“We do not recommand”
Reviewed 27 April 2012 via mobile

The good things, it is really close to the airport and the manager was very nice. We came in at the happy hour and got a free drink. What else? The room was quite damaged and dirty. There was long hairs in the shower and drops did come out of the shower all night, we could not fix it.

So, for a short sleep before flying back home, it is okay. But not for more.

I just needed a basic place to sleep so i could catch an early flight the next morning and this was the most affordable motel in Fort Lauderdale via hotels.com. I expected it to be.. well.. average. What i discovered was a small, independent, American-owned motel that had tons of charm and whose owners obviously cared a great deal about their business.

The rooms had little decorating touches that you truly don't see too often in the cookie-cutter world of discount motels. It wasn't fancy, but everything was clean and freshly painted. The bed was SUPER comfy. The owners host a 'happy hour' around 6pm on the patio in front of the hotel, and i had one of the most relaxing evenings in a long time. Great conversation with the complimentary happy hour drinks :) When's the last time you did that at a Motel 6 or Comfort Suites?

I will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to my friends who want a budget-friendly place to stay in Fort Lauderdale.

My wife booked this motel based upon "value". There were three couples staying here in preparation for going on a "once in a life time" cruise. The rooms were hot, the AC didn't cool, we had to clean off the AC filters of about 1/2 inch of dirt, the carpet was dirty, the bathtub and showers were worse than the ones i used in the bush of Africa last month, the sheets had yellow stains, need I say more? The owner assured my wife they had been remodeling the place. Hmmm! I guess they had not started that process yet! They sure need to get started though. The only UP SIDE was the staff. He was very nice! We arrived in Ft Lauderdale at 11:00 PM and finally found a great hotel a block away for $50 more. IT was well worth the money. I lost my payment for two rooms for that night but we GLADLY spent more money for a room we could actually feel comfortable about staying in.

Room Tip: Go to the Crown Plaza instead of this place

Stayed for just one night, before flying out the next day. Found hotel from Hotels.com and although was a bit skeptical decided to try it. The location is fine but the hotel itself is easy to miss, I drove right past it.
Check-in was a snap and the owner was very friendly. Got to the room and was surprised at how small it was but could see that they'd tried to do some updates. The carpet is pretty nasty though so make sure to keep your shoes on. Bathroom is tiny too, but this building was built in the late 30's so the size is understandable.
All in all the motel is fine, but I wouldn't stay for longer than one night.

I travel a lot and never had run across this hotel on Hotels.com before. Gave it a shot and it was just really, really nice. Clean room, great price, the staff are over-the-top in friendliness and service.

This is a great place to stay for one night or if you need to be near the airport. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. When you check in, they give you a free drink including beer. There is free breakfast and free internet service.
The rooms are a little small and the pull out couch in our room was broken.
Overall, this is a great place for the price you pay but it's not a place to vacation in.

Haven Hotel is located in the heart of one of America's favorite vacation playgrounds; Sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

This major thoroughfare, known as US-1, consists of eight lanes today and old Federal Highway is a quiet side street. The hotel has also seen some changes since the thirties. Major renovations were completed in the last years, updating the entire building and its interior, adding modern technology, such as free Wireless Internet and digital cable television to the charm of old Fort Lauderdale.
