“Charming pink hotel, right on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

My husband and I spent a night at the Walkabout before heading to Miami Beach (a short drive away) the following morning. Delightful, small and charming hotel. We had a studio room--quite large, impeccably clean, and well-equipped. The large main room had a queen-size bed and a small kitchen area with an eat-on bar and stools. Lovely color scheme--sand-colored walls and blue ceiling. Small bathroom but adequate. Good location at the northern end of the Broadwalk, so less busy, and right on the beach/Boardwalk. We had a minor problem with the cable TV service which the management resolved efficiently and cheerfully. Highly recommend!

This is visit #5 to the Walkabout for my husband and me. I would love to lie and give this place a bad review so that we will not have a problem booking a room in the future, but.....I can't, because it is a true gem. We love coming here, and we will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view.

Me, my husband and son stayed in the Walkabout for two night in August 2012. The only word to describe this place is fantastic, was made to feel very welcome by the staff, the tower room was where we stayed, it was very clean and everything you needed~a real home from home feel and the view was so beautiful, I could hear the waves in the morning when I walked in to the lounge area~breath taking! We had breafast along the prominad in a lovely cafe and rented fun cycles, which was so much fun. The weather was glorious and wish we could have stayed longer. We will definatly return to the Walkabout. Thank you Jo, Phil and Dylan from Wales UK x

We had an excellent stay at the hotel. Two other families also stayed and we enjoyed the tiki bar and the beach. The room was excellent and very clean. We definitely plan on returning to this hotel in the future. Parking was provide in the parking garage next door free of charge.

My wife and I travel regularly to South Florida and have stayed at the Walkabout 20 times or more. It is our home away from home with incredible views of the ocean and easy access to all the shops and resturaunts on Hollywood's Broadwalk. The staff is friendly and very accomodating. With the Tiki bar right outside your door, a cheap drink is always at hand. this little art deco style botique hotel is a real gem.

I've stayed there three times just as a nice getaway (I live in south Florida but not in Hollywood). The room I stayed in - got the same one twice and a different one the third time, both had an absolutely awesome view of the ocean and sunrise/sunset. The place was always immaculate and housekeeping always did a wonderful job. The tiki bar was nice outside, a lot of locals seem to frequent it, but they were friendly as was the bartender, and drinks were reasonably priced. I had no complaints, quite happy with the place - it may be a bit pricey but so is everything else in the area and this place is nicer in my opinion than the Marriott or Ramada nearby. I said the restaurant was excellent on my rating because that's the only way I knew to rate the tiki bar but I don't think they had food....

Room Tip: Despite the steep stairs, the second floor ocean view has the best view...

My husband and I discovered the Walkabout by chance, we were having drinks at the Hollywood Marriott next store viewing the area to hold my daughter's baby shower and we notice this cute little resort next door, we wandered over before leaving and spoke with manager who was on duty. We asked if we could look at one of the rooms, wow it was like being back in Key West....fabulous rooms and views from all of them, we fell in love with it ever since, we live in Boca Raton and we stay at the Walkabout at least 3 times a year, the staff is friendly, rooms are always clean and they always are working to approve the property. If you are looking to be treated like a person and feel completely relaxed then the Walkabout is for you. To be able to look out your window and see the ocean is always amazing .......

Room Tip: There is no pool or Resturant......the tower suites are fabulous and studio 2 is great for a small c...
