“Super clean & comfortable with a caring, friendly staff. Very affordable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2011

I planned to stay only one night, but circumstances turned my one night into a one week stay. The front desk and manager went above and beyond to extend my stay, and helped with every request I had. They were friendly, caring, efficient, and humane. Sometimes one caring person can make all the difference when you are a stranger on your first visit in town. Wi-fi service was spot-on every time I needed to use it. The room was extra nice, extra clean, and the bed was genuinely comfortable. The cable service was good. The temperature control in the room was excellent, compared to a hotel that cost three times the price that offered no climate control at all, in spite of the thermostat on the wall. There were also plenty of room delivery services available from local dining establishments for those times when I just didn't feel like having to go out to get a good meal. I definitely recommend this hotel to others, and will definitely stay here again. This hotel was much better than the "luxury" hotel I stayed at in a freezing cold room. Also, the parking is free!

Room was fine, free breakfast was OK.
They are no longer offering free transport to the cruise port. It will now cost $8 per person.
They do pick you up at the airport for free.
location is OK
if prices are competitive including shuttle to cruise port I would use this hotel again

We chose this place because it was close to the Port. We went to the desk to get directions to a parking/shuttle service we had the name of when we were leaving. There we met Carl Donvil, working at the front desk clerk. He was busy. The small lobby was full of people. Carl offered to call to try to find out where it was; which he did. They told him to look on the Internet for directions. Great. Carl then told us that the hotel had free shuttle service to the Port, we could leave our car there for $10/day (cheaper than at the Port) and suggested an independent shuttle service when we returned. Multiple problems solved quickly and easily. We returned. Our car was fine. We really appreciate his quality service.

Came to S. Florida to visit family for Christmas.I had originally planned to stay at Comfort Inn (on Stirling) but found the place to be a total dump. Called Victor at Best Western and he offer a kind welcome to us. The hotel is new and in excellent condition. I highly recommend this place, People like Victor make traveling a pleasure.

We stayed at the Best Western Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port specifically for its reported convenience to both the airport and the cruise port. It is close to both but convenient it is not.

Their pick up service at the airport was fine although we heard other travelers complain that they had a long wait. Our problem occurred the next morning on our way to the cruise terminal. It became clear that the Best Western was not prepared to move all of their guests to the terminal in a timely fashion. Not only did they only have 1 small bus running, this bus also collected guests from as many as 3 other hotels in their chain - and the Best Western was apparently last in line.

We waited with many other guests for at least 45 minutes - and 1 full bus to pass. When it became clear that it would be at least that long additionally, we grabbed a cab - although our room fee had included transportation to the terminal.

In addition, the breakfast area at the Best Western is not large enough to accommodate the number of guests the motel serves. Many had to stand. Additionally, no staff appeared for long intervals to refill empty serving trays or to empty (the only) overflowing trash can.

The motel does have free internet service but only 1 machine so there was often a waiting line.

Sadly, I can not recommend this motel - at least not to anyone with airport to ship plans.

We have stayed at this hotel before and after a cruise from Ft. Lauderdale. The hotel is in an excellent location, very easy to access from either Miami or Ft. Lauderdale airports. The hotel offers a shuttle to the port. However since it's on a first come first served basis, I think it's much easier to rent a car (parking at the hotel is free) and use the free shuttle from the port to the car rental service at Ft. Lauderdale airport. Breakfast is simple but adequate (especially before all the food on the ship...), there is a small swimming pool, the rooms were clean (and roomy) and the staff was friendly.

This hotel is the ideal place to stay before and after a cruise. The hotel picks you up at the airport and takes you to the hotel at no charge. Free shuttle service to the cruise port is also provided. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean and neat. Free access to a computer is available. Breakfast was good. This hotel reduces the hassles and complications of getting to and from the cruiseport. Highly recommended for the before and after place to stay for a cruise.
