I stayed on a Friday until Sunday to attend the Landmark Forum Advance course.I live in Miami ,but didn't want to have to strut home after 9 hours of steady course hours.The room was exactly my style very classy (Key westy) old Florida. The price was fantastic; staff was very helpful and nice; great pillows and bed, clean, The shower pressure was out of this world great! thick towels, Totally bug free. Microwave and refrigerator, coffee in room. many television channels, ceiling fan plus wall air conditioner kept it very quiet and my room was right to the street on the second floor.free parking.I can go on about how safe an comfortable I was...But your gonna have to discover it for yourself :)

We liked this quirky motel , good position, walkable to las olas boulevard . Really clean, and Chuck the manager was really helpful, telling us where to go. The only thing is it was right next to the highway, not a problem if you wear earplugs , which were in fact, in the reception area!

I like this motel. It isn't big, quite small, yet, comfortable and quiet. Basic cable, wifi, shower stall in bathroom, near busline, if you are able to walk a mile to 3 miles, there is a Starbucks nearby, a FreshMarket (Wholefoods), nearby, a handful of Hispanic restaurants, there is a gym down the street, although I don't know why one would want it down there, but that gym was busy when I walked passed it.

What more can you ask for in a good value hotel?

The room was spotlessly clean with a comfy bed and good linen. A small fridge and microwave were pretty handy - there was a big TV showing the usual american junk and the WIFI was quick and reliable.

The bathroom was a little 'bijou' but perfectly appointed - with good toileteries - and the shower was hot and powerful... great.

The location isn't bad at all- OK it's on a busy road, but we didn't hear it - You can walk to Las Olas in about 15mins for dinner or drinks. Or drive there in about 2 mins if you are very lazy.

Chuck, the owner/manager was very friendly and helpful - he gave some good recommendations on where to eat and what to do, even which route we should take on our drive up the coast.

Overall a great value place and would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I recently visited Florida and wanted to spend a couple of nights in Fort Lauderdale. We booked the Tropicana Motel for two nights based on Trip Advisor saying that the accomodations were clean, beds comfortable and area was secure, plus Chuck and Robert that work there were exceptionally nice and helpful. Trip Advisor comments were right on. The Tropicana is an older 60's style in design motel. But don't let that put you off. It is centrally located, near services, restaurants and shopping. Rooms are simple, but clean. TV, Wi-Fi, frig, and micro wave....everything we needed. Chuck and Robert were super helpful, always willing to give directions and suggestions which we really appreciated. We wound up staying 6 nights and will return again on our next visit!

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying in the rooms nearer the office. Street noise was not a factor.
