Owner needs seriously consider re-novation

I understand that we should not expect so much for this price range. But, a little colored water from water pipe, dark and uncleaning room, unuseful dishes and kitche facility shows need renovation.

Can't beat the price & location

The staff is what made this hotel enjoyable and the location was perfect for my needs. It was 10min away from an abundance of local and famous attractions. The hotel needs a few updates but is worth the cost. I spent little time at the hotel because there is so much to do nearby.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

I would recommend that you look into the Miami GoCard at smartdestinations.com. It is one pass for 1, 2, 3, or 5 days that allows one adult/child to get into over 30 attractions in many different cities including Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Delray, and many others. It was well worth the cost.

Affordable,clean and comfortable

my reservations were made last minute and I arrived 2 hours before check in time.the staff is very accommodating in the room I'm getting it ready for me as soon as they could which only took 30 minutes as opposed to two hour wait I would have had with other places. the staff was friendly and helpful. The pool area have a barbecue grill to use vending machines that took credit cards that actually worked and that was a pleasant surprise. the room was clean and comfortable. the air conditioning however I had a hard time keeping up with the heatof the day and a safe in the room did not work nor do the remote control no notepad or pe but I would stay again.

Fighting in apartments next door

My girlfriend and I checked in for a night. At 12:00 we awoke to loud shouting coming from the apartment building next door, owned by the same owners I think. Some domestic dispute, woman fighting with three other males outside. Very loud. Not to worry, she was alive because they were going at it again at 2 am. Again, she must have survived because we hear her loud piercing screaming again at 4 am, and some other man shouting. It sounded like he was crying. Too bad the neighborhood brings the motel down.

room was fine

checking in was a breeze, no problems. opening the door seemed like any other 2 star hotel. the bathroom was good, the separate sink room needed some attention. but they had another sink in with the bathtub and that one was clean and good. one thing is the floor could use a sweeping as my feet got dirty and could feel the sand from the beach. overall was happy as the price compared to other hotels was quite reasonable. this hotel is nothing fancy if thats what you want go across the street and pay double to triple. its a good place to sleep in. when \i travel i don't stay in rooms other than to sleep.

Lafayette Motel Experience

My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay since we realized the miles were far too long from vacation, and needed a place to sleep. We called a week before to reserve a room. Advice: ***Call if you need a non-smoking room after your book a reservation. Just to make sure. Motels are very first come first serve. *** Call if you are going to be late. In that way you avoid your reservation being cancelled. They were very happy we did this. ***kudos for the little kitchen included! Overall we had a great time! For spending one night, not bad.

Business trip weekend stayover

The room was clean, but was in need of maintenance. It is an older hotel, but the value and location were excellent. 1 block from the beach. There was a kitchenette in the room, which I did not use.

You Get What You Pay For

Hotel was old, but very clean for what you would expect of a 2 star. Beach is a block away which is awesome, and other stores/restaurants are a bit further - but only about a 15-20 min walk. It's not fair to compare the Lafayette to other 4+ star hotels that in the same area, it's very nice for the price. And the staff is very helpful with any extra needs you may need. I would def stay there again :)
