Fort Lauderdale Airport / Cruise Port Inn
Ranked #54 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 7 January 2014

I made a last minute reservation here as I had an early morning flight. The rates are reasonable and the hotel is new. The room was large and clean. I also found the staff to be friendly and attentive. The location is great if you are flying or cruising but not convenient to the city or beaches. I left so early I cannot comment on the breakfast or shuttle service.

Thank you, Cara, for writing this nice review and mentioning our great staff and our large, clean rooms. We are only 2 1/2 miles from the beach so next time I hope you'll stay longer so you can enjoy the area.

Was staying there for work, and they implemented a "sensor" in the room, that automatically shut off the A/C if it "thought" there was no one in the room. The sensor wasn't even directed toward the bed area, so if you don't normally get up during the middle of the night, the A/C would shut off, and you'd wake up in a HOT room, just long enough to wave your arm so the sensor "saw" you, and turned the A/C back on.

Basically, avoid staying here, unless you're an insomniac.

Everything else about the property was pleasant, save for a parking lot far too small for the number of rooms they have - park early!

It's close to numerous restaurants, pubs, and public transportation. The rooms were clean, though warm. My thoughts are that the guest, not the hotel, should be allowed to control the temperature of their room.

I see that you were here almost 1 year ago and since then we have done major renovations. We no longer have sensors in the room and almost all of the rooms have new a/c units. I'm glad you enjoyed the location and we continue to be proud of the cleanliness of our hotel which I see you noticed. I hope you'll come back and enjoy a nice cool room - all night.

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times when we were going on a cruise from Ft. Lauderdale, and came in there again on December 25th. The location is within minutes of both Ft. Lauderdale Airport and Port Everglades. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the price is reasonable, especially considering the included breakfast. Best of all, there is a shuttle service that for $6 per person, you can get directly to the port with prompt and courteous service. When we checked in, fairly late at night, the man at the desk, Greg, was outstanding. He recognized our status as Choice Hotel gold members, which has happened only one other time before (out of probably 40 Choice Hotel stays), explained all the facilities and services available at the hotel, and did everything he could to accommodate our needs. Ten minutes after we were in our rooms, he called to make sure that the rooms were satisfactory--that's never happened before. The breakfast is probably better at the Embassy Suites, but it's got enough of a selection where you shouldn't go away hungry. Over all, we'll probably be there again in March, when we will be back in the area.

In my opinion, this hotel provided a decent place to sleep.

The great news: The people working here were some of the friendliest and informative bunch that I've encountered at check-in, and I know they were dealing with a stressful night, accompanied by many travelers with cancelled flights, and not in good moods.

Our room was clean, which in my opinion is paramount. On the other hand, it smelled a little funny... maybe musty.
The couch was outdated, but functional.

The price vs. other hotels in the area was competitive.

The breakfast buffet was free and pretty good too.

We stayed at this hotel the night before our cruise. Greg, who was working the front desk, was the absolute best. He was working alone with a lobby full of people, but he handled it beautifully. He was professional, helpful, and willing to go the extra mile to see that we were all taken care of and that our questions were answered. The hotel was clean, beds comfortable, and the breakfast was good. The location is great. It is walking distance to lots of shopping and eating places. Transportation from the airport was complimentary and timely. A very reasonable fee was charged for transportation to the cruise port. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

my husband and I stayed at this hotel on Dec. 18th before embarking on a cruise the next afternoon...my experience with Greg (whom I believe is the Manager, and if he is not HE SHOULD BE) began a few weeks prior to my check in....I telephoned and was lucky to speak with Greg who was patient, helpful and acted like he was a family member...my service was just the best ever....room larger than I expected, good hot breakfast, and parking for the length of my cruise........Greg is the host / manager and treats his customers like family.......location also great with restaurants and shopping available in walking distance......GREAT LOCATION......GREAT GREETING and SERVICE

anyone travelling to Fort Lauderdale to take a cruise or a flight should definitely consider this location...

Room Tip: I only know the room I had and it was good, clean and spacious

First of all the entire staff for our two night stay has been super friendly, professional, welcoming and accommodating. Our room is spotless. Bed is very comfortable. Breakfast is very good with make your own waffles, firm scrambled eggs and Canadian bacon along with various breads and pastries. Parking is free and the airport is less than 10 minutes drive.The only negatives are weak wifi and close to traffic noise if you are a light sleeper. We come to Fort Lauderdale every year and will definitely be staying here again!
