As many of you know, my hearing isn’t the greatest, so I often hear something other than what is actually said, like when I heard that Obama had gone to see the Dead Sea Squirrels.
My hard of hearing story for today: “You can buy beer for a dollar or soap for four dollars.” Is he telling people to wash with beer? I realized he was saying soda.
By the way, I really hate typing on this little netbook. ...
CAPTAIN SLOG 83.13
Up with the seagull's **** this morning! I had tried to order brekkie in the cabin but there was no service this morning.
I decided to hit the buffet before the rush at 6.30 am.
So did everyone else.
This day had been very strange. Waking up, leaving my house and family-it all felt strange. Not strange in a bad way necessarily, but strange in the way where I couldn't process the events to come. I don't think I've fully processed yet that I'm going to be abroad in a foreign country for 3 months with a family I've never met or even spoken to. Nonetheless, it's happening whether my brain processes it or not.

At the airport, we get a taxi from the taxi-line, and end up with a thoroughly unpleasant black guy, who hardly acknowledges we are there, won't listen to where we want to go, won't look at the map, and grudgingly turns down the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Ft Lauderdale Beach, Fl Fort Lauderdale
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!
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
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
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
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)
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
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.
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!!!!!
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.
Not so good!
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.
