Historical Traveler Reviews Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort Hotel & Suites Fort Lauderdale
This place just got renovated, and the rooms looks spectacular! Nice Room/View
I'm a regular at the Fort Lauderdale Resort. They've renovated and now with the spectacular view, I have a beautiful room.
My husband and I checked into the hotel on Saturday afternoon and we were given a room with the intracoastal view. When I asked if they had anything available with an ocean view they were very quick to oblige and changed our room! The room itself was HUGE and very nice! I was a bit nervous because of the other reviews on this site but when we got there, like I said, I was pleased. Now, don't expect the Ritz Carlton or anything like that but the room was clean, large and visually appealing. The service in the hotel was excellent and whenever we called with questions the front desk was very helpful. The only complaint is the elevators. We were informed before our vacation that one of the elevators was going to be out of service but that there would be 2 others available. On our first evening there, ALL 3 elevators were out of order and we had to walk up 14 (yes FOURTEEN) flights of stairs to get to our room. I was thankful for the workout but once was enough. THankfully, the other 2 elevators were fixed shortly thereafter. And although for the rest of the week there weren't anymore elevator outages there were times in which we waited about 5 minutes for an elevator. Overall, our vacation was great and I'd definitely stay there again!!
Not up to timeshare standards
We came to Fort Lauderdale Beach resort for the second week of a two-week holiday exchange with RCI. It was a big disappointment. The room was spacious enough and the furnishings were OK but the building was dreadful. It was definitely not timeshare standard. The pooldeck, sunbeds and sauna area were in very poor condition and in shade from lunchtime onwards. All the public areas were extremely shabby.especially the function room.
This building is forty years old and in serious need of renervation.
My husband and I just returned from a "couples" trip without the kids from April 13-16th. We were originally scheduled to stay at the Best Inn down the street , but when we arrived for check in the pool was being re -done. The hotel staff at the Best Inn said they had a sister hotel (the Days Inn) a few blocks away. The Days Inn was very accomodating and set us up with a room that was equivalent to the room we had at the Best Inn. The front desk staff (Adriana) was very sweet. Upon entry of the room - it smelled musty, but nothing a few dryer sheets couldn't fix. The housekeeping staff was wonderful. Our room was clean when we reentered. It was a little out dated but nice for the money. We had a fridge and micro and irons could be borrowed for the stay. The location is great! Access to the beach is about one block away, however, there are no chairs or umbrella's to rent in the immediate area. Although the hotel is located on A1A, it is not noisy. Overall, the trip was wonderful - They were very nice and friendly and willing to help!
We visited Days Suites Beachside in mid October 2003. We stayed for 5 nights. When we checked in , we thought it seemed clean and comfortable. Then problem #1, the fridge didn't work. It took a lot of effort to get the staff to replace it, but they did. When we returned in the evening from a full day, I noticed a dead cockroach on the carpet, turns out it wasn't dead. We soon found two more in the bathroom. Trying to remain calm - with two small children who did not want bugs in our room, we then see two more crawling out from behind the headboards with all of the lights on. We tried calling the desk and got no help. We found more roaches through the night and slept (barely) with the lights on. We were moved to a new room, which was cleaner and bug free. They gave us a 10% discount for our first night - not enough in my book. The rest of the stay was bug free and they did have an exterminator come the following day to spray all of the rooms. But, beware - our room with the roaches was directly above the room where breakfast is served!
A co-worker and I booked two rooms for 6 days through Expedia.ca.

Days Suites Beachside is a good place to land
We went to Ft. Lauderdale the weekend of October 17, 2003. We stayed at the Days Suites Beachside and we were a little anxious about staying there because we hadn't heard a whole lot about it. It was a really good place to stay because the price was reasonable, it was very clean, they offered a complimentary continental breakfast, a clean pool, and they were very friendly and helpful. It was obviously not the plush Hyatt Hilton by any means but for what we needed, which was a place to land, was good. The location was good as far as being able to walk about two blocks to the beach and the beach itself was not real crowded but we weren't near hardly any food places except the Best Inn Tiki Bar which had fabulous food. All in all, a good place to land in Ft.
My husband and I decided to take a last minute vacation to florida. It was our first time useing the resort and it was not reccomended to us.
This was supposed to be our honeymoon accomadations in April 2003 through an exchange from Interval International.
The lobby ceiling was low and smelly like the room. The carpet was old.
The doors to the room should have warned us not to enter and I definitely wouldn't have slept or bathed there.
We had already prepaid for this facility through Interval Exchange - but we still left. It was that bad. Our honeymoon would have been ruined if we stayed.
