My cousins and I like to stay on the beach after our busy thanksgiving dinner. We walked into our 2nd floor room and were treated to a mildew smell. We walked out on the balcony after we checked in at 3:00 on Friday and were greeted with a rusted door and a rusted railing that drew our attention away as we tried to appreciate the beautiful ocen view.When we checked in we let the person at the desk know that we were 4 not 3. She promised to send up enough towels and sheets and NEVER DID. We out to dinner and got back after 9:00 and the office was closed. We opened up the sofa bed to see if any bedding was there, but all that was there was a very old and thin, lumpy mattress. If we hadn't brought towels we would have had nothing to cover ourselves with. When we went down to breakfast at 8:00 the next morning, we found watered down coffee and an array of sugar cereals and Little Debbie packaged cakes. We talked to the housekeeping person and she brought us some sheets and some very used old blankets for our 2nd night. In the morning we went out on the balcony of our 2nd floor room and were greeted by cigarette smoke from the people downstairs.
The scenery is beautiful and I guess that's why they can charge $179 for an efficiency and have a room that is in terrible shape and does not restrict smoking or offer a decent breakfast.
We love the location but this room is beyond "old Florida charm" as their ad says. I don't know if the other rooms are any better, but we were very disappointed.
