She said NO...asked about AAA rates...she said none...asked if there was a possibility for an early check in...she said yes...for $10/hour prior to check in time... What??? Asked if... More

This hotel was my worst nightmare! The rooms are nasty/not clean! Hair in the bed,hair in the bathroom, bugs under the bed, trash left in the rooms! When we asked why all that stuff was left there. Their response was, "you guys did it". How immature of them, this hotel is a wreck! The ceilings look as if you are... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Sheldon for 4 nights. We stayed in one of the Oceanfront rooms with a balcony, I would highly recommend one of these 2 rooms if available. The hotel is basic, clean, at the location on the boardwalk was great. And we found the staff to be friendly and accomadating. We found a... More

If you stay here, you have to ask for the renovated rooms. They are not the best in the city, but the best if you must stay right on the beach. Comfy, good AC and large shower. All in all , I will return here again.

Location of this resort is perfect..directly on the broad walk and steps from tons of restaurants and bars. You do get what you pay for though, and for such little money directly on the beach, you are paying for location but not necessarily the best room. Our room was not facing the ocean, so very inexpensive, but did feel like... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Sheldon on March 26-April1, 2013. It is a older hotel, but it was so clean. There is some remodeling going on. Brenda at the front desk (and it is a desk in the front) was fantastic. Nothing fancy, but very clean. Broadwalk is right outside hotel doors and there are so many... More

While researching hotels in the Hollywood, FL area, I came across the Hotel Sheldon. The reviews were mostly good, however,... More

It's on the Broadwalk, if that's what you need. Free parking, beach chairs, & beach towels. Room was spacious. Bath is very dated, but functional. Beds were a little soft for me. Food & drink are all easily walkable with the possible exception of breakfast. Cool looking building.

Room came with a mini fridge and wifi. Bathroom was o.k. -paint job was interesting... For the price it was well worth it. Ask for the... More
