“Very good for getting to the cruise port”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel was packed with people checking in from the time we arrived until the time we departed. Even though they had four employees at the desk, the line never seemed to end. And there is good reason for this. The hotel seems to specialize in transporting its guests to departing cruises. With reasonable efficiency, they were able to transport a lobby full of guests to the various cruise ports they needed to get to during the course of the morning. Of course, this does create a very packed lobby and breakfast room with all of the departing cruisers and arriving guests. But if this is not the kind of atmosphere that bothers you, you can save up to $70-$80 by staying here the night before your cruise.

As for the hotel itself; the room was fine, the breakfast good, and the restaurant enjoyable. You will need a car for a longer stay as there is nothing to do in the immediate area.

By the way, Kudos to the hardest working desk personnel in the business.

We booked a room last minute for the night before our cruise. Room was clean and all we needed. Price was right and included the shuttle to the port. Shuttle folks could not have been better! Boyfriend lost his wallet and we had to go back to the hotel. Antoine was a gem; we found the wallet and he took us straight back to the port and was so understanding!I think I hugged him 3X!
upon return, Izzi was helpful and made us want to go back again!

Arriving late at night, the front entrance seemed dingy, and I was a bit concerned about what I might be getting into. However, the motel is funky, cheap, clean and cheerful. I did not know about the free airport and cruise shuttles before arriving (although I did not need them on this trip). I will be switching from the cruise hotel I've used in the past to this one.
Bottles of wine are sold in the lobby, along with snacks. There is a bar/restaurant on the premises. Breakfast was average, but there is a nice sitting area outside and the landscaping is pleasant.

Booked a King room for one night before cruise because of reasonable rate and free airport and cruise shuttle. Our experience stay at the Rodeway Inn was very pleasant one. This is not a fancy-dancy hotel but a motel. Like what others have stated, motel is run-down and does need a massive overhaul. The garden around pool was very tropical and well maintained. Wish we arrived earlier to enjoy the pool.
We didn't have to wait long for our airport shuttle to pick us up. Line to check in went quickly as possible, even with the long line.. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Bathroom had hair on toilet tank and tissue on the floor which I cleaned myself.
No TV since they had problems with service.
The breakfast bar was basic which had waffles, yogurt, fruit, cereal, bagels and toast. I burnt my hand on the hot coffee. Very crowded with all the guests grabbing a bite.
With over 200 guests needing shuttle service to the cruise pier, we had to wait. Was told that after the first run there would be a $5.00 per person charge for the shuttle. Thankfully after we waited for the third shuttle to take us to the pier, we weren't charged.

I recently stayed 2 nights at the Rodeway Inn, located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I was pleasantly surprised at my experience. The staff, from front desk to breakfast lounge, was attentive, friendly, and prompt to serve you. The place was clean inside and out. The location was great, near the highway, without the highway noise. The complimentary breakfast consisted of mostly bread products, but decent coffee, and outstanding service. I would stay there again.

This is an older hotel so don't exect luxury accommodations, but the value is is great. We had an inexpensive day room that we used for rest and showers, and a nice pool area where we relaxed during the day. The attached sports bar is large and comfortable and has a complete bar food menu so you don't really need to leave the property to eat and drink. There is also a nice gift shop with snacks and beer or wine is also available near the front desk. The staff was very efficient and courteous even during the crazy rush of cruise passengers coming and going. The shuttle was clean, free, well scheduled and picked us up promptly after we arrived at the cruise port. They use small trailers towed by the shuttle so you don't have to lug your luggage into the vehicle. They also dropped us off at the airport for our departure. I would highly recommend this hotel for a short stay or day room.
