I am new to Florida. I came to Fort Lauderdale beach to escape my busy life. I called over 30 different hotels, motels, etc to find the best deals. Avalon was the only place that didn't give me attitude over the phone. They were helpful, humble, honest and did everything they could to help me save. Once I arrived, Jonathan... More

Most dirty & disgusting place ever! Carpets wet & musty, roaches-roach motels, windows/doors are warped. Extra charge for parking, but don't have enough spots - you park in a lot 3 blocks away @ night

This hotel was in a great location right on the beach. An older hotel, but we weren't concerned. We were wrong! The room had a small kitchen which was a plus, but after seeing several bugs in the room, I was afraid to cook in it. The pool area was nice, but the pool could have used some daily cleaning.

Other than the nice pool area, this place is a dump. You get what you pay for. Our first room had a plugged up tub and when we showered, the water level rose to our ankles. It had towels for 3 but slept 4. When we asked for another room, we were given one with a footprint stained carpet, numerous... More

Any reviews that aren't TERRIBLE are done by hotel staff. We are frequent travelers and I decided to take a chance on this "boutique hotel". Worst room I have ever stayed in. Construction sounded like they were dropping dumpsters off buildings next door. Room so small, you could barely walk around the bed. Wireless internet - none. Tried to get... More
