I stayed at this place one time (June 2012) and it was my worst hotel experience so far. Smelly bed sheets, lots of stains (which looked like blood) on the carpet, loud neighbors, etc.

The rooms definitely need an upgrade and management should check the quality more often. This was not a nice experience. I complained at Crossland for this and after a review they sent an apologize and a voucher for a free-night at any of their hotels. I kindly refused but I was happy to be heard and I hope something has changed.

Would I stay there again? Unlikely, unless the rooms are upgraded, carpets are cleaned and bed liens are fully cleanied and sanitized.

I wouldn't give this place one star. Except it did stop the rain from coming on my head. Thats it! some people exaggerate on a review. Some don't give enough on a review. I will let you be the judge.
From the website. The building looked nice from the photo. I get there, because my flight was late. Nobody said 1. lobby closed at 11 and nobody would be available. You dial the number. Lady comes and says my reservation was cancelled. She showed me the room. Toilet seat broken. Room smell like damp smoke. And old Bates motel tv hardly gets channels. I decided not to stay. They still charged me. SMH

I really like it.  Its like an apartment with security.  MUCH cheaper than any other place in Ft. Lauderdale.  You can't expect the hilton when you don't pay for it.  If you need a low cost place to stay, especially going week to week, no incidental charges to hold on a credit card, you can pay cash, no credit check and actually a nice place with great staff... this is it.  I am surprised to see people complain for what they pay.  I am one to say if a place is crap, and this is not one of those places.

If we could have given it no stars, we would have. My fiancee and I stayed here for two nights and for the price, it should have been cleaner and should have a more secure feel. When he checked in, the first room the lock on the door didn't work right and he felt he could have pushed the door in anyways. He went back downstairs and told the desk that he'd like to change rooms. He got another room and walked in and the beds were not made and the garbage from the previous guests was still in the garbage can. it took them about an hour to clean the room and have it ready for us (later than the check in time.) The room had ants in the bathroom sink, the faucet in the bathroom sink moved and it just didn't feel like we should have spent $85/night for this place. We stayed at a Extended Stay America in Orlando for vacation, an off-set of Crossland somehow, and it was half the price and twice as nice. For those that are thinking of this hotel, read the reviews and think twice about staying here.

Looks very nice from the outside, but once you get inside your room it's a different story. I pulled back the sheets on the beds to check for bed bugs. None, but the box springs are very dirty. Looks like dry blood on them. Long hair on the pillow cases and between the sheets. There's not even a door knob on the bathroom door. There was a pair of kids swimming trunks in one of the drawers. It's very seedy. Oh and on my way to my room I found 2 baggies with drug residue in them. Looked like meth. I left for Walmart to buy some disinfected spray and when I came back there was a cop parked in the parking lot. Kinda shows you what kind of environment you're dealing with. Don't stay here.

When I arrived at this hotel, the first thing I did was call my boss and ask what I was being punished for! You'll understand why as you read on.

This hotel looks really pretty on the outside. It's a pale yellow with white trim. Located behind a gas station near a busy intersection, there is an open field with a pond on one side and solid trees on the other two sides. The parking lot is in good condition and they have plenty of spaces so that you can park near your room. This is good because anytime I had to walk any distance at all, there was someone trying to sell me drugs. This hotel is located in the drug / prostitution part of town. On weekends, the cops use one of the rooms to set up drug and/or prostitution busts. It's almost like a spectator sport on weekend nights, watching the cops make bust after bust with the drug dog.

I spoke with the manager and the district manager and they made two good points:
1) They were in the process of "cleaning up the hotel" and
2) Having police there every weekend arresting people would be a deterrent once word got out on the streets.

I was a guest at this hotel for 3 months while on a business trip during the Spring of 2003. My experience was seeing cops on a regular basis and being offered drugs almost daily. And when I tried to take a walk around the pond, I found the ground was covered in needles among other garbage. It looks pretty, but only from a distance.

This location has three types of rooms that I'm aware of: single, double and handicap. No matter which type you get, you will have a kitchen with a half size refrigerator (like the kind kids use in a college dorm), small microwave, 2 stove top burners, coffee maker (you provide your own filters and coffee), stainless steel sink, cabinet space and some dishes. (There is no oven.) They provide 2 plates, 2 bowls, 2 coffee mugs, 2 glasses, 1 12 inch skillet, 1 medium size saucepan, 1 non-electric can opener, 1 spatula, 2 forks, 2 butter knives, 1 serrated knife, 2 regular size spoons, 1 large spoon and 1 glass cutting board. You also get a plastic rack to dry your dishes after you hand wash them.

The bathroom has a shower only (unless you have a handicap room which comes with a shower / bathtub), toilet that's kinda loud to flush, and zero counter space. The sink does have a small metal shelf above it. You are provided 2 of each type of towel - hand, bath, washcloth and 1 floor mat. They give you soap but nothing else. There are no sewing kits, shower caps, etc. If you need them they are available from a vending machine in the laundry room which also has laundry detergent but no dryer sheets.

The beds are comfortable which is always nice. And one thing they do that not all hotels do is change the bedspread between guests. When someone checks out, they completely strip the room and then supply it with all clean stuff (linens, dishes, etc.) They separate smoking from non-smoking rooms by floors, but they are very lax about smoking in a non-smoking room. When I arrived, they didn't have a smoking room available, so they handed me an ashtray and a key to a non-smoking room.

During my stay they went from cable TV to an antenna. So you have about 5 or 6 local stations to choose from. The view from your room will be of the gas station or an open field with trees depending on which side you're on. If you are on the side with the pond, you really can't see it for all the trees, but it's there. And the view really is pretty.

The laundry room is clean and to wash a load of clothes is 4 quarters - same price to dry.  The staff is not very friendly. They manager told me she's trying to "clean house" as far as who stays there and who works there. The hotel is loud on weekend nights and some weekday nights as well. There is a party on almost every floor. The walls are very thin and you can hear almost everything going on in the rooms around you. If you are in the bathroom, you can hear people in the bathroom next to yours. There is no privacy when it comes to noise. As an example, one of my co-workers was in the room next to mine. We could talk to each other through the wall - no need to pick up the phone and call!

The hotel is in good repair and if there is a problem with your room, the maintenance man is very fast. The manager lives on site, and is available 24/7. (She came to the lobby to check in our group at 3am in her bathrobe.) They also have a security guard who walks around in the evenings.

If you are thinking about staying at this location, I would highly recommend that you call them and see how the changes went. Bear in mind, that my information is accurate as of Spring 2003. Once everything is cleaned-up, it will be a nice place to stay, even if the rooms are teeny tiny!  Until then, you might want to keep looking for another hotel.

I've stayed at this hotel a few times. I've given it more than a try. Here's what I can say: this hotel is conveniently located but not in a great neighborhood. A lot of the people who frequent it look like prostitutes, johns, dealers. It is okay and understandable that a hotel be worn down but its not okay for it to be dirty like the pubic hair in the sheet type of dirty.  Clean up your act.
