We have been going to the Sea Lord from our home in Cincinnati Ohio for 10 years now, every Christmas break. It gets better and better every year. Always lovely decor, and outstandingly clean. Hotel staff are very responsive, helpful, and friendly. Fabulous location right ON the beach and just a couple of blocks from great restaurants and fun shops.... More

We've been annual visitors to this small hotel for almost ten years. Staff seem always glad to see us and remember our names. Several very good restaurants within walking distance. Reasonable rates for such an ideal beach location. Complimentary breakfast is served every morning including scrambled eggs and several choices of meats and fruit. Only negative was the mattress which... More

We stayed at the Sea Lord for 5 nights earlier this month. I had stayed in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea for a month about 15 years ago and thus already knew it to be a quiet, low-rise oasis in the midst of the concrete monoliths of coastal North Broward. For a hotel that's been around for a while, the Sea Lord is in... More

I had fond memories of visiting with my family when i was 15, and the rooms have definitely improved since then! I remember them as very stark and without much style. We had a king size bed, and i honestly found it to be too soft for my liking, although my partner liked it. We used the kitchen to cook... More

I’ll start this review by saying that I will definitely return to the Sea Lord now that I know what to expect and understand it’s fit with my travel plans. This was my first visit to Lauderdale by the Sea and I liked it a lot. Bordered by the geriatric Galt Ocean Mile, Fort Lauderdale proper and an endless mass... More

We stayed in an oceanfront king room on the 5th floor and our view was fabulous. The room was a good size and was certainly decent enough. The bed was very comfortable although we found it odd that the tv was not easily viewed if one was trying to watch from bed. There was a loveseat in front of the... More

Upon arrival I was informed that the room I had a reservation for and conformation was not available. Since I booked a certain room because I enjoy the view from that room, this did not start my vacation off to a good start.

We've been there twice this year and loved it both times. Olga was very helpful with any questions we had. The views are amazing, along with the private beach area! The only drawback is if you're not on an upper floor, you can hear the folks stomping above you. We could sometimes hear the people next door, but it was... More
