We just arrived at Universal Palms Hotel.
It will be a 2 nights only stay.
Unfortunately not longer, because our arrival was a very welkom one.
The hotel is very nice, clean and the people are friendly.
At the frontdesk Jacques was very kind to us.
He gave us a very nice room, even better than we expected.
Also he gave us advised where we should go eat and where to see nice places.
So if you stay at Universal Palms, ask for Jaques, he's a very nice guy and makes you feel welkom.

We had 3 nights here in May 2013 and it was just ok. The location is not the best as the hotel is next to a railroad track and a main road too, it was noisy. The hotel is old and our air conditioning was really noisy. Breakfast is $4.00 each which is good value. Make sure you get the vouchers from reception for breakfast before you go in to the dining room. The reception area is really nice as are the Reception staff. The beach is 15 mins away and beach parking is $1.25 per hour.

Room Tip: Get one overlooking the pool near to reception

Stayed here for the memorial day weekend with two friends. The hotel is located almost 8 miles from the airport and they do not have an airport shuttle. The neighborhood is a little run down but if you are in Florida visiting, then you are mostly out!!! The hotel reception is decent but the corridor and elevator area needs some serious remodeling. The room is decent and clean. But if you get the city view rooms then you will be disturbed by frequent honks of trains and cars down the street. To put it briefly, this is what you get for the price.


There are few good Mexican and cuban restaurants nearby but it is better to opt for decent restaurants unless you are damn hungry. It is a little far from Miami and South Beach but if you run out of options in Ft lauderdale area, then this can be a decent option.

Room Tip: Get the pool side view to avoid the honks of cars and trains

Overall, I guess you get what you pay for. My room was "upgraded" to a suite. But the suite was on the side of the hotel facing train tracks. Loud train horn blowing every hour on the hour. The room was average for the price but I noticed ants in my bed and on the night stand.

The location is fine if you have a car. Only a few eating places are within walking distance. I think I'll stay somewhere else next time. Remember, you get what you pay for. I'll pay a little more next time and stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the far side facing the train tracks.

The area that this hotel is located at is just horrible.It was so bad that I didnt even stay, took the lost and left because I ordered online and its not refundable. The room had a very bad ordor coming from the vent. It was just an awful experience.
