Chose the Econo Lodge for the free pickup at the cruise terminal and transfer to the airport as we had a early flight the next day. We arrived at the cruise terminal on the 29th of Dec. Had made earlier arrangements to be picked up by the shuttle to the hotel. Shuttle on time, but the ride to the hotel was interesting. Going 65 in a 45 mph zone and 45 in a 30 mph zone. Braking to a stop the last 10 feet from a stop sign.
Hotel itself was ok. Did not take shoes off in the room. Unknown items on the floor. Bathroom water faucet was leaking. Looks like maintenance is being done to the hotel, but will take some time. Staff was very nice and helpful. Would stay again for an overnighter.

We just used this place for 1 night for a cheap place to avoid a DUI after going out to Wilton Manors nearby. It's a skeevy place. Roaches around the sink, I immediately stripped the bed of the comforter. Yes it is cheap but there are better options. It seems that there are shady people around too. Not a good choice.

By far the least expensive "name" branded place I could find the night before heading to Miami Beach, this facility wasn't glamarous, but not so bad. The public bus from Fort Lauderdale Airport (a lower cost alternative to MIA) got me to and from there easily. Traffic is heavy and crowded around the lodge, yet I was able to walk not only to a nice sports bar/restaurant, but even to Target and Winn-Dixie, and took advantage of the small but functional microwave and fridge in the room. I had not even requested these.

The "breakfast" was a bit better than most of its kind, including hot and tasty coffee. And the young clerk was at least friendly for a change, something not always found in an "econo"-my place.
Without doubt, costs are a concern to me. As long as this place keeps prices in check, I'll be back.

This hotel is right off the street along Federal Hwy. Had a room right across the car wash which was not so great, since it was very loud until the evening.
Pool was nice chilly. Room was good size.

Good for a transit stay, worth its money, we got it on a coupon rate, which was great!

The rug in our room (#111) was filthy. It didn't look dirty, but if you walked on it in bear feet, the soles of your feet would turn black. Not sure if there is more than one Econo Lodge in Ft Lauderdale, but the address of this one is 2949 N Federal Highway

this hotel was very well equipped with excellent linens and mattresses. Overall, it is a ok place, not 4 star, but very comfortable. Problem that I encountered was the theft of my cell phone. Although the mananger Mr Ali, did mail me the phone when it was "found", I have grave suspicions about the night clerk. When checking in after midnight, it took a veryVery long time for him to come let me in. I am not sure I wlll stay there again.
