1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I never stayed there. But I made a reservation, that when I called to confirm, was told never exsisted. Had to make last minute reservations elsewhere and then came home to a charge on my credit card.

I tried to deal with the Owner/manager and ended up lodging complaints with Travelodge and am still getting the run around.

Now that I have been to the area....there are so many other options, with honest staff.

Completely disapointed with the experience...."what comes around goes around"

Room Tip: Book another hotel. There are tons in the area.

I travel frequently within the USA and have a reasonable point of comparison for hotels/prices etc.

This hotel is considerably overpriced for what you get and has a number of negative issues:
1. Rooms are poorly maintained and below standard in terms of cleanliness
2. Furniture, carpets etc, (including beds) are very old and in need of update
3. So called "Deluxe Continental Breakfast" was a joke: only one fruit choice (oranges), two cereal choices (Sultana Bran & Frosted Flakes), one kind of milk (full cream), one kind of cheap bread for toasting (white), only spread for toast was jam (*no* peanut butter or honey etc.), hot beverages were unlabeled (was one of those coffee pots decaf or ?), bakery items were pre-packaged so not sure how fresh they were, breakfast area tables were not stable (once again indicative of poor attention to maintenance), waffle mix made very "rubbery" waffles.
4. Access to the beach not what it might appear on a map as you cannot walk through the beachfront condo properties. I walked quite a distance (15 mins) and still did not find a way onto the beach.

On the more positive side the wireless internet worked OK, they did provide a parking space, rooms though old and not clean were quite spacious, and there is a McD's, supermarket, and other shopping within easy walking distance.

Had this place cost in the vicinity of $50 - $60 I would have considered it much closer to providing what you pay for (esp. as Fort Lauderdale accommodation seems generally more expensive than many other USA locations). However, as we paid a "special" discount AAA online rate that was $90 (non-discount was closer to $100) it is clearly overpriced for what you get. I'm thinking there must be other hotels in this area that provide much better value for money and I would encourage you to investigate those before choosing this place. Be warned - like all similar places, the website photos are very misleading and look much better than reality. I definitely would *not* stay here again.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere - I expect all rooms suffer from same lack of maintenance, cleanliness, etc. and incl...

it is one of the dirtiest motel never visited. Spacious room but fetid. non-white sheets and towels for years. Parking free but inconvenient.Staff rude .poor breakfast and poor quality
There are no free access to beaches , itìs necessary to moves by car.
Swimming pool : a real disaster. It's better to don't have something like it. brackish water but fortunately no frogs inside.
Must be avoided.

Most of the places around this hotel have recently changed the beds, not the Travelodge though. Old matrasses, i actually had to sleep on the very end of the bed because the matrass kept on caving in. Awful night. Had to stay there for a night in january after partying in the area. Other family run resorts in the area are nicer.

Nothing special here.

Free parking (good), free WiFi (good), free breakfast (skip it). There's a very nicely landscaped courtyard in front, and the pool was clean and warm.

The room itself was dated, but it was clean. The bed is obviously old, and if you want a good night's sleep it won't provide. I just wanted a place to flop for the night, so it served the purpose.

Location was exactly where I wanted to be. The room was reasonably priced for the off-season, but I would not pay more to stay here. Ocean Blvd is a long strip of hotels, so there are many others to pick from.

Room Tip: Rooms are dark and somewhat dreary.

First of all, these people are rude and nasty and if you need more towels or anything they say we dont have it. The room was flirty dirty. The smell of the room was so bad, I went out and got something for it. Then the pool got shut down from the health dept, because they were not cleaning and putting the chemicals in the pool!!!!! WORSE of all, when we were leaving BED BUGS! They are close to the beach however not worth staying here at all!!!!!!!

Room Tip: You been warned

That was the worst Hotel that I'd ever been there. I reserved two non-smoking rooms. However, both had a strong cigarrete smell. The room service is terrible. Seems like the janitor smoked there during the "cleaning", which is limited to change the sheets and towells. But doesn't have a real cleaning. The room had insects anad dust everywhere. They left the frig open and makes my insulin warm. The breakfast have insects around the place and the quality, or orign, of these food are unreliable for a healthy meal.
Although of low price, the experience wasn't worthwhile because these terrible and unhealthy conditions of this place.
