I don't want you to waste your time for reading my review (what I did not like), I'll make it short: SIMPLY DO NOT GO THERE. I definitely will not do it again and will not recommend to others.
Poor customer service. They were rude. Had to wait over an hour for the bus. No breakfast. Terrible service all round. The towels were like rock. This is the worst days Inn I've been to. You'll letting other days Inn look bad. I've been to a lot of days inn. This is the worst.
The shuttle driver that took us to the airport.
The room smelled like cigarettes and smoke and it was muggy. We turned on the A/C and it made the smell worse. The bathroom was small and had tiles missing which looked like a bug or small rodent could crawl through the hole at any time. There were no food options close so we had to order out.The vending machine on the 1st level was not working properly, and the sound of the train got to be annoying.
Convenient for our pre-cruise stay with complimentary airport pick up and port drop off (we just missed the changed in port drop off fee by one day). Got the room in the back so there was no problem with noises. Staff is very friendly.
The price was VERY cheap via Kayak.com
Although the shuttle driver for the airport PREACHED that he was ALWAYS on time and NEVER ran late and would leave hotel guests at the hotel if they weren't on time to board, he himself was late in picking us back up from the airport upon our return. We waited for 1 hour for him to show up after we called the hotel and they initially said that he was already on his way; which, apparently, he was not since the drive was only 13 minutes long. We were just about to hire a taxi when he finally showed up with a woman in the passenger seat that was NOT an employee! Our opinion is that he was occupied doing something else with this woman when he should have been working.
No breakfast Bugs Bad area
Very convenient for my house-hunting trip. Restaurants, grocery store and gyms within easy drive. The staff was the best part of the stay. From the Front Office staff, to the Room attendants, everyone was friendly and helpful. When I met with the General Manager to discuss issues with my rental car he was extremely helpful and generous with his time. I would stay here again mainly because of the great treatment from all of the staff.
There was some road noise so I just went to the Publix supermarket and purchased ear plugs. Problem solved.
The size of the rooms
Managerial staff excellent.....everything else was terrible!
Dirty and nothing worked in the room......microwave burnt inside. Hair dryer didnt work. Irdered a nonsmoking room with king bed and was given a smoking room with 2 double beds. Extremely dirty. Do not stay here.
Stayed at multiple days inn and always been satisfied. However our room was dirty and smelled like cigarette, which could be do to the housekeeping staff smoking while cleaning the rooms. To top the overall experience, we woke up with a homeless person sleeping outside our room (third floor), next to the vending machine. And we had to somehow manage to reach our car with the whole parking lot flooded after some average rain.
No smoking room with a terrible cigarette smell!
The price was OK
Older property with lots of decay and overused mattresses.
shuttle to airport was ontime and fast. Friendly driver. Front desk staff were good
rooms were dated and pool not the cleanest looking. Nothing close by. Need a cab to get anywhere
The only nice the was the driver
I was quickly transferred out of a room to one that didn't smell like smoke. Updated TV, and didn't expect a fridge because some of these older and cheaper hotels won't spare that kind of expense, but there was a fridge (and microwave, I think)
Staff member that checked me in was sloooow. I think it took about 15 min for her to complete check-in and give me my key. Plus, I had already paid for my room and did pre-check in through here, so I don't know what the holdup was. Even though I was transferred to a room that didn't smell like smoke, I could smell the smoke coming through the bathroom vents from the room upstairs. They should really have smoking rooms on one side of the building and non-smoking on the other. Rooms were dated and could use improvements, but that's to be expected.
The room was fine.
The shuttle service stops at midnight and had I know that I wouldn't have stayed here because my flight didn't arrive until 11:55pm. The manager seemed in-different to my problem with the shuttle service and was not going to do anything about it. She also didn't know what the website said about having shuttle service.
The man on staff was very nice and helpful.
We arrived late late after a long days travel and couldn't even get into the room because the keys wouldn't work. The man on staff was very nice and helpful, but the hotel was a dump. It's in a bad neighborhood, was very dirty and smelled like cigarettes and booze. We straight up cancelled and left
The closeness to airport... Premium channels..staff friendly ...police on duty... Hot water
beds .insects .smoke odor rooms. amenity sparse .Towels Rooms dirty.. fridge dirty. mold shower. drapes
I like how friendly the staff were
I didn't like the fact that the hotel is right next to the train tracks. The noise didn't bother me because our room was on the other end. They also took a $50 security deposit when you check in and take $2 away for each night. When we checked in and went to the room there was used condoms in the trash which was disgusting to me. They didn't give us new rolls of toilet paper, the bathroom had a roll of toilet paper that was almost finish. The room service took the used towels but didn't replace them with new ones. There was also a lot of men outside at night next to my room. That was kind of crippy. They didn't bother us though. Other than that, it was a good stay.
rate, room had new carpet and bedding, mini fridge and microwave
not the best location
very close to railroad tracks and I95 could hear traffic all night long and the blowing of the train whistle
Good location if flying in or out of FLL. Convenient airport shuttle.
Not much food selection if you don't have a vehicle. Stay away from Checkers
Room and grounds were clean. Pool area well maintained
Local trains constantly going by blasting their horns
Location was beside a major rail line - trains all the time They tried to upgrade the place but it is still poor I would not recommend this hotel
Conveniently located, good rate for weekend we were booking
Very dirty, our sink as well as the bar of soap were CLEARLY used \ not cleaned between customers. When brought up to front desk they said "feel free to let the manager know" instead of switching the rooms or sending someone to rectify the error in customer service
-We were going on a cruise our of Port Everglades and this hotel provides a free shuttle service from the FLL airport and the port, which is why we chose it. The shuttle service was very good and timely. -I didn't need any help from the staff, but the check-in and check-out process went fine.
-Location of the hotel is not good, and there is no restaurants within close walking distance(closest was a Denny's about 15 minutes away). The restaurant that is shown to be next to the hotel on google maps and etc. does not exist. -The room was not the cleanest, and the sheets were stained in multiple places on both beds. -Upon lifting the bed mattresses, one of them had a fairly large foldable knife underneath it. This was surprising, but not completely surprising given the type of people I saw staying in the other rooms. I didn't feel that safe staying at this hotel. -There was only shampoo provided, no conditioner. -The breakfast was very limited, basically just cereal, oatmeal, a few fruits, and that was about it. -The room is not insulated against sound very well, and anyone talking while walking by was easily heard. -Power was going out when we left, not sure if this was a hotel problem or an electric company problem.
Overall experience was good
The rooms were ok and the breakfast was good
The reception staff were so rude and unfriendly
The room was clean, with a modern look and comfortable. They let me use their computer, wi-fi and printer for free. The Office and the breakfast area were very good. Nice breakfast! Better than I expected!
The overall outside area of the hotel looked dirty. The elevator was very slow, so we had to use the stairs all thru the fourth floor, continuously. The train passes by very nearly and you could hear the sounds of the train until late at night and very early in the morning.
It was old, dirty, the website said it had a restaurant and bar, and had neither!! There was water leaking everywhere outside from the air conditioners, and there was a railroad track directly behind the motel - maybe 50 feet away. The train ran about every 20-30 minutes. The room I stayed in had a hole in the bathroom wall, with toilet tissue stuffed in it. Overall BAD EXPERIENCE!!!
