“great view of the ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

On October 30-31 we stayed in a two-room suite that was very spacious and well-appointed. Two bedrooms and two baths plus a small kitchen were more than adequate to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We had two balconies from which could see the ocean. There were also a pool and spa. The breakfast buffet was better than average. The only problem we encountered was a double billing for our two night stay. We reserved the suite on one card but decided to use a different one when checking in. Both cards were billed, and we haven't had a resolution to the problem yet. I am certain that we will be credited for the overcharge in due time. The rates were reasonable for a hotel on the beach, and we will stay there again the next time we're in the Fort Lauderdale area.

Had a very relaxing weekend here. The hotel lobby is bright and inviting. The rooms and also clean,bright and relaxing. All the rooms the rooms have a small balcony with a bistro table and two chairs. All the rooms have an ocean view. There is a kitchenette(two burner electric stove, full size fridge and microwave). The bathroom is large enough to have a stacked washer and dryer.

The lounge/restaurant has great views of the beach. The food is average but the service is outstanding. The complementary breakfast was good. The choices were many with both hot and cold selections.

Will definitely be back.

First off, I have never really found fault with any Marriott Residence Inn, but this one goes above and beyond. Every room has a great ocean front view and balcony (if keep balcony door open at night get nice breeze and can hear ocean-very relaxing), rooms are well appointed and clean (with its own washer and dryer), along with great kitchen space. Two huge clean pools, good sized and equipped fitness facility, decent complimentary breakfast, very nice restaurant with outdoor ocean front seating, and gas grill if you would like to cook your own fresh seafood (which can be purchased a few blocks away or caught on many fishing charters nearby)! Staff was also very friendly and receptive and I would stay here again without question. Also rates very competitive for area.

Room Tip: They are all good; guess higher up the better for expanded views and towards ocean

We stayed at this hotel using Marriott points. We requested a high room because we read that is where you get the best views. We were offered a 3rd floor room BUT right behind the ocean front room, so it was practically ocean front. We took the 1 bedroom and were very pleased. The room had a washer and dryer, a kitchen with everything you need except the oven and a full size fridge. The main room consisted of a desk and a couch with a small table and 3 chairs. The flat screen TV was on the wall. This room also had a queen bed in it. It had a private balcony. There was also a bathroom in this room. Then you walk through a door and enter the bedroom. It had a queen bed, TV, private balcony and a bathroom. It was spacious enough for 4 adults. We sat at the pool, chairs and towels are provided. We sat at the beach, chairs were provided but we had to drag them down to the beach and that is not so easy when you have stuff to carry. We had lunch in the restaurant and that was good. They provide free interent in the rooms, it was kinda slow. There is no place to park your car except valet, which is $19 per day, charged to your room. It was strange since the covered lot to park was right there, guests could have certainly gotten their own cars. The free breakfast was very good.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel, it has a great location and great views.

Room Tip: get a higher up room

Recently my best girlfriends and I stayed at the Residence Inn on Pompano Beach. The service, ammenities and location were fantastic. I would highly recommend staying at this property - get to know the staff! Jennifer (manager), Richard & Trey (restaurant) and Alexis (spa) took extra measures to make sure we truly were on vacation! The mimosas are perfectly mixed, the complimentary breakfast is a real treat and the ocean access is beautiful! The tiki bar next door is also really fun!

Room Tip: The ocean front suites are amazing!

We have stayed prior, to rave reviews.
Again we were thrilled at the service, rooms, beach... The entire combination makes this property our "go-to" resort when we need to be in Fort Lauderdale.
We had a bit of an error on our prior folio and the general manager (jenny?)fixed it immediately to more than our satisfaction ....... Stellar customer service is still

This was my second trip for Labor Day....what a great place. Really nice staff and extreemly accomodating. They went out of their way to take care of me. The parking is $20 a day. Beach chairs are free and nice. Breakfast is hot and lots of variety. I'll definitely visit again!

Room Tip: 2 bedrooms are best view.
