“Very nice and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We arrived about an hour before check in time. Nothing was said about that. Registration was fast and painless. The room was very clean. The bed was very comfortable. We drove to Miami Beach to meet family for supper. Got back to the motel and watched TV until time to sleep (about 11). We both slept very well. If there was any noise we didn't hear a sound. We did hear a woman who REALLY liked her shampoo when we were in the hall in the afternoon, but inside the room the only sound was the A/C running.

Breakfast in the morning was very good. There was a large amount and a large selection.

Check out was as painless as check in. We turned in our key cards and were on our way. We will probably stay here again in about a month when we have to return our company to the Miami airport.

For the money this is the place for me when going to MIA. Yes, traffic can be a problem, but if you leave early and expect heavy traffic it is worth the savings.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor about half way between the back door and the vending machines, and didn...

Our flight on Southwest came in 2 hours late, called the hotel and they held our room with no problem. We've stayed here several times before a cruise, never disappointed. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean, check in and out was quick and easy. Nice little breakfast in the morning. Other guest in the hotel were friendly, in fact we met a family that we flew with there!

There is a McDonalds and Wendy's in the parking lot, a Winn Dixie grocery store within walking distance if you need to pick up snacks, drinks, or any forgotten toiletries. There is also a Radio Shack, Big Lots.... but they don't open until 9 am if you plan on getting a early start to your day.

We had rented a car from Hertz at the airport (got a great rate through AAA), dropped off at the cruiseport (which is at the Comfort Inn right down the street from this hotel) and took the Hertz shuttle right to the ship. Very quick and easy! Was on Carnival Freedom by 11:10 am!

Dropped off the rental car and called for shuttle, advised to go to pick up area and shuttle would be there in 5 minutes. Well add about twenty minutes. Not a fun experience given FLL heat and humidity. Complaint did not accomplish much ; totally ignored.

Very frustrating when you see the other brand hotel shuttles lap around several times before we spot our ride.

This hotel is really close to both the airport and beaches, and has a super comfy, friendly feel. The pool is clean and warm; the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast is standard for a BW - enough variety to make you feel like you're getting your money's worth. Really nice people running the place too. Definitely recommend!

When I was booking my reservation, I somehow booked my reservation at the Best Western Plus Fort Lauderdale Airport but I wanted to go to the Best Western Plus, Fort Lauderdale Airport South Inn & Suites on 1900 Stirling Road. I explained the mix up to the girl at the reservation desk, and she called the other one and cancelled it and let me stay at the Stirling Road one. She was very kind and thoughtful and took care of everything for me to stay there.

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.
