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.

Wonderful Getaway

We had a wonderful stay at the Ocean Sky Resort which is located on the beach. The room/bathroom were very clean. Sheets were snow white and crisp. The room was equipped with a coffee pot and frig which came in handy. We asked to move to another room the next day because the a/c unit was right below us and they were quick to accommodate us. We were able to view the ocean from our balcony. The staff were very friendly. The only downfall is that parking is $15.00 per day, but well worth if as they had a valet service. I recommend this hotel for family and couples.

Ft Lauderdale Fun

The hotel is in a GREAT location!! Directly on the beach! The room was spacious and nicer than I expected considering the age of the hotel everything was modern & comfortable. It cost $20/day to rent 2 chairs and an umbrella, additional $10 if we would have gotten cushions. The first 2 days the crowd was light but the next 2 days the beach was very crowded. There is a grocery store, beverage store as well as shops and places to eat all within a short distance.

Okay

The hotel was clean with a great beach location. However we were surprised to learn we would have to rent chairs if we wanted to sit on the beach. The pool was very nice and a ready supply of pool towels was always available. The prices in the bar and restaurant were quite high.

Nice location

Perfect location with nice amenities. Mattress was old and not overly comfortable. Walls are pretty thin as you could hear other voices and t.v.s Beautiful views of the ocean and pleasant bar tender at their tiki bar.
