Beautiful getaway

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Sheldon. The location on Hollywood beach is stunning. The lobby could use some work however, I think they are onto something with the gentle blue decorations that sets you relaxed. However, theres like parts of the could-be-amazing-lobby that need to be repainted and theres this weird stand by the front desk with a ton of wires just hanging out of it that they could easily just cover up or put somewhere else. It was pretty tricky to find at first because you have to drive down small streets through all the construction going on on the street. The hotel hallways I guess are being redone too(?) I never heard or saw them working on anything but they had cardboard on the hall way stairs. The hall ways are small but the second floor has really nice views as you walk down it. The rooms were small and cute. At first, I was given a 2 bed room for my hunny and I, but the people at the front desk helped fix that and upgraded us to an ocean view king room. That room's view really puts you into vacation mode. The walls are pretty thin though, as I could hear the people as they walked out in the hall and there was a gentle level of music playing outside all the time but it didnt really bother us. The workers were very friendly, accommodating and helpful and available 24 hours. The only slight improvement I would suggest is maybe a more uniform look. They looked tired and bored as we first arrived feeling excited- kind of makes you feel a little "meh" when you see saggy jeans and someone just trying to get through their shift, which I understand how it is but, the customer shouldn't feel it too. The hotel is also near everything. There is so much to eat and do nearby (Haggan Das, Oompa, and a ton more) and there is free parking. It was perfect for us overall and I would stay there again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Everything is nearby! The most delicious ice cream in both directions and cheap boardwalk food. Night walks on the beach are a must and chairs are left out on the beach. Also- the hotel gives you beach towels and chairs for free. But-- their personal chairs don't always recline. They are chairs.

Average, but adequate

The staff was very helpful and courteous. The location was excellent right on the beach, but the hotel itself was quite antiquated they didn't even have an ice machine, which I thought was strange. It's definitely a much older hotel. Probably back in the day it was considered a very nice, upscale hotel, but with all the modern resorts in the area, it will probably never be considered much more than a two or three star hotel, but I did, for the most part, enjoy my stay and would recommend it just bring your own bag of ice.

it was ok

The staff was nice the location is great as soon as you walk down and out the doors you are on the sand. Lots of good restaurants in walking distance. The only thing was room service wasn't the good we had to keep asking to get the room service and on the last night there they didn't even come

Fantastic

It was a perfect location. The beach, restaurants, and novelty shops were right on the boardwalk. I will recommend this location to family and friends.

Old and tired decor

This place is supposed to be remodeled. The only things new were the mattress, lamps, frig and small tv. Everything else was old and dated. The room had an awful smell to it and we were given an air freshener to fix it as they had no other rooms available. The location is great, but the rooms aren't. I should have listened to the other poor reviews.

Not all rooms are equal

The same price for the same category of rooms but there is different furniture in them, they advertise a nicely furnished cleaner room and they give you the older version.

Hollywood Beach Florida from SFO, CA

We just recently had our vacation in Florida and we stayed in Hotel Sheldon. The room that we got was a good deal. However we arrived at 7:00am and the check in time was at 2pm so I talked to the receptionist and she said she will upgrade our room and just pay the difference instead of charging me per hour. We had the ocean view, which I really love. Overall the hotel was not bad for the price. They have the chairs and umbrellas that you can borrow and use. Instead of renting outside which will cause you around $30. So its a good price and close to the beach!!!

It needs work

Not a bad hotel, the staff was very nice and informative.. As for the hotel, it said it was "newly renovated" .... FAR FROM! It was very old, bare, and needs some color. My "partial ocean view" room was staring straight into a palm tree with no view of the ocean. The hotel was right in the middle of the action with shopping, and an amazing "Lil Venice"...happ i didnt spend much time in my room.
