“Good value and pet friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We stayed here for two nights in room 340 - one king bed. We were at the end of a hall and it was very quiet. We chose this hotel because 1) it was pet friendly and 2) close to attractions we wanted to see in Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The king bed was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was clean as well. The hot breakfast was a plus - pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy. They also had oatmeal, pastries, fruit, hot tea, coffee, milk and juice available. We didn't spend a lot of time in our room but we felt this was a great value for a quick weekend get away. There were a lot of restaurants nearby as well. I travel with my small dog and will definitely consider staying here the next time I am in Fort Lauderdale/Miami. I like that it is close to Sawgrass Mills Outlets as well.

We have been staying for 3 days & have 2 days more to go...if it was up to me we would have moved to a different hotels by now. 1. They didn't have a king room available when we checked in (which is what we booked), so my husband & i have been sleeping in the 2 double beds :(. 2. Breakfast is a disaster! Busy all times of morning w/ "vultures" grabbing all they can carry. There are pictures of cinnamon rolls everywhere , but I have yet seen an actual one. The location is great & the grounds are nice for our small dog to take walks around; but I saw a Courtyard by Marriott that is right down the road that looks nicer!

We spent a weekend there, and as soon as we entered the room it smelled like smoke we told the girl at the front desk if she could please move us and she said they didnt have any other rooms, while online it showed they did and when I called priority club they told me they had rooms as well. The front desk staff is very rude and do not tend to guests needs. First time I ever had a problem with a hotel. The hotel is next to a quality inn with bums, pimps, and junkies hanging around. Not a safe area for kids either.

I have traveled all over the world and am a Platinum member with Holiday Inn. This is one of the best expresses out there. The service is exceptional. The staff is incredible. Especially the front desk staff. I will always stay at this hotel when I am in the area.

You have got a great hotel!

Room Tip: Suites are awesome. Don't miss the breakfast.
