“Fun in the sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you want a relaxing place next to the ocean that is low key, friendly staff and no frills come to Scotties. This is our third trip and we love it here even though we have to fly across the US to get here its worth the time and energy. Scottie has a cold beverage in the refrigerator, the air conditioning on and the room is ready no matter what time we arrive. We always meet fun people because of the social atmosphere outside. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a reasonable place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are on the ground floor and you can't go wrong with any room.

We arrived late, so we had let the owner know about that. It wasn´t a problem, we got our roomnumber bij email. He was gonna leave the door unlocked en ac on. Everything was fine, but there were not enough bedsheets for the for of us. Owner was no there, and didn´r respont to my phone call. (owner, take a look at that) There were some people sitting out front who one of theme seemed to be an employee who gave us the missing sheets. We met the owner the day after, he is verry nice and easy going. We had a nice 3 nights stay, very close to the beach, Miami en Sawgrassmill mall. Nice places to eat at walking distance. Rooms were clean, had everything you need, and nice cool ac that doesnt make to much noise. Would stay again.

This is a small hotel within easy walking distance to the beach. To be truthful, I did have a problem the first night with check-in. I would recommend that if you're planning on arriving after 7:00 or 8:00 PM that you call ahead of time, so they can arrange your check in process. When I arrived at 11:30 PM, the office was closed, and calls to the phone number only went to voice mail. I ended up having to find somewhere else to sleep the first night of my stay.

But, don't let that one bad experience that happened to me discourage you from staying here. A simple phone call ahead of time would have made that a non-issue. I paid a very reasonable price to stay very close to the beach, and it included parking. My room was spacious and very clean. I found the place very easy to find. There are a lot of restaurants and shops along the boardwalk as well. I would gladly return.

We traveled with 2 adults and 2 young children (under 5). Stayed in the "large efficiency" (unit 21) which included a full kitchen, queen bed, pull out sofa, and a pack n play. Our front door opened to a walkway with 2 sitting chairs. A couple steps led to an interior courtyard with covered gathering area (seating for 10-20 people), lawn area with 4 comfortable chairs for sunning and a shower to stay cool, and a sandbox w/ toys and 2 chairs. Motel is 1 block from the Hollywood Beach boardwalk - which happens to have a spray park at the intersection of the street ODV is located on and 3 or so playgrounds within a 1 mi walk! Lots of restaurants, shops, etc. on the boardwalk. Very clean and safe - lots of walkers, runners, bikers, roller bladers, etc. on trail that is connected to boardwalk. We drove our car only to the grocery - walked everywhere else during our stay. exceptional place to stay with young kids (although we didn't see any others there during our stay) - close to everything yet safe with nice outdoor areas for the kids (and adults) to enjoy! The outdoor areas were close enough to our room that we sat outside while the kids napped - it's hard to find places where this is possible. Parking was free - we had to park across the street as there were no spots around the building during our stay. Onsite W/D was nice too!

Room Tip: Rooms on the end may be noisy (they're near the busy road). All of the other rooms seemed like...

It is a motel, but is well located, clean and pleasant. The owners are very helpful. Close to beach and with easy access to many places. No daily cleaning, only if you pay an extra fee, but when I arrived the room was very clean and was well maintained and it was great. The rooms are quite large, in my room had a kitchen (well equipped), a living room with TV and bedroom with a comfortable bed and another TV.

I stayed for a week in the 1 bedroom villa. It's a 1 minute walk from Hollywood Beach, which is a lengthy boardwalk along a beautiful beach. Very clean and comfortable. Easy to find along Ocean Blvd. I had a full kitchen & dining area, which was very nice for my morning coffee. Plenty of parking either right next to the villa or across Ocean Blvd. If we needed something, we called Scott and he took care of it right away. Hollywood Beach is very close to Ft. Laurderdale and Miami so we took advantage of Groupons in the area and had massages, horseback riding, and plenty of great places to eat. I did a lot of research, and this place is definitely the most affordable in the area. I will return.

first of all, hollywood beach is a good place to base and enjoy sunny florida. odv is the best place in hollywood beach. it is a few steps from the beach, has free parking, free wifi and the location is in the middle of the broadwalk stretch, charnow park.. so cafes and shops are close by including mini markets. dock side dining is also just across the street.

but id say the most important thing is that the owners are great to deal with, the units are huge.. i got the small efficiency and its much larger than most 1 bedroom apartments. you can throw a gathering of ten people and still have some slack..

i got unit 5 which was just divine. it is on the second floor, clean, airy and cheerfully painted white and yellow. has two flat screen tv's and full kitchen.

it is charming indeed !

Room Tip: get the efficiency rooms facing outward. it is sunny and more spacious
