I rather stay in hotels where the rooms are accessed through a corridor and not directly from the street, specially if the doors open outwards! But apart from that it was okay, with a nice refrigerator, table, closet, oven, a good bed, and conveniently close to the airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very friendly. The room was small but cozy.Genuine Expedia guest review
Horrible place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great price value!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was not what we expected for am Americas Best Value-it's an old motel in an industrial area-tho close to the airport (if you don't get lost like we did). They have tried to update it, but sould stand more work. The manager was very hospitatible and helpfull-we were late for happy hour & he coridally poured us a glass of wine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap and 5 minutes from airport"
Not at all luxury, but for that cheap a rate, what else do you expect. Room was fine, shower was disgusting. I was only there for one night (six hours to be exact) so just did not take a shower and was fine. Would not stay here for any more than 1 night, but perfect for a cheap night 5 min from the airportGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay over before Cruising was perfect"
I stayed here with my wife and two children as an overnight before leaving on a Cruise. The room was just what we needed; clean, comfortable, quiet and just perfect (including wifi). Everyone at the hotel was absolutely friendly, helpful and when we needed extra help with luggage issues and taxis, the staff went above and beyond to make sure our vacation […] was a success. This is certainly not the biggest hotel in the area, but the quality of the staff was better than most hotels I have ever stayed at. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You'd never know...Americas Best Airport, FLL"
I had a last minute need/desire to stay in FLL for one more night. Knowing it's spring break ,Easter Weekend not to mention I'm unemployed so finding something I could afford was challenging. I read the reviews for the hotel and thought to myself that they must have employees write positive reviews for them. Regarless they had availability and it was […] only one night so I would survive. I pulled up and cringed when I saw the place. I was greeted by the most awesome rep who was friendly, energetic, gave me directions etc. I went to my room and was delighted by the cleanliness and comfort of a newly updated room. The hotel was built in the 30's so there is only so much one can do as far as structure but honestly they have done everything and some to make this little place a home away from home. I'm trying to move to the area and got to know the Employees... I will refer there business to all I can and hopefully get to meet up with the wonderful people if and when I return to the area. Keep them in mind when looking for convenience, affordability and service. I don't think you'll be disappointed. P.S. They have a little happy hour and free breakfast....you'll laugh when you see how they make do it but cold beers at night and breakfast on the run.. it works thhe same as the fancy places you'd see!

"What a gem! 2nd time staying here"
This is a great hotel to stay at in Lauderdale. This hotel is truly a rare find. The owners have gone to great lengths to individually decorate each room and it's clear that they care about their business. i also enjoy the complementary glass of wine when i check in :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for the price"
Some of the bathroom fixtures were rusted. The curtains and shades did a poor job of keeping out the courtyard light; but the brightness of the courtyard enhanced the feeling of safety. Also, the hotel is a short block away from the Broward County Bus Line that runs right into the Fort Lauderdale Airport. That way, I saved some money on cabs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a-passin through?"
Not the cleanest or classiest place to stay, but not a dump by any means, not very soundproof either. Staff was friendly and had no problems, there's a beach about 2 miles away. For the "just passing through" traveler, it's a good place to hang your hat for a few nights, probably want something a bit better for as week's stay. For the Expedia deal I […] got, I can't complain as renting a car and hotel for 2 nights elsewhere would have easily cost me over $150 more. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"THE BEST PRICE AND PLACE EVERE. :D"
I don't like writing so let me break it down. 1. THE BEST AND CHEAPEST PRICE EVER 2. It looked like a MINI Studio, awesome :D 3. FANCY LOOKING, at least my room. 4. GREAT, GREAT service, the owner is awesome as well, friendly and funny 5.very very peacefull, NO NOISE, NO PEOPLE NOiCE 6. A semi Kitchen, A semi dining, and the GREAT ROOM. I mean i have […] never been to aplace with all that for a cheap price and no there were no insects, or rats, or mice, or whatever you find in a cheap place. I AM GOING BACK AGAIN, and ask for ROOM 11 :D, i mean why stay in a hotel and pay more, when this place is all I really need. My name is GEORGE and i RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.

"Surprising! Clean, Unique, Friendly - LOVED it"
I'm a business owner and I travel a LOT. I had an early flight out of lauderdale and this was the best priced place around. I was expecting a normal experience (ie. mildly disappointing)... instead i found myself in an adorable, recently-renovated, American-owned motel that had unique decor touches that i haven't seen in a place like this in ages. It […] was absolutely evident that the owner CARED and TOOK PRIDE in their business. Not fancy, but very clean.The beds were super comfy. The owners are the nicest people. I will definitely stay here again when i'm in Fort Lauderdale. A+++ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small and glorious"
Oftentimes the best things will come in small packages. This unassuming motel next to the port/airport was just such a jewel to discover. The room was large enough and the ownwer/manager could not have been more accomodating. Highly enjoyed!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"America's Best Inn-Fort Lauderdale"
I stayed there very recently. This is not a Hotel; It's a really old Motel. Even the Red MOTEL Sign is broken. I got in APPORX. at 12:00 A.M. and the credit card was charged already so I didn't have to many choices at that time. The springs on the bed of the room I was assigned were in bad shape. I even found a dead bug on top of the binder that have […] the "hotel" information in it. The A/C was making a noise through the night. I really had a bad experience during the stay.

"Close to airport, but cramped quarters"
For $$ /night, very small, cramped room. Not sure how any one over 200lb would ever fit in the bathroom. Was not there much, but it was close to the airport for the late arrival, and the cold beer was great for the forever flying day to be over. Would love to compare cost and amenities of other places close by.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"sometimes pictures lie"
I.booked this room for my mom who was returning from a cruise. Online the room looked nice when she arrive different story. This place is conviently near airport but has proven cheaper isn't always better I wish their was way I could get my money back. Called hotel to complain no one return my call.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"America's Best Inn - seen better days"
Drove by twice wondering if I was even on the right road before realizing I'd been passing the motel. The manager was very nice; yet, this property has seen better days. Now very tired and run down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Small place, eleven rooms, but top quality hospitality. These folks actually sponsor a daily happy hour from 5-7PM. Unheard of! It was a highlight of my trip. I'd stay there again definitely.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The bed frame was broken so it was like being on a boad with all the rocking. Not a nice place.Genuine Expedia guest review

6th time me and wife stayed their. 5 minutes to the airport(ft lauderdale-hollywood intl airport) owner and staff real accommondating and friendly. they have happy hour for the guest at 4pm. you must stay there and most important very good rates for the area. Tom and DianeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Older property. Clean and some nice touches by the proprieter. He is trying to make it comfortable and inviting. It is not the best I have ever stayed in and by far not the worst. I am frequently in that area and WILL stay there again. Kudos to sole prioritized making small business work!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The place is economical, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the management appears to be trying. But I would give this place two stars rather than three. My room smelled of paint, the phone didn't work, and the faucet dripped rather persistently.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was in a bad area. The shower and tub were painted so paint was chipping off the tub and it was old. The card for the room said always keep deadbolt lock and that was not comforting at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"America's Best Inn, maybe not the best, but ok"
i stayed 4 nights. "art deco charm" ... painting tile doesn't fix it, you have to fix tile for real and clean the grout. shower didn't drain fast enough to avoid an inch of water over your feet, shoddy plaster patches in restroom, sink doesn't turn off unless you really wrench on the nob, then it still drips, an exhaust fan might stop the paint from […] peeling and molding. comfy bed, strange decor (culture club album cover framed on the wall actually was kinda cool but still strange) The closet was all moldy and had a towel on the ground to catch water leaking in from the shower, Could have been made into a cool/funky room with a little investment but just had the 3rd world funky thing going on, and a large cockroach visited but this is south florida so not really a big deal. I've stayed in much worse, but i've stayed cheap hotels in indonesia. I actually did kind of like the place, and the staff, but still... a little effort people...

"Great for the money"
This motel is a little hard to find at night, and looks a little scary from the outside and the surrounding neighborhood. However, inside the room was clean,comfortable and much higher quality than the price would suggest. The owner was very pleasant and had obviously done a lot of renovations and upgrades. The bed was very comfortable, the bed linens […] were high quality and clean, the bathroom was spotless and the room had an HD television and new sofa. Great access to the airport, without airplane noise. Don't let the neighborhood put you off, great for the money. I would stay there again for sure. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"America's Best Inn at Ft Lauderdale Airport"
The hotel personnel are courteous, friendly and they give you a beer or soft drink at check in. The downside is that the hotel room maintenance is poor and the rooms are in need of rugs and a thorough cleaning. Room cleanliness suffers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

A crummy place. Ants in room. Dirty duvet. Dirty, threadbare carpet. Walls need painting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Americans Best INN * Fort Lauderdale AIRPORT"
For a Business Man or a Man staying alone that wants to be less than 1 mile from the Airport it is perfect. The Staff couldn't be any nicer or professional. When you pull up the hotel is surrounded by a Industrial Setting. This hotel doesn't have a sign. I wouldn't take my wife or family here but as much as I travel there is not much that I have not […] experienced. It is clean, everything worked in the room. The Desk Clerks were funny, they said don't judge us by our outside cover, you will like us inside. It really is nothing to fear, nobody on the streets, plenty of places to eat close by. For the traveling working man or a man needing quick access to Ft Lauderdale Airport you can't beat it. I would and probably stay here again. Price was not bad. This Hotel was constructed in 1939 and I believe it hasn't been updated since the day they had the ribbon cutting. . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"They are trying."
The people were very friendly, but it's basically a flop house, and I didn't feel very safe there. They've cleaned it up and are trying, but as a female traveling alone, I decided to leave and go somewhere else.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by America's Best Inn - Fort Lauderdale Airport Are hotel is located Just Blocks from the Air Port and Port Everglades. We are surrounded by rental car Storage Lots, and although the area is industrial it is quiet save and convenient
"Good deal for the $"
Hotel needs work, but is improving. Very helpful and friendly staff. Location is warehouse-type district near airport parking, but that should not turn anyone off. Very safe and quiet at night. Very close to airport, and Cruise port and Highways, and Beach. A very good deal for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
If price is your only consideration... ok. Otherwise I'd strongly suggest one of the other airport hotels. There is no shuttle so expect a 10 to 15 dollar cab ride. The hotel is in a shady area. The rooms are way below average. Carpeting is worn, shower was rusted and stained, etc. But it was inexpensive, so there's that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"America's Best Inn-Ft Lauderdale, convenient"
America's Best Inn-Ft Lauderdale - it's a bit off the beaten track, & slightly hard to find. It's a basic motel room, very close to the airport. Has all the basic requirements, though the room was small, the bed was comfortable & the room was clean & was decorated with some interesting pictures & posters - not just the usual bland motel fare. In addition […] the staff were all friendly, cheerful & helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a small, almost retro motel but really cozy. the people in the office were great. My sister and i stayed in the unit with a separate kitchenette and it was perfect for us. the only negative was that the bathroom was very small for two women to share, but we would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was only one night, but it was excellent. I am a vegetarian, and the office was stocked with lots of fruits, and the fruits were at my disposal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Don't go for something just for the price."
The hotel was close to the airport and we were going on a cruise the next day so we stayed here to save on cab fair and hotel. the hotel is far from everything and in an industrial district. there are two places to eat that you have to walk to and are about a mile maybe 1 and 1/2. the service at lesters is terrible and the food is very expensive and […] almost unedible. go for a 100 dollar room in downtown fort lauderdale or just pay the cab at first and stay in miami, which is nice.

I wasn't expecting a luxury hotel to begin with, so I was not disappointed. The place is decent at an affordable rate in a good quiet location. I would return here. having a fridge was wonderful!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfectly reasonable for the price"
We stayed here for a short night before an early flight from FLL. It was a small room, but clean and comfortable--this is not a luxury hotel, but the service is good and it's really close to the airport. About 15 minutes walking from food, so it's probably best to have a car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right price, close to port"
If you just need a bed to sleep for the night before a cruise, this is the place. Extremely convenient to both FLL and Port Everglades. Staff very friendly and helpful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An Insult to Hotels.com"
When you think of hotels.com you think of high standards but this hotel is way below the standards of a rat. I have stayed in nice reasonable price hotels before but i wouldn't pay a dollar to have this experience over again. The price i paid i could have gotten a full tank of gas and slept in my car. To begin with my wife and I had reservations for […] the Marriott for the next two days and we arrived early so we needed a room for the night we called hotels.com to get a hotel cause of our 13 hr drive to go on a cruise. After making the reservations we tried to locate the hotel but could not because it was so small with no sign outside. After calling the hotel the manager guided us there and it had a small sign in the window. He stated that he was upgrading us to the suite because of the other rooms. When entered into the door the smell was horrible and indescribable. There where yellow stains on the white sheets and white stains on the black futon along with black carpet stains. The shower had an open bar of soap on the shower floor. There was a lot of drug activity and intimate encounter transactions going on. The neighborhood was too scary to get out of the car but trusted because of hotels.com. The manager refused to see the room and stated that there was nothing he could do that we had to contact hotels.com cause they are the ones who took our credit card information. We didn't even go back into the room we gave him the keys and left the hotel immediately. We then called the Marriott and explained to them what happened and because we had next day reservations and they wanted our anniversary experience to be a good one they gave us a deal for 20.00 more than what we paid for at this so called hotel. I will leave the customer service experience with hotels.com up to you because all this happened within an hour of making reservations and someone else profited from this experience and wasn't us.
