“Clean, roomy and attractive”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

This hotel is convenient to I-95 and the Port Everglades cruise port. The staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean, roomy and attractive. The property has a safe "feel" to it. Parking is free and a good free hot breakfast was available. Our room was next to the elevator and there was a muted noise when it operated. It was not a big problem, but I would suggest requesting a room that is not immediately next to the elevator. I would stay here again. The many positive reviews of this hotel are completely accurate.

Dear Valued Guest from Florida

Thank You for taking the time to review our hotel. We appreciate your kind words about our staff and hotel and the great review (and we are sure other TripAdvisors do as well).
We are getting bids to sound proof the back side of the elevator. This process will take approx. a month (to get bid and approvals and permit if needed.)
Again, we thank you for staying with us. Hope to see you the next time you travel our way.
Sincerely
Jo Jean & Staff

After reading the reviews at tripadvisor, I decided I stayed 1 night @ this hotel. Thank God it was only 1 night. The hotel is having a lot of traffic thanks to the reviews from this site. These reviews DO NOT reflect the quality of this hotel and they are WAY overrated. The hotel probably had a recent remodel but the rooms are still old and musty. After all remwmber this is still a Holiday Inn.

Dear Sir/Madam

So sorry that you didn't like the hotel you stayed in. We are positive that you are mistaken on the location. We just opened June 10, 2010. We didn't put paint on or make-up. The building was here for a few yrs, but the entire inside was distroyed and remodeled, walls and all......The Holiday Inn Express value all our guests and appreciate all our reviews. We take pride in the cleanliness and all brand new furniture, carpets, walls and fixtures.

Please keep us in mind for the future stays here in Fort Lauderdale. We are located on Commercial Blvd.
Sincerely
Jo Jean & Staff

We booked this hotel prior to our cruise from the Port Everglades. What a beautiful hotel. Very clean, and we were upgraded to a suite. Comfortable bed, the breakfast in the morning was your typical Holiday Inn breakfast, but still very good. Great experience at this hotel. Very comforting like home.

We booked this particular hotel because we had a car rental and it was fairly close to the airport and car rental return. The hotel does not have a shuttle, but if you have your own transportation it certainly is worth it to stay here. Very quiet.

We were lucky enough to stay at The Holiday Express that made you feel as though we were home. Each day you were greated by a staff that knew us and asked if they could do anything to make the stay any better. The staff always had smiles from Mrs Allen to the our housekeeper.

The condition of the hotel was the best that I've had ever stayed in. Anyone who had worked in this hotel, must of been the best in their field because it all looked perfect.

I have stayed in Marriotts that didn't make you feel as good as this Hotel did

Super friendly staff and a great, clean and comfortable hotel. We stayed here for 2 nights pre-cruise and chose the Holiday Inn mostly for its price, sharing a room with 2 queen beds amongst the four of us. With a car, this hotel is only a 20 minute drive from the Port, and only a few minutes drive to restaurants and shopping. They have a nice pool and a great hot breakfast including a really cool "pancake making machine".

We stayed here for one night on our way to Mexico, and would definitely return. The location is great. Very close to route 95 and the airport. Also, not far from Lauderdale- by-the-Sea, which is a good spot for cocktails and dinner. The room was immaculate and very spacious, with a separate sitting area, beautiful bathroom, and very comfortable king bed. Breakfast the next day was continental but offered many varied choices. The frontdesk staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The hotel entrance isn't the easiest to see, so you should turn at the stoplight right before the hotel and proceed around the block to the entrance.
