My family used to come here every year for 20 years. We stopped for a while and returned this year. I was very disappointed in many things. Firstly, we booked a specific room 4 months ago and upon check in we were told it was not available. We were quite upset and after a half hour or so we were... More

I'm a "repeat offender" of this Hotel - and still love it! I have seen some negative reviews, so I was curious to stay again, and glad I did. This is still a great Hotel with a very accommodating and attentive staff. A small staff, as usual, but efficient. I feel these people work very hard to cover a lot... More

My family stayed here for a few nights and it was a far cry from what we expected. We had stayed here before the remodel and while it is nice, it's trying to be something it's not. First off the staff is rude, you have to wait for everything. They want to charge for lounge chairs on the beach?! It's... More

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 Rooms are clean as you would expect when you pay this much, but very out of date.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
