“Pre-Cruise Bargain!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My wife & I stayed here the night before our cruise, and were very pleased with our stay. The complimentary shuttle service from the airport & to the cruise port was very nice, and we had no problems with either service. The hotel is very pleasant, and has a nice garden area to sit and relax in. Our dinner at the restaurant was good, and we enjoyed the casual atmosphere. Check in was a little slow, but it was VERY busy when we got there, and there were at least 4 clerks at the desk trying to get everyone checked in as quickly as possible. Great value for the price - we would stay here again.

Offered free shuttle to/from airport to cruiseport. Free shuttle had limited availability. Hotel is older, but maintained. Not located convenient to grocery or drugstore. Arranged for paid shuttle service to grocery and drugstore. Average breakfast for hotel of this type. On-site mini-mall is overpriced but well-stocked. On-site restaurant served mainly fried foods.

My husband and I stayed here before and after a cruise. Good place to stay for the price. Free shuttle service worked out great. Short wait times to and from all places even when the port was very busy. The restaurant is average. Live band that was there was pretty good, just too loud for my liking. Did not swim, but the pool looked clean and inviting. Breakfast is average for this type of hotel. Overall a good place to stay before and after a cruise.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the pool and lobby area

We had booked a Caribbean cruise from Fort Lauderdale and hoped to find a hotel where we could spend the night before embarking while parking our car there. Everything we looked at (including the packages offered by our cruise line) cost almost as much as our cruise! We were pretty discouraged until we read the reviews on Tripadvisor of this location. We had never stayed in a Rodeway Inn before and had previously (and wrongly) thought of it as a motel for truckers. This location was just what we needed. We had a nice clean room, a complimentary breakfast, parking for 9 nights plus a shuttle back and forth from the cruise terminal. Friendly, but efficient front desk staff were knowledgeable and courteous. The hotel has a very nice, well-stocked gift shop with very reasonable prices. The shuttle service was a real life-saver. (We had never been to Fort Lauderdale and would have great difficulty in negotiating the mammoth Port Everglades port in a car by ourselves. Besides, it was pouring rain when we embarked and it was a great stress reliever to be driven right up to where we needed to go.) Upon our return, all we had to do was call the shuttle and we were picked up and returned to the hotel so quickly that we were able to get a few more hours on the road home than we had originally planned. Another great perk was that by showing our room key, we got a 10% discount at a local Cuban restaurant (Don Arturo's) which was excellent. If we cruise from Fort Lauderdale again, and we certainly hope to, we will definitely stay at the Rodeway Inn and Suites.

We needed to overnight before a cruise, and this place fit the bill at about half the price of other hotels nearby. This is a older, dated two storey motel-style resort, a bit worn at the edges, but they have done a reasonable job of keeping it looking presentable. It's cheap and cheerful, clean and comfortable. The breakfast (included in the price of the room) was quite all right. (Who needs lavish when you're going to be on a cruise ship in a few hours?)
We'd certainly stay there again, but next time we'd probably skip the free shuttle to the port -- it was all a bit complicated with times to be there and announcements and waiting around. I'd probably shell out for a cab, as the hotel is quite close to the hotel.
The Rodeway is as good a value as you're going to find in FLL.

They could organize their shuttle service better. We waited 2-3 hours waiting-but we finally got to the ship. They could have given us a time to come down from our rooms. This was Jan. 31, 2015 we were there. Your travel date doesn't go back that far. I just received this mail May 12, 2015.


Room Tip: Everything was ok except the shuttle service.
