Stayed for just one night, before flying out the next day. Found hotel from Hotels.com and although was a bit skeptical decided to try it. The location is fine but the hotel itself is easy to miss, I drove right past it.
Check-in was a snap and the owner was very friendly. Got to the room and was surprised at how small it was but could see that they'd tried to do some updates. The carpet is pretty nasty though so make sure to keep your shoes on. Bathroom is tiny too, but this building was built in the late 30's so the size is understandable.
All in all the motel is fine, but I wouldn't stay for longer than one night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Haven Hotel is located in the heart of one of America's favorite vacation playgrounds; Sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This historical Haven Hotel was built in 1937 as a road side motel on Federal Highway, a two lane road between Port Everglades and the International Airport. This major thoroughfare, known as US-1, consists of eight lanes today and old Federal Highway is a quiet side street. The hotel has also seen some changes since the thirties. Major renovations were completed in the last years, updating the entire building and its interior, adding modern technology, such as free Wireless Internet and digital cable television to the charm of old Fort Lauderdale. If you're vacationing on one of the 3,000-plus cruises leaving Port Everglades annually, no other hotel can provide lodging closer to both airport and cruise terminal, just .5 miles from the Fort Lauderdale International Airport and .3 miles from Port Everglades. A family run hotel where the customer’s needs come first. ... more less
