My family stayed here for a few days while on vacation and we were very pleased! Alba and Danielle were very friendly and helped us out with any questions that we had. The location was perfect with it being just right close to the beach, along with restaurants and shopping. The rooms were clean and we had great service every... More

The stay was wonderful. Very convenient location and the service was great. The manager Danielle checked on us to see how we were doing once she'd see us. The place is clean and comfy. No complaints at all.

Nice room, manager Danielle is fantastic. The warm ocean is very close, what else do we need? Wi-Fi could be improved a bit with a couple of range extenders perhaps? Thank you again Danielle, my parents enjoyed their stay and I liked my visit too.

I was a little apprehensive about booking this place. I was afraid it was going to be a roach motel, but I was pleasantly surprised. The rate was low with close proximity to the beach and restaurants. The room was very clean and came with free WIFI too. I didn't take advantage of the two pools on property because there... More

So, I was originally supposed to go to Atlantic City for a birthday trip, but changed it to Fort Lauderdale. I found this place a very great rate. The only reason I booked it was because of the great reviews. Danielle even gave me an upgraded room. It was right by the beach and close to stops and restaurants. Traffic... More

I believe this little gem has the potential to be a boutique hotel with the new management, continued renovations and upgrades in standards. We spent two nights in an un-renovated suite with a kitchen, and it was comfortable, quiet and spacious enough, and better than many of the unbranded hotels/motels in the immediate area. Since it is an older property,... More

First off the hotel is centrally located. 3 minute walk to beach and all the shops/restaurants. Upon arriving, we were early, our room was still occupied. So instead of making us wait, Alba opted to put us in another room, which had been recently remodeled. Which was awesome, it had a nice little kitchen nook, which made our stay even... More
