“Nice hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We stayed here firts week of October. As soon as I checked in (with great spped and charm from the desk clerk), I asked a couple tourist questions. He was quick to answer and provide additional info or me to make whatever choices I decided. The rooms are not huge but are adequate wiwth the micro, fridge, etc. Our room had a small balcony which was a nice feature. The breakfast buffet is great - many choices and well-prepared. We spent the evening in the bar where, Mtt, the bartender entertained us until we decided to go to bed. Matt was friendly, served good drinks and has a quick dry humor - great fun. I read the corriders are "dark and dingy"; yes, they are a bit dark but we didn't spend time in the corriders anyway.

Room Tip: ask for one with a balcony

Once a year I stay at this hotel on business for the international boat show. While it certainly isn't a resort it is a perfect location. The rooms are comfortable with a fridge, microwave, and flat screen TV.
Best of all are the people. They are always upbeat and smiling. On check in this time Aznie at the front desk and Carolina, the manager, made the my early morning arrival a very pleasant start to a long day. I always enjoy seeing Rose during the breakfast buffet who remembers me every year. And they do not try and take advantage of the business travelers who come to work the boat show, something that can't be said of the surrounding "resorts".

I booked this hotel vau Hotwire.com and got a nice rate. Beware you have to pay a parking fee of 10 dollar to park your car in the hotel garage.

We got a room at the pooldeck, probably due to the fact we were travelling with kids. The corridor from the parking to our room was dark and smelly, some extra lights and renewed painting are needed. Our room was a bid small for 4 guests due to a large cabinet with flatscreen, coffeemaker, micro and fridge. The bathroom was also small and needs an updated. Roomcleaning was fine.

The first day the pool wasn't clear and looked dirty (hotel was very busy) but the next morning it was clean. The complementary breakfast is great and one of the best we got in a Best Western Hotel. You will find the nice beach of Ft lauderdale one walking distance, the location of this hotel is excellent.

In general god value for your mony due to the breakfast and location.

Though this property is neither new nor luxurious, it provides comfortable accommodations for a reasonable price. While it is not directly Oceanfront, the beach is but a couple of steps away.

Do not be put off by the somewhat dark and dingy interior hallways, the rooms are updated and feature not only large flat-screen TVs, but also a very much appreciated microwave and refrigerator as well as the usual coffee maker, capable of making some pretty bad coffee. But have no fear...the managers have gone above and beyond to provide a surprisingly opulent breakfast buffet for a "free" offering. This meal can be enjoyed for a lengthy amount of hours, either indoors or on the adjacent outdoor pool deck. This is truly an unexpected upgrade and most appreciated feature of this Best Western. Finally, all of the front desk staff are both very accommodating and among the friendliest that I have ever encountered during my many days on the road...reason enough to return when my travels again take me to Ft. Lauderdale.

Room Tip: Be aware that many of the rooms have a "back" door leading onto an exterior, shared balcon...

Stayed here while attending a professional conference nearby. The staff was very firendly, attentive and helpful. Very convenient location - Just a walk down the sidewalk to my conference. Staying at this Best Western saved us $200+ on the 2 night stay versus the "Conference Rate." It is an older facility but clean and well-maintained. Rooms are recently re-modeled with new bathrooms. Pleasantly surprised with quality. Very good value with many returning guests. I liked the lounge. All long term staff in the lounge and very friendly. Nice experience. No fitness facility on site.

Room Tip: Upper floors are more quiet.

We stayed for a night before our cruise. The hotel is in a great spot. It's about 15 mins from the FLL airport, and 10 mins from the port. The hotel was clean, had a great pool, very friendly staff, and a very delicious free hot breakfast buffet (bacon, eggs, toast, hot waffles, cereal, sausage, etc. and apparently even gluten free bread! I love when people think of food allergies). The wifi was free and very strong from our room on the 3rd (or was it 4th) floor. It was also very close to the beach (2 minute walk with no crossing streets), and a really good Mexican restaurant at the hotel next door. Dos Caminos, i think was the name. A bit pricey, but we saved a lot by choosing this hotel so it balanced out. I would definitely stay again before my next cruise. Thank you to the kind staff for being very kind and helpful.
