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!!!
budgethotel and unfortunately not very clean rooms not clean
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
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!!!!!
Location. Pool. WiFi. Kitchen. Dirty. Needs updating all over.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 location was close to our destination. The fridge & microwave were a great convenience. The hallways smelled like old cigarette smoke.
The staff was professional and courteous
The cleaness... I had to switch rooms from 222 to 227 the A. c wasn't working or the pool wasn't clean other then that everything was great.
Dirty pictures lamps and mirrors were crooked.. ceiling tiles were pushed up.my shower was dirty..said they had WiFi and breakfast. Was a lie Everything
There are no outlets in the rooms. Every outlet is behind a piece of furniture and already full.The continental breakfast is a joke. There was only cereal.
Location and cleanliness and the fact that I could cook and not have to go out and eat. The price.
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 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.
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!
on the beach bar scene
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)
This place is a DUMP !!!!
Comfortable bed, hot shower. Relatively clean room. Lots of ugh lets say lower income folks around, not nasty or anything like that but you definitely get what you pay for here. A solid 2 1/2 star motel.
Customer service Loud music at night
Room and mattress were fine Scary looking people standing around outside late at night on check in. Next morning was nice normal clientele. Breakfast of cereal and toast and juice was disappointing.
Big bed and clean bathroom. The front of the hotel but whatever!
Good location for cheep room. Ac worked well we had the room ice cold in no time. Room smells like smoke. Door was really hard to shut.
The hallways have a strong smell of cigarettes. The bed had a dent in the middle. The furniture was stained. The toilet paper was low. There were roaches in bathroom.
Channel on tv Water licking from roof
Can't beat the location just off expressway and minutes away from downtown Hollywood. Major upgrade to the rooms cable carpeting and overall arrangement Hallway needs new carpeting needs improvement on outside lot. Needs minor details with touch up painting and chair can be updated.
Maids were very nice and kept the place clean No complaints
The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. They get an A+
Location Dirty rooms, spiders, the hallways smelled like marihuana, weird people walking at 3am. Worst place ever!
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
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.
Nothing Sevice was horrible. Waited 1 1/2 hour for some one to come to the front desk. No one ever showed up. Had to go somewhere else. They refused to refund your money. Parking is a nightmare. You have to pay for parking in a lot not owned by hotel, or someone will put a boot on your car. Last option park on the street The phone number listed on the email is wrong. It goes to a fax. So no one answered. Beware cross all t's and dot all i's before you give any money or you just might end up S.O.L. like me in this situation
The room was very clean and the upkeep for such an old hotel was very good. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Very close to the beach and within walking distance of food and drink.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Right near beach, restaurants and boardwalk. Nice staff. Felt safe
Don't like, Never come again. Don't like, Never come again.
It is was fine. It is was fine
It was very quaint and newly remodeled. The bath was small and no place to put the soap or shampoo in the shower but it worked out fine. For a two star hotel, it was a very nice stay
The owners and staff were exemplary. I felt cared for and very welcomed there at the Dolphin. The other hotel guests were also extremely lovely people...which reflects well on the Dolphin owners...they attract quality folks because they are a class act! Nothing. All was good
Location, price, room size, super comfy bed, huge closet.. Loved that it had a kitchen, that just makes everything easier & more economical. Will definitely stay there again! Water didn't get really hot in the shower.. But warm enough to get clean. No other issues what so ever!
Clean and simple. Super friendly staff. The room itself is nothing fancy and has the basics to enjoy the beach and restaurants not far from your doorstep. Great for extended stays! The staff is very friendly and responsive when called, but not always on-site to help if you need something immediately. They forgot to put soap/shampoo in the bathroom and we didn't realize until late at night.
Filthy. No top sheet and sand on the only sheet. Paint peeling, very poorly cleaned. Kitchen faucets backward; left was cold and right was hot. Half a toilet roll when I arrived, ran out on third day with no spare. Thank God for an almost empty box o
clean and old world courtesy very plesent
A great location! Loved having a fridge. There is a bike-share station basically around the corner. I arrived before check-in, and they allowed me to check-in early. I will stay at the Dolphin again! Thin walls, so one could hear the neighbors at times.
