“Last minute plan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Due to an unexpected flight delay, we chose this hotel because they were near and offered free 24 hr. shuttle service. The room was very clean with comfortable beds and quiet night. The bathroom was average and clean. We scheduled a 4 A.M. shuttle back to the airport (the service leaves on the hour) which was too early for the free breakfast, but a young man quickly put out packaged muffins and sweet rolls for us and that was convenient and helpful. I was pleased with the check-in/out service and our wake-up call was punctual. I did feel the rate was a little pricey but there were lots of cruises that Sunday so that may be the norm. I've looked them up on the internet from home and they have better rates at times so planning ahead would be my advice.

Room Tip: The property is well located and away from busy roadways and we were on the second floor....no noise...

We stayed at this property a few days ago and had a very pleasant experience. We just needed one night as we were driving up from the Keys and our flight left the next day. This property met all our needs! We had a big, clean, modern room. The pool area was great to relax at. The continental breakfast in the morning was more than adequate. The only reason I did not give them a rating of excellent is because we had to wait for our room to be cleaned and ready even arriving after 4pm (check in is a 3pm). We would highly recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Stayed in mid-March 1 night before a cruise. Called the hotel to ask about the airport shuttle as well as a shuttle to the cruiseport the next day.

Very friendly staff; clean room with good amenities.

Warning about the shuttles to the cruiseportl: available only 24 hours before the day of your cruise; we waited until we arrived the night before, around 9pm and found that they only had openings for shuttles at 9:30 and 10:30am. Should have called before we arrived to secure a reservation on a later shuttle.

Lobby was crowded in the am since checkout was at 11am and lots of folks were waiting for 11:30 and later shuttles to cruiseport with all their luggage.

Stayed here one night. Rode the shuttle from the airport and used the shuttle the next day to go back to the airport to get a rental car. Great service.

Our room was nice and it was clean. Comfortable bed and room was quiet. Mario informed us about the nice breakfast in the morning it was a pleasure speaking to Mario.

Stayed one night prior to cruise. Have found Best Western Hotels to be clean and generally not shop worn and this was true of this motel. located in an area of strip malls on Florida #84. Free pickup at airport but not to cruiseport and with a one night stay of $150.00 plus, ought to be included. Breakfast included and just adequate, juice,coffee,tea, toast, bagels, scrambled eggs and sausages ( microwaved cooked) standard fare for Interstate highway motels. Hotels (motels) in Ft lauderdale at this time of year winter are really overpriced and I would guess half of the above price the rest of year. Reading some other negative revues in Ft Lauderdale for pre and post cruise stays leads me to say it probably as good or better as any with respect to cleanliness......transport to cruiseport was $8.00.

You get a lot for your money. This hotel is reasonably priced, yet nice room and good complimentary breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here prior to taking a cruise. Our plane got in after midndight but a phone call brought quick pick up. The rooms were adequate for this sort of hotel, clean and quiet. We slept too late for the continental breakfast and there is no restaurant on the property. However, a 4 or 5 block walk brought us to several choices. Don't bother taking the arranged shuttle to the cruise terminal as it leaves at only 1 time; it turned out a cab ride was cheaper when we chose to take one. They had a secure holding place for luggage while we went to eat. Since we got in so late and our ship was not availalble until late afternoon they let us stay an hour after the listed check out time at no charge.We traveled in February 2012.
