The experience was overrall good . The hotel was very run down and the hotel will charge and overcharge for anything they possibly can . You have to pay for valet parking every day you are there , rent lounge chairs for the beach , drinks are 10 and 11 dollars a pop ....they list breakfast as an amenity with a surcharge but you can plan on spending $30 for a typical breakfast for 2 . Good vibe and atmosphere in the hotel tho .

Go for the tiki bar alone!Posted May 11, 2015
Pros: The tiki bar, beach access, and pool area were truly amazing. They were the only reason we didn't cancel our reservations and change hotels.
Cons: Everything about the rooms. Basic maintanence and repairs are desparately needed, and the cable TV is a complete joke. Not even worth turning on.
Location: Lauderdale By the Sea is a short drive north and has great shopping and restaurants. Otherwise everything you need is at the tiki bar onsite.
Spent our honeymoon at Ocean Manor Resort in May 2015. Everyone on staff was very friendly and accomodating. The tiki bar was the best we could find in Fort Lauderdale, and was absolutely the best part of the hotel experience. It was worth the stay, even though most of the other aspects of the hotel was disappointing. If it weren't for the amazing tiki bar, we would have never stayed one night - let alone all 6 nights. Our room was a disaster. We got two double beds instead of the king bed we reserved, and faced a $300+ upcharge if we wanted to get it changed. The bathroom was too small to fit two grown people in at once. The shower leaked all over the floor, and never stopped dripping. The "fully stocked kitchen" came with one knife, a small frying pan, and a 2qt sauce pot. The refridgerator door had no door handle (it was designed to have one, it had just broken off). Two of the four burners on the stove were broken and inoperable. The walls were so thin that we could hear every conversation from the room next door and directly above us. The tile floors amplified any footsteps with shoes that were taken in the adjoining rooms or room above. Terrible hotel for kids, or anyone that requires peaceful sleep. The indoor restaurant - Tokyo Blue - was closed the whole week. Seriously, if you care about anything other than beach access, pool, or tiki bar - DON'T STAY AT THIS HOTEL. If, like us, you're only going for those things, this place is great.

Did not meet my expectationPosted Apr 25, 2015
This hotel is very old with nice renovations. Most of the consistencies that you find at a chain or name brand hotel aren't there. We did not receive any informational packet for the hotel and surrounding area like at other hotels. We had to ask for a "do not disturb" sign for our door and the cleaning staff did not abide by it. Luckily, we were sitting on our balcony when they checked in on us by coming into our room unannounced. The staff was friendly but I would not call them hospitable. Some units are owned which I assume is why the staff was hardly hospitable and helpful. There was a lot of ruckus through the time we were there. Ambulances, crime scene investigators, accidental alarm soundings, no hot water for more than one day.. The Bamboo Tiki Bar on site was convenient considering Tokyo Blue has closed. This hotel is more than a mile from any nice restaurants or attractions. In my opinion, there was nothing great and nothing terrible about the hotel. If I go back to Fort Lauderdale, I will stay elsewhere.

Hotel was old and needs upgradePosted Apr 14, 2015
Pros: Location and right on beach
Cons: The overall hotel needs fixing up and valet service was a total ripe off. Very rude valet service also.
Location: Lots to do restaurants and beach enjoyment
The hotel bed was comfortable and was right on beach but very old and shabby room. We had a suite which was very large and full kitchen but was not even given a complimentary tea bag or coffee in room which I thought was strange. For $570 ( which I paid for one night) I felt we could of had better service. On a scale of 1-10 I give this hotel a 5.

Hotel was not clean!Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: The location
Cons: I would suggest that the housekeeping manager or interior manager audits the level of cleanliness throughout the hotel.
Location: On the beach front, lots of restaurants, bars and shops.
I would not recommend staying at this hotel. It was unhygienic and there was a smelly wet substance that appeared to be vomit in the hallway of our floor.The room was not clean, the bathroom had sand and scum left in the shower, the beds were not made the curtains were disheveled. The valet lost our ticket and ultimately brought us a car that wasn't ours.

Great location, decent hotelPosted Mar 30, 2015
Stayed during spring break. Room was not ready at check in. Stayed in the 2 bedroom suite. Great room, but not worth the $400 a night. Needs some remodeling. The staff was so so at best. Great location! You have the pool, tiki bar and beach right there. A bit pricey. Food was decent. Drinks were really good. Atmosphere was really good. I would stay again but not at these spring break rates.

Worst Hotel experience in all my 36 years.Posted Mar 28, 2015
The check in was suppose to be at 3pm on 3/21 well we ended up being able to get into our room because it had not been cleaned yet at 6pm. The hote manager Lisa is clueless at all times and cannot manage her staff. Expedia ended up booking a room with no balcony and the manager could not do anything about it she said. Finally got our room key (3 hours wasted) and a bathroom door was falling off and the fridge was not cooling. Imagine all the food we had that is was 3 adults and 3 kids for 5 nights!!! Lisa he no choice but to change our room got another room and the fridge as well did not cool or freeze any water in the freezer. The 3rd had no problem with the fridge but it sure had roaches and the "full kitchen" utensils were horrific, not a knife that cut. The pool is old and full of green fungi at the edge. The hotel is without a doubt the worst hote in have been to in my life. Come to find out in was in a episode of Hotel Impossibles. I wish I would have seen that episode before. Total nightmare
