“Delightful Change of Plans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

When planning a trip to Hollywood, FL recently, my girlfriend and I had originally made reservations at another hotel. That turned out to be a disastrous decision as we encountered nothing but issues when we tried to contact the management there to confirm our reservations. Eventually we became so frustrated that we canceled our reservations and went looking for another place to stay.

Enter the Angelfish Inn. It was recommended as an alternative for the other (bad) hotel and so we headed to their website to check it out. Immediately we fell in love with the charm of the place! It's cute and fun and bright and the site is so very welcoming! When we called to see if they had vacancies, we were immediately connected with the manager Jolanta. She was a delight! Super friendly and eager to make our stay easy and convenient. When we arrived, our room was clean and ready. Everything was bright colors and clean whites. I can't emphasize how clean it was! Spotless! The on-site manager that day was extremely friendly. Throughout our stay every single staff member we met went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and happy!

You cannot beat the location! Just a block from the boardwalk and right around the corner from some of the best food on the Hollywood Beach boardwalk!

I rarely write reviews, and I rarely feel as strongly as I do in this case. I would recommend the Angelfish to anyone and everyone looking for a place to stay in Hollywood!!

Room Tip: They're all fantastic, look for one on the patio.

We are a family with 2 small children and this place was perfect for us: the room had a separated bedroom, lots of windows, full kitchen and 2 tvs. It is just one block from the beach, with good restaurants close by and a couple of supermarkets in short driving distance (great to get fruit, drinks and snacks). They have a little pond with turtles and tadpoles and a very cute cat roaming the inn. It is pet friendly and the other guests had so nice and well behaved dogs. They have washer/dryer machines (bring quarters). This is a good value for the area. Sure, towels and other items are a bit worn out, but rooms are sunny, everything was clean and the location is just perfect. We were very pleased with our experience (May 2014).

Room Tip: Parking is scarce, it is a good idea to reserve a parking lot as well.

We have been here twice. Both times was like being at my aunts summer cottage from years gone by. It is a block from the beach, clean and very comfortable. If you are looking for that high priced place on the beach this may not be for you. It you are looking for a good place at a good price you cannot go wrong. Things are informal here. The owner remembered us from our first stay abd just told us you know where things are, enjoy. That was check in. As I said like being at a family cottage you have been going to all your life. There is a kitchen in each room and a gas grill in the court yard. Helps save money on meals and use the leftovers from restaurants.

We had cruised with friends from Denmark and showed them our room. They wished they had stayed here instead of the high priced hotel they were at.

Both times we stayed we paid the extra for a parking spot, only $10. We think it is worth the extra as parking can be difficult at times and you have to pay for street parking anyway.

We hope the big hotel being built near by does not ruin the Hollywood beach area and this hotel. It will not be done for a year so check this out before that time.

We spent one week in this cute inn in March 2014. We chose this spot because it was so close to the beach and because of all that is available.

We were not disappointed. The welcome was great, the owner is very nice, she showed us around the property. We had a large studio with a separate bedroom. It was clean and well supplied. There are some beach chairs available, which was convenient for us. You can walk to the beach, and there are a lot of restaurants nearby.

We were very happy to stay there, and will not hesitate to return if we ever go back to the area.

We went here after a 7 day cruise to unwind before we headed home, and this place was very pleasant. The owner is very nice and the property is well maintained. We especially loved the location as it was very convenient to get to the beach and the boardwalk (which has everything from food to bars and shopping) Angelfish inn is an older property with lots of character, it has everything you need for a wonderful stay. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. We will be back for sure!

Had an absolutely wonderful, relaxing week! The room was neat and clean with a relaxing beach décor. It had a kitchenette, tv, wifi, dinette, sofa and a very comfortable queen size bed. All the comforts of home. Karin was always available and was very kind and helpful. It is only a few steps from the boardwalk and beach. There are quite a few restaurants, bars and shops. There is also live music a couple times a week. Getting up at 7am to warm, sunny weather and having breakfast on the boardwalk while looking at the ocean.....can you beat that! If my husband and I are fortunate enough to be able to go back to Hollywood, FL next year, we will absolutely be staying at the Angelfish Inn. Thanks Karin!
