Ocean Sky Hotel & Resort
Ranked #61 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Ocean Sky offers decent deals, especially through third party websites. However, from arrival onto the property, where you are immediately hit with a 15 dollar mandatory valet parking fee, you constantly feel like your wallet is being tugged upon. Don't get me wrong. Ocean Sky is a very decent 2 1/2 to 3 star property. The beds are comfortable. The pool area and beach were nice if not luxurious. The staff was fairly knowledgeable and very helpful and friendly, and I have no serious complaints about the place itself--other than the fact that my balcony overlooked not the ocean, but the parking lot. However, don't think that you're getting luxury here. You are not. The food is mediocre at best. I spent a good amount of time actually searching for any sign of cheese on the nachos I ordered at the bar (10 bucks), and the sandwiches were McDonald's quality, but at four times the price. Additionally, the ATM fees are outrageous (12 bucks for a 400 dollar withdrawal), as is about every other additional fee that you will encounter. I'm fine paying outrageous fees at properties that warrant such things, but Ocean Sky doesn't qualify. . Spend another fifty bucks to step up in quality at another property. You won't mind paying outrageous atm fees, and you might get some cheese with your cheese nachos.

Room Tip: I paid $99/night. October weekend through Hotels Tonight.

Thank you for the review and nice comments on friendliness of staff. Just a follow up on fees however is that there are many oceanside hotels that charge many fees such as resort fees etc that we do not charge. Our parking fee is very reasonable as compared to similar hotels that are on the beach as we continually monitor prices in our neighborhood.

Hope to see you again.

The front desk staff looks like they want to help make your stay enjoyable ha ha ha. There is a notice on the desk in our room that saids. Dishware glassware kitchenware and utensils have been provided in this room as a guest convenience. When I went down to the front desk they told me that the don't provide them. My wife had to call and then they came up with some but not much. Not to professional with the sign in the room. The free internet you had to leave your door open to have it work. Nice beds small balcony with a view of the ocean. There are better value hotels in the area. I would not come back here. Bathroom is really tiny. We stayed at the hilton the night before and it was way better. We have been hotel jumping this week of October 1 - 6 for free jet blue miles. So have been at 5 hotels in the past 8 days.

I am not aware of the sign that you are referring to but it does not sound like something that we have in the room. We hope that you give us another opportunity as we have been working very hard to match the hotel to the extraordinary location that we are fortunate to have.

Thank you.

I booked this as a "mystery hotel" on Travelocity. I chose it based on the location, amenities, and the price (which was fantastic at the time!). I traveled with my mom and we enjoyed 3 days relaxing by the pool and wandering the beach. We ate breakfast once on the patio (it was good, just pricey), and had a couple of drinks from the tiki bar. This hotel was extremely convenient because we just wanted to be beach bums. Plus, it is very close to a grocery/drug store and a reasonable walk to the pier and fun restaurants. The room had a safe and a mini-fridge, both were appreciated very much.

One thing I really appreciated was that there was never a shortage of towels on the pool deck. That, and the fact that we had a partial ocean view...I think every room actually has a small patio with a partial ocean view. It is not a private area, but for what we paid to stay here, we thought it was wonderful.

We're from Wisconsin...enjoying sunshine and the beach in December is a dream.

Room Tip: I don't think it is possible to select a bad room, because it appeared that all of the rooms had...

Stayed for 2 weeks, 1st time in this area, great hotel, staff so friendly, facilities good. Room was on 6th floor North , smell of paint, showed work was going on, my wife and I felt safe and looked after. Pool and bar good, beach and beach beds a bit dirty, prices for hire above the local average. Food in hotel good but higher than outside hotel. Valet park guys awesome, so helpful......In all a good hotel, only down side, extra charges when you check in. This should be in the price not extra............Kayak hire cheaper down the road.........A great vacation from the UK thank you so much for helping us enjoy FLORIDA.....Marty and Sue.

I stayed in this hotel 4x with my family and it was always a great experience. Excellent localization, clean and good rooms. Maybe their restaurant menu could improve a little bit and be cheaper. I really recommend this hotel.
