We arrived late at night in the pouring rain and Richard O'. unloaded our bags, checked us in and ran through the rain to deliver or belongings to our room! Later that evening he drove us to a restaurant to pick up some dinner and brought us back so we wouldn't get wet due to the monsoon that evening! Fantastic... More

This hotel is very affordable, clean, quiet, and only a couple blocks from the beach. If you're looking for a simple, clean room without all the frills, this place is great. The WIFI worked fine and the pool area was clean, small and quiet. Parking is free for 1 car which is hard to come by in Ft. Lauderdale. I... More

We liked this place so much that we actual re-arranged our vacation-plans. During our road-trip in Florida we found this peaceful little hotel were we stayed a couple of days. The day after we checked out, we took a family-meeting and decided to go back and spend the rest of our vacation at Beach Gardens. So here we are! It's... More

Beach Gardens was exactly what I needed for a Fort Lauderdale weekend trip. It was close to the site of my course, was clean and quiet. There is a pool, wish I had had time to get in. The rooms are not tricked out, but I wasn't looking for that. Kimberly at the office was very helpful, even when I... More

You can't beat the price for a hotel this close to the beach. It's clean and cozy. An older hotel that was recently renovated, it works well as a base of operations for trips to the beach. The only amenities are a pool and free WiFi. There is a barbecue for those who need it. If you do stay, be... More

We've booked our stay here some 2 months in advance. The price was good, very good if you take into account the fact that the hotel is located some 500 meters from the beach in Ft Lauderdale. No breakfast, but a microwave and coffee machine in the room, which was big with two queen sized beds and a perfect air... More

I stayed at the Beach Gardens in mid-May for four nights and it was a delightful experience from start to finish. I chose a smaller hotel because I wanted something different from the big-chain, impersonal transactions, and these folks delivered. I arrived after midnight and Jeffrey greeted me with warmth and kindness, showed me to my room, #500, and made... More

Cheri582014, It's always nice to hear from a local. Thanks for staying with us, and we hope that you'll come back again soon. We work hard to provide the most competitive rates in the area.
