We were looking for somewhere quiet and relaxed to stay, really close to the beach. Walkabout is exactly that. Comfortable, cosy suite with all the facilities we needed. The beach, which is kept spotless, is literally steps away, and it's right on the boulevard. Restaurants and shops right at your doorstep, but no nightly noise and bustle. Very friendly and... More

We arrived after staying in PCB for a few days. We liked the quiet, retro feel.Our kids could walk safely to get ice cream and we could see them on the beach from our room. The kitchen could use a little updating, but the decor and linens were great. Clean, comfortable and the staff very helpful. Good drinks at the... More

My husband and I first stayed here 2 years ago when he returned home safely from Afghanistan (thank god). To celebrate he wanted to stay on Hollywood Beach where he had some of his best memories in youth. We stayed the first night at the Marriott and happened upon someone staying at the Walkabout on the boardwalk who was saying... More

While the hotel is ocean front room 3 does not give you a ocean view unless you are standing in tub or craming your neck to right corner of front window through the tiki bar, other wise u are looking at stairs or street alley. Rooms are clean, staff was nice, tiki bar was dog friendly probably why locals like... More

With a friendly staff and cozy hotel, it felt like a private resort right in all the fun of Hollywood Beach. The tiki bar at the hotel has a great view of the ocean and the boardwalk. Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. The kitchen had refrigerator and area for simple food prep that we used for snacking. With the... More

We spent one night here in April before a cruise and want to come back for a longer vacation. We arrived after 7pm and checked in at the Tiki Hut bar...where we had drinks later (much cheaper than at the Marriott bar next door). Our room was on the 2nd floor (there is no elevator) with a view of the... More

We didn't stay at this hotel but stopped at the Tiki bar several days in a row while visiting. We found this Tiki bar was much cheaper than the one next door and the bartenders were very friendly. It seemed a lot of locals came to the bar but we always felt welcome and found everyone friendly.

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.

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... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The WalkAbout Beach Resort is a cozy family-owned and operated hotel located ON THE BROADWALK in Hollywood Beach, Florida. Our boutique, 8-room hotel was built in 1950, and it is one of the last remaining beachfront hotels designed in the Art Deco style.Our guests enjoy a wide array of amenities that include: ocean front rooms, a large tiki bar in our courtyard, seating alongside the Hollywood broadwalk, scenic views of the beach, nearby shops and restaurants, free wifi, free cable, on-site washer/dryer, live music, and fresh linens daily. Our staff is extremely friendly and professional, and we are always nearby to assist with any special requests. Hollywood Beach is one of the premier beach destinations in the world. The city provides twenty-one lifeguard towers and eight first-aid stations. An icon of Art Moderne architecture on Hollywood Beach’s famed Broadwalk, The Walkabout Beach Resort, is a classic 1940’s boutique hotel. Those who have visited claim it has the perfect blend of characteristics: chic, warm and inviting, glamorous, and tastefully modernized.To experience The Walkabout Beach Resort, is to experience Hollywood Beach at its best. In keeping with its classic style, eight oceanfront guest rooms are immaculately styled with the elegance of another era – wooden and terrazzo floors, interiors with rich textures, soft pink monochromatic colors, and decorations with a nod to its illustrious past mark the furnishings. Each room is adorned with vintage black and white photographs cataloguing Hollywood’s social history dating back to the 1920’s. When you stay at The Walkabout, discover its delightful Art Moderne ambiance and see how its past has been preserved to its original beauty. The Walkabout is known for its remarkable beachfront setting and legendary Hollywood Beach, Florida hotel location - on the Broadwalk. Named one of America's best beach Broadwalks by Travel + Leisure, the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is more than 2 miles long, sizzling with energy that embodies the diversity Hollywood Beach stands for - bustling sidewalk cafes, unique shops, multi-hued streamline Art Moderne buildings, and unforgettable ocean views. Step out from the Broadwalk and spend the day settled on white sands, by a glistening ocean on one of South Florida’s most beautiful beaches. Still, the most popular pastime on the beach is simply savoring the charming character of this truly unique setting, so reserve a day for relaxing to the sound of soothing waves. ... more   less
