The hotel

Leisure and lazy days are both on offer at Ocean Sky Resort — perched in a prime spot along the white sands of Fort Lauderdale. Enjoy water sports as well as oceanfront mini-golf then relax watching the sun set from the oceanfront pool and Tiki Bar.

If you fancy a break from the sand, sea and water sports, the downtown district’s shopping, dining and entertainment are just a quick drive away.

Came to stay for the holiday weekend and no where is it disclosed you must pay 20$ a day for parking even if you have a room here, my guest also had to pay for parking and was advised by the valet to park at McDonalds. They were extremely rude, better service at a cheap days inn. Do not recommend.

Rooms smell musty, housekeeping is horrible, not to mention the hotel has a onsite rental company from scooters to beach chairs. Rental company dictates where you can put the complimentary lounge chairs on patio of hotel, so you have to rent from them! I’m paying the hotel, but hotel caters to rental company. Bad business!!!

Pros - Location, the place is right on the beach. You can find restaurants, drugstores, markets, pubs, at walking distance. - Social distancing and use of mask correctly enforced Cons - Elevators failed daily, sometimes we had to wait in the lobby for an hour to be able to get to our room - Even though we knew in advance that there was a charge… Read more
Pros - Location, the place is right on the beach. You can find restaurants, drugstores, markets, pubs, at walking distance. - Social distancing and use of mask correctly enforced Cons - Elevators failed daily, sometimes we had to wait in the lobby for an hour to be able to get to our room - Even though we knew in advance that there was a charge of $20 per day for parking, we thought that for this price it would be something at least covered and secured. No, it was basically in the street with no security to guard the car. And to add it up, they charged tax over the $20!! - Valet will cost you $20 extras plus all the tips for the guys. Definitely a NO. - Room cleaning times were bad, the ladies cleaned very late in the afternoon, and even one day they didn't show up at all. - Very small rooms - Very old rooms, painting falling down, rust on all door and hinges, closet doors falling apart. - The balcony door stuck, and was almost impossible to close. - At the beach and the pool deck, almost everything has an extra price. Only the simple chairs can be used. - There are only 2 washing machines for the entire hotel, one took our money and didn't start, and we had to search for help which took time. Two driers that didn't heat at all, we had to take the wet clothes to a nearby laundromat to finish the job. All in all, this is a 2 star hotel, maybe 3 star at the most with a very generous review.

Went for our Anniversary and we planned on staying for 5 days. It was the second night that we woke up with big welped up bumps on our bodies. We started to examine the room and found evidence of bed bugs! We lifted off sheets to bed and found dried blood all over the side and the skeleton of a dead bedbug.

Went for our Anniversary and we planned on staying for 5 days. It was the second night that we woke up with big welped up bumps on our bodies. We started to examine the room and found evidence of bed bugs! We lifted off sheets to bed and found dried blood all over the side and the skeleton of a dead bedbug. We went down to front desk immediately where the guy working was extremely rude and insensitive about our situation! I showed him the pictures and my bites! They only refunded us for the time we were not going to be staying there and not for the past 2 nights that we were sleeping with the nasty bugs. He claimed the mattresses were brand new and that there is no way it was bedbugs! I do not recommend anyone ever stay here! Disgusting and disappointed in this hotel and staff! Read less

This hotel itself was ok, but the location is awesome right on the beach. The rooms were damp and dated but clean, and the bed was comfy.

This hotel itself was ok, but the location is awesome right on the beach. The rooms were damp and dated but clean, and the bed was comfy. The pool was on the small side and Saturdays are jam packed, the beach is packed as well, hard to find a place to sit. The bar staff was very nice and accommodating, room cleaning was slow and they forgot to come one day and getting fresh pool towels was like pulling teeth. Gross to be forced to use the same pool/beach towels multiple days. Don't think I will come back to this hotel, will look for another one on the beach. Read less
