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.

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
