“We lucked out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

My husband, 5 month old baby, and I were looking for a beach side place to stay and we totally lucked out when we found the Snooze on tripadvisor. We stayed in Room 201 and had a Deluxe Oceanview room which was worth every penny. The view was amazing and it was a great location. We could walk to the beach and great restaurants. Casablanca, Atlantic Surf Club, and Primanti Brothers were all thumbs up! The owner was very nice and free parking was a plus. We would definitely stay again!

So Miami only in Fort Lauderdale. Retro chic. Affordable. Right on the beach (across the street actually) We got the king room with the ocean view and what a beautiful view. I love the colors in the room. The bed was comfortable. We stayed 2 nights. Walking distance from Las Olas Blvd and the beachfront scene where all the beautiful people gather. Joe at the front desk was super nice and helpful. The air conditioner in room 301 was awesome. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 301 is an ocean view king room. Beautiful.

Got in real late but had no problem letting ourselves in using their late arrival system. The FAQ section on their website is very accurate and should be read. Snooze isn't the Ritz and doesn't pretend to be. What it is is honest value and good care from proprietors who show pride of ownership. We liked the location as it was just a stones throw away from the main drag evening goings-on. Close enough but just far enough too :-)
Ours was the basic hotel room. It had the basic necessities and the CVS (variety store) was close by. We appreciated the free wi-fi that allowed us to stay connected (and write this review :-)

What a great little hotel! We are here right now. Right across the beach. Rooms are big, bright, modern, super clean and comfy. Slightly north of the heavy tourist area of restaurants and bars (about 5 short city blocks). So your big advantage is the beach is not super packed. Ski-do rentals right in front and a fabulous restaurant next door. Staff is super courteous and friendly.

We stayed at snooze for two nights prior to a cruise in February 2014. Our flight was delayed coming from snowy Toronto and so we arrived in FLL quite late. This was not a problem, as our key was kept in a key safe on our doorknob and we had been provided with both an email and a phone call prior providing us with our room number and code. What a great touch considering many boutique motels require earlier check-in. Our room, 404, was perfect. Though not advertised as an ocean view room it certainly has a great view from the window of the ocean! It was large and very spacious - kept immaculately clean. Great decor with white and blue accents. We were happy to have access to a coffee maker and kitchen necessities. It was perfectly quiet for sleeping - we had not a single issue with the room. Strong wifi signal at no extra cost was fab.



The staff at snooze were great: friendly and helpful without being overbearing in the least. The outdoor patio on the 2nd level is fabulous - spent our first evening enjoying the warm ocean breeze and a few bevvies. Also met a number of other travellers on this patio - a nice perk. Another great bonus for us was the Eggstatic Food Truck parked right at the motel from which we enjoyed a delicious organic breakfast! Not to be missed.



Thank you for your great hospitality - we look forward to a future stay at the delightful snooze!

Room Tip: Upper floors would be best.

my husband, daughter , grandson and I , stayed for 2 days before our cruise, the view was amazing, so close to ocean and walking distance to stores and restaurants, room was very clean and roomy, we had room with 2 king beds, fridge,toaster,coffeemaker,microwave, and a large
bathroom, parking included. enjoyed sitting on patio, small hotel, but very cozy and comfy, i think it should be called,the COZY HOTEL, no time to snooze when your on holidays.

Room Tip: we were on 3 floor in middle, no noise at all

Snooze is a modern take on the essentials needed for your home away from home. We believe traveling in style should be affordable without any hidden costs - just pay your room rate plus tax and that's it! We offer a clean, comfortable and modern room, plus add free parking, wifi, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. Keep in mind we offer the essentials so...No pool, no 24 hr service, no phones, no spa, no bell boy, no valet and no chocolates on your pillows. Why spend the extra money on extras you don't need? We are the last oceanfront Ft. Lauderdale hotel left with less than 20 rooms. There are plenty of "big box" branded hotels out there and we are proud we are not one of them. Snooze is located directly accross the street from Fort Lauderdale Beach next to the Westin and Ritz Carlton hotels. Direct Ocean View, Kitchenette and Hotel Rooms are available at the property. The airport (7 miles), cruise terminal (5 miles) and convention center (5 miles) are just minutes away. Wireless internet and parking are free of charge, while great food and entertainment are located steps away. ... more   less
