“What a pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 5 July 2010

We were delighted by the cleanliness of the rooms and common areas, and were made to feel very at home. The Inn was in an excellent location and had everything we needed. Recommendations for local restaurants were outstanding, as was the afternoon impromptu social hour presided over by Boston Johnny. If forced to state a negative,it would be to request bigger bath towels

I travel to Ft Lauderdale a few times a year to check up on my investment properties and I'm always looking for a cheap place to stay. I came across this by accident on AMEX and will always inquire about this first - it's cute, clean, little known, close to beach/restaurants/shops, etc. If you have a car, definitely stay here. If not, you can walk to a lot as well.

John and Aileen were gracious hosts - they host a Sat pm happy hr at the Tiki Bar so all the guests can mingle (sangria and chips). It was a pleasant way to end the day and ease into the night. Highly recommend this, especially if you can't get a good deal on A1A at a major hotel (forget about the little known motels and inns - stay here!).

hotel is good if you have a car. I haven't, and spent much time to found this hotel. Nobody knows it.
I'd like:
- small, but good equipment & clean room,
- friendly & helpfil owner,
- nice courtyard,
- 5-minites walk to some good restauirants and shopping mall with Starbucks, Jamba Juice etc.
- complimentary wi-fi in rooms.

I don't like:
- very noisy air-con,
- 15-minites walk to dirty beach (if you want to go to clean beaches or downtown or Central bus station, take bus # 11, only twice a hour, about 1 km from hotel)

John and Aileen were delightful hosts. The location was different than all my previous years of attending ARVO, meaning away from A1A and less noise.. My suite was heaven, comfortable, quietly elegant and beautifully appointed. There is a beautiful Weber Grill, that becomes a player for grilling fresh seafood and veggies. there is so much room, large bedroom, fantastic closet with shelves to the ceiling, and a kitchen that had everything all new or in superb condition. The living room elegant and large. Last year I stayed at the Pillars this was so much better unless I wanted to spend twice the amount for much less room. The beach is a pleasant short 10 minute walk. I enjoyed spending time and dinner at the grill with individuals who had been going there for years and could have easily been elsewhere - meaning money was not the issue. Frank & Johnie's is a delightful 3 minute walk away with superb Italian food and I swear Frank Sinatra was there. Wonderful hosts!

As a retired older couple, we appreciated the quiet and peaceful environment of this small, family owned and operated inn. Very useful advance information about amenities and location were provided. The accommodation was superb: bright and tastefully furnished, spacious and comfortable. Patio and pool area were clean and well maintained, and beautifully landscaped.
Public transport was available nearby as well as easy access to shopping, restaurants and beach.
Suite cleaning and maintenance were impeccable. The owner-operators were very friendly and helpful in every way. Any minor defincies were promptly attended to in a gracious manner. We have no complaints whatever.

The entrance to our Inn is filled with colorful bougainvilleas and hibiscus where a transformation takes place the moment you step into our tranquil and relaxing tropical oasis. You will be surrounded by palm trees, tropical flowers and foliage of many colors accented with tasteful landscaping. Truly a stylish, relaxing setting that takes you away from the daily grind. Our accommodations are decorated in a tropical motif taken from the surroundings of Fort Lauderdale and South Florida. Coming for Business?
