The Staff was excellent, walking distance to everything: beach, water sports, dining. The room was clean, comfy bed. Nothing to complaint.

We had a pleasant stay there. It's very convenient. Close to the major beach and restaurants. The property is a little old and bathroom is a little outdated. But the ceiling and floor makes the room ok for staying. Consider its location and pool and free parking, it's a pretty good deal overall.

Great location, just a block from the beach and close to restaurants. Clean and comfortable room. Will stay again on next beach visit.

My recent stay at Fortuna Hotel was the first week in March 2022. The room was very clean and all was in good working order. The staff was very courteous and promptly addressed any questions or issues that I had. The location of the hotel, one block from the beach, was quiet and appeared to be very safe. One of the major attractions for me was the short 10 minute walk to the restaurants and music. This hotel is a good value for what you pay. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel and plan to return on my next visit to Fort Lauderdale.

Nice place!

Before checking in to a long-reserved resort vacation, I needed a nearby place for one night, and this was perfect. It was New Years Eve, and I appreciated the easy walk to beachside restaurants. The unit was clean and comfortable and had just what I needed, no more and no less. I would definitely return.

Don’t let the pictures fool you .. not at all like what you see online .. this property is a bit run down. The a/c unit was directly in front of the bed - so whoever laid on that side was freezing with air blowing non stop. Bathroom is old and no counter space. No blackout curtains and bath towels were kids size. Do not recommend

On my first day of vacation I was awaken early to move my car because staff needed to paint. Then on my fiance birthday 7/4 630am, we came in from hanging out. So we were laughing and talking about our night. I left something in the car and propt the door open. 1 staff came out screaming whats going on; i was really confused because we werent that loud. Also our room is directly next door to the office in which we could hear everything they were doing as well. Then comes along screaming and pointing in my face i found it to be very rude and disrespectful. They were so mean and rude we couldnt even eat our food we were preparing. This made the rest of the stay very uncomfortable. When i spoke to the manager later that day she refused to give me the corparate infomation to report this treatment. She said we could live if we wanted, but because of the holiday my fiance and i couldnt find anything in the area. We worked so hard to save for the vacation that is was really a slap in the face to be treated like children. Lastly, we are very respectable, honest, and law abiding citzens. So to be treated like this and waste food and be interuppted and disrespected is enough to file a law suit. I could not find corporate infomation anywhere.

I loved how short the distance was to the beach. Very nice restaurants around and the environment was so relaxing

Everyone so so nice and helpful! Really enjoyed my stay!

The staff was super friendly and accommodating. We arrived 4 hours early and we were able to check in easily with no hassle or extra charge. All employees were wearing masks at all times and there was hand sanitizer available everywhere. The beds were super comfortable and the pools were very clean. I’ve already recommended this location to others! We will be back!

Everything about the property is old and seedy. There was a vagrant (it's near the beach and there are lots of homeless people) sitting in the pool area (which is right off the street and unprotected).

The hotel is in a great location and an amazing boutique hotel!!! Staff is beyond friendly and attended to ever need and very accommodating! Extra care during the pandemic! Will definitely add to Mylar of return to properties

This hotel is so quaint and cute. Well renovated and the beach is literally across the street. The concierge Ilona was phenomenal and so accommodating it’s unreal. Ask for her!!! I will definitely be back!!

The place was excellent! The stuff was very friendly and helpful to all our requests. The room was very clean as well as the territory of the hotel.

Basically an old motel that had did a cheap remodel. Looks good in pictures but no when you arrive. 1 block to the beach and intercoastal. Friendly staff.

Dear guests, We are sorry that our property wasn't to your liking and our hotel was not for you. We wished you would have let us know about the issues you endured during your stay in the room. We could have showed you the settings of the AC, and that we have roll down blinds in the room to darken the room. We hope you still enjoyed your stay and if decide to come back to the Fort Lauderdale beach area to look at our other sister properties that can offer you the room type that is more to your liking. Kind regards,
