Great value

Spent the night to go to the boat show. Staff was professional and accommodating, facilities very nice, breakfast above average for what you typically get with your room. My only complaint was the softness of the beds as I like a firm mattress.

Just ok

The desk person was very unprofessional in which I wrote a complaint to Hotel. The shuttle driver, Maria, was very professional, friendly, and helpful. The desk person yelled at Maria right in front of us for helping us. Maria would do great as the desk person and the desk person would do great as a custodial, in my opinion. The towels in the bathroom were stained, and the drain catch on the sink faucet was ripped and at first glance, I thought it was a "private part" piece of hair. The location to the cruise ships is very close but still need to us the shuttle service. I give the shuttle service an A PLUS.

spring break

the hotel is very close to the airport. The first day and a half we had no internet access and we had to call the front desk several times. They had a technician come out to help fix the problem, eventually we had to change rooms. Room 209 is not the room to be in. Breakfast was good, had a variety of things to choose from. we rented a car so it was pretty easy to get around. the rooms were clean and that was one of the most important things to me.

Decent, except for the weird smell.....

The hotel itself was fine, and the staff were friendly and helpful. We liked the location, and the rooms were clean, the bedding comfortable. The only thing that bothered us was the hotel is right next to the water purification plant. So while you stood outside waiting for your shuttle or taxi, the odor was almost enough to run you back inside. Not the hotels fault, but still, I made my husband wait outside for everything. haha.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a trolley that you catch right in front of the hotel that will take you on a one way ride to the Galleria Mall for .50 cents. You can get off anywhere on the route, which passes right by the beach. You just hop on and off for .50 cents each ride, or buy an all day pass for $2.

Great location, Perfect for our stay.

Room was perfect, bed was great, nice and quiet, staff went ABOVE AND BEYOND to be helpful, great free hot/cold breakfast, shopping and eateries close by, convenient (cheap) trolly to beach or additional shopping, short walk to water taxi. A great, reasonably priced hotel. We will be staying there again.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

The trolley to the beach/Galleria Mall stops right outside the hotel. All you have to do is wave at it. The cost is 50 cents per person per ride or $2.00 for a day pass. We rode it from the hotel all the way to the Galleria Mall and back to the beach where we got off and spent a few hours then got on at the beach and went back to our hotel. The water taxi (both ways) is well worth the money.

Great location

It is close to Port Everglades, and many restaurants within walking distance. Free pick-up from the airport is ok; free breakfast is great. Taxi to the port costs less than $15.

terrific spot for business stay

Between the beach and downtown a perfect inexpensive place to get some work done and head to the beautiful beach.Buffet breakfast was the best among midprice chains. A clean, well appointed hotel with fantastic staff. A big thanks to Lucretia who put me in the quietest room as requested. I'll be back again next November.
