“Surprisingly nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Although it is a dated motel there have been upgrades. We have room 305 and a friend is in room 303 both are redone in a simple clean manner. Good hot shower new mini fridge, dressers and lighting. The staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful. I will book next years rooms even before I leave!

Although it is small and doesn't offer all the amendities of a large hotel, it was clean, quaint and the staff was above great. There are restaurants in close walking distance and a drug store that carries everything you may need. The view of the ocean, right across the street, was the best part of our relaxing time.
Will we return? Definitely!

Our experience staying at the Ocean Holiday Motel was one of the best we've had! The newly renovated rooms were really a treat for the senses and the service was superb! Everyone was very nice and helpful and it was definitely a great value for our money. Everything we could want was in walking distance, with so much to see and do, and best of all the beach was right across the street. We will definitely be returning!

Room Tip: If you can get a room with an ocean view.

They are going thru renovations but it is still a great place to stay! The management is friendly and helpful. Right across from the ocean and with in walking distance to shops and resturants. The baloncy on the second floor is awesome, our family of 8 sat out there and enjoyed the views and ate our dinner. Already planning my next trip there.

Our hotel experience here was terrific!! I hate to say something is a hidden gem, because it usually means in the future that SO many people will discover it and it won't be hidden anymore... Having said that, over our 5 day stay, Robert the owner was SO helpful and the service was SO good, the hotel deserves an excellent rating.

Yes, they are doing renovations. If the possible noise may bother you, ask about it when you call to make a reservation. It will depend on where in the hotel the renovation is going on and where your room is. Personally, we heard NOTHING and slept incredibly well. Btw, our bed was outrageously comfortable and the room was clean & pretty and maintained every day. Our desk chair had been damaged slightly by a previous guest and as soon as I told Dave (at reception), he replaced it immediately.

We were staying at OHM in the days leading up to our beach wedding, which took place in sight of the hotel and prior to our stay, they had even recommended that we have our wedding dinner at Casablanca Cafe (next door). We did and were thrilled with the proximity of the hotel, wedding site and restaurant.

Robert and his staff did everything to provide great service in any way that they could. Understandably there may be times in which a service provider has to say "no" to a customer, but if there was a way to be helpful, everyone (including the cleaning staff) was.

No matter where you stay, have realistic expectations of what you are "buying". This place isn't The Hilton, there is no pool or restaurant on the property and there isn't any (food) room service. BUT, if you want a great, comfy & clean room, in a terrific location (fyi-Starbucks next door/opens at 6am) and you want to deal with GOOD people who enjoy giving great service (not chain-hotel service clones)....THIS is the place for you.

Thanks so much to Robert and Dave and the lovely housekeeper, for making our pre-wedding week as relaxing as possible!

I am actually in hospitality and instead of staying with my brand I decided to go out on a limb and try this hotel. They are actually going through a renovation. It sorta like a hidden gem. The people there are really nice and helpful. While its not a Hyatt or Hilton its not bad, but if your looking for something along the beach for a very affordable price this is a great place. I don't think I would change anything about our stay except to stay a week longer! I would defiantly stay here in again. Thanks for a great vacation!

Super clean & very nicely refurbished & in the most excellent location. Great value for money and I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Free parking too. A great find and highly recommended for the price we paid.

Snooze is a modern take on the essentials needed for your home away from home. We believe traveling in style should be affordable without any hidden costs - just pay your room rate plus tax and that's it! We offer a clean, comfortable and modern room, plus add free parking, wifi, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. Keep in mind we offer the essentials so...No pool, no 24 hr service, no phones, no spa, no bell boy, no valet and no chocolates on your pillows. Why spend the extra money on extras you don't need? We are the last oceanfront Ft. Lauderdale hotel left with less than 20 rooms. There are plenty of "big box" branded hotels out there and we are proud we are not one of them. Snooze is located directly accross the street from Fort Lauderdale Beach next to the Westin and Ritz Carlton hotels. Direct Ocean View, Kitchenette and Hotel Rooms are available at the property. The airport (7 miles), cruise terminal (5 miles) and convention center (5 miles) are just minutes away. Free Wi-Fi and beach chairs and towels. Free parking as long as it is not an over-sized vehicle. Our check-in age is 25 and older. ... more   less
