“Good surprise”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

I was concerned about booking a Days Inn and was pleasantly relieved. This was a park and stay package for a cruise. The hotel is in nice shape; the room was comfortable; the complimentary breakfast was good; the free shuttle to the ship was an hour late due to traffic congestion. They can only drop off so we had to take a taxi back after disembarkation: about $30 including the tip. It was a convenient location. I would definitely book there again if cruising out of Fort Lauderdale.

After arriving at the airport in mid December, we called for the shuttle, but we were waiting at the wrong area (our fault). Luckily, Brian Riley the general manager who was driving the shuttle that day found us. He was very nice and professional and gave us some tips about where to eat and when to catch the shuttle to the cruise terminal. We arrived early in the afternoon and check in was at 4:00 pm, but they gave us a non smoking room within an hour. The hotel lobby and room were very clean and they had coffee and tea in the lobby all the time. Also, all staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a party of 5, but due to fire regulations, they could not put a cot in our room. They provided free shuttle from the airport to hotel and cruise terminal. The hotel was very good and we would definitely return and recommend it to others.

Booked this hotel after reading reviews of multiple Park and Cruise options. It is easy to get to (my parents drove in) and they sent a shuttle to get the rest of us at the airport. There was a bit of a wait because the shuttle was also delivering people to the port but it wasn't horrible. The rooms were exactly what you would expect from a Days Inn - clean, comfortable and attractive. Front desk staff were all helpful and they served a good breakfast. Most importantly, the parking was in a secure and lighted lot and I had no concerns about leaving my car there for the week. The hotel transported us to the port and we took a taxi/van back at the end of the trip for apx. $17.00. Overall much less expensive and more convenient than when we have parked on site at the port. The taxi picked us up right at the terminal and delivered us straight to our car. We did not have to deal with port traffic and were making our way out of Fort Lauderdale literally 45 minutes after we walked off the ship! We will definately use this hotel again if we need a place to park long term.

Much nicer than the average Days Inn. Very convenient location. Provided free airport as well as Port Everglades shuttle to the cruises . Staff was very friendly and helpful. They matched the Priceline rate. Breakfast was quite good. We stayed at the hotel prior to our cruise and took a taxi to the airport after the cruise which turned out to be only $15!

Room Tip: We asked for a room not facing the interstate.

Booked room through Priceline for a very reasonable rate, and even got a free upgrade to a business room at check-in. The stay included airport and cruiseport transfers, breakfast, and complimentary coffee/tea in the lobby as well as a bottle of water in the room. The breakfast buffet had lots of variety. Room had a functional layout, and included a mini fridge and microwave. There was also free wifi.

The staff were friendly and accomodating. The airport shuttle arrived promptly. I used the complimentary hotel phone at the airport. Overall the stay was pleasant, and was a good start to the cruise. I would stay here again.

I recently chose the Days Inn Fort Lauderdale Airport South to stay prior to a Royal Caribbean cruise...what a great choice! This is a nice, clean hotel with a comfortable lobby, friendly and accomodating staff, and great-looking rooms. The shuttle to the cruise port and from the airport is free, the coffee/breakfast in the morning is great, and there's a Denny's next door. It's super close to the port and the price is right -- I'll definitely return the next time I'm in Fort Lauderdale for a cruise, and I highly recommend it.
