This "hotel" is disgusting. I stayed here for 2 nights in March 2009... one night before our cruise and one night after. They tell you that they have a complimentary shuttle that takes you to the Cruiseport... but what they don't tell you is that the shuttle only goes to the cruiseport at noon. So if you are stuck taking a cab, it will cost you around $45 (ONE way) for two people. The first night we stayed there, we were in room 406 in the front of the hotel. The traffic is so loud right outside, I don't think I slept at all. I tried to change rooms, to move to the back of the hotel, but was told they could not accomodate me. The room was filthy... mold all throughout the shower and on the ceiling. Hairs all over the bathroom. I had on white socks while in the room... the floor was so dirty my socks became BLACK on the bottom. The coffee maker didn't work, nor did the hairdryer. I wouldn't have even come back to this hotel for a second night if it wasn't already pre-paid (don't try to get a refund if you pre-pay... you CAN'T get out of it, no matter what!). The second night was a little better... not AS dirty and our room was in the back of the hotel so we actually had a semi-quiet night. One thing I found out though... this hotel is in the GHETTO. We were up the road at an ice cream shop and began chatting with the server there.. she could not believe we were staying at the Days Inn in Oakland Park because it is such a bad area. We took the bus twice to find restaurants and ran into some shady characters on that as well. The service at the hotel was NOT good... they basically didn't help us with anything. We had to figure out how to get around on our own. The only restaurant within walking distance to the hotel is a Denny's, which was actually pretty decent considering everything else in the area. I would definitely NOT recommend this roach motel to anyone. If you are taking a cruise, pay more and stay closer to the cruiseport... you'll end up spending it in cab fare anyways. However, if for some reason you are stuck staying here... I would definitely ask for a room on the back side of the hotel.
