“Great place to stay pre/post cruise!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Spent night there 1/4/13 prior to boarding cruise on 1/5/13. Was a bit skeptical of the hotel when I booked because of the great rate, free transporation from airport and to ship. Boy was I surprised!!!! Met wonderful people at front desk, check in quick. (we got there early, they put us in our room right away) Room, nice, CLEAN, efficient. Had everything and more we needed for the 1 night. Restaurants within walking distance (try Duffys!) Signed up right away for our van to the cruiseport. They were prompt and did I mention FREE??? H.I. Express next door double the price and you pay to go to the cruiseport. No pool though but no big deal, for 1 night. I am very picky about hotels but boy this one exceeded my expectations!!!!

Free airport shuttle was prompt. Room was ready for check in about noon when we arrived. The room was very clean. Front desk was helpful and courteous. I would stay there again before a cruise. The location is good for taking the city bus or the water taxi. You can walk to many restaurants and two large grocery stores and two large liquor stores.

Adequately clean, but needs a douche. Additionally both my husband and I woke up with some bug bites. Don't know if pets were allowed an they were fleas. Sheets were scratchy and the mattress was too noisy.

We stayed here the night before our cruise. This place is close to both the Fort Lauderdale airport and the cruise terminal. Its very clean and in excellent condition. The location is nice--coffee shops and restaurants all around. The price was very competitive, actually better than comparable properties.

There is a free shuttle from the airport and to the cruise port. We were disappointed that there was a 45 min wait for the shuttle on the day our flight came in. We ended up taking a cab ($16 including tip). But the shuttle to the cruise port was very efficient.

Be sure you understand this is not a full-service hotel. There is no pool or restaurant. And teh breakfast is a "grab and go" with fruit, energy bars, coffee and juice--just enough to get your morning started.

Would I stay here again? Yes, for sure, without any hesitation.

We got there and checked in very quick.

Room was very clean, no problems at all. Shuttles to the cruiseport were often enough and had zero problems. Would stay there again!

It's in walking distance to a Walgreens, right across the street from a Chipotle, Starbucks & Einstein Brothers for breakfast. Liquor store 2 blocks away as well!

We stayed for one night. The entire staff were efficient and helpful. Only complaints were that the sink was getting a crack rm 112 and the bed spread kept sliding off of the bed. There are great restaurants in the area. We ate at the Southport Raw Bar which has great seafood and is only two blocks. I would return .especially since it is so affordable.

We have stayed here twice, once back in 2009 and again in 2012. We needed a place to stay before our cruises and this hotel fit our needs perfectly. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the staff were pleasant and the hotel is in a fantastic location. That was all we were looking for.

The room had a large refrigerator and a small kitchenette which we did not use, but would definitely be useful for a longer stay. The hotel was not very large, which made it easy to get around and easy to exit. This is where this hotel pays off. Location..location...location.

This hotel is within easy walking distance to a grocery store, a Walgreens, a liquor store and several restaurants (we eat at Duffy's). We were able to buy all of our cruise supplies and walk them back to the hotel (we used the alley behind the hotel because it is much faster).

We had coffee and fruit from their free continental breakfast before the shuttle (Included free, must sign up) took us to the cruise port. The hotel also offers a shuttle from the airport, but we did not use it. We will definitely stay there again if cruising from Fort Lauderdale.
