“A Good HIE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Nice friendly staff, free parking, free internet, comfortable, well furnished rooms. The property would appear to have been renovated recently and is ideal for anyone requiring easy access to Ft Lauderdale Executive Airport. Aircraft noise can be heard but it didn't really disturb me. The only complaint was that the carpet adjacent to the bathroom was a bit smelly. Overall a nice stay.

Dear Billyz11 from London,

Thanks for staying with us and for the nice review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Although we are across the street from the private airport, the reason you can't hear the noise is that we are not in their flight pattern. So glad it didn't bother you.

Sincerely
Jo Jean and Staff

Visiting our mother in Fort Lauderdale and needing a safe, clean, and comfortable place to stay. Had made reservations at the WESTIN and it was so run down we left in the morning. I started to search hotels and by chance checked this out. The people are wonderful, kind and helpful, the rooms immaculate and I took a suite and it was tremendous! Comfortable beds, great linens and towels, a wonderful set up with living space, kitchen !!!! The gym is perfect. And all at great price with a complete breakfast.
I will be back. This is one place you will not be disappointed.!! 5 stars and the nicest staff on all shifts. Randy Lee G

The beds were clean and sound.The staff was very accommodating and always greeted us every morning with cheerful "Good Morning". e enjoyed our stay here very much. Breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, toasts, pancakes, yogurt, cereals, teas, milk and great coffee is free.

We stayed at this HI Express for 5 days last week. The staff was uniformly great, the room quiet, clean, and comfortable, and the breakfast menu solid. Nothing to complain about. A very well-run facility!

Stayed three nights on business. Clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was just right to get you going. My WiFi was horrible....a colleague just down the hall had no issues wahtsoever.

Staff were all pleasant.

I would definitley stay again on business, or the night before/after a cruise....otherwise nothing much to do in the vicinity.

This hotel was excellent. The service was friendly and they even allowed us to check in early. This was a huge help to us, as we were needing somewhere to put our luggage and relax for a little while. The room was spacious and very clean. The breakfast had lots of variety, including hot biscuits and gravy. I would highly recommend this hotel. If in the area again, we plan to come back! This was the relaxation you are supposed to feel while staying at a hotel.

First stay was great, we stayed 2 nights and then decided to stay the 3rd night there..... We were flying out of Fort Lauderdale on the Monday evening so we decided to stay from the Sat, 2 more nights. 5 nights out of a 10 nights holiday in Florida I guess says it all.

The only real problem I had was trying to get a smile from the front desk.... Cleaners Breakfast staff smiled all the time. The front desk were not smilers.

One other thing, if there is a third member of the group who going to use the pull out.... Pain in the back that sums it up. Worst bed in all my history of traveling. Lucky I had good friends who let me have a real bed....

Room Tip: Just be lucky, opt for ground floor good location for the pool

Dear Myidea62 from Sweden,
Thank You for staying with us. Sorry to hear the front desk staff not smiling. We try to make sure all guests are comfortable. Hide-a-bed couches are not the most comfy mattresses. We do have regular roll-a way beds that are full thick mattresses.
