I usually write my reviews right after returning from my travels. But this time was different because I had such mixed feelings. My husband and I stayed at the DeSoto for a week in December in Unit E. The overall experience was very good. Loved the location - away from the honky tonk of the Broadwalk, but close enough to bike to. Loved having bikes and used them every day to explore the area. Our unit was the perfect size and configuration with a king bed and small kitchen, and beautiful terrazzo floors. Everything was very clean and functional. The big problem was no fault of the DeSoto. it came from a noisy neighbor directly behind our unit only a few feet from our windows. He played his guitar and sang (badly) ALL DAY. Once in the middle of the night, we were awakened by last smashing and crashing sounds. Then a lot of yelling, and finally the police. The next day we spoke to Steve, the manager, about it. He was very apologetic, and said he would speak to the owner about it. Later he reported that it was over, and it should now all be fine. Well, within a day the singing, guitar playing and loud music was back. It didn't ruin our vacation, but it did tarnish what could have been a top ten. So disappointing, as we would definitely go back otherwise.
