This motel is Awesome!!!! The property manager Rachel made our stay top notch... Whatever we needed whether it be directions or information she took care of us.... The lobby is under construction and is going to look amazing when completed.... I will definitely stay here every time I am in Ft Lauderdale and will tell my friends and family.....

We arrived at the hotel before check-in time, but Rachel was outstanding with getting us into our room early. She even helped getting our luggage to our room. The lobby has been getting updated and looks fantastic. During our 5 day stay Rachel was constantly out on property running around helping everyone with anything they needed. She really goes above...

Staff was too loud and their break "room" was right outside my room, I could hear them talking and smell their cigarettes. Proprietor was never on-site. Not kitschy cool but kitschy sad. That, said value was great and only 4 minutes walking distance from my conference hotel.

I travel to Fort Lauderdale a couple times a year and stay here everytime. It is an older style of hotel that made this City famous. It is always clean and the staff is great. You can park your car and walk to the popular spots of the City. A awesome value and location.

Terrible dirty little place, frothy pool, dead roaches on the kitchen cloth, live roaches running on the stove and counter tops. Check in/out was done by calling a number no front desk staff, open rooms, etc...such a strange place by 2am it got loud with some pretty scary looking people, didn't even bother to complain. Don't stay here! Run far... More

This motel was odd. The lobby was under renovation, so guests were given a phone number to call. A girl named Rachel appeared to be the only person working. While the rooms were clean and comfortable, I wouldn't stay here again. Twice we had cars parked behind us, preventing us from leaving. We had to get in touch with Rachel... More

Nice people. Very nice room with a well stocked kitchen with utensils. Pool area is very well maintained and very clean. 2 minute walk to the water. This place was great. When we go back again next year I surely will stay there. Nice room, great location and the price was great too. What else can we say. The Blarney... More

This is a very dated hotel but it was clean. We would not recommend it because there's low life people actually living on the premises. This is home to them and you feel like you're invading their privacy and being watched at all times. It was a very strange place and honestly think if people didn't actually live there, it... More

My wife and I just walked in the door of the motel (it's our anniversary) and we found two bottles of wine, as well as a card wishing wishing us a happy anniversary. The room is GREAT and very clean. It's very obvious that they really care about the experiences of their guests. 100% A+ grade
