This was me and my husband and mother's first time here. We love an old style mom and pop motel. Grounds were so well maintained and beautiful to look at. Lots of coconut palms on the property (which were trimmed while we were there and got to stash a couple of nuts away). Definitely stay on the second floor and... More

Stayed here for 9 days while visiting our daughter and her family. We had a convenience room (102) on the ground floor - there are just 17 rooms. It was spacious, if slightly old fashioned, but everything worked. The air-conditioning was quite noisy but we got used to it. There is small pool but there never seemed to be more... More

I loved this old style Florida beachfront "motel". The grounds are beautiful and the ocean view and beach access are perfect. I cannot begin to tell you just how relaxing this place is. The rooms are acceptable for an old building. The beds are extremely comfortable. My only recommendation is to bring a lightweight shawl or scarf to throw over... More

Eleanor, Linda, Emy and the rest of the staff have become like family to us. We actually have tons of family in Ft Laurderdale, but we chose to stay at Tropic... More

This is a nice quaint motel with good service and close to shopping. It's on the beach but a nice walk from all the bars in the center of LBTS. Rooms are clean and Ellenor is extremely helpful. Just a nice place to go and unwind.

This Resort is the ultimate getaway for a laid back relaxing vacation at the beach! The rooms are comfortable, the grounds are beautiful, and only steps from the beach. We request a room with a kitchenette, make a trip to the local supermarket, and spend the week lounging by the pool and playing in the ocean. The town of LBTS... More

I live in Miami and like to have weekend getaways with my kids to Lauderdale by the Sea and other quiet beach towns up and down the Florida coast. Lauderdale by the Sea is one of my favorites. When I booked Tropic Seas Resort I was hoping for the best but not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. I loved... More

There is always somebody on hand to help with any issues that may crop up. The hotel as usual was wonderfully clean with fresh fluffy towels daily. The extra touch providing a beach bag... More
