My girlfriend and I stayed here for five nights, 3/22-3/27, during our vacation to South Florida. We booked a room with poolside view/balcony and a single king sized bed.
We were very pleased with our stay! The property was well maintained and clean. The hotel employees were all top notch and professional! From front desk and doorman, to the shuttle van driver who was called upon to rush us a couple miles up the road to the Japanese restaurant with only ten minutes before they closed! He promptly returned to pick us back up after a quick call to his cell phone after we'd finished dinner.
While we didn't spend too much time at the hotel during our stay, we did enjoy the gorgeous poolside area one afternoon. After long day excursions, we wish guests had been able to use the pool/spa later than 10:30pm, so long as they aren't disruptive. We did appreciate still being able to sit outside around the pool lounging area late at night, as opposed to having it shut of completely. (Escaping cold New England winter, we wanted to spend as much time outside as possible! Not sitting in the room in the evening!)
There is lots of dinning opportunities relatively close by if you turn left out of the parking lot and drive a short distance down Glades Rd. There's a Macdonalds and strip mall area almost directly behind the hotel where one can walk for basic needs. The hotel courtesy Shuttle operates until about 11:30pm and will take you anywhere within a three mile radius of the hotel.
Parking is free, but on full nights the lot fills up fast! One night when we arrived back to the hotel, the only six or seven spots were occupied by a mid-sized RV parked across all of them! We had to park behind the hotel next to the dumpster. Not sure if it was even a parking spot?
Wifi worked great. Laundrey facilities were convenient. Business center great. Also, I liked how the hotel would print out and post in the elevator each morning, a list of events and activities in the area for the day.
Only minor complaints were the standard, non-suite room's poolside balcony were standing room only. Get a suite if you want a sit down balcony.
There was some visible mold growing in the shower tiles. I barley noticed, but the GF did.
Not accommodating to smokers. Non-smoking property. Not even outside in the open air! But these days, I guess smoking just isn't PC? It's a losing battle and I can deal with inconvenience of staying at non-smoking properties. I think open air bans are a bit extreme though.
The majority of our time in South Florida took us south too FLL and Miami areas. The hotel is situated less than two minutes from the ramp to I-95. Fort Lauderdale is a quick 15-20 minute drive. Miami about 45 minutes. You can also hop on the Tri-Rail commuter train close to the hotel. It goes south to Miami with stops along the way in Fort Lauderdale downtown, FLL and MIA airports, and Miami. Although slightly closer to Palm Beach, this hotel is a conveinient and less costly alternative to Fort Lauderdale hotels. At least when there during peak season.
Overall, great hotel and I would think about staying again if I am in the area in the future!
