“Old Hotel, Nice Staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed 2 nights at the Roadway Inn. The night before my cruise and the night after.
The staff was very friendly and very busy.
This hotel caters to the cruise crowd and people were lined up 10 deep to check in.

They offer a shuttle service to both the Miami Port and the Ft. Lauderdale port as well as a shuttle to the airport.
The rooms were clea but small and 1960's style.
They have a pool and attached bar and grill called Marina 84.
A limited selection but good food. It's a sports bar with several monitors on each wall.
The wait staff was pleasant and attentive.

Room Tip: Reserve at least a week early.

We stayed here in 2014 & 2015 so we could park and not pay cruiseport garage prices. Large parking area for long-term. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Beds are good. Baths are small but adequate. Staff is very helpful. Pool area is nice. Includes breakfast. Particularly like the attached sports bar/restaurant for dinner/drinks night before departure without leaving property.
We also brought our 6 cruising companions this year and they liked it too. The cruiseport shuttle departure process is very organized - be sure to make shuttle reservation when you check-in to hotel.

Room Tip: No elevators, so choose ground floor if you don't want to carry luggage up. Rooms on the courtya...

Over all the stay was acceptable, Check in was slow and disjointed, the Bathroom was not as Handicap Accessible as it could and should have been, I would stay there again as it was convenient and provided easy transport to the Miami Cruise Terminal.

We were delighted with our stay. The motel is older, but the rooms have been updated and are perfectly satisfactory and have all the amenities one would expect in a motel of this category. The pick up at the airport was efficient and the shuttle to Port Everglades was extremely well organized - the best we've ever encountered for a pre-cruise stay. The breakfast was fine (although we weren't overly picky since we knew we'd be having a tasty lunch on the ship in a few hours). We would definitely stay here again before a cruise. The only negative I can think of is that there didn't seem to be anything to do within walking distance - so we just watched television and ate the dinner we had brought along.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor - if you have heavy suitcases you may want to request this floor since I...

I booked this hotel through HotelNParking.com as I wanted a place before and after a cruise where I could park my car. The hotel is quite dated but the wifi is included and we only needed a place to crash. The "free" breakfast is not worth your time. They actually use a ticket system to get in and post a person at the door to enforce it. Why anyone who is not a guest would try to get in is beyond me. Neither the selection nor the quality is worth it, but they are sure to let you know that tips are accepted!

Biggest disappointment was on our return. Despite being told by the person at the desk on my first night that the shuttle runs until midnight, my call at 11:35 was met with the news that the shuttle wasn't running because the last call was at 11:30. So my wife and I get in a cab for the ride to the hotel, and as we are leaving we see the hotel's shuttle bus at the side of the curb, just leaving! By that time I was hooked for a $22.00 cab fare. When I got there to check in and mentioned that the shuttle indeed WAS at the airport, the person behind the desk (jorsen according to our receipt) claimed to have tried to call us and left a message, but this wasn't true at all, there were no messages.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. The first was well beyond our expectations. the second visit was not near as good. Their shuttle service from the airport and to the cruise port was great. Staff were generally very pleasant.

Our room this time around had severe issues with the air conditioner. Simply put it did not produce cool air in 85 degree weather plus. When reported to the front desk we were told that it would be looked into (at end of our visit) but we did not get the impression from the desk personnel that this would really happen.

Our biggest concern is two fold. The computer system was down during our entire stay and everything was recorded on paper and then manually inputted. When we returned home and received our credit card statement we have been double charged for our stay. When I contacted the hotel directly we were told that "Diego" (finance manager) had to take care of this issue. We were told he would not be back for 3 days. I called back and eventually got to his voice mail and left him a long description of the problem including our invoice number. I asked him to return my call. Diego, a week later, has never returned my call. The issue is now in the hands of our credit card company and they report that they have not received any documentation from him either.

We really have enjoyed this hotel up until this happened to us. We referred good friends or ours to this hotel and they had a poor experience with a moldy bathroom. Don't know if I would stay here again with cruising from Fort Lauderdale. I only really am asking for our bill to be straightened out and don't understand why the hotel has never called us back.

Room Tip: We were on the parking lot. It was quiet but ask for a room facing the pool.

The day room option is sweet - they pick you up from the airport and take you back. The rooms weren't fancy, but everything was clean. Burgers in the bar are good and the pool area is nice.

I deducted a star for the strictly managed, kind of lame continental breakfast and a star because you sometimes have to wait in a long line at the front desk as other reviewers have mentioned.
