As soon as I pulled off of A1A into their cozy parking lot; I felt like I was back in the 60's waiting for Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon to walk up from having a beach party . . .
Clean as a whistle and cozy . . . just the place to unwind.
The iconic palm trees and the beautifully brightly painted and maintained stucco Motel was a throw back to idyllic times in Fort Lauderdale . . . everywhere I looked, it reminded me that I was "on vacation" . . . wonderful places to sit and visit under the umbrella/awnings of the patios and the balmy breezes as I looked eastward to the beach and saw the famous "Galt Ocean" mile . . . ahh, good to be in South Florida again.
I was greeted by "Bob" at the front desk, who remembered me from past visits and was given a wonderful corner upstairs efficiency apartment type room, complete with kitchenette and an immaculately and nicely furnished room.
I love the "old" Fort Lauderdale . . . reminiscent of good times . . .
That evening, I took a few block stroll south to 33rd street where lots of good smells and sounds abound from several outdoor cafe's . . . I loved the experience . . . and think you will too :-)
