Stayed here in January '15. We used to stay at the 'big' hotels over the years in Lauderdale by the Sea until they were sold and became run down. Big turn off for us to the town, and we started going elsewhere. We came back based on reviews of some of the small hotels, and Great Escape Inn was excellent.... More

Great accommodations at an affordable price. Kind and caring staff too. Old time motor lodge with updated facilities. Small, conveniently located within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping.

I visited the Great Escape Inn in Lauderdale by the Sea and was thrilled. What a wonderful gem of a place. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The rooms are immaculate and beautifully decorated. The pool was lovely and came complete with sunscreen. I would definitely visit again! Highly recommend it!

I decided to book a room at the Great Escape Inn recently for a 10 day business trip. To my surprise, the INN was meticulously well maintained and the room was clean and cozy, even to my high standards. When I got there, Mark upgraded my room to a bigger suite, which was very generous of him. The staff was... More

I had just lovely stay at this establishment. The rooms were immaculate and even smelled like your housekeeper just left kinda clean. The pool and courtyard were very nice. The beach was within walking distance and they even provide chairs and umbrellas. I will be back again!

Very nice location and rooms. Clean and big rooms, they are very helpful. I highly recommend this hotel. We were very satisfied with our stay. The location is away from the crowded Fort Lauderdale area, but Lauderdale by the Sea is a growing area.

We live in Fort Lauderdale and when my family came down for a visit we put them, and ourselves, up at the Great Escape Inn. We could not have been happier. Staff was extremely friendly and very attentive. They supplied chairs and umbrellas for the beach, it is in a great location with great restaurants, a Publix grocery and the... More

Just like its name, it was a great escape for both of us.The place is quiet, we were able to sit out and enjoy our lunch and supper at one of the outside tables almost everyday. We felt so safe taking walks... More
