Location is excellent - right on the beach, within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and bars. Two great outdoor pools. I stayed in a one bedroom which was immaculate. The staff are very attentive, kind and caring. This was my second stay at the Windjammer and many more will be planned in the future.

Location, location, location! On the beach, convenient to town (within walking distance), many terrific restaurants, ice cream shops. Friday night live bands in town....... Best thing about Windjammer is the many friends we've made there and cleanliness! Not many places offer maid service daily, but Windjammer does!

Thank you for the post! Our return guests year after year who make our "newbie" guests feel welcome is what sets us apart. Guests arrive as strangers but leave as friends. We appreciate your pointing that out in your comments, thank you again for the kind words.

First impressions are the most important. Shenise at the front desk was so accommodating that we kept extending our stay. Overall staff was excellent and the overall property was in mint condition. We will be back.

We'd discovered the Windjammer a couple of years ago, and this is the first year they had availability on dates that worked for us. We booked Unit 16, and LOVED it. I don't see any way to improve on this location. Staff were wonderful. Ebony kept our unit spotless. All of the comforts of home, and just steps from the...

Very nice place with a small town motel feel, but right next to the beach. The employees were the best. The room was basically a small apartment. Even though they did not have a restaurant or bar like bigger place, there was no need with plenty of bars, restaurants, shops, and the pier within about a five minute walk.

We traveled to Lauderdale by the Sea with our 3-year-old, and Windjammer was everything we were looking for: on the beach, two heated pools, and walking distance to restaurants and a grocery store. The friendly staff keeps the entire hotel and grounds impeccably clean. Our room appeared to be recently (and tastefully) renovated and our housekeeper, Ebony, came every day...

Had a great suite on the ocean, full kitchen and all of our needs were met and then some. I cooked three large meals and had everything that I needed, even a toaster and SALT!!! So totally pleased. All of the employees were sharp, and caring and FUN.

Overall, Windjammer is a great bargain right on the beach and so close to so many restaurants and bars. I didn't even need to rent a car and was easily able to walk everywhere. It was about a mile walk to the grocery store by Walgreens is just across the street. You can not beat LBTS as a solo traveler,...
