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 place to get away

I absolutely LOVED staying here, balcony view was fantastic, ocean, pool, jacuzzi all available from dawn to dusk. When they say it's all about location, this is an excellent location to just relax and enjoy the amenities. My vacation was AWESOME, I left feeling relaxed and revived...

Quick mini vacation

My decision to stay here was based on the many positive reviews. This hotel is literally on the beach. Upon my arrival I was upgraded to a better room with a beautiful view of the ocean for no additional charge. The room was clean and somewhat modern . Many stores within walking distance so you don't need a car. If you decide to bring a car it is an additional fee. Overall it was worth it. I would stay here again.

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.

Hotel needs more work

Cleanliness just barely passable. Staff needs some training in cordiality and professionalism. Was suprised to learn of non-optional $10.00 per day valet parking fee. No laundry service, and 2nd floor (coin fed) washers & driers, which need updating. I could go on and on, The location is nice, and as they say, the 3 most important factors in real estate: Location, Location, Location. Would I come back? Probably not.

Stock your in-room mini refrigerator with wine, beer and soda from the Publix, just down the road, across the street.

no real opinion

the location is great! the rooms have been updated since my last visit and were very comfortable. the cleaning staff did a good job. the concierge that works with the hotel were a great help finding restaurants and local attractions. the only bad thing about my stay were the elevators; a little too noisy and malfunctioned several times...

Ocean Sky Hotel Review

Hotel itself is fine. The reason for only 3 stars on the value rating is that it´s expensive to get to from the airport and even more expensive to get to Miami International Airport from the hotel. Also, I thought the price of hotel tours were too expensive for the value to be received.

LOUD CONSTRUCTION!!!!

Flew from Michigan for a few days at the ocean. Was not told of the construction until the next day when I woke up to men on my balcony taking away all of the furniture. Next day the balcony was locked. After being told on the phone that they had no rooms on the other side of the building, I went to the lobby and magically they had one. Early morning loud construction sounds for the next 2 days. Cable TV went out on 2 days. Nice to be on the ocean with pool and hot tub but I went home unrefreshed and tired.
