“CLOSE TO THE AIRPORT AND CONVENIENT TO ALL ATTRACTIONS”
Reviewed 8 October 2009

We arrived before dawn from a red eye flight and after a bit of confusion about being picked up at the airport, which they don't do, the night manager kindly allowed us to check in early to our room. They provide a basic continental breakfast and non smoking rooms. The room was modern, clean and quiet but had a musty smell, It is very damp in Florida. The front desk put us in touch with a good rental car company who provided pick up and good recommendations to local area attractions. Everything was within a 15-30 minute drive. It was a nice way to spend the first night in Fl before we left on our cruise.

This older hotel offered decent rates and 10 days of secured parking with a free shuttle to Port Everglades. The front desk staff was very friendly and the hotel was average. An older hotel bet well situated and close to everything. Rates were reasonable. I would use them again as everything went smoothly, unlike the last time we took a cruise and parked at a facility called United Airport Parking / Airport Seaport Parking / USA Auto Rental and our vehicle was rummaged through with our new GPS missing along with oh - about $7 in silver toll change and damage to our vehicle that was not there when we valet parked with these people. The employees at United/Airport Seaport/ USA Auto Rental were downright rude and not helpful with the missing GPS, change or the damages to our vehicle. To top it all off the owner James Zapata never took or returned the half dozen calls that we made nor responded to our certified letter. Eventually we paid for the damages ourselves as it fell under our deductible. Never again would we valet park our vehicle with these jokers!

We traveled with kids before going on a cruise from Miami. The staff was very friendly, they offered directions to wherever we wanted to go to, the beach, shopping and attractions. The morning breakfast was free and great. There is a grocery, mcdonalds, chinese food etc all walkable in 5 minutes. The surroundings were quiet and nice. There were quite a few hotels in the vicinity. Once in the room, we could hear some noise from the next room but it did not really bother us. They had a PC with internet hookup for free use and if I am correct, the wireless internet too but we did not make use of it. They had a small swimming pool which we wanted to use but did not have time. I recommend staying there if you are not spoiled by 4 and 5 star hotels. Do not miss out on Ft Lauderdale beaches, we probably liked those better than South Beach because of less crowd and parking availability etc. To get to and from Miami cruise terminals, we used Alianza Tours & Transportation. They were on time and reliable. For our large party of 13, they costed about $10-$13 per head.

We flew into FLL two days prior to our cruise on Carnival Destiny out of Miami in May. The rented a car, the hotel was pretty easy to find, parking was free. Front Desk clerks were always very friendly and helpful. Room was clean, had a refridgerator and microwave, that was a big plus for us. It is located right next door to a McDonalds, there is a Winn Dixie grocery store within walking distance. I was a little disappointed that this particular Best Western did not have laundry facilities. The pool area was nice. Their shuttle to and from the airport is shared with some others in the area. I had returned our rental car to the airport and planned to take the shuttle back to the hotel. It took over an hour and three phone calls to get picked up. The next morning I had scheduled a ride to the Miami cruise port with SAS transportation. I highly recommend SAS, it was $15.00 per person to go from the hotel in Fort Lauderdale to the Miami Cruise port. This is a shared ride, but the vans were clean and a nice size. Drivers were friendly. I will definitely use them in the future when we come back for a cruise.

We arrived at the airport after midnight (12:20) - called hotel, was told that the shuttle was still available, would arrive in about 10 minutes - which it did! Check-in went very easy. Breakfast buffet was acceptable - free shuttle to ship the next morning. Our rate was a little pricey ($140) but the best that we could find in Ft. Lauderdale during spring break. Wouldn't want to stay in this location for an extended vacation - not much in the area - but worked out perfect for the night before our Fantastic(!!) cruise. Would definitely stay again. There were other hotels right in our area that all looked nice too, but don't know the rates.

This is what a got when we got there Saturday!

Not only did we get this kind of crap ( see below pictures ) for $265.29 a night, we also got attitude from the evening manager. Not to friendly. He did not look like a guy that likes is job. He did tell me to wear a shirt when I got out of the room and this did not offend me. I had forgotten my credit card at the front desk and rushed back to get it without a shirt. But when I asked him for restaurants menus, a couple of hours later, I felt that he just wanted to get rid of me. I am an outside salesman and I travel a lot and was never treated this way by nobody that works in the hotel business.

We did get a friendly smile and a lot of cooperation from Carl Dorvil ( the night manager ) this morning. At least, he made us feel welcome.

I was not impressed by Best Western at all.

I believed that you could only get this kind of quality from a dump at $45.00 a night.

I would like to apoligize for housekeeping not catching the coffee stain on the box springs. The stain has been removed since your stay and the hotel has taken precautions to make sure this won't happen to another guest. Thank you for your input on the hotel. Here at Best Western we are striving to deliver the best service possible. The staff and I use this information to create an enjoyable experience for each and everyone of our guests. We hope you will stay here again.
