The Fortuna is a well run establishment with two pools and comfortable fatboy bean bags and lounge chairs to sprawl out on while sipping drinks. The rooms were cheery and colorful with refrigerators and microwaves. We stocked up on breakfast and lunch supplies by taking a short drive to the local publix. The liquor store is about a half mile...

Stayed here one night prior to boarding a cruise. The overall presentation is what you would expect of a 3 star motel but what really disappointed was the state of the floor in our room - our 2 childrens feet were completely black after 5 minutes of walking around. It was like they had been playing on the road. Also...

I liked Fortuna a lot. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and were kind enough to wait until I arrived rather late from the airport to help me get settled. They were also kind enough to allow me to print off my boarding passes the night before I left Fort Lauderdale. The room was a small single king -...

We booked the hotel through Expedia for the Fortuna's sister hotel Seville but Expedia over booked the hotel. We arrived at the hotel around 7pm and finding another hotel at that time during spring break would have been impossible. Paul rose to the occassion by upgrading us by relocated us to the Fortuna. He gave us a late check out...

This refurbished motel is lovely. It is a short walk to the beach and numerous restaurants. There is also a CVS within walking distance. There are two pools. The one by the main office was quite cold. I don't know if the other was heated. Our room was spacious & looked over the pool. 1203 was a good size but...

Recently my husband and I stayed at the Fortuna and it was fabulous. I had made a mistake with my reservation but both Victor and Paul worked diligently to fix it for me. They worked above and beyond to make our stay great. The hotel is modern, clean and stylish. The rooms are spacious and the pool is a plus....

The room was so cheerful with its bright colors and happy designs! We really enjoyed our one-night stay just hanging out relaxing. It is within walking distance of the beach, but the property between it and the beach is in pretty rough shape, so it didn't feel like the safest walk. Overall, I would definitely recommend this cute place, and...

Fort Lauderdale is an expensive place to stay, so with five team members in town for a trade show, I did a lot of searching to find the right balance of quality, price and proximity to the convention center. Fortuna Hotel was the second-cheapest three-star hotel that met all my criteria. Since I'd been unimpressed by the cheapest option last...
