Recent guest reviews

Booked this hotel as I landed at FLL at 2am needed a place to sleep for a few hours before going to the keys. The room was terrible not clean, and the mattress had holes in it with springs coming out by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

We stay here often. This last trip, we can see that they upgraded their rooms. It looks fantastic! They also have security around. The breakfast is always good. We usually get the waffle, juice, and pastry. My daughter enjoyed a boiled egg too. Lots of pillows on the beds and a great nights sleep. Publix and the Dollar tree was across the street which helped us to plan for a surprise birthday for my mom. The staff was fantastic and communicates well with each other. We booked a suite the next night as a surprise for my mom and we check the next morning and they said their aware and working on getting our room ready early, Wow! The pool was great. We were the only ones down there so it felt private. What a wonderful experience. I recommend you stay. Their rates are reasonable, you get free breakfast, refrig/microwave is in the room, grocery store right across the street, the staff is very pleasant, and you get a good night’s sleep. What more can you ask for?

Location is fine if you there for a short stopover, but motel is very old and in need of upgrading. Staff was great, but room was very dated. Air Conditioner was a mess, made noises all night and did not cool room. Wound up opening window (which was not easy to do). Overall, they need to spend some money to update.

Checked in,asked if it was my first time and welcomed me.....Gave me the worst room ever,upon entering the room was stink with dirty carpet and a full size bed instead of a king...bathroom tub was backing up with water and tv remote not working, with everything adding up decided to go back to front desk to see if there were anything better....the same lady smile and try to convinced me it's a queen bed,but I need king I said. ..then ask if I would like to change......yes of course I said then I exchanged key for a more comfortable room......much better but can't understand y I was offered that room in the first place for a first time guest.Definitely will think twice before staying there again if ever. :(

It was a great, cheap place to stay. Not the best located, but we had a car and it made it easy. Took about 20 minutes to get to the airport with morning traffic. But it's a great hotel, clean, friendly staff. We'd definitely stay again!

I have stayed twice at this hotel and it's been a pleasure and great experience . Staff is friendly rooms are clean. There's privacy no noise . Located within stores gas stations and restaurants .

I was let down because I previously stayed in New Orleans LA Quinta and expected more. Would only recommend foe the proce.

Price gouging unleashed! Needed to lay my head down for a few hours before continuing a trip. Spring break was in full swing and so were the prices here, up, up and up. This chain has always provided just the minimal in all areas of service and cleanliness. However this time around the front desk provided extra help in getting my airline tickets squared away something I could have done on my own if the hotel wifi had been working :) Avoid if possible

The hotel is quite convenient, but located far from the city center and from the beaches. The price is very reasonable and affordable, especially when traveling by car.

The breakfast is really good the rooms are really clean I like this. However I did not like how the other guests active

Great stay real nice people great breakfast great location real nice and fun place

Staff very nice and helpful. Room was reasonably clean but air conditioning was loud and hallway and elevator smelled of cigarette smoke.

Is an average hotel with covenant location to everything.

When we arrived at the hotel everything was perfect, the staff was very nice, we checked in, and we went to our room, room was very neat and clean, free breakfast served in the morning, i enjoyed my stay there, hope one day i will travel again to FLL and i will choose it because it was very affordable.

hotel's cigarett odor was too strong and the carpet was to dirty. front dest was not polite, too busy talking on the phone. Overall, it was not pleasant experience. I would not go to this hotel again. this time i did not have any other choice.

The hotel was average, not overly clean in the bathroom, but it served its purpose. Neighborhood was a little on the sketchy side. Unless you're just looking for cereal, waffle, fruit, you might want to eat breakfast out. It met our basic needs.

The carpet was filthy. Forgot to pack slippers and my feet were gross from walking barefoot in the room. Breakfast was extremely limited. Not what I expected from what I had been led to expect from friend who had stayed at this chain before. Pool was just gross, pool chairs filthy, and towel had strange stains, I hate to think what they were.

This was last night stop off before airport. We thought we had searched out a location close to Ft. Lauderdale airport through the travel service site, but this was not especially close. Traffic was light Saturday morning, so reached airport in less than 30 mins. This is a reasonable hotel option for those on a budget.

Room was not ready by check in time and there were several folks waiting to check in. There was no sense of urgency by the staff to remedy the problem.

Very Disorganized staff and poor customer service!
