“Useless employees”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

After arriving at the airport for an overnight layover I called the hotel for a shuttle. I was put on hold for 20 minutes. I finally hung up and called back. I asked for a shuttle again and was put on hold for another 15 min. Another 20 min later, the shutle finally showed. The room was nice, this surprised me considering that the lobby could use some work. When we arranged for an airport shuttle for the next morning the front desk HIGHLY recommended we take the 3am shuttle for a 5:45am flight. This was a mistake. The airport in FLL doesn't even open until 4:30! Working at an airport area hotel, shouldn't you know this?! Needless to say we waited for almost an hour and a half in an empty airport for any attendants to show. Doubt I'll be staying at a Best Western any time soon. I'll pay more for competence next time.

Hotel was fine for what we rented it for. Picked us up at the airport free of charge, but charged $16 to take us to the cruise ship, then $20 to bring us back two weeks later!?!?!? Same trip, why the extra? Rooms are nice and large and we were able to really spread out! Breakfast was fine, hot food served, typical fare.

Hotel is rather run down. Breakfast was very salty scrambled eggs and very greasy sausage cereal packaged danish juice coffee. Breakfast room very small. Don't bother eating here - go next door to mcdonalds. Room was ok and clean. For almost $200 for one night we expected much better. Add $8 per person for a shuttle to the port. Good grocery store next door.

There were 2 issues with the room.

1) Very bad stink/smell/odor in the rooms, felt like the carpets were not cleaned properly and dried thereafter.
2) The bathroom tub was collecting water and draining was extremely slow. Had to wait 15-20 min before you could take a bath.

Great hotel close to airport and cruiseport. Chose this hotel over other nearby Best Western we have stayed at previously because your airport shuttle ran 24 hrs. a day and our flight was scheduled to get in at midnight (then delayed 2 hrs.)

Found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Very efficient shuttle service, rooms clean and comfortable.

We stay in many Best Westerns each year and found your hotel to be a "find".

Everything was just about perfect, very friendly staff, shuttle bus from the airport was perfect! Shuttle bus to the cruise port, although contracted out, was not reliable. This is not the fault of the hotel.

Otherwise, we had a very enjoyable stay, as always, at Best Western.
