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. 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... More

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

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

6 of us stayed in 3 rooms for 3 nights prior to a cruise. Reading the reviews I didn't think it could be so perfect, It lived up to all expectations.If you have large cases and not fit have a ground floor room.

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.
