We were looking for an inexpensive hotel in Ft Lauderdale to begin and end our cruise with Celebrity. Beach Garden, which I located on TripAdvisor, fit the requirements. The staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are adequate in size and very clean. The setting, on a fairly quite street, comes with pool and palms. It is a short five... More

Just returned from a week long trip to Beach Gardens and am a bit disappointed with my stay. While the hotel is clean and close to the beach there are quite a few things you find aren't quite as advertised when you arrive - 1. Pool is Unheated......You can however walk a block to another one of their hotels that... More

Very nice location: a typical hotel refurbished (thankfully they are saving these small typical places, despite demolition and built skyscrapers). Room is basic, but big and clean. Swimming pool area is not very big, but very relaxing. Staff is friendly and helpful. It's just a couple of blocks from the beach. Prices are fair.

Beach Gardens is one of the North Beach Village group hotels- more than 500 rooms scattered across a number of "mid-century modern" style hotels, all newly renovated by a Swedish developer who is breathing new life into these little architectural gems- including encouraging new restaurants and other amenities for the area. They are CLEAN, clean, lots of streamlined Ikea style,... More

It's just in those rare cases when we have damage caused to the room. We do appreciate your suggestions and are looking forward to you seeing the improvements upon your next visit!

We stayed at the beach garden for 3 nights and fulls enjoyed our room. It was simple but modern, clean and really big! Highly recommended. Beach is a 5 minutes walk away and some good restaurants as well. Neighbourhood is quiet and there is not much traffic.

Chbrunner, Oasis is a great way to describe Beach Gardens! It's close to the beach but tucked far enough from the main drag, allowing guests to really relax. Offering yoga classes twice a week, it's a perfect hotel for guests who need a little peace and quiet. Thanks so much for your 5-star review, we hope to see you again... More

Just came back from my favorite small hotel in Fort Lauderdale. Beautiful swimming pool with gorgeous mixture of Fan Palms, Majestic Palms and towering fern trees. Bougainvillas at entrance and throughout property. Rooms are squeaky clean. Staff is friendly and helpful, especially Gina and Givenchy. HD TV would make this a Number 1

I stayed here for a business trip to the Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show, and will definitely (hopefully) be booking this hotel for next year's FLIBS. It was a little less that an 20 minute walk to the Bahia Mar center for the show, which was not too bad. The price was very reasonable for the service (which was excellent)... More
