bel hôtel, loin de la plage

Posted Jul 22, 2016
Pros: stationnement sans frais. loin de la plage cependant
Cons: contentez-vous de ces commentaires
Location: on avait une voiture, alors on est allé où on voulait sinon je ne sais pas quelles attractions sont si proches.
personnel très gentil mais pour le ménage de la salle de bain, on repassera. Le restant était impeccable

Don't stay here.

Posted Jul 20, 2016
From the room description to the location at the beach, this property is not what is promoted on Expedia. The room pictures present an entirely different expectation than what you will experience. Quoted price does not reflect what you be charged. On top of the room rate is a $50/night deposit that will be collected at check in. The HVAC/air in our room was extremely old and could not produce cool air. The 'ocean view' was clearly false advertisement; the condos across the street completely block the view from any room. The staff is unable to clearly communicate. The food was not good, tasted stale and over priced. Beach access was three blocks away due to the condo properties across the street owning all access to the beach. There was nothing to see or do around this location, as well. Although there was public transportation, the staff was clueless and offered no helpful information on what was available to the guests. To top if off, there is not enough parking for guests and no overflow area to park. The only place where we could park was next to a dumpster, where we found a long scratch down one side of our vehicle where the staff pushed containers through when dumping trash. The pictures online present an entirely different perspective and create a false expectation. Rooms appear to be updated but are not worth the price. If you stay here lower the bar of what you're going to receive during your stay.

Pretty good family hotel for the money

Pretty good family hotel for the money and 10 minute walk to the beach and Walgreens. Bike rentals nearby. On the scenic A1A road

OK Hotel if you have time on your hands

Posted Jul 5, 2016
Pros: The room would have been great if not so musty.
Cons: air conditioning maintenance, a way to get to and from the beach, a warning about the expense of parking since its too fat to walk to the beach.
Location: The Hotel is near the Lauderdale by the Sea area that has smaller more accessible inns and a clean and wide beach area. Ft Lauderdale is full of p
the Hotel is a wide run with the rooms spread out with inadequate parking. As a rule you must travel around the block 2 times before a parking spot can be located. The ride to the beach is over 5-blocks, and the road in front of the hotel is torn up and difficult to cross with no cross walks.It is unfortunate that the staff does not have a shuttle to the beach and some explaination on how to find it. The first evening, a long walk in both directions did not find any beach access as the properties east of the Hotel are all private with no beach access. It was obvious that the staff was not prepared for so many guests. the room was somewhat clean with the exception of the couch and carpet. The musty mildew smell was problematic due to the AC evaporator being totally blocked with dust and the howling of the unit got better when the dirt and debris was cleaned from the unit (I cleaned it with the unit off, totally plugged). It is evident that there is no proper mechanical check of the units rather important feature, the air conditioning.

Great hotel, a little far from the beach

Posted Jun 26, 2016
The hotel staff was excellent. The rooms were clean and nice. The only negatives is that it's too far of a walk to walk to the beach and parking was a little rough. I can't stress enough how awesome the staff was though

Thank you for staying with us. We are happy to know you like the room and our hotel staff. We are on a beach community and maybe the few hotels around that don't charge for parking space for the first car. We look forward to welcome you back on another great stay.

Nice hotel, very clean

Posted Jun 24, 2016
Hotel reception was very friendly and accommodating, the rooms were very clean and fresh towels provided each day. The food at the bar was good as well. Beach was a bit of a walk...I'd say about 10 minutes if you walk fast. The only thing I had a problem with was trying to find parking after 9pm... even their extra lot was full. Overall we were very satisfied with the service we got here.

Nice hotel, a bit of a walk but ok with me.

Posted Jun 22, 2016
Room was clean and comfortable. Food was good as well. Entertainment would be a bonus if they had it on a Friday or Saturday night. Good experience for me.

Please look past this nice front photo!

Posted Jun 21, 2016
Pros: The upgrades in the room with the newly designs was about it. Everything else, keep moving along!
Cons: Everything. They should not be showing just the hotel it's self as the main picture. They do not list the "Villas" in this picture for a reason.
Location: Rent a car- nothing is in walking distance from this hotel/motel!
We booked thinking we were staying at a close resort to the beach and having everything so close to us we were excited. When we arrived, there was no parking. We parked far away in the pouring rain and were freezing coming in. We booked 4 nights with a king room with balcony. We received word that we were staying in the "VILLA" which is newly renovated. At this point, we were extremely exhausted and ready to just get our car and stuff and get to the room with better parking. The "VILLA" is not apart of the hotel, it's a few buildings down. Very run down from the outside, the pool was disgusting dirty, the parking was horrible and it felt like I was in the HOOD with the apartment run down look. This was not what we booked!! The room after you go in is very nice. but not much room to move. The bed takes up the whole room. NO where to put your bags comfortably. When we had a chance to get our stuff in we headed to the bar to hopefully get a better experience. The bartender was not very attentive, the service was not good, the food was not great, and the drinks were not good as well. The bar is not a place to stick around. Esp when they speak another language and you can't understand them. The Hotel shows that there is beach access near- RENT A CAR bc you have to drive about 20 minutes to even find a place with parking access and when you do, you need to pay for parking. There is no nearby access to this beach, and when you do- the hotels there show private property.
