We just got back from there.They shouldn t of rented the room to us as the whole place was under construction.Not much hot water even after a long wait, no WI Fi and not much good tv.There are many other small places with bigger rooms and less expensive all along the boardwalk.The work has been going on for months there were only 3 rooms refinished when we arrived in december(Frank???). The staff tried hard but it was a desaster. Forget pet friendly you can t do anything with a dog in Hollywood..

What a pleasant suprise when we found this fantastic Old Florida hotel is under new management & is being totally remodeled with all new windows, centeral A/C, new enlarged bathrooms, kitchens and beautiful interiors including beddings & furnature. We got to stay in one of the new rooms with an ocen view from the bed room and a view of their new Tiki bar from the front balcony.
The new owner was very accomodating and so was his staff who we both pleasant and helpful when ever we approached them for anything we needed.
Thanks Caribbean Resort; we'll be back soon.

Room Tip: Call in advance. This place sells out quickly but all the rooms are NEW!

I will not stay here again. We encountered so many bugs, of all kinds in our room. I know we are in South Florida, but come on! There were more bugs in our room than in our tent when we go camping! We even woke up with bugs on us while sleeping. It was really gross.

I spent my summer this year at the hotel. Boris and his family were delightful. All of the rooms are being totally renovated and this is going to be one of those hidden gems as the rooms have the latest windows, quiet AC's, great bathrooms with tremendous water pressure and it is just steps from the sand and ocean. All of the furniture is going to be new. I loved the place, the owners, staff and people who stayed here. It was a very special summer for me and I will be back to stay. Do yourself a favor and put this on your short list of hotels as this little 40's hotel is what Hollywood Beach is all about. You will not regret it.

Room Tip: There is no pool.

This was our first time at this hotel! The new management made us all feel at home. Boris and his crew were very accommodating to our needs. The hotel is having a do-over and the new rooms look like we are in South Miami Beach.
Thank you, we will definately go back.

Room Tip: Ask for the newly renovated ones.

The front desk dictator/totalitarian goes by the name of Susan if she does not like you (and she won't if god forbid you need a room with quieter AC) you will not be getting any smiles from her and in my case a look in my eyes. We had 20 people spread out over 4 rooms. She simply does not care to be there and judging from my experience she may either be part owner there or be working there out of absolute necessity. She does not like being there and she will be sure to show it. Debbie Diamond the owner seemed willing to work with me but was unable to return the three days of my life wasted there. the building dates back to the early 50's and I kid you not when I say they are of the philosophy that "if it ain't broke don't fix it" the rooms show it the bathrooms were tiled by a 13 year old ten years ago and the mildew is evident. if you only need a place to sleep this will do but I later found that the other motel on Hayes street is the same price and far better cared for. Also on the boardwalk! if anyone needs additional discouragement please feel free to email me at

Great, wonderful, comforting and soooo much more this place is to me. I am a local and try to stay here whenever I get the chance. I have experienced several different rooms, and all have there own special touch. from the effencies to the one bedroom to the friendly staff. My grandmother loves comming here she can enjoy herself just sitting in the beautiful court yard. I highly recommend the carribean resort. to all whether local or out of town this is one place you will love.
