“Nice little place”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

We ended up staying at this hotel as our flight was cancelled and this was where the airline put us up. I was happy with the front desk staff and happy with our rooms. They were spacious and very clean. The pool and hot tub area is very nice and that was where we spent a majority of our time. The restaurant there is also very good. Nice service and very reasonable prices for the portion sizes that you get. The only disappointing service we had was the shuttle service. There was 2 shuttles running every 30 min, but we waited almost 2 hours to get shuttled back to the airport and another full hour if not longer on the way back to the hotel. The next morning when we left to fly home we scheduled a shuttle almost 3 hours before our flight to be sure we would be there on time. If you stay here, you might want to think about getting a taxi to bring you to and from the airport so you don't miss your flight.

Thank you for your kind review of our hotel. We are very sorry to hear that your shuttle was so late. As you can see from previous ratings, that is not normal for us here at the Holiday Inn Hollywood. We strive for 100% guest satisfaction. Please allow us the opportunity to serve you and your family again.

Thank you,

This hotel is way overpriced. It is an older property. The elevators are extremely slow, which means long waits when the hotel is full with cruise guests. We bought the hotel and breakfast package. I would say the breakfast is inedible. Save your money. There is a mcdonalds and a Denny's within walking distance. And yes, I would recommend Denny's over the hotel's breakfast. The pol area is decent but no pool towels to be found.

We are saddened to hear that your stay with us was less than satisfactory for you. Our breakfast is normally rated one of the best in town, and our previous reviews can show that. I am sorry that you found it to be not to your liking.

Pool towels can be found at the front desk, simply ask one of our many friendly staff members, and we would have brought them to you at the pool while you were enjoying your stay with us.

Please allow us the chance to serve your family again the next time your travels bring you to our area.

Thank you,

Great pre-cruise stay! Staff is super friendly. We arrived early, and spent the day at the beautiful pool, while the Saturday cruisers were checking out and rooms were being prepared. Kristina at the front desk was very accommodating and located us when our room was ready!
The suite was small, but adequate. Beds were comfortable, shower hot and pressure good. A small issue was dealt with in minutes.
Kudos to the staff here, they appear to run seamlessly despite an obvious amount of pressure with checkins and out.
The complimentary shuttle was timely picking us up at the airport, even though the cruise shuttles were in full swing when we arrived. Although we didn't use the cruise shuttle it was clear that, Ops Manager Shawn, had that very well organized throughout the morning and early afternoon.
We would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I had just gotten off our honeymoon cruise and decided to stay in Fort Lauderdale / Hollywood Beach area instead of Miami before we headed home. We had our reservations changed through the Holidays Inns points reward club. We arrived at the hotel with no reservations to speak of. Needless to say the points club made a mistake on our reservations. The operations manager was extremely accommodating to us with the mix up that was not their mess in the first place. We received an up graded room even though they may not have been taking points customers that week. They are a curtious staff! We had a free drink next to the great heated pool after that! This hotel is in a great location! In between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Located just a few miles from the beach and ports to get on the cruise ships!

We stayed at this hotel for one night at the recommendation of AAA before a cruise. The hotel is tired and not worth the $275 price we paid to sleep there. The room was large, but much of the furniture tattered and chipped. The air conditioning unit did not work. We were first told to wait and see if it would cool down. It did not. They sent maintenance up and determined it was not working. A standby unit had to be installed. This was disruptive to us to say the least. They did finally get it working. When we checked out, we asked for some sort of discount for the problem we had had. The front desk clerk said they fixed the problem and that was enough. I would not recommend this hotel. It has a 4 star price but is really a 2 star place.

There is no free breakfast and a very small dining room. Choices for dining in the area are very limited.

Nice location near the highway and about 20 minutes from the cruise terminal and 15 minutes from the airport. Very clean and courteous staff I had the opportunity to ride the elevator with the Manager, early in the morning. When I questioned him he told me that he walks the entire Hotel floor by floor at least once a day to see if there is anything in the halls that shouldn't be there. I happened down a hallway off the main lobby as I was heading for the business office to use the printer. There was a glass case there that contained many awards that this location has won for their recent renovation and continued cleanliness. I would concur with this. One thing I should mention is that the shuttle serviced to or from the Airport is FREE however the shuttle service to the Cruise Terminal is not and you must purchase a ticket in the Hotel lobby as soon as you get there if you want to get to your ship early.

Checked-in almost 1 hour before the due time without any complication.
Lady at the front desk was extremely helpful, recommended the Boardwalk ( great place to relax and spend the whole day ).

Hotel has a very nice pool and a very nice restaurant.
