Ocean Manor Beach Resort Hotel
Ranked #21 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 2 May 2012

My wife and I just returned from our third trip to Ocean Manor and can't wait to go again.
This hotel is not the Ritz – if that is what you are looking for – do not stay here.
The Ocean Manor is an old hotel. Many of the rooms are renovated, but some are not. When we checked in, the hotel was sold out and we were in an older oceanfront room. The next morning, we asked to move rooms and were put in a beautifully appointed oceanfront room, completely renovated with flat-screen TV and microwave and refrigerator.
The Ocean Manor is the best deal on the Beach, walking distance to grocery/liquor store and shopping. The Hotel has an upscale restaurant and an excellent Bamboo Tiki Bar and Grill.
We ate at the Bamboo most days as the food is great, the prices are reasonable, and the view is the spectacular.
The staff at Ocean Manor is very accommodating. Don’t let the bad reviews fool you – if you are unhappy about something, talk to the front desk staff – they will go out of their way to make you a satisfied customer.
We are already making plans for another trip in late summer.

Room Tip: Ask the front desk to see the room, if you are unhappy with it, ask to see another one.

None of the rooms we saw looked like the ones on the website! The rooms were dirty, ugly, old & musty! The carpeting was ancient & filthy. Never once saw wood flooring! The bathrooms was so small I could barely turn around in the shower, SERIOUSLY! and the grout was mildewy and towel rods were broken. cheap towels too. the remotes didn't work for the tv, neither did the blow dryer. we had to buy pillows because the ones they gave us were lumpy as was the bed! VERY uncomfortable. The drapes didn't open or close, and they were barely hanging at the top with a few hooks. we shared our balcony with the room next door, no divider! AND we had to pay extra to park our car in the parking lot! This place was horrible! DON'T stay here!

Room Tip: choose one in a different hotel!

We stayed at this property for the 2nd time in March thinking that is was upgraded from last April 2011. We got a great upgraded 2 br suite last year at no additional charge which made it easy to plan our trip for this year. WRONG WRONG -- our room was nasty, not re-done, dirty, furniture was nasty too. No upgrades. The place need a complete over haul.
The elevators always have problems, take forever or just don;t work.
The price is cheap and location is great. Expensive to sit on the beach, $10 umbrella, $5 chairs - free at the pool. Stay at your own risk!
If you check in and are given a "key" - ask for an room newly remodled.
Lots or most of the rooms/suites are owned my someone not necassarily the hotel owners.
Never go back

Room Tip: Ask for a newly remodled room and do not go during Spring break.

The hotel hallways, as everybody has already stated, are dated and damaged. But realizing the kind of guests that stay here, its easy to understand and accept. The tiki bar is fun, right on the beach, and active. Dennis Rodman is a regular to give you an idea of the kind of crowd your going to get there (not that there are a lot of celebrities.) We also had the penthouse, which was in the middle of a reservation at the time. It was perfect for us, but I'm sure many others would be dissatisfied with the state of the room. I saw some of the more updated rooms as well, which looked modern, clean, and overall excellent. I will advice this is probably not the best hotel to go to with a family, but it's great and well run considering the crowd.

Room Tip: Get reservations and ask about whether that floor or room has been or is being renovated.
