Hotel was about two blocks away from the beach and about a mile (10 minute walk) from beach place where all the restaurants and bars were. The location was great, but I'm glad I only stayed there one night. The hotel uses actual keys, similar to ones that you use for your house and at least for our room it was difficult to to get unlock the top and […] bottom lock and it took two of us to do it. The room was clean and had enough space, but the beds were on tile and were on wheels so if you moved around too much the bed would move with you. In all, good for one night if you're just trying to find somewhere to stay for the night or even a couple of hours, but I wouldn't stay longer than that. Especially when I know I can find some place better for the same rate. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice funky hotel near the beach in Fort Lauderdale"
this is a fun, funky hotel. It's a nice break from the chains that I stay in when I travel for work. The rooms are a little rustic, but it's a clean and fun place with lots of cool little architectural details and well maintained landscaping. The pool was recently renovated and has a Pebbletec finish and it's a salt pool (just like my pool at home) […] and is wonderful for a quick swim after you've been to the beach. My wife and I would stay here again. If you're picky snob, stay somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Travel up and down the east coast of Florida"
This hotel was very close and convenient to both FLL and the beach. Our (2) day stay was great. We would visit again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel great staff."
This is a very good hotel with an accommodating staff. I spent 7 nights and the bed was comfortable and the AC worked great. It is an older hotel that is cared for very well. Clean almost to the point of sparkling. The staff went out of their way to ensure my needs and request. The hotel is about 750 feet from the ocean and about 3/4 of a mile to the […] entertainment area of Fort Lauderdale beach. Thanks to the staff for helping in making my vacation enjoyable.

"Artsy Beach Stay"
We booked this hotel for a one night stay prior to taking a cruise. I wish I'd had more time there. I tend to like smaller neighborhood hotels and this fit the bill. The hotel staff was very accommodating. Our red eye flight got us into Fort Lauderdale several hours before we were supposed to check in but we were offered a place to store our luggage […] and given towels for the beach/pool. And they had a restroom we could change in. Poolside was very comfortable and green - loved all the plants and trees. Since the building is probably from the 1940s or 50s, the toilet had some flushing issues but the shower was stronger/better than expected and the rooms had lovely tile floors and a brand new large flat screen TV. King-sized bed was very comfy too. Location was great, just a two block quick walk to the beach. I would definitely stay there again before heading out for our next cruise.

The place was very clean. Beds were comfortable and the staff was really friendly. Things like the bathroom fixtures are very outdated but it's so clean it did not bother me.Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our stay very much...right near the beach and all the happenings. Nice Staff and clean...would go back again .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No updates in a long time"
Stay here only if you want very basic accommodations, and are more interested in the beach nearby. The bathroom especially looked like 1972Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We loved our stay."
I mean close to the beach, pool, awesome room: pretty much great. We were really close to a general store as well as tons of restaurants. We had a great trip. Prepare yourself for a pink bathroom though.... That's a thing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great relaxing garden surrounding pool."
The room was nothing special, although nice. The garden around the pool was well kept and had nice, intimate places to sit. Hotel is only two blocks from the beach at the north end of the main beach area. Can walk to a lot of bars, restaurants and shopping areas. Other needs are only a short drive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A GREAT BARGAIN"
This hotel is small and a great bargain for being so close to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value, good location close to the beach"
Nice sized Ikea furnished room with lots of drawer space and large closet. Flat screen TV. Separate kitchen area with full size fridge, stove, micowave, coffee maker and dining table. Front desk friendly and helpful, as was the maid service who was happy to give you more towels, coffee, etc. Small pool looked clean but didn't use it.....went to the […] beach just two short blocks away. Only negatives: 1-Bathroom original 1950's type (looks like the original pink sink), new tiles, tub and toilet, but no counter space. But clean. 2-Floor dirty as evidenced by what washed off my feet in the shower. Not a 5-star property, by far, but great for the value-minded. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Stepping Back in time"
This small hotel is part of a larger group of small hotels in a three block radius. These hotels are owned by the same man whose vision of Fort Lauderdale included the restoration and economic growth of the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nothing fancy, but decent and it was a good price for the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
Scary place! I did not feel safe in this hotel. We checked in after hours, the place was locked. We called phone number that was taped to the door,after short wait (5-10 minutes) on the dark street someone checked us in. Steep steps into the entry hallway were tough to maneuver with luggage. The elevator to the 3rd floor where our room was terrifying! […] If you saw the movie "Unfaithful" with Richard Gere and Diane Lane then you have seen a similar elevator but this one was only the size of phone booth. While the front door to the hotel was locked and you needed a code to enter there was also a stairway which we dragged our luggage down to leave literally 5 minutes after checking in, that was wide open with people from the street coming in and out. While the rooms appeared cleaned and our room had a full kitchen it looked more to be temporary housing then a vacation hotel. The next day the hotel manager apologized and did fully refund our prepaid rate. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Dated, older, but cost effective option. Close to the beach. Many construction sites in the area. They accommodated my current needs adequately.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Was a great decision"
We were pleased choosing this hotel. Spring breakers started some noise but it didn't last long. We would stay again..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
when i checked in they gave me a whole different room than what i was supposed to have and when i asked them to fix it because my birthday was the day before they told me all of their rooms were booked and their other associated hotels as well. it took them two hours after i checked in to find me another room at one of their hotels. i was in tears and […] essentially my whole weekend was ruined. they gave me a voucher for a free breakfast at a restaurant and the food was horrible and when they remade it and brought the food back it was still bad.

"easy walk to beach"
2 blocks from the beach, in a renovating residential neighborhood (North Beach Village), very close to Bonnet House, half mile walk to water taxi. Not fancy, but good value and fine for us. No loud parties policy. No staff in office from 8pm to 8am.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The customer service here was HORRENDOUS save for one employee named Denise. The room had broken mirrors, overhead lights didn't work and the sliding bathroom door was broken off the hinges. Do NOT stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right down the block from beach!"
The hotel staff was wonderful and accommodating! They were so friendly and helpful in making our stay pleasant. The rooms were clean and bright. The location was 2 minutes walking from the beautiful Ft. Lauderdale beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Older hotel but well kept and clean. Staff very hospitableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is really cute, very close to the beach and there is a nice outdoor restaurant next door. The evening I stayed it was cool for Florida weather and rained a little but they had a cover over the eating area made it very nice. I was surprise that the T.V. was a flat screen in that the Hotel is retro. I found that the room was clean and nice. […] Surprised that this close to the beach it was not run down. Pool and hot tub was clean and nice as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok place but not luxerious"
We arrived a little late due to flight delays and when we got to the hotel the door was locked. We had to wait for someone to show up to let us in. The room was clean but the hotel did appear to need some maintenance. Not a great place if you need any special assistance as there did not appear to be a working elevatorGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very convenient to the beach."
The four days we stayed at the Tropirock were very pleasant. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff were pleasant to deal with. We stayed here primarily because they are pet friendly. The restaurant on the corner was very convenient, and the food was excellent; we all had the filet mignon the night before leaving, and it was absolutely […] delicious. The only downside I have with the hotel is the parking arrangements. I have a long pickup truck, a Toyota Tundra with an eight foot bed. All the parking spaces available had my rear wheels on the sidewalk. As a result I was ticketed by the Fort Lauderdale police. This would not have bothered me so much if I hadn't called before to find out if the parking was adequate. I was told not to worry, as they owned additional properties that should be able to accommodate my vehicle. Unfortunately, when I checked the other facilities, I would have had the same problem. To prevent further tickets, my son, who lives in Fort Lauderdale, allowed us to park our truck at his apartment complex, but that left my wife and I without our truck. My son did chauffeur us around when he was available. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Awesome place to stay. Will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed one night before a cruise. The hotel was easy to find. Parking was okay. It's an older hotel; shabby chic is a good description. Kind of noisy too. We were awakened by the garbage truck collecting the garbage around 6 a.m.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Charming site with adjacent lovely beach front"
This hotel is a gem in hiding, charming retro decor but most comfortable room, bed, amenities. Just lovely! Well maintained, unique, definitely not the averageGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not so helpful staff, but a decent place."
Would like to point out Patti, the previous owner of the hotel & now the manager, who was very inflexible and didn't want to help us out on something that was within her power. Other than Patti, the hotel was decent and enjoyable. As Patti was so inflexible, we actually ended up cutting our stay short and moving to the hotel opposite the street, where […] the Italian owner gave us 30% lower price than TropiRock. That hotel actually has higher reviews than TropiRock. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I spent a lovely relaxing weekend at this wonderful hotel. The hotel service and location was superior and the nightly room rate was a bargain, I recommend the Tropirock to anyone looking for an alternative to the traditional modern resort hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant atmosphere, substandard front desk"
We arrived at 2:00PM and noted with relief how pleasant the facilities seemed after seeing the run down appearance of the surrounding area. As I tried to check in, I was informed check-in was 3:00PM. My companion stated we needed to change for a wedding we were to attend at 3:00PM. The front desk person just kept repeating the mantra "check-in is at […] 3:00 - your room is not ready" We asked if there was anywhere we could change - again, check-in is at 3:00. After much badgering, she finally agreed to see if the service staff could hurry the process along. She came back and stated the room would be available in 20 minutes. It was closer to 30 minutes, but we were finally allowed into the room at 2:40 and quickly changed. We were about 15 minutes late for the wedding - which they delayed until we arrived. The room was very clean, nicely decorated and freshly updated, though the age of the place was still evident - that contributed to the overall atmosphere of the place though. Once we returned from the reception to change for viewing the Boat Christmas Light Parade, we found the tv remote would not work - at this point the office was closed so no new batteries were available unless we purchased them. I noted someone had put a battery into the remote backwards, and once I switched it, the remote worked fine. Then next morning my companion inquired whether the motel provided newspapers and if not, where could we obtain one. The same front desk person was not helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Location is nice, promising place but disappoints"
The hotel is a short block from the beach which is a nice location. It appears in adequate condition but disappoints in several areas. Pool area has nice furniture but the pool isn't heated and had some leaves in the overflow drain area. The leaves are easily fixed if the staff put forth the effort. Checked into the room, the A/C was set at 76 which […] took a while to cool down. Disappointing it was set so high. Furniture in the room was clumsy, drawers felt like they'd fall out. Complained about the drain in the shower running slow. Desk clerk said she'd have the engineer check it. However, it was not fixed (nothing to suggest the engineer ever checked it). It's obviously an older hotel, bathrooms are dated but pretty clean. It's hardly a "resort" but has adequate accomodations. The kitchen would be useful if you spent a week there to cut back on food costs. It is a fair walk to bars and most restaurants. The free WIFI is nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
