Overnight accommodations

This was last night stop off before airport. We thought we had searched out a location close to Ft. Lauderdale airport through the travel service site, but this was not especially close. Traffic was light Saturday morning, so reached airport in less than 30 mins. This is a reasonable hotel option for those on a budget.

Dining tip: In Hotel

There is a grocery store, pharmacy and several restaurants within short walking distance of the hotel. The hotel had very modest, (small, simple) but clean accommodations. Good water pressure in shower. The front desk staff was very friendly and gracious. The AC unit in the single, king, non-smoking room was very noisy.

Not so great

I understand this is a budget hotel and bare bones. However, there were several issues with this hotel. Pros: the staff was friendly Cons: the elevator and surroundings were not clean, two of the lights in our room did not work, housekeeping cleaned our room and did not leave any towels, the air conditioner did not go below 65 degrees but felt like 75, breakfast was free but awful and not well kept or enough seating.

Nice hotel for the price

Early check in wasn't a problem. Checked in around noon. Staff was helpful and personable. 15 min from airport comfortable clean rooms. Ice cold air conditioning. I'd stay again for the price.

Weekend trip to playoff.

I went to the Miami NBA game and Fihing the Evergladdes , everything was ok. It's my fourt time in this hotel and has been very good. Many restuarants in the area close to the hotel and many other stores near by. I recommend the hotel is adecuated for the rate and location. Room clean, confort bed, free breadfast and staff.

bad choice in hotel and getting in general.

Definitely not your average hotel ...in fact pretty bad all around.. Only chair in the room was a falling apart desk chair on wheels.Very basic with no attempt at charm or grace. A/C was terrible, hotel noisy and could not sleep all night. moved to a new hotel straight next morning, They told us our cancellation was accepted but we would have to contact orb itz to get a refund...

Short stop in Florida

When we first checked in we were given a room which had been used and not cleaned properly. The bed was large and comfortable. Restrooms very clean and staff very friendly. Hotel is mediocre and has a sense of coldness in the air.
