Popular hotel with beach location and sea views offering great value

The Avalon Waterfront Inns is well known as an ideal base for exploring the beautiful waterfront region of Fort Lauderdale, and its location could not be better for seeing the local sights. The hotel sits directly across the road from the beach strip and runs parallel to the Atlantic Boulevard. This exclusive strip often comes at a high price, but not at the Avalon Waterfront Inns. Though the property is a budget hotel, it offers friendly staff and serviceable decor and furnishings. Enjoy all Fort Lauderdale offers from this ideal spot. Self-parking is also available for a charge.

3 Reasons To Stay:
  • Extremely affordable price given the excellent location
  • Right on the seafront, providing the best sea views and beach access within minutes
  • Perfect base for exploring the bustling local nightlife and many restaurants, cafes and bars

great location, but could use a makeover

perfect location. The pool is nice. The kids were in out of the pool and cross the street to the beach several times during the day and really enjoyed being so close to the beach. Parking was difficult, especially if you come in later than 8 p.m.rooms were not very clean. Keep your shoes on!

perfect location

This hotel has the perfect location right by the beach for a low price, the room was not too bad, it had a fridge and microwave, can not complain. Pool is perfect, clean and the best thing, no one bothers you while you are staying there, the pool never closes. Even though not the 5 star hotel i will definitely be going back.

Nice location, gross room!

We stayed for one night before our cruise embarked. The location was within walking distance of the beach, shops, and restaurants/bars. However, I did not sleep well--paranoid that someone was going to break into the first floor room. The windows and doors were made of glass slats--screens had holes and appeared to have been broken into before. Do not stay here!

Spring into a BREAK

The hotel is located on Ft. Lauderdale's most exciting beach front. It is an ideal experience for those that comes for sea, sand and sun.... NOT for those with high expectations in their accommodation's and peace. It is nestled between the Hilton and another small and rambunctious hotel / motel: The Tropi-Cay. If you just seek fun times and drinking then here's the spot... IF, by some odd chance you check in without a drive-by ( like we did ) just don't expect much.

Not Bad

My room was ready when I got there. I upgraded to ocean view with no problem. The room is definitely not luxury. It was acceptable. The bed was made every day and the towels were replaced too. The bathroom smelled a little bit like urine and the carpet was very old and dirty. I saw a roach. However, the location is great and it seemed safe. The pool water was very cold. I will not stay here again, but if you are staying for a few days it really is not that bad. I was dreaming the whole time of a time when I could buy the place and update it - I would make a fortune. It is in the middle of everything.

A nightmare

The hotel from the entrance door, it's was dirty. The hotel bathroom door was falling apart. The front door of the "hotel room" was disgusting. The carpet was scary dirty , I wore flip flops the whole time. Scared I might catch some fungus from those dirty carpets. There were ants on the headboards, closets, and bathroom. U could leave a drink on the night stand because there would be a swarm of them. My mom was scared the ants would crawl in her ears when sleeping. The front office said they would come fumigate, they did not care , did not fumigate. Absolute worst hotel, it was $100 per night, rip off!!!!
