Our room was beautiful, very spacious and with everything I needed.The cozy hotel is decorated very nice with a lot of plants and the pool has a regular size. What I loved most was that it was so close to the beach, les than 1/2 a block... More

Clean, friendly, accomodating. Lovely accomodations in true Lauderdale by the Sea style. Here now and enjoying the wonderful tropical plants! Took me all of 90 seconds to walk to the beach! Booked a basic hotel room for one and was surprised to find a fridge and coffee pot!! A five minute walk to the supermarket and now stocked with water,... More

Just spent 2 nights at this little gem. I feel as if the staff there are our new friends! They couldn't have been more accommodating. Our 1 bedroom apartment was ready early and we were able to check in early. The room had been recently updated with new furniture and beds and was spotless. Flat screen TV's in both the... More

We reserved this hotel because of the great reviews here on trip advisor, but as someone stated below, I disagree with most of them. First, the actual name is "Best Florida Motel", and as far as resort versus motel, it certainly falls into the cheap motel category. It is not right on the beach as they claim, and they must...

Set back from a busy street protected from noise by the trees & fencing, this sweet hideaway was perfect. Small shaded courtyard with flowers & trees and a pool. Attractive room decked in bamboo furnishings with nice colors. Very friendly manager, Bo, who answered all questions and gave directions to restaurants and beach. Walking distance to everything you want or... More

I picked this place after reading the raves on TripAdvisor, and sorry to say I don't agree with the high ratings. Except for the owners, who really are delightful. And the room was well cleaned by the housekeeper. That said, there is a lot I didn't like (and I would not return): the rooms very much need updating: everything from... More

Not sure how the Best Florida Resort measures up to other motels in the area, but I would say for the price range (175/night) shopping around might not be a bad idea. The room was clean enough and we enjoyed the quirky, quiet ambiance. Hower for the price paid the shower was unacceptable (no pressure and temps went from freezing... More

Well mantained. Nice grounds. Rooms could use some light updating to freshen them up but over all nice place. Quiet at night even being on a main road. Owners were very acommodating. Pool was nice with lush surroundings. Walking distance to awesome restaurants and entertainment. Beach is walking distance and so is the pier. Shower needed more pressure, but worked... More

Well maintained with lovely garden. Nice to sit by the pool and beach not far away. Manager on sight and most helpful. Clean rooms and quiet at night which serves me well. Good value and close to restaurants and attractions.
