Hotel is old location is good beach front. The room was nice size microwave & refrigerator. They had 2 beach chairs and umbrella for the beach in your room. It's right on the boardwalk, Many restaurants and shops near by. Walking distance on the boardwalk. Parking was a block away and misleading website made it seem like it was free. It cost $10 perday not to high. Bed wasn't comforting, pillows were.

If you're on the hunt for just a no-frills room right next to the beach, look no further. If you want simple convenience of any kind, look elsewhere. The parking is offsite and outdoors, the wi-fi is intermittent, the bathroom and shower have zero space for personal items, no complimentary toiletries and perhaps the biggest one, the windows overlooking the beach do not open, despite having handles. They are permanently sealed. These may seem like nitpicky observations but once you're there, these and other things become an annoyance.

Get this straight hotel Sheldon is one of the best hotels on Hollywood Beach Yes it’s an older hotel It was built in 1940s classical architecture retro vibe Painted all beautifully white from floor to ceiling the place was spotless maintenance and the cleaning crew always working Always available to assist you The number one reason for staying at Hotel Sheldons is the front desk manager Patricia our third year in a row and I will make it 4 next year Because of Patricia and her staff That’s why I rate five stars Oh yeah location can’t be beat couple steps to the sand love the McGilloway’s see you next year👍👍👍👍👍

We have very much enjoyed this place! It’s NOT fancy, but it has a lovely retro charm. The bed was comfortable and we had a beautiful view. The staff was always working touching up paint and cleaning. They were very personable . There are lots of great restaurants and shops around. It’s just a laid back, no fuss stay. The only downside at all was the very small bathroom, but you really don’t vacation for that!

We left Key West late and really just took our time but they were super nice. The hotel is very clean and hand sanitizer stations are everywhere. First, check in was super easy. We like small boutique hotels and this one does not disappoint. We had a king deluxe room and the view was amazing. The bed was really comfy and the sheets felt good. The fridge was a nice size and we loved the tv. They have Paul Mitchell teatree products in the bathroom and the real biggie was nice beach chairs and umbrella not cheap ones that break easy. Plenty of coffee. While they dont serve food, there is an ice cream shop that serves breakfast just outside the door and the Taco Joint is also on the other end. Now, I saw some reviews about housekeeping but let me say this. I was happy that they didnt come in our room to clean up. We are grown and we can pull our covers up and pull our trash. I usually tell them not to, just give me some towels anyway. They will bring you clean towels and coffee if needed. One thing though…..Sheldon Hotel….please put a broom and dustpan in the closet. :) We loved this hotel and will be back. The location is perfect and they have everything needed for a stay at the beach.

I am still unhappy about the "free parking" that has a $10 per day "administration fee"!!!! The website clearly says "free parking" but that is not true. We stayed 3 nights and the parking add-on fee was over $50. If I could have gotten a refund we would have gone elsewhere. The room was OK. We paid for an ocean front view but the windows were so dirty it was hard to enjoy. Our mirror in the bathroom was also very dirty. We had NO service of cleaning to our room at all because of COVID. When I asked for some spray cleaner and paper towels so that I could clean, no one (front desk or cleaning lady) seemed to know what I was talking about. Makes you wonder.... The location is excellent. Coffee in the lobby was surprisingly good. Beach and broadwalk are great. Margaritaville is right next door with good restaurants. Giorgio's is good for breakfast on the water. Plenty of clean beach towels and umbrellas. Mattress was OK with plenty of pillows. TV was OK. Fridge was big plus.

I travelled with my mother, it was a pre-mother's day quick getaway. We had an amazing experience there. We got there around 12 noon, which means a few more hours before check in. We first checked to see if there is any room already available at that time. The answer was no. Then I asked if we could leave our luggage in their office so we could start enjoying the beach. And without hesitation, the lady at the front desk said "Sure!" and guided us to their small office. We changed and headed out for food (right next door!) and hung around the beach (right in front!) until it was time to check in. So as far as location, you cannot get any closer to the beach than here. The service was excellent throughout our whole stay. There are free towels, umbrellas, and chairs on a first-come first-serve basis, although I think I saw a few people take chairs to their rooms. Haha. Again, location location location! Right on the beach and restaurants are just next door. Price is definitely worth it! Will stay here again for sure!

My husband and I celebrated our 18 year wedding anniversary this past weekend in Florida (May 20-23). We chose Hotel Sheldon at Hollywood beach because it is right on the beach, close to shops, eating, entertainment, and because the reviews I read were pretty good. The first morning we had coffee and breakfast in our room and returned later that day to find bugs (maybe tiny ants) all over the coffee pot table and all over the table by the tv. We informed the front desk and they said that they would let house keeping know. We returned that night to see that housekeeping had somewhat cleaned the room and that there were still bugs milling around. The next day, same thing occurred. They said that house keeping could not find any bugs. I offered to bring them to the room right then and show them because they were there. Also told them that I had video. They requested to see the video and then rushed me off to a room to show (I assume) the manger. They assured me that this has never happened and offered to discount my room. Although my original intentions were not to received a discount, it was only to inform them and get them to fix the problem or move us to another room, I will say I was a bit offended by them only discounting $58 ($19 a night). This bug problem completely inconvenienced us because it was supposed to be a trip to relax and decompress, but we couldn’t even enjoy a cup of coffee in our room without the fear of getting bugs in it. We were also very concerned that the bugs were going to come home in our luggage.
