“Thumbs up for the Extended Stay America”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2009

We stay 2 nights pre cruise. Rooms very clean and staff was friendly. Booked online with a special and the rates were almost 1/2 of neighboring hotels. With that said it is a "no frills" hotel. Great location close to Pt. Everglades. A couple of restaurants close by. The water taxi and a publix grocery store were within walking distance.
Would stay there again.

My husband and I along with another couple were looking for a reasonable priced hotel that was close to restaurants, stores, etc. for a one night stay prior to our cruise. We were very happy with the location and condition of this property. Coffee and bagels were right across the street and a grocery and wine store were just a short walk away. Coffe was provided in the lobby in the mornings but they were a bit stingy on the cream and sugar.

Front desk staff was very friendly and even provided a free dessert coupon fro the Italian restaurant next door. (which was very good). Beds were a little hard and appeared smaller than stated as we were in a king room but the bed was much closer to a queen. Overall the room was very basic but most importantly it was very clean. We would certainly stay here again for a pre-cruise night.

  • Liked — the location. price, and cleanliness
  • Disliked — hard beds and pillows

Several neighboring hotels were already booked, and we wanted a location close to Pt. Everglades.

This hotel provided a decent night's stay as our pre-cruise stopover before boarding our cruise ship the next day.

We booked directly at the hotel website for the lowest rate we could find compared to other travel sites.

While the beds are small, and it's a pretty standard hotel, it is very, very close to the Port. You could walk there, but they don't allow it--you must be driven in, so get a taxi and pay $5 or so for the ride of a few minutes.

Convenient location: a popular bagel store is across the street, a Walgreens is down the block (heading toward the Port), while the Publix supermarket and shopping complex is within a ten minute a walk going the other direction toward the Embassy Suites hotel.
Overall a great value for the same type of lodging you'd find elsewhere.

  • Liked — Convenient location
  • Disliked — Bed could be larger. Supposed to be a queen; feels like a slightly larger full-sized bed.

We stayed at the hotel for one night both before and one night after after our cruise on the Carnival Miracle in December. Excellent shopping within walking distance - the nearby Total Wine store was awesome! The rooms were not fancy, but overall the hotel offered excellent value. We used a $10 off coupon on the hotel's site, bringing the cost of a one night stay to under $100, including taxes. At this price, the othel is definately worth considering.

The hotel was a pleasant surprise. We were staying for one night pre cruise. The rooms were clean, spacious and had new carpet and bedding. The cost was much less then any of the hotels in the area. The only drawback was there were no amenities. No ice, breakfast, etc. The hotel is located conveniently to shopping, grocery stores, drug stores and restaurants. All within short walking distance. The air conditioning worked well and we had lots of hot water for showers. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We stayed for 1 night precruise at this hotel. I was a little apprehensive because of lack of reviews for this hotel. But I did not have anything to worry about. We were greeted by a very friendly woman who checked us in very quickly. The hotel was going through some renovations/redecorating, but that did not interfere with our stay. Room was large and comfortable, with small kitchen facilities. Bathroom was good size. We were within walking distance to Publix where we bought some last minute items and water for our cruise. Lots of restaurants in area to choose from. We ate at a Thai restaurant that served wonderful food.

After a good nights sleep, we walked to a little diner nearby and had a great breakfast. We asked the desk clerk when we returned if she could get a cab for us. We came down at agreed time, checked out, and cab was waiting outside to take us to the Port. I would recommend staying here...it is no frills, but for one night, I cannot complain. Clean, comfortable stay.

Stayed in this hotel for a conference for four nights in March 2007.
Hotel is in a good location on 17th Street about two blocks from the Convention Center. There are many restaurants conveniently located within walking distance.

Check in was quick and efficient and the desk clerk was friendly. We had requested a room with two beds, were first given a room with a queen bed. Asked to have it changed to a room with two beds, which was done.

My non-smoking room was on the first floor. When I got out of the elevator, I noticed the odor of stale cigarettes in the hallway - it smelled like it was in the rugs.

The room itself had no odor. Upon entering, there is a small kitchenette with two burner stove, refrigerator, microwave, cabinet, coffee maker and sink. There were some dishes, mugs, glasses, silverware and a few pots and pans and a dishrag.

If you are staying more than one night, you'll need a roll of paper towels, tissues (none provided in the room!) and dishwashing detergent if you'll be using the utensils - no cleaning supplies are provided. If you use the coffee maker and use your own coffee, you'll also need coffee filters. You'll also need to bring your own shampoo and any conditioner or hand lotion you use- the only toiletries provided in the bathroom were toilet paper and soap.

The room was very clean - carpeting is the first thing I look at and the carpets were very clean, as was the bathroom. There is one dresser with four drawers, a nightstand with one drawer and a small table.

I purchased internet access for $4.99 for the entire stay - a bargin. However, there was no connectivity in my room - no signal at all on my laptop. The desk clerk gave me a phone number to call and I was on the phone for 20 minutes with someone trying to see if the problem was my laptop before finally saying he would send a signal boost and see if it helped. I went to dinner, came back and indeed had internet access restored. I just wished he hadn't wasted a 20 minute cell phone call when he could have tried boosting the signal first.

There also is no shuttle service provided by this hotel to the airport or cruise terminal, but they have a car service they can call for you - it was $12 plus tip from the hotel to the airport. The Trolley stops next door and for 50 cents you can get a ride to the beautiful beach.

The hotel was quiet as was the room and the air conditioning worked well.

If staying for more than one night, you won't have any cleaning done - you'll have to make your own bed and take your towels down to the desk to change them. You can add "refreshening" service for $5.00, but that doesn't include changing sheets, etc.
If that doesn't bother you, this is a fine choice of a hotel. It is perfect for a pre or post cruise night.
