“Hollywood Beach Suites is a HIDDEN JEWEL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Alright well here's the deal. We stayed at this place about a week ago, right before spring break, thinking here's another one of those hotels on the beach. Well this was just much much more than that. I've got to say for just randomly stopping in for the night, we had a better time here than most resorts I've been to. We were in town for UMF ( Ultra Music Festival ) for those of you who don't know, and we got stuck without a hotel due to an overbooking issue. So we hopelessly looked around to see if we could find anything and we found this place. At first we weren't expecting much but man was I wrong. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly and helpful, and to top it all off they have their own taco restaurant. ( AMAZING FISH TACOS BTW ) I couldn't believe it. Place was siiiiick !!!! There was beach chairs, bikes, umbrellas, even surf boards ( just nothing to surf lol ! ). All of that stuff was up for grabs while we stayed there and boy did we abuse it lol. I think the staff even got a laugh at how dumb we looked everytime we found out something new. We must of ate tacos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for 3 days straight. They also give you these free drink cards as long as you eat there. This sounds more like a story than an actual review. Don't let anyone turn you away, this place is a must. Very very relaxing, clean, chill, and the people staying here just seem to be all around nicer than everywhere else. If you're looking for a vacation spot this place is it, bring your friends, family, even bring your dog !!!!!

Room Tip: Any room is good, but we were here to party so anything would of been okay.

Great management, excellent prices, perfect location! The 2 peas in a pod rooms are approx, 14x16 and have small but adequate bathrooms with showers only. Each room is equipped with a microwave & mini fridge, some also have a small dining spot for 2 ensuite. Love this place! The taco shack is around the corner....everything there is very tasty. Try the Korean short ribs...mouth-watering!

Room Tip: A3 is a lovely room for 2.

I just got back from this hotel and I can't wait to go back. This was my third stay since Nov,

and the location is outstanding. The housekeeping staff does a white glove job and the

manager Pamela Garcia checks each room before she allows it to be available, The colors are

bright and the A/C is outstanding. Try the Taco Shack in front of the hotel. Fun place and

great food. ron leary (reinaldo) salem ma

We loved the accomodations, as our room had a kitchenette, good sized bathroom, private bedroom, and a living room with bunk beds in one corner, making it a perfect spot for several friends to rest and relax...
The freebies were numerous! We loved the free bike rental, free internet, free beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc.
We rode the trolley downtown for $1 and loved the atmosphere at night.
A perfect place to stay on a budget. We only wished they had a pool, but the beach was literally steps away!
Also, the broadwalk is a fun place to walk, skate or ride a bike!

Room Tip: E4 was a great room, with a large flat sceen TV and picnic tables out front.

Angelbod,

It is great to hear you enjoyed all of our "Freebies". The boardwalk is an amazing place to be all year around with our 80 degree weather. If you return to South Florida and would like a pool please visit our website for our sister properties with pools. We hope to see you soon.

My wife and I are 59 and 60 respectively. Just the two of us stayed in the 2 peas and pod room for five days. The room is not large but it was clean and nicely decorated. We felt safe at this location and really appreciated its closeness to the beach. The staff was very nice and responsive and Elaine in the office is a Jennifer Lopez look alike. The Taco Shack was really good. We are going back next year and will definitely stay there. Great location. Great price.

We spent a week at Disney then drove to FLL to catch our flight home the next morning. We were just looking to stay one night and wanted something a little on the cheaper side. We didn't have high expectations so that helped when we got there. We are a family of 6 so we reserved a family suite that had 2 sets of bunkbeds. One of the bottom bunks was right up against the air conditioner so one of the kids could not sleep there. Luckily there was a couch (kind of a bench,soft) that my son slept on. The inside looked clean for being an older unit. The bathroom was horribly small w/ no counter space at all. The beds had one flat pillow per person. You got one sheet and a very thin blanket. We too were the unit right next to the band. It made for a very long night. All you could hear was the loud viberations through the wall. It took a while but the kids all finally fell asleep. As with previous reviews I don't understand why they would put families right outside the "action"

The best thing about the place was all the "freebies" they had! We were able to use beach towels, boogie boards and beach chairs for no cost! They also had sand toys for the kids which we didn't know about so we bought new ones b/f we got there. (We did leave them there for the next kids though!) They have a small library of books which I didn't take advantage of but what a good idea! I did like the chairs and tables outside our units also. We didn't use them but I can see how someone would!

Great walking distance to the ocean & awesome little boardwalk that we really enjoyed!

Not 100% sure we would return but I will not rule it out completely.

Room Tip: Stay away from the taco bar! Bands at night and very, very loud. Walls are very thin!

I stayed here for a couple nights because I was missing the youth hostel traveling experience. I wanted to meet cool people from around the world to go out and party with like most hostels facilitate. I thought this would be a perfect fit because I could get a private room (2 peas in a pod) for my fiance and me and still get the experience of a youth hostel. Unfortunately the Youth hostel vibe and set up is super lame. There's no real comfortable lounge area or bar or just hangout area. We hardly saw people there and when we did it wasn't in a meet and greet situation. I was pretty bummed.

The room was decent enough at first glance. It wasn't a bad room by any means but after a while a lot of little inconveniences add up. If it was just one or two things that bothered us it wouldn't have been a big deal but it was way to many annoyances.

1.)The walls are paper thin, I'm not exaggerating. It was super awkward hearing every word of our neighbors conversations and knowing that they could hear us just as well. It's also annoying at night when you're trying to sleep and people are just getting to their room shutting doors, talking and watching TV.
2.) The bed had a few stray hairs that weren't from us. Not too annoying buy something you notice.
3.) The shower was terrible! the temp was always scalding hot or freezing cold. It would keep swinging hot and cold back and forth never finding a comfortable middle. The shower was such a pain in the butt.
4.) The bed was hard as a rock. really uncomfortable.
5.) The on demand hot water heater was in our bathroom and also service the surrounding bathrooms. In middle of the night when anyone was using hot water it would light off and start making all sorts of loud noises.
6.) No internet in the room ..... come on
7.) The blinds next to our bed did not block out the whole window. People walking right by our bed side window could see right into us. It felt like we had know privacy and our window was right next to a well traveled pathway so we saw a lot of traffic.

I'm not trying to be prissy but staying here was not fun like I hoped it would be. The only good thing I can say about this place is that the staff was really nice and helpful.
