4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nice Hotel right on the beach and has nice swimming pool also. Room was good, fine TV and coffee maker and good bathroom. Dined in the restaurant and was very satisfied. All staff found to be very helpful. Just a bit far from the Port and Airport and $39 shuttle one way.

I stayed at Ocean Sky Resort for a business meeting. On the website, the place looks great! In reality, it is at best a motel. The lobby is nice, so the letdown once you have seen the room is significant. It was last updated in the 50s I think. Tiny bathroom, very old furnishings, and a side view of the... More

This hotel holds itself out as a resort but it is certainly not even close. Although it is on the ocean, it is not a " resort". The bathtub was clogged. This occurred on the first shower and all others. The walls are paper thin. We could hear conversation in the room next door.

The Fifth floor was nice. We had a balcony! I think every rm in the hotel had a balcony. YOU COULD WALK TO DUNCAN DONUTS THE GROCERY STORE SO MANY PLACES ARE LOCAL. We walked to the grocery store. Winn Dixie. McDonalds. Waves which is a store to buy beach items. The state store - so much near by.

The room was not small. Every room has a balcony that looks at the ocean. There was a small refrigerator and a microwave. We liked that there was a pool as well as the ocean a few steps down. The fitness center was huge compared to most fitness centers. It had everything we needed. It is a pricey shuttle from... More

We stayed here for a 4-day visit and it was just OK. The location was good -- right on the beach and only 15 minutes from downtown Ft. Lauderdale. The pool area is compact and sets just off the beach. The area is clean and well kept. There is a tiki hut bar next to the pool, but it is... More

We stayed at the Ocean Sky Hotel and Resort for a couple of nights before boarding a cruise at nearby Port Everglades. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived because you never know what to expect when arriving at new places with varying reviews. The front foyer was lovely and staff were very friendly and welcoming. They do charge $15... More

Grounds & lobby nice, pleasant staff, but room was marginal, ours seemed to need better professional updating. (and better lighting) Had one staff member walk in on us to "check new light bulb replacements?" Very apologetic, but a little unnerving for us. The balconies are not private - people smoking pot above us, older gentleman in his underwear beside us... More

Arrived via Jet Blue (great airline), on time and Ace Car Rental was a breeze. Check in was a little slow as the computer was down. Valet service was fast and efficient and with a smile. ($15 per day and $1 or $2 tip got me a God Bless pretty often). Room was clean and the bed slept well. Coffee... More

I am here now - I guess for $200 a night this is what you have to expect in Ft Lauderdale. However for $50 or $60 more a night I could haver stayed at the Pelican and wish I had. I goes it all started with when I entered the room the dresser and table are painted - you know... More
