"more than what was expected"
The place is great if you are looking for a cozy place to sleep and relax, from the reviews I read I was kind of nervous thinking it was going to be dingy, but it was not, the bed comfortable, and the room smelt fresh, there is not many amenities offered there is coffee and bagels in the morning which is great to get the day started but the beach is […] right down the street a three minute walk and shops and restaurants a 10 minute walk, it was a nice hotel and I would recommend it and would stay again.

"Piece of Heaven"
We stayed at the Drift Hotel for a long weekend to get away from the cold weather in NY. The Hotel was recently renovated and was perfect for what we wanted, a place to stay near the beach and restaurants/activities. We had thought that not having a pool would be a issue as my husband gets very antsy just sitting at the beach, but the location allowed […] us to visit the local pubs, bike, fish, and eat great! Complimentary parking was a plus, but a car is not necessary in the Fort Lauderdale beach area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Drift Hotel was Great?"
Here for one night stay following return from a cruise, Hotel staff was very helpful as well as cheerful. Enjoyed the convenient location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute and Clean"
This is a little mom and pop place that provides a nice clean place to stay. No frills , but close to the beach and places to eat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay there again"
Close enough walking distance to bars n eatery. Bathroom was small no sink/counter space for your stuff had to use toilet seat lid. No fridge to keep water bottles. No breakfast. Thin walls you can hear everything. But other than that very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location for Ft. Lauderdale Beach Strip"
When I picked Gigi's I read the reviews before hand. I knew the location was great and close to where I needed to be. I also knew that I would only need to stay there for a place to sleep one night. If you plan on staying there for any time other than sleeping - don't do it. If you need an affordable place to stay within walking distance of the heart […] of the Ft. Lauderdale strip, and you are not an absolute clean freak, then it may be worth the money you save. FLL strip is not cheap, so saving money on the hotel was worth it to me.

"Old school Florida hotel"
Gigi's is like a beach hotel I used to go to in the 80's. It is small and nice. If you want a Hyatt, look elsewhere. It does have need some work in places but we still loved it. Our favorite thing was breakfast. It is very simple but everyone just eats around a single table in the shady courtyard. We met such nice people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a dump."
First and last time I'll let Expedia pick my hotel. The website for Gigi's Resort by the Beach was totally misleading. It looked cute and quaint; it was tacky and run-down. Our bathroom wasn't clean (the manager was apologetic - he cleaned it himself), there was no hot water, there weren't even glasses or soap in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Creepy manager walked in without knocking"
Manager walked in without knocking and we checked outGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Beach location."
Great spot for 2 or 3 nights. Needs a lot of cosmetic work. Owner is a great guy!! Beds were clean. Definitely not the Hilton.Genuine Expedia guest review
"need to improve"
close to beach but place needs lots of updates, room was not clean, place needs lots of repairs, lacks amenities, seek others before booking here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gigi's London Room"
My husband and I stayed here only for one night it was such a cute place the owner is a very nice man who lives on site. We woke up in the morning to fresh coffee and bagels. Overall the experience was great.We would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel manager was very rude. Room was not all that clean. But location is difficult to beat. Would not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance to bars, food, the Strip"
Great location, motel run-down, no hot water-Here for 1 night onlyGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was in a state of disrepair and looked dirty in generalGenuine Expedia guest review
"Adorable hideaway quiet hotel steps from the beach"
Staff was so welcoming and accommodating. The room was unique and comfortable and private.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A More Quiet South Beach-like Location"
I was impressed with the location overall. They were more than happy to let me do a late check in, the room was quaint, much like it would be better suited to be an apartment. The neighborhood was great, wonderful food, the boardwalk, we had a real nice time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location for price"
The location is superb. Free parking is a huge plus for the area! The employee was super nice. However, the room I was in needs a DEEP cleaning. For the price, an excellent value but be prepared to do a little cleaning yourself when you arrive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not clean, old, never going back nor suggestingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room in terrible condition"
From previous reviews I did not expect the room to be in good condition. But upon arrival I saw yellow spots on the toilet seat which were no doubt urine. Disgusting. There was foam on shower curtain. Bed sheets did not look clean and I don't really believe they changed the sheets. The curtain rod was broken and fell off. I dont have problem with old […] rooms but at least make it clean! To be fair the location was really good and the hotel has free parking (although when I arrived on july 4th it was full) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Classic art deco"
For the money an excellent experience. Not a $400/night big towels and lots of staff place but quaint and relaxed. Staff was most friendly and eager to help. Not fancy, not high end, but comfortable. Excellent location. If you're looking for a fun, low cost place , this is it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gigi's what a deal"
We had a wonderful get away weekend all to ourselves at Gigi's, or that is how it felt. We don't need fancy to be satisfied and that's a good thing. Not fancy, simple and wonderful, much more our style!!! Manager was beyond awesome, making coffee early for us once he realized we were up and going prior to scheduled breakfast time. The best grapes I […] have ever had.... Will do it again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Shady smelly cracked celing room"
Admittedly, the clerk was very nice in that we booked late and he waited for us to arrive. Yet, for a B and B breakfast was not served until 8 and we had to leave at 7 for a flight out of FLL. He said he would come down by 7 but we didn't see him when we were hurrying out away from the room around 7. The ceiling was cracked and chipping. It smelled […] like a hospital or nursing home. The air conditioner blew right on me in bed. The bathroom was very hot. We were so skeeved out we didn't even want to use the shower. It was definitely not worth $143 for nine hours of non-sleep because we were so freaked out by the place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not to be recommended"
The general condition and appearance of the hotel was poor. Our room was just acceptable. The bathroom was absolutely appalling! The ceiling had a large damp stain which was bulging. The toilet roll holder was broken and stained. The faucets were severely stained with limescale and goodness knows what else. There are broken wall tiles. Finally the presentation […] of breakfast was minimal in quantity, the facilities where to eat are poor. The only option was to eat outside and no provision for eating inside or under cover in adverse weather conditions. I would not recommend this hotel at all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"My Opinion about Gigi's hotel"
The room was ugly and with moisture. I didn't like the hotel in general.Genuine Expedia guest review
hotel manager was very nice other then that place needs a major upgradeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best value. Best location"
We changed hotels mid trip due to horrible conditions at our other hotel. This one was along the same price range so we took advantage of this place. Rooms were very unique, quaint, and relaxing. A bit lacking in the maintenance overall but for the value and location to Fort Lauderdale Beach I could see us staying here again. The family that runs this […] was very friendly and accommodating. Showed us rooms so we could pick out which we liked. Had a small kitchen. Certainly not the best you will find but I did find it very cozy and affordable. Worth trying!

"Truly not a resort"
The hotels in Ft. Lauderdale are ridiculously expensive due to few options for travelers. This hotel was beneath the expectations of what was paid for the stay. The room was in poor maintenance and the views were of a parking lot and an alley. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the parking was free, but this hotel was shoe horned in between two […] other buildings so it felt like a dungeon. It stated it was a non-smoking site, but smoking is allowed in the garden area and when that occurs the entire compound reeks of smoke. Our room was on the bottom floor and we had to hold our breath to go from our room out to the street. My advice: If your going to spend this kind of money, spend a little more and get a nicer place!

"Worst Hotel Ever"
Terrible experiance - When I arrived at hotel no one was in the office. The worst hotel I have ever seen. It should be taken off market. I blame Expedia for having this property as option. THE WORST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOOOO Dirty -Genuine Expedia guest review
Bagel & coffee does not equal breakfast ..!! Shower was unbearable with 2 pin holes for the water to come out which felt like the water was cutting your skin..!! Towel rack falling off the wall... Mold around air conditioner & wall deteriorating...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was very disappointed with the overall condition of the hotel. It's not the worst I've ever seen, but for the price and the location I was expecting more. There was no phone in my room and the one outside barely worked. The free breakfast was very unhealthy and didn't look sanitary or fresh. The hotel staff was very unprofessional and mean spirited. […] However, things got better on the second day. The hotel is perfectly situated on the beach, walking distance to everything which is why I chose it in the first place. If you can overlook the small stuff as I did, this isn't a bad place to stay. Very secure and quiet. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Funky but very comfortable and very nice ownership"
I enjoyed this room very much. Great location. Very nice owner. Very funky motel but clean and convienent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very disappointing :("
The good thing about my stay here was that i just needed this hotel for 1 night because of a wedding i was attending and i didn't want to drive back home drunk. I understand when a place is old, but what i do not understand is when you let-the-place-go into shambles. I stayed in the Venice room, the roof was showing signs of mold and it was peeling […] off the ceiling, there was no wifi. For the price I paid here, i could've gone to a closer place from where the wedding was taking place and paid less, but i chose this one because it had 'nice pictures'. Never Again..

Hotel was fine, a little dated but the owners were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"THIS HOTEL IS HORRIBLE DONT WASTE YOUR TIME&MONEY"
the windows were broken, AC not working with cracks in the walls and what looked to be molding on the windows. Owner told me and I quote "Window is not broken its just cracked" REALLY!! there is a piece of the window missing!! horrible we went to the Westin near the beach best decision ever dont let Gigis ruin your vacationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No one was there when we arraived.we check the room and it s smells and every thing was old.the breakfast was terrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Gigi's was an historic inviting landing spot amidst the family oriented life of the Fort Lauderdale Beach community. The quaint quiet location was the perfect setting to rest your head comfortably at night ready to have a quick bite and head to the beach the next morning. Great location and excellent hospitality staff I will absolutely return for a […] stay when next I find myself in For Lauderdale. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Gigi's was very friendly and convienant for the price we payed. The location was perfect! Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shops. The hotel is old but clean and comfortable. I would definetely stay here again and would recommand this hotel to other guests. It's a great deal for the price. They also have a continental breakfast and free […] parking space.

"Gigi's Good Bad Ugly"
The Good: Manager is very nice and Gigi's is very close to the beach. The Bad The entire place needs to be cleaned and updated- The ugly- the hot water took over 20 minutes just to begin to warm up, the toilet wasn't cleaned, one of the windows was broken.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a REALLY bad hotel. Very run down. No hot water. The pictures were very deceptive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I would not even let my pet stay there!! :(Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nightmare in Fort Lauderdale"
We needed a place for 1night... We should have picked another hotel.. Like another review said, the pictures has nothing to do with the real place... Everything was falling apart, the toilet moved on the floor, water did not heat fast and lasted only a little, towels were old, there was hair from the previous guests on the bathroom floor, wood flooring […] was creaking at every step, dirty bed sheets, not garanteed a parking space (otherwise we would have to go somewhere and pay), we didn't even wanted to try their continental breakfast... We could go on, but we just wanted to picture the idea... Don't go there! We are not joking!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unacceptable room condition"
We arrived late to check in, about 2:00am. There was no attendant available, although a note was left for us that our room door was unlocked and to help ourselves. In my opinion, this creates an unsafe atmosphere as anyone could have entered the room, without staff present. In addition, a few of the windows in the room were literally jagged broken, […] and it was a very cold night for Florida. We could not stay as the room would have dropped to 40 degrees that night. A completely horrible situation to get into. Simply stated, you would likely be wise to avoid this place unless your a college kid on spring break and don't care about the conditions and/or safety.

"A Clean, Quiet, Convenient, Low-Budget Hotel"
Gigi's is very basic -- nothing fancy -- but perfectly serviceable, convenient, and its proprietor goes out of his way to make his guests comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very friendly. My boyfriend and I stayed there for 3 days but I don't recall housekeeping knocking on the door. The room was clean but the bathroom not so much. I could actually hear the people staying in the room next to us.Genuine Expedia guest review

Stayed one night. Location was great. Hotel was fairly run down but we spent the time down on the beatch front. Area is excellent for bar/restaurants and music. Ok for one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
