“Wonderful stay- Great thanks to Robert and Michele!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

We had a great stay at this Holiday Inn! The staff was wonderful! I would love to give great thanks to Robert, he was so helpful and accommodating. Not only did he give us his vaulable time to help direct us around and make us feel comfortable, but we got to know truly how hard he works there. He is very dedicated to his job and making guests happy. He works hard around the clock to keep the place up and running smoothly. He is truly a wonderful person who loves his job! If there is any other way to commemorate him through Holiday Inn I would love to know. The genuine hard work he puts into that Holiday Inn shows! Please take care of him! He is a valuable employee.
We also enjoyed the company of Michele, the breakfast hostess. She was so bubbly and very welcoming. We truly loved her personailty during breakfast, she made us laugh! She is also a very dedicated and hard working employee! One to keep for sure! She deserves the cruise she has been longing for, a lovely vacation for all her hard work!

Overall a wonderful, clean and welcoming Holiday Inn. My husband had worked for Holiday Inn for over 30 years. We stay in nothing but and would for sure come back!
Thank you Robert and Michele for all you do and the rest of the staff.
Thank you for our lovely stay!

This hotel was a lot better than I imagined it could be. The hotel is not too far from the airport or cruise terminal in Ft. Lauderdale. There was a Denny's restaurant and McDonalds right across the street if you are craving a snack or meal. The interior of the hotel is very nice and the rooms are spacious and up-to-date on modern conveniences (tv, workspace, etc.). The bed was extremely comfortable and the perfect size. If you are looking to enjoy the pool, it was really nice as well. If you want a good place to stay for the right price, this is the place for you.

10 out of 10. This hotel staff was professional, helpful and smart right from the beginning, starting with reservations. The property is in EXCELLENT condition and worth your business. They have a beautiful heated pool with waterfall and lights, hot tub, poolside lounge chairs, poolside bar with tv's, roomy airport transfers, and the rooms are spacious, clean, newly renovated and updated. Perfect stay. Great value for your money. Skip the Hilton at the airport (which is set to be torn down and demolished in Mar 2014) and stay here instead. :)

I've traveled a lot and this motel has got to be one of the best I have ever stayed at. First of all they have free car service from the airport to the hotel, which is only about ten minutes away. Second the have a gigantic pool that gives you the feeling of being in the tropics somewhere, with lights that enhance the palm trees surrounding the pool.

Now after swimming for a bit, they have an outside bar along with one inside also that is attached to a dining area. The menu may be limited but the convenience of not having to search for a watering hole and a eatery is much better than wanting a superb dining experience.

I will always stay at this place when cruising out of Ft. Lauderdale, which we do about 3 times a year.

We stayed here a few days ago mainly because we were flying out of FTL so early. Its conveniently located off of 95 which was a huge plus. 10 minutes from FTL airport and about 30 from South Beach. Hotel was remodeled and looks and smells clean. The rooms were spacious and upgraded. The only complaint I had was the odor of someone smoking on our floor. We believe it was due to a door that leads to a balcony found at the end of the hall, which people use to light up their cigarettes. Aside from this we had no complaints. We didn't eat there or spend much time at the hotel besides showering and sleeping. For the price you cant beat this place.

Room Tip: Choose a room thats far from the end of the hall

I had reserved a room for 4 nights and prepaid. My plans changed and I asked if I could reduce it to 2 nights but take 2 rooms, so there would be the same number of room nights and revenue. I was told "no". Their policy is there policy. This despite me being a platinum member of IHG. I contacted IHG and they were of no more help and refused to intervene with the local hotel. I used to stay here 2-3 times a year; never again for myself or my company and employees. Same goes for all IHG properties.

Room Tip: Find another hotel.

We waited an hour in the rain at the airport for the free hotel shuttle . After two phone calls to hotel it finally arrived. The van was old and dirty. The hotel was clean but our room was not the one promised. It was raining so we ate in the hotel restaurant and my son was served raw chicken. They replaced it but I was done ten minutes before his order arrived. They did not charge us but it was a lousy experience. The hair dryer did not work the next morning. I spoke to the front desk and they apologized but did not care.
