We stayed at the Away Inn based on the good reviews we read here on TripAdvisor. We were very disappointed and wonder how the place has good reviews. The room we were given had a bad odor when we got there. We tried another room but it was the same thing. They claim to have WiFi but it didn't work... More

We stayed at the Away Inn in June and cannot believe the good reviews because it was probably the worst place we've ever stayed. When we checked into our room, the air conditioner was blowing warm air. It took six and a half hours for the man to come and fix it. The manager would not give us another room.... More

Read the good reviews of this hotel so decided to stay here for 5 nights over 4th July Celebrations. We were not disapointed and wished we had booked for longer. This hotel is small and friendly and positioned at the beter quieter end of Fort Lauderdale, where the beaches are quieter and free parking supplied. Unlike Fort Luaderdale where the... More

We just returned from a month at the Away Inn, and were happy to find everything as good or better than our 3-week stay last February. Dorothy continues to manage the inn and her staff with an eye to keeping the guests happy and unaware of all the work that goes on behind the scenes. The housekeepers (many of them... More

The rooms were very clean and all looked renovated.The pool was warm and sitting around it was very relaxing. Would recomend this Inn to anyone visiting Fort-Lauderdale and looking for... More

This was our first visit for my husband and I to Lauderdale by the Sea. We were booked at another motel for our stay, which upon arrival we were very unhappy with our initial accommodations. After the first night we went looking for another hotel to move to and we were very fortunate to come across the Away Inn. From... More

We've been vacationing in Lauderdale-by-the Sea every winter for many years, but this was our first stay at the Away Inn. We wish we'd found it sooner. Our efficiency room was spotless, the beds comfortable and had all new linens, the furniture was new, and the room was tastefully decorated. We loved our view of the pool, and many days... More
