Nice affordable room
Nice hotel and room would stay at again. The bamboo bar in the back is ok but you never know the price of drinks. The room is facing the front of the hotel right above the valey parking so if you open the window you can here people coming in complaining about getting hit with a $10 a day parking fee. You can pay $7 a day to park in the back. I wouldn’t have valet park my vehicle again here. I had them park it once and they left it unlocked. Other then that I would recommend it.
We spent a long week in this unit. The positives were the good location, on the beach, good tiki bar, great coffee bar in the lobby, free,( but slow) wifi, and wonderful new Italian restaurant on the first floor.
On the other hand there were some issues. It's not stated that you have to pay $8/day for parking. The pictures and video do not give you the impression that you're not looking out over the ocean. The unit is on the second floor overlooking the back parking lot, the portico over the entrance and the dumpsters. Ikea/frat house decor.
The unit is sparsely furnished, with few dishes and cups, and no starter soap for the bath. Bought a bottle of wine, but no corkscrew. Coffee maker was very small, dirty, and had no filters. The futon was not what was displayed in the picture and there was no rug in the living area as shown in the pictures.
The bedroom had a Murphy bed, that was tolerable for the first 3 nights, but then our older bones rebelled. The only light in the bedroom was a harsh halogen light in the ceiling that was not dimmable. Same for the lights in the kitchen and living area.
After a few days we emailed Raul, and to his credit he called us right away. Not to his credit was his defensiveness about the unit. He apparently has had an issue with theft of both large and small items, and maybe he needs to charge a damage deposit. He wanted to know why we were upset, since people come there to party.
Sooo. Just be aware of what your're renting so there are no misunderstandings. A young couple might enjoy the unit and it's sparseness, but for those of us getting Social Security, not so much. We've rented units through VRBO all over the US and Canada, and it's rare that we were as disappointed.
I am truly sorry your were disappointed . I really don't understand how you even got the impression of overlooking the Ocean with a balcony. I am very honest with everyone and if you look at my video I even say the I am on the 2nd floor front of the building what the hotel considers city view side. I try to accommodate my guests with a comfortable experience on a budget. The apartment does have everything you need pots, pans, dishes, linens, beach chair etc. From my conversation with you, you expected upscale on a budget price but that is not what I offer. It is also the first time someone just books my place with out emailing any questions or at least an introduction. I don't think you really looked at my listing as the parking information is also there. It is unfortunate that you had another expectation. Many families have come and been able to enjoy a week on the beach at a price they can afford and have full access to a kitchen and a home and not a hotel room. Thanks for the heads up on the corkscrew it should have been in the drawer.
The property is older but very well-kept and in a great location. The owner was easy to deal with and took us in on the spur of the moment. The beaches are clean and there is a great little shopping area with several nice ocean side restaurants in walking distance that my wife and I enjoyed almost daily. Thanks again
Glad you had a great time!
I cannot say enough great things about our experience
My husband and I stayed at this condo for 11 nights. We LOVED it! So much so we may buy in the building. The condo was super clean, convenient, had all amenities we needed. It was a pleasure to watch the Patriots play their games with the convenience of the kitchen and the nice tv sets! : ). It was so easy to get to the beach, one floor down. The staff is very friendly. Building has great amenities. The owner of this condo is extremely nice and professional. My husband said the bed was so comfortable that he wants me to ask about the mattress brand! It was nice to lie in bed and look out the window at the palm trees. Plenty of closet space too and the owner has nicely provided beach chairs and an umbrella which the hotel rents out for a fee. Cannot wait to return. Have already picked out next year's dates!
Needs a facelift
This place is pretty tired, in need of a spruce up or at the very least a thorough cleaning and fixing. The furniture is cheap and uncomfortable, especially the bed. The air conditioning does not work well and is extremely noisy. The condo is lacking in supplies, but I appreciate it is probably hard to keep things maintained in a vacation rental. The best part of the resort is the beach, it is great! Luckily there is a grocery store and bus service close by as this resort is somewhat out of the way with not many restaurants close by. The restaurant/shopping strip at Lauderdale-by-the Sea is great on Friday nights and is about a 20-25 minute walk.
Sorry you felt this way. The apartment is very clean. The things you mentioned such as a cutting board, and a butcher knife missing all got replaced. Thank you!
Excellent stay and vacations.
It is a private apartment (not hotel's staff involved) in the Ocean Manor Hotel (which has poor reviews). Surprinsingly, it is much better that I thought based on the hotel's reviews.
Specifically the apartment has everything as described in the details section and pictures. Includes all the stuff that you need for an excellent vacations and everything is working correctly. You can see it in a video (ask the owner).
Most importantly, the owner is extremelly professional and you can trust without any reservation or concerns. To give an example, he received my check by mail very late due my mistake labeling the envelope. As soon as he received it, he contacted me and emailed me the check scanned (voided and broken for him), and he instructed me how to write envelopes in the US. This fact is not so common to see.
Others: the location is unique. Cheap parking ($7/day).
In conclusion: I highly recommend this unit if you are not looking for a luxury. I feel that I received exactly what I paid for.
Thank You! Hope you can come back again!
