“Great Pre Cruise or Air Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We have stayed at this Hotel 3 times & one more coming up in April. The price is right, rooms are adequate & clean. Breakfast has a good variety & the shuttle is a bonus. Very organized for departures & make sure everyone leaves on time.

Room Tip: We stay in a deluxe room which is on the ground floor

I will preface this by saying I am not a motel type of girl by nature. Nor do I have 5-star expectations, however in the past I have stayed away from anything categorized as a motel. I know... stereotyping... shame on me.
My family and I were disembarking from our cruise at 9:00 am, but our flight did not leave until 7:00 pm. Everyone was exhausted from our trip and had no desire for another excursion or sitting at the airport for 10 hours.
Our concierge on the ship printed off information about Rodeway Inn's Day Pass. We ended up paying about $65 after taxes and fees.
I was very pleasantly surprised! The lobby was very bright and clean. The gift shop was fantastic! It had such quirky, cute little gift ideas. I have to give a shout-out to Cory (I think that was his name) who was working the gift shop. He was super friendly and hilarious. My 40-year old husband loved getting carded for his beer (yes they sell alcohol in the gift shop).
The room was very nice. It was apparent that it has been recently updated- fresh paint, granite countertops, safe, coffee machine and furniture/bedding that was still in excellent condition. Most importantly the bathroom was NOT gross! The shower was clean and it looked as if the bathroom had also been renovated.
They have an attached restaurant and bar. We ate there for lunch. The prices were reasonable and the food was good. My 10 and 7 year olds gave it a thumbs up.
They have a free shuttle to the airport. It was very convenient and only took about 10 minutes. The African-American gentleman (sorry I didn't catch his name) was uber friendly and extremely knowledgable about the area. He was giving us a driving tour of the area on the way to the airport that was very interesting.
I wouldn't really classify these as negatives, but thought I'd explain why I did not give the motel its 5th star. The motel's pool is just a standard rectangle-shaped pool. Nothing to write home about. Due to it being a motel we did find it a bit noisier, but this could have just been because we were trying to nap during the day. But you do hear a lot of slamming doors. Lastly, I will say the motel in general was very clean, but I found it strange that all the air conditioning units that stick out into the walkways had solo cups underneath catching dripping water. Not sure if this was due to the climate and condensation issues or if the units were just older.
Overall I'd highly recommend this, especially for a one-night stay or day pass. Not sure I'd stay here for an extended vacation unless I was just using it for sleeping purposes and not hanging out.

Stayed October 2014

On a positive this facility provides free shuttle service from both the airport and cruise ports. They also provide a free breakfast. The rooms are very basic but clean and sufficient for short term stays. They only negative was when returning from the cruise port we had to wait several hours to be able to access our room or pay an additional fee for early access. It was raining which did not afford us the opportunity to spend time exploring the area.

We stay here for one night. At that time we were in a group of 6 adults and 1 children.
We arrive at night around 08.30 PM. And we almost missed the room. Probably because of the integration system between 3rd party online booking website and their hotel system.

The room was good, cleaned very well and the bed was good as well. We got a proper sleep after 24 hours plus flight from Indonesia, and full day trip in Miami.
All rooms in this hotel is a Non-Smoking room.

The great thing about this hotel is : they provide a free shuttle from/to FLL Airport and from/to Port Everglades. Since almost of the occupants (at least while we're staying) are heading for a cruise.

We were so lucky to find this hotel online, otherwise we might lost somewhere in Fort Lauderdale.

Check in and out was easy. Our room was clean and fine for one night. The free wifi didn't work for us, but we got in around midnight and went to bed pretty quickly so it wasn't a huge inconvenience. The free breakfast was super packed and that was pretty annoying, but we did get in and get some food. It was a decent spread too, waffle machines, bagels, cereals, etc.

We did really enjoy the free shuttle to the cruise port. It looked like chaos and there were a ton of people waiting for shuttles, but the guy running it kept it all organized and there were a lot of different shuttles going to each ship. They even have a store so you can buy snacks and sodas and even liquor before boarding your cruise.

This place is a well run machine. I would highly recommend to anyone staying the night before a cruise.

Realizing that Rodeway is the least expensive member of the Comfort Inn Chain, we weren't prepared for the splendid. First, the usual - the room was comfortable, the breakfast - nothing special.
What was special was the way that they had their act together. We booked at the Rodeway because they offered a shuttle from the airport and to the cruise dock.
We were there for two nights. The first morning there were over 275 people attempting to board 6 ships. The second morning there were close to 300 people boarding 5 ships. They guaranteed that "everyone would be on board in order to have lunch" and they were true to their word. They had enough shuttles which took luggage and passengers.
Check in and checkout went enormously fast.
We will be using them again on our next cruise out of Fort Lauderdale.

We booked the Rodeway Inn on Rt. 84 for a park and sail. As the trip got closer, we started to look at the reviews of past guests and were very nervous. But we said, it's only one night. The reviews were so far from the truth, that we were amazed!! The front desk check in process was quick and courteous. The young lady (I think her name was Louise) was so friendly. When we got to our room, we were very surprised. It was large, very clean and had all the amenities that we were promised in the website. The only drawback was the restaurant (Marina 84) next door. The food was awful and the service was worse. The next morning we were scheduled for the 10:30 shuttle to the cruiseport. There had to be 100 people waiting. Along with about 200 bags. But by 11:30 we were on our way to the ship. The gentleman who organized the shuttles was very efficient, even if his jokes were kinda corny. The shuttle drivers did a great job. When we got off the ship to return to the hotel, the shuttle was waiting for us. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good! All in all, I would definitely recommend the Rodeway Inn for your next trip. Just find another place to have dinner.

Room Tip: Get the superior accommodation.

SUPER CRUISERS> Great to have you here! We do thank you for staying with us and the compliment about our staff, FREE shuttle service. and Clean rooms with many great amenities! We accommodate many guests each evening, and we strive to make their stay a satisfying one. The cute chubby guy, who talks on the microphone give lots of information about your cruises, port, security, shuttles and even entertains the guest while they wait to board and checking in/out. This is the number one reason we have such a high satisfaction and repeat guest. He gets everybody onboard the ship on time for lunch! Unlike other hotels that give little to no announcements and make everybody wait in line outside for the shuttle. What make us great is for the value of a quality room you get super Location, service and transportation with many great amenities. We have the best organize shuttle service to and from the airport cruise port and our hotel. Other hotels charge $10 to go the port it takes them till 3pm and won’t pick you up. We all strive for 100% guest satisfaction. Thank you for traveling see you soon!
