“Great Escape Inn Lauderdale By The Sea”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

My Wife and I stayed there from June 17 - July 18, 2013. The experience was EXCELLENT in all areas. I checked the reviews and photos before booking and the pictures on their web site are accurate. The rooms are immaculate and kept clean by the staff daily. We had a one bedroom apartment, which was beautiful. We saw all the rooms and they were all spotless and have beautiful furniture. The staff are Robyn, Sakaya and Nadine. At the Inn the Staff and Management, Mark & Cindy, are very friendly and there to help in any way possible. The Inn has a pool, kept clean, and a barbaque plus outside tables with umberallas and a nice fountain. They supply beach chairs, umberalla and beach towels. Definatelly returning to this Inn and highly recommend this Inn. The beach is two minutes away. Restaurants and night life are within walking distance plus Publix is a minute walk. The best place we have ever stayed because of cleaniless and friendly staff and rates. We made new friends with the staff, thank you. Highly recommend!!!

Trying to attach a picture but unable to at this time. Will add later.

This place was right where we wanted to be, super close to the beach dowmtown area and pier. It is clean, well kept, updated and friendly.
We will definitely make this our place to stay when we come back.

This is our third time staying here this year. It feels like family. We're in the room we stayed in the first time and the new flooring is beautiful. Again, the staff is great and very accommodating. We are two blocks from the beach, shopping center across the street and restaurants and shops a few blocks away. Great place to stay!

I'll just second everything good that the other reviewers have said about this hotel! The room was exactly as pictured on the website. Everything was very clean and new, including the fully equipped kitchen. Looking at this place from the street you may not stop there but it is an upscale room and service. Easy 1block walk to the beach. The pool is near the street but there is a low fence and bushes for privacy. Could not hear street noise with ac in the 1st fl studio room. We felt very comfortable and at home here.

We stopped at the Great Escape Inn on our way to Key West. We would never have considered this place with out the help of Trip Advisor. It was very clean and a great value. Since it was the off season for this area it was also quite and there was only one other couple in the pool. It is an easy walk to the beach and restaurants. We will definitely stay here again.

Stay-cay on the beach was the plan.Thought local motel to save money and didn't expect to have so many of the little details you get at the big hotels.The customer care was amazing down to the smallest details ! giving beach chairs ,towels and lotion helping with the bags .Very clean beautiful little get away .Near the best local resturants in the area real jamacian music and nightlife! and a stones through to the beach .The nicest people on the staff ..always asking if you need anything.. I can't wait to go back! The owner on premise and very active in making everyones stay the best!

Room Tip: I had the full room with kitchen .I think its a great way to go!

we originally booked for one night to help break the trip between Orlando,miami beach and Key West,and as we had had enough of Orlando,we called them and luckily they had a room free so we left Orlando and drove down.....after a long drive we received a warm welcome,immediate directions to the beach and local shops etc. We were supplied with beach towels,beach chairs and umbrella and we headed straight to the beach about 5 mins away...great! It was only when we returned to the Great Escape that we had a good look at the room....it was spotlessly clean and fresh with a good sized flatscreen tv.We were on the ground floor,just a few steps from the pool which was just the right temperature for a dip and with sun loungers all around.The little courtyard outside with tables and chairs and also umbrellas to give some shade to chill and have a cool drink. The Great Escape is well named,as that is exactly what it felt like! We will be staying there again on our last night before heading back to the UK after Miami Beach and Key West...top marks to Great Escape......Great Value,attention to detail,but most of all....spotlessly clean

Room Tip: If you smoke,choose a ground floor room with just a few steps to the courtyard with tables and chair...
