Quiet hotel

Pros: Staff very friendly. Beds comfy. Clean. Breakfast awesome, not the same everyday, offered salami,cheese,kielbasa,eggs,waffles,sausage,cereal,yogurt
Cons: Bathrooms in rooms could use updating, epoxy on floor of our tub was worn off, wished I would have brought shower shoes.
Location: We had a car, drove to pier at LBS, many restaurants nearby.
We liked the peacefulness and the cleanliness of BW. Never felt crowded, able to relax and unwind. Breakfast delicious, nice way to start your day. Pool warm and maintained. We had a pool view room (5th floor) with a balcony, nice to check weather the weather in the a.m. and sit and talk while warm late night breezes washed over you. I'm not a fan of public beaches on vacation, I prefer an oceanfront hotel with a private beach for the convenience of running back to room for forgotten items and nice restrooms. You have to use the public beach which is a short walk. Overall a nice place to stay.

Great Breakfast, horrible bar staff.

The hotel checkin staff and the housekeeping staff were very friendly and professional. The room was clean and the breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. The restaurant/bar staff was horrible. Rude and unwilling to provide service two nights in a row. This was a older male and he didn't seem to care to make any money and was unprofessional in all areas.

Close to Shopping & Beaches

Pros: Great location, quiet, nice complimentary breakfast.
Cons: Renovations are currently underway.
Location: The beach is nearby and popular Las Olas Boulevard and the Galleria shopping mall are short drives.
The hotel was under construction, which mainly effected parking (dusty) and the lobby (temporarily moved). The room was fine, average, not yet remodeled, and the beds were comfortable.

Mixed experience, but good rooms and good value

If you just want to be a beach bum, or have a conference at the Marriott next door and want to pay half the price, this is great. Rooms were just remodeled. Ground floor is being remodeled and the temporary lobby is pretty bad, and made worse by the chaotic behavior of the staff, non-working computers, and TV with volume on. Again, once you ignore this hurdle, the guest floors are all good.

The room we stayed in was musty especially when the ac was running. The hotel staff wasn't very friendly. At breakfast there's someone cleaning up the tables and asking your room number to make sure that you're actually staying there. The lady that was there everyday of our stay wasn't friendly and seemed like she'd rather be anywhere else. The hotel was only a few minute walk to the beach which was nice.

The hotel was just as relaxing as I had hoped!

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet, beachside location, short cab-ride to the airport
Cons: No free Internet, the center of downtown is about a 15-minute walk
It's location is under a two-minute walk to the beach, which was perfect, and you couldn't beat the quality for the price. Complimentary breakfast was more than I had anticipated, with a hot line, make your own waffles, toast, bagels, cereal, fruit and yogurt, as well as the usual morning beverages. The pool at the hotel was also clean and well-kept. Overall, I would most definitely return.

an easy walk to the beach

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
If you are looking for an inexpensive place to sleep, this is it. This hotel is a good value in terms of location and cost. The poolside restaurant/bar was convenient and the food was good even though the menu was limited. One of the drawbacks is the building is old and needs a major rehab. Also, there was a hotel going up right next door to us so there was construction noise and debris on our side of the hotel. There are no views of the ocean since newer properties have been built up practically on top of the hotel obscuring views and breezes. Parking is limited and the spaces themselves are tight for todays larger vehicles. Access to downtown Ft Lauderdale and area attractions are easy to get to.
