Better than i thought

Based on other reviews i was expecting a total dump, was pleasantly surprised, the lobby and pool area was better than i expected. The pool and beach areas were pretty nice. The rooms seemed like they could use updating, tiny bathroom area, old carpeting , loud air conditioning unit, but didn't plan to spend much time in room other than to sleep anyways. Restaurants and tiki bar expensive.

Books on bedding at check in. Housekeeping only 1 day out of 3. They didn't empty trash on that day. 2nd stay here. In Florida to sit on beach. Had to rent chairs from another vendor. Safe locked at check in. Couldn't use. Overall disappointed. Come every couple years. Next time will try different hotel.

Vacation near the beach!!

Upon arrival my hotel was clean and everyday housekeeping came by. My room had a balcony with a partial ocean view which was amazing. Easy access to the beach which was always clean. No complaints here, I enjoyed by stay!

Would not stay again.

The room was not clean, very run down, only one elevator worked. Also, the beach was incredibly steep and small, lots of cigarettes as well. Staff was friendly so that's a positive. Nearest shopping/things to do were a mile away.

The staff was nice and the hotel was clean. That's about it. The room was small and noisy. I could hear every conversation in the adjoining room, the air condioning was so loud, it woke us up every time it turned on The bathroom sink was so small, you had nowhere to put your toiletries. The chairs in the room looked as if they weren't cleaned in years. I will never use travelocity again. We booked seats on the plane, only to get different seats when we got on the plane. Very disappointed

Nice hotel close to Ft. Lauderdale Airport and por

Pros: The view and access to the ocean and the location.
Cons: FIRE ALARM!! Hopefully that has been fixed so all floors are alerted and communication from the staff.
Location: Close to the airport and cruise port. It looked like there was a lot of restaurants close by but we came in late and left early the next day.
We stayed at this hotel because we were leaving on our cruise the next day so we picked it based on the location and reviews we had read. The room was fine a bit dated but clean. The location on the beach though was beautiful. The big issue we had was that the fire alarm went off around 5:30 in the morning and wen my husband and myself left our room to go out side there were barely any people out there which was odd. There was no communication from the staff no fire truck came and the people we where travelling with never came down. The reason they didn't was that no alarm went off on their floor or anyone else's just ours. Which is a big deal if there was an actual fire and people needed to vacate the hotel. This explained why there was so few people outside, so we waited the noise of the alarms out and sat outside by the ocean until they stopped. Again no communication from the staff or an apology. I would hope that this issue was looked at and fixed right away for the safety of their patrons.
