5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Arrived very late but after just a few minutes wait the manager came from another building to check us in and made us feel very welcome. Large room, super comfy bed, fridge and coffe maker - everything needed for an overnight stay! Nice pool and a short walk to the beach and restaurants/bars/shops.

My husband and I travel to Florida quite a bit, and have stayed at many hotels in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami over the years, but I have to say, this hotel is a true gem - our favorite to date, and the staff is beyond exceptional! Upon Arrival, which was later in the evening, Richard O'Conner greeted us, and was... More

marisa1123, Wow, what a nice review! Thanks so much for the positive feedback. It means a lot, especially coming from such seasoned travelers. You're right, a big perk to staying in a NBV property is that guests can take advantage of all of the hotel amenities in the collection. Let us know next time you're visiting and we'll give you...

Originally booked Tara last minute deal online.

Perfect located in Fll and 2 min walk from the beach. The room was clean and very nice with a kitchen for cooking.

Ulla H, Your review was spot on, thanks! Beach Gardens is a great hotel, located just blocks from the beach but as you mentioned, far enough away that guests can escape from the noise of the main drag. We appreciate your recommendation and hope that you can come back and visit us again soon! Thanks so much for staying with... 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

Max1650, It's always nice to hear from a local. You should check out the other events around the Village. We have Village Yoga right at Beach Gardens 3 times per week. Our outdoor cafe, the Plaza Bistro, offers weekend entertainment and even a weekly "Yappy Hour" for our 4-legged guests! We hope to see you again very soon! More
