause a problem a times but in my case it appeared they were on top of it. The common areas were somewhat old and could use a facelift but I was there for the sun not the decor. I was told the hotel restaurant was closed for renivations but I enjoyed the food and drink outside at the tiki bar as I was traveling alone and had a few area restaurants in mind that I wanted to return to. I found strange that you had to rent their chairs and not bring your own but did not affect me as I stayed pretty much poolside which was crystal clear during my stay. I wasn't exposed to the no beer/coolers policy at the pool and would understand a guest not being happy about that. The location right on the beach is fantasic compared to most on the strip are across the street. The pay parking thing would have annoyed me a bit but didn't apply to me cause I cabbed it this trip.
I got a great rate and the entire staff that I have encountered was nothing less than great. I understand that Ocean Manor is part hotel and part private condo's which may explain the inconsistancies from one room to another. I will be asking for my same room when I return so I will not divuldge the room number. As a suggestion maybe your better off dealing with the hotel staff instead of a private owner as I did which resulted in a great experience.
