Nice and comfortable place with good breakfast. Good location and great service from the owner of the place. Easy to find and located in a quiet area. We would stay there again next time we visit Fort Lauderdale.

My girlfriend and I went to Ft. Lauderdale from Orlando, and really enjoyed the stay. Walt was very friendly and helpful, the place was quiet, relaxing, European feel, no kids, and tucked away with some landscaping that separated us from the rest of the world. We were on the pool side and really enjoyed the view. Check in and out... More

I had no idea when I booked this place that it would be so delightful. We were so pleased. The owners do an amazing job keeping the property clean and well-kept. They even put swim towels out for our use. So nice. We really enjoyed it.

Had a lovely 2 night stay here, thought the room was great, really felt at home. Enjoyed our breakfast, thought that there was plenty of choice, coffee was really good. Liked the pool area, nice and secluded. About a twenty minute walk ot ten minute drive to the gorgeous beach, and las olas boulevard. Hope to return here next year.

Thank you for the lovely review. It's funny because you were here the same time as the British guy who wrote the not so good review before yours. It's amazing to me how people can be so totally different about a property. In any case I very much enjoyed our conversations and you will be my two favorite Scottish guests.... More

Was just average really, nothing of great merit, nothing really awful either. Luckily I got a good rate, in my opinion it is not worth the full rate. Car necessary for the location, but the parking arrangements not good. It is easy to be blocked in and without knocking on doors to find the blocking owner is a hassle.

Unfortunately our guests aren't always " EXCEPTIONAL" as was the case with you. You were a very rude guest to staff and others staying at the hotel. You won't be welcome back full price or summer discounted ! More

Great location, nice and clean room and very helpful owner. I have seen some comments about the breakfast being little choice. I thought there was plenty of choice If i were to go back to Miami, I would definitely consider going back here again!

Sir, Thank you for the nice review of the 15 FTL Hotel property and letting others know about your travel experience. The breakfast served at the hotel is known as an expanded Cont breakfast. The owners believe some travelers get confused about the type of breakfast expected. The property is limited to what it may serve by Florida health laws.... More
