If you hate your life this is the hotel for you!! We stayed here in June of 2012 had to be the worst time of my life. When you arrive at the hotel they send you 4 blocks away to park in public parking. Don't for get to return to feed the meter every 8 hours. Once we got the hotel the first thing you will notice is that the staff does not speak English. The staff seems put out by the hotel clients one bartender made us wait 10 minutes why he finished his lunch. the pool attendent for towels is always to busy texting to get you towels. Then we decide to eat, again no one in restaurant speaks English and the food was at best eatable. this is a very dirty hotel. We canceled our room and moved on lost 200 bucks for staying.
Again, if you hate your life stay here!!
Dirty, no one speaks English
def the best way is the car. If you can rent one you will be great there. Key West you can walk around, and plenty of nice B&B there like my favorites
take you pick they are all good but Ambrosia, Tropical,and Banyan are wonderful
enjoy your trip
wonderful laidback conch style, many choices see my favorites above and more info on the site
There are several Websites out there offering houses for rent but I thought I'd post the link to VRBO since that's the one my in-laws used to rent a place in Port Charlotte and it worked out well. There are several reasons that might make you want to consider renting a house instead of staying at a hotel: for an extended stay, it often turns out to be the cheapest option. Also, there are much more options available for people traveling with pets, and families might enjoy having the extra room to let children run around. Personally, what I enjoyed the most was to have the option to stop by the grocery store and cook dinner on the barbecue by the pool every night - it sort of reminded me of my camping trips, and it made for a very relaxing and very comfortable holiday.
Rental homes usually come fully equipped, and some have extra little perks: for example, ours had a swimming pool, a small dock in the backyard and a couple of bicycles, just to name a few.
You get what you pay for and this was CHEAP. Cheap and dirty. Views were great. There were a few bugs but that's to be expected in Florida. There was an exception to that rule when the cockroaches came out when the sun went down. I packed my bags and headed home hoping they did not invade my luggage. I did manage to take tons of photos during the day, before I left.
Unique? Cockroaches are not unique but you don't expect them in a hotel.
My daughter and I visited this hotel right before it was closed for rennovations. We wanted to get away from the daily commutes and workday stress. Frankly, we wanted a place to reconnect.
She found the place on the internet while we were looking for places to stay. Since I taught Florida History, I was excited about the adventure. She was a bit skeptical since some of the reviews were a bit negative. With some hesitation, we made reservations to stay at the hotel in the Autumn. I am so glad we did!
While the lobby doesn't reflect the history of the hotel, it was pleasantly decorated for the season and ghost tours were in full swing. The room was pleasant and clean and the grounds were beautifully kept. The hallways and shops were an adventure to explore. We also had the pleasure of experiencing a wedding was taking place and enjoyed the excitement of the wedding party as they went on scavenger hunts around the hotel.
While some of the reviews don't reflect our opinions,we have looked forward to the reopening of the hotel. We would like to go back and take our entire family. We are both confident that they would all share our excitement about this landmark.
The grounds are a sight to behold and the food was very good.
We booked a night at this motel for Memorial Day weekend and found it to be nicer than we expected from other reviews. It was in a great location, right next to the Fountain of Youth, and very close to the Historic Old Town in St. Augustine. For the price, the room was nice. It had new carpet, new paint, new tiles in the bathroom and everything was clean. The staff even called about 15 minutes after we checked in to see if everything was ok. The internet worked, and there was breakfast in the morning.
Location! For the price, I doubt you would find a better one.
Marriott Harbor Beach is the best resort there is in FT Lauderdale, the staff are great and make you fill right at home, the beach has to be the cleanest around, one of the beach guys Casey go's out of his way to make your stay as relaxing and worry free as it can be, They never get any better then him, you can tell the care he has for the beach and its guest, So if you want an awsome R&R time head to the beach,
The beach was the cleanest in the area, the staff was freidly and welcoming, pool was great and surf club where you can drop off the kids
Recently visted the Epcot center with family and stayed at the Choice hotles' property
Comfort Inn. I was a bit leary about the standard but when I checked in, the experience was
pretty good. I aslo found out that I could take the hotel's free shuttle to Disney and get picked up as well. That saved us the hassle of parking the car and paying for it, plus money if we were to take a cab . If you are travelling with family, it might be a good idea to check with the nearby hotels and see if they provide free shuttle service to points of interest. Party On!!
Free shuttle service helped us quite a bit.
When I rate a motel or a bed and breakfast I start with a 3 "Satisfied" then the place and the people add or subtract from there. Good ways to raise the rating of your place is to be in a convenient location to things I want to do, or to have nice, helpful, friendly people working there, or pay attention to the little things, the details. Ambrosia accompishes all three. It is conveniently located to the harbor, the old town and most museums. When I arrived, I was met by a very nice young woman named Lexi. The room had some nice extras like herbal teas and coffees and even an umbrella should it rain. By the pool there are towels, sunscreen and hand lotion for you to use. Lexi even told me I could take a couple of towels with me on my trip to the Dry Tortugas. There is fresh tea available on the patio by the pool along with lots of bottled water. The staff treats you like family and understandably they get a lot of repeat business. I highly recommend staying here during your trip to Key West.
Note that this is not inexpensive; but nothing is in Key West.
Excellent suite includes kitchen, 2 baths, awesome views and 4 pools as well as lake access. Wish we had spent more time there!
There is a lake on the grounds just beyond the pool area. From out 25th floor balcony we could see Kissimee and Orlando as well as the fireworks from Disneyworld.
This motel has a very nice pool, comfortable rooms and a great view of the ocean. Food here is great too. I came here with a large group from my high school to celebrate (?) turning 50. If you are looking for a great luxurious room, give it a try.
Great pool, great food, nice staff.
I had a long stay at the Country Inn in Ocala during my business visit. My experience was outstanding. Everything from the breakfast, high speed internet, beds, rooms, staff was excellent. The location was very convenient and had many close by restaurants and business places.
I would highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.
I could frequently enjoy the amenities like indoor pool, gym, whirlpool, business center and complimentary fresh cookies.
Hotel is one storey high only.
Includes continental breakfast of doughnuts, juice and coffee.
Fridge and microwave in all rooms.
Hotel very clean and well presented.
Staff at front desk very helpful.
Shuttle service to Disney, SeaWorld and Universal Stuidos is on time and the drivers are all great.
Plenty of dining services around near hotel and you will be spoilt for choice.
Clean, tidy and well presented.
Clean pool and area.
What amounts to a perfect honeymoon is a difficult question to answer. However, there is one point on which everyone agrees: honeymoon is a special occasion and it deserves to be celebrated in style. Honeymoon hotels are dedicated towards making this unique phase of your life truly memorable.
The very mention of honeymoon hotels still results in raising a few eyebrows. However, you will be surprised to know that the concept is not as new as it seems. Thomas Henkelmann Homestead Inn in Connecticut, for example, is a honeymoon hotel that is more than a century old. Its colonial style spacious bedrooms and lounges are still big hits among the newly wed.
One thing is for sure though: nothing can beat Florida, and particularly Miami as a honeymoon destination in the US. Some may swear by Las Vegas, others may vouch for San Francisco, but Florida’s endless beaches, beautiful weather and great social life provide a romantic setting that is just about perfect for honeymooning couples. Not surprisingly, it has more honeymoon hotels than any other place in the US.
It is difficult to choose the best among Florida’s many honeymoon hotels, but Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and Grand Cypress are the most popular ones. The Grand Cypress in Orlando is famous for its great décor and countless honeymoon activities, while the Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa speaks the last word in luxury and opulence.
pool, dinning, honeymoon hotel, spacious bedrooms and lounges
I guess the hotel has undergone an extensive multi-million dollar renovation. Unfortunately, we don't know what it's like.
We made our reservation in July and arrived as schedule in early November. We ere kept waiting to check in for more than hour. We were initially told that there was a security sweep in progress, but we later discovered that half the rooms weren't ready for guests--the renovations weren't completed. We were sent to another hotel where the Fontainbleau staff had reserved a room for us.
We later discovered that almost everyone on Miami Beach knew that Fontainbleau was not ready for guests. Bartenders, waiters, taxi drivers all told us that the reopening was way behind schedule. But the Fontainbleau management never contacted us prior to our arrival to notify us that the hotel wasn't ready. We were pretty much at their mercy.
When we got home again, we contacted the hotel management and complained about our treatment. They absorbed all the costs of our hotel in Miami Beach. It paid to complain.
