excellent service and amenities. The rooms were clean and the proximity to the beach a definite benefit.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2010

Upon arrival I was prepared to be disappointed. This is more of a motel than a hotel. I live closeby, but rented here for the 4th of July weekend for a quick getaway. It was very difficult to get in touch with the staff when I called ahead to confirm my reservation and ask a few questions about the room (as a matter of fact nobody ever answers the phone), but the lady at the desk at check in was very friendly. This hotel/motel is merely STEPS from the beach and my room was on the end of the building and had a slight view of the beach. This "resort" is located on the north end of the beach, which I particularly like because you are away from the local crowds. The locals and guests on this end of the beach are very friendly, beachy people. There were grills in well kept courtyard and everything was neat. The room itself was ordinary, but the fact that it had a full sized refrigerator, kitchenette sink, coffee maker and microwave made up for this. The room was clean and the hotel provides extra kitchen utensils and cooking supplies in case you forgot anything. This "resort" could use an upgrade. The beds are not very comfortable and the air conditioner is very loud. My room was at the end and the way the door opens out onto the landing is a very precarious situation; too many drinks and down the stairs you will land. It is very quiet on this end of the beach and the courtyard with the grills is a great touch. The landscaping is well taken care of and the grass is well kept. This place is great for a quick getaway to the beach, but I would do some major upgrades. New beds are needed as well as linens and it is time to upgrade to different types of TVs because the small one on the wall up near the ceiling was difficult to see and hear(it rained so we were inside for a while). New and more quiet air conditioners are now sold and I would suggest getting to that immediately because after a long day at the beach one likes to fall asleep quietly and these are LOUD. I would stay here again for a quick weekend because it was clean and had everything we needed, but it would not be my first choice for more than 2 days.

The Waves Apartment is located only a few steps away from the beach that is never crowded, even not at the weekends! The rooms were clean and the kitchen equipped with the most important things for a short-term stay. Arriving after business hours is no problem, because the hotel owners leave the key for the apartment in an envelope next to the office desk.
The only disadvantage is that it's necessary to have a car, because there were no shops or restaurants within walking distance.
I really recommend this hotel everybody who is searching for a cheap apartment close to the beach!

The Hotel is in a great location and staff are great."
My husband, 19 yr old daughter, 15 and 10 yr old son and I stayed here over the weekend of father's day The location could not be better, a few steps to the beach! The view from our room was amazing! We could see the ocean from our room.
Our room was clean and we had everything that we need.

The broadwalk is perfect for people watching, morning walking, roller-blading, biking, etc., and has excellent lunch options such as pizza, gyros, ice cream, etc. Were some volleyball nets up along beach. . Restaurant has indoor/outdoor seating with a bar outside with live entertainment. For dinner we headed to Hollywood Blvd, tons of restaurants and bars. Visited the Seminole Hard Rock casino, and that plaza also has nice restaurants/shops with a little lake in the middle.

This is a great hotel. Cleanliness is my biggest concern and the room was very clean, quiet and conveniently located near a major highway. The beach is literally a few steps away. The room contained a full size refrigerator and microwave. It was much better than I expected for a value-priced hotel.

I was happy with the room the for the price. The only down fall was that there was no coffee maker in the room. We also almost ran out of toliet paper no back up.
