“Big but old”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We were here for 3 days. My sister is a hotel snob and was appalled. The elevator was dirty. The room had a lot of square feet - a bathroom, kitchen, table and couch in the first room. The couch was stained and the bathroom light switch was very dirty. The bedroom had a lot of closet space, drawers and another bathroom. Huge windows with decent curtains. Since this is a condo type place they don't clean your room but will bring towels. To use the exercise room you have to sign out a key and return it. 3-4 machines. A decent lobby on the first floor with a game room and doors to the pool. The pool was FULL of kids. It was just okay if you aren't used to westin or marriot. Good Thai/Japanese restaurant very close and good location a hop from the boardwalk.

Room Tip: Take your own shampoo and some bleach.

The hotel is situated right on the hollywood beach. Great for getting up early and seeing the sun rise or just taking a jog along the boardwalk. The pool area was nice and private. There are restaurants, entertainment and shops along the beach walkway. Check in was fast and the staff were very nice and friendly. On the negative side, these are timeshares and the apartment we stayed in was not the cleanest. Upon entering the room, we were hit with a strange smell. The run in the bedroom had a big stain and didn't feel clean. The kitchen wasn't the cleanest and did not feel comfortable using their plates and utensils...bought paper plates and plastic. The humidity in the room was high to the point where the pages in my book warped....but the view facing the ocean was great!

Room Tip: Request ocean view....otherwise you might get stuck facing the garage wall.

We stayed @ the hollywood beach hotel on the 4th of July we had 2 adults and 3 children. Traffic was horrible for the parking garage next door and the security guard moved us right through to the free parking in the hotel garage. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment ocean side that had terrific views. The apartment was spotless and I usually don't like to book over the phone but this is an exceptional hotel with exceptional staff. We will definitely stay here again when we head back to hollywood later this summer.

Room Tip: We stayed ocean side in room 1108 and it was terrific!!!

Booked through timeshare swop. Even though we arrived day late, there were problems with checking in - the room we were initially allocated hadn't been cleaned with stains on the counter and trash left in the room. We were then given another room which was cleaner, but still felt/looked grubby. Being Memorial weekend, we stayed one night and left to stay in a hotel at additional cost of $600. We recommend you don't go here...

Booked ocean view online. Spent 20 minutes arguing with hotel on arrival. They had me in a different room and wanted to charge me more for the ocean view plus penalties for changing booking! Two bathrooms, but one bar of soap. Kitchen had pots and plates but no cutlery, so had to eat with fingers. At 10 pm, pulled out sofa bed. (None of the rooms have 2 beds and I was there with my mother). No mattress on sofa bed! Just bars and springs. Who rents a room like this to guests? Front desk (terribly rude and aggressive) said maintenance staff had gone for the day! Nothing they could do! Maybe later, when security arrived, they might be able to find one, but it would be a lot of trouble for them. Staff were actually shouting at me and not letting me finish a single sentence. Room was prepaid. Manager did not return any messages left the following week. Decided to check out at midnight and went elsewhere. You have to arrange for things to go wrong when maintenance staff are on duty, I guess. This place is clueless on how to treat guests. Ruined the whole trip. Stay elsewhere!
