"Not up to Expedia's typical hotel"
While this hotel might be ok for those not concerned with cleanliness and reasonable space, it did not meet our expectations. We arrived very late after midnight, as scheduled, but if we had arrived a few hours earlier we would have not stayed here. The room was barely big enough for the queen bed, the bathroom was not as clean as we were expected, […] there was not enough room for a tub, and the hot water faucet was broken in the sink. I'm fine with Red Roof or Holiday Inn Express quality and this room, though about the same room cost, was far below. Story short, if you would like a decent room with basic, expected hotel amenities, steer clear. The proprietor was very nice, but that did not make up for the room. A sign that greeted us indicated "Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Rates". I think that says it all. At least we now have a travel 'war story' to tell our friends! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Closeness to airport and cruise ship"
Was there two times for only one night each. Did not get a chance to have breakfast or any other meals at the hotel due to the times of arrival and departure. Front desk service was very atentive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to airport and Fox rental car"
This hotel was perfect for what we needed--a block from where we needed to return our rental car and close to the airport for an early morning flight. The room was very comfortable EXCEPT that hot water in the shower was very intermittent making half or more of the shower in cold water!!! The breakfast was fine except that there was cereal and no milk […] and instant oatmeal and no hot water. If you wanted tea, there would have been no hot water for that. The owner was very, very nice and allowed me to print our boarding passes on his computer. I would find it hard to recommend the place until the water and breakfast issues were fixed.

"The staff was wonderful."
The bed was a bit uncomfortable, but as I stated the staff was great and I was basically there for a few hours due to a late flight. There are a few repairs needed but for a little mom and pop or bed and breakfast type of Inn it was cozy.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Made a Mistake"
When I saw the name, I mistakenly assumed "America's Best Value Inn." There was no phone in the room. The A/C-Heater unit didn't work. For $15.00 more, I could have stayed at a nearby Comfort Suites and had shuttle service to/from the airport. Before staying at this property, spend the extra for something else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by America's Best Inn - Fort Lauderdale Airport We are so sorry you did not enjoy your stay....And in the future should you experience a maintence problem I.E And air not working as I assure you it would have been promptly repaired after all we are in South Florida and realize the importance of working air....

"Ft. Lauderdale airport/cruise hotel"
This small hotel is very close to the airport and cruise dock. That is the positive. Room very small. Bathroom tiny. Breakfast meager. Hotel has no sign so I drove right past it, stopped at another place and got redirected to America's Best. At $89, cheapest hotel around there, and ok for a night's stay, but not much...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Reasonable accomodations for overnight since close to both airport and cruise port,but no transport to either included despite advertised free transport from airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by America's Best Inn - Fort Lauderdale Airport We are sorry for any confusion over the Transportation. We are very close to both the airport and cruise port....We do not have a shuttle. A Taxi from the Airport is Just 12.00 (return to Airport 10.00) We do have a third party shuttle to Port Everglades for 6.00 per person thank you for your comments. CT Owner
"Good location, clean but old, helpful employees"
It was in a very convenient location. A commercial neighborhood but near the airport, seaport and shopping. The motel is old, but kept clean. There was always someone at the front desk if assistance was needed and they were all helpful with directions. Nice continental breakfast each morning including coffee. Room was large with separate kitchen area […] with coffee maker, small fridge, sink and microwave. Free WiFi in the room was nice and makes this a real bargain. FYI: the manager said that it was scheduled to be torn down in May, 2014 to be rebuilt and renamed as an eight story Microtel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staff is Honest"
I left a bag and they saved it for meGenuine Expedia guest review
"bathroom sewage odor"
One positive: location and proximate to venue, walking distance. The room #14 has an awful sewer smell emanating from bathroom. Had to keep door closed at all time., likewise if you needed to use the bathroom, leave the door open. Only one small vanity mirror in "bathroom"'. The furniture was dirty and filled with lots of layers of dust and dirt. The […] bed was beyond noisy just to move on your side would wake you up. Good thing that I was there for the location to an amazing Halloween party. Otherwise, I'd say - stay away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Can't believe Expedia would book anyone this hotel"
I was booking a hotel that I'd seen on Expedia for Ocala FL and having probs w/my laptop so I called to book it. Asked if she could help me w/a hotel for Ft Lauderdale near Port Everglades as we were boarding our ship for a cruise the next morning. She said she had a hotel 5 min from the port so I booked it sight unseen. We called because we couldn't […] find it and he talked us in. The sign for America's Best Inn was in a small window and there were two young men, one with a dog, hanging out on the little porch at the manager's office. Once to the room we opened the door and it was the smallest room I'd ever seen. The wall air conditioner was set on 64 but we both had sweat rolling down our faces. The manager came and low and behold there was no filter in it so there was black dirt all over the compressor. He procedes to wipe off the dirt with his hands falling on the carpet! Finally we could feel a little cool air and he left. We slept with no covers because it never got cool enough. My husband actually called my oldest daughter that night to tell her if she didn't hear from us by 11am to call the police he was so freaked out by this hotel and it's location!! She'd looked up the hotel and it was 1 1/2 stars!! I can't believe that Expedia would give me an expensive hotel with such a low rating....very disappointed. Oh yeah,the continental breakfast was in the office-single wrapped muffins,fruit and single serve cereal w/a gallon milk container and OJ in the fridge.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel seems nice in the beginning, then you lay on the bed and all you feel is springs in the mattress. When you want to go to the pool, we were told it would be up and running that same evening, meanwhile we were there for three days and it still wasn't fixed. They have a grill to use but you have to buy your own charcoal. Breakfasts were not that […] ideal, cereal and packaged pastries. The staff is friendly but it doesn't make up for everything else.

"Not aesthetic but nice"
This is certainly not the Hilton but for an inexpensive hotel it was quite nice, though with some reservations. Room itself was quite spacious and pleasant. Bathroom was in need of some sprucing up. The shower was clean but really could use a glazing. Handle to plug the sink was missing but I didn't need that anyway. But the shower head was nearly new […] and it worked great. People were quite pleasant and though it is near the airport, I was never disturbed by noise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"What was I thinking?!"
Not sure what prompted me to book this hotel. It must have been the price. It is about 70 years old, like those old motels you see in bad movies. It is located near the Ft. Lauderdale airport, but in a quasar industrial area. Our room was very small.Genuine Expedia guest review
I wouldn't let my dog stay in this hotel I couldn't stay it was very nasty at 3am I checked in and 3:30 am I checked out it was the worst ever very dirty sheets and shower curtains had pink stains just badGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Nice Surprise"
I booked this room for $60 and was not expecting much, however it was and AMAZING stay over before heading to Key West the next day. The staff was helpful and friendly, the room was small (which was fine!), cozy and clean. If you happen to need a buget friendly place to kill some time near the Ft Lauderdale airport, this is certainly the place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good stay.... For the $"
Stayed 2 nights. Never before has the saying "You get what you pay for" applied better than here. The place is pretty run down and the room was small. The bathroom was literally 3' wide. The best part of the stay was the staff. Vey friendly and personable. Wouldnt be my first choice if I go back to town but wouldnt rule it out either.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really close to the FLL airport!"
Wonderful hotel keepers. Small property with easy access to the airport for our early morning flight. City bus at the corner takes you right to FLL (first stop) for just $1.75. It's not the Ritz at all but it's clean and a great value if you're just overnighting. Beautiful outdoor pool! SixT Car rental place and post office just steps away. Yes, it's […] something of an industrial looking neighborhood off the highway but a short 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk takes you to "Lester's"- easily one of the best and most popular diners we've ever been to! Not to be missed if you're in town or hungry late at night. Funny quirky little motel but we're really glad we found it. Thanks Everett for your hospitality! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay was very depressing, I had to move to a different hotel. This place should be advertised as a low end motel, advertised otherwise is very misleading. I had to pay $73.00 for one night at this place, it was not acceptable. Certainly, I will stay away from this place and be very careful of hotel. Com in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very poor front desk service"
Breakfast ridiculous, Front Desk service leaves a great deal to be desired, Front Desk shows total disregard to the clients' needs, bed in very bad condition. Stay was really awful and the experience has been a horrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was helpful and welcoming. Room was not up to standard even if it was free. This hotel needs a renovation. I stayed long enough to use the wireless and find another hotel. Was embarrassed to have taken my wife there. America's Best need to inspect this hotel, I am sure they would remove their name for it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Looks can be deceiving"
I must say when I pulled up on this place I was scared because it has a neon sign that says "motel" which wasn't want I thought I booked but when i came into my room i was pleasantly surprised at how decent it was. It was tiny but for one night it worked quite well. They even have a little continental breakfast. If you're just passing thru inbetween […] travel or flights this is a nice little pit stop.

"didn't like the location"

All around horrible and disgusting! And staff was rudeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was fine just the building was a little datedGenuine Expedia guest review
The appearance of the hotel needs a lot of care. There needs to be a sign that is permanently placed for the hotel. The hotel clerk, Chris, made the trip extremely enjoyable. His customer service was exceptional. Just a few little landscaping changes will help to up grade the hotel rating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"All around poor service/hotel"
I was very unsatisified wsith everything about the hotel. There was a hole stuffed with a piece of paper towel in the bathroom ceiling, the sink was almost falling off the wall,and the service was horrible. Housekeeping was very forceful and was visually upset when we didn't want her services. Hotel is located in a bad area. I would never recemmend […] this hotel to anyone and will never stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Acceptable place to stay near the cruise ships"
I wasn't expecting much for the price we paid but it was acceptable for what we were looking for. Just a place to sleep for the night and to be close to where the cruise ship were. All worked out good and I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for the same sort of stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Americas Best Inn"

"Great Hotel for a Cancelled Flight"
I don't know why other people gave this place bad reviews. Sure it's a cheap hotel in a not-so-hot neighborhood, but for the money you pay you get great value. My wife & I got stuck overnight in Fort Lauderdale due to a storm cancelled flight, and this was the first hotel recommended. The staff was friendly, knowlegable, and helpful. The room was spotlessly […] clean, and there was even a little side room off the main bedroom with bunkbeds for children. The cable TV and WiFi were first rate. Now, there was some blistering paint in the bathroom, but nothing really bad, and it was small. By cab it's less than 10 minutes from the airport. Almost walkable, if you don't have too much baggage.

"Professional staff makes up for a lot"
The negative reviews here are not fair. It's located in an industrial area, but it is completely safe. The staff were some of the most professional I've ever seen and I've stayed all over. I would not hesitate to come back here again for the money it's absolutely perfect. The building looks like it does because it is considered an historical building, […] and the owners take that very serious. Amenities are top notch, in a cab ride to the beach is about $10. I would recommend this to my friends and family. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The worst place i ever stayed... Nasty Small don't waste your money or time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Quiet, good night's sleep in a motel straight out of a 40's movie. Very clean. Freshly decorated. Exceptionally friendly, caring, accommodating hosts. Would return. By the way, along with English, they speak Danish. Experience this "blast from the past" before it is replaced by their new 14-story tower soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
"cheapest but then you get what you pay for"

room not bad for one night stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Felt very uncomfortable in the neighborhood. The desk gentleman was very nice but our room was not. The bed was like sleeping on a teeter totter. The bathtub was in need of replacement. The room was very dreary. Would not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not really that bad"
I read the mixed reviews here prior to booking this. I was only staying one night before a cruise and wanted to stay in a convenient location and not spend beach hotel prices. The courtyard area is very quaint and relaxing. I had clean bedding and clean towels. My room my nicely decorated. The staff was very courteous. I had a fridge, microwave, and […] coffee maker. At first I thought they didn't work but then I realized the outlet was wired to a switch on the wall. It is in serious need of new bathroom fixtures. I had a shower stall, no bathtub. But the floor of the shower was so black from being old and worn, I don't even think sandblasting would get it clean. The area is industrial but it's all airport related businesses such as car rental places and shuttle van services. There was traffic activity all night but I really didn't hear any noise. The hotel was sold out that night and I did not hear the neighbors, There is a Wings and Things (?) restaurant a block and a half away, could easily walk to it. There are plenty of food places that deliver. I felt relatively safe staying here. They offer a reception in the evening with wine and beer, and breakfast with wrapped danishes. This is the kind of hotel you would use for just one night before traveling on to something else. I would not stay here for a week long trip. It served my purpose and I would stay again for the same purpose. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Very old, but staff was very helpful..not in a good location. They are getting ready to tear it down to rebuild.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Trip back in time"
Staying here was like going back to 1950's with the room not updated since then. Surrounding neighborhood is dismal. Local chains are about same price and much better. We only ended up here because of last minute plans during a busy season. Only advantage: close to FLL airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was built in 1920-30 and hasn't had much of anything done to it since. Driving down the street I would never stop at this hotel. The bath wasn't more than a converted closet. Holes in the wall. And grossly over priced for what it is. I have stayed in nicer places for $30.00 a night rather than the $100-$150 per night I was charged for two […] night. Because of condition and location I felt insecure causing me to tie the door shut with parachute cord. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient to attending school for a day"
Convenient for coming over from the other coast in attending class around the corner down the street early the next day. Good meal at Lester's restaurant close by also.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too bad, but nothing fancy"
I got in late on a business trip. At first it seemed that the surrounding neighborhood was a little undesirable; its on the outskirts of the airport and there is a few rental car agencies and a small apt complex. But by the next day I realized the neighborhood was perfectly safe. It was also just a short drive to all the local businesses you may need […] to visit on 17th st. So that was incredibly convenient. The room was nothing fancy. It did have everything I needed; desk, ironing board, coffee maker, and mini fridge. The bed was fairly comfortable. The one qualm I had was that when I arrived late at night the blinds did not work and could not be closed. I just put a blanket over the window because I was too tired to complain and wait to have it fixed. I did tell them upon check out so it should be fixed. The place was not fancy but for the price if I have to go back to Ft Lauderdale and don't have a ton of money to spend on a fancy hotel, I would probably go back.

"close to Ft. Lauderdale Airport"
The hotel night mgr. was a wonderful person who gave me excellent directions when I called because I was lost. He also had some wine out (chardonnay & merlot) for me because he wanted to offer me something after having been lost and caught in some traffic. He also gave me some yogurt containers because I commented on the fact that I didn't stop for […] dinner and also an apple. Re the room: the bed and linens were clean. However, the small bathroom left a lot to be desired. I needed to take a shower and the shower stall had some hair on the walls that were defintely not my hair, including hair that appeared to be from the reproductive areas of a body. I would have never gone to that hotel if there had been vacancies in the hotel chains I normally stay in. The night mgr. did say that the owners were going to demolish the existing hotel structure and build an 8 story microtel. Regardless, I don't think I will be staying at an Americas Best Inn hotel anywhere ever again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
