This is a smaller hotel with a great beach location that has excellent accommodations and wonderful, friendly staff. We have returned many times for these reasons.

We loved our stay at the Sea Lord in Lauderdale by the Sea. First off the entire staff gets a hats off for going the extra mile and for their friendliness. The grounds were very pleasing to us and gave us a Hawaii vibe. Great to just come out of your room and step out the beautiful beach. Beach was great and pool was fine. We were mostly the only ones in the pool when we decided to us it. Greatest location to take a walk into town or to walk in the water down to the pier or the other way to a nice tiki bar in front of the Ocean Sky. We will hopefully be back soon at the Sea Lord again. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks to all especially Tatiana

This place was absolutely perfect for my fiancé and I for a long weekend in Fort Lauderdale! The place was extremely clean, convenient and had more to offer than the surrounding hotels/condos etc. The pool area is beautiful and beach access as well as the service by the beach from the hotel employees was excellent. Would definitely stay again!!

Sea Lord is a great place to stay for the price. The rooms aren't freshly updated but they have been updated recently and are very clean and sufficient for the price and the views from the balcony rooms are perfect! The property is well maintained and the staff is fantastic! Special thank you to Loraine, Tatiana, Dominika, and all the rest whos names I did not get. The food at the restaurant on site is great and fairly priced. You have to pay for beach chairs and umbrellas which I feel should be included but given the times we are in it's acceptable I guess. It's a fair price and they set up everything for you on the beach. The mattresses in the rooms might need an update but they aren't bad. I have back issues and slept ok. Everything else was great and the location is perfect, very centrally located to Ft. Lauderdale and Pompano areas. Also very quiet area, at least during my week long stay over a holiday weekend. Overall I would give them an A. Considering the range of places to stay in the area and the prices for higher end properties with amenities you really can't go wrong staying here. Thanks Sea Lord I will return soon!
