“Nice rooms & Nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here the night before our cruise... Nice clean rooms and friendly service... Didn't like that it was a bit overpriced and the shuttle to the cruise port was 8 bucks a person, for the money your paying for the room it should be offered free or not at all... A 4 minute cab ride to the port cost my wife and I 7 bucks tip in.. The location was nice because of all the stores within walking distance...

I stayed two nights waiting to start our cruise but would have been happy to stay longer. The hotel rooms were very comfortable, the public areas inviting, and the restaurant very good. The lobby had several seating areas - from the fireplace to the covered patio and palm tree-shaded pool area. There was free coffee in the morning and water available all day. I did use the fitness area which was well-equipped and clean. We had several meals in the restaurant -- the staff was accomodating and the food was well-prepared. Definitely one of my best hotel experiences.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool - very serene.

Rooms are spacious and clean. The king size bed is very comfortable and the room contains all of the amenities you would expect (microwave, fridge etc).
Buffet breakfast with scrambled eggs, biscuits, bagels etc is available in the dining area. There is also a small "fitness room" on the 1st floor.
No bar or restaurant, but there is a strip mall across the street with several places to eat, a liquor store, a bar, a grocery store and a Big Lots for last minute supplies.
I don't think that I would stay here for vacation, but it is good for a layover or a couple of days for business

Stayed here on arrival and before departing Ft. Lauderdale with my family in tow. As far as an HIE goes, this was very new looking and clean. Breakfast was well stocked, beds were very comfortable and the flat screen HD TV was a nice bonus.

Only complaint is the airport shuttle is shared with other hotels in the area and only comes once an hour. Had to wait over 45 minutes at the airport late at night with pregnant wife and tired kids (I had been told it would only be a 20-minute wait). Next time I would have just paid for a taxi.

Both nights I was recognized as a Priority Club member but only got a gift bag on the first stay.

Very standard experience, ok service, clean rooms, nice little pool and ok breakfast. Ample parking. Good cookies and coffee. Nasty smell in hallways and elevators, smelled like they were covering up something. Apart from that, as expected, nothing more, nothing less.

I just don't understand why so many hotels have to stink up their rooms with disgusting air fresheners. Who wants to sleep in a cheap perfume factory? Other than this fact, (and the fact we couldn't access Lodgenet with our remote) the room was fine. Pretty good free breakfast. The decaf was impressive. No sludge taste. If you don't mind breathing in the chemical stench, you should be perfectly happy here.

I can see that the hotel has a lot of good reviews once people get there, but I feel very let down by their complete lack of help and service when boooking. On 23rd September I booked two nights for next February. I duly received a confirmation e-mail ... everything great so far. I then decided to extend thje visit by arriving a day earlier. The HI web site clearly stated that you can amend your booking on-line. Indeed it also had a field to change the check-in details. Unfortunately this didn't work as it came up with anb error message saying it needs a credit card number, but gave no place to enter such. Anyway this didn't worry me, I culd possibly understand this. So I e-mailed setting out the problem, asking them to amend the booking and send me a revised confirmation. They received this on 1st October.

By 5th October i had heard nothing so I sent an e-mail reminder. It is now 13th October and the hotel still haven't responded in any way. I consider this to be completely unprofessional and very different from the frequent comments about "helpfull and friendly staff"

I have now got round the problem by separately booking the additional day. Obviously I have fudged the "When did you travel" entry as it doesn't take account of comments about pre-visit service
