We chose this hotel because it was on the beach in the Fort Lauderdale area and would not break our bank account. We enjoyed walking to Lauderdale-by-the-sea for the pier and the many different stores and restaurants. While the resort is showing its age, we heard a major renovation is starting in April. We also want to single out Tiffany... More

Had a ring stolen, shame on me not using the safe. Lock up your valuables!! Mentioned to the hotel upon check out and she said "Sorry nothing we can do" They have a safe in the closet, please make sure you use it.

I stayed in captain's Quarters for 4 nights during Super Bowl weekend. Room was never cleaned despite repeated requests. Was outdated. Outside furniture was filthy with bird droppings and service was non existent. Horrible experience. Friends stayed with me at two other rooms and felt the same. One friend left despite paying for room as a result of this place... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Captains Quarters before boarding on a cruise. It's tucked away from the main road and sits right on the ocean. Granted, the weather could've been warmer, but the staff helped me make the most out of my stay. The woman at the front desk was extremely warm and personable, making me feel right... More

We arrived in the morning after getting off of our cruise ship. We got there around 10 am and we were told our room would not be ready until 3 PM. We looked into our room and it appeared they were cleaning it at 10 am but it didn't get done until 330. We were unable to get the room... More

Believe the bad reviews on here, we never saw anything like it. We had plans to stay here for 5 nights, while I was checking us in my husband strolled into the open air courtyard to view the pool and property, he returned with a look of disgust saying he hopes our room looks better than what he was seeing....

We arrived at 10 for our reservation (just left our cruise ship) and had coordinated in advance that we would be in early. We also understood they couldn't guarantee us early entry to our room but being last to get a room wasn't exactly what we had planned either...in addition to it being 3:30 before we got into our room...

We were a 50 yr. old couple looking for a break after the holiday rush. We wanted a quiet Ocean Front place with lots of privacy. I think we found it here. We stayed in Room 204 at the end top floor with the only oceanFRONT balcony. The room was a bit outdated but they do there best to keep... More

It's on the ocean...which is nice...HOWEVER, the continental breakfast was bad, they were frequently out of coffee so we had to walk to pick some up, pool was dirty, room was never really cleaned. That's where my problem with this place really lies. There's like 20 rooms and 2 cleaning ladies and we were told our room would get cleaned... More

By far the dirtiest hotel room we've had the misfortune of staying in. There is cracker or some type of crumbs along with sand in and on our bed and all over the floor. Also found long hairs around pillow area. We went searching for extra pillows in the closet hoping for the best. ..no luck, there is something pink... More
