We found staff friendly and helpful. The hotel has a heated pool and is located a block from a Publix grocery store and a beautiful beach. It is also a short walk to the main square and restaurants in the village of Lauderdale by the Sea. It is located on the A1A route north south which makes it handy to take the #11 bus downtown or north to Pompano Shopping Centre if you don't have a car. This location also has a down side as traffic may be noisy, especially on weekends. Ground floor front rooms are not ideal as everyone entering the hotel passes by coming and going. It is easy to hear suitcase wheels and cell phones at all hours. Our main concern was the lack of designated smoking area. There were ashtrays on all outdoor patio tables and it seemed that many guests smoked cigarettes regularly, including in the area by the pool, with no consideration for non-smokers. We even noticed a staff person smoking while on duty near the supply cupboard by the pool.
