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

For the price this was a good hotel. No frills. Just a clean bed and a modest hotel. We only stayed one night. The area the hotel is located is OK, not real fancy but not scary either. The guy in room 20 who checked us in after hours as nice. We had no problems.

- very nice staff - clean room and with everything we needed - we arrived late but the keys were ready for us at the entrance. We only needed to send a notice through the Booking. - it is great for one night stay

We stayed for one night before we went cruising. Perfect place to stay. Good Mexican restaurant across the road. Friendly owner. Supermarket and other shops in the neighborhood. Port Everglades very close just as the airport.

Great location, less than a mile from Las Olas. Very friendly and helpful owner.Clean and comfortable room with all you really need and at a fantastic price for Fort Lauderdale. Would recommend the Water Taxi as a great day out.

Chuck the manager was quick to up us at ease. It was a step back in time with open beam ceilings, thick walls, etc. Took us to the room and explained that it was not new but it was clean and comfortable. The furniture, bedding and drapes appeared new and fresh. The shower is small and old but very clean... More

Bed was comfortable, bath less than desirable, very small shower, soap is too small, no fan but window opens. This motel is very... More

Booked one night after transatlantic flight. Arrived late due to hold ups at Fort Lauderdale Airport immigration and car hire. Phoned hotel to say I may be late and advised if after 23.00 the key would be left at reception. The hotel is a few miles from the airport but the Sat Nav found it no problem. It is an... More

For the most part, the other reviews are correct. It is an old motel, but extremely well maintained and clean. Room was adequate. A lot of road noise, since you are right on Federal Highway (we were second room back), a very busy 6 lane road. Quieter at night. Very friendly and helpful staff (they ordered a cab to the... More

Don't judge a book by it's cover! Although it looks about average from the outside, this place was a really good pick for a one night stay near the airport! It was very clean, tidy, and the bed was really comfortable. It was small and quaint and very quiet and peaceful at night. The air conditioner and ceiling fan were... More
