Plunge Beach Hotel - Lauderdale-by-the-Sea - Building
1
8.6 Excellent (761 reviews)
Overview Reviews
A SLICE OF UNEXPECTED IMAGINATION!Tucked along South Floridas fabled A1A in Lauderdale by the Sea, the 163 room Plunge Beach Hotel is a laid-back, low-key retreat for beach lovers in search of a chill, off-the-radar getaway. Catering to todays creative class, this oceanfront hideaway shuns corporate conformity in favor of a brilliantly offbeat approach to food, fun, music, technology and recreation, all in a world-class location that celebrates the timeless traditions of the Great American Beach Town. We offer spacious, beach inspired guest rooms, offer flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi; some add furnished balconies with water views and direct beach access.Pet friendly rooms available. There is a $75 non-refundable pet fee per room of stay. Max 2 dogs at 40 lb weight limit.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: The bed was comfy. The wi-fi and TV worked. The coffee was good.
Cons: Where to start? I have stayed in places in the Amazon that were more fun, soulful and sophisticated than this excuse of a "resort." The decor has been executed by people who seem to be copying a graphic style that became passe 15 years ago, think hand drawn on everything, everwhere. Nothing exists here for your comfort. There is one elevator where there should be three. The ice machines are refrigerators with unhygenic open bins of ice. Everyone helps themselves with their hands, very disgusting. At 6:55 am the valet parking guys show up and the loud music starts and the natural soothing sound of the ocean and swaying palms is obscured by thumping base. The poorly lit hallways with their clown carpeting and decoupaged magazine pics pasted into drawn frames on dark blue walls would be the perfect Lauderdale-By-The-Sea location for a Stephen King novel. Spooky is the word. Every corner has been cut at this place in the worst way. Plunge this toilet resort. Do yourself a favor, book someplace else.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Lived it's proximity to the beach and how walkable rose lots o restaurants and bars. The bar at the hotel was also great. Right on the beach with good food, friendly servers, and reasonable prices for the area.
Cons: Not much. It was just what we wanted.
6.0 Good
Pros: Room was bright and the bed comfortable.
Cons: They had a resort tax I did not know about. Since I was just using the hotel part I was disappointed. I don't like surprises.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Heated pool and friendly staff
Cons: No coffee in room
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Location near beach
Cons: No coffee maker in room. Very basic for the price. Overpriced. There’s nothing special about this hotel. It’s a boutique hotel with less services provided than a chain hotel.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Location,bed very comfortable, valet parking, bar was nice
Cons: No microwave, no ice machine they use a freezer for ice, 1 elevator, small mirror in room, loud air conditioning, no coffeemaker this is a few things. Need an upgrade or overhaul
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Love the proximity to restaurants... no need for a car.... wish the weather would have been better!!
Cons: Maybe revamp the food menu ... need luggage carts in Beach House building...
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Heated pool, bar, ocean view, music by the pool!
Cons: That the music stopped playing at 6 on a Saturday night.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Location, staff. 2nd king size rm was much nicer. Bed was comfy except sheets didn't fit properly
Cons: First rm had poor drainage in bathroom n no lid for toilet n no shelving for toiletries. Ice was prepackaged in hall fridge. Pool too small for size of facility
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beds were so comfortable. The staff at the beach were extremely helpful and polite. The rooms were big and bright.
Cons: It took a long time to get the rooms cleaned. And the walls are thin.
9.7 Excellent
Pros: Super comfortable best, appreciated the modern hip style in otherwise stodgy area. Great pool and beach. Friendly staff.
Cons: Would have liked coffee/tea in room, but cafe downstairs opens early.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: When entering our room, our view was none the less to be desired. It was a wall. Description of the room was ocean view. I went to front desk, expressed my dislike for the price we paid and we were moved to a room with no wall with no issues.
Cons: The room description "ocean view" should be looked at. We had to look out our window at an angle to see the ocean
The Sea Lord Hotel & Suites - Lauderdale-by-the-Sea - Building
2
8.9 Excellent (415 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at The Sea Lord Hotel & Suites in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea (East Fort Lauderdale), you'll be a 1-minute drive from Anglins Fishing Pier and 5 minutes from Coral Ridge Mall. Featured amenities include express check-out, multilingual staff, and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
7.1 Good
Pros: Beautiful beach with clean soft sand. Decent outdoor pool with reasonably warm water. Our room was rather Spartan and small as were the beds. Free WiFi worked well enough. Dorm sized fridge, coffee maker, microwave and a few dishes were included. Flatscreen TV. The place was very quiet despite some light renovations that were going on. We never had trouble finding free parking in their tiny lot which is way too small to cover high occupancy days. In that case the front desk lady told me they send you across the street to another property they own. On the 4th night we returned to our room which had a strong oder due to tub reglazing in the agacent room. The staff was very responsive and moved us to an ocean front room which was bigger and better in every way. Full size fridge in the kitchenette, a sofa/living area, larger bath, and a full walk out balcony. Ocean front room is highly recommended if you can justify the uptic in price. Short walking distance to shops and restaurants to the north, and about a 1.5 mile hike south gets you to the northern loop water taxi boarding point. The free breakfast was very basic. No hot food except for some toaster items. But for the price I can't complain.
Cons: The non-ocean front room was small. The A/C was either very weak or perhaps nonexistent. It wasn't a huge problem for us as the outdoor temperature was moderate to cool at night.

1.0 Poor
Pros: It was close to the beach
Cons: It was bug infested. There were termites and roaches in the bathroom. All the wood cabinets were dry rotted. My Family did not feel comfortable taking baths. There were what appeared to be bed bugs. Black tiny mites on sheets. Overall stay was Horrible.
7.0 Good
Pros: The location was great, room was fine right next to the pool. Short walk to the beach and shopping and restaurants.
Cons: the housekeeper never swept the floor... there was paper on the floor in the bathroom where a piece from the soap wrapping fell and was never picked up and sand on the floor. Other than that it was fine.
8.0 Excellent
Cons: No fan in bathroom. Nowhere to place items in shower.
4.0 Okay
Pros: This is a motel located on a busy street - pool is small, cushions are left out over night so if it rains, too bad, you've got wet cushions. the skimpy white towels barely covered my size 4 body and i wondered how the larger guests managed. While there were about 8 chaise lounges by the pool (overlooking the road) and a handful of tables and chairs there were only 2 umbrellas. So - if you want shade, grab it early.
Cons: there was a dirty face towel in our room (it said makeup on it and actually HAD makeup on it). the room was not terribly comfortable and the managers offered no information. Plus: Parking was easy and convenient and the location was fine.
9.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the staff and location
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great staff
10.0 Excellent
Pros: First point about this place is its great location! It is a short walk across the street and through a small park to a wide, beautiful, sandy beach. In another direction, it is a couple of blocks to Commercial Street where there are lots of good restaurants, bars and shops. This property is older and shows its age a bit, but it has been updated and is really clean and comfortable. We were in room 25 on the second floor, which is a one bedroom unit. There is a full, well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room and a very comfortable bed in the separate, spacious bedroom. The air conditioning works very well to keep the unit comfortable. Shower and towels were more than sufficient. The pool is clean and sparkling. It’s not large, but perfect for a refreshing dip. It was not warm when we first arrived, but the thermostat was turned up and the temperature became very comfortable. There are lots of chairs around the pool, and the office will provide beach towels. There are also chairs available at the office to take to the beach.
Cons: If there are any complaints, they are minor. Walls and windows are not insulated, so sound really carries. The others guests while we were there were very quiet after 10pm. The other minor complaint is that the really pretty lights around the pool at night seemed to shine right in our bedroom! That just meant we didn’t need a nightlight!

8.0 Excellent
Pros: I like the place. Good location, 5 to 10 minutes walk to the beach in Lauderdale by the Sea. The staff friendly, rooms are cozy and clean, it's got a pool and is reasonably priced. Not fancy but people return & winter here, I'm a repeat customer myself!
Cons: It could use some touch up painting on the exterior, it's not shabby just a few small patches. Small patch of lawn could use some help. Door locks can be tricky. None of this has ever been a real issue. I've stayed here 3 times and will come back.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Location was awesome! Management and staff were super friendly. Clean and comfortable! My back frequently aches when I wake up in a hotel, but not here. This place was perfect and we'll be back!
Cons: The faucets in the bathroom were hard to adjust to achieve the right temperature.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Customer service was nice
Cons: When we arrived there was no water due to a plumbing mishave an then again the 2nd day for awhile again. We also had a few ants in the bathroom.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Pool side very inviting. Two blocks to beach. Shopping center one block away with grocery store and a Dunkin. Short 7 min walk to square where everything happens... restaurants, bars, shops and mall area with chairs and friendly people. The owners are great.... very personable and will cater to all your needs. The price per night is also a good thing. Lauderdale by the Sea area can be somewhat pricy so you have to be smart. Sea Garden by the sea is a good place to start with attractive pricing. Oh, and check this out... Sea Garden by the Sea offers FREE light weight beach chairs and beach towels for your use. This was very nice of the owners to have on hand. Owner has all kinds of upgrades in store and they are happening now. This place will surely give competitors a run for their money over the next year. Overall, I can’t complain. We enjoyed our stay and could see ourselves coming back again in the future.
Cons: We had a suite and I think a separate comfy chair to compliment the sofa would be nice. Sofa is small and only good for one person to stretch out on long ways. A separate comfy chair would be a great add-on to the living room. Dinnerware is not microwaveable so you would have to get paper plates at dollar store... one block away. Don’t forget some paper towels too as the kitchen has no napkins or paper towels. I think I’d like to be one block closer to the ocean next time.... almost beach front, shorter walk and quieter. I will pay more but for the shorter stay of 5 days, I have no problem with this. Other then a few small things, Sea Garden by the Sea is inviting and for a short stay.... can’t go wrong.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Quiet place, close to the beach.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The folks who are running this place now are very very welcoming and accommodating. If you needed something, they got it for you! We walked to the beach and everywhere, close to everything! Will definitely be visiting them again

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Exceptional hosts/managers! A lot of regular guests who were very friendly. The room was clean and were exactly as pictured.
Cons: We stayed in an efficient room with a kitchen. Which was very nice, however, we would have liked to have a better selection of pots/pans. Also, a few more lounge chairs would have made it easier to lay out and enjoy the sun.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The owners where very friendly and welcoming
Cons: Intimate location
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: This motel was not what I expected at all. The room was to big for the tiny air conditioning unit in the window. It took 2 days to get the room cool enough to stand. There was no vending machine. There was no ice machine it was terrible. Plz read reviews before u book this hotel.

Pros: Location! 5 minute walk to the beach, grocery store, coffee (!) and town! Pool area is small but perfect for kids. Only 4/5 lounge chairs which could possibly be an issue but we were up early w kids so at 10am they were free! The rooms weren’t fancy but beds were clean and tv worked fine. One room had a small kitchen w toaster and fridge which was perfect. They provide beach towels and chairs which was great! Definitely worth what we paid. Can’t beat the location for the price!

Windjammer Resort And Beach Club - Lauderdale-by-the-Sea - Pool

9.1 Excellent (218 reviews)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice location right on the beach. Within walking distance to some restaurants and shops! Overall a very nice spot! Would stay there again if traveling to the area.
Cons: Our rooms were a little different in that they were on two floors and had an elevator to go between. This made us a little nervous at first but it was okay and easy to work. The fold out couch bed was easy to use but probably needs a mattress topper to be comfortable.
8.5 Excellent
Pros: Situated in the beach and few min walk to village centre
Cons: Small bedroom
6.3 Good
Pros: Location right on beach
Cons: Small bed. Accomodations neat and clean but a bit dated. Overpriced for the accomodations

Cons: There was nothing that I didn't like!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the location right by the beach and walking distance to several bars/restaurants/shopping!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I will definitely stay here again. Perfect location, view of beach from wherever you are on the property, quiet and extremely clean. I stayed in a 1 bedroom split level with an elevator, I liked the quirky layout, just my opinion. You could tell there are many repeat guests which speaks for itself. I personally enjoyed the south building pool area as you can sit in the sun facing the ocean or in the shade under the palm trees.
Cons: As a nonsmoker it was unfortunate that one of the designated smoking spots is right outside of this room by elevator , but the guests who used that area to smoke were also very polite and just following the rules. I would personally probably stay in a different room next time for this reason if available which is certainly no big deal. I enjoyed so much I might even still stay in this room again if only available option.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Just a very nice hotel to stay at. I will be returning

Pros: Overall, the place has a relaxed atmosphere. People were hanging out in the courtyard and by the pool all night, eating and drinking. Kid friendly. Lots of kids running around and splashing. Good location, near the beach and some good grocery stores. Free parking in front of the inn.
Cons: The room was tiny, so that there was very little space beyond the bed. No table. The room was really dark as one of the light bulbs was burned out. Our only source of light was through an open bathroom door. They played music all night through a loud speaker. I am usually don't mind noise, but this was too much. Besides the music wasn't particularly good. Swimming pool was small and uninteresting.

Pros: Location: You are one block from a very nice beach and two blocks from the main pier at Lauderdale by the Sea. Shops and very good eateries.

Pros: Free parking, free access to laundry room, walking distance to beach and bars & restaurants. There were beach chairs that we could borrow. Free beach/pool towels. The kids LOVED the pool. The manager Lou really made every effort to make our visit nice and pleasurable. He even got pumpkins for the kids to carve on Halloween and made sure they were lit in the evening.

7.0 Good
Pros: Property manager woman was extremely nice! The complex was extremely clean and the workers were all friendly.
Cons: First time in FLL but price seemed high for the age of the complex. While I understand the loyalty to repeat customers (not booking new customers until repeat customers get their dates first), it seems extreme! I could not book another visit until current customers say they won't be back at their routine time.. I fully understand being loyal to your customers but shouldn't customers also have loyalty to Sea Spray and give them advance plan info. Doesn't make newcomers feel too welcome

Featured amenities include express check-out, multilingual staff, and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
7.1 Good
Pros: Beautiful beach with clean soft sand. Decent outdoor pool with reasonably warm water. Our room was rather Spartan and small as were the beds. Free WiFi worked well enough. Dorm sized fridge, coffee maker, microwave and a few dishes were included. Flatscreen TV. The place was very quiet despite some light renovations that were going on. We never had trouble finding free parking in their tiny lot which is way too small to cover high occupancy days. In that case the front desk lady told me they send you across the street to another property they own. On the 4th night we returned to our room which had a strong oder due to tub reglazing in the agacent room. The staff was very responsive and moved us to an ocean front room which was bigger and better in every way. Full size fridge in the kitchenette, a sofa/living area, larger bath, and a full walk out balcony. Ocean front room is highly recommended if you can justify the uptic in price. Short walking distance to shops and restaurants to the north, and about a 1.5 mile hike south gets you to the northern loop water taxi boarding point. The free breakfast was very basic. No hot food except for some toaster items. But for the price I can't complain.
Cons: The non-ocean front room was small. The A/C was either very weak or perhaps nonexistent. It wasn't a huge problem for us as the outdoor temperature was moderate to cool at night.

8.0 Excellent
Cons: No fan in bathroom. Nowhere to place items in shower.
4.0 Okay
Pros: This is a motel located on a busy street - pool is small, cushions are left out over night so if it rains, too bad, you've got wet cushions. the skimpy white towels barely covered my size 4 body and i wondered how the larger guests managed. While there were about 8 chaise lounges by the pool (overlooking the road) and a handful of tables and chairs there were only 2 umbrellas. So - if you want shade, grab it early.
Cons: there was a dirty face towel in our room (it said makeup on it and actually HAD makeup on it). the room was not terribly comfortable and the managers offered no information. Plus: Parking was easy and convenient and the location was fine.

7.5 Good
Pros: Location! 5 minute walk to the beach, grocery store, coffee (!) and town! Pool area is small but perfect for kids. Only 4/5 lounge chairs which could possibly be an issue but we were up early w kids so at 10am they were free! The rooms weren’t fancy but beds were clean and tv worked fine. One room had a small kitchen w toaster and fridge which was perfect. They provide beach towels and chairs which was great! Definitely worth what we paid. Can’t beat the location for the price!
Cons: There was no hot water in the shower! We let it run for at least 10 mins (suggested but another guest) but only got Luke warm.
