Historical Traveler Reviews Premiere Hotel Fort Lauderdale
We had a wonderful time. We recommend to stay here. When we return we will most definately stay with them. Customer service has been lost in so many places..not here. Thank you guys for making our trip more memorible.
Anyon.e that complains about this hotel has a lobster appetite on a hamburger budget. Yes you need to bring your owns shampoo which is not uncommon for budget hotels. It was clean, a block from the beach and bus stops, a short walk to restaurants and bars. We had reserved a standard room. When we arrived the owner upgraded us to a studio with a full kitchen at no extra cost. He said it was because "I have one available and I can." We spent most of the day before we left at the beach and in the water. Our swim suits and towels were not drying out and we did not want to pack wet clothes. My wife asked the wife of the owner if she knew of a laundromat near by where she could dry some things. She smiled and took the items and put them in the hotels dryer and returned them folded to us in about 45 min. She refused to take any money for the extra service stating we were her guests. We did not use the pool as we were by the ocean but it looked clean. I would definitely go back. You just can't stay anywhere else near the beach for the price they charge at the Premiere
STAT HERE! 4-EVER!!!
My friends and I stayed at the Premier for spring break. It couldn't have been more perfect for us, and it was far better than what we expected considering it is only classified as a 2 star hotel. It is just steps away from a beautiful beach and if you don't mind walking it is still possible to get to the bars, resturants, shops, and a mall without taking a taxi. Lounging by the pool was amazing, in full sun, and very refreshing, there is also a grill available to have BBQ's by the pool or have cocktails by. The beach also only took about 30 seconds to walk to! Our efficiency was clean and exactly what we wanted. The kitchen really came in handy, there were even two full bathrooms! There were also hundreds of movies at our fingertips in the office, as well as a computer available to everyone who wanted it. I saved the best for last, the staff was awesome! The family that runs it is extremely friendly, helpful, and personably! Especially Bruno. Bruno is up all night, so if you have a problem or just want to drink a beer with someone he will be there for you. Also they are happy to call taxi's for you whenever you want and help you with problems in your room at any time of the day. Now that I have stayed at The Permier my life is complete period!
A dark whole
the plcae was a dump .. i booked it off the internet. the pictures i on the interenet, were probably taken when it first opened.
we never ended staying, i ended losing my deposit.
the room was old with chipping paint in the walls, the door hinges were not secured.
perfect for spring break. point final
Bring Your Own Shampoo!
The room that I stayed in was almost like a prison cell with practically no air conditioning. The staff, although cooperative, was not on call for 24 hours a day. The front desk was only open from about 10 AM to 10 PM every day.
This is a family owned business, and while they are friendly enough, it is quite obvious that they are waiting to be bought out by the enterpreneurs who are building those luxury condos on A1A and are investing absolutely no money to improve this property but instead are milking the lemon for all it is worth before they make a fortune selling this hotel to the condo builders. Their location is PRIME---right across the street from the beautiful Ft. Lauderdale beach. If you want to get to the restaurants, however, you'll have to either drive to them or take a Broward County bus.
If you have a choice, stay at the Howard Johnson's directly across the street or the Holiday Inn just a few blocks away for just about the same price. This place is really a dump. The only really nice thing I can say about it is that they have a nice, private swimming pool.
Remember---bring your own shampoo. They don't give you any!
Perfect for Spring Break!!
The place was Great! We went during spring break. Super close to the beach, clean, cheep and the owner was great and very accomidating. If I go back I will stay here again.
Location & service
I loved staying at Premiere with my family and we will come back next year. We already have a reservation for 2006. We had a suite and an efficiency, both extra clean and roomy. I saw the hotel-room and they are nothing special (tend to be small). Rates are really affordable and can't beat their LOCATION. By the way, the best is behind their front-desk. GREAT, GREAT OWNERS. Thanks for letting me post this!
This place is a dive. Website pictures are deceiving. Everything in the room we stayed in was sticky, Air conditioning didn't cool and above all the parking deck is under the hotel and floods VERY bad. We had to walk in water above our ankles in order to get to our car......pay a little more rather than staying here. We checked out early!!!!!!
Not so good
I picked this hotel from a website description and user reviews. I knew
it was inexpensive and in a fairly good location. I liked the promise
of bicycles and web access.
The room was very clean and had a refrigerator and a microwave. Very
sparse. I had to ask for soap (what??), and I sensed that to ask for a
water glass would be too much.
They have one computer for internet access, which when available, was appreciated. They had one working bicycle, which I used for a couple of hours, but I would not suggest trying out.
Good place to stay!
The Premiere is a clean, friendly, convenient, family motel with amenities you wouldnt expect. Free Movies in every room, large screen modern remote controlled TVs, clean kitchens and bathrooms and plenty of towels and comfortable beds and linens. Nice, clean ceramic tile floors. The family that runs it is very friendly and helpful. There is covered off-street parking and a nice pool steps from the beach. I will definitely return to the Premiere!
