Due to circumstances beyond their control, we had no hot water during our stay. Our room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was very good.

Premium feel hotel with large rooms but slow WiFi.

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Cons: The WiFi. Slowest speed ever experience in a hotel within the past 5 years.
The staff was both friendly and helpful. I found this Best Western to be situated in a manicured grounds setting more likely to be seen with a Hyatt or BW's sister brand Marriott. It was set back from the busy road and required a drive along a winding driveway through very nice shrubbery. Rooms were very large and most if not all have a sofa. Complimentary breakfast was only OK. No fresh fruit or cup-up fruit cocktail. Coffee from a machine - but not the freshly ground beans specially made individual cup type but the type that dispenses coffee concentrate mixed with hot water. It was not too bad. Temperature control in the room was good with "in the wall" HVAC systems. However, please note that free WiFi was the slowest I have encountered in a US or European hotel in the past 5 years. For reference, I have a hotel stay at least once a month. It was so slow that it could not fully load the NY Times site or any site with photos. As I write this, I am in another Best Western Plus hotel in Fort Myers Florida. Here the WiFi speed is commercial grade and web sites appear instantaneously on the screen. This is what I am used to in most hotels. I would NOT recommend the Best Western Fort Lauderdale Airport for business travelers that need to use the Internet.

Great location-next to I-95.

The hotel is not in the best condition. It is very accessible to many things, and very affordable though. The staff is very nice. Breakfast is always crowded and I usually have to take my food back to the room. It's decent food, though.

Conveniently located and clean

Posted Jul 16, 2017
Pros: Good location and the price was okay
Cons: We need a bigger breakfast room
The only criticism I have is that we cannot take advantage of the breakfast because the room was so jampacked with people

Don't Believe The Photographs Posted By Management

Posted Jul 9, 2017
Pros: Proximity to Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL) was a plus. There is a good selection of dining choices within 2 miles of this location.
Cons: Cleaning of guest rooms was grossly deficient. Front desk management does not follow through with remedies that hotel guests bring to their attention
Location: Near the airport! A large mall/strip shopping center within a mile of this hotel. Right off I-95.
I booked an eleven day stay at this hotel. Rates were below average, so it was economical for a stay of this length. However, once I checked-in I saw why the rate incentives were quoted to prospective travelers. Carpets in my room (a suite) were stained, spotted and soiled. Mold was on the grout and caulking surrounding the bathtub/shower unit. The bathtub drain was clogged to the extent that the tub filled 3/4 full when showering. I reported this to the morning Front Desk Manager on the second day of my 11 day stay and it was never corrected and fixed and I was not allowed to change rooms where this would not be a problem. The printers in the business office area were out of commission for 2 consecutive days. Guest rooms were not vacuumed daily. Ice machines were not available on each floor. Although this hotel is convenient to the Fort Lauderdale International Airport there are at least 8 other hotels available within 4 blocks of this particular hotel that would have been better (as I have stayed in several of them previously before). I would NEVER stay at this hotel again and I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

Close to airport. But that's about it.

Posted Jul 6, 2017
The first room that we were given smelt old and musty. Mold was all over the walls. Went and complained. Given the room next door. It was slightly better and decided if this was all they had to offer wasn't going to bother complaining. Of note the second room's bathroom was filled of mold in the shower. The staff was helpful. Location close to airport. And room spacious. But given my experience wouldn't recommend to anyone!
