Allure Suites

Reviewed March 10, 2012

We stayed here for 5 nights in March 2012. We selected this location because it was a good value for us and our parents to share a suite, also hoping to eat some meals in. The price was very good and the rooms were clean, but those are about the only positive things I can say.

The entire place was in disrepair. In our room, one of two stove eyes did not work, the dishwasher did not work, several light bulbs were missing, there were only enough utensils for 3 people (for a suite designed for 6), there was no skillet, the handicapped-accessible automatic door was broken, one hair dryer was broken, and one clock radio did not work. We enjoy using exercise facilities, but their single weight machine had broken cables, rendering half the machine non-functional. The seats were broken and non-adjustable for the stationary bikes (2). The treadmill needed waxing, the clock was stopped, the water cooler was empty (all week), there was no TV remote, and the step machine had a broken heart rate monitor. It appeared that they had purchased less-expensive equipment designed for home/family use rather than facility equipment. In the general hotel, one of two elevators was broken, the pool was "temporarily" shut down (all week) and contained leaves and green silt. the whirlpool/spa was out of order and the landscaping around the pool contained dead trees and was overgrown with weekds. The ice machine on our floor made no ice. Even the lobby fountain was dry. The breakfast was pretty pitiful - dry toast, store-bought danishes, and coffee. Be forewarned that housekeeping service is only one day per week - they don't take out your trash and have little in the way of extra linens or towels if you need them.

The desk was manned by one person, and for a few hours a day there were 2 housekeepers around, but no other staff otherwise. I felt that the staff wanted to be helpful, but that the owners didn't give them many resources to respond to guests. You had the sense that the place was about to go out of business at any minute.

If you need a CHEAP place for a large family or group, this may do, but be ready for a third-rate experience.

Stayed here in 2011, found the place to be quite comfortable and a good value so decided to stay here again when we returned to the area this year. Unfortunately the past year doesn't seem to have been kind to the place. We reserved a non-smoking room and our confirmation showed the same, but when we arrived to check in the person at the front desk informed us that the reservation had come through for a smoking room because "the website does that all of the time" and there were no non-smoking rooms available. We reluctantly agreed to stay in the smoking room with a promise to move us by 9:00AM the next morning.

The next morning we went to the complimentary continental breakfast and the prepackaged creamer in one of our coffee's had clearly gone bad at some point because it came out moderately chunky. We stopped at the desk to see when our new room would be available, were informed it wouldn't be until 11:00. We returned to our room to find no hot water for showers and decided we had enough, so we checked out and moved elsewhere.

Wireless Internet had the same problem both years, it was fine in the sitting area near the elevator but as you moved farther away the signal dropped to the point of being non-existent in our room.

I had called a few different places because I definetly wanted a suite at a fair price. They provided nice suite, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 tvs, full size refrigerator, stove, micro, and even dishes and pans for our use. There was plenty of space for all of us. The pool was closed for cleaning. However, we enjoyed good customer service, nice continental breakfast, and a very clean room. It was everything we needed. I would recommend this to everyone traveling in the area and I look forward to staying there again. Thank you MAIN STAY!!

We stayed for 4 nights in this hotel, room was huge!!! We had 5 in our group so it worked out perfectly with the 2 bedroms and 2 bathroms and 3 tv's!!! We did have a little problem with the water pressure and temperature, however that didn't change my opinion. Staff was very helpful and courteous, would stay there again in a heartbeat!!!

Room Tip: There was not a restaurant but they did offer a nice continental breakfast.

We stayed one night. The front desk receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Our room was good sized and clean. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom sink had low pressure where all we could get was a trickle; tub was fine. We were told that night that no one was on premises to fix the sink. So, we had to brush our teeth and wash our hands at the kitchen sink. Used a bowl to fill the sink to shave. Continental breakfast was so-so. Room was overpriced for what we got.

Room Tip: Great location if you are catching the Key West Express; it was about a 15 minute drive.

Arrived at 10pm..parking lot was dark and difficult to see. We had a long day of travelling and wanted nothing more than to get some sleep. We had a two bedroom suite as my mother was arriving the next day. Immediately upon entering the room I wanted to leave. The room was dirty, and dingy with two humidifers in the room. Not a good sign. I was not going to have my Mom stay in this room let alone my husband and I. I was so upset that I tried to get my laptop hooked up to find another hotel. We could not get a connection & was told to use the lobby computer.
The lobby was full of college kids (softball & baseball teams)..I was trying to call several hotels but it was so loud from the kids we couldnt hear ourselves think. Finally, I found a hotel room in another hotel but we would not be able to check in until the next day.
This hotel is a spring break hotel nothing more..
