What more can I say than crisp, clean, and refreshing! Nice place to relax a block off the beach! We found the service very accommodating and the aesthetics characteristic if the Southern Florida experience we have come to expect. Two pools are an added bonus as well as comfortable outdoor space! We will be back soon!

We stayed here over mlk weekend in a 1 bedroom suite. Everything was clean and modern and we appreciated the stocked kitchen and proximity to the beach. Parking was $10 per day and was ample. A shout out to Maggie who made our stay comfortable.

My partner and I stayed at the aqua hotel for one night before a cruise. The hotel is quite, and clean. It is mostly outdoor (walking paths not hallways). It was a little difficult to bring our luggage in because we had to roll it through grass but it was manageable. Parking overnight was $10 I think. There were two...

I was in Ft Lauderdale for 2 nights as the last destination of my 14-days trip around Florida and Bahamas. So this was the last hotel I experienced on this trip and absolutely got me disappointed. The room was extremely small, the bed absolutely not comfortable with a way too soft mattress, the toilet didn't work properly and the bathroom...

Been here numerous times and of course would come back again. What's not to like: clean, tropical apartments two blocks from a world famous beach. Walking distance to restaurants, stores and state park. Even public transit friendly if not wanting a rental car. Perhaps though things seem to be a little less appealing if that's the right word. There's slight...

Nice stay, very good location to all the activity. Nice pool and hotel rooms. Good tv too. Food was great at the sister hotel but just wish they could have offered something on site. I would stay there again.

We should have been staying at another hotel but our booking was messed up -but I'm glad it was -as we would never have found this place. Maggie is wonderful she sorted us a room out which was clean and comfortable. We only stayed 1 night as we were going on a cruise. Maggie recommended at great place to eat...

This is a throwback hotel - a 50s-style, two-story property that is well kept and convenient to the beach, to restaurants and to the main thoroughfare in Fort Lauderdale. The employees are friendly and Maggie, the proprietor, is welcoming and has a great personality!

Was surprised to find this well-priced gem just a block from the beach. Great location. Spacious and well-appointed room. Friendly staff. The pool area is great and towels are provided. Parking is $10/day.

We were heading out on a cruise and being from the Midwest, wanted to get out a day ahead of time in case of bad weather. We booked a night at the Aqua for our day in Ft. Lauderdale. We really liked it! First of all, it's a boutique hotel and a classic mid-century building. Love the history and being...
