Can you say drawbridge horn? A review of Boca Raton Bridge Hotel
A nice, all-suite hotel with excellent views of the intercoastal and ocean from the balcony. BUT, the hotel is located right next to a drawbridge, and every time a boat goes through, a very loud horn blows to raise the bridge. This happens quite frequently from 6 am to midnight. We always take good earplugs on our hotel stays, so we had no problem sleeping, but the noise was irritating enough that we checked out after the first day and moved to a quieter (and cheaper) location. At these prices, you really should be able to expect amenities such as a lobby that's bigger than your hotel room, and occaisional peace and quite. I'm sure it's not a problem on the other side of the hotel, but if you step out on your balcony and it looks like you are right on top of the bridge, ask to move to another room immediately.
