“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

They mention this as a Best Western Plus. However, I think it is is a plus only because of it's location right near the beach. You can ask for a beach towel from the front desk and walk to the beach less than a block away. The best part of the beach is that is out by a park and not in the backyard of a ton of hotels. The room was pretty basic, reminds me more of a regular Best Western than a Plus. I've been in many BW Plus hotels and this one didn't compare. The wireless internet was terrible from the room I was in. For business, this was bad. If I was there on pleasure, no worries, I'd be out an about anyway. PRO: Super easy access to the beach CON: Wireless (at least during my stay)

The staff was great, friendly and professional. They could not do enough for our large group of about 100 people. The bed was very comfortable, the location was close to several lounges, restaurants and the beach.

We had a double bed room; flat screen tv, small fridge, microwave; breakfast is included and you can get scrambled eggs, pankakes, cereal, toast... in a self service style; there is a pool on site. Location is great, near the beach. We did not have a car but you can use a hop on hop off trolley for $2 a day and it will bring you to grocery stores and whatever else you need. Staff is great and helpful. $20 a day will get you on a water taxi. Weather was nice...it rains every day for 5-10 minutes and then back to sunshine.

Room Tip: far from elevators is a request that I usually ask for

we were riding motorcycle from Key West to going North and got soaked with tropic rain...We choose this hotel because it was close to beach and never been Fort Lauderdale...Our first impression was perfect to choose the room, getting closed parking lot for motorcycle, getting 10 dollars off because orbitz or expedia selling the room 10 bucks cheaper..Room is big, nice, clean, bad is good so we stayed one more night and enjoy Fort Lauderdale..Other day storm went away and enjoyed sun, beach, parks, cafes on the Fort Lauderdale...

Breakfast are prefect, we loved to sit on the breakfast room, chat with lady working in breakfast room, she is very nice...check the pictures, do updates for our travel.....

we will stay this hotel when we go back same area.....

Your stay begins in a dark, dingy lobby. Take in the large, murky aquarium (sans fish) conveniently located between the check-in desk and a fully stocked bar. For those guests staying on upper floors, make your way to the hot, musty elevator. We stayed on the fourth floor adjacent to the ever noisy ice machine. As you enter your room you'll notice a lovely warm mildew odor. Bring back childhood memories with a game of hot lava where you leap between furniture pieces to avoid touching the floor. Tour the less-than-spacious bathroom featuring someone else's long hair in the shower and small bugs on the floor. I should mention the door to the bathroom won't close without a good hard shouldering. Venture to the balcony where there is no need to open the door to see the outside. A 1/2" opening in the door frame provides vistas of the rooftop air conditioning and shared balcony (surprise!). Care to leave your valuables in the safe?...oh, it's already locked or jammed. The air conditioner was the nicest feature in the room. A previous guest had edited the brand to say "Fried ich" which I assume used to be something along the lines of Friedrich.

The only *worse* hotel I stayed in was named the Bates Motel. While I wasn't murdered, it was not a pleasant stay.

If you want to stay at a hotel that feels more like home than a hotel, then look no further than the Best Western Oceanside in Fort Lauderdale. You can get more expensive hotels, and you can get cheaper hotels, but you won't find one that has the caring staff that goes above and beyond to make your stay perfect in every way possible.

Nice comfortable beds, clean, good hot water, very friendly and helpful staff, close to Sheraton and Marriott so can have less expensive stay. Breakfast was great but food in bar, not so good. I thought a cockroach was on my leg, staff said it's a Palmetto, a relative. Floridians are not upset by this but I was. It was a big as my thumb.
