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

We arrived very late, midnight, our key was left by the front door of the office for us. The owner still came out and helped us with our bags.Rooms are adequate for two, with air and fan. 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

The owner is the manager and is a nice person who is helpful and the area is just around the corner from town which is nice. The place itself is extremely dated and basic would be a very polite way of putting it. Don't expect too much.

The room was average, however the motel is on the main hwy which runs north/South and was quite noise'y and... More

I had a quick stay here before leaving for the Bahamas. The Manager was nice and waited a bit for us to get there because our flight got pushed back. The place is clean but older. the shower is a little small but if you are looking for a clean bed that you are just going to spend a few... More

It's exactly as everyone else has described it: old buildings, spotlessly clean, noisy location on the highway. If you just want a cheap place to drop your stuff, sleep, clean up, and you can live with a lot of ambient noise, this is a great location. The bed and pillows were comfortable, it had a small fridge and coffee maker,... More
