"Great Location, too many bad renovations."
The Hotel was fine, room was clean except for the windows, they looked like they had 5 years of dirt and grime. That would have been a real problem if we were facing the beach.We stayed one night and got there after dark. The check- in took toooooo long and the Concierge is a Shuttle driver that only wants to drive, I do not blame him.They should be […] seperate jobs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
$18.00 to park, $10.00 resort fee. The hotel has two different front desks. I never received my wake up call. I used the vending machine to buy a water and when I pushed for a water I got a pepsi. No business center. The hotel is old. I would Never stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Affordable beachfront nostalgic setting"
Great location, right on the boardwalk. Room had everything you need including full size fridge and stove. TV was outdated though. This is a historic hotel built in the 1920's and much of the charm still comes out. I liked the fact that they have kept enough of the history in this building and yet have upgraded it enough to be comfortable for today's […] travelers. The wi-fi was good which is important to everyone. Even with the resort fee and the parking fee it is still a good deal for a beachfront hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"For 56 bucks I was on the beach..."
I read lots of the reviews about this place, but for me it comes down to getting what ya paid for. I paid 56 bucks for the booking rate for a room here. They DO gig ya for parking, but your car is secured in an indoor garage. I got decent TV and the wifi worked. My room had coffee, fridge, microwave, stove, sink, 2 chairs & table. They DO have a bar […] Oceanside, and the beach is right there! Some dude said this place was a hospital in WWI, but I couldn't get any employee to confirm that. I saw a photo where Al Capone was staying here in the 20s so it was certainly a hotel then. It IS old. But I had a room near the beach for 56 bucks booking rate.

"An Interesting Experience"
Booked as a last-minute stay for an affordable rate in nice location (40 minutes from Miami). Staff are nice, security makes you feel safe, and the old hotel has an interesting vibe. Abandoned shops and original tin ceilings make it great to explore and enjoy. Rooms are clean and basic. Nice pool, great spot, but if you're trying to work out during […] you stay...... better get a trial at a nice local gym. Pack your camera and be sure to capture this intriguing encounter.

"Don't waste your money terriable"
This hotel isn't as great as it looks. Room was outdated and run down. Be prepared to pay an outrageous amount for overnight parking, plus day rates. Parking was a nightmare! The guy at the parking garage was rude and lied to get more money from us, The elevator we were informed kept getting stuck with people in it. The room seemed dingy and dirty. […] I was not impressed at all. This is not what I would consider a "resort". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"DO NOT GO HERE"
Worst experience ever. $10.00 resort fee....for what?? filthy rooms, terrible breakfast, cigarrette smoke filled hallways. not going to waste more typing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"would not go back, hidden charges and nastiness"
Hotel room was nasty and dirty, hair all over the sink, floor was sticky, filthy slow-running shower/tub. pool was nice and warm, but it closed at 6pm and you can't even check in untill 4pm... not much time there. this would all be at least expected if it was a cheaper room without the hidden charges of resort fee (+$10 per room) and parking (+$18 per […] day) - ridiculous! There are 1-star hotels all up and down the beach here with better facilities and prices, so don't waste your time here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was a little surprise of the hotel. On the internet, the pictures which are shown gives an entirely different impression. The wait was very long for check-in. Stayed from Monday thru Friday, and had to ask for the tub to be cleaned on Thursday, along with obtaining clean sheets, and having the room swept. The appliances and cabinet were much older […] than on the internet. In booking reservation, was told that there will be continental breakfast. That did not take place. It was denied. The valet staff was very pleasant and courteous. I do not know if there will be a second visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The key is to make sure you have one of the renovated rooms. I was afraid of what I'd find based on the reviews. I noticed on my receipt it said "renovated room." Room was clean. Front desk and night security were very friendly. The only problem I had was with the parking costs, the ten dollar resort fee, and the placement of the registration desk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"OK Hotel by the beach."
Walking to room hall ways smelled like mildew. Our A/C in our room wasn't working well. called front desk and sent over a non experienced tech. tell us A/C is blowing. felt like the fan is working not A/C unit until we told him to take out the filter which was never changed and he left it unfiltered cause didn't have. A/C was working ok everything was […] fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!"
One of the two beds smelled of urine, the other bed that was supposedly just cleaned had sand all in it. The blanket on the other bed smelled of urine. At night someone else in another room was cooking and it filled our room of the burnt smell. If I could of afford it I would of just walked away and gone somewhere else, almost tempted to sleep in the […] airport. I checked the bed for bugs, my husband and I didnt even want to shower there. For a room that took 3 hours to clean at least ( we got there at 1230p and couldnt get a room til 3p) and the only reason we got it at that time we sat ourselves in the lobby and the boss came in. Yes check in is not til 4pm but this hotel was a ghost town and I doubt all rooms were occupied. All other hotels every where else at least tries to accomodate their guest. The maid upon check out was rude. We were getting our bags into the hallway and she made us move out of her way and then also took the elevator in front of us even though we were waiting. Also, the first time the shuttle picked us up the guy was nice, however, on drop off he was like the shuttle is complimentary tips are accepted, since unfortunately we didnt have cash we could not do that he got mad and yelled to all the curbside help that we dont have cash, dont help them and slammed the doors shut. Also the "mall" is just a coffee cart, a t-shirt store, and bike rental. The place is very very run down and should be shut down and completely renovated. Do not stay here!

"Night of terror"
well, some of the front desk staff were ok and some were really nice. The breakfast girl was awesome, the rest of it i was not impressed. The quality of the room was awful. I am glad i got a 70% discount because i would never stay there again at full price, actually even if it was free i would probably prefer to pay to go somewhere else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't waste your time!"
Old hotel and it shows. Customer service was not accommodating. Wife felt nervous and unsafe in both hotel and neighborhood. Would not and will not stay here again, nor should you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pictures on web nice ,,, the real thing is too old ,,, furniture and showers are the same as back in the 60's horrible ,,,, go up the street to Marriott ,,, 35 dlls more and you get a real nice room ,,, FREE PARKING and they don't charge for internet or take any deposit from your cc,,, don't waste your money ,,,Genuine Expedia guest review
Very clean hotel convenient to restaurants and bars. Right on broadwalkGenuine Expedia guest review
Got to the room and their was no view and the beds were tiny. Upgraded which doubled my price for a beach view in a Penthouse suite. Nothing sweet or Pent House about this room. Could not see through the disgusting windows. Horrible stay and not worth the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
Parking is expensive ... Rooms are horrible .... Room service is annoying waking u up even if you yell no i dont want room service ... I dont recommend any body this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel sucks! Do not I repeat do not stay there. The hotel is old and run down the lobby looks abandoned. They charge for parking even if your staying there. They charge you a resort fee for using their towels. I would never stay there again. Their air conditioning doesn't work you will be better off opening a window then there is mosquito. Terrible […] terrible terrible there overall rating should be a 0 because thats what it is. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel has great location is in front of the beach. The room is not well kept the drawers were falling off, the sliding glass door keep coming out of the tracks, the coffee maker needs a better one, not enough pressure on the bathroom. but we have to remember this Hotel was built in 1927. It was a good deal for 3 days anyway!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel Great Location"
Historic hotel on the beach. If you want a family friendly experience this is it. Walk out of the hotel onto the boardwalk and find a restaurant to eat at or take the shuttle and cook your own meals. Yes it looks like the hotel is experiencing a slump since the "mall" of shops on the first floor was primarily deserted but the room was clean with marble […] floors, a kitchen and a comfortable bed. There was no parking but they had a free shuttle to the airport and a shuttle service to shopping and dining. We had a great time! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice hotel close to the most beautiful beaches for an incredible price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach"
I was afraid what I would find based on all of the reviews about the hotel. The Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port is the actual resort, the Hollywood Beach resort is the time share resort, both are in the same building. The check-in staff was friendly and helpful, I asked for an upgraded room, not sure if that is why our room was good or not. Our room […] was on the 5th floor and it was clean and had a little kitchenette. The building is old and it is right on the beach so expect the furnishings/flooring etc. to be well worn. The linens were clean and soft, the bed was ok for me, my husband tossed and turned all night. The free continental breakfast has toast, bagels, croissants, oatmeal, grits, fruit, coffee, tea, juice and cold cereal. You can pay extra for eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage etc. You walk outside the hotel and the beach is feet away. There is a 3 mile long boardwalk you can stroll down with shopping and restaurants. All in all a great deal for the money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice location, run down hotel"
I stayed here for three nights and the internet wasn't working the entire stay. This is a feature that is a must for me because I was on a business trip and I work from my computer. I had to walk a couple miles down the boardwalk to find a place that had available wifi. My room was equipped with a kitchen so I bought food to cook. However, there was […] only one large pot. I requested a frying pan and the staff told me that there was nothing they could do about it. I then asked to speak with a manager and was told she was in a meeting all day. I left a message for her to return my call and she never did. There are two hotel registration areas. The next day I went to the registration that is separate from the hotel and they were very helpful. They immediately brought a pan up to my room and refunded a day of the resort fee. I suggest avoiding the registration desk that is in the building next to the hotel elevators. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Don t waste your money"
The hotel is shabby with old ugly outdated decor. 2out of the 3 elevators didn t even work. The rooms have tile floors and no curtains on the windows , just cheap mini blinds. Continental breaskfast was awful. Your required to pay an additional ten dollars a day resort fee and an additional 15 dollars a day for parking. You would be better off shopping […] around because for the money you spend here you can stay in a 5 star hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to the beach, but not the level of quality."
Not the type of quality stay our family is used to, it's outdated and was probably very upscale in the 20's. the hotel staff could have made our stay nicer but when we got there it was overbooked and we spent 45 minutes checking in listening to horror stories from people who didn't get their room. We were given a different room than what we paid for […] . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"dont stay here"
They don't tell you its a mandatory 18.00 a day valet parking. Also they don't tell you till the end that there's a 10.00 resort fee till you check out. Its not a resort its just an old creepy motel that use to be a Army hospital in WW1. Staff is very undesirable and don't speak English. Don't stay here!! Rather stay at a Motel 8!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel is on the Beach. Condition is deplorable."
I checked in at 8:30 am and checked out around 3:00 pm. I had planned to stay overnight. The only good thing is that the hotel is on the beach. We were taking a rest and we were disturbed with loud noises on the floor twice for an extended period of time. I do not recommend this hotel unless you are looking for a cheap location on the beach and do not […] care about the cleanliness of the location. I wasted my money.

"Not For Romance"
The hotel use to be the it spot back in the day, however it has lost it's luster. The property is split in two, because its own by two separate management companies. The front desk clerks was not too helpful with rules and what not about the resort. We didn't know a key was needed for the pool until we were denied entry by the pool boys. The restaurant […] in the resort is decent, but the areas where around the lobby areas use to be a mall. Now it is basically dormant empty store spaces. The hotel room could be much better, so you get what you pay for, literally. You do get a kitchenette fully stocked. No floor mats. My ocean view should have been labeled partial. If your staying multiple nights, house keeping needs to be requested for cleaning because a lot of the room are occupied by living tenants. The positives are that boardwalk bar is great and the beach is only feet away. We spent most of our time there of course. It was a perfect location for what was needed though.

"Just ok for the price"
I requested a non- smoking room and it was but there were rooms close to my room and the entire floor smell like smoke including my room. The room itself was very clean but the bathtub was horrible again. I've stayed here previously and the bathtub was just as horrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice weekend getaway!"
My room was very spacious and very clean. The service of the staff was cordial and friendly. I noticed there were areas of the hotel that are not being used which takes away from the overall hotel appearance. The lighting in the hallways were a bit dim for me. At first I was apprehended by some of the reviews I read about the hotel prior to my arrival, […] however, I stayed with my grandchildren and we enjoyed ourselves and felt pretty safe.

this historical hotel was built in the 1920s which is really just a plus. Rooms are simple and for the price you can't ask for more. It was clean and organized. The location right on the boardwalk is what makes the stay , great. Restaurants, ice cream parlors, and the beutiful beach at just mi nutes. The place could use some touch-ups.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A bit Outdated"
The Hotel is a bit outdated in reference to Furniture, Lobby, Fixtures, Etc. Great thing is that the rooms are tiled which helps with the smell and cleanness. However my room smelled like "Pepto Bismol" :0) which was a little weird yet manageable. The bar by the pool serves great drinks and food, and the musicians are wonderful and relaxing. If this […] hotel would get an upgrade and be remodeled I personally think there wouldn't be any other like it. The location is great, the surrounding restaurants and bars are wonderful and it is just a massive beautiful hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It looks like the hotel from the horror movie "The Shining"... All the floors smell like cigarettes... The smell was disgusting. The rooms are kind of ok... Took a shower and the water could not flow down the drain...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The employees are horrible. I got kicked out the pool because to much of my family came to see me. Then the pool guys was starting a fight with another guest cursing in front of all the kids and security came and just laughed and threw that family out. Then when I asked the security a question about the amount of guest he told me not my problem I'll […] go with whatever he told you. Then when I went back to the pool the pool man told me and my guest to get out because we ccomplained about him. If they changed their employees and trained them right I might stay there again. Oh and I asked the maid service if they can just make the bed and give us fresh towels she told me no and walked away and our tub was over flowing. I also woke up on my last day there at 8am to my son telling me the door was open. Good thing I had the swing lock on. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
