“Stay Anywhere but here.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Horrible experience. No hot water in the room we stayed in.. did not know until morning when we were getting ready to check out. No wi-fi unless you climb up on roof. Owners act as if they do not speak english. A huge rip off. Stay away.. I am sure it was a decent place before the current owners took over.

We stayed in Pousada Suites for a holiday period, we made reservation one week prior and for that reason all other places were already booked. The place was packed with a tourists from Canada and it seemed like it wasn't there first time there. So I guess may be other rooms are decent, but ours was a disaster. I don't even know what to start with. None of the windows are opening, the door lock is very very old and it seemed like anybody can easily break into the suite, we had some problems with opening and closing it. The bed was great: king-size mattress, but other furniture was old and outdated. Big dresser missing few handles, toilet makes an awful sound when flesh for a good 3 minutes, kitchen cabinets are in a very poor condition. Small kitchen fitted cabinets, big fridge, oven and table and 2 chairs. I understand that the owner doesn't want to invest into updating old furniture, but it doesn't take a lot to keep the place clean. I wiped the table 2 times and it was still dirty and sticky; also found few short black hair on the side of the table and in one of cabinets, next to cups and plates - gross. The only one pro is the proximity to the beach. But any motel/inn on Hollywood beach is close to the shore line. So don't do the same mistake, try to call few places, it seemed like most of other inns are in a better condition than Pousada suites. I'm not a picky traveler, but I never stayed in a such a poorly maintained place, any motel 6 or best inn is 3 times better for what we've got for $130 a night.
Pros: quick walk to the beach; king size bed; nice crowed, mostly families from Canada; tiled floor
Cons: Dirty room and kitchen equipment; outdated furniture; way overpriced for what have been provided

Stayed at this place for the first time it was a great place and the rooms are HUGE the people that run it are very friendly. This place feels like your out little apartment and is fully stocked with everything g you could possibly need. Was not the cleanest but was not dirty location can't be beat steps to Beach and the price was AMAZING. Would definitely stay again! #Hope this helps someone.

The #1 asset of this motel is its proximity to the beach which is just one block away.
The room was quite large and included cable TV and a kitchen. Bedroom and bathroom were clean but kitchen could have been a little cleaner. Ok, if you are a nitpicker you rather should stay in the Marriott 2 blocks away, but for $70 this was a good deal and I was happy with it.
Never used the pool or their BBQ area.
Indian manager couple (as in most American motels) was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms close to the parking lot and BBQ area can be noisy.

We've stayed here for 10 day stays since 2008. The new owners try very hard to make everyone comfortable; their English isn't perfect but they are very polite. We chose to overlook the mis-matched decor and less than ideal maintenance for it's proximity to the ocean - you can view it from the shared terrace on the upper floor. With the $$ we saved we ate out every night. The stove and refrigerator were clean and I was happy to make my own beds. No valet, no parking fee. It's a little oasis 2 short blocks from the famous Broadwalk and pristine beach.

Room Tip: There is one room on the upper floor that faces the ocean - at XMAS it's never available but ask...

Let's begin with that they don't clean the pool i found two band aids and a lot of hair the pool; only gets cleaned partially once a week , the manager/owner of the hotel is very rude and acts like a hypochondriac over the pool and the surrounding deck. Sadly they also don't speak english and have attitude issues with certain guest. I saw him pop a little kids beach ball and yank a toy out of the same child's mouth. Hopefully, this is helpful

Room Tip: just choose another hotel
