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.

Good place to go

The hotel is very good located, the pool requires maintenance, Bath in the room is too small but it works, the bed and the rest of the room is quite nice. The beach is excellent and has a good shower, not nice that they rent the chairs at the beach In general it is acceptable for the price paid

On a budget

The hotel was great for being on somewhat of a budget. The rooms were clean and so was the hotel -the hallways needed an update more than anything they seemed outdated and gave a bad impression, so the rooms were actually a nice surprise after that. There are plenty of lounge chairs out by the pool and tiki bar but the nicer ones with umbrellas and anything on the beach had to be rented. The staff was great and super friendly. You can't beat the location, right on the beach and a $5 cab ride from a bunch of restaurant/bars

could have been better

this hotel i would have to say could have been a whole lot better for the locacation, the only upgrade was the tv. other then that the room was very dated the appliances look like they had been there 20years i was very disatisfied with the rooms. and not to mention there was a limit on the towels that they give you. also they didin't even give you real soap they gave you face soap? the only thing i was pleased with was both the hotel and transportation staff they were all excellent and the view you couldn't beat other then that i would not stay agian.

That will be $25 to sit in the chair

The location is the draw. A beach front location on the ocean is wonderful but be prepared to pay for everything else. Nothing is included with the room other than access to the beach, not parking, breakfast, or even the use of lounge chairs on or near the beach.

Spring vacation

We arrived after a long day of traveling and were pleasantly surprised! The staff was helpful, the room was super and we had a great view of the ocean! We were able to sit on the balcony, listen to the waves and relax for our first night away. The room was clean, the beach was easily accessible, the fitness room had convenient hours..it was definitely worth the money.
