I have been trying to decide what to say about this hote property. We book this hotel back in Sept 2012 . It was our day in Hollywood Beach to enjoy with our large family group before going on our long awaited cruise on the ALLURE. Very excited to kick off our day at Hollywood Beach and walk the boardwalk. Seek out the shops and resturants which we did once we got over our frustration and disapointment.
We stayed at this hote Feb 16th -17th. The area is beautiful, great location, the pool areas are nice and the building itself is not too bad. Its OLD and historic but that is what makes it unique and interesting.
Rooms are very DATED and the shower/tubs .... OLD and kind of scummy. We did not notice any bad smells thank god . Some rooms did not have pillows or blankets. The Front desk Unorganzied and untrained.. We had a problem right from the get go. We were told that the hotel had overbooked and that part of our family group was going to be shuttled to another hotel by the airport where we just came from. We said straight out NOT HAPPENING and that the hotel staff had to fix this. We booked WAY in advance and we were a large family group and not separating. The hotel staff were KIDS, disorganzied and not trained in our opinion to work a busy front desk of a popular tourist destination. Some of us spent two hours in the lobby sorting this out. We ended up having to share rooms as some of the rooms had pull our couches. They would not reimburse our credit cards said it had to be done with our travel agent. Needless to say the pull out couches were horrible, those that slept on them got NO SLEEP. It has taken us a while since returning home to get our money back but we have. There was a lot of frsutration and anger but it was a beautiful day in Ft Lauderdale and we did not want this to ruin our day/evening before catching the ship the next day. When all was said and done we had a lovely lunch on a terrace that over looks the pool and boardwalk and ocean and we had a great time. We enjoyed a lovely dinner on the boardwalk later that evening . This hotel needs lots of work, it can keep its charm but it needs a TOTAL OVERHAUL. Needs tender loving care and its a shame it does not get it.
