We booked this property because it offered free shuttle service to and from the airports and cruise ports, and it was reasonably priced. I saw some of the (bad) reviews on this site, but decided to take a chance. It was well worth it. The property is just off US Highway 1 in an older section of town. This is NOT an "upscale" neighborhood, just mid-lower socio-economic that modern times has passed by. I never felt threatened or afraid in the neighborhood--I walked around in it. Yeah, there are small homes with lawn-cars, and check-cashing places nearby. It was far enough off the highway that noise was not a problem. Staff was friendly. The place might be hard to find if you weren't being shuttled.

The property itself was in good condition, clean, comfortable, and spacious, but modest. It had some extra room and a reefer and microwave. It had a modest Continental Breakfast. It had the smallest, thinnest towels since my Jr. High gym class, but a comfortable bed and air conditioning. A long stay here might not be enjoyable, but for an overnight between airlines and cruise ship, it was FINE! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for budget-minded travellers.

We chose this hotel because we had an early flight at the airport the next morning and they provided a free shuttle(everything else we tried in the area was booked solid). Most people that were staying there seemed to be staying for the free shuttle to the cruise ships or the free shuttle to the airport. If that is what you are looking for, this hotel is perfect for you. We stayed on both the arrival and return. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. This is NOT the kind of hotel you choose for a week's vacation. It is in a run-down neighborhood and has no curb appeal. It has a small unheated fenced-in pool and limited restaurants within walking distance.

I reserved a room here to be close to the Ft. Lauderdale airport before taking an early morning flight to the Bahamas. Expedia had it ranked as a two star property, which would have been fine for literally nothing but a night of sleep before an early flight...

We did not even get out of the car, the neighborhood looked so bad.

There were people loitering out front and in the streets around it, the immediate area around it was AWFUL, and we decided to forget about our prepaid room and LEAVE. We ended up finding a room at a Holiday Inn just over on the A1A for only $79 a night.

Long story short, I did not feel safe there at all - and believe me, I've stayed in (and lived in, for that matter) some pretty rough-looking neighborhoods before. I REALLY don't think I'm overly paranoid. I have no idea if this hotel is okay or not inside... perhaps it is... but there was just no way we were going to stay there - and that was at my boyfriend's insistence as much as mine.
