The property needs an update. It is in very bad condition. The location is fantastic and the staff were friendly and helpful. I likely would not stay here again for the price I paid.

Nice live music

Like this area nice vibe and reminds me of my town where I live at in Long Beach New York. I like beach areas and this didn’t disappoint. A few feet away from the beach beautiful views. Great tiki bar located outside and excellent drinks.

As I walked to the office to check in a strange man in the hallway asked if I would like a hit. I politely refused and went to the office and waited for someone to check me in. Once in our room I noticed a dirty towel on the closet door and took a pic, then noticed a grocery bag With someone’s belongings next to the door and I took a pic, now I’m worried so I pull back the covers and look at the sheets. The first bed the sheets were obviously slept in, I took a pic. The second bed looked like it had grit on the sheets so I took a pic and Then enlarge the shot… OMG not grit, BUGS!!! We promptly went back to the office where the staff was NICE and gave me a refund. We went to the Comfort inn at the airport and it was great.

The location couldn’t be better. But if you want peaceful this is not your place. The tiki bar is always busy from 11am-9pm. We found this fun but it’s not for everyone. Room was clean and comfortable and we were able to have a very late check in that was very easy. I would stay here again.

Price is way to high for condition amd cleanliness of hotel. I guess they charge so much because of location. The room we stayed in had a broken stove with the burners not attached cause they were broke. Housekeeping did not want to clean are room we had to ask for towels and beach towels numerous times. I finally went down to the front and asked if we could get new sheets and towels cause after 5 days no one has cleaned are room she said she would call them and have someone come clean it cause they are supposed to clean every 3 days well what we get is a angry housekeeping lady coming up to just argue that when she gave us towels yesterday we never mentioned for her to clean so we just said we just need new sheets and towles but she wanted to keep arguing about it and not let it go and be all mad and arguing which we were on vacation so were not trying to be in a argument with someone not wanting to do there job. The pillows are small and flat and if you ask for a extra pillows they said they dont have any extra to give you. Every hotel I've ever stayed has always given a extra pillow. There are soany other Hotels on the broadwalk save yiurself the headache and misery of this trashy hotel.

Great location and beautiful view. Our room was not like the photo. The beds were gross with sand in the sheets. No soap or any normal hotel amenities. Luckily it was just one night.

I like the ocean view,

Tiki Hut

This property is right in the middle of the famous Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. Staff was great and the location is amazing. Two steps to the broadwalk and beach. Property has a Tiki Bar and live entertainment daily! Rooms were a little dated but overall this place is great! Everything you want in a beach property.

very nice small oceanfront hotel. friendly staff. but for 4 nights in the hotel they never cleaned the room.

Cheap prices, hotel is old, needs major remodeling. It was clean thou. Location is great right on the boardwalk with great dining options and the beach.

Right on the boardwalk and you can literally see the beach from your windows

Property needs some Maintenance and updating. Great location but a bit run down.

Construction was taking place outside my bedroom window, there was concrete rubble in the courtyard, by the back door, and on the boardwalk. TV didn't work and no one came by to fix it after I reported it. You also misinformed me about only have a couple of room like mine available, despite the fact that of above 90% of rooms none were occupied. For $200+ per night, given the season, I couldn't stayed a a 4 star hotel.

The staff was great, i loved the opportinity to rent/borrow beach equipment. There was no charge as long as you bring it back in the same condition. This is great for those of us who flew in and did nor get to bring all the beach things you like to have. Veey nice ocean view also.

Good Day Kenneth, We are sorry to hear about the unpleasant experience you had at our hotel. That is unusual for our guest to have to go through such a hassle, typically you are given refreshments with much more ease. We deeply apologize for the frustration and difficulty caused on what is suppose to be a pleasant vacation. In regards to the pillow, companies are short on some material due to COVID-19- and we apologize for that item being undeliverable from our suppliers at your time of stay. The situation you experienced will be investigated and addressed, to insure that such will never happen again. Customer satisfaction and comfortability is our number one priority! We hope to see you soon in the near promising future.
