- All Inclusive Features
Stayed here for one night before driving up to Clearwater..Reasonable priced rooms although could do with updating.Nice location & straight onto the beach from the hotel.Staff pleasant & helpful..Only thing I didn't like was the valet parking.Having to handover keys to car & they close from about 23:00 until 06:00...I wanted to leave early for my drive but had to wait until 06:00
Here for a few days , to check our condo after the hurricane Irma .Great location , right on the beach and beautiful lobby and facilities.The breakfast service is very skimpy and slow . Low on staff probably and slow filling my upOn coffee , tables not set , u have to find the waiter to give u silverware and napkins !Our room is nice with a king size bed . But the bathroom shower is in the small bathtub. Not enough towels , wasn't a floor mat in the bathroom till we asked for it !And one garbage can in the room/ we asked for another one for the washroom.Otherwise everything is fine ! One elevator is working / because of hurricane and preserving electricity.They charge $18 a day for parking !
My family and I stayed at this hotel 3 years ago and it was a great experience. Unfortunately, our visit last August will be the second and last one. This hotel is located in one of the best spots in F. Lauderdale; on the beach, walking distance to Lauderdale by the sea ,a mini-shopping center across the street, lovely pool on the beach, great parking lot, etc. However, my impression is that they could not care less about guests now and there is no improvement, update or renovation planned. To be more specific, the big big problem is not only the size of rooms and bathrooms but mainly, the dampness of the rooms. As soon as we walked into our rooms, the carpets were wet and the dampness could be smelled and seen! If you were barefoot, your feet turned wet after a short while. The furniture is old and it smells old and wet as well. We requested a room change. We had another room with new furniture but with the same damp conditions. You have free chairs and umbrellas around the pool but have to pay to use them on the beach to an outside vendor. By the way, don't dream to relax on the beach after 5 PM because the vendor will take the chairs and umbrellas away!!! The restaurant is pricey and the food is just "eatable". To give you an example, one solo expresso that costs $1.87 at Starbucks (2 blocks away), it is $ 5 in the hotel restaurant. Apart from this, the guy who serves the restaurant makes you feel that he is doing you a favor by serving your table! Long story short: if management does not plan to take action, this hotel will turn into a beach front cheap motel soon.
We booked three rooms for a 2-night stop-over in Fort Lauderdale. We were looking for a cheap deal so grabbed the c.£100 a night rate "including breakfast" on Booking.com and were buoyed by the great reviews.The parking valet is very efficient and pleasant and the check-in process unfussy and polite. What lets this place down is the muddled (junk shop) furniture and the awful accommodation. Our rooms were very small, damp and smelly. All our clothes quickly became tainted with the smell of mildew. The air con units in all the rooms were exceptionally loud, so much so that they had to be turned off at night (which, at 100 degrees in August is very unpleasant). The bathrooms are tiny with lots of flaws.All the staff were pleasant and they seem to be working very hard to make up for the poor state in the fabric of the building.In essence this hotel needs a major overhaul to bring it up to scratch. The "free" breakfast was actually non-existent and we didn't see a single guest having breakfast or dinner at the hotel during our time there.I wouldn't recommend it for young families, its clearly a hotel for spring breakers and has set its stall out accordingly.
My wife and I had a very poor experience at the Ocean Sky Resort and Hotel. We were sold on a 4 star hotel and resort and upon seeing the room, we were sorely disappointed. The king, partial ocean view room was horrible, incredibly outdated, had a stench of acetone and appeared seedy. The room appeared to have several mold spores and was an utter disappointment. The sheets were yellowed and stained and we honestly didn't feel comfortable sleeping there. When we left the room and checked out, the front desk agent offered to show us other rooms however our logic was if you allow one room to appear that way, then surely the rest couldn't be much better. We did explain the dilapidated condition the room was in - as our reason for not wanting to explore other rooms. She did advise us that we most likely would not be receiving a refund to which we said we would take it up with Southwest Hotels who cited this as a 4 star which it honestly could not be. All in all, My wife and I just didn’t feel comfortable sleeping here, it was not relaxing, inviting nor comfortable. In my short time here, I could not - in good conscience - recommend someone to sleep here.
