If you want to stay near the beach, with rooms spacious enough to call home, the Ocean Sky Hotel Fort Lauderdale fills the bill. The scent of polished wood, tiki canopies and palm trees hangs in the air, and when dusk settles, the hotel lights up in aqua hues, preparing guests for a night of marine-side dancing, or a secluded dip in the outdoor Jacuzzi. Dine in American-Continental style on the sunny brick terrace, or take a long swig of your cocktail before the ocean waves in the tiki bar. Rent out jet skis or scuba equipment nearby for a little extra action on the waves, or retreat to the games room indoors when the air gets cooler.

Neighborhood
This North Ocean Boulevard hotel is flanked by the beach and the Intercoastal Waterway, with the small neighborhood of Lauderdale-by-the-sea to the north and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport (FLL) to the south (12 miles). The Galleria Shopping Mall provides contemporary entertainment amongst the bargain rails, or visitors can take a trip back in time to the stately Bonnet House and Gardens (both under three miles away). Head out into the sea with a dinner-cruise aboard the Jungle Queen to capture the whole of the shoreline with your senses, as well as your camera.
Hints and tips
The hotel's north-facing rooms give shy travelers the quietest stay, while view-seekers will adore the 9th floor.Check out the selection of Mediterranean-inspired restaurants on the fishing pier, or head toward the city center along Commercial Street for favorite grills like Flanigans.

Great Location

This hotel was average but not bad. Great price for where it is on the beach. Grounds were clean, pool great. Little pricey for bar and food on site. And have to rent beach chairs and pay for parking.

Disappointed

Front desk did not greet us when we walked in and allowed themselves to finish goofing off before they acknowledged us standing there. The room was old and smelled like rust. And the valet was under-staffed on a holiday weekend so they had us get our own car and we were still charged for it. Was really looking forward to getting away from the kids for a night and the rooms were way different then they looked on the website. AND it wasn't cheap!

Weekend Getaway

Amazing hotel if you want a simple and affordable getaway. You can avoid the pricey hotel prices with a short 3 minute walk to the supermarket, diner or liquor store. The housekeeper wasn't very helpful and a bit ridiculous but the front desk is helpful. She refused to give us bed sheets because "they were all dirty and in the wash" but we called the front desk and they gave us what we needed. The beach, pool and jacuzzi are all around the same area. We even witnessed a wedding which was beautiful. I definitely recommend.

There is a McDonalds right across the street. Very convenient for a late night or drunk meal.

Can't get any closer to the beach

This hotel is right on the beach...you can't get any closer. Our room was just fine for what we needed. The beach and the water were very clean. The beach wasn't crowded on the weekdays and the weather was perfect! Be prepared to pay $12 per day to park. I think that is a bit pricey. The hotel was fine on the weeknights. By the time Saturday rolled around the place was very full and loud at night. There were very noisy people in the room next door until about 4:00 a.m.
