Quality Inn & Suites Airport / Cruise Port South
Ranked #38 of 72 Hotels in Hollywood
Reviewed 16 November 2012

We were looking for a pre-cruise and post-cruise hotel so we used TripAdvisor to find something that would work. Many of the hotels in this area run $150+ so when I saw the $99 rate I looked further. Reviews indicated it was adequate - and that's what it was, adequate. As others have noted, it needs some fixing up - painted over cracks in the walls, holes in the carpet, hard to shut doors just to name a few. The breakfast, again, was adequate.

My big complaint was the post-cruise experience. After disembarking and collecting our luggage, I called for pickup. Several more calls and almost two hours later, we finally were able to get a ride. Once at the hotel, we were informed that our rooms would not be ready for at least 3 hours (had I known I might have booked a local excursion). As it turned out it was well over 4 hours before we got our rooms.

Side note - there is a Taco Bell and McDonald's right next door but no close restaurants. There is also a strip mall with Big Lots and a sporting goods store behind them. It helped us to pass the time while waiting to get into our rooms.

The big plus for this property, the people. Eddie & Sue at the front desk were good and tried to be as helpful as possible. The bellman was also courteous and helpful in getting our bags to and from the room - we had 4 couples so it was a lot of baggage.

Would I stay there again? I probably would not. Spending a whole day waiting on this hotel was not what I had in mind. I'll pay more next time for a nicer place.

Room Tip: This is a 3 story property running length-wise away from the office. Look for rooms numbered in the...

Dear Howard4094,

The staff and management at Comfort Inn Ft. Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port South would like to thank you for the review posted on Trip Advisor. I am very happy to read that you found all our team members to be courteous and helpful. Every day I see them go above and beyond making sure all our guests receive the best customer service Ft. Lauderdale has to offer. In contrast, I am disappointed to read that you had shuttle problems returning to the hotel. The port can get quite hectic when we have 8 ships departing. We do our best to make sure all our guests get picked up promptly, but in your case we failed you and for that you have my apology. Thank you again and if given another try I am sure we could exceed your expectations.

Warmest Regards,
David Preston

Overall a good stay. the staff was great and Kim the bartender was the best. The hotel could use a little updateing and some detailing here and there. The on site snack bar served very basic but good food. The continental breakfast was good also, the toaster took forever to toast( one of those details ) all things being said we would stay here again.

Our flight had been delayed and we did not arrive in Fort Lauderdale until midnight. When I called for the complimentary shuttle the hotel informed me that the shuttle stops running at 11pm. On the Comfort Inn site it t states Free Airport Transportation without any time constraints. I can not review this hotel completely due to waiting for alternative transportation to the hotel.
We did not arrive to the Comfort Inn until approximately 2am. We left early that same morning. Also we were traveling with a two year old grandbaby and 2am in the morning was not a fun time...

We arrived in Ft. Lauderdale and had to stay overnight to catch a morning flight to Cuba. Even though we called for a shuttle, there was already one waiting which we were able to catch. Although the room and the door was a little dated and worn the room was comfortable. The Breakfast was fine with both an indoor and outdoor area to eat. The front desk staff was friendly and prompt even when dealing with large cruise crowds. The shuttle back to the airport was again prompt and on time.

The hotel staff was EXCELLENT!!!! we had a large group about 30 girls and we had a blast!! the shuttle was prompt and even went out of thier way to get us to the hard rock casino. The booking and shuttle to the port went super easy, However the shuttle back had some problems but they are and outside company from the hotel. I will book this hotel again for the next girls cruise however I am going to use a diffrent shuttle company

This place is a great bargain. The airport shuttle was prompt. Its not a luxury hotel, but the entire staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfy, even with 4 adults.The buffet breakfast ia a step above what you often get. It was nice to eat outside on the patio by the pool. The pool was clean and inviting. They offer free transfer to your ship. It can get a little crazy with lots of cruise passengers but they have it pretty well organized. Good idea to sign up for seats on the bus when you check in. They also offer $10 transfers to the airport post cruise, or free shuttle returning to hotel if you are staying after your cruise. The thank you email I received after our stay was a nice touch too. I will definately stay here again as we plan on doing more cruises based out of Florida.

We stayed here before our recent cruise. We liked the fact they had frees shuttles from the airport and to the cruise port. Also for a extra $10 pp fee you can be shuttled to the airport from the cruise port.That worked very well.

Hotel was a basic place. Don`t expect fancy. Saw a few things that could have been fixed. Things that could turn off some. But not us. We will use the hotel again when coming to Ft. Lauderdale.
