“A whole new look at Hollywood Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

Small, well kept, amazing beach location, a slice of old Florida located within a quiet area of N Hollywood Beach. Owner/manager John is the quintessential host who adds tons to the experience. Units are spotless, beautifully decorated, with tiled and terazzo floors, artwork, and full bookcases in every room. World famous Hollywood Beach, but the quieter North end, complete with a county lifeguard stand, is a mere two minutes walk down quiet Palm St. and all but deserted most mornings. after nearly 30 years of staying in all sorts accomodations on Hollywood Beach, we've finally found the one place to which we plan to return year after year.

Room Tip: a vehicle or patience with local bus service is necessary to visit the many nearby attractions.

My husband and I traveled here in Jan. 11 and stayed 7 weeks. And came back Oct. 11 stay 4 weeks.This is a gem the rooms are large with full kitchens. John the owner is wonderful and makes you fell like you are home. The beach is bare foot walk with lifeguard and shower. The boardwalk goes for 7 miles to the band stand and all the resturants. Great to walk or ride your bikes.

Room Tip: If you like sun the front rooms are very bright.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2009

I traveled with my two daughters and grandbaby to Hollywood. We stayed at the Sunshine for 5 nights. The location was good, the beach is walking distance. It's in the north side so you won't find any souvenir shops and big hotels. It's in a very quiet residential area and you almost feel as if you have your own private beach. You do need a car to get around but it's well worth the money (we paid $350 for a week). You'll find nightlife and good restaurants less than 10 minutes away. It's a no frills motel, you take out your own trash and put dirty towels outside to get clean ones. You do get free internet service. Jeanne seems very friendly and helpful. Also, if you're going on a cruise, it's super close to Port Everglades. There is a coffee maker, small fridge and toaster in the smaller rooms (2 double beds). Good enough to make some coffee and have some quick breakfast or re-heat food. Overall, we enoyed the stay. We will definitely be back.
