Location, pools, new rooms This new hotel takes itself a too seriously for "Pompano Beach" (not near Lauderdale -I can say this because I live here) Valet-only for $25 -and they lost my car twice. One guy even questioned if I was "sure" it wasn't my gold SUV -I said I'm sure I don't own it. I've been recently to large world-class hotels that have better parking systems. Hotdogs and burgers by pool for $16 (potato chips) would be passable if it was the Ritz or Vegas -but again this is Pompano Beach. We brought a local pizza box by the pool and was told we couldn't eat it outside -then I told the guy it was their own front desk that recommended the place. Again this is POMPANO -a b-level suburb of Lauderdale. Pretty though, just trying to be something else...
The staff was unusually nice and helpful. From the maid, front desk, servers to pool staff...truly everyone we ran into met us with a big smile and willingness to help. The rooms and pool bathrooms were very clean. Beach is just a few steps from the pool and was beautiful. We will return. I am cheap and spoiled by business travel but I was a bit annoyed that they didn't offer any Elite benefits - not even free coffee. Most hotels offer free coffee in the morning even for just a few hours. The breakfast buffet was a pricey $25/per for just the basic offering. Food quality on the other hand was great.
Hi close it was to everything. Great value and wonderful service Nothing
The location is prime and the beach access and water front facilities are so nice. Great staff and good sized rooms. No complaints.
We loved the balcony and ocean view. The room was nice, comfortable, and clean. The cabanas/beach chairs were convenient.
Location, location, location- beautiful property directly on beach. Outdoor restaurant overlooking the ocean was beautiful. Food was okay and pricey. Room was not well cleaned. No dressing mirrors in room other than in bathroom.
The outdoor restaurant with a view of ocean while eating. Good food The room was small. The lounge chairs by the pool were wicker and very uncomfortable
The pool areas, the restaurant overlooking the beach, the beach access. The food at the restaurant was quite good.
we love it and we will be booking again from you thanks again
The first room a Euro room was Ok but not what I wanted with no view at all. The second room with a sea view overlooked the pool which was a problem from noise at times as there is a pool side bar. Many guests ignored the signs about night swimming too. Overall it is a pleasant place to stay and is right on a beautiful beach. The staff are excellent too. The internet is diabolically slow and inadequate. You will either be frustrated by it's inadequacy or end up in reception. The internet facility is also a little aggressive in blocking things you might noramlly use.
Best resort I have been to in decades. Won't need to go anywhere else when in Florida. Reasonably priced and is a true 5-star resort. Best kept secret in Fort Lauderdale region. I can't wait to go back! Shower was horrible.
Location was convenient, the hammocks on the beach were comfortable, the pool was crystal clean, good place to relax Parking was tight - but free - "direct view of the ocean" was not so direct - noise level from slamming doors went on into the wee hours of the morn
The staff, the lobby, breakfast was excellent every day and the location and parking were convenient. Staff were friendly and helpful. And honest; I left my jewelry and was called so I could retrieve it. I would recommend it and stay again if they upgrade their rooms. The room. It was dull, sheets were worn and had holes; the towels were small and very rough; there was only one lamp; bathroom was old and worn; showerhead was broken; tub didn't drain; remote for TV didn't work and there was only one chair on the terrace and we asked every day for another one. no towels at pool; pool staff not around.
It was a nice hotel, very clean. The service in the dining room and outside dining area was very much on island time. If you are not on a schedule then it would be fine.
The children loved the graduated pool with the slide. the adults loved the nearby hot tub.
How large the room actually was.....It was really good value for money.... My husband and I were very pleased with the facilities and would love to come back there again. The staff at the Concierge desk were actually much more receptive and friendlier than the front desk staff.
Immaculate grounds! Peaceful. Huge spacious rooms. Large Showers/bathrooms. 3 tv'S. Full MODern kitchen including dishwasher. Washer & Dryer. Swimming pools with surrounding Palm trees. Friendly Guests. Free Parking. Grocery Store & Walmart close by. Great hotel...Only thing we didn't like was the bedding sheets were HARD/stiff.The sheets felt like they had been bleached, and ironed stiffed.
Fantastic room, clean, big with a very well equiped kitchinette They are absolutely tough on late checkouts. Despite being with low occupation on a week day, they'd charge $ 35 per hour for late checkout after 10 AM - a very unpleasant tough position by management, with no exceptions.
Accomodations were top-notch
almost everything the missing of the wifi
The room was spacious & comfortable - very nice!
Very nice and clean room with good service.
I liked the design and overall ambiance of the room. The staff was friendly and provided great customer service. We had to call maintenance to adjust the air conditioning because only the fan was blowing. Also, one of the toilets clogged and overflew.
- Only "glitch" was that, when checking in, the front desk said that my business debit card was declined....twice. However: • There was 60x more funds in the account than was needed • I called the Bank and they had no record of even any attempts and • I immediately used that same card at the hotel restaurant Unfortunately, I was forced to use my personal credit card
setting no breakfast before 7 am
Staff was friendly A/C did not work and carpets were dirty
It was a great hotel. The rooms were updated and comfortable. Will highly recommend. Nothing
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 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.
Ants in room, being charged for a 23 oz draft but only getting a 16 oz glass.
The proximity to port Everglades is convenient. When I arrived, I was ignored for 20 minutes just standing at the counter while 2 staff members were having a conversation. The lobby and hallways were filthy and smelled terribly. when I asked about the smell a staff member replied "that's just how it smells". While checking in online, I requested a high floor room with a marina view. what they gave me was a first floor room and the "beautiful marina view" was obstructed by overgrown and unkept vegetation, so overgrown that I couldn't get any sunlight into the room. The staff was both incredibly unfriendly and unhelpful. I called down 3 times on my first day to request extra pillows, they told me all 3 times the pillows were on the way. Nothing was ever delivered to the room. There was a large gathering of water underneath the television when I got into the room, when I asked about this they told me they would "look into it" This was without a doubt the worst stay I've ever had at a Hilton property. I would've stayed at a motel 6 and paid a fraction of the price If I knew it was going to be this terrible.
Intercoastal view with a big tree blocking from seing anything
Great location, comfortable room Hallways and bathrooms were not clean to Hilton standards
Shower did not work in my room. I let the front desk know upon checkout and they did not offer any discount for my inconvenience. I had to ask them what they could do for me, and after some haggling with them, they gave me free parking for the night. Will not stay at this hotel ever again.
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 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 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!
Beautiful hotel and pool. Great staff Got to the hotel late Sunday night. Not much to do at the hotel during the week.
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!
Our suite was very nice. Really enjoyed the comfort. The air smelled like cologne-covering smoke, but it didn't.
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.
Nice hotel with a good entertainment Service when we left the room our plane late, they din't help us (only for money) with a shower before we going. We must too the toilet in the casino for other close.
location to sun life stadium staff was rude and room check-in is disfunctional. room should have been ready much sooner than it was.
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!!!
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.
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
Very comfortable bed. Rooms are nice. Location to beach is great. Parking cost is $30/night. You can hear every sound through the door.
Vera¡y good location The service specially for the breakfast was very poor
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.
Great view, location - nice rooms. Bed was way too comfortable!
The personal are professional and very polite.
Friendly staff,clean,close to beach. Nothing negative
Rooms are stylish, well concepted and executed. Baths and beds and interior design is well done. Rooms have great views and are quiet. This hotel and the W are the two best hotels in Fort Lauderdale and this is a great value. Close to restaurants and the beach. Slight access issues, but once you've stayed there you figure it out and its fine, the location offsets any access challenges.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Parking was $25
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.
Very clean room Pool very cloudy
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!
Hotel did not look the same as pictures displayed online. The room smelling like old cigarette smell it wasn't a balcony either
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).
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.
Everyone was very nice and knowledgeable I liked everything
This hotel is showing its years and definately needs an overhaul. I'd say skip it.
The property is in a sorry state, run down, depressing. The pardon our appearance signs do not forgive the obvious neglect. The staff acts like they know it too. Stay away.
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.
Worst cell and internet reception
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.
Pretty location and the facilities are nice. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff and operations were a hot mess. Ownership has changed and it was as if every employee there was on their last day of work. The checkin was a mess, the billing was wrong three times, the beach was nearly impossible to get help with chairs etc. the place is on a steady decline. Find somewhere else to stay for that kind of money unless they get their act together. We recommend the Palms in Miami beach! Same price but 1000% better on customer service and style.
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.
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.
Nice people and when things weren't right they made it right.
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!
Excellent pool bar service! Rivals sports bar service on both visits was BRUTAL! Stay at the other bars on property or go somewhere else. You will be glad you did.
They aré remodeling all the hotel, so all services and features are not available
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.
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
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.
Great pool and beach! Undergoing extensive renovations without being warned when booked the hotel.
The staff was terrific and welcoming, the renovatied rooms were lovely, the pool is amazing We didn't care for the onsite restaurants. However the wreck was fun and we enjoyed the mermaid show.
pool and right on the beach under construction. but can't help that
Nice People Paying for parking across the street $30.00 a day, You are paying to stay there your parking should be free.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Location Staff from the pool really rude open more time the pool
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
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
I absolutely loves this place. Great location, friendly staff, amazing food. And the beds were xtremely comfortable. Parking was a bit expensive. $30/night
I'm surprised there wasn't a pay-toilet! Extra for everything.
Located on beach near Birch Park. Kayaks, paddle boards, lounge chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc available on beach for guests. Valets, check in folks, & staff in general excellent. Rooms nice with good layout and generally quiet. Maid service okay- did not clean our room one day, even tho gone during mid day for about 3.5 hours- not really a biggie as rooms well supplied except for coffee. Saw young, middle aged, older, and family's with small children- EVERYBODY looked like having a good time. Two things- one morning fire alarm system tested for about an hour. Very loud speaker- wonder why cannot check b/t check in/checkout vs mid morning. Maybe fire dept controls and hotel does not have a choice. Other thing is somewhat trivial- hotel has very limited TV channels; missed The Walking Dead:( But wife could watch Oscars on other TV. Having 2 TVs a plus, even tho channel access limited.
Beautiful ,quaint ,romantic hotel on the beach. Nostalgic luxury. Our new go to vacation Resort! Bathroom could use some attention to the grout. Little mold here and there. Overall still an excellent place to stay.
Our room was spacious and the view was gorgeous! The balcony off our room and on the back of the resort was great. We really enjoyed eating and having a few drinks out there. The resort's beach was very nice and the guys that worked the beach stand were very attentive. All of the staff were very friendly as well. We had a great time! The bar closes at 11:30pm, which seemed kind of earlier. We were there at close Saturday night and there was at least 30 people in there still wanting to stay at close.
The rooms are a bit dates but beautiful, and the location, staff and amenities more than make up for it! Nothing
location was good relative to activities. covered parking gargage. staff was very cordial, friendly, well trained. ease of getting around the hotel grounds, garage, etc. furnishings were adequate, as were kitchen items. the lighting in our room was terrible. we thought of opening the refrigerator door for more light. we thought lights in Europe were weak until we were in this room. also, the light in the bathroom always started the exhaust fan which sounded like an airplane overhead.
Excellent staff. Very well managed exterior and interior. Lighting in the rooms. Not enough.
The staff, especially the front desk staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms wer spacious and beautiful.
We enjoyed the two-bedroom condo, next to the beach. Would have like to have a safe box in the condo. And chairs available on the beach.
Liked everything about this place. Great location, friendly people, clean facilities. Great view from room. I asked for a decent view when I arrived and it was accommodated. They have BBQ grills for the guest to use. I was able to put stuff on the grill and swim while I waited on food to get done. Didn't have to buy any dishes. They have plates, cups, forks, spoons, knifes, pots, pans, bowls, grill tongs, they thought of everything! I'll definitely stay here again. Also, I never write reviews but i felt this was worth the time. No one came and cleaned my room everyday but I'm also an adult, so I know how to maintain livable conditions. Also they have everything you would need to clean up after yourself in the rooms. Really enjoyed my stay.
Nice property in a good location with excellent staff at a very reasonable price! I would definitely stay there again. Would be great for extended stays due to full kitchen and dining table in the room.
Very nice unit!
The staff were really excellent, always friendly and genuinely pleased to help. They made it a pleasure stay at the Santa Barbara. The facilities actually at the Santa Barbara are quite limited. However, this is made clear beforehand and, what there is, is good quality. Anything else is readily available at sister resorts or in the local area.
Clean comfortable and quiet. Rooms well maintained and current. Close to beach and lots of stuff to do, land and sea. On site food snack bar was limited, but sister Wyndham resort across the street has a better food vendor and a full bar.
the 1 bedroom condo was so big and comfortable. the corner room had an amazing balcony. this is a fabulous resort. it would be nice to have a bigger bathroom
I enjoyed my stay here. I would reccomend staying poolside view because there are train tracks very close and can be very loud. For all the bad reviews out there I believe that was long ago and they are working hard to revive their image. The mattresses were brand new, the staff was friendly and if you're looking for something cheaper and looking to drive to the beach.. the beach is only 10-15 min away depending on the beach you want to go to. I highly reccomend this for young adults, families not looking to spend way too much.. and it's great if you're not looking to be in the hotel too much. Breakfast is not included but that makes sense for the price you're paying. There is a resteraunt inside the hotel that we did not visit, but it looked nice. Not bad at all and highly reccomend!
How close it was to where I was traveling On the reservation I put 4 guests.. tell me why in the room they only gave me 2 towels and linen for 2 guests.. when I notified front desk they took nearly an hour and a half to deliver the new items requested.
Nothing. I got my refund. The staff understood why. We left after getting to the room. Mold on the walls. Hand smeared something on another wall. Pics look nothing like the place. I'm pretty sure half of the hotel is a homeless shelter. Had a man follow us to our room and made us feel very uncomfortable. The staff was nice and seemed to understand the kind of customers who stay/live there.
Directions were correct. Hotel is being remolded, bugs everywhere, no fridge in room, creepy people all around, security not at all, smelled horrible, paid online, still was charged at the hotel, elevators didn't work.
Front desk staff were super friendly and informative. The shower was hot and powerful. Only about 5 miles from beach and fishing pier. Well...... We walked in and the headboard had fallen off the wall it was mounted to previously. They made no attempt to try to even straighten the headboard before putting us in the room. Also the room was filthy. The toilet had pee in it from the previous rental. The room had a broken lamp. Oh and did I mention that my 7 year old found a half burned marijuana joint on the counter from the previous renter. "What is this on the counter daddy?". I don't think the room was cleaned between the previous renter and us. Good luck if you choose this motel. Hopefully you have better luck than we did. It is a 2 star at best but really a 1 star motel. No way it's even close to the 3 stars advertised.
Cleanliness comfort Wifi , train noise
One of the staff members, Andrew, were great. The restaurant in the hotel was amazing. Housekeeping was lazy and didn't clean, even after asking multiple times. Majority of staff were inattentive, WiFi was always out, the rooms had weird smell, and the elevator remained out of order my entire stay. No breakfast also.
Nothing. When we walked in. The front was under construction which was fine; however, we were informed that one of the elevators was working off and on so to avoid it. We took the "working" elevator up which had a musty aroma and walked to our room which did not have correct sign to guide us there. When we finally found it, the room was humid. We walked in and then ok our shoes off and realized immediately why. The a/c unit was leaking all over the carpet. At that point, we decided to leave. Got a refund and left.
The staff was friendly and very courteous N/A
The room was nice and clean with all the amenities. We were given a room on the fifth floor where the elevator was broken. We cannot climb five flights of stairs. My husband had bad chest pains and I have COPD and a bad back. Our son had to get us both eyes water immediately as we were suffering from climbing five flights of stairs to a room with not a good view.
It was a decent room for the price. Staff was rude. I had a man come and try to tell me to go back inside my hotel room. Kinda dirty
The location, walking distance to restaurants and bus stop Poor consumer service Elevator was bad Wifi wouldn't connect
The hotel was very nice. Very attractive. The staff was extremely rude.
It was clean and friendly staff It was clean and staff was friendly
One of the easiest check-ins I have ever had.. Friendly staff and beautiful room. There was hardly any I disliked regarding my stay... Maybe more premium cable TV channels?
Nice pool area on a lagoon even if there is no beach. But not necessarily a kid pool. No slide but nice lounge areas. Love that parking is so convenient and no extra cost! Friendly staff with prompt response. Good location off I-95 even though it is in a business-like park area. Large and comfortable rooms. Can't say I have anything negative.
Very clean great valuee
Good wifi Great place near 95. The wifi is good and the staff was friendly. The king size bed was comfortable. The restaurant was nice but not crowded. The business center needs an upgrade. Overall it was very good!
Bed wasn't confutable. Ac wasnt good.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and we really enjoyed the pool.
Typically we love Westin hotels. This hotel should not be allowed to carry that name. The first issue was that the hotel was dirty. Not just our room but all of it. Elevators were slow and old. Lobey was not clean. The pool was nice but the health club was dirty. The hot tub was broken. The restarunt was way over priced for quality of food. We were very disappointed.
It was just lovely
The hotel was beautiful just needs a few upgrades. I lived the pool area and the decor of the hotel. The hotel was beautiful just needs a few upgrades carpets and curtains were dirty, the elevators need some visual work.
Everything about this place was very nice. Beds comfortable clean and spacious room and friendly staff. Nothing
The room and the pool 24hrs was great The person in the front desk during the morning shift. Poor manners, horrible service, rude and not friendly.
I loved the modern up to date look of the rooms and they were clean. The pool was open and clean as well.Staff was super nice I didnt like how it shows on the map before booking that its right on the ocean but its actually not. You have to walk about a mile to get to the public access for the beach or drive and pay to park.
Great location. Nice room. I am happy for big refrigerator. Thsnk you, I had good one night. I miss breakfast there.
We had a jaccuzzi in our honeymoon suite. The room was clean and smelled fresh. The staff was very friendly and we could use all of the 4 pool areas.
Room was well done inside. Good proximity to grocery store. Outside bar was very popular Location wasn't close to any sights/attractions. Wasn't clear how to access beach. Looked more like a motel outside.
No beach access
Not enough parking.
Hotel was great, as noted by another reviewer, the shower was cold, but we found that the dial was backwards (hot was cold and cold was hot). Great hotel though, comfortable and clean.
This is really a hotel. It's an old hospital that's now owned and operated by some sort of religious organization. It was very weird lots of rules and strange keys to gain access to the room. I did not feel secure.
Was very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. N/A
Nice hotel.....having a car is a must have deal. Absolutely nothing in walking distance Great staff....very courteous and helpful Carpet a bit dirty, sink was cracked. Right off I-95. Minimal breakfast.
staff pleasent...clean room....quite the bath water in our room was cold...could use some more lighting...kind of dark and dreary....window curtain did not close....not very inviting overall
big rooms clean affordable slow internet poor breakfast
Spacious room, safe building, cleaniness! nothing
Friendly Service. This is a dormitory in an office building that has some rooms for rent. Old furniture and beds. Very odd vibe about the whole place. NO amenities one would expect at even the most basic hotel. For those on a budget at half the price it might be worth the stay, but otherwise, look elsewhere.
The air conditioner worked great! Hummed all night and never turned off. Perfect for keeping you nice and cozy. The room was quiet. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The staff was very friendly and were very accommodating. Parking was easy and the hotel is close to the expressway. The room was outdated. The light in the bathroom barely worked and was practically unusable (they did offer to switch my room, but I was too tired and just wanted to get to sleep). The carpets were stained and dingy. The furniture was pretty banged up and looked like they picked up some pieces from a garage sale. This "hotel" used to be a hospital and still maintains that look and feel. Had I needed to stay more than one night, I may have passed. The no alcohol rules seem a bit odd for ANY hotel and to change a guest $200+ for evidence of alcohol consumption is rather steep. This appears to be a religiously ran facility.
Stuff were helpful and friendly We did not aware of that it is a renovated hospital, bed was broken
Good value if staying in the area for a night. Not much around the area, more industrial. A casino is close by, but not much else. Not a family site as there is not much to this place, but a place to sleep. Rooms need to be cleaned more thoroughly. I know most places do not clean the bed covers frequently. One of the beds in our room had stains on them that were quite visible.
Very basic furnishings. Didn't at all feel like a hotel. Also: We returned from our hotel stay. We had pre-paid for this hotel stay. Unfortunately, the hotel also just charged to our credit card the full amount of our stay. We contacted the hotel and hopefully this will be refunded.
the staff was very helpful to my special needs. a little to far away if you are going to miami beach
Every visit excellent food!
Thomas was wonderful at the front desk. Since they could not find our reservation.
They appeared to be doing some construction, but it was noisy and the overall facility seemed very worn in a little tired looking
The cottage I rented was clean and welcoming. The owner and staff were anxious to make me feel at home and comfortable. The accommodations are not palatial, but if you are interested in neat and well-kept rooms, Cottages by the Ocean will more than satisfy you needs.
Where do I start. I did a job in Coral Springs and was there from August 1, 2007 until November 17, 2007 and these Cottages were really too good to be true. They are just like the pictures. I was undecided being 12 miles from the job but thank God x asked me where would I rather go after work, to a hotel room or to a Cottage 1 1/2 blocks off the beach? So I chose the Cottage and it was by far the best decision I have made in all of my travels. x was my first contact there and I thought that she would be the best person there. Well to my surprise everyone from Elaine to the grounds keepers and office personal were so nice and very personable. If I had any concern with the Cottage I was staying in all I had to do was call or email them and they would be out no later than the very next day. They really made me feel like family and that meant a lot to me, being 1400 miles from home. It was a very quiet neighbor other than listening to people enjoying themselves. My 2 older boys came down w...
We now live in Pompano Beach but only have a two bedroom condo and use one of the bedrooms as an office, so we need a nice place for our friends from 'up north' to stay when they come to visit. These places are perfect. They are roomy one bedroom and studios with kitchens and even laundry facilties with spotless, nautical furnishings including everything you need for the beach. Our friends can visit us but have their own place, complete with a yard and front porch and all the comforts of home. It gives them--and us--some space and makes visits less hectic and more fun. Everyone we've had stay at these properties loves them and would book them even if they weren't here visiting us. For the cost of a hotel room, our friends have their own 'Cottage by the Ocean' with more space and facilities than they'd get in a hotel--at about half the price. Works perfectly for us and for our friends. We can't say enough good things about this place.
Great location - close to the beach and yet off the road in a quiet neighborhood. Wanted a relaxing week in the sun and Cottages delivered 100%. (The weather, not so much-oh well). Our unit was very clean and well-kept; nautical decor, thick towels, nice kitchen. If the weather had been better, we would have used the patio &/or BBQ grill. So very nice to return to after walking the beach or surrounding area. If you want cozy romance, this is it!! As previous poster said, a hidden gem. Very happy to have found it. Would return tomorrow if we could.
My wife and I spent one week at the Cottage by the Ocean and couldn't be more pleased by everything. I chose this place mainly because of our budget and, personally, did not expect much of it. Just a place to sleep and that was all. But I have to admit, and I am difficult to please, that I was impressed by this ''little'' place. Very clean, the main room is very spacious and the cottage is equipped with everything.You name it, there it is. From Microwave oven to coffee maker, pail and spade for sand castles, even beach towels were provided. Location ? Ideal ! 1 1/2 block from the beach. Walgreens and a few restaurants are at a walking distance. Despite this, it was very quiet, put aside the few Cessna flying low due to Pompano Airstrip a couple miles up Route 1. For us it was perfect. Nestled between the Beach and the Intracoastal Waterway, it is a perfect place to relax. We rented a car at Fort Lauderdale Airport (25 minute trip via Rte 1) and could park right in front of the Cottage ...
We've stayed at Cottages for two weeks and really enjoyed it. Well-equipped kitchen, beach chairs, very close to the beach, fast wireless internet, huge bed. Was really nice. Added benefit is a porch with table and chairs and BBQ. We enjoyed our coffee there. It had anti-mosquito net so it was great to sit there. There was Publix and Wallmart close. We had a nice trip to Palm Beach. I would definitely recommend it.
Location; felt safe as a lone traveler. Friendly staff. Excellent housekeeping staff. No in room coffee maker.
Bathrooms were good and room standards were very acceptable Restaurant seemed a bit Galban hearted and lacked sole - being picky but bar AC was way too cold
