This building is showing its age but the room was very clean and the bed linens were great. Considering what we paid and how close it is to the beach, I feel like its an excellent value! We got in afterhours and found an envelope with our name taped to the door with instructions how to access our room. They... More

I had such a great time at this place. It's a small place but the room was a perfect size. The pool was clean and a good spot to sunbathe. It's closet to convenience spots and breakfast and a 10 minute walk to the main bars and restaurants. Literally around the corner from the beach and they provide towels and... More

We just got back home after a great 10-day stay at Great Escape Inn, with two adults and 2 kids (2 and 6yrs) we had room 109 and it was perfect for our family with one separate bedroom and a fold out bed in the living room. The location is great with only a few mins walk to beach, restaurants... More

We only stayed here for one night. We arrived at about 6.30 pm to find that there was no-one around to check us in. Panic over though when we found an envelope with all that we needed (including parking permit) stuck to the door of reception. Nice touch. The room was a little small and the bathroom was a little...

We stayed here for just one night as part of a two week holiday and were pleasantly surprised. Upon our arrival at about 6:40pm, I was slightly shocked to find no-one in the office (I hadn't even thought to let them know we may be late checking in). This was no problem and everything was laid out for us with... More

We stayed three nights. The property was very clean and our room was spotless. We got in later in the day so there was an envelope waiting for us since the office was closed. The wifi instructions were waiting for us along with our key and our contract for our stay. The pool and pool area were great. they had... More

We spent three nights here and would happily book again. The rooms ( one bedroom apartment) were spotless and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel provided us with beach chairs, beach towels and a beach umbrella for the duration of our stay, free of charge.

The Great Escape Inn is an independent mom-and-pop place reminiscent of my long-ago youth. I was assigned here by Hotwire and think I may have found my new favorite place in the Ft. Lauderdale area. It's of modest size and lacks many of the "mod cons" (as the British say) many travelers expect or take for granted (no ice machine,... More

Clean rooms, good linens, good furniture for the price. The mattresses were very hard for me so I adjusted myself with the extra pillows. Simple walk to everything. Staff is very friendly. Recommend for the price.

We've stayed at Great Escapes 3 times, including twice this year. The staff is friendly, the hotel has character and is very clean. There is a wonderful beach about a 2 minute walk away. The beds are comfy, wifi works great and the price is right. The place is small and you often get to know the folks who are... More
