“Not bad for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2014

Convenient location for walking on the beach or shopping. The room was larger than I expected with a small kitchenette separate from the bedroom. Nice outside sitting area with free wifi. While a little rundown, it was clean and safe. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: While the rooms do not have wifi, public area does.

Stayed here with a friend for a night, and rebooked one more night, as we really felt welcomed. Brian from the reception were a great help more than once in directing us to the things we should see in Fort Lauderdale.

The place is not luxurious in any way, and could use a hand here and there, but overall we liked it, and wouldn't mind staying here again next time we go to Fort Lauderdale.

I have stayed at quite a few 2-3 star hotels in the Fort Lauderdale area and I'm not that picky. Usually if the floor is clean enough and the sheets, towels and pillowcases are tolerable, I may write a somewhat less than favorable review but I will stay....

For the 1st time ever I checked into a hotel and walked out within 10 minutes wanting to get a full refund but refused to stay whether or not I got my money back...

I wanted to be on FLL beach this time and decided to book a hotel on the beach. Parked, checked in, walked into the room and refused to even put my bag down...

The agent was polite but there was nothing at all positive about the room. There were dead insets on the floor... Yes insects... Not one bug but several... Don't know if the sheets were clean because I didn't check.... The spread seemed rumpled and uneven as if someone may have jus laid on top of it and in every corner was what seemed like insect droppings...

I contacted the 3rd party website with whom I booked and informed them that I was leaving and did not want to see other rooms because if they considered this room fitvto check in I didn't want to see another.

The location was not the best for FLL beach but was good enough for a quick walk to the beach.

Value for the area was very good but for the hotel was way overpriced.

They decided not to refund me because I didn't give them a chance to show them another room and recover but I wouldn't have stayed if they refunded me and paid me extra to stay.

I informed the 3rd party through which I booked that not only should it not be listed as a 2 star hotel but it shouldn't even be in their portfolio...

Our family stayed here for the 4th of July weekend. The location was great and we enjoyed all the festivities. The hotel was across from the beach and very close to all restaurants and activities. It was an older building but clean and the front desk manager was great. It was well worth the money. $79 for the weekend for a nice apartment. I was pleased with our stay.
