I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend, my sister, and her boyfriend.
I can't think of a single bad thing to say about this hotel. I was nervous about booking it after reading some mixed reviews and since we booked for only $99 a night on travelzoo, but my experience was excellent and I would absolutely stay here again.
First, we arrived at about 11am and since check in is not until 4pm, they held our bags until a room was ready. They tagged the bags and gave us a ticket just like a coat check so I felt secure leaving my luggage with them. It was nice because we were able to hang out at the pool and walk the beach until a room was ready. They were able to let us check in by about 2pm.
There's a Walmart (not super, but with a subway) and liquor store about a 10 minute walk away and some essentials can be purchased at the 7/11 right next door. There's also Publix and Winn Dixie about about 5 blocks past the Walmart. It's a bit of a hike, but definitely doable if you need some groceries.
If you want to order pizza, I highly recommend Pizza Rustica.
Hollywood Beach is a great location in general. You're close enough to go out for the night in Miami or Fort Lauderdale, but the beach right by Crowne Plaza is nice and quiet. The Hollywood Broadwalk starts about 1.5 miles down the beach and extends quite a bit further, so I wouldn't recommend trying to walk there (we did!).
On cloudy/rainy days, we were able to still use the beautiful pool and hot tub.
The room was spacious, with a nice sized kitchenette. The sink and mirror is separate from the bathroom, which is convenient. The decor was trendy and everything seemed very new and clean.
There were no hidden fees or charges at the end of our stay.
I hope to return some day!
