Recent guest reviews

Very late check in times (4:00) in a hotel frequented by guests coming in from cruises which disembark in early a.m. cause much wasted time waiting to check in. Do offer luggage storage though. AC in room too effective- it wouldn’t go higher than 63 degrees no matter setting. Had to turn it off .

Noisy plumbing from unit above or next door when shower use

This was absolutely the worst "hotel" in which we ever stayed. It is not a hotel. It is a motel. The exterior areas were filthy with litter and cigarette butts. When my husband showered in the morning, black dirt poured off his feet. HIs socks were so dirty we threw them away. The staff were able to refund our second night which was good. We went to the buffet b'fast but wouldn't even drink the coffee much less eat any of the meager offerings. Do NOT stay here.

Clean hotel. Rooms are a little small but good for a night's stay for the price.

Mario was very nice and professional and made the check in process easy The location was good

Just needed it for an overnight stay before cruise in the morning. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Let me stay an extra hour since I arrived at midnight. Breakfast was less than continental quality. Hotel is a 3 star so I couldn't expect much about the room. Shower was kind of old and rusting but made the best of it. But if you're on a budget, its nicely located.

I would rate my overall experience as a 2 out of 5 stars. It's an old motel with little to no sound proofing and while the vanity in the bathroom was updated little else has been. When I called for the shuttle, which was the main reason i booked a room I was told it was only available until 4 pm Monday through Thursday and 6 pm Friday through Sunday. I called from the airport at 5:45pm on Friday. I had to get an Uber. The coffee maker in the room didn't work, and my room was mostly clean... i really could go on but I'm sure you get the idea.

Excellent service, employee very nice, close to the beach.

This was a great deal. I'm originally from Ft. Lauderdale, and I never thought I'd be able to be that close to the beach and family for such a fair price. The room was modern and clean, but small details like the cleanliness of the handheld showerhead (used an accessible room) were minimal. I wish they had more than just 2 towels in the room. Other than that, I had a great time at The Link and will definitely book again!! Happy travels.

This room lacked proper cleaning, short on towels, quite small breakfast area and super small menu

Good spot close to beach/ downtown. Accessible to major highways food drug stores restaurants.

Grear hotel,friendly staff.excemmamt pool area and location

Cozy hotel, sit and relax by the pool, fun things to do nearby.

There was one towel in room, to get second towel had to go to front desk 2 times. The front room door had a space between floor and door, so we heard all kind of noise, including kids screaming at the pool at 1:30 am and nobody stopped it. Bed is ok, remote wouldn’t work. Ceiling was very dirty.

Arrived at noon. Although earlier than 4pm official check in, the clerk said she would ask housekeeping to expedite my room availability. I kept overhearing the housekeeping manager saying the hotel didn't have enough towels available. Odd. I waited and waited. 2pm I ask for update. Am told same story. By this time more people are arriving and being told no rooms were ready. 3:50 I ask again. They are working on it. 4:15 I say now is past official check in time where's my room. Again they are working on it. By about 430 the room was ready. I go to room and 30 minutes later a housekeeper came to bring towels. I hope that these few towels were not the only reason that I had to wait 4 hours. But I suspect it was. TOWELS??? an issue for a hotel? I could tell by that chatter going back and forth from the staff that the place is not well managed and they have a real breakdown in communication between housekeeping and the desk. The room was a suite. Larger than I expected. Separate bedroom and living area. The hotel itself is an older motel style building. They offer breakfast and shuttle to airport and port. Fast wifi.

Convenient, close to local stores and restaurants. Clean, renovated and staff friendly and accommodating. Room small even for a Queen bed, but nicely decorated and adequate. Bathroom, again, small but fine and well maintained.

Very friendly and helpful I would come back again the front desk staff were friendly and helpful and it’s only 15 minuets away from the airport.
