“Impressed!”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

We cruised into Ft. Laud with some friends and no hotel reservations. We called around and some of our options were full or their prices were too high, so we drove down the road to see what we could find. I went inside this hotel, got a decent rate, liked what I saw and we decided to stay for the night. We were so impressed that we extended it to 3 nights. The staff is amazing, they treat you as though you're staying at a 5 star hotel, esp. Frank, the breakfast staff member. He seats everyone at breakfast, gives you a tour of the spread (which is quite impressive, esp. considering it's free) and remembers everyone and checks in on how things are going, if anyone needs travel tips, etc. He makes breakfast enjoyable. The location is great! It's less than a block from the beach and 2 blocks from the water taxi stop. It's also only about a 10 minute walk to all of the excitement along the beach in Ft. Laud. There's a small pool and bar at the hotel as well. The rooms seemed to be newly renovated. Definitely would return here! Note: check out Bahia Cabana, one block away, a great waterfront casual dining spot, with live music.

I booked this hotel last minute because the location. The location is definitely good, just minutes away from the beach and the Water Taxi stop. But I really do wish I had booked somewhere else. Don't get me wrong, the room was clean, I had no problems with the service, drinks at the bar were cheap and the inclusive breakfast was pretty nice. But we didn't really have a good time in the room. The balcony faced the wall of another hotel and there was no view of anything. I would recommend a view of the swimming pool or street if possible, therefore letting some light in. In regards to the location, its nice during the day but at night its kind of a long walk to the stretch of bars and restaurants by Las Olas Blvd and there's only a couple of hotel restaurants right by the hotel. Also the tv in the room was an old tube which had really limited channels. I know a lot of people stay here pre-cruise which is probably fine if all you need is a place to stay but if you want the room to be part of your vacation experience I I would pass on this place.

Room Tip: Try getting a room where the balcony has a view of the swimming pool or street or you might get stuc...

Friendly staff who were willing to accomodate us with early check-in options when we needed it. Clean room and modern bathroom. Excellent location at the end of the beach strip with restaurants, although the better restaurants seem to be at the other end of the strip and would be a very far walk from this hotel. We have stayed here twice and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here 2 nights before our cruise, the location was great, walking distance to the beach and shops and restaurants. The hotel is a little dates but very clean, friendly staff and great breakfast which is included in the price. They let me check in early as we arrived at 10am, they also let me check out late. Other hotels in the area are nicer but twice the price, this hotel is perfect for a pre cruise trip.

Room Tip: The sundeck rooms were a little noisy because the pool was underneath us.
