“Best Western's good standard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Although the hotel's website warns that it is under construction there was hardly any noise disturbance. It was comfortable staying in the room and room cleaning was very efficient. The staff from front desk to the dining area were very helpful friendly and informative. Other pluses of the hotel include the convenient location within easy access to the beach, shops, the airport and there is available transport by bus and taxi. The breakfast buffet included in the room cost is well prepared with a wide variety of options.

Priceline over rated this hotel- 3 star, it was maybe a 2 star at best. It is old ,smelly and nasty. The staff at the front desk are very rude. Didn't know there was a $10.00 a day parking charge till I arrived. Construction (which I didn't know was going on till I arrived) was loud and limited the use of the ice machines, elevator and parking. And to get to the beach made you were intruding on another hotel. I was booked 08/02/2014 thru 08/06/2014. I left a day early because it disgusted me so much.

Room Tip: don't stay here

Nice place. I stayed here when it wasn't a Best Western over 35 years ago. The place looks great. Even though their information said that remodeling was going on we in no way were inconvienced. The huge beach is right out the back. The included breakfast was great, check in and out very easy. The pool is nice with the bar right there. Easy parking under hotel. Have to give them all excellents. They deserve it.

We were a 7 person bachelorette party on a budget. The accommodations of 2 adjoined rooms allowed us to all be together without renting an expensive suite. I asked for rooms together, early check in and late checkout. Our flights were early (9am!) but they had us in there by noon and called my phone to let us know. In the meantime they held onto our luggage. Everyone did everything they could to help us out and we appreciated it. Definitely great value for minimal cost!!

Lastly, yes the construction is clanging throughout the day (as warned) but never woke us up or hindered our experience outside of construction parts and traffic in the halls. We are laid back, didn't bother us at all. The place is already great, after the update I'm sure it will be amazing!!!

Three generations of women were taking a quick get-away and our first stop was in Ft. Lauderdale From the moment we entered the hotel, the staff was welcoming. We felt they wanted us there. We were hesitant about the remodeling going on, but it was not very noisy and only during the day.
Free WiFi, safe, micro, fridge.
The facility was very clean and well furnished.
The buffet breakfast was more than adequate and the staff there was very helpful.
We would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Higher floors Ordered 2 full sized beds.

Location, Location, Location. This is an average hotel with a cool retro pool area that is in a AWESOME location. We stayed here before boarding the Oasis of the Seas. We were able to walk 100 yards to Ft. Lauderdale beach and enjoy the area. When it was time to get on the cruise the port was a mile away. Very convenient hotel to everything. Very busy area and hotel. Rooms are just average.

Construction from every direction and loud speaking housekeeping and construction crew made this stay unbearable. Loose shower rods, musty smell just added to the awful experience. The only bright spot was the lovely woman at the front desk I met at check-in other than that I would say bad experience all around and will not be coming back ever.
