“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This hotel was excellent. The service was friendly and they even allowed us to check in early. This was a huge help to us, as we were needing somewhere to put our luggage and relax for a little while. The room was spacious and very clean. The breakfast had lots of variety, including hot biscuits and gravy. I would highly recommend this hotel. If in the area again, we plan to come back! This was the relaxation you are supposed to feel while staying at a hotel.

First stay was great, we stayed 2 nights and then decided to stay the 3rd night there..... We were flying out of Fort Lauderdale on the Monday evening so we decided to stay from the Sat, 2 more nights. 5 nights out of a 10 nights holiday in Florida I guess says it all.

The only real problem I had was trying to get a smile from the front desk.... Cleaners Breakfast staff smiled all the time. The front desk were not smilers.

One other thing, if there is a third member of the group who going to use the pull out.... Pain in the back that sums it up. Worst bed in all my history of traveling. Lucky I had good friends who let me have a real bed....

Room Tip: Just be lucky, opt for ground floor good location for the pool

Dear Myidea62 from Sweden,
Thank You for staying with us. Sorry to hear the front desk staff not smiling. We try to make sure all guests are comfortable. Hide-a-bed couches are not the most comfy mattresses. We do have regular roll-a way beds that are full thick mattresses.
Regards and Safe Travels,

I go to ft. Lauderdale at least once every two months and I stayed at food hotels like the Westin, Marriott, etc. but this hotel has been by far the best. The front don't was very kind and patient, the breakfast was amazing, the room was clean, the cleaning lady was very kind. This hotel had everything you possibly needed even a laundry room that I needed. I can't believe I got this hotel for a such a great price for the quality .

This hotel was located in a perfect location. We explored the area by going on the ferry that was close by (having a tour of all the celebrity house was great), as well as had lunch at the lovely restaurant Gilberts 17th Street Grill, followed by a lovely dinner at Canyon Southwest Cafe.
The hotel has nice staff and great service. The beds were extremely comfortable as well as the wall being practically soundproof. The rooms in general we big and spacious, as well as constantly kept clean. The breakfasts were ok, however mainly consisting of cereal and other pre-prepared items.
Overall my stay here was great.

Dear Charlie2k13,
Thank You for the very nice review and all the 5-star votes you gave for each area. We think you may have stayed at a sister hotel on 17th street as we are not near the ferry and we are located in a suburban area 11 miles north of the airport. We thank you for staying at Holiday Inn Express and will alert them of this very nice review.
Sincerely,

We stayed here twice, the first was with three guys and the pull out bed is horrible, if you need this service, forget it. The second stay was with two guys and the room was great, beds were comfortable, most of the staff were very nice, but a couple grumpy men at the counter in the mornings was a dislike. I tried to get a smile from him several times, but he would have nothing of it and I tried for two days, some guys should just not be working the counter. Room was nice, breakfast was very nice. An all around nice place to stay and close to everything you need, very clean and close to the highway.

Thank You for the nice review. Glad you found the hotel clean and comfy the second time. So sorry that someone on our staff didn't smile.

I've been staying in this hotel about once per week since last September (2013) and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. The staff are great and make me feel at home every time I visit. When I arrive, Joseph at the front desk is always great, remembers my name and even though I'm away from home, he makes sure that my stay is as easy and comfortable as possible. The rooms are nice and clean and breakfast is always good in the morning.

Stayed here April 25 before our cruise. This hotel is very nice, we had good service from the Front desk. The breakfast bar was terrific. There were lots of breakfast choices, hot and cold and it was kept very tidy. The only downside for us was we didn't have a car. The hotel is not near the airport, the Cruise port or any restaurants, so would not be a good choice if you need to use taxi services. The taxis take between 20 - 30 min to come to the hotel as it is out of the way. I heard that they had great park and stay deals , so that would be a better choice.

Dear Maureen C from Toronto,
Thank You for the very nice review of our hotel. We appreciate your kind words about our service staff and our breakfast. We are located in a quiet area near the private Executive Airport (FXE), not the International airport. We do have great park and cruise rates during season to accommodate guests that want to leave a car for the week or longer.
Hope to see you again.
Thank You for staying with us!!
