The hotel is named properly. It is a two block from the beaches and handsomely landscaped. My companion and I found the newly rennovated rooms comfortable and clean. The kitchenette was a welcomed surprise. The value was good considering the high prices of lodging in Ft. Lauderdale. The company that manages this property has at least a dozen properties they...

We arrived early but our room wasn't ready until 2.00. However we were able to relax by the pool. Lovely clean rooms with good air conditioning and mini kitchenette so you can bring your own food and drink in. Very pleasant and helpful staff who let us have a late check out ($35 extra). Good location for beach and nice... More

The hotel is located in a place just a couple blocks from the beach. Nice to walk there. The property was spotless as was the room. Not a very good mattress. Good air conditioning. Good Wi-Fi. Nice kitchenette. Would consider it again. Good value.

Although I love this neighbourhood and have stayed in it before, the street appeal of this property is not that great and I thought oh oh - but it was good - clean, reasonable price, quiet, good staff - nothing fancy but a great little place. I don't understand the pricing in this area as they are all the same... More

What a sweet little gem of a property! This boutique motel is one of many properties owned and operated by a the North Beach Village (NBV) Group. My guess is they bought up a bunch of dilapidated art deco motels and flipped them into a modern sleek look while maintaining the orginal charming features from their glory days. I have... More

Arrived early (not an issue) and was told that we can check in at 3 pm. Room was not ready at 3 pm and was told to wait for cleaner. Still not in room by 5 pm. They did end up switching us into another room, which is to their favour. Didn't like the beds though - pillows too high!... More

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

James K, We made a mistake, and we are very sorry. Our website had incorrect information about the pool and has been updated. While we have a beautiful outdoor pool, it is not heated. However, we do have laundry facilities and ice machines on site. There was a fire in the laundry room so it was temporarily out of commission.... 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.
