Everything about the stay was kinda surprise. I didn't expect much and was really pleased with the stay. I chose this motel because of the distance to airport, free parking and price, but will consider to stay there just for one night in the future

It's located 3 minutes from the main strip of restaurants on Fort Lauderdale Blvd ( includes The Big SandMan Statue). Hotel has a very Modern Feel for Decor with a beach vibe. 4 floors of rooms.

I was in South Florida on business and on a company imposed lodging budget. I'm very familiar with FLL so instead of staying at a chain by the airport I wanted to find something close to the water. Trip Advisor said this place was the spot so I drove up and took a look. The outside was clean and in...

Thanks for you kind review! I love 401 (and the other king suites 201 and 301). Every time I go to do the final room inspections, I have to pause and admire the view of the ocean from those rooms. Our goal is to provide you what you need and to save you money by not providing what you don't....

I stayed at the Snooze in room 304 with my mum for 5 nights from 27th November. Matt booked us in and was very informative, helpful and polite. Our room was on the 2nd floor and was huge. There were 2x american Kingsize beds in there as well as a kitchenette with a fridge / freezer, microwave and coffee machine....

We recently took a trip to Fort Lauderdale for a Panama Canal Cruise. I did my research and discovered the Snooze Hotel. It's one of the top rated hotels on the Fort Lauderdale Beach. The hotel is directly across from the beach. It offers free parking and wifi. The parking is tight and the wifi wasn't the best, but the...

Hello again from Matt at the Snooze! I of course remember you folks well and was thrilled you chose to stay with us both before and after your cruise. After you checked out, we spoke on the phone and I want to again apologize that Fort Lauderdale paved the A1A during your second night. They normally send us an email...

Our arrival at the hotel was after the reception was closed (it closes 07:00 p.m.). We were contacted by the hotel administrator the day before arrival, and was given a good description of how to gain access to the room. This was informative and gave us a a safe feeling. We stayed in room 406, witch was a room of...

Thank you for choosing us and letting us know your opinion about the hotel. Our double king with kitchenette is great for families as it does have the fridge, microwave, all the silverware, plates, glassware, etc and of course 2 king beds. There may have been some slight miscommunication about the ocean view. Only our oceanfront king suites with one...

This place is awesome. Rooms are bright and very clean. The staff is great very helpful. Can say enough about this place. I would say there in a heartbeat! The only downside to snooze is the parking. It's a little tight if you have a larger vehicle but I'm sure with a little manoeuvring you can find a spot.

Thank you for your 5 star review! We are honored that you loved your stay at the hotel. You are correct that parking is best for compact cars. Although our lot can't fit extended cab trucks or Escalades, we do find most cars have no issue. We have a handful of spaces that are larger and we will gladly direct...

My three sons and I stayed here for six hours during a layover between airport and cruiseport. Although nothing fancy about the place it is clean and well maintained. Also in a perfect location right across the main street from the beach, also a very short walk to numerous shops and dining spots. I highly recommend it for anyone looking...

We are glad you stayed with us on your recent layover. Since we are on the beach and do our best to price below other oceanfront hotels, we are great for folks that want to spend the day getting in one last beach visit before a late flight!

We stayed at Snooze in February and really enjoyed the location, rooms and service.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Snooze is a modern take on the essentials needed for your home away from home. We believe traveling in style should be affordable without any hidden costs - just pay your room rate plus tax and that's it! We offer a clean, comfortable and modern room, plus add free parking, wifi, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. Keep in mind we offer the essentials so...No pool, no 24 hr service, no phones, no spa, no bell boy, no valet and no chocolates on your pillows. Why spend the extra money on extras you don't need? We are the last oceanfront Ft. Lauderdale hotel left with less than 20 rooms. There are plenty of "big box" branded hotels out there and we are proud we are not one of them. Snooze is located directly accross the street from Fort Lauderdale Beach next to the Westin and Ritz Carlton hotels. Direct Ocean View, Kitchenette and Hotel Rooms are available at the property. The airport (7 miles), cruise terminal (5 miles) and convention center (5 miles) are just minutes away. Free Wi-Fi and beach chairs and towels. Free parking as long as it is not an over-sized vehicle. Our check-in age is 25 and older. ... more   less
