      Palm plaza

      from

      What a dump. We were very disapointed. I understand that it was sold, and that this is the last season. It needs to be bulldozed. Rooms dirty. Shabby at best. Asked for late check out. Hurried out of the room before requested check out time @12:30.

      Nice and cozy

      from

      A very nice deal without major pretensions. Nice accomodations and staff. Walking distance to the beach and short drive to Las Olas Boulevard. We were traveling for many days in different cities in Florida, so we needed a comfortable, but not too expensive, hotel. This was indeed the place.

      Oustanding service

      from

      The service and staff of this guesthouse in Ft. Lauderdale were above and beyond. From the moment we walked in we were immediately welcomed and made to feel like family. This is wonderful and inexpensive place to get away from everything, and without the attitude!

      Loved the Resort!

      from

      My partner and I have stayed at the Palm Plaza Resort in Ft. Lauderdale four different times during the past two years! It's a great place with a very friendly staff who are ALWAYS willing to accommodate!

      We also believe that the price is right. Comparing this venue to others in Ft. Lauderdale, the Palm Plaza is moderately priced. This is good, as we usually spend 5-12 nights per visit.

      The rooms are very well kept (the suites are great!), and the resort also has a very private, clothing optional pool area. Great place to just hang out during the day!

      Kudos to the management and staff! Keep up the great work. We'll see you very soon.

      Great Place to stay!

      from

      A most pleasant ten day stay for my partner and I. The first impression entering the courtyard is a lush garden surrounding the pool. We were greeted by friendly staff who were eager to assist and help us explore the area. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Parking was ample and easy. Continental breakfasts were in rooms the night before - being there for a late night snack if so desired.

      Guests were outgoing and from all age groups and multiple countries. The beach is in easy walking distance. Even being so near the beach, we preferred to enjoy the pool, garden, and company of other guests.

      We plan to stay there on next trip, and will encourage friends to join us.

      Great Place

      from

      My visit to the Palm Plaza Resort in Fort Lauderdale exceeded my expectations. The accomodations were more than comfortable and the continental breakfast was not only tasty but more than enough to start the day. The grounds were lavish and well groomed. You felt like you were in a tropical paradise. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They made me feel right at home.

      I highly recommend the Palm Plaza Resort.

      Needs Improvement

      from

      My partner and I stayed at the Palm Plaza last winter and found it to be ok, at best. Although the staff was helpful, they weren't particularly friendly. I agree with the reviewer above who stated that the rooms were clean, but tired. We also had problems with the plumbing and noticed a bug issue. The guests were nice and tend to be in there late 30's to 40's (with some in there 50-60's).

      Relaxing and Peaceful

      from

      Very nice place, peaceful and relaxing; beautiful garden with lush palm trees and clean pool. Hotel is only three blocks away from the ocean and right on the Intracostal way. Rooms are nice and clean; staff is friendly and helpful. Will definitely return.

      Right on the Money

      from

      Stayed at the Palm Plaza end of May 2003 and loved it. It's a renovated motel near the end of a quiet street, only a five-minute walk to the beach. Stores, gyms, bars, are only 5-10 minutes' drive away. The property had been recently painted and landscaped, and the pool was sparkling throughout my stay. I took a tour of the property, and the suites are MUCH nicer than the rooms. My partner and I found this an exceptional value for the money. And yes, the pool furniture does need to be updated, but I'm in Lauderdale for the ocean, not chlorine. I will be returning in 2004.

      Adequate but not one to repeat.

      from

      First, a clarification- the Palm Plaza Resort is NOT a block from the beach, more like three or four. Not bad, but the water you see from the balcony is the intracoastal-- seen across another property. Property was ok, not exceptional by any stretch. Rooms were tired but fairly clean. Some cockroaches, plumbing fixtures were inexcusably falling apart in the (obviously original) shower. Breakfast was not served poolside, as described, but left in your room the day before so you could take it poolside if you desired. Heated pool was only minimally heated-- we had to have it turned up in order to swim after dark. There is NO hot tub (I saw varied reports that mentioned one.)Public areas were tidy, but the spotty lawn and leaky sprinkler system made sunning a bit muddy, and the pool chairs were all broken. There is no internet access on site, except phone jacks on the room phones. Wireless access is being established for those who travel with laptop. We recommended a terminal for guest access. Overall, cheap and ok, but I won't stay here again with so many other Ft Lauderdale options.

      ... 30 ! In the end we had walked around the whole block and made it back to the first place bang on 11am. It was called '2 George's', a concho bar. It was a lovely place with a great view. We sat down overlooking the river, with a fan blowing down on us to cool our sweaty bodies, We chose the 1/2 waterfront sandwich with a cup of spicy chicken soup. This consisted of half a triple decker sandwich packed full of turkey, bacon, cheese & salad, the soup was homemade and packed ...

This was however quickly put into check when the cleaning ***** was asking if I was buying anything, and when I said I already had she just looked at me like a piece of dirt , glancing over at me for the next 5 minutes before eventually coming back and saying I had to leave.

      ... yeah! At 3:15 we got to do our muster drill. It was like handing a retirement home life jackets. Some of these people will be dead before they ever figure out the straps. Anyway, found a great spot at the back of the ship for Sailaway. Couldn't ask for a more perfect day to leave. Not a cloud in the sky, and surrounded by yachts. Life is good. As we watched the Florida coast fade into the distance, we met a ...

As we were coming up the street towards our hotel, we soon became aware that we were going to head right past it and onto the bridge over to Fort Lauderdale Beach area. We quickly drew this to his attention and he argued with us, saying that we had told him we wanted to go to the Hyatt (wrong...clearly his mind was not on the job). It was too late, by now we were heading over the bridge. I mentioned to him that shouldn't he shut ...
