If you want cheap and dont care about cleanliness...this ones for you. I would not even shower in the bathroom. I hope rhe other rooms were better than ours. This was a place to stay before our Cruise. I would not recomend it to anyone. The resturant they recomened ripped us off and the only thing that was was god...

Stayed for the price, but the difference was not worth it, could have paid a few dollars more and stayed in a much better place. I was not warned I had to reserve the shuttle for the back trip to the airport, had then to deal with a disrespectful driver.

This motel room was filthy. Mini fridge had mold in it, someone elses hair on the bathroom floor and shaved whiskers in the sink! It's pretty bad when you feel you need to sleep in your jeans. Couldn't get out of there fast enough. I didn't feel safe, sleeping with one eye open.The screen on the window was all bent...

This is a decent hotel. It is not top quality but you also do not pay for top quality. Well worth the cost. Shuttle service is prompt. Rooms are acceptable. On site restaurant / bar is good. Free breakfast is great.

We were just passing through and the price was right. The room was large and clean but a little bit old, but you could see they were working on it. The bathroom shower was new but the bathroom floor had cracks. The people were nice and the airport shuttle was timely. Would I stay there again probably if I was...

Chose the Econo Lodge for the free pickup at the cruise terminal and transfer to the airport as we had a early flight the next day. We arrived at the cruise terminal on the 29th of Dec. Had made earlier arrangements to be picked up by the shuttle to the hotel. Shuttle on time, but the ride to the hotel...

We just used this place for 1 night for a cheap place to avoid a DUI after going out to Wilton Manors nearby. It's a skeevy place. Roaches around the sink, I immediately stripped the bed of the comforter. Yes it is cheap but there are better options. It seems that there are shady people around too. Not a good...

By far the least expensive "name" branded place I could find the night before heading to Miami Beach, this facility wasn't glamarous, but not so bad. The public bus from Fort Lauderdale Airport (a lower cost alternative to MIA) got me to and from there easily. Traffic is heavy and crowded around the lodge, yet I was able to walk...

This hotel is right off the street along Federal Hwy. Had a room right across the car wash which was not so great, since it was very loud until the evening. Pool was nice chilly. Room was good size. Good for a transit stay, worth its money, we got it on a coupon rate, which was great!
