“Would Come Back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Found this on Expedia. My friend wanted beach front. The hotel is situated on the beach, and provides towels and chairs. Lots of tables if you want to eat outside as well. Plenty of parking as well.

The location is at the end of El Mar drive, this is a HUGE asset since it is very quiet and peaceful.

Airport is VERY close.

Room was clean and bed was very comfortable. The fridge was full sized so we loved that. Cable TV selection was good, and tv was nice. Wifi was fast and worked well.

A few things did irritate me though.

Outlets were worn, my charger kept falling out of one of them. Also, some face plates were cracked, and two switches didn't seem to do anything. These are cheap things to fix.

Exterior of the hotel was a bit tired and needs a face lift, but I understand that is expensive.

Hotel does not provide maid service on Sundays. Very weird. Even Econolodge does that.

All said, I would return.

I stayed in Room 111.

We spend 3 days here and we loved it!!! the staff was very friendly, everything was clean the pool was immaculate, the room was very nice, the outdoors was amazingly beautiful it was like a little paradise, the beach only a few feet from the hotel, I will definetely come back here.
I would like to thank Tiffany for all of her help she was amazing and very pleasant.
Thank you all for a wonderful birthday weekend!!!!

Room Tip: I think that with a family is best to book the efficiencies rather than a singular room.

I like low-rise spots, without elevators and there is a nice pool, lots of lounges and chairs. Beautiful beach at your doorstep and good staff to look after you.
Light breakfast each morning - help yourself and hope to go back again this year.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are preferable, but if you do not or cannot take stairs, nothing wrong with main floo...

Recently stayed in Lauderdale by the sea at the Captians Quarters the room was actually the room on the website,hotel staff were more the friendliest ever and the rooms are super clean. Ive lived in South Florida and this small quaint little hotel is a diamond among the big ones, Will definately go back and would reccomend to just about anyone especially with children and concerns on cleaniness

Room Tip: No worries about clean rooms or security and is wonderfully located in lauderdale by the sea.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights this weekend (6/21-6/23/2014). It is old and run down. The only room available was a suite, there was nothing suite about it. The first room we were given was 02, it reminded me of being in an old dingy basement. The towels were stained and the shower had toe prints in it. I went to the front desk and the woman was very nice and showed us another room, Room 06. We packed our stuff back up and moved to this room. It was a lot nicer; however, it still was not very clean. Our feet were dirty from the floor, I found a hair on the shelf in the refrigerator, and the bathroom floor had some hairs, the shower tub appeared to be a little dirty too. The continental breakfast was non-existence on Sunday morning. When I went down at 9:30 the only thing out was one coffee creamer, no: cups, juice, muffins or sweetener. Pool towels were also non-existent. Every time we went to the front desk we were told to come back in an hour. We were finally given two bathroom towels. There was also no maid service on Sunday, which I already knew about. But paying $383 dollars for 2 nights was way too expensive for this place for no: maid service, breakfast, coffee, pool towels. Oh, and the tiki bar they advertise next door was disgusting. When we first arrived, I was wondering why no one was there, then I knew why, it smells like “throw-up”. The next evening, thinking maybe the smell would be gone, again no one there, it still smelled the same. As soon as we woke up on Monday, we packed our stuff and got out of there. The first thing we did when we got home was shower.

Stayed there one week in a hotel room. Early check in and later check out without problems - thank you Tffany from the front desk. Rooms was clean, bed comfortable. Nice pool area with plenty beachchairs. Also chairs for use on the beach. Walking distance to restaurants, bars,publix, cvs ....

Room Tip: Room 121 in the 2nd floor had a view from bed to beach.

We stayed there at the end of our trek back to Raleigh from Key West for just one night. I wish we had stayed longer. The room was great. With the Ocean breeze, and view it was perfect! The atmosphere is very relaxed, almost had a "Bed & Breakfast" feel. Up the street there is "the square" with bars, restaurants, and shops. The young lady in reception was extremely helpful and friendly too. Overall I would recommend this to any family and friends ending up in the Lauderdale by the Sea area.
