Rooms are large and comfortable Building is showing age however the interior has been kept nice Breakfast is great and recommended getting down there around 7am to beat the crowds

Breakfast is from 6am-9am The pool area is a nice oasis offering shade at different parts of the day There is a hot tub just off the main pool The “E Spot” bar/restaurant downstairs next to the pool area has good food however it is the friendly staff that makes this spot worth your while My only complaint with this hotel is just the location It can be quite hard to get into the location from the busy strip Hope you found this helpful, I will definitely be back!

Simply said – everything was great! My family of four (10 year and 6 year old) had an amazing 4 night stay Every staff member from receptionists to bartenders to maids were very pleasant and helpful The pool was well maintained

The restaurant was perfect for a light meal The complimentary breakfast had a variety of options, and while it did get busy at times, the staff was always working hard to keep lines moving and cleaning tables off My kids loved the classic “Embassy feel” of the open atrium and glass elevators The rooms were a little outdated (namely the bathrooms – straight out of 1970 :), but everything worked fine and was clean For us to be there 5 days and not have a single issue! Highly recommend!

My stay at the Westin Fort Lauderdale was great Nice room and bed were very comfortable The front desk was very friendly and helpful

It was a birthday weekend surprise for my boyfriend, and he liked everything about this hotel He said the front desk staff was very accommodating to all his needs We both would like to thank the poolside bartender Jessica she was very nice and made some excellent drinks We recommend visiting this hotel it was a great time there

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your resort This web site will compare countless booking websites and typically will have rooms a lot cheaper compared to others! You’re welcome :)! This hotel is the best rated in this area

I have been coming here for a very long time If you stay for a few days you for sure won’t be disappointedAfter a nightmare experience with an AirBnb (never again) we came to the Westin Fort Lauderdale at 3 in the morning and were greeted by one of the most excellent customer service representatives we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, Nicole She made our check-in effortless, quick, and ensured that our stay here would be a fantastic one We had a car rental, so the location was extremely convenient (right off the highway) and several miles away from major boulevards and beaches The hotel is excellent, clean, welcoming, the staff are great and helpful The pool is refreshing and nice (although we wish it was heated), and the grounds are fantastic The only criticism I would have is that the pillows could be a bit firmer (or at least an option) and the pool should be heated Otherwise, the hotel is highly recommended, thanks again to Nicole!

Please be aware that this hotel is gradually being renovated You may not get a newly renovated room, and that makes a world of differenceThe first time we stayed here, it was great! The room looked fresh and was very clean

We decided to book a second time (for longer) based on that first experience, and it’s like we’re in a different hotel entirely this time The carpet is old and there are bare footprints all over it from the previous guests — no one had vacuumed the room when we arrived It’s dirty, outdated, and smells oddly perfume-y and damp There is what looks like a blood stain on one of the pillow cases and the couch is stained and faded It’s clear that the room we were assigned to this time isn’t one of the renovated onesThe only reason we are staying tonight is that we checked in very late after a long cross country flight Despite our reservation being non-refundable we will be moving to a new hotel tomorrow Yuck! Avoid this place unless you enjoy the thrill of not knowing what you’re paying for

We had a great stay and would definitely recommend! This place has a nice “at home” feeling It was certainly not a hotel, which we weren’t expecting or wanting The bonus was that the price was WAY BETTER than getting a hotel room

Jess was super nice and responded to a couple questions we had within a short time; she coordinated our arrival time well when we arrived a little earlyEntrances were private There’s a nice private common area with a hot tub and a grill The unit we stayed in had a private screened in porch area that is shared with another unitEverything was very clean and welcomingEven the Florida lizards were polite and fun to hang out with; especially Paco, who I think may have been part of the service staff But he kindly joined me and enjoyed my banana for breakfast; he was great conversationalist!It would be a perfect place to book a couple units for a family/friend trip or for just a quiet getaway

Only issue I had was the guest They were obvious drug addicts They were loud

I had to go off on them because of how loud they were The property manager did what she could to Accommodate and even get rid of the guest She offered a discount for my next stay Overall the property itself was very beautiful and clean I have no problem staying there again Sometimes they can not help who books there no matter how much their screen guest

Fraser Cambridge

Stayed here for 2 nights (Nov 2018) during a month long road trip around Florida, out of the 22 different places we stayed in during the month I ranked this 10th overallThe property is located on a busy road which we couldn’t safely turn left across, so we had to drive past and then come back to it on the right hand side Parking is provided off road between the street and the property

It’s about a 20minute walk to ‘Pirate Republic’ stop of the ‘Water Taxi’, Stranahan House downtown is about a 35minute walkI was a bit concerned about the entry system as the blurb says no one is on site after 3pm; we were due to arrive around 5pm However, Cynthia sent me an email a couple of days prior to our arrival date with the code for the front door Cynthia was actually there when we arrived, but this was unfortunately due to their having been an RTA that morning right outside the property which had wiped out a pylon and had cut off all the power! The electricity was literally reconnected by the power co as we walked through the front doorThe rooms were clean and well appointed The kitchen was well equipped (only place we stayed with a full oven/stove), although the coffee maker didn’t work very well during our stay The bedrooms do appear small as the bed takes up nearly all the space, but it is after all just a place to lay your head for a night or so There was no TV in the bedroom, just one in the decently sized lounge/dining roomThere is a guest laundry facility which was most welcome after 10 days on the road, and there is also a nice outdoor area with a grill for all guests to useThis is a place I would recommend staying at if on a tighter budget!

Far from the madding crowd A great quiet location with everything you could need for a quiet vacation within a 20 minute walk On site breakfast bar has a wide variety of delicious snacks and meals with pleasant attendants

Many local restaurants and bistros within a 10 minute saunter, although it does get crowded at normal feasting times! A wide variety of rooms to suit most peoples tastes, and the in room a/c is adequate for the climate Bathroom supplies were plentiful and housekeeping were always somewhere on hand for top ups or little extras A great little find

Maranda Jean

This is my go to spot for when I’m in town for work and the ladies at the front are so wonderful! Natasha always remembers me greets me with a smile as soon as I walk in I enjoy her conversation and look forward to my stays here because of her! The entire staff is so gracious and kind There is a nice little Starbucks and bar

Rooms are always clean and hotel is maintained extremely well Great work to this staff!

Sheila Jones

There were major problems with noise coming from a party in the hotel’s pool past 11:30 PM at night The hotel allowed 20 or more people to stay in the pool past the stated 11 PM closing time (the pool is in the middle of the hotel property) When a phone call was placed to the front desk at 11:30 PM about excessive noise still coming from a party happening in the pool, the desk attendant explained that the hotel cannot ask guests to leave the pool area even though it was time for it to close for the evening based on the hotel’s own rules

This was an absurd answer for a Marriott employee to give to a guest I’m all for people having a good time but what about the rest of the guests going to sleep? Hotels have rules for a reason This is second time we have used this hotel and won’t use it again

This hotel had great staff, was overall very well maintained, and had great food We stayed two nights in two different rooms Not the top of the line hotel by any stretch but it was a good affordable place to stay

The pool and exercise room were clean and quiet The second room we stayed in felt very damp and smelled bad like pee or mould from the air conditioner and that was really unpleasant but they were fully booked I would stay there again because the staff were great but should’ve pushed harder to get that room changed

kimberly cox

They let us know the room was ready early via email they let us check in right away checkin and checkout was greatThe room was spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable The only complaint would be breakfast the ladies working on Saturday morning were extremely rude they started shutting down breakfast before 9:30 am

If you asked for anything like the pancake machine to be refilled they said no until one guest spoke with the manager on duty and the ladies were told to put another bag of pancake mix in the machine They locked the fridge with milk and yogurt before 9:30 so you couldn’t get any even when I was asked I was told there is juice

Our company held a conference with approximately 40 people staying at the hotel including myself Everything was amazing from the reservation process, to checking in and room accommodations We had food catered in for two events and everything was amazing

The staff at this hotel makes planning and holding an event easy I had so many other elements to handle and having Maureen Sallustio, the Director of Sales manage the event was a blessingThe general staff all were accommodating, willing to help in any way, and went above and beyond

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any room This site will compare hundreds of booking websites and normally will have rates much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This place is one of the best in the area

I’ve been staying here for a long time If you stay for a few days you won’t regret itEverything was amazing The valet was very fast and efficient, all the staff was very kind and the rooms were clean! The gym was a tad small but I expect it I travel for business so this was everything I neededPhilencia Smith at the front desk treated me with the up most respect and made sure my stay was more than comfortable I had a horrible trip on the way there and after our interaction, I felt so relieved and grateful that she was there to help me9/10!!!

Jennifer Cale

We saved about $20 a night by staying here rather than other nearby hotels NOT worth it! Being cheap didn’t pay offIssues:- A lot of hair on the comforter

– Thin bedding that didn’t keep us warm- Stairs inaccessible from outside- Treadmill and elliptical were old models that haven’t been maintained and didn’t work well- Our outside view was obscured by a wall- Low water pressure- Loud wall AC unit The thermostat inside wasn’t attached to anything- Relatively remote location, so more miles put on the rental car- All staff have masks hanging down below their noses- The fridge is tiny – smaller than a dorm sized one – and the back half had built up ice, so our leftovers froze- Thin walls, loud noise from halls- They do offer breakfast, but only if you pay for each item- Stains on the bedding

First time staying at this particular hotel I loved it Even though it was 12 miles away from the convention center, I didn’t mind the drive because it is a world better than the hotels right by the convention center

I loved the location Staff was very nice and eager to assist with whatever you needed Exactly what you would expect from a Marriott property I will stay there again and hopefully Plantation Walk will be open Very nice!

Minh Hua

I have stayed over 1,000 nights at a Marriott branded Hotel This Hotel is significantly below average compared to other Sheratons I stayed atLet me first start with a positives

The guy in the club lounge was super curious, responsive and wanted to help Excellent service mire commonly found in Asia or Latin America that the United States The lobby gets lots of natural light and it appears was remodeled not too long ago It’s got your standard breakfast area, a little bar and some conference rooms There’s a fountain outside and there’s plenty of parkingThe reason why I’m getting this two stars is because the rooms are just very old and kind of dirty For example, there is scum in mildew all over the bathroom Another example of the coffee table was scratched up Except for the mattress, it felt more like a old courtyard Marriott than a Sheraton The room is large as you would expect in a suite but again in bad need of updating The drapery seem like it came from the 1990s The shampoo and soap they give you is from big bottles of fixed to the shower wall There’s some hygiene risk there given I’m sure they don’t replace the whole bottle after every guestI have included photos so you can judge for yourselfThe AC unit was loud and didn’t respond to the thermostat very well I think I might have caught a head cold or something after two nights

Maggie Lou

Did a weekend staycation, this hotel is located in the heart of the upcoming area of Plantation Walk For that reason, make sure you get a parking pass because they do ticket cars There is security patrolling the area on a cart

Just a reminder parking isn’t free The staff were really nice and helpful The Sheraton Suites appears to be renovated from the outside and lobby area There are places were upgrades can occur such as the pool and hot tub area The room was nice but it has it quirks like turning the switch down to turn on the light, the noise the sink makes, the struggle opening the closet, and the movement of the refrigerator when you opened it They have a dining area where they serve breakfast, Starbucks, and a small bar Aside for a sign saying they have a breakfast buffet, if you don’t inquire about its most hush-hush There were not many people eating meals when I pass by in the morning or evening If there was a menu available in the room or during check-in, I’m sure they would have more people The hotel was reasonably priced but certain days the price fluctuates tremendously especially weekends and holidays

Very nice hotel, close to many nice eating places Rooms are nice and cleaned well They will only come in and do a lite clean up and make beds after your 3rd night

Trash can is to be put outside your door to be emptied by 2pm It’s ok,but a little pricey per night We stayed 2 nights for $336 plus $100 deposit you get back Nice breakfast in morning I guess I just expected a little more for less

Christine Detres

Super clean rooms! Complementary breakfast was off the chain the most sweetest ,nicest staff I’ve ever come across from the cleaning crew to the kitchen staff Breakfast was so delicious and so much varieties to choose and pick from Egg, sausages bacon ,French toast, oatmeal ,bagels, toast, muffins, cereals ,orange juice, apple juice, milk ,coffee just delicious

I highly recommend for anyone that’s needs a place to stay check out Hyatt PlaceI will definitely be coming back here and the best part of this resort they accept service dogs with no questions asked and no one bothers you I give it 10⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I just visited here for my boyfriends birthday I only stayed 1 night but I have no complaints on my visit My room was very clean

The weather was at 40 degrees, got a delicious hot chocolate from the bistro I forgot tooth paste and asked the front desk for some and to my surprise they actually had it They were extremely friendly and polite They only reason didn’t give it 5 stars is because the rooms have no microwaves

Sharon Miller

Mattress was extremely soft and needed a chiropractor after my stay No one should be asked to sleep on a mattress with absolutely no support whatsoever Pillows had absolutely no support whatsoever

Bathroom has no fan Room was not cleaned We were ignored Front desk has an attitude key card works when it wants to Hotel needs a makeover

Patrick Vial

Perfect location Close to the beach but not right on A1A where it’s hard to find hotels with parking Hotel has plenty of free parking

There’s a Denny’s right across the street and the hotel has their own Deli Shop I didn’t use the pool but it looked cozy and comfortable with plenty of sun The hotel was spotless Crew was always keeping it clean I like the balconies in the rooms overlooking the pool Very cozy tropical style

Overnight stay 5/21/22 Because of long drive got to hotel early 11am , check in wasn’t until 3pm Told clerk would have to sit in lobby until we could get in room

Within 30 minutes Clerk advised room was readyChancey did excellent job in helping us out Overall hotel is under renovations and room was across from two rooms they were renovating Workers did not quit until 6/7pm Heard all the banging, dropping of toolsetc until quitting time Breakfast was very good and breakfast host Hasina was very friendly and professional Not to bad of a stay would probably stay there again

Ms. Shugga Deborah Rosenbloom

Airport shuttle which is great Not sure if the driver speaks English, he never said a word except “thank you” when I tipped him 🙂 Breakfast is good and the morning host was quite pleasant

The bed sleeps well and the room is spacious Only thing bothered me was housekeeping knocking on my door before check-out 10:57, I had already called to let them know I was taking advantage of my membership and checking out late 20 minutes later another knock I strongly suggest leave a tip for housekeeping, they deserve it I appreciated leaving my luggage while the shuttle took me to the car rental It was most kind of him to suggest it, not knowing I would have a walk Of course I tipped himMost likely I will visit this location again

Elizabeth Hoelperl

Beware of the cancellation policy If your flight is canceled, they don’t care You will lose your deposit, one night’s stay, or reward points

Do not book this hotel until the very last minuteWhen our flight was canceled, we needed to change two other hotel nights, a tour, and a rental car All were past the cancellation deadline This is the only place that refused Therefore when I rebook this trip, I will not be staying here and I will happily rebook with all of the others Great housekeeping staff at this hotel—I was here for a week last summer Never again, unless I’m literally in the parking lot ready to check in

Nicole Hassell

Currently staying here on my last night in Florida with my daughter after staying in the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in the night before This hotel is the complete opposite! We feel very safe here! It has code entry for access to the hotel and the rooms and the owners are very careful who they rent to The rooms are clean and cozy and the staff are super friendly and take very good care of the property

The courtyard is quaint with various tables chairs and beautiful landscaping At night they close the umbrellas and turn on the lights that decorate the trees It’s just lovely! I would love to come back and stay here again

Jeff Eiskina

We enjoyed our stay in this perfectly located hotel, and had fantastic nights out in Fort Lauderdale The hotel was clean, secure, and the staff were all attentive and helpful I really appreciated the code system for entry, as I have a tendency to lose keys, or accidentally deactivating the card keys

This is close to the beach, all the attractions of Miami and the wonderful beaches up northI am a value traveler and this hotel was definitely the best value in the area And I had the most basic room possible, I imagine the upgraded rooms are fantastic

Alicia Mecum

Wonderful little boutique hotel We stayed for 4 nights and found it very clean, quiet, and safe It is very close to the airport and cruise port, just a mile or so away

The owners are very sweet, even their little dog Prince is a sweetheart! Parking is included with your reservation (which is very rare in Fort Lauderdale) and overall we felt we were getting very good valueWe originally booked an Airbnb, but they cancelled on us a couple of days before our trip (!), so we were happy to be able to book a 4 night stay at the Boutique Hotel pretty much last minute We stayed in a studio suite which is a pretty large room with a full kitchen (like a REAL kitchen, not one of those mini-hotel sized kitchens) with granite counters and full sized stainless steel appliances It is essentially a studio apartment and was great for us because my husband preferred not to go out to restaurants since we were going on a cruise and will eat like kings for a week!We loved it and will definitely stay here whenever we come to Fort Lauderdale

This hotel has the potential to be a nice hotel However, there are some issues that needs to be rectified During my 2 day stay my room did not have any hot water in the shower

I was told that the water only gets warm but the water didn’t even get warm It is obvious that the pool haven’t been cleaned in a very long time Plus the overall cleanliness of the hotel can be better Even though the rooms are decent and the hotel is in a good location The issues that I address tends to take away from the potential of the hotel

Woke up and wanted to take a shower; the water was cold You can imagine how that felt They serve “breakfast”

Came down and it was a few apples, crunch bar and a few pre made ham/sausage burgers No veggie options Pool was not functioning Jacuzzi was dysfunctional Why did I pay that much money for? Would’ve been better off at Marriott or Hilton Staff was nice and respectful, that’s why the two star

It was such a nice homey place to stay at, I was a bit disappointed that the restaurant was closed but the staff was very polite and accommodating to whatever I needed The pool and hot tub were wonderful and the flowers and occasional lizard/iguana sunbathing nearby made it feel so magical The rooms are extremely spacious and clean, but they do tend to get a little chilly at night

I would definitely stay there again

David Kistler

I would call this a “boutique” hotel From the outside, it appears very unassuming However, the room was very clean and smelled fresh

This hotel has a great location, with restaurants and shops within walking distance It appeared to be a safe area alsoWe flew into Ft Lauderdale the day before our cruise started I emailed the hotel after making our reservation to let them know we would arrive early I understood that early check-in may not be available but asked if we could leave our bags in the office until we checked in I quickly received a response from Billy and he told me they would be happy to store our bagsWe got to the hotel around 10:00AM Much to my surprise, Billy had 2 rooms ready for us!There is a small, but adequate pool in the courtyard, along with a hot tubeThe property is secured by a gated fence around it Entry into the property is obtained by coded lock on the gatesSomething I found a little odd, but not really a reason to downgrade my rating There was no phone or alarm clock in our roomThe front desk is only manned from 9:00AM to 6:00PMNow, a little about BillyI assume he is the GM, and mans the front deskDuring our stay, the screw in my eye glasses fell out and was lost So, the lense popped out I checked with Billy to see where I could get a repair kit nearby He told me not to worry, as he had the small screwdriver at his house and would bring it in the next morningThe following morning, Billy brought his screwdriver and a pair of glasses a guest had left behind some time ago He removed the screw and put it in my frame to secure my lense This was incredible service from BillyNote to management: I suggest you change your cable channel lineup card in the rooms The card was useless, as many of the channels listed were unavailableOur next trip to Ft Lauderdale we will return to The Victoria Park Hotel

I was here for two nights and I found the room to be clean and the staff to be very accommodating My only issue is my room was near the highway which sometimes people with out mufflers would go by during the evening This is not the hotels fault and I am sure I could have asked for a different room and they would have done this

The room has a full refrigerator, stove and microwave Wifi worked great and I would stay here again

Ivy 2343

Stayed in 2 bedroom suite It’s bigger than most but a bit rundown and stained It’s on a busy street so it is not as quiet as I would have liked

The breakfast was fine with eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurt etc coffee is at the front desk instead of with the breakfast for some reason The pool was very tiny and we decided not to go as 2 guests in there already made it too crowded I would say I’d pass next time Keeping it real as always

Lawrence Jones

Don’t stay here The room was not new and clean as it appeared on the picture Actually looked nothing like the pictures, well a dirty run down version

It stated that it was a smoke free room and that room smelled like a chain smoker stayed there We left right away and they still charged us a 1 night stay and we were literally in that room for 2 mins If your a chain smoker and don’t mind a nasty room then this place is for you

My room was not cleaned, the carpet not vacuum I found broken glasses on the carpet in the room Back of the toilet seat had poop stains

I asked to changed the linen All they did was putting them in the room for me to changed myself The crazy thing is when I go to the front desk and asked if they could clean my room vacuum and cleaned the toilet It seem the front desk right away see me as someone making life difficult Even though I took pictures of the stains and glasses on the floor It seem no one checked if what I was saying was even true I spent two weeks at that place and it was not clean I had to be the one asking for new blanket and i did my bed Toilet was filthy and smell like someone was smoking cannabis in it I actually took pictures of the room if anyone want to see or think I am just complaining Trust me I’m nice in my review the customer service was the worst I have ever had in any hotel I ever been I met only one lady that seems to care at the front desk after I showed her picture of the room She was nice and stated she was the front desk manager But even though she assured me the room would be cleaned By the time I came back at night the room was not done or vacuum However the day after the toilet stains was finally wiped away That was before my last day staying at the hotel I would not suggest for anyone to stay at this place However I did feel it was a safe place to stay

The Good: The staff was very courteous, offered free bottled water, and the room was clean/spacious, especially at the given price point The fact that they also offer a free parking garage for guests to use is a huge bonus The bed was also very comfortable, with nice (useful) pillows

The not so good: I deducted 1 star because the rooms are in desperate need of a professional remodel The current state of the rooms just looks like 30-40 years of quick remodel jobs (thick, caked on paint, old wall plates for light switches and outlets, extremely loose wall outlets, etc) If you’re staying here for a night or two, you’re totally fine Anything more is your call

Fast, friendly arrival/check in experience I was checked in by someone who appeared to be relatively new and learning, and he did a great job! He was being actively mentored/supervised by an experienced associate and they did a great job Did it take longer to check in? Well, based on my experience as a frequent traveler, I would say, yes it did probably take 30-45 seconds longer

I’ve experienced this before and I never mind seeing someone learning especially when they appear to want to learn Both the trainee and the trainer seemed to have a very customer-centric attitude and dispositionThe ladies working in the “Bonvoy Lounge” (I think that’s what its called) were awesome! So friendly and welcoming Their hospitality was great and it was obviously very realFitness center could be cleaned up a little (and restock the cleaning wipes for wiping down equipment) but it was nicely equipped and I am grateful for it

My best friend and I had a great experience at the Oasis Hotel The staff was incredibly friendly and the accommodations made our expectations Their garden area is super nice, strong wifi signal and the location is close to everything

The room was cleaned regularly and we had no issues with the check in/ out If you’re looking for a reasonable stay in FL area with all the access then I would say look no further


Minutes away from whole foods, pizza, drug store and across the street from a Starbucks We stayed for 9 days as my partner recovered from surgery and and it was exactly what we needed We were in the hotel probably 80% of our trip

Most of things I was unhappy with are things out of the hotels control, as its not a new building (Small bathrooms, loud ac blowing directly on the bed, slow drains etc)We only had loud neighbors at the end of our stay, who were up until 3am (really thin walls) Parking lot also needs to be repainted, lines aren’t visible and parking can get confusing and crampedAgain these are things the hotel can’t really control, but are worth mentioning for comfortabilityHowever, I loved the grounds of the hotel Beautiful landscaping and foliage throughout, and they have a great courtyard to have your coffee in We met the hotel cat here too Everyone was friendly we interacted with tooI probably would get a larger room if we were planning to stay for more than 3 nights, but this is perfect for a short stay or vacation where you won’t be in the room very much

First and Foremost, if you want the truth about this hotel, I’m going to give it to you right now! This hotel is great from start to finish Found this hotel last minute and seen it was a 2 star hotel, but I think this hotel deserves more than that for sure I checked in at 4:45pm by Chris

He was very helpful and I didn’t have to wait long to get checked in The room I had was clean Bathroom was clean and had no complaints The courtyard was peaceful and very nice for the price I paid for and couldn’t believe that you could find a hidden gem in the heart of Las Olas Downtown area Now that I gave you this honest review, you to go ahead and book you stay NOW!!! I promise you, you won’t regret it And thank you Chris for being a great hotel guest I will be back and recommend everyone to stay 😊

Hotel is old Bed was very uncomfortable Lumpy and too soft

Pillows were lumpy and so thin they offered no support AC wasn’t working well Room temperature was just below 80, even hallway was cooler This was one of the worst Hampton Inns I’ve stayed inStaff was friendly but poor room quality couldn’t be overcome I would not recommend

Morgan m

One of the best Hampton Inn I have stayed at Down on business, manager helped me with tweaking my last minute reservations Breakfast was better than quite a few other Hamptons I’ve stayed at

Every location will be different for sure, but cleanliness, accommodating, and flexibility wise they are doing it rightWill definitely stay here again next time I am in town

Service was 5 stars Our first room was awesome until we found a pile of dirty towels left behind in the bathroomThe staff immediately changed our room and upgraded us to a large suite

After about 40 minutes or so in the new room the staff called to make sure the new room was goodWe really appreciated the quality customer service

Vashti Roberts

The exterior and lobby was nice, however, upon entering the elevator,, it went downhill The room was disgusting The room was musty and the walls were grimy

The ac was dripping on the rug and was noisy The bathroom was dirty- shower tiles appeared to have not been scrubbed in months, the air vent was filthy, and the shower curtain was either speckled with mold or dirt from the vent The smoke alarm was removed from the ceiling and placed on the sink The bathroom wall and bed sheets also had hair on it and the beds were uncomfortable I also spotted a roach near the ac upon departure I am glad we had disinfectant spray and wipes to help a little It was unfortunate that we had to check in late,, making it inconvenient to switch rooms and risking encountering the same issues An awful experience and room for $190+ and we only stayed for ~5 hours I do NOT recommend this hotel

Donna Johnson

The staff was extremely friendly Our room was clean The buffet and common areas were also clean

They let us do a slightly early check in ( about 2pm ) I was having tests at the Cleveland clinic in Weston and all the pet friendly hotels in Weston had jacked up prices and pet fees to what I felt was unreasonable pricing for 3 star hotels Pet fees as high as 150 ! We have a small senior terrier that travels with us and this La Quinta did not charge extra I would stay here again as it was only 15 minutes from the clinic
