"So great for the money"
The hotel was great in every aspect. They were very kind with me, the room was clean and nice. I looked like it was refurbished in the last years. I love the neighborhood, publix is 1 block from the hotel and the beach is 2 blocks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A Great Place to Relax"
The Great Escape Inn is a delightful small hotel that is perfect for getting away from it all. All rooms surround the pool and patio area and the beautiful beach is just one block away. Our room was stylish, clean, and immaculately maintained.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very clean. The people were very nice and it was just a short walk to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

IT WAS A VERY NICE PLACE TO STAY CLOSE TO STORES AND BEACH. WE WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN THE SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Away from the crowds, but not the fun!"
Driving up was a bit of a shock to see as the neighborhood does not really have a vacation/resort feel to it in the area of the hotel. However, the room was very comfortable, well appointed, and clean and we enjoyed our stay very much. It is close to several great places to eat and shop or just wandering on the beach. Great Escape Inn was a wonderful […] place to start our Florida holiday. My only suggestion - some complimentary chocolate from Jan's :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel for any visit"

Loved it! Great location and very clean. Excellent staff! My daughters and I had a great time! Will be back very soon!Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Jewel! Don't Pass This Hotel Up!"
My husband Dana and I stayed 5 nights recently at the Great Escape Inn. Let me tell you that from the moment we stepped foot onto the property we were greeted and treated like we were family as well. Cindy the owner and her son Mark were so accommodating and friendly. Our room anwas VERY clean and the room was updated, bright and delightful. We were […] extremely pleased that it also had a full kitchen with a eat-in table area. The bathroom was a great size and clean towels as were provided daily as well as shampoo and lotion. We had a king size bed which very comfortable and a new flat screen tv. We utilized the kitchen to its fullest! We were offered beach chairs, beach towels and a umbrella at NO additional charge as well as a basket of sunblock for our use. Now you would NEVER get this treatment at a chain hotel!! The beach was around the corner and and extremely clean with families all about. The pool was cleaned daily as well as the chairs, tables, etc. There is a washer/dryer on the premises which are a $1.50 for a wash or dry and Cindy even puts a bottle of laundry detergent out as well for hotel guests to use. There is also a gas b-b-q grill. I have to give a shout out to Robin who took care of cleaning our rooms while we were there. She was wonderful and took the time to talk with us whenever she saw us. So with all this said I would RUN as fast as you can and book a room with Great Escape Inn. The secret is out and this will be one of the top hotels shortly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close access to the beach"
The rooms were very clean and the staff were professional.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lauderdale By The Sea on a budget"
Great location for the great price. We would have preferred to be right on the water, but couldn't afford it. So, we chose Great Escape. 1 block from the ocean, quaint, clean, close to downtown-but far enough away from downtown. The service was great, I asked for 3 things that were brought to my room, and he would not accept a tip! Great Escape provides […] chairs for the beach, beach towels, and even sunscreen. We would go again, and stay here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean hotel"
This hotel was one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. We had a wedding to attend and only stayed 1 night. We will be back to stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice little apartment-type room. Adorable! Just close enough to the beach and everything else. Would definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great locally owned motel"
This motel has excellent service and management. They're bend over backwards helpful. The location is super, a 3 min. walk to the beach and about 5 to restaurants and the big grocery store. Ample parking immediately in front of the property for guests too.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent place for a nice time."
This is one of the nicest places I have stayed in a long time. The rooms are decorated very nicely. Excellent location to the beach. There is a court yard outside the lower rooms and we met and had drinks with other guests. Met some wonderful people from Canada. Really felt at home. Pool is very nice. This is not a chain hotel which made it even nicer. […] I will go back to this hotel every time I visit Lauderdale area. The beach is not crowded at all. Close to stores and the night life in the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great low cost hotel close to the beach!"
We spent an extra day in Ft. Lauderdale after a cruise and booked a room here for a night. The best part was that we called in the morning to see if we could drop our bags in the hotel, since check in wasn't until 3PM ...they said sure, but would try to have a room ready for us. They let us check in over 4 hours early with no extra cost or hassle. Everything […] else was great also ....nice clean room close to the beach, friendly staff, extra towels, low cost, good internet connection, etc. Everything perfect!

Exceptionally clean and well maintained older hotel. We arrived late and parking was somewhat problematic, but we were otherwise very satisfied with our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy and relaxing."

"ALL AROUND GREAT!"
Very friendly office staff, charming room, quick walk to the beach. Delightful stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staff was extremely accommodating"
It was a pleasant surprise how accommodating they were. We had a very late arrival, so they left our room open with our key and sign-in sheet on the desk in our room. We only stayed one night, extending a business trip to Miami one day to enjoy the beach, so they let us extend out check-out to 1:00 pm so we could go to the beach in the morning and return […] to shower before checking out. We then had a poolside lunch before leaving. It was very clean and I would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, excellent manager on site. Older motel that has been totally renovated to high standards. Also, a nice kitchen. Pool not heated ( but most motels don't heat their pools)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Hotel for us"
The hotel was very clean and nicely decorated rooms, beds were comfortable and bathrooms nicely cleaned. Locations was good for beach area and close to dining and shops. Enjoyed the stay better than a hotel we stayed at the year before that looked directly out to the beach. Parking at the hotel was a little crowded but we had no problem. Staff was very […] friendly. We will book there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very enjoyable. The hotel and surrounding area was very quiet and I felt safe. All that i needed to enjoy my stay was provided.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I found Great Escape Inn after searching and searching. It was so worth it! Great location, beach around the corner, restaurants and shops 2 blocks away. Nice pool, palm trees and fountain in courtyard. Rooms very clean and newly renovated. We had a small apartment. King bed and small, fully equipped kitchen. Staff was great, anything we asked for we […] got. Rooms close to road have some traffic noise. Great stay for the money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent vacation hotel!!!"
Excellent location, wonderful helpful owners, extremely CLEAN! We would highly recommend and would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to public beach."
This is a small, but charming hotel. Located two blocks from the ocean, very nice. They have an inviting patio set up by the small outdoor pool. The Staff was very nice, we arrived late on a holiday evening and they stayed open until we arrived. Thank you. We hope to have the opportunity to stay at this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The best vacation ever!!! Excellent place to stay--makes you feel like family and the care and consideration is beyond compare!! Will book the same place next time we're in the area (although when word about this little gem gets out there might be a waiting list!!!) LOVED IT!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extremely clean room and helpful staff"
We were there very briefly after seeing our granddaughter off at the airport. We didn't arrive until after dark, and had to leave early the next morning, so I really can't comment on the surroundings. The room was delightful, however, and probably one of the cleanest we've ever stayed in. The woman in the office was very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Inn if on a Budget"
My sister and I went to Ft. Lauderdale-by-the-Sea to visit family. We were on a tight budget and wanted to be within walking distance. This place was perfect. Completely remodeled. We stayed in the King Motel room. Clean and the bed was comfortable. I don't need much so I was happy. Free WiFi was good. Publix is right across the street and the beach […] is a 5 min walk from the motel. Commercial pier is about a 10 min walk with all the shops and restaurants. This is not a posh hotel, it is a family run Inn. Just like I like. Next time I will upgrade to the efficiency room so I can have a kitchen, too. Thanks, Mark, for letting us have a late checkout.

"Great Place close to the beach for a great price"
Great Mom and Pop hotel one block from Lauderdale by the Sea Beach. Newly renovated, nice decor, pool small but nice. Staff was very accommodating. The room we had booked did not have a kitchen but had a refrigerator and they brought us a coffee maker upon request. Not a lot of frills but nice and clean, great value for the money. Would stay there […] again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My sister and I stayed here one night before our cruise. I did alot of research on rooms in the Lauderdale by the Sea area and I was quite impressed with the reviews that were posted for this Inn. I'm very familiar with this area and the location of this hotel was fantastic. It was very close to the shops, restuarants, bars, and ocean. The rooms were […] immaculate, the bathroom was spotless and the property very, very clean. I would stay here without a doubt in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean and Comfortable"
Very happy with our stay. The rooms looked like they had been upgraded and very clean. Easy access to everything. If I had to nit pick, I'd say the pool needed skimming otherwise, I'd stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It does what it says on the tin."
A very clean and relaxed hotel. The rooms were a bit ancient but extremely clean. All of the staff were attentive and conscious of our every need. The hotel is on a busy road but there was little noise in the room. The hotel is about 8 mins walk to a few extremely useful bars and 2 mins from a Publix.In all good value for money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very nice hotel 5 min walk from the beach"
I give this hotel a high rating because compared with other hotels in the same range this is, by far, the best we have stayed at. I would definetly check availabilty at this hotel first if I come back to Ft Lauderdale. Very kind management. Clean rooms (great house keeping). Clean pool. Good WiFi. Only a couple of minutes walk from the beach. Stayed […] here with my wife and two daughters (10&12). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rimelig hotell med god service, rent og vedlikeholdt. Bassenget var bra og passe stort, fikk egne basseng håndklær. Vaskemaskin og tørketrommelen for alle. Gåavstand til strand og restauranter. Anbefales!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rent och prisvärt."
Great Escape Inn är ett litet men rent och snyggt motell. Det verkar nyligen vara renoverat och har väldigt sköna sängar. Vi sov en natt, två vuxna och två barn, i ett rum med två queen sängar och trivdes bra. Det fanns till och med ett litet kök med framförallt ett stort kylskåp. Poolen hann vi aldrig använda men den såg ren ut den med. Läget är utmärkt, […] bara 5min promenad till stranden eller lika långt till en stor matvaruaffär där du kan bunkra upp med frukostgrejor eller vad du än behöver. Jag kan varmt rekommendera det här motellet och kan mycket väl tänka mig att bo här igen men då gärna en längre tid. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rent och fräscht med bra läge"
