We were pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem. We stayed here the Sunday after our 7 day Norwegian cruise. We arrived around 11:00. We figured that we wouldn't be able to check in. We were wrong. She immediately took us to our room. We had hoped to go to the beach, but it was a downpour all day. The room... More

After consulting the reviews on trip advisor we booked a stay at beach gardens. It seemed to be the better choice of all the other local hotels with in the same price range. ($150 a night) We made a request for a second floor room based on reviews about noise. They gave us a great room right at the front... More

My husband and I stayed here for five nights in late March for a getaway from the snow. The price was very reasonable, considering its only two blocks or so from the beach. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Having the kitchenette was definitely a plus. The pool area is nice and quiet but we had a hard time getting our... More

We stayed in room 105 which was really an efficiency Apt. It had a refrigerator, coffee pot, stove top, micro. Could have been an ikea show room, bed comfortable. 3 blocks from the beach. We booked another stay before we left. No privacy locks on the door, staff opened our door while we were napping in the room twice. Don't... More

My stay at the Beach Gardens was not a good one. My wife and I wanted to stay in Fort Lauderdale for 6 nights prior to a cruise and just relax. I had read the reviews about the lack of sound proofing here so when I booked my reservation (through their website) I requested and received confirmation for a second... More

This is a gem of a property consisting of a cluster (4?) of small "mid- century modern " two story buildings with exterior entrances opening onto breezeway catwalk walkways. Stairs only. I had a standard queen room for $108 ($120 with tax). This is the "hotel industry queen" so it is a much smaller bed than our queen bed at... More

We spent 4 nights in this hotel while on a business trip. It is in a great location on Orton, only a few blocks from the beach and a great deal for the price.
