Holiday Inn Express & Suites Fort Lauderdale Airport South

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

There was no water in the hotel for almost our whole stay, I mean zero water. We got off of a 12 hour flight with a desire to take a shower and we're unable to until the next morning. Finally the next morning the water was on again with a lackluster amount of pressure which could be compared to showering under a light drizzle. Regardless of the reason for the abscence of water, the real issues lies in the fact that no one informed us of water issues upon arrival, no one announced a reason during, and no one did anything about it after.

We stayed at this hotel in order to visit the Hard Rock Casino, which is close by. Great experience.

The front desk person quickly admitted me even though it was 1:00 a.m. due to a late plane. I got to bed quickly. Yea!

rooms are very good and comforting for the price we really enjoyed the stay

We stayed one night on a stopover to other points in Florida and were pleased with the comfort and friendly service. Very clean, spacious room, comfortable bed, full breakfast. Especially liked having the Kerurig coffee machine.

We needed one night to stay before our cruise vacation. It was the perfect location and the service was wonderful.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooom was clean and comfortable. We found the local restaurants suggested by staff to be quite good.

We needed a place to stay the night before our cruise and wanted something that was cheap and offered free airport shuttle service. The only thing I have good to say about this place is it was cheap and did offer a free shuttle. Check in was fast and easy though we had to go back twice because our room key was not working. The room was semi-clean but dated. The downfall of the room was that it faced the road and the weather stripping on the door was go, so much so I could stick fingers to the outside. Needless to say we heard EVERYTHING that went on outside be it people, cars, planes, dogs, whatever. It was like sleeping with the windows open. In the morning they offered a free breakfast but found almost nothing there. Even first thing in the morning they had one oatmeal and NO hot water. You have to sign up for a time slot on the shuttle and they also messed that up. Might have been something minor but there were people in a panic about missing their plane and/or cruise ship. Staff was nice and we did not have time to check out the pool but we will not be staying here again. They say you get what you pay for but we have stayed at hotels just as cheap and had way better experiences.

Stayed for one night. Room was clean and included breakfast was good. Bed was comfortable.

Nice, new, friendly staff, clean rooms, can't ask for much better.

Very comfortable and clean. Very close to FLL. I highly recommend it.

Incredibly friendly & knowledgable staff, front desk had great dinner recommendations. Perfect place to stay for biz or stop for a night on your way to the keys. 10 min from airport w/ a free shuttle.

A nice new place (March 2014), neat, clean and very helpful staff who were eager to please.

I was told too many lies about this hotel. There was a restaurant next door.....WRONG! The closest restaurant was in another hotel about 6-7 miles away. Holiday inn did provide transportation to that location but I'm sure they received a "kick-back" . The food was just average and extremely over priced. We were also told the hotel would provide airport pick up service but they never showed even after two phone calls. We wound up taking a cab but yet somehow we were charged for that service. We complained but no staff member knew what to do. Overall, it was a terrible experience and not even close to being worth the ridiculoust price they charged for one night. the food was just average and WAY

Trains trains trains. Good thing we were there for only one night. Close to airport was what drew us. Road construction made getting to the airport difficult. Will stay again if flying into FLL. Parking for check in was a bit difficult.

We spent one night here prior to leaving early from the airport. Great continental breakfast included with the room. Shuttle driver was super helpful and great.

this hotel was very new and you could tell that they want to keep it that way.very clean!! free shuttle to airport was helpful.very nice room and bed.had a good breakfast for free.only downfall was that there was hardly anything to eat except a couple local restaurants.everything else was a very long walk but this hotel was close to airport!
