We found this hotel when looking for a cheap overnight stay prior to boarding our cruise ship. The Manager was quick to answer the door after we arrived and provided us with our room key. The room was clean and satisfactory. Older shag carpet probably not the best for a hotel, but it works. The hotel was right off a... More

This motel is out dated and room could use an update, but the room was clean.The rooms did have a small fridge and microwave. Very friendly staff. If your just staying for a day or two and on a tight budget this is the place. If you have kids and are looking for stuff to keep them occupied this might... More

It is a very old building. Room was clean although everything was very old. Worst part was the bathroom. It was my first time having a shower in such a bathroom! The manager was friendly though we just met him for checkin and checkout. Not good for couples!

Stayed here a total of 3 nights. A fair value,considering the location. Convenient if flying into FLL. Room was rough (old),but clean. Bed was comfortable enough. Very small shower stall,with low (and I mean low) shower head. Being a smoker,I went outside to smoke on numerous occasions,and at all hours. There was a continuous stream of some real questionable characters... More

I was totally unfamiliar with the area, and searched TripAdvisor and other sites for budget motel reviews. This seemed like a good value within a short drive of the Ft Lauderdale/Hollywood Airport, so I booked a 3 night stay. The motel is located on busy Hwy 1- Federal Highway, just short of where it joins Sunrise. It is probably roughly... More

Find another motel if you can. The door didn't close unless you slammed it. The room itself was ok. Clean but dated. I wouldn't cook on the stove. When my fiancee got up to get a drink in the middle of the night, he saw a bug in the kitchen. For the price you can find a better motel

I wanted an inexpensive motel which would be clean. This is a classic old building has very small rooms which are clean. The rooms are not renovated but are heavily painted clean. Fresh carpet and a few unique details such as an old wood ceiling make up for other elements of comfort such as a larger shower.

Stayed in this motel one night after a long flight over the Atlantic. The location was good right by the highway (US-1) so if you're renting a car it's a good place for the night. The rooms were small but clean but the AC was too small and didn't cool the room enough. This motel for the price is well... More

The wife and I stayed for two nights whilst travelling around Florida. First of all, the reception by the owner was friendly and helpful. The room I can only describe as being 'compact', It was a square room with a bed double bed wedged into a recess in the wall with a cupboard to its immediate right. Although the room... More
