"Run down and dirty"
The hotel is run down and dirty bit it's across the street from the beach and next to the Hilton. They're tearing it down sometime this year. No wonder

"They sell ruined rooms for very high price."
We were given very terrible room absolutely different from what we booked online. We had to cancel second night and broke our vacation, because there were not any available rooms in near hotels. We came back home instead joy our weekend in Fort Layderdale.

"Roaches, snot & stinky room"
Room was horrible and check in staff was the worst with nasty attitude. Roaches, stink and flat out disgusting. But two days later (5day stay) they fixed the issue. I asked about a room transfer complaining about the situation, a kind Irish older woman gave the best customer service and took care of the reservation by sending me to their sister hotel next door. The other hotel was cleaner, basic and old but very accepatble. When I was in the lobby, a city code enforcer was looking for a permit for the wooden fence facing the ocean. Staff said building is getting demolitioned and new company was building a new resort. No wonder owner doesnt care about remodeling and most of the staff/owners don't seem to care, though some are really nice! If you wanna book something somewhat decent look elsewhere, like next door, a bit more/day but worth the extra cash. Trust me!

"short sweet and clean."
The hotel service was excellent. The people were very personable and helpful. Avalon waterfront was very clean. But the only issue was the room carpet was old and there were cracks and peelings on the ceiling in the bathroom. The pool was nice and clean though. The TV and phone are outdated, but for the type of stay I was there for that didn't matter. One great thing is their Wi-Fi. I hope this review was useful.

"How is this hotel on Expedia?"
I know Expedia has product managers that've actually go to and inspect the hotels that are within their product. I do not understand how this hotel got past and is still being featured on Expedia's website. This hotel is worn down, and one of the dirtiest hotels I've been to in ages. The conditions of this hotel are deplorable. While the location is directly across from the beach, there were no views. And for $154 spent for a one night stay, my only reward was taking cockroaches home with me. I've seen better at inner-city hotels in bad neighborhoods that charge weekly and monthly rate.

"Nothing like the pictures."
My friends and I rented a room at the Avalon waterfront hotel for my 21st birthday. Online I chose the option for a room with two queen beds and a full kitchen. When arriving to the hotel they informed us there were no rooms with two queen beds, so instead we had to sleep on double beds. The first room they gave us was horrible. The door had no handle inside so you couldn't even close it. And the kitchen had no oven. They moves us to another room with an oven which wasn't much better. When we went into the bathroom there was an unflushed toilet and an opened soap bar, like the room hadn't been cleaned, yuck! Called hotel staff and they came, threw out the soap bar, and left. There is no comforter on the beds. Only one sheet and when calling to ask for more sheets they said there were none. When we first got to the room there were no towels, told them we needed 4 and they brought 2 and said there were no more. The room was dirty and smelled bad and the hotel staff does not care. I would never stay there again, glad to be home!!

"Dirty, rundown hotel close to the beach."
Worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The chair in the room had stains on it, the ceiling had stains, the door had spaces between the floor and ceiling, it felt dirty, rundown, and yucky. The bathroom decor was from the 70's, but it was at least clean. The bathroom window was open and the screen was bent and broken. I would never stay here again, it was terrible.

"Awful Hotel"
This was by far thee worst hotel experience I have ever had. The room was disgusting and the staff was terrible. The first room we were given was so gross that we were afraid to touch anything, and the bathroom door didn't even close. When we asked for another room we were given one that didn't even have beds in it! It just had bed frames! We were then just given the first room back. The lady at the front desk was rude and acted like we owed her an apology. We ended up not even staying there because we were afraid to sleep on the bed. Awful place! Do not stay here!

The owners have a location the with a lot of potential, they need to spend some money to clean up the place!

It is an old, or oldest hotel at Fort Lauderdale, room is really nasty, kitchen appliances are old and don't have maintenance, you must pay $ 10 every night for parking in an open area without security, gardens don't have maintenance and look very ugly, door lock is really unsecure. Please delete that hotel from your list.

The attendant was very nice! There was no where to park and while I was trying to park a police officer was notified about a terrible incident that occurred. I saw the room and it smelled like old metal. The fire alarm needed a battery and the room smelled old and moldy. I decide not to stay and left. I could not get my money back because it was no cancellation on expedia.

"Run down, dirty, disgusting motel"
I knew I was in for a surprise when the clerk who checked me in recommended I go to the room and make sure everything worked. It had been a long day of travel and I didn't want to deal with cancelling my reservation and finding another place to stay, so I endured. This motel is very run down, tired, and in need of serious renovation. The door to the room would not close unless the deadbolt was locked (using a standard household key). The bathroom had broken tiles, very little cold water, large stains on the mirror, and a shower that was either off or scalding hot. The carpet was absolutely filthy. The furniture lacked knobs on the drawers, which was probably best given what might be living in them. The blinds on the rear windows did not close so I could see the motel across the courtyard day and night (and they could see me). To add to the excitement, I was bathed in the warming glow of a vending machine all night (which wouldn't accept dollar bills). All in all, this is the dirtiest, most run down facility I've ever seen or stayed in. Unless you're a college student wanting a dive in which to party, I highly recommend avoiding this place. I definitely would not bring my family to this establishment.

"Just No - Location is not worth it"
I arrived late around 12:30am and was not expecting what I walked into. The front lobby does not look anything like what the pictures show. Perhaps I was in a completely different location but it was nothing the same, rather falling apart, dirty and old. This hotel is extremely out dated and in dire need of upgrades. Parking for this hotel is really sketchy as they have spaces available down an alley that has huge potholes and bumps. It's quite scary even though the staff member ensured me it is safe..... I didn't not have a great comfort level. As for the room, it was a complete disgrace. The carpeting was so dirty, the furniture looked like it was so old the upholstery was falling apart, the bathroom was smaller than any hotel bathroom I have even been in and appeared to be very dirty. One of the dust ruffles on one of the 2 beds has some dirty or rust marks on it which made me question if the sheets were even clean. I did not end up staying here as the state of the room made me really uncomfortable and I felt like if I did stay, things would eventually crawl on me. With the location being the only positive part of this hotel, I would NOT recommend this place to anyone I know.
