We had an ocean view room and it was absolutely wonderful. I would definitely stay here again. The owners were lovely people and all the staff were very kind. The hotel was very, very clean.

The location is fantastic specially when travelling with kids. My vacations were like divided in 2 because the first five days we stayed in a room that was really horrible, we called it "the cave" as it was like a hole with poor lighting and if you opened the curtains everyone walking by could see you. We tried to change... More

Our most recent stay at the Sea Lord was July 2011. We have been staying here for years. The hotel is beautiful and spotlessly clean, especially the pool area. Each time we return, we notice that the hotel is always updated in some way. The rooms are modern and very comfortable, tastefully decorated and have everything you would need to... More

My family stayed here for 10 nights in June. My dad had a ocean front room, which was breath taking - so amazing. My partner, baby and myself had partial ocean view room, this was nice but quite small, however was fine for what we needed. Alga was very pleasent in the front lobby, sometimes we needed photo coping done... More

Our family is now into the second generation of taking our children to The Sea Lord every year for our spring beach vacation. We remember the "old" Sea Lord and have been knocked out by the "new" Sea Lord. We absolutely love this hotel and would not consider staying anywhere else in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. This apartment/hotel has many, many loyal customers... More

We started out our stay at a different hotel not far from from the Sea Lord and decided to switch after 24 hours. This was the best decision we could have made. The staff was friendly and courteous, the rooms were clean, the bed comfortable and the beach...AMAZING! We will be returning here next year!

There is every chance this review will be met with a standard upbeat 'management response' but I would read it with caution. Prior to writing this review we have emailed and not received a prompt reply, any reply on here is simply because this is now in the public domain. First of all the good, and there are good aspects... More

This is a great place to stay. We have previously stayed at another place in LBTS in December and it seemed old and worn. Not the Sea Lord. We had a regular room for one night and it was really nice--soft sheets, great plush comforter, a separate vanity area from the bathroom, there was a microwave and small fridge. Everything... More

Checked in, hotel was under construction, and lobby was not clearly marked. Check in was a breeze, very friendly desk people. Room was small, but ok. For the most part it was pretty clean, the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner though. The price paid definitiely did not equal what I thought the room was worth.
