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.
Cheap, safe place to stay when visiting Mom
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!
Not very impressed!!!!!
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.

So with that in mind we decided to head off in to Fort Lauderdale after breakfast. A quick nip out on to the prom deck to test the temperature and I decided it was freezing. 14 degrees to be precise so I put jeans and a jumper on.

Michael made great time to the airport. My bag was 48 pounds - whoo hoo! No clothing maneuvering chaos necessary. I mosey over to TSA holding my carry-on bag that feels like it weighs 48 pounds and wait and wonder about the way-too-happy guy ahead of me in line. I see he's a Christian and he's making everyone laugh (even TSA agents). But, I can't help thinking he's a little too happy - giving fodder to the atheists in the group, validating their ...
