We loved our stay at this property that has a very personal feel. The owners and staff are natural hosts. Exterior and interior of property in excellent shape; great curb appeal. Lots of people walking by stopped to get info. Less commercial location means for a more peaceful experience, but yet is a short walk to the more crowded part... More

What a nice place to stay! I was here on business and didn't want to stay in a high rise chain hotel. I wanted something with a personality. My studio apartment was so nice! The kitchen was so well stocked - nonstick skillet, blender, ice, wine glasses, and anything you ask for! The courtyard is so pretty. The place was... More

We spent 5 nights at the Bougainvillea, which is not on the beach but steps from it. The motel has a quaint little lawn courtyard with tables, lounging chairs sunshades, and BBQs. The studio we had had recently been renovated, including a brand new Ikea kitchen and a beautiful tiled stand-up shower. We had a king size bed. The only... More

Fantastic view with instant access to the beach. Located on a quiet stretch of the boardwalk but not too far to walk to a restaurant. Pleasant patio and veranda with plenty of tables and chairs to go around. You can open your windows on cool evenings to catch the ocean breeze and hear the waves break on the shore. The... More

Stayed at the Bougainvillea only one night after a mix up at the very nearby Ft lauderdale airport. Our "room", a one bedroom apartment was bigger than my first apartment and twice as nice. Had everything you need for a week at the ocean, small kitchen, dining table, living room area and seperate bedroom. Our room had been recently renovated.... More

My mother, my daughter (10 year old) and I stayed here early this month. The hotel is beautiful, very clean, nicely furnished. The beds are comfortable as was the pull out futon couch that my mother slept on.(It has a very thick and heavy futon mattress) Checking in and out were no problem and Leslie was so kind and helpful...

This is the perfect place for a relaxed vacation. Clean, quiet, close to the ocean and with very nice staff. My wife and I arrived late from the airport but everything was set including space for the car and we could check in officially the next morning. after a good nights sleep. At this place everything is done to make... More

We arrived late to the cutest hotel all lit and right on the water at the board walk. It was better than imagined, our room was full apartment with views from the bedroom and living room and kitchen right out to the beach! It is all well maintained, fresh paint, tasteful beach furniture in great shape and wonderful friendly staff.... More

I just returned from a wonderful conference in Hollywood, FL. The venue for the conference was already booked and I could not afford to stay in the high priced alternative. I searched Tripadvisor and found lovely reviews about the Sea Downs. The reviews were spot on; the Sea Downs is "a gem" The staff at the SeaDowns was wonderful both... More

We have visited Hollywood about 6 times over the last few years and always stayed at one of the big chain places. Always wondered what it would be like to stay at one of the little places. The opportunity arose when we were looking for a place to stay for a few nights before jumping on a cruise. The place... More
