“Good staff........but!”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Check in was great ,staff was wonderful! Sorry but I have a terrible memory for names,I think her name was Alize.what a gem! This is where my good experience starts to wane. Breakfast has changed ....eggs were runny this morning a bit gross and no bacon offered either.

We spent the day at the beach returning periodically for various items. When we returned at 4.00 our room was still not cleaned. I put the trash outside our room because it was getting smelly,Yuk!
I went to the front desk and the girl explained that they were full last night??? Okay what does that have to do with my room not being cleaned until I complain?

Returned to my room to see a man picking up the trash outside my door and yelling in Spanish about the trash on the floor. (Hubby is Spanish so yes I understood him) when he saw me he was very nice.
This message is for management! You have great employees.Please give them the tools/staff they need to do a good job!

Stayed two nights en route to join a cruise from Port Everglades. Great location very close to beach and several restaurants nearby and very close to the Jungle Queen sightseeing boat and bus 40 which takes you into downtown area or along the coast road to Bonnet House. The place is a little dated, but the front desk staff and bar staff were very helpful and friendly. Small heated pool. Room (423) spacious and well equipped - pretty good wifi, good aicon, large flat screen TV, safe, fridge, microwave, coffee maker - and well lit (a rarity these days). Bathroom with tub and shower over and hair dryer, Breakfast buffet very good - cereal, juice, good coffee, and good choice of hot stuff and cold cuts, cheese etc. Rooms near the main road may be a bit noisy - higher numbers on each floor are farther away.

Room Tip: Four rooms on each floor look towards a new hotel block, so not the greatest view, but away from the...

We stayed at this hotel for a couple days prior to taking a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale.

We picked it because we find Best Western brands tend to be good quality for the cost and this wasn't an exception.

The hotel does look a bit dated on both the outside and inside. The staff at check in were helpful and provided us with a bunch of information on the area and the hotel. You have to pay for parking, I think it was $10 a night, but it is underground parking and somewhat secure.

The room wasn't the freshest room we've had. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and the TV was a good size. They were in the process of upgrading the WIFI, so we had some issues there.. The furniture was a bit dated and the bathroom looked older as well. There wasn't much of a view out the window (it looked in to some courtyard), but then we knew that when we booked it.

The pool area looked like it has seen some rough use over the years, but was still serviceable. Breakfast was included and we took full advantage of that. The food was good, with your typical types of hotel breakfast fares to be found.

It is a short walk from the beach and several restaurants and stores.

All in all, for our needs and stay this was a nice average hotel and I'd have no problem staying there again.

The front desk clerk I dealt with was very rude - one of the worst experiences I've ever had at a hotel. The room was dark and very tine - hardly any space to even walk in. They charge extra to park, which is another rip-off to their already over-priced room rate. Don't consider staying here if at all possible.

The location was great. The hotel was within walking distance to the restuarants . It was also within the route of the Sun Trolley Shuttle or the Bus 40 that takes you to the Galleria Mall. We asked for a quiet room and they gave us a room facing the Sheraton Pool . It was relatively quiet except on our last night when Sheraton's guests were having a late swim. The room was comfortable, clean but dated. The wifi was fast except at night time. The air conditioning was noisy. The front staff were polite and helpful. The breakfast was nothing to brag about. For Best Western Plus hotel, I expected the "plus" but it just wasn't there.

Rooms are not very clean either. Our room was not ready on time. This hotel really needs a serious makeover or tear it down and rebuild. Front desk staff are rude and don't seem to have proper training. At $219 close to beach i guess this is a good deal? Would not stay here again! $20 for parking.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that faces the pool.

Rooms need updating - and a really good power washing. Location of hotel is good, 60 seconds from beach. Some of the room furniture is good, but some is really dated. And the door to the balcony looked like it had been painted about 50 times and wouldn't close properly because the door was too big for the frame. Breakfast was good - besides waffle maker also had pancake maker - never saw that before. Variety was good, although sometimes items were depleted and it took too long for staff to replenish. Front desk help was friendly.
