“Excellent hotel for pre-cruise”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

We've been to Ft. Lauderdale for many cruises in the past, but it's our first time at this property. It is conveniently located with many restaurants and shops within walking distance. The service at the hotel was above and beyond my expectation. They offered shuttle service to a local restaurant close by, dropped us off, and came back to pick us after we got done with dinner. Simply superb, especially for our group of 10 people. Breakfast was excellent with a variety of options. Few minor complaints. I didn't care for the sales pitch with Rendezvous in the car ride from airport to the hotel and after we checked in. The walls between the rooms are thin. We had a room next to a group of people who slammed their doors and talking very loudly at 3-4 in the morning. It would be nice to have more than one computer available to use especially with the amount of people they have at the hotel. Oh, one of the computer users I waited for happen to be an employee, not a hotel guest. Hence, 4 star ratings instead of 5. However, it doesn't diminish our return should we happen to come back to the area again.

Greetings and thank you for taking a moment to write a nice review about my hotel on Trip Advisor. We love hearing from our wonderful guests! I am thrilled that you thought our service went "Above and Beyond" your expectations! That is music to a GM's ears! It appears you also enjoyed the free shuttle service and had a good breakfast. I do apologize that your neighbors were noisy and that you had to wait on an employee to get off the lobby computer ( I will take care of this immediately and you can bet that will NEVER happen again!)
Overall, it sounds like you had a great stay and I want to welcome you back to my hotel on your next trip to SUNNY FLORIDA!
Sincerely,

Stayed here for a cruise out of Port Everglades, both before the cruise and also the day after the cruise.
The hotel's shuttle service was great, both to/from the airport and also
services the cruise ship and nearby (within a mile) area locations and is no extra charge.
We also took the shuttle to a nearby restaurant (Rendezvous) which was good.
The room was quiet and clean. The kids had fun in the pool.
Breakfast was good. Several families in our group stayed here and all enjoyed it.
Would defintely stay here again for our next cruise.

We spent the night at this property before going on a Carnival Cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. We arrived in the evening before the cruise, checked in and had a very good night in the hotel. The next morning, the breakfast was as expected in a Hampton Inn. This hotel also provides a shuttle service to the Ft. Lauderdale cruise port and will let you park your car in the hotel parking lot for the duration of your cruise.
The hotel is clean and neat with comfortable rooms and beds. The morning breakfast is very good. The shuttle service to and from the port is great.
The morning we were to leave on our Cruise, Carnival was running about two hours late. The hotel staff called around, got all of the information and made sure were were comfortable at the hotel while waiting for time to go to the port. We had a great time drining a little coffee and talking with other guests who were also going on the cruise. We it came time go to the port, the hotel staff loaded us all into three different busses and off we went. The hotel is a very short drive from the port.
I was very impressed with the courtersy and efficiency of this property. If you are going "cruising" out of Ft. Lauderdale, and want to arrive one day early, this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: The hotel is a couple of blocks from the main road, so there is no noise problem to be concerned wit...

If you're going to stay in Ft. Lauderdale, this Hampton Inn is the only one you should consider.
It is very clean and comfortable but the thing that has won my husband and I over is the service they give you. They went above and beyond. When my scooter wouldn't work at Detroit, David gave us a phone number to call and we got one delivered right to our room on the ship. He also took us to a restaurant for dinner and picked us up after.
The room attendant helped us down to the lobby with our luggage. Their free hot and cold breakfast was great and the lady looking after it was friendly and helpful. Other hotels need to see what service is all about!
HATS OFF TO DAVID AND STAFF! From your Canadian friends

After using trip advisor to locate a motel to stay in the night before our cruise, we decided upon the Hampton Inn Airport/Cruise port. Great decision! We arrived the night of the Super Bowl, and quickly settled in to go shopping for last-minute items in the strip center across the street. This neighborhood has BMW's and Audi's all around, so you can feel pretty safe (as one can get, nowadays). Brought Italian (highly recommend) back to our spacious room with 2 other couples to watch the game. Had plenty of room in a nice clean motel. The breakfast buffet was great, and the girl working there obviously enjoys helping us travelers. Took the shuttle (great drivers), and left our car on the property - saving us over $100 in parking fees. Upon returning, the shuttle picked us up quickly, and the car was fine. We were even asked in for some breakfast before we hit the road! I would highly recommend this motel to travelers as a fantastic bargain, and to the local visitor as an alternative to the pricier motels on the beach. The staff was great, service wonderful, and we will return.

We stayed here before and after our recent cruise and could not have been happier with the excellent service that we received. Free shuttle to and from the airport and to and from the cruiseport is practically unheard of, and that alone saved us a lot of $$. In addition, all of the shuttle drivers were super nice and friendly, and our 4 year old LOVED the flamingos on the shuttle (we thought they were pretty cute, too!) Our first night, the front desk recommended a restaurant, and the shuttle took us there and back with no problem. On the morning of our cruise, one passenger returning from a cruise ship infected with Norwalk virus rode the shuttle back to the hotel just before we were to get on it. Being 5 mos. pregnant and traveling with a child, I was reluctant to get on the shuttle after this person who may have been infected (she was not sick yet), and the nice hotel staff offered to switch the shuttles for us! I was so grateful!

Upon our return, the shuttle showed up at the cruiseport in half the time promised, and we were back at the hotel in no time to enjoy our final day in Ft. Lauderdale. We wanted to go to the Everglades, and the front desk recommended renting a car for the day instead of taking cabs everywhere. He set up the rental for us, and in less than an hour, we were on our way out to explore the area in our own car. The rental car saved us a ton of money in cab fare, and we got to see more things than we would have. We would not have thought of that on our own, so it was a great suggestion.

Hotel is also a great convenient location for picking up some last-minute pre-cruise items at Big Lots or Winn Dixie. Breakfast was good, too, with a nice selection. We all enjoyed our waffles! Rooms are very clean, and beds are comfy. I used the business center to print our boarding passes (no charge!) and saved a little time at the airport. Free WiFi is nice too!

You can tell that this hotel staff goes above and beyond in service. We stayed in a much more expensive hotel last summer when we cruised out of FLL, and the service was not as good, and we had to pay extra for everything (breakfast, shuttles, cabs, etc...) This is our go-to place from now on!

My wife and I stayed here one night before a cruise. The hotel is showing some age but overall it is clean and very comfortable. As with every Hampton we have stayed at service was great and the breakfast was wonderful. The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful.

One nice touch is that the hotel shuttle will take you to a local restaurant and pick you up when you are finishe dining. We went to the Rendezvous which was very nice. The shuttle was there within ten minutes after the restaurant called.

The shuttle service to the pier was excellent. We were scheduled to leave at Noon and left at 12:10.

Overall we would highly recommend this hotel pre-cruise.
