Came to LBTS as I do most Februarys, but booked late this time and couldn't find a 1-bedroom anywhere so went with Captain Quarters. Other than the fact that you are directly on the beach in this place (please don't call it a resort) nothing else about it is good. The housekeeping is practically non-existent. Two of my 9 night...

If you want an opportunity to see what Fort Lauderdale by the Sea used to be, this may be your last chance for an old style motel stay before the entire beach becomes high-rise hotels and condos. This hotel is old but clean. Rooms are roomy on two floors facing an outdoor pool (with nice bedding, iron, hair dryer, kitchen... More

I liked this hotel. But it is only place to stay. There are no activities there. It is perfect for those with children though, as it is difficult for them to get lost there. The beach is pretty good and restaurants are very close. There is a frozen yogurt cafe near there which I enjoyed after my runs along the... More

This place is old and some equipment is not top notch. However that's not why you come here. I like this place due to the fact that it's located just at the beach in one of the more quiet locations in lauderdale by the sea. You can get a room with your own kitchen so if you do not want... More

A beautifully located motel with attentive and enthusiastic staff. All very simple but totally honest. Nice pool and leisure and access directly onto a pristine beach. I intend to spend longer there next spring. One minor criticism - the breakfast would benefit from a little fruit, possible sliced Melon and Pineapple - very low cost for such a big improvement

Hi, our family had an excellent stay at this place. All of us enjoyed this place which is both central to the airport as well as being right on the beach. The place was really clean, and the room was perfect for our big family. Can recommend this!

Hello, I just spent 5 days at Captain's Quarters and had a GREAT time. It's all about the location, right on the beach, no road to cross. The courtyard/swimming pool area is well arranged, providing chairs and tables to relax. The rooms are basic but have been well kept. And not to mention the very friendly staff. Just a few... More
