“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

My husband and I stayed here two nights prior to our cruise and one night post cruise. The location and views are amazing ... and you get all this at a very reasonable price! We didn't book at oceanview room, because we were traveling on a budget this time, but really there isn't a "bad room location". You may not wake up and look out your window to the ocean, but if you walk a few steps you can sit on the balcony overlooking the main strip and the ocean. Free parking, clean, friendly, accomodating, and comfortable. After staying there two nights before the cruise, it was like "going home" when we stayed there post cruise! Joe went above and beyond to allow us to check in early, following our cruise, which made all the difference! We were also allowed to stay parked there the day of our departure until 3pm without any further cost. Overall excellent experience and we can't wait to go back and bring other couples along next time!

I stayed 5 nights total at the Snooze pre and post cruise. I found it to be an awesome property with stunning views of the beach. My room was well appointed, very comfortable and I honestly was able to relax and enjoy before and after my cruise. I will definitely be back!

Best hotel ever. Friendly staff, gorgeous huge room with kitchenette. Right across from the beach. Beach chairs provided. Small size makes for great service. Fun area. Lots to see and do. Highly recommend.

We stayed here twice this month and will return again, I am sure. Three of us stayed in a room with two king beds and a kitchenette. It was very nice. I was glad that there was no carpeting. I always feel that hotel carpeting is dirty, and can affirm that from the dirt on my socks. My socks stayed white here! The staff was very helpful. I had lost a screw from my rollator walker and the owner had the hotel repairman get me a nut that fit! Saved us hunting a hardware store. The furniture in the rooms is brand new and the walls are freshly painted. I knew they had updated, but had no idea it would be so nice!

We will definately return here next winter. So, please do not book a room for next February. We want a room to be available!

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool, but the ocean is right across the street. Restaurants abound in the area...

We stayed 3 nights here and couldn't believe what a value it was. Right across from the beach, very clean rooms and friendly staff. We did lock ourselves out of the room because it is a key lock and the owner had to come to our room at 2am- while not amused (who would be!) he did not complain and promptly came. We were offered beach chairs every time we went to the beach and they even stored our luggage while we went to the beach til our 3pm departing flight. Really can't say enough good things.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Great location, very comfortable room and helpful staff. Complimentary beach chairs and towels were very much appreciated. This gem is located in the center of action, but still a very quiet and comfortable place to stay. We will definitely be back!

I stayed in Snooze for 3 days in jan 2014.
Perfect location, great room, great view, great price! dont look any further, and spend a fortune in charmless huge hotel complex next door, the snooze is defintely the spot !

Room Tip: Not a five star hotel but choose Ocean view room on 3rd floor and you ll feel privileged !

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Snooze is a modern take on the essentials needed for your home away from home. We believe traveling in style should be affordable without any hidden costs - just pay your room rate plus tax and that's it! We offer a clean, comfortable and modern room, plus add free parking, wifi, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. Keep in mind we offer the essentials so...No pool, no 24 hr service, no phones, no spa, no bell boy, no valet and no chocolates on your pillows. Why spend the extra money on extras you don't need? We are the last oceanfront Ft. Lauderdale hotel left with less than 20 rooms. There are plenty of "big box" branded hotels out there and we are proud we are not one of them. Snooze is located directly accross the street from Fort Lauderdale Beach next to the Westin and Ritz Carlton hotels. Direct Ocean View, Kitchenette and Hotel Rooms are available at the property. The airport (7 miles), cruise terminal (5 miles) and convention center (5 miles) are just minutes away. Free Wi-Fi and beach chairs and towels. Free parking as long as it is not an over-sized vehicle. Our check-in age is 25 and older. ... more   less
