Stayed at the Lafayette for 4 nights in April in room 230. The hotel is amazing for the price, 1 blocked to a secluded quiet beach off the strip and a short drive to the nightlife of downtown Fort Lauderdale. The staff especially the manager are extremely helpful and will tell you all the cool spots to go. The towels... More

First off there is no view of the beach there is an old hotel right across from the street that blocks the view, why do you think they dont show you any pictures of the view of the beach? Terrible customer service, especially from the guy that works at night there, very rude person and all he seemed to care... More

This is to be avoided, We had a room on the first floor with a kitchenette. It was horrible. The kitchen was grungy. We never cooked a thing and bought only cold food at the WinnDixie. The mattresses were covered in heavy plastic which made for disturbed sleep.The air conditioner was too loud for conversation. The bathroom was despicable with... More

Great Location for the Beach Lover! Only 2 minute walk to the beach, 8 minute walk to Walgreens to get sandwiches and drinks, very nice staff, great shower, air conditioning, pool, picnic area -- on main road for catching taxis to take you where you want to go -- nice neighborhood -- stayed 7 nights -- no complaints

We got caught in a snow storm the day we were suppose to be there. After telling the person that called to remind us about staying I told them it would depend on if we could fly out because there was a big storm heading our way. In the morning we found out our flight was cancelled and I emailed... More

Mixup in our bookings left us with no hotel for a spring break weekend. We booked the last available room with low expectations. The motel is old but clean and well run by a nice efficient staff. Nice pool and just across from the beach. Some other reviews of this place seem a bit shrill and completely at odds with... More

We stayed 1 night in this motel. The room was dirty, noisy and had not been renovated for years. Some towels were missing. Moreover the staff (a man at the reception) was unpleasant and did not seem to care. To be avoided.
