We arrived after midnight and was greeted by the most friendly front desk person. She arranged it so my group of 8 family members had two rooms next to each other and couldn't have been more congenial. The rooms were perfect. And the breakfast the next morning was wonderful. I would definitely choose this hotel again if staying in the... More

Noticed that extreme dust deposits and other debris were on the ceiling after being there for a couple of nights. The Manager did not seem too concerned, the housekeeper was surprised to see the dust and the centipede like critter I caught crawling through the room. They cleaned and sprayed for insects. Left the next day with what felt like... More

The location is great, close to a mall, minutes from the beach and Sawgrass Mills outlet mall. Room was large, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The most impressive feature of this hotel is it's housekeeping staff- they are the most friendly, helpful, polite , people in the hotel. " It's my pleasure" is their catch phrase and they really mean it.... More

We stayed here last night. Not familiar with the area, however the hotel sits back from the road and is actually very quiet. Close to Westfield Mall. I was promptly greeted in the lobby and given an upgrade to a one bedroom suite. The property is one of the older Residence Inns, however very well maintained and clean. After we... More

My wife and I love staying at Residence Inn properties and this one definitely didnt let us down. The price is very decent for South Florida, the amenities and size of the rooms are fantastic, and the staff was very welcoming.

Not a fan of the smell or the manager who was very friendly with my spouse (when I wasn't present). Also, it would be nice if someone could get a handle on the noise and chaos in the hallways due to unruly guests and children.

Stayed here for 4 nights while on vacation in South Florida. I chose this hotel because it was the cheapest in the area and I was able to use a category 1-4 free night certificate.

Stayed here prior to cruising out of FLL, and enjoyed it immensely. Only 10 min to cruiseport, and just off I-595, it is conveniently located. Can walk to Catholic Church which is next door. Serves up a great breakfast, plus rooms are fresh & newly decorated. Towels are plush, as well. Check in was very fast.
