If you're looking for an affordable beach location, this is it. The rooms don't overlook the ocean directly but it can be viewed from some of the balconies. Realistically, you want to walk on the beach or view it from the oceanside walk anyway. The hotel is directly across from the beach and the 2nd floor patio area allows you... More

Pros: great location, just across the street from an excellent beach. Good selection at breakfast. Very good service. Cons: not kid friendly, especially if you have a toddler in a stroller. Stairs to climb everywhere. Only one small elevator at the rear of the hotel. Limited parking and the spaces were very small. Refrigerator in the room not on at... More

I can't say enough nice things about this property. It is always clean, quiet, restful and delightful. The girl in charge of breakfast even brought me a breakfast sandwich, outside on the terrace, when more became available. It is walking distance to 2 favorite restaurants. ..Las Olas and Gaia Gelato. Thanks again for a lovely night. :-)

Great location and nice, clean hotel. The breakfast lounge was a pleasant surprise and we really appreciated the ability to rent free beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and boogie boards at the front desk to take across the street to the beach. Easy access to Legoland. Would definitely stay here again.

If you are a family I absolutely recommend it. Great little pool and right across from the beach. It was perfect. The people there are the best, so friendly and helpful! They allow you to check out beach gear (umbrella, chairs, kids toys). Only thing, I wished there was a convenience store with basics. We ran out of water the... More

We picked this hotel because of its proximity to the beach (literally right across the street). Everything was awesome - location, service, accommodations. The staff was friendly and the rooms clean. Breakfast had a great selection and variety of foods. Highly recommend this hotel!

I must give acknowledgement to Prudence at the front desk. She was friendly, courteous, and sensitive to our every need. She recognized our Anniversary and made dinner reservations for us. Our stay was great, weather was perfect. Kudos to Beach View Lodge!

I would like to see Hard boiled eggs at breakfast and Kleenex in the rooms. My nose tends to run when I'm at the beach and I had to us toliet paper to blow my nose. I liked the coziness of the smaller facility.
