“Best place to stay in Lauderdale By The Sea”
Reviewed March 11, 2011

My wife, daughter and I've been coming to Lauderdale By The Sea for over 15 years. For the last three years we've been staying at the Tropic Seas Resort and it suits us perfectly. You're secluded from the road and adjecent hotels, yet steps away from the beach and the warm Atlantic sea. You're a few minutes walk away from some of th best restaurants in the area and there's access to anything you'd need.

Stayed August 2010, traveled with family

My husband and I traveled to Tropic Seas in LBTS with our almost two-year-old and can't say enough good things about the hotel, its location and its family-friendly amenities. It was nice to be able to dine in our room or on the beach (taking a toddler out to eat can be a challenge) and to have the pool as an option or the Atlantic! This was a very relaxing trip that was enjoyed by all in our family! I'd highly recommend Tropic Seas!

You will not find a better place to spend a winter month than Tropic Seas Motel.
My wife and I have been coming here for nearly 20 years and it seems to get better
each year. The staff is excellent and the resort is very well kept and clean. We have
already reserved for next February as many other long time visitors have done.

We have been staying at Tropic Seas Resort for 20 years now and it gets better and better every year. We rent a 1 bedroom apartment which is perfect for us as it has everything we need for a relaxing vacation including a nice kitchen and a seperate bedroom. The hotel is very clean and the staff is extremely accomodating. We especially enjoy the proximity to shopping centers, restaurants and the beach. It is close to the hustle and bustle of the downtown but not too close. We highly recommend Tropic Seas Resort to all of our friends and will definately come back in a few months.

We happened upon The Tropic Seas Resort Hotel by chance and we are so happy we did! The Hotel is in a perfect location right on the beach. We stayed in at a wonderful ocean front apartment that was very clean and very nice. This is not a 5 star resort however it is a great place for some one who wants a great place on the beach.

We just completed a 9 day stay at the Tropic Seas following a 15 day cruise. This small, older motel was the perfect place to relax. The grounds are immaculate and just a few steps from our room and we were on the beach. The efficiency unit we were in was clean and very comfortable - it seems that updating and re-freshing the motel is an ongoing effort and they are doing a good job. I had done a lot of research online before deciding on the Tropic Seas and I was so happy with the choice I had made. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location is great for walking to a little strip mall with a Publix, CVS and various small businesses. Walking in the opposite direction and we were at the pier with numerous eating and shopping opportunities. We loved the "old Florida" atmosphere and are already thinking of returning next year - perhaps for a month.

We recently stayed at Tropic Seas Resort for a family vacation. The hotel is perfectly located directly on the beach and is also close to a grocery store, pharmacy and several good restaurants.

We stayed in a spacious one bedroom apartment which was perfect for our family. It had a fully appointed kitchen with all of the necessary utensils and appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, stove, refrigerator and coffee maker. The wireless internet worked great and was very fast. We also enjoyed the television with the iphone dock which allowed us to watch movies from our iphone on the television.

We would highly recommend Tropic Seas Resort.
