“Terrible, Disgusting, Disgusting motel!! even animals should not be kept at this motel!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

what can I can? every single aspect of this stay just bring one word to my mind and that is Disgusting!!... Disgusting rooms, molds everywhere, dirty and old bathrooms, terrible beds, disgusting and old breakfast ( like waffles that have been sitting out for two days).. just stay away if you respect yourself as a human being! BY FAR, THE MOST horrifying experience with a so called "hotel" which this NOT, it is barely a third world country's motel!!.. DISGUSTING< STAY AWAYYYYY!

This Ramada is located aprox. 10 miles from Fort Lauterdale International Airport.
And aprox. 10 miles from Sawgrass mills.

Initially, I was bit afraid to book this place because of the previous comments
but finally booked this hotel through Expedia unpublished rates...

Of course - a hotel at the beach would have been my preference.
But 200+$ per night; plus parking, plus.... - no way....

How was my experience at Ramada?

Check-in was quick; the staff friendly.
Parking: free of charge
Room: size OK; a bit worn out; cleanliness OK.
With real hangers that you could remove!
And with a safety box in the room.


The entire hotel is a bit "worn" and could do with some investment as many other 3* hotels.
Not new - but OK for that money.
Offering also free wifi and a free continental breakfast buffet.

Besides a pool, whirlpool and kind of "beach bar", it offers a small (smelling) gym and outdoor tennis courts.
During the afternoon/evening, lots of people met at the pool area - a lively atmosphere!

In close walking distance you find a publix supermarket and several options for dining.

It´s okay to stay here for a night or two.

Negative: at check-out, they charged a "Resort-fee" which I found ridiculous...
What for???

This was the strangest motel when how after you make your reservations and confirm it they add on a resort fee and other charges to your bill and then they give you a coupon to their lousy continental breakfast or you can up grade to a hot breakfast buffet for an additional charge which wasn't much better. The bed spread on our bed had numerous cigarette burns on it which we were suppose to be in a Non Smoking room. Stay away from this motel.

This hotel was NOT as I had expected. Besides raising the price of my room,increasing the "discount" for AARP, they falsely advertise Free Continental Breakfast, charging if you want anything more than toast. The "restaurant" is a buffet open only for a couple of hours at meal time, I reserved a King room for 2 nights, was given a double bed & argued to get what I reserved, in a room that had black mold in the bath, cracked and peeling paint in all rooms, and the toilet paper dispenser was falling out of the wall. The police have permanent parking spots. I would not recommend this hotel.

If you want a nice clean comfortable hotel with at least one amenity like Internet DO NOT STAY HERE. The bedding was dirty furniture old and dirty and the bathroom had mold and mildew. Room didn't even have towels. I called front desk because I thought I was going crazy after not seeing any towels was told I have to come get them. They don't put in room and by the way can I want until laundry is finished and come down later. It was already midnight. There is a $25 per day resort fee that I didn't know about and because I was paying cash at the end of my 2 day stay they put 3 day stay security hold on my credit card. So yes although I was only staying two days and paying cash they put hold of three days on my credit card. I called customer service to complain and was told Ramada sells they name to certain hotels and this so happen to be one. So basically your staying at a Motel 6 with a Ramada sign outside. Stay at your own risk....

Room Tip: Don't stay here...

This is a decent hotel for the price. There is a large grocery market and many other stores in walking distance. The best beaches are about 15 minutes by car. The pool is clean and heated. The continental breakfast is also pretty good.
