“Great location, but do I really have to check my bill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

This is a very nice hotel with a great location close to the beach. Our room was clean, the breakfast was good and the staff was very pleasant. The one complaint I have is with the extra charge for a room safe. At check in I was told that if I didn't want to use the safe I should mark no safe on the registration card and I wouldn't be charged for it. That is what I did, yet the charge still appeared on our bill. True, it is only $3. But if it is standard practice for the hotel to charge or not charge based on what is filled out at check in, then I shouldn't have to call them to ask that the charge be removed. Charge $3 more for a room if they want to,it would be worth it not to leave guests with the cheap feeling that this extra charge does.

Its a great place to stay - its off the beaten path and they have great people - I have stayed there numerous times over the past couple of years without any incident or issues - many of the rooms have been recently remodeled.

Stayed at the Sleep Inn and Suites, Dania Beach, FL in July 2014 before going on a cruise. The room was very comfortable for three. We had two queen beds and a pull out sofa. In addition we had a fridge and microwave. The location was perfect and close to Port Everglades. I would definitely stay here again.

We spent two nights on a recent apartment huntin trip. The hotel was inexpensive and located in an area we wanted to be. The room had a musty smell but everything was clean. We were on the first floor near the outside door. It didn't seem to lock all the time. The staff was friendly. The morning breakfast was adequate, nothing special. They ran out of one of my daughter's favorite cereals.

Good location, pleasant staff, nice breakfast buffet, if only the rooms didn't smell like smoke. Stayed for 2 nights pre-cruise and did manage to get someone to come in and spray some kind of freshener on the carpet and bedding; however a few hours later the smell was back stronger than ever. These formerly smoking rooms need to be gutted and furniture and bedding replaced if they ever hope to get rid of the smell. Housekeeping was poor also. The bottom of the bathtub was black and the desk drawers had items left from the previous occupants. Disgusting!

Room Tip: Check out the room for smell before accepting it.

We only stayed here for one night before our cruise leaving from the Port of Miami. Check-in around 8 pm was quick but the desk attendant wasn't friendly. It was a pre-paid stay, so great value for a king suite with a queen sleeper. The sofa was stained and sleeper bed was very uncomfortable. But the TV was updated with lots of cable channels, including HBO. The King bed was not too bad. Bathroom was showing some wear and tear with a missing drain plug, and water pressure was low. Breakfast was typical and nothing special. Clean but small dining room.

Best feature was close proximity to a really well-stocked Walgreen's. We ended up going twice for last-minute items. Also, we had a late night snack at Pancho's Backyard across the street. Pretty good margarita and loaded nachos. Don't forget to use your rom key for a small discount, like we did.

My family and I recently stayed at this hotel. The hotel is completely non-smoking but at one time smoking was allowed in many of the rooms. The smell is extremely strong we had to try four rooms before we found one that didn't stink like smoke, but smelled of mold. The furniture was beat up from torn computer chair to a stained couch that was missing a leg. The toilet ran constantly.
The side door had a broken handle, anyone could have gotten into the hotel. Actually another family was assigned our room and entered our room as I was about to go to sleep. With this and graffiti in the elevator, I didn't feel very secure in our hotel.
We discussed leaving and going to another hotel, but this was a prepaid stay and was nonrefundable. There should be a clause that if you get into the room and it looks nothing like the pictures, smells and is a dump they must give you back your money plus traveling expenses.

Room Tip: The rooms on the ends have never been smoked in, however they are very dated and have their own uniq...
