I have stayed there and they were excellent. But this last time, I told them that I would like to checkout at 12 pm as always but the guy at the reception was cold and said they might charge me for that. I said you do that and I will never come back and he ignored me after that. At 11 am a lady from the reception knocked on the door and opened it and entered the room right away without a second of waiting even though I had the ‘not disturb’ sign on the door. I found that extremely disturbing.

Quiet spot to relax. Walking distance to restaurants and the beach

Best value by the beach, friendly staff members. This is my new place to stay when in Fort Lauderdale

My third stay and gets better each time :) very friendly staff, modern, clean, spacious bedroom, close to the beach

Small hotel near beach and close to family that live in the area. Can walk back to hotel from their home. Great price.

The staff is very friendly. The grounds are well maintained. The room was clean. My room included a king bed, mini refrigerator, Keurig and microwave.

The hotel is an older hotel, but is well kept with current furnishings. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool is heated and was never packed. FREE PARKING without all the extra fees. The beach is less than 5 minutes away and the hotel provided towels and beach chairs for use. Would definitely stay there again

Very friendly staff!!! Nice, clean rooms. Had a great stay.

Just a bed and a bathroom near the beach. Not enought light in the room. You can see everywhere that it was an old hotel with some new details. The quality of the room was very bad

Easy to find. Reasonable price. Well maintained grounds, parking and rooms with 2 pools on property. Upgraded. Only a few minor glitches, that are: small bathroom that can be fixed by removing closet; no stopper in sink for shaving and no fan in bathroom. Overall excellent. Left room attendant a tip. Would gladly return.

The hotel was nice and clean and had a very good location, but our room had a very small bathroom. When it was remodeled they left more room in the closet than was necessary and as a result the side of the toilet was about one inch from wall. I have no idea if other rooms had the same issue, but I think booking into the main building would be preferable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. There are pools both in the main building and the patio area behind. Very reasonable and only 1 block from Ft Lauderdale beach and .2 mi from places to eat.

This is a small, old hotel on Lauderdale beach, its probably been there a long time. It was easy to find, and easy to park. The room was dirty, there was hair hanging from the shower head, dirt on the sofas, unidentified matter smeared on the door jams and walls. The house keeping could be improved greatly!

Fast check in, cute room design, clean and right by the beach, easy and free parking! I would stay there again.

Front desk was friendly and courteous. Bed were comfortable. And close by to the beach

Cute quaint hotel close to the strip of beach, bars & restaurants. Easy to walk to everything.

The only positive about our stay was the comfortable bed and close location to the beach. The pictures online were not of our room and we did not have the things that were promised. Very loud, small rooms, hardly any amenities. The rooms were not properly lit with no closet to hang any clothes. Asked for towels several time and was told they were being laundered. Will not stay here again.

This is a nice affordable option close to the beach. The rooms have been updated and the beds are comfortable.

Small rooms, but nice facility and only a block away from the beach. Seemed to be in an openly gay and friendly neighborhood.

This hotel is in a perfect location near Fort Lauderdale Beach. Walking distance to everything. It is small, but has easy parking and a small pool for just a few rooms. The rooms are very modern looking and comfortable. Our king size bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get out of it. Very nice hotel, and we would definitely stay here again.

Just ok Clean for the most part, fairly dated. Lack of daily service one day of my stay. Terrible lowflow shower pressure. My last night I had small bugs flying around, not sure if they were mosquitoes or not. The pool was empty, they did tell me they had another pool at another property I could use. Not wanting to walk to another propery, guess I'm lazy or spoiled. No Ethernet connection for computer, wifi yes. No convenient outlets on only area to use as a desk, forced to use computer on the bed. Also I made mention that I only had two hangers, and that the rod was broken, nothing was done about it. Twice I had to have both key cards re-programed during my 1 week stay Now on the upside I did ask if they had a microwave I could use, as I was staying a week. They did bring me one, however the turntable in it was broken, LOL, but it did heat so that was a bonus. Location is convenient if you want to walk to the beach. Staff friendly, still only a 3 in my book.

Dear Mehmet, we are sorry that there was a misunderstanding about your check out time. We have several new Front Desk agents and they are not fully trained yet and are not aware that we have guest that need a little more time to check out. We sincerely apologize about that. Sometimes the the DO NOT DISTURB signs flies of the handle due to the wind blowing and the Cleaning attends are not sure if a guest left or not . I am so sorry please accept my apology for these mishaps. We are glad for you being so honest and it will definitely make sure that we are making the staff members aware of these incidents. Thank you for being our guest , please come back and visit us again. I promise we make it a better one. Sincerely,
