Reviewed 23 January 2011

Inexpensive motel, with that being said its not the best quality but it is okay. Staff is very friendly, cable tv, microwave, small fridge, coffee maker. Let us check in at 11am. Location isn't great because too far to walk to main attractions (mall, restaurants, etc).

Got this hotel through Hot Wire and the price was not that cheap. We were hoping for a decent stay since the reviews here were mostly positive. Well, it turned out to be our worst motel experience ever. We are world travelers and have been traveling frequently, and I can honestly say that this one was absolutely the worst. I basically fled from this place.

1. Worst customer service - the hotel staff Chris was a total joke. He ignored us at 3 different times because he was so into talking on the phone instead of helping his customers. He made us wait between 5-10 minutes each time at check-in, check-out and breakfast (door was locked and he wouldn't come to the door to open it because he was on the phone). Why he couldn't just put the phone on hold and take care of us is beyond me. There is also supposed to be another motel staff (Mia?), and she never came out to help when he was busy on the phone.
2. Room - the first one he checked us into had a toilet that wouldn't flush. The second one we moved into with a phone that does not have a dial tone. We just gave up after that and stayed put.
3. Closet - smells like something died in it. Moldy and stinky. We couldn't put anything in it.
4. Bed - lumpy and uneven. The foot of the bed is higher than the head of the bed.
5. Sheets - we found other people's hair on the sheets.
6. When we checked in at 5:15 pm, there was nothing in the office that shows a "happy hour". We had to ask before Chris offered ONE can of soda for the two of us to share.
7. The breakfast only had 3 things to choose from: packaged donnetts like those from the vending machine, fresh fruits (not peeled or anything, just whole oranges and bananas), and some type of breakfast bars. The coffee pot was empty. No milk and cereal or danish. I have been to many motels at 2-star rating with much decent selections. We basically left witout eating anything.

To me, this is truly the worst motel ever. I think we were really unfortunate to have gotten this motel from Hot Wire.

Highly recommended budget hotel. The rates are the best we have found in Ft Lauderdale for clean and secure accomodation at under $70 per night. Staff are excellent. The continental breakfast is good and the evening happy hour is another bonus. It is a $12 to $15 taxi trip from the airport and this hotel also has an inexpensive daily shuttle to the cruise ship terminal. Free internet and free USA calls in every room. This was our third stay at America's Best Inn in south Ft Lauderdale.

Great place to stay for an overnight if you need to catch a flight or a cruise. Clean rooms. Good service. No shuttle however taxi to the port or airport will cost you about $10.

When I booked this room, I asked for a room with two beds and airport shuttle. This place had one bed which was broken and sloped to one side which caused us to toss and turn all night. No airport shuttle and way too much traffic noise. The rental car lot behind our room had high intensity lighting which invaded our room even with the blinds drawn. The floor was filthy and to use the toilet you basically had to squeeze between the sink and toilet. How this place has an America's Best endorsement is beyond belief. I think they should have their affiliation revoked. STAY AWAY!! Pay the extra money and go to another hotel near the airport.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Haven Hotel is located in the heart of one of America's favorite vacation playgrounds; Sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This historical Haven Hotel was built in 1937 as a road side motel on Federal Highway, a two lane road between Port Everglades and the International Airport. 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. If you're vacationing on one of the 3,000-plus cruises leaving Port Everglades annually, no other hotel can provide lodging closer to both airport and cruise terminal, just .5 miles from the Fort Lauderdale International Airport and .3 miles from Port Everglades. A family run hotel where the customer’s needs come first. ... more   less
