“4th of July 2014”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

My friend and I have been going to Lauderdale by the Sea for the last 8 years over the 4th of July. We have stayed in a few different Hotels,. Last year and this year stayed at the lovely Tropic Seas Resort - it is a beautifully maintained Hotel and very clean right on the beach. The bathrooms are very clean, the beds are luxurious and the views are spectacular.The efficiencies provide all the dishes and utensils to cook in the room. I would recommend this to everyone. We plan to be there again next 4th of July.

Room Tip: They are all great rooms with great views of the ocean.

Another 2 week vacation to Tropic Seas Lauderdale By the Sea, and it gets better every time. Subtle improvements by the management keep the standard of the rooms at 5 star. The location is fantastic and the Eleanor, Linda and Emmy couldn't be more helpful.
The beach is cleaned daily by the local council and the only problem you will encounter is that the sea temperature is too hot! But there's always the pool.
The hotel is 400 yards from several great bars and restaurants around the Pier area, that has been greatly improved.
Thanks to Eleanor and the staff for another great vacation.

Room Tip: All have great views but 1st floor views are better than ground floor.

We go the Tropic Seas for our annual family reunion. With the variety of spaces available, all of our family gets the accommodations they need. Its a short walk to town, is directly on the Atlantic and is really well maintained. We always love our stay!

Room Tip: For views, second floor is a must.

Love the view and location! Very peaceful and relaxing place. The beach is right in front of the room. The hotel is very clean, there is always people taking care of the pool, grass, rooms, etc. Over all, its the perfect place to spend a romantic vacation with your special someone and family.

What we loved most about Tropic Seas was the view, which from every room is absolutely incredible! The rooms are well maintained, very comfortable, and the resort had all the necessary amenities of home. Beautifully landscaped grounds surround the pool and patio area, all of which are extremely well kept as well as spacious and private. Our hostesses, Eleanor and Linda, were fabulous! They were naturals at promoting a friendly, family-like atmosphere with all patrons. In addition, Eleanor and Linda are extremely knowledgeable about the area, always able to answer any questions as well as recommend outstanding eateries - whether that be awesome Italian food, or simple sandwiches. This was our 4th trip and we can't wait to go back!

Tropic Seas has a fantastic beachfront location. The beach is just steps from your room. The beach is wide and well taken care of. We watched in the morning as any trash and seaweed was picked up and the sand was smoothed by tractor. It was a 5-10 minute walk to the retail stores in Lauderdale by the Sea. Eleanor and Linda were great to work with starting with the reservation process and throughout our stay including Eleanor taking of photo of us just before we departed. I have not seen the type of care provided by Innkeepers like Eleanor and Linda in a long time. On our Florida trips we like to stay on both the the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. On this trip we stayed on the Atlantic Coast (Tropic Seas) and Gulf Coast (Marco Island Hilton). For the overall beach experience I liked Tropic Seas and Lauderdale by the Sea best. For room selection I would ask for a room on the second floor. We had room 205. Rooms are a little dated but updating work has been done and property is in good shape and clean. We loved Lauderdale by the Sea and the beachfront Tropic Seas!

Room Tip: Second Floor Rooms have the best views. Room 201, 202, and 205 seem especially good

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Tropic Seas and were not disappointed with our choice. The hotel/motel is dated but the rooms and grounds were well maintained. Our room that included the cooking facility was clean and bright, nicely decorated (as in the period the hotel dates to). We enjoyed sitting just outside out door and visiting with other guests. Parking is just off the street but ample and close. The managers, Eleanor and Linda were friendly and helpful when needed. We would highly recommend the Tropic Seas for a casual stay for a night or even a week or longer.

Room Tip: The hotel is L shaped. The rooms to the north were the best for sitting out especially in the mornin...
