4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were fortunate to have an ocean facing room with a full kitchen. This would have been a great place for a longer stay. Our room was modern and beautifully decorated. We had a beautiful view of the beach and the ocean from our balcony. The staff were friendly and helpful. This was good value.

The room was very clean and recently upgraded though the bathroom still looked a little tired. The location was fantastic. Right on the beach with a pool and little seating area to enjoy the surf from a distance. Also it's right across the street from the Surf Bar. Great drinks and the food was really good.

If you are familiar with the strip of motels from Fort Lauderdale to Hallandale and Hollywood, dating from the seventies you will be right at home here. Although dated, it is the only hotel on the beach, whereas the others are across the street. We found the hotel very clean and what made it special was Hilda at the front... More

This place is great. Met all our expectations, everyone at the front desk was helpful. The housekeeping girls went out of their way to make sure we had anything we needed. Jackie made check in and check out super easy. Everyone including other guests were a pleasure to meet. Will stay again. Thank you John and Pat from Richmond Va.

My wife and I had a delightful time during our stay at the Beachside. The motel is not one of the chains (none of which is located directly on the beach). But the rooms have been kept updated and are clean. And the towels are thick. The mattresses could be improved upon. But overall, for the price, for the view,... More

Cute and clean Motel like in the good old times. Very friendly stuff and extremely clean rooms. Nice pool and for about 50 m to the beach. Beautiful sunsets included. Price is ok and you get a little breakfast and coffee at the front desk. Will return cause I had wonderful time there.

This is an old style motel that is located on the beach. The rooms are updated and clean. There is a small area with a frig, a microwave and a coffee maker. There are also dishes and silverware. (We always stop and buy sandwich fixings and snacks to have on hand.) The beds are a little firm for me but... More
