Universal Palms Hotel, Fort Lauderdale
Good3.0 / 5
Great location need some remodling
The air conditioning unit was very old and loud and made it difficult to sleep. Bathroom need remodeling. Bedroom chair was broken. Carpet needs cleaning. The train runs frequently with horns blowing at night. The mattress was not comfortable and makes a lot of noise when you move. However, Walls are very thin. Staff were great and very helpful. Very good location next to rt95 and other main rts. The swimmimg pool was clean as well as the lobby

Good3.0 / 5
Budget hotel, descent. There is a restaurant and bar in the hotel which is nice. Pool is nice. Don't get a room facing the train tracks because you won't be able to sleep. The train is very loud.

The stairwell smelt of urine and the housekeeper wouldn't give us a extra towel to bath the next morning because we used ours to wash our hair.
