“Excellent for before or after a cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We stayed one night before a cruise out of Port Everglades. The shuttle picked us up from the airport within 10 minutes of arrival. Check in was quick and easy and the room was clean. There was shopping and restaurants that we could walk to. The shuttle to the cruise ship was hassle free. This isn't a hotel that you would want to stay at for a vacation, but before or after a cruise is perfect.

Clean, attractive, efficient, and ample breakfast. Front desk staff was superb, including Kevin who was polite and professional, and offered us free bottles of water upon check-in. Close to the airport and the port. Our room was spotless, bed comfortable.

We stayed here on March 16th and March 23 while traveling to and from our Carnival Cruise. Each night we had a nice room that was clean. The staff at the desk was helpful, however the staff with KSA Tours, just inside the door that helped with the shuttle were not that helpful or friendly. We enjoyed the pool and patio, having dinner poolside both nights. My only complaint in the insane breakfast. I understand they have a lot of people to feed and get in and out of the hotel, but the entire breakfast area is absolutely nuts. I feel the area could be set up to flow more efficiently.

Dear Guest,

Thanks so much for your review of our hotel. I'm delighted your enjoyed your stay and I'm glad we were able to meet your needs.

I completely understand your comments regarding our lobby during breakfast. It does get a little "cozy"...a situation we hope to resolve with our upcoming renovation.

But I hope we exceeded your expectations with our service. Thank you for choosing us and we hope you'll consider us for your next visit to the area.

We chose to stay here to catch an early morning flight and were very satisfied with the overall experience. Breakfast started at 6 AM but the front desk told us we could come down at 5:45 and be served. Make your complimentary airport shuttle reservation when you check in. It leaves on the hour and the morning we went 10 people had signed up and 6 more just showed up expecting to get on. The shuttle driver did call in backup but we heard those people waited almost 30 more minutes. The rooms included ceiling fans which let us have less ac which we liked.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the non-freeway side of hotel for a better sleep.

Arrived at Fort Lauderdale airport called for shuttle took about 30 minutes to arrive(Phones are in the front of the terminals ) then we booked in, also booked our transfer to the cruise port ,do this early because space gets filled up fast .Breakfast was great but go early ,we went at 7.30 no problem but at 9 a.m lots of people and no tables left .Mall across the street ,Burger King in front and across the street Mcdonalds .If you want to go to a good restaurant you have to get a taxi. We were in the front of the hotel did not hear too much traffic noise. Would stay again for a one night stay ,but if staying longer would stay more in Fort Lauderdale .

It was a less than OK experience. We flew in late that night to find that they gave our room away! Luckily they had one handicap room left. Upon entering the room the sofa couch was opened & looked like someone had slept in it. Floors were dirty (our feet made the bathroom floor black when wet)
The shower leaked all over the floor due to it not having a shower pan. Thank goodness we only had two nights booked at this hotel and went on to much nicer ones!

A stayed at the hotel for two nights prior to taking a cruise out of Port Everglades. This is an ideal location for someone embarking on cruise out of Port Everglades who wants to arrive a day early. Staying at this location means you wouldn’t need a rental car as there is a shuttle from the airport to the hotel and a shuttle to the cruise port. Within a short walk are a number of different restaurants (mostly fast food) and a shopping mall for any last minute items. I did rent a car because I wanted to visit family in the area. Therefore, I didn’t use the shuttles and can’t comment on their reliability. However, I did note that during the morning hours the lobby was teeming with people and luggage getting on early shuttles to the port. The property itself was a bit run down, but clean and adequately equipped. The breakfast area was chaotic and during the peak times difficult to get a seat. The food was passable – mostly cheap carbs but if you wanted to eat healthy there were bananas, a selection of cold cereals and oatmeal. The gym is basically tow treadmills and the pool just a few feet away from interstate 95 although a good job was done in camouflaging the presence of the highway. Overall I think if you have a rental car you can access much nicer properties but if you want to avoid rental cars and you need to be at the port the following day, this property will be fit the bill.
