After getting snowed out of our flights home, we stumbled upon Florida Beach Hotel in Lauderdale By the Sea. What a true blessing. The desk and office staff shuffled some things around and got us 5 rooms, peak season. Great price. Then, we met Summer, Megan, Andrew and the rest of the crew at The Tiki Bar. Oh boy. We... More

Don't get me wrong the hotel was alright. Rooms could have been more up to date, but the view was amazing!!!! Right on the beach with an amazing bar staff. Ted made us feel so welcomed and at home that me and friends did not want to leave!

The ocean is amazing! Just breathtaking. Unfortunately the hotel is closing the end of this month and my family won't be able to enjoy the beach anymore. I hope they don't Change it to much. Prices are awesome and front desk Kionia was really sweet. Hope it's a speedy renovation.

It's hard to believe that I've never before stayed in Lauderdale By-the-Sea having lived in South Florida my whole life (I'm 22) and having stayed in easily probably a couple dozen SoFlo hotels. We stayed at Florida Beach Hotel which was supposedly bought out and is literally days away from starting renovations & transitioning for the new ownership. Long story... More
