“Bass pro shops at a side is a great hitch! very nice hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

hello my fellow colleagues! i hope you are doing all great! we wanted to visit the bass pro shops at dania beach and found this very nice hotel. which, by the way is in an excellent location. the room itself is pretty pretty good for the price we got. the bed is comfortable as well the pillows. has a nice flat tv and the breakfast is included on the rate. check in was very smooth... they have many latin guys there, so english will not be a problem. the breakfast is ok, has waffles, eggs and plenty options to have your morning started... if you are in fort lauderdale area is a must to visit sawgrass mill. for those that doesn't know is a big mall, and is just located a 15 or 20 minutes drive from this hotel... is a shopper's paradise... the only con is the elevators. at breakfast the hotel is very very busy and the elevators are very very slow, i know we are on vacation and is not the best way to spend it but if you are on the first or second floor i suggest to take the stairs... i will come back, because it was a nice stay and believe me the price is unbeatable and you got more for what you are paying...

Room Tip: if you don't want to wait for elevators take first or second floors...

Hotel has free pick up from the airport. We called them and they said, We're on our way. We waited half of hour and called back, only to be told "Oh the driver hasn't left yet" but we will send him right away. We waited another 40 minutes and he finally shows up. NO TIP for him. We were suprised to find the front desk lobby empty and there was no wait. It still took front desk 30 minutes to check us in. They put us on hold and answered phone calls, and did plenty of talking among themselves. Hotel and rooms were fine. If you have plenty of patience this just might be the hotel for you.

We booked and pre-paid three months ahead of catching a Cruise out of near by port, yet our rooms were not close together as was requested. We were taken back by the amount of air freshener used in corridors and in our rooms; what were they covering up with that anyway? Carpets in our rooms had not been vacuumed before our arrival and we were reluctant to take our shoes off. I lifted the couch cushions and found all kinds of disgusting things underneath them. What really rubbed us the wrong way was the lack of front desk staff at prime check-in and check-out times. Airport/Seaport Hotels know very well ahead of time when they are going to be busy and to not schedule staff accordingly and keeping us and dozens of other cruisers waiting for service is totally unacceptable.

Sorry to hear you did not find the carpet clean in your room and the front desk service slow, I will make sure the comments are passed on to the management team so that they can look into these two issues. Thanks for filling out a review.

I've stayed in 8 diff hotels in FLL and MIA area...3 were Best Westerns...and this is the cleanest hotel and best value I've found. I've stayed there 3 times over the past year and had visitors stay there 2 times and each time, we've found it extremely clean, good hearty breakfast food and employees are helpful and respectful. The workout room and pool are also clean and available at good hours too. This is in comparison to a similarly priced Best Western I stayed at within a 1 mile radius that had roaches in the bed b/c they did not clean behind or under the beds. In the other one, i changed room 4 times and found the same cookies/ crumbs and trash under the bed..but the Best Western Airport South Inn and Suites (Stirling blvd) is beautiful and clean and a good value.

Room Tip: all rooms seem to be good...it seems to be a newly built hotel with many amenities.

I arrived at the hotel at 1:00AM in the morning after a delayed flight. The Front Desk agent David was not very accommodating, he advised me that he sold my room since I did not check in by midnight. Told me to call Hotwire.com and request a refund and to call the Manager in the morning if I wanted to issue a complaint.

David was a smug individual who could have easily called other hotels to help me but he didn't. He simply told me this it was not his fault that the hotel overbooked their rooms.

I'm not mad at the hotel for selling my room, but rather disturbed by David's actions that has left a bad taste in my mouth. Won't use this hotel ever again !!

We booked this hotel using points. The hotel is moderately new, in a central location close to airport and seaport.

The main reason we chose to stay here was the proximity to the Seaport in Fort Lauderdale. We were taking the Balearia Bahamas ferry across to the Bahamas and needed a place to stay.

It was also relatively close to most shopping centres, good places to eat, and of course Dania Beach

The rooms are nice, clean and new. Large flatscreen with new bathroom and the comfiest beds ever. The property also features a free breakfast buffet in the morning and a pool.

We spent 1 night here,after a very late arrival from the airport. We were immediately impressed with this beautiful hotel. We were tired after a long flight,but the staff made the check-in pricess quick and easy. The beds were heavenly! The room was very attractive and new furnishings. Free hot breakfast the next morning was very good. It was crowded,but the people seemed to move through quickly. The waffles you make yourself are to die for1

Room Tip: Our room was main floor and perfect!
