Accomodation was fine but we were shocked at the way the breakfast worked. Fruit for breakfast was whole fruit and uncut. Very difficult to cut with the plastic utensils provided. I personally hate plastic utensils and polysterine plates. The rest was fine.

Dear Dawmie Glad you liked everything else in the hotel. So sorry that the fruit was an inconvenience. Our fruit is whole in all Holiday Inn Express Hotels as per food safety laws we cannot cut the fruit as we are not equipped w Full Service kitchens. Safe travels Jo and entire team

I was in Ft Lauderdale for a car auction and stayed at this Holiday Inn. The room, breakfast, and ammenities were fine. What bugged me was I ordered a cab when we were leaving for the airport and the desk clerk said that she knew of a firm that would be cheaper. So, I agreed, and when we got to...

Dear Terri, Thank You for staying with us and for this review. Glad you enjoyed the hotel.

We came in last minute without reservations, and the front desk clerk, Greg, promptly got us a reservation at a very reasonable price. He was also very helpful and enthusiastic about offering advice for the next leg of our trip down to the Keys. The room was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Greg!

Stayed for a night prior to a cruise. About 15 min drive to port. Much cheaper hotel too then staying near the port. Nice and friendly staff. Rooms were nice and breakfast was included and decent as well. Would return if cruising from port Everglades.
