I won a 5 night charity auction for the Holiday Inn in Vero Beach and we called to see if we could use it Spring Break (big mistake). Because we have family in Vero and because we usually stay at Disney Vero, we assumed that the newly refurbished Holiday Inn would be up to par with other Holiday Inn's...IT WASN'T.
First, we asked for a second floor hotel room (knowing that the first floors got flooded by the hurricanes)...and we had to wait 24 hours to get it even though we reserved one.
Secondly, the children woke up screaming in the night because bugs were biting them...it turns out that the grill on the AC was loose and the unit was full of bugs...but we couldn't sleep after that because I wasn't sure if it was spiders or mosquitos or sanfleas or what was biting the children.
Thirdly the hotel front desk was very un-apologetic and even tried to tell us that citrus canker bugs were what were swarming us...(there is no such thing as a citrus canker bug)...
Anyhow, for the same amount of $$$, go to Disney Vero for a nice room on the ocean nearby. A lot of the other hotels are still dark, dingy and small...especially for what they are charging.
Stay away from the first floor units...
