“A Real Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Let me start by saying that I had fairly limited expectations. We had to fly into FLL on the Saturday Morning after Thanksgiving, but since we are big College Football fans, and that is a huge College Football day, we just wanted a place near the beach, where we could spend the day and evening watching college football. We weren't picking up our rental car to drive to the Keys until the next morning, so we took a cab to the hotel.

We arrived about Noon, and our room was ready. The room was considerably less than I expected but we dropped our stuff and turned on the TV - it appeared to be satelite, but we couldn't get any channels to come in. Back down to the desk, the guy said that someone checking out mentioned there was some kind of problem and he would call the cable company. In the lobby he had something from Netflix playing. This should have been a hint.

We told him that we really wanted to watch football and we'd go get some lunch and come back. We returned a couple of hours later and he said that the cable company wouldn't be out until Monday. I had prepaid through Hotels.com, so I requested my money back. He said I would have to talk to "Her" on Monday and gave me a phone number to call.

We gathered up our stuff and started walking, to find another hotel. Fortunately, we found Grenier's on the Beach, right next door closer to the beach. It was a much nicer room, had a good sized TV with cable and was pretty much everything we wanted for roughly the same price.

On Monday, I started calling the number I had been given. I left several messages, but never got any response. I finally called Hotels.com and they gave me my money back. Not how I wanted to spend time on my vacation!

All in all, a very unsatisfactory experience!

Room dirty. Tv would not work could not change channels or turn off. 2d day they changed dish remote and it would work. Office only manned between 10 am and maybe 3.. Leisure chair in room badly stained and torn. I had a 2 day res..no room check to dump garbage, change out towels..NOTHING. Only a 1/2 block from Hollywood beach boardwalk but that was the only positive. Overpriced for such poor service and quality.

Room Tip: Somewhere else. Plenty of rooms for same rate or even less..

Not sure why anyone would give this hotel a bad rating because we had a very nice time....Room was clean and comfortable. Steps away from the beach and boardwalk....all hotels in this area are like the Silver Spray...unless you want to pay $300-$400 a night at a high rise which puts you away from the quaintness of the Boardwalk. We will stay here again anytime!

The Silver Spray Motel is a great place to stay for a beach vacation. Free and ample parking is a nice perk and being one block to the beach makes for a carefree experience. If you want frills and the higher expense of other local full service hotels-then go elsewhere. This facility delivers a reasonable experience at a value price. Special thanks to the housekeeper Jenny! And free WIFI and shuffleboard too! We will come back.

Room Tip: Various sized rooms with a variety of set ups.

This is a bare bones Mom & Pop hotel. It was very clean and Romina could not be nicer. Very no frills. If you are looking for granite counters and new fixtures, this is not the place. If you are looking for a clean place to sleep within walking distance to the beach, this is your place!! The walls are very thin but this is common with older places. They also allow dogs, which is hard to find on Hollywood Beach. They had a very nice courtyard, close to everything, clean. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I stayed in room #4, which was a good room.

Good location to a lot of places. The beach was really close. We went to Gulf Stream race track which was excellent ! The room was small but very clean. The beds were okay for a couple of nites. Paper thin walls. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the street

I can't even give this place a single circle. Picture motels featured in seedy film noir movies and you have an idea of this place. Rusty sink, grit and sand on the floor, holes in the sheets, dangerous wire sticking through the wall heater in the bathroom. Two double beds, one of which sounded as though it was stuffed with straw or cellophane bags. Inflexible, impolite staff (office doesn't open until 10am, closes at 8pm) and no way to cancel our second night. We booked it at $100 through Priceline (also, never again) but found the posted rate for the room was $85. We were lucky they took $100 for it (please read with dripping sarcasm). I suppose if you were looking for a cheap room close to the beach and had no qualms about insects (we did not see any) or gritty floors, this could be a lifesaver. Personally, it wasn't what was represented. The only saving grace was that it smelled of bleach and appeared to be clean. Otherwise, ugh.

Room Tip: Find another place to stay. Prices are high in this area and all we wanted was a room for one night...
