Dortje also took us to the Rostock University of Music and Drama where she works, it's a former Franciscan monastery from the 13 century that has been modernised for the university. We headed back to Dortje and Roberts when Lenny started to ...

... that he could tell the consumer exactly what a repair work will certainly cost them. Bring sales literature for items his firm sells so the consumer can view just what they may be acquiring. Know just what parts he has in stock to ensure that he will not attempt to market the customer something he doesn't have. Hold a great supply of conventional usual parts (springs, rollers, hingers, weatherstripping and motor operators), to make sure that he ...

... of water fell from the roof onto Isaac which was quite funny... We headed home around midnight (though some of the group stayed until 4am) as the bus left at 745 the next morning. We then had a series of one night stops where we only stayed in a spot for a few ours before bed and left early the next morning Cocoa beach - we had a delicious charcoal BBQ (which takes ages compared to gas) and came within 3 minutes of seeing a rocket launch ...

One More Cup of Coffee

... out on the floor with my coffee. I am getting pretty hungry but the over priced airport food is not appetizing. I’ll wait to reap the reward of my Chinese consumption. Frequent buyer airplane food. International trips don’t cost extra. Now that’s appetizing!

Embarkation Day

... unpacked and relaxed in the cabin.

Speaking of the cabin, we were a bit worried about its size, since we found the one on the Amsterdam a bit small for a four month trip, and by square feet this one is smaller. However, it is laid out better than the cabins on the Amsterdam, so there is really more usable space (the closet is bigger, and the room is shorter but wider, which means it is easier to get around the bed and coffee ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews A Little Inn By The Sea Lauderdale by the Sea

    Run-down

    from

    Enthusiastic reviews lured me to this totally so-so and overhyped motel. This is an "inn"? Give me a break. Our room was dirty and had a NOISY air-conditioner. Breakfast food was inedible. I didn't find it to be as awful as some other reviewers but it is definitely not the little paradise some people have found it to be.

    Needs a Lot-of-Maintainance-by-the-sea

    from

    My wife and I first encountered this hotel in 1995 - at that time it was very clean and well kept. We decided to return with another couple for 5 days in October 2003. When we arrived we could not believe how the place had deteriorated.

    Little Inn Is Dank and Dirty

    from

    I live in Fort Lauderdale and have friend coming from out of town. I thought it would be fun for us to stay at nice ocean front hotel instead of my house. I read Fodor's review of the "Little Inn". It sounded perfect-a home away from home-on the ocean. So, today I stopped by to look at a couple rooms. OMG!!! If the "Fab 5" had to fix this place and its rooms!! They would quit their jobs! The rooms smelled of mold. There were dusty plastic plants in the common areas. The AC was rusty. The walls were covered with the worst 70's tropical pattern.. It is truly Old Florida: tacky and dirty. After seeing 2 rooms I left feeling gross. I found a lovely room at the Villa Caprice for not much more $$. VERY clean with smart style.

    Mixed Review for Visit May 2003

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Little Inn in May 2003 for our 11th Anniversary.Hotel room was fair. We were on the 2nd floor and obviously placed in a room that was not part of the renovations that I'd read about somewhere else. Room had a musty smell, did not have enough lighting so it was dark, had washed out canopy over our bed, unpatched holes in the walls, petrified, dusty plants and dirty chairs on the balcony.Staff were very pleasant and helpful, though.Be prepared! Wackky (double) parking situation is unusual but it obviously works.Location was great! You could walk down to a lot of bars and restaurants near El Mar and Commercial Blvd.Nice patch of beach with free chairs. Really calm, clean water. Be warned: Depending on time of year when you go, and time of day you get out at the beach, it might be difficult to find an available beach chair."Upscale", continental breakfast was a disappointment. Seemed like a regular continental to me. Each day there was pastry, fruit, juice, tea & coffee.All in all, we found a lot to do outside our room so we only went to the room to sleep, shower or rest.Very pleased with the entertainment/recreation choices available in Lauderdale by the Sea

    Relaxing, Quiet, Great location, Quaint

    from

    Right on the beach with old Lauderdale charm in quaint Lauderdale by the Sea area. Pool surrounded by lounge chairs & palm trees. Felt like a family run place with large open area indoors where free continental breakfast buffet is served 8-10 a.m. Free lounge chairs on the beach to use (some hotels charge rental). Room had lovely seaside decor (no bland hotel rooms here) & felt homey. An inn preserved nicely from the days before high rises took over.

    We LOVE this place!

    from

    I am 16, and my family has been back here for what will be our 4th time (we're leaving in 11 days to spend winter vacation there!) There are so many places to go, but I am lazy and just sit on the beach 24/7. The hotel man (Victor) is SO nice and everyone there is very hospitible. Even though last year had bad weather I still had fun.
