Stay Away!!!!

First off, all I can say this is by far the worst hotel I have every stay at. The rooms are nothing like the picture’s show. It is a run-down motel. Also, if you are a light sleeper this is not the hotel for you. The hotel has a bar in the middle that has music playing till 2:00am. When you are in your room you can hear everything the walls are paper thin. In addition, if you are looking for customer service this is not the place. Jonathan the front desk agent has the worst people skills I have ever seen. When I called in to discuss my reservation as I had to leave one day early due to my father having a heart attack he hung up on me. TWICE. This man clearly does not value the customer’s that are paying his hourly wage. All I can say is STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!

NIGHTMARE

The hotel is VERY noisy; young people having party the whole nigh. Bugs in bed. Room rate of $172 (two adults, two small kids) was too high compared with the standard.

Great location, but think twice

This hotel is in a PRIME location, right across the beach in famous Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It doesn't get any better than this for places to relax or party! But this hotel was not worth the savings to me. I stayed here because I was attending a wedding at a 4-star near by hotel but wanted to save a few bucks. It was not worth the savings. This hotel was not very nice at all, the on-site bar played VERY LOUD music until 2 or 3 am. Not comfortable beds, ancient construction, and just seemed like management does not care about the state of the property. Do yourself a favor and stay in one of the nicer properties in Ft. Lauderdale, where you will be more comfortable and get a better night's sleep.

Very old!

The kitchen and the bathroom are old, brake and dirty but the position are spectacular, it is very near from the sea. Good the swimmingpool with bar.
