I'd give it a negative review if that were possible. I get that the property is dated but there are so many things that can be done here to give it curb appeal that aren't costly. My over-all assumption is that this place and the surrounding properties that they own and operate

I want to first say, I hate leaving bad reviews and I completely understand how frustrating it can be as a business to receive. I want to first start off by saying I found Galt Villas online through Hotwire. I did some research and while it’s not a 5 star hotel the reviews

Check in was a nightmare and the room looks way better on the internet than in real life. I have more than 50 stays with hotels.com, and this was the worst. i would never return here and please, do yourself a favor and find another place, there are so so many better choices

This is a motel that claims it’s a hotel. The only pictures they show you our interior shots or I believe photos from other properties. When we saw what we had checked into we spoke to the manager Horatio. He had a thick accent which made him difficult to understand. We told him

Dear C3674HOanthonyb, Thank you very much for your review. We greatly appreciate your feedback, and are sorry that you were not satisfied with your stay. We always strive to provide the best customer service, however at times we are bound by our contracts and policies with OTA's. If you booked your reservation through Expedia, the 24 hour cancelation penalty applies and will have to be mediated with Expedia directly, and not the hotel. We thank you for your understanding, and hope that you will give us another chance to meet your expectations when you return to Fort Lauderdale. Best regards, Maria

It's about 3 blocks. Physically it's close but due to tall condos you need to cross the street and walk south till you get to a road that has access. I enjoy walking so not a big deal but with small children and lots of beach gear it is more of a challenge
