We just stayed here prior to a cruise. Overall it was quiet and clean. They have a great little area by the pool to hang out. Great location... steps from the beach. Overall everything that we needed!

The place has a few years behind it but is kept very nice. It was the cleanest hotel room i ever stayed in. 1/2 block from the beach and have a comfortable vibe. Large TV with lots of selection and it came with a good cup of coffee in the AM

Good location. The hotel is poor, service very poor. The staff visiting your room leaves the door open etc. Swimming pool is under construction, the work begins early in the morning. Just avoid this place.

This property, while not "the Ritz", is comfortable, clean and very convenient to the Central Ft beach area. We found the staff extremely helpful and kind and couldn't do enough for us during our stay with them. The bed was dreamy! A quiet option too with concrete walls between rooms.

Clean for the most part, fairly dated. Lack of daily service one day of my stay. Terrible lowflow shower pressure. My last night I had small bugs flying around, not sure if they were mosquitoes or not. The pool was empty, they did tell me they had another pool at another property I could use. Not wanting to walk to...

Fortuna hotel is a difficult place to rate. The location is one block from the beach so that is a big plus. I would give the hotel staff a 5 star rating! They were awesome! Very friendly, accommodating and professional. The hotel is under major renovations and you can see that the outcome is going to be wonderful. We visited...

Nice area, nice room but only 1 of 5 days with room cleaning. And when I asked for it I don´t get an excuse... It is close to the beach, close to restaurants and bars. The pool was closed for several days...
