Located on the beach, Ocean Sky Hotel is just 15-minutes from downtown Fort Lauderdale near many shopping boutiques and local restaurants. An oceanfront swimming pool and Jacuzzi will catch the kids’ attention, while free high-speed Internet may appease parents trying to do some last-minute family vacation planning. Comfy rooms and suites at Ocean Sky provide standard amenities, including coffee makers and microwaves. Suites also contain kitchens, dining and living areas, and a marble-floored guest bathroom. An indoor/outdoor restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch and a Tiki Bar sits near the pool. Don’t forget — the beach is right there! Water sport vendors at the beach rent a range of equipment from jet-skis to kayaks.

Small room, promised view at the beach but all we had was view of air conditioning fans off balcony, very noisy, all right side of hotel is on those fans. Stuff is friendly and helpful, pools are clean and not full of chlorine, beach is great, location is the best, walk distance from Mc.Donald's, grocery store, plaza with restaurants and coffee shops!
Staying here for 3 nights before a cruise. The good: It's better than Motel 8. It's location on the beach can't be beat. You can rent Jet Skis which is a blast. The room was clean. The staff friendly. The bad: The balconies all face outward on the side of the building so you don't get an ocean breeze and you look into the parking lot of the hotel next door. The pillows on our bed were hard. The sheets feel old and are rough with bumps, wierd. They feel like low quality and old. Kind of uncomfortable for sleeping. The bathroom, although clean, is very narrow and small. The restaurant food was subpar. I had the Chicken Fiesta Salad it came on a bed of tortilla chips that were rancid. Husband had Hummus and Falafel with pita that was also rancid. Probably won't come back. I have stayed a better places.
