Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Pelind We got very good service with a great room
We came off a Panama Canal cruise and needed a two day stay at Ft. Lauderdale Holiday Inn before we flew out to BC Canada. We were pleasantly pleased with the service we got when we arrived, the room and especially the housekeeping lady that we had. She was happy and was efficient in what she had to do. The free breakfast was adequate with a variety of cereals, oatmeal and muesli was also available. The hot food consisted of scrambled eggs and bacon with your choice of toast or bagels and all kinds of fruit. Pretty darn good for a few breakfast! The only downside is there wasn't an in-hotel restaurant, but they would have bused you to the restaurant approximately a mile away. There shops and the usual MacDonalds, Subway, etc., fast food places if you wanted to take your life in your hands crossing the road to get to them. We were able to get a couple of frozen dinners and fruit from the Piggly Wiggly as we also had a microwave in our room. There is a small gym and a really lovely pool on this property. All in all it was a pleasant stay and we would stay there again. We highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by terrib05 Fantastic service
After driving to the airport at 4:00 a.m. for a 7:00 a.m. flight and arriving at 10:30 a.m.; well before the 3:00 p.m. check-in time. We were extremely tired and did not look forward to dragging about the city for 4 and a half hours waiting for a room. The front desk suggested we go and get a bite to eat and then they would try to have a room readied for us. Before we were able to decide where to go eat and call a taxi our room was ready! 20 minutes after we arrived we had our room and it was such a relief to be able to wash up and lay down for awhile before going out to lunch. For this alone I would recommend this hotel. The complimentary breakfast the next morning was also very good. We used the shuttle service for transport to the cruise port and this was fast and easy. I would stay here again.

My wife booked this hotel for us to stay an extra night after returning from a cruise. We thought it would be closer to the beach, but that didn't matter because the friendly staff informed us they had a shuttle that would take you to another property that was closer for free. From there we took a quick and inexpensive trolley ride to the beach. We had a blast with our two kids! Enjoyed the beach life for a few hours, including an incredible ice cream and headed back to our hotel. All the drivers were very nice and extremely knowledgeable. Once we got back to our hotel we were greeted by the friendly staff who asked how our day went and genuinely cared. We returned to our room, which was very clean and nicely sized. Overall an awesome experience and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed only one night en-route to our destination. Overall experience was very good. Very clean room. Comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Only negative was the breakfast. Average for this type of hotel. Biscuits for the biscuits & gravy were stale.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by TravelBug63 Very Clean Rooms and Wonderful Staff!
My family and I stayed for one night at this property before our cruise. We found it to be very clean and comfortable. I remember thinking that I was relieved to have had a good nights sleep with no creepy crawly itchy feeling that I have unfortunately had in other hotel beds.The rooms are also a nice size. The staff is so friendly too! Daniella who works at the front desk is a doll! She was just the sweetest and most helpful! When we go on our next cruise we will stay at this location. It was a bit pricey, but for me, it was worth it to stay somewhere so clean.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by JMcCon28 Great for a Pre or Post Cruise Stay
Family & I took 2 rooms for a pre-cruise overnight. Very comfortable HIE. Good value, close to airport and port. Free airport shuttle a nice touch. Helpful & friendly staff answered questions, arranged local transport for dinner & to ship next day. Nice pool area, but smaller.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Katkenny89 Great stay!!
I picked this hotel bc of its price and proximity to the airport, but was blown away by the value and the service!! This hotel is so beautiful and so nice, but even better than that was the service. My boyfriend got sick overnight (a result of going to Kiki's, a restaurant that this hotel actually recommends but the food is HORRIBLE), and even though the hotel suite shop didn't have what I needed, Perry at the front desk helped me get across the street to the supermarket at 6:45am to get what I needed. He really went above and beyond to make sure we were okay, and that made all the difference. Apart from that, the facilities are beautiful - great stay and great staff!!

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Along4theRide Exceeded our expectations!!
We flew into Ft. Lauderdale the night before our cruise and just needed a place to stay that provided breakfast. Driver was ready and waiting for us to take us the short drive from the airport. Even though we had a group of 13 the check in was quick and easy. We were all roomed in a block of rooms on the same floor. Beds are super comfy and the choice of pillows in the room are nice. If staying here longer the fridge and microwave would have come in handy as well. The pool looked nice, but never had a chance to use it.
The breakfast was pretty good, loved the omelets and the pancake maker! After breakfast we went across the street to Big Lots for a case of water and a few things to take with us on the cruise. There is also a grocery store down the stripe mall. Overall we had a great experience and will use them again given the opportunity.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by socaltam Worth a short stay
We stayed here before our cruise. It's close to the airport and Port Everglades. The bed was truly comfortable. The staff were very nice and friendly! I think the price for the room was a bit high. We stayed at a resort on the beach after the cruise and paid close to the same price.
Overall, a great place to stay for a short time.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by CAnn23 Nice value
We arrived late night for a pre cruise stay. There was only one person working the front desk and our full shuttle bombarded him for late night check in. I had to tell the desk clerk that I was a rewards member. Every other HI Express that I have stayed at has thanked me for being a member and gives me a little goodie bag. Maybe he was too busy? Not sure and this wasn't a huge deal to me but it is still nice when I am recognized. Anyway, the room was nice & clean & and had everything we needed. However, the halls outside the rooms smelled VERY strong of room deodorizer. Really strong. Thankfully I could not smell it once inside the room. Hotel is located across the street from a shopping center which was great for purchasing a few things from the grocery store for our cruise.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Dave422 Excellent! Everything A++++++!!
We stayed for three nights, and it couldn't have been better. The rooms were kept in great shape. The front desk attendant was very responsive to our needs. Their shuttle service transported us between the hotel and the airport, and was very friendly about it. Breakfast was great as well!
I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone traveling in the area.

We choice this Holiday Inn Express location because of how close it was to the Port of Sail. We were scheduled to take a family vacation cruise for 7 days on the "Allure of the Seas" with Royal Caribbean Cruise line.
Our stay was to enjoy a mini vacation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida prior to the cruise. It was a blast, we enjoyed every bid of our time in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. We plan to stay at this location again when we revisit Fort Lauderdale next year.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by JVick Quiet room and fast check-in
Upon checking in I was given a bottle of water and a snack for being a IHG Rewards Club member but more importantly the person that checked me in greeted me with enthusiasm. The room was quiet with a nice comfortable bed so I slept like a baby. Every morning there is a free breakfast with fruit, juices, eggs, bacon or sausage etc. Plus if you get the munchies across the street there is a couple of fast food restaurants and a sports bar that are open late. I would recommend this hotel since it is located close to the Fort Lauderdale airport and port for cruises (about 2 miles) and I'd definitely stay here again.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by JacqPeanut Spacious room & great value
We're a family of 4 with 2 boys ages 10 & 7. We stayed here one night before our flight at FLL back to Boston. We were pleasantly surprise of the spacious & clean room. The 2 queen beds were nice and comfortably soft. It has wired in the room so you don't need your own wired or place a deposit with the front desk to borrow a wire. Wireless wi-fi is all over the property. The business center has 2 computers and a printer so I was able to check-in with the airline and print our boarding passes which was a big plus.
Breakfast was okay. Our boys like cereal, sausage and fresh pancake. The apple juice was way too sweet for some reason. Coffee tasted strange. I wish they had hazelnut creamer that would offset the coffee taste somewhat.
But for the price, I'm more than satisfied. I would definitely stay here again if we were in the FLL area.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Marines20 Ft Lauderdale Airport/Cruise
I found the hotel was nice and the room very large with a small frig and microwave. The pool was nice though it was outside and the gym was small but useable. The staff were knowledgeable, and informed me of the shuttle times to the airport. The shuttle started its daily run at 3 am; I had a 7:45 am flight so I needed to take the 6am shuttle to get thru security, the breakfast bar was up and running prior to 6am (that's when it starts) so I was still able to get a bite before leaving. Shopping was in walking distance across the street and a 5 min ride to the airport. Yes I would stay there again if I'm visiting.
