We stayed here for one day/night in early December. The manager was helpful and check in was quick and easy. We had a large ground floor room which was basic but very clean. It contained a large fridge/freezer, iron, hairdryer, tv, microwave and plenty of hanging/drawer space. The furniture is old and dated but serves its purpose. The motel has...

We stayed here after landing late at Fort Lauderdale Airport. Late night check in was ok. We booked two rooms. Whilst the rooms were adequate I wouldn't have wanted to stay more than one night. To be fair the rooms were reasonably cheap, however they were shabby and dated with furnishing that appeared to be thrown together and of fairly...

While the location of the blue strawberry is better than great, with beach, restaurants, bars, cvs, etc all within a 2-3minute walk it is probably the best jumping off point for your vacation. And uber is a click away! And they have 2 pools with plenty of chairs!! Although the property is dated it has great charm and again it...

We spent four days at this hotel in October 2016. The price was right, the rooms were clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had enjoyable stay except for a minor disturbance , by one drunken couple. We reported it to the manager. He took care of the problem. We would stay there again.
