“Start of Cruise vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Had a very pleasant stay there prior to our cruise.
Hotel was close to the port and right near the beach.

The bartender Sarah was very nice, friendly and interesting.
She was helpful and told us about the Trolley and the mall.
Service at front desk friendly and helpful getting us a cab to the port.

I stayed at the BW Oceanside Inn for 3 nights over the Christmas holiday. I found the hotel thanks to TripAdvisor and thought it was the right combination of value and convenience to beach! You were all correct - the hotel, although not shiny and new, is very clean and conveniently located. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. We arrived early, and were able to check in the room at 1:30. The room itself was clean, well-lit, beds comfortable, plenty of pillows. The bathroom, although not super fancy, was clean. I wish there was a bathroom exhaust fan though. Flat screen TV with HBO. The best part of the hotel was the close proximity to the beach - about a 5 minute walk brings you right to the very large beach! You can also walk about 15-20 minutes and reach restaurants, shopping, etc. There is covered parking that costs $10/per day. That is not unusual especially in a beach resort area where parking is so scarce anyway. The included breakfast was a nice treat - much better than just cereals and bread. There were scrambled eggs, corned beef hash, sausage and ham. Christmas morning was biscuits and sausage gravy, which made my southern husband very happy. The pool was incredibly WARM, which I personally loved. I would definitely stay at the BW again if I visit FLL.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the POOL. We were on the back side of the hotel, which was very noisy due to...

We stayed here 1 night before our Caribbean cruise! Ideally situated close to the port, airport and beach of Fort Lauderdale! Clean and spacious rooms! Breakfast not that special. Friendly staff! Small but nice pool and sunbathing area.

What a wonderful experience we had for 12 days at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Hotel in Fort Lauderdale.
From entering as a walk ins to a smiling, knowledgeable and helpful Paulina and Kathy, to getting a fair and honest rate from the high spirited and charming Teresa, the Front Desk Manager to great Arnold Palmers "created" (using whiskey sour mix")
by the food and beverage manager Rose, our initial impression could not have been better.
We had such a good time in the bar we didn't want to go to our room.

During next 12 days Serina and Aznie, in the front desk operation, only build in one positive experience after another.
There was NEVER a time we went down or called them up for help that we didn't get five star treatment always with a smile. They sent faxes for us, had our room cleaned when we requested each and every day, gave wonderful directions to novices traveling.
They made it all just so much easier.

Breakfast under the supervision and execution of Rose and hosted by the delightful, charming and personable Leila made the start of our day special.
Leila has such an extensive knowledge of past music legends that I, as a native of the Rock and Roll City in America, added to my trivia fact bank many fold.
The food, by the way, was fantastic - hot, fresh and very tasty - and such an extensive menu.
Never had I experienced such a variety, different every day, in any hotel offering complimentary breakfast. This only added to the value of our experience.

We are leaving Friday for a weeks cruise but plan to return to Fort Lauderdale's Best Western Plus Oceanside for a few more days to complete our business goals before returning home.
Now can we can also add spending more time with new the friends we have made.

Room Tip: If the swim teams are there when you are visiting ask to not stay on their floor, just too much hig...

We arrived at about 11am straight off the Grand Princess cruise ship. We were able to go straight to our room. It was a lovely room with two double beds and good sized bathroom. Wide tv and coffee maker. The hotel is a bit tired in places but good value compared to the surrounding larger hotels.We were soon sitting by the pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
It is a nice area with flat walking everywhere. It is a 20 minute walk to restaurants, Bubba Gump, a Greek and Italian amongst others. All good value. There were interesting things to do, water taxi, jungle queen trip, sea fishing trips and the Swimming Hall of fame. The beach is just a short walk behind the hotel, it was well used at weekends by local people using the BBQs on the beach and the handball nets. A very good atmosphere.
After a good nights sleep we went down to the included breakfast which was great. Hot and cold buffet, fruit and three waffle makers to make your own waffles.
We stayed there for 5 days and used both the water taxi, 50cent trolley and the local bus €1.80
The reception would always get a taxi for you. Taxi fare from the Port is $17 approx.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the pool would be best.
