Reviewed February 19, 2013

We were very satisfied with our overnight stay enroute to a cruise. We have stayed in many Best Western hotels and this was the best breakfast yet. Friendly, helpful staff and really nice driver recommended by hotel. We would stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the city side but would choose the view/ocean side next time.

Nothing but good to say about this hotel. Stayed the beginning of February for 2 days after a cruise and were extremely happy with the service and location of the hotel. Sirena at the front desk was the most efficient front desk attendant we have ever experienced. She was quick at processing all check in's & check outs and was more than accommodating when we requested an early check in. Had us in our room by noon!! All staff were pleasant, happy and eager to please. Pool area was great with lots of chairs on upper and lower decks. Breakfast was fantastic, with great variety of choices. Hallways and Rooms are a little outdated and could use some updating (new rugs and paint) but was still kept very clean. Furniture and beds in rooms were new and beds were very comfortable. Were a little concerned with being on main road and the noise of the traffic but were never woke up by it. Very short walk to all amenities..beach and restaurants. Shuttle service to airport was perfect but has a fee ($20) which we were not told about but had no issues paying it as they were there and waiting for when requested. Wish we had booked more time to stay here. Will definitely return next time in Fort Lauderdale.

We spent two nights here in April and enjoyed our stay very much. The people at the hotel made this stay an absolute pleasure with their helpfulness and pleasantness. Firstly, we had gotten our dates wrong and even though the hotel was full, they managed to let us stay an extra night without changing rooms! When we got to our cruise ship, my wife realised that she had left her jewellery in the hotel safe. A quick phone call and shen we got back - there was her jewellery in the housekeeping manager's safe

The location is great, the hotel is very nice and the staff are outstanding!

My husband and I were looking for a quick affordable getaway before our baby comes in July. The trip was super affordable with Expedia and they include a buffet breakfast each morning. The bartenders Sarah, Matt, and Rose (I think that was her name -sorry! ) we're awesome, friendly and definitely accommodating! The check in and check out was a breeze! The hotel is close to everything and is simple and laid back. We met so many friendly people! I love ft Lauderdale and now hubby does too!

My husband and I chose to stay in Fort Lauderdale the night before our cruise. The room was clean. Service was awesome. The breakfast was tasty. We were right by the water. For the price this was an excellent find.
