“Great little place which got better!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

We were catching a cruise and came down early (a bit far, as in a $30 cab ride) from airport to Port Everglades, but it was fun to explore this area. Short walk to beach & nice shops & restaurants. Clean & good for the price.

The Galt Villas is a smaller, very well kept motel. We were impressed right from the start with how friendly and helpful the staff were. I wish I had gotten his name, but the german man at the desk gave us all the information we needed for our 3 day stay. The room was much more than we expected - complete with kitchen including fridge, stove coffee maker and all dishes and untensils. The front of the motel has a large patio with tables, chairs and umbrellas. They have a laundry facitily. Galts guests have access to a great pool at the hotel next door - 2 min walk.
The motel is across from the beach but unfortunately due to condo's being built over the years , they neglected to leave any access to the beach for the public. The walk is about 5 or 6 blocks around the condos. If your driving, its 2 min to Fort Lauderdale on the Beach - a neat little area with great restaurants, shops, a huge beach and pier. Parking is $1.50 per hour but there are some little motels right on the strip that will let you park all day for $5. It was an exceptional stay!

We enjoyed our stay at the Galt Villas Motel. The people are friendly, the accommodations are fine, and you can get a room that sleeps 4 to help defray costs. I stayed there during a holiday weekend, and the price was fair for that timeframe.

The hotel is an older one on a main road that has been updated. It is not a resort or luxury hotel by any measure but its a perfectyly acceptable choce for a short stay. Its a $32 cab fair from airport and $28 to cruise port (+ tip) so that an issue. Room interior was just fine. Flat screen tv, refer, everything clean etc. I ran fan all night so noice was not an issue. Cost was quite a bit less then other options I found. Staff were nice enough. Beach is not far away and several resteraunts were near by.

The staff was very nice and welcoming. I had to leave early for an emergency back home, and they gave me a credit (which I did not expect!) for a future visit. Now that's how you win repeat business! I will be staying here on all my future trips to Fort Lauderdale.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Our group of four flew into Ft. Lauderdale a day before our cruise out of Miami. Like hundreds of others, we needed a place for one night, and it did not need to be more than a decent place to stay. This place is clean as a whistle, landscaped, pleasant, priced right, and within walking distance of a couple of great restaurants. Nice folks, and easy to work with. The office e-mailed a suggested transportation company, who gave a package price for airport to motel to port of Miami to airport (Swingline Transportation), and they did a nice job. Nick's Italian was great for dinner. The motel looks like 1950, with new bath fixtures. We loved it. Hope to visit again before our next cruise.
