My wife and picked this hotel based only on the online reviews we read. We were traveling to the Miami area for the National Championship football game in Sun Life Stadium which is about 20 minutes away from the hotel.
We were very surprised at the quality of the hotel for the price. The hotel has recently remodeled the guest rooms so everything is up to date and clean. They are in the process of remodeling the lobby but it is not disruptive to the stay. The hotel sits right on the boardwalk and is only a few yards from the ocean. There is also a beach chair rental booth that is right outside of the hotel.
The beach is beautiful and clean at this location. There are also several restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops within a quarter mile radius of the hotel. Only small downside is that the hotel parking lot in a block from the hotel but we parked at the rear of the hotel and unloaded the bags then parked the car. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a location in the Hollywood or Fort Lauderdale areas.
P.S. The pictures on the hotel website does not do justice to the hotel and they don't reflect how close the beach is to the hotel or how nice the boardwalk is outside the hotel.
