The price was good for the area though I would have thought that the bed would have been better. Very Springy is a nice way to put it. The room smelled musty, would be nice if they kept the air conditioners running. I thought it was just because it was closed up but after several hours the smell was still... More

Not very exciting. It caters to all kinds of people. If the price is right, it's a place to stay for the night. There are so many hotels/motels in the area this should not be your first choice. There are restaurants nearby to find a good meal.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE We arrived late due to a late flight into Ft Lauderdale. We had a reservation already with Econo Lodge. When we were told where our room was we had to walk into a open backside area. There were several people hanging outside and had their doors open and were watching us. There was barely any... More

Filled with all sorts of characters but brutally charming, to say the least. The pool and the outside were spotless and once you confronted the lamps and television control which broke and were repaired immediately thereafter by the friendly staff, I began to feel right at home. A group of beer guzzling honduran gentlemen were quite friendly and garrulous, as... More

This place was downright scary! Despite the reviews, I got a good rate and just needed to crash for a night, so I decided I could endure a few hours here. Well, I regret that decision for sure. It wasn't the hotel itself, although it too is a little gross, but the area is just scary. My plane arrived late... More

I was hoping the directions to the hotel were wrong as we pulled up to what turned out to be the Econolodge. The main building appeared to have damage to the roof, and it fit into the neighborhood - run down and with bars over the windows. We arrived to find that Priceline had defaulted our reservation to a smoking... More

Stayed here for a couple days during the Miami Boat Show. Pleasantly surprised with a neat, clean economy motel. Most rooms available are poolside which made for a nice social gathering place. Staff courteous (I believe most were family members), and very helpful. Within walking distance of local diner ( great breakfast) and convenience store and only a short drive... More

We just needed a place to sleep, arriving late evening before our cruise. It is relatively close to FLL...but I would only stay here as a last resort. The desk clerk was less-than enthusiastic checking us in; the room standard motel faire, the bathroom incredibly small. Unsavory area of town. When I lifted the mattress, there were blood stains on... More

I found three bed bugs in my room and I wasn't even looking for them, they were crawling on the walls. The guy at the desk didn't even apologize, he acted like I was lying till I showed him. They refunded my room, but I had to get another hotel in the middle of the night. The pool had trash... More
