My husband and I stayed at the Beach Gardens Hotel for two nights at the beginning of our one week vacation to Florida and for one night at the end. We stayed in Fort Lauderdale, did some touring there and then drove to the Florida Keys. There was some outside work being done when we arrived. Interlocking brick was being... More

Hotel is about three blocks from the beach. Room was nicely renovated, Staff was very helpful. There is a small pool that was difficult to get a lounge chair at due to its popularity. I would stay hre again in one of the back rooms on the property.

We find it a bit difficult to review the Beach Gardens Hotel because of their unconventional approach to operating a hotel. If having the front desk immediately available to you simply by picking up your room phone and dialing zero, then this hotel may not be the place for you. None of the rooms have a phone. In order to... More

Overnight stay here to get to the airport. Wish I had the opportunity to stay longer. It was very peaceful and quiet. The only issue I had was making sure to return the room key since we checked out so early at 4:30 for the flight. The king bed was amazing. Very spacious rooms, too. I will definitely have to...

Arrived a few hours before check in. Friendly staff allowed us to store our 4 big bags in the office. We walked a couple blocks the beach and ate at a nearby restaurant. After eating and walking along the beach our room was ready at 3pm. Rooms are clean and tidy. Nothing fancy. No pictures on the wall and no... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. We usually don't stay at this type of hotel but it got good reviews so we thought why not try. From the outside we were a bit disappointed. However once we met the staff we felt more comfortable with our decision. They went out of their way to give us a room with a... More

My boyfriend and I had to return back from the airport due to a mess spirit airlines caused and we couldn't fly at 10pm, so we had to find a budget hotel for the night and we found this gem! It's great value for money, staff very friendly, specifically Gee he was very understanding, helpful and professional. The rooms are... More

Staying here currently. Room promised at 3 PM per reservation agreement, however, after our 5 hour drive we arrived early, hoping to get in 45 min early, but we understood when we couldn't. Drove around in crazy traffic and stalled, returned just after 3, told we needed to wait another 20 minutes or so. We were understandably frustrated, and received... More

Jimkari, We're very sorry to hear about your experience. You are absolutely right. A 3pm check in should be honored, and we apologize. This is not the norm, and we hope that you'll give us another chance. We know we can do better! More

As others have stated, this is an ideal property for budget-minded travellers who appreciate courteous service and ultra-clean accomoodations. We stayed one night post-cruise, and found this property to be great in terms of proximity to the beach and restaurants. Pool is not heated, but we were advised we could use the heated poool at a nearby sister property if... More

Great hotel for the price. Anthony the Manger was excellent, very helpful and friendly. Anthony help accommodate my travel needs at no additional charge. Lots of lizards though. Very close to beach, walking distance
