“Loved then Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

I was in room 5 and loved it. Great view and right in front of the beach. I liked all the amenities the hotel had to offer. We came in late and the bartender had our key. I would definitely stay again. The bathroom could use an update but it was nothing that would deter me from staying again.

Room Tip: I had room 5 and it had bay windows to the beach. Fantastic

We were looking for somewhere quiet and relaxed to stay, really close to the beach. Walkabout is exactly that. Comfortable, cosy suite with all the facilities we needed. The beach, which is kept spotless, is literally steps away, and it's right on the boulevard. Restaurants and shops right at your doorstep, but no nightly noise and bustle. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended, so much more personal than the big hotel chains.

We arrived after staying in PCB for a few days. We liked the quiet, retro feel.Our kids could walk safely to get ice cream and we could see them on the beach from our room. The kitchen could use a little updating, but the decor and linens were great. Clean, comfortable and the staff very helpful. Good drinks at the Tiki Bar which had a mix of locals and walk ups. The beach is close and clean. Found lots of shell.We had a great time. Great dinner at GG's , we didn't dress appropriately but the waiter was very nice and gracious with our girls. We will go back.

My husband and I first stayed here 2 years ago when he returned home safely from Afghanistan (thank god). To celebrate he wanted to stay on Hollywood Beach where he had some of his best memories in youth. We stayed the first night at the Marriott and happened upon someone staying at the Walkabout on the boardwalk who was saying how much they loved their stay and how personal it was. We weren't getting that kind of experience at the Marriott so we switched over and fell in love! The second time was this past Memorial Day Weekend for some R&R. We had a day with all our friends and family coming down to the beach and the next two days were just my husband and I so it's great for friends, families, and couples. We've always stayed in the suites. First time we stayed in the 2nd floor suite, last time on the first floor suites and we loved both of them. The beach is literraly steps away and get drinks at the tiki bar as the late afternoon sets in. It's becoming a family staple, but it's also nice for just me and him.

Room Tip: I recommend the suites closest to the ocean - you won't regret it! Also ask for Sherry - she'...

While the hotel is ocean front room 3 does not give you a ocean view unless you are standing in tub or craming your neck to right corner of front window through the tiki bar, other wise u are looking at stairs or street alley. Rooms are clean, staff was nice, tiki bar was dog friendly probably why locals like it, is conveniently located on boardwalk, beach chairs were useless because were need of repair or broken, you can rent for 30. Cabana, 2 beach chairs and pads from local vendor on beach, kitchenette need updating and bed needs new mattress since you could feel the springs. I was very excited befor I got there by pictures on web, it look like other suits appear to have oceanview as promised in ad but I feel we were over charged for suit 3. We as for different rm even agreed to upgrade but they we booked. We had great meals next door at Merroitt and you do get
free parking at the Merroitt, ps the bathroom is what you get in a cruise ship.

Room Tip: Do not choose room 3 if expecting an ocean view, NO pool or Fitness center on sight

With a friendly staff and cozy hotel, it felt like a private resort right in all the fun of Hollywood Beach. The tiki bar at the hotel has a great view of the ocean and the boardwalk. Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. The kitchen had refrigerator and area for simple food prep that we used for snacking. With the short walk across the boardwalk to the beach, it was simple to get refreshments all day long. While the hotel doesn't have a restaurant, we had delivery from several great places. Meanwhile, we could walk or bike the boardwalk. Just great fun.

We spent one night here in April before a cruise and want to come back for a longer vacation. We arrived after 7pm and checked in at the Tiki Hut bar...where we had drinks later (much cheaper than at the Marriott bar next door). Our room was on the 2nd floor (there is no elevator) with a view of the water and the back overlooked another beach bar/restaurant. The Air conditioner worked great and there is a ceiling fan over the bed. There is even a small kitchen in the room. The bathroom was small but just fine with us and it was pink too. We loved that everything had a pink tint...even the sheets. Breakfast is just a short stroll at any of the many restaurants down the "Broadwalk" Some cute shops. The beach is soft white sand and the water was pretty calm while we were there. Hope to go back soon.

Room Tip: If you can't handle the stairs ask for a first floor room. No pool but the ocean is just steps...
