“as close to beach as you can get!!!”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We stayed here two nights and never wanted to leave! Very clean and at home feeling,there is a nice tiki bar right outside our room and someone played music every night at the bar. The beach is just steps from your room and is clean and clear. good snorkeling for shells. The boardwalk has all kinds of places to eat and get good drinks!!! Very good for couples

My husband & I stayed here recently for my 28th bday. We absolutely loved it. Very home-like feel, conveniently walk to the beach & board walk & the bar just outside our room was great as was the service. I would however expand on the hours of the bar. The only bad expereince that pretty much ruined our time was the beyond Obnoxious wife or relative of the owner. She needs to stay off property & not ruin it. Just thinking of her behavior, her attitude & words makes my blood boil to this ver day (& its been 2 months since we stayed here). Besides that heartless "lady" everything else was great!

Room Tip: First floor was great!

You are literally right on the beach! A nice little tiki bar open all day with good food. Grocery and convenience stores are not close by so if you don't want to buy soda and water from the bar then make sure you bring plenty with you (we did not have a vehicle with us). Broadwalk is right in front of hotel with some wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Our room had a nice kitchen with full sized appliances. Our room had an incredible view and was plenty spacious for 4 adults. I will definitely stay here again if I have the chance.

We stayed at the Riptide for just one night, prior to driving down to Key Largo last November. This place was a very pleasant surprise. The location is fantastic, the rooms are huge, and the staff was very friendly!

I wish that we could have stayed longer. As a matter of fact, we might plan another trip to Florida, and make this our primary destination!

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's a laid back, no frills kind of place but it had everything we needed. The room had a fully equipped mini kitchen which was brilliant as you can get tired of eating out when on the road. There was a table and chairs inside and veranda furniture outside where you could sip your drink and enjoy the views of the sea and the goings on on the broad walk. The tiki bar was mellow with music until 9pm and a chilled out crowd. It got quiet after that so it would suit families as well. From the door of the room to the ocean took about thirty seconds, heaven. The price was right too. We didn't eat at the bar but the food looked good. The staff were not overly friendly compared to our experience elsewhere in Florida.

Room Tip: If you want more privacy maybe ask for a room on the upstairs balcony further from the bar.

We stayed here 2 nights post-cruise so we could get at least a little beach time before leaving Florida. This is a small mom & pop "old Florida" type hotel, not modern and luxurious, but clean, affordable and you can't beat the location. Our room was spacious enough and had a little kitchenette with full-size fridge- very convenient. My husband & I would happily return and spend a week here - our parents, however, would probably check-in at the nearby Marriott (we were perfectly content here, but for them it was "roughing it").

We had an oceanfront room (#1) - literally, our window was right on the boardwalk, people walking by could watch us sleeping if we didn't close the blinds. The boardwalk and beach were just a few steps away from our room, we loved it! This hotel also has a courtyard with a tiki bar and live music. We didn't hang out there much because it was too cool & windy for the parents. I got the idea that on a typical Fri. or Sat. night, this would be party central, but since it was pretty chilly when we were there, everyone cleared out once the sun went down. So it probably worked out for the best - I don't think the noise would've bothered us much, but our parents definitely would've been griping.

Also have to mention Nick's Bar & Restaurant, which we came across on the Boardwalk. We stopped in one night for drinks and oysters - great margaritas! Then we went back the next day for lunch and dinner. The food and atmosphere were great! We fell in love with Hollywood and will definitely make it back to spend more time!

Room Tip: Rooms in the north building are furthest from the tiki bar area, so quieter. Also, the rooms in the...

Dear JPPMP,

Thank you very much for your feedback. We have plans for a renovation that will update our rooms with more features for our guests. We are also looking into heaters for our guests during the winter time when the winds can make for a chilly night. We hope to see you in the future!
