So I've stayed for years at Driftwood on the Ocean, down the road from this one. It was sold to make condos, so I had to look around online. Surprised to see negative comments for this place, as I was blown away by it- not just in comparison to Driftwood, which was pretty run-down, but also in comparison with much higher-priced establishments.
First of all- price was very reasonable.
Secondly- the location. It is roughly two blocks off the Hollywood Beach boardwalk, between the ocean and the Intercoastal. Motels right on the boardwalk tend to be quite noisy- this was quiet and restful, nestled between New York and Filmore.
Three- the room. Lovely, clean, fresh- a leather sofa, a kitchen with a full-sized fridge & a ceiling fan, a tall bar table with stools, a decent, CLEAN bathroom, lots of closet space, and a big flat-screen TV. The bed was very nice, perhaps on the firm size, and I completely disagree with others about the linens- mine were soft and luxurious.
Four- the grounds. They offer several small seating areas, one larger one with an attractive canopy, a pool, and ample, affordable parking.
My ONLY negative had to do with the windows. They had decent blinds, but even closed tight A LOT of light came in at night. Nothing that can't be fixed with a blackout shade, so here's hoping they'll do that for next year. I travel to Hollywood alone, and spend my days at the Gulfstream racetrack & Casino- this is very convenient to that, and close to many nice restaurants on the boardwalk (and good local bars on the Intercoastal/ A1A.)
