“Nice Stop over for a Cruise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We were going on a Cross Atlantic Cruise April 26 and decided to take a room on April 25 to be sure we were on time for the Cruise next morning. The shuttle picked us up at the airport after about 20 minutes wait. The room we got on first floor was clean and no noise from outside. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and plenty of it.
There was a shuttle from the hotel to the ship, but that was no good The shuttle cost $8 a person, but could not take everybody there was signed up. We called a taxi and the fare was only $15.

It's a Best Western, so I wasn't expecting anything really amazing. My room was clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was really good. Eggs, pancakes, bagels and cream cheese, as well as a selection of pastries. There were also several fast food options within walking distance if I needed dinner or a late night snack. My only complaint was that there was a gross smell in the hallway off of my room. I wasn't out there that long and it didn't bother me too much, so it wasn't worth complaining about.

Spent a couple of nights here when I flew in/out of FLL. This is the best Best Western I have stayed in. I liked the soft red carpeting throughout including the corridors. The room was spacious and had a comfortable bed and all the basic amenities. I was pleased with the continuous replenishment of the complimentary breakfast in the morning -- ensured that the food was always hot and fresh. Ideally located by a McDonalds and numerous gas stations. Staff was friendly and accommodated all our requests.

We stayed here one night before our cruise and after my last cruise I picked a horrible hotel and I said to
myself I will never do that again and this hotel was amazing. first off the plane I called the hotel from the
terminal and they were there in about 15-20 mins max. Check in was a breeze, The rooms were new looking the bed
was great. i had a fridge and a Microwave in my room and they worked good. There is tons of stuff within walking
distance there is a mcdonalds right in their parking lot, then down the road some there is a wendys and a dunkin
dounts. Also there is a strip mall there with a grocery store and a liquor store and dollar store type of places.
Shuttle in the morning was run by a thrid party and it was $8 a person to get to the Cruise port which was
worth the price, I repeat it was very well organized. i know some posters, posted about slamming doors ? I did not
hear any the night I was there. When I cruise out of Fort Lauderdale again i will be staying here.

This was our third time staying here the night before our cruise and we have always been comfortable. We arrived very late but had no problem getting the airport shuttle to the hotel. Staff at the front desk were very pleasant and the newly refurbished rooms were very comfortable. The Continental breakfast is more than adequate and the hotel's proximity to a small shopping plaza is very convenient for last minute cruise items including the the 2 bottles of wine allowed by the cruise company. Transfer to the port is reliable and fast. There is a computer just off the lobby available to guests with complimentary internet. Very handy for those of us who do not travel with lap tops, i-phones etc.

We stayed 1 night on 5/10/13 and it was probably the most unpleasant experience I've ever had at a hotel and we've stayed in much junkier ones before. Reasons: 1) walls are paper thin, 2) doors don't have slow release mechanisms so they slam, 3) not sure if it's the price point or what but the atmosphere of the guests there were unruly and the staff didn't seem to do anything about it - i.e. guests going in & out at all hours of the night (coupled with the doors slamming is a bad recipe), someone in the room next to ours moaned & screamed all night, 4) when concerns were expressed the next morning it seemed the staff member just wanted us out of his hair so jotted down our name & # for a mgr to calls u and 3 days later that still hasn't happened.

Pros: we had a cute room with a red accent wall. I like color so this was nice. Everything seemed clean. Bed was extremely comfortable - good combination of firm but with a cushiony feeling on top. Breakfast was pretty decent for a continental breakfast.

Overall I wouldn't stay here again - I need my sleep and considering I went to bed at 10pm and still only got about 2 hours of sleep it's a big drawback for me.
