“Decent stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is a decent place to stay for the price. It is less than a block from ocean access, and less than two blocks from commercial blvd. There are plenty of options for dining within a couple of minutes walking - and don't forget Kilwin's for ice cream.
I have stayed here twice - and, of course, they remembered me. The hotel has seen better days, but it is clean and inexpensive.
The number 11 bus will pick you up a half block away and from there you can go anywhere in Fort Lauderdale.
The rooms have refrigerators, microwaves, coffee pots and even dining ware.
The only problem was the hair dyer did not work.

I am part of the Canadian crew that has been enjoying the Paradise and its surroundings for six years now. They are very accommodating and welcoming. Granted it is an older hotel however they do their best to keep it maintained. The rooms are clean, maid service is daily, the pool is pristine and there are some added touches. Good value for the price with nominal increases over the years.

Can’t beat the location, is great to be within walking distance to many restaurants and bars, the area is growing with some recent new additions.

I am looking forward to many more years at the Paradise by the Sea.

I have been going to this area for going on 30 years and the Paradise is a great place to stay. The owner/manager is friendly and accommodating and the price is right. This may not be the newest facility on the coast but it is clean and well maintained with a friendly staff, what more can you ask for. I will be back.

I have being staying at the Paradise for five years during my March vacation and I have enjoyed my stay very much. My room is clean and management has always been there for me and to make sure my stay at the Paradise is good and that all my needs are met. Management is good to me and I have never had a problem with them. The Paradise is close to everything and if I have a problem, Zenno and his team are always there to take care of my needs. They keep it clean, the maid service is excellent and I hope to continue staying at the Paradise for a long time.
Thank you Zenno!!

Thirty years and counting of March break / Easter vacation in Fort Lauderdale by the Sea. Have stayed in many places along the way. The last 6 trips have been Paradise by the Sea. It's simple - the place just works so well. A quick walk to the beach, restaurants, tiki bars, weekend concerts.... Ten minute scenic bus ride to downtown Lauderdale. Not the Taj Mahal but rooms are clean, and very reasonably priced. Everyone has a story but the Paradise rules for the Toronto crew. Thanks for another wonderful holiday Zeno (owner). See you next spring break.

We have been travelling to Paradise by the Sea for a number of years....an annual trip I look VERY forward to. Over the time we have been going there, yes, age is a factor in the property, but we notice every year, something new has been updated....good things take time. I feel like I am at a "home away from home", comfortable....we are treated well, the staff are like an extended family. I LOVE the Lauderdale by the Sea surroundings, LOTS of scenery, food and entertainment close at hand. Can't wait for next Easter! Thanks Zeno....

Property itself was simply just okay, It definitely needs better up keep. Many ways it was nice they offer chairs to take the beach sand toys for the kids to use and beachtowels. The rooms were clean but in need of up keep. The owner seemed to be agitated with the kids.
