My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay at the Riptide. Upon check-in, we knew we were going to enjoy our stay. Our first floor oceanfront room was very clean and bright. The bathroom was rather small, but also clean with nice big bath towels and toiletries. The kitchenette had everything you would need for your stay. The housekeeping staff works very hard and always had our room clean with fresh towels, first thing in the morning.
The Tiki Bar is a great place to get a drink and relax, listening to live music, one during the day and another at night. The barmaids were super friendly and always had kind words for you.
The best part of our stay was the beautiful beach that was 39 steps from our hotel door!
The hotel supplies bikes, beach chairs, beach towels, and even suntan lotion! We felt spoiled. This hotel, along with most of the Hollywood hotels are small, family owned hotels. If you want the big, high-rise with no personality, then you'll want to check into the Marriott down the street, but if your looking for a clean, fun, with lots of extras, than stay at the Riptide. We definately will be returning!
