“Fine budget motel”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

The Tropi Rock provided just what we needed; a simple but clean room in the Ft Lauderdale area, convenient to the FLL and FXE airports. A bonus was the fridge and microwave in the kitchenette, so we could stock a breakfast for our 5:45am departure. Dated decor, but you're not paying for that, you're paying for clean and convenient to Ft Lauderdale. And it's got a nice lounge area by the pool as a bonus.

HT3777,
Thanks for your informative review. You're right, Tropirock isn't the fanciest of hotels but with complimentary parking & wi-fi, unbeatable rates and a prime location, it's definitely hard to beat. We have a property for every taste and budget in North Beach Village and we are so happy that you choose to stay in one of our boutique hotels. Thanks so much. Hope to see you soon!

They rated this a 4 1/2 stars!! Either the person was totally duped or high on something. At least if they publish this, you will know they are unbiased. Stayed two nights Sat and the next Tues. Tuesday couldn't be canceled without losing the full cost. The first night's room was a dump. Anything that could be broken, was. TV had 5 channels, and that was after "engineering" fixed it. After complaining at check out, a nice lady reserved a different room for our return. That one was acceptable, but the facility is no where near Trip Advisor's rating. Incredibly badly managed. Seems like they are waiting for a wrecking ball to come through for a new high rise. The only reason I rated it 2 is because of Patty and the second night's stay.

Room Tip: Better check the room first ! Some are not as awful as others. No clock, no phone, only 2 towels, no...

capnrico,
We're sorry to hear that you didn't agree with the review rating. It's guest feedback that generates the star ratings. We are pleased that Patty was able to earn that second star. Patty and the rest of the staff work hard to accommodate the guests and we appreciate you noticing. Give us a call next time you visit and let us help you find the perfect room for you! Thanks for your feedback, NBV

We stayed here one night post-cruise. It's not a luxury hotel, however we just needed to stay here the one night. It met our needs. It had 2 double beds and a great kitchen that included a stove, microwave, fridge, dishes and cutlery. It is located within walking distance to the beach. The pool looked clean. The washroom a bit worn down, but clean and did have a fan. We were located on the second floor. They did have an elevator, however it looked sketchy so we used the stairs instead. I did not realize they had umbrellas and chairs and towels to use at the beach until I read a recent review. Would have been helpful to know that. If location is more important to you than the price than this is a place to stay. The lady at the front desk was friendly.

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for 1 night before and 1 night after my cruise. I booked this room a couple months prior to staying and was looking for a room that was reasonable priced and close to to the beach. Our room had 2 king size beds and one bathroom.

We met the staff in the office and they were very pleasant to deal with. The room was very dated and could have used more cleaning on the floors. The bathroom was very old the shower knobs barely worked. Their was no fan in their and we also couldn't open the old window. We slept fine and didn't have any issue with noise at night.

The garden and pool area was very nice. The web site stated they had bikes for rent and when I saw them they were in rough shape. The hotel had chairs, umbrellas, and towels to use at the beach. For some reason they lockup the washer and dryer room after 8PM so if you want to do laundry your out of luck.

So if your looking for something close to the beach and reasonable priced this isn't a bad option. I will probably not stay here again because of so many better options. Hope this review helps.

We stayed here the night before our return flight and I am glad we did not stay longer. The front desk staff were pleasant and professional. The cleaning staff seemed fine, although they were coming and going constantly (from the other nearby properties I assume) into the evening and early the next morning. No big deal, except our room was right next to the stairs and the constant talking/yelling/noise got old. It's really a noisy place in general, given that the rooms are one thin door away from an open-air hallway. Also, they allow pets and there was a dog barking and whining in the next room for a considerable amount of time. Small irritations, but when the walls and doors are so thin, it starts to wear on you.

I was told by the front desk that it was a non-smoking room, but there was a can of butts out on our balcony and every other balcony I could see. I threw ours away to avoid a potential fine for something we didn't do. Also, the parking spaces are tiny, with little space between the street and your bumper, or the next car over. I was paranoid about our rental car getting hit the whole time.

The rooms are charming in the pictures and they have done some creative cosmetic touches to disguise water stains and general age. But when we walked in, it felt different than I was expecting. The room was small and it didn't feel super clean or comfortable. My major complaint was that the glass shutters on the bathroom are not fully frosted in some places, so you are definitely flashing someone on the street if they are looking up at the right time.

All in all, it was fine for a night. You are not going to find a cheaper place to stay that close to the beach, which is the major selling point of this place. Definitely not the worst place I've stayed, but if you can't handle a bit of discomfort or noise, look elsewhere.

THe front desk people were friendly and helpful. Patti is great. The room with kitchenette, more like a kitchen, was perfect. Large room for 3 sisters. Clean. Homey. Walked to the beach every day, wonderful beach. Pool was great. nice garden. quiet to sleep, but construction during the day. Had to walk some distance on the beach to get away from that construction noise. Shuttle service reasonable. Nice group of people who stayed there, some stay for a while and come every year. Near restaurants and nightlife. NearLas Olas. Cheap shuttle to downtown Las Olas, Hop On, nearby. Part of a North Beach group of hotels so the other hotels facilities were open to us. Safe. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms were great. There is an elevator.

tyra Toronto,
Thanks for your detailed review. You pretty much hit upon everything. Tropirock offers great value, at a great location and since it's part of the NBV family, guests can enjoy the amenities at the other hotels. We hope that you and your sisters are able to come back again soon and visit. We'd love to have you! Thanks, Maryam
