Like most of the other reviews, great location and good price. All the other newer places nearby are almost double the price.
Right in the heart of the busy Hollywood Beach broadwalk. (not boardwalk).
The rooms overlook the walk and the beach. Beautiful sunrise views from the room.
Many restaurants and shops with in walking distance. That being said, things can stay noisy on the broadwalk into the wee hours, especially on a Sat. and Sun.
Large and very clean rooms. The kitchenette with Stove, Sink, MW, Fridge, Dishes were nice if you want cook. The Hollywood beach trolley provides access along the beach front and to Downtown for $1 a ride. The main stop is at the info center next to Margaritaville.
There are definitely some things that need repairs or a good coat of paint. The bed platform corners stick out several inches past the mattress and are real knee bangers.
My biggest complaint is the smoking. The rooms are non smoking so everyone goes out on the balcony to smoke.. For all the rooms, there is one long upper shared balcony, with a central stairs to go down, and lower shared balcony/terrace fronting the beach. There was always someone out there smoking and if you are non smoker, you have to go back in the room and shut the door. Always a pile of stinking butts in the containers on the balconies.
The hotel is old FL style. Along with a lot of the other "unique" accommodations around, the area seems to draw the old school FL visitors. It's been a long time since I've seen that many over tanned/wrinkled people smoking and sunning their way to an early demise.
