“Great Hotel on the ocean”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Great resort on the ocean. This was our 2nd year in a row staying here. We stayed the 1st week of March and had a great time. The beach is wonderful and the staff is friendly. The hotel is on the older side, but like others have said is nicely undated. We stayed in the kitchen suite on the south side both times. Kitchen comes with a few pots and pans and some plates and bowls = huge convenience for small family. Only bad part is parking is $12 a day and people smoking on the balconies.

Room Tip: BurgerFi has great burgers, located just a few blocks away.

This is a nice sized hotel and resort, not too large and not too small, consisting of 9 floors. The hotel itself is right on the beach and situated in the Galt Ocean Mile area of Ft. Lauderdale. The hotel has ample parking out front and a walkout at the rear to the pool, lounge area, beach and direct ocean access. There were ample lounge chairs on the deck area, with sun all day, if you wanted it. The rooms were clean and a decent size, with a small fridge and microwave. We had an eight floor balcony on the south side, that gave you an ocean and city view. There is a Dunkin Donuts, McDonald's, Winn Dixie and several other restaurants close by. Request a south side room on an upper floor for more sunshine and a better view. This was a nice hotel for the cost, with parking an additional $12 daily. The fitness room was adequate. Would I return...yes.

Room Tip: Request a south side room on an upper floor for more sunshine and a better view.

The hotel is beautiful!! We have stayed at another hotel in this area and I have to say fell in love with this one! Will never stay at the other one again. The staff at this hotel is amazing. The hotel, pool area, and the beach were immaculate.
We are planning on returning to the area many times and if we get the notion to stay the night, it will be here if we get a good deal. Definitely looking like we will be staying here for a week in July also.
Can't say enough about this hotel and staff. Thank you! My family loved our night here!

Rooms were average, location was wonderful, pool area was great, beach was very nice. Purchased through Priceline. Standard rooms have full-size bed's, nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. It was certainly a convenient location.

Room Tip: If you purchase through Priceline, Hotwire, etc., make sure you get a King Room, the other option is...

Stayed at the hotel for 6 nights, after the first one asked manager to give us another room - our was really outdated, she did it and it was much better. The hotel was not full at all. The staff was always polite. The food was just OK that's why we had a meal just once there. The location is great - right on the beach, almost across there is DD, huge grocery store, Wings (everything you might need for the beach). I will definitely stay there again!

I bid on a 3.5 ocean front hotel on Hotwire and got this hotel, photos looked stunning but after reading some reviews I was nervous. Check in was a breeze, I called a few weeks prior to arriving to confirm and ask for a higher level room, we got 9 th floor, nice ocean / pool views. The room was clean and the bed was fine. We had a drink / snack at the Tiki bar upon arrival which was expectedly over priced but good. I expected the price factor so I wasn't surprised. We walked to a local restaurant that the concierge recommended, Nicks Italian Restaurant, it was about a 5 min walk and was very good! I used the fitness center which was clean w/ new equipment and we checked out early the next morning. The location of this hotel was a selling point for us, and there is a few shops/ restaurants close by. I feel that this hotel lives up to its 3 star rating.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to maximize ocean views.

This Hotel is one of the best in Fort Lauderdale, directly on the beach, great staff, pool etc. It is easy to get to and parking is only $ 12 per day (Pretty reasonable for a beach property)
We love to stay there when family from Europe visits

Room Tip: We always stay in 829 ( awesome view)))
