... the elderly Selma and Irv, for our first shipboard meal.

Catherine, God love her, noticed a couple behind me seated at a table for ten surrounded by eight empty chairs. Within a few minutes she first experienced failure in having us moved to their table and next experienced victory at arranging that for future nights. That was, on her part, a classy move that, as an often-solo traveler, I appreciated more than she or you can know.

All at Sea

... as much off the menu as you like so it really is a great way to do a spot of fine dining without the exorbitant prices you'd normally pay. After a lovely dinner we headed off... Not too sure exactly what we did and everywhere we went but we ended up in Dazzles nightclub where I danced the night away with Heather and Tim and several other people. I know I danced with Richard, the cruise director and Patrick the assistant cruise director... It was rather a late night, ...

Living the Slow Life

... excellent but very rich. We certainly don't eat like that any more but the lobster and the Grand Marnier soufflé were both excellent. It did make spin class harder this morning as well as the shifting time clock. Every 2 days we move our clocks forward by 1 hour. We will shift by 6 hours between Miami and Rome. It avoids the big jet lag but we do notice the loss of the hour ...

... the whole of camp. We then made our way to Olympic hall deck, where each bus would be called forward one at a time. I hadn't cried yet so thought I would be fine. How wrong I was. A lot of the older girls had started crying which got me a bit emotional, and then one of our girls started crying which just set me off. It started with a few tears to begin with, but when the first bus got called and little samara was on it I cried. I gave them each ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sea Lord Hotel & Suites Lauderdale by the Sea

    Forget the Sea Lord


    Forget the Sea Lord. Though the view from our "deluxe" suite (about $200 per night) was beautiful, the management has lost its way on customer service. I'm not fussy, but first they only gave us 2 towels for 4 of us. That's fine, but when I requested 2 more I was questioned on why 2 wasn't enough. I said half a towel per person wouldn't do. Then at one point during our 3-night stay an employee actually entered the room without knocking. He was clearly there to see if we had the window open. My husband asked him to leave as people were showering, for Pete's sake. The man tried to push his way in and my husband finally had to tell him very forcefully to get out. And yes, he was definitely an employee.

    Relaxing Getaway June 2004


    My boyfriend and I spent 5 nights at the Sea Lord and I must say I was pleasently surprised. First when I called to make reservations they were so incredibly polite and helpful. They took the time to answer my questions and offered to send me pictures and floorplans through email. When we got there we had a wonderful jr. suite directly facing the ocean. The room was beautiful and clean, as was the entire hotel. Being able to sit on our private balcony and watch the sunrise was one of the best parts. You walk directly out of the hotel onto the beach where they offer free use of their beach chairs, just ask and they are more than happy to get them for you. The beach and ocean are clean and wonderful. We went snorkeling and their were always scuba divers around. We had a wonderful time and look forward to going back! The staff helped us find things and the visitors center is a block away and has great information also. If you are looking for a home away from home to relax from the hussle and bussle of the city this is the place to go. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or don't believe me. We took picture of the room, beach, and pool. I would be more than happy to send them your way. Sea Lord is a wonderful place to stay. I highly recommend it.

    Great place


    The Sea Lord is a great place. Clean and friendly staff. We have stayed here the past few years. Right on the beach and within walking distance of resturants and shops. They have breakfast in the morning near the pool. Nothing fancy, but a added plus, fruits and muffins, coffee,tea and OJ. A staff worker Benny is great !!! Works from early day to night to make sure the stay for everyone goes well. He is a big asset to the hotel. If there is a problem, Benny is right there to solve it !!!! Employee of the year !!!



    My boyfriend and I stayed at the Sea Lord Hotel in March 2004. After reviewing hotels online we decided that this sounded like the best place to stay at a reasonable price that we could afford. Upon arrival we got our room keys and went to the room number that was on our key holder (the small envelop our key was held in) only to find someone else there! Not our room! It was a used card holder that someone had written on. The rooms had no carpet only tile floors, the bed squeeked unbelievable bad. When you moved at night the bed squeeked. The walls were paper thin you could hear everything in the rooms beside you and above you. It was the worse four nights of sleep. When I went to take a shower I shut the shower curtain to find it was dirty, then I saw it was moldy! We asked to have it replaced and when it wasn't we asked why. They explained the maid tried to replace it that day but the room was locked. Hmmm....we weren't even there that day, the room couldn't have been locked. So we do not get room service that day either. Nor did we get room service the next day. There is a sign you must place on your door knob requesting service or privacy. We did not have one of these in our room. Local calls cost you a dollar per call, they charge a dollar a day for the safe in your room whether you used it or not. If you use the dishes in your room and leave them diry that's 25 dollars.

    We Love this place!


    We have stayed here for the last few years. Usually in the same room. No one standing waiting for tips, not fancy but updated rooms, very nice, clean, great location, great staff and man, what a view. Trust me, spend the extra $$ and get an oceanfront room. WELL worth it. Watch the cruise ships come and go, the beach is clean and quiet. One year while enjoying the waves, we even had manatees at our feet. We tried a few other hotels but we'll be back here from now on! Even our friends have stayed here and returned.

    A Great Place To Visit, And I Could DEFINITELY Live There!!!


    My SEA LORD tradition began when I was 6 years old. My single-parent mother and I stumbled on the only hotel in town with a vacancy on our first vacation in late July of 86. We were so fortunate that night to have found the most accomodating suite that fit our needs so perfectly!!! The Sea Lord became an annual event that we anxiously looked forward to. A beautiful room with a balcony view, an ocean front pool and a tranquil atmosphere all added up to host and amazing list of fond memories. Of course, we were not the only members of our family to enjoy the Sea Lord's offerings. On occasion, we would catch the last two or three days of my grandparents vacation or tavel with my aunt and four young cousins, revealing to them all our hidden escape. While I still remember the day after hurricane Andrew and how terrifying it was to be evacuated from Lauderdale By The Sea the day before, I still treasure the enormous conch shells we managed to dig out of the eroded beachwhen we returned to the Sea Lord the next afternoon.

    The Sea Lord is Family Tradition for us!


    My husband's family has been going to this hotel in the beginning of every August for over 10 years, and the list of family members joining the tradition just keeps growing! The Sea Lord, though recently sold to new management, still maintains its quiet, secluded atmosphere amidst main attractions (sitting between the pier and downtown lauderdale).

    The set up is refreshing, the staff is friendly and the people who stay here are always happy. Not big and extravagant, but equally not tiny and cheap. Just right for our family!

    Nice staying there but expensive


    We stayed 3 nights at Sea Lord on July 2003. The rooms were very nice, and the service good, but too much restrictions and regulations makes you feel uncomfortable. We had to sign a form that basically gives them rights to throw you out with no money back if they think you are making too much noise in your room, loud music,etc. etc. etc. If you'll have any guest, they cannot use hotel facilities, not even the pool or beach chairs.... AND, the first day, after checking in, me and my husband were in the room, my husband went to the balcony to check the view, and left the glass doors opened for 1 minute (no kidding), and somehow the front desk found out, called us, and told us to please close it cause it affected the air conditioning system of the whole building. Other than that, everything was perfect. Great equipped rooms, very nice ocean view, very good air conditioning (adaptable), great room service, friendly staff, and very quiet place. Thanks a lot

    Sea Lord Hotel


    We stayed at the Sea Lord for a week in May 2003. It was much better than I anticipated. Beautiful spot, friendly staff, great maid service. The room was beautiful with a full glass view of the ocean. The only downfall of that is that the glass is not insulated very well and during the day when you aren't in the room you need to close the drapes or your room will be an oven when you get back. Air Conditioning system seems to need upgrading. We were in room 202. All was fine, except the floors were dirty. We kept our sandals on while in the room. We will definately be going back for another vacation there. Very close to everything, yet quiet and private at the same time. We really had the most relaxing vacation ever.

    Great place to relax


    My family has stayed at the Sea Lord several times over the years. In fact, most of the people you talk to their have been coming here for years. Although recently sold, it still has a 'homey' atmosphere.
