The Diane Motel is the ONLY hotel so close to the the Hollywood Broadwalk. that you can see the action easily. We were up in time to see the sun rising and sipping coffee on the patio. There is only so much that can be upgraded on a Motel built in the 50's, but I think they have done a pretty decent job, if you don't mind some of the crumbling
stucco and such.
Just a block from the outdoor theatre with free music on Friday/Saturday night. Ethnic restaurants so close you can even order, and pick up without driving, if you wish to eat on the patio. We happen to love the idea of parking our car and not getting into it again until it is time to go home. Just a block away westward is a really fantastic restaurant on the Intercoastal. (again a short walk away).
The place was clean with a new leather couch and 1950's decor.
Featuring a small kitchenette, refrigerator, & sink and a small non-glamourous bathroom. Table, two double beds and a "pull-out" for a single extra. The beds were
a bit hard, but spotlessly clean.
You can walk out your door and people watch from early morning until evening. The sandy beach is directly in front of this hotel. We stayed for 2 nights and were comfy.
This is NOT a 5-star hotel. I think we paid $120.00 a night. You get your room and
then don't need to have contact with the business again until you leave.
So, if you just like to hang-out and don't care about concierge and fou fou decor, pools,
long halls and parking in a garage, this is a nice get away. We have stayed at the Diane multiple times and we love it . . . much like Key West.... for the local fun of TRUE FLORIDA... kind of funky.
AND. . . if you have kids it would be perfect.. . . beach just outside the door and children's playgrounds a short walk away. Stroll with the babies up and down the Broadwalk and eat ice cream.
Enjoy! We did . . . just bring your bathing suit and flip flops....plan on hearing Spanish and French, and some German, as well as English, in this multi-cultural area.
