The Grand Lady of the Port Everglades Cruise Port

Dubbed the grand lady, the Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port holds a prominent spot in local history. Built in 1925, the Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port was designed to mirror the classic Mediterranean revival style. After extensive renovations, the hotel's interiors have been refreshed with new kitchens, countertops, bedding and floors in all studios and suites. Guests also appreciate direct access to the Hollywood Boardwalk, the Port Everglades Cruise Port and the two-story mall onsite.

Highlights
  • Mediterranean revival style hotel at Port Everglades Cruise Port
  • Full kitchens with dishware and cookware
  • Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway views
  • Laundry rooms on every floor
  • Free continental breakfast for two guests on certain room types
  • Free Wi-Fi access
  • Parking (fees apply)
Location

For cruise goers, the Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port boasts an ideal location at the southern end of Port Everglades and near the famous Hollywood Boardwalk, which earned the distinction as America's Best Beach Boardwalk by Travel & Leisure. After a day of rollerblading or sunbathing, guests can also spend their tourist dollars at the on-site Oceanwalk Mall (the only enclosed shopping center directly on the oceanfront) located on the first and second floors of the hotel.

Rooms

A $3 million renovation updated more than 100 rooms, adding new granite countertops in the bathroom and kitchen, wood cabinets, porcelain tile flooring, bedding, furniture and decorative crown molding. Tropical and abstract prints brighten the space and coordinate with curtains and comforters. Studios and suites at the Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port enable guests to prepare meals in full kitchens and log on to Wi-Fi for free. For a peek at surrounding vistas, request a room with an ocean view.

Recreation

Palm trees dot the canvas surrounding the outdoor pool, which is hugged by a sizeable sundeck for lounging. The Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port also keeps the blood flowing via the neighboring Jacuzzi and indoor fitness center equipped with treadmills, stationary bikes and StairMasters.

Not impressed

The room we got was in poor shape. On our floor, there were a bunch of obnoxious people partying all night and they were extremely noisy. We called the front desk and they directed us to security. After I talked to security, I saw one of the security personnel showed up on the floor but did nothing to take care of the situation. He only walked down the hall and left. We did like the fact that the hotel is right on the beach, but other than that, we weren't impressed. The price was too much for what the hotel had to offer. Based on the price and the experiences with the hotel, we will not return there again.

Red Roof Inn is Better than this hotel!

Booking of a "Superior Ocean View Suite" through [...] yielded a single room efficiency with a view of the second story roof above the restaurant. Bedroom floor, ceiling and bathroom were dirty.[...]

pleasant surprise return trip

I had been to the Ramada Hollywood twice before, the second time was disapointing. staff unhelpful, included breakfast served in a hallway. But the location is so good, had to give it another try. what a pleasant surprise. staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast overlooking the beach, room clean and recently freshened. I won't wait so long to return!

Great Hotel and Staff

I travel monthly to Florida and I always choose to stay at the Ramada Hollywood Beach Resort. Very nice rooms that are clean and fresh! Staff is friendly and the view and boardwalk is a perk!!!!

not so good for the price

this hotel has been recently renovated and it shows.however the infrastructures (plumbing :fixtures,drains )are still old and mostly inoperative.Corrosion is serious. the rooms are small and not very well furnished.I have seen better at Motel6.Imagine an area 14ftx13ft into which there is a queensize bed ,a 4ftsq table +2 kitchen chairs,a 27in TV set mounted on a 4ft wide chest of drawers,a 2ft wide clothes cabinet one bedside table.This does not leave very much free area to move around. In fact we had to walk sideways to get around.The bathrom is very small and has no space to deposit toileteries such as toothbrushes soap etc.Having no easy chairs, one has to watch TV laying down on the bed. The first room that was assigned to us,(#335)had a 20in TV hanging off the 11ft ceiling (worst than in hospital)the drains (kitchen,bathroom sink and bathtub)were nearly completly plugged.The plumber was'nt able to rectify.We were offered another romm the next day (#327).Here also the drains were plugged and the taps corroded and non functional.After a long hassel and arguing with the manager we finally ended in room#561 where at least the drains were a best functional and the water taps in working condition. One more reason to be irritated was the fact that there was no parking facilities unless we paid $15/day to use a public facility across the road.We were not made aware of this when reservations were made. After all these nagative remarks I must conclude the following was good and acceptable; - airconditionning; good -clealiness: good -renovations:lovely but cosmetic only -emplacement: excellent -this is a very nice place However, -rooms: too small,kitchen facilities superflus and useless within these dimentions -plumbing: horrible (the entire system appears to be plugged all the way down to the main sewers -bathroom:outdated small and fixtures obsolete

Dismal

This hotel looked worn out and dingy. The main entrance where you drive up had all the charm of the parking lot at JFK. There was a long wait to check in, and then only one bellhop on duty. Room cleanliness was so-so, but the whole place felt like it had seen better days decades ago. The kitchenette was especially gross; the worn-out particle board countertops had swelled up from absorbing moisture. This hotel desperately needs a gut renovation.

Would not stay there again!

We're not impressed with the quality of the room very small, mold in bathroom around bottom of doorway, tub had major stains and scratches, bathroom sink unit coming away from the wall, electrical outlet and hairdryer were stuck in the middle of the mirror (very classy)! Cigarette burn on night table, room smelled of cigarette smoke (we always request non-smoking rooms) ironing board and iron hanging on wall in full view! Hotel is under renovations for lobby, they need to upgrade their rooms! We would hate to think that this place is up to Ramada's standards. Room was priced reasonably which included continental breakfast (this was good), but to keep people coming back the above problems must be improved regardless of any special deals!
