“Location is the only thing going for it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This place is in desperate need of remodeling. The bathroom was the most disgusting. My mother was so displeased with her room that she complained, but the person at the reception said there were no more rooms left. Then, I was at the reception later and someone came without a reservation and got a room. Therefore, they must've had other rooms left. Next time I'm in Ft. Lauderdale, I will spend an extra $50 and stay at a decent place.

This is older accommodation and is poorly maintained. This location is in desperate need of updating and cleaniness leaves a lot to be desires. We found hair in our bathtub even though it was supposedly cleaned and there was a lot of grime around the windows. While the bedding seemed to be clean nothing else seemed particularly so. Also our bedroom window did not work properly and had to be propped open to get any fresh air. We had booked a non-smoking room (my wife is allergic to scents) months in advance yet when we arrived we were given smoking room and when I brought this to their attention was advised that there were no other rooms available. The next day we were upgraded but this didn't make up for the fact that my wife suffered through the night in the room. The only positive was the location but I would never go back and would others not to as well. Thoroughly disappointed in these accomodations and the 3 star rating given is unjustified.

It was a Days Inn so I thought it couldn't be that bad - wrong!! Our room was in a bldg down the block, unsafe overgrown bushes, no lock on bathroom window and we were on 1st flr. mattress was old and flat, no mattress pad - gross. Water was yellow. Room was remodeled but they just boarded up only entrance - did not use sheetrock to make look nice. RAT seem in Tiki bar when there were customers there - that's how at home the rats are. When we told the guy at the front desk he said "Sometimes the ocean rats come right in" what was he on! I will never stay here again

This is a one stop shop.. Excellent value, right across the street from a beautiful beach, down the road from restaurants/shops, beautiful pool/hot tub, and a restaurant on site that is one of the best in Ft. Lauderdale!! Every time we would leave to go get something to eat somewhere else someone would make the comment that we had a better restaurant right @ Bahia Cabana. Plus the view of the marina while you eat can't be beat. This all on top of the nicest management team of any hotel I've ever stayed at!!

Room was clean, but bathroom was tiny & old & the bathtub drain didn't work.
Older TV, nice restaurant on the Marina - food good - live entertainment on Sat. night. beach right across the street.
