A posotive note:The woman who ran the front desk was very pleasant and professional. Aside from that we had the worst stay we have ever booked anywhere in Ft. Lauderdale. Every night there were people screaming until around 1 if not 2 am. A few nights before we left someone was pounding on the door next to us screaming obscenities yelling something about heroine on and off going back to their room for almost 3 hours. There was so much garbage at the front entrance you literally had to step over it to get out onto the sidewalk. There were other things like items at the bottom of the pool that I didn't feel comfortable getting in to use so we just didn't. It was just a very disappointing experience and there were a few times I definitely didn't feel safe!!

Awful property! Obvious escort and drug dealings going on. Most patrons besides the illegal activities going on were foreign speaking. They were constantly moving vehicles, unsupervised children running all over until well after midnight and women doing laundry inside the rooms and hanging wet clothes over all the railings. Trash all around the pool and common areas. We did not feel safe on this property.

My college friends and I stayed here for Spring Break and absolutely loved the place! All of the staff were so friendly and accommodating and the service was 10/10. The beds were also incredibly comfortable and so clean everyday, and the location was great for everything we wanted to do. We were within easy access of the beach, places to eat, and grocery stores/gas stations. 100/100 experience.

it was fun

It was a pretty decent stay. Nice pool and courtyard area.. wonderful bed

You get what you pay. Last day, they were kicking me out since 9am, when check out was supposed to be at 11am. Housekeeping came to my room 3 times.

It was close to the beach. The staff was rude and unprofessional

We loved the property and the staff! The front desk and housekeeping staff were so kind and accommodating. The beach access was right across the street and easy to get to. We will definitely stay here again when we return to LBTS...

Nice place for the money, convenient location Some guest were questionable.

You get what you pay for I guess. It wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t great. My room was never cleaned 1 time while I was there. The small bath towels were like sand paper. The view I had from the room was the elevator door with a over flowing garbage can. The staff was friendly though.

Great people room are big cleaning is great when you call they come

Ac sucked was very slow and not strong enough. But overall okay.

I checked in went to my room and saw three COCKROACHES. I’ve now been attempting to receive my refund for ONE month. The email address of their website doesn’t work.

I loved the location and the atmosphere. It was a very pleasant stay.

found a roach within 30 seconds of being there. slow service. ended up going to ocean sky across the street. never again.

The beach is few minutes walking from the hotel. The staff was friendly and the access to the beach was easy through their partner hotel that is a beachfront property just across the street. They had no breakfast included but in the morning they had coffee on the second floor. Parking is very limited but I arrived at 9:00 PM and found what it looks like the last empty spot. No mold smell in the room, hot water came out the shower fast, and there was no noise. I enjoyed my stay and I would come back to this hotel.

Property has to add some TLC to rooms. Problem with HOT water in the shower and Size of the single room. First have of week in King room was much better with quality and size.

The property is quiet and low key. Everything is good from the rooms to the office Worker that made you feel like Family
