We stayed at the beach garden for 3 nights and fulls enjoyed our room. It was simple but modern, clean and really big! Highly recommended. Beach is a 5 minutes walk away and some good restaurants as well. Neighbourhood is quiet and there is not much traffic.

Chbrunner, Oasis is a great way to describe Beach Gardens! It's close to the beach but tucked far enough from the main drag, allowing guests to really relax. Offering yoga classes twice a week, it's a perfect hotel for guests who need a little peace and quiet. Thanks so much for your 5-star review, we hope to see you again... More

Just came back from my favorite small hotel in Fort Lauderdale. Beautiful swimming pool with gorgeous mixture of Fan Palms, Majestic Palms and towering fern trees. Bougainvillas at entrance and throughout property. Rooms are squeaky clean. Staff is friendly and helpful, especially Gina and Givenchy. HD TV would make this a Number 1

I stayed here for a business trip to the Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show, and will definitely (hopefully) be booking this hotel for next year's FLIBS. It was a little less that an 20 minute walk to the Bahia Mar center for the show, which was not too bad. The price was very reasonable for the service (which was excellent)... More

We love Beach Gardens! Why? Their prices. Their cleanliness. Their staff. Who doesn't love a good bargain? We love to stay in one of their suites with a living room, bedroom, and kitchenette. The price is cheaper than an efficiency in a hotel chain. And the atmosphere is so tropical. The grounds are landscaped beautifully. The pool is lovely. It... More

I would like to say Beach Gardens is better than Hilton or Westin, because it has a beautiful garden. Although Fort Lauderdale is a beautiful city, it does not have many trees. But in Beach Gardens you can have a close relationship with nature. On the second day during my stay there, I found my up stairs neighbours are very... More

梦夏 张, Thanks so much for your review. You're absolutely right, the trees, gardens and large amount of open grassy areas are hard to find in Ft. Lauderdale.

The service manager David White is very friendly. He told me how to go to those nearby shopping malls, where the yoga course is, and showed me how to use my room. Very useful information. I will go to Beach place tomorrow to get my tooth paste and some vegetables. The position is good, too. It is near the sea... More

Staff was awesome, from the office/front desk to the housekeeping crew! Very convenient location to the beach, with a nice, clean pool, and well landscaped grounds. Little nooks and crannies around the property add to the allure - there are lots of places to sit and relax and enjoy the Florida weather and the outdoors. Rooms are spacious and clean... More
