We stayed here two years ago and through a misunderstanding the booked date was wrong, the manager Ms Williams couldn't have been more helpful so when we booked our cruise three weeks ago we knew where we wanted to stay! Both pre and post cruise stays have been great. Clean rooms, comfy beds, everything in order! But what happened to...

We stayed here the night before our cruise. They provided a shuttle from the airport and arranged transportation to the cruise ship for a very reasonable fee. A very nice breakfast was provided. A very friendly and convenient hotel.

We stayed for one night ahead of our cruise. This hotel was dated but is currently expanding. Breakfast was good, fast wifi and friendly staff. Starbucks across the street was a nice bonus. If you have kids know there is no pool. I'd say this is a good stopover hotel or for a short stay in Fort Lauderdale.

We stayed 2 Nights at this Holiday Inn and used our IHG Points to pay for it. We are Platinum Elite status. We wanted to see a bit of Fort Lauderdale prior to the Cruise. We walked to the Cruise Port as it is very close to the Hotel and wanted to get our bearings straight because we were going...

We stayed one night in a room where the phone and coffee machine both didn't work. Possibly given this room because our friends were using their "points". No water pressure in the shower. Found the bed very comfortable and the breakfast they served was decent.

As everyone else reviewing, was used as a pre-cruise stay. Room was fine for that. Had mini fridge but I couldn't get it as cold as I would like. Publix and total wine are walking distance which was nice to stock up before he cruise. Looks like they are doing an addition which would be nice. We had 5 people....

This Holiday Inn Express is near to both Ft Lauderdale Airport and the Cruise port. We stayed the night before our cruise. Friendly staff, nice hotel rooms and breakfast included. The one negative was the exceptionally high price for this location compared to all the other Holiday Inn Express hotels.

Clean hotel, friendly staff, convenience stores close by, breakfast was ok, clean pool and recreational facilities. The shuttle service to the mall was on time, however uber would have been cheaper and with less stops.
