Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nt4lng Very comfortable
This is exactly what I needed after my cruise and before my flight the next day. The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean, the bathroom was clean and the shower felt great. Operating the A/C was easy and simple. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good, however I don't recommend the omelette thing, it was ... strange. Other than that everything exceeded my expectations. Shuttle service was on time and got me to the airport in reasonable time considering the drive definitely follows the speed limit of the streets and the airport. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NaplesPas Great value, Great Location, Great Staff
Our group of 16 stayed at this hotel just before leaving for an overseas trip. On our arrival we were greeted by Wellington, who worked at the front desk. He was tremendous and met all our needs, including storing some of our suitcases downstairs for an early morning flight. Kudos to Wellington! Also, the shuttle driver taking us to the airport at 4:00 AM was superb.
The only downside was that there was no hot coffee in the breakfast area available when we left for the airport.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by goslice NICE HOTEL WITH UNFRIENDLY CLEANING STAFF
Stay here if you enjoy coming back to a room that has not been cleaned (on two different occasions). Stay here if when you go down stairs to get towels because your room wasn't cleaned you are told you can't have more towels now because she doesn't have the key. Stay here if you want to be transferred to a voice mail when you ask to speak with the manager. Stay here if you enjoy being told that the reason your room wasn't made was because you had left the sign on your door all day when YOU KNOW that is not true. Stay here if you enjoy seeing everyone eating scrambled eggs and being told they are out now. Stay here if you enjoy waiting for the rude cleaning staff to push their cleaning cart on the elevator before you. Stay here if after all of the above and during checkout the manager makes absolutely no concession other than an apology.

Our stay was pretty much what we expected from Holiday Inn and IHG hotels. However, I was surprised when they authorized our credit card for the stay before we arrived. Never had that happen before and we have used many IHG hotels and Holiday Inn Express in particular.

This staff blew away my expectations. I was in town for a wedding the staff was very attentive, professional and real! I've traveled to the area before and never stayed here before. The hotel is clean, awesome parking, only 7 min. From the airport. Breakfast was by far the best among Holiday Inn.

BEWARE...be informed that I made repeated calls to the desk requesting pickup at FLL. Each time I was told the shuttle would arrive within 10 minutes. I watched Holiday Inn shuttles ignore me and was finally picked up after an hour wait!

Stayed one night prior to a cruise. Hotel is close to FLL and the Port. Had the best breakfast experience when the breakfast attendant made "goodie" bags for all of the children at breakfast. Not just select tables, she must have made ten bags while we were eating. It put a smile on all of the kids faces including mine. Unexpected and generous!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Need More Vacations Great Choice - No Complaints
I stayed with my wife and 14 year old son for the day before and the day after a carribean cruise in March 2014. The hotel is very new and clean. The room we had was spacious and well appointed with a large flat screen TV with the largest selection of TV and specialty channels that I have ever seen at a Holiday Inn Express or any other hotel for that matter. The staff were friendly, helpful and accomodating. The pool on the fourth floor was very nice with the right amount of sunshine with some shady areas as well for those that are not sun worshippers. The breakfast was better than the average Holiday Inn Express. There was a large seating area and a good selection of hot and cold menu items. The breakfast attendant was very accomodating and cheerful. It is a short drive to the beach and is convenient to both Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood. They give priority club members a gift bag at check in, which is a nice touch. The vending machines are not overpriced like at many other hotels which was a pleasant surprise. Overall - very pleased with our 2 -one night stays. Will gladly stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cruise queen Clean, comfortable & close to airport
Used by priority points and received the same great service I am used to. This is the first time I used my points and I wondered if I would be treated differently as I was not a "paying' customer. But we were pleasantly surprised. We were picked up by the hotel shuttle - super friendly bus driver - warm welcome and good "first impression" for the hotel.
Our room was automatically upgraded and the kids loved the "surprise treat bag" we received as platinum members.
Breakfast was delightful.
Only drawback is there is not too much in close walking distance - but we did walk to dinner to the IHOP (10 min walk); and passed drug store, dollar store and walgreens on the way.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

Place was clean and looked new. Very close and easy drive to rental car return and walk to terminals at Ft. Lauderdale airport. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had a 6 am flight and were leaving at 4:15 am for airport. I asked the night before if we could get a couple bananas and yogurts for our 2 year old and it was no problem. Saved us from stopping somewhere that morning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Impecable Location not the best but great staff and super rooms.
Not the best looking place from the outside, nor the greatest location, but more than made up for that by exceptional staff and very clean room, bathroom and linens. Internet and phone facilities most acceptable. Range of breakfast choices very good indeed. Brilliant, very helpful reception team, who went out of their way to help.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leap60 Last day of vacation after Cruise
My husband and I stayed here after returning from a cruise and before flying home the next day. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel of pretty new and very clean. We used the pool area which was secluded and peaceful. My husband used the exercise room and was pleased with the setup.
The location was somewhat odd but it was safe. By odd, I mean that there was really nothing around for dining or entertainment. We walked down about 2 blocks to a diner/ ice cream place which we enjoyed for lunch. The woman working the desk that evening was very helpful. She informed us about going to Fort Lauderdale beach. She called a taxi for us ( $ 20 one way with tip) and we were there in 20 minutes.
We walked the beach and ate dinner outside at the Drunken Taco fight on the Main Street by the beach. Fun for people watching.
The next day we took the hotel shuttle to the airport. The driver was super friendly and prompt.

The area of the hotel is not the most desirable. Many empty buildings surrounding hotel, but the staff made up for the shortcomings in the area.. Very helpful and friendly. Were willing to go above and beyond. Enjoyed the complimentary shuttle to Kikis restaurant in their sister hotel crown plaza very good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Travel buddy Perfect night
I checked in after having my early morning flight canceled and my evening stand-by flight delayed and overbooked. My luggage was sent on to my destination, but I was left behind at the airport. I had no idea what to expect when, at the last minute, I booked the Ft. Lauderdale Airport South Holiday Inn Express. I was just happy to have a place to sleep. What a surprise! The hotel looks as if it were just opened- sparkling clean and decorated in a neat, contemporary European manner. The evening front desk staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. He offered me a toothbrush, toothpaste, and even deodorant! The room and bathroom were immaculate and the bed was divine. There were even bed pillows embroidered with "Soft" and "Firm." How's that for choices? The free Continental breakfast was just what I needed. The free airport shuttle was quick and the driver helpful. Thank you, Holiday Inn Express, for turning what started out as a stressful end to a vacation week, to a surprisingly sweet and restful stay.
