Very friendly and helpful staff at check in. Even though check in was at another location than my hotel room, I didn't find it negative at all. The atmosphere in my room was so relaxing, so peaceful, just the 'beach style' I love. Great distance to the beach, and I loved that it was so quiet there. I was really... More

A second vacation, the same outstanding service, the cleanliness of the facilities and the great location close to the beach, restaurants, and activities. Our next vacations will definetely will be with North Beach Village, they have so much to offer... Luc, Marie-Claude... More

We got the hotel room for a good price so I can't really say too much. Check in is at a different location, not too far, could walk it if you didn't have a lot of luggage. We did have a lot and they drove us and our luggage over in two vehicles. The hotel itself is just mediocre. You... More

We had a large flat screen TV and good wifi.The room had a safe. Free parking was just outside our room. There was a small pool and sunbathing area. A really great place to... More

We stayed here 2 nights before our cruise as well as 2 nights after our cruise. One company manages 20 small properties and this "hotel" is one of them. There is no office or check in desk here so when we came in by cab from the airport, we had to buzz the intercom by the door and the evening... More

We love this place. 1 ) Google maps address is 533 Orton Ave, Fort Lauderdale. 2) The check in is a small building that manages many small hotels, so don't look for Tara Hotel. Just go in and they will help you. 3) They give you a map to drive to your hotel, about 2 minutes away. 4)The Tara Hotel... More

We have booked this trip through Hotels.com. There was a tiny comment about contacting somebody to check in. So, when we arrived and were looking for a lobby and usual Guest Services, there were none. We were so surprised! This is called a HOTEL! Luckily, I had printed a google map of the surrounding area, and we had to walk... More

The good: no telephone in the room! Excellent wifi and TV. The room itself is great, the bathroom is a little worn out but still really nice and in a nice quiet neighborhood. The main criticism would be the check-in/check-out process. The office is in another property a few blocks away and if you don't have a car you have... More

Let me first say that there were a few positive points about the hotel. The check in guy was great- friendly and extremely helpful. It's also located on a very quiet, residential street with little traffic. Check in is at the Beach Gardens Hotel, a whole block and a half away. This proved to be quite inconvenient, not having an... More
