Stayed here for two nights while we visited the Ft Lauderdale/Miami area. Hotel offered a clean, comfortable room, an above average fitness room, and a decent sized pool. All areas of this hotel appear well maintained. All employees were very knowledgable and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Totally redone... Rooms are spacious, breakfast was perfect and the staff could not be friendlier. I recommend upgrading to a suite as It is worth every penny.

Odd location and, from my observation while driving around to find a market, the neighborhood is even tacky. The Internet access is terribly slow and the room is a standard Holliday Inn Express; no thrill no frills. I’ve stayed here just as an overnight stop on my way to Key West, so it was OK. I most definitively don’t recommend... More

This is a great option for those at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, especially for pilots, because they give us some discount and you can use Benyan FBO transfer, it takes about 5 minutes trip. I recommend and I will consider to stay there next time.

This hotel was so nice! The rooms were so clean, they were like new. The staff was friendly & attentive. We stayed here to facilitate our 7:00 am flight out of Ft. Lauderdale and I was not disappointed in any way. Free parking & morning breakfast, and only a few minutes drive from the airport. Totally exceeded my expectations!
