Good hotel to stay. 3 line of the beach. Recommend
Noise from the street not heard. 3 line of the beach. There is no boardwalk on the beach thus it's a quiet piece of the beach. So, hotel is conveniently located. 20 min to FLL. Room is roomy for this price. No problems with staff or amenities. Recommend.

Perfect Anniversary
The reviews I have read about Away Inn are accurate. Ifound my new family. The owner?/supervisor was the real reason she treated us like family even made us Thanksgiving dinner for everyone staying there. Delicious it was. Plus it was a truly international experience so many guests were from other parts of the world & never experienced Thanksgiving. Our room was very large separate kitchen with all the utencils& pans you need,bedroom,living room good size & ceiling fans in both also air conditioning worked well, & the shower worked very well, good hot water which was very nice. The bed is a little hard but we got used to it. Very clean everywhere. Heated pool wonderful, a little library with a table & chairs, laundramat,toys for the kids to play with by the pool even a little kitchen. Also chairs,coolers,fishing rods for the beach plus beach towels & umbrellas. The beach,restaurants & grocery store were less than a 5 min. walk,we hardly used the car.I really enjoyed staying in the safe town of Lauderdale by the Sea, it was small & quaint with very nice people living there. Thank you Away Inn it was so wonderful staying with you for our 30th wedding anniversary & Thanksgiving. I wish I could come every year. One last thing great value for your money.

Great Location
Typical of the Inns in the Lauderdale by the Sea area. Not 5-Star, but nothing wrong either. Older place that has been updated to modern standards. Great Pool.

I truly ENJOYED staying at Away Inn - my room CLEAN and well equipped with everything I needed including dishes (WOW). I would DEFINITELY stay here again if the opportunity presents itself. The location was perfect as well very quiet and safe. In case that wasn't enough there is so much to see and do on Commercial Blvd especially the scenery at night!!!
