“Great place for out of town cruisers”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed here the night before our cruise earlier this month. The hotel shuttle picked us up from the airport and we were able to enjoy a stress free night before we left for our cruise. The hotel also provided a free shuttle to port. The two shuttles were a big savings.

I am a travel agent, and we recently stayed here pre and post cruise (March 28/ April 6).
We had some glitches when checking in the first time, however we were very early and it was very crowded as it was cruise shuttle departure time. We don't sweat the small stuff.
Both times they were able to accommodate us for early checkin, which not all hotels can or will do, so who can complain? :)
The front desk staff Karen was very personable and accommodating and took very good care of us on both stays, as did the Manager Cierra (sp?). Both were fantastic assets to the hotel.
The only negative thing I have to say about our stay would be about the Shuttle Driver - Joaquin. He was very surly and had quite an attitude. When we were picked up at the airport on arrival, we didn't have a problem w/ him - but some other arriving guests couldn't find the shuttle and he had to circle around the airport again and return to find them - he was rude and gave them major attitude because he said 'I was here, I picked them up and you weren't here'; he repeated that a few times I guess he expected them to apologize for his inconvenience or something. They took it well and just got on the shuttle as most weary travelers will.
On our return to the airport - we experienced a problem with him. We had an 830 pickup scheduled and sat in the lobby from 8am on.
He came rolling in about 825 - never announced the shuttle and then disappeared to get a bigger bus for the next trip, since there was a bigger group. He never stopped to call for 830 shuttle so my traveling companion went to speak to Karen and told her we (along w/ some other people) were waiting for him and would he be back? We couldn't wait until 9am for the shuttle.

He came back with attitude and a bigger shuttle and called for the airport. When my traveling companion asked him - he said "Oh, I called 8:30 shuttle and nobody came". Outright lie; he came in, looked at the list and disappeared. The other guys on the bus agreed when we all got on.
I think this hotel should look into finding someone who likes his job, or has better customer service skills. He is a not an asset to the hotel, and I could see people not returning due to being verbally abused and intimidated by him.

My wife and I recently stayed here after winning a priceline express deal. The free pickup from the airport was an easy phone call from the courtesy phone located in baggage clam at the airport. The free ride from the airport to the hotel was in a newer medium size bus that was easy to board. Our luggage was placed in a trailer by the driver. Upon arrival the driver retrieved our luggage from the trailer. Check in was a breeze with the staff being very nice. Upon check in the desk clerk asked if we would need transportation to the cruise terminal. The sign ups for the free transportation to the cruise terminal was easy.

The hotel property is located in a safe area with minimal if any local foot traffic.

The room was clean and free of any odors. The bistro in the lobby served hot starbucks coffee! Sipping the coffee poolside in the evening was very relaxing.

In the morning, check out was a breeze. We had the first time slot available (10am) to go to the cruise terminal. The lobby was busy with guests who appeared to be cruisers mostly going. The courtesy shuttle (the same bus from the airport) was easy to board as your luggage is placed in the trailer. The shuttle takes guests to any of the terminals at Port Everglades. While waiting for the other guests who were going to the cruise terminal, there was a rep from All Star transportation in the lobby selling transportation from the cruise terminal to the airport ($11pp).

I would use this hotel again. I think the hotel would be great for anyone staying in the area. If your a cruiser the hotel is perfect! Free easy transportation from the airport and to the cruise terminals! A great restaurant (pretty much on site, Islemorada Fish Co) the lobby bistro that serves quick bites and small breakfasts and a handful of takeout menus in the room. The hotel has a lot to offer for the money you pay.

After 14 hours of bad service with the airline we arrived in on, the staffs friendliness and the convenience of this hotel was refreshing. We called the hotel for our free shuttle and were picked up within 10 minutes by Dana, who packed 9 people with tons of luggage into her van, extremely fast! Once we arrived at the hotel, we found out that the free cruise shuttle does not bring us to the port of Miami, where our cruise departs from. This would be the only thing I would suggest, make sure your travel agent knows this! This was by no fault of the hotel and Megan and Dana were very concerned and helpful. Even though our departure was further away than expected, we were happy to stay at this location. The rooms were immaculate, bathrooms were very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable! Because of the staff in this hotel, front desk and the cleaning staff combined, this vacation was perfect. We recommend staying here for any occasion!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the non-train side!

We stayed here before leaving for a cruise and then again after the cruise. The staff was great about early check ins and late check outs to accommodate our travel plans. They have a shuttle to and from the airport and to the cruise port. Everything was very easy and stress free! We would highly recommend staying here especially if you are a cruiser! Also the bass pro shop is right next door and their restaurant is very good!

Neatly tucked away in a small commercial center with adjoining shopping facilities. Used extensively by cruise passengers boarding in Fort Lauderdale and boating enthusiasts (my purpose - several marinas in vicinity). Friendly and courteous staff. Rooms are a bit small but have all the amenities for short stays. Lobby restaurant offers simple meals. Parking is ample. Very close to tri-station stop. Have stayed there several times and it has now become my preferred location when I am in that area.
