“Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2011

I recently stayed at Away Inn for a lengthy period of time. At the time of making the reservation I was not familiar with this boutque inn. It was more than I could have ever hoped. The location was exceptional with being able to walk to everything we needed: beach, stores, entertainment, etc. However, the hospitality that we received was even better. The rooms were tremendously clean and everything we hoped for and than some. The front desk staff was unbelievably helpful and the general manager, who lives on property, was there for us 24 hours a day. Away Inn is such a tremendously friendly place and we could not be happier with our stay. We will definitely be staying at Away Inn from now on. You will be as satisfied as possible. Away Inn is the BEST!

Stayed here with my husband and our son in May. The room was dirty, and smelled bad. The water in the tub and the bathroom sink was yellow. There was loud noise
at the pool area all hours of the night. The manager and her staff were very unfriendly. Would not stay at the Away Inn ever again!

Great value for money, that's how I would sum up my experience at the Away Inn.

The rooms:
Extremely spacious, coming with kitchenette incl. fridge, coffee machine and microwave, bathroom with bathtub.

The location:
Two minutes from the beach, two minutes to the shopping mall (incl. diner for breakfast, lunch or dinner), about 30 minutes to Fort Lauderdale city by bus (no.11, bus stop is right in front of the hotel). Especially the latter is very convenient if you do not have a car or don't want to worry about parking it.

They also have a nice standard-sized pool, which we didn't use but which looked very well maintained. The staff was very helpful. The owners actually live in the same building, so you can reach them any time you want in case you need any assistance.

Once again, considering the low rate we paid, the hotel can be HIGHLY recommended. Would definitely come again!

The owners are very nice.
The hotel has a classical motel architecture, but very modern, elegant, and recently renovated rooms.
The hotel is unfortunately not situated on the beach side, but on the other side of the Ocean Drive -> pool area is a bit noisy - but ok for quick refreshments. Noise level in the rooms is ok.

We stayed at The Away Inn for three nights and were completely satisfied!!! The location is GREAT!! The rooms were spacious, clean and updated. The fully equipped kitchen was a very nice feature. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We also used the washers and dryers, which were great.

The shopping center, directly across the street offered just about anything we needed. Publix, CVS, eateries....
