"hotel close to beach but needs reno"
wasn't as the photo shown very disappointed. Didn't have a good selection in breakfast varieties.The comfort was ok and ok sleep such as room size.BUT bathroom very old.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could have been Cute"
Sort of art deco place with the potential to be really pretty and in an outstanding location. But drab, dull, rather grubby in a way that the owner's smile couldn't overcome. Breakfast was poor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"okay place to stay but a bit messy"
we booked this place for 3 nights for a two double bed room and arrived at 11PM. The staff was really nice and helpful. But room appears to be a bit small and floor was not too clean. Considering the price we paid, this is probably what we can get. Overall I would say it is an okay place to stay close to the beach if you don't have a better choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good location, friendly helpful staff, in need of some upgrading on the room front.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Do not believe the pictures or descriptions. This place is dirty, rundown and not at all what I expected. Do not stay here it is nasty, rotten floor boards moldy walls with holes, rust stained tub and filthy. Do not stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A very simple but nice hotel very close to the beach. Good value for money and very friendly receptionGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was dirty.. The room was dirty.. We were extremely dissatisfiedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Flott beliggenhet til en fin pris."
Fin pris og perfekt beliggenhet. 2 minutter til den beste delen av stranden (syntes vi, da ettermiddagssolen her ikke ble sperret av de store hotellene). Mannen du møter da du sjekker inn er så søt og behjelpelig med alt. Rommene er store nok og det føltes helt ok rent og ordentlig. Fin ventilasjon. Frokosten var ingen høydare men ok som magefyll før […] du rekker fram til lunsj. Dusjen vi hadde (bodde på Marokko-rommet - alle rommene har forskjellige navn og tema) trenger definitivt et nytt dusjhode. Var så lite trykk at vi ikke klarte å spyle bort all sanda fra kroppen en gang. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Für den Preis echt in Ordnung."
Es war jetzt nicht das beste Hotel in dem wir geschlafen haben aber unser Zimmer war total in Ordnung. Der Besitzer ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Ganz allgemein ist das Hotel für den Preis in einem guten Zustand. 1 Woche würde ich nicht bleiben aber für eine Nacht war es mehr als ausreichend. Man darf sich nur nicht allzu viel erwarten man bekommt […] kein Hilton! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The worst ever"
We knew it wasn't a 4 Star hotel, but was still surpprised, that a hotel could be so dirty. The breakfast was a laugh. We had paid for 3 nights but did only stay for 1 Night. We have been around the world and stayed in over 200 hotels. This was the worst ever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Muy mal estado los baños, el mantenimiento de las habitaciones acabado. Bien ubicado pero Muy costoso para lo que en realidad es... Soo bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pessima igiene, pessima colazione"
Camera e toilet molto sporche. Colazione misera e preparata solo con prodotti confezionati da supermercato, niente di fresco. Luogo silenzioso, quartiere tranquillo. PESSIMA SCELTA, mea culpa...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oh my god... never again!"
Ok... I'm trying to remember why did I book this place???? During our on the road travels we alraedy saw some disgusting places... but this... oh no! No thanks! The manager was really friendly, but that's the only positive thing I can say about this place! Our room was located on the second floor with a small lobby in front of the door... this was smelling […] of pee: really horrible! Than we entered the room... the first I though was "this looks like a room of an horror movie". I won't list everything that was bad (manily... everything!) but the worst was that the whole area (including the bad, the toilet, the floor, the tub, the sink... EVERYTHING REALLY) was covered with wings of a not specified insect! Not just few wings... they were really everywhere! And what about the "continental" breakfast???? No, really... make yourself a favor... everywhere else but here! And it wasn't really that cheap!!! A catastrophe!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nur die Lage ist genial."
Heruntergekommen und schmuddelig. Das Frühstück hat seinen Namen nicht verdient. Nur die Lage ist genial.Genuine Expedia guest review
Der Hotelmanager war hilfsbereit, hat aber von Hotelerie keine Ahnung. Alles war schmutzig und das Frühstück katastrophal. Z.B. das gleiche Messer für alle Gäste, Flüssigbutter, keine Cerealien, Kaffeemaschine und Toaster schmutzig etc. Einziger Vorteil: Wir durften für 8 Tage einen Koffer einstellen - allerdings für 2 Dollar/Tag. Das ganze Haus ist […] in einem misslichen Zustand mit verrosteten Fensterrahmen, gesprungenen -scheiben, keiner anständige Schliessung möglich. Absolut nicht empfehlenswert.

"great little place"
02/19/14 cvillemoody virginia
Location can't be beat near the beach and Las Olas at 1/3 the price. Extremely nice and accomodating manager. Older, cozy and beach-worn but certainly livable. Just think of it like staying in an friend's old beach cottage, not in a fancy hotel room.
02/05/14 Peggy L Fort Lauderdale
The gentleman running the hotel was extremely pleasant, helpful and hospitable. The rooms in the hotel are nothing like the pictures on their website - not even remotely close. Did not expect the Ritz but did expect what was depicted on the website! Decor and room quite disappointiing!
"Accentuate the positive & keep an open mind!"
01/22/14 Cynthia H Portland, Maine
We booked, then read the reviews. We've "roughed it" in Belize and learned that most of our experiences are really more influenced by our own state of mind than the external circumstances, so we decided to keep our reservation - and I'm glad we did. We booked the Paris room but when we got there, the very welcoming manager, Pro, said he had upgraded us to the king-size bed in the Tahiti room. This place was an excellent value, excellent location. Just know ahead of time that it is old and does need updates and a solid floor to ceiling cleaning. With patience, the shower was perfect - plenty of hot water and pressure, once you figure out how to - again, patiently - maneuver the knobs. The bed linens & towels were clean. When you consider how much time you actually spend in the hotel, where you are staying - Fort Lauderdale, and the rates of every place around, you realize this place is an excellent value! Take a chance, have an open mind, and enjoy Fort Lauderdale! It's all about perspective - you get what you put out there!
"Manager and filth make this place a no stay despite location and value"
01/21/14 Paul F
The manager owner is a fawning phony who refused to look at the room or admit it was filthy and argued with me instead of simply cleaning it. When I checked out he argued more with me and again refused to look. The curtains are stained and torn. .. there was a big roach in the room and grunge covered evening. The fridge was probably last cleaned of mold and mildew when Nixon was president. All he had to do was take care of it but he argued and then hit the maid to do a half naked attempt to clean. The location is great. It's quiet and the bed was nice but because it was filthy and he argued with me I'd say stay away. .the web site photos ares do misleading that they might be considered fraudulent.

"Old motel that's not bad but it is unfortunately not respected here on cleanliness"
09/02/13 ClaudiaHeimann Otterberg, Germany
An older hotel that was once set up very lovingly and with Flaire. Each room has a theme such as London, Paris, Nairobi, etc. Unfortunately, no attention is paid to cleanliness. Although these are a very good price for the night and the proximity to the beach are there. But the glasses in the cupboard were used with red wine and never rinsed the toilet was dirty on arrival and the bed was not cleaned in recent months. All in all very recommendable if you want to use the room to sleep and otherwise trying to stop it. The owner is very helpful late check out at no additional cost possible. However, I had booked breakfast and got only one day coffee and breakfast. For the next 2days, the owner put 2 and Beagle O juice in the refrigerator coffee was offered no more. So in short order breakfast there was not really at all.

The manager/owner, was very nice to us, and made us feel welcomed. A nice breakfast set up, walking distance to the gorgeous ocean. Clean and quiet rooms. Can't wait till we go back next year. thanks, Manish. John Mark D.
"Maybe misleading, but price and location can't be beaten."
05/02/13 the_noodle84 Waterloo, Iowa
I recently stayed at Gigi's for a weekend while the Tortuga Festival was in town. I chose Gigi's because of its location and price. It was by far the cheapest stay for this particular weekend and was only a mile walk down the boardwalk to the venue. My general impression of Gigi's - you get what you pay for. I stayed in the "Barcelona" room (did not see any other rooms). It was cozy and the bed was comfortable. The free wireless internet worked well, the shower was hot, and it had clean towels both days. The courtyard was very comfortable and worked great for late night drinks and card games. Pro, the manager, was awesome. He was friendly and wanted to make sure I enjoyed my stay. Breakfast was served in the courtyard and consisted of Dunkin Doughnuts, bagels, fruit and homemade coffee. Pro had the morning paper, ads, and magazines available to read. Only 4 parking spots in front lot. Pro charged $15/day to park there otherwise you have to use parking garage a block away for $15-25/day. Reading most of the other reviews, Gigi's was not what most people were expecting. The pictures are misleading, it is an old bulding it does need some maintenance. Its not ritzy and not your typical B&B, but it worked great for what we needed. If your looking for a cheap trip to hang on beach all day or walk the shops/restaurants and just looking for a bed to crash in at night - Gigi's is the place. I would stay here again.
"No! No No!"
02/06/13 jazzy1990 Loxahatchee, Florida
It took me 3 weeks to comment on this not sure what to call it! The shower did not function properly, the kitchen was yuck! Kitchen cabinets where off the hinges, hanging down! The tub did not drain! Washing my hair on my back under the tub spout was something else! Thank God we stayed only 2 days, we were so ready to leave! All I can say they knew we were coming! Fix the place up! Everyone save your dollars & stay somewhere else, you may leave feeling healthy! Shame on you management! Lots of competition around you, you need not be in the race! It was our 25th anniversary! Thanks a lot for the terrible memory! Hong Kong room scary! Frequent traveler, never again to your Bates Motel!
