“Better than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

I stayed here for 3 nights with friends for a wedding. The rest of our friends stayed at the surrounding Sheraton and Hilton, but the couple of us being on a strict budget led us to this hotel. I expected it to be pretty run-of-the-mill, and it turned out to be a bit better that that. Loved that this hotel provided free breakfast buffet tickets for each morning that you stay (funny enough, my friends at the pricey Sheraton didn't receive the same!) and the food was pretty OK. Especially the corn beef hash! The room was spacious, loved that it had a microwave and fridge. Service was great with the cleaning every day. You can order food from the bar, which is mehh. Much better off taking the 10 minute walk down Seabreeze to the local eateries. Parking is $10 a day in their garage which kind of sucked! Place was pretty crowded. We opted to hang out at other hotel pools where our friends were staying, but the pool here was decent.

Overall, if you're looking to save a few bucks from the big name places and don't mind staying in your average run-of-the-mill hotels, this place is definitely worth it!

Great hotel that is NOT your typical "budget" hotel, like we were expecting. Everything was in great, working condition. We never felt icky walking in our bare feet in the room. The staff was awesome and always had a smile on their face. The bed was superb. Comfy and clean and I keep describing it as a nest. Hotel is a few hundred yards away from the beach, and it is hidden between 2 other hotels so not many people on that part despite being close to public beach parking. The pool was nice. Didn't use the cabana/lounge/bar. Breakfast was great: eggs, sausage, ham, biscuits & sausage gravy. Waffles. Pancakes. Cereal, toast, bagels, pastry, yogurt. Room had fridge, safe, and microwave. We overlooked the street, which was fine and not noisy. Walking distance to a few restaurants/bars attached to other hotels, but take a cab down the beach for a wider selection. Very highly recommended. Please stay here. You will not be disappointed.

We came to this hotel for my daughter's tournament. We have been to Ft Lauderdale before and I wanted a place closer to the beach. Overall this visit was great. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were comfortable. A huge bonus to me was the oversize dresser. We had plenty of room to take our things out if the suitcase. There is a small bar with a pool table and plenty of outdoor space around the pool and on the sun deck. The hotel is not directly on the beach but it is a short 2 minute walk to the sand. The decor is defiantly stuck in another decade but the website says they are to start remodeling the middle of the month. The rooms and common areas are very clean. The free breakfast is typical continental breakfast with many good choices. We will come back.

Shared a room with friends and went back and forth between the nearby beach and the hotel. Nice bar, nice pool, and a fine complimentary breakfast. Room was clean and aside from a somewhat busted balcony door, everything worked well and looked really nice. Would definitely stay again.

The location was great. It is right by the beach and not too far from bars and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and caring. They made me feel welcomed. The hot breakfast was really good. The only downside was the parking. My local friends had nowhere to park. They also charged to park daily. I think that parking should come with the room rate. It is worth checking out.

We were very comfortable with our stay travelling with family and friends. Very near to restaurants and the beach. The pool was clean and the kids liked it. The lounge was right there next to the pool. Internet was mostly fine, but I had a little trouble with the connection. I was able to use the hotel's printer to print out boarding passes for our flights the next day. The courtesy breakfast was good.

This was not my first stay at a Best Western nor the first time in Fort Lauderdale.
The reason I booked this hotel was the breakfast and the fitness center. I have stayed at Best Western Plus hotels before so this one was a disappointing experience. The breakfast was alright but reheated food are never good. Cold eggs and pancakes from a machine are not my cup of tea.
The fitness room was super small. Three people maximum. Just dumbbells (up to 50) and a full body weight machine did not satisfied my fitness needs. The website did not show any pictures just saying all equipment were new (and they were) But the beach is close so there are no excuse not to exercise!
Location is great and the staff is friendly.
Smoking is allowed around the pool, on sun deck and outside the rooms. Disgusting!! The smell is awful and no place for kids(nor adults).
No this is not a Best Western Plus hotel. It's just a lower standard hotel with breakfast.
