We enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Tropic Seas and were not disappointed with our choice. The hotel/motel is dated but the rooms and grounds were well maintained. Our room that included the cooking facility was clean and bright, nicely decorated (as in the period the hotel dates to). We enjoyed sitting just outside out door and visiting with... More

From the moment we stepped out of our car and were greeted by Eleanor asking if we were ready to check into "paradise", we knew this was going to be a pleasant vacation. The breezeway at the entrance is welcoming, but the view beyond of palm trees, dune grass, beach and ocean really beckon you to enjoy this comfortable resort.... More

We just returned from a wonderful week at Tropic Seas. We had a spacious, comfortable one bedroom apartment, that was clean and pretty. We appreciated all the little touches, beach bags and towels to use, coffee and Danishes each morning, pool toys for the kids. Everything is well cared for and attractive. It is also perfectly located a couple of... More

Having stayed in other hotels in Lauderdale by the Sea, we found this to be the best yet. Congenial host, lovely room, beautiful grounds. As well, the location is close to many restaurants and shopping. We will definitely be back.

This is our 14th year at the the Tropic Seas. Its a great place to relax, feel safe and be catered to by a friendly staff. Each year there are noticeable improvements to the grounds and the individual rooms. The convenience to fine restaurants, a drug store and grocery make this an ideal location. Eleanor Parker and her staff always... More

We just returned from almost a month at Tropic Seas and as usual, it was great. We have been going there for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. Eleanor and Linda really take care of all the guest's needs and are so helpful. Each year there is a little "upgrade" that makes Tropic Seas more enjoyable. Also in... More

Found this hotel by driving past. There are many hotels in that street and we would have been spoiled for choice if there would have been vacancies! This one was almost the only one with a room available and therefore my expectations weren't great. The room was small and to be honest not all that clean. Bed was good and... More

just got back from a stay at Tropic Seas and cant say anything bad. Linda at the front desk was very pleasant and the room was nice with a awesome view of the ocean. It was a very relaxed setting and the bed was comfortable. I was even allowed to keep my car parked there after checkout to be able... More

What a wonderful gem in Lauderdale by the Sea!! The staff is friendly and caring. The hotel is clean and the beds are fabulous. I had to get the name of the pillows and mattress' manufactures to order and have at home. The ocean front view and pool is everything that anyone could ask for. We will be visiting them... More
