Reviewed December 4, 2013

I had read some horrendous reviews of this motel, as well as some great ones. We found a very quaint, almost beach-side motel that had alot of personality! The motel is colorful with a great little pool that was impeccably maintained. The owners and staff were very courteous and stopped to ask us how our stay was going. The motel was located on a busy strip in the heart of the beach in beautiful! Fort Lauderdale. It was very close to other hotels, condos, and shopping. The beach, which was beautiful and clean, was literally one block away, and the motel was surrounded by very pricey condos and hotels. If you stay here, check out the Grand Pelican Resort, which has a great little shop and veranda overlooking the ocean. There is also a fabulous boutique hotel right next to the Grand Pelican with a fabulous ocean-side restaurant. Overall, I would choose to stay somewhere a little more swank next time, but if you are on a budget, you cannot go wrong with the Lafayette - clean and friendly!

Room Tip: pick a pool side room on the first floor! Our room was steps away from the pool.

I stayed at this location when I first relocated to Florida, the hotel apartment I stayed in was mold infested, old, and dirty. I left after conducting a sex offender search and saw the maintenance man picture, when I went to the owner he brushed it off and said he would make sure he was not sent to my room, yet he was working around kids my conscious would not allow me to stay another night. Says a lot about Management and their true priority.

While the bed was comfortable and the sheets clean (albeit threadbare like the comforter), the entire hotel and room provided were in rough condition. If you need a place to stay in a pinch for a night, this place is ok, but I wouldn"t recommend for an extended stay.

As previous reviews have mentioned, this place is sorely in need of an update.

Pros:
Friendly staff

AC was on for me at checkin

Price

Free Wifi

Cons:
The 19 inch standard definition tv had problems connecting to the cablebox, and I didn't get about 80% of the channels. thankfully I had my iPad.

Toilet runs. Constantly.

They use white towels, and several of my towels had all kinds of stains on them. Gross.

Rundown, overall dirty feeling of the,room, even after it was cleaned.

The place is what it is. A cheap alternative to more expensive lodging in a decent area. A bit surprised at all these five star reviews, however.
