I absolutely loves this place. Great location, friendly staff, amazing food. And the beds were xtremely comfortable. Parking was a bit expensive. $30/night
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
I'm surprised there wasn't a pay-toilet! Extra for everything.
budgethotel and unfortunately not very clean rooms not clean
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
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.
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
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!!!!!
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.
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
Location. Pool. WiFi. Kitchen. Dirty. Needs updating all over.
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!!!
location hotel room; refrigerator sitting on chair with a phone book under the refrigerator to keep it level.
I like this hotel. The location is excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The AC needs to be replaced. It is too loud and weak.
Loved the room and price. Grill located on beach was excellent with a variety of foods.
Very accomodating and friendly staff....clean, quiet, right on the beach, priced right. Upgraded to a suite. Cafe/bar has not much to offer....just a tiny place, light food, no one ever there!
Staff was impressive in their willingness to assist. Facilities were remarkably clean and well kept up. Room was spacious, clean, in good repair and comfortable. The construction/rehab work on several units worked against the overall serenity of the hotel. Not much that could be done, but the balcony was pretty narrow (more than expected from the online photos).
the sight from the room over the atlantic poor and bad furnished room
Great location, nice beach. Nice room with a terrasse directly too the beach. Helpful and friendly staff. The pool was a little dirty - but our kids didn´t mind.
Excellent location, extremely friendly staff, nice room.
Very well furnished and spotlessly clean. Hotel sits on the beach and the room looked directly on to the immaculate beach and sea. Hotel provided towels, beds and umbrellas for the beach. No.
Why would I use offensive language? The location on the beach was fantastic. The restaurant was reasonably priced and the service was very personal and relaxed. I note that this might not suit everybody, but I liked it as I was there to relax. A little far from fort lauderdale downtown. No accurate local area map to refer to. It would have been good to have a map that showed transport and local attractions. The hotel is a little old, but that becomes part of its character after a few nights.
first time I stayed I was impressed. for a hostel it was clean and quiet. was not full then so only another woman and I shared the 6 bed room. next time it was crowded and I noticed the bathroom being used was an issue. but also the caliber of guests was not enjoyable. especially one who acted crazy and seemed to need her own room instead of yelling at me. I was really upset by her and maybe should have complained. also it was late at night and I was tired. quiet hours were ignored. lights were on in the room very late. under normal circumstances it could be nice but I felt abused.
