      Historical Traveler Reviews Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort Hotel & Suites Fort Lauderdale

      This place just got renovated, and the rooms looks spectacular! Nice Room/View

      from

      I'm a regular at the Fort Lauderdale Resort. They've renovated and now with the spectacular view, I have a beautiful room.

      A nice place but not the Ritz

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Very Accomidating

      from

      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 will not be going back...

      from

      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!

      Nice area but .......

      from

      A co-worker and I booked two rooms for 6 days through Expedia.ca.

      Booked and paid in advance.

      Nice location. Public access to the beach across the street. Easy to get to.

      However; one of our rooms leaked from the ceiling (toilet on the 3rd floor, we were on the 2nd). It dripped on one of the beds, and all over the floor - all they would do for us was to say that the other bed was dry. They wouldn't give us a break on the bill.

      The floors are flithy. I dropped a wet towel on the floor. When I picked it up; it was brown from the carpet. It was so dirty that I wore socks or shoes while walking around in the room.

      They may change the linens every day. But they sure don't pick up (or move) a wrapped bar of soap that was on the floor for three days. ie: the didn't clean the floor for at least three days.

      The elevator never worked (had to carry 3 heavy suitcases and 2 briefcases up and down the stairs). The office maybe staffed 24hrs - but my wife had an awful time trying to get the desk at night so they could forward her call to my room.

      It cost us about $160 CDN or about $125 US.per night. There are better paces to stay - keep looking.

      You get what you pay for

      from

      A 3 story motel located north on the border with Lauderdale by the Sea.

      Mostly residential section so you cannot see beach from motel due to high rise condo's lining the beach. Have to walk north two blocks and then go one block to get to public beach access, or just go a little north and then one block through a parking lot and climb up a big curb and bend under some bushes then down three narrow steps made of 2x4's .

      Pool is tiny, the picture must use a wide angle lens to look bigger than it really is. Not much eating within reasonable walking distance, really need a car. Beach is quiet - no places to rent anything. Hotel does not supply beach towels. Continental breakfast is juice, coffee, small donuts, english muffin and toaster waffles. No fruit, cereal or bagels. Service is poor. We stayed over New Years eve 2003. At 5 PM there was no hot water for shower we took cold showers. The next night the room was not made up. Someone came in and gave us fresh towels.

      Desk clerk said person making up room was new as Anna was out that day.

      Still charged me for full amount. For $59 night it is worth it. Any higher go nearby to Best Inn, they have a better breakfast.

      Days Suites Beachside is a good place to land

      from

      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.

      Lauderdale.

      Great service with aview

      from

      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.

      We checked on August 30, 2003 for an entire week. We booked a two bedroom unit on the 14 th floor. The view of the ocean and the surroundin landmarks were spectacular. As for the room who could complain. The two bedroom was divided into two apartments. Each apartment came equpied with a kitchen and any and every utensil you could think of. Both bedrooms came with bathrooms and t.v. The bedrooms also had a great view of the beach. On top of haveing two queen beds, the living room came with a full dinning room set a murphy bed, sofa bed, t.v, and a great balcony, which overlooked the beach, pool, and jacuzi. The resort offered its guest saunas, gym, free laundry and detergent and also $75 check (it is genuine) if you view a model for a time share. It took an hour of our time, but we came of with a check, which we cashed as soon as we got it and a buffet lunch. The resort was beyond wonderful, especially being a block away from the beach, 5 minutes from las olas blvd. Oh yeah and we got a great deal through our time share for $395 the entire week. Dont miss out.

      Don't Bother

      from

      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.

      ... We parked up at the rear of our block and dumped our luggage in our room 216, which was situated on the 2nd floor and right next to the walkway entrance over the courtyard to the main hotel building. Firstly, checking out the Pool area while it was still dry, we had been warned that the rain was on its way. Over by the pool area, looked over the marina side of the hotel. The sea could be seen the other side also, so we walked the long walkway which took you over ...

It goes without saying we were hungry, exhausted and ready for an early night. And so, for maybe the second time ever, we went to bed without checking out our new harbor.

      We slept like babies and awoke refreshed and eager to get a better look at our new surroundings. We were absolutely delighted with what we saw! In front of ...

There are road signs with speed limits, although no one seems to pay attention to these. Cars weave around each other at 80mph as if the person in front was going 25. Roland speaks only some English but we talked the best we could to each other. He stopped for us at a bridge over ...

      ... As lovely as it is, it’s pretty expensive. No spa for me on this run—no discounts for people on the legs of the World Voyage. While the prices of the various services are less expensive than the Queen Mary 2, it is expensive nonetheless. So, no bubble pool, no bucket of mud and a hose, no sauna for this girl. Oh well. However, I decide to do the 10-class package of yoga/Pilates. I’ll take a spin class occasionally as well. ...

      After the song and dance show, there was a comedy show in another theater at the other end of the ship. ...
