“no check in lucky we saw cleaner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

already wrote a review on booking.com and the motels reply was quite interesting but first we arrived at motel could'nt park up at first as its no entry road beside the motel and had no spaces left at front so after finally parking up we got out to check in but no check in to see anybody but by chance we saw the cleaner coming out of a small office nobody else and asked her and did not know a single word of english she got on the phone to the owner and i checked in if thats what you can call it over the phone and passed back over to the cleaner and she managed to take us to our room door you could open not locked keys on table and thats it with one chair to sit on outside the walkway passed our room at the back for the both of us after a few minutes with looking found a few hairs on the sheet on the bed pillows were well you might as well as used your t shirt and folded it to use as a pillow other than that the room was ok but didn't look anything like the room i booked but the main issue was check in non existant again good job we came across the cleaner then after putting review through the owner replied with i must be in a miserable situation and hope i have a happy life well if thats not a funny reply worded safely? so please be careful if you book this place, not a good experience.

Room Tip: if you book one make sure you get the one you booked because if you want to see anyone about it well...

Thank you for staying at the Dream INN,
Thank you for taking the time to write about Us, but,
I'm a little confused....
you only booked with Us for one night, and,
On the booking.com comment ( which is open to be the public to be seen ),
you stated that the Hotel was clean ( you gave Us a score 7.5, while everything else was 2.5)
and you complained about the area....about Hollywood beach to be......quote:
" restaurants and area itself terrible ".
I wonder.....when do the hotel got dirty ???
Did it happened , after you got home ???
the Tripadvisor review is totally different from the booking.com review.
Are you talking about the same Hotel ????
About the parking, We have, front and side parking...
14 spaces and We only have 11 rooms.
We do check in guests at any time (it happened many times after 11pm),
that's why We have phone numbers posted every where is case We happened to not be there.
Thank you very much for your time, and , We hope you would have a better experience on you next trip.
Thank you
The Dream Inn Hotel

Location was really good very close to the beach so we were able to walk down the boardwalk to the various bars and cafés really nice in the evening. On the whole a nice place to stay. The room was clean and appliances were new. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Parking for us was reasonably easy with no extra charge. Complaints were that our room was at the back of the hotel It was quite small and you could hear the next door guests through a gap under the connecting door. There was a courtyard for guests to BBQ and sit however we were somewhat excluded from this area. Also although clean the bedding could have been better. Poor wifi signal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room opening into the courtyard BBQ area

My hubby and I are snowbirds so we love coming to Florida and staying on the beach with the kiddos. We passed this motel up a few years ago when we saw that it was for sale, it looked completely vacant.

When visiting last month we passed it again (since it is right on the beach) and decided to take a peek. Well, this is the perfect little motel! I am a clean freak and normally get the creeps from hotel rooms but this place was spotless and did I mention it's RIGHT ON THE BEACH? We cancelled out reservations at our current hotel and paid half the price at the Dream Inn for a much bigger room. We look forward to our trip again in a few months, room is already booked!!!
