Recently returned from a pre-cruise 3 night stay at the Blue Strawberry. We had a room that was right on the street but never found the traffic noise a problem. The bed was extremely comfortable with good quality linens - we slept well on all 3 nights. The room was very clean with plenty of towels etc. The kitchen had...

Great location nearby the sea. Walkingdistance to groceryshop and parking just outside the hotel. Complete kitchen to prepare the familymeals in. The only thing I can think of is that the refrigerator and the airconditioner where really noisy. Other that that I can really recommend this hotel.

Nothing posh,. Our room was clean. Fresh towels everyday. We stayed here for 4 nights before our cruise. Close to beach, cafes and grocery stores. Felt safe. I would recommend bringing sleeping eye masks as outside lighting does enter the room.

When making the reservation I thought I would try a 60's style motel for two nights after a cruise. Upon arriving we noticed how quaint and clean the property was. We were shown to our room and a few minutes later were offered an unsolicited upgrade to a room with a kitchen which we turned down. Our bathroom had a...

We spent a few days here after a cruise and couldn't be happier. Rooms are super clean and staff bends over backwards to be accommodating. We had a late flight out of FLL and we were able to use the room until early evening for a nominal fee. We're booked for our Christmas trip here already!

This retro motel is nothing fancy and parking is limited. We stayed here for two nights before our cruise last week. The rooms need some updating however; are very clean. The location is marvelous.

First, the information given for this hotel states that the office is open until 7 each night. That is wrong. When we arrived at 6:15 pm, we were greeted by a locked door and a notice on the window for us to call a certain number upon arrival. The gentleman who answered guided us on a hunt around the hotel...

We stayed here both pre and post cruise the last 2 weekends (3/10/17 & 3/18/17). This is a true beach hotel. It's not new, modern, or super fancy, but it is very clean. I could tell that management had tried to make updates and improvements in the decor. Both management and guests were very nice and engaging. The hotel is...

It's centrally located to everything...beach, restaurants, liquor store, drug stores etc. are all a short walk away.
