5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Been staying at various motels along A1A in Ft. Lauderdale and Lauderdale by the Sea for many years..and tried a number of them, even the most expensive with all kinds of amenities. I am a senior citizen looking for a simple, clean, place to stay and happy to invite a friend to visit. This is my 3rd year at the Sun Deck Motel..and next year will be my fourth. This is a family run business who take a personal interest because its theirs. If anyone does not plan to drive around Florida, then skip the car rental and seve the money. Across the street is a Winn Dixie Supermarket, Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds, and major bank. Walk to the ocean is one block away. This is the owner's 16th year...pretty muchj says it all. I would only say give it a try, and if not happy plenty of others on the strip..

Room Tip: Stay on the upper sun deck area over looking th pool ... and you might not want to leave,

What can I say? You'll get what you paid. For a low price don't expect much. The owner is nice. Bathroom is dirty, towels worn out, very thin wall and very noisy since it is located right next to the highway ( there are a lot of others motels on this highway so I guess it will be noisy no matter what motel you choose) If you're a light sleeper ( like me) you should think twice about this but if you want to save some money and don't care too much about the facilities then stay here. Make your own choice!

The Sundeck is a beautiful property with an actual Sundeck on the second story, a pool and extremely clean rooms. Free WiFi, within walking distance to the beach, shops, grocery store, and restaurants (D&D, Italian, Greek). You definitely get your money's worth staying here.

The owner was friendly and accomodating, the deck overlooking the pool is great, the room was the cleanest we've stayed in in years, the pool was sparkling clear and only saw one or two people in it at any time. Chain drugstore and supermarket right accross the street, easy parking right in front of motel, and a 5 minute walk to the beach accross the street.
Wireless was functional but not the fastest (like anywhere), tv was adequate (how much do you watch on Ft. Laud beach anyway???), room had fridge, microwave, the standard ammenities.
Overall, 4 to 5 stars for the VERY reasonable (CHEAP!) rate we paid. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Room Tip: There are many good restaurants and "t-shirt shoppes" within a couple minutes stroll; over...

The Sundeck Motel has a great location with free parking. The rooms are quite big and have direct access to the beach or the sundeck. They are a bit old-fashioned, but thats what you should be expecting for a low price. The pool is nice and very clean and the motel even provides pool towels.
The motel is very close to the beach, the walk to it is a few min though, because the hotels in first row wont let you pass. Next trespassing is in about half a mile.
There is a grocery & CVS across the street, also a nice little restaurant with great food next to the CVS.
