I recently stayed with my 2 teenage sons at the La Fiesta in a standard 2nd floor room with a view of the pool. I can only speak of the room quality and cleanliness of the Inn part of the property as opposed to the oceanview suites, which I did not see from the inside. Our room was small, and tired in need of a major renovation from paint to carpet to bedding to furniture to decor.
The beige blankets were worn, (I brought my own luckily) the window air conditioner was LOUD and smelled in need of a major cleaning. A glance at the coils and inside of the machine confirmed it. The bathroom is OK, recently remodeled apparently, but the door had black finger prints and just looked like it had not been cleaned thoroughly in quite some time.
Everything I touched had that sticky, rather grimy feel to it.... got the antibacterial wipes out.
I hate to be so hard on the place, as the employees were so friendly and helpful, but the room nearly spoiled my stay. . i did try to move for the 2nd night but the Hampton and Holiday Inn were both sold out. On the plus side, the pool was great, very clear water., and I saw the pool man each morning checking the chemicals.( I live in Florida and have a pool, I know what clean pool water looks like) The short walk down to the beach salvaged my experience there! We just stayed out of the room!
In summary, there are good and bad things about the place, but being a clean freak, I could just not get beyond the room, and would not be able to recommend it . Hope they remodel soon, they have a diamond in the rough, and a super location!
