After we had driven all day from Key West, we arrived at this hotel. We'd booked it for price and relative proximity to the Hollywood-Ft. Lauderdale airport. We were trying to save money since we'd only be there overnight for an early morning flight home.
While it is updated and has all the basics (check the photos on the website), it still feels old. It's also on a busy multi-lane boulevard and even with the address we missed it several times (tired eyes) before we pulled into the driveway (narrow parking spots, not easy for SUVs or other large vehicles). The check-in and staff were fine, but it wasn't very busy. The rooms are updated, but the outside still looks like a 1950s motel in a C-shape with the pool in the middle (just outside all the room windows). The pool was large and clean.
There wasn't anything to walk to for a meal, so we decided to drive into Ft. Lauderdale. That was nice.
It's only 8 miles from the airport, but it seemed like more. Also the traffic is busy, so it will take you a while if you are getting to the airport in high commuter times.
If we'd stayed closer to the airport, we could have turned in our rental car a day earlier and taken a shuttle to the airport. Next time we'll do that, even if it's more money.
