I visited the Great Escape Inn in Lauderdale by the Sea and was thrilled. What a wonderful gem of a place. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The rooms are immaculate and beautifully decorated. The pool was lovely and came complete with sunscreen. I would definitely visit again! Highly recommend it!

I had just lovely stay at this establishment. The rooms were immaculate and even smelled like your housekeeper just left kinda clean. The pool and courtyard were very nice. The beach was within walking distance and they even provide chairs and umbrellas. I will be back again!

Very nice location and rooms. Clean and big rooms, they are very helpful. I highly recommend this hotel. We were very satisfied with our stay. The location is away from the crowded Fort Lauderdale area, but Lauderdale by the Sea is a growing area.

stayed here on April for 10 nights in one bed apartment. Good location - a block from the beach and short walk to bars and restaurants in resort centre and Publix supermarket. Apartment clean and functional with comfy bed and plenty of storage space. All staff were very friendly and helpful, even providing beach chairs and umbrellas free of charge....
