It is a "nothing special hotel", next to a very busy road. Luckily my room was not noisy. Maybe the breakfast is a little boring after a few days. Also the wireless had problems in my room.
The staff were very pleasant & helpful. The hotel was in a prime location and we could use two beaches. One was within 5 - 10 minutes walking distance and the 'Fort Lauderdale Beach' was 5 - 10 minutes on the bus. There were a great choice of restaurants in the area too.
Too far from airport and ship port. Was not clean. Didn't book our shuttle when we requested it. Continental Breakfast was awful.
This hotel was an unexpected treat because has the original architecture, lighting and friendly staff without even trying to market their retro vibe. Reminds me of the hotels in the south florida mysterIes I love to read, Best part, I was a little worried because I was unfamiliar with the area, no problems at all, we even left our car unlocked without knowing. Great bar and fun bartender, make sure you ask the price of the "Skittle" shot offered before you order one or more!!!
Customer service was horrible. I damaged by vehicle on the building because there were no signs warning me of a sharp turn. When I asked for help the staff was rude. When I asked for assistance from the manager over the phone he made excuses for his staff and refused to help with expenses to fix my vehicle.
Nothing. I could not wait to check out. Nonsmoking room smelled like smoke. the room I was transferred to had the A.C. off. I had the front desk figure out the connection. the room did not cool off until after 3 A.M.
The staff was very friendly. I was happy to be close to the beach. For the money I paid, I was very far from the airport and any sort of night life. But that was definitely not the worst. I do not like to give bad reviews, but the room was hot and musty, the mattresses were covered in plastic and worst of all, my friend got BED BUGS. Talk about being embarrassed about booking that room. I would not recommend the hotel to anyone.
The hotel was located across the street from the beach which was easily accessible. Many restaurants and clubs were nearby. Staff was helpful when we were in need of cab service. The bathroom, although small, had been recently renovated. The hotel is in need of updating. Many things were outdated. We felt the room was overpriced, although we were there during high season.
I liked the staff, the kinda retro vibe, low keyed. It was right next to the beach, just had to cross the A1A. Bar right there, free breakfast. Lauderdale by the Sea is more relaxed than Ft. Lauderdale and they didn't allow spring breakers in so there was never loud noise. I would highly recommend this hotel. It was all fine. It isn't luxury by any means so if you like super fancy, this isn't the place. Other than that, it was perfect.
Staff was was friendly, WIFI was very sporadic....and had to be outside to use it. So bring a long Ethernet cable as the port may not be in an ideal location (mine was hidden behind the TV stand) . Bar was closed (by the state of Florida.....not sure why.) Close to Beach, local stores and restaurants. Not fancy....no frills....but a good value. WIFI isn't strong ....must be outside of room (in patio area) to use. Even then it was sporadic. Parking was a little limited due to the rear parking lot losing about 10 spaces due to being flooded.
Nothing that we liked, my wife wanted to leave immediately and couldn't wait to leave, we travel the world, but this hotel is no three star, may be less than one.
I didn't like anything about the place. It's old smell and I found bugs on the sink. The manager offered another room and told me, guest bring the bugs in REALLY! Awful place
Very friendly place NO
We had originally booked another hotel, but after discovering an infestation of fleas in the bed, we wanted to move. Tropicaire checked us in at close to midnight after a last minute booking and then provided us with their largest room/apartment. They were very accomidating. The service was good. While the hotel is still a budget "mom and pop" place, we were comfortable and the price was good. We found two cockroaches during our 4 night stay. Not as bad as fleas, but still a bit gross. We just killed them and got over it, but I dont think I would book this place again.
We received perfect service and was very welcomed by owner. Also left camera in room and called the camera was found and returned by owner. Nice to see honesty still exists! Very pretty courtyard and clean pool.
Tropicaire was Clean and comfortable with a.Good price point ! If your looking for a Fancy hi rise, this is not what your looking. Small family owned, very peaceful and relaxing location within walking distance to restaurants and beach. No
It is a peaceful relaxing place to stay and a short walk to both beach major food store and mall and pier....no need to jump in the car as in most cases, and Ted the manager is it seems there 24 / 7 to cover our needs,
A nice motel centrally situated in Lauderdale on a very quiet street. It is about 200 meters from the beach and close to shops and restaurants. The motel is built as a horse shoe around a quiet pool. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I'd recommend this motel to anyone visiting the area. All guests were happy to chat to each other, a very pleasant atmosphere. N/A
Excellent manager, he put himself out to ensure everyones comfort.

hotel owner was nice this appears to be an apt for low income people
I loved the clean, crisp look of the decor and tile flooring. The bathroom and bedding were basic but clean and bright. It was in a prime location and walking distance to many retail and, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. We were leaving for a cruise and the port everglades area is just a mile away. For the price it was an excellent place and the staff was friendly, but were a little strict about people smoking by their vehicles on the street. They also had a closed off courtyard/patio around back that had chairs, picnic tables and flowers to relax and enjoy the sunny weather. Definitely recommend. Staff were friendly but seemed strict in my opinion to tell someone they cant stand by their own vehicle to smoke.
Angel was very cheerful and helpful!
Staff was friendly and location was good. Just a short walk to the beach and shops. Good value. Mattress was basic and pretty firm. The room, in particular the bathroom, was dated and in need of renovations. The pool was right in front and not very private from the street or other rooms. Decorative fountains had green water that needed to be cleaned.
No available non smoking rooms. The bed was infected with bed bugs. The airconditioning system didn't work properly.
Wooden floor instead of carpet made it cleaner The area is not safe
location and price. Good value motel in touristic and pricy south florida. not free wifi.
The room was very clean. Not being able to check in early after driving for 12 hours even though I called ahead several times to check to see if the room was ready.
The price was good, the staff was very nice, and I also liked that their vending machines rook credit cards. The sheets were very scratchy and the towels were worse. I only had about 1/8 of a toilet paper roll and no extra one.
The only good thing about this place was their pricing. - Stained sheets in bed. - Not soundproof at all. - Very loud neighbours. - Unfriendly neighbourhood. In general this place felt like the cheapest motel on the street.
They were quick to take my money and slow to realize that they were overbooked. Next time, they should know how many people are coming and how many rooms they have available. I do not recommend.
(1) I did not like having to pay for internet access when other hotels/motel have internet access free (2) I did not like not having an iron and iron board in my room.
Very noisy, shabby looking bedspread, noisy air conditioner. People talking loudly in hallyway at 4:00 AM
Cheap, not too far from FL Room smelled of smoke, even though was non-smoking. Could do with a refurb. Had no problems but didn't feel 100% safe. Would personally look elsewhere next time.
Slept night before early air travel I requested non-smoking...I Am very allergic to smells..and the room flat out stunk...of cigarette smoke...and stale smells...horrible......i was disappointed in booking because I requested non-smoking, and hotel staff told me that the reason I was not given priorty was that I booked through you...will not do that again
Upon arriving to hotel around 10 PM tired I was told that my room has been reserved for somebody else and that they were sorry but they had no rooms for me until someone walked in behind me and they sold my room to him for a higher rate in front of me and said sorry we have right of first refusal over third party company I booked from!!
No phone to contact front desk. Person in front desk is not knowledgeable to give specific detection to room. No specific maps
Nothing Location, condition of room, and not safe
Clean, comfortable bed. Sketchy neighborhood, difficult parking, lengthy time to check in
Nothing. Price was ok but when it's all said and done your spending $100. The place was trashed. I asked why the King bed room was more then the 2 standard beds and the guy said because it had a fridge and microwave. I said I'd upgrade because I was hoping for a fridge. When I got to the room there was no fridge or microwave. The room was dirty and gross. Next morning I called down asking for late checkout. Lady said its $10 every hour past 11, she reluctantly said I could have till 11:30. Didn't matter, house keeping was banging on my door at 10:55. I told them the front desk gave me till 11:30. Then at 11:25 they were banging on the door again, I was getting dressed when the guy opened my door, luckily I had the safety lock on above or he would've come right in. Worst hotel stay ever. It's not worth the 10-30 savings over other budget places.
I hated everything about this "motel"!! Worst experience I have ever had! I hated everything about this "motel"! The location was terrible! Located in the ghetto with a terrible crime rate! The motel room smelled horrible! Vending machines didn't work so you couldn't even get a drink at the motel! There was no coffee in the room! There were no hangers, hairdryer or soap! The room didn't even have a remote for the tv! Terrible experience and the price was outrageous!! Worst mistake ever!!
The proximity to where I was working that day. Everything about this hotel/motel should be demolished. On the opposite side of where most of the people were staying, there were about 6 windows broken, doors completely ripped off. If I have children, this place is not an option. Police have to monitor the motel to make sure people don't get out of hand during the night. I would never recommend this place to anybody.
Run down and in need of remodeling
The worst place I ever stayed The bed had big steel parts sticking out
Nothing Their was mildow on the walls their beds were basty they had drug dealers all around the hotel and people walking with guns up an down the streets I would like a refund - adam
