Snooze hotel Ft Lauderdale is a no frills hotel. If you are into beds sheets being turned down & chocolates on your pillow then this is not for you, but if you just want a room with comfortable beds , shower , fridge / freezer, safe & tv and coffee making machine this is a must. The rooms are spacious...

We stayed in this hotel April 9th -12th after being on a cruise. We wanted somewhere to chill. We actually booked this hotel last year after reading all the reviews. It was great, and true to all the positive reviews. Matt was extremely helpful, especially as we were early and he allowed to store our luggage while we had a...

Thank you folks! I'm honored that you appreciated my service and our hotel. We have a very simple goal at the Snooze. We want to give you the best possible vacation experience because we know how hard people work to get to enjoy a break at the beach. Our team takes great pride in our hotel and the service we...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Snooze while in town for a friend's wedding. The view is amazing from the front deck and the roof. Room was cozy and quiet, and we were even directly across from the elevator. Never heard any noise, even though it happened to be a spring break week. If you're looking for a comfortable,...

It was fun having your wedding party at the hotel! I got to know quite a few of you while you were here. We love guests that come to relax and have a great time with friends. Our hotel is a great venue for weddings and private parties! One of the most important aspects of the Snooze is the ability...

The hotel is wonderful, staff is super friendly and it is right across the street from the beach. Rooftop terrace has a beautiful view and lots of comfy places to sit. We were on a cruise and came back early in the morning before check in time and the manager was very helpful; letting us change and store our things...

Every day, guests are surprised when they show up and their room is ready hours before check in. We communicate with our guests to find out arrival times and try to have rooms ready based on those times. In the unlikely event that they aren't we are happy to do what we did for you folks. We will store your...

Ok I've never given a bad review like this before but if your looking to stay here don't! I made the mistake of relying on trip advisor. Only a 2 night stay night 1 woken up at midnight by neighbors slamming there door. Ok can't blame the hotel for this but upon further review its so hard to close the...

Thank you for making me aware of this situation. I want to personally apologize for the unacceptable service you had. I expect any member of our team to resolve a situation, not offer beer. Had I been there, I would have closed the office and cleaned the room myself. I would also have found out from the housekeeper why she...

Stopped here for two nights pre cruise. Family of three. Matt greeted us on arrival, very friendly and informative. Rooftop area great. Borrowed chairs and boogie boards free of charge to use at beach. Very useful. Rooms clean and functional. Only gripe was although I had booked as a family of three for a double room I expected a bed...

We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. There did seem to be some confusion about the room type. The type of room you reserved had one king bed. We don't book rooms by number of people but rather by the type of room you choose. I have had parents with a young child before who prefer a room with...

The best things about this hotel is the location (lovely views of the beach and sea) and the friendly staff. The rooms are good with everything you need. It is a small hotel with parking and a lift. This is an ideal hotel for a short stay.

Thank you for choosing us and for your kind words! We do have great views of the ocean. In addition to our three oceanfront suites, we have a great second floor terrace and a massive rooftop terrace that gives views of the ocean on one side and the downtown and Intercoastal Waterway on the other side. Add to that we...

Recently stayed at the Snooze prior to a cruise. Great find right across from the beach. Excellent FREE beach amenities - towels, sunscreen, toys, chairs etc. Clean and comfy kitchenette area allowed us to get snacks/breakfast and bring back. Nice restaurant next door - Casablanca Cafe - was delicious. We also tried the Coconuts restaurant nearby - meh, not sure...

Thanks for staying with us! I'm glad you picked one of our rooms with a kitchenette. Those are great not only because the kitchenette comes stocked with all of the silverware, glasses, dishware, etc. but also because those rooms are twice the size of our standard rooms. It's also good to hear you enjoyed all of the free beach gear....

We would definitely stay there again. Only thing missing was a pool. However, the complementary beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, noodles and sunscreen, help you to forget! Free parking too!! Great roof top terrace overlooking ocean and intercostal. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Walking distance to all our favorite spots. Directly across the street from the ocean. Great bang...

Other than saying that we appreciate you staying and thank you for your comments, I don't think there is much I could add! I suppose I could mention that we also have a grill our guests love to use. I've seen guests get fresh fish from our local grocery and cook a great dinner on our first floor terrace. We...

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
