“Conveniently placed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

Firstly this us part of a group of small motels under the guise of "Hollywood Hotels". I actually booked the seagull as it looked ok on the internet but on arrival we were allocated the blue wave.

The rooms were quite shabby and in need of a good overall but for the price and location and as we were only staying 2 nights we couldn't really expect much more as other hotels in vicinity were double the price.
The rooms are not cleaned during your stay due to "privacy regulations" and they don't have safe boxes.
Parking and wi-if are both free of charge but the advertised breakfast is just coffee and toast.
All in all OK for the price paid but don't expect alot

This was our 3rd trip to Hollywood Beach, but our first at Blue Wave. Booked a 10 day stay on the internet because the location is perfect. Upon arrival noted a "for sale" sign on the property and thought this can't be good. The people running this place also run 4 other motels in the immediate area. Room looked clean until you tried to open the blinds. They were filthy with dust and did not work. The stove was rusted and I would not use it. Two noisy air conditioners kept the room cool, however, we could not sleep with all the noise, so we had to shut one off at night. No phone in the room. If you needed the office, it was in another motel around the corner from the Blue Wave. The amount of towels were "hit or miss". One set of kitchen towels were full of long black hair. Bed sheets were paper thin. I rated this average because the office staff tried to be accommodating, I feel that for the cost of the room, plus $10 a night for parking, this was not someplace I would return. Next year I will be looking earlier to book a place at Hollywood Beach.

The front office uses a cash register that does not record cash transaction. So if you pay in cash and the night clerk does not record it properly, your Visa is again charged (the next day) and you are not aware of it until you return home. The cash receipts will not show this entry and in our case, the clerk left immediately for New York. The hotel does not accept any liability for their bonded employees, nor business practises(complaint with BBB), that leaves their customer vulnerable to theft or fraud. Without a paper trail or video the police cannot investigate either. For double the quoted price, the Hollywood Beach Hotels- Blue Wave, etc. are not worth it. Floors, window coverings, etc. are not cleaned properly. Must scrounge for clean linen. Need major renovation as everything is dated and well worn. The continental breakfast was not healthy. Mostly sugary pastries

I stayed here for nearly 2 weeks my stay was awesome.. We barbecued on the grill on the property. Simple breakfast. Paying for parking here is way cheaper than the metered parking.. The pool was always clean.. The staff is exceptional John, Natasha & the young lady at night are awesome, friendly and always willing to help.. Housekeeping girls are friendly & helpful but Teisha was my go to girl and she was great, always going above and beyond.. The hotels are very close to the beach & board walk.. Kudos to you guys me and my entire family will be back hopefully for New Year's Eve.. You guys made my stay great..

Had a not to nice experience early in the stay but when John the manager showed up he made it all better.. Thank you John for being an awesome person keep it up and I will be back.. The room was nice, clean and spacious.. Housekeeping was great. Change my stuff when I ask and were always pleasant. Hotel is Very quiet. Internet worked great here. My kids love this section with the pool that was always clean.. Just a few steps from the beach and resturants. Thanks again John and your housekeeping staff for changing around my vacation from being miserable to great..

It's spacious and well cleaned the pools are always clean and the scenery is well maintained. I recommend it to stay here . The prices are reasonable overall this place is worth it . The hotels are close proximity to the ocean and the stores are nearby . This hotel has a small convenient store located inside with its ATM . Worth a shot to try it
