Being at Beach Gardens many times, we had been surprised this year to hear music near the pool of this so quiet garden we were used to. Thanks to Steven at whom we talked about that we had a prompt answer, and no more music, so that guests can listen to their own music with earrings within their time and... More

I recently stayed at Beach Gardens and had a negative experience due to certain inconsiderate/loud guests. I raised this concern to North Beach Village Resort management and they were very responsive. They moved me to a quieter unit and assured me that they would focus on maintaining quiet hours through education of incoming guests and additional staff coaching. I have... More

This hotel is in a great location, close to the beach but quiet neighbourhood. I suggest asking for the top floor as you can hear noise from above if on the first floor. Staff was friendly. Not high end but good value for your dollar. Clean and great location.

Just came back from Fort Lauderdale where I stayed a week with my family at the Beach Gardens Hotel. The place has its pros and cons as I'll list my impressions. Pros Check in and out was fast.

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...
