Our flight from Ft. Lauderdale was cancelled on a Thursday evening due to weather. 200 people scrambling to find a hotel for the night. We went onto hotels.com and found this hotel. The couple next to us was busy booking the Sheraton for twice the price.
The hotel was 10 minutes away by taxi, $8 fare to get there.
Its a small hotel near the airport. Not fancy but wholly adequate for our needs. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed incredibly comfortable with soft sheets and covers and good pillows. There was even a little room off the main room with bunk beds in case you had to put up kids. The bathroom had a shower which was fine, the towels were soft. The Wi Fi worked perfectly, the tv had cable. The front desk was incredibly helpful, they gave us menus since we had already returned our rental car so we ordered dinner in which was just fine. The next morning at 6 a.m. they had a continental breakfast just in time for our taxi to pick us up at 6:30 a.m. to go back to the airport. We were overall very pleasantly surprised. We met the same couple from the night before who spent twice the money we spent to stay at the Sheraton. We were just as clean and rested as they were, and, money ahead.
