The staff was friendly. The "front desk" area was make shift office furniture and looked out of place. The cleanliness of the hotel is not that great. I wore my sandals in the shower. I saw hair all over the bathroom floor and it was not mine. The walls were dirty as well as the baseboards throughout the room and... More

I chose Hotel Sheldon strictly based upon other reviews from Trip Advisor. I am so glad I did! Although the facility is nothing fancy, it was exactly what I needed for a wonderful trip to sunny south Florida. The staff was helpful, my room was small but clean, and the bed was very comfortable. My hotel stay included complimentary beach... More

Hotel is quaint, rooms are small with great view of Hollywood beach. The Boardwalk is great day and night. Free parking is a plus. Beach is beautiful. Nice eateries along boardwalk and live music as well. Great for families and couples. 15 min drive from South Beach. Beautiful sunsets can be taken in from this hotel.

Staff was very helpful. Even gave me chairs to take on the beach! I also forgot my card at check in and was going to get something to eat, the guy at checkin ran down the boardwalk to get my card back to me. Very trustworthy staff. Still doing Reno but my room was clean and I could see the... More

Upon arrival, we were given a parking pass and treated very kindly by front desk staff. I did immediately notice that the front area is stuck between looking old and run down and dingy to "maybe" in the process of renovation. We were told we had an ocean view- and yes we did see a tiny spot of ocean in... More

We stayed at the hotel for four nights February 23 through the 27th. The rooms are clean and updated modern bathroom very comfortable. The staff was fantastic so accommodating we had a late flight out let us lock our luggage in the office and still let us use the beach chairs and towels while we waited our flight. The location...

Standard hotel room. Small dorm fridge and coffee maker in room. no microwave. Have to ask for a hair dryer or ironing board. Bathroom is very small with no shelving- not even in the shower. absolutely no where to put your stuff except a hook on the back of the door. The closet rod was 6.5 feet off the floor!... More

My book club recently returned from a 3-day trip to Hollywood, FL, where we stayed at the Hotel Sheldon. Back in Sept., 2014 we reserved two rooms for four women, each with two double beds and a partial ocean view. When we arrived at check-in time in Feb. 2015, we got one room on the 3rd floor with a king... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sheldon for a couple of days and I was disappointed with it. Several reviews I read were positive enough to entice us to save the extra $200 per night that the Crowne Plaza would have cost. The hotel is "newly" renovated using the cheapest materials possible in the worst taste! These are already... More

We have stayed a handful of times before and this time chose to bring our children for a family vacation over their 4 day weekend. We have seen this place improve greatly through the remodel but what remains the same is the staff, the manager, Javier, and his desk clerks and maintenance person we recognize trip after trip there over...
