“Low rent property. OK for the money”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

I know a lot of people like to put this place down. If so why do they stay at the lowest price waterfront property and expect a palace. The ice machines work and the pool is nice. You can walk right out on the beach. Near a lot of restaurants. Free parking

This is a dump in every sense of the word. When you look up the word dump in the dictionary there is a picture of the Lauderdale Beachside Hotel in all it horrible glory.

1. We checked in and went to our room only to find that the sliding door to the outside did not close so therefore it did not lock. The sliding mirrored door to the closet was off the track making it difficult to open. The phone had to cord therefore it did not work. The carpet was coming coming up all around the room and it was filthy. The remote was missing from the tv. There was not chair in the room. Door on cabinet holding the tv was broken and behind the cabinet.

2. Went down and asked to be move to another room. We asked to be moved to the beach front building figuring we paid a beach front fee why not ask for a beach front room. We were told that would be an additional $20 fee. We refused to paid the additional charge. We were however move to another room. Went to check out the room before moving our luggage only to do over that there was a couple standing outside of it with a keep. They too had been assigned to that room. Went down to the front desk again and was give the key to a third room.

3. We went to this room and it was only a we bit better than the first room.

We booked through Priceline which mean we paid in full up front but was told Priceline did not collect a $7.00 beachfront fee and we had to pay that.

To add salt to the womb there was a women sitting in the lobby trying to sell something and yelling at you to come over to her and get your free gift. My response to her was: "if you are not going to give me a decent room I don't want anything you have to offer. After travel all day who and finding out the hotel you are staying at is a DUMP, who wants to be bothered with someone pressuring you into buying something.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!!!!!!!!!

I don't understand how other travelers can say it was a nice stay as all we saw was dirt and ruin everywhere. We checked in @ 3, went to dinner and left for a clean hotel. We asked them to take the $7.00 fee off, but of course they didn't. Check out the traveler's photos, that is what the "hotel" really looks like.

I had the most amazing time in Nitro City. If you like to be surrounded by smiles, perfect weather good food and just a atmosphere that dispels nothing but joy to you and yours then this the perfect place. I spent a week there with a group of friends and it was jam packed with many activities from wakeboarding, paddle surfing, skateboarding, swimming, dirt biking along with so much more and that was only during the daytime, we spent nights by the bar with members of staff that after few conversations they instantly become family. ill never forget this, Thank You NitroCity

Located right on the beach, if you stay at the beach building, walking distance to grocery store,restaurants,etc . The building could use some attention with maintenance. Overall, a decent deal for the money . Felecia at the front desk is great

Well for the price it was pretty good. We were on the 5 th floor and our party had 4 rooms total. No real issues. There is no complimentary breakfast or coffee. Yes the towels suck but overall its a great spot to hit the beach and right across from Publix ,CVS a donut shop and liquor store. Wifi worked great in the rooms and at pool but not so much in lobby. Nov 10-13 and it rained the last day , big leak in the lobby im sure they will look into .

Room Tip: 5th floor was ok

Best advice, find somewhere else. This hotel was disgusting. It needs better Maitenence. The elevator floor was all duct taped. The halls reaked of mold. A bag of garbage from the housekeeping staff was left all day out in the hall. The closet door was knocked off the track. The shower drain was clogged with hair, along with dirty bath towels. I can't even list everything. Personally I would feel more comfortable at a motel 6 off the turnpike without a door lock in the worst neighborhood in the world. Best advice, pay the extra money for somewhere else!
