Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We had a fantastic stay:-) it's a modern Scandinavian like hotel with IKEA interior. But it's cool and comfortable. Great location close to beach and with a nice pool. Friendly staff:-) the price was very fair compared to hotels in Fort Myers etc.

My family of four stayed here in late April. Danielle in the office was very friendly and helpful in giving recommendations. The two queen bed-room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was clean and the shower was a good size (no tub).

The walls are really thin. We could here the couple next door talking. All was quiet after 9pm, but I could see noise being a problem if you were near late-nighters.

As we came back from dinner around 9pm, a couple was trying to check in but the office was locked and no one was around. I'm not sure what their office hours for check in are, though we had to leave at 6am for our flight and were asked to drop the key (old school actual key) in a drop box.

While leaving at 6am, a security guard said hello. It was nice to see security on patrol. The hotel is off the main strip so not as much traffic, but walking distance to the beach and restaurants if you don't mind a little walk.

We didn't use the pool but it looked nice, as did the grounds. We would stay here again. Good value.

This hotel has a big problem, no insulation whatsoever between rooms or floors. My room was so noisy I could not sleep. When someone walks upstairs is like a set of drums being played. I could also hear conversations next door like I was there with them. Unless you are one of those than can sleep no matter what, I suggest you stay elsewhere.

I stayed at this hotel in March 2014, during spring break season. It was clean, and there was enough parking spots also. As far as location, it was right off of the main beach where everybody would hang out for spring break.

We were pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem. We stayed here the Sunday after our 7 day Norwegian cruise. We arrived around 11:00. We figured that we wouldn't be able to check in. We were wrong. She immediately took us to our room. We had hoped to go to the beach, but it was a downpour all day. The room was great. We had a microwave and refrigerator. We had to go to a separate area for ice, but that was no problem! The TV was great. It had a wonderful picture. People had complained on trip advisor about the thin walls. We had no problem. It was quiet our whole stay. We will definately stay here on our next trip to Fort Lauderdale !

Fab fab room . 2queen beds. Big fridge oven top and microwave. Our room 500 was at the back of the hotel in the zen garden. Helpful staff. Free wifi. Pool towels , great pool area and even a BBQ area. A few blocks back from the sea front in a nice peaceful area. Would definitely recommend.

After consulting the reviews on trip advisor we booked a stay at beach gardens. It seemed to be the better choice of all the other local hotels with in the same price range. ($150 a night) We made a request for a second floor room based on reviews about noise. They gave us a great room right at the front corner. Rm 200. The walls are thin. The neighbor coughed all night but the good news is our room was a corner room so only one neighbor and tons of windows and natural light. Everything is brand new and the kitchen is stocked with everything you might need, besides food. :) I was so happy with this choice. The security/ check in guy is super friendly and hospital. His name was Richard. It seems to be a very relaxed and breezy place. Perfect for the friend vacay!
