Reviewed 14 August 2007

My family and I stayed at this hotel for one night and we were appalled at the conditions of the room. The room had a strong odor of carpet deodorizer that gave me a headache. The sink in the bathroom was cracked and there was mold all over the shower walls. My son went into the bathroom in the middle of the night and saw the hugest cockroach ever in the sink.
The sheets had stains on them so we slept on top of the blankets and all of the furniture was ancient. The pool was old and looked dirty.
We plan on writing a letter to the corporate office to inform them of the horrible conditions. The only good part about this hotel was when we checked out!
I would not recommend this hotel to a homeless person.

PS. If you ride on the elevator, you take your life in your hands as part of the floor is completely rotted through.

Because of the many bad reviews we went to the hotel to check and see just how bad it was. We were greeted with very good hospitality by Nadine at the desk and asked to see a a room with a fridge. (diabetic)
We were given the keys to room 3003 and opened the door to one of the nicest rooms we have stayed in at regular motels.
NEW carpet, NEW A/C with temp. control for room temp. Freshly painted walls, NEW clean bed clothes on king size bed. All furniture looked new. The vanity area had granite counter tops.
There was a new microwave and new small fridge in the room.
Nice large T/V with cable connection.
We plan to stay there again for our next cruise and look forward to the next trip.
Do not beleive every thing that others say in comments about this hotel.

Stayed: May 2007

Ended up there. After they had shut down the roads in Fort Lauredale and we had no access to the city.
The receptionist asked whether we needed a double bed or two twins (I assume by his question that he did indeed have king beds rooms vacant). We said that we needed a double bed. He saw two men and he said that they had none. Ignorance and homophobic behaviour is a shame for America.
Room smelt of curry!

My buddy and I were looking to find a cheap place to stay and this worked out fine. Now if it were for myself and fiance, then probably would go somewhere else. Never felt like I was in danger, but have definitely stayed in better places. FYI, if you are flying in and staying for a few days, I would rent a car. This place is far enough from airport and beach to warrent.

A nightmare! If you could sleep. Besides worrying about safety, the conditions were atrocious! The bathroom door was delaminating, so any attempt at functioning was accompanied by a horrendous noise. There were cigarette burns everywhere (linens, sink, tub) in a non smoking unit, as well as cigarettes (unsmoked) under the bed. We had to push the beds together since the rollaway we requested months in advance wasn't provided, and noone slept. The poor cleaning was evident upon moving the beds. The traffic noise was terrible, and the a/c unit was struggling to provide comfort even in a not so warm weather situation. My family protested vehemently about spending the night, but given our travel plans, we arrived too late to modify them. I would never stay at this location again.

Just about everything was broken in the room (including the a/c in Florida!) and water was leaking from above. The bathroom water came out brown even after running it. The place had a musty filthy smell. Worse yet were the ghetto people who seem to live here: blasting boom boxes and "hanging out" all night. The management office locks its door at night and who can blame them? Considering how shoddy this place it, the rates are no bargain. I paid before seeing the room and am not hard to please but almost screamed when I entered it- it was like someone tried to wreck it. Heed the sign "NO REFUNDS"
