We're a fan of the Residence Inn chain as from the practicality point of view, it always delivers. We wanted a quiet place that is away from the "bright lights" of South Florida as well as being in the proximity of Fort Lauderdale & Miami. We chose this place as its within reach of Sawgrass Mills as we needed to... More

Stayed with family for a swim competition nearby. Rooms were decent, maybe a little on the small size. The adjacent dining area with a nice kitchen, fridge, microwave and sink was ok. Great for a quick snack. Kids didn't complain to much about the sofa bed. The queen sized bed was ok. Slept great. Staff was friendly and had no... More

We have stayed at this hotel 3 times, the last time in April 2015. The breakfast is very good with lots of choices, including fresh fruit. We had a 2 bedroom suite and found it so very convenient for us when we visited for a family reunion. It's close to lots of very good shopping and just about 15 -... More

We stayed at this hotel in order to have a 2 bedroom suite at a decent price while attending a graduation ceremony. All of the hallways smelled musty, or just old.. or like something generally unpleasant. When we got to our room, one of the bedroom doorknobs fell right off the door! I have a hard time believing that they... More

The staff was excellent, the location was excellent but the hotel needs a major renovation. The hotel is over 20 years old and needs major renovation. Sofas are stained and worn. Walls and floors need cleaning, bad smell in hallways. They say they will renovate soon. They really need to. I left and stayed at the Fairfield Inn and Suites... More

Great staff, very friendly! Meghan is always fast, friendly and efficient!! Rooms are nice. The Inn looks a little worn, but I'm sure it will improve when the renovation is complete. The evening food and drink social is a nice touch. Breakfast could improve with firmer eggs and a better fruit selection. Overall, I always enjoy my stay because the... More

The 2 bedroom suite was perfect for my entire family. We needed a good place to stay locally before getting on a cruise ship the next day. We picked the perfect spot! The hot breakfast was also much better than the usual hotel breakfast!
