“Great Location to Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights. If you want to be away from the madness of Miami and a quiet place.....Hollywood Beach is the best. It is about 30 minutes from Miami and Angelfish inn is just 3 minutes walk from the famous boardwalk.
It is a small inn with only a few rooms and the proprietor - Karin is very helpful. Our room was comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen. There is no housekeeping and no toiletries so be sure to bring your own. It was very quaint and they decorated the room with pictures of fishes.
It is like a small apartment...very cosy.
The only problem is the limited parking. Karin was nice to give us the parking pass where we can park on the road. But if you are staying during the weekend, you might have problems finding a spot as many locals come to the beach. Unless it is off peak, then you will have problems. If you want to park at the Inn, you need to pay for parking.
We were out most of the time and we had no problems finding parking at night.
Overall, a good stay and we enjoyed it.

Wonderful stay over Memorial Day weekend. The room was exactly as advertised and spotlessly clean. We appreciated the beach chairs and loved the fish, turtles and cats. This was by far the best pet-friendly beach accomodations we've had in FL with such a great price. We have found our new weekend getaway spot. Thanks so much Karin!!!

Living only 20 minutes away from the Angelfish Inn, I thought it would be quite impossible to feel like I'd be on vacation staying at the Angelfish Inn. Was I wrong! From the moment I parked my car, (and didn't move it once during my four day stay)I enjoyed a large slice of paradise. Literally less than three minutes walking distance to the beach, the Angelfish Inn is clean, quaint, and very homey. My one bedroom apartment came equipped with all the luxuries of home, without any of the stress. The management is more than attentive, they made me feel like family. Not only would I recommend the Angelfish to my friends and family (only the ones I like), but I've already made reservations for another week at the end of June. I can't wait to go back. Angelfish Inn-Best Staycation Ever!

If you're looking for a highrise hotel with all the bells and whistles, this isn't the place for you. If you want a comfortable, very clean, fun and funky place just a few steps from the beach and broadwalk, this is it. We spent four days and had a great time. Our room had a kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator. As other reviews indicated, Karin is a wonderful host, and she does everything she can to make your stay pleasant - even little things like providing two grills in the courtyard for guests and a supply of beach chairs and umbrellas. We'll definitely be back.

If you are planning a trip to Hollywood Beach, you already know what you are looking for. Laid back, casual, funky and fun. Angelfish is a far cry from a 4 star property but perfect location and vibe for a Hollywood vacation. Really should say that the rooms are more like efficiency apartments (no daily housekeeping, all rooms have kitchens...) but when we arrived, the room was ready, perfectly clean and the hostess couldn't have been more accommodating. One block off the beach and boardwalk (no real streets to cross though) and lots of cheap eats and fine dining in the area. Bit of a squeak on the otherwise very comfortable bed.

This cozy, block from the ocean hotel is a great place to stay if visiting Hollywood Beach, we stayed 4 days and the owner, Karin is the most outgoing friendly person you'll ever meet! Stayed in room 9, just the right size for the two of us (honeymoon). Very Clean, not even a grain of sand under the bed, trust me...sand goes everwhere too. Don't forget to meet the cats and turtles! This place is only a block from the Broadwalk, right next to the Crystal Towers and just across the parking lot for the amptheater performances in the evenings. Walking distance to Giorgio's Bakery and the Water Taxi. We will come back to stay, hated to leave...after visiting the area, were seriously thinking of moving here! Thakns Karin for the great service!

Room Tip: All the rooms look great, onsite laundry machines too!

April 4th was the due date of our third grandchild. We read the trip advisor and picked Angelfish Inn as our place to stay for what we though would be one week. The little one came almost three weeks later. Karin, our gracious host, was able to accomodate us despite the fact she had a preplanned event. All the rooms were very clean. We stayed in rooms, 8, 12 and,16. Room 16 was a bit outdated but very large and spacious. We were very comfortable as all the rooms came complete with a kitchen, including all utensils. Karin treated us like family. She has a talent for creating a warm and friendly environment. She not only provided beach towels but, chairs and umbrellas as well. The place has character. Incredible value. Karin made a memorable time for our family feel more special. Once the baby was born we went back to the Inn and had a great time. We would recommend this Inn to all of our family and friends.
