Cool old school motor inn -type hotel. Nothing fancy, but right across the street from the beach, and a relative bargain price-wise. No parking fee, resort fee, or any of that. They have some beach items to borrow, if you need a chair or umbrella. Lots of dining/bar choices nearby. Rooms are basic, but nicely decorated. Really nice rooftop patio...

Thanks for choosing us! That's an interesting description "cool old school motor inn-type". We try to pay homage to the old days of classic Fort Lauderdale as you might have noticed by the art in the rooms. We try to keep our rates under the competition so guests enjoy the Snooze. We've never understood why some hotels charge a "resort...

Super cute boutique hotel right on the beach strip in Ft Lauderdale. Walking distance to great restaurants and bars and a 5 dollar uber ride to Las Olas street, which is full of great restaurants, bars, shopping and fun night life. The hotel has a roof top deck with a beautiful beach view where events can be held. There are...

Thank you for your kind 5 star review! I do love those double king rooms. They are a spacious 450 square feet. I also agree that hotel rooms with 2 king beds are hard to find. Since we have so many dining and entertainment options around us, I tend to forget about Las Olas. Thanks for pointing that out to...

Great experience all around. Started with a nice surprise at check in - someone who booked the ocean view suite had cancelled and my husband and I got upgraded for free.

Wow! Thanks for your compliments and your thorough review! Every now and then, we are able to give a free (or reduced price) upgrade. It's always fun to surprise people with that especially if it is one of our oceanfront suites. We try to have everything you need and want including FREE parking and FREE wireless.

The hotel is simple, but really shines in it's convenient location right at the beach. Free parking and all the things you need to enjoy your time at the beach (umbrella, chairs, coolers, etc). The onsite property manager was also very nice and helpful, pleasure to deal with.

Thanks Michael for choosing the Snooze and for your kind words! Much like beach life, we keep the hotel clean and simple. We try to provide all the things you need without making you pay for what you don't need. That way we keep our prices lower than the gargantuan chain hotels which surround us. Again, thanks for staying with...

One night trip to Ft. Lauderdale and did not want to stay in a big box hotel. Found Snooze on trip advisor and easily booked. Pleasantly surprised with room 201. Watching the sun rise from the balcony was heavenly. Snooze supplies everything right down to the sunscreen for its patrons. Many restaurants nearby. My only complaint is that the air...

Truly lovely little hotel. We booked one of the very large suites overlooking the beach. Decor is just perfect for a beach spot - light, clean, casual. Great colours and designs. Absolutely spotlessly clean everywhere. Full kitchen was much appreciated. We arrived before check-in time on a cruise ships port day and the manager was very accommodating getting us a...

My husband and I started our vacation in the Keys, traveled to Naples and Siesta Key and ended up in Fort Lauderdale at Snooze. We were not quite sure what our experience would be as we usually pick hotels with more amenities. This place is great. We overlooked the ocean. The room was spotless and our bed was very comfortable....

Thank you! Most people are hesitant to book a "boutique hotel" since you aren't sure what you will get. Those of you who do take a chance kind find some great spots while supporting local economies. We are honored that you consider us a "little gem"! I will pass on your praise to our housekeeping team. Barbara and Gabby work...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy our hotel as much as you had in the past. The owner did come out when you called and came by again a few hours later just to make sure the other room was quiet. The ladies in the room next to yours should have been more...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Snooze is a modern take on the essentials needed for your home away from home. We believe traveling in style should be affordable without any hidden costs - just pay your room rate plus tax and that's it! We offer a clean, comfortable and modern room, plus add free parking, wifi, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. Keep in mind we offer the essentials so...No pool, no 24 hr service, no phones, no spa, no bell boy, no valet and no chocolates on your pillows. Why spend the extra money on extras you don't need? We are the last oceanfront Ft. Lauderdale hotel left with less than 20 rooms. There are plenty of "big box" branded hotels out there and we are proud we are not one of them. Snooze is located directly accross the street from Fort Lauderdale Beach next to the Westin and Ritz Carlton hotels. Direct Ocean View, Kitchenette and Hotel Rooms are available at the property. The airport (7 miles), cruise terminal (5 miles) and convention center (5 miles) are just minutes away. Free Wi-Fi and beach chairs and towels. Free parking as long as it is not an over-sized vehicle. Our check-in age is 25 and older. ... more   less
