"Very good hotel-would recommend it!"

07/07/2018

Very good hotel and facilities very good.Pool is a little bit small but otherwise ok.Staff very good and rooms very well serviced.Breakfast adequate as the hot food can be a little variable-was looking forward to bacon but this only appeared once in our 7 day stay.Had lunch a number of times whilst there and was always very good and tasty!Rooms very large and well equipped. Reception staff were very good overall but only one knew how to get us to Sawgrass mills using a tour company as opposed to a cab! Did have an issue with loud neighbours at 4-5am in the morning once and reception failed to deal with this and we ourselves had to resolve. Overall our stay was very good and a very good hotel but a word of warning with regards to booking rooms on the 1st floor-some of these are right next to the pool without any privacy so would need to keep your curtains/drapes closed at all times!Only one working at the of our stay and a slow one it was at that!

This BW hotel is right on the edge of the main beach strip in Fort Lauderdale. My wife and I stayed for four nights. The hotel had clearly been updated somewhat recently and it looked great. The complimentary breakfast was really good for a hotel that's under $200/night. Ullia checked us in. She was very friendly and welcoming. I'd definitely stay here again--in fact, I'm hoping to do so soon!

Dear Valued Guest, Thanks for staying with us and the encouraging review. It is our privilege to have guests like you.

We stayed here on our last night in Florida after a cruise and Everglades vacation. We couldn't have picked a nicer hotel. Our room opened onto a sundeck which overlooked the pool. The room was very comfortable and the a/c was amazing! Sometimes you get a room where the a/c doesn't really cool the room or it smells funny or makes awful noises....this a/c did its job! The hotel was maybe a block from the beach and it was a beautiful beach. After playing in the pool for a couple of hours we walked to the beach and continued to frolic there. It was neat to see areas cordoned off to protect buried sea turtle eggs. Ya don't see that in Ohio ;-). The complimentary breakfast had great variety and was very good. Parking is not free but it's comparable to other hotels nearby and the garage is attached to the hotel. This was a very enjoyable stay.

I my family and I stayed here for a night before our cruise. We arrived at 1p but couldn't check into our room til 3. We had lunch there at the hotel and the food was decent but not as good as our server Rosie. She was great. The hotel staff was mediocre at best and extremely slow with the check in process. The rooms were decent but nothing that would make me choose them again. Parking garage was extremely small and crowded and difficult to get in and out of. If we ever go on another cruise from Ft Lauderdale we will be trying a different hotel for sure.

The location of the beach was very nice, right around the corner within a 5 minute walk. The pool is a nice addition for those who do not like to swim in the ocean but want to cool off. Food is phenomenal for a hotel! Loved the salads and the chicken tender meal! We had 22 high school students and the staff was tolerable and pleasant. They were also helpful when trying to entertain our group! Would visit again given the opportunity!

On yearly vacation to FL, return trip to Ft Lauderdale as well, thought this spot was oceanfront or oceanview but wasn't but that was okay its located on a short walk or stumble from Ft Lauderdale beach park. Breakfast was tasty with enough options to cover different tastes. In house bar was great nice beverages not watered down, bartenders were friendly and cool. Cold infused water is available daily in the lobby which wifey loved. Oceanside Inn is nice and clean, staff was warm and friendly and attentive, everything worked in room , even had usb ports beside which was cool. Soft towels and nice soap, cheapest parking in area, if you return late you have to use underground parking but lots of light. Cookies upon check in too. Overall cool surprise, good spot, saved few $$, will definitely consider return stay.

"Financial headache"

19/06/2018

The two stars are only for the look, location and breakfast of the hotel. I was charged an authorization charge before my stay even though it was booked under pay when you arrive. There is a 250 dollar which is outrageous. Resorts dont even charge that much. They roped of 1/3 of parking and hotel staff or guests didnt know why and you have to pay daily for parking. The worst part of our stay and the reason they deserve no stars was at checkout time I discovered we were charged twice for our stay. When told to the finance manager we were told she didnt see it on her end and we should take it up with our bank. Between the authorization charge, 250 deposit, and being charged twice this place is a nightmare. Disappointed because its actually a nice hotel in a nice area. Just cant deal with all the charges and them not taking responsibility.

"Great Breakfast and Great stay"

15/06/2018

My family stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. We had a great stay, the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, the beach was a two minute walk away, the shower was HUGE and the breakfast was really good! There was scrambled eggs everyday and a different variety of hot meats each day, waffles, fruit, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, pastries and juices. The only negatives were that one elevator was out of service so you had to wait a bit for the elevator but since we were only on the third floor we just took the stairs most of the time. And the parking garage was having some maintenance so you had to park below ground but that was no big deal for us.

We recently returned to Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn for a 4 night stay after our cruise on Allure of the Seas. We love many things about this Hotel, mainly, the staff. Nicole, Ullia, Gloria, Cesar, Rose, Leila, Josellis, Carolina, and many others. We want to thank Ms. Trevienne Barrett who makes everything go smoothly and who made our stay very special. She and her staff are a great asset to this hotel. The hotel is within walking distance of the Fort Lauderdale Beach. They provide umbrellas and beach chairs. Their complimentary full breakfast is excellent. Eggs, omelettes bacon, sausage, ham, fresh fruits, cereal yogurt etc. I could go on and on and oh yes the fresh waffle machine! There is a nice pool and also shaded areas to sit in with umbrellas and tables. A small restaurant and bar is on premises. The food is very good and reasonably priced.The restaurant staff was attentive. There is a separate sunning deck on the second level. The hotel is clean and inviting. The Fort Lauderdale Sun Trolley runs right in front of the hotel. It is an easy walk along the boulevard to all kinds of restaurants. Also, the Jungle Queen riverboat is within walking distance for cruises. We love their evening dinner cruise but that's another review. We would recommend this hotel if you want a reasonable priced hotel within walking distance to the beach and includes all the amenities I mentioned. We will definitely return!

"Good deal at the beach"

13/06/2018

I just read the recent negative review and have to say this was not our experience at all. We usually stay at Marriotts or Hiltons but have stayed at a few Best Westerns in the past 2 years with good results. Since this hotel was less expensive than other beach hotels and the parking rates were lower, we booked a room for 3 nights. Although the hotel is on the older side, it was nicely renovated. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we had no problems with housekeeping. Breakfast selections were good. We liked the location which was close to the beach, a stop for the water taxi, and the main beach restaurant and bar attractions. The only thing that would have made it better is if there were a umbrella and chair rental service on the beach close to the hotel.

"3 words: DON'T STAY HERE"

13/06/2018

My husband & I stayed for 3 nights. We are not, by any means, hotel snobs but this place is run-down, shabby and worn. The rooms are small, the bathroom is small. Best Western has really gone down hill. We have stayed in better, nicer Motel 6's. And housekeeping is pitiful. We removed the privacy hanger from our door & went to breakfast at 8:30-9:30. From 9:30-11:30, we were at the beach, again with no privacy note on our door. At noon, housekeeping knocked on our door while we were showering, I told them we would be out of the room at 1:30, for the entire day, and please come back, if they could, at that time. When we left, they were cleaning room 302 & we personally told them again, we were leaving for the day, please clean our room, provide new towels, etc. They said yes. At 11:00 PM, we returned to our room. No bed made, not one clean towel, no soap! When I called the front desk, we were told housekeeping said there was the privacy note on our door the entire day. BOLD FACE LIE! Again, with all the other hotels in the area, please do not even consider the Best Western Plus!

Trevienne B, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn, responded to this review
Hello Molly, Allow me to apologize for the issues you experienced with housekeeping. If you change your mind and decide to stay with us or any Best Western again please understand that we take guest privacy very seriously and if and when our guests decide that they would like to have their room cleaned we always recommended that they contact the front desk or housekeeping for assistance. On behalf of the management team I do apologize for the issues you experienced. Trevienne Barrett, Front Office Manager

I stayed at the Best Western Plus just off Ft Lauderdale Beach as part of a Delta Vacation for three nights and was pleasantly surprised. First, the included breakfast buffet is very good with good variety and a few hot items are changed each day but the best part is the excellent FRESH waffles that you make in about 3 minutes with a variety of toppings. The area is indoors with a pool view and always clean and well presented but please tip the hardworking young ladies who keep it this way. Secondly, if you go out the front door to the left and behind the hotel and make the first right, there is an access point for the beach and beach park with volleyball nets and further down for kids slides, etc. but the beach is enormous here, plenty of room for all (If you want a quiet almost private walk on the beach, walk to the right past the Marriot towards the inlet to Port Everglades). Third, the location is excellent as you are a 10-15 min. drive to the airport and Port Everglades so if you have an extra day or two and want a good value, by all means stay here. In addition, you are at the southern most end of the strip and easy walking distance to the Bahia Mar yacht basin where you can take the famous Jungle Queen for a day sight seeing or evening dinner cruise-one of my all time favorite things to do. If you walk north on the beach side (recommended due to traffic pattern) and cross over by the Swimming Hall of Fame, there are several fairly reasonable places to eat along with the tourist traps and bars. There is a decent pizza place on Las Olas next to the Elbow Room Bar. Finally, the room I was in was small but very clean with 2 comfortable beds but I was hardly there. There are no views worth speaking of here but on the second floor there are tables with umbrellas one level up from the small pool which offers a nice place to eat or read. Overall, the staff is very pleasant and helpful but if you rent a car, they hit you for $ 16 a day to park in their garage so if you are only staying a day or 2 and not traveling, a cab may be cheaper. Wi Fi was good but did not eat at the restaurant or use the pool but if you are on a budget and only staying a couple of days and want a good location a 3 minute walk to a very clean beach, this hotel can not be beat. Enjoy!

This hotel is surprisingly pleasant. It was just before the summer break and therefore it was not too busy. We were allowed to check in earlier. The room is reasonably large and very clean. The location is very good - within easy walking distance to the beach and the river cruise (Jungle Queen) jetty.

Things needed fixing. Safe was broken. Bathroom was large, but there wasn't any counter space for even a tooth brush. We had to keep our toiletries on the nightstand. Couldn't control the AC direction. It blew directly on the person trying to sleep. Very hard to get in and out of the bed. There was only about 7 inches of space between the wall and the bed. Didn't live up to a Plus rating.

The hotel wasn't bad but it wasn't the best. My family changed rooms 3 times due to rooms being dirty. They were switched without a problem. Hotel close to the cruise port, beach and airport.

"Our pre-cruise hotel !!"

27/05/2018

We stayed here for 1nt prior to our Princess Cruise. Loved the location !!! You are just a short walk to the beach and lots of restaurants in the area. We walked about 15 min and ate at Coconut Restaurant....so good ! From the airport you are about 15 min depending on traffic and about the same to the pier. We took the shuttle from the hotel to the pier and the cost was USD $25.00 for 2. Found this worked better than a taxi simply because you go over a bridge that may need to open to let a boat pass....sitting in a cab....the meter is running ! The staff was pleasant and the buffet breakfast was good. A couple of notes to mention.....the bed was not at all comfortable and the fire alarm didn't go off, but beeped about 6 times, every hour ALL night. We mentioned it to the first desk staff at checkout, so we are hoping that was fixed. We couldn't seem to get the temperature in the room comfortable....either we were too cold or too hot....one extreme to the other. That said, overall we enjoyed our stay and would happily stay here again.

Hotel is nice avoid the front desk staff and it's great. Check in was horrible they place 2 150 dollar holds on our card. Front desk staff is rude and untrained and incompetent. The pool closes at 8pm! Ok now the good. Breakfast was excellent! Breakfast staff was great and so was the bartender. The rooms where spotless clean beds comfortable. I will say the best shower in a hotel I have ever had!! Partial ocean view from our balcony close to beach. Owners should be proud of the property overall. If it wasn't for poor check in and front desk issues this hotel would have had top marks for everything!

01/05/2018

I had booked a room for Saturday, April 14th, the night before our cruise. Since we ended up having drive instead of flying, we did not arrive until 9:30 pm Saturday night. I had phoned the hotel a couple of times to make sure this was noted on our reservation and we were able to check-in without any problems. Cookies at check-in were a nice touch. The lounge/bar area is spacious and I appreciated being able to get ginger ale for a friend who felt sick in the morning (nerves and stress - he was fine later). Internet worked just fine. Breakfast had a nice variety and lots of tables. Secure garage parking with parking spaces big enough for a van. Room was clean, beds comfortable and I liked the color theme in the room. I was happy how close this was to the beach and to the cruise terminal! There was even a Walgreens (with parking) on the way to the cruise terminal, which was handy as I forgot to pack shampoo & conditioner.

And Nina was the first employee I saw in the morning, we were tired from our trip and she was wonderful she took care of my luggage she gave us breakfast and gave us the password for the internet then right after that we met Ullia Felicien !!! She was also very helpful she checked us in early. The next morning she also helps us with our luggage and our tags for the cruise ship. The breakfast in this place is wonderful but the service from these employees are the best top notch.. And the rooms are remodeled so nicely with beautiful turquoise colors and the bathrooms are clean white sparkling .. Thank you so much for all your help.

Stayed at the Best Western for a 3 night getaway. We spent a lot of time around this beach/area back many years ago, so was nice to visit again. Really enjoyed the stay overall. We had a sundeck room, which was really nice. It was great to just step out of our room and grab some chairs and sun, and walk downstairs to pool. Our room, in general, was fine. The AC was very cold/nice. Bed was comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised how quiet our room was (not a lot of noise from anywhere, even outside on sundeck). I could nitpick things about the room, but it's just small things - nothing that affected our stay in a major way. We didn't get a chance to do breakfast (we were out early / hit Lester's on SR84), but it looked like a nice setup - and as part of the stay/price, a nice plus. The pool was nice. Decent sized, very clean. Pool water temp was cool (probably not heated), but was "perfect" for the outdoor temps we had. We got drinks from the bar, which were great, and received great service. A+. The location, in general, is excellent. The beach is just behind the building a bit/short walk. The main strip is a just a short walk as well. Lots of great shops, bars and eateries. Walking at night was interesting - saw all kinds of characters and happenings (as is typical with most beach locales). Felt pretty safe overall - just be aware of the surroundings. Parking was fine, but pretty tight. Once we got the hang of it, and how tight getting in/out and parking spots were, we were good. We always like to self-park if we can/don't care of the valet situation (as most hotels on the beach are), so we were all good with this. Overall, we had a great stay. We would definitely recommend the Best Western. Great location, service, and price.

"Almost Perfect Experience"

21/04/2018

This hotel was perfect in almost every way! My two friends and I came for a week away, staying Monday through Friday. The Best Western was within walking distance from Las Olas Boulevard, which was a huge plus, as well as a short walk away from the beach! It was very reasonably priced. We loved the pool and the option of sitting down by the pool or up on the upper deck. The breakfast buffet was exceptional. We all have allergies/food intolerances and we had no issues finding food we could eat. The only issue we had with our stay was when the housekeeper left our door propped open when we went down to the beach. She had finished cleaning and forgot to take the doorstop out so our room was left open to the public for anywhere between five minutes and two hours. We were very upset since we all had valuables in the room (laptops, iPads, money, medications, etc.). Nobody at the front desk really seemed to really care when we complained. This was the only less than perfect experience we had with our hotel. Hopefully this doesn't happen to anyone else in the future!

16/04/2018

This is my first time ever writing a review, so my experience had to have been bad for me to be writing. Horrible experience!!!! The hotel was dirty, floors, furniture. We paid $28.00 a day to park in the garage and the garage was not large enough to accommodate all the cars and the parking spots were to small for any type of SUV. We went to park the car at night, the garage was full, so we had to park illegally. We went to the front desk to complain and nothing was done. We had reservations for 5 days, checked in on Sunday and checked out early on Tuesday morning. It was to stressful to stay another day.

Trevienne B, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn, responded to this review
Hello Kath, Please accept this reply as an apology of how your stay with us went, Our hotel has two levels of parking with plenty of space and it being a private property there is no such thing as illegally parking. I will ensure the housekeeping manager receives this feedback of the hotel cleanliness and how it affected your stay with us. I would appreciate a call from you directly in order to maintain your loyalty to the Best Western Brand. Thank your for letting us know how your stay went, as there is always room for improvement in whatever we do. Best, Trevienne Barrett (Ms. T) Front Office Manager

We were upgraded to a room with a view of the ocean, which we appreciated. The hotel appeared to have a lot of guests, but was surprisingly quiet. The free breakfast was excellent. The bar/restaurant provided excellent service and food, in spite of there being only one person working the floor, and one person in the kitchen. Although we didn't swim in the pool, it was a nice place to sit in the evening for dinner and drinks. The front desk staff were smart and helpful. The location right beside the beach is great. We will stay here again.

We were here for two nights....two rooms for family. Excellent service at front desk... friendly and very helpful! Rooms were great...beds and pillows wonderful. Would definitely stay again! No airport transfers which would have been nice, but they would call a taxi for $25. We used Uber for $20.

Another fantastic place to stay! So close to the beach, super friendly and helpful staff, and a yummy full breakfast to boot! I would recommend this hotel for sure. We will be back. Ullia at the front desk made our stay memorable by allowing us to check in early, even letting us have breakfast before we could get a room. You can walk to the beach from the hotel in about 2 minutes or less.

"Worst experience!"

1
30/03/2018

I was extremely disappointed with my stay. First I was given a room outside of the building by the pool. ( the one looks like a maintenance room with curtains down). I asked whether there was another room, the receptionist said no they were booked solid. Then I walked in, the curtain rod dropped on my head, the light was not working, and the door can't be latched. People were still by the pool at mid-night. When I insisted that I can't stay in a room where there is no basic safety guarantee, they magically found me another room in the building. In the new room on the 2nd floor, I can lock the door but not the balcony door. Had to call someone again to fix it. My colleague who stayed in the same hotel also had a bad experience even just trying to make a phone call out. Took her back and forth several phone calls to be able to make a local call. Our conference finished at 12h30pm so we inquired whether we can have a late check-in and the answer was no. No flexibility at all. The breakfast has a sign as indicated in the photo ( apples haven't been washed)...overall I will not go back again and not recommend to anyone.

Stayed here with my two teenagers while we toured local colleges. Price was reasonable. Hotel was within walking distance to the beach and a handful of restaurants.

This was our second visit to this hotel and we were never disappointed! The rooms are clean and the breakfast in the morning is great, which is included in the room price. We were there a few days before our cruise and after the cruise. Unfortunately, due to a snowstorm at home our flight was cancelled and because of spring break it was hard to get a room for another night. Ullia Felicien from the front desk was amazing and went out of her way to try to accommodate. She also called us the next day to make sure we were able to fly out and if we needed a room. She is amazing!! Also, Rose at the Restaurant was very friendly and she made great suggestions. We will be back!!

This hotel offered easy access to the beach, water taxi, Fort Lauderdale strip, and Las Olas. As a smaller hotel, it was easy to get around. Our rooms were small also but clean and bright. The breakfast buffet was best free one I have ever had. Fresh, fluffy eggs and lots of variety. We stayed 5 nights and each morning there was something slightly different as well as the great basics. The staff was friendly and helpful. I hope to return!

Located about a block from the beach and a short walk to Las Olas Blvd. Water taxi is a couple of blocks away. Bus and trolley runs in front of hotel.

This hotel is well situated from a 10 minutes walk to the beach. Rooms are clean. There is a terasse with umbrellas, chairs and beach chairs which is nice, there is a lot of chairs. We were in room 202 there was a lot of noises, this room is just behind the street also we couldn't open the doors to go on the balcony, lock was broken, but even if this door would been okay, we couldn't go on the balcony because of the noises. Also this weekend there was an event with volleyball just behind, this was not the hotel's fault for all the noises, but we stay 2 nights and would have appreciated if they would give us a room in front of the pool instead of back with view on the street at the corner of the hotel. Prices was high with canadian money. But I would like to mention that there is a bistro for lunch and dinner, this was so good. Also the hotel's breakfast was very good.

This was my 2nd time staying at the BW Oceanside. Really it's a nice place but there's not a lot room in the rooms (i.e., not a lot of walking room or storage for your clothes). So, if you are not bothered by that, then this is a great place. The hotel had recently undergone renovations to the main lobby and breakfast area. The food is really good. You do have to pay extra for parking if you have a vehicle. If you are just staying overnight, then this will be a good place. If you are staying longer, I would definitely stay elsewhere. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the beach. I did like that too.

From the time we check in, there is nothing but warmth. They are accommodating and helpful. Nic who works the lounge always has a smile and is helpful.

My husband and I rescheduled to go to the best Western in January prior to a cruise. Unfortunately, due to a death in the family, we were unable to go. I contacted this establishment two days before our expected arrival and explained the circumstances. They were unwilling to give any consideration to canceling the reservation without penalty. I had to pay full price for the room which I did not use.

While it's not exactly on the ocean, it's very close, and I loved almost everything about my stay. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Diamond status scored free parking which was a huge plus. The rooms were sleek-looking, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The internet was speedy. Breakfast was quite decent. The bar had lots of options and the drinks weren't too expensive. I was very impressed by the selection for a hotel of this size. I never had any trouble finding indoor parking. Both check-in and check-out were speedy (just drop the keys off when checking out). Nice pool with both sun and shade. I'd definitely stay again!

24/02/2018

We arrived earlier than check in time because our plane landed earlier. Our room was already ready for us. Check in was easy. Got settled in and had not had lunch yet so we opted to eat in the restaurant, excellent choice. The mahi mahi sandwich was delectable. Our view from the balcony was pretty cool as we could watch planes taking off from the airport. It also overlooked the pool. Pool area was very nice. Decided to take a walk and it was only a block to the beach. What a wonderful beach! Very clean. The waves were way too high to get in the water but we enjoyed walking and picking up seashells. Got a wonderful surprise upon returning to the room of a bag with water and chocolate bars in it since we are Best Western members. Came to dinner time and we asked what was in the area. Not much close but we walked about 6 blocks or so and found the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, what a nice find. The beds were comfy and the room very clean. We stayed here for the night before we cruised. Breakfast was included in the morning and it was a nice choice of breakfast items. Check out was easy. I would definitely stay here again!

"Perfect place to stay"

24/02/2018

There are so many wonderful things about this hotel! I'll get the only not perfect thing out of the way: it's an older property and the room and some common areas show a little age. All that aside, this was a perfect spot. I ran the A1A half and wanted to be close to the finish line - the hotel was about 75 yards from the finish! Plus, it's right on the beach. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful, having my room ready several hours ahead of time (I checked in online). The attached parking garage is small, but I could always find a spot. The lobby area is very nice. I didn't use the restaurant, but the free breakfast was great. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel, and I consider myself to be pretty picky.

"Nice hotel with good amenities"

23/02/2018

We stayed here for the half marathon . Everyone at the hotel was very accommodating. They provided water and granola bars for the runners on their way out in the morning. Hotel is older and some things are a bit worn, however minor. The room was clean , bed was comfortable and staff was welcoming and very friendly. Breakfast had many choices and area was kept clean. Staff continually refilled. Parking garage was adjacent. I wish the cost of parking however was included in the hotel cost. Hotel location was an easy walk to the beach. Would stay here again.

"Nice little hotel "

21/02/2018

Stayed at this hotel for two nights during the Fort Lauderdale half marathon weekend. The only reason I choose this hotel was that it was close to the finish line and reasonably priced. When you pull up the front parking area is small and if there was three cars there already you either need to block the entrance or drive around. Can't enter the parking area until you have your room key . Lobby is bright and clean. Check in was easy, CJ was pleasant and friendly even while he was training a new employee. Third floor room was clean. Plenty of space . Expect the bathroom was really small . I'm guessing this was an older hotel that was recently updated. They offer a free breakfast buffet every morning. Basic bacon, eggs, waffles, etc.. Not a bad place would stay here again if ever in Fort Lauderdale again . The sign about their Tuna salad was funny at least they own that it's canned tuna.

We stayed here the night prior to our cruise departure. Ullia and Rochelle met us at the front desk for check in and were amazing! They were so very nice and friendly. We were hungry, so they stored our luggage and we ate at the bar and then finished our check in. They go out of their way to take care of the frequent BW travelers. We had a corner room with an ocean view balcony. Being right on the beach wasn't important to us, so this place fit the bill perfectly. Room was very clean. Bar waitress was very nice and good at her job. Had lunch and dinner there. Both very good. Breakfast was the best self serve breakfast I have had at a motel ever. Well cooked and well presented. After returning from our cruise, we stayed the night as well. We got off the ship quite early and Ullia and Rochelle again made sure we were taken care of. We spent time hanging by the pool while we were waiting for the same room that we had the week before. Again, it was very, very nice. Great hotel. A little pricey, but well worth it, considering the convenient location to the port, the incredible personalized service and the great breakfast. We will definitely stay here again.

We made our reservation the night before we flew into town, and I was pleased to be able to get the employee rate so last minute! The front desk staff was amazing and very accommodating, due to the fact we arrived at the hotel at 8am...I knew it would be too early to check in. The front desk offered to store our luggage and allowed us to wait it out by the pool until a room was ready. SO NICE! I love that they use Runtriz to communicate with their guests! Everyone was friendly and helpful the entire time we were there. The breakfast offered was above and beyond "the call of duty"...very impressive! My only suggestion would be that the breakfast attendant be a bit more friendly/smiley, and the housekeeping staff pay better attention to floor corners. I would definitely recommend this Best Western Plus if being right on beach isn't a "must".

Hello Dawn, Thank you for the review of our hotel and its amenities. We are always looking for ways to improve communications with our guest and the runtriz is a great way to do so.

While our room was being prepared, we went to the ocean with two complimentary beach towels, came back to fresh baked cookies, some Hershey's chocolate, and a bottle of wine to enjoy.

Convenient to cruise port. Had a cruise scheduled and this was such a good location to drive over and park next to ship. Very nice lounge, bar, restaurant area. Had drinks and dinner. Very good. Recommend this hotel. Also within walking distance to water.

Don't stay at this hotel! It is overpriced for the kind of room you get. Our room was very small. The bathroom was the size of a small closet. Our view was a wall when I thought I was getting a poolside room. There was a lot of noise and door slamming during the night and early in the morning. There was a bright security light right outside of our room that even with curtains shut was annoying. We did not get any restful nights' sleep. Also, they didn't honor my request for a wake up call.

Hello Barbara, Thank you for choosing our location for your choice of stay while in the South Florida Area. Let me start by apologizing to you for the issues you encountered during your stay with us.

We spent two nights here before our cruise and everything was great. Our room was spacious, clean, and I loved that we had a tub. Close to the beach and within walking distance of good restaurants. Cheap ($7 per person) shuttle to the pier. They gave us complimentary cookies and crackers upon check-in. Very good breakfast included. Hotel clerks were very helpful.

30/01/2018

We stayed here a week ago and found the staff attentive and eager to provide the best service available. Laundry given to them before 0800 returned to your room and hung up as appropriate before 1900 !..and at a reasonable cost.....as for the location although no sea views it is literally about a 3 minute walk and you're right on the southern end of the beach. The location is ideal for those wishing to relax in the sun either by the pool or on the beach, the pool is south facing so sun all day and there are not so many sunbeds that you are sitting on each others laps,which cannot be said for other hotels. Shops of all varieties are a short distance away, as are great places to eat. The hotel buffet breakfast was plentiful and varied. The hotel had plenty of parking so yet another plus for this location. It appears that the hotel frontage is being refreshed at the moment however this does not mean noise or mess. The rooms are quiet and well appointed, a relaxing 3 night stay. We would stay again when next in Ft. Lauderdale. Cesar at Reception presents himself and Best Western perfectly, an asset to the company.

Clean rooms, comfy beds and excellent service. Excellent location just steps from the Atlantic ocean. Ullia and Maressa at the front desk were phenomenal angels. They made my daughter and I feel welcome and right at home. I actually checked out of my original hotel and checked into this Best Wetsern Plus because the vibe was so perfect! I arrived from out of state to view a property in the area. The hospitality I recieved from Ullia and Maressa made me fall in love with Fort Lauderdale!! Thank you ladies!! I highly suggest this place to anyone looking for a safe comfortable place.

stayed at this property 1 night before the cruise and 3 nights after ----- older property upgraded --- clean and comfortable rooms ---- good variety at breakfast ---- the eating area is kept nice and clean --- the staff we dealt with were very pleasant and helpful --- however Ullia Felicien was outstanding --- good sense of humor and extremely efficient --- gave great advice of what to do in the area and even booked a tour for us ( we were 4 adults ) --- this property is close to the beach, stop #5 for the water taxi, good eats and a nice market close by ( about 3 to 5 min. walk ) --- will stay again

"Pleasant, Comfortable Stay"

23/01/2018

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our trip around Florida. Although located on busy route A1A, the hotel is in a quiet area yet only a 15 minute stroll to several decent restaurants, including Casablanca Cafe. Right near the beach, on the beach trolley route and very close to the water taxi, this hotel's location is spot on. We had booked a king suite, but on checking in discovered that the one and only suite is located on the first (lobby) floor, with its door and windows literally a couple of feet from the pool. Besides our concern about privacy we were also dismayed to note unbearably loud music and a large group of fairly loud teenagers in the pool. As we had come for rest and relaxation and we discovered that the group would be here for the whole of our stay, we asked for a different room, and Ullia did not hesitate to show us a couple of available rooms so that we could choose whichever suited us best. She also gave us her phone number so that we could contact her (even on her day off) if there were any other issues - a really nice touch - and she went out of her way to make sure everything continued to be ok. As we wanted a room with a balcony we settled on a room with 2 double beds on the 5th floor. The room was comfortable, light and airy; however, on checking out we alerted the receptionist to the carpet which seemed sticky and probably needed cleaning. The hotel has a comfortable on-site bar and dining area. There is a varied menu with items such as small bites, sandwiches, wraps, fish and chips, steak, pizza etc. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. We particularly enjoyed talking with bartenders Mike and Nico who are so friendly and helpful. The hotel car park is on 2 floors, and as a lot of guests were staying before and/or after a cruise, there appeared to be just enough parking; however, due to the pillars and relatively small spaces parking is a bit tight. Overall a pleasant stay.

"This hotel is very clean, organized and comfortable"

The hotel is rather old but it got a face lift; it's near the bus stops, the beach and if you want to walk around, you can; the staff were very helpful; the internet worked well; free breakfast and just the right kind of food; it has a swimming pool but don't swim as it's filled up sometimes; however, my room overlooks the pool and I saw them clean it daily when I was there; the only problem with this hotel is it's after the draw bridge from Port Everglades which could delay you and make you spend more money if you take a cab; otherwise, it's a good place for a pre-cruise schedule.

"Wow! Unexpected great service!"

19/01/2018

I normally stay at The Marriott Harbor Beach or The Ritz but could not get a room and needed to be close to a meeting at The Marriott so I opted to "settle" for the closest hotel which was The Best Western Plus Oceanside. I have to say, the service I received there was no less professional, friendly or courteous than the service I am accustomed to at those larger, much more expensive hotels! From the front desk agents, Rita and Ullia to the bartenders/servers, Mike, Rose and Nico, I can't say enough! Each of them were very helpful, friendly and professional and each of them went out of their way in one way or another to make my stay a very pleasant experience! Rose was funny and delightful, Nico was very helpful with menu selections and nice conversation as was Mike, who even went out of his way to get his own personal charger so I could charge my phone at the bar! I also witnessed them treating other guests extremely well too. To my surprise, the hotel was very clean, comfortable and nicely appointed and the pool area was clean, well maintained and a lovely place to relax. My room was well maintained by a friendly staff of housekeepers and the food from the restaurant was very good as well. Another thing that impressed me was the way the staff treated each other. They all seemed very kind and considerate of one another and seemed to be happy at work - obviously, the owner/management is doing something right - when you take care of your employees, they take care of your customers! If there were any "cons" to my stay and these are not major complaints - it would be that the elevator is extremely slow so you need to allow a couple extra minutes to get up or down and the bathroom door in my room was awkwardly close to the sink vanity - I think maybe the sink/vanity was just too large for the room or could use a sliding door? Neither of these issues would prevent me from going back, however! I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the area with great service and nice amenities!

"Decent hotel, THIN walls "

19/01/2018

Booked on BW points Chose this hotel because it was decently close to the airport and cruise ports. Arrival and check in went smoothly (save for the rude guest who completely walked in on our conversation with the check in guy to ask about parking for his friend). We were given our loyalty gift and on our way to our room. The hotel is old but remodelled, but could still use a REALLY good cleaning/paint upgrade. Room was big and spacious, bathroom a good size and the shower is HUGE with lots of different shower heads (very fancy). The walls are VERY THIN and if there's one thing I know about travelling in the US, it's no one else cares about other guests around them so be prepared to hear their entire conversations, showers, blowing noses, etc. The pool looks nice but it was a chilly night when we arrived so it was not being used. The hotel is a short walk from a delightful deli where you can get beer/wine/snacks and some hot meals. It's on the pricier side but the food is delicious. Would I stay at this hotel again? Yes, but only on points and I'd try to ask for a room with no one next door.

"New Years visit"

17/01/2018

I recently stayed at this hotel over New Years as I was in town for a football game and beach visit. We visit the area yearly and we always stay at this hotel. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Rose the manager. The beach is right across the street, its close to the boardwalk which is great for walking or running. Some of the rooms were a little on the small side however with proximity to beach and boardwalk we spent little time in them. There is a sun trolly stop outside the hotel which takes you up and down the boardwalk. I was delighted to find an array of options at breakfast each day-make your own waffles, fresh fruit, along with vegetarian and gluten free options. This hotel is great if your in town before a cruise as its only a short uber ride to the port or looking for a beach vacation without breaking the bank.

Location is of primary importance to us. Oceanside is very close to the beach and the cruise port. I only wish there was a free airport shuttle. We stayed the night before our cruise and the night after the cruise. There is a refreshing pool with lots of loungers but a swim in the ocean was a must. The walk along the beach and marina was absolutely beautiful. The lounge offered a delicious menu and the service was exemplary! The front desk staff, Ullia and Maressa, were amazing! They secured our luggage and even offered to look after our husbands who were lying by the pool, allowing my sister and I to go shopping until our rooms were ready. Ullia and Maressa were very efficient and loads of fun! They answered all our questions with a friendly attitude. The beds were sooo comfy and the complimentary breakfast and service was awesome! We definitely will stay in this hotel again! Thank you Ullia and Maressa!

We stayed here for the night before our cruise. Great access to beach. Rooms were nice. Wish they would have ability to have roll away bed, but rooms are not big enough for roll away, so I understand not having them. Main disadvantage is that they charge 7 dollars per person to get a ride to cruise terminal. We had a group of 10, so this would have been 70 dollars! No thanks. Booked 2 lyfts for 10 bucks (including the tip) each much cheaper (50 bucks less) to get to terminal. Should consider changing this for large groups. Otherwise had no problems. Nice breakfast.

Stayed here two nights prior to a cruise. Good choice. The price was right and the hotel well above average. Rooms were recently renovated. Nice size. Pool was large. Not the usual best western plus breakfast. Much better than the norm. Bet area was large and also used as the restaurant. Food was very good. The staff was friendly and helpful. They should include a shuttle to the cruise port as part of the price. Many hotels in the area do. I would stay there again.

"Pre Cruise stay. Short walk to ocean beach."

27/12/2017

Rating this hotel is a little complicated. While I do give this hotel an overal rating of 4 stars I have to give the actual room itself 3 stars. The main floor entrance, lobby, staff, lobby bar (with limited menu) and (free) breakfast area is very nice. While we did not use it, the pool area is also nice with plenty of loung chairs, tables/umbrellas. Also a Great place to sit and relax with a drink and look at the stars at night. It is an older hotel and we found the room a little cramped with a king bed in it. The closet was too small so having our cruise luggage in the main room made things feel a little more cramped. The door opened right into a wall (the closet) with a narrow access hall to the main room. The balcony was nice to sit and relax on however I would have preferred a window that opened so we did not have to have the air conditioner running all night. Bathroom was on the small side. Looks like the fixtures have been updated recently. The cab fare from the airport was $18 (Friday evening) and the fare to the Cruise terminal less than $15 (Sunday noon).

We chose the BW Oceanside Inn for one night post-cruise based on the value and proximity to the beach. The pool is clean and refreshing and the rooms were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had an early departure, so we didn't get to experience breakfast, but they did offer an express (to-go) option with a bottled water, fruit and cookies which was very nice. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights pre-cruise. I booked via a 3rd party but emailed the hotel direct several times prior to arriving and always received prompt and helpful replies. All staff members were invariably friendly and helpful. We did have a couple of maintenance issues with our room on arrival which should really have been detected by housekeeping before we arrived but they were addressed immediately and to our satisfaction as soon as we reported them. The included breakfast offered a nice variety of options and the quality was good. I especially enjoyed the fresh yogurt. The location was convenient, within easy walking distance to the water taxi and several restaurants. Overall we felt we got good value for money and would stay again and recommend to others.

I thought this property was Oceanside when actually it is down the road from the beach. You can't even see the ocean from the hotel. That said it is a short walk to the beach. The breakfast had a variety of food, the rooms were large and clean. This is a very busy hotel on the weekends. Many cruisers spend the night before their cruise here.We had to wait quite a while for our room to be ready. It is a bit of a walk to get to any of the local restaurants but there is a bar/restaurant at the hotel. We walked to the Oyster Bar in front of Coconuts which is at the other end of the public beach so it was a bit of a walk. The room next to ours must have been empty and around 11pm the alarm clock started beeping, we called down stair and they came right up and shut it off.

Hotels is having a bit of a makeover at the front This hotel is close to the beach and you can take the trolley to the restaurants just done the street. It is also close to Port Everglades. The bathrooms are small and no room to put toiletries and the elevators are a bit slow.

Hotel is well located in that it is close to cruise terminal, airport & beach. However it is a 30 minute walk to restaurants & shopping centres. However good quality meals are available at the hotel at a reasonable price & there is good restaurant at the hotel next door. The continental breakfast was excellent with the only criticism that you are supplied with paper plates & plastic cutlery which does nothing to enhance the meal. The rooms are spacious well equipped & clean & come with fridge, microwave, tea/coffee making facilities & a safe. The staff were excellent. Great hotel for pre cruise & close to airport.

We recently stayed 3 nights following a cruise. The hotel is located close to the beach - a very short walk . But is unfortunately a bit out of the way, about a 15-20 minute walk, to restaurants & shops. However there is a good trolley service for $1.00 per ride or $3.00 all day. There is a restaurant on site which we used a couple of nights & the food is good. Rose is always ready to help out. The room was a good size, clean with nice amenities. The balcony overlooked the pool & other hotels but no beach view. On arrival our room was not ready but we were able to put our luggage in storage. The front desk staff were all very helpful & friendly; Ullia & Maressa always ready with a smile. Breakfast is included and it is one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had. Particularly liked the fresh fruit. We enjoyed our stay & would stay again. This hotel is good value considering that other hotels in the area are much more expensive

Hotel is clean, nice folks, great breakfast and even laundry area was clean and in good working order. Close to beach and also restaurants on the strip. Lot's of possible activities. They stored our bags because we arrived early before check in. They were very accommodating. We had 3 rooms all very clean and ready and good locations.

This hotel is ideally suited for a short stay before or after a cruise. It is close to the water taxis, and not far from airport and cruise port. Rooms are very nice, very nicely decorated. Could definitely use some shelving in the bathroom, which is huge.

Hotel going through renovations. Looking good. Front desk staff was fantastic - Ullia and Rita. Bar was closed which was disappointing. Very close to beach. Overall would recommend this hotel to others.

We recently stayed at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn on an overnight visit! The front desk supervisor, Ullia Felicien, went out of her way to be helpful in making our stay perfect! We arrived early but she managed to find us a lovely room with little wait. This motel is within a short distance to the cruise ship terminal! The breakfast was great and although we had to checkout at the appointed time, Ullia stored our luggage securely until we were ready to leave. They have a lovely pool and icy lemon water was available at poolside for their guests. The beach is a short walking distance from the motel. All in all, this is a great convenient motel with superior service!

Comfortable, clean Best Western room quality I expect in a GREAT location! Easy walk to beach and restaurants. 10 minute taxi ride to port for cruise ships and 15 minute taxi ride to airport. Perfect for our short overnight in transit. Got to enjoy a little of Ft. L and swim in ocean with no logistical hassles! Front desk gave me pool towels to take to the beach!

"Excellent staff and location"

29/11/2017

To start I spoke with Rita on the phone and she was extremely pleasant and helpful. I checked in and she was at the desk with Ullia. It's been a while since I enjoyed checking into a hotel. They were smiling and welcoming and put a smile on my face. All the staff is happy and helpful. Rooms are recently redone I think but not top notch - lots of patches in the walls and ceiling that were not done well. Breakfast phenomenal and staff there and at lounge fantastic.

"wonderful hotel and staff"

28/11/2017

Location is of primary importance to us. Oceanside hotel is very close to the beach and the cruise port. I wish there was a free airport shuttle. We saw a refreshing pool with lots of loungers but preferred to swim in the ocean. We ordered a delicious dinner in the lounge. Maressa was very accommodating and helpful at check in. The rooms are very comfortable and we plan to return after our cruise.

This hotel is a great place to stay before leaving on a cruise. It is close to the port and the water taxi stop is just down the street. Ullia at the front desk was out standing. I would recommend this hotel, it has a lot to offer.

Pleasant staff and surroundings fine for the cost process at breakfast was unclear as I couldn't see how the hotel would stop anyone having breakfast though our booking costs included breakfast. Reception staff pleasant except one young man who didn't smile and was fine with us waiting 1 and a half hrs for our room having arrived early after travelling 24hrs !

I arrived and was charged $55 for sending a box of diapers ahead of me. The manager screamed at me and said, "if you don't want to pay, you can just leave, just go on.." as I was holding a crying baby. The fridge dint work, the stopper to take a bath didn't work and the carpets smelled. They were absolutely HORRID to deal with, Stay away.

We recently stayed a few nights at the best western oceanside inn. The location is great you are quite close to the beach. This property is starting to show her age. The carpet in the hall ways really needs replacing. Over all the rooms are nice. The pool area is tiny but does the job. The continental breakfast is awesome. They have lots of choices hot or cold for you to enjoy. There is a small bar and snack stand right off the lobby. The location and the breakfast are the best part of the Best Western Oceanside Inn.

12/11/2017

In Fort Lauderdale for a conference at a nearby hotel and opted to stay here instead. The price was much more reasonable and the free Internet and breakfast were a big plus. Internet was a little slow but the room was comfortable. There is even a tiny deck outside my room. Although Internet access was not available on the deck, it was a pleasant place to relax (not much of a view though - just another hotel). Check-in and check-out were both quick and pleasant as was the ability to check my luggage during the day. Easily and quickly accessible by Uber from the airport.

When I arrived, there was a person checking in next to me having a disagreement about swiping their card for a deposit. The woman checking me in seemed distracted as the guy next to me had 3 employees involved. Got to my room and immediately noticed the musty smell in the room. The floor was old tile that had many cracks or chips and needed replaced. The rug between the beds was stained. The wall in the bathroom had a piece of rusted rebar showing through. The free breakfast in the morning was very good, probably the best part of the stay. A variety of hot and cold foods, fruits and drinks.

04/11/2017

I was in town for a friend's wedding and it was my first time in Fort Lauderdale. The front desk employees were SUPER helpful. I got to the property around 7 in the morning (9/29/17), due to an early flight. I couldn't check-in until 11am (which was awesome because most hotels don't start check-in until 3pm~). The young lady working the desk in the morning gave me a breakfast ticket to grab something to eat although I hadn't technically checked in (big thumbs up). The ladies at the front desk gave awesome recommendations of places to see while there and, without a vehicle, awesome economical means of moving about the area. When I got in to the room, the beds were so soft I quickly fell asleep due to my travels. The bathroom had PLENTY of space for our party of 3. This property is right near the beach and a few fun places to eat nearby, just a quick walk or Uber away. BIG Shout outs to the two ladies who helped me at the front desk (the morning & the graveshift)! This property is fortunate to have them! Will stay here again if I'm ever in Fort Lauderdale

Stayed one night pre-cruise. Room was clean and conveniently located. Pool was nice and the free breakfast was also good. Would recommend for anyone staying in the area.

The rooms were really nice and the staff was very helpful, was really surprised as to the size of the room and the bathroom was much larger than most hotels. We were able to walk along the beach after the rain stopped, walking along the walk area and towards the town area. My sister and I ate dinner in the lobby bar area was very good actually more than either of us could eat, with breakfast the next morning being very good.I would highly recommend the hotel. The only thing that I found totally different was that if you drove you had to pay to park in their parking deck.

They were asking me daily how i was feeling, they were making sure I was getting fluids and the waitstaff even got me food and called me when it was ready. the last day for my flight, i wasnt able to connect to uber and they found me a shuttle to get me to airport.

They were so helpful with recommendations for restaurants & helping us obtain information on various things to do & answering our many questions. They have a great pool (if you have a sensitivity to chlorine-as I do-they use bromine), free breakfast buffet that is large & very good, and a house menu in the bar that is very good & very reasonably priced. The rooms were very nice, comfortable & clean. I highly recommend the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn & would stay there again.

17/10/2017

First, let me say that the service was great and very friendly. Ullia and Fabian were AMAZING!!!! I booked this through Priceline, and it was rated at 3 1/2 stars. This property is definitely not a 3 1/2 star property - more like a 2-2 1/2 stars. Maybe because renovations were recently done, and/or the reviews are from travelers staying one night before or after a cruise which created this rating. It's not a place to stay for longer than that. I've stayed at hotels of this star quality before, and this one is definitely not of that caliber. There were three computers for use and only one worked; the internet was EXTREMELY slow; the satellite TV didn't have all the channel that were listed in the hotel directory; there was one elevator for the entire hotel which was very slow and the exterior was dumpy/worn looking. I wasn't impressed at all.

The Best Western Plus at Oceanside is very nice. Stayed in a King with Balcony. Had a angled ocean view in between a couple of other buildings. My hotel room looked like it has been updated recently. Same with the lobby, breakfast area, and restaurant. Everything was clean and vibrant. Could use a little more attention to detail on the finishes (wall paint on the bathroom trim, inch wide caulk gap between wall and granite countertop, cable channels cutting out periodically). Really close to being perfect, but just a few minor issues. Hotel also was just a short 100 yard walk in between a couple condo buildings from the Marriott Conference Center (in case they are sold out or looking for a cheaper option).

Stayed one night at the BW before our Sept. cruise. Hurricane had just went thru Ft. Lauderdale the week before, however the property was clean and you wouldn't have know except for the debris street side. Property was recently remodeled and in great condition. Front desk staff was exteremely friendly and helpful with questions regarding the area. Breakfast was plentiful and hot. I like the waffle makers a lot. We only stayed for one night, but I would definitely chose the BW again if I am in the area.

"BEST HOTEL AND STAFF EVER!!!!! (BEST WESTERN OCEANSIDE INN IS AWESOME!)"

5
03/10/2017

Usually when I stay in Fort Lauderdale, I stay at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort, which is right around the corner from the Best Western Oceanside Inn. When I booked my trip, there were not rooms available at the Marriott, so I decided to book a room at the Best Western because I love this end of the FLL Beach. Well I truly do not regret that choice!!! From the moment I confirmed my reservation to the moment we walked into the front doors of the hotel, the staff was beyond wonderful! Ullia and Richelle greeted us with smiles and personality beyond! We arrived at 10am, knowing that our rooms would not be ready by that time, but Ullia said, "Hey, I remember speaking to you! We talked about putting you in room 517!" The fact that she remembered that conversation - knowing that she deals with many guests - blew my mind! They told me that the room wasn't ready, but we could wait and have some breakfast! Well, the breakfast did NOT disappoint. It was awesome. It was as if we had stepped into a breakfast buffet - BUT IT WAS FREE! LOL. After breakfast, we decided to walk to the beach and Ullia offered us beach chairs, a beach umbrella and towels! (Remember - no resort fee. ALL OF THIS IS FREE) Upon returning, our room was ready and let me just say, the room DID NOT DISAPPOINT EITHER! Nice comfortable beds. Full size balcony with chairs overlooking the pool! Big screen television. Beautiful bathroom, fully stocked with thick towels and washcloths. Air conditioning worked GREAT! Every morning the breakfast was on point. Bacon, Sausage, Sausage Gravy and Biscuts, Eggs, Cornbeef and Hash, Grits, Oatmeal, Fruit, Yogurt, Waffles, Sweet Buns and Bread, Orange Juice, Cranberry, Apple, Hot Tea, Coffee... I could go on and on. Then there is a full bar and dining area with a FULL MENU! The bartender David was the best and on the weekend, there was an older woman who was amazing! The food on the menu, delicious. As if you were in a restaurant. Televisions all over so you don't miss any of the news. The pool was fantastic! Beach and lounge chairs. Umbrellas and a double pool deck. I could go on and on and on, but as an avid traveler who lives in Marriott's and loves the resort feel, I have now had my eyes open to a whole new experience. This hotel ROCKS and I will gladly recommend this hotel to any and everyone. Darlene R.

27/09/2017

Like some other reviews there are some updates that are needed and the elevator is s little slow BUT the customer service is A+. We arrived early after a cruise and received a early check-in. Once in the room we realized we'd prefer a balcony room. A request to the front desk agent Ullia Felicien was quickly honored. She and the rest of the staff including housekeeping were just really great. There's a really good free breakfast, hotel pool, awesome bar and grill on-site. The best amenity is the <3 minute walk to the beach and the motel supplies towels, umbrellas, & beach chairs. There are a ton of "beach resorts " in the area, my advice is to skip them and come here, you won't regret it.

My room had a nice little balcony overlooking the pool, and the food and drinks I had at the bar were really good. Just under 15 minutes from the airport and it was very easy to get a Lyft to go to dinner and to the airport. Also within a half hour walk to a drugstore.

Loved this hotel! Steps away from the beautiful beach. The room was spotless and all plumbing worked great. Beds were very comfy with extra pillows. Shower water pressure was fine. Bathroom lighting was superb for putting on makeup! The pool deck looked sooo inviting but we simply didn't have time to enjoy it as we arrived after it had closed for the night. Staff were very polite, and there was no waiting at check in or check out. Breakfast was tasty and fresh with excellent variety. Room had fridge and micro.

This was a last minute booking and it was a nice surprise. The hotel looks like it has been recently updated with the room, lobby and other public spaces very clean and modern looking. The room was clean, beds comfortable, and internet worked great. The complementary breakfast had the typical items as most hotels, and it was appreciated as breakfast can be pricey in tourist areas. The hotel is also in a great location - only a two minute walk to the beach. The hotel has a parking garage with $15 per day fee.

I stayed two nights here and was very satisfied with the value for the money. The hotel is a quick 3 minute walk from the beach. They have a moderately priced restaurant on the grounds. And offer free beach chair and umbrella for guest use. The decor is a bit dated, but the overall experience was still excellent for the price. The staff was courteous and helpful.

While I have stayed at this property many times in the past...........it always amazes me! The property has gone through a make over inside and out.

The staff was great. But the rooms were way too small for what we paid for. You can get larger rooms for the amount we paid for. We also had some issues with the price of the room.

09/08/2017

I chose this hotel to host my family reunion in Ft. Lauderdale (30 rooms). The group sales manager position changed 3 times over the course of the 9 months that I worked with them to plan the lodging for my event. However, they were all very accommodating and helpful. There was never a lapse in service. Besides being one of the more affordable options on the beach, I chose this hotel because the rooms were newly renovated and in very good condition. Also, the breakfast buffet (which was included) had gotten good reviews (well deserved). The breakfast was very good and had an assortment of hot foods. This saved a great deal in money and convenience. My only complaint was that at check-in we were told that there would be an additional charge per night if there was going to be more than 2 people in a room. I had never heard of such a thing (they were all rooms with 2 queen sized beds). This was not something that was communicated up front, nor had I asked about when I agreed to have my group stay here. The group sales manager tried to explain that this was fairly standard. I've stayed at many hotels and had never heard of such a policy. Besides this hiccup, the stay was very nice. I would stay again.

This reasonably priced location is a MUST! 3 minutes walking to the beach which is clean and beautiful. Full breakfast and clean rooms. I honestly like the upper floors better because of size and location of air conditioner. Ullia & Rita were the ones to turn to for a room change. (Bottom floor rooms pool side were nice but we needed a change) they worked their magic to find us a better room. David rocked the bar! He will know how to get your drinks right! Shower good, need comfortable, pool has shallow and deep end. The upper level rooms have 3 different sets of electrical sockets with 2 SUB ports too! Right by the bed too! I highly recommend this hotel for ease of walking to dinner or the quick 15 minute drive from the airport.

I rated this hotel 3 because it is an old hotel with some renos completed .The bedroom was nice but the bathroom walls in the room I was in need to be updated . The old walls were painted over as was the door . Door should have been replaced . Otherwise I would give this hotel a 4 for the staff, pool and breakfast meal The staff were professional and friendly . The pool was always clean and plenty of towels . The breakfast was great . Kitchen area was spotless and updated and always fresh food ..Also it was a 2 min walk to the beach and approx 5-10 to the boardwalk . Nice location . It is approx 10 - 15 min drive from the Fort Lauderdale airport . I book this hotel through its own reservation office as I thought I would get a good price for the room compared to the booking sites ie: hotel. com etc. . I do think the room was overpriced especially when you have to convert from Canadian funds to American funds . The reservation person at the online booking was female and was very friendly and patient . I would give her a 5 for her patience and understanding . Would I stay there again - yes. I booked this hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor .

Quick check in, nice staff, excellent breakfast, clean and nice rooms. Excellent location, steps from the beach. The only downside was the 15-dollar parking charge per day. For Expedia users caution, Expedia offered the free breakfast as a bonus or special offer and wouldn't let us change the type of room from a two double bed room to a king size bed room because of the "special offer".

not on the beach but a block away, great breakfast and overall very nice hotel. Front desk was very nice and did everything they could to make our stay great. Wish it was on beach but everything else was wonderful.

12/07/2017

The room was not fresh at all. I opened the door and the smell just took my breath away. We had to leave immediately. I tried to open the patio door just to get some air and you could not open it at all. The bathroom was not cleaned. The cost of the room was over rated- 176.85 for room and parking. We left that same day - I suppose to have gotten my refund but no word as of yet. I would not recommend it.

This hotel is so amazing, we loved it! Everyone was so sweet and so welcoming, and we had a great time here. Everyone was so delightful, such as Ullia; the front desk agent. Nico, and Mike; the bartenders. And all of the house keepers!!! The view was purely beautiful, and the beach was very close. We love this hotel and have full intentions of coming back when we visit Fort Lauderdale again. Highly recommend!!!!

Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was ready to help when we needed anything. We arrived in Ft Lauderdale around midnight and were greeted by a smiling face at the check-in desk when we got to the hotel. Check-in was quick and we were in our room in less than 10 minutes. In the morning we ventured off to the beach. It was a short walk to the beach from the hotel. Great experience. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed the night before leaving on a cruise for 8 days out of Port Everglades. The room was clean and pleasant. The breakfast was the usual hotel fare you'd find almost anywhere there's a free breakfast. My only concern is the elevator. There was only one elevator that I saw. It's absolutely awful when people are trying to leave in the morning for transportation to the port.

This little hotel was very nice and very reasonable. It was clean, very nice and rooms updated . It's priced like a 3 star but you get a 4 star worth . Stay in a room facing the pool if you can and higher up. Many families stayed here and there were many people going on cruises . It's close to everything but you have to walk about 15 minutes to get to the main strip where all the action is. Very quiet at night. The pool is small but very clean and nice patio furniture . Restaurant was really good too. The breakfast was good . The beach is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel and it was full of seaweed bc your on a public beach . However, if you walk just 10 minutes your on a nice beach . South beach Miami in my opinion is better.

"Third Time at the Best Western!"

4
22/06/2017

This is our third stay at this Best Western. We arrived early and the staff offered to store our luggage. We changed into our swim gear and walked to the beach. The beach is about a 7 minute walk from hotel door to ocean water. Easy enough to find your way there. Remember to get your towels from the front desk before you leave. BW is right next door to the B Hotel ,you may pass it on your way to the beach. This section of the beach suited us well and we always found a space to call our own. The BW also has a heated swimming pool which is usually not crowded. However, you may want to bring bug spray as while in this area as we were bitten a few times while watching our kids in the pool. Be aware that the wifi is sketchy in the rooms, however, they do have a few computers that guests may use. Also be very aware that the hot water is really hot, so you may want to supervise younger children when they are using the water. We enjoyed a few snacks from the lounge which were pretty good. We also went on the Sun Trolley ($1) to Publix to buy a few reasonably priced snacks and beverages. We also enjoyed the breakfast at BW. They offered many choices (7 - 10:30 am) and had pleasant staff. In the evenings we either walked into town (15 min) for dinner or ordered delivery. The staff at BW are willing to answer questions and offer suggestions. Would we stay here again? Maybe, we love the breakfast and the location!!

"50/50"

14/06/2017

My family of four stayed here the night before our cruise and the day we returned. I was initially disappointed in the fact that they did not offer a shuttle to and from the airport. But I will list some pros and cons Pros: *friendly staff, room was clean and ready for us at check in when we arrived on our first day around 3pm. *Breakfast was the best I have ever seen in a hotel. Anything an adult or picky child would want. Biscuits and gravy, waffles, eggs, bagels and the list goes on. *The day we returned from the cruise we arrived around 0930. We knew our room wouldn't be ready but they allowed us to store our luggage to explore until they called to inform us it was ready at a typical time of 3pm. Our room was ready by 1130am and they called to tell me so. *Walking distance to the beach Cons: *The air conditioner did not work very well. We stayed in a pool side room which appeared to be a more older part of the hotel. It sounded like a running toilet all throughout the night and smelled like mildew. When we turned it down to 66 and it still didn't cool the room, I went to the desk. They sent maintenance and said it wasn't cool in the room because the vents were putting upwards instead of out towards the room. I didn't argue and just dealt with it. *The meal prices at the bar were a little over priced for the quality. *Being a pool side room, there was a constant light shining in our room. The curtains didn't close well enough to block it to allow adequate sleep before we woke at 4am to catch our flight out. *The closest shops or restaurants were approximately 15-20 min walk down the road. Not ideal for walking when pop up storms decide to show it's face!

"doable"

13/06/2017

I stayed at this Best Western Plus Oceanside. I got a CRAZY good deal. BEACH: There is no view to the ocean. I think you could hear the water a little. It really is right at the beach - just a hotel between it and the ocean. You can walk in front OR behind the B-hotel and you are right on the public beach. Perfect. For me, a person with bad knees, it was a short enough walk around the front that you could bring a light "bag chair" and a lunchbox for food/drink. POOL: I enjoyed the pool. It was clean and not crowded when I was there. There are some rooms that open right out to the pool. BREAKFAST: It was the usual continental breakfast at BW hotels. ok - but hey, it's free. STAFF: ALL so very friendly and pleasant. That is there main asset. ROOMS: It was average but cute. I liked it. I had a room that opened out to the SHARED sun deck, which was a great size. It felt like I had a huge personal balcony of my own because it was pretty empty. I loved the sundeck. The only thing is if you are staying on the sundeck, I would not leave the sliding door open while out the room or at night. It seems like people could just wander into your room if they wanted. LOCATION: There are not many restaurants within the few blocks around the hotel. There is a restaurant on the premises, and the hotels on the same block I believe. However, there is a bus stop right at the hotel and for $1 you can get a trolley up the street for a wider variety. CLEANLINESS: Now this was the problem - They do not pay attention to detail overall. The room appears clean at first glance, but you can tell they did not do a thorough job. I could tell that the carpet had not been vacuumed. Also, the tile floor was not mopped in forever it seemed. The surfaces were not wiped off good. There were crumbs from previous people. The "clean" tv remote had food smeared on it. That type of thing. They were so friendly and offered to change my room, I didn't feel like changing. NOTE: I am a little picky about cleanliness, but this did not deter me from staying in the room. They REALLY need to work on that. I went to breakfast twice. Sunday, the lady cleaning the tables was so friendly talking to guests that she didn't notice the dirty tables. There were plenty of tables, but barely any was cleaned off. I went to breakfast on Tuesday and it was the opposite. Different worker. Cleaned off tables. I am not going to say I wouldn't stay here again - I would definitely return if it I came across a good deal.

The Best Western Plus was a perfect place to stay just before heading out on a cruise the next day. I would recommend it 100%! The location was great with just a hop and a skip around the corner to the beach and/or a nice walk down the strip to restaurants and shopping too! The price was great considering this location! I'd stay here again in a heartbeat - whether it be before a cruise or even for a longer visit! the staff was very pleasant and our was neat and clean! The complimentary breakfast was nice too as they offered a bit more for the "typical" complimentary option.

16/05/2017

We chose the Best Western because it was reasonably priced, close to the beach and had complimentary hot breakfast. Let's start with the breakfast! Excellent! Scrambled and hard-boiled eggs , ham, sausage corned beef hash, make your own waffle, delicious fresh strawberries, bananas, oranges grapes, and so much more!!! We arrived at 10:00 a.m. and our wonderful room was ready. We were also given breakfast vouchers and were able to eat breakfast that same morning. The service in all areas of the hotel is impeccable. Special thanks to Miss T, Rose, and Rafael for making our stay more enjoyable. We stayed here 4 nights post cruise and will be back again! The pool area is clean. the small restaurant on premises has many choices. The best part is, it is within walking distance to the beach! They provide, towels, umbrellas and chairs (you do have to carry them). It is also perhaps less than a mile walk to all the restaurants etc. on Atlantic Blvd. You can also take the trolley if you don't want to walk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back.

We stayed here on our trip to the USA. Everything in the hotel was perfect, breakfast was better than expected. My only problem was the cleaning of our room, they always forgot something, bin didn't get emptied or bed wasn't made, towels still on the floor daily. Plus when we went back to our room after breakfast the door was wide open and no one was around except the cleaner 6 doors down. We are always very conscience making sure the doors are locked. Other than this I would definitely stay again as everything else was perfect.

This hotel is by far the best hotel I've stayed at in the Ft. Lauderdale beach area. Ullia, front desk agent, was absolutely wonderful & very accommodating. Andriy at the bar/lounge was very nice also! The hotel has a very inviting resort feel to it! Hotel is so cute, pool is nice & warm, extremely comfy beds, amazing breakfast buffet! They also provide towels, beach chairs & umbrellas to you at NO COST! There is also no resort fee involved either! The beach is literally a 1 minute walk right behind the hotel. The location is absolutely perfect, a short walk or Uber to all the restaurants/shops, and not overcrowded with tourists either! The beach location behind the hotel was nice and quiet, not overcrowded! I highly recommend staying at this hotel! It's definitely much better than the other ones in Ft. Lauderdale beach - I've stayed at the Westin down the street and the customer service and experience was not worth the amount I paid to stay there. The Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn is absolutely fabulous! Thank you so much for the perfect experience! My boyfriend and I will return very soon!

excellent location, great breakfast, and clean hotel. staff helpful and tried to please. non best western shuttle service available but not very motivated. during a heavy rainstorm the driver did not feel like taking my family and me to a mall and quoted an extremely high rate. cabs were cheaper and faster. cudos to bartending staff who made smoothies for my kids (who are hard to please.

Loved my stay this is our 4th time here. Will come again!! Just watch for the charge for the bottled water in the room. I thought it was complimentary. Get Motown music. Easy access to the beach. Enjoyed the stay!

We were down on vacation and we're well pleased with our visit. The front desk was fantastic. Rooms were clean. Nice hot free breakfast. The pool was great also. The location was centrally located. Close to the beach, docks, jungle queen, and shopping. Couldn't ask for much more. I would go there again.

Very nice motel with very friendly staff with Ullia, Nigher and pool . We were able to walk to beach and other eating establishments for a good variety of food. We enjoyed sitting by the pool late nights playing cards and able to unwind after a 10 day cruise.

Nice, clean hotel with comfortable pillows to sleep on and a great balcony that overlooks the city.

"Ok weekend stay"

25/04/2017

We stayed at the Best Western Oceanside for The Easter long weekend. We read the reviews in advance but was shocked to find how run down our room was when we booked a 5 night stay. The king bed had obviously been two smaller beds put together with a hump in the middle forcing you to roll off because of the angle of the make-shift bedding to compensate. We had found multiple hairs in our shower on check in which in itself was very well used with the porcelain wearing off. The pool chairs were outdated with strips for support in all the wrong places. The pool didn't seem to have a cleaner. Overall the hotel needs an update. The breakfast included was the only good thing.

Checked in on a very rainy Sunday after our cruise. Staff was very pleasant and held our luggage till our room was ready. Once we checked in, rooms were very nice. Balcony was a plus! Beds were very comfortable. Pool was heated and actually had a DEEP end. If we had some sun, the sun deck would have been a great place to hang out. Beach is very close and just a short walk away.

Our flight came in at 6 AM, and the staff was kind enough to give us an early check-in. Our outgoing flight was at 10 PM, and they held our bags for us while we went to the beach for the day. Everyone was super friendly. The room was clean, comfy beds, nice hot shower. This hotel was perfect for a 3 day beach get away. Right on the bus line up and down the coast so you don't even need a car. Breakfast was great!

"To Be Honest"

12/04/2017

I usually go on here to read not only what other people have experienced, but to give some insight of what I experienced too. I read a previous review that was good but misleading. I must say I have to agree... to some extent. I had a very similar experience here at this property. This hotel has a great breakfast selection and served its purpose as being one of the better places to be for the Tortuga Music Festival.on the last day, I was in the lobby waiting for my friends ( fellow country music fans) and I was in shock by how the Front desk clerks handled themselves. Im not sure of their names ( sorry) But there was one young lady in particular with glasses and she seemed to be on top of it. Everyone was trying to get the cheap way out and have the same $15 parking. She made it very clear to me on the previous day, that it was going to be $45 so I didnt have a problem with it. I sat there and watch room after room try to give every excuse as to why they should pay the cheaper rate. But she smiled and kept her composure. I would have probably flipped after the tenth person. The other clerk didnt seem like she knew how to handle all the pressure. I overheard her mention she was new and didnt know how everything worked. And though I agree with other reviewee, it can be misleading, but like the clerk said on Sunday, she as well as other front desk staff are new. So i think the girl with the glasses handled security, the chaos of us drunk country folks, i heard of the same ding dong ditchers, ( she said not on my watch) all while being very much pregnant. I'm not sure if she was Miss T but she certainly handled herself like a manager. And between her, Rose at the bar, and the housekeeper with the blonde hair they really deserve the extra praise. I will be back next year for not just the great amenities but the excellent staff. THUMBS UP FROM OHIO!!

"Good but misleading! "

10/04/2017

We chose to stay at this hotel because of its close proximity to the Tortuga Music Festival. We spent over $350 a night and were hoping for the best. We knew that it was going to be a big, busy weekend, but we did not expect for our room not to get cleaned and to keep our car for a couple extra hours to get charged $45! We stayed for 3 days and two nights and on the second day when we returned from a long 13 hour day we came back to our room not having been cleaned. We went down to the front desk and the clerk explained to us that someone had put the do not disturb sign on our room (untrue) and that he would see if someone could fix it. Well it did not get fixed but we did get a few towels because it was late. To add insult to injury, that night our floor was extremely loud with many ding dock ditchers. On the bright side We found out the next morning that those people got kicked out. When it came time to check out, originally we were told by the manager Miss T we had until 11pm the day of check out to receive our car or else we would be charged $15.90 or else our car would be towed. Well when we went downstairs we were told that it would be $45 because we were not considered hotel guests anymore. We had no choice, but to pay it. When asked to speak to the manager about it, the front desk girl told us that the manager was new and didn't know about the protocol for tortuga weekend which is why she told us incorrect information. Ultimately she should have honored the original price, but she did not. We are upset about having to pay $45 to park our car for 4 hours. Upsides: Close to the entrance of the music festival The complimentary breakfast is very good. The bed is comfortable.

The Best Western Plus Oceanside is a wonderful hotel! Rooms are clean and breakfast is included (and quite good!). The hotel has a bar/lounge with some food service, although the hours of the food service are not very late - I think they are open to 10 on Friday and Saturday nights.The hotel is very close to the beach as well as the water taxi stop (#7). I would highly recommend staying here.

This hotel was within walking distance of the beach and some restaurants which was a plus. You had to pay extra for parking. The pool was nice and so was the breakfast. Bathroom was a bit small and no hairdryer available. Balcony was nice to sit on to enjoy the weather, but the view wasn't great.

As is normal practice, upon arrival at the hotel I registered my credit card details with reception. This was the ONLY time my card was registered or used during our entire holiday. Upon return to the UK there was an answer phone message from the card provider which identified suspect transactions on my card. I checked and there had been 2 fraudulent purchases made in Florida totalling over £550. Draw your own conclusions!!

"Under the Radar Gem!"

23/11/2016

Last spring, my wife and I booked a Caribbean cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. And we wanted to arrive in Florida a couple of days ahead of our departure, you know, to get into the mood. But, where to stay with so many choices? So, we began with date availabilities, then with prices, location, amenities and we found our spot. But wait! You say it's a Best Western that had its heyday way back when, right? I must admit that such a thought went through my mind. But, the things that mattered from our list and more were all met by this place: It's next door to the beach and about a five-minute ride to Port Everglades where the cruise ships depart and return. We were quite surprised when we checked in and made our way to our room. The lobby and bar (doubles as a restaurant) were clean and updated. We never used the pristine pool--could have--that's adjacent to the sun-splashed spot where all the guests devoured every morsel of the more than ample complimentary breakfast. The walls of the hallway appeared to be freshly-painted with muted grays on the walls and cream-colors on the doors. Light fixtures appeared to be recently installed. Our room was nicely appointed, with an updated bathroom, plenty of the right kind of towels--the ones that actually dry you off--and comfy pillows and bed. And FREE HBO! All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. So, how good is this place? We cancelled a reservation at another spot and booked one here for when our cruise ship returns to port. Congrats to all of the crew at Best Western Oceanside Inn in Fort Lauderdale!

Get a room away from the pool. For some reason, the music played loudly by the pool for the ENTIRE night. Room was average. Bed was not very comfortable. Average service at the front desk - they weren't rude, but also weren't the most pleasant. The beach is close, but you have to walk a block for access - there is no direct access from the hotel. There is a bar that serves a good selection of food until after 10pm. This is nice, because there aren't very many restaurants in the immediate vicinity. There are no free shuttles, but they offered to help us arrange transportation to the cruise terminal. Uber is quick and cheap from the airport or cruise terminal, though, and was much less expensive than their quoted price for a shuttle.

This gem of a hotel is a $20 taxi ride from the airport and a $7 shuttle ride to the pier. It is on the trolley route to local shopping and a 5 minute walk from a great beach park. The included breakfast has the best selection and quality of any hotel we have stayed in. I am celiac and was abe to find plenty of choices! The restaurant on site has great options and was very good value for the money. Staff were extremely helpful and fun. The front desk staff could not have done anymore to help us enjoy our stay. The hotel was having fire systems testing and finishing up with some upgrading - but it did not negatively impact our stay. We actually could see the beach between the buidlings in our room - 507 - but this is not beachfront - but just as close as you can get. The price was great. We will be using this hotel on our future stays and would receommend this to any of our friends and family.

We had a nice stay at this hotel. We had rooms on the 5th floor, not much of a view, but the rooms are renovated and were clean. The beds were comfortable. It is within walking distance to the beach. They have a nice bar and a great bartender (when we were there). They provide free breakfast in the morning and it was a complete breakfast, lots to choose from and plenty of seating. There was a nice pool area with outdoor seating. Elevators were very slow. Parking is extra but there is a covered parking area. It is small and I noticed some cars parked outside of the parking spaces, so I imagine they arrived after the garage was full. We would definitely stay here again.

Yes, it is an older hotel. But it is in very nice condition, at a wonderful location just yards from the Fort Lauderdale Beach, with very reasonable prices. An easy walk takes to to many delightful restaurants, although the bar food selections at the hotel are meal sized and quite well prepared. The hotel staff are all wonderful, from Rafael who ably assisted us at check-in to Nikko at the bar who ensure the kitchen staff would hang just a bit late to make us some dinner after our delayed flight, to all the house-keeping staff who helped make our stay delightful. The complimentary hot breakfast was fresh and filling. Definitely would stay here again!!

We recently stayed here for four nights and have no complaints. The rooms are on the large side, clean and quiet. Softer type mattresses on the beds (We were in two different rooms). Breakfast was included and was more than adequate. We had a salad with Mahi Mahi in the grill and it was awesome and reasonably priced. The location is perfect. A walk to the beach? less than 5 minutes. Another walk to 2 nearby seafood restaurants 3030 and Sea level..both pricy but worth it. Staff friendly and helpful. A solid 4 star rating. .

At first glance it seems to be a normal hotel. The rooms are clean and the breakfast buffet has a big choice of options. Including fresh fruits. But you have to pay a high fee for parking. During our stay it was 15$ + tax, in total 15.99$ per night!!! And there is no free parking around. The service is not trained and most of them are not professional. We believe you can find a better hotel in this area.

Picked this hotel for price and proximity to the Beach. Pleasantly surprised with the Room (4th floor, overlooking Pool ). Clean and comfortable mattress. Also, the hot breakfast was a nice extra, with egg, sausage, ham, waffles, toast etc. Turn right going out the front door and you are less than 2 minutes walk to the beautiful beach. The walkway along the beach is awesome and , if you keep going, only 15 minute walk to the restaurants at the end of Las Olas Blvd. ( If you have a car, parking is $15 per day.)

"Parking, Breakfast, GR8. Many baths and views Not."

20/10/2016

There are limited upgrades available for elites. The suite would be the 1 room to book for $ if available. It's excellent value. Otherwise demand a pool view room with larger bath. Most rooms look at a building wall and most baths are too tiny for 2 people. It is a fresh-remodel well done. Absolutely put the "do-not-disturb" sign out or housekeeping will be opening your door at 8 am. If the desk is inattentive try another person a little later. The women working the desk are extremely nice and helpful. The free breakfast is outstanding and the garage is great and only $15 (free for elites!). Beach access is arkward. The best feature of the hotel is that it faces the Marriott Resort with it's beautiful private beach and outdoor facilities with open access. (The B Resort behind the hotel is pitiful). Price out the Marriott and this hotel and the savings are substantial usually, especially with parking and breakfast. If they're not substantial choose the Marriott. The best feature at this part of the beach is unlike the huge hotels on center beach, the beach is not a public one across the street. The available Marriott beach next door is outstanding.

Excellent location stay Prior to cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. The hotel is very clean but dated, well maintained. Nice bar/lounge. The complimentary breakfast was very plentiful. Staff was great.

"Great pre and post cruise Hotel"

17/10/2016

I stayed at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn in October of 2016 for one night pre cruise and two nights post cruise. All of the staff I encountered at this hotel were extremely friendly and accommodating, from the front desk staff at check in, Omar and Sirena were a joy to deal with, to the bar staff, Rose ( who makes the best Bloody Mary's in most likely the entire state of Florida, to Tom and also Nico, to the wonderful smiling housekeeping staff on the 2nd Floor. The location of the hotel was great with just a short walk to the beach and access to the Sun Trolley right outside. The rooms were recently redone as well as the rest of the property. Probably one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have every slept in. The room had a great TV with a wonderful picture and decent range of channels. Our room opened onto the sun deck on the second floor overlooking the pool and was complete with sun loungers and a table with umbrella and four chairs. The breakfast that was included was fresh and hearty with a great selection of items to chose from. This was my first stay at a Best Western and I was duly impressed and will certainly chose BW again when travelling. Final thoughts, this hotel is a hidden gem, easily missed amid the larger resort type hotels in the same vicinity, give them a try....you will not be disappointed!

If you don't mind the walk, this is a good compromose between high price and convience. The pool is fantastic, and they have a bar/restaruant (Which I didn't use). The rooms had a fair amount of space, and traveling with four kids that was a real nice benefit. You really can't go wrong for beach vacation on a budget.

We stayed here just 2 weeks ago and loved everything about the stay! The rooms were very comfortable, beautiful colors and very clean. We checked in with ease and was greeted at the front desk by the most friendly amazing woman named Serena, she desreves a 5 star herself!***** Serena, always smiling, always helpful and very friendly and knowledgeable! The patio off our room was the greatest, overlooking the pool, it was my go to spot at night and early mornings with my tea. The breakfast was delicious as well as the lunch menu items..the best sweet potato fries! Awesome drinks served by some awesome bartenders, Niko, Rosa just to mention a couple.

I stayed 5 nights for a business trip. Got a corner room on the top floor with a partial ocean view. I was pleased with the room as it was good sized and comfortable. The view was indeed partial but I still enjoyed sitting on the balcony drinking coffee. The only downside was the air-conditioner was noisy but I turned it off at night and slept fine. The breakfast was pretty good including eggs and meat every day. The bar and grill was great. Be sure to try the Cuban sandwich and the blacken Mahi Mahi sandwich. Close to the beach in a great location. I would recommend and stay here again at the price.

I stayed here for six nights with a co-worker and had a slow rough start upon checking in. Called the front desk, they fixed it within minutes. Raphael at the front desk was overly helpful. Anthony came up to the room and was very pleasant. Leila down in the breakfast bar was very sweet and kind. Rose at the bar is amazing next time you're here you've got to check her out she's funny has been there for 20 years very sweet very kind woman... ask her for " the rose cocktail " next time you're here.. room was clean. .staff was very accommodating.

No complaints really, hotel well kept, very short distance/walk to beach. Also plenty of food & beverage places with in walking distance, except once you eat something at the hotel restaurant you may not want to eat any where else. Actually surprised at quality of food,(only served lunch & dinner), but very good. The breakfast buffet was typical BW setup, little better than other BW I stayed at, but what do you expect for free. it will get you going in the morning if your a cheapy like me, otherwise there was a Denny's a mile or 2 away that was good. Would stay there again, hopefully get there for pleasure & not business again.

"Best Pre Cruise Hotel in Fort Lauderdale!!!! Sept. 2016"

5
21/09/2016

I own a travel agency and do a lot of group cruises and always do a pre cruise hotel, and this one is one of the best I have done business with over the last 23 years. If you have a small group you need to get in touch with Jillian the sales manager and she will take very good care of your group. She met all of our needs plus 2. She is very professional to work with. The hotels in FFL are dated badly, but this one has been upgraded, and the rooms are extremely nice. The rooms feel like they're all brand new!!! Breakfast here is no joke. Best Breakfast buffet we have all been to in a very long time. Items you would never see at other hotels. The pool is really good. The staff gives you towels, so no need to bring your own. The ocean is a 2 min walk and is VERY SAFE. The whole area seemed very safe. The whole staff was awesome the entire time. We stayed 2 days before our cruise. I had 26 in our group and everybody loved it. Rose, the bartender was so much fun and she makes the best drinks. She is full of knowledge for anything you need in FLL. You will fall in love with Rose and want to steal her to work PR for your company ONE OF THE BEST PARTS: John the chef over heard me talking at the bar about how hard it was going to be for me getting reservations for 26 on a Saturday night. He suggested he would take care of my entire group and do a VIP party with all kinds of food and save everybody the 2 hour wait we were looking at. Well he knocked it out of the park. BEST COCONUT SHRIMP ever. Sliders, meatballs, etc. Balloons VIP sign..The works. Thank you John One more person I would like to acknowledge Maria the head of housekeeping. She and her girls were so nice, and as soon as we left the room they were on it and was very sweet. The main reason I'm writing this is to say the entire staff was so nice. They cared about everything we needed. They got us picked up at the airport. Got us shuttle buses to get around town and every time we walked past the front desk they would ask if we needed anything. I will send ALL my clients that need a hotel in FLL to the Best Western Plus Oceanside for as long as we own a travel agency. Thank you so much Jillian, Rose, John, Maria and the entire staff for all your extra efforts to kick our cruise vacation off with a bang!!! Satellite Travel Jamie Eubanks

This hotel is a great location in Ft. Lauderdale. It is about a half block (if that) from the beach.

"Clean and good breakfast but don't use bar/restaurant "

18/09/2016

Our room was very clean and the main desk and housekeeping safe were very friendly. The breakfast was one of the best I've had a hotel. The location is just a few steps from the beach and we had a conference at the Marriott and there is a light path walkway to the Marriott right across the street from the entrance. We attempted to get service from the bar two nights in a row. They have reasonable prices on the menu. The first night the bar tender was rude (older late 50s male) as well as the cook for they ignored us and when we had to interrupt to get attention from their non work related non customer related conversation to ask to see the menu we were treated with an unpleasant interaction so we left. We decided we would give him a second chance the next night and we let him know we would like to order and would be sitting at the tables on the pool deck. We waited 20 minutes and he still didn't come take a drink order. So one in our party went in to let him know we were ready to order. We waited another 15 minutes and then left. We walked to a restaurant down the street and quickly spent over $100 that they had just lost out on in food and drink orders. This bartender needs to be fired or you will have no business. The other place we went to greeted us immediately and we had drinks in hand in less then five minutes.

I must say I was very nicely surprised with my stay at this hotel. The staff was super friendly, the rooms were spotless and the breakfast buffet was a great way to start my day! This Hotel is tucked in between some very fancy high rise hotels. But don't that fool you. This hotel was equally as nice as those big conglomerates for half the price! I would definitely recommend giving this hotel a try.

Spent two nights at the Best Western Plus, Oceanside Inn. My room was on the 5th floor overlooking the pool - 2 queen beds. The room was small but adequate. The AC was awesome, the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was up-to-date and spotless. Breakfast was very good....eggs, ham, chicken sausage, breads, make your own waffle, fruit, veggies, sliced meats, etc. Coffee was good. Leila does a great job there. Hotel was quiet.....several foreign visitors. Parking was easy ($15 / day). Best value on Ft. Lauderdale beach.

Great stay. Not the easiest place to get into; the entryway was too small. Parking was a bit of a pain, and costs $15. Ugh. But once you're inside, nice! The staff at the front desk was helpful and friendly. Everything at this hotel seemed new/updated. We had a quiet room on the 4th floor. The linens and bed were good. The bathroom was small but it was all updated. The shower was fine though not the best water pressure. Nice toiletries, thick towels. I didn't like the toilet paper right up against the wall. The colorful furniture in the hotel and the room was cool, beachy and seemed new. Kudos to housekeeping, everything was very clean. Not many channels on TV. We enjoyed our coffee out on the peaceful balcony. Breakfast was delish. We got a great rate here and would definitely stay again when we're in the area.

Really nice hotel. Looks like it has just been updated and it's really nice and it's really close to the beach. It's just about 50 yards away, we had a good time in the ocean and at the pool. We ate at the restaurant at the hotel and it has really good food. The service was excellent the waitress that helped us (Rose) was really nice and so helpful when we asked questions about the area. The hotel staff was also very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here especially before a cruise. That's what we did. If we come back to this area we will be staying here. We also got free breakfast and it was really good also.

Our room was located on the level that has the big sundeck, lovely! Breakfast was quite ok. We didn't use the pool but it seemed to be very popular. The room had a microwave and a refrigerator so it was very easy to make som pop corn or something else and have a glass of cold wine. It is a short walk to the beach and you can easily take long walks. On the con side: there's not much more in the immediate environment but the beach and other hotels. Of course there are some restaurants and so on but not much, so it depends on your needs if you will like the location or not. The staff were friendly.

This was a really nice property. Rooms were small but were clean and neat. I like the fact that most of the flooring is ceramic tile and just a little carpet as the carpet NEVER gets cleaned. Room was right next to the pool which was GREAT and located close to the in-house bar/restaurant and breakfast area. Hotel has a GREAT breakfast area with a really good selection of food items. Was about the same price as the Choice Hotels in the area and I have had nothing but BAD experience with choice hotels (various locations) recently.

Although we usually go to South Beach, my sister and I decided to make this year's beach trip somewhere a little different. We chose the Best Western Oceanside Inn because of it's proximity to the beach (about a 2 minute walk) and reasonable price ($125/night!). We definitely got more than our money's worth here! The entire hotel was bright, clean and updated. Our room was comfortable and had a nice sized balcony, with what will eventually be a nice view (the hotel next door is being renovated). The breakfast boasted an impressive selection of food and drinks and since the room included a microwave and fridge, we were able to take a little extra for snacks. We especially enjoyed the pool and upstairs lounge area, as well as the bar, which is adjacent to the pool. The staff were all pleasant and helpful throughout our three night stay. We will definitely return!

I stayed here four days during the third week in August. The room was first level, pool side, and only 1/2 block from the beach. The room had two queen size beds, mini fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. It was clean and tidy. House staff, wait staff, and front desk were all very friendly and accommodating. I was not aware of the daily parking fee until I arrived. I wish this information would be more predominant during the booking process. Also, parking spots are tiny, I suggest using a compact car. The buffet continental breakfast was amazing. It had pastries, fresh fruits, eggs, meats, waffle station, and a daily changing menu. It was included with the rental which made this a great value. I will book again.

She has lots of tips to offer the guest who hasn't rent a car. If you ask her how to go to lots of places, she'll teach you with a nice smile on her face. My husband and I went to lots of places by bus or metro spending almost nothing because she taught us how the bus, trolley and metro service works.

"Great BW with fabulous staff"

This BW is on the south side of Fort Lauderdale beach area just below the Beach Park. Close but slightly away for the mad tourist area. It is not beach front but has a well maintain pool(smaller to average sized) and is approx 5 min safe walk to the beach. Being a BW "frequent flyer" our parking charge was deferred. I like being acknowledged as a return customer and they did not disappoint here. This is an older building/motel style BUT is very fresh and well kept. Perfectly clean and open. Staff needs commended. Our room was on the second floor-sundeck level. The front door opens from inside the building but there is a sliding patio door onto the sundeck with several nice chairs, tables and umbrellas. This deck overlooks the pool below. Elevators or stairs accomodate the levels--parking is directly below the facility and the elevator goes to this level. There are 2 washer and dryers there for customers to use. The room was very comfortable; slept well. Great bedding with a very clean but smaller Bathroom. Hot water was no trouble. Refrig, microwave and safe in the room. Breakfast is included and is sufficient. Good choices and dining room was well kept. There is a small bar area in the lobby area with TVs and they serve food there. Fairly good menu-not expansive but Chef John and bartender/server Nico did a great job. The food was excellently. Hamberger was great-loved the steak potato fries. Fish and chips great too. Average Full Bar available. The area: Its an easy walk to the main strip prob 10min. The wide side walk on the ocean side of Seabreeze blvd or A1A is really wide and has been very well kept for several years. Lots of people out walking, jogging and riding bikes(there is a bike lane). It is approx 3 mile stretch to walk the south to north of the Fort Lauderdale beach stretch before you get more into the Lauderdale by the Sea Region. Several Life Guard towers along this stretch. The sand was much cleaner and more white the more north of the main tourist area I thought. Was NOT bothered by street venders at all here. Several typical Souvenier shops on the hotel side of the street. Tons of restaurants-naturally I use TA to help with choices. There are several all along this stretch of varying price ranges. LuLu's which is close to the southern aspect of the beach was a good restaurant-not great. Great bar drinks and some specials. Our couple meals were ok, hit or miss. Great views for the patio though overlooking the beach--do put your name in and wait the time to sit out here. Ceiling fans help keep it cooler plus the sea breeze is fabulously relaxing. Can never miss going to Primanti Brothers for breakfast or lunch sandwiches/pizza FABULOUS place Home cooked and great family style foods. This BW is a great base. Park and walk everywhere from here!

Booked on BW site for 112$ AAA rate in June 2016. Arrived late so room was ready. As I have a diamond status, I think they bumped me to a beautiful 1 bedroom suite on the pool level. The décor was pure Florida tropical, clearly renovated recently, nice king bed, and TV in room, large bathroom with separate tub and shower, living room with sofa and TV, good wifi, plenty of channels. The pool was nice and cool, they have a little gym on premise with a few cardio machines and weights. The breakfast was excellent, above par for a BW, with various breads, sausage, scrambled, cold cuts, fresh fruits, cheeses, with a latino flair. The area was also clean and renovated, with a Cuban matriarch overseeing the area, very friendly. Parking is 15$ a night, I think, but it was also waived given my status...I should go to BW more often. The beach is less than 5 minutes walk, so you can basically walk in your bathing suit, towel and flip flops, and enjoy the beautiful beach. I recommend this place.

Walking distance to the beach! In a busy nice area. I think it's wrong to charge $15 to park, but it seems to be a normal fee at hotels. The rooms seemed clean. I did not enjoy the smell coming from the room ac.. Smells like they spray a scented cleaner in them. Only I seemed to notice as this didn't bother my husband or kids. The rest of the hotel is way too cold. It seems to be a normal thing for businesses but it makes coming inside a shock. The pool was great! Breakfast had a variety and was one of the nicest I've seen at a Best Western! I believe the plates they use are a compostable type. Wouldn't in be great if they tried composting!? There are recycling bins in the rooms that we found useful. I could only hope all hotels offered these in all parts of the hotel. This was a plus for me! All in all it was in a good location close to everything we planned to do. The construction was going on when we stayed and it didn't bother us or appear to bother anyone else.

I have not been on vacation in a number of years and finally decided to go and use points for a stay. I chose this Best Western location and could not have been anymore pleased. Even though the room was free with points I got the treatment of a guests paying the highest dollar amount they had. The Staff was AMAZING.

"Great location for beach access"

07/08/2016

The best thing about this hotel is the closeness to the beach- it really is less than a 2 minute walk, It might actually be closer to the beach than B Ocean Hotel right next door, you don't have to pay a "resort fee", and parking is $15 instead of $30. And, the BW hotel does provide beach towels and bikes, but you have to know to ask for them (we didn't figure that out until the last day). So I guess the signage could be a little better. The outside is a little underwhelming, but inside is a solid Best Western hotel. The housekeeping staff were really good about working around our crazy napping/sleeping schedule.

We booked this hotel for a Wednesday and Thursday night in July for $135 a night. Super great price for hotel. We could have got newer chain hotels over the bridge in town actually cheaper, but wanted to be near the beach. We knew it wasn't on the beach but nearby...and that's what it is. It's NOT that far to walk to the Ft Lauderdale state beach. Plus, you can pretty much walk and catch the trolley to most everything near by for a $1 a person. We walked through and past the state park/beach area twice to eat at Bubba Gumps and Jimmy Johns and to look at the shops there The breakfast buffet is by far the best I've ever had at a hotel. We would have spent $40/$50 for the 4 of us to eat at a restaurant for sure...and it was really, really good. Very clean, well stocked, fresh, and lots of choices. Kudos to the breakfast ladies! Our room was 2 double beds on 4th floor overlooking the hotel next door that was being renovated, but seriously, that was fine with us. Great price for a hotel room....didn't expect a view or would have paid more if I wanted one. Bathroom was a little small, but that's not something that would bother us either way. The room itself was a nice size. My kids enjoyed the pool a lot....and they are 12 and 18. The pool is way nicer than the pictures would make you think. There are 2 fountains running that cover the noise from street outside...so you really don't notice the semi-busy street. You're kind of nestled by the high rises/condos around you which is kind of neat. Plus they give you pool towels that you can also take to the ocean, and they don't make you have to swipe your card or check them out, etc. I appreciated that perk. The ladies at the front desk were very nice and professional. There was one younger gentleman who worked an afternoon shift who was standoffish and lacked a personality....but the ladies were so professional that I guess he could be overlooked. The bar food was affordable and pretty tasty. Their was a younger female bar tender who worked an afternoon/evening shift who was by far the most organized bar tender/pizza cooker/waitress that I may have ever seen. There was a middle aged bar tender for the second afternoon who was standoffish and frankly rude...and his conversation with what looked like the chef who came to talk to him, well they were totally unprofessional. We didn't have a car but did notice the dust blowing off the building next door onto the parking garage seemed to make several people at hotel quite mad. Also When leaving on last day I called twice for a Broward County taxi to get us....we were going to the the Miami cruise port....and when we had waited for about 40 minutes in the lobby, a lady from the front desk came over and after realizing what we were doing, got us a Broward taxi in about 3 minutes! Should have asked the ladies at front desk first! Overall, the 3 above-mentioned unprofessional employees/staff would be the only thing that would keep this hotel from a 5 star rating. The wifi never seemed to work for us, but that wasn't that super important to us anyway. I would definitely bring my family to stay here again. This is a great value for the area.

we have stayed here twice both on semi vacation and family business. Staff is always very helpful form the girls at the desk and the maids.

I enjoyed myself last year at this hotel and decided to stay again. Was not disappointed. Again, it's not a fancy hotel, but who goes to the beach to stay in the hotel? It's clean and affordable! There is a pool and the menu at the restaurant has been upgraded. Free breakfast is decent. Happy hour is pretty good as well. 5 minute walk to beach. This is officially my new Ft. Lauderdale hotel and I used to stay at the Westin!

First room ac did not work. Requested to be moved and they did immediately. Second room mini fridge did not work. Since only 2 nite visit didn't bother. Hotel smells musty and not very clean. Lots of construction all around. If u want a cheaper hotel near beach this works. Some staff very friendly some not so much. Usual breakfast for this style hotel. Had a pool although we didn't use. There are no real views. Unless u request poolside which could be noisy. I probably would not choose this again.

"Not on the beach"

18/07/2016

There were not enough parking spaces - even though we paid for parking. The A/C in the rool was very loud. You can only obtain pool towels from the 2 very busy front desk staff. Even though this is considered "Oceanside", it is not on the ocean, nor can you even see the ocean from the hotel.

"Awesome Service Best Price"

18/07/2016

This hotel offers the best service with the best price by the beach in Fort Lauderdale, FL. There is NO other hotel that comes near in that price rate and service. Renovated rooms and walk to the beach. Staff are very helpful and the rooms are clean.

14/07/2016

Friendly hotel staff and clean hotel. Quiet location on the beach since it is a mile or 2 away from where alot of the bulk of the hotels are. My stay was 7/6 and construction was going on, so I can see some negative reviews being posted by folks on the 1st floor due to the noise and their car being covered in dust and the hotel next door is doing construction too that starts at 8am. Basic breakfast is good enough (eggs, waffles, cereal, muffins, fruit, and juice) and is included. I wouldnt pay over $100 a night to stay here. Pros -My room was nice on 4th floor - 3 or 4 min walk to beach -5 min walk to jungle queen riverboat -Basic breakfast included and will hold you off until lunch -Nice pool area -Free airport transportation, even though I didnt use it Cons -Elevators can take a while and are hot -Construction at hotel next door starts bright and early -$16 a day for parking -between 2 hotels so not much of a view

The original room we were shown to had a first floor patio door opening out onto a bank of air conditioning units. We had booked a pool view room and if we walked to one edge of this area we could see the pool!! In fairness we asked for a change of room which they did and we had a balcony and pool view as we had booked. It is a fair walk into Fort Lauderdale but along the beachfront so plenty to watch as you amble along. Generous breakfast.

"Unauthorised Visa card use!!"

1
12/07/2016

We visited and stayed here on the 2/7/2016 to the 9/7/2016. I booked through Amoma.com and can provide proof that I booked the above dates. The hotel claimed I was only booked in until the 7/7/2016 and I explained and showed them the booking from Amoma. They accepted it. I used my card for the parking charges at the hotel. We got home to Ireland on the 9/10th July after checking out the morning of the 9th from the hotel. My balance at check out was $0. I have the receipt to prove this. Today on the 12th July, 2-3 days after getting back to Ireland, Best Western Oceanside Inn charge my Visa debit card an additional $197, without my knowledge or permission. I never authorised this transaction and had already paid for the nights in question(as can be seen from the photo attached). Best Western Oceanside Inn have committed fraud and theft of close to $200 from my account. I rang to complain to be spoken to like a child by "Cathy" who neglected to acknowledge any wrong doing or apologise for the confusion. Just passed the buck and told me to contact a Janet Graham. I am shocked at how a hotel can charge you twice for a hotel room, one time after you have gone home. Will be returning to Fort Lauderdale but will never stay in this place again.

Pros: clean room, nice balcony, excellent free breakfast, free parking, informative and friendly front desk staff, nice seating area around pool, extremely close to beach and restaurants/shops Needs Improvement: A/C set in hotel was extremely cold (effected temp. in rooms) Pool walls could use a deep cleaning/remodel

"Excellent stay - Best Western / Oceanside Inn"

30/06/2016

Our experience overall was great. If your room is poolside, the noise from the hotel next door is loud. Jack-hammer, sawing, and wall-cutting noises fill the air. (the renovations are below the parking lot.) The noise starts some mornings at 9am and ends around 4pm. According to the staff, the renovations are seasonal. (off-season will be the noisiest) The renovated lobby looks excellent. The staff is very affable, helpful, and friendly. Other then the hotel pool, another water option is the beach which is a short 1 block walk away. The hotel provides towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas. The parking is $15/day, which is reasonable considering all reputable hotels in the area charge for parking. Other hotels do not offer complimentary buffet breakfast, so this is a nice tradeoff. In closing, this is the second time staying in the Best Western/Seabreeze/Ft. Lauderdale, I rate this hotel a 10.

"Best Western - 2nd time!"

29/06/2016

This is the second time that we have stayed here. The property has changed for the good since we were here last year! The new colors and furniture have really given the Best Western an updated and tropical feel. We were happy to arrive and find our room ready. We were in the king suite and would book this room again! It includes 2 rooms,2 tv's and a whirlpool bath - which was very relaxing!! The service was satisfactory, no problems. The staff was friendly and helpful. The heated pool was great for kids and adults and was often pretty empty. We loved the breakfast choices - fruit,meats,waffles, etc. The location of the hotel is great! It only takes a few minutes to walk to the beach, about 10 minutes to walk into town and is only a 10 - 15 minute taxi ride to/from the airport. Remember you will be in southern Florida - pack sunscreen and bug spray (although we didn't see any mosquitoes). We also took the Sun Trolley ($1) into town, went to the Publix store and purchased snacks and a large umbrella that we used at the beach daily. Would we come back? Yes!!

Hotel seems a bit old, but has been well maintained and was really an exceptional value. Not on the beach, but very close to the public beach area. Staff are great, pleasant and helpful.

I was here for family business and wanted a place close to the beach without paying a fortune. When I arrived and was checking the young lady Christina was trying to set me up with what I reserved but my mind was else where, I got to my room and I flipped I thought I reserved poolside, I called down and was on the phone with a gentleman (Rafeal) and he said we do have 1 poolside but you are right on the pool and its a smaller room, I opted to stay where I was. Well a little while later Christina called and apologized she thought our room would be better. Its grea to see staff go the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied

After a missed flight home and 26+ hour without sleep, the lovely ladies the morning of June 15th, 2016 were a blessing! They were friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They rushed the cleaning of a room so my kids could finally sleep. After such a bad experience at the airport we felt well cared for at Best Western Ft.

This Best Western hotel is just around the corner from the beach, a 1 minute walk to the foreshore and restaurants and bars. We chose to eat at the hotel bar and found the snack meals to be very enjoyable (Nachos & vegetarian burger). Our bed was super comfortable and all staff were very professional and friendly, especially Nico behind the bar. The breakfast room was great, very well set out, the best that we have been in.

It was one of the best hotels I've been in. Even though it's small, it's very cosy and comfortable. Pool, breakfast, internet, room... everything was on point. The only thing I had a problem with was the parking. I understand the parking lot is under construction but when I came back from a night out there was not parking available and it's $15.95 per night. But overall, I loved it.

"Overall a Solid Stay"

11/06/2016

My best friend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights (6/7-6/9) and we had an overall good experience. We both took early fights and got in well before check in time. We stopped by the hotel to see if our room was ready and it was not. Totally okay; the very polite employee working the front desk gave us a parking pass if we wanted to park and walk around while we waited for our room to be ready. The hotel has been recently renovated: the building has changed colors, the shared balconies have become private, the lobby and breakfast area totally redone, and the guest rooms have been refreshed. It has really helped make the whole property look more modern and clean. Pretty much the entire hotel has been renovated from the ground up. The only downside to all this renovating is there was still some construction going on and you could hear it starting at 9am. Also the hotel behind is going through a major overhaul so, until that is complete, would highly recommend staying on the side of the hotel facing the pool. Our guestroom was very comfortable and clean. We were on the second floor and, instead of a private balcony, these rooms open on to a shared sundeck that overlooks the pool area. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom adequate, if a bit on the smaller side but they make good use of the space. The pool area looked very clean although we did not use it. The beach is about a two minute walk from the hotel. The only downside we found was in order to get to the beach we had to walk past a lot of construction, a very smelly dumpster, and quite a bit of standing water. However the benefits of not having to cross the very busy road outweigh the less than "scenic" walk and this is not the hotels fault. The hotel is also located in a great location close to everything yet tucked in the quieter corner of the beach. Very easy access to the airport, downtown Fort Lauderdale, major roads, restaurants, shops, and the cruise terminal. The breakfast was very good for complimentary and was well stocked and clean. The employees were also very friendly as they were throughout the entire property; many friendly faces and hello's as you walked around. Overall would definitely recommend staying here to anyone especially if you are on a budget. Even though the hotel is not technically oceanfront the price is a bargain compared to the rest of the hotels in the area.

Nice hotel with helpful staff. The only negative we found was that we were in a room with an adjoining door to another room where there was a baby crying through the night. That happens, and we weren't saying in a $500/night room at the Hilton, so we were happy to put up with the noise for the two nights before those people checked out. We did wonder though if there should be some form of sound insulation with interconnecting rooms like that. All in all though we enjoyed our time there, and we will certainly stay there next time we're in Ft Lauderdale.

My mom and I stayed here for a quick trip to Ft Lauderdale the weekend before memorial day. The free breakfast helped us save money having one less meal to figure out every day, it was walking distance from the beach, and a little bit further of a walk to restaurants other than the few immediately near by. The pool was wonderful, plenty of lounge chairs especially on the second level of the outdoor area and the staff was soooo helpful, kind, and polite. They even had some beach chairs we could borrow for the beach from past guests who bought chairs and didnt want to travel home with them. The room was exactly as pictured, very clean and comfortable. Not only would I recommend staying here, I personally plan to be back. Worth every penny.

For reasons I cannot imagine, I have not been here in over fifteen years. It was my place to go several times a year, and now I see what I have been missing. I was only there for a short two day stay, but was more than impressed. The place is unrecognizable from the old days....and looks as if it has just had a complete remodel. From the lobby to the rooms, everything was clean, new, and beautiful. There was a great full breakfast that came with my room, and all the help was the best. I was so great to still see a few of the old crew!!! Rose is still doing a wonderful job in food and beverage....Maria still running a top notch housekeeping staff...and even one of the maintenance managers was still there....it was like old home week!!! You will not be disappointed with a visit to this hotel....for two days, or two weeks..

I stayed here before a cruise with my 12 year old grandson. The room was very comfortable, the beach was only a few hundred feet behind us and there were a lot of restaurants within walking distance. My grandson loved the pool and the bar there has a small grill menu which was just fine for us....and good Bloody Mary's! The breakfast in the morning was very nice with several hot and cold selections and someone always being attentive to cleaning and guest needs. I'd definitely stay here again.

Comfortable, quiet, clean, great hot breakfast included. Short, easy walk to great beach. Lots of great restaurants further walk North. Restaurants were a bit expensive.

This is the second time that we have chosen to stay at this hotel prior to our cruise. We really enjoy the pool, the breakfast and the close proximity to the beach. There are added touches to this hotel that makes it stand out from the others. For example, they have pool noodles and balls that my 9 yr old daughter loves to play with. Also, they offer complimentary beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas to use at the beach. The breakfast is the best that we have had at any hotel. They have recently remodeled the lobby area and revamped the menu options available at the bar/restaurant.

I've been the the Best Western Oceanside a handful of times and I will continue to go back! We just recently visited good ol' Fort Lauderdale for a girls weekend and this was my first choice of hotel! It was recently renovated and now has a full kitchen so everything you need is in one place! The complimentary breakfast is a plus and they never hesitate to hold your bags if you have a late flight or early arrival! The staff is friendly, helpful, courteous, and treat you like family! They seem to have been there for a long time and remember you even if its been a while! Sarah and Rose are the best bartenders! Love those ladies! Keep up the good work and see you next year!

The room was exactly as pictured on the internet. The bathroom was awesome. A full walk in shower with rain shower head with led lights! Coconut lime verbena soap and shower products. The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet had a make your own waffle station. The staff was helpful. The location is great right off the beach and ocean by about 1 block.

This small hotel is nestled among the giant Condos and Hotels right on the beautiful Ft. Lauderdale beach. Walking distance to the site of the Las Olas Beach/Park. Personally, I have never been to such a beautiful beach. Ft. Lauderdale is developed around it. This hotel must have been part of earlier development. The size gives it away. Recent renovation makes it quite comfortable, yet very affordable.

The coffee in the room was very good and location of the Best Western was great for the beach and some local restaurants. Didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. Easy access via cab to Port Everglades for the embarkation for the cruise.

I booked this hotel based on the Best Western brand, other reviews and because it is within walking distance to the beach. I was pleased to discover upon arrival that this BW is small, boutique-like with a small number of extremely friendly family like staff, All whom we encountered were friendly and extremely accommodating and provided excellent customer service- which is what keeps me as a loyal customer. Special thanks to the front lobby staff- Theresa- front end manager, Rafael, Kasandhra and Sirena; to Michael- chief engineer and security, Nico and Tom- bar cocktail technicians. I did have one issue with a hotel staff person, which I did not plan to mention. I do so only because Theresa, front desk manager responded and resolved the issue IMMEDIATELY and the staffer apologized to us personally. Thank you BW Oceanside, FT Lauderdale Florida. We will return, hopefully, annually. Blessings.

This is a great value hotel in a great location. It's a real oasis among all the big commercial hotels on the beach. Beach access is great and within walking distance to all the A1A bars, restaurants and shops. The staff is great and accommodating and the facility is clean and updated.

I have been staying at the Best Western Oceanside for years and would not consider staying anywhere else when I travel to the Fort Lauderdale area. It is convenient to the airport, restaurants, the beach, and the businesses that I visit. Carolina Bello and her staff are the best.

"What a FANTASTIC little place!"

07/05/2016

We booked a suite as I knew the location was great for the suites. They walk out to the pool. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready so we parked it outside by the pool and grabed a few cocktail from the bar and enjoyed the Florida sun until our room was ready. Great room, quite spacious. Nice big bathroom as well. Not a lot around this hotel though, which I knew, but booked it as the price was right! Breakfast was great for an included breakfast. Fruit, eggs, sausage, cereal, waffles....your typical fare but nice that it was not just a continental breakfast. Not exactly beach front but you can access the beach quite easily. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Even with all the construction going on our stay was still very enjoyable. The front desk staff the bar staff were all very friendly and helpful.

26/04/2016

Stayed one night, two couples. We had a room on the second floor with a nice large patio out the sliding doors overlooking the pool. The other couple were across the hall in a similar room with a balcony overlooking the back of the hotel, their room was quieter than ours. The rooms had a coffee maker and a microwave oven and were clean and looked as if they'd been recently refurbished.The staff throughout the hotel were friendly and helpful and a full breakfast and free wifi was included in the price. There was also a small exercise room with some basic equipment and a bar which also served snacks. Good location, three minutes walk to the beach and a sun trolley stop just outside, which takes you along the beachfront to the Galleria mall for $1 each way or $3 all day use. You can also download the sun trolley app and track the location of the trolleys in real time. Taxi from the airport was $20 including tip and about the same to the port if you're heading out on a cruise. I'd stay there again if the price was right, as I can't think of any downside.

"No view, but good location, pretty well kept up and good price"

25/04/2016

I did a lot of research before booking this hotel as I wanted something on the beach for the right price. We had room 320 which is two queen beds. There was a shower (no bath) with a rain head, regular head, and various body sprayers. The fan in our bathroom did not work, however. Since we only stayed one night I didn't request maintenance. Our hotel room had a microwave and small fridge. The beds are comfortable and the room was pretty clean. The hotel overall has a nice appeal to it with recent updates. While I'm not sure what the top level can see, it seems like none of the rooms have a view of the water and if they do, it's got to be very obstructed. The pool area is basic, but they do provide towels. As everyone has stated, the location is pretty great. It's a 3-5 minute walk to the beach which is also a park. There are palm trees, numerous picnic tables, and beach volleyball courts. We walked across the street to the Bahai Cabana restaurant for dinner which I recommend for a cheap bite or happy hour. See my review there. Additionally, there is also a full bar in the lobby that also offers sandwiches, hot dogs, snacks, etc. The breakfast was good and the dining area is very nice for a Best Western. Parking in their garage was $15 per day.

"Good and just ok"

25/04/2016

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights following our cruise. We weren't ready to end our vacation. This place was very expensive for what you got. The room wasn't large but it was clean. There was a cafe/bar where you could get finger foods. It was a walk to any restaurant in the area and they were expensive. No fast food in the area. There was not direct access to the beach it was a walk also. The best thing about this place is, it had the best continental breakfast we have ever had.

"Pain in the neck survey"

Room too small for 2 queen beds. Get a room with either a king bed or doubles. The survey is too long and annoying for something is voluntary. We wanted to get out of the room only to be told to use more words in this box!

18/04/2016

For the high price we paid, we ended up with a view of the wall of the hotel next door at the back of the hotel. Next time I will ask for confirmation of room location before booking the room. Overall, we got what we expected from the hotel chain.

We are here now at the BW,our pre cruise hotel. It is pretty much as we expected based on reviews we have read. Pool area nice,drinks are good and not a long walk to the bar,people at the front desk very helpful,Rooms are ok,bed comfortable. Hotel is clean although still feels a little dated. Lots of construction around and noisy for the most part. They are setting up on the beach for a large C&W event so a mile of the beach is closed off. Although we are ok with this hotel it is isolated a bit and is a long walk to most restaurants and bars. Just ok for pre-cruise.

"Great location, good property"

30/03/2016

We stayed at this property for a few days pre-cruise. Easy access from the airport and to the cruise terminal. Best to take the shuttle (at a fixed price) to the cruise terminal as traffic delays can easily run up the fare on a taxi. Room was spacious and well-appointed. The property was well-maintained and the staff people were great. We'll be back next time in Fort Lauderdale.

"A decent hotel spoiled by small details"

3
30/03/2016

The hotel is located a few steps away from the beach with no direct access to it. The cost and popularity reflected this - the hotel was fully booked on our first night and nearly full for the other two nights. The only problem with the location was that there are very few places to eat out within walking distance. The building is not old and overall it seems to be fairly well maintained. Our room had a balcony, which was nice even though the view was of the hotel beside us. However there are a couple of things that were not good. These initially made us feel that this was a poor quality, poorly run hotel (which it is certainly not), but first impressions are hard to change. (A) The front elevator is small and busy. There is a second (slightly larger) elevator at the rear of the building, but you have to walk through a maze of passages to access it on the ground floor. Better signage might help, but a more direct path to it on the ground floor is what's really required. (B) Because of the wait times for the front elevator many use the stairs. These are poorly maintained in terms of cleanliness and paint, creating a poor impression of the hotel in general (made me wonder what the kitchen looked like!). (C) Breakfast reminded us of a "bun-fight", with people all trying to grab what food they could. Obvious problems were that the hot food was not being prepared quickly enough to meet the demands (basically the staff were not tracking what foods needed to be replenished), plus the area where breakfast is served has a poor layout for self-service. (D) Also the scrambled eggs served at breakfast (if you were "lucky" enough to get any) were poor quality (made from powder?) and unappetizing. Plus the coffee was undrinkable. Personally I would have preferred just a continental breakfast with more choice of rolls and better coffee. I think this would also solve most problems at breakfast.

"Great Location post cruise"

29/03/2016

We thought the hotel was located in a great location close to the beach and water taxi. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was pleasant and kind to store our luggage until the rooms were ready. We had an early morning flight so did not eat at the facility.

The great parts......the location is super, very close to the beach, not far from the airport and cruise terminal. Room was very spacious and clean. Nice staff. Free breakfast was absolutely great. Wifi worked super. Only downfalls for us... We were one of the few not to have a balcony and our air conditioner was a bit on the noisy side. Would stay here again but be sure to book early enough and ensure I had a balcony.

21/03/2016

Just stayed here for an overnight prior to a cruise. The location can't be beat! It is close to everything-the beach, shops, restaurants and bars. It is on the beach side of the street, so to get yours toes in the sand, it's only a short walk. There are also a ton of places to eat, drink or shop at just a few blocks away-a short stroll up the main drag and the possibilities are endless. Our room was clean and quiet, check in and out was a breeze and it made the stay before a cruise into our own "mini-vacation". An added bonus-the early morning complimentary breakfast. It had a great selection (healthy choices included) and the make your own waffles were fantastic!

"Great location"

20/03/2016

We stayed here for two days before our cruise and we really liked the property. It's in an excellent location, close to the beach and to the intercoastal waterway. Rooms were clean and a good size. Beds were very comfortable. However, the air conditioning unit is very loud and actually woke us up. The exterior and lobby could use some updating. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

"Before and After Cruise"

18/03/2016

We stayed here a day before and 3 days after our cruise. Check in was quick and efficient on Saturday but can be a bit longer on Sunday when cruisers are checking out and in. It was only a short walk to get to the beach boardwalk and many bars and restaurants on Seabreeze Blvd. The hotel is not in the busy part of Fort Lauderdale Beach, so its a bit quieter. The rooms were neat and clean but the beds are showing their age and the air conditioner needs a good cleaning in the vents. The buffet breakfast was hot and ample for a Bestwestern. Friendly front desk and breakfast staff.

We have stayed at this Hotel for the past 5 years and always have 3 rooms and stay 2 nights. The staff is great and so is the location. We Cruise out of Port Everglades and this is the perfect place to stay. They have finished their renovations and everything looks wonderful and the included breakfast is really good. Great place to stay for a night or 2 weeks.

"Great Location, with a Price to Match!"

4
16/03/2016

The hotel is about 100 yards from the beach and promenade. It's about a 10 minute walk from the bars and restaurants further along the seafront. The staff were very nice and friendly. The pool area is fine - there is a sunbathing terrace up some stairs from the pool, which provides more space and privacy. Buffet breakfast is basic and unfortunately is of the paper plates and plastic utensils variety. A bit of a shame for a hotel which was by far the most expensive we stayed in whilst touring Florida. It is (I think) $15 per day to park here, although the parking area was open and handy. The gym is tiny, but usable.

"This is an older hotel that has had some renovation but still needs a little improvement."

3
15/03/2016

Keeping in mind that this is an older hotel and some renovations aren't going to change that. The pool area didn't look as nice in person as it did in the photos we saw. The pool itself is very old, had some mold under the lip around the pool and the first thing we saw as we stepped into the pool was a sucker stick and oily substance floating on the step. The water was warm and we really enjoyed not having a chilly pool. Our room was updated and clean. We arrived at the hotel from our cruise about around 11:30ish and it was pretty chaotic. We had to wait about an hour to get in our room so the early check in was appreciated. We used the pool while we waited. They had two elevators but the front one was broke and the second one broke while we were there. We had to go up and down 4 flights of stairs. The back stairs were dirty and smelly on the bottom floor. We feel we were a little mislead about the distance to the beach (the reason for choosing this hotel) only to find out that there was another hotel directly behind this hotel and that hotel was beach front not this hotel. It wasn't far to the beach but not what we had expected. We left to early in the morning to try the complimentary breakfast. I wouldn't want to stay here for a vacation but it was fine for a one night layover from a cruise.

"Overnight stay"

15/03/2016

The hotel is very dated desperately in need of a makeover. Our room overlooked extensive renovations of the building next door. This room was quiet (until the builders arrived) except the air conditions unit is very noisy at night. Breakfast, included, was basic buffet fare. Small pool, nice, but, smokers seemed to congregate there making sitting outside "smelly". Overall, an okay hotel for a stopover, with quite a walk to any restaurants or shops.

"Excellent facility. Great room and wide variety breakfast offering."

It was a nice hotel, except we were overcharged at the bar and that left a bad taste about the hotel. The location was very nice and it was small enough that it was cozy. But again the overcharge at the bar lowered my review.

12/03/2016

My husband and I stayed at this hotel 3 years ago and decided to stay again for one day after our cruise. We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the lobby and the hotel had undergone a renovation. Amazingly enough we were given the same room we had the first time but what a change. The décor in the room was beautiful and the shower was amazing. We spend some time by the pool which is heated and had a couple drinks. Very relaxing. The location is very good for the beach and a nice strip with alot of restaurants. They do charge an additional $15 per day for parking which I think is unnecessary.

"Best value for location"

11/03/2016

The best thing about staying at this hotel is value and location. It is located very close to Ft. Lauderdale beach and probably the best price for a beach close hotel! It is kinda plain but very clean. It is also close to Las Olas Blvd. and so within walking distance to all those great shops, restaurants etc.!

We have stayed at this hotel now on 2 visits after a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. It is close to the beach, cafes, beach shopping, Port Everglades, airport, water-taxi tour - just a nice smaller hotel with excellent service, nice pool/deck area, complimentary breakfast - very clean hotel. We would stay here again !

"Best Best Western"

06/03/2016

This may be my favourite best western (and I've stayed in countless across the country) The staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast is incredible (we are vegan/vegetarian) with lots of options, also a great location for the beach and to catch the water taxi.

"Good hotel "

05/03/2016

Room 318.The hotel is nice and has a good HOT breakfast but they were not accommodating about an early check in even when I requested and got no response... our plane arrived @6am and when we arrived we were told we would have to wait untill 3pm.... even knowing that we were there I had to involve an manager when checkout is 11 and by 1pm our room still wasn't ready...also the patio/balcony had a view that wasnt the best but wasn't the worst... other than that this hotel is a nice place to stay

"Even better than before!"

04/03/2016

This is the third time we have stayed at this property, either pre or post cruise. What a big difference from a year ago! The Reception area has been completely reconfigured and renovated. The complimentary breakfast has more selections than a year previous. Our room was freshly updated. Clean, bright, with a comfortable bed. It's just a few minutes walk to the beach and restaurants. Compared to other hotels in the area, this one is on the lower end of pricing, but still seems very expensive for a modest Best Western. But it's best selling feature is location, location, location.

"Great way to end a cruise"

02/03/2016

We were at the Hotel after an 8 day cruise. Easy to get to, lots of action and the beach is nearby. Nice place. That's all I really have to say but for some reaso TripAdvisor has a 200 character minimum so this last sentence is filler

"Pre-cruise beach holiday"

28/02/2016

Although this hotel is not right on the beach, it is very close with only a short walk and is a lot cheaper than the other options closer to the beach. The pool was great for the children. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

"A great location but, cannot recommend ."

24/02/2016

We currently stayed one night after returning from a cruise were very pleased with the location of the hotel to the beautifully kept beach and convenient restuarants . I must say, I was dissatisfied with the appearance as we entered the hotel. It was stated as a Best Western Plus and having stayed in over forty Best Western's throughout the U.S., I didn't feel it met the standards it should have . Yes, the hotel was freshly painted but the quality of the workmanship was lacking as in, painting over whatever was left on the walls or woodwork and the bathroom was clean, but, lacked quality for the price you pay. We did have to change our room because our headboard backed up to the elevator, very loud. The second room we had, had a distinct odor, not sure what it was. I am not one to complain but, I probably would not stay there again.

"Everything went perfectly."

5
23/02/2016

We stayed a double room for a long weekend in the beginning of February. We had a late check in and everything went smoothly. There was a lot of activity in the lobby area during most of our stay. This hotel seems to do a lot of business with cruisers who are extending their vacations. We had a great visit. The hotel has been renovated and refreshed from top to bottom. Our room facing the pool was clean and comfortable. Even though we were close to the elevator, we didn't hear any noise. Breakfast was good and definitely better than the carb loaded continental breakfasts you find at many hotels. I will also add that I have stayed at a good number of hotels along Fort Lauderdale beach and I can't think any that had a complimentary breakfast. One should definitely take this into consideration when thinking about costs. The hotel is in a good location. I've seen some reviewers complain about proximity to the beach. It is oceanSIDE and not ocean FRONT. The hotel makes no claims of being ocean front. The beach is just a few steps away. Also, there are plenty of dining options within walking distance. A car isn't really necessary. My only concern is that there is only one elevator and on busy days this can get rather busy during check out time. This isn't a high rise, so I had no issues taking the stairs, though someone with limited mobility may have an issue with this. Thanks for a great stay.

"Definitely recommend, great location"

5
22/02/2016

Located just around the corner from Fort Lauderdale Beach with fabulous restaurants nearby. We have stayed here before, but since they have renovated even better place to stay. 10 mins from the cruise port, great location if you aren't driving outside of Fort Lauderdale and great spot for stay before or after cruise.

"Nicely renovated hotel, clean and good location!"

4
22/02/2016

Great location near Ft Lauderdale beach, just steps away to the beach. Hotel was recently renovated so it has a fresh "new" feel to it. In comparison to the prices of other Ft Lauderdale beach hotels, this was a great value for a cheaper price and a clean fresh hotel. Would stay here again and recommend it to others. I would say the lobby and bar area is small, so if you are looking for a place to "hangout" at night, there isn't much of a common area, but that wasn't a big deal to us.

"Great hotel to stay prior to a cruise!"

5
19/02/2016

My husband and I stayed here for two nights prior to a cruise sailing out of Port Everglades. Not being familiar with the area, we were not sure whether this would be a good place to stay, but it turned out to be the perfect place for us. Located a block or two from the beach, there is no ocean view, but the area is nice and it's an easy walk to the beach area. The hotel has been recently renovated and is clean and comfortable. There is a casual bar area, which you don't see in most hotels of this level, and they offered nightly happy hours. We enjoyed cocktails at the pool, directly adjoining the bar area. Our bed was comfortable, the room neat and clean, the bathroom more than adequate and clean. We especially enjoyed the balcony overlooking the pool. What a nice unexpected treat. One of the things we always appreciate at Best Western hotels is the free breakfast area. For other meals, there are little to no restaurants close by, so we decided to take the water taxi from the marina (a few blocks away) and visit the Las Olas shopping district. We also took the water taxi to Hollywood Beach, a beautiful recently renovated area with a 2.9 mile boardwalk and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Resort, along with numerous restaurants and shops. For pre-cruising, the hotel offers a shuttle to Port Everglades. Taxis are also available. It is a quick 10-15 ride to the cruise port. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good hotel prior to a cruise, or simply looking for a beach vacation in Fort Lauderdale.

"Great location for exploring"

5
19/02/2016

I booked the Best Western for its proximity to the beach without paying oceanfront prices. While not inexpensive, the location was great - only a few steps from beach access, the free hot breakfast was extensive and a great time saver, the pool was clean and the front desk was helpful. Parking costs $15 per day, but that seemed normal for Ft. Lauderdale. Unlike many reviewers before me who said parking spaces were very tight, I found them to be no problem at all. Since checkout was 11 am and our flight didn't depart til 8PM, we were permitted to leave the car parked while we spent the day. (Note: the airport is only about 6 miles away, but rush hour traffic is a nightmare.) Our room was not very spacious, but fine for two people. All rooms have been refurbished in bright colors. There is a large flat screen tv, refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. All rooms seemed to have nice balconies (I would suggest getting a pool view, otherwise you have an alley or street view.) The bathroom was clean, but very small. Little counter space, but that was ok. All in all, it was a great experience.

"Clean, comfy beds, good location "

16/02/2016

From the pics on Trip Advisor it is obvious that this hotel has done a major, beautiful renovation on the lobby. Beds were very comfortable although the rooms are not huge. The building is obviously old, but kept up nicely. A block from a really nice area of the beach with volleyball courts and picnic tables. A bit of a walk to bars and restaurants but a cab ride was very cheap! While the staff at the front desk didn't seemed thrilled to wait on us and one staff gave us incorrect info about cabs, the bartenders were super nice. This hotel has an AWESOME continental breakfast. Great selection and beatifully presented. Hostess could have been more pleasant but was a great benefit to staying here!! One downside ... when I called in November I was told construction was complete but Monday morning it was obvious it was still happening. Didn't effect us too much, but definitely still happening. I do appreciate the updating and trying to make the hotel more updated. Small pool but nice and great sundeck on second tier. A good stay.

"Clean"

14/02/2016

Clean basic hotel, one block from boardwalk beach. About a 10 minute walk to pier Excellent breakfast with basic items, eggs, make ur own waffles, sausage close to restaurants for lunch/dinner. Good value for money. Close to airport cruise terminal.

"Clean and beautiful hotel"

11/02/2016

This hotel has been completely renovated inside and out. The rooms are very comfortable especially the bed. The staff are more helpful than any other hotel we've stayed at and will do anything to make your stay the best!

"Acceptable for 1 night stay."

09/02/2016

Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was above expectations. Hotel was older and has been updated. The room did have a musty odor. Cleanliness was fine. Parking lot was a little tight but close to the elevator to go right up to room. Entrance/exit was also tight for car.

"Sun, beach, warm pool and inviting deck."

08/02/2016

I arrived at this hotel not knowing what to expect and was delightfully surprised with the services provided at a reasonable price. A cafe with pretty good hamburgers. Happy hour from 4 to 7. Heated pool and a breakfast worth getting up for. I would recommend this hotel for a one nighter waiting for your cruise or for a week wanting to explore Fort Lauderdale. Enjoy.

"Great One Night Stay"

4
08/02/2016

We stayed here pre-cruise and arrived about 8pm. This was booked through Priceline and we got an incredible deal on it (later realized it was a glitch in the system... the price was too good to be true, but they did honour it) The room was fine for a one night stay. The bed was comfortable. The bathrooms could use a renovation and cleaning staff could definitely pay a bit more attention to detail as there were black hairs in the bathtub and on the toilet. The location was perfect -- close to the port ($15 taxi ride, including a quick stop at Walgreens to pick up supplies), close to the airport ($17 taxi ride) and close enough to the beach that we could have enjoyed that too, but we did not have time. We walked down the strip about a block and had an enjoyable dinner outside at the Bahia Cabana.

08/02/2016

Great hotel & location for pre cruise lodgings...Close to beach & many great restaurants ...Had requested early check in but had to wait till 3p..no worries though, great pool & bar area to relax & enjoy the weather..Also shuttle to port area in the am for a nominal fee

"Didn't live up to my expectations"

2
07/02/2016

I really had high hopes for this hotel. The reviews were mixed, which it seems they always are, but I took a leap of faith and booked it for 1 night before our cruise. The property is just down the street from the beach, which was nice, but there was construction going on next door which was loud for a time. The real problem was the lazy maintenance in the room. Cracked grout in the bathroom looked horrible. A messy caulk job on the shower pipe coming out of the wall, and it looked like a 12 year old was hired to paint a blue accent line around the bathroom. The bar was nice for a quick beer. The breakfast area was nice and the food was plentiful. The staff was nice and helpful. I don't think I'd stay again, due to the high price and shoddy maintenance.

"Decent place close to the beach"

3
04/02/2016

Stayed at the Oceanside inn many times. The overall quality has been consistent. The free breakfast is less and less appealing as the room prices keep going up. The rooms are clean and updated however the bedding is uncomfortable. The best asset here is the proximity to the beach.

"ENJOYABLE STAY"

"Another Good Stay at the Best Western Oceanside"

4
01/02/2016

We have made a habit of staying at the Best Western Oceanside Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. We use this hotel as a venue for either our pre or post cruise travels. It is conveniently located near the airport and cruise-port. Why are we loyal to this hotel? It is the staff that really makes the difference. The front desk employees and the breakfast room employees are always very helpful and understanding of our unique needs. We should also mention that the hotel has been recently renovated. The new paint, new furnishings and updating was really appreciated.

"Nice Place for Short Visit"

4
30/01/2016

We stayed at the Oceanside Plus the night before a cruise out of Port Everglades. We had a room with two double beds on the sundeck. The hotel has recently been remodeled. We found the room and bathroom to be nice. I do agree that the air conditioning is not the best. Our room was either too cold or too hot. Hard to find that comfortable spot. Beds were comfortable. Rooms had mini fridge and microwave. There is a free breakfast in the morning. It was good, good variety, lots of places to sit. There is a also a bar that is open during happy hour. But I don't believe they had any food. We did not get to use the pool because it was a little cool the night we were there. You are about half a block from the beach. Again, it was a little cool when we were there so we did spend much time down there. There is a nice beach park with a playground about 2 blocks up. And if you walk another 1/2 mile north there are a bunch of restaurants and bars across from the beach. Its super close to the cruise terminal and we took a cab the next day and were there within 5 minutes. They do have a shuttle that comes but it was $8/pp and with 6 of us it was cheaper to take two cabs. But for only two people it was probably worth it. Would stay here again before or after a cruise.

"Lovely beach area hotel"

4
30/01/2016

This is an remodeled hotel in very good condition with underground parking. You can walk to the beach which is also a fairly good sized city park. It is a lovely, sandy, beachfront park where you can enjoy the ocean. This park is right next to the hotel property. The hotel rooms are clean. Enjoyed the location. Only a few miles from Port Everglades.

"Weekly stay"

Our company stays at this fine establishment every week. Not only are the rooms great to come to after a long day of hard work, but the staff is extraordinary! Always helpful and welcoming. Especially Megan. She's awesome! Thanks for always taking care of us each week.

"Nice comfortable hotel stay"

28/01/2016

We stayed here in January 2016. The hotel had an amazing free hot breakfast with lots of food choices. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. Parking cost 15 bucks but not too bad considering its in a prime location. The hotel was a short walk to the beach. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing stay.

"Best Stay Ever"

28/01/2016

Had a great stay, everything perfect. Breakfast was great, rooms were clean, bed was comfy, and the staff was very nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Loved the location, not too far from everything but far enough close enough to get to.

"Just "o.k""

3
26/01/2016

We stayed here one night before our cruise and one night after. The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast! And free wi-fi. Everything else needs help. On our first night we were in a room by the pool and the air conditioning sounded like a helicopter! And the room needed some definite TLC. On our second night we were on the second floor with a door adjoining to another room where a kid was crying all night. The walls were really thin. Also, we asked for an early check-in on the first night but didn't get our room till well after the standard check-in time. Price was good though....we used airmiles to book....so I'd probably stay here again but hopefully we'll get better service.

"Visit after cruise"

25/01/2016

We stayed 3 nights after we took a cruise. This hotel is located close to Fort Laudable Beach. Within walking distance to great restaurants. Breakfast was excellent and place was very clean. Staff very friendly. A great value.

"Bed Bug Nightmare"

1
25/01/2016

We stayed on the second floor, the room seemed nice enough and the bed was very comfy. We stayed for 6 nights and the day we were heading home we started noticing bites on my son and I also had a few but not as bad as my son. We had walked through some weeds so I thought they might be chippers or something. By the time we got ho.e and the next morning the bites had become extremely itchy and blistering weird looking. We went to the emergency room a d found out that they were bed bug bites and we were treated for such with shots and creams and they cleared up. We treated our luggage and house for them and luckily never transferred or killed any that came back with us. Our luggage was off the floor so they may have not gotten in it. I called the hotel to tell them the room we stayed in and they said to me they don't have bed bugs and that was pretty much that. Went back a few months later and stayed at the Ritz with a good experience and have also stayed at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort with no problems which also has a great gym.

We are sorry to read about this comment, however we are unable to verify your claim. We inspect every room during the regular cleaning and this includes checking for bugs and have not found evidence of any bed bugs. Thank you

"Much Improved Hotel"

19/01/2016

When we last visited this hotel seven years ago it was very ordinary However, it has now moved up several levels following some major refurbishment and turned out to be one of the best hotel we stayed at on this tour. The reception area has been opened up and is now very light and bright and everything in the hotel is now in pristine condition, well equipped with plenty of plugs( which is not always the case in hotels) The work was still ongoing when we there some of the restrooms in the public area had not been finished. There was some drilling noise on first day and the front drive was being re- sealed but no major problems.A good location Just on the edge on all the attractions with several restaurants in walking distance.

"Very close to the beach but has its issues"

3
14/01/2016

This hotel has its up and downs. The main space of the rooms are very nice, comfortable, and roomy. The bathroom in our room was dated, rough, and small. The breakfast is excellent. The pool area is nice. The walk to the beach is less than 2 minutes. There is a $15 fee per day for parking that I couldn't find any reference too on the website anywhere. The woman at the front desk overcharged me for parking while she was flirting with another employee. The chambermaids were dumping some sort of cleaning water over the upper sun deck down onto the decks below with no notice or warning to guests who could have walked right under it. In relation to other hotels near by it was cheaper but you get what you pay for.

"Not "oceanside" only oceanside of street"

3
14/01/2016

We stayed here for 2 nights before our cruise. The room that we stayed in had been recently renovated. The balcony had been closed in with large windows to provide more indoor room space.It was very noisy because there was no cap covering the top of the window and rain dripped very loudly on the window ledge. It rained both nights all night long. We told the front desk about the noise but nothing was done because the hotel was fully booked.The breakfast was very good. There were a lot of hot choices. It's a very good location. We could walk to to the beach and the water taxi. There is not an ocean view.

"A great place to stay for an overnighter, before another day of flying"

13/01/2016

This hotel was a little further from the airport than I thought, but not too bad. There are actually lots nearby for restaurants, etc… Hotel was located in a tight space, but inside was very nice. Looked fresh and updated. Room was standard and still had the old fashioned air conditioning that was bulky on the window wall…the kind that blows all night and hard to adjust for comfort. Beds moved like waves at the slightest move. We are used to firmer mattresses. Other than that, clean and nice! Breakfast was roomy, big, lots of options and the best darn breakfast for the whole family. Everyone was very nice. Would stay again.

"Great overnight stop!"

12/01/2016

Had to overnight it before our next adventure began and this hotel was a great way to unwind before another day of travel!. Lots close by! Pool area had tables and chairs to relax in and rooms were nice. Beds were the only problem as they move too much if someone blinks. (We are used to pretty firm mattresses) They do not offer a shuttle service to hotel, but can call you a cab. Breakfast was by far the BEST we've had and lots to choose from! It set the tone for the whole day!

The Oceanside has just completed a renovation and it shows throughout the hotel. Clean lines, great colours, comfortable rooms and staff that are proud of their new surroundings. Pool is small but adequate, plenty of lounge chairs around the pool and on second level sundeck. Bar ok but no restaurant to speak of which is fine as there are so many places within walking distance. Great beach access.

06/01/2016

We stayed at this hotel for 2 days, it was the most expensive place we stayed on our 4 week vacation. The cost of stay VS quality was the poorest of all the hotels we stayed in... the pool was outdated and the room was just average. I must note that the room was clean, staff was very helpful and location of this property is well suited to board a cruise ship or access most places in Fort Lauderdale.

We stayed two nights at this hotel in late December 2015, and we had a great time. The hotel is right on the ocean beach, so you can walk to the Atlantic Ocean. You need to go past a hotel, though, which blocked the view from our room. The breakfast was very good and free. There was a nice pool at the hotel, and they had their own parking lot on the property.

"FL Vacation"

30/12/2015

This was a good hotel. The name is a little bit of a misnomer. The name of the hotel...Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn...has minimal to do with being "oceanside." None of the rooms are oceanside nor do they have an ocean view. It is within a block of the beach, but that's about it. It's relatively close to many other places to shop & eat, but mostly have to drive. It's not a bad location if you're going to be taking a cruise. However, you will have to drive to the port or take a cab.

"good location but loud aircon"

3
30/12/2015

Recently renovated rooms but two things loweres my points for review: very loud aircon which had to be turned off for night sleep (very sweaty to sleep) and floor-to-floor carpeting. Floor-to-floor carpeting is something from the 70's and very unhygienic and cause of allergies /asthma. Breakfast was ok, but same bread everyday for two weeks. Very small swimming pool and too warm water (heated). Also construction in neighbour hotel cause a lot of noice so we preferred the beach. No waterboiler in room, but a coffeemaker (for two) and microvawe so we heated hot water fot tea in microvawe.

We stayed here one night, the renovation shows and it looks very nice. The rooms were excellent and above usual BW standard. Breakfast also above standard, fresh fruits. We liked it. Parking costs $15 I think per night, but not sure. Location is pretty perfect, close to the beach, and strolling along the beach side curbes.

"Poor value"

Pool area needs upgrades. It's boring. There is a lot of traffic noise and you can see all the passing trucks and cars that go by the pool so it's not very relaxing. So go for a walk to the beach just down the boardwalk. No shuttle from airport. But there is for other Best Western Hotels, like the one in Hollywood. Don't have a meal at the bar!!! Need a better menu. Never book this Hotel through Air Miles the cost sucks.

The price is pretty good here and it is near the cruise ship piers, which to us was critical this visit. The hotel has been recently spiffed up, with high quality appointments. Everything is very clean and almost everything looks to be essential new condition. The view from our non-oceanside room opens to a building across the street, too urban for me. The oceanside rooms are likely far nicer if the view is key to you. There are some things missing, like any type of shelf in the shower for soap and shampoo. I suspect that was just missed and will likely be added at a later date.

"Value for money, cleanliness, nice location and great breakfast!"

This hotel is situated at the beach in Fort Lauderdale and is a close neighbor to the posh and expensive Marriott. I had the pleasure of attending a conference there in December and visited a double room at the top floor which was not any nicer than mine, although the view was great. I prefer the Best Western- less of all the stress and much cheaper while being more than nice enough! The hotel is recently refurbished very nicely. Everything looks nice and the room was spacious and nice. Cleaning was top-notch every day. Breakfast was included and had everything I could ask for- you could make your own waffles. There was several hot dishes to choose from, fresh fruit, eggs, yoghurts, several juices etc. The pool is large enough for a swim and the fitness room had dumbells (could use heavier ones- largest were 50 pounds), a threadmill, a rowing machine, a stationary bike and one other machine. There was a machine for doing cable exercises and chins. Fully adequate! All this came at a very reasonable price. Considering that it is only a 5 minute walk to beach- this is great value.

Though there is no airport shuttle their breakfast was excellent. The lobby and entrance is less than inviting, but the rooms were good and a small bar area was adequate. The pool area is very nice too. The location, close to the beach was very nice with some restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk. The overall decor seemed updated compared to their price competitors. Decent value and a good night's sleep.

The hotel is newly remodeled and I think they did a good job. I think renovations are still going on because I hear construction noise during the day. The rooms are clean and everything is updated. Good quality hi-def TV with HBO and Cinemax included with room. There are ample electrical outlets with many plenty of charging outlets. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom is updated and clean. The hotel seems well constructed and is quiet inside. As is the norm, the room comes with free breakfast. At this location parking is $15 a night. The front desk staff is polite and helpful. Overall, this is a very nice place to stay and I don't have significant complaints.

The renos continue outside which required some loud drilling which was a bit annoying around the pool area. Also there is a lane way to condos behind the pool which also created considerable noise ie delivery truck, waste pick up etc. I realize this is not the hotels fault but during the day, if you are looking for quiet around the pool during the week, you may find it frustrating at times. The hotel itself is quite nice, clean and the front desk staff very pleasant and helpful when needed. The room was very nice, beds comfortable and at night very quiet. It is a quick walk to the beach which we liked. All in all it was nice and would return.

Stayed here a year ago while there was construction going on, not a pleasant stay. Decided to try them again and we were very pleased. They far surpassed my expectations and I will stay here again. The room and building as a whole was much better, clean and well done. The breakfast was very good and well presented. Also handy for the airport and cruise port. Only down side and not that critical is the lack of a lot of restaurants in the area. One very good one just a five minute walk.

Front desk staff who checked me in on 11/13 was fantastic this young lady went out of her way to be helpful. Lobby area very nice and new, pretty. Our room was okay I think housekeeping does a great job keeping the rooms up. Having said that there was mold in the bathroom, light fixtures were well ...gross and you could tell that the "Reno" of this room meant slap some paint on this pig. The pool was really icky I would not step foot in it and cringed when I saw children in it. Seriously you could see gunk on a grate at the bottom of the pool and more gunk around the sides. I am not saying I would not stay here again, but just wondering where they did all the renovations? All staff I encountered were very nice. Speaking Of staff when I left at 5: AM this morning the lady working front desk asked me if I wanted her to call a "TAXI" I being half asleep say yes that would be good. My husband is outside before me and I come out to see our luggage packed into an van. Okay miffed at myself for getting taken but we need to get to the airport luggage was already in the van. Note: Reception gets a kick back from these drivers ......I could have done much better with a "Taxi" or Uber. (Although I did cut a deal with him) don't like playing these games. BWO: Please tell your staff to stop ripping off your customers! Your employee asked if she could call me a "TAXI" not her friend! Reader

"Average Even with Upgrade"

07/11/2015

Checked in about midnight after $23 taxi ride from airport. Front desk upgraded us to a pool side suite because the booked room was sold out for the night. Or luggage was moved by a bellman/night maintenance man. The large tiles are being replaced abs about a quarter of Th deck is not yet finished. We needed to move pool chaises out of way due to limited space. Wireless keys needed to be held by the lock for several seconds as there in no visible and only a barely audible click sign of release. Air conditioning was adequate but only seemed to flow into front room. Front drapes were in a state of minor disrepair and gapped slightly. Some piece of interior decoration, likelya mirror, seems to be missing in bedroom, 2 wall mounted screws were visible. Spa/bath was a welcome tension reliever, several jets did not work but neck and back jets worked great. Our wake up call never was received.

"Should Be Better After Construction"

3
31/10/2015

We stayed here for three nights before a cruise. The hotel is perfectly located. On the positive side, the rooms were clean (except for the carpets), the beds were comfortable, the air conditioning worked great and the rooms were quiet. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but there's a shared large balcony outside the rooms overlooking the pool. On the negative side, they were doing construction in the lobby and in the pool area. The lobby was closed and they had a front desk set up in a room by the pool. That's also where they had the breakfast set up. It was pretty inconvenient. The pool wasn't closed, but it wasn't really convenient to use either. What bothered me the most is that we had to use an elevator in the garage to get to our 5th floor room. I had my 8 year old with me and at night, after supper, it didn't feel very safe going into the garage at night to access the elevator. The breakfast was pretty standard, a few hot items and the standard continental fare. They had towels at the pool for guests, which was really nice. The beach is right around the corner, but we had a little trouble finding the entrance because of all the construction at the neighboring hotel. The beach was very nice. The hotel is within a short walk of a great little restaurant in the Bahia Cabana hotel down the block and a high end Mexican restaurant next door (we didn't go to that one). There are additional restaurants about a mile down the beach. You can catch the trolley outside the hotel and get a ride to those restaurants, the Galleria Mall, and other shopping areas. Fun ride and really cheap - $1 per person each ride or $6 unlimited rides for the entire day. Also, if you are looking for something fun to do, check out the Jungle Queen sightseeing tour, also within walking distance of the hotel. All in all, we would stay there again after the lobby and pool construction is done and the lobby is open again.

29/10/2015

I too stayed at this hotel while attending a conference at the Marriott. I was aware from other reviews (not from the booking site I used) that the hotel was under construction, but was not aware that the pool would be closed. When I mentioned this to the desk staff, the response was that it was noted on the Best Western site. True, but the information was at the very bottom of the hotel description after pages and pages (on my phone) of small text. Construction noise was AWFUL and fairly constant from early morning and through the day. In what I believe was an unrelated event, the fire alarm was tested the day I arrived and was so loud in the room that it scared me half to death. Most decent hotels warn guests when a test like that will occur. Regarding the location, others seem to like it, but I found it a bit out of the way from the nicer part of Ft. Lauderdale. It's close to the public beach park where the beach was crowded and littered with trash on each of the days I was there. The beaches farther north are much cleaner. On the positive side, most of the staff was pleasant and the breakfast was excellent. I'm sure that if the management comments on this review that they will say "come back and see us after we're done renovating" as they have on other reviews. Sorry, but after this experience I won't be coming back.

"Enjoyed my stay, despite construction"

4
25/10/2015

I stayed at the Best Western Plus Oceanside for a business trip, as I was attending a conference at the Marriott. From a dollars-and-cents standpoint, I think I made a very wise decision. It is a three minute walk from the BW to the Marriott. Tip: From the elevator, exit the garage towards the right (onto Holiday Drive), cross the street, and follow the (marked) walkway to the Marriott. Besides the lower room rate, there is free WiFi, and free breakfast. The hotel is relatively small, so easy to get around. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Check-in/check-out was easy. The room was comfortable, and the WiFi was fast and pretty reliable. The breakfast is served from 7 - 10 AM (I think) with both hot and cold items. No complaints there. My only complaints have to do with the hotel renovation that was happening during my stay. The "lobby" was moved to an office on the first floor (next to the breakfast area). At times it really was inconvenient. Sometimes areas were cordoned off. Sometimes workers were in my way while moving equipment or supplies. It was noisy during the day (not at night, and not too early in the morning). The "bar" was moved to the breakfast area. From mid-day until the evening, you can go to the breakfast area and order a drink (I didn't, though I found the bottles of liquor in the same place as breakfast items from a few hours earlier a bit amusing) or food from a very limited menu. It was so limited, that the one time I ordered, my first selection was unavailable. I don't think the pool was closed, but the renovation activities made it look uninviting, and I never saw anyone in the pool. I don't know if it would have been appropriate for the hotel to notify me about this work beforehand, and I probably wouldn't have changed my plans, but it would have been nice. In light of the above, I cannot give BW Plus Oceanside a 5-star rating, but I of course anticipate this situation will be temporary, and the hotel will be nicer in the long run. I might consider returning here when the work is done, should my wanderings take me back to Ft. Lauderdale. It is my tradition to include a few words for triathletes. The pool is small, and I did not swim in it, but the Ft. Lauderdale Aquatic Center (International Swimming Hall of Fame) is a half-mile from the hotel, is open to the public for a small fee, and includes both 25 yard and 50 meter pools. I've reviewed this separately. The BW Plus Oceanside is convenient for runners to run along a walkway that follows the beach. Just go in front of the hotel, turn right, and (after Dos Caminos) follow the red-brick road. You won't have to cross any traffic (at least for as long as I went). About 2 1/2 miles from the hotel, there is road construction that will turn you back (is EVERYTHING under construction in Ft. Lauderdale these days?), but it is easy to get a 5-miler in. Bottom line, this hotel is small, with a cozy feel, nice staff, and is convenient to the beach, the Marriott (if you are conferencing there), and some other local attractions. If you are deciding about going for a spontaneous getaway, I suggest giving them a some time to sort out their renovation.

We liked the room and balcony, it was very clean and quiet, and in a great location just a few steps from the beach. They serve breakfast (included) and lunch, simple and inexpensive, and they have laundry. Unfortunately, this hotel is under renovation so the front desk is a converted room and you have to walk through the parking garage to get anywhere. There are few restaurants nearby and boat tours across the street but the main boardwalk is 10 minutes walking.

Very nice and clean hotel with a very good complimentary breakfast service. We visited this hotel May 2014 and although the rooms were a bit outdated they were very nice and large rooms and cleaning service was very good as well. The hotel is located only a few steps from the Ft.Lauderdale beach and around the corner you can take the water taxi that tours the waters of the Ft.Lauderdale area as well as Hollywood. We used this hotel mostly to travel trough South Florida with a rented convertible and visited the Everglades, the Florida Keys and Miami. However, we made good use of it's amenities such as the pool and the bar when we were not traveling and there was no hassle with sunbeds in the pool area. A big plus is also the good and cheap parking garage located in the hotel. Overall a very nice experience.

"Best Western Oceanside Inn Hotel (Fort Lauderdale) – “Renovations”"

05/10/2015

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night following our stay in Miami the previous evening, our stay being the 14th September 2015, we were on our way to Cocoa Beach and fancied checking out Fort Lauderdale. Let me say straight from the start, the staff here are fantastic, the hotel is being renovated, it would seem to be the pool and the balconies mainly, and yes there was some noise, but it wasn't too bad. The main reception is closed and they direct you to a large room at the back of the hotel, which seems to be attached to a store room. I asked how much the parking was, and they said due to the disruption, they would waive the charge. The check-in was fine, and the room was large and well decorated with two Queen Size beds (see picture) we were located on the fourth floor room 414. The bathroom was clean and plenty of flesh towels with a very controllable shower, and the AC was very controllable, no noise could be heard from the other rooms, but I don't think the hotel was full. The ice machine worked well, and the flat screen TV was fine. The Wi-Fi was working well, and tea and coffee making facilities were available for an early morning brew. The hotel price was well below average at £59.00 per night, the breakfast was really good in a room next to the closed pool with lots of choice for both hot and cold food. The hotel is convenient for the beach, and we took a right and walked along the strip at night to watch a thunderstorm, whilst drinking a large cocktail. Just after the marina at the Café Del Mar bar with live entertainment. We did drive into Fort Lauderdale downtown area, and got a pizza, it was pretty posh down there, with big houses with lots of yachts moored at private marinas, out of my retirement price range unfortunately. Getting back to the hotel, I would recommend this hotel as a really good competitively priced hotel in Fort Lauderdale, even though it is in the process of being renovated. Mark and Michaela.

"WORST HOTEL EVER....."

01/10/2015

I was there from 19th September 2015 to 22nd September 2015. This is the worst hotel I've been in. on the 19th night when i was checking in to my room, i saw a pile of sand just infront of the room. It looked like someone intentionally left it there. And when i informed the front office about it, they said that they will take care of it. But after 3 hours when i was going out i still saw the sand, only this time it was scattered all over the place. I informed the front office again on my way out. When i returned i saw that only infront of my door is vacuumed; and there were still sand....!!!%$$%@^*^*(& The breakfast was horrible; the same thing each and every day. And the worst part - I found out that all the foods were stale on the third day. The muffins, waffle batter...everything....want to hear more - our car was scratched by the renovation people. And they took no responsibility what so ever. In the morning when we go to the parking lot, we couldn't recognize our car. The Blue car turned Yellow. They were doing something and didn't bothered to give a sign not to park cars there. ..IT WAS THE MOST AWFUL HOTEL EVER. DO NOT - DO NOT GO THERE.

In spite of its name, this hotel is not oceanside: it is in the second row of hotels, with no sea view and well below the "Zero mile" marker of the huge Ft. Lauderdale beach. The room was nicely refurbished, but I gave the hotel a low rating because it is a construction site: the lobby is closed entirely and one has to walk through the garage (full of building materials), past the pool, and register in a poolside hotel room. After 8 am loud drilling noise was heard throughout the building. In spite of this, the room cost about $ 160 a day. Free breakfast and WiFi but parking cost another $ 15 a day. The elevator did not work on arrival, and a repairman had to help us call the elevator. There are only two ice machines (on different floors) and one of the two was out of order. The ramp and garage are very tight and could be a problem for SUV's. The garage has two floors, we parked on the upper level, as a tropical storm was approaching, and I feared that the lower garage would get flooded (the storm missed Florida, but the beach was closed anyway due to big waves).

This motel is currently under renovation but fantastic breakfast. The pool was closed during our stay but the place is right on the beach. Work starts at 8a.m. and goes strong until 5. So plan on being gone all day. The staff was wonderful during the total mess going on around them. Construction will last until the end of September. We would go back here in a heart beat.

When we arrived, the elevator was not working, but the company was there in the process of repairing it. Our only complaint was that the parking spaces were very small and we were in a large pickup truck. We had trouble finding a space where it would fit! The location was very good, close enough to the beach and it was in a nice neighborhood. We would stay there again. The lobby was being renovated, so it was sort of a walk to get there, but they had given me a heads up about that situation when I booked the room. Overall a nice experience.
