Location. Pool. WiFi. Kitchen. Dirty. Needs updating all over.
They lied on late checkou They lied on late checkout, tried to charge more money
We really enjoyed our stay at Lafayette Motel. The staff was very helpful and we were greeted with a smile (scarse on these days). Very nice location. I'm looking forward to come back soon.Sanjay the Front Desk Agent was very nice to us by offering us a description of the area and by offering us different tours to make our stay more enjoyable. Great stay
location hotel room; refrigerator sitting on chair with a phone book under the refrigerator to keep it level.
An old style Americana type motel in the middle of modernity. Somewhat quirky and probably won't appeal to many people who expect steel/glass/granite of new hotels. Only a few minutes from the beach of Fort Lauderdale.
The hotel was run down and not clean holes in the wall bathroom door didn't close it was completely awful. Hotel has potential but renovation is greatly needed!!!!!
Closer to the beach The air conditioner was blowing out very good , the floors was sweet good enough , no tub plug , ran out of towels during my stay
Staff was friendly and it has a pool and close to the beach and restaurants Easy check out and the price was best in town I found. Parking was easy and convenience Has wifi The room I had was old and didn't feel very comfortable Washroom was somewhat dirty and feels disgusting Still using the old big TV Has wifi but no password given unless you call front desk Overall feels uncomfortable and couldn't sleep or shower in it yet I got to say they cleaned it pretty well. It just feels too old and uncomfortable
It was clean. They tried to keep the hookers and drug dealers on the first and second floor and everyone else on the third. Very seedy. I was staying with my adult daughter and I didn't feel safe for her or myself at all. Even though the prostitutes and dealers seemed to have been assigned rooms on the lower floors they would roam the breezeways of the third. The elevator's safety inspection certificate expired in 2008 and I could tell was self-maintained due to the button on the third floor said 2 and was turned sideways. The TV was a twenty inch CRT model that only received a religious station probably due to on air broadcasters ceasing analog transmissions in 2009. I honestly believe that this could potentially dangerous place to stay and would not under any circumstances stay with young children.
budgethotel and unfortunately not very clean rooms not clean
große Suite. big Room. very dirty, two cockroach in the refrigerator one in the bathroom! Next room without animals but not cleanly, in the kitchen was the dirt and the trash from previous owner in the Cabinets! Never come back!!!
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Terrible condition. Holes in the walls,broken tiles in the ceiling and shower. Very dirty. If it wasn't just for one night I would have left and gone to another hotel.
Housekeepers spend too much time cleaning the room. I had to ask them to hurry up
The location was convient. Was close to ft lauderdale airport and cruise port, port Everglades. Had a few convenient stores and fast food in walking distance. Could not understand the staff well. The room was clean enough but not impressive, room smelled but tolerable. The door lock was broken so made us feel uncomfortable. Would not stay for more than one night.
made me go online to get the lowest rate. he could have just charged me what i was paying on kayak, instead he made life a little more difficult by forcing me to book online.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
Too far from airport and ship port. Was not clean. Didn't book our shuttle when we requested it. Continental Breakfast was awful.
Very friendly place NO
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.
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
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.
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,
Please write at least 15 words
hotel owner was nice this appears to be an apt for low income people
Location and room They were not there to check us in- we had to wait an hour in the heat outside. The suite had window unit that was off, therefore the suite was extremely hot. It did not cool down. Florida was in the 90s. We slept hot. Expensive to receive this service.
Great location & solid WiFi! (Hotel Employee) & staff were very nice & attentive. Even threw party for guests during local parade. Hotel 1 block from beach & boardwalk with restaurants & bars in short walking distance. Washer & Everything was at the very least acceptable.
Location and cleanliness and the fact that I could cook and not have to go out and eat. The price.
Towards the end of the board walk Close to several eating places Outside music / bar on property 2 free hrs. bicycle rental Staff very nice and helpful Free WiFi You can only check in until 9 and then office closes Was not given Wi-Fi password and it wasn't in the room so I couldn't work my first night (apology given, and accepted)
on the beach bar scene
Quaint, friendly staff. We chose the Rip Tide because we wanted the charm of the classic motel/hotels of years ago & it fit our wants/needs Definitely not their fault, but Mother Nature put a "damper" on our stay!! We made the best of it but could only imagine that nicer weather would've only made the charm & experience that much better!
Decent sized room, nice TV, and a mini fridge Bugs in the room!! and very thin walls (but not ultimately a huge problem)
Unfortunately I cannot judge the hotel adequately at the moment as I had beg bug attack in it. Everything went fine until the last day, when I woke up with bytes on my body. I was victim of a bed bugs attack, and this was confirmed also by the hotel owner after checking the room.
It was clean-close to my appointmentsWould recommend it for a night or twoReasonable rate Bed was hard and Uncomfortable-lots of outside noise Not for a long stay
Our room was large but I did not care but I did not care for the way it was designed. The kitchenette had a sink that served as the sink for the entire room - no bathroom sink. It was clean, but I would probably choose another place in the future.
The hotel is aged, but clean and adequate. The young couple who run it were so helpful and nice. Didn't like the lighting in the room. Could have used a second bedside lamp and 'warmer' lighting instead of the white light bulbs. Location is great! Neighborhood seems safe, street is a major one so we never got lost and found plenty of amenities nearby. Having a Starbucks next door was very nice! Free internet was appreciated, although we got bounced off now and then. Expected complimentary bath products (shampoo/conditioner) and was surprised to not get any. Swimming pool looked inviting, but we never had time to use it. No elevator and we were not offered a downstairs room. It was not fun dragging our large suitcases up the stairs, but we managed. All in all, we felt that we got good value for the price we paid, and would definitely recommend Bali Hai to our friends. If we ever return to Fort Lauderdale, we would probably return to this hotel too.
Good price for clean, quiet, modern single King room. Shuttle to airport was a nice convenience. The staff were friendly. Decent place to stay if you just need a room overnight in close proximity to FLL. Only a very slight annoyance: a rail line runs just a block or so west of the hotel, so the occasional train horn in the middle of the night might keep light sleepers from getting a full night rest.
great location to the airport and nice clean facilities. Rooms were a bit noisy, and I felt the staff could've been a bit more accommodating and friendly.
Convenient to the airport, booked at the last minute during an unexpected layover in FLL. Clean, feels very new. A bit sterile; other than the airport, not too much going on
