    Location was pretty good.

    Was been remodel, didnt clean your room, horrible smell, and what was worst is the there was not a ramp for a baby stroller or for u to roll your bags you had to carry your bags to the stairs I think that was very inconvinient.

    The room was dirty and sometimes i saw cocroaches. I was staying For 5 nights in a suite with river view and my room was cleaned just 1 time! I had to call housekeeping myself to change towels, cause it was no phone in the room. There r 2 guest elevators and it's to long to wait sometimes! In my confirmation it sais: telephone, wooden floor, hairdryer. I got Nothing of that!

    Almost nothing.....except maybe the parking which was offered as a part of the package.....but the rest is extremely bad.

    Worst place I have ever stayed at........No services, staff not professional, not secured as rooms do not have any kind of securing locks, extremely poor maintenance, lights in the room were mostly not working, elevators are extremely in a very bad consition & not safe......... Privacy is not to be mentioned at all in this place........we have suffered from the staff knocking our doors every day at 9 & 10am insiting to change the towels!!!!!!!! Also we encountered the staff to come over to the room & open with their key with our even knocking on the door!!!!!!! Conclusion, avoid this place.

    Construction site and cheaply run and operated, highly overpriced and the pictures of the hotel at your site are unrepresentative of the actual site. The restuarant was horrible, overall it was a very over priced low budget place. Shame on you for representing it as you do in your pictures.

    The .Design Suites was in need of repair paint chipping in Room and elevator tile broken missing wood in elevator dirty just no money spent on fixing up the Hotel no pride in Ownership

    I am Mark D.Deibler I had stayed at the Design Suites At Castle Beach room 1427 I rented the room from Booked.net at a cost of $349.00 or more thought the place looked nice for what they were charging the first night, I felt biting but there were no visa able marks other than small red marks, I felt it must be a typical Florida bug like no see em or mosquitos but then the following night more and it was just from sleeping in the bed, I return home from my business trip with bites on back both arms, Legs and hand went to Family doctor he said that this looks like Bed Bugs bite patten 3 in a group or straight line . I am positive all of my bites came from the beds in Suite 1427 I slept in both and was attacked in the beds and not outside or in the room only while sleeping These bites are very painful and also itch a lot. Please have the room checked out as this can get very bad and spreads room to room. I would consider a trip back but would need some assurance that the rooms to not carry biting bugs at the least I would like a full credit to my credit card.

    I love the way the it is design, and all access parking.

    bigger fridge and stove with oven in reg suites.

  • Couple

    We got a good room of the 12th floor with a ocean view. Every day we had a problem to go down or up with an elevator, becouse it was always full of employee . Beach was near the hotel, a very narrow but long, so you can find a favorite place for yourself. The holet is far away from the shops and nightlife.

    In the room there was all kitchen's equipment and dishes. Near the beach. I would recomend this hotel for families that want to save the money. Not recomended fot the foreigners and tourists without a car.
