Within my expectation

Posted Sep 20, 2016
Pros: Clean rooms.
Cons: The common exterior area needs some eye candy.
The adage of you get what you pay for. The room was excellent. There is no common guest area. I had some issue with the scent of detergent used to clean to the room. The beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly and I had no issues with them. I happy I did not have any parking issues. I did ask the staff why were there reports of parking issues on the online reviews. She stated that there were twelve rooms and there are twelve parking spots.

Nice, clean and close to the beach

Posted Aug 21, 2016 on Orbitz
The Great Escape Inn is a very nice and affordable place to stay in Lauderdale by the sea, not a fancy 5 star hotel but immaculate clean, the lady at the registration desk was friendly and very helpful. It is located just a few blocks away from the beach and a short walk to many restaurants. The only issue I should say is that during our stay they were doing some upgrades on the floor near the pool area so while they were working nobody could use the pool or stay close by since there were a lot of dust caused by this, but the lady at the front desk informed me of the work they were doing during those days starting at 11 am, apparently they are remodeling the hostel so it would be nicer so keep in mind this if you plan to go during this period of time and enjoy the pool before or after working time, for me not a big deal since you have the beach so close. Overall me and my husband enjoyed our stay and definitely will come back.

Nice hotel within walking distance of the beach

Posted Aug 17, 2016
I stayed here for 6 days, 5 nights. The room is a decent size , nicely decorated, reasonably clean. The beds were not very comfortable but tolerable. There is a small pool. The inn itself is quiet but the street outside is busy at night. My room was closest to the street so I had some trouble getting to sleep some nights. Staff was very friendly. The best part is that you can walk to the beach and it's only a few blocks.

A little gem

Posted Aug 12, 2016
Pros: Location, near the beach and shopping.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Walk half a block, you are on El Mar Avenue, a beautiful street for walking that runs right along the oceanfront.
Hotel is very small, and very conveniently located. The hotel has been nicely updated, while maintaining its 1950's charm.

Great find

Posted Jun 28, 2016 on Hotels
This was a great find for the price and area. Room was very clean and the beds were clean and comfortable. Kitchenette was a pleasant surprise. They have a pool that, due to weather and schedule, I did not get to use. The front desk is not 24 hours which is fine with me since I only use it for check in/out. They do make special arrangements if you arrive after hours. The two front desk clerks I dealt with were very friendly and helpful. Also, a major concern in another review was that they use old style keys instead of key cards. But with all the issues with key cards, I actually preferred this. The person who commented about this was worried about previous guests making copies and gaining entrance to the room. But, while in the room, there is a deadbolt you can lock which there is no key given for. There is an entrance to the beach right around the corner on Washingtonia. A short trip to the north is a strip mall including a First Watch and a CVS. A short trip to the south takes you to an area with shops and restaurants. I didn't notice any ice or vending machines but these are unnecessary since you have a fridge in the room. I would definitely recommend this place and I plan to return when I am in the area again.
