Cheap? No $550wk,not cheap, I'm completely disgusted, attached are some pics of the mold growing in the shower, the cookware they expect you to use when paying a lot more for a kitchenette. Don't even want to guess what the stains on the walls were and the roaches just take over and they are not afraid of the day light.

This property was good for the price. I would not want to stay here for more than a couple of days, but great overnight stay before going to the cruise terminal. They have a nice pool in the front that was inviting and great little tables with chairs outside of each room. The pillows are flat and lumpy. We called... More

We paid about $56/night in Nov. 2015, and it's worth that price. If you can't get it for near that then I suggest you go elsewhere. It's in a great location, and they tore down all the buildings between it and the ocean, though that's sure to change in the future. My room didn't have any mold or disgusting features,... More

We truly enjoyed our stay here of 7 days. We sought economical lodgings in FLL. We had a GREAT view of the ocean from the 3rd floor. The air conditioning worked well. Matter of fact, a couple of nights, we should have turned it down as we woke up cold. Oh well. Coffee was ready in the morning, and we... More

Accomodations a little bit old but rates are fare. Very close to the beach. We were guests of the Lafayette Motel from 14 to 21 Sep 2015, Room 308. We would like to make a positive comment about the Motel's staff, specially about Mr. Sanjay. He was very friendly with our requests during our stay. He gave us very nice... More

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
