the staff is bad but the room we stayed in was great. you can only park one car in the parking lot per room which I thought was terrible, but I had fun while i was there on spring break 2005.

My friends and I decide to take a vacation. We're all excited and saved our pennies for months! Everything appeared to be fine at first. No luggage lost.. nothing... We get to the hotel to FIRST find that our room was set up horrible. The two beds - well if you want to call them beds... We in the worst spots in the room making it almost impossible to move around. We of course go check out the bathroom and find that the shower was completly moldy. I mean we didnt expect it to be perfect.. but it was ridiculous. The toliet wasnt too dirty except that when you went to flush not all the paper even went down. GROSS. Thats strike TWO. So we're like ok whatever... We go to unpack a little to find that theres dirty nasty sheets in the dirty nasty closet. Strike THREE. My one friend goes to put her bag on the floor and when she went to pick it up there was smashed food on the bottom of it. It looked like someone stood there and jammed it into the "rug". Which by the way had stains all over it. Thats oh yeah. Strike FOUR. Its not supposed to go past three right?We decide to hit the beach - so we could feel a little less dirty from just sitting in the room. Then we discover in order to get clean towels we had to go and give back the dirty ones. strike FIVE. After a long day we decide to go to bed and when my friend turned back the "comforter" we notice that there is blood.. oh YES BLOOD on the sheets!!!! I couldnt even believe it!! After about 2 days we decided that we couldnt bare to stay in this nasty hotel anymore. It was all around DISGUSTING... I think we should have camped out in a cardboard box on the streets of New York. We would have saved a ton of money and would have probably recieved better service. Take my advice.. GO ANYWHERE BUT HERE!!

This was the worst place i have ever stayed. The hotel staff was unorganized and lazy, you have to return your own towels everyday in order to get new ones and the they do not clean the room daily. The room was small the two beds were in the kitchen and extremely dirty. The blankets and pillows were stained stored on the floor in the dirty closet. Well to top off our trip on the second day our room was broken into and 3 of the 4 of our wallets were stolen. After paying for the full week the hotel refused to refund our money for the rest of our stay even though we had to leave. They were unsympathetic and did not care, and no one supposedly saw anything...our door to our room had markings from where it was pryed open. come on now...worst hotel ever!!!!!

The Fountainbleu has great ammenities and is the closest condo to the ocean in the state of Florida. Initially when you look at it from the outside it reminds me of an old hotel, but when you see the ammenities and some of the owners have totally remodeled their rooms. 335 is beautiful and totally remodeled it has an adjoining room for larger groups of people. They had Kareoke, a large weight room and a beautiful large indoor heated pool. The staff were very friendly and made you feel welcome.

We really enjoy coming down a couple of times a year and everyone who lives there all the time are always very nice and it is convienent to
the grocery stores., phamacys and everything. I love the patios and the swimming pool and the fitness room is nice too.

Even though this is an older hotel it is still great. My family has stayed at this hotel since I can remember and I'm in my 20s. This is not a party hotel and it is mainly for families. If you want a party go on down the strip! The people who work their are great and the ones who live their are very nice people. The owners have worked very hard to update this hotel as much as possible. So to all of you teenagers, go somewhere else and leave this hotel to the families!!

This place is not a good place to stay at all. First and foremost there is no maid service and you have to go to the office to exchange you own towels. Second there is no outdoor pool and the indoor pool, which is suppose to be heated, has some code on the door that they never tell you. You have to go to the office to ask. The room I stayed in was filthy and we had to wear flipflops in the shower. There is no balcony in the rooms. Some of the rooms are a little better than the one I stayed in, but you pay $100 dollars a night when you could stay in a much nicer hotel for a little more money. The building is old and smells like a nursing home. Basically I definitely would not recommend this place to anyone, unless you don't care about how nice the place you stay is.
