Quieter location in Ft. Lauderdale.

Posted Feb 16, 2018
Pros: Beach right in front of the hotel and the pool was nice too. Good local restaurants for a quick dinner and quite a good feel to the walking area aroun
Cons: Beds.
Location: Restaurants and shops within a few minutes to 15 minute walk. Water taxis about 25-30 minute walk.
Overall a good experience and was what we were looking for. Excellent beach access and much quieter than further down the beach around the big hotels. Very easy access to restaurants in a small local area only a couple of minutes walk. Felt safe in the neighbourhood as lots of people out in the evening. The hotel is older and the beds could use an update but overall good cleanliness and friendly staff. Lots of return guests and an older crowd generally. Very quiet at night. Breakfast is basic but it was good for us. If you don't have a car you need to be able to walk down the street to the grocery store or about 25 minute walk to the start of the water taxis. We vacationed in Ft. Lauderdale for the first time for a couple of days, pre cruise and just walked and had no trouble finding the water taxis or seeing the sites in Ft. Lauderdale.

One of my very favorite places!

Posted Feb 7, 2018
Pros: The relaxed , friendly atmosphere! The view!! The picture from the balcony has been my screen saver for 10 years!! Places to eat and shop nearby.
Location: The block dance in the square on Friday night with a great band. WALKING the beach!
The staff is wonderful, friendly and anxious to please . Many of the guests are repeat visitors and it is fun to talk with them about previous visits. Feels like family!

Nice hotel, terrible owner

Posted Feb 3, 2018
I at first was pleased with the homey feel of the Sea Lord hotel. A few things are dated, however a great ocean view and nice room. All staff were great especially Dana, Fellon, Consuelo & Tatiana. My stay was great until the last night. I was even suggesting the location for my girlfriends for our 50th birthday meet up. Unfortunately in this hotel, you cannot have visitors ..??? The owner is rude, obnoxious, presumptuous & disrespectful. His use of discriminating language was both racially & culturally biased. I am a 50 year old well travelled college professor. Both myself & my friend of over 30 years were insulted. This could easily have been my every 4 month get-a-way place. Absolutely not!!!! 0 out out 10 for the owner.

Nice place. I would stay here again. View of the ocean from the room was beautiful. Breakfast was good. Again another great view of pool and ocean. Walked along the beach right outside the hotel. Staff was responsive and pleasant.

Right on the beach

Posted Jan 9, 2018
Pros: The location and it was right on the beach.
Cons: More variety on the breakfast offerings
Location: Right on the beach and within walking distance of downtown where there are restaurants, bars etc.
The best point of the hotel is that it is right on the beach. You can eat your breakfast while u look out at the waves. Gotta love that. Great location as it is within walking distance of downtown, stores and lots of restaurants/ice cream places. Also can walk to two food stores, Winn-Dixie and Publix. Rooms were a nice size and clean although u may have to ask for coffee or tissues. Theses were the items that we had to ask for. No problem getting what we need though. Shout out to Suzan, Zika and Tatiana for the great job they all do.

A Small Gem On The Ocean

Posted Dec 31, 2017
You could never find a more customer service oriented hotel as this one. The staff is happy, caring and services their customers quickly. The continental breakfast was a “full breakfast” in my opinion. (bagels, breads, muffins, eggs, fresh fruit, cream cheese, jam, 4 different cereals and coffe/tea) in an pretty and quaint dining room. We were only able to book their last available room which was too small for us but did contain a fridge and microwave). We highly recommend this hotel for a family/beach vacation.

Third time around-Under construction

Posted Dec 19, 2017
Pros: Its location
Cons: Shut down the hotel when doing major construction!!
Location: Beautiful location on the beach and a short walk to downtown LBTS. A few miles away, you can catch a water taxi and tour the Lauderdale intercoastal.
This was my 3rd time at the Sealord. Its located at a beautiful location and grounds are nice. The problem is: for my second stay there in 3 years, there was lots of construction and high level noise. This disrupted my stay and made it difficult to enjoy. There was no notice of this constuction, which began early morning (7:20am) and throughout the day. The construction noise from next door was so loud I had to leave the room. I complained to the desk and attendant, who was gracious and understanding and also provided me a discount. The ownership simply should not have rented rooms while under construction!
