Stay away

La Quinta hotel on 5070 state road 7 should hire armed security guards. My hotel room had the smell of weed because out side of my room there were people smoking in the hallway. I called the front desk about it but of course, there was no action taken. In front of the hotel at night there were a bunch of people smoking and blasting music and when the security told them to stop.... they simply ignore him. Some of the employees would be walking around cursing and it wasn't professional. Please for your safety, I would advice that you stay away from here.

Excelent hotel

I always stayed here whenever I visit Florida, it is easily accessible to friends and transportation. - bus stops in front of the hotel, which takes me directly to the casinos. Manager and staff are pleaant and very helpful. Price is good and rooms are very comfortable. Only fault breakfast needs more variety

simple, friendly, fun around every corne

While staying in south Florida we went to the Festival Flea market Mall, loved the antique area, Flamingo Gardens, Hallandale Beach, Hollywood's boardwalk, Pompano Park for horses and slots,and daily breakfast at the pool. Had a great meal at Islamorada Fish Company located at 220 Gulf Stream Way in Dania Beach. Use the Attraction maps in the lobby to plan all these great activities. One item to add to the FREE breakfast offerings would be packets of instant oatmeal (only need to add hot water and stir)

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Pick up a map of the area and local attractions and plan your vacation; we also made a wish list at home prior to leaving. We did all of the above and only used $25.00 in gas for four whole days.

Very nice staff, clean rooms

We came to Ft. Lauderdale for a family vacation. This hotel was very nice and clean. The pool area was kept very nice and clean as well. The free breakfast seemed like a perk but they stopped serving at 9am (which is very early for vacationers) and they didn't have that great of a variety. Also our television didn't have great reception and our remote didn't work. We probably wouldn't come here again, because the neighborhood didn't seem to be that safe, but we certainly enjoyed ourselves.
