“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Location perfect! Owner ( Karin) and hospitality wonderful! Courtyard was great with BBQ grills, lounge chairs, tropical feel. Great place for making new friends and we actually did that! Boardwalk is such a short walk I wouldn't even call it a walk. We love to stay in "mom's and pop's" , this is not for the Marriott crowd, but it's clean, eclectic, and a happy place to stay. Alot of construction all around it, but that's just Hollywood Beach. Really enjoyed our stay. ( walking distance to a lot of great places to eat and drink but La Tubs is a must try, and Flickers is great too)

Room Tip: I would choose one of the larger rooms but they are all good.

This is our type of Inn! Tommy and I had a great time... The rooms are a perfect size with King or Queen beds, Full kitchen and nice size bathrooms and showers. The rooms are decorated bright and cheery. The beach and Broadwalk are so very close (just down the block), and lots of restaurants all within walking distance (Le Tub is a must to eat at...). There is a small court yard at the Inn where you can Barbeque, read books or lay in the sun, and in the evening...meet new friends, which we did. Fun times had by all. Karin, the owner, is so very friendly, knowledgeable of the area and here is the kicker...She offered to take us to the airport, which she and her husband did, just because she was going to the gym and the airport was not out of the way!! WOW....how many owners do THAT for their guests? This would have costs us $25.00 or so. We offered to pay her, but she wouldn't hear of it..."Are you kidding me?" she said! We said our Goodbyes and wished them a Happy Thanksgiving...what a pleasant stay we had and a pleasant person we had met. Stay at The Angel Fish if ever in the area...you will not be disappointed!!!

My husband and I stayed at Angelfish for one night while traveling from Fort Lauderdale to the Keys. We arrived at almost 9:30 at night, and Karen was wonderful in checking us in late, as well as suggesting some very close places to eat dinner. I thought the room was just what we needed; it was clean, there was a/c, and the bed was comfortable. If you are the type of person who enjoys your Holiday Inns and Marriotts, this is not the place for you. While it is comfortable, it is NOT a chain hotel, so don't expect that. The location is wonderful, so close to the beach! And the rooms were quiet. The only complaint I had was that there was construction going on close by, which was mostly drowned out by the sound of the a/c but could still be heard. Don't let the cats or the smell of cigarettes in the main office throw you off. The place is well-taken care of, Karen is wonderful, and the location is ideal.

Thank you so much for your review. I glad you found our place accommodating and hope you return for another visit. I guess i thought lighting candles in the office would cover my bad habit, probably time to step outside to smoke or better yet quit. maybe this will be my year.

We found the Angelfish Inn perfect for us and our 2 children. First of all in the courtyard, there are fish and turtles that the children can look at to keep them occupied while we unpacked. Karen was an invaluable asset on what to do near and around the Hollywood and Ft. Lauderdale area.

Rooms were clean and well maintained and with the 4 of us the room did not seem that small. If you are planning to come to this area, I would recommend Karen and her outstanding property in Hollywood.

We found Angelfish to be adorable, clean and in a great location. A half a block from the Hollywood beach boardwalk, it was a quiet, but near everything location. The rooms are small but bright and cheerful. Everything worked well. There is a cute courtyard to sit with your morning coffee, or at night. Neighbors chat and if feels safe and pleasant. Karin, the owner pops in often and she is cheerful, helpful and thankful for your patronage. We left two phone chargers behind. Before I even noticed, she had sent be an email and offered to mail them to me. She sent them right away. I would definitely stay at Angelfish again and would recommend it to anyone wanting a real South Florida beach experience!

Stayed at AngelFish Inn for a week, we had a large 1 bedroom appartment (#15) that we called home. Very clean and comfortable, fully equipped like your kitchen, even had martini glasses in cupboard lol, the courtyard is great to hang out with a turtle and coi fish pond. There is 2 BBQ we can use. Also there is washer and dryer on place. The place is pet friendly and jinx the cat was our pet for the last 3 days, as soon as we would get home, jinx would come right to the door to hang out with us, loved it lol parking available upon 10$ charge a day, which is well worth.
We are already planning to go back!!
Thank you for the great hospitality!

Stayed at the Angelfish Inn this past weekend. This is the third time we have stayed here since we discovered it approximately a year or so ago. We love this place! Very cute, clean and pet friendly -- and Karin the owner is wonderful! The rooms (really suites) have everything you need -- TVs, a fully equipped kitchen, free Wi-Fi. The outside garden area is beautiful with plenty of space to hang out. There is also free parking. The location of the Angelfish is also great – a block from the beach and walking distance to all the shopping, bars and restaurants in Hollywood Beach. Highly recommended!
