“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

We had a great ocean front view. It's right on the water! Comfy beds and a full sized fridge = yay! Ok, so the continental breakfast wasn't fantastic, but everything else was great!
Would definitely recommend it!

I stayed at this hotel while attending my aunt's funeral, actually my family and I had about 5 rooms in total and we all had nothing but good things to say about the hotel. We arrived at different times of the day and and we all got the types of of rooms we requested. The close proximity to the beach was a great distraction for everyone and the hotel's pool and hot tub was also great. My only complaint would be how small the breakfast area was, my family alone could have filled the breakfast area, but being on the beach, we were able to go outside and have breakfast. I would stay with them again if I am ever in the area.

Here for a wedding. This room was huge! It's perfect for if you're staying for a couple of days. There is a full size refrigerator and stove. There is also a huge tub that is separate from the shower. The balcony was the cherry on top! The room had an ocean view and it's literally right on the beach! The staff is very friendly!
The only down side is that no rooms have king beds, they are all queen beds. Also, there isn't much to do around the hotel, so you'll need a car. Also, the outside of the rooms could use some work, but once inside the room, it's great!

I just recently visited the Pompano Beach Area and I had a wonderful stay in this hotel. The hotel itself was very upscale and a great place for vacation. The pools are great and the view was incredible. Our suite had everything we needed, including a full kitchen and they were very clean and spacious. The staff was professional and helpful, but very down to earth and friendly as well. I have stayed in this hotel in the past, and there were a lot of new improvements that made our stay memorable. We were very impressed and will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The higher the room, the better the view! :)

Yes, there are honest hotel workers at the Residence Inn at Pompano Beach--EVELYN. She secured my purse, containing my wallet and cash, and returned it to me intact. Nothing was missing.
This Residence Inn is beachfront with a fully modern kitchen and washer/dryer set. Housekeeping ran the dishwasher daily. Our room had a large shower (separate tub), and tasteful furnishings. The bed was perfect for me. Clean with a full breakfast menu (oatmeal, too). The location was ideal. We went to the beach, casino, racetrack, and lesiure dining. I enjoyed several Spa specials. We drove into Ft. Lauderdale down US1 to see the nice hotels, and shops. We will return to this Residence Inn. Next time we will go deep sea fishing (it rained).

Stayed there the week of July 4th. We had a 2BR/2BA suite on the 10th floor and the view was awesome! The hotel facilities were very nice - pool, spa, beach, lobby, etc. Very clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly. The room was very quiet. It was a very good deal for right on the beach with that size room plus a small kitchen. The room was clean and had obviously been renovated as everything looked quite new. For the problems - valet service was a bit slow at times and expensive. It seemed that at 1st they parked our car on site, but I guess the $2 tip we gave with each dropoff and pickup wasn't enough as they started parking it offsite somewhere which delayed the time it took to get the car. Some of the recent room renovations were done very poorly. Our kitchen sink fell out from under the counter. While maintenance was prompt, they struggled to fix it and were a bit of a nuisance. Housekeeping was spotty at best when we requested late cleanings. The dishwasher didn't work and we had to wash dishes by hand. One of the bathroom doors had a handle with no lock, it was a "closet" handle. Several outlets in the room did not work. There is no oven, just a combo microwave/convection oven. The had no baking dishes so we had to improvise and use the glass turntable. Breakfast was OK, but the seating area was small and they closed too early for a holiday week. All in all we had a good stay and it was a very good value. The poor work on the renovations is not the hotel's fault, just poor contractors.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room, higher floor close to beach side.

We stayed at this hotel for three days last weekend. It is in real need of renovations or just plain "upkeep". The rooms were ok, but the so called "ocean view" is only partial from most rooms. Beach is not too nice since errotion has caused a big inclination in the beach, also water was full of weeds, although I realize this is not hotel's fault. Beware there is no self parking at all so you pay $20 a day for parking and $20 per day to rent chairs with cabana style cover. Breakfast is just so so.
