“Neat place”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

I was passing through for work and stayed here. I had no idea of the location being near an old downtown area with restaurants and bars. The location looked t be fun if I had the time to enjoy it. The price was good and underground parking was provided for additional charge. There was a pool and a tiki bar but unfortunately the tiki bar was closed when I got there. Breakfast was included and ok. The room was nice other than the old smell the room had. Looked like a nice place to possibly spend a weekend and enjoy the local area.

We stayed in before and after our cruise from Miami and were satisfed enough to recommend it to freinds.The hotel is not new but is well kept. The rooms are comfortable and clean with fridge and microwave. Hollywood blvd is just in the back with very good restaurants and the trolly to the beach(1$) is at less than 3 min of walk.The staff is very very accomodating.

We stayed here for 3 nights before flying home from Miami airport. The hotel has a motel feel to it, all rooms open onto courtyard and pool area. The pool is a good size, but when we stayed there the seating around the pool was limited, although the cafe / bar area had seating. It would be great if there were more umbrellas for those of us who can not sit in the sun for long periods of time.

The good things - the staff were friendly and helpful, although open arrival the confirmed bookings from expedia had not come through to the hotel, so there was a moment of panic as the hotel was almost fully booked. The parking in the hotel was secure and no issues about leaving my car there. The room we booked 508 is a large suite for two double beds and was quieter as it was in the corner of the building. The room as a result was very dark and the air con is too loud to sleep with it on, but this wasn't an issue. A secure safe, Coffee, microwave and fridge were available which i had to switch off at night due to the humming noise. Beds were very comfortable. Late checkout to 12 was also offered. The location is good and easy to get around, THe local restaurants were varied and the food was good. Beach is a short journey away.

The rooms are tidy but a little dated and bits and pieces in the bathroom were dented or looked loose. Basically it needs a makeover. You have to rely on vending machines or some beverages sold in reception which adds to the motel feel, instead of hotel. we never saw the bar open in the day. I think it is a little overpriced for what you get, but the location is what sells it. Cost from the hotel in a cab to Miami airport is arranged by reception and costs 60 dollars.

Room Tip: rooms in the corners are quieter, not so much noise from the pool area

Thank you 2012JandBS from Bromley, England, United Kingdom for the opportunity you gave us for choosing the Ramada Hollywood Downtown.
Our nostalgic, eclectic hotel has a spirit of fun. It is an outside corridor hotel with our rooms starting on the 3rd floor of the hotel where our heated pool and Tiki Bar Courtyard are.
I am sorry you could not find seating around the pool. This time of year folks such as yourselves are coming to South Florida from all over the world to enjoy our warm winter and sunshine. My team and I are looking to see if and how we can add more seating without obstructing the walkways around the pool that are required for safety. We are also looking into adding more umbrellas as well.
I am sorry your A/C and refrigerator was disturbing you in the night. Had we have known our maintenance team would have resolved this issue. Our goal is to provide you with comfortable accommodations.
My team and I look forward to an opportunity to be of service to you again in the future.

Rather than repeat every bad thing that has all ready been commented on, please pay close attention to 1 and 2 star reviews that have in there subject line: old, never again, worst ever, avoid, dirty, horrible, disgusting, rundown, smelly, et cetera. We found that we agree with almost every point. I have been very successful in the past with the TripAdvisor reviews, but was swayed by the 4/5 star ratings on this property. Be vary weary if you do not smoke, it is a smokers paradise. Stay at your own risk!

Hello Max from Saint Petersburg, Florida.
I am sorry your stay with us and the two other South Florida hotels you reviewed were not what you expected.
We are a nostalgic, eclectic, hotel with the spirit of fun, located in Hollywood's Historic Arts, Dining and Entertainment District. We have 40+ restaurants, clubs and boutiques all within 2 blocks of any direction of the hotel. Most of the buildings here have been built between 1926-1960. It is a mixture of Mediterranean, Art Deco-Novo Architecture. It is like a mini South Beach.
Thank you for the opportunity you gave us and we want to be of service to you again in the future.
