“ok for the money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2007

The room was nice and clean. I was forced to leave a $300.00 cash deposit on the room upon check-in. I reviewed my reservation documents, this was not stated anywhere. The pool was actually across the street. The toilet was very low to the floor; and the hot water come out yellow.

Stayed October 2007

We are a family operated Inn for the past 38 years providing excellent customer service.
We do our best to resolve any complaint as soon as possible.
All customers must have a valid credit card at check in and photo ID. This request in noted in all of our reservation documents, online booking engine. When a customer does not produce a credit card then we require a $300.00 deposit for any upaid balances due upon check out.
All our beds are hotel standard size beds.
We just replaced all our beds with premium high quality beds with heavy duty frames.
Our water supply in South Florida has a lot of chlorine in the water which gives it a yellow color.

We were not happy with the location, our greeting, our bed size, or the ammenities. The hotel info on the web said 2 minutes from the beach, it was not, it was several blocks away which you had to drive to and pay for parking. Our greeting was a long speech about being a non smoking facitilty and the fine if you did, which non of this was given in any information before arrival, and not on the web site, the bed was too small for anyone over 5'6'' and the noisiest squeekiest bed imaginable, horrible to sleep in, there was a coffee maker and liners and cups but no coffee, when we requested coffee being left in the room, we were told to come to the office when they were open and borrow some, unbelievable!! we never had our bed made once, and you could only get clean sheets once a week, if you wanted clean towels you had to throw your towels on the shower floor, I have never heard of such a nasty habit. We would never recommend this place to anyone.

We are indeed located within a 2 to 3 minute CAR ride from the municipal beach and parking lot at Oakland Park Blvd and A1A. The city of Ft Lauderdale has just installed parking meters at all parking locations on the beach.
We just recently replaced all of our beds with new premium mattress and heavy duty box springs and bed frames. We provide coffee makers in all rooms and do not state that we provide coffee on any of our literature. We offer daily maid service and have won the Superior Small Lodging Association "White Glove" award 4 years in a row, 2004-2007.
That speaks volumes for our detail eye to cleanliness. We been in a very bad drought here in Fort Lauderdale the past 2 years now and have a sign asking to leave bath towels in the bath tubs or shower floors when you want them changed. We have never received any complaints from this but in fact praise from customers who appreciate the efforts we have made in terms of our environment.

My stay was terrible. The hotels location was bad. The hotel was not near a beach nore was it near any major bars or clubs. The hotel was to far from everything..
The hotel room I stayed in was less than adequate. The hotel lighting made it hard to sleep at night. This could be fixed if the hotel placed curtains ion the windows instead of Venusians blinds. The hotels lights made it very hard to sleep.
The only positive about the room was that it was clean and the owners were nice people.
I didn’t enjoy my stay……

We provide "Welcome Guide" phamhlets to all our our guests at check in. In this welcome guide is a survey where we want to hear feedback from all of our guests. We have recieved a 98% favorable rating from these surveys having hundreds of satisfied guests.
We have literally hundreds of these surveys stating that we have one of the best locations in Fort Lauderdale. We weclome anyone to ask to see the results of our surveys on property at any time. We are in walking distance to waterfront cafes such as Shooters, Coral Ridge Shopping Mall, fine dining and more. The city also offers a Trolley Shuttle that can whisk you to the beach daily.
We are in walking distance to Christophers night club which is one of the best high quality clubs in town. We do not cater to young crowds who want to throw parties at our hotel
This was the first and only complaint on the lighting at our Inn. We have very good window treatments all "levelor brand" blinds that are indeed blackouts.

Where do I begin. If cleanliness is next to Godliness, this Inn is Paradise. The whole atmosphere in and out was perfect. I mean really tropical with beautiful, lush tropical gardens to see even from inside your room.
We have stayed in many Inns and hotels such as Orlando, Ottawa, Toronto, Niagra Falls, Detroit, Cleveland and this Inn was the best, hands down.
