“THE BEST!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

My mom and myself stayed at this hotel in April and I can say hands down that this place was the Best I have stayed in thus far. I do not even know where to start. The hotel from the outside was very attractive. The lobby had a feng shui to it with its model of a zen waterfall. The room was really comfortable and cozy.House keeping actually clean and vacuum the room thoroughly. The breakfast was nice and the breakfast staff we so warm and friendly. Front desk smiles and greets you everyday. The location is close to nice and affordable shops as well as close to the airport (so you do not have to worry about being late for your flight). I felt safe because they had visible cameras and signs everywhere about safety to the customers possessions in the parking lot. My mom and I were impressed and will be returning to this location.

The property is clean, fairly well maintained, breakfast is good. Unfortunately the front desk staff are either unmotivated or untrained. Physical security in this marginal part of town could be better. During our stay over Memorial Day weekend, we counted at least 9 Fort Lauderdale Police Cars, lights on, within 1 block of the hotel... and that's just during daylight hours. Despite being an unfriendly part of town, the ground floor fire door to the hotel stairwell was unlocked, and the metal door had been bent so that it was physically impossible to close & lock the fire door... so basically, anyone from the street can walk into the hotel whenever they want. Nice.
Reserved through Priority Club with late check out. Had to nearly scream at front desk staff in order to be heard to check in, because the guy with the vacuum cleaner thought it would be best to just keep vacuuming the entryway at 4:30pm. The vacuum ran less than 10' from front desk during entire check-in sequence. Nice.
Reserved with late check out. Asked for late check out when checking in. Room keys stopped working at 1100 anyway, so locked out of room on day of departure.
In Room 224, the window-mount AC is incredibly loud, like 100dB. If it doesn't wake you up every time it kicks on, you have earplugs in.
Bed was good. Pillows small but there's an extra one. Linens on bed good, towels quite frayed. No 110V plugs on nightstands or "desk" for laptop or cell charger, you've gotta hunt for wall outlets. Phone was never turned on during our visit, despite calling front desk and asking them to activate phone in room. Nice.
There are too many options nearby; Candlewood, etc, to consider staying here again until they fix the continually open fire door on 1st floor and get some training for the front desk staff.

Room Tip: Since the entire hotel is accessible to anyone from the street, I'd probably avoid the first flo...

Being so close to the airport, and offering the bonus of a free airport shuttle, this hotel is perfect for short stays. I am always suspect of free shuttles, but this one did not keep us waiting. It ran on time to the hotel and back to the airport. The hotel was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was good, the air conditioning worked fine and the internet ran smoothly. The hotel is nicely appointed with plenty of light in the rooms. One thing I cannot stand is a hotel room that is poorly lit - we did not have that problem here. The ONLY reason I gave this property four circles instead of five is because of the location. While it's handy to be close to the airport, the hotel is in a commercial area and right on a very busy highway/road. It would not stop me from staying there again, tho. It was a pleasant property and if you're looking for an above average place to spend a night or two in Fort Lauderdale that is close the airport, I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal than this hotel.

Hotel is a few years old but still very fresh and clean. Staff are excellent. Everett gets a special mention for his customer service. He arranged to get us into a room early after returning from a cruise and helped store our luggage until the room became available.

Cost us only $6 taxi plus tip to get from the cruise port to the hotel! Hotel provides free shuttle to the airport only.

$2 day pass for the Fort Lauderdale "trolley" makes it easy to get to the beach and boardwalk.

Breakfast is predictable but decent.

Stayed 2 nights pre cruise. Everything was OK other than we were given a disabled facility room having requested a normal king. Property seems older but was well maintained. Breakfast was Ok. Other than that everything else was typical Holiday Inn. Nothing outstanding and nothing poor.

They have it all. Large comfortable family rooms (for what you pay), a gym, a great pool, free drinks at night and a free breakfast in the morning. Don't forget the two free shuttle runs...It all comes with the room. The shuttle to the beach is right around the corner and the service was excellent. For the price, a perfect place to stay.

We were very happy with our choice of stay between our flight and our cruise. The hotel was clean and airy. The pool was very well looked after and had plants and interesting decorative touches. The breakfast was average in quality. The location of the hotel was good - across the street from a plaza type mall and a 15 minute walk (we did not have a car) from a really great dining experience at Anthony's Runway 84. We were in our room by 1 pm so thank you for the early check in. The shuttle from the airport to hotel was convenient. All in all, a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Rooms either overlook the pool and a forested area or the front entry and the street. We had the st...
