This was one of the best places I've ever stayed at on a vacation, and I wish I had known about this place before. The service was great, the prices were extremely affordable, and the private, 2 bedroom apartment that I rented started to feel like my very own vacation home. There's also plenty of parking, and the location is...

I arrived at this hotel after a long over-night flight. The reception hours are very limited so I sat by the pool from 6am until after 9am to check in. I at least wanted to leave my bag. I was told I couldn't check in until after 3pm although the girl occupying my private room had left. I was told...

More like staying in your own apartment for one night. Less impersonal than a motel and with better service and cool neighbors to boot. Amenities are are basic but everything you might need can be found within reasonable walking distance. The well prepared traveler will have no problems there. You cannot beat the combination of price and location. Accommodations are...

This hostel is just a ten minute bus ride from the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood Airport. The bus stop is a block and a half away from the hostel and cost me $1.75. I stayed in a great apartment style dorm with friendly roommates. The shower was hot and had more pressure then I needed. Crazy but true. The guests who I...

Until this trip I always had a lot of luck in getting a deal at the Hilton Marina on Priceline... usually as low as $45/night. But it looks like they may have parted ways because I tried bidding up to $75 and no go. So since I was traveling solo, I thought I might give this a go. I didn't...

I stayed in the hostel and started having terrible experiences from the minute I arrived. Although I reserved this place with more than a month in advance, the owner seemed unprepared for my arrival so had to improvise a place for me to stay. Although most rooms might look reasonably clean and livable, your bed can be just an inflatable...
