“An affordable option for cruise travelers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Considering many travelers have a pre-set budget for each aspect of their vacation, this hotel will not break the bank. Most hotels that are convenient to Port Everglades (this particular hotel is approximately 5 miles straight down SR 84 to the port!) average $125 to over $500 per night. We paid $79 plus tax for a clean, quiet & well staffed hotel. It was also close to I-95 which makes finding the location very simple. It's not the Waldorf-Astoria, but you get what you pay for. I personally would rather save my money to spend during my cruise!

A great choice for budget-minded travelers! Clean, convenient to the cruise port (a straight shot down SR 84!), friendly & helpful staff & easy to get to from I-95. It's not a 5-star property, but if you would rather save your money to spend on your cruise, this is a good choice.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We stayed one night, pre-cruise, March 15, 2013. I was a bit leery based on other reviews and actually tried to find another hotel. We arrived late - after 11:00 pm; Laurie at the front desk was quite friendly and had our rooms ready in just minutes. The room had a slight odor to it - not sure what it was; we turned on the A/C and it took care of it. The next morning, we went next door to Lil Reds BBQ and had an awesome breakfast. Nice pool area on one side; my husband and I enjoyed the morning sunshine while waiting for my son and his friend to get ready. Downside of our stay was the 45 minute wait for a cab to get us to Port Everglades despite several phone calls.

Stayed one night. Room was quite, bed comfortable, check-in quick. Shower stall was clean, water hot, towels better than normal for a 6. TV still the old CRTV and channels limited. Room had slight odor especially when the heat was turned on.
$69. senior seemed a little high.
Good BBQ joint next door.
Would stay again.

Room Tip: Recommend second floor room.

The Visitor Service personal "Blake" is the only nice feature about the place. What a great guy to bad that is the only nice thing I have to say about this place, because OMG what a dump!!! This is not a place you want you dog to sleep at. The bathroom had hair in the shower, on 3 of the four towels, the toilet to be flushed twice after any usage. The blanket was ripped and had burn holes in it. I found a pair of women's bedroom slippers under the bed. The hallways smell, you and hear your neighbors on all four sides.

Room Tip: Keep Looking !!

We had made reservations for two bedrooms before we arrived, and when we showed up they said we only had one reservations for one room.

When we got the second room it was a non smoking room and the stinch of stale smoke lingered in the room. The room telephone was broken and busted without the hotel infomation on it. When i went to the front desk and the staff seemed upset at me for wanting a phone that works. They gave me three different phones that did not work and told me there was nothing they can do about giving me a room phone that works.

the bathroom had mold on the walls and poop stains in the tolit.

My wife and i selected this motel to stay an extra day and save money,outside looks reasonably clean,but the interior corridor carpeting was not good shape, the first room that we were given had a strong odour and we went back to the desk,we were given another room,odours as well but less so,we would have liked some where to sit outside for a smoke but the area by pool is locked at 9,we went out to back parking lot only to be intimidated by a couple of punks with a pitbull! We went back into room and fell asleep,about midnight orso someone was trying to get in our room,it turned girl at the desk didn't input that we had switched and room was rented to someone else,we got very little sleep and in the morning we asked for and received about half our money back.Never again!

Room Tip: Don't think there are any good rooms here!
