“nice hotel, front desk is no help. beware of the shuttle”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

The man at the front desk was very brief and unhelpful with any questions be had such as airport directions, or anything else we needed. I forgot my sunglasses at the desk and when I returned to find them, he would not even respond to my questions regarding my loss. My fault but at least he could respond. Very rude. breakfast is premade eggs and sausage and the usual stuff. there was plenty, but it was early. My friend had a 6:20 AM flight. the first shuttle left at 5. Plenty of time. NOT. the shuttle left for another hotel further away from the airport. The passengers pleaded with the shuttle to go directly and after the second stop and waiting for the new people to get on, he left without them but wasted precious time.
Our room was quite and very spacious. I really liked the room and the beds were sufficient.

Room Tip: rooms on the east side are more quiet. we had 201 and it was great.

I want to thank you for choosing to stay at our establishment. Our hotel shares the shuttle with the Econo Lodge and if there are some guests that have signed up, he will have to go to the other location and pick them up to get them transferred to the airport. Of course, if nobody has signed up for the shuttle, the driver will go directly to the airport from our establishment.

Please accept our sincerest apologies in regards to the shuttle service and if you are ever in the area again, please give us the opportunity to provide you with a better experience

Thank You

Overall a nice hotel. Not fancy but it had decent rooms in a relatively quite location (non freeway)close to downtown Ft Lauderdale and in walking distance to a few very good restaurants. There is a Walgreen and Publix supermarket nearby. The rooms were clean and the a/c worked fine. Small breakfast area that was well serviced during a busy time and had good choices including two waffle makers, eggs and sausage.

Room Tip: Not much difference in room location. If you use the elevator a lot get a room close to center or if...

From the time we walked in the door, we should have known that we were going to have a bad experience. Desk clerk was not friendly or cooperative, rooms stunk and very dirty. Our clothes and entire suitcase stunk from the smell for days. We left the next morning to stay at a different hotel. After cancelling our reservations...the manager never once asked why or questioned us leaving. The hallways were cluttered with boxes of food, supplies, etc. Breakfast was dry and horrible. I would not recommend staying at this hotel. We were able to find a top notch hotel (100 times better) for the same price.

Nice hotel room. Spacious. Very good breakfast. Stayed 1 night before and after cruise. Book your cruise time at check-in, the shuttles fill up fast. Nice location. Used bus system. Went to White Oakes mall. Lots of eaterys. Used bus and went to beach. Very nice. Ate at mexican restaurant across the street. Very good. Ate dinner at Sweet tomatoes. Very good. Always a wait for shuttles, but worth it. Would go again.

I booked this because the price was reasonable and they had shuttle service. I felt the rooms were large and clean. The shuttle service was great. Quick pick up at the airport and cruise port shuttle was $5.00 a person, but was great service too. The gentlemen who checked us in was friendly and help recommend a place to eat that we could walk to. Yes I would stay here again if I was cruising from Port Everglades. There isn't any other hotels in the direct area, and it is about 3 miles to the beach. But there is a couple restaurants and a Walgreen close by.

This hotel smelt like extreme stale smoke upon arrival. The desk clerk was not very friendly. Once inside the room, there was hair all over, dirty sheets, and our room smelt really bad. Our clothes in our suitcase picked up the smell. Would not recommend staying here. Upon check out the General Manager did not even ask why we were unhappy. Poor service.

Our hotel has a limited amount of smoking rooms; however, we are in the process of becoming a 100% nonsmoking establishment.

We have stayed at this hotel several times before and after cruises - the last time two years ago. We were disappointed to see how tired and worn the place is beginning to look. We had a large and comfortable suite, but the sofa had a rip in it, the door was gouged and had paint (or something) splattered on it. Cabinets were likewise dented and scratched. It seems to have been neglected over the past year or so. On the positive side the staff at the desk were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was fine, and of course the location continues to be very satisfactory with a Walgreen's next door and several restaurants nearby. And just to confirm our disappointment, they're now charging $5 per person for a shuttle to the cruise port. Next year I think we'll look around to see what else is available.
