Not quite an “extreme makeover,” but a makeover nevertheless, Sea Lord has an owner committed to remaking the tired, old seafront property into very nice place to stay. You know you’re not staying in a 5-star property, but this little hotel has many plusses if your expectations are realistic. Regardless of the stars, my husband and I demand cleanliness, a... More

The hotel is spotless. The room was exceptionally nice. We stayed in 305. Sort of a mini suite. The young lady at the front desk, from the Ukraine, gave the hotel a decidedly european flair. This hotel is really right ON the beach. I stayed the first night in the very decrepit hotel just behind this one that claimed to... More

We own a Bed and Breakfast Inn and had to come to Ft. Lauderdale for a funeral. I was not feeling very creative and called....The Marriott. Thank goodness they were booked.

We were in the area for the first time and not sure where to stay. The City's Chamber of Commerce suggested this hotel. We were looking for one on the beach with a pool and most importantly was clean & neat. This hotel fit that description exactly. We even stayed in a non-ocean view room and still loved it. The...

Work usually takes me to Hyatts, Hiltons & Marriotts - nice but rarely interesting. But annually for 1 week, I attend a convention in Ft. Lauderdale and stay at the Sea Lord. From my balcony, I watch the surf break 40 ft. away, sunrises/sets with a glass of OJ, water or wine ..lovely. The well-equipped kitchen (the best knives ever)... More

My oldest daughter and I stayed here 2 nights before our cruise. The outside rooms are a walkway so you couldn't leave your drapes open. The floors were tiled and the walls were paper thin. You could hear the conversation in the next room very clearly. The tub had hair in it. There is a 10.00 fee for lounge chairs... More

My husband and I stayed four nights in jr. suite #401 at the Sea Lord in January '09. There is free parking on site, with several restaurants a three block walk away. The balcony (with two plastic chairs and a small table), the beach, and the ocean view are wonderful. The room, as described by previous reviewers, was clean, with... More

This hotel was booked based upon the mostly positive reviews found here on TripAdvisor. We stayed here mainly for the convenience to the beach and the price. Nothing glaring in the beginning, it was as our trip unfolded did we stumble upon some negative attributes. The hotel is undergoing some renovations and our room, was one of the few that... More
