“Very friendly comfy motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The Ronny Dee Resort Motel has all the comforts of home at a value price. The kitchenette and bathroom were reminiscent of the 70's but all the amenities were there and both were very clean. Our beds were very comfortable and our room faced onto the poolside patio. We didn't get to try the pool but the water felt warm and it appeared very inviting and clean. The location is only a block back from the beach, a 5 min walk at the most. The owner, Richard, reccommended a great pizza restaurant that we probably would have missed without his suggestion. We most likely will return on our next visit to Pompano Beach.

Room Tip: Ask for poolside for a more pleasant view

We were visiting friends in the area, so we just needed a place to sleep. We were not impressed at all! One window in our room had looseleaf paper taped to it to act like a shade--enough said! There seemed to be some long term residents at the motel that made us a little uncomfortable. There was no safe or hairdryer in the room. We left our valuables with our friends--we did not feel comfortable leaving anything in the room. We have stayed at many budget hotels in the past, but we just didn't feel safe staying at this one. I would not recommend this hotel.

It is in a nice location in Pompano Beach, close to beach, restaurants, bars and shops, and the pool area was clean and the staff was nice, but I would not be comfortable staying there again.

Room Tip: across or down the street at another place

The Ronny Dee is a very reasonably priced small family operation. A great value, location and pool. Only a few steps from the beach and you don't have to stay in one those expensive cement tower hotels. The rooms are nice and clean. This is a perfect place to just relax and enjoy the sunshine. The owners are extremely friendly and make you feel very welcome and always willing to accomodate your requests. Our entire family has been going there for many years and can't wait to return. You always see return guests year after year. I would recommend the Ronny Dee to anyone looking for a great value. Nice place.

We've been going the the Ronny Dee Motel with family for many years. The current owners are nice people originally from New England. The rooms are reasonably priced and we love to plan family trips there. They have a nice pool and just a short walk to the beach. Many of the guests are return customers and a friendly bunch.

Room Tip: There's a 2 bedroom apartment for rent that works well with families.

My husband and I booked this room at the last minute and because of that ended up in the last room available. We ended up on the tenant side where the rooms were a total disaster. Plaster falling of the walls no smoke detector, ceiling tiles falling down, lamp shades filthy, no security lock on the door, toilet seat broken, toilet loose, stained toilet, slept with our clothes on with towels over the pillows and covered only with the sheet. Bed spread probably never washed. We arrived there late at nite tried to find something else nothing available. A few cocktails before bedtime eased the shock. We did consider sleeping in the car. thank god we only booked one nite.

There are several problems with this property not being kept up but being held together literally with duct tape. Although the owners are very nice, it does not make up for the need for refurbishment. Cable tv which does not air in English is a problem! There are tenants living at this facility which makes one wonder if it is a motel or an apartment house. The behavior of some of these "characters" makes it feel very unsafe. I think the owners have to decide if they are catering to tourists or tenants. We have no intentions of ever staying there again!!!

Our room was small and dirty. They are not up to code, not enough plugs for the amenities let alone what the typical traveler needs. Had to unplug a light to plug in the clock, couldn't plug in a hair drier in the bath. Coffee pot, no cups at all! No ice, broken window, shower didn't drain, free parking but right on the street, sometimes impossible to get out. The grounds are nice as was the staff, but not very knowledgeable about the area. It wasn't worth $105 a night and we booked for two, our mistake, never again!
