Rooms have been recently remodeled and are beautiful. Not much to the hotel, no restaurant/bar, pool, etc. But none of those things are needed. You step out the lobby door and within steps you're on a beautiful beach. There are only 2 rooms with oceanfront balconies, I suggest them. You can't beat the location and price of this hotel!!

Being right on the boardwalk (or Broadwalk as it's referred to) was fantastic. Hotel itself was good, definitely not outstanding. Not many amenities are available, but the location made this a Very Good rating. Restaurants along the boardwalk made feeding my extended family a breeze.

This is a no frills hotel but when you are located on the boardwalk where the Sheldon is, you don't need frills. Walk outside your door and there are tons of restaurants, shops and of course the beach. We had corner room 336 facing the ocean. It was very big! For this price I could not ask for anything else....

After stopping several places and finding rates at around $300 a night, stumbled across Hotel Sheldon for 1/2 that. Our room was adequate. Comfortable bed. I was more impressed with the location right on the boardwalk and beach. No AAA discount, no room upgrades even though only a few other guests there, but that's fine. This was just a pit... More

The Hotel Sheldon has lovely views of the beach in the front-facing rooms. Our room (328) was one of two with a small balcony- great for people watching and beach. The brochures advertise ocean sounds; be advised that- due to the Techno being broadcast by the Spa in the hotel building, the Hip Hop from the Yogurt store in front,... More

We stayed here a year or so ago and had a great time! I booked a room 2 months ago, and when we arrived we were told our room is "under construction". We booked this specific room because it's the only one with a balcony. It was our wedding anniversary and we were looking forward being right on the beach.... More

CONS: The Hotel is undergoing a major renovation. The room we booked was intercoastal/city view and the view was of a parking garage demolition and the roofs of other buildings. There was wires strung across door frames, torn up lamp shades, peeling paint and the floor was horribly filthy. The staff at the Front Desk was a "warm Body" to... More

The Hotel Sheldon is a "no frills" hotel right on the Hollywood Boardwalk - You can not beat the ocean view from the hotel.... The hotel does not offer lots of amenities and it doesn't need to....its location is worth more than any of the other frills that other places might have... The rooms are simple - very simple... Why?... More
