Charming, but a few warts.
The property is older and on the national Historic Registry. It is well kept and maintained. Our room was spacious and had a kitchenette, small bedroom area, and a seating area. The kitchenette came stocked with towels, dishes, silverware, a full size coffee maker, and even dishwashing soap. Check in is at 4 pm and she. We arrived we still had to wait over an hour because our room wasn’t ready. The room was moderately cool but still a little muggy and sticky. The little window AC unit ran all the time but the wasn’t very cold. Be warned check out is 10 am and they appear to be militant about it. They called us at 9 am to remind us to be out of there by 10 am. Parking was nearly impossible and extremely tight. They appear to have a very popular pool side bar that many of the locals come to and they take up much of the parking. At the time of this writing Covid is still a thing and almost. No one except the staff and handful of guests were wearing masks. It was a bit unnerving. There is lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. The main pool is very popular and the drinks during happy hour are very reasonable. There is a second pool that is larger and much quieter if that is more your speed. We had mixed reviews about our stay and my wife wants to give it another shot. I am on the fence. Overall the property was very charming but things like tight parking can’t be fixed. Things like having your room ready should’ve been fixed.

Head a great stay. Location was perfect. Service was professional. Food service was slow, but expected with the crowd. Overall, a great experience. Will be the first place I look when booking in Vero again.

This is more a destination than just a hotel
We were told by my BIL that just getting a one night stay was very lucky since folks have to wait for months to get reservations. We wee booked into a 4th floor room and the view was spectacular, close to the bar/restaurant and were very pleased with accommodations. the only issue and I suppose this is a matter of personal taste, but the pillows suck. Four little ones (now in vouge), but hard as a rock and difficult to get comfortable without lots of work. Other than that hiccup, we'll be back. The food was excellent at Waldos and the floor show was a blast.

Loved the location and the beach... unit smelled like moth balls when we first arrived. Took awhile to air out. Unit was dated but very clean ... until in the evening a roach crawled across the floor. Ick.
