From start to the finish of our fort nights stay at this hotel was a pleasure. Extended stays may be classed as the cheaper end of the market compared to the ocean front properties in Fort Lauderdale however this hotel was everything we needed, clean, quiet even with the railroad and highways close by, nice pool, large room with kitchen and plenty of wardrobe space, great air con, free wifi which was fantastic, complimentary morning breakfast which consisted of tea, coffee, muffins, fruit, porridge and muesli bars. All the staff were absolutely fantastic and even tho we didn't need them often when we did the service was exceptional. We chose the hotel for the closeness to both the I95 and the train station which we used several times to see other areas at a very low price compared to uk train travel. The free car parking was also worth it's weight in gold, we stayed at the hilton on the beach last visit and the valet parking you had to have was $35 per day/night. This hotel may not be beach front but the nearest beach was 3.9 miles away at lauderdale by the sea so within ten minutes your on the loveliest beach. Some people commented on the lack of cleaning or that you have to pay extra however if your out all day then who needs extra cleaning, and if you need clean towels just ask the reception, the charge is for housekeeping in the room not for any items you want changing. Some people obviously are fussy but then why book a budget price hotel it's not the hilton but then again the staff here were far more helpful and pleasant compared to there so it depends what you want. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you have a car it is perfect for all amenities, and if like me you have been out all day driving and you want a beer at night then across the main road, a ten minute walk you have several eating places, shops and most are open late. If you want to stay in then the room had a recliner chair, desk and chair and a large flat screen tv, so beers in the fridge and it's home from home if you choose to chill out after a day of exploring. We were on floor 2 of 3 and had absolutely no noise issues as all rooms are carpeted and hallways too so no chairs squeeking on tiled floors etc. there is a gym of sorts for anyone if they want to work off all those large steaks and a couple of laundry rooms.The supermarkets and other shops are a ten minute drive if that so stock up when you arrive in the very large fridge freezer if you need to. If you don't have a car and your just looking for beach you need to be on ocean drive as taxis in Fort Lauderdale are extremely expensive as they charge by time on the meter I would strongly avoid them hence why we had the car for the whole fortnight this time, the cab drivers had very little knowledge and we found most to be ignorant and drive slowly pumping up the price, we travelled from the hilton to galleria mall which is probably 2/3 miles and it never came under $8 and one cab was $12 due to the wait on the bridge, we were going on a cruise so got a taxi there, perhaps 15 minutes it took normally but due to the bridge and traffic by the time the taxi arrive he had clocked up $42, on arrival this time we did the journey by car and it was 6 miles away. All in all this hotel was perfect for our needs, clean and friendly and if your fussy go pay $170 a night more and stay at the hilton with a charge for parking you car on top of that but at least you will have your sheets changed every other day or just have a bath / shower Every day then who needs the sheets changing , depends what you want and how clean you actually are, do you change your bedding every other day at home I don't think so!
