“Phenomenal...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2011

The rooms are modern and clean. The staff (Nelson and Larry) are fantastic. All of your amenities are in the room... coffee maker, AC, fridge, cable, free wireless, microwave. Sure the rooms have no phone... but anywhere else you stay makes you pay an arm and leg for even just local service, so it's really no big deal. I never use the phone in any hotel I've stayed at anyway.

Starbucks, Walgreens, a half dozen restaurants, dry cleaners... it's just a wondeful place to stay. Unless your looking for the Waldorf Astoria, this is the ONLY place I would stay at while in Downtown Ft. Lauderdale.

elmolive,
Thank you so much for your kind review, you are welcome anytime! Although the Oasis is a great place for vacationers, business travellers really enjoy having a dry cleaner and Starbucks nearby. The convenient location, fantastic staff and great rates (we're one of the only motels in that area that boast $100 nightly rates) make the Oasis a real gem!

We selected this motel on the basis of the other reviews.
While the Oasis has definite appeal for some, it may not be the place for everyone.
We found the room to be:
sparse, no phone, stains - bedspread & blood on the floor - coffee machine with old coffee grinds covered in mold & unusable. My partner was very upset & wanted to leave - I noticed big cob webs in the corner and used the drape to clean them b4 she noticed!
The motel is in a very convenient location - near the airport and cruise port - the area is good and an easy walk up to 17th where there are great dining places.
Nelson is decent and tries hard - in my humble opinion - I would rate it 2+
The motel is probably perfectly acceptable to some - but it is not for everyone.

A word of warning about taxis - from the airport - i gave him the address - Miami Rd - he said he had never heard of it and nor did his dispatcher - He was taking us to the city of Miami ! I ordered him back to the airport - the next driver gave us the same grunt & I pushed him to state whether he knew the location. - no response. The dispatcher started giving us a rough time so we took our suitcases out and walked to a different area. We asked JetBlue staff for help and they told us the taxis were trying to rip us off since the location was only a 10 min lift. It ended up costing us $45 for a $15 trip.
Nelson told us others had had the same problem.
Advice - have the address, phone no. and tell them it is #1 nth at Davies - even Ft lauderdale taxi drivers have to know That location!

Will7,
We are sorry to hear about your troubles with the taxi service. Although the taxi company is not affiliated with us, we always want our guests to arrive at the Oasis safely and without any problems. We were happy to hear that the location of the Oasis was convenient, and that you were able to enjoy the great dining so close by.

Thank you.

The owner and the hotel manager are the 2 nicest man I have met in Fort Lauderdale. They really take the time to make your stay as comfortable as possible. If you have a question the answer is NEVER, I dont know......They will find it out for you. The rooms are nice, everything you need is inside. The AC works correct, TV is at you leisure, big shower, good water flow, proper draining and no nasty odors. It could use a vacuum cleaner, but all with all it is the perfect stay in Fort Lauderdale. Do not look any futher, just stay at Oasis Motel. ps: pharmacy and Starbucks are across the street.

NancyPeters,
You are correct, the Oasis is a great place to stay. The staff is very accomodating and strives to go above and beyond for our guests. If we don't have the answer, we will find it for you.
With a variety of stores at arms length, guests are able to get everything they need and the rates at the Oasis are unbeatable!
Please visit us again soon!

Very close to the Port for crusing. Half the price of most stuff on the strip. Very accomodating staff. Nelson is great! Walgreens across the street. Save your money for your time on the ship! Clean and comfortable.

Dear Tengelhardt,

Thank you for staying with us. You are correct, the nightly rates at The Oasis are very reasonable. It's probably the only place in that area that is under $100! We look forward to you staying with us during your next cruise layover.

The price was reasonable and location had a good access to city attractions.
The manager, Nelson, was quite friendly and polite.
If I get back to Fort Lauderdale, again I stay in this hotel.

Amir2011,

Thank you for staying with us. We have had a lot of happy people here since we took over ownership and renovated. People are also pleased with the location, as the Oasis is close to the city, to Broward Hospital and is also great for people who are on stop overs for a cruise.

We hope you visit us again soon, you're always welcome at the Oasis!

This is my third day at this newly renovated hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, and I am very satisfied with the location, the great valued for money, and perhaps more importantly, by the great service I have received from the manager. He is truly devoted to making your stay as comfortable as possible and to help you with any information you may need!
