    We stayed for the night while visiting from out of town..check in was fabulous from valet to front desk- spa perfect. Unfortunately, there were painters on our front deck when we arrived to our room- they were there in plain site for approx 1 hr. Considering our room was waterfront and check in is at 3pm -with the time change -we had 1 hour of daylight and the painters were our awesome view. There was a large amount of visible mold on the bottom of the glass shower door-dinner service was mediocre at best- food was lukewarm and just off as far as taste went-I had to ask for a second drink- we had requested a table by the fireplace and were not seated anywhere near there despite multiple open tables that stayed vacant for our entire meal-we are not picky people and have yet to write such a negative review but we will hold you to higher expectations at 400+ dollars a night.

    Took my husband for his birthday, we loved the view and location. However, the food was not meeting the minimum expectation, every dish was burned badly. I would not say anything in front of my husband, but the server did see the burned food when he brought the food to our table. We are from local but I don’t think that I will recommend to other friends.

    We love going to the Wharf At The Madison beach hotel! My husband and I took my sister-in-law there who's never been there who she and her husband live in Punta Gorda Florida where they just had the hurricane! She was in visiting solo her husband was still down in Florida trying to regroup from the hurricane with their house and everything involved in their life! She loved the ambience, sitting near the water and having a great view, she loved the food and the service! As did we as we always do ha ha! Martha was our server and she was fantastic! Very attentive to us the whole time! The sangria was awesome which Martha also suggested! Great time had by all!!
