The staff here are very friendly and helpful. For work I travel 80%of the time and I have to say the staff here are among the most friendly people I have ever run across. The hot breakfast and coffee is an excellent way to start your day and the fresh baked cookies welcome you back at the end of the day. The rooms are very clean and the beds are very comfortable. I recomend this hotel to anyone with business or vacation in this area.

Although we are locals, we decided at the last minute to do a little getaway, and let my son enjoy his last weekend before school started. I'm so glad I selected this hotel out of many hotels in the area. The location was great.....near everything!!! Amanda, who worked at the front desk was very charming, and helpful. She made our short stay very comfortable and pleasant. She even called once we settled in to see if we liked our suite. The king suite, needless to say it felt as if we were really on a relaxing vacation. The suite was so huge, with a mini kitchen area, pull-out sleeper sofa, a spacey bathroom. Breakfast was also a plus: nice crispy bacon, scrambled eggs, cinnamon rolls, biscuits and so much more. Overall my husband, son, and I LOVED IT. Surely a terrific place to stay!!!!!!!!!

We were flying our four grandchildren into Fort Lauderdale as a prelude to a cruise vacation. The room we picked (The two Queen Suite) was perfect. Plenty of room for the six of us plus all of our luggage. The location is perfect as it is just 10-15 minutes from both the airport and Port Everglades. The staff is very very friendly and accomodating. Whatever we needed they provided. They also suggested a great place for lunch at the Executive Airport which is just a five minute drive from the hotel. The price for the suite was amazingly reasonable. The pool kept the grandkids occupied. Rooms and hotel were clean and neat. Free breakfast awesome and a perfect start to our journey on the high seas.

I stay at this HI Express almost exclusively when working in south Florida. At first it was due to it's convenient location relative to West Palm (45 mins north) and Miami (35 mins south). After having made this my operations base when traveling there, I have come to truely appreciate this stellar location. Without exception, the rooms and property are always clean, immaculate and safe. You will not find a more proffesional staff anywhere. We have recently set up a corporate account here and made this the first choice for all of our staff working in that area.

Had a nice stay here and a nice welcome goodies with two bottles of water.  Front desk was very pleasant.

They have an outside pool but it was not heated but it was 96 degrees outside!

The room was clean and it looked like they renovated the outside sink area but not the shower area.  I could tell they covered the tub with a liner but I didn't mind it was clean.  There was a microwave and fridge which was nice to cool the water bottles for the next day.  

Breakfast was great, same as any HIE.

We spent the night here on our way down to the Keys and then again a week later on our way back home. Mike, the manager at the front desk, is a real gem! He bent over backwards to take care of us. Each time we asked him a good place to eat, he directed us to a great place! Great personality and lots of fun to talk to! The entire staff at this hotel are pleasant and courteous! It is so clean! The beds are very comfy and we rested very well both stays. We are priority club members so have stayed in lots of Holiday Inns, so we know genuine caring and concern for the guests when we see it. Breakfast is complimentary and very good, actually. We loved the fact that they served until 10 am. Anyone who doesn't like this place can't possibly be happy anywhere, as we are particularly picky as to where we stay. We loved it and will be back! Thanks, Mike and all the rest of the staff for making our stay so pleasant!

First a word of caution: This is no place for tourists seeking the Ft. Lauderdale experience. It is well out of the way of anything fun, cool or scenic. That said, we found this Holiday Inn a bargain since all we wanted was a place to sleep before catching a plane. It is handy to I95 and the Turnpike. The regular FLL airport is an easy 20 mins. south.

We checked in late and got a call about 11:30 a.m. asking if we needed a late check-out. Expecting a fee, we were delighted to learn we simply were extended and could stay until 2. Thanks, kind desk guy!

The room was modern, clean and didn't smell at all (an issue with some Fla. lodging due to mildew). There was a cold fridge and I think a microwave. The TV was good and got all the business travelers channels. One offputting thing: The room lighting in most of the fixtures was environmentally friendly -- as in hard icky white.
