“Weekend Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The staff at this hotel were very helpful and friendly. We reserved a king room with balcony/partial oceanview and were pleasantly surprised by how nice the view was. Request room 520. Parking was $10 per day which wasn't bad compared to other properties in the area (I feel parking should be inclusive no matter where your staying.) Internet & breakfast were complimentary. Breakfast was the standard free breakfast. Hotel is an older property and what I would call "no frills" but very clean and in a great location. Would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Request room 520 great view.

We stayed in hotel 10 days. There is nothing bad I can say about the time spent in this hotel. Let me describe the room: comfortable and clean beds, refrigerator, macrowey, coffee maker, iron, hairdryer, each room has access to a shared balcony. The staff in the lobby is very friendly, especially Emanuel and Teresa. Breakfast is included in the room rate. Such a wonderful breakfast, I have not seen in a Best Western hotels before! Breakfast time 7.00 to 10.30 but breakfast room was open until 11.00. The selection of food is very varied: hot sausage, eggs, ham hot and cold, waffles, pancakes, various rolls, muffins. The choice of 4 juice, watermelon, oranges, melons, strawberries, etc. Clean pool, but there not hot tub . There not ocean view rooms, but it is very close to the beach . Parking $ 10, but it is not expensive because the price for the room is not too high compared to nearby hotels. There is only one problem - hotel has the old elevator and the elevator is very noisy. When booking a room, ask for a room away from the elevator. In hotels were many tourists from Europe and all spoke good about staying in.

My family and I stayed here for one night before our cruise. It was a great value and exactly what we needed for one night. This hotel is basic with no frills. The hotel doesn't have a shuttle service so we paid $40 to get there by private shuttle found at the airport. Our party of eight (two families) arrived early since our flight arrived at 12:30pm and we were allowed to check in early. Our room was clean and equipped with a mini fridge, microwave, and safe (we only used the safe). The location was close to the beach so we spent our day in Ft Lauderdale enjoying the warm waves. There is a bar and pool table off the lobby which seemed busy. I was quite impressed by the complimentary breakfast in the morning. It was actually quite good! Checkout was at 10am and when we asked if we could check out late (11am) since our cruise ship embarkment wasn't until 1:30 and were told no. However, the hotel manager offered to stored our luggage in the locked dining room and said we were free to sit in the lobby or by the pool as long as we wanted. We grabbed a few piña coladas from the bar and did just that. The concierge arranged for a shuttle to take us to port ($40) at noon. The shuttle driver even stopped at a local grocery store in route so we could purchase water,soda, and wine which our cruise ship allowed. It all worked out perfectly. This was a great hotel and value for what we needed...an inexpensive one night stay before our cruise.

I absolutely love this hotel. From the friendly management that take care of my reservation all the way to the lady that cleans my room, this place is like home. Carolina makes my reservations, Kathy at the front desk greets me by name when I walk in the door, and the bar staff, Rose, Bob, Matt and Sarah do an excellent job of feeding me and taking care of me.

Stayed here for 2 nights. When I booked, I was asked if I wanted to pay $10 more for the poolside room. The door to our rom was 12 feet from the pool edge.

Rooms were very clean and up to date.
Breakfast in the lobby was great. Tons of choices and all fresh.

This hotel is convenient to beach, bars, restaurants and shopping.

I would definitely stay here again. Well worth the money

Great location close to the airport, beach, Las Olas and many other destination locations in South Florida. Breakfast was decent. Service was friendly at the desk and at the breakfast. For some reason, they do not have towels at the pool; you have to ask at the desk, and they were never ready until after 9 am. I prefer a place with a hot tub, so out of luck on that score. Parking situation is cumbersome and a little pricey. We had car trouble, and it was difficult for a tow truck to get our car out of the garage. I prefer a place with queen beds rather than doubles.
