    Amazing Beach front location

    This hotel was very nice, there were a few issues with elevators when we stayed here but other than that the hotel lobby, restaurant, and patio were nice. We had just arrived from a Cruise and wanted to spend a couple days on the beach. This was a bit pricy for the the "room style" but the location makes up for the simple dated room. The beach is beautiful. The restaurant on site is perfect for family dining and has a gorgeous full window view of the ocean

    I have to be honest......

    I have to be honest, after reading several reviews, I was so nervous about staying here, but it turned out to be a great experience. Good things....the room was comfortable and clean and anyone cleaning the rooms were nice and always smiled and said hello, front desk was okay during the day, but I preferred the night person, towels are free at the pool and the towel lady was so nice, you just have to sign them in/out, it was not overly crowded at the pool or beach area. DO NOT eat at the restaurant in the hotel, the food is severely overpriced and the service sucks. Also, DO NOT drink at the tiki hut at the hotel, GO NEXT DOOR to your right, service is amazing, food is top notch, and so are the drinks. Go to Winn Dixie for food and snacks, McDonald's is right around the corner, and there's a great pizza place AND a Dunkin Donuts not far away. Yes, only one elevator was working but it wasn't a problem....we were on vacation and had no where to go lol!!! I really liked this hotel with the exception of not being able to smoke on the balcony lol. I would return, and we definitely plan on returning soon. A few suggestions for the hotel....offer some kind of breakfast or muffins and coffee in the morning for free for your guests. You have a great hotel, and sometimes it's the little things that you do for your guests that will make them want to return. Don't allow children in the hot tub, with or without adults. I didn't feel comfortable in there with children who's parents were not supervising them. Have some type of activity night for adults, it seemed like the entire hotel shut down and everyone was in bed asleep by 7pm every night that we were there! But all in all, I LOVED IT!

    The restaurant in this hotel is horrible and has the rudest server ever. INNO watch out for him. They charge tip automatically. If you don't purchase alcohol, he will not give you service. Would not refill water. The hotel is undergoing construction so there is jack hammering all day starting at 9 am ending at 6pm. No compensation. Not workable at all. Showers are horrible.

    Not satisfied

    The hotel seemed to be run down only one Elevator out of the three was in good working order. Too many smokers at the front door continuously. The housekeeping staff could never get four sets of complete towels for the room on any given day and it was an eight day stay. I would not choose this hotel ever again

    We liked it enough to return!

    We are now a repeat customer. We love the location, and the hotel fits our budget. The location is perfect. Right on the beach. Its was not crowded and got plenty of sun. Also helpful, was a supermarket and dining locations nearby. You can stock up on some snacks and drinks at the Winn-Dixie and store them in the provided fridge. There is also a microwave. Very handy! The pool and hot tub locations were excellent. Both were clean and a lot of fun. We spent several days laying out on their free beach chairs. Most guests stay on the deck, however you can lay on the sand. Avoid the tiki bar as the mixed drinks were watered down. Our tip is to visit the adjoining hotel's tiki bar which is within eye sight of the pool area. They had better drinks and music. The hotel rooms all come with very nice balconies to sit and relax. The beds were comfortable. The pillows were mixed. Some were firm, and others soft. So not an issue. I will say the walls are paper thin. I could hear my Aunt and her family in the next room. My tip is to ask for a room on the end. Then you will only have one "thin wall." :) After looking over a number of places to stay along Fort Lauderdale, we were happy with our choice. We will stay here again.
