Amazing for the Price
Submitted: July 9, 2012

Summary: For the price, this cannot be beat. Because we have family in the area we often fly to Ft Lauderdale and this is a great way to keep cost down and get into a great location.
Hotel/Condo: This is a historical building from 1925 and has lots of wear and tear. Despite the hotel's condition it still has a small grocery store, coffee shop, bike rental, and clothing store inside. Also, it is at the south end of a very popular beach location which is AMAZING. Cannot beat it.
Condo Room: It is small but is suffice. Full bathroom and towels, full kitchen with utensils, and beach chairs in the closet are really all there. If there are items you need which are not supplied inthe room you can always go to the store downstairs. Your view is of the parking lot and there is no balcony.
Parking: There is a public garage, valet service you pay for, and parking lots around the hotel. All of these locations you must pay for. Valet is $18 a day, the lots start at $7 a day but fill up quickly, the garage is about the same as valet.
Location: Could not get any better. The location is worth a lot more than the cost of the room. There is a bus stop close by and taxi drivers infront most of the time.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! This is pretty accurate. I have owned the condo for 8 years now and there has been many renovations made so despite its age, it has been renovated and is in great shape! It keeps looking better and better and I go three times a year myself- my next trip is September and I cannot wait.:-)
Regarding the view of the garage- that is not correct- you wouldn't be looking at parked cars or a garage at all,! The condo oversees the concourse itself, and you would see a small part of the side of the building and would also see people walking in the concourse and if you look way off to the side you might see a small portion of the outside of the garage building but it is way on the other side!
There are no balconies at all in any of the condos, but since the building backs right on the beach and boardwalk -- I don't think it's needed! Yikes, iust talking about it---I miss it already!! Monica
