“Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort-Ocean Blvd”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

This place was a dump with a large conferdrate flag hanging out side. It was dirty and the beds were as hard as the floor.We killed a couple of bugs but we couldn't identify them.
We cut our stay short and found another place. I booked the wrong Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort. Try the one on Breakers Avenue.

Room Tip: Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort on Breakers Avenue!!

Thank you for your review ,We always strive to give our customers better service and quality to our patrons. unfortunately when you leave windows and doors open bugs will fly in, and just to let you know we are in our last dozen of completely remodeling our bathrooms, which should be finished this year around summer time. However I still don't understand why the Confederate flag was brought up which hangs in the bar area , just like a Jolly rogers flag , its a part of our Great American culture. No offense !

A group of us went to Ft. Lauderdale to do some deep sea fishing at the beginning of December. We needed a cheap clean place to use as the base of our trip. We got a great deal on the Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort Hotel through Hotels.com and figured we would give it a try. The hotel is older so it lacks some of the modern features of other hotels but it was clean and the staff was very friendly. Our room had a kitchenette in it and there was a grill by the pool so we were able to make some meals. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay that is clean and is close to the beach this is the place for you.

I wanted to base how I felt about this property by would I have been upset if I had brought other
Guests.....you get to stay here.......So some properties you need to hang around an access because it's just so nice, but when you stay elsewhere you get to eat, do attractions, shop,snack,
Keep gas in the car....This property allowed us to do this....I read other reviews ,there is nothing to add, it's true, it's not a resort, it is two blocks from the ocean, you can see the water, the property is clean,our room had a dusty allergic aroma we brought in scents,it was equipped with every need,
We ate breakfast an lunches in,an a really big dinner so cooking was not a problem, it appeared to be very family loads of them, no parking fee, an yes you should walk to the galleria, the pizza place in front of the building, an two mini stores hovering,an yes it's true the Staff is superb, so cheerful working doing the Holiday....our personal attendant was so there all the time we never had a need, This is an upscale extended stay! I hope the real resorts don't still the staff....location turns out to be everything....

Room Tip: Better ocean view the higher up you are, elevators are slow especially. Check-out....

My wife and I were spending a few days here for a brief vacation. I was reluctant to be here due to the reviews on this site. But, I was pleasantly surprised. This was a nice hotel or resort for the money. The public areas at this hotel were clean and nice. The staff that I encountered were all nice and friendly. The 1 room suite was large and comfortable. It was very nice. It was a quick walk to the beaches and restaurants. I look forward to another visit here.

I expected so much more...

1. pictures and staff said it was beachfront...only if you don't mind a 4 lane highway between property and beach.
2. staff said that the property had NCA Certified Concierges, then finding out she is there only one day during our week long stay, but that no concierge there otherwise continued the disappointment.
3. very small spa located in the back of the exercise facility.
4. service staff ranging from great to awful - the problem being service levels are random.
5. Eating places in hotel are understaffed, breakfast takes over an hour at a small restaurant only 50% occupied.
6. the food was edible but not good or what was expected.
bright spots? the limo team (VIP limo)

Room Tip: presidential suite was OK.

I recently stayed at this hotel the past weekend and I couldn't be more disappointed. First thing, there was a picture showing this hotel right across from the beach and this is a lie, it's a couple blocks from the beach. The room was not well maintained and the area was shotty. I was ultimately put over the top when I called down to tell them the toilet was clogged and they told me I would need to come get the plunger and unclog it myself. A random person banged on my door in the middle of the night claiming to be security and they were just drunk people from the tiki bar lost. The staff was not helpful, the hotel was not very good and the bathtub had dirty stains in it. The room was cheap but in the end, I would not stay here again.

The staff was all pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and quaint. It is an older property, but I expected exactly what we got based on the price. You can literally walk across the street to the beach and your within walking distance of places to eat/drink, etc. There is a small pool, very cold tho! There is a tiki bar on site with very stiff drinks for a good price which is a plus :) The continental breakfast was very cheap. You had a choice of toast and cornflakes and small muffins, anything "hot" was an extra charge and so was juice. I would stay here again tho!

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor above the pool and bar area, only heard some noise in the late hours o...
