Hostess Alba is such a wonderful person, helpful and kind. The Blue Strwberry is a great place to stay and for a good price. A refreshing alternative to the generic touristy Florida hotels of the area. Very quiet for being so close to the beach, nightlife,etc. I wish we had more time to stay here.

Perfect for the adventurous, retro is a great word. Read other reviews about ck in times, etc. To be clear we are NOT beach folks. Found on TA. Parking tight. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were large but old. Strong smell of chemicals we have found in most beach places. We were heading to a cruise and just...

Easy check in and helpful staff. Room was clean and had a frig and microwave. Several stores nearby and restaurants fairly close. Beach was also close. Two pools on site. The only downside was internet really only worked well if you were near the pool. I would be very happy to stay again.

The Blue Strawberry by the Sea is a gem! We stay for 4 nights while we attended the Tortuga Music Festival. Although it was a little ways away from Ft Lauderdale Beach where the venue was, it was worth it. Not only did we get a great rate, but the staff was super friendly and accommodating!

We stayed here for one night, along with another couple. Rooms were great! Very roomy, updated and clean, the staff were very friendly. It's in a great location, with lots of restaurants, bars w/i walking distance, etc... We paid only $95/night. Why pay $300-$500 at fancy schmancy hotels? Save your money and stay here!
