Great Quality for the Price...BUT... A review of DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Melbourne Beach Oceanfront
This hotel was very nice overall but the room we stayed in did need some work. The staff was great and the room was well-equipped at the front where the comfy king-sized bed was and the view was terrific. The pool and jacuzzi were fabulous as well as the poolside cafe and the beach area was beautiful.
The fridge was noisy; the door handle was duct-taped together; the pull-out bed was as hard as a rock and the bedding like sleeping under burlap sacks. The pillows were pathetic as well - they seemed like bargain basement pillows that had been washed and thrown in the dryer and the stuffing was all balled up. (The bedding on the king-sized bed at the front was excellent however) There weren't any security strips on the sliding glass door leading to the balcony & I hit my head very hard walking into it thinking it was open. I guess you could commend them for having those doors nice and clean but I couldn't say the same about the carpets - they were disgustingly dirty. I had to keep shoes on at all times because the carpet was all sticky and when I walked on it in socks they got wet and turned brown on the bottom! Gross! I would recommend eating breakfast out as opposed to in the hotel since the buffet had only hot and cold cereal, mini pastries and hard mini bagels.
Overall I would expect a bit more quality for the price we paid. Probably won't stay here again unless they can promise a clean room with a more comfortable back room.
