This is a decent hotel. It is not top quality but you also do not pay for top quality. Well worth the cost. Shuttle service is prompt. Rooms are acceptable. On site restaurant / bar is good. Free breakfast is great.

We were just passing through and the price was right. The room was large and clean but a little bit old, but you could see they were working on it. The bathroom shower was new but the bathroom floor had cracks. The people were nice and the airport shuttle was timely. Would I stay there again probably if I was... More

Chose the Econo Lodge for the free pickup at the cruise terminal and transfer to the airport as we had a early flight the next day. We arrived at the cruise terminal on the 29th of Dec. Had made earlier arrangements to be picked up by the shuttle to the hotel. Shuttle on time, but the ride to the hotel... More

We just used this place for 1 night for a cheap place to avoid a DUI after going out to Wilton Manors nearby. It's a skeevy place. Roaches around the sink, I immediately stripped the bed of the comforter. Yes it is cheap but there are better options. It seems that there are shady people around too. Not a good... More

By far the least expensive "name" branded place I could find the night before heading to Miami Beach, this facility wasn't glamarous, but not so bad. The public bus from Fort Lauderdale Airport (a lower cost alternative to MIA) got me to and from there easily. Traffic is heavy and crowded around the lodge, yet I was able to walk... More

This hotel is right off the street along Federal Hwy. Had a room right across the car wash which was not so great, since it was very loud until the evening. Pool was nice chilly. Room was good size. Good for a transit stay, worth its money, we got it on a coupon rate, which was great!

The rug in our room (#111) was filthy. It didn't look dirty, but if you walked on it in bear feet, the soles of your feet would turn black. Not sure if there is more than one Econo Lodge in Ft Lauderdale, but the address of this one is 2949 N Federal Highway

this hotel was very well equipped with excellent linens and mattresses. Overall, it is a ok place, not 4 star, but very comfortable. Problem that I encountered was the theft of my cell phone. Although the mananger Mr Ali, did mail me the phone when it was "found", I have grave suspicions about the night clerk. When checking in after... More

Cheap place, but I have stayed in other cheap-0's and at least, they were clean. This bathroom had crud in the door jamb, spider webs, you name it. I spilled a coke, and when I wiped it up, the towel was black from the carpet. Mattress was just ok, I have better, and worse. Not a bad part of town... More
