We rented 1502 from Meyer for a quick Thanksgiving get-a-way. We got a great deal - stay 2 nights, get 2 nights free. The condo was beautiful and spacious. Clean. Nice furniture, comfortable beds. Great kitchen and appliances. The view of the lagoon was nice. It was quiet and we felt safe since you needed an elevator code to access your floor. There were lots and lots of bath towels. BUT.... a few minor things: Being 15 floors up with floor to ceiling glass 30/40 degree temps though was a bit chilly. We upped the heat to 84 and the master bedrooms and baths stayed freezing cold all the time. We could hear the wind whistling constantly and the thin curtains did nothing to block the cold! I ended up bunking with the kids in the bunk bed room because it was too cold for me in the master bedroom! And for some reason, there was no hair dryer in the unit. Even cheap motels have hair dryers these days. That was a bit of an inconvenience since myself and my daughters have long hair and it made it uncomfortable and even colder sitting around with wet hair. Also there are lots of extra pillows in the closet but no sheets or pillow cases other than what was on the beds. Some of the extra blankets looked as if they hadn't been washed in a while. We did see that Sandy lady sitting in the lobby. She COMPLETELY ignored us. We went in and out many times and not once did she acknowledge us or even glance in our general direction. Not even a hello or good morning -- NOTHING -- which I thought was QUITE RUDE!!!!!!!
Overall, I was pleased and it was only about $120/night. I'd stay here again but only if I can find a special price again.
