My family and I recently just stayed at The Sealord in one of their oceanfront suites with 2 balconies. The room itself was very nice and clean, and it has a flat screen TV in both the bedroom and living room area. The balconies had a great view of the ocean. The pool was always clean and it's fairly big... More

Stayed with my Fiancé in a King deluxe room on the 5th floor with a partial ocean view. We decided to travel to Florida to get a break from the awful midwest winter this year. This was our first stay at the hotel and I could say that the hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel is very clean and well... More

Stayed for 3 nights for my wife's 30 year high school reunion and had a room on the beach. We originally had a standard room on the street side but it was a little small so we upgraded to a suite on the water. The suite was large with a full kitchen, sofa and large flat screen tv. Room was... More

We stayed at the Sea Lord for a few days. Hotel's location is amazing, lobby and dining area are beautiful. Breakfast is a big disappointment, no selection what so ever, awful bagels and pastries. Rooms are clean as you would expect when you pay this much, but very out of date. Big bald night security guard speaks no English what... More

I'm staying right now in this hotel, and me and my wife have received a terrible attention from the night guardian. When I told him that we wll complain for his rudeness his answer was "COMPLAIN AS MUCH AS YOU WHANT". Then he had a threatening attitude, when I picked up the telephone to call reception, he mockingly show me... More

We've stayed in a number of hotels in Ft Lauderdale by the sea. They all have a glitch or two with faucets or drains or problems with a shortage of lounge chairs. That's simply Ft Lauderdale by the sea. At this hotel, the staff was extremely kind and helpful, the rooms clean and large, the pool spotless and the eating... More

The hotel is on the beach. Families are treated better than couples! All family rooms are on the beach side. The hotel provides free breakfast. The breakfast is mediocre. Kirkland brand bagels, ego waffles, and horrible juice... And let's not forget the weak coffee. Beach chairs also cost 5$ a day. If you want clean sheets and a nice beach... More

My sister and I just returned from a 3 night stay at the Sea Lord. We had a great time. The ocean front 1 bedroom suite was spotless and the beach and pool are well kept. The staff are friendly and helpful. The bar and restaurant were not open, so I can only give this property a "very good". I... More

We booked Sea Lord Hotel as a place to stay the night before boarding our cruise. The hotel offered (at cost) transportation from airport. The front desk workers were helpful in printing documents for us. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, outdoor pool clean and clear. There are tables around the pool. We used them for early morning coffee while watching... More

NO cell reception in the room, had to go outside to make calls, bugs on the floor, bathroom didn't look clean...it seems like it's some sort of Russian mafia hotel where they don't really care too much about the personal amenities and needs of the guests. The restaurant isn't open, and we had to pay 5 dollars a piece to... More
