“Nice Overnight for Travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We stayed at this Best Western to spend the night before catching another flight out of the airport. Although it has a free shuttle, it is only a 10 minute taxi ride and was worth not having to wait for the shuttle. Although the lobby is small, it has an adequate eating area for its free breakfast. It is not elegant, but it did have eggs, and sausage if you wanted a hot meal. Cereals, bread, and sweet rolls were also available. The rooms were clean and quiet, and the check in was quick and efficient.

Airport shuttle was a TOTAL FAILURE. Shuttle vehicle at airport didn't display Best Western logo, so of course I didn't go near them when they stopped. (If you have a B/W reservation, would YOU approach a shuttle driver from the Holiday Inn van?) Driver accused me of not being there when he previously stopped. Took an hour and more phone calls to get picked up. Will not use this hotel again due to shuttle. (BTW, departure shuttle and driver was the exact opposite.)

Only bad thing was lack of pick up at airport. ! phoned desk 3 times. Gave up after 50 minutes and took a $20 cab ride to Best Western. Room was good. Breakfast was excellent for this type of hotel "freebee". Try the german restaurant Heidleburg near by. Nice change of pace. Over all,almost perfect for a night before the cruise hotel.

Our experience at this hotel was super. We spent the night here before our cruise. We flew in to Ft. Lauderdale, so had no vehicle. I mention this because we decided to do the things around the hotel. The staff was so helpful in recommending lunch places and dinner places and other things to do within walking distance. Our room was very clean. Breakfast was delicious. I asked the front desk if I could borrow a screwdriver to repair a suitcase, and they were accommodating.

It is my opinion that this location is a great destination for those travelers who are looking for a short or long term stay. The hotel is quite welcoming and the staff is very atentive and willing to assist. The rooms are very clean which is a clear reflection on their cleaning crew. In short I highly recomend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel overnight on Friday October 11, 2013.
We chose this location due to it proximity to the cruise port.
When we entered the reception area, there was a distinct smell of disinfectant and the overall appearance was shabby and run down. This smell continued into the corridors.
Upon checking into our room, we immediately noticed a strong musty smell. The room was also very dark and old fashioned and very much in need of a serious refurbishment.
We immediately reported the smell to the girl at reception. She never offered to accompany us to the room or provide an alternative room but instead handed us a spray bottle of Febreeze to deal with the problem! As it was a bit late to start looking for an alternative hotel, we used the spray as best we could but have to say that the smell did NOT go away and we never really felt clean or comfortable through the night.
At check out the next morning, our complaint fell on deaf ears. We were charged full price and the man at reception was not really interested to hear of our problems.
We had a lot of choices when deciding where to stay that night. We selected Best Western as we are a member of their loyalty program but are not now sure whether being loyal to this brand is worthwhile if this is the sort of standard they offer.

This hotel was exactly what we wanted. It was close to the airport and close to the cruiseport. The price was reasonable, the service great, and the rooms were clean. We were able to walk to the local grocery store to pick up some snacks and the free breakfast was an added plus. Highly recommend this hotel if you're taking a cruise out of Ft Lauderdale. They provide a free transport from the airport to hotel and return. Lastly, they have a great shuttle to the cruiseport at a very reasonable price. All transportation provided was well organized and on time.
