We stayed in room #1, 2 adults and 2 teens. Location is obviously awesome. No it's not a new building. The place is probably 80 years old, so I'll cut them some slack. But it was very clean. No bugs! The king bed was very comfortable. The pull outs not so much, the boys managed. We only had 2 bath... More

I want to start by saying that the location was PERFECT!!! This was my daughter and I's first vacation together. We enjoyed having like our own little apt :) The boardwalk was fun walking through and also relaxing on the beach! I was ablw to sit on my patio and enjoy the view. We were in #2 and it was... More

We could not agree more with the review that Britta A gave, and echo her sentiments. It's hard to believe that they have a Trip Advisor sign of excellence on the front of the building! It must be very outdated. The only reason that I gave it a 2, was because of the proximity to the beach & Broadwalk. We... More

We really enjoyed our stay the Marlin! We stayed in suite 3, and were pleased. We have two children, ages 7 and 4. We were looking for something small and affordable to finish up our vacation after leaving Key Largo. We had 3 nights and 4 days until we flew home out of Ft. Lauderdale. Our goal was to find...

After looking over this property and the reviews, I went ahead and booked it. We arrived after 7:00 pm so the rental manager left the door unlocked and the keys inside. We were in room 3. Well, I shouldn't call it a "room" it was more of a cave. Let me start out with the BEST thing about this hotel,... More

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
