“Week Long Stay in January”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I stayed in the Villas to recover from a major surgery in Florida. I originally booked a hotel which ended up being a disaster. I called the Villas, and was able to get a great room. Four of us stayed, and the property manager was amazing. The room was very clean, and the amenities were great. The price was great as well. I highly recommend the Villas.

We wanted to stay somewhere different prior to a cruise than the typical chain hotel. The manager (I think) was very nice when booking and easy to work with. Well, the idea of staying at a quaint hotel didn't work out so well. We arrived on a late flight and after entering the room we just about couldn't stand the smell. Even after leaving the door open for an extended period of time it didn't get any better. But since it was late we stuck it out until the morning with very little sleep due to the smell. Then the morning shower! Tiles in shower have been painted and are peeling (who paints tile?) and the worst part was the mold on the ceiling and in the grout. No wonder as there is no vent that we could see in the bathroom so it just gets soaked from the humidity. On top of that the bedspread had rips in it and the bed was the most uncomfortable mattress that I have ever slept on. My son's college mattress was a higher quality than this one. We had originally booked the room for three nights but checked out the next morning and didn't really care about losing the second nights charge-we just wanted out of there. I was told that the third night would be credited. Too bad becuase the location of the hotel is good and close to the boardwalk along the beach.

We stayed at this property for nine nights in October and must say one of our best vacations ever!! Hollywood Beach offers so much to really just about anyone, young, senior - active or lazy and staying at Ocean Drive Villas literally puts you smack dab in the middle!!
The rooms were clean, updated fixtures and tv, parking and wifi included. I would say that the mattress could have been a bit more comfortable but after nine nights we made our own dents :)
Scott and staff were great - there when we needed them and really just started out our stay with the "take in easy" attitude that we so desperately needed!
Look forward to our next stay and would recommend this property to anyone that doesn't need egyptian cotton sheets! We will miss our morning coffee on the boardwalk watching the sunrise!

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...
