We rented a suite for four adutls.....March 8th through the 14th for vacation. We thought that it would be an ideal place to enjoy some quallity time together and take in some baseball games.
Initially, when we arrived at 4pm our room was not ready. Which I understand sometimes things do happen.
However, after waiting for a room, it should have at least been clean. It was not. Our room was very dusty and clearly not cleaned thoroughly. I opened the closet door and the door fell off the track and hit me. Then we went to turn the bedroom light on, only to find the bulb was out. This was our first day.at the Sanibel. During the night I awoke to a strob light in the room, the hair dryer decied to flicker on and off.
The second day the light in the kitchen began flickering incessantly, which the maintenance man stated was a bad baliste on the fluorescent light. Did he replace it, no he did not. but did address the closet door, replaced the light bulb and disconnected the hairdryer unit . So when he left we had the pleasure of having a flickering light for the remainder of our stay. in the kitchen area.
The final thing on the fourth night was the plumbing which maintenance did repair.
Now, for a suite at 500.00 a night, I would think that the hotel would have better maintenance and housekeeping so that the rooms would be in better condition than what we experienced.
Overall for the price, I was very disappointed and would not recommend staying at this hotel. Unfortunately,the only positive part of our visit was the awesome beach that we strolled enjoying the views.
