“Convenience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

There were 10 people coming from all parts of the US to go on a cruise. After a call to the hotel, from the airport, we were picked up in about 15 minutes. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but withing walking distance are a few fast food places such as McDonalds and Taco Bell. The large mall is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel for your last minute shopping items. Front desk people were very polite and accomodating. The hotel bar serves some sandwiches if needed. The morning breakfast is pretty good. Much more than a continen breakfast. We told the desk clerk the name of our ship upon check-in and she went to a book listing all of the cruise lines. She told us when our shuttle would leave for the cruise terminal. We did not expect the Ritz, when they charge less than $90 for the night, breakfast, pickup at the airport and delivery to the cruise terminal. Room was satisfactory. If going on a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale, I would use the Comfort Inn again. It certainly served our purpose.

Stayed at the Comfort Inn Airport/Cruise Port South before and after our recent cruise. An older facility, smaller rooms but clean, great free shuttle service to and from airport and cruise port, great breakfast and great pool/meeting area. The pool area is a great gathering area to meet and greet your fellow cruisers. Almost everyone staying at the hotel were cruisers. We figured we saved at least $100 by taking advantage of their free shuttles. The shuttles were all very timely and a great service. All personnel were very friendly and very willing to please. Hotel is within walking distance of a shopping center and K-Mart. Taco Bell, McDonald's, BurgerKing, Wendy's, Chapolte's Mexican and the old time Dining Car Resturants are all within walking distance. Thank you for a great stay. Will definitely stay at this facility when cruising out of Ft. Lauderdale again.

Room Tip: Rooms were on the 2nd and 4th floors overlooking the parking lot--very quiet.

It's not too fancy but it's a good place to lay your head before and after a cruise - they are very experienced with getting you to your cruise port and picking you up ... from Fort Lauderdale and Miami Ports! All the employee's work very hard and long hours and still keep a smile on their face.

My friend and I were booked in at this hotel as we were going on a Panama Cruise with Island Princess lines. This was the designated hotel.
What a dump. The sink had a large crack in it. The room smelled musty and the air conditioner was on 24/7 with no off switch that worked. The bedspreads looked like they had been brought in second hand. It sounded like the people in the next room were right beside us in our room.
Honestly, for a hotel that is designated as a stop over before sailing, it is disgusting. I think the owner should take some of the money they are getting from the Travel Agents and upgrade this place. A new paint job would be a good start and maybe an up todate flat screen tv that would leave some room for the guests things on the counter.
Our unit had a large cabinet to hold the tv. The cupboards had been ripped off the cabinet and you could see where there once was a fridge.
I would not recommend this hell hole to anyone and believe me I know alot of travellers.
We were supposed to get a shuttle from the airport but we waited for 1 hour and I phoned the hotel again and was told we were probably standing in the wrong place. I looked at the sign and it said pick up and shuttles to hotels. We got so tired of waiting we hailed a cab. When we checked in I told the desk clerk what had happened and she again said we were probably standing at the wrong place. grrrrrrrrr
No use complaining to the front desk people because they are just the employees and the manager wasn't anywhere around.

Room Tip: Just go to another hotel such as La Quinta that was recommended to us but our travel agent had alrea...

We stayed at this hotel for one night before we departed on a cruise. I was very pleased overall with the service this hotel provided. The free airport shuttle is a nice benefit, particularly given that the hotel is several miles from the airport, which would make a taxi expensive. The entire staff was very pleasant and cooperative, and particularly helpful in assisting with the free transport to the cruise port for the next morning.

The hotel itself was what one would expect for a facility at this relatively low price point -- nothing fancy, but quite adequate. The bed was comfortable. Because we arrived late and did not have a car, I was pleased to discover that there were several fast food places to eat within walking distance, as well as a shopping center.

We were looking for a pre-cruise and post-cruise hotel so we used TripAdvisor to find something that would work. Many of the hotels in this area run $150+ so when I saw the $99 rate I looked further. Reviews indicated it was adequate - and that's what it was, adequate. As others have noted, it needs some fixing up - painted over cracks in the walls, holes in the carpet, hard to shut doors just to name a few. The breakfast, again, was adequate.

My big complaint was the post-cruise experience. After disembarking and collecting our luggage, I called for pickup. Several more calls and almost two hours later, we finally were able to get a ride. Once at the hotel, we were informed that our rooms would not be ready for at least 3 hours (had I known I might have booked a local excursion). As it turned out it was well over 4 hours before we got our rooms.

Side note - there is a Taco Bell and McDonald's right next door but no close restaurants. There is also a strip mall with Big Lots and a sporting goods store behind them. It helped us to pass the time while waiting to get into our rooms.

The big plus for this property, the people. Eddie & Sue at the front desk were good and tried to be as helpful as possible. The bellman was also courteous and helpful in getting our bags to and from the room - we had 4 couples so it was a lot of baggage.

Would I stay there again? I probably would not. Spending a whole day waiting on this hotel was not what I had in mind. I'll pay more next time for a nicer place.

Room Tip: This is a 3 story property running length-wise away from the office. Look for rooms numbered in the...

Dear Howard4094,

The staff and management at Comfort Inn Ft. Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port South would like to thank you for the review posted on Trip Advisor. I am very happy to read that you found all our team members to be courteous and helpful. Every day I see them go above and beyond making sure all our guests receive the best customer service Ft. Lauderdale has to offer. In contrast, I am disappointed to read that you had shuttle problems returning to the hotel. The port can get quite hectic when we have 8 ships departing. We do our best to make sure all our guests get picked up promptly, but in your case we failed you and for that you have my apology. Thank you again and if given another try I am sure we could exceed your expectations.

Overall a good stay. the staff was great and Kim the bartender was the best. The hotel could use a little updateing and some detailing here and there. The on site snack bar served very basic but good food. The continental breakfast was good also, the toaster took forever to toast( one of those details ) all things being said we would stay here again.
