My partner and I stayed at this wonderful motel. I know when we hear the word motel we get nervous. But let me tell you! This place is amazing! The rooms we very clean, the beds we comfortable! The staff were amazing. You are within walking distance to great restaurants and bars! We will be coming back forsure!!!!
Whenever I’m back home I always stay at the Castle by The Sea…. Always good… no surprises… Nice clean and neat room… and could mattresses!…as always Renee, The hotel manager… who’s been there a long time, is on top of every detail… always helpful and has a wealth of information about Fort Lauderdale…. Knows about the good places to go and also the places to avoid… every time I come back it’s just always a good experience… just like old times!…
We stayed here for 7 nights. We had one of the bedrooms on the bottom floor, with 2 double beds, a little fridge, a microwave and a coffee machine. The air-conditioning works very well and its quiet. It was a nice room and big enough for the 3 of us. The pool is nice and we never felt it was too crowded. The location is great. Very close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Renee is very nice and all of the earlier reviews raving about her are 100% true. She is very nice and helpful. Motel provides beach umbrella and chairs which so nice. I would have stayed here again and recommend to others.
Castle by the sea was a really great experience. I would highly recommend to those visiting Lauderdale by the sea. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was great and the rooms are very nice. Very comfortable beds. Will stay there again when I come back to visit. 5 stars!
When I checked in, I was told that the bathroom sink needed caulking, but they didn’t get to it. At about 10:45, everyone in bed, we hear a loud crashing noise from the bathroom. The sink had detached from the wall and was on the floor. Water all over. Called the emergency number, was told that nothing could be done until the next day at 11am!! We were unable to shower, brush teeth, anything to do with the bathroom. At 10:50 the next morning, I was at the office door, could see someone in there and she refused to open the door or answer the phone until about 11:30 am. She actually tried to blame us, that we already knew something was wrong with it when we checked in. Why did she provide a room that was a danger!!!! If that sink had fallen in someone foot, then what?!!!! Do not stay here.…
This was our first time in Fort Lauderdale and staying at this hotel made it better. The staff was very friendly and helpful. But note they are only in from 10-6 each day! They provided beach chairs, beach towels and an umbrella for our time on the beach. Because of staffing you have to ask for things or your room to be cleaned but the staff was prompt and did a really good job. It is about 3 blocks from the beach and so much cheaper! The only negative I have is that the shower took a while to warm up and would go back and forth between hot and cold. Because it is a smaller hotel, it was very quiet and the pool area was so nice. It's a great place to eat, relax or watch the sun set. I highly recommend staying here.
This hotel is in a perfect located, right across the street from police station and walking distance to the beach, pier, restaurants, and coffee shops. They provided beach towels and chairs and even had pool noodles and floats to play with. Only thing that threw me off was it was not the cleanest by the pool and had to keep asking for my room to be cleaned and to get more towels. Iguanas by the pool were so freaking cool!
I chose this property because of the many raving reviews about Renee (manager) at this charming motel and she certainly didn't fall short. She stored my luggage until the room was ready and even carried my luggage up to my room. It's centrally located in such a great safe area (across the street from Police Station) that was within walking distance to the beach, pier, restaurants, bars and grocery store. The rooms and pool were clean and updated and they provided beach towels & chairs and even had floats and boogie boards at the pool. I will definitely return to this GEM. Thank you Renee for a pleasant stay.
This is the third time I have stayed at Castle By the Se in a little over a year! It’s 1/2 block from the beach and clean! Renee is the manager and very helpful! Renee is the reason I don’t look for other lodging!
Met Renee on my visit over Valentine's weekend! She could not be more accommodating. She assisted me in moving my room that was a little on the smaller side into a larger room with a kitchen. She could not have been nicer to make our stay more enjoyable. Always available for fresh towels, the beach chairs and a fresh clean room! She does it all such a hard worker. I loved it and her hospitality so much I have just booked another stay coming up at the end of the month. Cant wait to go back! Thanks Renee for all you do to make our stay with you an enjoyable and comfortable one. You rock!!!!
