Ramada Plaza Fort Lauderdale

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

the rooms need to be remodeled, as they look quite old and dirty, But for the price is not bad, includes breakfast buffet and is very close to the airport fll

Convenient central location, easy parking. Basic room - good internet connection and comfortable bed, but no refrigerator or microwave. Generally clean however mold on bathroom floor tile grout. On-site facilities nice, and upgraded breakfast selections. Front desk staff performance slow and unenthusiastic. Unfortunately, water dripping on to the back of the room AC unit from upper floors created too much noise. Staff moved me to another room (upgraded with great view of the pool area) but same problem so I had to check out early. I have stayed there twice before with no problem. An employee told me “it is only bad during the summer especially when there is a lot of rain”.

I booked this because it was relatively cheap. When I tried to check in the person at the desk barely gave me the time of day for 5 minutes. There were a number of guests (I hope) loitering around the parking lot and lobby just staring at all the newcomers. It was uncomfortable. The room was acceptably clean. If you're looking for more than just an economical place to rest your head, look elsewhere.

this hotel is ok. its close to a club we like to attend so we can walk there and back. its quite old and a bit musty. but there is free breakfast plenty of parking and a decent value for the price

This experience was not good. As you can see Orbitz, I travel the country and have not done a bad review all year. This hotel was bad. One of the Elevatiors was out, my key cards kept losing memeory and it was a long walk back to front desk. The staff when you talked to them would engage other people in a conversation and not give you there undivided attention. The manager called me and I called him back but then he never called me back. Parking was absolutely awful and I had to park far in the back almost every night and the back side door would not open so I had to take a long walk with heavy bags every night to the front then take the long walk to my room. You can only imagine when me key didn't work how I went nuts. The only thing that was good was a server in the restaurant. He was good at what he does. I deserve a full refund for all 7 days I was there.

Ok to spend a night or 2 Internet is hella slow Gym has 3 machines and 1 is broken

Breakfast is not free. WIFI is slow. Rooms do not include microwave or refrigerator. Absolutely cannot check in until 3pm. Price for one night was $75. Not worth it. Cost $45 with "Free" Holiday cruise line. Still not worth it.

It was ok nice size room ok mattress I prefer memory foam but cool place overall

The soda machine upstairs is broken, without a sign. The Tiki bar is very expensive compared to local bars in the area. The breakfast buffet did not have many options. For a Ramada, very disappointing.

Rude staff, old dirty rooms, no parking. I wouldn't pay 20$ a night to stay here again, much less the 125 they charge.

Room smelled musty. Bathroom had no counter or shelf to put things.

Found worm and cockroach in room. Daughters freaked out. Not staying anymore.

Well run motel. Staff were helpful and accommodating.

Never again. It looks nice and all that but it's not true. There was bed bugs in the room. When I went to the front desk and showed him the pictures the guy told me in a little laugh I've seen worst. My whole arms n body got bite marks.unfortunetly I realized that too late now I am left with the aftermath. Than they moved me to another room on the 5th floor. The 2nd floor I was in housekeeping was disgusting. I threw my towels on the floor and they just picked it up n put it on the tv stand. I could go on and on. Stay away go next door to la quinta or extended stay for a little bit more money.

Do not stay there point blank period and they will not give you a refund it's not worth it

My service was great and the staff was friendly and helpful the hotel was clean outside and inside the rooms they had bre a k fast that was included and a restaurant and bar at the hotel it was an awesome place to relax and unwind..

My experience was horrific. I was really freaked out..u go to a hotel u r expecting everything to be white and beautiful and fresh, well thats what im use to. The place was clean and together but the bathroom seem creepy because there are black stuff in the corners of the tub, the the pipes rusty and the sink seemed stained. The room had roaches , the carpet had mold looking stuff and the place smells highly of mold. Couldnt sleep had to report it to book.com the agent got me a different room at around after 12am. Which was similar but better. Could wait for morning i checked out 4hrs early..

The staff was really nice but the hotel I wouldn't stay in again. Wifi service didn't work, there was 11 channels on the tv. Breakfast Buffet was cold and barely edible. The water in the room was yellow.

I enjoyed free breakfast and the service. We were traveling through counties it was nice to have a pool, jacuzzi, spa and bar..
