Good location. Owners are friendly. Continental breakfast was just coffee and rolls. Beds comfy but we found longs hairs in our bed, on the sheets, pillow cases and blankets which grossed us out. It made us wonder if the sheets had been changed. Long hairs were found in the bathroom also and the ledge above the sink looked like it... More

My husband and I went on a quick trip to the Ft. Lauderdale area, and stayed our first night in a name-brand hotel in Ft. Lauderdale on the ICW. We were sorry we did that because the next two nights we found and stayed at Captain's Quarters Resort and loved it! Granted, it is a 50s-60s style motel/hotel building, but... More

We enjoyed our week stay at this resort very much. It is right on the beach at Lauderdale by the Sea. We stayed in a standard room but next time will book a room with a kitchenette for the convenience of preparing meals and more room. The resort has lovely flowers and plants. There is enough room for guests to... More

We stayed with my husband and two kids recently and we were so excited about our holiday. When we arrived at The Captains Quarters after a long day travelling we were were welcomed by a grumpy man at the desk who had no clue who we were or anything to do with our booking which was a bit concerning. Finally... More

we go there every year because we feel at home. The place is attended by the owners that have the eye on every detail. A Publics supermaket is a block from the resort, so you can cook your own barbacue watching the ocean. Rooms are spacious and confortable. Beach chairs and parasols are provided too.

My husband & I recently spent 4 days in an efficiency room at the Captains Quarters. The room wasn't fancy, but it was clean and well-maintained. The 2 double beds were comfortable, and the room included a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker. The hotel is right on the beach, and has a delightful stone patio that is well-equipped with tables and... More

We have just returned from 10 relaxing days at the Captain's Quarters resort. The Captains Quarters is the typical "Mom and Pop" run motel which was common thirty years ago but not so much anymore. You can see the pride the owners have in the motel as they are there daily making sure that things are just right. It is... More

I should have known when I saw 2 signs taped to the window at check in. "All rooms to be paid in full at checkin" and "absolutely no refunds". We reserved the "king room" #107, she said that "we would love the room" ??? After seeing it, it was as if they tried to fit a king size mattress into... More

My wife and I stayed here for a few days in Feb. This is a small 1970's era motel style accommodation, run by Mom and Dad. It has an excellent location, right on the beach. Walk out the door, and there you are on the beach. Unfortunately, there are some significant negatives. *The refrigerator and stove in the room are... More
