My friend and I had planned to try Blue Seas this month. Unfortunately she could not make it and I decided to go alone and I am so good I did. After arriving I was reminded that I have not stayed in a Motel since a child. In less than 12 hours I realized this is "Not your mothers motel".... More

This was our fourth year at Blue Seas Courtyard and as expected the best place to stay. The additions of the organic bath products was such a nice treat. Christie and Marc are always extending themselves to make you stay so pleasant. Gary, their manager burns up miles of shoe leather to keep the place running like a well oiled... More

This is the most adorable property in the area! Christie and Mark and Greg are so nice and accommodating - they made our stay that much more pleasant! We were originally notified that we would spend the first night in one room and then move to another, which was fine with us. The first room (#8 on the ground floor)... More

We have been staying here for about 5 years. We stay for about two weeks at Christmas. This is so very lovely, especially during the holidays when it is decorated with gorgeous outdoor lighting. The BSC is across the street from the beach, so the location cannot be beat. You are within a short walking distance of many restaurants, a... More

Very cozy and very clean, the maid service was great, always came back to a clean and tidy room. All in all a great place to stay. The lighting and décor is really very warm and inviting. We stayed in Unit 11 for a week, this was upstairs, which is a little more private than the units right by the... More

We managed to get a room here at the last minute due to a cancellation. How lucky for us! The place was everything we wanted and needed. VERY clean, nice staff and convenient to the beach, restaurants and food shopping. We did not need to rent a car and was able to get plenty of exercise walking. I highly recommend... More

My husband and I love this quaint charming accomodation. The service and ambiance is very special. Christie, the owner has artistic decor in every landscaped nook. The art glass lighting is so unique. Our efficiency provided all our needs.

The owners are fantastic and made us feel very welcome. The Motel has a very relaxed warm feel to it and has been beautifully renovated and decorated as a Mexican Hacienda. Our Poolside room was beautiful, super clean with a comfy bed. Wish we could have stayed longer.

My husband and I have been going to Ft. Lauderdale to see my in-laws for Thanksgiving every year for 14 years, and this was, without a doubt, our best trip. This l2-room hotel was so clean and charming that I was able to totally relax. I'm a clean freak, and usually one on my first things I tend to do... More

Just passing through Lauderdale for a couple of days and decided to return to Blue Seas Courtyard. The owners (Cristie and Mark) were as friendly and welcoming as the last visit. Still a charming and cute property. Clean rooms with lots of amenities. Love the extra hooks in the rooms. Like that they added safes in each room. Would recommend... More
