“vacation”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

i paid maybe $120 for a room during the week. the rooms seemed up to date and were pretty good size, comfortable beds, the bathroom had a walk-in shower, and i believe there was a flat screen TV. i didn't get to use the pool but i took a walk outside and the pool area was pretty large and cool. the pool was decent size, there was a hot tub, a tiki bar outside, and an area to eat outside from the internal restaurant.

I stayed at this hotel one night pre-cruise and I would highly recommend it. The hotel was very clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. Complimentary coffee in the morning and cold drinks in the afternoon in the lobby. The pool area is nicely landscaped and you will want to enjoy time there. The food at the restaurant at the hotel was very good for breakfast and dinner. We did not have lunch there. Prices are reasonable (for a hotel). You have the option of dining inside or outside on the terrace, by the pool. Free shuttle from hotel to Port Everglades was very efficient and a selling point for me. Note that if you schedule an 11 a.m. ride to the port, be warned that is when the traffic is very congested so it will take longer to get there. Two suggestions: ask for a room facing the pool because it's the only view that is a good one; do not wait more than 20 minutes for the hotel shuttle to take you from airport to hotel because it may take up to one hour if you do wait in the hot sun.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for 1 night before we drove to Miami for our cruise. It was a very busy hotel for that 16 hours that we were there. Many people going to cruise ports in Lauderdale and Miami. The place was very clean and the beds were great.
They have a breakfast, lunch and dinner. We only had the breakfast and it was average at an average price.
We had no complaints with the place and the few employees that we encountered were friendly.
We would stay at this Holiday Inn again. It is about 5 miles from the airport (FLL). We had a car but I know they did provide a shuttle. Our room was $125 for 2 queen beds, thru Priceline.

Very nice hotel for a pre- or post cruise. Very clean hotel with fabulous beds! Had a great night sleep on Tempurpedic bed. They had great shuttle service from the hotel and to the port which made it smooth sailing for us right from the start. Pool is great and an extra nice touch. Did not eat at the restaurant. There is a Denny's across the street. In making reservations I needed special arrangements -call the hotel direct they are more than happy to accommodate you.

Room Tip: Put in a request. They do their best to accommodate you! Rooms facing East are best as they do not f...

Just average for me. I have been working in the hotel industry for over 15 years, and whenever a guest has a reservation for a room that has a bad view, I move them before they arrive(as to avoid any potential complaints). I was a walk-in with no reservation at this hotel on the night of November 6th. Either the desk clerk was new or did not care that my room looked out over the roof. This is mostly the basis for my rating, and I would have complained to them and moved if I wasn't such a passive person. Several other complaints would be that the air conditioning unit was extremely loud (I had to adjust the tv volume everytime the a/c came on and went off), and had electrical wires (certainly a danger) hanging out from underneath it. The second floor must have also been the smoking area at one point because it smelled like stale smoke, and the walls and carpets in the hallway were very dingy. The good points were: an above average lobby area, beautiful pool deck, nicely appointed bathrooms and an extremely comfortable posturpedic bed. Finally I would say that the room nor the experience at the Holiday Inn was worth the $144 and change I shelled out for it.

Room Tip: If you are going to stay here avoid the second floor...especially room 211

The hotel was very nice and clean, as were our room. Both times we slept on a Tempurpedic! We really enjoyed the pool. We stayed here two times once before we left to go to Aruba and 2 nights after. Both stays, we had a horrible experience at the restaurant. The lady worked there hated her job! We weren't the only ones who complained to hotel management. They too didn't care. Overall the hotel is worth your money. Not much to eat around the hotel but it is only a $5 cab ride to major restaurants.

I was put up there as I was teaching at a local dance festival. The hotel was in a good location for I-95 and the festival. The pool area was wonderful with a heated pool with a waterfall (i.e. back massager) and a Jacuzzi. The only downside is that one elevator did not work, and the other one was very slow.
