“Completely adequate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Stayed here for one night before flying out of Miami at the end of our trip.
Quite basic but that is not a complaint as it was only $65 for a night I think we paid,
Everything was clean and tidy from the cups in the cupboard to the pool. Towels and bathroom immaculate.
Nice little BBQ area too which we didn't use but would of if we were there for longer.
Short 5 minute walk to the beach front where all the cafes and restaurants are and a short 5 minute drive to Las Orlas Street.
The lady when we booked in was so lovely and helpful and allowed us to check out at our pleasure. She also recommended a beautiful restaurant called Casablanca where we had a wonderful meal to round off our fab holiday.

We stayed for 14 days at the Summerland Suites. It was very tight and clean. Angela the hostess is very nice and helpful. If you need advise where to go for dinner or what to do she helps you and gives you coupons so you will get a discount. The rooms are big,clean also a little kitchen and every day you will get new towels. The day we left we could stay
longer in our rooms for free(because of our flight late at the evening). We had a great experience and we will definitely recommend this hotel to our friend and family. Great prize for what you get!

When looking at budget hotels cleanliness is always top of mind and in this regard Summerland Suites cannot be faulted. We stayed in a 1 bedroom studio which gave us loads of space. It's super close to the beach and there's free parking for your car. It's nothing flash but neither is the price, it's a great budget option close to the action and very clean.

Very friendly and helpfull people at the frontdesk/office. The will advise you what to visit in FL. The rooms are quite big and clean. Housekeeping will clean the floor, change towels and change your bed every day (exept for sunday) The beach boulevard is very close to the complex. In my opion one of the best (budget) location in Ft. Lauderdale. Located in a quite neighbourhood, no passing/honking cars. The only downside is the very old interior. You can clearly see that everything is painted over with white paint to make it look "fresh". Almost all windows can be opened and are cleared from insects with insectscreening for the windows. 2 airco units for bedroom and living.

Pros:

1. Close to the beach - 1.5 blocks away
2. 1 bedroom suits are fairly spacious
3. Fully equipped kitchen with pots / pans / plates / etc...
4. Clean - rooms are cleaned well and towels always fresh
5. BBQ Grills on the property so you can do some grilling.
6. Beach chairs available to borrow
7. Price - hotel was fairly priced
8. 10 minute walk to the nightlife "action" - but far enough so you can relax
9. Publix grocery store is about 1 mile a way -


Cons:
1. Poorly decorated
2. A little outdated
3. Pool a little small

We did all of our grocery shopping the first day at Publix - and did all of our cooking at the suite
Saved a lot of money on eating out.

The first thing that struck us was the size of the suites which are bigger than you'd expect at that price bracket with a separate bedroom, bathroom, lounge and kitchenette. The front desk lady was excellent to deal with, very efficient yet welcoming and knowledgeable.

The air con worked well despite the oppressive heat and humidity.

The Summerland Suites are a short walk of 2-3 blocks down to the beach and is a short drive North of where all the actual Fort Lauderdale action is. However, the beach up this end is really beautiful and didn't feel overly busy at any time.

The pool is a decent size although we didn't use it.

Overall I'd stay here again for the value and size of the rooms although detracting factors are the lack of homeliness due to the white tiled floors throughout the suite.

Room Tip: Don't go to the nearby outdoor restaurant we were recommended by front desk. Its not very good a...

We stayed here for two nights. The suites were very basic, seemingly decorated in the 1980's by someone with no taste. However, they are in an excellent location near the beach, The rooms were very ckean, with good lighting. There was a king-sized bed and a single. There were three closets. The bathroom had good towels and a good shower, but no toiletries were provided. I was annoyed that local and toll-free calls made from the room were 50 cents each. The receptionist in the tiny office was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms offer a bit more privacy, though you need to carry your luggage up.
