This hotel was just such an unexpected pleasure... Finding a safe and inexpensive hotel in Fort Lauderdale is a huge challenge. I never thought it was possible to have both; safety and value... This is it. My search is over.
I had another unexpected layover in Fort Lauderdale and had to spend the night... This was the third cheapest room I could find on the internet, but the first two cheapest were hotels were properties I've already decided I could never stay at again (see other reviews).
The shuttle from the airport was the fastest I've ever been picked up - ever - at Fort Lauderdale airport. I think I waited less than 15 minutes from the time I called. I was so shocked. This NEVER happens in Fort Lauderdale...
Check in was fast, but the walk to the room was a little far. The hotel is set up with with two buildings beyond the pool and front desk... The room I was given was on the 3rd floor, in the second building. It took a couple minutes, but it was made easy by the map the desk girl gave me.
The room itself was fine, for the price paid. It was clean, but a little worn down. I have no complaints though. Again, for the price, I was expecting much worse.
The internet is "okay." Netflix had a few hiccups trying to stream video. Even though the website touts "Free High Speed Internet," "High Speed" must be the brand name. My fasted connection speed registered under 2 Mbps.
Plug outlets were also a little hard to find. There was one on the desk and one in the bathroom... I had to move some furniture and unplug a lamp to plug in my cell phone.
Some other crappy little notes though: The vending machine stole $2 from me. And I also never received my requested wake up call. So be sure to set an alarm.
The breakfast is also pretty sad. There were some mystery meat sausages, fake eggs, and some pastries that seemed a little dated (they all stuck together into one giant pastry). Not great, but better than nothing. The coffee sucked, but the juice was good.
The shuttle departed for the airport on time the next morning, The morning shuttle was a little rickety, but again, an on time hotel/airport shuttle in Fort Lauderdale is like the Loch Ness Monster... Some people claim it exists, but no one really has any proof... Well, I'm a believer now... The shuttle was amazing.
Aside from the minor little annoyances listed above, I have to admit that I enjoyed my stay. I often have to stay the night in Fort Lauderdale on business and wish I would have found this hotel sooner. It is perfect for anyone trying to stay on a budget but not willing to compromise their safety. I would definitely stay here again!
