Hard for me to rate this hotel - its clean, roomy & a great price with friendly, helpful staff. However, it was further from the airport than we expected, and the bed was hard & the a/c very noisy. We finally had to turn it off. Fortunately, the room had been super cooled. The kitchenette was adequate for coffee & a simple breakfast. There is a Winn Dixie & a CVS across the street. We booked after reading the reviews here, but would likely stay elsewhere next time.

Room Tip: No elevator. Request ground floor if this is an issue for you.

We booked this motel for an overnight stay prior to an early flight from Fort Lauderdale Airport. It is an older style motel, with 2 floors and relatively narrow outside staircases, and no elevator. The room was on the 1st floor. Check in was more functional than friendly. There were adequate car parking spaces. The room with 2 double beds was not large but adequate and clean except for the window curtains which were dusty. WiFi was available in the room. A small fridge was provided. The bathroom was a little dated and dark. The door and lock did were not particularly robust and might be a security concern. The motel is situated near some restaurants of various types but nothing particularly exciting. The beach is located nearby but on the opposite side of a series of large blocks of private apartment buildings blocking direct access. As mentioned in other reviews it is possible to find a way through a hotel to the beach We got to the beach but as it was dark and there were a number of people scavenging bins and apparently sleeping rough we did not feel particularly safe and returned quickly. The motel is about 10 miles from Fort Lauderdale Airport, and the motel room cost is relatively low so for us it served its purpose. We probably would not stay in this motel or in this part of Fort Lauderdale in future.

My sister & I were so surprised to find this small motel in such a great location. The staff was fantastic, given all our personal problems before we even arrived. They were very helpful with everything, especially ideas about where to eat. Great place right across the street. It was a treat to walk instead of needing to drive. Clean, comfortable, & reasonable. We will return on our next visit to Ft. Lauderdale.

Room Tip: We preferred an upstairs room, but downstairs looked fine. Much better than the pictures on the sit...

Stayed here while attending a conference. Highly recommend for value and location. Excellent restaurants and a grocery store close by. The staff was very accomodating. I was able to add a day at the beginning and the end with no problem.

This motel was a great deal. ($85)
I thought the room was a great size, clean, and not tacky. I loved having a full kitchen, fully stocked with all the supplies you could need.
The beds were hard for my taste but my husband liked it.

The front desk staff was fantastic, super friendly and helpful.

Patio area was nice even though it faced the parking lot. I did not visit the pool.

The location was ok, not too much to do in the area, there is a bar/grill and a cvs across the street, and a tiki bar next door (weak drinks).

Only flaw-I didn't like that the hair dryer was kept at the front desk.

Overall we would stay here again.

My first time at the Galt Ocean Villas and stayed for an entire week. With our wonderful economy being what it is, I'm glad I took a chance on the Galt Ocean Villas. Staff and service was absolutely terrific, place was really clean and a great location. Walk to the beach, grocery store...don't need a car as your on a bus line if your saving your pennies and need to go somewhere. I have traveled a bunch, yet not on a beer budget and the GOV surprised me in a very positive way as it was a terrific value......frankly as good as places I've paid twice as much before. The place reminds me of old Ft. Lauderdale growing up as a kid in the late 60's.......
Nightlife close by, some great food. Many thanks to Mark, Michael, Danny, Loni and of course Elena and the rest of the staff. Everyone was great.

Room Tip: Staying an entire week, it was nice to have the kitchenette. Corner rooms have more light...mine wa...
