It's cheap and it's literally 20 feet from the beach. It's also on the Hollywood broadwalk, and we ate dinner at one of the dozens of restaurants within a short walk, sitting outside facing the beach. This was a great stay for the night before our cruise.
We were looking for a clean room with two beds, a shower, and air conditioning right on the beach, and the hotel delivered. It even had a working TV. We weren't planning to use it, but did.
It's a no-frills place, though, so if you want high-end pillows (ours were foam), a pool, restaurant, room service, and high-end furnishings, look elsewhere. Just be prepared to be pay MUCH more.
We did have a couple of problems related to the ongoing renovations: the AC didn't initially work, but someone came within two minutes and fixed it. Also, the elevator didn't work one time, but did work all the other times. It's only 3 floors, but if it's critical you have the elevator, consider that.
I would definitely stay here again pre-cruise, and I'd bet with a renovated room, I'd easily give it 5 stars for the price.
