Historical Traveler Reviews Sea Club Resort Fort Lauderdale
Do not stay here.
I have never felt so compelled to write a review. I have just returned from a stay at this hotel and must warn other travelers to stay away.
There were bugs in the bathroom, stains on the bedspread, the walls were thin, there was an unfresh smell and the staff is not helpful.
Do not be fooled by the pictures online or the Ramada name. This hotel will leave you restless and feeling filthy.
The kicker is a $2 surcharge per day for the room safe. There was nothing on the website about this charge and it applies even if you do not use the safe, which just sits on the floor rather than actually being installed.
Best Buy for my Money!
I got the best deal at the Sea Club Resort! It has the best location!
right on the Beach, within walking distance to all the important locations,bars,and night clubs. The staff is very friendly! Special two guys: Javier and Michael. This hotel gives you a grate feiling of Home away from Home. I stayed in other hotels in Fort Lauderdale previously, and now I made up my mind! I will always stay at the Sea Club ! It is the best!! Thank You Guys.
We have a wonderful 7 night stay at Ft. Lauderdale, Sea Club Resort. The staff was very helpful and pleasant, the room was clean and well maintain, the weather fantastic, in all perfect.
Stay away from that hotel!! Old and noisy
We had booked a trip to Florida. The hotel we 1st booked in Miami was full because of a boat event, so we had to stay in Fort Lauderdale (the tour operator had no "other" Hotels in Miami yeah sure) at the sea club. We also payed 22 euro xtra for the night, so you expect something wonderfull, NOT!!!!!!!!!! Well it was very bad, in the years i've seen a lot of bad hotels but this one should not be open anymore. Its dirty, old, very noisy, windy etc. I have no positive reaction about that hotel, the only thing positive about the hotel was the day that we've checked out.
Not the Worst but Close
I concur with the previous reviewers, this place is pretty bad.
However, I've stayed at worse but usually have only paid in the $30-40 range. This place is 2-3 times as expensive. No longer a Ramada. They claimed owner didn't want to pay franchise fees -- I suspect Ramada pulled the plug. Room was clean but extremely well worn and door wouldn't close properly. Parking lot was small and if full you're on your own. Location was excellent. Hotel restaurant advertised a breakfast buffet but wasn't even open for breakfast.
Do not stay here!
DO NOT STAY HERE.The Bates motel would be better.We arrived at the airport at 10:00 p.m. expecting the shuttle. I called the hotel 3 times; no answer. The shuttle showed up about 1-1/2 hours later; driver was surly. My father checked in only to learn someone else was already assigned to his room. Back to the lobby. No manager on duty. Only 2 flakes passing as hotel employees. Got my father another room. Now my turn. Got my room, in the pouring rain, I went to the room; it was assigned to another guest. Returned to the lobby. Now 2:30 in the morning. Got a room. Went to room. Key did not work. Went back to lobby with flakes working. Got new key; went to said "room" tried to make a call. Phone was torn out of wall, 6" diameter hole in wall. Sheets appeared dirty. Next morning, other guests remarked their room smelled of cat piss and hairs in their sheets. :-( Tried to catch shuttle to seaport. 3 hour wait. No line, mad stampeed to shuttle. DO NOT STAY HERE. My husband says I have underplayed this review.
Room was broken into, management treated us horribly
Don't be fooled by the cool looking pictures of the hotel, or the Ramada name. This hotel was horrible.We stayed there during the month of February, lured in by good prices. Our first full day there, we returned to our room and found that someone had broken into our room and stolen money, cameras, clothes, etc. Additionally, our heating vent was taped over with duct tape. We called the police, and while waiting, received a phone call from the front desk, who were irate we did not call them first. The maintenence worker's story was that someone had called during the day to complain about their air conditioning being too cold, so they came to tape over the vent. However, they confused the rooms, and taped over our vent instead. They insisted that we did not shut our door properly when we left, and they were not responsible for anything that happened. It all sounded very fishy to us, and we suspected an inside job. We had to insist with the management that they switch rooms, but never felt secure for the remainder of the stay. To add insult to injury, on our last day in town, we had a late afternoon flight, so we asked to check our bags at the front desk. The manager told us to put our bags under a table in the lobby (next to the front door) and he would "keep an eye on them for us." We wound up walking to the Sheraton down the street, checking our bags with the concierge, and tried to enjoy the last few hours of our trip.Don't make the same mistake we did- avoid this hotel.
You are better off sleeping in your car.
We travel up and down the east coact with our soccer team and have stayed in Ramada Inns because of their reputation. This Ramada Inn was dirty, the manager was rude, the rooms and bathrooms were so bad you would be better off sleeping in your car and taking a shower at the beach.
Stay away, save your money.
Sorry to say this is the WORST hotel I have ever stay in.........serious. Its a shame....great location on the beach, the staff tried their best, but it needs Bulldozing. IT smells, no, it stinks. All the bathroom fittings were either broken or rusty. There is or was in Dec 03 a building site next door.So the work and of course noise started at 7pm. We only stayed 2nights and never complained. The room was clean, the beds were clean, and it was only 2nights to put down to experience.If you are from the UK and read this stay away. If you are from the US, you should know better!!
Save your money!
I booked this room over the internet where they displayed a very nice picture. The picture must have been of the only nice part of the place! The staff was rude by telling my husband "we have no rooms" as soon as he walked in the door, without asking if we had reservations. Our room was dirty, and whenever our neighbors would flush their toilet, our sink would fill with water. We called maitnenace about the problem, and he came to check it, and told us he would be right back. We later found out he just went home. We asked for another room, and they wouldn't move us. They told us that it was an old hotel, and things like this happen. It was by far the worst place we have ever stayed at! You would be better off at Motel 6.

... a big smile of recognition the first two days and brooding deeply at the Museum last night. Landing in Fort Lauderdale was a shock to the system, tropical and warm and hazy, a place that seemed entirely ignorant of the ways and means of winter. I had to pass between terminals to go to the money exchange and everything I saw outside made me want to laugh out loud in delight. The tiny powder-puff clouds blowing sweetly in the sky, empty of precipitation. The Palm trees. The man who looked ...
... t, so we had to go back to the gate to get maintenance to look at it. After another 10 minutes of idling our captain advised us that they were having trouble finding a gate for us to go back to. Oh, and did I mention the air conditioning wasn't working either? Talk about peanuts and monkeys..
About 3.30 we were still on the ground and the stewardess announced that they were going to hand out free water and cookies to compensate for the delay and the discomfort. ...
... With a few more hours left to kill, we made it back to the beach, but this time to lay in the shade. Watching the world go by was extremely fun on this beach, my favourite game was to try and spot a person who hadn't had cosmetic surgery there, Im sure there was one!! Anyway our final bus ride took us back to the airport ready for our 6 hour flight to LA where our trip would properly begin in ...
... side of the street, was jam packed with restaurants and bars bursting with people and music with alcohol served in giant glasses and expensive cars and motorbikes cruising up and down the road in order to see and to be seen. 6 days in hot Miami and it is time for even hotter Jamaica. p.s mummy I am OK p.s.2.Random observations about the USA 1. Food portions are huge. Thus it is perfectly acceptable to ask for a 'doggy bag´' to take home the ...
... we were on the limit.
Our stay was at another time share resort, this time at Weston an outer suburb of Fort Lauderdale. A very posh suburb - they call themselves a city. This is where some of the rich and famous live and the streets are pampered. The resort that they put us in was an older version and not of the ...
