“perfect stay for cruises”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Nelson is very pleasant,approachable, and quickly met our requests. It's a $15 cab ride to airport or port. A 20 minute walk to Harbour Shops (for groceries, Total wine) and a SunTrolley to drive (hop on and off) along beaches to Galleria Mall (cost 50 cents one-way or $2 day pass). The Walgreen is close to buy last minute items..sunscreen, toothpaste, wine. We were early to arrive from our cruise and the room was ready. I found other close hotels pricer during cruise season ($250) and Oasis was great value. Definitely on our list to stay again and recommend to our friends.

prumar,
Thanks so much for staying with us. Your review was perfect, very informative and detailed. You're right, the rates at the Oasis are very affordable and much lower than the surrounding hotels. We are looking forward to your next visit. Take care, NBV

I have noticed The Oasis in Ft Lauderdale many times but never stayed here. However I was in FLL for 2 nights recently and decided at the last minute to stay here. I was really impressed - clean comfortable rooms with everything one would need. Nelson is great - nothing is too much for this manager and he goes out of his way to help you, with a big smile and a great sense of humour. Thank you, I will be back for sure.

Jill H,
We're so happy that you discovered the Oasis. Despite it's prime location, near the cruise port, shops and restaurants, sometimes it's easy to overlook this gem of a hotel. Now that you've found us, we hope that you'll make the Oasis your hotel of choice whenever you're visiting Fort Lauderdale! Thanks again, NBV

A real value. All the other places I checked were twice the price and more. Very attractive. Remodeled rooms and beautiful landscaping thanks to the manager, Nelson. Great BBQ restaurant less than a block away. 24 hour Walgreens across the street and a large Starbucks next door. Other restaurants close also. Neara the airport and cruise docks. Comfortable bed.

This is the place to be for a great value and a clean place to stay. It is actually close to a really good BBQ restaurant as well as Starbucks and all the car rental places plus only a few min to the airport. It isn't on the beach but if you are looking for value, stay here. Also, Nelson was so friendly and helpful. He stayed up late to check me in and was always there with a smile. The rooms are simple and clean.

First off - Nelson (the manager) is fantastic and very helpful so don't hesitate to chat with him if you need anything. My wife and I stayed for two nights in different rooms while waiting to go on a cruise. The first was great but the second (Rm 10) had a musty smell probably due to poor ventilation. Lots to like about this property - close location to the port, pharmacy and restaurants. Rooms are clean with decent beds and the price is very reasonable. Not close to shopping malls - Sawgrass Mills is a $50 cab ride away - so rent a car if you want to get around. Overall a great place for a short term stay.

Room Tip: Check whether the a/c unit in your room is directly facing the bed - this could be a problem for som...

This motel is an excellent value if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, no frills place to stay. My wife and I stayed one night prior to a cruise. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room was sparsely decorated with dark brown IKEA like furniture. The drapes and shower curtains appeared brand new. The linens were fine-not the cheapest scratchy kind but not luxury either. There was a small desk, dresser, tv. Coffee maker (no coffee or filters), toaster, microwave and small refrigerator in what was formerly a closet. There is a Starbucks next door, a walgreen's across the street and several chain and local restaurants within walking distance. Perfect for us since we were sans vehicle. If you are looking for a clean, quiet, comfortable place to stay near the cruise port I doubt you could do better.

This was my second stay at Oasis Motel and it was just as good as the first time. I was in Fort Lauderdale for business and to surprise my boys on their return from South Africa. They missed their flight and could not get another for a couple of days. Nelson went out of his way to rearrange their booking for when they eventually arrived and could not have been nicer to me in my misery of not getting to see them. The motel room and grounds were spotless and Nelson could not have been more friendly and helpful. I would recommend Oasis Motel to anyone wanting to stay in Fort Lauderdale in a central location.
