Stayed only one night before jumping on a cruise ship to Cozmel Mexico. The room was clean and cozy. Would definitely stay again. Unfortunantly there was not a soda/pop machine on the premise so bring your own soda's and drinking water.

We have been staying at this hotel for years. It was recently sold but we decided to stay with the new owners. Upon arrival there was no one there to greet us. The previous owner was always there to greet us no matter what time we arrived and our room was always available. We called the number that was left... More

I spent here over a week in January. I highly recommend this hotel to everybody who wants to live close to the beach. Rooms are nice and clean, very friendly staff ! Few steps to the beach/park, Broward B cycle station, walking distance to Las Olas/A1A intersection.

Hotel was nice and welcoming in a great location. When our taxi didn't show up to take us to our cruise, the OWNER of Blarney Castle personally drove us to our cruise terminal to ensure we would not be late. Outstanding customer service and a place I would return just to be loyal.

Let me start with honesty. My kids left their ipods,ipads,iphones, and annoying bickering SOMEWHERE...WE actually heard them speak nicely and saw them smile. We gathered first mornings for dip in uncrowded pool...sat together poolside for breakfast. YES,I am not dreaming...it happened. Every morning Rachel opens office with fresh coffee and donuts. We Walked to beach, used water taxi...today i walked... More

I've stayed here several times over the last 5 years and never been disappointed. The manager, Rachael, is fantastic. She goes out of her way to accommodate all of her guests. The rooms are always clean and the staff continue to amaze me.I had the not so pleasure of meeting the new owner, Greg, during my most recent stay. He... More

nice room, a little dated, clean, parking is tight, a few blocks from the beach and some restaurants, pool and a fair size area just to hang around by the pool, check in was good, no one there at 7am to check out with, doors were actual keys, no where to put them

We liked the place, close to the beach. Quite simple, but it works well, you can cook if you like, there is a kitchen in the room. The rooms are big and spacy clean and nice. In the reception there is a very flexible and nice man who let us keep the room until we left in the evening.

The motel is close to the beach, and considering the location I think we got great value for the bucks we paid. The elevator seems out-of-service. We got the 320 penthouse with a kitchen, (2-burner-working range, toaster, coffee machine, big fridge, cutlery) living room, couple other rooms. Looks like late 90's, but it seems Rachel's remodelling, we always saw handymen... More

The Blarney Castle is in a great location about 1 block from the beach, the motel is small and has a great lay out, and the property manager, Rachel, was very accommodating. I really wanted to like the place, but didn't due to the bug problem. My daughter and I checked in, dropped our luggage off in our 2nd floor... More
