My wife, daughter, and myself just returned from one week at the Beach Gardens and we were all completely satisfied. Rooms are very clean (we had 2 queens with small fridge, microwave and coffee maker), all of the staff were very polite, helpful and courteous, beds and pillows were quite comfortable, pool is well maintained and clean, the grounds are beautiful and very relaxing, cleanest BBQ I have ever seen at a hotel, A/C worked like a charm, beach towels, chairs and umbrellas are available on a first come first serve basis, free parking is included. All in all a perfect place to stay when visiting Fort Lauderdale Beach area.
Small suggestions to the hotel would be: wall mounted soap dish or a corner rack in the shower for bar of soap and shampoo bottles, a bathroom fan, a toaster, and small table and chairs outside the room.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.
