We enjoyed a two-night visit to this lovely property on Hollywood Beach in early August, 2013 and had a mostly lovely stay.
The rooms are outstanding: brand-new decor, spotlessly clean, modern and well-appointed. Our queen bed efficiency apartment was small but had absolutely everything you'd need for a much longer stay: a full kitchen (range, oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, sink, 2/3-size fridge/freezer, utensil and dinnerware); lovely Euro-style bath with vessel sink and a super-nice glass-tiled stand-up shower; flat-screen TV, very comfy queen bed, a nice dresser and side tables, and a marble table and two chairs. Seriously, a really super room.
Likewise, the staff is helpful, friendly and efficient. Check-in was quick and efficient, and there were no surprises between what we paid for and what we got.
The only issues to be aware of if you choose this property are these:
- Some noise is to be expected from the Florio's restaurant next door, so if your room borders on Surf Avenue, you may want to ask for one a bit further away from the broad walk
- You share common areas with other guests. This shouldn't be a problem, but was for us when some very loud, inconsiderate and obnoxious guests insisted on talking very loudly for hours on end right outside our door. This is not a knock against the management, but it can be an issue if you are unlucky enough to have rude neighbors.
- Check the settings on the AC unit before you go to bed at night. Our friends had a rough night's sleep and one of them fell ill from the over-powered AC blowing right down on you from above all night.
In all, this is an excellent property, a really nice value and an outstanding location. We plan to return on our next visit to Hollywood Beach.
