Initially I was pretty excited to stay at this hotel. It looked great online and it’s in a great location. However, I was quite disappointed when it was time to check in. The front desk attendants were nice when I was actually able to find them. The front desk was often left alone with a line of guests building up. It was extremely hard to find someone to help you. The room was extremely small and cramped.The bathroom was so tiny to the point where the toilet was practically touching the sink. The shower water was constantly spilling onto the floor leaving a puddle after every use. The towels were stained and the washcloths were dingy. The rooms didn’t even have a phone to be able to call the front desk. I had to use my cell phone and be only hold forever just to speak to someone. Not sure what type of relationship the restaurant in there has with the hotel but neither party seemed to know what the other was about. I had to go back and forth between the two to get any answers on anything. The valet was ridiculously expensive and street parking was basically non existent leaving us no choice. The hotel is in a great location though. On ocean drive but away from the hustle and bustle and right across from the beach.

We were at the Balfour for 5 nights and we had a very nice stay with them. The concierge staff was always helpful and nice. The hotel is in a great location. 1 block to the beach and about 3 blocks to the main attractions on Ocean Dr. The room was clean. The bed was comfy. The size of the room we had is a bit on the small side. I wish I knew before to book a larger room. The pictures that are posted. make the rooms look a lot bigger than they are. The restaurant in the hotel is pretty good and they also have a bar in the lobby. The hotel reception area is overall nice. The hotel does not currently offer access to beach chair and umbrellas like before. One of the ladies told us that they still offer the service, however you need to take a shuttle to a different part of the beach/hotel. Not sure exactly how easy it is to get there, we used the beach closest to the hotel. It would be nice if they offered the beach chairs close to the hotel. Overall, a nice stay.

To begin with this property does not have phones in the room. You have to call the switchboard on your cell phone to get anything done. Our bathroom had two towels and 1 washcloths no soap no shampoo no conditioner. I text to the office and told them what we needed and they did not bring it. Later in the day I called down to the office and told them and the lady brought up to towels and two shampoos and two conditioners with from three different companies. there was still no soap in the room and when I went down later I stopped by the desk and asked about soap and they didn't have any. This room had a coffee maker and cups but no coffee. I use the facilities downstairs in the restaurant and they didn't have any paper towels in there. I asked at the desk or told them that there was no paper towels and the woman went and went to the bar talk to a man picked up for bar napkins and brought them back and handed them to me to dry my hands with. The light in the bathroom blinks and it's not bright enough that you can even see to put makeup on. I liked the location of the facility and it was very busy very nice very beautiful but they're really lacking in a lot. The restaurant automatically adds an 18% gratuity and last night did not give me the printout and I thought the price was a little bit high and then ask her about the print out and so I had added a tip on the things she gave me which then I had to change. I like this place I like the location I don't like the fact that they'
