Ramada Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port
Ranked #65 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed January 24, 2014

The best recommendation for this motel is that they offer free shuttle service from the airport and to Port Everglades. Also, if you miss the shuttle from the port, a taxi will cost about $13.00. The motel is old but the rooms are large and clean. The breakfast is just adequate but you can upgrade to eggs and bacon for $5.00.

We stayed one night and got what we paid for. Breakfast was adequate and filling. Didn't want to pay the extra $5 for the hot food section as we were heading to the cruise ship and would over indulge there anyway. Shuttle was great (both the airport pickup and cruise port drop off were free). BE SURE THE DRIVER LOCKS THE TRAILER. The bags are placed in the trailer (and towed behind) as the bus fills up quickly. There was a very disappointed traveler that arrived at the hotel with the rest of us to find his bags had either fallen out of the trailer or someone had opened and stolen them from the trailer during a traffic jamb. A very bad start to his vacation.

Room Tip: All rooms are motel style. Choose a room facing inside towards the pool if you are not driving.

New owners have LOTS of WORK to do. Doors without seals leaving gaps, HUGE OLD BIG TV's that don't always work (It took over 2 hours for it to work after 4 people and an exchange of sets. and then rather then the buzzing over the volume, we had half red and half green. A free continental breakfast is offered but it is $5 and really not worth it. coffee in the room and a power bar was better.
Rugs were dirty, beds creaky. The hotel maintenance man was the best thing in the hotel. They offer service to the port at only 2 times, and on the return trip the van/bus was falling apart and there was a brown stinky banana peel behind the driver. EUUU! Look harder for a hotel. we booked on EXPEDIA and was told there was no fee but the hotel charged us $5 on their end. Parking went from free to 6 then 10 a night. Watch out travelers, it is the little things that make the overnight rate look great. Our $89 rate went to over $159 for 5 days, one in the hotel the rest for parking.

Room Tip: Before you check in, inspect the rooms for hairs on the sheets, humming tv's and over all cleanl...

This hotel was well above average in all areas. Free airport shuttle was quick and painless. Front desk staff was on the ball as well. The lovely and talented Guri at the Tiki bar was great as well, not only opening the hotel store/gift shop after hours, but made a nice double vodka and pineapple juice (she wasn't skimpy on the vodka) and helped me out quite a bit with some pointers on vacationing in Australia (she is a transplanted Aussie), where my son and I will be visiting in 2014.

We had a sixteen hour layover in Fort Lauderdal after four days in Nassau, and this hotel was perfect for what we needed, from the price was price to the staff efficiency and service. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here one night prior to cruise. While you "get what you pay for", I was a little disappointed in the hotel - nothing like the pictures. Rooms were very old, musty, carpet dirty and smelly. Bed and bathroom were clean. Free shuttle service to/from airport a plus. Absolutely nothing nearby. Hotel, rooms, and restaurant needs an overall updating and a good cleaning. Not very comfortable. If I had to do it over, I would have paid a little more and been comfortable.

I read very mixed reviews of the hotel and many other in this pricerange, but happily decided on the Ramada Inn.
Price trough expedia was great $85, free shuttle came fast, room was ready, friendly staff.
Location good if you have a car, all major highways very closeby.

We have been coming to the Ramada Airport Cruise Port for the last 10 years on average 3 times per year. At first it was because of the convenience of their excellent and well organized shuttle airport pick up and shuttle to the cruise ships. Now we also come because of the wonderful service we get and the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms. This is an older hotel but it is quite charming. The white sheets, fluffy fresh pillows, dreamy white duvets make you want to get into bed and the quality and comfort of the beds are exquisite! Everything is clean and fresh smelling. The restaurant serves up an amazing selection of entrees, very sumptuous and delicious and reasonably priced. My husband and I are cruise agents from Ontario, and we always recommend this hotel to our clients. We have had groups of 8 to 130 and never once have we received a complaint! Our clients also come back here again and again! I highly recommend the Ramada Airport Cruise Port hotel, it is a real gem!
