Reviewer Comments:

We booked the Gecko Grotto room, and really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and generally nice. It is small, but a great place to lay your head at night. It is directly across from the continental breakfast area, so it could get noisy before we were ready to get up in the mornings. Also, the walls are pretty thin. We were able to turn the window unit air conditioner to the "On" position and drown most exterior noise with a/c white noise. The pool is very small--more like a large spa, but it was clean and cool. The property, in general, was well kept, but there were areas that could have been maintained a little better. The continental breakfast was by far the most underwhelming part of the stay. There was no sugar for the coffee on our first day and nobody in the property's on-site office to ask for more. There were limited choices of pastries, a few cups of fruit, and yogurt.

Reviewer Comments:

Left a day early, couldn't take the bugs in the room. Room very small! Was not worth he $300 plus a night, wasn't worth it! Couldn't cancel room after making reservations, I was told I had to cancel 60 days or more. I will not recommend this place to anyone! Had to park on street, only no parking spaces to be found!

Nice intimate and friendly place to stay,just enough to start the day with their breakfast. Room was nice and clean but the aircon was a little bit noisy if left on at night.Thepool was a little bit cold,but once you got in it was nice.The only problem ,we thought,was going to Whitehead street to book in and then hand your keys in when you leave

Reviewer Comments:

I stayed in Geckko Grotto. Others in my party were in the "king" rooms. The staff we interacted with (cleaning, shuttle, breakfast) were very nice and professional. The rooms were clean - the pool was dirty. Since I was single, the small room was ok. The bathroom is probably one of the better ones. It had a nice vanity and plenty of room. The room was clean and the "gift bag" was a nice touch Window air conditioner was noisy. Right outside this room is the breakfast/patio and pool. The daily breakfast was adequate, but I would have liked non-sugary cereal or oatmeal. The pool, however, was disgustingly dirty! Since it is spring, the tree above it was dropping "stuff" in the pool. There was TONS of this in the pool blocking the drains and thus, was beginning to develop algae. We called for pool maintenance, but they never came or called back. My sister cleaned the skimmers and all the debris out of the pool, so the filters could work. We left piles of tree stuff on the deck. By evening, it had started to clear up, but since we were leaving the next day, that did us no good. This property should have some on-site staff! The rental office is many blocks away. Very inconvenient!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We had issues with the pool equipment during your stay causing it to not filter correctly. The equipment has since been fixed and we apologize you encountered a dirty pool. We have on site staff on the weekends. Gecko Grotto is currently being renovated and will be completed on 5/6/17. We hope you are able to come back and enjoy it.

Reviewer Comments:

The pictures are done well. This is a decent place to stay. I was rather disappointed with the pool. It is very small and was VERY dirty the whole time I was there. I even tried taking the leaves out myself. For a Holiday weekend $280 a night was towards the lower end in price. The place is very close to Mallory Square and 2 blocks from Duval. However, to check in you have to go a block off duval st on the 1000 block. The house is in the 300 block. Not very convenient. My towel rack was broke and popped off the wall. The shower curtain fell down and we had to put it back. The AC unit had to run the whole time to keep the room cold. There was no unit in the bathroom and the sun shined directly inside in the morning. Would I stay here again? Probably not unless I got it very a very good price.

Location, location, location. But I was not pleased with the accommodations. Bare minimum space, perfect for a guy but not suitable for a lady.
