location to sun life stadium staff was rude and room check-in is disfunctional. room should have been ready much sooner than it was.
Our suite was very nice. Really enjoyed the comfort. The air smelled like cologne-covering smoke, but it didn't.
we only stayed for 2 nights and we really liked the swimming area and the casino the room was just what we wanted we will visit again the next time we are in florida 5 star all the way
The hotel is a self-contained city...lots of shops and restaurants...the downside was its a casino on Indian property so smoking is allowed----YUCK!
The pool area made you feel like you were far away on an Island resort The room lighting, not enough. Felt like it was cloudy outside bcs the rooms were dark. Need better lighting
The beds and linens were wonderful in our room. Room service for breakfast was excellent. The pool area is really lovely, both day and night. Rod Stewart's show was excellent. We found the hotel staff, with the exception of security people, were rather "grumpy".and this includes bartenders.
Thought the mattresses were not that firm and comfortable. And if you have a king size bed include king size pillows with the bed . The pillows are so worn and small . Didn't like that the outside venue seemed abandoned not as many shops most things were closed while I was there . Was unaware there was construction. And after talking to a shop employee she said it's been torn up outside for so long and nothing has been done with the space . Definitely not the same fun place I visited several years ago. Seems like the outdoor area is getting rundown.
The staff was very friendly and the pool was great The construction work that is going on was woken up at 5am and 6am two days in a row from construction machinery and jackhammering
The casino wasgreat (even tho' we lost). Thefood was usually of good value. Our room was niceand the bed was great but itwas almost a mile walk from the elevator and wewerelocked out onASaturday night foralmost an hour!
I love the enviroment, staff, most resturant & shopping The only thing I dislike on every trip is room service, not the service itself but the food is of poor quaility. I made an inquiry a few trips back and found out it was prepared by The Blue Plate, where I dine after 1am as it was the only one open.....it's horrible!!!
Beautiful hotel and pool. Great staff Got to the hotel late Sunday night. Not much to do at the hotel during the week.
I can not tell you just how horrible our stay was. we were still awake at 9am from the noise in the hall ,the next room was party city. How many whores can fit in a hotel room? even the dirt in the hallways and elevators surprised us. this isn't a hotel on the weekends it is like a sorority house with absolutely no rules and no regard for anyone elses sensibilities. horrible horrible stay.
They aré remodeling all the hotel, so all services and features are not available
Location of hotel, Rooms were nice Poor Customer Service 45 min line just to check into your room I understand it was Memorial Day weekend, but over staff and prepare for large crowds. We were a wedding and booked 95 rooms they did nothing to accommodate us. Trash was left in hallways for 2+ days Front desk wouldn't give us enough wrist bands for pool. I was overall shocked, very poor hospitality!
Being on the beach was amazing and the faculties for the event was one of the best I have ever seen The balconies were all closed off, the staff were rude and argued with you, no place to get food during the day. This please looks like a high end resort but has the amanties of a best western
Location of the hotel is great, beautiful pool and patio, Great staff overall. The hotel is under heavy construction switching from Westin to Hilton So if you like the sound of pile drivers at 6h00am every morning.... Nothing was told or specified when we made our reservation that the hotel was a construction site!!! Not professional at all!
The location and beach access. Hotel was beautiful and comfortable. Construction didn't take away from beauty of hotel. The resort fees. Just include in price up front.
Love the pool and the view of the beach! Everything was clean! Couldn't take food outside to the pool or a cooler. Security guards were annoying on that.
Pool area is fantastic, beachfront hotel and staff were accomodating and most of them freindly. very expensive to buy anything at the hotel. Room was not perfect but the beach view was memorable!! Worth the extra $$. There was no free wifi even with the pricy room! not acceptable these days.
Nice people and when things weren't right they made it right.
I stayed at this property 3 years ago. Then the hotel was a bit ragged and showing its age. Since Hilton has taken over they've done an amazing job fixing the hotel. It's pricey but I was on an expense account
THE beach, the room, the lobby I was charged for everything! Even charged for receiving a delivery package. At the end, it ended up being a very expensive hotel.
Worst cell and internet reception
Excellent location, very nice pools and grounds, nice bathroom and comfortable beds, good TV selection, wonderful beach. Part of the hotel is under renovation and we could not go outside to our balcony. They were all locked and dirty from the reconstruction. We have stayed here about 5 yrs ago and everything was perfect. Everything is still very well kept ,but the hotel is starting to show signs of wear. So, the renovation is on time. Finish date is Fall 2016. I can't wait to see it. We will be back. Hotel very crowded and busy this holiday weekend.
A little expensive
Location Staff from the pool really rude open more time the pool
Staff were absolutely amazing, thumbs up to the crew. The pool is absolutely beautiful, rooms clean, beach is five seconds from the pool. Highly recommend staying here!!!
I loved everything about the place The only thing I didn't like I was treated to two days at the hotel and it was paid for at checkout I was charged for hotel fee complimentary water a chair on beach that was a bit strange they should include it in the price especially When U check in and they tell you it's complimentry I get a bit cheated
Location, great pool, lots of on site food choices, no need to even leave the resort The housekeepers would forget to clean the room. Mattress is terrible
Elizabeth the front desk person was excellent room was not ready at check in. location.. no beach access
The staff was super friendly, they recognized me by name every time I walked in the hotel. It was just a girlfriend and I staying here during our college spring break and we felt extremely safe while staying here which is important for a couple of females when in a place they have never been before. The pool area was somewhere we hadn't planned on using much since the beach is so close but we had some windier days while visiting so the pool was the perfect solution since it's more protected from the wind. The hotel is only a short walking distance from the boardwalk, restaurants, and Walmart so you have lots of stuff right close by if you don't have a car and don't want to pay for a cab. The hotel is also one of the stops for the water taxi so that can also get you most of the places along the board walk using that. The $18 self parking fee per night was kind of ridiculous to me. I loved the fact that it had a security gate although people could still walk past it. The self parking area didn't have a side entrance so you had to walk back around to the front of the hotel which wasn't that far of a walk but what bothered me the most is it wasn't well lit area. Other than that though, we had an overall great stay!
Very big rooms. Each room has a balcony & a kitchen
The pool area is very nice & it overlooks the intercoastal waterway. Cool little Tiki Bar and wonderful staff. I do not think it was clear the beach is not any easy walk from Resort and you can barely see ocean, ocean view rooms, very misleading. If I stayed there again, I would stay in a room that overlooked pool area/sound side. If you are not an beach/ocean lover, it would be a great place for you.
Across the road from the beach. Room was clean. The pool on the waterfront was cool. Water taxi came to the hotel and was only $26 for an all day pass. The noise from the elevator. Only 3 doors down but still was quite loud. Area was away from the bars and restaurants. Needed to get an taxi to most places.
Excellent location and very nice hotel. We really enjoyed our stay at the Crowne Plaza. A bit pricey to eat at the hotel.
Approx. 300 meters to the beach, nice pool area and situated to a "river" with a very nice view from our room. Rooms are large.
Very clean room. Very helpfull staff. Beach is across the street. Great location to restaurants.
The rooms were great Paying 25 bucks to valet everyday was ridiculous.
The staff here were great,especially the cleaning crew. I did not like paying $17 a day to park my own car.
Good for the Money to much noise from neighbor rooms
The room was spacious and clean. I also liked that there was an exercise facility on site. I was attending a conference at the Westin and the Crowne Plaza was very close to that (walking distance) and the cost was half the money.
the value for the money everything was nice only issue is the tub could have been cleaner
Overall everything was amazing, clean, huge and full equipped room, what's surprised! Close to the beach and very quiet ambient. Pool and bbq are nice too.
I specifically requested a first floor room near the beach due to the fact that I have two very young children and they went above and beyond a provided my family with the cottage room closest to the boardwalk/beach! I absolutely love this property and my mother and I want to spend at least one weekend a month, if not every other month, at this property!
Location near the Broadwalk, walking distance to the beach, bed and couch were somewhat comfortable, small kitchen with plates, glasses, and utensils, full fridge You can tell the remodeling work is rushed, outside windows were very dirty, shower heads are crusty and in desperate need of replacing
I liked that the staff was attentive and it was in a great location. Steps away from restaurant's on the board walk or across the street. And of course minutes away from the beach. They provide free beach chairs and towels so that's a plus. Minor plumbing issues. Staff was attentive. I would suggest you ask for a 2nd floor room.
This is a fantastic location for people who want to be steps from the beach. There were a lot of fun shops and restaurants in the area. The hotel itself was very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. They have beach chairs and towels for guests to use. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a $6 a day charge to park a car.
Hit anything on beach or boardwalk with in a minutes time Staff nice but not eager...son says needs better WiFi
It is an inexpensive place near the beach. You probably save at least $50 over the next cheapest place. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Let's face it you get what you pay for. The price was very good and you were a block away from the sand. The facility is old and showing its age. The rooms very cheaply decorated and the bed was awful. Dehumidifiers in the rooms would go a long way to improve the experience.
Beach chairs and towels included. Very clean and bright, fun colors.
I loved the room! Very clean and quiet with a nice modern look. Having the beach and boardwalk so close is a huge bonus. A lot of the shops on the boardwalk were open WAY later than I expected them to be seeing as it was during the week. I will definitely be using this hotel again. The only downfall I came across was the late check in procedure. My plane was delayed 2 hours, so by the time I got to the hotel the office was closed. I was a bit uncomfortable with my room key just being in an envelope in a box where anybody could have grabbed it. (I didn't realize that the office closed at 11pm, but that was my fault for not double checking. I had originally scheduled a late check in, but would have been there before 10 so that conversation never came up.)
A real throwback facility, but that's part of the charm. Couldn't ask for a better location in terms of proximity to beach, restaurants and saloons. .
Our group of 12 guys went down for the Jets v Miami football game 11/4-7. The staff and facilities were top notch. The pool area was small but nice. The location can't be beat, right on the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, steps from the beach. Everything you need for your stay is in walking distance. Fly into FLL and 15 minutes late and $13 shared cab ride later you are enjoying everything South Florida has to offer.
Pool; marina and waterway views; ability to extend checkout no problem. Difficulty with electronic door lock. Only on checkout was problem disclosed as a battery problem. I'll remember this next stay, should it happen again. Housekeeping supervisor contacted security right away to have battery changed.
Great hotel, great service. Our door balcony messed up on us and they moved us into a nicer room with a view to accommodate the inconvenience. Staff was nice and took great care of us. I would definitely go back again
Nice rooms, comfortable big beds, good price for location Not the most beautiful from the outside where we stayed. Came a day earlier than reservation and they were sold out. Parking $25 a night!
Location was convenient, staff was accommodating Older, a little beat up, not secure at all, parking was terrible, not great value for the money
It was a great hotel. The rooms were updated and comfortable. Will highly recommend. Nothing
Easy to book last minute. Needs maintenance. Very simple hotel
Intercoastal view with a big tree blocking from seing anything
Ants in room, being charged for a 23 oz draft but only getting a 16 oz glass.
Location to the convention center The lobby was extremely chaotic and loud. There is nothing near the hotel that gives you options for dining out as far as I could tell.
Great location, comfortable room Hallways and bathrooms were not clean to Hilton standards
setting no breakfast before 7 am
Staff was friendly A/C did not work and carpets were dirty
Airport shuttle everything else
The Tiki bar & airport shuttle. This hotel was fine for the price & what I needed - one night to catch a flight the following day. My tub dripped but there was a door to the tub/toilet so I just shut it.
The only thing good about this place was the staff Rooms dirty, furniture was broken or coming a part. Trash cans were full the night we checked in and wasn't emptyed the morning we left. Lesson learned if you book with Kayak make sure you know the quality of the hotel yourself. Don't rely on their BS reviews. I also learned Kayak doesn't reimburse me for early checkout which is total BS because I relyed on their reviews when booking this hotel. I will not use kayak again.
Nothing Rooms dirty. They never did housekeeping. You would have to go to the lobby to pick up your towels and soap. This place is dirty and low class
The free shuttle was great. Very convenient and on time. Just call hotel, and arrival time for shuttle is within 10 min. Small bar onsite. Kim was very friendly and helped us order takeout for ourselves at the bar. Friendly desk staff, and great shuttle service. Rooms are clean, showers work well. Would stay there again, when flying into Ft. Lauderdale.
We liked the location....near the airport and near the cruise port and that they have a free shuttle. Also, the room rate is usually decent. Although the rooms appear pretty clean the entire building and furnishings are in dire need of a remodel/update.
Courtesy shuttle , pool bar open until midnight Crappy breakfast included,
not clean and needs serious updating
Great pick up from air port and organized shuttles to cruise port, breakfast hot and cold Room smelled stale, door barely shut, long walk to room from front desk
The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I was very pleased with the shuttle from the airport and to the cruise port. Everyone was very accommodating. Breakfast was a bit hectic. It was nice to have a free breakfast, but too many people crammed into a small space.
Love the location and cery friendly staff.
Excelent location, clean room and bathroom. Over priced, the hotel isold, the door needs repair, the bathroom door has to be changed, it started to exfoliate
This was a great place to stay. It was very nice and looked more modern than most of the hotels on the strip. Staff very friendly and helpful. Most rooms had a beautiful view of the ocean! The higher your room the better. Beds were very comfy. Room amenities: Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, ice bucket, 4 glasses, safe, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner/bath gel dispenser in shower, iron/board, mirrors on the closet doors, 2 bottles of water daily They also offered 2 welcome drinks from the bar upon arrival, free beach towels and 2 free beach chairs daily. Location: The location of this hotel was good for us. It is located at the corner of A1A and Sunrise Blvd. The beach was right across the street and this section of the beach wasn't as crowded. We did not need to rent a car. There was plenty of things within a block surrounding the hotel. There was a Thai sushi place, 24hr pizza place, Mediterranean/Vegan spot, deli/sandwich shop, ice cream, popcorn, Subway, 7 Eleven. There were also several souvenir shops, a pub and a couple of other small restaurants. We rented a scooter from Fun Rentals right behind the hotel so we could explore a little further. Great transportation without paying for valet parking. We also used the beach shuttle ($3/person). Other transportation options include Trolley ($1/ride), City bus (bus stop right out front), cab, Uber, bike rentals. The nightlife is about a mile south of the hotel (30 min walk) on A1A. The Galleria mall was about 1/2 mile west on Sunrise blvd...not far at all. Overall this was a great place and we would stay here again. The pool was sort of small though. I would have liked a microwave as well though. Restaurant in hotel was kind of expensive so we never ate there.
Very comfortable bed. Rooms are nice. Location to beach is great. Parking cost is $30/night. You can hear every sound through the door.
Great location. Great last minute deal thru Kayak. I will definitely stay again. My room was RIGHT BY THE ELEVATOR... bad move. You hear everythjbg coming in and out. Also, the chef... Well, let's just say the meal I had wSnt great. Actually, it wasn't good either.
The woman at the front counter was extremely helpful and friendly. She immediately saw our daughter who is two and offered to have us a crib sent up immediately. Hotel restaurant server was also excellent. Gave us great service and the food was great. Seemed a little too "uppity" for our family. It always seemed as if someone was looking for a tip. My husband went down to get a luggage cart to take our bags downstairs and the guy wouldn't let him have the cart. Said it was a "liability". I've been to a lot of hotels and always used my own luggage cart. It's not a liability for heavens sake. It just means someone won't get a tip. Also the bed was not very comfortable but that's just a personal opinion. It could be very comfortable to someone else.
Room and view was wonderful! Staff was helpful, and the pool was relaxing. Loved the love music at the pool. Breakfast at the hotel resturant cost us a pretty penny.
Vera¡y good location The service specially for the breakfast was very poor
Friendly staff,clean,close to beach. Nothing negative
Clean, friendly staff Restaurant was very expensive
Great view, location - nice rooms. Bed was way too comfortable!
The staff is friendly and accumulating. Easy access to beach front. Updated lobby and rooms. Near liquor store. Don't worth the $200+ a night rate I paid. It looks and feels like an old Holiday Inn that was renovated. The view from the rooms of the beach is only a half view as the building is blocking the rest. The carpet was stained. The shower had mold on the grout and caulked in areas. The A/C only kicked on when it wanted to. The pool is the size of an above-ground pool. I paid the rate because the reviews and pictures looked appeasing but it turned out to be a front. Also, it is not an adult only hotel; many, many families present and being very loud and obnoxious. 2-star rating. Only stay here if you find a rate for under $100 a night. Very, very disappointed.
The personal are professional and very polite.
NOTHING. EVERYTHING. I would not stay here, they are not accomodating,the staff is rude and inconsiderate. There sheets were terrible, and the room was dirty.
The staff and food quality were excellent. The hotel grounds and facilities spacious and easy. Special kudos to the bar wait staff and bartender... friendly, accommodating, and excellent. Noise from the parking lot activity, the outside hallway and from the airport kept me awake all night.
Parking was $25
A beautiful place and always feels like you are on a luxury vacation. The lobby bar is one of the best hotel bars ever. I am concerned my credit card will be used under someone else's name as my bill I received was incorrect at the end of my stay and had the incorrect t address on the statement... Every time I've been to the hotel the check in is a huge issue and great area of concern... Honestly, limits my likeliness to return due to headache of rooms are never ready (I checked in last time the room wasn't ready until after 6p and this time I checked in at 4p and had to choose a room on a lower floor due to room on the original was not ready).
The staff was awesome, Everyone was very friendly and willing to make our stay memorable. Our balcony was so relaxing after a long flight, we enjoyed looking out at the beautiful garden area.
Everyone was very nice and knowledgeable I liked everything
The pool area was very nice and great location on the water close to the beach I reserved a room with a king size bed. When I arrived I was told there was none available and was given a room with two queen size beds. They seemed smaller than queen and were definitely cheap mattresses. Very uncomfortable. Also the wallpaper was peeling off the walls and there was mold on the walls. Definitely not a 4 star!
Comfort, atmosphere. Staff was friendly, helpful. Outdoor walking from place to place (i.e. room to room, room to pool) Food was not good and not enough a variety. Needs coffee. Laundry facilities not in the building. Wine was way overpriced.
My boyfriend and I flew in from out of town and stayed here this past week for 3 days. Everything was amazing; the front desk was very professional and polite. Room service was great and accommodating. I loved the spa pool and pool side bar. The view of the marina from our room was breath taking. We will definitely be staying here again when we fly in for Christmas.
Pool lounge and pool staff were very friendly and accommodating as was the bellmen. Lots of things tho do for kids. Breakfast menu at Mariners was very overpriced and of little value including drinks. Women's poolside restroom didn't have functioning locks on stalls.
Hotel did not look the same as pictures displayed online. The room smelling like old cigarette smell it wasn't a balcony either
This hotel is showing its years and definately needs an overhaul. I'd say skip it.
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!
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)
The lobby and pool areas were very nice but the rooms were tired and in poor repair He first room had bugs in the restroom so they moved us to a second room. The second room had hair on the sheets. Both rooms needed several items that needed some freshening up. Deep cleaning, touch up paint and general maintainace. The heating and cooling is a problem as well, don't know what can be done but it didn't keep the room very comfortable
Great pool area and room is very nice A little expensive. Paid $ 292 on kayak and hotel was offering room for $ 190.
Closed to the beach Poor customer service and delay in room delivery
Na It smelled like mold. ...the gas was off and there was no way to adjust the temperature in the room it was freezing.
Nothing The rooms were out dated. No comforters. I was freezing all night. The blinds were broken. I couldn't sleep a past 7am when the sun came out because of the suns rays in my eyes. Ridiculously stupid shoes required in lobby rule. It's a beach resort!! Horrid parking situation. Really I have to pay a parking garage $20. Was there not enough land in Florida to create a guest only complimentary parking lot? Also the beach water was plagued by seaweed. I couldn't even swim without being engulfed by it. Check out is also 11am with a strict policy. Overall horrible place. I feel like I was ripped off
On the beach. Dirty - (IN ROOM - dry boogers on bathroom walls, extremely dirty A/C vents and bathroom exhaust, stains on carpets and kitchen ceiling tiles) (IN BUILDING - Stained and falling ceiling tiles around lobby, Hallways smell like stale dirty store) - I did not see any cockroaches on my stay like other customers have stated. I checked for bedbugs as well and did not find any in my room. Staff - A few Rude members. One member was listing and singing to "50 cent - many men" while checking in guest. REAL PROFESIONAL. I was shocked at how loud the music was and how they made it seem like it was ok. Location - Although it is on the beach, this hotel is far from everything. There is nothing around here for families. Maybe 5-6 bars but only 3-4 spots to eat from which the food is not family friendly. One restaurant on google maps didn't even exist and no one knew what I was talking about. The Store - Do not buy the cooked food there unless you are watching the staff make it in front of you. I ordered a pizza. I noticed the girl had a slight cold, she got the premade pizza from the back room, place the pepperoni slices on the pizza, cooked, and cut... All of this WITHOUT washing her hands or wearing gloves. After it was done, I was like NO THANKS, I'll take my money elsewhere. The Room - Outdated. Like a porno from the 80's with the wall to wall mirrors in every room and the ugly flat green carpet. I swear the toilet came from a kids store, it was so small with no tank and a flushing handle I would expect from a public restroom. The A/C in the bedroom didn't work. The kitchen draws and counter top were falling apart. The bedroom closet did not have a pole and hangers to hang clothes. False advertisement - The hotel stated free outdoor parking and a fee for parking in the garage ($18 per night or $22 for valet). There was no free parking anywhere. Apparently, the Parking garage is not owned by the hotel as well as the valet parking. The hotel pool is not owned by the hotel as well (so, the hotel was built around the pool but they don't own it - WTF?) The language Barrier - Some hotel staff members and the stores inside the hotel look at you like you have 3 heads when you talk English to them. Are you serious! If you work at a tourist spot, you better know F-ing English (THIS IS AMERICA!) Hotel Overall - Not what I expected for a "Resort". I have had better service and experience at Econo Lodge and Motel 6. If you add up the parking lot fee's, the daily resort fee's, and your room cost - It would be cheaper to go somewhere else. THIS PLACE IS LIKE A "HALF-WAY HOUSE" FOR HOTELS.
Nothing dirty lobby, room with cockroaches, broken bed, smoke everywhere
The boardwalk and beach. The hotel room was disgusting. It smells like mold throughout the building. Didn't have my reservation upon arrival. They charged me twice for my room taking out almost $600. There is no free parking. You have to pay $18 to park in the public parking garage.
The fact that it was walking distance to the beach was the only plus My boyfriend and I were returning from a cruise and had one night to stay in FL before we returned home the next day. The ocean walk is closed vacant and immediately makes the hotel scary as soon as you walk in. The shops that are there are not tourist friendly, at all. We knew from reviews that the hotel was "dated", which we were completely fine with. Dated is not the word to use, it is filthy. The Windows facing the ocean in our room haven't been windexed in I don't know how long, the doors and walls were filthy from people touching them. I'm not talking a few scuff marks, it looks like they haven't been painted or cleaned in years. AND THIS WAS A RENOVATED ROOM! Our bathtub had hair in it from the previous guests, not to mention the tub is worn, the bathroom mirror has broken glass, the sink leaks everywhere, the space between the vanity and the tub is FILTHY. The baseboards in the hotel were filthy. The vents haven't been dusted or cleaned since the 70's. We didn't even want to take our shoes off to walk around in our own hotel room. We lifted the mattress up to make sure there weren't bugs and there was so much filth under the mattress, the bedskirt hasn't been changed in years. We tried to remain positive, we were only there for one night. But it was just horrible. I can't suggest enough to you not to stay at this hotel, spend a little more and stay down the strip. The front desk staff did not smile once nor were they helpful. All three shift changes were rude. The pool has mold and slime by the drains. We felt dirty just swimming in the pool.
It was by the beach Night staff was absolutely totally rude! The hotel stunk of mildew! Our room was extremely cold with no theromastat! 1/3 elevators worked! I could go into details but I'm not. We will just never stay here again or recommend it. If we didn't book weeks in advance, we would have stayed in the Marriot a couple doors down.
We loved the price and location!! Old hotel but bed was nice and clean and the kitchenette was awesome!! Customer service wasn't excellent, couldn't check in until 4p and we flew in from TX so we had to hang out until then. Old hotel and many of the shops are empty - seems kinda abandoned wheich is ok if you don't like too much traffic.
ABSOLUTELY, NOTHING, FILTHY DISGUSTING FIRE & HEALTH HAZARD,SHOULD BE CONDEMMED ASAP, & NOT BE BOOKED ON THIS SITE!!!! dirty lobby, room with cockroaches, broken bed, smoke everywhere Poorly maintained. Smell was terrible. Room Was dirty on the inside and smells moldly very very disappointed. Also also those unexpected fees no cold water, rude staff fire alarms going off all night and the building was under a fire ordinance they didn't pass inspection. NO WORKING ELEVATOR FOR 3 DAYS Hotel did not feel safe, with a very strong smell of marijuana in our hallway and very loud groups of people at all hours in the hallways waking EVERYONE UP, GOT A SINUS INFECTION, AND OTHER THINGS
Our bathroom shower was stopped up we informed maintenance 3times nothing was done. We got a soda out of the vending machine it tasted flat, look at date it said 7/30/2015. The air didn't work, the hotel smelled old and like mildew, no new linen was given.
The hotel is old, run down. Carpet nasty, was charged to park eighteen dollars a day. No one came to clean up the rooms I complained to the front desk they did nothing. There here was no blanket on the bed when I arrived. The bed was making noise, it was suppose to be an ocean view but the windows was boarded up, dirty and disgusting. I will NEVER go back there again. This was a gift for my moms birthday and it was her worst birthday gift ever.
Location Bit warn, could be cleaner maids do minimum clean
Conveniently located. 3.5 miles from Dania beach, nice large rooms. Room service is quite pushy if you dont let them in every day to clean your room. Breakfast ends way to early, 9 am during the week, 10 am sat and sun. Tv doesnt work well and is very touchy.
We stayed the day before our cruise. Complimentary Shuttle picked up from the airport and for a nominal fee, a shuttle took us to the cruise the next day. The hotel is in walking distance from many restaurants. Great value and convenience. Unfortunately, we were in competition with 8 other cruise lines, so getting picked up from the airport was a bit of a nightmare...One of the hotel Shuttles was out of commission so the operating shuttle was continuously filled up..It took an hour to get to the hotel which was less than 10 minutes away. Advise.....check to see how many cruise ships are sailing on the same day!
Free breakfast and shuttle to the airport Room smelled very musty and front desk said it was because of the humidity. I've stayed at many hotels in Florida without a musty odor in the past.
The breakfast was great but everything else..... I had been traveling for 2 weeks and I pick this location because it had a laundry. I get there and it's broken but when I inquire at the desk they say they did not even know it was broken. They tell me to wait until morning and they will have it fix. Good for me that I did not believe them, cause it still was not fixed by 11 am the next day. So at 12 am I'm looking for a 24 hour laundromat and I ask the guy at front desk for quarters and he gives my family and I attitude. I also called to say I was going to be late to not give my room away. I get there and say sorry we gave your room away and was stuck in a smoking room. The staff then tried to blame me and said you must of booked the smoking room. I kept my cool but as someone who travels for work never again!!!! Also front lobby smells of guest that smoke pot. NO THANKS! Service is not a standard at this hotel.
Airport transfer is unreliable. I waited over an hour for the airport shuttle which did not arrive and had to get a cab to the hotel. And that was 10 am in the morning. Entrance to the hotel was easy to miss since the hotel was partially hidden from there main road.
We stayed at this Best Westin for 2 days because we missed a connecting flight to Myrtle Beach. The hotel is very close to airport with clean rooms, nice spa pool, and breakfast. The staff were all friendly and excellent hospitality.
Great location, close to airport and beaches. Not a lot of frills, but a comfortable bed, decent breakfast, and the staff is awesome. Also not a bad fitness center. Even though the location is great, it's a little difficult to find so if you drive pay attention. Located next to I95 so a little loud out by the pool, but hard to notice unless a really large truck comes through.
The gym and room was very nice. We don't eat pork products and that's what was served each day. They could have added turkey to the menu as well for diversity. The carpet in thefroom was very worn and the bathroom sink was clogged , the water took a very long time to go down the drain.
the service was friendly, room exceeded my expectations was clean and big!!! as soon as i settle in my room front desk called to check everything was ok. I would say I got more that I thought for my money.
Location No kitchen in room
offered shuttle service to the cruise port for $12 per person Very busy hotel on the weekend.
Location and cleanliness and the fact that I could cook and not have to go out and eat. The price.
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.
The best part of the resort/hotel was location. Depending on what building you stay at, the beach was within walking distance. Also, many restaurants and activities weren't far away. We had to use our cell phones to call the front desk, because the speed dial numbers on the hotel phones would ring busy when we call. Also, called for a wake up call, which we never received. Housekeeping would not come or would come in the late afternoon, when we get back from our outings; often times the hallway and under the bed was not cleaned up. When we went to the beach, we were told to raise a flag (which was provided on a pole) when we would like to have bar staff come to see what we need. No one ever came to check on anyone on the beach. The resort fee (according to Delta Vacations) includes 2 beach chairs, 2 bottles of water, 2 signature drinks, 2-2hr bike rental, board games, sand toys, each day. However when asked, I was told the signature drinks were discontinued from the resort fee 2 years ago. Overall, the value for what we paid was not worth it, and do not plan on going back. The pictures from the website are not a good representation of facilities or service. Renovation can only improve appearance.
The pool right on the beach are awesome. You can sit in the pool and watch the TVs at the pool bar. The mermaid show is great and I have seen it about 5 times now. We were not informed that it was under major renovation. The bar in our building didn't open until 5:30. There used to be two bars but one is now closed for renovation. Since there were no vending machines on the hall floors, if you wanted a soda or otherwise you only had one option. Walk out, across the parking lot to a different building (also under renovation) and go to the pool bar. I couldn't even find where breakfast was. If we were just informed of the renovations we would have simply waited a bit to go. I was so dissatisfied we probably wont go back.
View Everything at this hotel is broken, elevators, phones, the Skywalk that takes you from one side to the other. The pool is small and there is only 1 bathroom for everyone, the line was at least half hour long all day. It was faster to walk the 2 blocks, cross traffic and climb the stairs to use the bathroom in your room than wait in line, or walk to the beach, which it seemed mist were doing, and use nature's facilities. They also charge $20 a day to park you car and another $20 for resort fees, I'm not sure where that money goes, since everything is broke and the pool is the almost the smallest I've ever seen at a hotel besides a few motel 8's.
Beach access was nice, but there are better places to stay in the area Once we arrived, we were told we have to pay a huge resort fee. Everything you want to do costs extra. Parking was $35/night - which they don't disclose until you arrive.
Front desk was very kind and helpful. Gym was very nice and clean, but would recommend having antibacterial wipes/spray to clean equipment off after you use. Beach area was beautiful along with pool. Wish you guys had almond milk available in little breakfast area. In the hotel room, it did seem a little dirty. In the hallway down towards the room there was always a "funny" smell in the hallway that lasted the whole time. On the last day, we found a large toenail by bathroom door and was very dingy/dirty was adjoining door to the room next to us.
Nice People Paying for parking across the street $30.00 a day, You are paying to stay there your parking should be free.
My family has stayed in this hotel every year for five years over spring break. We have seen it transition from the Sheraton to B Ocean Resorts. It seems the hotel is less interested in families and more interested in catering to singles. 1. Loud music constantly played in the lobby even at 6:00 when you just want to quietly start your day with coffee and quiet. 2. Called room service and went straight to voice mail. Called again and they hung up. 3. The onsite restaurant, Naked Crab, had limited choices for kids and was very expensive.
Checked in at the B Ocean in Fort Lauderdale beach, the phone in the room wasn't working most of the time, staff said that they would send a tech to fix it, but no one never came. Ordered room service, waited two hours for them to tell me that the menu that was in the room was an outdated menu which they originally brought me when I had to order, cause there was no menu in the room, so it took me about 3 hours to get some dining in my room. And to have this room cleaned, I had to call at least twice to tell them to send someone to clean the room, and when they finally came, some supervisor came up to room 792 with an attitude to tell me that they were busy and that's why it took them so long. Overall, I will never stay at this hotel anymore, and recommended no one to stay here either. Service is extremely bad.
pool and right on the beach under construction. but can't help that
Just one cleaning lady was nice. Construction guys everywhere, noise, dust,smell.all restaurants in hotel closed! Second pool closed!SKYWALK-CLOSED! each time you go across the road with kids.Terrible experience this year.will never stop there again and will never recommend it to my friends!
I booked a room at B Ocean Resort for NYE and the following night. First, I was assigned the wrong room in the wrong tower. The second day, our access card didn't work anymore, because the room was not properly registered as a back-to-back reservation. Second, while we ended up getting a room with lcean view, the sink wasn't properly working. Third, and the worst part about it, B Ocean Resort charger my credit card randomly with bills that I never signed off for. I had about 6 charges for random amounts on my bill, but had only signed one final bill at checkout. Lastly, the food is very expensive. For instance, we ordered one yoghurt as room service for breakfast and the bill, including taxes and tip was $20 (!) For a 4 stars "resort" I would expect way better service and staff, particularky considering their pricing. Billing my card with unauthorized charges is unacceptable!
Great location Pillows, parking, no heating
