"Super clean hotel, next to FLL airport and port."
Got in very late, so we could not take advantage of the airport shuttle (last one is at midnight), but the taxi ride was short and the cost was not astronomical. Staff knew who I was when I walked in the door - probably because of the phone calls I made to make sure the shuttle was not available.
Room was really spacious, internet code worked and the internet was fine (we did not use it extensively). Great night's sleep - comfortable bed - really enjoyed the choice of soft/firm pillows they provided. Shower was fine.
Really enjoyed breakfast.
Small miscommunication about the shuttle to the port - the staff assumed I was going to the Fort Lauderdale port, I thought they knew I was going to the Miami port ... the cost per person to the Miami port is ... over $80 ... so, with 4 of us, it made more sense to drive and park at the port. If we had been going to the Ft Lauderdale port, it would have been great to leave the car at the hotel and take the shuttle to the port.
Staff was accommodating when we figured out the mix-up and immediately refunded the parking fee that I had paid - and, we were on the road to the Miami port within minutes of figuring out we would need to drive.
Comfortable room, clean, quiet and felt safe. Near public transportation, beach and very pretty landscaping. Staff very helpful and considerate. Had a shuttle at the site for transport to the dock for our cruise. It was very reasonable and they were very helpful and considerate. Walgreens nearby for last minute supplies. Used the public transport and the trolley for travel to he beach and to Lauderdale by the sea. Ate dinner there and enjoyed that as well. Sat at the beach with umbrella and chairs, a bit pricey for the day f rental. Ate locally at the beach at the Drunken Taco and enjoyed the sites from there, so close to the beach, walked and could watch our beach supplies and people swimming and playing. Many local restaurants and bars along the way. Ate dinner one night at local Mexican restaurant that was very good and the decorations inside and out were awesome, the lamp fixtures were beautiful. Staff very friendly. Prices reasonable and food very good. Staff very pleasant. Enjoyed our rip to the Caribbean on Oasis of the seas, amazing ship. Staff very helpful and friendly. Weather was beautiful and the skies were clear. Water temperature was great. People were surfing and swimming, water very clear. Not too crowded either, had plenty of space. Hotel was close to all that were wanted, also found golf cart guys that could transport you all around for a fee that was always negotiable. Prices a bit high along the beach at stores, but many places to see
We took the hotel shuttle bus from the airport (but if you don't want the hassle of waiting for the bus I doubt a taxi would be too costly as it's not far) and on arrival at the hotel were checked in by a very helpful and cheerful staff member, always a bonus after a long flight. Our room was clean and spacious and the bed was very comfortable which meant a good night's sleep for us both. We were within walking distance of the local eateries and if you need to pick up toiletries for your cruise there is a Walgreens nearby. Really good self serve breakfast too! For a small charge it was easy to arrange a shuttle to the cruise terminal the following morning so all in all, I would recommend this hotel for anyone needing to stay a night or two before their cruise.
We were not expecting much as we had heard some not so favourable reviews about this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised as it was much better than expected. The check in was fast and easy. Staff very friendly and recommended places to eat. Room was clean and neat and bed was comfortable. The included breakfast was very good and the free transportation to the cruise port was an added bonus.

the motel is outdated, but very good for the price, right next to it is a car dealership that sells luxury cars like Ferraris, Bentleys, Porsches, McLarens and other makes of supercars, there is a Publix supermarket and a 24 hour Walgreen's pharmacy within a few walking steps, nearby a Wendy's, Dunkin' Donuts and more,
the room had a mini fridge and microwave oven, the beds were comfortable, the TV was an old tube type 27", the wifi internet was not very good, it cuts out every few minutes, there's free parking in the motel's lot right in front, I didn't see any bugs, room was quiet the time I stayed around May 3, free breakfast was 7am to 10am, basic coffee, muffins frozen bagels etc.
I would stay here again.
