“A fabulous place!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

A great little motel with the best location ever, just across from the beach and pretty much in the center of activity of Fort Lauderdale by the Beach!
Robert and Joe were superfriendly and extremely helpful.
I would recommend this hotel/motel to anyone for a short stay, especially before or after a cruise departing from Fort Lauderdale.
Whenever we cruise again, we know where to go!
A precious little gem!

We found this hotel through bookings.com. People that have stayed here gave this 2 star hotel high ratings. They were right.

The hotel was across from the beach. The rooms were very clean and were maintained daily. Joe, the manager, was very pleasant to deal with and was very helpful. They supplied the beach towels and lounging chairs free of charge. The only downside to our room is that it did not have a microwave. Iron is supplied when needed. The hotel itself does not have a pool. That did not matter to us since we went down there for the beach.

The hotel was within walking distance of restaurants and bars. The Casablanca Restaurant beside the Snooze is always full so book a reservation.

If you don't have a car, I suggest you Google for places to go and things to see. Download the Broward Transit Map of the Sun Trolley map to get an idea of which bus routes to take. The hotel is just steps away from the Broward Transit Bus stops. Get a day or week pass depending on how much traveling you intend to do. Both are cheap priced transit options if you don't mind waiting.

All in all the hotel lived up to the ratings that we read at bookings.com. I just added this to my favorite places to stay.

I absolutely loved this hotel! It's not new. It's a remodeled hotel that keeps it charm. My room was great. The view from the balcony was to die for and they even left everything for me because I was late arriving! I will definitely be back!! It's also within walking distance to a number of great restaurants!!

We stayed here first in Dec./13 for three nights after a Trans-Atlantic cruise, this time we stayed for the same number of days late April before a Panama Canal cruise. Owners/Managers were very friendly and helpful, we borrowed a chair and towels for the beach. We were told about the plans for the roof area development, sounds like that will be a great upgrade for the hotel when they get it finished. Our fridge packed it in during the first day and it was replaced within a few hours so no complaint there whatsoever. We'll definitely stay here again when we are in Ft. Lauderdale.

My fiance and I just got back from an extended vacation. The management was excellent and so was the staff. The rooms are very clean and I believe recently remodeled. The whole hotel looks remodeled and is very nice. The management was very caring, we are from out of state and are not very familiar with the area. We were almost late trying to catch the Jungle Queen and he offered us a ride which was very nice of him. He also helped park our car and direct us in. The parking may be tight but they cant do anything about that and definitely help make it easy on the people that have trouble with it. The cleaning ladies are super nice and always listen to you and seem to be self motivated. This hotel was very very very affordable and I would have paid triple to stay here. Its right on the beach sitting next to "five star" hotels. It's just as nice as far as I'm concerned.We stayed at this place for ten days and did not have one single issue whatsoever. That says a lot! It's all you need and a price you cant beat. The staff being awesome is just a plus!!! Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

I was blown away by the room, location, and staff!!! We were walking distance to everything, we had an ocean view room that was more like a contemporary apt, I highly recommend this gem of a hotel, and it also supports local mom and pop businesses. Looking forward to my next trip :))

Snooze is a modern take on the essentials needed for your home away from home.

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.

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.
