“A nice surprise.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We stayed at this hotel while attending the guiness ICC in Miami. We were immediately greeted and welcomed. The room was amazing for the price, especially since we had always spent more for less. Even the next day, people who had only seen us for a moment, immediately greeted us like no time had passed at all. If I am ever in this area again, I most certainly will be returning to this hotel.

we reserved this room as a laison between the airport and the port, and it turned out to be an excellent choice. The room itself is equipped with a kitchenette; there are free laundry facilities and a tiny gym on the first floor, plus free coffee, and a great shopping center on the opposite street. The airport shuttle was on time, and quick. the port shuttle was a great value at $8, and the driver MIKE was funny and helpful. As a Holiday Inn member, we received a voucher for the brreakfast at the HIE next door, which was delightful. Also we were able to eat a quick snack at Subway across the street, and pick up water and other incidentals in Winn Dixie for the SHIP. The staff was bright and accommodating , and the elevator was never busy . My only complaint was the gazebo in the back of the hotel was a bit unkept, and i did not ever see a security guard. I am very aware of security measures, and i found this element lacking. Otherwise this was a brillant little place, and i would recommend it highly.

We decided to book a room prior to our cruise vacation. This hotel is only 2 miles away from the cruise port. This hotel was clean and comfortable. All rooms come fully equipped with a kitchen area. This establishment is peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed our stay.

The hotel seemed to be nice at first with the free laundry services, gym, and even the room. My issue came in with the terrible internet service and the guard on the thermostat that kept the A/C at 70 degrees. We were unable to make it any cooler, even in the middle of the Summer heat.

In addition, we were here for over a week and never once had maid service. I was expected to empty my own trash, make my own bed, exchange my own towels, and all other responsibilities that you expect accommodations to handle.

The Holiday Inn that shares a parking lot with the Candlewood suites may be a better option.

What a great room and value! There is not much to do around the hotel if you like Thai food check out Thai 84! My r room was clean and large and up to date. The bed was extremely comfortable I had a wonderful night sleep. I definitely recommend staying here!

I checked in on 6/28/14 and there was a roach in the first room I was assigned. I moved to another room and it appeared to be ok. When I returned home, there was a dead German cockroach that fell from my child's luggage. My family had to empty our suitcases outside and shake out every single item.

I have orthopedic problems and have a disabled placard for my car. I went to the store and came back and a staff member who drives a Honda had the parking space. I did not see a handicap license plate, nor placard hanging from the window.

The items that are for sale says one price, but when staff scans the items it gives another more expensive price.

I went on a cruise and came back, and we were assigned a room that smelled bad as if either there was a pet that was kept in the room or someone urinated in the air conditioning system. Staying @ the Candlewood Suites in Ft. Lauderdale ending up being a nightmare.

We stayed here one night before leaving on a cruise. The bed was comfortable, the suite was immaculately clean and the AC was on before we checked in so it was a comfortable temperature when we walked in, which is not always the case in the south unfortunately in motels. The Wifi worked well. The room had a full-size fridge, two burner stove, microwave, and was equipped with a toaster, dishes, silverware, etc. We would rather have had breakfast provided but it wasn't so we came prepared. There is $10/nite extended parking available and shuttle to Port Everglades for $8 each. The motel was quiet - we didn't hear noise from other guests or from the road. It provided a good night's rest, and we liked the 12 noon checkout. The recliner in the room was also very comfortable!
