A small, quiet hotel that is one block from the Atlantic Ocean. The rooms are small but comfortable. No elevator, but it is only two stories tall. No pool, but you do have an ocean Next door. It is in the heart of Fort Lauderdale Beach. Close to a number of restaurants.

We were very excited about the location. Close to the beach. But the room had a horrible smell of mold. I have never stayed somewhere with odor deodorizer. Very happy we were there one night! Would never stay there again or recommend it!

The terrace was very nice
The shower was amazing. Good water pressure
Yes, there’s a drug store just south of there. It’s a chain one but I didn’t see much in the way of drugs! Mostly vacation goodies, snacks, drinks, beach things. You’ll find all you need there.

Do you offer continental breakfast?
Yes and it was very good, Cereal, milk, orange juice, yoghurt, a selection of cereal bars and if you didn't like the flavour or cereal they put in your room for you, they were more than happy for you to go and choose the flavour or your choice!

When we were there, the gate was never locked, or even closed, and no one will be in the office at those hours. We had no luck whatsoever getting through to anyone on the 24-hour emergency line when we had an emergency, so you might need to make prior arrangements as far as leaving keys.
