Recently stayed one week in this pet friendly motel right on the beach. The staff were most kind and always friendly and helpful, like family particularly the house keeper. Only 8 rooms, clean and roomy. You can literally see the ocean through the front door. We look forward to our next stay.

The location was great, beautiful stretch of beach, beautiful sunrises, walking distance to the newly refurbished LBTS center. The room and hotel istelf was not great. We had oceanfront #2 and it was musty (to be expected I guess), cracked plaster, cracked grout, rusty microwave, and just a sad, rundown little place. Our lock to our door looked like it...

I don't need a lot of fluff... how can you beat French doors that open to the ocean, 50 feet away? Management/cleaning staff were great. Walking distance to a great corner with pubs and restaurants. There are four rooms that open directly to the ocean. The two on the second floor give you a bit more privacy. The staff says...

This is a great place for an event. If you can fill eight rooms, you have a hotel all to yourself. Naturally, as an older and smaller property, it needs some renovation and maintenance. But you get a pool / jacuzzi in a courtyard, and a beach outside your room. You would have to pay a lot more for an...

We went in March and stayed there because of Frommer review. Ignore any travel guide recs for this place. Heed the reviews by guests who've stayed. The location and view are very, very good. But the cleanliness, guest relations and management are horrible. Security can be an issue also. As mentioned, the locks are a concern. More significantly, there is...

It's on the beach...What can I say? It was WELL worth the value and those wanting something more should pay double the price at other establishments on the water. The room was quaint and although the bed was a bit hard (for our liking)...WHAT a view and the small balcony overlooking the beach added to its charm. The customer service...

Very bad expierience. The pool is a health hazard-beyond disqusting. The rooms at first glance seem ok but when you actually look around you just want to get out. Dirty, and old. You might try to fool yourself that it is worth the stay because of the great location, that is what I did , but after settling in after...

Do not disregard the other bad reviews because of the reasonable-sounding responses by management. I made that mistake... and I do not recommend you stay here. We arrived after-hours, and, as expected, the key to our room was left at the front door. Unfortunately, the door to the room we were assigned was broken, preventing it from completely closing. No...

I have stayed at the Courtyard Villa in 2010 and 2011 and intend to stay in 2012. I have not wrote a review before and found some of the reviews on here not very fair to the hotel. Altough it is not 5 star is is comfortable and has fantastic access to the beach and the shops. Staff are really...

Admidst the mess that most Fort Lauderdale hotels are due to young tourists and spring breakers we were happy to find peace and quite here. Room Five is very spacious. we paid $130 a night....as others stated a few of the other rooms are much smaller. Room five has full size sleeper sofa, coffee table, queen bed with two nightstands...
