“Great find on the beach!”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We recently stayed here after a cruise for a day before flying home. We arrived 5 hours before check in and were pleasantly surprised as they let us store our luggage until our room was ready. The room was amazing! Very spacious...wall mounted flat screen tv's in LR and BR. Just a real gem to find. So happy we stayed here. Only criticism was no whiskey or bourbon at the tiki bar. If that's a problem...just go next door to the Marriott bar.

Didn't stay here, but stopped for a drink at the cute little tiki bar. Met a couple of locals and got some great tips on the area. Friendly patrons, good music, good service, and good drinks. Stop by and check them out!

Stayed here for one night...we were lucky to get in after a bad experience in another hotel further down the beach. This place is a gem. It is a small hotel from the 1940's like most of the "boutique" hotels along the Broadwalk. This one is very clean and updated as much as possible (we were told there are limits by the city to structural modifications to these older hotels). I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I would say rooms 1 and 4 are the best on the first floor. They are large, bright, and clean. The housekeeper (Sheri, I think) is wonderful and will help you with anything. Office staff was great and even let us park there for the day after we checked out and filled our cooler with ice when we finally left. Tiki bar in front is a nice touch and had reasonable prices...it was open from 1 to 10 when we were there. I suppose it could get a little noisy at night, but it was quiet the night we were there. You could pay twice as much to stay at the big chain hotel next door, but don't do it...stay here!! No pool, but literally steps from the sand and ocean. Second floor rooms may have a slightly better view, but there is no elevator so be aware of that.

Pleasantly surprised ! Very clean with splashes of color in the interior decorating bringing the jewel up to date. Right on the beach with the use of beach chairs available. Tiki bar in the middle of the complex overlooking the ocean and boardwalk. We would definitely stay here again! The only downside was the lighting in our unit was poor for reading.

This is more like an apartment rental than a hotel but it was great. Right on the beach, you could not get any closer without swimming. Right next to a big upscale hotel chain, they are happy to let you eat there. Walk down the boardwalk to the right (south), you can buy beach stuff, eat food, anything that you want. Out room was very nice with nearly full kitchen (plug in burners, fridge and freezer, microwave. I am not sure that they are all like that though.

Two warnings, it is not handicapped friendly, there are steep stairs to upstairs rooms. Also, the small office is not open all of the time, you can check in via the bar though.

I'll start with the good. The location is perfect, you can walk to the busier part of the beach where the attractions are but relax in the quieter part with a tiki bar. For a $1 trollie you can go to downtown Hollywood. The people at the front desk were very helpful. The lady that cleaned our room was very friendly and personable. The lady at the bar was very friendly and sociable. Everyone was really sweet. So why not 4 stars? The bed was uncomfortable. The wood floors need to be sanded and waxed- I should have taken pictures. When I was walking around, my feet were getting very dirty. It's a nice size and you can enjoy a nice view. One day I asked some questions and I was told "go ask the Marriot next door...." That wasn't very professional although the intentions were good. I mean hey - I'm staying with you, not the Marriot but to be fair, the person who told me to do that wasn't a regular at the front desk. We did HOWEVER get some great advice from the Walkabout staff in terms of where to go for necessities, nightlife, and entertainment so I think that more than makes up for it. OK, in short - service was great, location was delightful, I would probably go again - I just wish the mattresses were more comfortable and that the floors were sanded and waxed. I should probably add that we did forget some stuff in the hotel and they did mail it back to us... just to show some more on customer service.

Room Tip: When you ask for a view, don't ask for a side view. The front views are killer gorgeous!

Everything was perfect...kids had some freedom due to the layout of the rooms and beach I was able to keep my eye on them without being joined at the hip. Loved the tiki bar, broadwalk, beach is so clean. Heidi, Amy and Sherry make you feel right at home.
