5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2008

I travel very often and was very weary when I booked this motel but the reviews made me give it a chance. The America's Best Inn - Fort Lauderdale Airport is a one of the best motels I have stayed in. My daughter and I arrived at 1030pm and were greeted with a smile and 2 bottles of water (which we needed) and a helping hand to move our luggage if needed. We stayed in the efficiency and it was very nice, everything looked brand new. The kitchenette was separate from the bedroom area and had a microwave, fridge, table with 2 stools and counterspace/sink with a coffee maker. The carpet was very clean (maybe Berber) the room smelled great, the bed was comfy, no old dark bedspreads here, and it even had an actual closet, an ironing board, brand new a/c, and a workspace desk with free Wi-Fi that never quit. The fountain in the courtyard is so quaint and although I did not have time to go to the pool, it looked very well maintained and the owners were awesome and genuinely care about their guest and the motel appearance. The breakfast is light but a good assortment, muffins, danish, fruit, cereal, juice, milk, coffee. I am a very picky person and I could not find anything wrong with this motel. I had a rental car and the location was perfect we were 20-25 mins from Miami, very close to the beach and 5 min from the airport. The America's Best Inn has made me a guest for life-if you are looking for a great place to sleep, good location, and sincere service and can do without the high prices for a health club, valet parking and room service then this is the place. As I stated before, we will be back!!

We were locked in to stay one night because by the time we got there it was too late to cancel (needed 24hrs because I booked on the internet - now I know why). There was a frog in our room when we got there and the room wasn't even ready. This hotel room made us want to keep our shoes on and not even use the bathroom in the room. I wouldn't recommend this to even my ex-husband-although he may have stayed there a time or two. Very disappointing choice because the photos made it look like a great place to stay.

I stay in Fort Lauderdale often and the buget hotels scare me. This Hotel is near everything with easy Hwy access. the hotel is clean with a great bed, and a free beer at check in. Only 5 Min to the Airport or Port Everglades.....don't pay more for less stay here...the Picture on the heading is not correct...

I had a friend find an inexpensive hotel I could stay two nights at while in Fort Lauderdale for an interview. At first impression, I was curious what my stay would be like. Immediately, I started to see that my stay in Fort Lauderdale would be a memorable one. This is certianly one of the best places I have ever stayed. The service was impressionable. The frienliness made me feel like I was visiting with family. Horaaay, to one of Americas best small family establisments. Americas Best Inn certianly delivers family friendly service that the big establishments can not deliver. When it came time to decide to take the Fort Lauderdale position, I factored in the local hospitality, it was an easy choice. America's Best Inn is my choice for the best Fort Lauderdale, Florida hotel value.

This hotel was the closest to the airport and most affordable for a short night. Still expensive for a motel, but the stay was OK. The bed was clean and comfortable enough, the fridge was quiet, and the free internet connection was a nice surprise!The bathroom was small, dated and not perfectly clean along the walls, but supplied with ample clean towels. The room was somewhat noisy. Overall, OK.
Very bad and unfriendly cab service (Yellow) both in the evening and at 4:30 am.

My husband and I stayed at this motel/hotel/inn the day before and the day after our cruise to the caribbean. We were delighted at how sweet the owners were. We had an issue and needed to be let into our room earlier than check in time and they had no problem letting us in, which really helped us out.

It was three minutes from the cruise port and three minutes from diners. If you're looking for luxury, don't stay here, but if you're going on a cruise, this place will bring you back to a sweet reality. It's a good price for a room and they had a couple of cool pictures on the walls of the rooms we stayed in.

The next time we go on a cruise, we're going to stay here.

  • Liked — Affordability and closeness to the port.
  • Disliked — the rooms were kind of small, but not a problem.
