“Friendly and quaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

My mother and I decided to escape the North East Weather for a few days and after some research looking for a hotel that was fairly inexpensive and with in walking distance of restaurants, we found this place. We took a cab from FFL (expect to spend $40 one way), we arrived earlier than check in time. The front desk allowed us to settle in early and we were very happy to be on the first floor outside the pool area. The pool area had plenty of lounge chairs, tables with umbrellas and surrounding palm trees and greenery. The crowd was an more mature crowd (a lot of snowbirds) therefore it was very quiet and relaxing. The rooms are comfy, however they can use some updating, but overall clean. A very short walk will bring you to a variety of different restaurants and a couple of ice cream shops. Anglins Pier is right there which is nice to check out ($2 per person) and they also have a fantastic restaurant where you can grab a bite to eat and cocktail while looking at the beach. If you decide to save some $$, there is a Publix about 1/2 Mile up the street as the rooms have refrigerators (I think others have a kitchen) so you can stock up at Publix instead of spending all your money eating out. You can eat near the pool and relax in the sun. The hotel also has a couple of outside grills for anyone to use. Overall, this stay was very pleasant, we enjoyed the friendly management and other visitors. One other positive note, the hotel has beach chairs you can borrow (free of charge) to sit on the beach with. The only downside is the room was cleaned once when we were there and we had a small ant problem, but it didn't change the outcome of our stay. Happy travels everyone!!

Room Tip: If you plan on staying for an extended period, you should look for a room with a kitchen to save on...

This was my second stay at this hotel. Previously, I was not pleased by the housekeeping service or the room. Fortunately, I gave it another chance and was wowed! Our room included a small kitchen which was stocked with everything you might think of except for food items. The room itself was not modern, but was clean and comfortable. The exterior of the property boasts beautiful palm trees and flowers and various spots to sit and relax. There are two pools and a laundry. It is very close to a supermarket as well as the shopping area and beach. You don't really need to use your car.

Room Tip: Request a room near the pool...they appear to be larger.

We stayed for 5 nights during our tour of Florida and came to love this hotel. At first when we booked in we were unimpressed by the gentleman on reception who didn.t offer any form of welcome. The reviews from other tripadvisor comments said how friendly the staff were and frankly we didnt find that to be the case and wondered what we had done ! But throughout our stay we rather warmed to him, and maybe that is just the way he is! The hotel however filled our every need. Our room with a kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed, and we managed to cook a few meals to keep the price of our holiday down a little. We did have a problem when the oven just stopped working during one of our meals, but the microwave saved the day! The hotel is right on a main road and quite noisy over the weekend, but it is very centrally located and only one block from the sea. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in an excellent location. It is less than a 5 minute safe walk to gorgeous beach, shopping and restaurants. The outside grounds are breathtaking with flowers, palm trees, foliage. We loved the beautiful common areas outside (pools, hot tub, serene lush landscaping).
They do not provide poolside towels and housekeeping does not like guests taking towels from room to the pool. They really seemed strict and concerned about utilization of towels. I accidently spilled a cup of coffee on the kitchen floor and quickly grabbed a nearby towel to clean it up. Later that day the housekeeper approached us at the hot tub and questioned us/scolded us for getting the towel so dirty. Although we were wrong to use a room towel to clean the coffee spill, this was embarrassing!
The room doors open up straight to shared balcony/walkway outside that overlooks the common areas. We loved easy access to sit outside and drink coffee or a beer overlooking the tropical serene grounds. However we did find there to be too much noise room at night from other guests having a good time outside in these common areas. The noise level seemed similar to sleeping in a tent at a campground. We needed to utilize "white noise" on phone to drown out the voices to get sleep.
Overall excellent value! We loved this resort and can not wait to go back. It is very clean and beautiful and the location is perfect. We would most definitely stay again. We would bring a few extra beach towels and make sure we have white noise capacity for nighttime.

Location is fantastic, near the wonderful beach of Lauderdale-by-the-sea (only a 3 minute walk). We loved the charming 70's decoration, the outdoor jacuzzi and the friendly and helpful owners of the resort. The rooms are very clean. Good Wifi and free parking space. The resort is located on street side of Ocean Drive near traffic light so there is a continueous noise of running cars and motorcycles. It didn't bother us. We've booked an extra night, that much we loved it!
