Great location right on the beach. Tiki bar faces the ocean and has live music in the afternoons. Some of the parking spaces are a little small, but they do have an overflow lot that is just a block away with plenty of room for larger vehicles.

I would recommend this hotel for all ages. Directly on the beach and on broadwalk where everything is going on. If you are looking for a quiet vacation, this is not the place for you. This is for those who like to enjoy life.

Our son graduated from FIU but we didn't want to stay in crowded Miami area. We made a great choice selecting Hollywood beach. You could step out of your room right at the beach, tiki bar with live entertainment, many shops of all nature. Love the area and will return. The RIPTIDE was very good choice, and would recommend to...

This was a great place it had a Caribbean feel very laid back. Live music and tiki bar right out your door. Rooms are very quiet. There are bars and restaurants all up and down the boardwalk so it makes it convient. Would stay here again.

Location is the best. Rooms and service are okay. But its pricier than it should be. If the rooms had a separate balcony then it would have been worth it. However, its not bad at all. Would love to stay here again during summer.

Love The Riptide! Best cobb salad anywhere! We had 3- in a 4 day trip. All staff are fantastic. Always great music, drinks & food! Right in the broadwalk-table or bar seating, looking out at ocean. LOVE it!

I was also disappointed. The room, the noise (a band playing feet away!) and the dinginess made us happy that we were only staying one night. As my partner & I told each other during that one night stay.. The quicker we fall asleep, the faster the night will pass.

We're are so disappointed that you feel this way about your one night stay with us here at Riptide. We do advertise live music at our tiki bar starting at 12pm but our live music never goes passed 9pm, daily. We hope that you might give our North building a try in the future. Not only is it located away...

3 night stay and each night was worse than the one before. Arrived late on our first night, management left us a voicemail telling us our suite would be on the ground level overlooking the ocean. The door was unlocked with the keys inside. This room was nothing like any of the pictures on the website. Numerous coats of paint...

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us at Riptide. We are very proud to say that our reviews are written by guests who come to stay at our hotel from various places around the world and not by our (wonderful) locals who frequent the tiki bar. As far as the noise complaint, we have zero tolerance for excessive noise...

The best thing going here is location. Great location within walking distance to food and and activities. The rooms were ok, but this is an older place and it shows signs of it. Of noise bothers you I would stay elsewhere as the rooms really do allow for noise from people in the rooms around you as we'll as outside.
