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

My parent have been coming to Lauderdale by the Sea for 10 years for a vacation from Minnesota. They have always stayed at a B&B north of Commercial Blvd on the beach. They had reservations to stay at the same place for 3 weeks this year. A month before they came down, I just happened to be in LBTS for... More

Let me first say we have been coming to the Sea Lord yearly for the past 10 years. We have always loved this property with its old charm flavor and excellent location. But this time we noticed many changes that Im forced to warn people about. It seems to me the management is putting a lot of money and time... More

Nice location lovely beach easy to get to town.....great little community. I was not super impressed with the beds(they were hard and cheap) and the room being in front of the elevator was noisy. The sheets were kind of dirty. But the place was clean and rebuilt. Also the breakfast was good and the pool was nice too. The grounds... More

This is our third time here, once as the day guests of dear friends, who recommended the Sea Lord. It takes us back a little in time as it is not as modern as the new, big box hotels, and that is not all bad. They attract a very nice clientele and we enjoy meeting new friends here. My only... More

My sister recommended my husband and I stay here. We planned a last minute road trip without any hotel reservations, so we drove from MI straight to the Sea Lord and luckily we had a room there for our entire stay which was 8 nights. The hotel is right on the beach which is perfect and there's a nice little... More

Our room was not overly fancy but it was clean and had all the essentials including a comfortable bed, small fridge, microwave and safe. Unfortunately, the safe did not work - it said low batt. but I never reported this issue. By choice we had one of the smaller rooms with a view of the beach but no balcony. We... More
