If you looking to have fun and a have party do it ... But ... If you looking for have relax don't do it .... It's not a good place to stay ......

As previous reviews have mentioned, this place is sorely in need of an update.

Pros:
Friendly staff

AC was on for me at checkin

Price

Free Wifi

Cons:
The 19 inch standard definition tv had problems connecting to the cablebox, and I didn't get about 80% of the channels. thankfully I had my iPad.

Toilet runs. Constantly.

They use white towels, and several of my towels had all kinds of stains on them. Gross.

Rundown, overall dirty feeling of the,room, even after it was cleaned.

The place is what it is. A cheap alternative to more expensive lodging in a decent area. A bit surprised at all these five star reviews, however.

First off let me say that we were not planning to stay at the lafayette motel. Me and 7 other spring breakers were going to stay at the fort lauderdale beach resort. A week before spring break 3 members dropped out. We couldnt afford to make up for what they were going to pay, so we had to cancel our reservation. We had already booked and paid for flights so we had to find some place fast and Lafayette motel was the only thing we could find. The reviews we read about it were horrible so we were expecting a lot worse, which i think was a good way to go into the situation. We got there and signed in and paid and then they showed us our room. It was a "suite" which had a refrigerator, microwave, small oven, pull out couch, and a bedroom with two beds. It looked pretty old but it wasnt the worst thing ive ever seen. The floor plan wasn't how we pictured it so we tried to ask for a different room. We were then taken across the street to an apartment owned by the same place. The apartment looked as if employees lived there and they only cleaned it when it was rented out so we stuck with our original room. The place was a little sketchy looking but I wasnt afraid of anyone bothering us (me being the only girl with four colleged aged guys, i made sure i was never alone). We did not use the utensils, cups, or plates in the room, they looked dirty so we bought our own. The air conditioning worked great and the beds were fairly comfortable. The beach was a couple minute walk from the motel and it looked nice, but it wasnt very populated. The worst things about the motel were that there were stains on the wall in the bathroom (ew), little gnats were on the table if food was left out, the pool was very cold, and it WAS NOT close to anything (resturants, bars, clubs). All in all it wasnt absolutely terrible, but i would never stay there again.

This Motel is infested with Roaches and many other insects! They are known for over charging your Credit Card on file once you leave in the hope that you do not notice or dispute the charges. If you are desperate to pay high fees for terrible accommodation this is your place.
This is a well known Motel for prostitutes and drug dealers to hangout. Do not bring your children to his Motel!

Room Tip: Have send over 20 clients in different rooms! There is NO good choice...

We were not allowed to even see the room prior to paying and took a chance and when we walked in, it was a dump. I cannot even believe they rent them out!!! We tried to get our money back as we didn't even stay. What a joke!!
