A family member recommended the hotel after having a positive experience here, and I'm glad we gave it a try! We stayed in the corner room closest to the boardwalk, which had a great little patio and chairs outside looking directly onto the boardwalk. When we first pulled up, i LOVED the retro charm of the exterior to the apartments, as well as the beachy and cozy apartment decor inside the rooms -- which I think it much more fun and cool than a cookie cutter mass-chain hotel. Kitchen has the bare necessities, and everything worked well.
My mom stayed in the bedroom which she said was comfortable, while I slept on the pull-out couch in the living area. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because the pull-out couch was pretty rough - would have been more comfortable to sleep on it as a couch and not even pulling out the bed part.
Otherwise overall great little set-up and very cool and retro vibe which I think is the perfect complement to the charm of visiting Hollywood Beach to begin with.
