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

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

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
