“Pre-cruise Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

Stayed in mid-March 1 night before a cruise. Called the hotel to ask about the airport shuttle as well as a shuttle to the cruiseport the next day.

Very friendly staff; clean room with good amenities.

Warning about the shuttles to the cruiseportl: available only 24 hours before the day of your cruise; we waited until we arrived the night before, around 9pm and found that they only had openings for shuttles at 9:30 and 10:30am. Should have called before we arrived to secure a reservation on a later shuttle.

Lobby was crowded in the am since checkout was at 11am and lots of folks were waiting for 11:30 and later shuttles to cruiseport with all their luggage.

Stayed here one night. Rode the shuttle from the airport and used the shuttle the next day to go back to the airport to get a rental car. Great service.

Our room was nice and it was clean. Comfortable bed and room was quiet. Mario informed us about the nice breakfast in the morning it was a pleasure speaking to Mario.

Stayed one night prior to cruise. Have found Best Western Hotels to be clean and generally not shop worn and this was true of this motel. located in an area of strip malls on Florida #84. Free pickup at airport but not to cruiseport and with a one night stay of $150.00 plus, ought to be included. Breakfast included and just adequate, juice,coffee,tea, toast, bagels, scrambled eggs and sausages ( microwaved cooked) standard fare for Interstate highway motels. Hotels (motels) in Ft lauderdale at this time of year winter are really overpriced and I would guess half of the above price the rest of year. Reading some other negative revues in Ft Lauderdale for pre and post cruise stays leads me to say it probably as good or better as any with respect to cleanliness......transport to cruiseport was $8.00.

You get a lot for your money. This hotel is reasonably priced, yet nice room and good complimentary breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here prior to taking a cruise. Our plane got in after midndight but a phone call brought quick pick up. The rooms were adequate for this sort of hotel, clean and quiet. We slept too late for the continental breakfast and there is no restaurant on the property. However, a 4 or 5 block walk brought us to several choices. Don't bother taking the arranged shuttle to the cruise terminal as it leaves at only 1 time; it turned out a cab ride was cheaper when we chose to take one. They had a secure holding place for luggage while we went to eat. Since we got in so late and our ship was not availalble until late afternoon they let us stay an hour after the listed check out time at no charge.We traveled in February 2012.

We stayed at this hotel before and after a cruise and both times it worked out great. We used the hotels shuttle to and from the airport and it was on time both times with very friendly drivers. The night clerk (Rodney) was a great help (3-18), all of the staff did their best even though it was very busy. The only comment I have is the bathroom fan needs to be on a seperate switch.....too noisy.

We found this Best Western to be clean, quiet and have very helpful staff. We returned from a 21 day cruise in the early morning. There did not appear to be a means of getting in touch with their "Free shuttle" from the cruise docks so we grabbed a taxi for $7 + tip for a 15 minute drive. On arrival they were not able to allocate a room as it was too early, about 10.00 am, but they took our luggage into a secure holding room until we could book in at about 2.00pm which was about an hour earlier than the say in their brochure. We received a call from the manager soon after we were in the room to check that everything was to our satisfaction. We stayed on the second floor which had elevator access. The room was large and very clean, it did not smell of smoke and all the linens were fresh and "fluffy". There is a local plaza right next door with many stores and a sports bar serving great food. A "Dunkin Donuts" is at the far end of the plaza and also a grocery store and a Wendys. Walgreens is a fair walk away but with many hours before being able to get into the hotel was a really pleasant 40 minute walk away. We passed a spectacular mangrove tree right on the edge of the road which had many hanging roots and provided great shade in the heat of the day. The free shuttle to the airport the next morning was very efficient and left on the hour all through the day and night. We wer very happy with our stay and would not hesitate to go back.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the carpark but we did not experience any noise because of it.
