Front desk and staff very professional, courteous and helpful. Our stay was very pleasant and the complimentary breakfast was good. Room was very clean. Shuttle bus service to FLL airport was much appreciated. Great value for money. Will definitely stay there again.

Unfortunately our trip started and ended on a sour note with the shuttle service...driver was quite late both times! In between, the food was good and the hotel staff very attentive.

old and musty hotel. used pair of woman's running shorts stuck between round chair/half moon ottoman both looked like they were left over from WWII. The shuttle would not drive us to restaurants, we had to walk 1 mile RT to the store in hot sun😞unacceptable. Overall, experience 3 out of 10

The supervisor doesn't treat us very well. Our check out was at 11:00 but our travel was at 8:00 pm and we have to stay at the lobby. She told us we have to leave tha facility. We were over 20 persons and I belive we we're treat better.

Great service, clean and comfortable. Made a lot of new changes since my last trip last summer and many more new things in the future. Assisted quickly with and AC problem we were having. The beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean.

Ft Lauderdale's best kept secret. This is across the street from the Convention Center & walking distance from several restaurants, grocery stores & pharmacies. If you walk past the Convention Center & under the draw bridge, there's a park where the Miami ferries dock that is a fishing spot.
