This motel is excellent if you are cruising out of Ft Lauderdale! We were picked up at airport, short ride! Then we were able to go to nearby shops to get things for the cruise and there were restraunts nearby as well. Breakfast was nice and we were allowed to stay just a little beyond checkout and got a taxi... More

I usually stay at Candlewood Suites right next door. But unfortunately, they were sold out so I came here. My girlfriends and I plan a cruise about every two months, and stay an extra night before returning home. We left booking for the last minute and we love this hotel just as much as Candlewood. Especially when we saw Jose... More

Very nice and clean hotel! Stayed two nights before leaving on a cruise. Took $20 (including tip) cab ride to ft lauderdale beach for the day. Provides free shuttle service from airport. $8 arranged shuttle to cruise ship day of cruise. Workout equipment just ok. Still got a workout - that's what matters. Nice breakfast included!! Good variety of breakfast... More

We stayed here for 4 days before connecting with our cruise. It is less than two miles to the airport and about the same to the cruise ship dock. We arrived at midnight to find the shuttle was not going to appear for one half hour, so we took a cab. The accommodations were very nice, with a comfortable bed,... More

No complaints. We had friendly staff and a nice clean room. We stayed during spring break so the price was pretty high, but it was the one of the best prices around. Would stay again if in the area. The shuttle to the airport is very convenient and runs hourly 24 hrs a day.

It can’t get any more convenient than this hotel for flying in for a cruise. The evening prior to our cruise departure, a complimentary hotel shuttle picked us up outside the airport terminal. Check-in was prompt. The desk clerk added our name, at $8 per person, to the list for morning delivery to the cruise ship via All Stars transportation.... More

We stayed overnight on the way into town for our cruise. The shuttle from the airport is complimentary which helps if you don't want to drag a car seat around. German at the front was very helpful in providing information on local dining options and booking the shuttle service for us. The room was clean and quiet facing the pool... More

Arrived a FLL airport and called hotel for free shuttle ride. Across street from Grocery store, 24 Hr McDonalds and more stores. Note, this is not a "high society" area, it's more commercial not residential, but spacious and nice. Front desk staff was really helpful. Nice too. Great breakfast, 10am-12pm; Sausage, eggs, juice, much much more. 2 miles from Everglades... More
