My wife and I just returned from a Thanksgiving trip to Hollywood, FL, staying at the Hollywood Beach Resort. Built in the 1920s, then ravaged by a hurricane almost immediately, this resort has had a tough history. Current owners are attempting to bring it back to it's glory days, but have a way to go. Rooms (we switched rooms because the first was in a poor location) were adequately furnished including kitchenettes. Views of the ocean were nice although there are no balconies from which to sit and admire the views. Staff was agreeable enough although the concierge was not much help in finding good restaurants and reasonable transportation.
The hotel has a beach-front bar called O'Malleys which is wildly popular with the locals, and offers reasonably priced drinks. Wednesday night ladies drink free from 7:00-10:00, thus the drunken ladies when we arrived :-) There is a "Mall" on the lower level but it is kind of depressing - not much af any interest -, just junky beach shops.
Avoid the rude coffee stand owner on the lower level, and head up the beach for better coffee and no insults at other establishments. Enjoy the beach, the nice pool with Jacuzzi, and easy access to a wonderfully nice beach.
If you are OK with a less than 4-star resort, don't need pampering, and want to relax at a resort with beach access and views, this is an OK place. Price compare though, it is definitely NOT a first-rate property.
