While it was a little difficult to find the hotel the first time around, we not only stayed there the one night on the way down but once more on the way back. Both times Lori, one of the two people who run the place most of the time, was one of the nicest people I've dealt with in all... More

We were here for an overnight stopover before boarding our cruise in Ft Lauderdale. I'd booked the hotel through is website. I want to say at the outset that we have travelled extensively -- this particular stopover was at the beginning of a two month trip ithrough South America, during which we encountered nothing that even remotely compared to the...

This is a perfect budget pre-cruise choice. Don't be scared by previous reviews, but do be realistic about your expectations. If you really want great dining, walks on the beach, shopping, and a Fort Lauderdale experience, this may not be your best choice. But if you're budget minded and have a rental car, it's perfect. The owner Chris, and his... More

America’s Best Inn by the Airport in Ft. Lauderdale a nicely renovated 1950’s style single story motel (I took several photos inside and out but they would not upload into Tripadvisor site without jumping through hoops, sorry) about a mile north of the FLL airport, on the way to the cruise port (the 24th Street cruise port entrance is a...

The hotel is very cute, offers a small breakfast and we were offered a free beverage of our choice when we checked in. We also came up to their Happy Hour and meet some interesting people from aound the world. It was right by the airport, so when we had to get up at 5am and get to our flight,... More

I have never in all my life been to a more disgusting hotel in my life. It is far from it's name sake. The bathroom shower had mold and the floor was coming undone. There were stains on the carpet and marks and badly patched holes on the walls. The mattresses were so used that comfort would not be an... More

Have stayed at this motel several times. Nothing great at all but convenient to the airport. Last visit had things stolen. Never again. Not worth the convenience.

I travel very often and was very weary when I booked this motel but the reviews made me give it a chance. The America's Best Inn - Fort Lauderdale Airport is a one of the best motels I have stayed in. My daughter and I arrived at 1030pm and were greeted with a smile and 2 bottles of water (which...

We were locked in to stay one night because by the time we got there it was too late to cancel (needed 24hrs because I booked on the internet - now I know why). There was a frog in our room when we got there and the room wasn't even ready. This hotel room made us want to keep our... More
