Great location close to the water's edge. The reefs are about 50 yards from the shore where the lobsters are waiting to be lassoed. Showers and hoses to rinse off your diving gear! Kitchen in rooms help alleviate dining expenses. Very short walk to the Pier where the bars and nightlife are located. Lauderdale by the Sea is a very friendly place. If you do decide to dine out, please checkout Flannigan's off of Atlantic Blvd... great seafood and burgess, but very affordable!
