We were only staying here a night after flying in from Seattle and heading on to Miami the next day but the place looked nice on the website. We were disappointed at every turn. First we went to the pool bar to grab a drink and walk on the beach. The bartender was too busy flirting to bother taking our order. I finally went to him and asked for a Mojito. He answered without looking at me that they don't have them and continued his conversation. I asked what they did have and he slid a dirty plastic drink menu towards me. A ordered two different drinks and obviously annoyed to interrupt his conversation he quickly made two of the exact same drink (not what I ordered). After going out to dinner, we returned in hopes of a good night sleep before heading on to Miami. First there were people partying and smoking in the room and on the balcony next door. We had an adjoined room so the noise and the smoke smell permeated out own room. We called and asked to be moved but were told they were all booked. The noise continued until 3am when we called again and talked to security. We got a call back asking if security would "hang out in our room" to investigate our neighbors. We said no and to please just simply listen at the door or watch from the walkway below their room. There was also partying coming from up above us but knowing security did nothing we were forced to spend along and sleepless night at this awful place. We got up early and left as quickly as we could. My wife recounted what happened during check out but the woman could have cared less and had nothing to say about it. This is a run-down, dirty hotel with rude and dismissive staff. With all of the other options in the area DO NTO WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE!

Nice getaway for a few days in a good location

First time here with my boyfriend (he always stays here when he travels to FLL) room was clean and comfortable with a balcony ocean view 9th floor king bed. Love the shower (has dual heads one being detachable definitely a perk!) the counter space in bathroom is enough to hold a toothbrush and a tiny glass shelf to hold maybe some tweezers and deodorant lol makes it tough for us ladies who have blowdryers and straighteners but that was the only negative thing about the room. Bed was comfy room was clean. Loved the full length mirrors on closet doors. There was a safe and an iron and board and the pool must’ve been heated because it was very nice. Not sure I’d wanna stay there during a busy time as the pool area and pool aren’t very big but all was fun clean and staff were friendly and professional

Couples getaway

mlemu on Nov 06, 2021

My wife and I stayed here for a 4 night getaway. We have stayed at ocean sky before and really enjoyed. All the staff is great. Location close walk to anything you may need ( dunkin, breakfast places, pizza/subs, Winn dixie). Rooms clean, nice amenities and all balconies ocean view. Small issue with our hot water but was fixed within minutes of us letting front desk know. Only issues with this place is that the food and beverage has automatic gratuities added on which is fine with us but it is not really let know to the customers. Other is the third party rental that rents out the chairs, umbrellas, jets ski. Very poorly operated with the workers playing Frisbee on the pool deck one morning while we are moving our chairs to the beach with a bunch of other couples to then have them walk around and say BTW if is $15 per chair if you want to continue to sit in them and $20 if you want to keep the umbrella. While the staff was more worried about when they were going g to take their next joyride in the jetski rather than helping paying hotel guests on the beach. Very poorly operated but again this is a third party. Knowing this we would still go back and recommend.

Just Meh

FloNative on Nov 02, 2021

We stayed here to be somewhat close to the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show with another couple. I have to say the front desk staff was very nice and checked us in efficiently. Bartender at the pool bar was super friendly and attentive. Beds were very comfortable, which was a plus. Short driving distance (1 mi or so) to happening area of restaurants, bars, and small shops. Rooms were okay, but outdated. It is clearly an older Ramada hotel (we knew because there were stickers on the a/c covering up the old Ramada logo), which is fine, but the hotel just had a rundown feel. Our friends that were in a room 3 floors up from us said the same. Paint chipping on the exterior of room doors, black spots near the ceiling on the crown moulding in our room (that looked like mold), bathroom sink wouldn't drain, etc. The bathroom was however clean and nice, but again, the room overall, it is just meh. We didn't spend too much time at the pool or beach since we were gone most of the day for the boat show, but when sitting at the pool bar in the evening, I must say the people watching was great. May sound pretentious, but some of the guests in the pool and hot tub, looked less than desirable, to the point we decided to skip taking a dip in either. For what we paid, which I am sure was because of the hotel being waterfront, we would stay elsewhere next time. Not sure why all of the 5 start reviews unless it primarily has to do with the staff as they were all excellent.
