“Rusty Water”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Both hot and cold water were rusty colored. Desk clerk when told responded "... Southern Florida." No help at all. Hard to get out of parking lot because of traffic and visibility to curved street. Breakfast was typical . Location was good. but I would NOT stay here again.

We have stayed at a couple of places in Ft. Lauderdale before a cruise. This one is okay. $5 charge for the shuttle from the airport but they said it would take 25 - 30 minutes to pick us up and they were right. Some people at the shuttle pick up spot said they have been waiting 2 hours. Not sure why they didn't take a taxi. Google or Bing shows a restaurant in front of the motel. Closed. Pool bar was also closed by the time we got there. However the Ale House (another review) is up the street and there is an Irish pub around the corner. Hotel buffet breakfasts have never been too good so we went to the Original Pancake House, next door to the Ale House. Don't bother (another review). Check out time is 11:00 and we had to wait until 1:00 for the port shuttle. Pool bar didn't open until about 12:30 but that is where you will be waiting for the shuttle. They could have re-opened the breakfast area but didn't. Front desk staff was a little surly. I walked about a mile down the road and there is nothing furniture and mattress stores on this section of the Federal Hwy. Ale House is pretty good so just go there.

This hotel was very clean and comfortable, and conveniently located to Highway #1. Staff were helpful and friendly. Great place to stay while we visited the Florida Keys. I would definitely stay there again.

Needed a place for the night near the Mai Kai Dinner Show... This is our 2nd stay here. Room was large, clean, functional, and the room with the upgraded bedding was worth the extra 15$. Nicer than the beds at the expensive chains. We just crashed for the night, so didn't use the pool/bar area here, has a nice kept up vintage feel as this place looks to be from the 60's. Breakfast area was popular (full) so get their earlier. For those taking cruises, they have a shuttle to pick up guests from the airport and later drop off at the cruise terminal, which is nice. Don't miss the nearby Mai Kai for dinner!

We stayed one night following a cruise and booked 6 rooms. The property itself was nice, clean etc. but the staff lacked in customer service. We had arranged for the shuttle to the airport upon check-out--however there was much confusion when it came time for us to be shuttled. The staff finally called a van/taxi, which upon arrival, couldn't accomodate our group. All in all it was a confusing, unorganized mess. Others waiting for shuttle to the cruiseport and airport also experienced the same situation. If you stay here, do NOT rely on their "free shuttle".

this was not available even though I made reservations 4-5 months ahead of time. The price was very high for not receiving room requested. I believe we should have been notified that a handicapped room was not available so we could have made reservations at another hotel.

WE stayed night before cruise and one night after. Further away from cruise port but worth it. Very clean hotel, nice, helpful staff. They do offer a shuttle to airport and cruise port. When returning to hotel from either there is a long wait. We took a taxi, $27 from airport and $24 from cruise port
