Great service, very helpful and friendly staff. We took the last room they had and glad we did. Close to everything shopping, restaurants, Publix and the cruise line port was 20 minutes away. Room was very comfortable.

I was extremely hesitant to book an overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Express near the cruise terminal in Fort Lauderdale and remembered why after we arrived. The staff for the most part was friendly, however we got in late and I guess got the last room available on the second floor next to the elevator. The room smelled musty...

This a great location for pre cruise stay with many good restaurants in the area plus you have Greg at the front desk. His personality makes for a great visit. Greg welcomes all and is a super ambassador for the hotel.

Clean and very friendly staff! Would definitely stay again! I used the fitness room which was small but I was the only one so I didn't mind at all. It was clean and well taken care of. Continental breakfast had many options! My husband had the biscuits and gravy and said they were good! Very happy with our stay!

I recommend this hotel. Great location, comfortable bed, great breakfast and it has shuttle service. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only negative thing was the air conditioning unit. It was loud and woke me up several times.

This is one of at least 3 Holiday Inn Express hotels in the FLL airport area, so be careful if you are taking the free airport shuttle - this is the one on 17th Street with the phone number printed on their van ending in 2577. The hotel itself is undergoing a renovation and addition of a new wing. Not...

The hotel staff was friendly but outside was a little troubling. The parking was limited due to ongoing contruction but it was okay experience for the most part. King beds were also limited, so I settled for a double bed. Breakfast was simple but had enough for the average continental sections.

Gloria Williams, the hotel manager and desk clerk Greg made my day! They rectified a last minute snafu--which was the fault of the booking site, not them--and went the extra mile to make our vacation great.

Stayed here after a Cruise. Lots of places to eat nearby. If you fancy a walk, then Los Olas is fairly close over the the Causeway. There's a Water Taxi stop a short walk away which is definitely worth a try. The staff were superb. Always friendly and willing to help. The new extension being built didn't really impact on...

This hotel, even though there was construction going on, was an ideal location for our precruise stay. It is an excellent value for the dollar. The hotel was clean, and the personnel could not have been nicer. Breakfast was more than adequate. In our case, we had flown into Miami, and rented a car at Budget. Another of the reasons...
