The owner gave us a room at 1130pm when our other hotel lost AC, in the midst of traveling 1700 miles home the next morning we took whatever was available for 6 hours of sleep. Small, efficiency room, clean with great staff. Could use some fixing up where the AC is in the room. Free breakfast and close to the... More

Quiet room and very comfortable bed 2 minutes from the airport. Friendly staff and 24 hour check in for late arrival. $11.50 for the taxi from arrivals but only $6 to return to the airport using Uber. No restaurant but lots of take away food available nearby.

Basic, clean but rather run down little motel with a handful of rooms around a little courtyard. Pleasant staff, very basic breakfast, and the pool was not open because the pool guy was on vacation. I paid $156 after tax ($144 before). I might expect to pay $99 for this room.

Nice, clean and relatively cheap. They DO charge to keep your car during your trip AND you have to get a cab to the airport - unlike the free ride mentioned in other posts. So I parked next door at Gold Coast. The room was spotless and the hotel was quiet. Overall, I enjoyed my stay. El Tamarindo restaurant is... More

If your looking for the Ritz Carlton this is NOT IT! But, if you want a nice, quaint, homely, Nostalgic, awesome room with a wonderful staff servicing you then THIS IS THE PLACE :) If your coming to South Florida (near Miami) I implore you to take a gander at this motel right by all the Lauderdale/Dania/Hollwood beaches which is...

This is a basic room with a shower and a bed, don't expect more then that. Wi-fi is so slow, There is breakfast but it is almost funny, but there some things. But do you need a cheap room for one maybe to nights it is okay.

we were certainly surprised. We paid $179 for one night and expected the Ritz Carlton. I know prices are high in Fort Lauderdale but I didn't expect this. This is a very old motel with very few rooms. Although it was clean the room needed some updating, especially the bed. We both kept rolling into the center of the mattress.... More

We stayed here for one night before going on a cruise. Room was small / basic, but clean. The free wi-fi, fridge, and pool area were nice to have. The front desk staff was great - extremely accommodating and helped us to resolve a couple of issues that came up during the trip.
