We stayed Easter weekend for Girls Weekend. I contemplated a few other hotels in the area but glad we chose this one after walking around and checking out the other hotels. THE PROS: Overall, very cute property. I would definitely come back or recommend to friends and family. If you are on a budget, this is a great place to...

We stayed for a long weekend, it was in a great location close to the beach and a short walk to all the restaurants on the front. We were in a two bedroomed apartment, the one without the lounge. The beds were comfortable and the room very clean. It's an older style hotel from the outside (a little like a...

The location of Fortuna Hotel can not be beaten, it really is literally across from the beach. The hotel itself is a mediocre small establishment. What makes Fortuna stand out is the staff members, totally professional and nice. I would stay there again. P.S they have really good coffee 🤗

We stayed one night prior to cruising. Good location, just a short walk to Fort Lauderdale beach. A little father walk to restaurants, but it's a nice walk along the beach boardwalk. The room was smaller but had everything you would need. The room had a single cup coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave. The courtyard was clean as well...

Very clean hotel. It's older, but still very nice. Very close to beach and walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Has a pool in the center of the property. Staff was friendly. We would definitely stay again!

The Fortuna is a well run establishment with two pools and comfortable fatboy bean bags and lounge chairs to sprawl out on while sipping drinks. The rooms were cheery and colorful with refrigerators and microwaves. We stocked up on breakfast and lunch supplies by taking a short drive to the local publix. The liquor store is about a half mile...

Stayed here one night prior to boarding a cruise. The overall presentation is what you would expect of a 3 star motel but what really disappointed was the state of the floor in our room - our 2 childrens feet were completely black after 5 minutes of walking around. It was like they had been playing on the road. Also...
