“Excellent”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

The stay at this hotel was the best one that I stayed in, it is very clean and bug free, the personnel that works here is very very friendly and helpful with everything, the atmosphere is very family welcoming, the hotel is near to a lot of great tasting restaurants and only a minute away from the beach by foot. It was an awesome experience and stay here, and I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a great night stay, the owner too is a great friendly guy who is always willing to give a helping hand or advice on where to eat and visit. Great place :)

In 35 years of travelling to Florida this has been one of our favourite places to stay. We have discovered a Gem-the Great Escape Inn. The Great Escape Inn management and staff should be considered an example for other hotels of how to make a vacation experience truly enjoyable for patrons. You can't beat the location-restaurants, beach, pier, shopping plazas, etc. were all within walking distance. We spent many enjoyable hours just sitting in the Lauderdale by the Sea main square which has now been completely redeveloped. In the square we enjoyed a U.S. Thanksgiving dinner on a beautiful day in an open-air restaurant.

Room Tip: This was our first stay there and we stayed in an excellent room by the pool with a king size bed an...

Basic older facility with no frills but,kept clean & priced accordingly. Good neighborhood but, security measures could be better i.e., leaving room unlocked for late arrivals w/ keys on table, no peepholes & traditional keys.

I cannot say enough good things about The Great Escape! It is a smaller property, very meticulously maintained, newly updated, and great pool area! Everything is clean, bright and gorgeous. All of their little touches around the property impressed us to no end, including complementary beach chairs, sun screens and large beach towels to use during our stay. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and the other guest staying there are equally as friendly. I could not have asked for a better place to have stayed. The beach is just a short walk away, including a newly renovated pier with delicious restaurants and great atmosphere!

Room Tip: If you are looking for longer stay accommodations, they have available a two bedroom penthouse suite...

I was able to walk to beautiful clean beaches, one minute away! Walking a little farther on the beach brought me to great restaurants and a park and city center. Mark and the other staff were very friendly, accessible, and helpful whenever I wanted assistance. The room was comfy and clean. The bedding was especially comfy. I slept so well! During the day there's lots of traffic on the street. But it seems to disappear at night. It was always very quiet when I wanted to sleep.

Place is very clean and nice in very good location. Beach is just 2 min. Room is big with big bed and kitchen. Pool is nice. Personal very friendly. Negativ is just no breakfast in hotel and pool is too open so ppl from street look in.

I have now stayed at the Great Escape Inn (GEI) while I attending the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show for 2 consecutive years. The GEI is a nice clean inn with a friendly and courteous staff and priced right. I stay in the 2 bedroom suite, equipped with a full kitchen, several flat screen TV's and a comfortable living room which allows me to entertain guest as well as offer clients a place to stay if needed. GEI is centrally located on A1A next to the beach and is surrounded by many excellent local restaurants and diners as well as a grocery store 1 block away for in-room dining. I highly recommend The Great Escape whether for business or pleasure, it's a great place to stay and is definitely the best bang for your buck in Ft. Lauderdale.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom suite is what works best for me, but I'm sure all the rooms are kept in the same k...
