“Value and Convenience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

This is a property whose main claim to fame is its relative value and its convenience to the cruise port and airport. It is clean and comfortable and provides most of the amenities that one would require for a short stay. There is no restaurant on premises, but they do offer a decent hot breakfast that is included in the room rate. There is a very good German restaurant within walking distance, "The Old Heidelberg Inn". The hotel will make arrangements for transfers to the cruise port in the morning. The cost is reasonable, but it is a bit chaotic and a taxi maybe worth the extra few dollars.

The hotel was nothing special but the service was great. Erica, the woman at the front desk, helped us find our way around the city and made our lives a million times easier. I highly recommend this hotel because of her.

We ALMOST cancelled our reservation at this property because of several less than stellar reviews prior to our stay. However, we decided to bite the bullet and try our luck for the night before our cruise. So happy that we did. The staff ie Sherica and Shonda were so friendly and accomodating. The shopping mall next door was perfect and we found a great place for dinner. Having a shuttle to the cruise port was very convenient. Will definitely stay again next time we cruise our of Ft. Lauderdale.

If you like safe clean and affordable this Hotel fits the bill. Nothing special but everything a business person could ask for in short stay facility. The only draw back was the SLOW Internet.If your doing a lot of work on the Net this is not the place to stay.

We recently stayed at this hotel prior to our cruise. This was not the first time, and it won't be the last. Centrally located, close to the airport and cruise port. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The internet is off and on, but works most of the time.

However, the best part of this hotel is the front desk staff. We had the distinct pleasure to be served by two lovely ladies, Sherica and Shonda. They were both very courteous, fun-loving and professional. Most of all they were both very GENUINE and down-to-earth.

They work in a high volume, high stress environment, having to deal with the massive amount of cruisers each and everyday. They perform their duties impeccably, and always with a smile. They are outstanding ambassadors for Best Western and should be commended for their efforts.

Highly recommend a stay in this hotel.

We flew into Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, and stayed overnight at the Best Western Plus before leaving on a cruise the next morning. The hotel is conveniently located, just a short taxi ride from the airport, and one of their special services is an excellent shuttle to all of the cruise line ports. While there is no restaurant, they do serve a good continental breakfast at no extra charge, and there is a shopping plaza next door with several small restaurants. The room was very clean, and the reception staff is first rate. It isn't inexpensive--over $200 a night--but that isn't out of line for a tourist area (near Hollywood, FL too).

Room Tip: Ask for one away from the main road

I can't say enough about how good the staff are at this hotel. The hotel has some age on it but the kindness of the staff surpasses any hotel I have stayed at. I left a bag in the taxi and the hotel clerk went out of his way to call around (I couldn't remember taxi name that I got from airport) and I got my bag back. Thank goodness as it was my carry on bag for the airplane and had all my paper work in it.
