We stayed at the Great Escape for two days before our cruise. It is in a great location, less than a block from the beach. The room we had looked like it was recently renovated, spacious, and clean. Service was top notch and the pool was good enough. The only negative was the mattress was a bit hard, but even... More

This is a quaint road side Inn on the main road only 2 blocks from a great beach access. Our room was very clean. We stayed in the one bedroom suite that was quite large. Nice pool area. Only negative, the road noise from the traffic.

This small hotel has a prime location in Lauderdale by the Sea, convenient to everything and a very short walk to the beach. The staff was great, and well trained. the rooms were older, but well maintained and quite clean. We will stay there again!

Stayed here based on all the positive Trip Advisor reviews, and they were accurate. While the place isn't new, everything is well-maintained or recently redone. The kitchenette in our room was clearly new, with new appliances. Overall, clean, comfortable, safe, ample parking, close to the beach. They provide towels and chairs you can take to the beach, and the pool... More

Me and my husband stayed here for 3 weeks during the Xmas Holiday 2014-2015. We had a studio (room with kitchen) - except for the traffic noise (which we got used to after 2 nights anyway), there is really nothing to complain about. Close to the beach, Publix, bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood, very friendly staff, room service everyday,... More

There are nice things about this place, but I won't stay again. Pros: The folks at check in and housekeeping were all very friendly. The room was clean and the place is close to the beach. If you just want a crash pad, this will be fine. The pool is also nice. There is a refrigerator in the room as... More

A basic motel with close proximity to beach BUT the walk there is on broken concrete due to construction, along a very busy road. We had the noisiest room there, right on the road. The pool was very near the road too. I would not stay there again. The exposure to the road did not make the "savings" over nicer... More

Mark H, Guest Relations Manager at Great Escape Inn, responded to this review

We appreciate your review. We are sorry to hear the road noise was a major disturbance during your stay with us. Most of the older hotels/motels in Lauderdale by the sea are set relatively close to the street since most of the buildings were constructed in the 1950s. If we had any vacancies that were further away from the street... More

Small friendly clean motel style place with a small pool. It is in a nice area just one block from the beach and within walking distance of a large supermarket with ATM and in the other direction, the pier area with restaurant and bars. Within taxi distance of airport ($50).

Loved it! Staff is wonderful and helpful, the room and bath were very clean. Office closes around 5:00 pm so do call if checking in later than that. Pool is perfect. The location is ideal, walk to great restaurants, entertainment and shopping. The beach is close, ask for chairs and towels.

We stayed at Great Escape Inn for 2 nights before a cruise. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and the price was very reasonable. It is a block from the beach and walking distance to several restaurants, bars, and stores. Anglins Pier is a 5 min walk. There are live bands in the street on... More
