Upon checking in, the staff was friendly but told us that there would be no one to contact after 5 until 9 am if we needed anything. I have had this situation before but didn’t think much of it. Upon entering the room, we were bombarded with a horrid musty smell and couldn’t place it but the room seemed broken down, but like they attempted to clean it. We had to leave quickly, so we didn’t have much time to inspect. Upon returning hours later, we found the largest cockroach immediately when it came scurrying across the floor! After screaming and yelling, and finally 3 women were able to pull it together and smash it with a shoe. It was on the wall above the bed at the time of the killing, and it’s remnants fell over the bedding. We are northern, so not used to cockroaches but I understand they do happen in Florida. The true issue is there was no way to get ahold of anyone to get the bedding changed or change rooms or anything. Upon checking the room for more, we found disgusting messes under the beds, in the shower and stains all over the bedding. We got out of there as quickly as possible. Do not stay here! It is broken down, musty, with cockroaches and no one to call!

Better than expected.spent 5 nights here and we love it.

Stay here few times .great location. Peacful and quiet.the grounds are beautiiful

I normally do not write any review; but this concerns personal safety so here it is. That night that I stayed at the hotel, a man came knocking at my door twice and then came back opening my door with his keys. I already locked the door, but because the room does not have a dead bolt lock, somehow he managed to open the door. I am a single woman traveling and at that time I freaked out as I was only wearing my underwear. I almost called the police and ended up staying awake the whole night. I kept calling both the hotel but got no response. The next day I talked to the front desk, they said they'd investigate but never got back to me. Make sure you are not alone staying in this place.

Great location and quiet Nothing to complain about, it’s all good👍

We stayed two nights and they didn't clean our room or give us new towels. I called the front desk and no one ever answered. No Wii Fi, at least I didn't know about it.

Great location, nice room with full kitchen, even Lawn Charis provided! Bed not too comfortable, and platform very squeaky and noisy. Girl at the front desk very nice, and got a room ready for us to check in early which was much appreciated. The main negative was the limited staffing of the front desk. No answer at several times during our stay. And then every mail box was full, so I could not leave a message. I couldn't access the Internet, and had other simple questions, but nobody was answering the phone, even during 8-5 business hours. Every hotel I've every stayed at has someone answering the phones, day and night.

This was my second time to Ocean Drive Villas. I like the proximity to the beach and the kitchen area. I also was able to invite some local friends over and use their barbecue. Some higher maintenance people might find it lacking, but the staff are polite attentive and the experience is just right for me.

Hard to find and crazy parking situation. I had to park and go in office to find parking. $10 for parking was a surprise to me.

Good overall...the price was right and it’s very close to the beach!

Nice and clean property. They have nice size rooms. Small bathrooms and kitchen area. You have everything in your room. Beds can be better. On the other hand; unique, clean and well maintained property. Front desk employees are helpful. Recommended place to stay. Thank you.

Veronica and Sasha are excellent front desk staffers. Spot is very nice and cozy.

We apologize for the situation you encountered during your stay with us. While all rooms are serviced by a professional pest control company monthly, in this tropical environment it is impossible to ensure pest free rooms. We appreciate your feedback and hope you had a pleasant trip home.

I am sorry you did not have as good an experience at the Ocean Drive Villas as we would have liked. In situations like this it is always a good idea to let the front desk now so we can fix the issues before you leave and make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
