Ocean Manor Beach Resort Hotel
Ranked #21 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 12 February 2012

When the valet pulled up to bring our car around in the morning of our departure, it was smashed. It had been moved from the original parking spot, which means the valet obviously took it out for a joyride and smashed it up- it is a really expensive sports car. No management could be "found" and there was no one who would speak to us. The valet and hotel both refused all responsibility and when I requested video they refused. This is a subpar hotel and extremely unprofessional. My night in this disgusting hotel cost me over $4000.00 BEWARE! Not to mention the rooms are very old and the rooms and hallways smell like old mildew.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else!!!

Upon arriving at 11:00 a.m. to get a room, was advised that check in time wasn't until 3:00. They offered to take our luggage behind the desk, and we told them we would go eat lunch and buy a couple of souvenirs, and come back. Arriving back at 1;30 p.m. was told our room still wasn't ready, I asked if they were working on it yet, and the staff told me they wouldn't be ready until 3:00, and I said, I know, but you know we are here, can they get to working on it now, and the gal said, they won';t be ready until 3:00, so, took up a seat in the lobby and finally at 2:55, the lady said our room was ready. After waking up at 2:00 a.m. as the bed was bothering my wife's back, so nobody was sleeping at this point, I got up to go to the bathroom, and noticed 3 cockroaches scurrying around on the walls and floor. At this point it was lights on in the bedroom, a quick bedbug check, and moved all the clothing, and toiletries out of the bathroom, and stacked stuff on top of luggage. The pergo flooring is uneven and coming apart, the door is coming off the hinges, and has to be lifted to shut, and the room vent is very dirty, so you get a general idea of the room. Anywhere I pay a hundred bucks a room usually gets a clean and decent nights stay with pretty good service, however, not at this place. Next trip to a new area, I suggest check the reviews before booking a place in a new area. Don't stay here.

Room Tip: This was a fourth floor room, that appeared flooded at one time or another, but maybe it was the hum...

Of al the hotels I have stayed at over the last 30 years, I can honestly say that the Ocean Manor is amongst the bottom five (this from a guy who once stayed in a room in Louisville that had been a homicide scenel). After being greeted by the unfriendly front desk personnel, we proceeded to our room on the third floor. There, we observed that the door had been poorly repaired (apparently several times given the notches, scars, etc. thereon). Obviously, it did not close properly. The floating floor featured relpaced portions that did not match the original color or pattern. The TV did not shut off forcing us to pull the plug after viewing. The shower head would not stay in place and sprayed only on to the taps that were loose. Hot water? Depends on one's deinition of hot. The linen was gray and featured hairs from former guests. The finish from the tub was half gone. Need to be somewhere? Bring an alarm as, at least the room we were assigned, did not feature a clock - much less a clockradio. This hotel is a terrible building in an otherwise excellent neighborhood. The view and beach are not worth the trouble. Stay away!

I cannot express fully the disappointment in the room we had on our recent visit to this hotel even after we received an upgrade. The bathroom had something black (Mold?) around the tub. Did not shower until we left the 'resort'. The sink had been painted and the former color, pink, was wearing through. The bed swagged in the middle ( not at all comfortable). Wore socks or shoes the whole time; not sure when it was last cleaned properly; there was paper on the floor for former guest(s). Afraid to look under the bed for fear of what we might find. The "heated" pool was anything but heated; maybe the sun heated the pool!?? All in all, you get what you pay for. We only stayed one night and got out of there. The elevators did not always work. Sorry we did not take photos.

Room Tip: Find another hotel

We have read all the poor reviews about the Ocean Manor and totally disagree.
If you want the Four Seasons, don’t go to the Ocean Manor. However, if you want a great hotel right on the beach with a Tiki Bar/Restaurant that offers excellent food and drinks at a very reasonable price, the Ocean Manor is the place for you!
The hotel is an older property. The Lobby is renovated and beautiful with an excellent higher end restaurant and club and a 24 hour coffee & espresso shop with to-go sandwiches and pastries. The Tiki Bar/Restaurant is right on the beach. The menu selection and quality of the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Go there and ask for Greg, Dan, Tony or Anna (actually anyone) and you will be treated like family.
Although we have stayed at Ocean Manor twice, we have not experienced any issues with the rooms. The hotel renovates 2 to 3 rooms a month, and I am sure that some of the old rooms may have issues. They all have at a minimum a small refrigerator and microwave, but many efficiency units and full kitchens are available. All that is needed is to talk to Mike or Brian, Maurice, or Vivian at the front desk and they will take care of you.
The staff at Ocean Manor wants you to relax and enjoy your stay and will go out of their way to accommodate any reasonable request. From Vinnie the maintenance man to Frank the owner, everyone is willing to assist in satisfying their guest’s expectations.
Ocean Manor is located right on the beach and walking distance to the supermarket and other stores.
We are planning our next Ft Lauderdale get-a way and will definitely be booking at the Ocean Manor.

Room Tip: Talk to the front desk about your room. They want to make your trip enjoyable and will do whatever...
