I had only one night to spend on a whirlwind trip to Ft. Lauderdale, wanted to avoid a large chain hotel and wanted to enjoy a walk along the beach. This motel is perfectly located along the boardwalk and the beach. I get grossed out by motels / hotels in general, so cleanliness is paramount for me -- Walkabout fit...

This motel is AMAZING!!!!!!! It is in the right spot for all the stores and restaurants. It is even away from a lot of the hussel and bussel of the boardwalk. I was little nervous because our room was right outside the bar but once you closed the door you couldn't hear anything! Gina in the office was such a...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. The location is perfect as the beach is right out front. Cute tiki bar for drinks. The room was clean and like a little beach house, much better than a big chain hotel. Many restaurant choices along the broadwalk so no need for a car. Highly...

Arrived at 10am and despite a 3pm check-in, Sherry greeted my wife and I and took us straight to our room, #5. Early check-ins are wonderful and Sherry was super nice. The room was as advertised. Clean, comfy and spacious with a million dollar view. Doesn't have the upgrades other high end chains do, but your paying for the location....

My wife and I were spending a few days in South Florida before our daughter's graduation and our hotel in South Beach did not have availability for the first night so I made arrangements a tteh WalkAbout.

Third time we have stayed at the Walkabout in the last three years. Ideally located along the Hollywood boardwalk so the beach is just a few steps away. Rooms are well decorated and have everything you need for an extended getaway. Tiki bar is great. Only slight downside is the bathrooms are dated. Will be back next year.

We went as a family for Spring Break for six nights. It is a very tranquil setting. It sits right on the beach, so you must like sand! There are a lot of nice shops and restaurants along the broadwalk. The tiki bar right at the bottom of the steps is a nice touch. It is a bit older, but...

We have greatly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful boutique hotel, located at the less crowded part of Hollywood Beach. We just loved to walk out the door barefeet, kids could safely play on the Beach. Restaurants are on strolling distance. Safe carbparking inside neighboring Mariott hotel.

We were there for four days and enjoyed every minute. The rooms are a great size and the staff was very helpful. We had a fantastic view of the beach and enjoyed daily walks on the boardwalk. It felt like we had our own little bungalow by the beach. Lots of choices on the boardwalk for eating and a small...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The WalkAbout Beach Resort is a cozy family-owned and operated hotel located ON THE BROADWALK in Hollywood Beach, Florida. Our boutique, 8-room hotel was built in 1950, and it is one of the last remaining beachfront hotels designed in the Art Deco style.Our guests enjoy a wide array of amenities that include: ocean front rooms, a large tiki bar in our courtyard, seating alongside the Hollywood broadwalk, scenic views of the beach, nearby shops and restaurants, free wifi, free cable, on-site washer/dryer, live music, and fresh linens daily. Our staff is extremely friendly and professional, and we are always nearby to assist with any special requests. Hollywood Beach is one of the premier beach destinations in the world. The city provides twenty-one lifeguard towers and eight first-aid stations. An icon of Art Moderne architecture on Hollywood Beach’s famed Broadwalk, The Walkabout Beach Resort, is a classic 1940’s boutique hotel. Those who have visited claim it has the perfect blend of characteristics: chic, warm and inviting, glamorous, and tastefully modernized.To experience The Walkabout Beach Resort, is to experience Hollywood Beach at its best. In keeping with its classic style, eight oceanfront guest rooms are immaculately styled with the elegance of another era – wooden and terrazzo floors, interiors with rich textures, soft pink monochromatic colors, and decorations with a nod to its illustrious past mark the furnishings. Each room is adorned with vintage black and white photographs cataloguing Hollywood’s social history dating back to the 1920’s. When you stay at The Walkabout, discover its delightful Art Moderne ambiance and see how its past has been preserved to its original beauty. The Walkabout is known for its remarkable beachfront setting and legendary Hollywood Beach, Florida hotel location - on the Broadwalk. Named one of America's best beach Broadwalks by Travel + Leisure, the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is more than 2 miles long, sizzling with energy that embodies the diversity Hollywood Beach stands for - bustling sidewalk cafes, unique shops, multi-hued streamline Art Moderne buildings, and unforgettable ocean views. Step out from the Broadwalk and spend the day settled on white sands, by a glistening ocean on one of South Florida’s most beautiful beaches. Still, the most popular pastime on the beach is simply savoring the charming character of this truly unique setting, so reserve a day for relaxing to the sound of soothing waves. ... more   less
