Best Western Ft. Lauderdale - Best Deall!

From check in to check out - a pleasant experience. Extremely courteous staff - interior secluded pool with an evening Tiki Bar away from the traffic of Federal Hwy. - very well maintained older property reminiscent of Florida in the 50's and 60's - room amenities included a microwave and refrigerator in every room - a nice breakfast with scrambled eggs and sausage included - real brewed coffee - 10 min. or less to Ft. Lauderdale beach and dowtown Ft. Lauderdale. A great value in a great centralized location!

Find the best eatery by watching the parking lot's fullness. It's the best way to find the best food. If the "locals" go there, it's THE place to check out! I've never been disappointed with that "tip" in any city, state, or country yet for over 50 years

EVERYTHING and more...

We were picked at the airport the evening we arrived after we called them. The next morning we were given a surprisingly good breakfast, then taken to the port for our cruise. All complimentary. The beds were super comfortable. The room was very clean. The pool area was a nice place to relax. Couldn't have asked for more. All for a super reasonable rate. Across from a small shopping mall. J.

A Room Too Far

Looking for a place close to airport & cruise port. Nine miles of congested traffic. One desk staff person was grumpy on phone prior to stay and cranky when ANYONE asked her a question once we we there. Room was musty and dark

Holiday Getaway

Traveling with a service dog is not an easy task, the hotel staff was extremely helpful about it, which made our stay even better. Very well located and the staff does make sure the place stays clean and their customers are taken care off. Rates can be a bit steep but they make up for it with service and comfort.
