Our arrival at the hotel was after the reception was closed (it closes 07:00 p.m.). We were contacted by the hotel administrator the day before arrival, and was given a good description of how to gain access to the room. This was informative and gave us a a safe feeling. We stayed in room 406, witch was a room of... More

This place is awesome. Rooms are bright and very clean. The staff is great very helpful. Can say enough about this place. I would say there in a heartbeat! The only downside to snooze is the parking. It's a little tight if you have a larger vehicle but I'm sure with a little manoeuvring you can find a spot.

Thank you for your 5 star review! We are honored that you loved your stay at the hotel. You are correct that parking is best for compact cars. Although our lot can't fit extended cab trucks or Escalades, we do find most cars have no issue. We have a handful of spaces that are larger and we will gladly direct... More

My three sons and I stayed here for six hours during a layover between airport and cruiseport. Although nothing fancy about the place it is clean and well maintained. Also in a perfect location right across the main street from the beach, also a very short walk to numerous shops and dining spots. I highly recommend it for anyone looking... More

We are glad you stayed with us on your recent layover. Since we are on the beach and do our best to price below other oceanfront hotels, we are great for folks that want to spend the day getting in one last beach visit before a late flight! Our slogan is "Modern - Essential - Affordable" Although our property is... More

We stayed at Snooze in February and really enjoyed the location, rooms and service.

We loved our stay at snooze! We went on a cruise and didn't want to head right back to the chill of Vermont, so booked this hotel. What a find!

Wonderful small hotel with just what you need. Location was close to everything without being in the middle of it all. The staff is so cool and helpful. The parking was being redone while we stayed and the staff did everything to ease the discomfort.

When trying to choose a place to stay in Fort Lauderdale, it's hard to find the right combination of comfort, cleanliness, a caring staff, beach-front location, Starbucks practically next door, and close to night life.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Snooze is a modern take on the essentials needed for your home away from home. We believe traveling in style should be affordable without any hidden costs - just pay your room rate plus tax and that's it! We offer a clean, comfortable and modern room, plus add free parking, wifi, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. Keep in mind we offer the essentials so...No pool, no 24 hr service, no phones, no spa, no bell boy, no valet and no chocolates on your pillows. Why spend the extra money on extras you don't need? We are the last oceanfront Ft. Lauderdale hotel left with less than 20 rooms. There are plenty of "big box" branded hotels out there and we are proud we are not one of them. Snooze is located directly accross the street from Fort Lauderdale Beach next to the Westin and Ritz Carlton hotels. Direct Ocean View, Kitchenette and Hotel Rooms are available at the property. The airport (7 miles), cruise terminal (5 miles) and convention center (5 miles) are just minutes away. Free Wi-Fi and beach chairs and towels. Free parking as long as it is not an over-sized vehicle. Our check-in age is 25 and older. ... more   less
