I stayed at this hotel because I arrived in ft lauderdale two nights before I was to check in to a timeshare. I for one am somewhat of a hotel snob so I was weary of the motel style. I had the small two bed room but I later noticed that there are much larger/nicer rooms available. The people that work there are very friendly and pleasant. Free beach chairs and umbrellas which was wonderful. If you want high class this is not the place for you. If you want something cheap and right on the water...go for it.

We were relocated here after finding out that the reservation we made at one of this company's other hotels sold us a room they didn't have. We were told this place was better. I hope that was just BS. The desk staff was very friendly. The room would be fine and a good value if it were better maintained. It took several tries to get the key to work. Paint falling off everywhere, warm (not hot) water, and the bathroom light switch was faulty. You had to have McGuyver like skills if you didn't want to pee in the dark. Magazine rack in the bathroom was in pieces...take it down already. The icing on the cake, a giant hair that didn't belong to either of us. On a more positive note, it was a long one.

I posted a review before and it looks like it was taken down. Luckily my pictures are still on the site and you can see for yourself what a disgusting roach motel this place actually is. I want to start by saying that when we returned home my fiancé got sick and I am pretty sure it was due to the uncleanliness of this place.
The room looked nothing at all like the pictures. It was absolutely filthy and completely run down. The sheets had stains, there was mold in the bathroom, the window was cracked, the blinds did not keep out the sunlight, and the floor was covered in dirt.
When we first walked into the room we immediately walked back down to the front desk and attempted to cancel our reservation. The girl, who seemed high or something, told us there was a 72 hour cancellation policy and she could not refund our money. We even called our credit card company and they told us they would have to dispute the charges. Since this was a busy weekend in Ft. Lauderdale and there were not many available rooms elsewhere, we decided to suck it up.
Looking back, I would have gladly taken the risk of disputing the charge. This place ruined our vacation. We barely got any sleep because at 7am every day the sun would come glaring through the broken blinds. My fiancé got sick and had to take a day off from work to visit her doctor which was probably because of the filthy shower or dirty toilet seat.
I wanted to take the time to post this so that other people do not get scammed like we did. Please avoid this place at all costs. This may potentially be the worst hotel in all of Ft Lauderdale. Any positive review on yelp or any other travel website is most surely fake. BUYER BEWARE!

1/2 block from the ocean, free sand chairs, boogie boards & sand toys provided. Old-style Floridian decor. Kitchen and dining room. Sharing lending library. Coffee in the morning. Near good restaurants. Great, friendly staff. In January, peak season....our travel agent scored a deal for us at $100 a night.....!!!! Does it get any better?
Now, this place is not for you if you are looking for the swanky high end (and absolutely colorless and personality less Hyatt/Marriott/Sheraton)....which I stay at a lot too! This is a fun place to kick back and enjoy yourself and go to the beach and have a short walk back. Close to the Water Taxi as well.
