“convenient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

We stayed here the night before a cruise. Convenient location, pretty easy to find. Staff friendly and courteous. The room was non smoking but smelled like stale tobacco smoke and the air conditioner would work fine and then not as well.

We only stayed here for one night, but it was easy to find and the staff was friendly. The first thing we noticed was how good the place smelled. An extra plus was they had a place we could print our boarding passes for free! And the room was huge!! The only uncomfortable part, and this is nitpicking, the elevators were extremely hot/humid. But overall very pleased!

We spent last night at this hotel prior to flying to Jamaica. Tashawnda at the front desk was so nice, friendly and helpful. She made us feel really welcomed. The hotel was clean and the beds were a bit hard, but very comfy. The towels in the bathroom were large, soft and there were plenty of them (my personal pet peeve-not enough towels). We were on the first floor and it was a bit noisy this morning, but did not interupt our sleep. Breafast was scrambled eggs and great sausages plus an assortment of muffins, bagles, pastries, pancakes toast coffee and juice. The pool was clean, large and easy to get to. The hotel was easy to find and it was easy for us to get to where we wanted to go--Jai Lai, Hard Rock Casino and our favorite cuban restaurant Padrino's. There is a free airport shuttle and the shuttle to the cruise port is $8.00 per person. You can leave you car here while you are on vacation for a daily fee. The coffee maker is on 24 hours which is a biggie for me! Bathroom had a hair dryer and the usual toiletries. Plenty of hot softened water. We will stay here the next time we cruise or fly out of Ft. Lauderdale. Another perk there is a computer and printer available in the lobby area so you can print your boarding passes--

Room Tip: I'd ask for a room on another floor if you are staying for any length of time, the first floor w...

This is hotel is not bad in terms of cleaningness, worth to stay for one night before cruising. Small lobby and reception area, nothing grand, the check-in process was slow at 10pm. The front desk staff at morning shift was friendly and advised us which church to go for Sunday mass (St.Jerome) within walking distance. There is a mall and McDonald close by. The complimentary hot breakfast was good too.

But one disappointment is the hotel shuttle. We phoned the hotel about our arrival at the airport 9:30pm, ended up we waited for 45 mins to get on to the van which is only 5 mins driving distance away. During this waiting time, another Best Western ( Airport South Inn & Suites) shuttle came 2 times to pick up their guests.

Great place to stay waiting for a Cruise. Close to the beach, nice pool, and all for a good price. A great place to relax before or after your Cruise. You can walk to the Water Taxi and the cab ride to the airport is short. They offer transportation to the Cruise terminals for around $10.00.

Room Tip: You might want to stay on the outside to avoid the pool noise.

The included breakfast was a decent little buffet.
There is also a McDonalds right next door which we happily used for a late night snack.

I had read people write about an odour in the rooms, and yes, we did too encounter that. For me, it wasnt unbearable but it was noticeable.
Room was clean and comfortable.

The free shuttle from the airport was a nice bonus, and luckily I did not have a long wait for it.
But my sister who came in on a different flight had a verrrry long wait. So i guess shuttle times are hit and miss.
Also, pay attention to the operator when you call from the baggage area to order this shuttle: they will describe the writing on the side of the van (there are different Best Western vans, you want to make sure you get on the right one of course).

We paid the $10. for the shuttle to the cruise port. It was right on time and efficient. Reserve it right when you check in, and the cost will show up right on your hotel bill (and of course you know for sure you have the reservation.)

For, what I consider a low hotel rate, I thought this stay was just fine. I'd stay here again for a one nighter, but probably not for an extended vacation.

*** If you want a taxi from this hotel to the Sawgrass MIlls Outlet Mall, it was about a $40. ride each way.

Stayed here as a pre cruise hotel. Free airport shuttle ( remember there are 2 best western shuttle hotels so get on the right one ). Room very nice, business center great for checking emails and back home. Breakfast was very good. $ 10 per person for shuttle to Evergreen Port and was quick and efficient. Pre book upon check in for best time and availability. The only drawback to this hotel is while there is a large shopping facility a block away the restaurants are not close by.
