Had a bad feeling as soon as I pulled up to the door. This is not a hotel, it is an overpriced hostel…an absolute dump if I’m honest. I cannot understand how this place has ever received any positive reviews. I am not one to complain normally, but I was genuinely scared staying here. It is filthy and unsafe. We... More

As having read the reviews I wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. I asked for a room with balcom=ny and was given one. Although the hall ways and the rooms were a bit torn down the location is perfect, the rooms are spacy and the staff very friendly and helpful. Trolly stops at the hotel entrance and the beach...

This motel is a bit further south from the hustle and bustle on a quiet street but only a short walk to the beach and any needed services! The woman at the front desk was extremely helpful at our arrival and departure from the motel and even watched our bags as we awaited check-in or our departing flight. Our room... More

The guest booked a room with us in March 2013 for arrival in February 2014. They reserved a room with 2 beds, for 4 guests, for 7 nights. They stayed all 7 nights & the night before they checked out, they complained to the desk clerk that they found a roach in their room, after 6 days. They checked out... More

This little motel near the beach, is reminiscent of the 70s motels in the area. The rooms are clean and comfortable enough, but they could use some updating. There is a nice little garden area with small pool deck and you can walk a few blocks up A1A to the beach. For us it was a place to stay overnight.... More

Over all it was a good stay. Room was clean and was able to check in early. Staff was friendly. It's is dated and no it's not spectacular but for $70 and one night it's good. Would stay again for my next cruise. Also stop at Bahia cabana down the street for fish tacos. Amazing!!!

Ft Lauderdale during cruise seasn (jan-feb) is very pricey. Sea Beach is more reasonably priced while still close to the airport, port and beach. We stayed 1 night in a 1 bedroom with a king bed. The suite was clean although "old", the bed was comfortable, the towels quite thin. The shuttle to the port at $6 pp the next... More

After reading the mixed reviews, I was a little reluctant to stay. However, my wife and I took the chance and were pleasantly surprised. Sure, the hotel could use some updating, but the rooms were clean. The bathroom had just been cleaned since we could still smell the cleaning products. The beds were soft and the tv and phone worked... More

My father and I stayed at the Sea Beach Plaza for a week. I was surprised at some of the poor ratings this little hotel has received. Yes, it is a little old and worn, but everything was very clean. The hotel staff was always available, very helpful and friendly. We could see that they were working on repairs in... More
