I've stayed here numerous times before because the rooms are pretty good for the price. However this was the first time I've stayed since they've made a few changes. First they've created a bar in the downstairs lobby which is pretty nice. The only issue is that the kitchen is still on the top floor. So when ordering food you...

Hello arichkidd, Sorry you do not agrree with our hotel policies. Yes the kitchen is on the 9th floor. We do bring food down to the brand new restaurant on the first floor. Continental is a light cold FREE breakfast and is not allowed to be taken out of the 9th floor. Sorry. Respectfully, Guest Relations Manager

Me and my boyfriend stayed here from Friday to Monday, we had the room on the 1st floor with the jacuzzi and pool view, Room was very nice and clean. My problem with this hotel was that they were running a special on-line if you stay 3 nights you get 20% off so when we got there I asked the...

Hello Tee121114, I am sorry for the confusion but if the 20% is not done on line we do not offer it at the front desk due to availabilty on the promotion. The FD clerk did tell the correct information. The pool patio room is for 2 persons max also. We have to abide by fire codes and policies. We...

Stadium Hotel provided the family what we needed for a convenient, easy stop over while attending game day at Hard Rock Stadium. Room was older, but clean and pleasant and served its purpose quite well. Breakfast was a little lite, but again served its purpose providing us with something before pigging out at the stadium. Because of the Stadium Hotel's...

Booked 2 queen bed room facing stadium. When we got to hotel said no queens available. Same thing happened to friends staying there with us. Elevators in terrible shape. Had that old hotel smell, needs a good cleaning. Breakfast selection was bad.

Reasonably priced. About 25 minutes from the FLL airport. It's located right off the Florida Turnpike with lots of eating and shopping just a few blocks away. The rooms are comfortable with a mini fridge and microwave included. Breakfast is okay - nothing exciting. But it's free food - a meal to start the day. Bagels, toast, muffins, fruit, yogurt,...

Nothing good to tell. You could not even provide water/drink in the fridge. The elevator is in a bad shape. I traved from far off, arrived about 11am but was turned out for arriving too early and was told that i can not be checked in before 3pm. And the resturant was not open either.

Hello abi4032, Check in starts at 3pm and if the room is available we do offer earlier check ins. We sell out alot so the room must not have been available. We do have wi-fi. The restaurant is open from 12-8 and 12-10. Respectfully, Guest Relations Manager

Room was surprisingly good for the price. Since we were going to be busy attending a family event in the immediate area and did not intend to spend a lot of time on site or in the room, the choice was made to take a room on the city-side instead of the track-side where we had stayed previously and which...

The lobby beautiful. the elevators and hallways had a funny smell to them. The rooms look decent but dusty it smelled moldy the bathroom wasn't cleaned properly.

First time staying at this hotel, the location is very good, very close to the Hard Rock Stadium, also close to the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, did not find any issues with the hotel, except for the balcony, that rail needs some fixing.
