We have stayed at this motel many times. This time we took our 2 granddaughters, ages 10 and 7. Our room was extremely dilapidated and needing upgrades. Furniture and bedding very old and musty; towels were of poor quality.

Receptionist at front desk was unfriendly and going through the motions- almost rude. In fact when i asked for a map of the area, on our second day, I felt as though I was intruding. He handed it to me- no comment, no may I help you, etc.

Breakfast was sparse- packaged waffles, muffins, boxed cereal.

Although the Turtle Club is lovely and food is good, service was not up to par on the night we dined there. Same children's menu across the street on the bay side was $5.00 less per child.

Would we return to Vanderbilt Resort, I don't think so.

Room Tip: Unless rooms are updated, I can't suggest a room.

We LOVE this place. We have been coming here every year for 10 years. It's so laid back, and non-pretentious. It's a little slice of heaven. The only way it's lacking is the lack of a spa and/or exercise room.

I have never, ever stayed at a Resort where I have been treated as good as George and the staff here at Vanderbilt treated us. Great Service. GREAT room ( what a view ) Clean and nicely appointed. GREAT value, and let us not forget the " Food and " Drink" Barry, and Jane were so incredible as well as out servers. As a Chef I am pretty picky about the food at Resort's, not here, the food was 5 star and the cocktails were delicious. The sunsets and the company at the ' Vanderbilt made this Vacation a memorable one. George is really awesome and I am returning next year. If you need anything just ask George, he will amaze you too.

Rooms were adequate, staff was excellent and location was great. Walking distance to a little deli was convenient. Pool was too small and lacking comfortable chaise lounges. A good place to know about but I would never go at spring beak again...way too crowded.

Room Tip: Ocean view better than gulf view....

Have stayed here twice. Love the location and restaurant --hate the rooms. First stay had a less than average room. Second stay had a terrible room with molded caulking in bathroom, shower nozzle and bathroom fixtures rusted, floor moldings loose from wall, everything shabby (not shabby chic!!-haha). Was told "resort" was fully booked with no other rooms available. Will not stay here again.

Room Tip: NEVER accept a first floor room
