Recent guest reviews

I enjoy my stay the staff nice the hotel was clean.

Pros great price, breakfast was good , ac kept room nice and cold, had a working ice machine, had nice tv with cable and the clock on night table had sub port for charging devices. Cons Carpet In my room was dirty, hotel has a funky nasty smell like cigarette smoke, cant close the window curtain, top comforter was dirty, room smelled weird like dirty rug and the area is kinda in the ghetto

For the price I paid I was so disappointed. The hotel smells and look old. The elevator really??? When I got to my room all I could do was roll my eyes just as bad. The best thing was the breakfast and I would advice the staff to not talk about the guest cause they don't know who is sitting in the lobby.

The second floor smell like cigarette and the run on the floor was dirty

Everything was ok but hotel could use some physical plant upgrades. Also, breakfast service was spotty and food was not restocked as it ran out from a large crowd. Staff were great for the most part.

The location was really good and the staff was very pleasant. The hotel needs renovation badly also people were allowed to have dogs. The carpet was disgusting the bathroom had mold. I would not stay there again no matter how convenient the location is. I will try someone else. if you enforced more rules it would require people to take care the place better or go stay some where else

The hotel room was dirty and not in a good location. I was also in a smoking room when I requested a non-smoking room. I don't think I will be staying here again.

I guess for the price and the purpose of my trip this was a good choice. I was travelling alone and was out most of the day and came back to have a good relaxing night sleep. Parking spaces are good. Nice big comfty bed. Overall the room was pretty clean and good in size. Just make sure you order a non smoking room. The smoking rooms are already baked with smoke (more than other hotels). Even for me who occasionally smoke that was too much, had to ask for a room change immediately. Staff is very nice and efficient. What's not so good: breakfast, very common. I know its a budget hotel, but I have stayed in other similar places with a better continental BF, I mean at least scrambled eggs will do.. I just had mine at the Dunkin Donuts down the street. Not recommended if you are travelling with kids and family, for family vacations, there not many amenities for that.. Air conditioning is very noise (those individual units with manual control) must be very old, but it works and you get used to it. Overall, I recommend this hotel for a short, budget stay if you're traveling alone on business in the area.

Very comfy bed n clean room. Great value. Good location

It was nice. Would have liked to have a microwave and fridge for convenience. Comfortable and clean.

The bed was very comfortable and we could have slept longer than check out time. We were there for just one night after needing to stay in the Fort Lauderdale area overnight. It was great that I could book a room with a king sized bed for that very night at a good price. However, there were a few cockroaches in the hallway and near my room's door. I didn't see any bugs in the room besides at the door. That was unfortunate but we still slept well. It's an OK hotel to sleep in for the night. Not much going for it though.

There were three of us, three senior citizens, but the original room assignment was to a room with one huge bed. The hotel tried to accommodate us by moving us to a room with two beds which was more comfortable but they could not provide us with a roll-away so two of us had to sleep in the same bed. Other than that, we had a pleasant stay. Thank you.

Friendly staff. Breakfast is always good. Room was clean. Air conditioner was SUPER efficeint (we turned it off when we got there and didn't turn it back on again).

The outside of the hotel was very nice. The lobby was clean but, that is where it ended. We got on the elevator to our floor and then things changed when the door opened again. It was nasty. The smell and smoke of pot about made our eyes water. There were for a better word ladies of the evening hanging out in the hall. And they came and went ALL night. Needless to say we will NOT be staying there again.

The staff at the hotel was friendly and the room was comfortable.

All TV channels were not working. WIFI was really slow. Room was very clean. Staff was great. Overall good place to stay.

Bad tv reception no microwave no fridge very clean and cold nice hot showers

Great place for a quick weekend trip! Staff were very helpful

Room was not ready at check in time. Carpets need a cleaning, dogs barking.

Room was clean. It was nice to watch actual HD on a HD tv!! Would definetly stay again if I had a 1 nighter trip again to fort lauderdale.
