When we checked in and went to our room, there was a bad odor and smell of cigarette smoke. There was warm air blowing from the air conditioner and it took 5 hours for someone to come and repair it. The bed linens were torn and stained. The WiFi did not work and my husband had to go to a...

This is a medium-sized hotel near the restaurants and beach at Lauderdale-by-the-sea. The staff was nice. the kitchenette was new and the place was quiet. The first room we got smelled like cigarettes, so we asked for another room, and the second room was much better. The pool is surrounded by palm trees and is comfortable. The beds were also...

I and my girlfriend stayed at the Away Inn for an entire week in early July, it was my first visit the Fort Lauderdale area and Lauderdale by the Sea is a very nice upscale part of that area. The Away Inn is a short, easy and safe walk to a clean, nice beach as well as literally across a...

Whatever you do , do not stay at this Motel, first off, it's dirty and the maids do not do a thorough job of cleaning, evidenced by crumbs on the counter that were never cleaned upp the two days we were there. However the worst crime, would be that they were given a credit card to put all the charges...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. Room was clean and had a nice kitchenette. Beds were comfortable. Air conditioner was a bit noisy, though. Five minute walk to the beach. Publix, Subway, Dunkin Donuts, as well as the pier, are also a short walk. Thanks to Michelle and Dorothy, the hotel manager, who were always smiling and...

We were eaten up by BEDBEDS!!! We'd never even SEEN a bedbug before visiting here but OMG! We had a total of over 36 bites on the first night and then we were killing the big bloody rascals all morning - and they were filled with OUR BLOOD! The owner promised a solution but nothing happened until our last day...

Dear Guest We are sorry this happened to you. We believe we did everything possible to help in this situation, as well as refund as much money as was warranted. We even moved you to a different room as well as upgraded you to a suite. Unfortunately, it seems, you were not satisfied with either the refund or the suite....

Dorothy and Michele were great to work with and very accommodating! The rooms were very nice and clean. Quick access to the beach and walking distance to the downtown area and pier. Great to have the shopping, breakfast and strip mall right next to the Away Inn.

We only stayed one night on a business trip and was excited to see all of the cleanliness awards posted when we checked in. so we were a little surprised when we got to our room. Still using old style spreads and blankets and the room was in need of updating and remodel for sure. We didn't take off flip...

We stayed for one night in January 2016, after several days in the Keys. The Away Inn staff was courteous, our room was very clean, spacious, and served its purpose for a one night stay. Yes, I would recommend this place and would stay here again. Was within walking distance to many nice restaurants.

What a pity we can't give this hotel a higher rating but I'm afraid the room we had (709) was the most difficult room we have had to sleep in. The badly installed air conditioning unit makes so much noise that it was impossible to sleep the first night. The second night was cooler so we were able to turn...
