“NO!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

My wife booked this motel based upon "value". There were three couples staying here in preparation for going on a "once in a life time" cruise. The rooms were hot, the AC didn't cool, we had to clean off the AC filters of about 1/2 inch of dirt, the carpet was dirty, the bathtub and showers were worse than the ones i used in the bush of Africa last month, the sheets had yellow stains, need I say more? The owner assured my wife they had been remodeling the place. Hmmm! I guess they had not started that process yet! They sure need to get started though. The only UP SIDE was the staff. He was very nice! We arrived in Ft Lauderdale at 11:00 PM and finally found a great hotel a block away for $50 more. IT was well worth the money. I lost my payment for two rooms for that night but we GLADLY spent more money for a room we could actually feel comfortable about staying in.

Room Tip: Go to the Crown Plaza instead of this place

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.

I travel a lot and never had run across this hotel on Hotels.com before. Gave it a shot and it was just really, really nice. Clean room, great price, the staff are over-the-top in friendliness and service.

This is a great place to stay for one night or if you need to be near the airport. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. When you check in, they give you a free drink including beer. There is free breakfast and free internet service.
The rooms are a little small and the pull out couch in our room was broken.
Overall, this is a great place for the price you pay but it's not a place to vacation in.

If you want 5-star Hilton, stay away! If you want an old-fashioned, down-home American motel, with clean rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, right there in downtown Fort Lauderdale, close to the airport and Port Everglades, you won't find better value than this.

If you want glitz and glam and flunkies, you won't find it here. If you want nice people and great value, this is the place for you!

Just so you know, in the last 12 months I've had about 20 hotel stays, in the UK, USA, Malaysia, Thailand, from the poshest, to the cheapest. This was the friendliest!

Inexpensive motel, with that being said its not the best quality but it is okay. Staff is very friendly, cable tv, microwave, small fridge, coffee maker. Let us check in at 11am. Location isn't great because too far to walk to main attractions (mall, restaurants, etc).

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.
