I stayed at this hotel.It looked nice with fresh comfortable beds and was clean but,
around 8 in the morning the doors started to slam.This is an older hotel with spring loaded doors.
If you plan on sleeping in then do not stay there.If you like doors slamming as your alarm them do so.

Room Tip: All rooms have spring loaded doors without anti slam devices so there is no quiet spot in the hotel.

Dear fulflaps,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I can understand how frustrating it can be to be woken by outside noises and sincerely apologize for your experience. All of our doors do have hydraulic closures that ensure that they close completely for security reasons. They close quickly to about six inches away from the door frame. They then slowly pull the door completely and securely closed. Normally, the doors do not slam, but there is some latching noise as the door closes.

When the weather is just right, our guests are enticed to open up their balcony doors and enjoy the fresh Florida air. If someone has their balcony door open it can create a wind tunnel effect that can inevitably cause the door to slam. Our new air conditioned units in the hallways have reduced this effect, but on occasion the breeze can overpower our positive air flow.

We will continue to research and implement new technologies that will help improve our guest’s experience.

Kindest regards,

Rob Lewis, General Manager

I stayed here for two evenings for a visit with an uncle in nearby Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. Very convenient to the beach, US1, restaurants, and shopping. Quiet room and friendly staff. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the west-facing side. The East facing side faces US1/Federal Highway. Could be noiser...

This is our third stay at this Courtyard Marriott. We have been well pleased with the service and enjoy the buffet breakfasts daily. The grounds are well kept, the rooms are clean, and the pool is nice. There is always plenty of parking and this hotel is a short drive from the airport, beach, and shopping. There is always complimentary lemon water and coffee in the lobby. We will return to this hotel on our next trip to visit family.

Room Tip: We have staying in different areas on each of the 3 visits. Cannot complain about any of them.

I try to stay here when I am in the area. Great front desk staff!! Very helpful and friendly and recognize me when I walk in the front door which makes you feel good! Breakfast in the restaurant is much better quality! Nice fitness room as well.
Convenient to the interstate and several great area restaurants!
Can be a little pricey in the winter months but not out of line with other local hotels.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the pool! Quite compared to street side.
