This was a real find: close to the beach (across the street), free guest parking, outdoor meeting spaces and sun deck, complimentary beach supplies and an outdoor grill! The rooms were contemporary/modern (think IKEA) and clean and quiet. The only minimal detriment is that the roof-top deck closes relatively early, as it seems it would be a nice place for... More

Thanks Brian for sharing your thoughts about the Snooze! Since we are a small boutique hotel, we can show much more of the beauty and style that is Fort Lauderdale Beach. I have had some guests inquire about having the rooftop terrace open later. Right now, it is open from 9am to 10pm. We decided on those hours because among... More

From the looks of it, it is just a small building amongst major hotels on the strip. 18 rooms, with ocean views! Clean rooms, super friendly staff, and restaurant only steps away! The patios were worth it! Amazing views! And they offer beach gear at no additional charge (you will pay at least $50 for chairs under an umbrella on... More

Had an entire day to spend in Ft. Lauderdale, and as usual pulled up my TripAdvisor app. Wanted to find a spot to crash in near the beach just for about 9 hours or so, that was relatively inexpensive. Number 1 would not allow early check in and number 2 was $225 ... not an option after spending thousands on... More

This litlle hotel is right across the street from the beach. The room (405) had an ocean view and was very comfy, updated and affordable. You couldn't ask for more for the price. No pool, but that was fine and the rooftop area was great for viewing the stars. Close to all the restaurants and just a GEM for sure!... More

I wanted to stay close to the beach for the day in between getting off a cruise and flying home. This was perfect. He had an inexpensive room where I was able to nap in and go take a walk on the beach. The owner was very friendly!

The hotel was within walking distance of the beach. Eateries and small shops were just minutes away. What I liked most was that the beach was just acrossed the street with easy access. The hotel provided umbrellas, chairs and beach towels. Loved sitting on the balcony wathing the waves come in. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Snooze is a modern take on the essentials needed for your home away from home. We believe traveling in style should be affordable without any hidden costs - just pay your room rate plus tax and that's it! We offer a clean, comfortable and modern room, plus add free parking, wifi, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. Keep in mind we offer the essentials so...No pool, no 24 hr service, no phones, no spa, no bell boy, no valet and no chocolates on your pillows. Why spend the extra money on extras you don't need? We are the last oceanfront Ft. Lauderdale hotel left with less than 20 rooms. There are plenty of "big box" branded hotels out there and we are proud we are not one of them. Snooze is located directly accross the street from Fort Lauderdale Beach next to the Westin and Ritz Carlton hotels. Direct Ocean View, Kitchenette and Hotel Rooms are available at the property. The airport (7 miles), cruise terminal (5 miles) and convention center (5 miles) are just minutes away. Free Wi-Fi and beach chairs and towels. Free parking as long as it is not an over-sized vehicle. Our check-in age is 25 and older. ... more   less
