We made reservations, Kristen was excellent in the correspondence with me prior to arrival because we thought we would not get there before the office closed. We got off work early enough to get there about 8:30. Kristen was great, so hospitable when we arrived, felt very welcomed. It was a nice change from the usual check-in at most hotels.... More

I was traveling with my mother, we arrived on Sunday in the afternoon and there was no parking for us, even though we were suppose to have a guaranteed spot with our hotel reservation. Being in south Florida, it was 98 degrees and I had to fight with the front desk staff member for over a half hour until he... More

This hotel is definitely older but it is kept up. My window from the 2nd story faced the ocean, what a beautiful view. Very nice place to stay with kids, since you can see everything from the beach. We enjoyed the use of the grills in the courtyard, and the kitchenettes. The only complaint I would have is we had... More

This place is great. Right on the broad walk and beach this is an older inn that has been upgraded. All the units have kitchen facilities so if you want to avoid eating out you can make all your own meals here. We had are entire wedding party stay here, 16 rooms of the 28 available. All our guests are... More

We've been staying in Riptide in April 2014 for 13 nights. We occupied oceanfront room Nr.8 on the upper floor of South building with queen bed and sofa and stuunning veiw from the window. The beach was just few steps in front across the Hollywood Boardwalk. Live music and noise from Tiki Bar didn't annoyed us too much because we... More

Great location. Everything else was acceptable except the hotel bar staff. I found the majority of the staff to be snobby at best. After 7 days at the hotel with 3 groups of friends we all came to the same conclusion. The cleaning lady and the front desk clerk we friendly, pricing was great, beds were a little hard, rooms...

For an expensive and busy area, this hotel was a good value. Accommodations were good, not spectacular, though the staff was very friendly and helpful. The A/C in the room was exceptionally loud but kept the room nice and cool. The little kitchen area, with fridge, stove, microwave and coffeemaker - even dishes and utensils - was very appreciated. Nice... More

This place has bare essentials but the location and view cannot be beat. Breakfast (not free) is available at around $10. If you prefer to sip on coffee while watching the beautiful sunrise, I suggest you bring your own. The room had a pot but no coffee! Since the office didn't open until 8:00 or a little after, the coffee... More
