Reviewed 2 April 2016 via mobile

This motel was as expected, clean and tidy but older (no frills). Free wifi was available and staff were friendly. The aircon worked well, but was very noisy. Overall it was a cheap option for a place to sleep! Good variety of restaurants immediately adjacent and over the road - including Starbucks!

I was duly impressed when, after reserving with Booking.com, I received a kind mail from the owner/manager saying that they had the nonsmoking room that I requested in my reservation and it was being held for me. I was less impressed the next day when I drove up. The motel was relatively small and looked old.. In fact it is...

This little motel is a hidden gem along hwy 1. The room was ready for us when we arrived from the airport very early in the day, the owners are very hospitable, the bed is great and the rooms are well cared for and spacious.

We stayed there overnight for $ 98.00 incl tx. This is much money for this only new painted hotel. Because the bed, the furniture and the bath-valves are old! They should have been changed, when remodeling!! But is was one of the cleanest hotels I've ever seen in my whole life! The owner lives on premesis and there are cameras...

The price was reasonable (75$), location is good, the room needs an update (I guess it's from the 70s), but it's very clean, nice shower. The staff is very friendly too. I was in rm 102 (supposedly non-smoking, I smelled smoke though) and the free wifi there was so week that i had to infront of the motel to get...

Staying one night for business seminar. Family owned and helpful. Asked for a king, non smoking and was given suit with full kitchen for same base price. Room was clean, but bath needed work because of possible mold. Looks like work done by family not professionals. Grounds, including small pool completely updated with beautiful landscaping, fence around pool and tile...

The place is clean and the family-owned motel is quaint, but the rooms are way out-dated. The microwave didn't work well and for a motel that came with a kitchenette, there were no pots, pans, or silverware. WHAT???? The location is fantastic but ehh on the motel.. Upgrades are seriously needed (the rooms look like they were decorated in 1972).

We just called into this family run motel on arriving in Lauderdale and were welcomed by a very pleasant owner, I think. He gave us the choice of 2 rooms and the one we chose was large and absolutely fine. The place, as a whole, is slightly dated but spotlessly clean and very pleasant staff everywhere. I would recommend this...

After reading reviews, I decided to try it out. I was relocating back to Fort Lauderdale and needed a place for a few nights. It's not the newest, fanciest, largest room. However, it's clean, comfortable and the best location. Pleasently surprised. Good value as well.

I'm a bicycle tourist, and while Fort Lauderdale isn't as bicycle-friendly as some other places, it isn't bad, especially once you get down by the beaches. This motel is located on Hwy. 1, quite close to one of the main arteries leading to the beach. There are many great restaurants in the immediate area and the Galleria shopping complex is...
