    The pics do not match the real hotel. It was a old hotel with mismatched furniture. Nothing like the pictures

    The phone did not work. The smoke detector was detached from the wall and didn't seem to work. The doors have regular locks (no key card).

    Everyone was very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more.

    That we had to leave.

    Superb

    The place was clean and comfortable. Good value. Staff went out of their way to assist with whatever we needed. Enjoyed pool area and were only steps from a beautiful beach, restaurants shops and bars. The hotel and surrounding area felt safe and it was peaceful and quiet at night. For the price there really isn't anything to complain about. Were pleasantly surprised after reading some of the more negative reviews!

    It was close to the beach

    The room was not like the one advertised through the website; the hotel is old and in desperate need of update and safety repairs (electrical box hanging out of the wall in our room, switch for light in closet just a hanging string; air conditioner did not work properly; door latch security not adequate, etc); 3 hotels/motels total associated with The Martindale..only one staff at desk at another site to deal with all 3 locations; no hairdryer in room - after two calls to the front desk had to walk down to another location to get hairdryer..

    Superb

    Very friendly and helpful staff.

    I wish they had a hot tub next to the pool, but given the economical price, maybe that is too much to expect.

    Good

    Nice room for the money, not the Westin but much better then a Motel 6

    Bed was ok but not great.

  • 6.2
    Good

    The location to the beach, and dining was excellent. The outside of building is very cute and quaint. Nice areas to sit around.

    The noise, and rooms are too outdated

  • 7.4
    Very good

    This retro hotel provides a glimpse to the past and what it would have been like staying on the beach in Ft Lauderdale in the 1950's.

    The facility needs better cleaning. Even though it is old, no excuse for not being clean.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    We liked Ft. Lauderdale and enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the A1A "strip".The courtyard and pool area was quite nice, very pleasant to sit and have a drink, read or talk.

    We would have liked coffee in the room and some kind of light breakfast option. Also, the room was very cramped for space and a bit run down. We also would prefer sheets that stay on the bed!

    Fabulous

    my stay was pleasant and close to the beach.It was quiet and the staff was pleasant

    the toilet kept running and I had jiggle the handle after each use. The curtians need to be heavier to block out light.

    Very good

    great location close to restaurants and shopping,liked the art deco theme of the building and the grounds

    stayed in 2102 (two bedroom )upstairs,this suite needs renovation badly,we were also in 2101 downstairs,it was much better condition.If we only stayed in the upstairs we probably would not return.Renovate ,and you will have a unique place to stay.
