“wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2010

I chose the Ocean Inn based on the reviews on this site. When we first arrived we were very pleased with the location, the courtyard and the room. The hotel is just steps to the Boardwalk. The courtyard was very well decorated and maintained. It was small but I think they did a beautiful job with several areas to hang out. We had friends and family come over for a BBQ for two days in a row and they all were impressed with the hotel (including those who were staying at the nearby Diplomat). The room was super clean, which was great for a germaphobe like me. I called several times to ask questions about the amenities and Felipe was very kind and patient with me.
Anything we forgot like a basting brush for the grill or bug spray, they kindly gave us some. I was so impressed. I would most definitely stay here again and recommend it. This place rocks.

I loooooved this place. Right away the way we were greeted by Felipe was like we'd known him for years. It felt like a cross between a hotel and a bed and breakfast. He asked us what we were interested in and gave us some recommendations and highlights around the area, which were very helpful. It is along a main road, but they have built a little oasis in their courtyard with a fountain and hammock and little seating areas that are just wonderful...makes you feel like your in a paradise. Also, in the morning the made fresh muffins one day and they were still hot...yummy!
I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone staying in Hollywood or even in Ft. Lauderdale. It was a 10 min. drive from the Ft. Lauderdale airport, but you heard no planes. The beach area had people, but wasn't crowded, perfect combo. The water was crystal clear and light blue and very gentle waves, heaven! The hotel is a block off the beach, perfect.

My wife and I stopped off on our way to the Keys. Great staff. Beautiful courtyard. Close walk to the great beaches of Hollywood. Motel is older, but the way it's maintained, we call that character :). Absolute thumbs up!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2010

We selected the inn based on trip advisor reviews. It was a short drive from FLL which was great since we had flown all day. We arrived just prior to the office closing for the night. We were able to dump our stuff in the room and walk the short distance to the boardwalk/beach. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the room was tired. The wall ac was loud, the refrigerator was a bit rusty, the tv and remote didn't operate properly, and the closet doors weren't hung properly so they were difficult to use. On the positive side, the grounds were cute, the room was clean, and the internet connection worked well. We did book a standard room, so perhaps an upgraded room would have been nicer. Parking was available and the office did offer towels, etc. for beach use if desired.

Nestled between the inter-coastal waterway and the Ocean, attractions were only a short walk or drive away. The Ocean Inn provides a great launching point for all types of activities. The Ocean Inn was well prepared to provide the best visit possible by ensuring that we had everything we need. Beach towels, Beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas and laundry facilities. We found the staff very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. They accomodated all of our needs and were very focused to ensure our stay was the very best. We would highly reccommend the Ocean Inn to anyone who is looking for a quiet, secure and relaxing location that has all the comforts of home while enjoying being away from home. We'll be back.

What a charming place to stay! The grounds are lovely, the rooms are funky and fun and the staff is wonderful. One minute walk to the beach and the broadwalk. There are places to eat within a nice walking distance. We loved our stay and hope to return! Hollywood Beach is beautiful!
