“Great Time at Diane's Motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We just came back from celebrating New Years Eve in Hollywood Fl. We stayed at the Diane Motel. It was a great place to stay. It was clean. It is right on the Boardwalk. The view is terrific. The staff was very friendly. The room was roomy and had a little kitchenette. We had a wonderful time. This is a very nice motel to stay in. We will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Top floors have a balcony. FIrst floor rooms are good too, but the second floor gives a better view.

Ok so lets set the expectation. This is NOT a 5 star hotel/motel BUT my goodness is it in the best location! The owners are very nice and the rooms are equipped with 2 beds and a full kitchen - stove, refrigerator, & microwave. This is great for a getaway with family (especially with kids). Hollywood Beach has changed so much...There is a food market, a theater that has bands playing music, ice cream shops, restaurants and of course the GORGEOUS beach in front of you. You arrive at the Diane and you don't have to drive ANYWHERE because everything is walking distance and I don't mean 3 miles, I mean 20 - 100 steps...BEAT THAT!

The ONLY nice thing about this motel is its  location just steps from the Atlantic's warm calm waters and people watching. It's a hit or miss on the company you'll keep while lounging on its patio. There is no room service (unless you hound the office staff) the rooms are dated, narrow, dark and grossly overpriced for this 1970's joint.

Stayed June 2012

It's really a shame, with all of the hurricanes in Florida, this place gets spared. I actually laugh when I read the positive reviews of this place. In my travels, I have easily spent 5000 nights in 4000 different hotels across the world and this one has the distinct honor of being the worst of the worst. Hidden charges, rooms that look like they were used on "The Honeymooners" and have not been updated since. I am guessing that is where the positive ratings comefrom; either shills or people who are stuck in the 50's and like sheets stuck together.
The location is great, so all we can do is pray for a hurricane.

Room Tip: Just avoid this place. I would contact the folks writing positive reviews to validate their stay.

Great location with good view of ocean and people on Broadwalk promenade. But towels are small white crackers. No drinking glases in room and cable service was cut off to TV. WiFi password wasn't offered and their service truck was in my assigned parking slot. The staff was surly and unpleasant. However second floor outdoor veranda seating on the ocean side made for a better time of it.

rude management. misleading pictures of the room on the Internet. Dirty. Shower didn't have any water pressure. Had to move my car 3 times because of their parking issues. Only stayed 1 out of the 3 nights we paid for it was so nasty and uncomfortable. We live locally and wanted to stay on the beach for the 4th of July. Expensive lesson to learn. If Mgt is unwilling to show you a room before you book... Run!!!
