“newlyweds on a budget...........”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

I am not great at writing reviews but here we go:
it was our honeymoon and the hotel was told in advance and were able to give up an upgraded room (two full bedrooms, two balconies with view and two bathrooms )
Arrived at FLL airport we didn't rent a car ( if you want freedom to roam the streets and stuff get one) they charge for self park and valet at the hotel though)
We had a GREAT time. We went the week of 9/14/2013 (weather was so so).
Pros: friendly staff , free breakfast buffet ( with waffle station), 2 pools , 1 whirl pool, spa on site , fitness center (w/view) balcony was able to fit 2 small chairs and round table (w/view of the ocean), washer and dryer in suite ( had a 2 bdrm suite), comfy beds, large clean bathroom, fully equipt kitchen ( including pots, pans and storage containers),dishwasher, plenty of closet space, Monday-Wends evenings there were small appitizers.
Cons: balcony only big enough for two ( which was fine for us), lobby is small, parts of the bldg. are in need of a little updating, Not close to many things walking, charge for self parking, no hotel shuttle (cost $50 each way hotel will give you phone#'s), limited food options.
Helpfully hints: go in person (4th floor) to make spa appt., Publix food store 1.5 miles away (taxi $7-10 each way) go stock up you have stove top and full fridge.
over all we had a great time eating outside or overlooking the beach, we drank a cocktail on the balcony every night and relaxed walking the beach and playing like kids in the ocean!
I would definitely go back with others as a group.

Room Tip: The higher the room the better. You can see even with ocean view room. taxi. or shuttle services abo...

OMG....Recently stayed with friends for a 2 day weekend...It was perfect...The SPA offered manicure and pedicure services and what a wonderful way to pamper yourself as you looked out at the ocean.....The rooms were spacious and the view from the balcony was oh , so nice...
Pools, whirlpool felt so good....and refreshing....Hot and cold breakfasts were good,too. Staff friendly and helpful....The only "con" was it just didn't last long enough....We'll definitely come back again....I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Our family of grown-ups occupied 2 two bedroom suites overlooking the ocean. The lighthouse by night and the kite surfers by day enhanced our views. The beach was clean and the mild surf appropriate for all ages. The staff was friendly and attentive. We all enjoyed the free breakfast while we organized our day's activities. The pools and whirlpool were right next to the Inn and the beach a short stroll through the sand dunes. A rental shoppe next door provided options of paddle boards, sea doos, and a small catamaran. Beach land is very expensive, so the hotel uses valet parking to maximize use of the space and minimize damage to cars. The valets were invariably cheerful and very prompt to park or retrieve our car.

Room Tip: 2 room suites face the beach directly, all other rooms have an angled view of it.

With spacious two room suites, and a great spa The Residence Inn at Pompano Beach is a terrific place to stay. The SPA offered manicure and pedicure services as you look out at the ocean. Great spa staff, beautiful clean rooms, a good breakfast, large bathrooms, closets and even a washer dryer in the room, standard wi fi at no extra charge. Great value.

OMG. It doesn't get much better than this. Arrived on Friday night for a two week vacation. Asked for a two room ocean view suite and instead got a two bedroom ocean front suite along with two bathrooms, three TV's, two phones and a full kitchen. We were on the ninth floor and the view of the ocean and beach were breath taking. Jacob the night time supervisor took the time to make us feel right at home. The staff goes out of their way to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

We didn't really understand why the parking is only valet. We do now. The property where the hotel resides is very tight as the building lays length wise from the street to the beach. It is very narrow and parking is a premium. No biggie. We are spending three grand on the hotel so what's a few more dollars for parking.

There is an area in the lobby for breakfast (all free) and a restaurant open most of the day serving lite fare and very good. Two pools and quite a large beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available. Three days a week there is drinks and lite fare in the lobby.

We especially enjoyed being up so high and laying in bed while it was lightening outside. Rained just about every day but only for 20 minutes or so. There are only 90 units so you never feel crowded. A spa and gym are available. Shopping is available within minutes.

We would definitely stay here in the future and recommend it to our friends.

I recently stayed here with a friend for a 4 day weekend. It was perfect, right on the beach. We were lucky enough to stay in a suite w/2 bedrooms/2 baths. The entire staff from Valet to housekeeping, guest services and the guys running the water sports were extremely nice and friendly. In fact, everyone we encountered in Pompano (CVS, Publix, etc) were so friendly. The suite was Very clean w/a few minor exceptions (normal wear & tear scuff marks on door frames/moldings, etc) We did have a slight issue with the shower liners each being quite moldy. However we called guest services and in less than 5 minutes a friendly staff member replaced them both with fresh, new ones. Also , one night the remote control stopped working. I called down for new batteries and again, in about 5 minutes, it was replaced with a brand new one. The views were spectacular from the balconies. There are lounge chairs on the beach for your use (free) but the umbrellas are $10 (I thought extremely reasonable) . I don't know how much the cabanas were as I didn't use them. It wasn't overly populated, which was nice. Someone else mentioned lots of pets here.. I only saw 2 dogs on the beach and they were down by another hotel. I never saw any dogs/pets on this property. I would definitely stay again.. having a washer and dryer in the suite was totally convenient!

Room Tip: I stayed on 4th floor, nicer views, the higher up you are

Lovely resort, beautiful beach, really nice breakfast, great staff but it is all spoiled with all the dogs they allow to stay there. I am a dog lover but they do not belong at a resort. The barking both in and outside, dogs @ breakfast??!!? I don't think that is right. Owners do not pick up after them and dog poop on the beach, yuk. One woman had 2 full-grown beautiful golden retrievers and let them poop right on the beach early AM. Just walked away and didn't clean up after them. I think Residence Inn needs to take a second look at their policy regarding allowing pets. My husband has allergies and when you stay in a room that has been occupied by dogs it is impossible. Will never stay here again.
