“Excellent...Everything”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

My fiance and I just got back from an extended vacation. The management was excellent and so was the staff. The rooms are very clean and I believe recently remodeled. The whole hotel looks remodeled and is very nice. The management was very caring, we are from out of state and are not very familiar with the area. We were almost late trying to catch the Jungle Queen and he offered us a ride which was very nice of him. He also helped park our car and direct us in. The parking may be tight but they cant do anything about that and definitely help make it easy on the people that have trouble with it. The cleaning ladies are super nice and always listen to you and seem to be self motivated. This hotel was very very very affordable and I would have paid triple to stay here. Its right on the beach sitting next to "five star" hotels. It's just as nice as far as I'm concerned.We stayed at this place for ten days and did not have one single issue whatsoever. That says a lot! It's all you need and a price you cant beat. The staff being awesome is just a plus!!! Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

I was blown away by the room, location, and staff!!! We were walking distance to everything, we had an ocean view room that was more like a contemporary apt, I highly recommend this gem of a hotel, and it also supports local mom and pop businesses. Looking forward to my next trip :))

Have just stayed here (2 adults, 1 child), we booked the ocean view room. Unbelievable setting and at a great price. The hotel is sandwiched In-between the The Westin and The Hilton and is about 5 times cheaper, same view, same size bed!

This is a really good hotel for those travelling on a budget or those wanting to spend their money on things other than expensive hotels.

Clean and modern rooms, friendly staff, parking and wifi at no extra cost.

Great hotel at a great price.

Recommend the restaurant next door and also recommend booking the ocean view room.

After reading reviews on Tripadvisor, I went ahead and booked 2 nights at this budget friendly motel. Could not have been happier with this choice. Yes, this is an older motel, but the rooms have been mostly redone and most importantly were clean! I had booked a double King room with kitchenette. It was huge and great for a family or friends who do not mind sharing a room and bathroom. There is a rooftop deck being worked on ( do not know when this will be ready)and this will add some amazing outdoor hanging out space. Located right across the street from the beach, I was up early to see the sunrise. Breathtaking.My husband and I were in heaven, enjoying the beautiful sand and ocean just seconds after leaving our room. (Please note you do need to cross a busy street where there are pedestrian crossings, but be aware that most drivers do not stop as they are supposed to by law. BE CAREFUL! Fabulous restaurant right next door and shops and other restaurants within walking distance. Las Olas Blvd., a mere 5 minute walk. The owner and his staff were extremely nice and helpful, answering any and all questions. We were going on a cruise and the taxi ride was approximately 15 minutes to port. Parking was FREE! All in all, I would stay there again in a minute. For all you budget travelers, such as myself, it's a great find.

First, let's set things right: If you are a Hilton, Marriott or other major chain frequent sleeper and you require the luxuries those hotels provide, then you probably won't be happy at The Snooze.
But, if you're willing to pay less and give up some of the luxuries, then you'll love it at The Snooze!
Rob and Joe are really great and keep the place moving along. It's a low key environment where beach chairs and towels are provided on an honor system - take what you want/need and return it at the end of the day.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. Most rooms have the bed, dresser, TV, small cubby closet, mini refrig/freezer and then the bathroom. Not a lot of counter space to spread your things out.
The roof top patio wasn't done when we were there (early May 2014), but the deck is always good. The deck is "first come / first served" so be sure to secure your spot when you can.
The location is good and the beach is close.
The owners give it a personal touch and make you feel right at home and at ease.
Great place!

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view. If you can't get that recommend getting room away from the street just to p...

We can absolutely recommend the snooze Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. It was such a nice place, not luxurious, but very charming. The Hotel staff was so nice, helpful and made us feel very welcome. They offered beach chairs and towels for free and gave us a lot of tips. The Hotel is very good located, everything reachable by foot (restaurants, bar, Shopping). Wifi was super fast too and worked at the beach too. The rooms are very nicely and in coastal/ocean style/colores decorated. Next time we visite Fort Lauderdale, then we come definitively back to snooze :-)

LOCATION directly on the ocean and right at the start of a strip of restaurants, clubs, and shops. Wonderful proprietor, super-friendly staff, beautiful clean room decorated in ocean colors. Fantastic value (we paid $110 a night in May) that included free umbrella and beach chairs and towels whenever we were going down to the water. Loved it here!

Snooze is a modern take on the essentials needed for your home away from home.

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.
