Ramada Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great place Nice pool Clean room. Nice bar. Good price. Very pleased

After traveling all day a 45 minute wait for the shuttle service was not a good start. The girl at the front desk was less than helpful when we inquired about transportation to the cruise ship in terms morning. Despite the fact that we had reservations months in advance, our room was upstairs in the farthest corner of the property with luggage for a two week cruise. Literally everything about the property was worn and dirty. The elevator needed to be hosed out it was so dirty. Handrails, doorknobs, everything that could be touched by human hands were dirty. I'm surprised the Tiki Bar has not been shut down by the Health Department. It was filthy.

I feel for the price, especially for a Ramada Inn of this lower quality was not a good value. The hotel is dated and not what I expect of a Ramada Inn. The location is very close to both the airport and cruise port so it can charge a high price based on location, but please, invest some of the capital in quality upgrades. While the location is good for airport and cruise ship transport, there are only two options for evening eating. OK that's not so bad, but a factor worth mentioning. Have transportation included from the airport and the next day to the cruise port is a plus. In summary, the aging issue needing renovations is my issue based on price paid.

There is nothing nearby to do, but they offer shuttle service if you are prepared to wait about 60 minutes (NOT 30 minutes as they will tell you). Pick up by KSA at Airport or other locations is VERY disappointing and unreliable. Hotel rooms (carpets) need more renovations but beds and furnishings are good. Restaurant has the same menu and limited breakfast selection.

Rooms were nice, loved the pool area, great food. Have a room again in March 2017.

Pool area was nice. Breakfast was good. Staff was courteous.

Excellent facility for flying in the night before a cruise. We were very please with pick up at the airport as well as delivery to the cruise terminal. Will recommend the Ramada to everyone we know and meet while cruising. JUst the hassle free commute from the airport and to the ship made this stay well worth it Thank you

Hotel room could be remodelled for the price of it. Staff was ok but could be more out going , to nonchalant . Job did not seem to important for most of them . Shuttle driver with big bus and trailer on the morning of our transfer to port Everglades seemed to be tired or tipsy and he had a bottle of rum behind his seat , he was driving and his eyes were closing an driving crooked . Please look into it an be vigilant but also caring . Price of room was too high for quality .

Got very sick from the food served for breakfast at the hotel. Pretty sure it was bad sausage.

Had to have the bed remaid mattress protector was missing, sheets needed to be changed, bathroom wall was falling off by rusty tub, room was very musty, staff should be trained on how to clean a room. Breakfast wasn't on until 7 am had to be gone by then.

Visited Ft. Lauderdale for 4 days. Stayed at the Ramada. It was very convenient to the places I visited. It was nice, quiet, clean rooms.

We were picked up by the hotel free shuttle from Ft. Lauderdale airport. We were greated by staff when we arrived at the hotel. Free breakfast was provided which was good. Room was clean. We were provided free shuttle service to the cruise port to go on our cruise. Was a great place to stay

The shuttle service was prompt, the customer service was great, if your flight leaves before their shuttle service runs they will call a taxi for you and it was 20 bucks to the airport with no traffic and thats including tip! They have a resturant if your hungry which serves great food and no need to tip cause they charge 15% gratuity. Tiki bar was great while sitting next to the pool! It was quiet! Overall just a nice place to stay for the price! Only problem is, no gas station for a snack close by and the only REAL resturant is a BBQ place down the street.

Old but nice, ciean. Near port. Would stay there again.

The hotel was dated and kinda smelly, if I would've known to pay $10 more I would have to stay at a better hotel!

Hotel under renovation, which made for a better rate for a one night stay. Tiki bar by the pool and a free breakfast in the morning. Good value for the price.

Clean comfortable near the airport had a great stay

Hotel was undergoing renovations to the lobby and there was construction all around the property that had large power equipment starting before 8a. This aside, the hotel was older but in good condition. The beds were very clean and comfortable, which was nice but the bathroom area was definitely very old. I could look past it if there was not a rust stain underneath the faucet in the white tub. The staff was VERY nice and accommodating to me and I enjoyed the breakfast that was included with the price. Be prepared to pay for bottled water or soda if that is your thing early in the morning. Another nice convenience was the proximity to the marina at the end of the side road next to the hotel which has a bar and restaurant which was very nice and reasonably priced. All in all, it was a nice experience given the price point of this hotel.

The only issue I will have to mention, was the shower. It was clogged and took a shower was not pleasant.

We booked this last minute due to a flight change. I booked a superior room. If that was superior I would hate to see standard. The rug was musty as we walked in with some staining. The grout in the shower had mildew and the tile was in much need of updating. The cold water would not turn on and because it was so late and we were exhausted we ended up just dealing with the issue. The sheets appeared clean though they only had makeshift pillows. To make a long story short we were out of there by 4 a.m. for out flight and it served its purpose. It was better than the airport.
