This is a sweet little 'mom & pop' motel along Ocean Blvd in Ft. Lauderdale. The rooms are standard motel rooms, but extremely clean and very comfortable. Two double beds, along with a small table and two side chairs, a refrigerator/freezer, microwave and coffeemaker are provided in the standard room. There was even a medicine cabinet in the bathroom, which made it very easy to store and use toiletries. For a longer stay, you might want to consider an efficiency apartment. Motel staff was very friendly and welcoming. A minor issue was resolved immediately, with a smile!
We didn't plan to use the available pool, so the fact that we had no idea where to find it wasn't an issue. I'm sure we would have received prompt and courteous directions had we asked. We asked for and received ground floor rooms since we were traveling with my elderly parents. In more seasonable weather, the lovely little courtyard would have been nice to spend time in. If we have the occasion to go back to the area, we would definitely stay there again.

I loved this place. I gave it a five star, not because it is a four seasons type property-far from it! It is a modest motel across the street from the beaches. You have to walk several blocks for beach access or you can go to a hotel a couple of blocks away and access the beach there (I did this and ate there and got a manicure so no guilt as I used the facilities).

The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was so clean I would have eaten off the floor, really! The beds were firm and very comfortable. The room was well maintained and freshly painted.

I have stayed at a lot of high end places, don't need to as I am pretty low maintenance myself. This was a place I would definitely go back to. I got a terrific rate of about $50 a night. It is in a safe and quiet neighborhood. It is not romantic and if I had small kids I would not want the walk to the beach but for me and my husband for a place to stay relatively close to the airport and the beach, it was great.

Recently stayed here for two weeks. Booked with Michael over phone, not sure of arrival date, called from road with final booking. When arrived, promised room was ready and immaculate. Everyone in the office was very friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the area. Pool was clean and enjoyable. Laundry room was clean and reasonably priced. All sheets, bedding, and carpets cleaned regularly in separate laundry room. Staff and maintenance people friendly and attentive. If you want a reasonably priced motel where the staff cares about the property and the clients this the place to go in Ft. Lauderdale. Will definitely stay there again when in the region.

Room Tip: For long stays, efficiency with kitchens for only $10 extra are a great bargain.

Clean place with great staff. Rooms are clean and spacious. The common areas are very well kept. Great pool and very close to shooping areas. Right across from a Winn Dixie Super Market and CVS pharmacy. Will definately stay again.

Nice clean family owned motel. Experience Lauderdale how it used to be. A terrific value. We wound up staying three nights and was expecting to stay one. Lots of things to do in a short drive. Highly recommended for the budget traveler.
