It was just okay for a last minute getaway. Not very clean, lots of kids and smokers by the pool. The only upside is the convenience of the location to walk everywhere. Very over priced for lack of amenities and cleanliness.

The 3 main reasons why anyone could prefer this hotel, are basically: 1 - It is a cheap hotel, if you consider the same level of hotel at the surroundings, you will realize that this is the cheapest one. The rooms are big, comfortable and well decorated. The furniture is not brand new, but it still is contemporanean. 2 -... More

So convenient with shopping center right next door, Publix grocery store, Chinese restaurant, pizza place, drug store, all the comforts of home! The pool was very clean... More

I've lost track, but I think this is our fourth or fifth winter getaway at the Away Inn, and once again, we had a wonderful vacation. This time, it was a coincidence that the on-site handyman, Earl, was out front when we arrived. After a big hug for me and handshake for my husband, Earl proceeded to help us upstairs... More

For three years in a row, my husband and I have "come home" to the Away Inn during February for a break from the winter in the Northeast and to see my parents. We stayed for 3 weeks, and once again were extremely pleased with our total experience. Although our room has always been immaculate, this time I made a... More

We stayed at the Away Inn based on the good reviews we read here on TripAdvisor. We were very disappointed and wonder how the place has good reviews. The room we were given had a bad odor when we got there. We tried another room but it was the same thing. They claim to have WiFi but it didn't work... More

We stayed at the Away Inn in June and cannot believe the good reviews because it was probably the worst place we've ever stayed. When we checked into our room, the air conditioner was blowing warm air. It took six and a half hours for the man to come and fix it. The manager would not give us another room.... More

Read the good reviews of this hotel so decided to stay here for 5 nights over 4th July Celebrations. We were not disapointed and wished we had booked for longer. This hotel is small and friendly and positioned at the beter quieter end of Fort Lauderdale, where the beaches are quieter and free parking supplied. Unlike Fort Luaderdale where the... More
