Sketchy “guests” and dirty rooms


November 08, 2020


The first room we checked into was gross and dirty,the second room was better but not towels! This was just a quick over night because we didn’t want to drive to key west in dark. There were a lot of very sketchy “guests” that we encountered in stairwells and elevator. The fitness room was nice, but nothing to sanitize the machines and weights, the water fountain machine was empty and no cups no wipes, no paper towels., no way to sanitize anything!!! The laundry room had someone’s various pieces left behind and on floor. And the hotel smelled like smoke, everywhere, and the various “guests” were all hanging out front of the front lobby door smoking....
We were supposed to use this hotel on our return but we have cancelled and found other accommodations

Clean rooms, Airport shuttle service communication needs work


November 03, 2020


Great location and clean and comfortable rooms. Only gripe I had was regarding the shuttle service. I ended a trip after 10 p.m. and there are not too many hotels near the FLL airport that offers complimentary shuttle pickup during this time. I called ahead and asked about the schedule of the shuttle before I even booked. I was originally told that airport pickup was “on demand,” when I called they would come. Going back to the airport, the shuttle leaves on the hour. So to my dismay, I called them at 10:25 p.m. to request for pickup. I didn’t get to the hotel until 11:40 p.m. I spoke with the front desk person (a guy) TWICE and he assured me the shuttle was on the way. When I spoke to him the last time and he told me 10-15 minutes, I told him is that more like 20-30 minutes? I just wanted a more approximate time because it was pouring down rain and windy that night, making it a bit uncomfortable to stand under the canopy waiting all that time when I could have been inside. Apparently there was a shift change after 11 p.m., and the new guy didn’t know anything about me being picked up from the airport. When I got to the hotel he was nice and he apologized and informed me that the manager was informed about the situation. I would stay again only because of the location, the cleanliness of the rooms, and complimentary airport shuttle service, but there needs to be better communication between the front desk clerk and guest regarding pickup times, instead of just telling them anything. I shouldn’t have had to wait over an hour for a van ride that was less than 15 minutes to the hotel.
