Wow clean ,friendly, steps from the beach, free parking. The renovations are amazing the rooms
Are very modern, overall a great place to stay. The staff went out of there way to make sure you felt right at home. You don't need a pool since your steps away from the beach.

We booked last-minute, blindly searching hotels/motels on Hollywood beach. Marie-Helene was very helpful and accommodating, answering all of my questions and giving me a few pricing options in a friendly manner.

The room far exceeded our expectations—it was beautifully renovated with a full kitchen; stove, full size fridge, dishes in the cabinets. Bed and futon in the front room and a separate room with a queen bed; 1 1/2 baths; and a patio with another full size fridge!

This is the perfect spot to have a pleasant beach getaway. The tiki bar on property is a great bonus, as well as an on-site washer dryer.

Room Tip: The second floor room in the corner is the best!

great location; clean, clean, clean; great staff and awesome service! walk to everything! the place is within 50 feet of the beach; restaurants; shops; markets; bike rentals; etc. the hollywood beach theater is half block away and usually has free concerts for all on friday and saturday nights with ample seating and lots of fun and dancing under the stars. bars all over the boardwalk and so is security. great fun place to watch sports, have dinner, take a dip in the beach.

My son and I stayed for Easter Weekend and all was great. Friendly staff, very clean rooms, Tiki bar and several restaurants close by just in case you decide not to cook in your kitchen or on a grill located just outside your door in the court yard. The resort is just a few steps away from the beach and located right behind a great restaurant. Ask for the morning server "Tina" is her name and she is pleasant and loves to talk! I would recommend to all and look forward to returning soon! Thank you Boris for a great stay.

i stayed here 05/10/2013--- 05/12/13.. first impression was very nice front desk manager,helpful and makes you feel welcome and makes sure your accomadations are acceptable.i believe here name is anabella.short,spanish accent and pretty.....the room #128 was very clean and comfortable.shower and bathroom looked new and the kitchen area looked excellant,especially if you plan on cooking.i was on vacation so whats the point of cooking?the caribbean was one street off the boardwalk and directly across a great restaurant where having breakfast was simple and delicious.food was modestly priced and worth it....they have a tikki bar at the caribbean but at $2.50 for a mug of beer,i found cheaper alternatives along the boardwalk.a great bar and restaurant is called la tub for the best burgers. a family their stayed up until past 2am on sunday morning drinking and talking loud but i sent them a message and they realized how late it was and turned in,thank god....yes i would stay there again

Room Tip: bring suntan lotion and ipod because the beach there is great

The resort was recently remodeled and was very clean and welcoming. Some small touches missing such as hooks to hang towels, robes, bathing suits etc. Showers could use some type of shelving to put shampoo, soap, etc. on. However, if you did need anything or thought of something you needed they were very quick to respond and give you what you needed. Great distance to beach and park for small kids. I've been going to Hollywood Beach for many years and this was my favorite spot so far!!!

Room Tip: We had the room with one bedroom and a bed and pull out in the living room. The room was awesome, ho...

We were looking for a place to stay near or on the beach and stumbled across this property. We weren't familiar with this area of Florida so I called ahead to get some information about distance to beach and activities to do around the resort. It was some of the best resort/hotel service that I have ever had BEFORE I even reserved a room: Friendly, helpful, and welcoming. We decided to reserve a room and asked what room was suggested for view and space. Again, extremely helpful service. Upon arrival we were welcomed with a bottle of champaign and a card expressing well wishes for our Anniversary! (Very unexpected and very thoughtful)

Though we were hoping to find a place right on the beach, I'm glad that we stayed here. Staying right on the board walk would have been loud at night (and in the morning- there was a fitness expo on the board walk that started blasting music at 8am!). This was the perfect property to get only 20 yards off the beaten path and yet so easy to get to the beach.

The rooms were nice, small but nice. Nice updates and a great little apartment kitchen (had pots/pans/plates/glasses/silverware/microwave/toaster/stove & small oven) Perfect for two people.

The outdoor seating areas on the property are beautiful and well placed. Plenty of shade for relaxation. And on the day before we left, we found out that the front desk has games that you can check out and play!

Overall, this is a great site close to the beach and yet a little bit off the main boardwalk so you are not hearing noise all night. Nicely done rooms, great customer service, great places to eat all around, and a trolley (costs $1 per rider/one way) that stops a block a way to get you to a grocery store or other places to eat in downtown Hollywood.

We loved this place and are already planning on returning with the kids!
