    Great staff and location. Old-time charm and ambiance. Made me feel like I was living n a John McDonald mystery. Great value for the money. Really liked this place.

    Good price for location close to beach, shopping, restaurants. Large room for price. Nice grounds. Friendly, helpful staff.

    Plumbing problems-- needs updating. Mostly very clean, except floor needed better cleaning. Bad- found roach in the morning on floor near tv. Good- roach was dead. (Hard to avoid roaches in this climate and location).

    The hotel is very well located, just next to the beach. Small motel with a friendly atmosphere.

    Our room was very small and the bathroom would need some renovation.

    A/C did not work, Again! Did not work last trip. Had to change room. A little more expensive than other area motels.

  • Group of friends

    It's an older hotel a block off Ft. Lauderdale beach in the north end of the Los Olas neighborhood, surrounded by super-resorts of Hilton, w, Westin, and Ritz Carlton. High End neighborhood. The rooms are a bit dated, but clean and well maintained. Nice Courtyard with Tiki Hut bar and gazebo available. Parking included- no additional cost. About 25% of the cost !!

    The only thing is to keep in mind that the property is "old Florida", so it's going to be a little "rustic". But there's "rustic" and there's "sleazy", and this is definitely a clean, quality operation !

    Easy walk to nice places in Fort Lauderdale, but away fromthenoise. Very quiet and a most comfortable bed.

    The location..close to the beach and mulitple restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

    There were two problems we encountered..first there were no hairdryers available so we had to purchase one. I had written to them earlier to reserve one and they said it wasn't necessary. Secondly, the microwave did not work. One other thing..there was no room cleaning service on sunday.

    The personel in the reception were very friendly.

    Cleaning doesn't satisfy us at all and the pressure in the shower was very low.

    Sa situation géographique ! Et son prix pour la région. La dame de l'acceuil était très sympa. Très bien pour une nuit, si on veut découvrir Fort Lauderdale.

    Hotel basique niveau confort et propreté de la chambre. Il semble très veillissant et devrait être rafraichi. Mais il reste correct pour une nuit.

    The staff was very nice and helpful!

    There is almost no wall between the hotel rooms, so is the noise. You hear everything and have to hope that your neighbors are not that noisy young men wanting to partying...

    An excellent location and a splendid view over the Beach from top floor. At the arrival we were upgraded to luxurious apartment with a terrace,so we could have a bottle of wine outside ;-). The rooms were clean,kitchen with all you need appliances, and they have a swimming pool in the garden, which is hidden from the street,so surprise was even bigger :-)

    It would be nice to have some body gel in the Bathroom and some Cleaner in the Kitchen..you don't walk with cleaning gels around during your trips ;-)

  • Single

    The office closed at 10:00pm despite the hotel having sent a confirmation email stating that it would be open until 12:00am. In pouring rain I had to go to a property down the street to check in. A rainstorm caused an electric electric outage at the hotel. There was no emergency lighting to facilitate safe movement about the property.

  • Group of friends

    Hotel was very inexpensive and clean. The staff was friendly. The room was old and basic with thin mattresses and blankets but I felt it was excellent value for the money. The heated salt water pool was a very nice extra.the location was perfect.

    didnt like the idea of no smoking,had to go outside,should have a least three rooms that permit smoking in it,their were some chilly days,and rain,didnt enjoy sitting outside in the rain..would have paid extra..
