So, we've been sailing now for 6+days & I have to tell ya - if a person isn't relaxed by this point, there's something wrong with them! This has been a lovely trip so far - despite both Jim & I dealing with minor colds the last few days - I'm pretty much recovered. Jim's closer. We both baked in the sun yesterday & napped a lot on our deck - very soothing listening to the ocean. Food on board is better than it was on ...

Today was another travel day to our last state of the tour, Florida! It was a long, broken up day. First we had a 2 hour drive to Boston airport where we were getting a flight at 11:20 to Miami. When we reached Miami we had another drive to Deerfield Beach which took another 2 hours because of traffic, we arrived just after 17:00. Today's hotel was I think the worst we have stayed in on the whole tour, dirty ...
... it's quite a nice place and very bustling and busy. Popped in to Hooters for a beer and some food right on the beach front. Could have sat there all day. Then back to the water taxi which we were told drops us of at Port Everglades which was great, that's where we were docked. We picked up the 13.30 water taxi and had to be back on board for 15.30 so bags of time :) NOT. After getting of the taxi the short walk turned out to be 3 1/2 miles. As we ...
... Matt hit the gas and before we could even get up to cruising speed, the engines started blowing smoke so our sea trial was over before it could properly begin.
The first mate turned us around and we headed back to the canals, there was a bit of a problem as where to return to dock, but eventually after cruising up and down the waterways we found a new shop to dock at. I've never been on a luxury cruiser before and it was hard to believe that you were ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Park Hotels & Suites Deerfield Beach
I stayed one weekend and had me quite a pleasant experience. The staff was so friendly and the weather...ooooo... to die for. Some scandalous activity was witnessed around the pool... as I saw to middle-aged men having intercourse in the pool area. I cracked me a beer open, and enjoyed the free porn. My GF liked it as well.
Plus, I made friends with one of the maids, rosetta. She said that the rooms would be cleaned everyday... apparently I didn't tip enough... as I found fecal matter in my shoe on the last day of my stay. However, I will definately return!
But... this is not very family oriented... definately a place for those who like to get loose and laid back.
This is not a resort hotel - but, for an extremely low price, it is a perfectly acceptable place to stay if all you need is a bed and a shower (although there are plenty of folks vacationing). I am a middle-aged woman who has stayed here about a half dozen times in the past year, for 3 nights each time, when I'm visiting my mother. Each time, I got the no smoking room that I requested and the staff honored my requests for a room in a "visible" location. The rooms are clean, with fresh towels, etc. every day. The staff are fine. A room near the pool/outdoor bar might be noisy - I avoid them. The rooms are not perfect - a drawer in the dresser may be broken, tiles might be patched in the bathroom, the walls are thin (surprise!) and sometimes there's a musty smell. Once the room smelled badly - but they gave me a different one immediately. When I read the other reviews for low end hotels/motels in Deerfield, every one of them seems to be worse, and more expensive. I've never had the free breakfast. Is this the Ritz, no. Is it good value for the monye? YES!
I had e -mailed 3 or 4 times to this place making sure they has enough room to park a semi and a trailer and all 3 or 4 times they had told me "yes" they have ample parking. So 2 days before our journey i phoned and asked the manager personally if they had enough room and again they told us yes we can accomidate you, so i booked. Well when we got there they told us No way can they accomidate us, and sent us to the weselley inn ( sp?) they told us that they will ahve room. So we make our way next door and the lady told us that " No, i told them we don't have enough room". So we were out of luck. We managed to go up to vero beach and found a place that was nice with more amenities then them. Boy is that frustrating expecially since i put the time and effort into e-mailing and phoning there and not any easier when you are driving around in a semi!!!
Still haven't gotten the smell off
The first room we got smelled like urine so we asked for a new room, we got one but all they had was smoking so it wasn't too much better. There was a line around the corner in the cramped "buffet" room, it took 20 minutes squeezing between people and waiting in line to get a cold bagel, they ran out of cream cheese so I got to use peanut butter. The pool was terrible and cramped, we spent an hour there and decided not to ever go back. It is hard to be to mad b/c it was so cheap, i guess you get what you pay for.
Hmmm...you think of the ramada and you think of basic lodging. Well traveller beware! The Ramada boasts a shuttle to the beach; actually it is a city bus that contracts with all the hotels and restaurants in the area, so your one mile trip back from the beach is anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour!! The housekeeping comes in daily but really don't clean-the crumbs from the night before will still be there as well as the sand in the bathtub! People start drinking beer at the pool by 9:00am-not a place to bring your family. I wonder if they rent rooms on a monthly basis to the locals-there are quite a few sketchy people hanging out. If you are considering the ramada-don't.
Dont expect to get much sleep
the hotel was ok for what we needed- just a base camp- somewhere to sleep at night while we toured around the area. However when we booked our stay here no one gave us any indication of how close the ramada inn is to the train station. Not that I would have minded really as I live close to a railway line but the constant whistleblowing throughout the night would try the patience of a saint. Loved deerfield beach and want to return but would need to stay away from the train station.
Stayed for one night on Oct. 23. will not stay again. It is not what I expected for a Ramada Inn Resort. This used to be a Day's Inn and it's very tired. Staff was very friendly, but the rooms were below average and one might expect for under $30. Very lush tropical courtyard, breakfast "buffet" was continential in a converted room. First room had a running toilet and a flickering bathlight, were moved to another which the swipe key worked 10% of the time and the door would open with a shoulder block. Did see one of those ladies described in another review. Would not stay again even if it was free.
I was in The area on business and booked this hotel online. Upon arrivail I was "surprised" to find I had to make a u-turn just to get to it, traffic was very busy but after 15 or 20 minutes I made the turn. Staff was friendly when checking in and when the remote for the t.v. wouldnt work the "handyman" fixed it promptly. after that is when the real suprise happened, A group of 10 to 15 people gathered in front of the rooms and proceeded to have a bar-b-que, complete with beer and other intoxicants, they became quite bolsterous and rowdy and the party lasted until well after sundown (about 11:00) I think. The next day returning from my appointed business, I was pulling in and was behind a small beat up car with a less than desireable male driving and Attempting to convince a young lady to get in. He stopped his car and was getting out when I honked my horn, at that time he got back in and the lady walked away quickly, he followed. As I pulled into the parking spot by my room I heard someone yell "get away or I will call the cops" and the young landy came around a corner and headed to her room, as I looked back this same person was "jogging" after her I stepped out of my vehicle and turned to face him and he stopped looked at me and ran back to his car and drove away rapidly. so unless you are armed or wish to be involed in this type of activity I suggest you find a better hotel, this one in my opinion is not safe. not really clean either.
Best Weekend I ever had!
This hotel is one of the most relaxing property I ever stayed in! The courtyards are so well landscaped that I automaticly became so relaxed, and forgot all my problems.
Their Tropical gardens are "Out of this World".
My girlfriend is begging me to repeat this wonderful vacation we had.
They give you a free buffet breakfast, and also they have a 24 hours Dennys in the front of the hotel!
God bless them for the good time they gave us.

Oh, my god - do yourself a favour and stay away!
Its the worst I have ever seen! You get a first impressions by the surrondings but the room - you want to run as fast as you can. Dark, filthy, stains everywhere (some of them you could guess from what they are). We immediately checked out.
