"Hotel on the Hollywood Boardwalk"
The location of this hotel right, on the beach easily make up for the lack of comfort amenities. The staff is always helpful. The hotel provides beach chairs and towels. The rooms are cleaned daily.Genuine Expedia guest review
Just across the boardwalk from the beach! Remodeling, but our room was comfortable and clean. If your looking for a sweet little boutique hotel on the beach this is your place. Check for construction discounts. Enjoy Hollywood!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location is great! But hotel needs room renovation,especially bathroom.Hotel staff was great and overal experience was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location -Cheap remodel - not worth price"
Remodel is being done on the cheap - poor paint job, instead of encasing wiring into the conduit in walls or at least in track on wall - left dangling. Towels and bathmats should have been discarded months ago- skimpy soap for bath and hands, soap dish on sink - stupid. Did furnish "old" beach towels, umbrella & chair for beach and has free parking. […] Persons at desk - not too pleasant at all - Appear to be funding remodel with use of hotel during remodeling, Hall floors broken tiles, ceiling tiles broken, some old some new tiles. Bed and bedding were very good. NO directory for TV stations asked, do not have. Lobby empty except for desk - few chairs along walls in lobby. If not for the central location would have been a terrible stay. Not a place to stay now and maybe not ever if remodel continues on the cheap. Bill Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location on broadwalk"
It has a long way to go .. our room was noisy from A/C units right outside window . The room floor and bathroom floor were not cleaned . Hair from previous guests was on bathroom floor . Good for one night stay , but DO NOT make this a long term vacation .Looks like Rooms were furnished with garage sale items .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
NOT YOUR TYPICAL HOTEL IF YOU WANT A 5 STAR IT IS NOT BUT A GREAT LITTLE NEAT PLACE RIGHT ON THE BEACH WISH IT HAD BEEN WARMER, WAS ONLY THERE ONE NIGHT WAITING ON A FLIGHT BUT HAD A GOOD EXPERIENCE, MORE RENOVATIONS ARE ON THE WAY MAYBE A 5 STAR SOME TIME SOON!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place wasn't bad if you're looking for a place next to the beach to party in for a night or two. It is right on the boardwalk and close to a number of restaurants and bars. The employees were very helpful and even lent my girlfriend an umbrella to use on a rainy day. The room was clean with tiled floors, but the furniture was old and beat-up. The […] place looks like it has been partied in pretty hard and even had a beer opener attached to the bathroom door trim which had been painted over a number of times. Overall the place was just ok, and I would probably opt for a place with a pool or hot tub in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I'd go again."
I liked the hotel and it's location. However the hotel needs some improvement, e.g., room could use some shelves sinces there was no bureau in the room. The bathroom had no shelves and no table to put things on. I had to use the toilet with the cover down, and the back of the toilet. The shelf over the sink was not even and didn't hold much. The sink […] in the bathroom filled up with water and drained very slow. The toilet didn't flush unless you held the handle until the toilet flushed completely. However we were comfortable in the room and I would stay their again. Housekeeping was very good and the staff at the desk very polite and friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
WIFI DIDNT WORK. HOTEL WAS EXTREMEMLY OUTDATED. NOT WORTH THE PRICE I PAID. THE PARKING SUCKS! THE VIEW FROM THE LOBBY-AWESOME, BUT THAT WAS ABOUT THE ONLY POSITIVE. OH- AND NO CAPTIONS ON THE LITTLE TV IN THE ROOM. IT IS 2013! REALLY? :(Genuine Expedia guest review
Parking area was a little hard to find at first.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It's absolutely the best location on the whole strip. it is currently being remodeled but it is very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is under construction with areas of the hotel all torn up. The Lobby had no appeal. You had to be given an Iron & Iron Board to take up to your room. The TV was very dated. Was glad I was only staying for one night. Wouldn't stay any longer. Desk clerk was the only staff person working and refuse my request to preview the room. Never to stay […] there ever again.

"On the Boardwalk"
This was a last resort option, because I needed a night in Hollywood, and it was the cheapest available close to the Boardwalk. The website photos showed a beautiful white lobby. They didn't show the broken tiles in hallway, 30 inch wide doors to the room, broken tiles at tub handles, stained bathtub, hair on bathroom floor, 13 inch TV, lots of noise […] from hallway and adjacent rooms.

"Quiet, relaxing and fun"
We had a great stay. The people were nice and we were right on the beach!! And free parking!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right next to Hollywood Beach Park"
We stayed for five days. The hotel is right next to Hollywood Beach Park. The hotel was the first one built along Hollywood Beach and the Broadwalk, in the 1940's. The management has been renovating the hotel, but we didn't experience any construction while we were there. More renovations are planned for spring 2013.We were disturbed early Sunday morning […] when some hotel guests returned to the hotel about 3 am and continued their Saturday night activity. The disturbance lasted for about 30 minutes, until the person at the hotel desk became aware of the noise and told them to quiet down. The management doesn't want or tolerate those behaviors. So, let them know if it happens while you are there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Hollywood Trolley operates three lines on Wednesday through Sunday, all of which stop on Johnson Street, about 50-60 yards from the hotel entrance on Surf Road. This is helpful because parking is very limited around the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good but a little disappointing for the money"
I really don't have any complaints. This hotel is in a great location facing the beach and walkway area. I'm thinking this is the reason that it was not less in price. For not having a continental breakfast and the somewhat dull appearance of the inside and room I found it to be a bit expensive. I have paid the same amount and had much nicer accomodations […] but then again was not right on the beach. So again I am not complaining. There is wi fi and free parking and the room was clean but it was more basic than I was expecting for the price I paid, that's all. The staff are very friendly and courteous and I was made to feel welcome. It is conveniently located near a lot of restaurants and shops. I guess that's what the say about location location location!

This is not a luxury hotel, but it is very clean, well-run, recently renovated. If you need something, ask. They most likely will be able to accommodate your request. I recommend this hotel highly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall stay was good, location is perfect. Hotel under renovation but staff very accommodating. Room was great. Extended our stay because we love the area. Would definetly come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location disgusting bathrooms and floors"
The bathroom was awful I had to shower with my sandals on, other people's body hair was all over the place. Says it was recently renovated looks like they spent more money on locks for the room then anything else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice and friendly staff. Had two rooms for the family and one was much larger than the other. Both clean and comfortable. Some noise from remodeling crew but not excessive. No Raddison by any means bus a pleasant place to stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Frills - But a Gem!"
Hotel is going through some renovations, so if you want the cream of the crop - look elsewhere. But if you want a clean hotel with friendly staff, great location, great price and free parking, but can skip the frills - then come here!Genuine Expedia guest review
If you want location--this is the hotel. If you want creature comforts, look elsewhere. Maybe after construction is complete, we would recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good deal for its price"
The hotel is old and needs a renovation...but clean, and staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Winter 2012 visit"
The Staff was friendly. Price was low with consideration of the renovation work underway.I would visit again after work is completed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"location can't be beat"
hotel is under restoration, lobby has just been completed, staff is friendly and helpful, there is free parking, it's not on site but close enough to be convenientGenuine Expedia guest review
"Diamond in the rough"
I knew going into the hotel to expect the construction; so it was not a surprise. There was no lobby at all. The hotel staff was very friendly and gave us an early check in. The entire hotel is under renovation. This hotel is over 80 years old; so it needed it. We got an old room but it was very clean. The king size bed was comfy, the sheets were very […] clean and soft, the microwave and refrigerator worked and the tv had a ton of channels. We had an ocean front view and it was awesome! This hotel is located right on the boardwalk. The location can't be beat! I heard that Starwood resorts is going to be building feet away from the hotel, once that comes in this hotel will be able to charge a ton more (especially after the renovation). If they do it right, it could really be a cute boutique hotel. Ask for a renovated room (I heard they will have walk in showers and all new flooring, etc). The older room is fine but expect a bathroom from the 40s-50s. Make sure you take in lunch at Giorgios and dinner at Las Brisas. I would go back to this hotel again---just do not expect 4 stars while under construction or something boring like a chain hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel Sheldon is great beachside location on the broadwalk. It's still under construction though, so some noise during the day is inevitable. A great place for the price, clean rooms, and a beautiful view of the ocean and Hollywood Beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the price"
Location is great, lots of bars and restaraunts around. Shower barely put out enough water to get wet and when I mentioned it at the front desk all they said was they didn't have any other rooms. Beach is great, for the price I'd consider going back if I couldn't find anything better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"!only review you need to read!"
Hotel: nice room with flat screen TV, the bathroom is brand new we paid $20 more for an ocean front view and it was a great view. The room was still economical as the total was $143 for deluxe ocean view. The staff was friendly they had our room ready at 12 pm. They give you towels, an umbrella, chairs. Parking is included. Location: that's the best […] part if this hotel. Its right on the boardwalk and beach and its right in the middle of the boardwalk. You got all kinds of restaurants like Italian, French, Greek food also lots of bars and hamburger places. There's an awesome ice cream place downstairs and a fudge place near by. The boardwalk is family oriented. Lots of mini Parks for kids. Bike rentals. There's a mini mall close by also and an outdoor theater that they do shows on every night. Overall great family area i didn't look for nightlife too much most of the boardwalk was dead by 12am on Saturday. Im from Miami and been to south beach alot and it was great. The people were really nice and friendly from the waiters and fellow tourist. I will be back for a longer stay with the family next time. Was here for anniversary getaway Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a great location and is right on the beach. The hotel is very outdated and is currently under renovations which have been going on for over a year. The floors of the rooms are very dirty and look like they have never been cleaned. The staff is friendly. As long as you don't expect luxury then its a ok place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right on beach,"
Great staff Beds Great Clean everyday right on beach next to all kinds of food right downstarirs and out the door for breakfast Cant wait to see the new front when all renos are done ! Yes there is still work being done but the workers are very goos at being as quiet as possible stay here its very good ...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to go and enjoy"
The building has some things that need to be fix but nothing major. The location is great and in a relaxing and quite neighborhood. I will go to this hotel again in a hearth beat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A horror story after Halloween!"
Only two good things about this hotel... location and ah, ah, ah... sorry, there's only one! Tiny toilet was a foot off the floor in a tiny bathroom with 3" of caulking everywhere. No exhaust fans! Electrical wires running to ceiling lights... huge electrical boxes sticking out of the walls... scuffed, dirty and damaged doors and walls... dirty gout […] on the tile floors. Do not look in the corners, especially in the elevator! Tiny TV... refrig was off balance... no hair dryer in room. No one answers the front desk if you call after 10pm. Why would you call? Drunken brawls, fights, screaming and crying women you swear are in your tiny bathroom... all night long! We stayed two nights too long and got very little sleep. The noise inside the hotel at night was frightening. They do suppy beach chairs and towels. The chairs are tiny, low and rusted folding beach chairs... once you sit & sink in the sand you have to roll out of the chair to get up. The beach towels are worn & thin Goodwill rejects. The employees will tell you that the hotel is being renovated... has been four years and still no improvement on the interior, but the exterior looks great! If you don't care what the room looks like or sounds like and you're not worried about getting any night rest then the location is perfect! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, quiet, and reasonable rates."
It is hard to rate this Hotel because it is in the process of renovation. It was built in the 1940's so it certainly isn't modern or have all the whiz bang things a more recent built hotel would have. It was clean, quiet, on the boardwalk, and the price was right for the location. Coming from a high priced Key West hotel the day of stay put us in shock […] at first upon arrival. They are trying to improve the room's decor and I'm sure it will look well when finished. Being built in the 40's the doors and walls are thick so you don't have the noise of the modern hotels. We enjoyed our stay and the staff at the desk were very friendly and professional. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"not what you pay for"
no staff with etiquette, plumbing is an issue, the website sells it but its not what it is,a plus it has parking there is no bell man if hotel under construction sell for less rateGenuine Expedia guest review
"Looking forward to post- renovation"
Not a bad overall experience. The hotel could use a little bit more "sprucing up". You know broken tiles all over the floor , wires hanging all over... These little things could be addressed even during Reno ...however overall great location, staff is friendly and helpfull. Not a bad place to check in for a nice getaway on Hollywood Beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a great time,,,,,I was able to unplug/relax and then enjoythe ocean, restaurants & other boardwalk amenities. A lovely recharging stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice stay, getting better every year!"
Have stayed here for three years strait. Yes, it still needs some improvements such as finishing the construction that's been going on for the past three years, but overall it's a nice place for a romantic getaway the view from the ocean view rooms is spectacular the service and front desk people are really nice too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
ENTER THE LOCATION, UNDER CONSTRUCTION , ELEVATOR SCARED ME, ROOM WAS NOT CLEAN , DEAD ROACH ON THE FLOOR BATHROOM WAS NOT CLEAN PROPERLY, VIEW WAS GREAT BUT OVER ALL I WAS DISPOINTED, FOR THE AMOUNT I PAID I COULD HAVE STAYED AT WESTIN OCEAN FRONT HOTELGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel location is great. It is right on the boardwalk, with access to the beach and restaurants. The hotel is going through some renovations, so maybe some of the 'not so great' things will be corrected. The bathroom, although clean, was poorly maintained: broken tiles, loose fixtures, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
If you want a good hotel with a comfortable room and bed - go elsewhere. If you want to be on the beach - it great. Actually, it wasn't horrible. But, it was not a hotel quality that I am used to. I suppose it is typical for a beach front - non $400 a night room, but - I prefer better.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Complete misleading dump"
This hotel is a complete dump. The pictures and description were completely different than what the real condition of the hotel was. From the beach, the hotel looked ok, but from the entry and everywhere else it was a complete dump.. There were people sleeping in the alley where you check in. We checked out of this hotel first thing the morning after […] we checked in and stayed at a different hotel for the same price. I would absolutely not recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Great location right on the beach!"
Hotel Sheldon is located right on the beach and is a great place to stay before or after a cruise in Fort Lauderdale. The location is excellent, next door to many shops, restaurants and family friendly bars. It was nice to lay out on the beach with free chairs, towels and umbrella provided by the hotel. Then you could easily walk a few feet for some […] lunch or dinner. The hotel itself looks to be going under renovation and it does need it. Our room was clean but the hallways and check-in area was outdated and run down. New paint, doors and furniture wouldn't hurt either. Otherwise, the beds were comfortable and clean.

excellent location..my room had a view of the beach and restaurants are all along the beach....great family atmosphereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you spend time IN the room, you won't like this"
Location - As good as it gets. Period. The hotel and room itself is dilapidated. Turned on the shower, rusty water came out. Everything is ridiculously old - except - for new windows. Go figure. A/C worked good too, gotta throw that in there. Oceanfront room view is fantastic. The rooms are nothing to write home about, however, the hallways are dreadful. […] Dreadfully noisy. If you pushed hard enough you could open a locked door. Seriously. If/when they are done with the renovations, I might consider returning. But as-is, never again.
