“Excellent place for family and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We stayed at the sunshine for 3 weeks when we moved down to Florida from Canada. It was perfect to be so close to the beach and we had the 1 bedroom apartment which was plenty of room for our little family. They made us feel at home and when we actually found a new home it was though to leave this little peice of paradise. There's a park within walking distance for the kids. Two restaurants that you can walk to as well. Very quiet spot on the beach that isn't covered in tourists. Very friendly neighbourhood and safe. The price was perfect and in our budget. I highly recommend the sunshine as a perfect vacation designation.

Room Tip: If you have kids it's nice to stay in the 1 bedroom apartment because you have that little bit o...

We had a fantastic time at The Sunshine Motel. Why? It is a 60 second walk to one of the finest and least congested beaches in the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood area. The room was completely furnished with stove, oven , refrigerator with freezer area, cooking utensils and everything you need to live in the unit. A/C worked like a charm and there were beach chairs for the beach and a picnic table next to the bar-b-q. The rates cannot be beat and the owner John is living right next door to you in unit 3 (?..the number). It is right out of the 1960's for the decor which pleased us no end. He has many return sunshine seekers and we all know the reason why. It is great to be there. There are restaurants close by and a boardwalk that extends for 1-2 miles down the beach. Enjoy people; we are ready to come back

There really is no place like Hollywood Beach in Florida, where they have done a wonderful job of allowing the quality of the old beach streets to preserve without the crushing updating that the glut of high rise condominiums brings about. Nestled on one of the quietest, secluded streets in the northernmost part of North Hollywood Beach is a little gem of a motel called Sunshine Motel. It is very clean, quiet and updated, and has all the charm of an old 1950's motel. It is situated on absolutely a gem of a street only 150 feet from an almost secluded beach. There is no outside parking allowed, except for motel residents, so the streets are without traffic and void of almost any outside disturbances. There is even a beach shower and a shaded bench for sitting on the edge of the beach. From the Sunshine Motel you can jog, bike, or walk the close to 7 miles of undisturbed, traffic free paths which run right along the beach. Very special place, with a great owner, John and his family, who live on the property. Everything is provided, along with probably the best rates of any motel in the area. A great value in an absolutely great location.

Room Tip: The studios are the best bargain in town!

It has been a total pleasure and delight to stay here. The studio felt like a very comfortable second home with a full kitchen and all the amenities. Steps from a beautiful, quiet beach. John, the owner/mgr. is a perfect and most welcoming host. The units are spotless and well decorated. A great place for a vacation and unwind from the world. Truly a gem that I will come back to again and recommend to friends.

I stayed in the hotel with my family for a week. We definitelly enjoyed our stay a lot. The location is perfect if you plan to relax, a few meters from beatiful beaches, and the hollywood restaurants are 1 or 2 miles away. The price is also really good, you get a very confortable studio with a full kitchen. We will come back to this place in the future for sure.

Small, well kept, amazing beach location, a slice of old Florida located within a quiet area of N Hollywood Beach. Owner/manager John is the quintessential host who adds tons to the experience. Units are spotless, beautifully decorated, with tiled and terazzo floors, artwork, and full bookcases in every room. World famous Hollywood Beach, but the quieter North end, complete with a county lifeguard stand, is a mere two minutes walk down quiet Palm St. and all but deserted most mornings. after nearly 30 years of staying in all sorts accomodations on Hollywood Beach, we've finally found the one place to which we plan to return year after year.

Room Tip: a vehicle or patience with local bus service is necessary to visit the many nearby attractions.

My husband and I traveled here in Jan. 11 and stayed 7 weeks. And came back Oct. 11 stay 4 weeks.This is a gem the rooms are large with full kitchens. John the owner is wonderful and makes you fell like you are home. The beach is bare foot walk with lifeguard and shower. The boardwalk goes for 7 miles to the band stand and all the resturants. Great to walk or ride your bikes.

Room Tip: If you like sun the front rooms are very bright.
