Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Ft Lauderdale Beach, Fl Fort Lauderdale

Plano, TX

from

Well I got a real cheap price via pricelien aroudn $40 per night Dec 24-26, 2003...Haaving said that the rooms are bit dingy and do need upgrading as otehrs mentioned. Beds hurt our backs in the morning. All rooms do have a view of the ocean though. My brother in-law didnt have a reservation and paid $140...that is way too much for this place! The location is not bad because you are close to the water taxi service which can be found near the Galleria/Double Tree Hotel. You must do that $5 for day pass! There is a small mall also nearby wwhere you will find Sloppy Joe's and others off of A1A. lobby small and congested and pool small...but it is worth crossing the street and taking a wak by the beach.

In need of a facelift!

from

We stayed at this hotel Dec. 26/03 - Jan.02/04. Could not believe this was a Holiday Inn. Noisy and badly in need of a good cleaning, let alone renovating. While the beds were made daily (the sheets don't fit!), the washroom was not cleaned, nor did the carpets see a vacuum.

Same for the hallways and public areas. The staff was friendly and accommodating, especially Carl in the hotel's restaurant.

Desperate need of renovations

from

We were booked into this hotel because of a business meeting that was being held there.

The only reason I didn't give them a terrible mark was because the staff was very helpful and nice. Door slamming was a big thing in this hotel. When people left their rooms the doors slammed loudly and at 1:00 am that's a bad thing - it made the walls shake. The carpeting and chairs had numerous stains on them and the tub was in deperate need of Tilex, and the cover on the one the beds had a large hole in it. I could go on and on.

Rather Sleep on the Sidewalk

from

Even though I'm a Holiday Inn Priority Member, we were treated like vagrants at checkin. The suite that they assigned us needed massive renovation. The accommodations were nothing like any other Holdiay Inn where we previously stayed. The water from the fausets was brown and rusty and the suite smelled like rotten eggs. When we brought this to the Manager's attention, he simply stated that the water in Ft.

Lauderdale is always brown and the smell was caused by the carpets being recently cleaned. I know for a fact that this is not true. We pre-paid for four nites, but moved to another hotel on the beach after the first nite's stay. Avoid this hotel at all costs.

Will not recommend this hotel

from

Is this a real Holiday Inn Hotel? The room dirty, walls peeling and very poor acoustics. I did not get a good night sleep listening to the noise from the hallway. Will spend a few more bucks to stay in a nicer hotel next time.

Very nice hotel (get it on Hotwire)

from

Stayed here Sep 27 thru Sept 30. Very nice place with ocean view....maybe I got lucky but my room on the 11th floor was spotless.

Great location, the buses on AIA & Sunrise Blve make a rental car unnecessary, just don't go by the schedule b/c the buses are VERY erratic (be patient). Take a shared van from the airport for $8. I got this hotel for $42 plus taxes on "Hotwire", the 3 star hotel in the beach zone with 5 "ammenity icons" is the Holiday Inn. The pool is very small and there is no "business center", despite what they say. Unless you demand the best I think you will love this place, especially for the price. Plenty of places within walking distance to get food, beer, beach supplies, munchies, etc. E-mail me with questions.

Great location outside not so great in

from

The hotel looked great from the outside when we arrived on 11 sep 03.Room was in need of serious update,walls were dirty,carpets worn,windows dirty,matress marked.After third night complained that bedding had not been changed,changed on forth.Room was vacuumed on day five after complaining.Last two nights upgraded after bug found in bed.We were given free breakfast for last two days and free parking for the seven days, this did not really make up for our stay.Fauderdale was great though.

Clean, safe, and courteous

from

We stayed at the Holiday Inn on a weekend getaway without the kids. I was worried about what we might find. We found a great deal on airfare and this hotel so I wasn't sure what we were getting into. Yes, the place could use some paint, but please do you go to Florida to stay in your room???? The staff was very courteous and quick with any concerns we had. Our coffee maker didn't work the first morning, so as we were coming back from their breakfast (the one thing I wouldn't recommend) we stopped by the desk to inform them of this. When we got up to our room on the third floor someone was coming out of our room with our coffee maker to replace it. We were quite impressed!!! Most rooms have a view of the ocean that is beautiful!!! This was ideal for us. If you are wanting a luxury hotel, keep looking. But if you want a good deal with a clean, safe place to stay this is your place. CHeck out Primanti Bros. next door. They have the most incredible pizza and sandwiches ever!!! We ate lunch there every day!!!!!

Good value, great location

from

Stayed at this hotel last week of August, 2003. Very few hotel in area are actually on the beach. This one is on the other side of the beach highway...less than a block from the beach. All rooms are ocean view.

Food was adequate. We did check out four rooms before finding one not too loud. Try the middle of the building as high up as possible. All rooms were in pretty good shape, except for some stains (suntan lotion?) on some chairs and carpet. We booked through last minute Travelocity. Great price. We would stay at this hotel again. If you're fussy pay the price for a premium hotel. Lots to do in the area. The half day trip ($39 each) to the Everglades and an airboat ride was fun.

Water taxi is good, but gets tedious (slow) after awile. Good party bars nearby. Eat at the Bluefish...great Mahi Mahi sandwich.

Not so good!

from

The rooms are in strong need of renovation. You cant open the windows. The staff was okey. but no more. Nothing to do around the hotel. Parking in Ft Lauderdale is out of the question, so you must use the parking at the hotel. $12/day. Between the hotel and the beach runsA1A not very nice and this goes for all the hotels in Ft Lauderdale. So if you're going to Ft Lauderdaleyou can stay at this hotel its OK, however go to Miami Beach instead.

... to distract me...or use it to beat him about the head. Anyhoo, arrived at the Hilton on the beach but had to wait a while for my room to be ready. While I was waiting, I could feel my legs getting itchy. Mosquitoes, midges and the like never bite me, but here in South Florida, they have these things called "no see-ums" I've never seen one of these tiny monsters (hence the name) but they absolutely LOVE me. They've ...

... a car. It was the first time we have driven since December.

After four days in Fort Lauderdale, we hit the ICW again and headed to North Palm Beach, where we are currently residing. The cruise was not very long in terms of distance but the fact that we had to have 10 bridges opened along the way turned what should have been a five hour day into an eight hour day. The winds made it tricky to wait if we did not make a bridge opening. And those bridge tenders can be ...

... for Bob we ventured down Calle Ocho into the heart of Miami's Little Havana. Using my phone as a guide, we managed to see most of the recommended 'sights':13th Avenue green and cool and lined with monuments to among others, Jose Marti and the soldiers of the Bay of Pigs invasion, the walk of the stars, and the well-known Maximo Gomez, popularly known as Domino Park where the formerly all-male ranks have been joined by women.

Boarding the Amsterdam

We boarded the ship at around 3:30 in the afternoon – check-in was 1 pm. No line ups, no one around – walked up the gang plank only to be told that we can’t use the elevators and that we have to walk up one deck and go to position 12. No idea what’s going on. We walk by all kinds of people standing in front of various officers – we get to position 12 – they are just finishing ...

... brle for Dee and Ady, cheesecake for Nancy, and the special house dessert, The Love Boat, for Ron.

After dinner, we made a quick trip to the casino, each of us losing about $20. Ron also tried to win an iPad + $500 from a casino machine kind of like those stuff animal claw machines. He was not successful. It was around 8:30 p.m. but we were tired so back to the cabin and an early turn in.
