This is a great place to stay. We have previously stayed at another place in LBTS in December and it seemed old and worn. Not the Sea Lord. We had a regular room for one night and it was really nice--soft sheets, great plush comforter, a separate vanity area from the bathroom, there was a microwave and small fridge. Everything was super clean and looked new. My husband liked that there was a safe that was easy to figure out. I would have preferred the TV across from the bed but it was fine. The pool was also very clean and delightful, and of course, the hotel is right on the ocean and the private beach is lovely. I did not even know until we were there that breakfast was included, and that was convenient--the fresh fruit was that--fresh. There was some noise from our neighbors, but it was after 8:00 AM and we were awake, so that was all right. One point off for the somewhat snarky guy who checked us in, making it obnoxiously clear we had to check out by 11:00. Ok, we got it! I might have sensed that people who stayed for one night weren't appreciated as much as people who stayed four nights. On the other hand, the woman at the front desk who printed out directions to the restaurant we wanted to go to was very helpful. We live in Miami and enjoy a getaway now and then. We will be back.

Checked in, hotel was under construction, and lobby was not clearly marked. Check in was a breeze, very friendly desk people. Room was small, but ok. For the most part it was pretty clean, the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner though. The price paid definitiely did not equal what I thought the room was worth.

recently back from the sealord. nice little hotel right on the beach that is within walking distance of several restaraunts/bars. had a great time. the staff was very helpful and friendly. always a smile on their faces. booked a king standard room with no ocean view or balcony. this was fine for us as usually we spend all day on the beach. the bed was comfortable and the room was clean and modern.

Thank you for sharing such wonderful comments on your recent stay at The Sea Lord Hotel & Suites.

We are delighted to know that our staff provided you with attentive service and that you also admired our beautiful property. All our rooms are updated, clean and tastefully furnished, extending the utmost comfort for any type of traveler. But, what makes us so special is an amazing location. 150 feet of private beach lay in front of you when you step from the pool deck. I'm sure that's where you had been spending most of your time. We are looking forward to see you again!

Sincerely,
Olga

Recently my husband,myself and our 8 year old daughter decided to take an overnight trip to the beach 30 minutes from our home. We wanted to spend time in the sun and on the beach. So we chose this hotel based on a recommendation from an older friend of ours who heard about it. Unfortunately she did not see it, so we booked it based on the pictures from the website.However, they only showed large rooms or suites and when we booked they only had a deluxe standard room available and normally rents out for 4 nights minimum, but they said we could have it for the one night (Sunday) that we would be there and charged us $180 + tax. The hotel itself was not glamorous but it was clean and we felt it would suffice for one night. That was util we saw our room, that was when we found it. It was tucked in a corner behind a door that said 403-404 but did not have the card key lock so we asked for help and the housekeeper opened the door for us and we were in a tiny little alcove with another door to room 403, we were 404. When we entered the room we were majorly disappointed ,it was smal dark and smelled.We had no balcony and our only windo looked out on the public walkway for hotel guests. The people next to us (snowbirds) had full kitchens and everything they cooked seeped into our air vent into our room. In the morning we heard the people on the otherside of us go to the bathroom, brush there teeth, we could smell the mint, make coffee we could smell that also and then came breakfast all of the smells from both rooms. We left that room at 8:30 am and never returned! Our recommendation is to ask to see the rooms before signing anything and if they try to put you into room 404 say NO.

Thank you for taking the time to share such valuable feedback as we find this to be a most useful tool in our efforts to continuously improve the service we provide to our guests. We have reviewed your comments and we are disappointed that we did not meet your expectations.

We have rooms of different sizes, ranging from standard rooms to oceanfront suites. While our guest rooms, the room type you reserved, are indeed smaller than our suites, we often receive positive reviews on the spaciousness of our accommodations. Indeed, our guest rooms are larger than most comparable hotels in the vicinity. Our guests have different needs during their stay and usually for shorter stays like yours they are willing to sacrifice space and views for just being able to walk from a pool deck right to the beach. Considering the difference in price between guest rooms and oceanfront rooms, it’s really worth it. How much time do you really spend in the room when it’s 80 degrees outside and the ocean awaits you? If we had had any oceanfront apartments available at that time, you would have enjoyed your stay more. I regret that it wasn’t a pleasant experience for you. I have noted the areas we can improve on and have addressed them with our entire management team.

I hope you give us the opportunity to restore your confidence in us and will look forward to having you stay with us again. Kindly, please do not hesitate to contact me personally at (954) 776 1505, or at reservations@sealordhote.com, when you need another beach getaway and I will be happy to take care of all of your arrangements. I’m sure you can have a better experience with us.

Regards,
Olga

If you want total relaxation, location,beachfront, friendly atmosphere, breakfast complimentary, and sharing conversations with people whom many are returning guests year after then I would highly recommend this facility. It is remarkable everything is spotless. The hotel has gone through a complete renovation. Hospitality from the owner Emil and his staff is terrific. You are only a few short blocks from the Town Square of Lauderdale by the Sea with an impressive array of restaurants and shops. The town is quaint and vibrant every Friday evening with a closed down square with musical entertainment.
During our stay the maintenance staff was always checking hallway lights, watering plants, or attending to other areas of the hotel. That is impressive. Everyone takes pride in their role. Breakfast include fresh eggs,fruit, bagels, waffles. and sausage.
The pool is relaxing and is kept at a temperature where you can just step in. More improvements are going on with a brand new lobby. Finding something this nice was truly a blessing. I will return.
We hated to pack and return home to winter.
