Beach Gardens Hotel was very basic and clean. Price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area so good value. Location is great. Fort Lauderdale Beach is only a five to ten minute walk. Great restaurants within walking distance. The pool was not heated. No one used it this time of year. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Best thing... More

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel, which is part of the North Beach Village, and had an amazing time. After some confusion with our room, their rep, Chun, immediately accommodated us with an upgrade that was just perfect. His professionalism and care was a reminder of a much more expensive resort where customer service is a priority. Each... More

Very, very thin walls and floors - you can literally hear EVERYTHING from your fellow guests. Shame they didn't sound proof better, even if it means making the rooms slightly smaller. Pool needs more regular cleaning out. However, a great location and nicely presented inside the two rooms we had over two short stays. Modern decor, though a little too... More

We recently recommended family and friends to stay at this hotel since it is close to my home. Let me tell you this place is immaculated, WHY? Because one employee can make a difference big times. We (siblings) had several requests to accommodate our needs during our fabulous vacation in FLL. Mr. Gonley is proactive, he knows well how the... More

This was perfect for staying in the area and not getting taken advantage of ice the last hotel in the area. Rooms were clean, had a kitchen and quiet It's not a big hotel with a fancy pool but very relaxing. The WiFi needs some work, kept dropping off and the office help was below average but after checking in... More

The property was very well maintained. It was a great stay. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone to stay at this property when they are visiting Fort Lauderdale Beach. I wish I could have stayed longer at this property, it was only a 5 minute walk to the beach. You will LOVE this place.

We have stayed here before and as with this last visit we've decided to stay elsewhere. Staff are okay and do their best under the conditions they work in. The rooms are all Ikea furniture and they don't stand up to the commercial uses like a hotel (nor are they designed to) Which is why it's a 3 star motel.... More

First the positive, the hotel is only a couple of blocks from the beach. The walls between the rooms are VERY thin so expect to hear and be heard. The windows need sheer curtains as well as the blinds to provide some feeling of privacy. Bathroom windows should not be clear glass. There are no facilities for you to make... More

This hotel is described as "vintage boutique". I would stress the "vintage". When checking in we were told hat we were staying in the newly renovated rooms. The renovations include new floors & resurfaced tile in the bath (that was pealing). The pool was not clean and was not completely full. There is laundry and ice however there is no... More

Excellent value for money. We paid less than $100 for four people in one room. Clean and pretty new. Short walk to the beach and they also have a small pool. We stayed one night in this quiet place. Friendly and helpful staff that let us stay by the pool after check-out as our plane out left late.
