Reviewed 21 April 2014

We enjoyed staying there and would recommend it in the future. I've read many "less than positive" reviews on Trip Advisor and they all have one thing in common: they are expecting 5-start accomodations on a 2-star budget. This hotel is everything I would expect for the price relative to the other hotels in the vicinity. The only less than postive thing I would say is that beach access was blocked off for a large event. BW provided some transportation, however. I think in the future, we are more likely to stay at a BW farther from the beach (which is less expensive) and take advantage of the local trolley to get to the beach. I want to give Rose, in the lounge, a special call-out. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with her during our stay.

Dear Mark,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. The Tortuga Festival takes place usually one weekend in April, we do not have 2015 dates yet, however it is extremely busy at that time. We hope you are able to visit us again in the future and enjoy the beach the way it is usually set up most of the year. I specially appreciate you writing about Rose who I know takes great pride in her work.
Thank you again for staying with us
Regards,
Carolina Bello

Older property, but am told it's scheduled for remodeling. Helpful staff, nice pool. Clean facility. Great location across the street from Bahia Cabana. I was there during the music festival next door, noisy the first night, but that's not the hotel's fault. Good breakfast. Nice bar, but very limited evening food menu, basically fast food that is prepared by the bartender.

This property, while an older one, is well maintained and within short walking distance to the action on Ft. Lauderdale Beach, just to the north. The beach near the hotel is large and family-friendly. The room was standard but was spotlessly cleaned each day. They serve a hearty breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, meats, cereals, pancakes and waffles, yogurt and fruit, so you can fuel up before getting started with your day. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Special recognition goes to Aznie who was at the desk when I arrived after a long 6 hour drive. She quickly and efficiently fixed a problem I encountered with a 3rd party service who shall remain nameless and her warm smile and cheerful attitude were a huge plus at that particular moment! My daughter and I spent 2 nights at this hotel and will stay here again when I return to Ft. Lauderdale.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors will be quieter. We were on the 5th floor.

Stay at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn for 1 night before our cruise - to put it nicely... it's a dump! Rooms are really small and dingy, hallways are narrow and musty. The staff is very friendly, and it is in a great location. I got our room for $100 on priceline, and I'm so glad a didn't pay a cent more!

Room Tip: If you get this for a killer deal, and you don't mind never going barefoot in your room - then c...

okay hotel, great location for walking around Fort Lauderdale ... needs a little bit of a face lift in the lobby, hallways and rooms but it is clean and that is what we were looking for mostly . The staff was great all the way around... excellent service ... excellent atmosphere and all extremely helpful with any requests. A little pricey for what you get I thought but it does includes a breakfast each morning which a a big savings when travelling for time and money. Overall good

Hotel had friendly staff. Nice pool which I took advantage of. Breakfast was average. Bathroom had visible hair on the floor and it didn't all disappear the second day I was there. Maybe me wonder just how clean the room was. The bed was comfortable. Didn't realize I would need to walk around a big hotel to get to the beach. Overall for the price a nice place to stay.
