Great Escape Inn, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea
One Night Stay
We were a late arrival so an envelope was left on the door of the office (in view of anyone) indicating what room to go to, and a key would be left on the desk. Room was adequate, every piece of furniture must of been chosen from a Goodwill store. Mattress was extremely comfortable, cable TV was good. Hotel is definitely old, but clean. Did not use the pool. Okay for a one night stay.

Painful stay
The beds are so hard it’s difficult to sleep on them. We had some very loud people visiting outside at a community table near the pool until 2am both nights we stayed there. It’s located on a busy, loud street. You can hear the road and also hear airplanes overhead too. Overall not relaxing. Staff was wonderful and it was very clean too. Would not stay here again. It would be more comfortable to sleep in my car.

Very Good8.0
Good things come in small packages
Very cute place. Overall complex was small but it all worked very well. Room was clean and smelled good. No musty odors. Comfortable bed. Pool area was more than adequate with nice lounges and towels that the hotel provided. My husband swam every day in the nicely heated pool. Guests and staff very friendly. We would definitely stay here again. And the price was right!

New Years
a block from supermarket, drug store, good breakfast place, 3 easy blocks to the main drag and happening on Commercial. Great location perfect to stock the frig and use the microwave and be at the happening. And just 1 block from the beach. And great fast wifi.
