Reviewed July 27, 2012

This was our third visit to Ocean Sky. Nice 7th floor room with a beautiful view. Everything was clean and the hotel staff polite and very helpful. We will definitely return here for future stays. Thank You Ocean Sky for making our vacation a wonderful memory.

For your information. When we arrived at the Fort Lauderdale Airport we took a Yellow Cab taxi to our hotel. The cost was $40.50. We used another taxi service to return to the airport upon our departure. The cost was $28.90. The taxi driver told us that Yellow Cab took us the long way and therefore the additional cost. In my opinion Yellow Cab ripped us off. Our return driver also told us the next time we go to Fort Lauderdale to tell the driver we are local and to take the Federal Highway. You may want to do this if you are leaving the airport and going to the Galt Mile area which is to the east and north of the airport. This could save you some money.

Room Tip: Would recommend a room on the upper levels. The view is much better. We always stay on the south sid...

Hello again
Following our stay in marco island, we went to ft lauderdale
Selected this hotel as it was located on the beach
It is an average hotel, the room has good size for a king bed, a table, wardrobe, safebox, you are provided with a refrigerator to buy your stuff and coffee pack
It is not a fancy hotel, it is an old fashion property which would be benefited if they woulf freshen up the decoration

The shower is not powerful, you need to double the time to wash your hair properly

The beach area is nice, you need to pay 14 a day for umbrellas but you have free chairs by the pool and it is a 50 metres walk to the sea

There are no restaurants in the area, you need to walk 1 mile to lauderdale by tbe sea to have dinner or with the car go to las olas boulevard
All rooms have bakcony overlookong the sea where you can have breakfast
It is a good option x 80 usd a day

Thank you so much for expressing our tremendous value on the beach. Please note concerning the shower that we are using energy saving showerheads to do our part in "going green". We hope to see you again.

We have been staying at Ocean Sky Hotel for years. Always a wonderful stay. This year the hotel underwent upgrades. It was nice before but now even better!! Staff is very accomodating and friendly. It certainly feels like coming home!! Would recommend to everyone.

Went to this hotel with 3 friends.
The location is good, just a couple miles from Las Olas and about a mile from Lauderdale-by-the Sea. Check is was quick and easy. The hotel is on the beach with a decent pool. We did not try any of the restaurants at the hotel.
The rooms are very dated, 1980s esque. The bathroom is tiny with no ventilation. We liked the refrigerator in the room but that was about it. It is a good value for the price but expect no frills. Parking is $12.00/day. Much cheaper than other hotels on the strip.

Great to have pool and ocean at you feet. Lobby beautiful, rooms average. For the price we paid 77 night plus parking, it was the best deal. Staying there again. Pool was awesome and location is great if u wanna go north south or west. Good for family's and couples too.

Stayed this past weekend there because my gf booked and had never been there and since she knows I love Miami. Wanted to surprise me with a trip. However
When I saw pics on website it looked ok def not 4 or 5 star but when we got there the lobby looked nice and clean. Which I thought was not bad, but as soon as we got to the elevator to our room, OMG was I disappointed. Old old old, super outdated, the bathroom were tiny could barley fit, old fixtures, the tub leaked. The tv remote didn't work, we called the day we got there (Fri )and asked for another remote didnt get one till Sunday.
The chairs at the beach they rent, as well as the umbrellas. Wtf????? Half were empty and we sat there, to later find out we had to pay or get off of them 5 for each chair and 10 for the umbrella. The cabanas for 30. The towels were like sandpaper in the room and at the pool. Never in my life would I stay there.
At the end I found out I have a ovet charge of 240 for who knows what I've called and nobody knows why but they can't refund it. I just called my credit card to dispute it.

The stay was fine, the room was clean and room service is perfect. The only problem there is parking, we had to pay for a parking spot on a daily basis but again, it is the same for every hotel, restaurant in FLL, you have to pay whenever and wherever you have to park your car!
