Stayed here for a few hours prior to a cruise. Unfortunately we can’t recommend this hotel. According to the website and phone call the hotel offers a 24 hour airport shuttle. "Business and leisure guests can save time and money by taking advantage of our free, 24-hour shuttle to and from the airport." Our flight arrived late after 12:30 am...

Stayed here the night before a cruise. Arrived in town early, hotel stored our suit cases for us at no charge. There is Ft. Lauderdale van service in the lobby for convenience. The hotel is expanding to add more rooms and a pool.

A basic place for a day or two before your cruise. First, do NOT take room 205 (& Im guessing 305) since the "view" is of a wall less than 10ft away. Not only feels like you are in a cave, but smells of it, too. That being said, the very friendly staff, accommodated our request and we moved to...

The front desk staff was very helpful and welcoming. We waited about half an hour to take the free shuttle from the airport, but this hotel is close enough to both the airport and cruise port for a short taxi ride ($10-15 in 2017?). Per other hotels in the area, this was a reasonable value. The property is starting to...

We stayed overnight here while awaiting our cruise the following morning. Booked HI Express due to past great experience and preference. First, the shuttle from the airport needs work. Several of us asked why the A/C wasn't working. The driver asked if we did indeed want A/C, then proceeded to roll down the window. He thought it funny, but the...
