This was a terrific find. We stayed here the night before our cruise. The hotel shuttle picked us up at the airport. Our room was ready upon arrival. The room was just perfect. Breakfast in the morning was simple but adequate - yogurt, bananas, cereals and some hot dishes. Staff was very nice. We were going to take a taxi... More

The hotel is close to the cruise port, with a complimentary shuttle to/from airport and an $8 shuttle to the cruise port. The hotel is older but clean, the carpet could use a little attention. Erica was fantastic. She was both helpful and friendly. She made the difference from a 3 star to a 4 star rating. Also, there is... More

What made this stay so very good was the person we dealt with at check in. Her name is Shonda and she was awesome. Later in the evening we had to print out boarding passes and she help us with getting that done. As far as the hotel goes, that's another story. It's an older hotel with problems. To start,the...

We used this hotel as our choice for pre-cruise accommodation. We were not disappointed with the Best Western Fort Lauderdale Airport/cruise port. The front desk personnel, particularly Erica, were a pleasure to work with. We got good advice about public transportation and check-out and check-in went very smoothly. Cab fares to both the airport and cruise terminal are very reasonable.... More

I had to come to Fort Lauderdale for a family emergency. I had not made reservations in advance and figured that I would just find a place close to the hospital once I got there. The Best Western was the first place I found. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The front desk staff was very polite and... More

This hotel was an excellent choice for out stay before a cruise. The front desk personnel were very helpful, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good. Shonda at the front desk found us a church to attend, gave us shopping tips and arranged for our shuttle to the airport. Great place to stay before or after a... More

We stayed just 1 night on way to cruise. Everything was excellent. Free shuttle from airport went well. Inexpensive shuttle to cruise ship but taxi would have been just as cheap or cheaper. The hotel was fine.

We made the reservation here as it was close to the cruise port, and offered a shuttle. I expected it to be a bit old and worn, but since we only needed a clean bed for one night, I thought the lower price was a reasonable trade off. The first impression walking into the lobby was that it was well... More
