We stayed one week in room number 7. When we arrived we found the place quite dirty and in a bad condition. Especially the bathroom was really disgusting. The kitchen was not well equipped and the oven did not work properly. The location was great, but I would not recommend going there.

Located barely a half a block from beautiful Hollywood Beach and the famous boardwalk this Hotel/Motel has a first class location. We had a late flight into Ft. Lauderdale and the front desk staff were extremely gracious in staying late to ensure our quick and easy check in. We opted for what they call the "Crow's Nest" up a long... More

I usually do not bother writing reviews (as I know that most hotels have little things that are bound to happen--especially at this price range). However, the high ratings on here are highly misleading. Location (and parking)-wise this place is great, but that is about it. I booked the oceanview suite for our family based on the pictures and reviews... More

The Marlin strives to satisfy each and every guest to ensure a wonderful stay. Unfortunately, not everyone can be satisfied. We gladly address areas needing improvement in order to keep the Marlin Beachside Hotel among the highest ranked Small Inns on Hollywood Beach. More

Excellent location and the most accomodating manager Elvis. I stay with them several times a year and very happy with my choice. The beach is one minute away though the property isnt oceanfront. Plan to return again.

My husband and I stayed here with our two sons (2&5). Elvis was so welcoming and helpful which helped make the experience even better! The corner room on the ground floor makes it feel like your own private beach house! We loved grilling on the hotel private grill and how close it was to the beach. The rooms are very... More

Recently stayed here after staying at many locations on the boardwalk over the years, could easily say this is one of the best places to go if you're in Hollywood. Not on the boardwalk but might as well be, super close to the beach. Not too far from all the attractions but far enough that you can still get a... More

I just returned from a wonderful 5 day stay at The Marlin Motel,just steps from beautiful Hollywood Beach. The motel is a cool funky blue color from the outside,one short block from the water,and the beach could be seen from both the living room and bedroom. I stayed in Room 1 which was a very spacious king bed suite with... More

Enjoyed my week at the Marlin Beachside Hotel. The hotel is calm, quiet, and a half a block from the boardwalk and beach. My room on the second floor (#9) had a small kitchen with fridge, stove, and microwave. Enjoyed getting up just before dawn and walking to the beach to watch the sunrise. Took the local trolley into the... More
