"Comfy Cozy Coccoon"
It was very clean, quiet and nice. The water was steps away, but not the beach. The owner went out of her way to help get me settled in the middle of the night. No pool or outdoor amenities, other than the koi pond and a few lounge chairs. Still, a great stay, where I slept like a happy baby!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed at Angelfish Inn the night before a cruise. It was amazingly clean, despite being so close to the beach the place was spotless! Speaking of the beach, this place is less than 1/2 a block from the beach and has chairs and umbrellas you can use for free on the beach. The broadwalk on the beach has everything you could want to eat or drink (all […] within walking distance). The Inn also has grills that guests can use. The next day, I needed a ride to the port for my cruise. The taxis were booked for 30+ mins, so the owner had her daughter drive us to the port (for free!) If I'm ever in need of a clean, friendly, homely, beachy, affordable place in Ft Laudedale, I will for sure be back! Thanks for an amazing stay!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Owner very nice. Hotel old."
The manager Karin was very nice, and I really appreciated how available she was. I also like to support local business. Also very close to the beach. However, this is a motel with old bedding and linens, and a musty feel of an old motel. If this is ok with you, then the price and location are great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and great staff!"
We stayed two nights and wished we had stayed longer. The location was excellent and the room was great. We had a full-sized fridge, stove (and oven) sink and dishes. The kitchen appliances aren't extensive, but I felt if I asked Karin, she would of found anything we needed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Really cute area"
Loved the area, felt very home-y. There was an issue with the fridge and Karen was nice enough to move us to an even bigger room with a working fridge in no time. Highly recommend!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old Florida charm, steps from beach and broad walk"
We stayed at the Angelfish Inn for two nights. Our room was very nice, clean and very comfortable. Karin the owner was great and very accommodating. What I loved most about the inn was it's location...you are just steps from the beach and Hollywood Broad walk. It was also walking distance from some old favorite restaurants & bars on the beautiful Intracoastal […] waterway. The Inn has beach chairs, towels and umbrellas for guest to use. If you are looking for quirky, charming old Florida style then I would definitely recommend the Angelfish Inn! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN!"
LOVELY ATMOSPHERE. LOTS OF TROPICAL FOLIAGE AND A COOL TURTLE POND AROUND THE COURTYARD . HOTEL OWNER/ OPERATOR IS VERY ACCOMODATING. SHE HAS 2 BBQ GRILLS RIGHT THERE AND LOUNGE CHAIRS AND WASHER DRYER, BEACH CHAIRS AND TOYS ETC. SO CLOSE TO SEVERAL AWESOME RESTAURANTS ( LE TUB AND GEORGIOS)YOU CAN WALK TO THEM IN 2 OR 3 MINUTES AND THE BEACH IS ONE […] HOTEL AWAY. LITERALLY LESS THAN A MINUTE. ON THE CORNER, RIGHT ON THE BEACH THERE IS A JUICE BAR AND THEY DO YOGA ON THE BEACH AT 730 AM ANYONE CAN PARTICIPATE. RIGHT NEXT TO THAT IS A STORE THAT MAKES HEALTHY FROZEN YOGURT SMOOTHIES ( THEY EVEN HAD A DR OZ SMOOTHIE -YUM!). I MADE MY COFFEE AT 530 AND WALKED MY ONE MINUTE TO THE BEACH WITH IT EVERY MORNING TO ENJOY IT AS I WATCHED THE WAVES ROLL IN THE SUNRISE. WALMART AND PUBLIX GROCERY STORE IS 5 MINUTES AWAY.

"Cute & fun"
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience and plan on returning. The personal details make this a special place, but it's not for everyone. If you're looking for a cookie cutter chain hotel, this is not it. It's an adorable one story hotel with a courtyard, small pools filled with fish and turtles, and brightly decorated rooms. Short walks will […] take you to the beach, boardwalk, liquor store, & pizza place. Adorable hotel and the sweetest staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good Stay at Angelfish Inn"
We had a good stay at the Angelfish Inn. It was pet-friendly so our Toy Australian Shepherd was able to stay with us (even though the beach and boardwalk was not pet-friendly). The room was clean and comfortable. The Inn Keeper was very nice and helpful. We had a rental car and the Inn provided us with street parking pass so we did not have to pay for […] the parking. It was quite nice as the street parking in Hollywood Beach is 24hr parking meter that charges $2 per hour on weekends. Obviously it's not a 5 star hotel but for our quick weekend beach trip it was more than satisfying experience for us and it did not break our bank. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Overall good stay, beautiful yard, good location"
It's not Ritz by any means, but it has a quite a few nice features - location is great - right on the Broadwalk and the beach, very convenient to have a kitchen with utensils, etc., The decor and grounds is what makes it stand out. It's obvious the owner really cares to maintain the greenery around the hotel, there are plenty of chairs and picnic tables […] in the yard to enjoy a meal outside surrounded by the flowers, cacti, fish and turtles - kids definitely enjoyed that part. The owner puts a lot of work into the decorations - blues and greens around the rooms, pictured of fish, etc. The inn itself is pretty old, and the pull-out sofa was old and uncomfortable, but I think the beautiful yard compensated for that. Overall the stay was good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Relaxing funky getaway"
We found a little gem in the Angelfish Inn. The owner, Karin, was super friendly and accommodating. Love the courtyard with koi pond and turtles. Property is one block from beach and boardwalk. Room was cute and clean, love having a kitchen. We will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ups and Down of "Quaint" older Inn"
Stayed with family just one night recently in room 6. Each room I believe comes in different sizes, features and layouts. While aging, there is a true quaintness about this place located slightly over a block west of the beach and boardwalk. There is not enough on-site parking if the Inn is full, but we were given a parking pass to park along the street. […] My main complaint was very noisy window A/C unit above the master bed and the ceiling fan over the sleeper sofa my daughter slept on when she found the trundle bed not conducive for her to sleep on. I heard a racket about 2:30 a.m. and got up to discover the ceiling fan above her was so out of balance I feared it was going to shake loose and fall on her. If one is OK with not staying in a more modern chain hotel with newer facilities and amenities, but like the personal touches provided in this quaint retro throwback to the 1940's or 50's, then this place is for you. If that does not sound like you, I suggest you keep reading reviews and go elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect location for a great vacation"
I booked this hotel because of the great reviews I read online, and I was not disappointed. The hotel was built in 1940, so don't expect Marriott quality. However it was clean, comfortable, and had an old style feel that I loved. It is a VERY short walk to Hollywood Beach's boardwalk that is stacked with delicious and very reasonably priced diners, […] ice cream parlor, shops, bars, and of course the beach! The closest diner offers breakfast for only $3.99 which included eggs, sausage or bacon, home style potatoes and pancakes! We made plans to be out on the town every night but we found ourselves drawn to the boardwalk where we ate and hung out on the beach, and when tired our bed was only steps away. The hotel is owned and operated by one person, Karen, and she is extremely helpful and accommodating. The hotel is made up of only about six apartments that surround a beautiful courtyard that includes a small pond full of koi fish and turtles. If you have kids, this would be a perfect location as they can be on the beach and in the water under a minute of walking, and if they get tired the room is close enough to put them down for a nap, and then back to the beach for some fun. If you want the lap of luxury you might want to pass, but if you want convenience, to be relaxed and really enjoy your vacation, book here! I will definitely make this my permanent place to stay anytime I am in the Miami area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fun and relaxed inn, close to beach"
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Angelfish Inn. Rooms are a bit threadbare, but good facities. Has a fish tank and a turtle pool. Manager very friendly and helpfull. Would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent value per money"
Only reason for not giving the maximum score is that door and windows are a bit old. It means that you can hear from your room some noise coming from the other rooms or other houses (and the contrary I assume). Apart from this, the rest is really excellent and I definitely recommend this hotel. Also the location is very good, close to a lot of rest […] aurants. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Older property (but close to beach)"
Regrettably, after having viewed the apartment, we decided not to stay at that location. It is not the worst accomodation we have seen, but we just were not sufficiently comfortable staying there, due to the age of the property and the overall condition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Saw it advertised with high ratings on a number of sites. Reviews were accurate. Lovely quaint place, close to the beach. Very relaxing stay and Karin, terrific hostess. Koi, turtles, and cats help the ambience. If in area would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Brilliant Budget Hotel"
This is everything you could want in a budget hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious, the shower was great and the room even had a small kitchen and massive fridge. Also, the proprietor of this hotel, could not have been more helpful. It is amazing value for money and brilliantly located only 150m/150yds from a great beach. The downsides are that it […] looks tatty from the outside and a bit shabby inside - they have made the best of this and it almost reaches "shabby chic"! But you won't get luxure at that price and for me this was an excellent choice. I will certainly stay there again if in the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"My idea of heaven"
04/13/14 Jenny A Framingham, Massachusetts
I stayed 4 nights and the Angelfish Inn was really beginning to feel like home. Located just half a block from the beach, the Inn also has a lovely patio for relaxing and eating. There are plenty of restaurants (practically on the beach), a couple of convenience stores and a very nice bakery nearby. Karin could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
"Relaxing Beach Pre-Cruise Getaway"
04/10/14 JLATravels11 Batavia, Illinois
We stayed with Karin for 3 nights before our cruise departure, I could not have chosen a better place to begin our vacation. The 1960's kitschy beach vibe of Hollywood in general and Angelfish Inn in particular really appealed to us. Our room was adorable, clean and very quiet. The wonderful courtyard with plenty of seating, the turtle pond, and the family & pet friendly relaxed atmosphere fit us to a "T". We were within walking distance of good food, a fun beach & boardwalk for people watching. This is one of those gems that you return to again and again because you're treated like family, it is NOT your average chain motel/hotel where your dollar is more important that you are. This is a small, quaint, cozy, clean, budget friendly place for families, couples & people who can appreciate the true aura of a great vacation...not caviar & champagne, but adventures around the bend, new friends and a comfortable base of operations to return to at the end of the day.
"Comfy cozy home away from home"
04/04/14 Brenda A
My husband and I stayed here for three days after a cruise and it was the perfect way to end our vacation. We arrived early in the morning and Karin and her staff quickly cleaned our room for us so we could get our bags put away. We had a wonderful porch on our room easy to kick back and enjoy. Room was clean and had everything that we could ask for. Location was second to none the boardwalk was half a block away lots of restaurants,bars and stores. Beach chairs and towels were supplied so we even spent a day on the beach soaking up the sun. Karin did not let us call a cab when we left for the airport but instead drove us herself service above and beyond. Sorry to hear that she has sold the property new owners in May. We will come back to this spot it was perfect. Thanks to Karin, staff and Jinx
"Great Value, even better location!"
04/01/14 sunny0404 St. Paul, Minnesota
My bf and I stayed here for 1 night after a cruise from Miami the first week of March. This hotel is in the perfect location! Just 1/2 a block off the beach boardwalk, we walked to get food, lounge on the beach, people-watch on the boardwalk, and even to the liquor store across the street! The room was like an apartment with a full kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. You even get your own entrance with a house-key! We also had a rental car, so we got one of the few parking spots. The woman who runs the place is such a nice person, and the overall tone of the place is very laid back. We got to check in and out an hour early (not on purpose, daylight savings time and the ships-time had us off-set and she never even mentioned it to us! Just let us do our thing! So if you're reading this: Thanks!!) We only got to stay here for one night, but I would definitely stay here again! The turtle pond is adorable, and the kitty who sits on the back porch area is a sweetheart! There is an area to hang out by the pond, and she even offers beach towels, beach chairs and floatys to bring to the ocean! There is also a washer and dryer available for you to use! We both really enjoyed Hollywood. The beach was beautiful, the atmosphere is relaxed, and everything you need is within walking distance of this hotel. I can see why this small motel receives such high reviews! On our future cruises, and any future stays in the Hollywood area we will certainly be staying here!
"Quick overnight stay"

My daughter and I stayed over night before our flight home. We had to leave at 3:30 am. I really wish we could have stayed longer here. I found this place on trip advisor and was very happy with it. It is very clean, and the staff is so friendly. I LOVE this place!!
"PERFECT PLACE TO STAY"
03/30/14 trudelkev Quebec City, Canada
My boyfriend and I stayed there for 2 days and we will be back for sure. Karin the manager is the nicest Host ever , she updated our room and gave us a whole apartment for the same price. She took well care of us and even gave us coffee and hot chocolate in the morning. The place is well located and if you have a car , in 20 minutes you are on South beach, the hottest place to be ! The place is clean, peaceful and two steps from the beach ! I recommend it all the way!!
"The perfect getaway!"
03/26/14 BeachLover22123 Baltimore, Maryland
We had an amazing time at the Angelfish Inn. We have made budget-friendly choices for lodging in the past and been disappointed, but this place was absolutely perfect and such a great value. The room was cute and very clean, and the location was perfect, steps from the beach and in the center of the boardwalk. You won't miss the amenities of a large hotel (or all the crowds and big price tag) as you relax by the turtle pond in the lush courtyard. This is a family owned business and the owner Karin makes you feel like part of the Angelfish Inn family from the minute you make your reservation. We had some last minute changes and she was able to accommodate them, and she offered to pick us up and drop us off at the airport which made our travel days less stressful. She also gave us candid advice on the best places to eat and things to do. If you have ever wished for a clean, welcoming, relaxing place to stay on a budget then look no further! Four days here was not enough, already dreaming about going back!
"For what it is... it's perfect!"
03/19/14 dylewskier Santa Ana, California
Just spent 5 days at Angelfish Inn and I must say it was an excellent experience. If you are looking for the amenities of a large hotel, this isn't for you. If you like small, quiet, feel like home and comfortable, this is the place. Karin, the Manager was beyond nice, very responsive, answered all my questions before arrival and even drove me to the airport (on the way to her boxing class!) The place is old but very homey. My room was clean and stocked with the essentials. Other than the loud air conditioner it couldn't have been better. Close to the beach, I walked everywhere I needed to go, market on the corner and a nice hot shower. I would highly recommend Angelfish Inn if you're looking for clean, friendly, close to the beach and affordable.
"Disappointment due to housekeeping skills"
03/15/14 Seascape500 Boston, Massachusetts
My husband and I were excited to stay here due to favorable trip advisor reviews. The owner! Karen, was away so we were greeted by Philip, who was very nice. Philip helped carry our luggage into our efficiency apartment and within a few minutes my husband and I were walking the beach which is very close by the inn. After our walk we went to LeTub for a burger, then immediately to a relative's house, in Hollywood, for an evening visit. By the time we arrived back at the inn it was very late and we were very tired. I could not wait for my head to hit the pillow. Unfortunately, the bed was very sandy, which meant the sheets were not changed from the prior guests...YUCK. I went into the living room to call the emergency phone number for after hours and had to leave a message because no one answered. Also, no one ever called me back. In the living room I noticed the navy blue clothed couch was also very sandy which meant it wasn't vacuumed prior to our arrival...YUCK. Since my call into the emergency number for "after hours" I called another phone number I found. This number was for the owner, Karen. Karen was very apologetic, mortified (her word) and promised a refund for our night's stay. Karen assured me that "this is not who we are and what we represent to our guests." She was sorry she was out of town and was not able to inspect the room herself prior to our arrival. Karen placed a call to her house sitter who delivered fresh, clean bed linens to us and my husband and I remade the bed. By the way, during all of this, I also noticed that there were crumbs on the chair pads in the kitchen which meant the housekeeper overlooked that area as well. Luckily, the bathroom was clean so I felt good about washing and showering. However, there was no shampoo for us to use. I felt very badly for Karen and could tell she was indeed sorry for the lack of cleanliness in our unit. I was glad she said she would refund us our night's stay. On a plus note, the inn is located in a great spot, close to the beach and it was a quiet night's stay. Unfortunately, because of unit's lack of cleanliness, I can not recommend this inn to anyone who is looking for cleanliness.
