“Nice area, nice room, nice price!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Stayed here for a night back in May and found the place very delightful! Took me roughly two hours to get there by bus from the International Airport to the Intersection of Powerline Rd. Walking the half mile is ok if you only have a small bag...Upon arriving at the hotel I was impressed. The great staff got me my room in no time at all. The room was awesome! Clean as can be and vending and ice machines were just down the hall. Everything looked new as you may see in the pictures. The bathroom was large and certainly handicap accessible if that may be a concern of yours. The breakfast was also wonderful. No shortage or limited variety here. If I recall there was a waffle maker, biscuits, gravy, bacon, donuts, bagels, scrambled eggs, yogurt, juice, milk, coffee, plenty of fruit, sausage, cereal...and much more than I can remember! I left completely satisfied that morning. Getting to the executive airport made for a pleasant walk. Almost directly across the street. This airport is for smaller aircraft, and to be honest I never heard one inside the hotel during my stay. So please don't think sound may be an issue here. I know it may be a stretch and a bit to ask but I would love if they offered a shuttle service from the International Airport. It would also be nice if they offered more information in the room on places to eat and things to see and do. May I recommend if you don't have transportation, to give Jimmy John's a call. Best sandwiches around, and they deliver. They'll even come to your room if you like. Anyway, as far as the stay, no complaints here and it sure beats the outrageous prices at the Holiday Inn near the International Airport.

Room Tip: If you plan to order out during your stay and would like to meet the person at the front entrance, a...

The hotel was excellent, rooms were large and beds comfortable. The rooms were kept clean and neat with a nice selection of toiletries. The breakfast was very good and filling. The hotel is at a convenient location to I-95 and to the Fort Lauderdale beaches. Just a great place to spend a couple of nights

I can't say enough good things about this property. It was convenient for our travel to Miami, the beaches and around the local area. The facility has security that actually walks the property throughout the night. The breakfast was good and convenient. Only con breakfast should start at 5:30 am during the week for those who have early morning flights.

Room Tip: Serves breakfast. Friendly staff especially the house keepers. The king sizes rooms are huge. Req...

Really clean room. Comfortable beds with high quality linen. Nice furnishings and bathroom updated. Staff really nice. Breakfast bar with yogurt, cereals, hard boiled eggs and omelet, sausage, gravy and bisquits, pastries, great cinnamon rolls, muffins and breads, and pancakes that were very good freshly made on the spot by an automatic pancake maker; very cool. Wish they had more fresh fruit. Only one banana left when we arrived 30 min prior to closing of breakfast bar. No complaints. Great price when compared to other places, especially with breakfast.

Stayed here for 2 nights after flying in from the U.K.
It was easy to find from Miami Airport, and we received friendly service throughout our stay. We spent a couple of hours by the pool and we're really impressed with the really clean pool area surrounded by Palm trees.
A clean and comfortable room and a great breakfast. We love the warm cinnamon buns. The only minor issue we had was that our in-room guide said Saturday breakfast was from 6.30am, but when we got downstairs it was actually from 7am?
Also please be aware that if you are looking for an evening meal you do need to drive as there is nowhere within walking distance unless you like fast food.

Dear colinlyoung from UK,
First we want to thank you for staying with us. Thanks for the kind words and information you shared. Our Holiday Inn Express (1500 W Commercial Blvd, Ft Laud, Fl) is very easy to get to from Miami or Ft Laud International Airport. We are in a suburban area and a car is good. We do have many menus at the desk for delivery. Thanks for pointing out the printed time was wrong for our breakfast (it was a typo on the new inserts). We correct that immediately and check all our other rooms.
Again, we Thank You !!! Please come back to visit!
Safe Travels,
Jo Jean and Entire Staff

This was another great stay at the HIE! This hotel is very consistent with appearance, cleanliness and staff. It's always quiet which makes for a good nights sleep. I will be back next time I'm in the area.

We stayed here because it was close to family we were visiting. Hotel was clean and well cared for. Breakfast was typical buffet fare. Pool was very nice. Many cruisers stayed here and liked it. We would stay here again.
