"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"
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food at the restaurant. Transport from airport to hotel and hotel to cruiseport was seamless. Great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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

Everything was fine but the check in service slow.Genuine Hotels.com 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. For $5/pp they will take you to the Winn Dixie up the street for last minute shopping. It's clean and comfy with a fridge/freezer and microwave. The Reef restaurant is good and reasonably […] priced. This is our favorite hotel when we cruise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Proximity to Port Everglades was convenient."
Due to our restricted travel schedule, we didn't have much time to spend at the hotel. The room was adequate for hype limited time we were there.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel for pre or post cruise from Port Everglades. Free shuttle from airport and to the ship. The restaurant on site is very good. The manager is very attentive to all arriving and departing guests.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

"gets busier and more commercial every year"
Have been using this for years, but each year it gets busier...more people, more cars, longer lines, noisier, less satisfactory. charges for many services that used to be free. time to try the next door Red Carpet Inn, which offers same extras in a much quieter environment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent manager & staff"
They try hard to please guests. The grounds are beautiful, breakfast great, restaurant and bar area serve excellent food. This is our third stay and we will go again ahead of a cruise from the nearby port.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overstay prior to cruise and return."
Hotel served the purpose for our trip. Room was adequate and comfortable. Hotel could use some upgrading. Continental breakfast wasn't the best, however did suffice. The manager had shuttle service very organized and on timely schedules. Would stay again for future cruise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great cruise hotel..."
Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Great place to leave your car while traveling...Genuine Expedia guest review
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
"Improved and close to airport and cruise port"
We've stayed at the hotel a few years ago and were not sure about coming back but there noticeable improvements. It was evident money was spent on pool repairs, upkeep of rooms and staff were responsive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice hotel with shuttle to cruise ship"
We came in very late at night but go good service once we got to hotel. we booked this hotel because of the shuttle service to cruise line. They had good service to the ship, with large buses and we didn't have to wait all day to get to the ship.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hard to beat convenience"
Free shuttle to / from cruise ship to / from hotel and to / from airportGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I like the location of the hotel but the quality is at most a 2-star hotel. The shuttle airport pick-up took 30 minutes and I have to call three times to ask for shuttle services.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"front desk service is horrible"
I accidentally double booked a room and tried to cancel the second room but a guy at the front desk by the name of John was very rude and told me that I cannot cancel and was very obnoxious through the whole ordeal.....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Surrounded by highways and parking lots"
Not good! Took 40 minutes for shuttle to get to us at cruise port. Then hotel was in industral area surrounded by 2-8 lane highways, off ramp and 18 wheelers parked behind us--that was the view out of our "Delux room"( additional charge of $20 for this and early check in (noon).Had a restaurant, thank god, as nothing else nearby. I am sure there were […] other options with better facilities for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

airport- hotel- cruse- hotel or airport. Great help in the pocess.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good pre/post cruise motel"
We stayed here before and after our cruise. The airport shuttle picked us up about 10 minutes after we called and we were at the motel in another 10 minutes. The motel has a little gift shop were you can buy anything you have forgotten. They also sell beer and wine so you don't need to get a cab to go buy your wine to take aboard the cruise ship. The […] on site restaurant, The Reef, had great food and lots of football games on multiple tvs. The rooms are not fancy, but they are clean and the beds were comfortable. We just needed a place to stay before and after the cruise. They have the most organized cruise shuttle I have seen. Instead of signing up to leave at a certain time and then being in a shuttle van with others going to different cruise ships (which is what other places do), everyone comes to the lobby at the same time. You are then grouped by your cruise ship. Each shuttle carries passengers for only one cruise ship so they are able to go directly to your ship without having to stop at a number of other ships first. Last year it took us 1.5 hours to get to our ship because of all the stops. This year it took us less than 15 minutes. Pick up from our cruise was also very quick. The airport shuttle for our trip home took about 10 minutes. We will be staying here again when we take our next cruise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad for pre cruise"
While to hotel is older they make a great effort to maintain the grounds and keep the rooms clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Not the best, not the worst. Reminds me more of an older type hotel, 2 story. No elevators. .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worst Hotel ever"
The worst Hotel at which I have ever had the displeasure of staying. The second night I walked away even though I had already paid. You should demolish the place. Choice Hotels in general are bad, but this one takes the cake.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Worn out hotel. Should be destroyed. Over priced for no quality. Typical of Choice Hotel chain.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a quiet room and easy to get on I-95 from there. Nice room for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was a dive. Young people who actually live there were loitering in the halls and around the rooms. Standing outside drinking and smoking, had to walk between them to get to room. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to cruise port and airport"
The staff at this hotel worked hard to make everyone happy. Their suite was a beautiful room. They even filled the ice bucket and left it in the freezer.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close for shopping"
Good site it is close to the airport and good for shopping. Very friendly and honest people. They need to make an effort in cleaness. In other way everything is OK.Genuine Expedia guest review
breakfast is a little limitedGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice room, poor service"
I called week ahead to arrange early check-in even though I was led to believe it wouldn't be a problem it was in fact a real problem. The customer service was terrible except for one young man whose name I didn't get but he knows who he is. I probably would not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Caters to the Cruisers"
This small hotel really caters to the travelers going on cruises out of Port Everglades. The rooms are comfortable and clean. There are two floors to this hotel and no elevator. So kinda difficult to lug your bags up the stairs. We did have a pool side, first floor room. They have shuttles that pick you up at the airport coming in and going to the cruise […] port and pick you up after the cruise too. All for free. The attached sports bar had decent food, but slow service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
They never cleaned our room for the 5 days that we was there until we complain bout it. Our phone in the room never worked. The garbage they never moved it. I would never recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cruise port overnight stay"
Customer service with Nellie was great. The resturant next to the hotel has really good food. The only thing we found was that Sunday afternoon did not have the enough help. The poor waitress tried to do her best. Better team work would of been nice. The hotel is perfect for an overnight stay before or after a cruise or flight. They have a shuttle service […] that is excellent. Izzy is awesome. He keeps the people moving and jokes around too. Have stayed here many times and we will be back. Free breakfast too. Just enough to start your day. Ask for a complimentry drink coupon too. One for each night per guest. See you before our next cruise!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
