“You'll love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2009

We stayed at Tammy's (the Caroline) a couple of nights and we can't say enough about this place or Tammy. We are already trying to make plans to go back. Tammy is the sweetest lady and went above and beyond to make sure our trip was all it could be. Amazing hostess, clean rooms, walking distance from the beach and all for an unbelievable price. You won't be disappointed! You'll be wondering when you can go back again!

This was a great stay on what was our first visit to America.
Tammy was a wonderful host and made us feel welcome and at home from the minute we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a lovely few days.
The hotel was only minutes from the seafront and was equipped with everything you need for a wonderful stay.
Will certainly go again.

Tammie is a wonderful person who goes out of her way to make you feel at home. We have been staying with Tammie for over 10 years and she is like family to us. We always enjoy our stay with her. She is lots of fun and will do everything she can to ensure that you enjoy your stay at The Caroline-Ocean Beach Hotel.
The rooms are clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated and complete with a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable queen size bed, a couch, and new TV’s. Outside your door you have wicker chairs and a table. There is also a Tiki hut with another seating area, where you can enjoy the great weather and also check out the view of the inter-coastal waterway where you can watch the yachts going by. There is also a barbecue available for everyone to use if they so desire.
The location is the best. It is a 2 minute walk to the beach where you can stroll along the broadwalk. There are gift shops and a band stand where there is entertainment and even dancing. The best part is the close vicinity to restaurants. We especially enjoyed breakfast at Giorgio’s Bakery and Bistro which is a short walk from the hotel and there are also restaurants on the beach were you can go for an enjoyable breakfast with a great view of the ocean.
We can't wait until March for our vacation at The Caroline-Ocean Beach Hotel.

The Caroline has nice , clean spacious living area ..
The beds are very confortable and you could not ask for a better host then Tammy .
She is great and will do her best to make your stay a pleasant one.
It is located a 2 minute walk from the boardwalk and ocean and only a $20.00 cab ride from the airport.
This is your beat bet for the price.

We had a very good time at the Caroline in Hollywood, FL. People have been writing a lot of nice things about The Caroline and Tammy and how she makes everybody feel like at home. It is hard to add anything else. We had a chance to experience Tammie's hospitality. The place is very clean, comfortable, close to the beach and local attractions.Tammie is wonderful and I think we made a new friend.

What a wonderful stay at the Caroline! Everything you read is true! The room is well-equipped, clean, and comfy! Tammy goes out of her way....way out of her way...to make you feel very at home! Landscaping around the hotel is very nice and very well maintained. The location is perfect....right near the broadwalk and right in the heart of it all. Bike rentals just a few steps away!! We had a blast!

Tammy-we loved it and we'll be back!

God bless.....
p.s. Jacob says thank you for finding his blanket!! You're a real doll for sending it to us!!

After reading positive reviews we e-mailed Tammi for a reservation. Wow! What a great choice! A beautiful room, tastefully decorated, complete kitchen with extras, real comfortable queen bed, thick soft towels; the room was clean & fresh, new TV, complimentary bottles of spring water in the fridge.
After talking with Tammi for a couple minutes, we felt like she was a friend from childhood. My wife says 'Thank you for the Birthday Hug!" I must mention the generous effort of locating my missing cell phone battery and then sending it to me at home! "Thanks A Million!"
The Caroline-Ocean Beach Hotel is the place to be if you visit Hollywood! See you again - The folks from Alabama.
