Location is outstanding, especially for the price. Lots of renovation going on and not much in the way of amenities, but interiors are modern, sleek, simple and clean.

Nice place located close to the beach, very clean and friendly staff.

Great Location and the snacks were a nice added touch to not have to leave your room.

Not even worth my time to respond. Awful! Awful! Awful!

Pros -The staff here is wonderful! They speak very little English, but are very nice and accommodating in every way -Great location right near the beach -B-fast that consists of juice, milk, cereal, granola bars and canned fruit -Great price! -The staff checked us in at 11:30 am which was great! Cons -Mind you this is a 2.5 star hotel, so it won't be perfect! -The hotel condition is not perfect - rust, scrapes, tears, cob webs, bugs and other flaws will be seen inside and outside your hotel room -We had dead cockroaches in our opened drinks the next day - however, this is Florida! This will happen if any crumbs/food/ drinks water are left out (our mistake!) -The AC machine is loud if that bothers you, it did not bother us. If you're looking for a step above with better amenities and cleanliness then this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay and don't mind imperfections then stay here!

love the boutique hotel area. beautiful property and room. walk to beach and shops/ restaurants . will return again ""

Shower was not hot nor has pressure, walls falling apart, no parking (got a $40 ticket because the staff said parking was okay THEN paid $40 to park overnight), no breakfast, no pool, thin walls, disgusting room, extremely uncomfortable hard bed, cockroaches, toilet doesn't flush...REALLY bad hotel....

Paper thin floors, don’t stay on first floor. No water pressure. “Free parking” is a lie. And no response from hotel when asked where I could find overnight parking that I could pay for.

The location is extremely close to the beach. It is also centrally located to a lot of restaurants.

Very cute but old. Water was kind of colored in the shower and no pressure Great location to walk to dinner and some shops. We just stayed one night so was great for that.

Very comfy beds. Convenient location. Close to beach. Friendly staff.

Got to the hotel late to find parking to be an issue. Would be nice to have enough parking for all your guests. Keys left taped to office door which was fine. Room was clean and cold. Room only has ac and no heater. Bed was comfortable but there were stains on the bedspread. Toilet is loose, drain in sink is clogged and pealing paint in bathroom. Not a big deal for me personally considering how close I am to the beach. Overall right for the price

Had a great time staying here the first two nights of my vacation that I came back for the last two also. The location was amazing! Half a block to the beach, one block to Starbucks for morning coffee, and walked to a different amazing restaurant every night. Parking wasn’t a problem for me, but it is limited. It’s a cute boutique hotel and I’ll be back when I’m in town again.

It was a relaxing stay, easy to check in and check out. Staff was really helpful.

There was no parking space as advertised. I had to park tightly beside another car blocking their gate/driveway with end of my car rental stick out to the sidewalk. I was desperate at 1 o’clock in the morning! Otherwise, it’s a nice place.

We were only here for a night (unfortunately!) but it was a great stay! The beds are so comfortable, staff is so nice and friendly and the location is excellent. So happy to have learned about this place for our next trip down to FL!

Excellent location close to the beach. Very affordable for the location. Beds were very comfortable. Will definitely stay there for her next trip to Fort Lauderdale.

Hotel condition was not good Room is not clean, especially shower
