“Cozy, Friendly, Affordable, and Convenient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

This was our second visit to the Angelfish Inn. We really liked it last year so we decided to stay again this year. The rooms are small but cozy, clean, and comfortable. Karin is very friendly and accommodating She is always willing to go above and beyond to make a guest's visit enjoyable. We have witnessed her helping other guests. The Inn is located within walking distance to the beach and boardwalk. Parking may be tight but we have never had a problem because we always ride in on our bikes. And for the location, cleanliness and service, the rates are very reasonable. We would visit again.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

First of all, there were some things that couldn't be controlled, the weather. It was unseasonably cool and we arrived very late because of our late flight. So when we entered our unit, it was very cold. We didn't realize there were space heaters.

However, Karin met us at our unit at 1AM to show us around and make sure we were okay. We really appreciated that. Knowing it was going to be cool, I thought the Angelfish would be a great place for our kids (3.5 and 1.5) and it was. The kids loved the turtles and the koi pond. Spent about the same amount of time with the animals and the beach. Even spotted a lizard or two!

The Inn is about 100 yards from the Boardwalk so that was convenient. Overall, we had a great time and Karin was very nice. One thing to be aware of is a huge resort is going in about a block away. Construction starts early, but so do my kids so it want's an issue for us.

Great little place that was perfect for a quick get away. Very clean, nicely decorated, colorful and charming. Full kitchen, big screen TV, wireless. All the convinces of home. Comes with a parking space which is essential as parking is a problem. I felt very safe staying there just me, my young son and our little dogs. Loved the live turtles in the little courtyard pool. I look forward to staying there again soon.

Room Tip: Call in advance. They book up fast. They sometimes have last minute cancellations so it is worth it...

Stayed here for a few nights and the place is nice! Karen the owner is very nice, sweet, and accommodating. The hotel is close to everything (restaurants, bars, shopping) and just a few steps away from the boardwalk. Would highly recommend this place and looking forward to staying here again in the Spring!

Spent one night here and it was very homey. The owner is very nice and a pet lover and I’m sure you will be happy staying here. It’s about a block from the beach and an easy walk. It’s not an upscale resort, so if that’s what you’re looking for look elsewhere, but if you want a nice place to relax with friendly people this is the place. They have a washer and dryer if you need them and also have chairs you can take to the beach. There is a very nice board walk on the beach that goes for miles.

If you're looking for a four-star resort, this isn't it. It is an adorable little motel half a block from Hollywood beach.The rooms are decorated with a cool beachy flair; like staying at a friend's beach house. My room had a full kitchen; there's a grocery store just across the street. They have a couple of grills on the patio if you"re so inclined; if not, you're less than a block from the boardwalk with all its restaurants, bars and shops. You don't really even need your car. You can borrow a chair, umbrella and/or noodle and you're set! The best part was the service; I've never felt more welcome anywhere. Karin is a sweetheart and she seems more hostess than manager. She takes very good care of her guests. I came in the day before a cruise; I left wishing I could stay longer. Next time I will!

I stayed at Angelfish Inn the night before a cruise. It was amazingly clean, despite being so close to the beach the place was spotless! Speaking of the beach, this place is less than 1/2 a block from the beach and has chairs and umbrellas you can use for free on the beach. The broadwalk on the beach has everything you could want to eat or drink (all within walking distance). The Inn also has grills that guests can use. The next day, I needed a ride to the port for my cruise. The taxis were booked for 30+ mins, so the owner had her daughter drive us to the port (for free!) If I'm ever in need of a clean, friendly, homely, beachy, affordable place in Ft Laudedale, I will for sure be back!
Thanks for an amazing stay!!

Room Tip: Room 11 is a studio. It's absolutely large enough for a couple. It has a nice sitting area to ha...
