The handicapped lift wasn’t working until Thursday. The fan in our bathroom, which had louvers wasn’t working, so there was no sound privacy in the bathroom. We were told they’d fix it when we leave. I specifically asked for a handicap room adjoining with ours and for the handicap room to have a walk in shower. The handicap room had a climb in tub, which my mother could not use, so she used the walk in shower in our room. I asked for the resort fee for my 80 year old mother to be waived and was told it was non negotiable. I was contacted on Tuesday by Jordan Post about my concerns. I replied to his email only to receive no email back. They didn’t refill our waters and coffee any day we were there.

We do apologize that we weren't able to accommodate every aspect of your stay we have addressed this concerns with our team so this won't in the future. We apologize for not having a ADA room. Unless your reservation is booked for the ADA room then it becomes a request. Which we did accommodate. All guest pay for resort fees.

Like the location and size of the hotel. Really dislike the pressure to sit with a sales team at check in. The Modern is listed as a hotel but guests are pressured into a pitch on investing in the property.

Loved the view from our room of the ocean and the balcony. Cute little touches like seashells and a ukelele were awesome in the room, as well. Also, loved having a fridge!
