I booked my vacation over 2 months in advanced. We wanted to stay where we could open our windows and hear the beach. We reserved a "Deluxe Oceanview Room" online - the pictures on their site make their hotel look great. We got to the hotel and we were very surprised!
First, they wanted us to wear wristbands all weekend (like the ones at a themepark). They said this was their "policy" to prevent non-guests from using their pool. After arguing over that, we got checked in. We walked down this narrow 100 degree uncooled hallway and up an elevator to our 2nd story room. We had to step up into our room, so they aren't easily handicap or stroller accessable.
The room was not very apealing. There were numerious stains on the 70's-retro style yellow carpet and the room looked very worn.
Then I got to see my "Oceanview" and I was shocked. I paid a lot of money a night for my "view" and all I could see from my room was the roof of the building next to us and the pool. Other than that, there were palm trees and neighbors, as there is absolutely no privacy on the balconies. You could literally meet your neighbors. See the attached pictures for my proof. I could NOT see the ocean at all no matter how hard I looked.
I was very upset. I called downstairs and demanded a refund. I ended up calling the Garden Hilton in Ft Lauderdale and we left.
After we left, we realizied just how filthy the room really was - my 1 1/2 year old son was covered in dirt from the floor when he was crawling around after only 10 minutes.
I've never been in a hotel so disgusting and will never visit a Beachcomber hotel again.
