the initial appearance was that of a hybrid convenience store and flea market. There was also a perculier odor which, to me, seemed like a combination of dirty socks, rancid food, mold, and pine sol. The manager, Izzy, was nice and did a good job at organizing the masses to get to their cruise shuttle. However, when using the microphone he must have […] thought he was a stand-up comedian because he would throw in a joke here and ther. Problem was that the jokes were inappropriate and lewd. He offended the elderly in from of a large geriatric population and also told sexually inappropriate jokes in front of children. It was uncomfortable. The sofas and chjair were obviously old and soiled. I was nervous to sit on the. The outside patio, by an exit door, had an old table and dinning room chairs, just sitting there by a pile of either an old tarp or an outdated rug. All items had been there a very long time as evidenced by the weather wear of them all. The room walls seem to be paper thin. You can hear everything from your neighbors room. Everything. I went to wash my face and found an old washcloth, at once white, which was so grey and soiled that I thought the cleaning lady perhaps forgot that she left it in the bathroom. However, the other washcloths and towels were in a similar state.The pool water was murky and had floating hair mats, bugs, and other debris. I did not like my stays. I did, however, love the gals at the front desk. They were 5 star. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Pre-Cruise Location..."
4 nite stay prior to SCarib Cruise ... was able to easily explore A1A north to Deerfield Beach and South to South Beach ...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stay at Rodeway Inn"
It was good for what we needed. A place to sleep and eat between airplanes. Funky but clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok hotel with cruise port shuttle"
It was ok. You get what you pay for. We used the room in order to catch a cruise. Not much more to say. Good for a one night stay.Genuine Expedia guest review

It's ok not bad and believe me when I say everything is for sale.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nothing is free!!!"
Advertise free shuttle to cruises and airport but when you get in there is a sign saying $3 minimum per person plus it does get crazy waiting for them ay cruiseship they have so many to pick up. We got to room about 11;30 am after cruise and all the rooms were ready but you couldn't go to your room till 3pm unless you pay extra $20, which most were […] doing. That doesn't seem right, although it did say 3pm. In PA if they have a room ready they will give it to you early. But pool area very nice and breakfast was good. Other complaint was older hotel means noisey air conditioner that kept me awake part of the night Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for cruisers"
Good hotel offering lots of services (free and/or reasonable priced) for people taking cruises (to/from Port Everglades). General Manager (Izzy) goes out of his way to keep guests informed of upcoming hotel shuttles to/from CruisePort and Airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Super close to the airport"
It is literally a 3-5 minute drive from the airport. The rooms are pretty dingy, as well as the lobby. The shuttle driver almost made us late for our flight because he did not follow the sign up list for the shuttle. And took 2 other people who did not sign up instead of us. But he came back and picked us up 15 min later. Meanwhile we were stuck in […] the dingy hotel lobby before breakfast started at 6 am. Overall, if you need somewhere to sleep close to the airport, this is an option. Just not a great one. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly staff and ease of getting around"
I enjoyed my stay because the hotel was a getaway, my room was clean, comfortable, and the staff was amazingly helpful. I enjoyed the fact that the hotel had so many amenities: free breakfast, free airport shuttle, cheap shuttle prices to local places for shopping, nice courtyard with a pool, and if you want an adventure there is a bus stop on the same […] block.

"OK for a 1 Night Stop for Cruisers"
The free shuttle from the airport was great. He was to our gate within a couple minutes of me calling. VERY friendly shuttle driver. Check-in was fast and painless. We got the free wifi code and free breakfast vouchers upon check in. There is noting in walking distance from the hotel Thankfully they had a small store, and a restaurant which is like […] a sports bar. It has a ton of screens so we got to watch March Madness basketball. The hotel had older motel feel. A small pool, I didn't notice a spa/jacuzzi which I was hoping they had. The room was basic, no frills, larger than I expected though. The walls of the room were paper thin, you could hear everything the folks were saying the surrounding rooms. But, for 1 night it was bearable. The free breakfast was fine (waffles were surprisingly soft and delicious). During breakfast the hotel started making loud announcements over the PA system announcing shuttle times to the airport and cruise port. They were very organized and systematic. The cruise port shuttle worked out perfectly. Be prepared to give a tip to your driver. Overall it was an ok experience, nothing grand, but it was all we needed to get from the airport, have a clean place to lay our heads, eat dinner and breakfast and head to the port. For the price, it was worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good if you're passing thru"
I only stayed for a night the room was clean bed was comfortable, I do have to add that the lobby was very different and colorful. The girl that checked me in was wonderful but BEWARE if you check in before 3:00pm it will cost you $$ a ridiculous fee considering I checked in at 1:50pm and check in is pretty slow.. I stay at hotels most of the year I […] would consider this a step up from a Motel...would I consider staying here again? Yes, if it's just for the night.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"minutes from FLL airport, had restaurant in hotel"
great place to stay as a "jumping off" point for travel as it advertised itself, enjoyed the in-hotel restaurant for good food with full menu, was minutes from the airport for an early AM flight and gas stations and fast food places. The room and hotel met all our needs for our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Beautifully kept gardens/pool that give a nice feel to this hotel. Rooms are good for one night lodging. Needs overall refurbishing of contents. Breakfast had good choices and very nice attendants.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location if you are flying or cruising"
The hotel is in a great location, close to airport and cruise port. Free shuttle to airport and on site restaurant make it a very convenient place to stay. The man that took us to the airport was extremely friendly and helpful! The rooms have some updating. New flat screens and granite counter top in bath. Nothing fancy but clean. Nice pool area. Walls […] were thin so you could hear neighbors but, thankfully, they went to bed early. Price was very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Driving into the parking lot, we expected the worst. But we were pleasantly surprised: The room was clean, the bed comfortable, there was fast free Internet, the TV was new, the bathroom had nice shampoo and plenty of towels, and parking was included in the price. It was just fine for what we wanted: a place to stay before catching our flight back to […] Boston in the morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"no review title"
I wound up staying there two nights. I prefer a ground floor room and discovered after the first night that I needed to ask for a ground floor. The beds were comfortable, the shower was good and hot, it wasn't noisy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loud AC but otherwise a great deal"
if you're a very sound sleeper and you're looking for a relatively inexpensive room, conveniently close to the airport & cruiseport, you cant beat this place. tidy room, helpful staff, etc... but there's no reason for air conditioners to be this loud anymore.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Free breakfast and airport shuttle"
We needed a place for just one night between flights and were looking for a clean, inexpensive place near the airport that had a free shuttle and breakfast. This fit the bill. Nothing more, nothing less. After arriving, we called the hotel to request shuttle pickup and were told by the manager that the driver was on lunch, so it would be at least 45 […] minutes before pickup. He said if we were willing to take a cab ($18), he would buy each of us (4 adults in our party) a drink at the bar. I think we got the short end of that straw as the drinks were rather weak, and not worth what we paid for our taxi. There must have been more to the shuttle story, as I was in the lobby a couple of hours later, and they were STILL asking people to take a taxi. We ordered sandwiches from the restaurant to enjoy by the pool. As there were no other restaurants nearby, we ordered pizza. The rooms were small, but clean. The beds were average. They served their purpose. In the morning, the shuttle driver was almost 15 minutes late, but when faced with rush-hour traffic, he took a "short-cut" through some neighborhoods, and got us to the airport on time.

"Great Value for Pre-Cruisers"

"Ok facilities, low class staff, very poor location"
We landed in ft lauderdale without reservations so we had to find a place after our plane landed. We called the Rodeway Inn based on price. Since we were staying two days in Lauderdale before our cruise I asked the person on the phone if they were near the good shopping centers since they were farther from the shore than other hotels on expedia. He […] told me they had a $5 shuttle service to the shopping centers. I found out, after we booked our room (of course) and were taken through the hood on the shuttle ride from the airport to the Rodeway Inn, that the $5 shuttle ride the guy told me was to a Winco shopping center. A trip to the shopping centers on the shore, the one tourists like me want to see, was $70!!!!! The guy obviously knew I wasn't asking about Winco when I called the Rodeway (how many tourists want to go to Winco on their vacation?!). He was purely dishonest to me on the phone. Also, I witnessed the manager at the front desk, who happened to be the guy who lied to me on the phone, being rude to other guests who were asking him simple questions and making small requests. He may be burned out on dealing with tourists but he needs to realize us tourists are why he has job. He is a bitter man. The restaurant at Rodeway is of poor quality. The service was slow and the place is very trashy. I highly recommend paying extra and staying elsewhere. The Rodeway was the low point of our cruise trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasantly surprised! Excellent customer service!"
We recently stayed with the Rodeway Inn & Suites, Ft. Lauderdale Airport and Cruise Port for one night prior to an mid morning flight. We arrived late in the evening following a plane delay and not looking forward to waiting out the hotel shuttle. If you've ever been through FLL, you know that this can be a huge headache as most hotels don't seem to […] really care about the shuttle service. We called when we stepped into the terminal and upon arriving at the shuttle pick up location the driver was waiting for us with the van door open. We overhead other tourists discussing how jealous they were as they had been waiting over 45 minutes for the shuttle. We boarded and were immediately transported to the hotel. Check-in was fast, professional and friendly. Our room was clean, quiet and safe with appropriate amenities. We woke up, enjoyed a delicious continental breakfast, and received what I can only describe as "VIP" treatment in terms of the shuttle service, customer service, and overall demeanor of the entire hotel staff. The shuttle driver quickly delivered us to the terminal, assisted with a smile, and told us to enjoy our vacation. We couldn't have asked for better service from the Rodeway Inn & Suites and recommend to anyone traveling through the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
customer service was very poor. Waited 3 hours for a clean room. front desk employees were unprofessional.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Checking in was very time consuming even though we had paid in advance. Tile floors in our room were very dirty and the air conditioner was so loud that I had to wear ear plugs to try to sleep. The food in the restaurant was good but the service getting seated and waited on was slow. I felt that there were not enough staff to check in, clerk at the […] gift shop, clean and serve food. People were in long slow lines to check in and to get food at the restaurant and I think it was poor management and a lack of staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect for Pre & Post Cruising!"
This hotel has thought of everything for the pre & post cruisers. Free shuttle to and from the hotel and the cruise port. Free breakfast. They sell wine in the lobby.

"Great PRICE-Now I know why!"
I was very excited about the deal that Expedia offered and how close in proximity the hotel was from the airport and expressways. However, the convenience was overshadowed by the filth of the floor in the room. I used to full size body towels to wet the floor and mop it as my socks quickly became dirty when I walked on the floor. When I addressed it […] with the hotel manager "Izzy" he told me I must have dragged in some dirt from outside. Really!? I mopped your floors while on vacation with your towels and I am the one who caused the filth. The facilites were decent and the photographer really accentuated the decor as it was much different than what we entered into. I arrived early as my Expedia representative told me that the room may not be ready but we should check with the hotel. The lady at the front desk was curt in her response stating, "Well 11am is checkout there is no way a room will be ready." A simple, that will not be possible would have been suffice. Overall, it was an average room for a great price but I still felt the value was not there for what we paid. I would have been LIVID had I paid full price for the rooms.

"served its purpose"
The whole experience was pretty disappointing: we had to wait a long time for the shuttle from airport, the 'hotel' really felt like an older motel, our room was on second floor but there was no elevator, the room furnishings and facilities were not in great shape, and the quality of breakfast items was so-so. Good things: The front desk staff were […] great, the bedding was updated and felt very clean, which is very important to us, and the location was convenient to the port and airport.

This was a good place for our last nights stay. Close to airport and convienant 10 minute drive to beach. Pool area nice and Reef Restaurant next door good for a little dinner and drink if you choose. Clean room. Good shower. Nice staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had to spend an additional night in FL. We decided to stay near the airport as we had a 9:45am flight. We booked through Expedia Mobile, quickly and easily, for a standard room with a king bed (my husband uses a CPAP and we need a king to avoid issues with the tubing). We arrived at the hotel around 8pm and after a wait in the chaotic lobby (looks […] like a truck stop) were given our room key. We were told to park on the side of the hotel as it is a fairly large place, but there were no spaces (they also offer park and fly/cruise packages so I am guessing this is where they park those cars). Ended up parked in front and walking back to our building/room. Got to the room to find 2 queens (tho I swear they were doubles). Back to the desk to be told they had no king rooms available. I showed them my confirmation for a king and was told there was nothing the could/would do and the room was non-refundable. I contacted Expedia, who contacted the hotel, and was told the same thing. We could take it or leave it, but they weren't refunding any of our money and they had no king rooms. I will not stay here again even though the room was clean and the location was convenient. The attitude of the people working there is enough to keep me away. (Expedia did end up giving us a $50 coupon good towards future travel for our trouble.) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
