We stayed for one night only and we were totally pleased with what we got - a standard 2 double beds room. The room was clean, the bathroom, recently updated was great and the balcony was convenient to air dry towels and bathing suits. You also get a partial view of the ocean. Location is perfect in that you are... More

This hotel wasnt good but wasnt bad. Friendly hotel staff for check in, but $15 per day for SELF parking and sometimes the lot fills up and you have to park across the street. :( Lobby is nice but the elevators are a bit scary. The shake and rattle too much for comfort. Room was clean but dated. Did like... More

Thank you for the nice comments on friendly check in and cleanliness. $15 to park is actually a very good value on the beach compared to the area. I am surprised to hear about the wireless access. We hope to see you again. Best Regards, Paul Cahaly General Manager More

Stayed here in July for a girl's weekend trip. The room was nice. The breakfast at the restaurant was pretty good. Nothing fancy, just some omelettes on the menu. The staff was friendly. The concierge helped us book a swamp tour, decently priced. Would stay there again if in the area.

This is a smaller but nicely located hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, right on the beach. The rooms are small and outdated but very clean with comfortable beds. I have read some complaints about the size of the rooms, but if you are in Florida you probably aren't there to sit in your room anyway! I stayed on the 9th floor... More

Lovely clean rooms, shame our room didn't have a view or decent balcony however as we were only staying a few nights it wasn't a problem as the location for the beach was great and made up for it. Free towels for the pool or beach was very handy for a family of five too. We didn't eat at the... More

The hotel has seen better days. The first impression, after getting off the elevator was terrible. The hallways were dark and dingy, with black trim around the doors that looked like it had been painted over dozens of times. The rooms were average. The one upholstered chair was so dirty I wouldn't even put my suitcase on it. The dresser... More

Sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. Surprised to read about the hallways as they were completely redone recently and really look sharp. We hope that you reconsider and give us another opportunity. Paul Cahaly General Manager More

Were guests during my high school 50th reunion. Check-in was pleasant & easy. Room was average and kept clean (although the number of towels left by the cleaning staff varied daily). Some of the most noticeable problems: (1) WiFi connected easily but rarely had any detectable speed [speedtest gave me a range of 0.25 to 0.44 Mbps; minimal DSL is... More

Great spot on the beach, close to stores, restaurants and Lauderdale by the Sea, nice place to wander around. Check in was easy but be aware that at check out, it could be cruise departure time so the line can get quite long. The valet parking works but you have to pay the $15 a day to park so add... More
