We have stayed numerous places in Hollywood and this one offers the best experience overall. Our room looked exactly like the pictures and was very spacious. The nicest staff, so relaxed and happy. On the boardwalk. awesome views. Great little tike bar with local flair. Very quiet location on the northern end of the boardwalk. Walking distance to many resturants and shops.

We found that Hollywood has many modes of transporation. Check out the trolley, water taxi, cab service, bikes and more. Schedules may vary by season and durring special events.

Room Tip: I prefer the upper floor for the best view and privacy.

The Walkabout hotel is truely a jem! It's right on the beach and the rooms are wonderful. My fiance and I stay there every New Years Eve and the staff is amazing. Don't waste your money on the Hilton or Marriott when you can stay at a classic like this place.

From the moment we arrived, we were treated like old friends. We felt as if the staff had been waiting for us. We were directed to our room immediately by Sherry & were told to let her know if we needed anything. We stayed in Room 8, the tower suite. Unbelievable view of the Atlantic Ocean & Hollywood Beach. Our apartment was extremely clean and decorated as if it was in a magazine; an abundance of extra pillows and towels. Perfect location on the Broadwalk - tiki bar downstairs in the courtyard (never a problem with noise BTW), restaurants within walking distance. I especially enjoyed being at the northern, quieter end of the Broadwalk as opposed to the busier, noisier area.

I really cannot think of any need for improvement, I just hope this place stays around for many years with its old school, kitschy charm, it's one of a kind!

Room Tip: Only 8 rooms, none of them bad.

The Walkabout is a little pink building just north of the Marriott and is just FABULOUS! The rooms are clean, beautiful - white tile, white linens, etc.. Comes with a full kitchen so you can cook and stay in..

The bar is great - wonderful bartenders, fabulous locals.

Gina, the manager, is a doll and makes you feel welcomed and comfortable.

I TOTALLY recommend it!

Just spent two weeks with friends at the Walk About celebrating my retirement! I couldn't have had more fun any where else!! The staff was fabulous and made sure we had everything we needed--and with 4 women that was quite a feat! The locals that frequent the Tiki Bar were just great folks. One couple even ordered pizza for everyone on our last night there!! You are within walking distance of just about anything you need. (Try GG's just down the street on the waterway).The live music adds something special as well. The beds are super comfortable and the linens are a nice quality.
If you love the beach and a relaxed atmosphere you absolutely must visit The Walk About!

This is the third time we visit WalkAbout Beach Resort. The service we receive from the staff is always outstanding. They make us feel welcome every time and makes sure the room we like is always available. They are very professional, caring and very pleasant to talk to. Our room is always super clean and the bed is so comfortable. The location of the Resort is great. The beach is beautiful. All the bartenders at the Tiki bar are very nice too. We feel there is" no place" like this around town and we will continue to come and recommend friends. We love WalkAbout Beach Resort.
