"loved the feel of the room and ocean view."
The hotel has a great style, vibe, personality. It's not cookie cutter. I loved the feel of the place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay in hollywood"
Had a great time. The staff was great, room was clean and spaciousGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location. .. But noisy with nearby constructi"
Once the mega Margaritaville Resort next door is complete, this hotel will once again be a really quaint Art Deco alternative on the Broadwalk. I hope it doesn't lose its charm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had an ocean view room which gave us a great view of the beach and broadwalk. The room was clean; the hotel employees were friendly and helpful. Access to the beach and broadwalk was excellent; there are many restaurants and shops within walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Just ok but great location"
Exactly as the title says....just barely ok but great location. The hotel was built in 1947...it is now being re done but I had one of the old rooms....I would say that the bath tub probably was from 1947! The rooms are quite small, ok for 1 person but really squeezy for 2. There was a boby pin on the floor on day 1...still there on day 9 when I left! […] The most annoying thing was the VERY NOISY air conditioning unit in the window. Past all that, the hotel staff was extremely nice and friendly and very accomodating. The hotel location is great except for the construction next door, and thus noise 1st thing in the morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"2 day Trip to Hollywood Beach"
The outside of the hotel is very outdated. However, our room was very modern looking. Great space, oceanfront view and clean. We enjoyed our stay very much! Loved our room and customer service provided! The location is amazing. You can bike and jog on the boardwalk. So many activities to do nearby. Had an awesome time and I will definitely be returning! […] Thanks Sheldon Hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in the Humphrey Bogart room. This is one of two rooms with a balcony, very cool. The room has been completely redone from the floor up. Walk in closet, spacious bathroom, great shower. We had a great time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Classic Hotel - Excellent bed and location"
The hotel is classic, built a long time ago. You can tell it has been subject to renovations a couple of time but you can still tell its old. Rooms are clean, but as you can expect for being in front of the beach, you can find some sand. I got a two double beds room with partial view to the sea. Staff is very willing to help always. Rooms are clean […] and it has excellent bedding, something most people appreciate. It's not that kind of dark shiny red oriental stuff that you see in most 3 stars and lower motels that looks more like couch upholstery than a bed comforter. Sheets are white smooth cotton, apparently more than 500 thread count that provide for a nice proper sleep. I've been at 5 stars hoteld and I can tell their beds are not that different. Location is excellent, just in front of the Broadwalk where lots of restaurants, cafes and small shops are located, and where people take a walk or jogging session. It has more than basic stuff included in your stay price (where other hotels charge you a fee), like high-speed internet, self parking a couple of steps away, refrigerator, cable tv (flat screen), ice machine, and you can even receive packages for online purchases. If you wish to find luxury and 5 stars service, go to a more expensive hotel. At night there is only a couple of employees, one in the front desk. When I'm visiting a new place, I rarely spend much time at the hotel to be able to enjoy it anyways. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"GREAT LOCATION, RIGHT ON THE BEACH"
BATHTUB WAS FILTHY, BASEBOARDS DIRTY, STAFF WAS REALLY HELPFUL AND ACCOMODATING.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hollywood Beach Florida"
I entered the hotel tired and mad at traffic on A1A. There was a space to pull onto, check in and then there was a parking spot in a lot around the corner, incl in price acn convenient. The lobby was art deco interesting the elevator was small and I was not sure how the room would be. I was surprised how nice the room was completely modern and clean. […] I paid for the water view but no balcony. The room was clean and nicely cleaned daily. Coffe machine huge closet toiletrees , no blowdryer in room. Refrig and microwave in room. It was right onthe boardwalk and was not noisy (at least on the 3rd floor) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, historic hotel right at beach"
The hotel is historic, but renovated and they have left pieces of history through out the hotel. The room was cute and quaint. It is right at the beach. Great value for a great location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a beach vacation"
The staff was very nice,room was average but for the price and location it was great!right on the beach a big plus since that's what we were looking for. Lots of shopping ,restraints and bars within walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved the sunrise view over the ocean right our our window.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach and surrounding amenities."
Walk out the front door and the beach is in front of you. Great boardwalk for walking, blading, bike riding etc. Shops, bar, grills are in short walking distance of the Sheldon. EnjoyGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at the Sheldon pre-cruise and it was just what we were looking for, a great location right on the broadwalk.Its not the Hilton and if you plan on spending all your time in the room this hotel probably isn't for you.We chose this hotel for the location and price and was not disappointed. The Sheldon is an older hotel like many of the hotels […] on the beach, but our room was clean and the staff were friendly. They provided beach chairs and towels at no charge and we only had to walk across the broadwalk to the beach. We would and probably will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great views of the ocean"
My overall experience at this hotel was pleasing. The location was fantastic as it was extremely close to the beach and restaurants so I was able to limit my driving time. I would recommend this location to anyone to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A hotel to avoid"
This is a non recommendable hotel, I do not understand the companies who sell this accommodation through their websites, don't you check them first??!!. The owner has not spend 1 $ to make your stay pleasant or comfortable! I would not even go back if the room was for free!Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was clean and nicely decorated with everything we needed. Friendly and helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, good value"
an older hotel but has undergone a recent renovation. It is perfectly located and has free parking. It isn't fancy but it isn't meant to be. Safe and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel right on the beach"
We had a great time. The beach was right out the backdoor and gave us an excellent view. This is not the type of hotel one would stay if they wanted a pool and plenty of amenities since there were few, however we go to the beach for a beach and just need a great view and a comfortable bed to lay down in after a full day of beach going and eating out. […] If you desire the extravagant spend your money elsewhere, however if you desire to be left alone and just be on the beach I recommend the Sheldon. I also found the staff very welcoming and talked to them all the time during our 4 night stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach!"
If you are looking for a place right on the beach, this location can't be beat! This is not a 5 star hotel by any means but it is clean, convenient and functional. It has been fully remodeled and made nice but not perfect. For example, the details like doors were painted but paint on the metal knobs, drywall sanding not perfect, etc. We would definitely […] stay here again though since the location is so awesome. Rooms have a fridge and microwave which is very nice. On their website it states they are 1 mile from Hard Rock and that is NOT accurate. It also states you get chairs and umbrella with your stay and shows a picture of a wooden lounger w/wind cover when in reality you get a metal fold up chair and sun umbrella. Overall though it made for a wonderful vacation and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Watch it before you book."
The appearance of the hotel is horrible. The hotel is under construction, everything looks ugly. The room was so small that I felt suffocated. This hotel has good location but a very poor condition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great views but still needs work"
Hallway ceilings weren't present. All wiring and pipes were exposed. Paint and finish were incomplete in some spots. Room was comfortable and late night staff was friendly. Morning staff threatened to charge me an additional day if I wasn't out by 11am (I was already gone).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Alert: Under renovation and construction"
This hotel has an excellent location on Hollywood Beach, but it is still undergoing renovations and this gave us a few problems. As a result our room did not have a finished closet or any other place to hang clothes. The phone was not connected and this posed a security and emergency risk and a great inconvenience when we needed to contact the front […] desk. The dead bolt in our door did not work as it was newly installed and was not aligned properly. The hallways have some open ceilings with construction bare bulbs hanging down and some of the tiles in the floor are ripped out. In addition to the workers and renovations in the hotel, there is also the problem with all the noise and dust from the construction of a new 20 floor hotel next door to the Sheldon Hotel. They start their tractors and machines up early and work all day. So don't plan on sleeping in late. This mega hotel is not scheduled for completion until the Fall of 2015. The Sheldon hotel website states that their renovation and construction was supposed to be completed by April 2012, but as of Nov 2013 they are still working on it and you will be faced with a host of problems if you decide to stay at this location. For all of these reasons I would suggest that you book another hotel until they have actually completed all of their renovations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"relaying mid week escape from work"
They have done a lot of work on the rooms, still working on some. The construction did not diminish my stay. They had beach towel, beach chairs and accessories. Right on the boardwalk, next to restaurants and bars. Breakfast on the boardwalk, great happy hours , all within 2 blocks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old noisy outdated"
I had a beautiful view of the ocean but the room was so depressing and I had to stay in the room because of the weatherGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect!!! Right on the Beach!!!"
Yes, the hotel is being renovated... But who cares! Not us! We loved the hotel! Cheap breakfast next door! Anazing views! Trolley rides for a buck! Staff nice! Life was good on the beach! Even gave us sunscreen! Will be back next time!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Liveable but not worth the price"
Although hotel was beachfront, few rooms actually are. No balconies. Hotel must have been going through repairs at least I hope it is not normally like that. Missing ceiling tiles, slanted floors, chipped walls, etc. Service folks at front desk very nice. Considering condition of hotel and its proximity to the beach (on it) a fair price would have been […] $70 per night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel right on boardwalk and beach"
We chose a smaller room and we upgraded to a remodeled room with an ocean view. Was worth the small extra price. Hotel staff was extremely friendly. We will stay there again!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
A very nice surprise given the mostly negative reviews. It is indeed under going renovations. We stayed on the third floor corner room and it was amazing! If you are looking for a place to lay your head and wake up to the sound of the waves book now.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pay more and stay elsewhere"
This hotel was dingy and dark. They are in the middle of renovations, but the extent of the renovations made the hotel very uncomfortable to stay in. No air in the 3rd floor hallways, and poor room numbering outside the rooms. The room was spacious except for the bathroom. The cleaning people were knocking on our door every morning before 9am wanting […] to clean. I do give this hotel a great review ONLY for their oceanfront rooms; the view is breathtaking. I would suggest paying more money and staying at a nicer hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Try it when removations are done- not now!"
I have stayed at the hotel multiple times since 1997. Our first visit in January 1997 was incredible and we decided to return again and again. It has been a little worse for wear each time over the years but this last trip when I called before booking I was told rooms had been remodeled. Imagine my surprise when we check in and find the hotel is in […] the middle of remodeling- with most of the rooms out of service. We were given a "City view/intercoastal view" room that overlooked the demolition of a large parking garage. The room itself was unappealing with a wire of some sort strung across the door frame and wall, peeling paint, lampshades with splits/tears, and worse- a filthy floor (took a shower and walked barefoot and had to clean my feet before getting in the bed). Both people staying in the room had problems with being congested each morning due to the air quality- most likely from the renovation work. The Bathroom had been updated and the floor in room was a nice plank tile. The front desk staff was uncaring at best. This is a Historical building and you have to take that into consideration when you stay here and you expect some quirkiness- but until they do some major work and address housekeeping issues they will not see us back.

Very nice atmosphere clean and comfortable rooms. Also right by the boardwalk in walking distance to the ocean live bands play on Friday night near by on a stage My son and me enjoyed our mini vacation at the Sheldon,Hollywood Beach, I would recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"GREAT location !!"
The location is amazing. Right on the boardwalk, and close to restaurants. It's not a fancy hotel. We had just a little room that provided a bed and a bathroom, so we could rest and shower in between outdoor adventures. For the price that we paid, it was good. The room was small, but it was clean. We didn't really need anything more. The king bed was […] comfortable. There is a very small TV in the room, no plasma, which was alright because we didn't go to the beach to watch TV anyways. They provide towels (I believe we got like 2 per room), beach chairs (they are low chairs, so might not be good for older people), as well as an umbrella (it's kind of small, but it works). They provide one free parking space, which is great so you don't have to struggle with parking or pay for expensive $20/day valet (like other hotels make you pay). The hotel even provides ice, so you don't even have to buy that. One thing I will say, the bathroom was kind of small and might be uncomfortable to bathe babies. Bottom line, if you are planning to spend the whole time outdoors instead of chilling inside the hotel, this is a really good place to rent. It's small but clean. The hotel itself doesn't have many features, but they try to accommodate you to make your beach vacation a stress-free one (with all the beach perks they lend you). We will definitely consider this hotel again next time we plan a trip to Hollywood Beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Its at the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
we got away for a weekend, and this was the best choice. the hotel has gone through some renovations. There were some small items that would need to be fixed, like the bathroom door not closing completely. But overall it was very clean and friendly. Perfect location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple - but w/ view like this that is enough"
The Sheldon Hotel has basic accommodations, but that is all that is needed. This place is excellent if one wants to get away from it all - have a great ocean view and "de-compress." No iron board in room - no problem, as one doesn't want to be bothered with such tasks when on vacation on the beach Rooms are comfortable, clean, and have everything […] needed to promote a relaxing stay. Close to restaurants, bars, and of course the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Just what the doctor ordered..."
We wanted a quick weekend getaway. Amazing location on the boardwalk! It's an old building so don't expect a modern Marriott style room. Clean and comfortable. The ladies at the front desk were very pleasant and accommodating. We'll come back to the Sheldon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, horrible service"
Great location on the Broadwalk, and the rooms were clean and pretty big. The woman at the front desk was nice, but there was really no service here. We called down for shampoo, and were told to come downstairs and get it ourselves. The elevator only works after sundown, the doors to the broadwalk close at 7, which means you have to walk around the […] back of the building, and the only option for late check-out is going to cost you $10 an hour. In addition, we planned on checking out on time at 11 and then spending the day at the beach. Parked in "their" parking lot (which not even all of the spots are marked for Sheldon), we asked if we could leave the car there for a few hours. Though there were plenty of empty spaces, we were informed it would cost us another $10 for a day pass to park. The food around the hotel was also horrible, as was the service.

"Location is amazing"
Old hotel in need of TLC and upkeep but large, clean rooms with amazing ocean view right on boardwalk at a reasonable price. Definitely a diamond in the rough. They provide beach chairs and umbrella to enjoy the water which is just a few hundred feet in front of the hotel. Many good places to eat along boardwalk and close parking and less then 20 minutes […] from FLL airport. I would stay again and recommend Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Sheldon-good as long as ur blind and love stairs"
Here was what was good about this hotel: location, clean towels, clean sheets. The fridge was great too once I found it (hidden inside a dresser?!) Heres the ugly part: YEARS of dust on every picture, mirror, behind tv; there must have been 300 ppl's DNA all of our room & the entire hotel. Amd thr fact the each of our 3 days there- the elevator died. […] So forna person with 2 broken legs from not even 2 yrs ago- the 2nd floor room was a horrible hike. There were literally holes with exposed wires in atleast 4 places I saw, & the plaster walls were falling apart. Oh and they have TAPED the room numbers on the walls, I could have played tricks on ppl all night long if I wanted. Sheldon hotel was a major disappointment. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
