We chose to be close to the cruise port for our stay. This location was a good one for that purpose. Unfortunately, there were not many restaurant choices within a short walk. It was within a reasonable cab ride to shopping (Las Olas Boulevard) and many good restaurants. The complimentary breakfast is nothing to write home about. The eggs were... More

We stayed here before and after a cruise. We came a day ahead of the rest of our party. Shuttle took an hour to pick us up from the airport. Second day we went to pick up my mother in law and even knowing the ropes we still waited an hour for the shuttle. Second day shuttle parked a different... More

While the location of this hotel is excellent, we found the service, meals and general attitude of staff to be very average. The rooms were clean and the tech services (TV, wi-fi) were acceptable but the staff was terse and unhelpful. The breakfast room is much too small for the number of guests and they regularly ran short on food.... More

The room smelled like pets had peed on the carpet for months!!! The air conditioner was set very high and the room was musty. Breakfast was OK, but could have had more fresh fruit selections. Not sure what the area is like at night, but when we arrived it was like we were entering Ft Knox. Also, we had to... More

we wondered where the 'plus' was. Their staff were not very helpful to say the least. The wifi did not work. And the so called breakfast buffet was more chaotic than anything else. The hotel itself is an older type building in dire need of total make over. If you can choose a different hotel!

If you are heading to FLL in the morning, or just don't need to be near ocean (or pay waterfront rates). and want a quiet place, this is a great choice: nice room, free internet, microwave and fridge in room and decent hot breakfast buffet in lobby area ...and free shuttle to FLL. Large shopping strip mall nearby, along with... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times and have yet to have a bad experience. The rooms were always clean and come with nice extras like refrigerator, micro, coffee machine, and free wifi. This last time the towels were a little on the "need to be replaced side" as they were frayed and looking a bit used. I would... More

The staff are friendly and try to be helpful, but the rooms SMELL of bad air freshener, and the floors are very sticky. The noise is constant and included a rattling mini fridge. Not my idea of a relaxing, enjoyable experience at all. I'd skip this place unless a bargain price was simply too good to pass up.

Stayed here 2 days prior to our cruise. It is conveniently located to the cruise port, they offered shuttle service for a small fee, cheaper than a taxi. Next door is a McDonald's for our morning frappes and next to that is a Dunkin' Donuts. There are a few stores there to shop at, excellent Thai restaurant very close in... More

Stayed at this location before our cruise. The staff is the reason that I gave this a very good rating. The hotel is old and very average. The free breakfast was very limited and only had a few items. The staff was very helpful and knowledgable.
