Stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise. The rooms are dated but comfortable. The hotel has a fantastic location right on the beach. Great for a walk along the beach or road to Fort Laderdale on Sea for a great night out. Would stay here again

Dingy lobby with furnishing that look like they're from the set of THE MUNSTERS. Elevator to the 9th floor (definitely NOT the penthouse) revealed a drab hallway, dark lighting and our room 912. Entering our room was a joke. The bathtub had porcelain missing in chunks. The AC unit made such a racket (I couldn't upload the movie) that we... More

This place was supposed to be cheaper than the rest, but they charge for everything, including to park your car at your own hotel. Also the building is severely lacking in fire protection and safety. The fire escape is locked, and the beach elevator is in need of repair. The rooms are super outdated, and the towel person is very... More

I recently returned from the Ocean Sky and really enjoyed our experience. We did not rent a car (took uber) and saved money as the car rental plus parking would have been super expensive. (Company that runs the parking lot charges $18 a night to park--not the hotel) But you have to pay to park literally everywhere in the area.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Ocean Sky for 3 nights at the beginning of June. Upon entering the hotel we were pleased with the friendly concierge and appealing lobby décor. Our room had a very clean bathroom, plenty of towels and the beds were quite comfortable. Our balcony had views of the beach and partial view of the... More

We got an awesome price on our room, and considering it was one of the few hotels RIGHT on the beach, we booked it. Upon arrival, we were greeted and checked in by Kyle. We called a few days earlier to request being on a high floor as we read reviews that they were quieter and better views. Kyle couldn't... More
