On the way home from Mexico my family and I missed our connecting flight. After being told that most of Ft. Lauderdale was booked up for the weekend, we got ahold of Kim at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Fort Lauderdale Airport South. She booked us in the last room available that night and included a generous discount. She directed us to where we would be picked up by the shuttle and we were quickly transported to the hotel. Once we arrived, Kim went above and beyond any and all expectations... Read more

If looking for a place to stay before and after a cruise and leaving your vehicle, this is the place to stay. The staff was very helpful in answering questions. We asked about a place to go for dinner and had the option of being shuttled to a restaurant or walking to a few in the area. After a long day on the road, being shuttled to a restaurant was so easy. The breakfast available in the morning was very good as well. We had to pay a small fee to be shuttled to the port but pick up from the air... Read more

Due to a flight delay, our family arrived at the Holiday Inn Express near midnight. We called for a hotel shuttle and they sent a driver immediately. Upon arrival we were promptly checked into our room and given a brief overview of breakfast info. The room was super clean (I'm picky - mom of three!) and linens for the fold-out sofa were fresh as well. The morning staff was equally pleasant and the breakfast area very clean and fresh. Excellent value, very clean and customer service is above and ... Read more

I visited this hotel with my husband. We wanted a hotel close to the cruise terminal that offered transport. The hotel appeared to be fairly new and was very clean. The front staff were very efficient and pleasant. Breakfast was a bit basic with only a limited choice of hot food. The location wasn't as central as we normally book. We used a taxi to go shopping and it was further from 17th street than we realised. This cost approximately USD 40 round trip. There was no evening restaurant a... Read more

Excellent choice for an airport hotel. Seems to be fairly new, so rooms are nice. What made this especially good for us was the helpfulness of the staff on check in. We had just returned from Cuba and wanted a good greasy cheeseburger. Their recommendation (Le Tub on the Intercoastal) really fit the bill. The next morning the staff was equally friendly and accommodating, especially the shuttle driver to the airport. The breakfast was good, better than most. This will definitely be our first ...

I missed my connecting flight and called the hotel up to see if they had any availability. The lady on the phone was really nice. She set up the reservation and sent the free shuttle to pick me up in less than 15 minutes. The receptionist named Katiana was amazing. She honored our late check out request with no problem. The room was very clean. I had a good night sleep and my sister enjoyed the free breakfast. The shuttle even drove us back to the airport before our reserved time.

We stayed here because it was so close to the airport. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. She even upgraded our room (for no charge) to a suite. I broke my leg so we had requested a roll-away. Instead of having to sleep on a roll-away, she gave us a nicer room! The transportation to the airport was great as well. The driver was very kind. Nice to stay at places like this, with good people!

We chose this hotel since we landed at FLL airport late in the evening, and wanted to save money by not staying in downtown Miami the first night. The hotel room we got was very spacious, clean, and the bed was very comfortable! Can definitely recommend this hotel. Breakfast was great too, more choice than I expected - and included in the cost!

We stayed here one night after returning from a cruise. We selected this location due to its proximity to the airport. The staff was very friendly and beds were comfy. Only problem is the hotel sits on a very busy road and the walls seem to be very thin as noise was definitely an issue. If you are sound sensitive you may want to select another location.

Kim at the desk was super helpful, efficient and cheery, the guys that drove us were also great!! Im very sorry i dont remember their names :( the beds were comfortable. It was very clean.

Great place and location. Outdoor Swimming pool on the 4th floor was very nice. But the best of all was the help that Caitlin (kaitlin?) Gave us when we arrived at the airport without one of our wallets. A call to the front desk quickly confirmed that it was left in the room. She had a driver (jamey?) Bring it to us at the airport. Can't give enough praise for the great customer service.

Excellent Hotel with genuine friendly staff. From the time Jaime met us at the airport to check in with ktelynn / Hermame and Kim, we were welcomed and made to fell at home, even if it was for just 1 night. The premise is very clean, and the beds were comfortable and linen were fresh. Totally recommend this location if you are in Dania.

We arrived off of Delta, and called Holiday Inn for a shuttle. Jaime R came to pick us up. He was very informative since we were expecting another person flying from California to also be shuttled to the hotel, but from southwest instead of delta so we asked what we should know. He knew what he was talking about and was very kind. Thank you for your help Jaime! Tags: shuttle driver Jaime R , front desk , Hermanie / Kim

Multiple flights from FLL to Newark were cancelled on July 25 and 26, 2016. This resulted in the hotel going from having lots of rooms free to being overbooked in a very short amount of time. There was a line of people waiting to check-in, the phone was ringing non-stop and there was only one person working the front desk - Hermanie.

The Holiday Inn express near the Fort Lauderdale airport is clean, nice rooms, reasonably priced. Conveniently located near the airport with free shuttle. The shuttle can also take you to their sister hotel, the Crowne Plaza north of the airport. The hotel does not have a gym but it does have an outdoor pool on the 5th floor and it serves a decent breakfast

I arrived hours early and asked for an early check-in. The staff were really kind, trying to accommodate me as much as possible. The ground floor was very pristine and clean. When I got to my room, I was pretty impressed how nice the whole decor was, the place had a clean feel to it. I wanted more shampoo and conditioner and the cleaning staff delivered it right away - so efficient. There is also an airport shuttle, which makes getting to the airport super convenient.

Hotel is secured in that you must use your room key to use the elevator from the parking garage. Room was very clean and comfortable. Passed my ocd bug inspection. Name brand toiletries. Pool was clean and warm. We left before breakfast hours started, so I cannot speak for it. Will definitely stay here again if in the area.

The Holiday Inn Express (205 W. federal, Dania Beach) is a good stop before or after a cruise and offers a free shuttle to and from the airport; they have a contract with a local service that does port shuttles for about $8.00 a person (our cab from the port was $13.00 without the tip).

After missing our flight, we ended up at the Holiday Inn. The pluses are that the price is reasonable, the location is close to the hotel, free airport pickup/drop off and free breakfast.

This is a convenient location if you are flying in or out of Fort Lauderdale airport. My room was clean, smelled fresh and the bed was comfortable. I had a large shower with glass doors in the bathroom . The towels were plush and soft. They have a free breakfast but I had to leave early to catch a flight and did not get to utilize that service. I would stay here again when in the area.
