We had reservations for the Red Carpet Inn in Ft.Lauderdale back in 2005 about 5 weeks after the Hurricane passed thru! The
property was a shambles and still crowded with Gulf Coast evacuees. We moved to the Sleep Inn and paid the price (Excessive) but enjoyed the accomodations!
The Red Carpet, refurbished, would be an affordable accomodation and in nice shape. I don't know anyone that has stayed there since 05. It did offer shuttle services at that time!
