Clean rooms, good linens, good furniture for the price. The mattresses were very hard for me so I adjusted myself with the extra pillows. Simple walk to everything. Staff is very friendly. Recommend for the price.

We've stayed at Great Escapes 3 times, including twice this year. The staff is friendly, the hotel has character and is very clean. There is a wonderful beach about a 2 minute walk away. The beds are comfy, wifi works great and the price is right. The place is small and you often get to know the folks who are... More

I used trip advisor to find things to do for my family and friends as we were visiting from out of state. Some people had doubts but after playing we all thought it was so awesome and fun. We were able to get a group that messed so well (they group you with others, depending on the game and #... More

I had the good fortune to pick by chance the Great Escape Inn for my stay in Lauderdale by the Sea. From my phone call to book my reservation to my check out, everything was perfect. Cindy, the owner, was as accommodating as she could be when I arrived and requested a different room as the room I was booked... More

This is a small cozy, quiet place walking distance from the beach. We had a one bedroom apartment. The sofa bed mattress was lumpy. The two beds in the bedroom were hard and small (short and narrow). They might have been full or 3/4 size so not too good for two. This was the only place we stayed in FL... More

Perfect place to stay when in Fort Lauderdale for business. Excellent service, clean rooms(I had the 2bd suite). The Inn is withing walking distance to the beach and plenty of restaurants but at the same time relaxing and accomodating. Eventhough the road is right in front of the Inn, I did not hear any noise. Will come again over and... More

This was a gem of a find! We stayed in the 2 bedroom room, it was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. The kitchen was basically stocked, but had everything we needed. The service was exceptional. Anything we needed they went out of their way to meet our needs. Clean towels, fresh sheets, beach toys for our kids, chairs... More

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.
