“You get what you pay for.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2009

To start, I visit this hotel many times during the year. I continue to frequent it because it is in a good location, decent price and is reasonably maintained.

The problem is with the staff. The have never been particularly helpful. And when I say "helpful" I actually mean "nice, courteous, professional, etc. This applies to everyone, from the front desk, to the kitchen and the housekeeping.

For the same price, you can stay at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and be walking distance from the beach. The people at LBTS are much more friendly. The only reason I didn't stay there for my most recent visit was due to the holiday. Hotels on the beach will be more costly around Christmas. But if you are traveling in the off season, this hotel is much better, although it is a little further from Hollywood.

The Sleep Inn is so-so. I would recommend it for a a couple nights stay, but no longer than that. The pool is nice, but it is shaded almost completely, so don't think about working on your tan. Breakfast is better than some, but it is terribly cramped trying to navigate your way through all the foods.

Let me start by saying the staff here was really good and helpful. I stayed five nights here because the rate was too good to pass up. My rating should really be a 3.5. It's a nice clean property, close to the beach, the airport and the cruise port. Due to a mix up I got a suite instead of just a room and it was satisfactory, but nothing really special. The bed was OK, and the work area was very good. The bathroom was large and had a very spacious vanity. The food in the breakfast room was sort of ordinary. By the third day I was going out for breakfast. The pool was nice, and the whirlpool was indeed hot, but the jets didn't work most of the time I was there...a rather small, petty point. However, I think the pool area closes too early at 9 PM. People were generally being quiet out in the pool area, and it would probably be OK to leave it open until 10 PM, at least. This is a better than average Sleep Inn, and would recommend it. They offer courtesy van service to the airport.

  • Liked — The staff
  • Disliked — It just missed the mark for being given a 4-star rating...hard to put my finger on just why.

I went to Florida to visit family . My flight would be landing around midnight, too late to have family make the hour drive to the airport so I decided to book a rooom.

I chose Sleep Inn and Suites because they offered a free hot breakfast and had a shuttle. Well, the shuttle doesn't run after 11.00..so I had to take a taxi...Not Bad..it was only $12.00.

Now the lobby is really nice and updated. They do have a computer available, but charge by the minute...BTW...The Sleep In in Lakeland FL doesn't charge to use their computers.

Was I shocked to see the room On the whole, I'm not a picky person BUT....the furniture was scuffed up. The sofa had a huge 8" soiled spot on it..yuk Overall the room was fairly clean, but have been in much cleaner hotel rooms. Besides the scuffed up furniture, everything in the room was very outdated.

Remember, I primarily chose this hotel because of the free hot breakfast......the waffles were fine, but the pancake syrup had been watered down....just maple water.... So I decided to fix a bagel and put some cream cheese on it. Well, to my surprise, the cream cheese was "cream cheese spread" it was disgusting.. The gravy in the crock pot looked like it had been there for a week. No one was using it...

So next time I'll go back to the Holiday Inn...so much nicer for about the same price and eat out for breakfast

Please don't rate all Sleep Inn and Suites by this review. I've stayed in very nice ones in Florida.

We stayed at the Sleep Inn in Dania for the Air and Sea Show Weekend and the hotel looked brand new. We checked in and everything looked new and clean. We got room (311) and it was very spacious and clean. The bathroom was very clean, and so was the whole room, the beds were a little hard but ok for 2 nights. The continental breakfast was very good and had eggs and waffles. The only problem was that the lady working the breakfast was just very rude and had a horrible attitude. But thats the only complaint. I would stay again if in the area though.

We stayed here before a cruise in Miami. The Sleep Inn was nice because they had a shuttle from the airport. The continental breakfast was above average. There were eggs, oatmeal, fruit, cereal, waffles, bagels, danish, juice, coffee, tea etc. The pool and hot tub were clean. The hotel provided towels for the pool. The rooms were also clean. Not the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in however it was worth the price I paid off of expedia. Under $100 for a sunday night in april.

Stayed April 2008

An Okay hotel for a stopover before a cruise and after. Continental breakfast served from 6:30 ,but miss it as transfer takes you early at 5:30am. No hotel transfer if you arrive after 11 pm. We did not know and had to call Sleep Inn and they wouldn't come get us as it was after 11 pm. We took a cab, it cost us 20 dollars from the Discovery port. FYI

  • Liked — Transfer to ship, continental breakfast
  • Disliked — Transfer by their own hours at hotel, and miss the breakfast due to early transfer to ship
