Beach Gardens was exactly what I needed for a Fort Lauderdale weekend trip. It was close to the site of my course, was clean and quiet. There is a pool, wish I had had time to get in. The rooms are not tricked out, but I wasn't looking for that. Kimberly at the office was very helpful, even when I... More

You can't beat the price for a hotel this close to the beach. It's clean and cozy. An older hotel that was recently renovated, it works well as a base of operations for trips to the beach. The only amenities are a pool and free WiFi. There is a barbecue for those who need it. If you do stay, be... More

We've booked our stay here some 2 months in advance. The price was good, very good if you take into account the fact that the hotel is located some 500 meters from the beach in Ft Lauderdale. No breakfast, but a microwave and coffee machine in the room, which was big with two queen sized beds and a perfect air... More

I stayed at the Beach Gardens in mid-May for four nights and it was a delightful experience from start to finish. I chose a smaller hotel because I wanted something different from the big-chain, impersonal transactions, and these folks delivered. I arrived after midnight and Jeffrey greeted me with warmth and kindness, showed me to my room, #500, and made... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights during the Tortuga Music Festival. Rates were very reasonable. Arrived at noon and were able to check in early. We had a king studio. Very clean and quiet. One of the young ladies served us frozen grapes while we were lounging at the pool. No restaurant or bar on site, but... More

Cheri582014, It's always nice to hear from a local. Thanks for staying with us, and we hope that you'll come back again soon. We work hard to provide the most competitive rates in the area. Right now it's slow season so our rates cannot be beat! It's the perfect time to treat yourself to a weekend getaway! More

Booked this hotel for a night before and after our cruise. As a previous poster mentioned, if you are expecting high class don't book here. The rooms were clean. They allowed us to stow our luggage and change clothes since we arrived before the rooms were ready. Our most frustrating thing was that we had booked one room for 4... More

We stayed here for a week in early May and were very happy with our choice. Looks like it was recently renovated, looks good with simple, clean modern furnishings. Small micro & fridge were a nice additions to the room. Shower was a good size, clean, very good pressure-nice towels & had plenty. Bed was comfy. But the room is... More

If you like high class this place is not for you. If you want a nice clean place close to the beach this is it. I agree with the people that said the walls were thin but we did not have any problems. Only complaint: People were smoking by the pool and flicking the ashes where ever. We are non... More
