This hotel was a bit old and at that point where I feel it is maintained as best as it can be. The staff was great and the location for my work could not be beat. There was places to eat close by and a mall that is like many malls on the decline with young kids in full patrol...

Very impressed with the hotel and the staff. I was only there overnight pre-cruise, but would consider a return there in the future. The one disappointment was that there are no rooms with 2 beds and I got the couch. I opened the sofa bed laid on it and closed it right up, it was horrible. So I slept on...

Hi John! Thank you so much for your 5 star review of our hotel. I'll be sure to pass on your comments to our staff. I am sorry to hear that you didn't find our sofa beds to be comfortable. We do offer two-bedroom suites that have the 2 beds that you are looking for, and they also offer a...

I kept feeling like something was biting me while I was in bed. The sofa couch needs to be updated along with the other furniture. The bathroom sink was too low and the carpet needs to be upgraded. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was good.

This is a very nice Residence inn. It is away from the traffic but a close drive to the beaches, convention center or business spanning between Ft Lauderdale and even Miami. especially when the rooms get scarce in Miami. Also its near a nice set of restaurant's.

Great experience! Hotel attendant Julie Ann on nights did an excellent job at tending all of my needs. In my opinion she is a very talented hard working employee that is a master at multi tasking. I'm very impressed with the level of professionalism and dedication Julie Ann demonstrated to make my stay very impressionable!

We had only a one night stay at this lovely Inn. Friendly staff. Loved the kitchen with a full size fridge, and sitting area. Wish we could have stayed longer. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was nice. Pool is very nice. Would definitely recommend this quaint little place!

bed was very uncomfortable. Sleeper couch was awful. Kitchen area wasn't 'finished'. Carpenters need to go back and professionally finish their work. Only stayed one night. Slight mix up with reservation. Settled but staff said 'long day'? Didn't like the attitude. She replied she had a long day too. Will try another place in Plantation for our next visit.

Wonderful property and people - recommended! Has all you need if you're willing to stay 20 minutes from the beach. Rooms are clean, the property is well-designed, the pool is kept warm, and the typical breakfast is a pleaser. However - The staff is what really differentiates this hotel. Hey are warm, welcoming, and well-informed.

I'm always surprised with all the extras that this hotel provides. I checked in just at the outset of social hour and socialized with some of the other travelers, many of whom had also traveled from northeastern US. The room layout of the rooms resemble a studio, with everything in one room. I've seem much better layouts for rooms, Hayatt...
