You will expect the most from a hotel that is not flashy nor dull! Birch Patio offers the amenities that big hotel has with prices that is better rated than less expensive hotels. The quality of service, room cleanliness, and full kitchen are by far the best rate Birch Patio offers. I stayed for three nights at the suite. The... More

For the price, Birch Patio is *great*: for under $65, you get to stay in a big, clean room that is less than five-minute's-walk to the beach (the rooms have the typical big-white-tile beach-hotel floors). The reading room has a selection of novels in European languages, particularly Finnish, per the ownership ;) The courtyard pool is a clean, LED-lit bean... More

It's a cute little affordable motel. Kind bed with a futon. Beds are firm but still got a great sleep. Super large room. Big fridge, microwave and even plates and utensils! There's also a dining table. TV is small but has so many channels. Shower is dark meaning they could really add a light to that area. No tub, just... More

We just had 4 nights at Birch Patio , on our Southern Florida Holiday. We came by this hotel by chance, just driving around in the neighborhood. We stayed for 4 days, even though we only meant to do 2. Lovely swimming pools, clean rooms and good space for 3 persons, or even 4 . Angela is a extremely friendly... More

Great place with excellent location! Nice little poolarea and just a few minutes to the beach. Basic rooms but very good value for your money. And Angela was really helpful and nice. We had breakfast at the Deckbar closeby.

We stayed at the Motel for four days. Angela was great she let us stay without charging us for 3 extra hours to be able to catch our plane that took off later that night and she let us print off our boarding passes. The place is not the Ritz's or Waldorf Astoria but it is a home away from... More

For a relaxing day or two stay near the beach in Ft. Lauderdale we end up Birch Patio Motel after inquiring about rates at a few other hotels in the area. Located just a few blocks walk from the beach, Birch Patio turns out to be a nice find in a quiet area of Ft. Lauderdale within easy reach of... More
