I wanted a vacation on the beach...and thought this place cant be as bad as they say. I am here to tell you...all the bad reviews are 100% true! When arriving...was greeted by two drunk guys...they work at the hotel. One showed me a room...which I knew I would not stay in...but then he said I couldnt stay in that... More

THIS PLACE IS DISGUSTING. Yes, it is a two minute walk to the beach but you sure as heck pay for it. No parking, i had to park two streets over. Ants and bugs EVERYWHERE, sheets looked used upon arrival, walls were filthy, things went missing, you can hear EVERYTHING that people are doing and the list goes on and... More

Instead of heeding the warnings I read on trip advisor I decided to stay here with my family. OMG this was the worst experience ever. Not only is it dirty and ragedy but it's true the owner rents to all kinds of crazy drunks and drug addicts. Every single morning we were woken up at 6am by them. My husband... More

This hotel is right on the Hollywood Boardwalk so we decided to stay there despite the trip advisor reviews. This place was visibly dirty, the furniture had been eaten away on the corners and there was mold on the bathroom floor and shower curtain. The lock to on the the door appeared to have been forced open on several occasions... More

The price was definitely right for being very close and walking distance to the beach. Motel is a half block from the beach, very accessible. Rooms appeared to be very clean. As a single male looking for quite accommodations near the beach, I was overall not disappointed. I would recommend this as a family place to stay too.Plenty of families... More

Horrible motel, management rents rooms to mostly prostitutes, drunks or drug addicts. When you leave your room thinking cause u locked the door no one will be allowed in..WRONG.. Management will unlock your door and allow the local drug addict to go through your things!!

Fortunately stayed only for 1 night (our last before departure) and that was already enough...First thing the guy at the front desk said to us was "hello and 88 $ a night". When we entered the room the lights did not work but maybe that would have been better anyway because the furniture and the fridge are from the early... More

I am rating this place average because I stayed here alone and can tolerate most things for short periods. However if I was with my wife of family, it would have gotten the lowest rating, here is why. You get what you pay for. Its close to the beach on a nice safe street, ,in fact this area is generally... More

Sun & Surf Motel was located a block from the beach in Hollywood Florida, right in the center of the Broadwalk action. The beach was big, the street was just redone with cobblestones and new palm trees, and everything you needed was within walking distance. The hotel was definitely a motel. With 5 people in my family, we got the... More

I wish to warn others not to get stuck at this place like we did. It was a cold weekend and there was no heat or hot water. The room was very dirty and very noisy. I have been traveling for 40 years and Hollywood Beach is my most visited destination. So I can honestly say this place did not... More
