We stayed in room 115 with our two teenage sons for two nights. The room was nicely appointed and 2 bathrooms were great for a family of four! We had a partial view of the intercoastal waterway and pool. I felt the room was very private and the location of the hotel nicely situated. The beach is a five minute walk (at most), the pool area is inviting, and the dock is fun to watch boat traffic or just relax. The staff are gracious and courteous.
The bed in the main room was extremely comfortable, and while the bathroom is small, it has ample shelving space and readily meets one's needs. The shower is a one person deal. The other bathroom was a bit larger with a tub/shower. The bath towels were generous in size and soft. Bath robes are provided for all.
The boys made due with a pull out sofa and we planned to bring an extra sleeping bag/mattress but forgot. The two don't like to sleep with each other and no roll aways are provided. They figured it out!
It's nice to have a fridge in the room but a coffee maker would have been nice. Coffee is served in the morning by the front desk up until 10 am (I believe).
This is our second visit to Lauderdale and we found this hotel very accommodating. The pricing of the room was better than other places, meaning not paying for two separate rooms. There is no additional charge for parking.
There is a cute little pub/bar nearby......Casa Alahambra (sp?) and while we did not eat there, the plates looked very nice. We stopped for a drink. We walked about 10-15 minutes to a place called Coconuts for dinner one night. Some great entrees as well as appetizers. It is pet friendly.
