Great for Cruise or Airport

We chose this hotel because we wanted a cheap place to sleep before and after a cruise. It fit the bill for that. We wanted the free shuttle provided from the airport and to the port for the cruise. That worked well for us. I would have liked coffee in the room. There is an attached restaurant that was reasonable with decent food that we used. There were no restaurants nearby so was happy this restaurant was there. Staff was friendly and helpful. Shuttle drivers were great. If I were to take a cruise again, I would stay there. I received savings through Cheap Tickets. I didn't want to spend a lot just for a convenient place to sleep. This was close to airport and cruise port. Was happy to find it through Cheap Tickets. Picnic area with ducks and swimming pool.

The room was clean and bright,, grounds were attractive and well maintained. Staff was polite and attentive to your needs. Well located close to the Airport, or marinas, free shuttle was an nice extra. Bar and restaurant located on premise had good prices and geed food at a modest price.

Comfort is a must :)

The only thing that was missing was continental breakfast. Other than that, let's just say i've stayed on two hotels on the beach since Red Carpet Inn by FLL airport, and they were not as comfortable and clean as this hotel. I'd choose comfort of Red Carpet Inn over false luxury any day. The room was spacious and clean.

needs a major facelift

Staff is really nice, main manager is really rude etc! Water puddles on every sidewalk, slamming noises every morning on roof, trucks roaring out every morning. WiFi is the worst, drops every two min mostly in back and outside rooms. Never can do my internet work in room, weak signal. No ice machine in back top floors. Constant dripping dirty water above all balcony's, on all floors. Stair ways are always dirty. This place needs a major new paint and gutters all around! Even the pool looks 700 years old. Lol

Drive to any other place to eat, food is great here at restaurant, but way over priced. Breakfast is really priced well and consistant. Beer is way to expensive. Drive to winn Dixie.

Good layover if Cruising

Pretty basic motel, stayed there one night prior to a cruise. Excellent for a one night stopover if cruising. Shuttle service provided from airport and to cruise port. Reasonably priced restaurant on site with good food. Prime rib was excellent and breakfast special was very good. Pool was slightly green so I did not use
