satisfactory

The hotel was average, not overly clean in the bathroom, but it served its purpose. Neighborhood was a little on the sketchy side. Unless you're just looking for cereal, waffle, fruit, you might want to eat breakfast out. It met our basic needs.

Dirty and disappointing

The carpet was filthy. Forgot to pack slippers and my feet were gross from walking barefoot in the room. Breakfast was extremely limited. Not what I expected from what I had been led to expect from friend who had stayed at this chain before. Pool was just gross, pool chairs filthy, and towel had strange stains, I hate to think what they were.

Overnight accommodations

This was last night stop off before airport. We thought we had searched out a location close to Ft. Lauderdale airport through the travel service site, but this was not especially close. Traffic was light Saturday morning, so reached airport in less than 30 mins. This is a reasonable hotel option for those on a budget.

Dining tip: In Hotel

There is a grocery store, pharmacy and several restaurants within short walking distance of the hotel. The hotel had very modest, (small, simple) but clean accommodations. Good water pressure in shower. The front desk staff was very friendly and gracious. The AC unit in the single, king, non-smoking room was very noisy.

Poor Management

Room was not ready by check in time and there were several folks waiting to check in. There was no sense of urgency by the staff to remedy the problem.
