“quick trip to the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Chose this hotel because of cost and location. It is right in the middle of broadwalk and steps from beach. Room was newly renovated and had a small kitchen. Beds were a bit firm and hot water took a few minutes to work its way up to us. Ac in the room was new and worked great. Overall the room was nice. Housekeeping is an extra fee but on a short trip, we were ok with that. Just switch out towels on the right day. Thought the tiki bar outside the hotel was real cute but not very lively. Grounds were very pretty and clean and perfectly located. We had a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: We were right above tiki bar which was loud the night of candy cane parade. Next time would choose...

I could not say a single bad thing about this place. Yes it was still under renovation during our stay but the staff was incredible and really tried to make our stay a great one. The location is perfect and the rooms are gorgeous with expensive marble and tiling all over. Brand new stainless steel appliances and just an all around modern look. It's a big difference from the other dumps you see when you walk down the Hollywood boardwalk. I honestly think that this place has restored some life into this area.

Just spent a fabulous weekend here and give the resort five stars. The hotel is beautiful and location is perfect in the center of the best Hollywood Beach has to offer. Everyone that works there is great. Highly recommend it to everyone. Will be back there often. Perfect getaway for a weekend.

Great potential because of the location, but the walls are way too thin. Heard people's conversations, television shows, and "bedroom interactions." Yes, you do spend most of your time on the beach and strolling the boardwalk, but you do eventually need to get a few hours of sleep.

Dear Guest,
Thank-you for your honest review. While staying on the beach usually implies some level of noise we would like to apologize for any disturbance this may have caused. We hope you will visit us again and work with us to find a room that suits your needs.

I just stayed here for Labor day weekend with my family and we absolutely loved it! It was only steps away from the beach and the boardwalk! The rooms are renovated, spotless, the beds are so comfortable and they even have BBQ grills for you to use as well as picnic tables. It really is a great a place to stay with your family, with your couple, or even alone! Its located in the perfect area of the boardwalk. The staff was great and we really had the most enjoyable stay!
I will definitely be returning it was absolutely amazing!

Room Tip: We rented the one room suite and it was spacious, 2 queen beds and a sofa! It even has a little balc...

A native to SFL, I grew up on the beach, both Miami and Ft. Lauderdale and it was such a pleasure to find this freshly rennovated "gem" to spend Memorial 2013 & returned for 4th of July 2013. The staff is so attentive and friendly and the owners are wonderful people. As a token of appreciation, he personally barbequed for all of his guests on the 4th of July! it was a feast. I look forward to returning for the next long weekend...

Room Tip: Book early - rooms go fast!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Get a unit closer to Hayes Street and away from Ocean for the quietest night's rest.
