This hotel doesn't have everything, there's no room service, it's a bit understaffed, and the breakfast isn't great, but the property is gorgeous and the hotel owner is dedicated to provided excellent service. I booked a room with a ocean view and a private balcony. The property is well kept with a lovely pool and a beach that is not... More

My husband and I rented a standard room at this hotel in the spring of 2016. While we weren't expecting a large room, we were not prepared for the excessively small room we were put in either. Upon entering the room, we quickly learned that the closet was so small that we had to put our suitcases in front of... More

This is our second time staying here. We love this motel. Great location with lots of restaurants and shopping close enough to walk to. And the view! Large balcony to sit and drink coffee and watch the sun come up. Staff is friendly and attentive, just ask and they'll help with anything. Kitchen could have used some more things but... More

The hotel sits in a perfect location on the beach and has a wonderful pool, beautiful indoor bar/restaurant. Walking distance to the fishing pier, shops etc...The owner/chef has created a warm and "family" like atmosphere I felt at home in. The staff were welcoming and friendly , always going above and beyond to help. The suites were very clean and... More

Loved the Sea Lord. First of all, they were the one place in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea that would work with my travel arrangements. While I know that it was the busy season, I had one night that I wanted to spend in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea because my parents honeymooned here 50 years ago. I wanted to see it and spend my last night in... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in April. Hotel was pretty empty so it was nice and quiet. It's right on the beach has a small pool and includes a very meager breakfast. The hotel's photos make everything look much bigger then it is. The room was comfortable and clean. There's a mini fridge and microwave in the room. The best... More

The title is accurate; however, I had to say Very Good instead of Excellent because of the skimpy, thin towels and the less-than-good breakfast. Actually had to check out a worn-out beach towel at the front desk and bring it back or be fined $25! The towel may have been about a $3 value! That type of cheapness was insulting... More

The king room that we had faced the ocean with great views. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom a good size. The inclusive breakfast we had was ok but rather meagre and mean. Something needs to be done with the Bar and Restaurant before they are successful. The Bar, in particular, was manned by Richard, the owner's father,... More

Best. Balcony. Ever. Have been coming here for over 30 years. The location is great. Rooms with kitchen, comfy bed, as noted incredible view. Staff very accommodating. Love the ocean front king suite. Ask the owner to make you the best drink: the Sea Lord antibiotic!
