Rude night clerk that greeted us. Old food in the vending machine that only take chaneed or dollars no larger bill changers anywhere. If not for the night clerk they would have gotten 5 stars from me everyone else was extremely friendly.
We really liked the atmosphere and the staff. Everyone was helpful and fun to talk too. The beach view is great! The Tiki bar was fun and efficient!
Not impressed with the overall condition.
Beach front location, relatively quiet . Bed was comfortable and seemed clean. , . - Room was very dark, old beaten up furniture, - very small sink area and bathroom, - air conditioner was not possible to shut off or adjust, it was unnecessary noisy and cold in the room. - terrible pillows, used my own travel pillow - Kind of very gloomy depressing room. - very cold inside lobby and restaurant. weather was rainy but staying inside was even worse
Clean friendly staff. Drinks great! That I had to leave.
Liked the pool and beach The rooms felt old, dated and carpet was old and smelly.
Loved the location. My husband and I really wanted to spend time at the beach and relax. Restaurant lighting is more cafeteria style and lacks ambience. Food was not good, burned & a major disappointment.
Good: on the beach location Not so good: daily parking fee
View was fantastic. Front desk was excellent in getting our rooms near each other. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Guess the only thing I didn't like was paying $18 per day for parking whether you parked it yourself or used valet.
We stayed 3 days it was nice my kids enjoy it alot, you have the pool and the beach right there,it was awsome, the location was great you have a big Boulevard of restaurants, cafe,a small mall...all in front of the beach... I did not like that you have to rent the chair and umbrella,of the beach that should be included,
Rooms need update. Lobby and the other parts of hotel have been updated.
Location on the beach with easy access was nice. Also, I appreciated that they let you take pool towels onto the beach (at least I didn't see a sign telling you not to). It wasn't just the outdated room infested with ants that irritated me (not the biting kind; the ones that just seek out food residue). It was really the little things that pissed me off. Like in the bathroom, which seemed nice and updated but then you realize that the sink doesn't turn off. And the toilet paper holder doesn't fit the slots in the wall. Also, remember that their private beach is THEIR private beach, not yours. If you want to sit in a chair or have some water you must buy it from THEM. You can't bring your own. This is basically a $69 budget hotel in a great location which allows them to jack up the room rates.
This hotel was an unexpected treat because has the original architecture, lighting and friendly staff without even trying to market their retro vibe. Reminds me of the hotels in the south florida mysterIes I love to read, Best part, I was a little worried because I was unfamiliar with the area, no problems at all, we even left our car unlocked without knowing. Great bar and fun bartender, make sure you ask the price of the "Skittle" shot offered before you order one or more!!!
Staff was was friendly, WIFI was very sporadic....and had to be outside to use it. So bring a long Ethernet cable as the port may not be in an ideal location (mine was hidden behind the TV stand) . Bar was closed (by the state of Florida.....not sure why.) Close to Beach, local stores and restaurants. Not fancy....no frills....but a good value. WIFI isn't strong ....must be outside of room (in patio area) to use. Even then it was sporadic. Parking was a little limited due to the rear parking lot losing about 10 spaces due to being flooded.
The hotel was located across the street from the beach which was easily accessible. Many restaurants and clubs were nearby. Staff was helpful when we were in need of cab service. The bathroom, although small, had been recently renovated. The hotel is in need of updating. Many things were outdated. We felt the room was overpriced, although we were there during high season.
The staff were very pleasant & helpful. The hotel was in a prime location and we could use two beaches. One was within 5 - 10 minutes walking distance and the 'Fort Lauderdale Beach' was 5 - 10 minutes on the bus. There were a great choice of restaurants in the area too.
It is a "nothing special hotel", next to a very busy road. Luckily my room was not noisy. Maybe the breakfast is a little boring after a few days. Also the wireless had problems in my room.
Too far from airport and ship port. Was not clean. Didn't book our shuttle when we requested it. Continental Breakfast was awful.
The staff was very friendly. I was happy to be close to the beach. For the money I paid, I was very far from the airport and any sort of night life. But that was definitely not the worst. I do not like to give bad reviews, but the room was hot and musty, the mattresses were covered in plastic and worst of all, my friend got BED BUGS. Talk about being embarrassed about booking that room. I would not recommend the hotel to anyone.
I liked the staff, the kinda retro vibe, low keyed. It was right next to the beach, just had to cross the A1A. Bar right there, free breakfast. Lauderdale by the Sea is more relaxed than Ft. Lauderdale and they didn't allow spring breakers in so there was never loud noise. I would highly recommend this hotel. It was all fine. It isn't luxury by any means so if you like super fancy, this isn't the place. Other than that, it was perfect.
Customer service was horrible. I damaged by vehicle on the building because there were no signs warning me of a sharp turn. When I asked for help the staff was rude. When I asked for assistance from the manager over the phone he made excuses for his staff and refused to help with expenses to fix my vehicle.
Nothing that we liked, my wife wanted to leave immediately and couldn't wait to leave, we travel the world, but this hotel is no three star, may be less than one.
Nothing. I could not wait to check out. Nonsmoking room smelled like smoke. the room I was transferred to had the A.C. off. I had the front desk figure out the connection. the room did not cool off until after 3 A.M.
