This is not your typical hotel but we were comfortable and well cared for. We stayed pre and post cruise. The shuttle service to the airport was good. The shuttle driver was very friendly and helpful. The rooms do need some updating but overall were pretty clean. This hotel does not offer the usual bathroom amenities like shampoo/conditioner but for... More

I have stayed here several times in the last 10 years. It used to be only seafaring mariner's, primarily crew housing and yatch captains and engineers. The back (private) rooms are still nice and private, They feature a fenced mini courtyard and a lot of tropical plants. Most of the kitchenettes are gone. The shared rooms are the best prices...

I wish I could rate this hotel with less than 1 star. The pictures in the web are not even close to reality. For a $100 you can get something much better. The place id dirty. The water heater was inside the closet and had lots of spiral webs. On top of the air conditioning there were spiral webs. The... More

We spent nights at Bridge at Cordova while we were cruising from Ft. Lauderdale in Jan/Feb 2014. The owner and hotel staff were very pleasant. We had to send a letter and the staff took it to a post office! And on once cruise we walked off with the hotel keys. We call the hotel and they said keep them... More

I arrived to the hotel at 1:00am because I came with a late boat from port everglades. Despite the late hour I was checked in without any problems and still with a smile (unlike some other places I've been to...). Overall the hotel is well located, calm and has friendly staff. Rooms looked pretty fine and clean to me. There... More

This hotel was really run down. I can see how it used to be funky, but this was not funny anymore. The one good thing in our room was the bathroom: it was clean and shiny and newish. But the door to the room was crooked and had gaps. The windows were old fashioned glass shutters and could not keep... More

Pretty good place....really could use a bit more attention to details and cleanliness, but not too bad. Pretty dated. Could use a real sprucing up for sure. But very relaxed and friendly place.we would definitely go here agin, as it's very relaxed, a nice pool area, and close to the airport. And very reasonable too.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A Key West experience in Ft Lauderdale.We weekly cater dozens of people coming to the convention center only 8 minutes walking away and people using Port Everglades on their way to cruises who use our property as a bridge; The rooms are spacious with their own bathroom, kitchenette, patio, plasma TV and on top of that breakfast and transportation included. Were are a family small budget hotel with 22 suites with jacuzzi surrounded by 40 restaurants, convenience stores, water taxi, shopping center, all walking distance. The beach is only 8 minutes away by bus, plenty of transportation. Port Everglades is only 4 minutes away and there is a fee of $6.00 per person. It will be a pleasure to prove my word as owner of this property. ... more   less
