I spent 5 vacation nights iat the Universal Palms Hotel with my wife and daughter and I could'nt be happier. Joel and Eddie at the front desk were friendly and acommodating, and the maintenance staff and maids went beyond the call of duty to make sure we were satisfied. The room was clean and we enjoyed the pool and trpical feel of the courtyard surrounding it. The location is perfect for traveling throughout the Fort Laderdale area..It's close to the beach and downtown area at a much more affordable price than staying on the beach or downtown..But the best thing about this hotel that does'nt have the all too familiar franchise name, is its people....I strongly reccommend!
