“Renovation needed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Traveled for a family wedding and stayed four nights. When booking-be aware that this is NOT the Hollywood Beach Resort Hotel-which is a half mile further south on the Broadwalk. This is a grouping of smaller efficiencies-affordably priced and ideally suited to the younger set and families with small children. That said-you get what you pay for. The very friendly and co-operative staff did their level best to deal with some of our complaints-which related largely to the need for a complete renovation of the entire facility's rooms. The beach and broadwalk is steps away and the swimming pools are adequate for children. The free continental 'breakfast' is sparse with little eye appeal-best to eat in your room or at a reasonably priced restaurant on the broadwalk. Parking is free on the property and you will need a car to drive to nearby Dania (Jai Alai, John LLoyd State Park). The Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood airport is conveniently close by and the drive south on the AIA to South Beach in Miami will take 30-40 minutes. Fort Lauderdale and the attractions on Las Olas boulevard are 15 minutes north on US 1.

This room was at a great price, so we decided to stay the weekend, however, we had to leave early because it was just so disgusting. You could smell AND see the mold growing on the walls. We asked for the room to be cleaned and when we got back in the evening after spending the entire day on the beach, it was still not attended to. Plus, the other people that were staying there were disgusting and inconsiderate. The beach was so nice and I was so disappointed that we ended up leaving early from our vacation because we could not bear to sleep there another night.
Advice to everyone, pay a little bit more and stay at a quality hotel on the beach.. this one certainly is not it.

The staff, especially the manager, at this hotel don't care at all about their customers. The place is disgusting and dirty. They they'll also hit you up for additional charges that they don't disclose first. The rooms aren't cleaned ever.

Our stay was really nice . The room was very clean and had all we needed for are family to stay . We had two large beds ,love the small kitchen this helps alot on eating out cost. It was nice to be able to choose from the three pools they have . It's a block away from the beach so there is plenty to do. We will be back to stay

If you want a simple, no amenities room near the beach, this is the room for you.

Bring your own towels.
Also, it needs an update and def lacks amenities but we used it to stay one night and travel early in the morning.
It worked for that.

The staff is extremely helpful and they do what it takes to accommodate you. The location was great as well. The room was nice and clean. There are a lot of bars on the boardwalk and also places too eat.
