“The worse hotel I ever stayed. Bed bug bites”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

Please, don't waste your money on this dirty hotel. The breakfast is horrible, I found hair in each towel in the bathroom, the staff members are rude and impolite. I asked for a nonsmoking room but the smell was killing us... The previews guest smoked there and they tried to fix the smell by putting a machine in our room for about 30 min and nothing changed. They gave us another room and it was the same thing. The worse thing was the bed bug bites my husband and I got from there. We regretted staying there!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I stayed in this hotel from April 28th to May 12th, 2012. When they first showed me the room, I thought it was very beautiful in the room and on the grounds. It has a nice pool with nice jungle plants everwhere. There is a continental breakfast that is very good on an open patio. I met lots of nice travellers there. The hotel in right on the beach only 1/2 block to the beach and right across from several restaurts/grocery store/bars. It on the Galt Ocean Mile a 1/2 mile from Lauderdale-by-the-sea. There is a free newpaper daily. The customer service is excellent. I would stay there again and am planning to come back. There is a nice view from the third floor across to the Galt Ocean mile strip. The room is very clean and quiet. I felt at home there.

Room Tip: Nice view on Third floor of pool and Galt Ocean Mile.

I was suprised that the motel was across the street from where my son just moved. The room was very nice and the motel personel were very helpful. I will be back soon!

So I tried once again to retreive the nights rate I was charged in Feb. Long storey short. I called to confirm before we left, 2 days ahead and the front desk clerk told me we did not have a reservation and they had no rooms. I did not receive an email with a confirmation after my initial call to the hotel.

So after this disapointment I found other accomadations last minute.

To my surprise...I got charged a night no show fee. On a reservation I tried to confirm and was told never exsisted.

I called the manager and explained the situation and my frustration and was met with the the irrate words

" I dont deal with threats...I asked her what threat I could pose....."

She raised her voice and repeated this....so I said "what threat could I do? Write a bad review?"

SO here is my final push to keep any and all business from this hotel and its awful female manager. Who by the way hung up on me.

Nice work folks...
karma is nasty only if you are!

It is budget accomodation need I say more. Pool needs a clean it is probably a health hazard. the first non smoking room had been smoked in and was pretty rough. the second room was much better but still had sticky tiled floor. The breakfast balcony was dirty but got cleaned a little.
