“Old, decrepit and depressing...”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

So I'm always looking for the hidden gems... Ten minutes South of Fort Lauderdale airport. On the beach. Straight shot out to 95 on Hollywood Blvd. Reasonable, low rate during "the season"....

The place is old, run down, dirty, the hallways smelled of bad fried food. No maid service. Ancient old bathrooms. I almost ran screaming from it, and if it wasn't so late after my flights in from So Cal I would have.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere!

HBT was disappointing. My unit was not clean and was in need of repair and updating. The normal toiletries consisted of a bar of soap only and the front desk had no more. My "view" from the 5th floor was of the parking garage. Worst of all, the shower had a mind of its own and went from very hot to very cold to very hot... Best of all was secure parking.

We stayed at the Holywood Beach Tower from dec 18-28 before taking a cruise. Our one bedroom was on the third floor and faced inland. The location of the hotel is ideal. we enjoyed being so close to the beach and walking along the boardwalk every evening and being close to Fort Lauderdale, shopping, the airport and the cruise terminal. The accomodation was very comfortable and spacious. The two bathrooms came in handy with the three kids. We had all the needed utensils to cook for ourselves. We also BBQed by the pool. ideal location for families (our parents joined us for christmas and had a room on the 11th floor with a great view). staff were always very pleasant and helpful. liked the free underground parking. would have no hesitation in going back.

Room Tip: an ocean view room would be very nice but we still had a great time in our room that faced inland t...

HBT is located right on the ocean at beautiful Hollywood Beach. Walk out the back door and you are steps away from the beach. Out the front door, cross the street and you are at the beatiful Intercoastal waterway. Depending on which side of the building your unit is on (and how high up you are) you have either a spectacular view of the ocean or a superb sunset view over the Intercoastal waterway, including views of palm tree-lined Harrison Street and Hollywood Boulevard. Staff members are helpful, cheerful and attentive. While the units are showing their age, good progress is being made at restoring the resort to its full potential.The refurbished Brordwalk that passes right by the resort provides a great place to walk, bike and people watch. Lots of restaurants along the Broadwalk, Josh's Organic Juice Bar and Market and free concerts with dancing under the stars at the bandshell all add to the ambiance and convenience. An onsite parking garage, a nearby public library, the Anne Kolb Nature Centre on Sheridan Street and Dania Beach are other great local features. Free wi-fi is available in all units. We have been coming here for 30 years and always look forward to our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms above third floor for best views.

We stayed at the Hollywood Beach towers last year and loved it! Yes, it's a bit old, but who cares? I'm not so spoiled that I expect everything to be new. This hotel was clean and the condos are very large and very clean! The hotel staff was "exceptional"! All so upbeat and friendly and ready to help us in any way they could. We've stayed at a few very pricey hotels in the past and never found the staff to be as friendly and accommodating as they were at the Towers! The hotel is fine, the staff is amazing and the beach is only steps away! What more could one want? Yes, there are other hotels along the Broadwalk that are probably more updated, but you'll pay for those updates! They won't be cleaner and more spacious and the employees will surely not be any more friendlier or accommodating! Not possible!

We enjoyed a quick getaway in November. If you are looking for top of the line, state of art this is not the place for you. If you want a warm, friendly, clean and inexpensive place with a great location, then definitely give this a try. The staff could not be nicer, and the place is very clean. Only a ten minute drive from airport. It is right on the boardwalk and can walk to many stores and restaurants. The pool and hot tub were very nice, and they have parking. If you would like a view of the intercoastal then you need to request a room on the upper floors. Definitely will be going back again!

Room Tip: ask for upper floor

A time share from RCI. Deception from arrival except location. This hotel is rundown. In need of major renovation and TLC. Directly on the beach excellent location. There is nothing else good to say about this place. We book for 1 week but left after 3 nights. It should not even be offered to anyone until a complete major renovation is done. Email us for more info .
