“Great Vacation on the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

My wife and I were in town for a high school graduation. We stayed at the Riptide Hotel and could not have had a better time. This hotel is right on the Hollywood Board walk and the beach and our room looked directly at the ocean. We had a great time at the Tiki Bar and met many regulars that visited the Tiki Bar and live in the area. The staff at the hotel and Tiki Bar were exceptional, especially Carly who is one of the bartenders at the Tiki Bar. This is a great beach hotel but if you are looking for rooms and amenities of a five star hotel you would be disappointed. This hotel is a great place to stay if you love the beach and the ability to be on the boardwalk and walk to all the bars and restaurants that are there. We had a great time and look forward to returning very soon.

Room Tip: any of these rooms are located right around the Tiki Bar which has live music through out the day to...

We stayed at the Riptide Hotel for our honeymoon. It was absolutely fabulous. The rooms were clean, the staff was excellent and friendly, the bartenders at the Tiki Bar were exceptional. It was a great experience and my new husband and I will return very soon. Thank you for a great time!

We live in Tamarac, Fl, about 20 miles west of Hollywood Beach and were looking for a nice, clean place on the beach to spend the weekend. We found it! The Riptide was all we were looking for and more. Helpful, smiling people eager to make sure everything was perfect, good music at there tiki bar, and a laid back atmosphere. Hollywood Beach is a South Florida treasure and the Riptide is a great place to enjoy it.

Room Tip: we were in room 22 and the ocean is right out front but I think all the rooms have a good view.

Didn't have reservations and didn't know where to stay - first place we actually stopped at. Luck was on our side. The staff was excellent, helpful and friendly. The motel is older but very clean, just steps from the beach and right on the broadwalk with shops and restaurants . The motel has a tiki bar and is frequented by the locals. Everyone was friendly - entertainment every night. Will definitely go back.

I stayed at the Riptide Hotel on Hollywood Beach in March 2012 with 3 of my College friends. We had an amazing time! The rooms are beautiful, clean, have very comfortable beds, and have a full kitchen. We had a beautiful view of the ocean right from our hotel window. They have a tiki bar with daily and nightly entertainment, that is very good! The staff is incredibly friendly and accomodating! We cant wait to stay there again!!!
