Took A Last Minute ChancePosted Jan 31, 2015
Pros: By sure luck, I was able to book at the last minute, but I suppose it makes sense being that people wouldn't want to stay at this Hotel.
Cons: Communication, Honesty, Courteousness, Decor, Respect - Once you book, they leave you to yourself with trails blazing.
Location: Riptide Oceanfront Hotel (local to happening areas, drinking, eating etc.) is in the vicinity and by all means PLEASE book at another establishment!
I had to book a "hotel" at the last minute due to a flight delay (weather conditions up north called for stoppage of traveling to ensure safety). They promise 24 hour communication but aren't able to discuss a dispute with over-paying fees and circumstances. I've left many messages and they haven't returned my phone call when I had to take car service to the air port in the morning. If you call their number, 954 923-8020, they most likely will NOT pick up their phone. With their voice mail system, when leaving a message, when it comes to speaking about a monetary manner or an issue, they FAIL to get back to you. They essentially avoided talking to me and took close to $300 extra dollars. Their site/location is equivalent to a shanty, dilapidated area. The rooms smell odd. The decor is out of date and cheap. This overall was the most negative out of any hotel, air B n' B or motel experiences that I've dealt with... Please, avoid like the plague...Better off sleeping at an airport or even the streets...

BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE!Posted Jan 30, 2015
Pros: We liked that it was very close to the beach, however you can book rooms for 80 a night at Hollywood beach suites and hostel, which are very clean!!
Cons: Business practice and customer service. The manager and staff were not surprised about our compliant about the room. It is not a very fair hotel.
Good reviews and Bad reviews...yes this place has both good rooms and bad rooms. OUR EXPERIENCE: Booked a "STUDIO" room. Pictures were very nice, inviting and clean. We checked in, went to our room and it was simply filthy. Stains everywhere even on bedding, pillows, and towels, sticky floors, and visible lack of maintenance overall. Its not a place to relax because every step you take and anything you decide to use is sticky or broken. It was simply dirty. Complained to management and they were actually not surprised about our complaint and simply gave us an "upgraded room." I think if they can get away with people who will suck it up and stay in the filth, they will. So stick up for yourself! I am disappointed that I bought their service! NEW ROOM 310: Very comfortable and spacious, but still not very clean. Mildew stains and mold are very visible. This room was in another building by the pool, much like the photo advertised. INFO: There are multiple buildings separately named that make up the "hotels." There will be a parking pass issued for their lots they have on site.

Need to rethinkPosted Jan 30, 2015
Cons: Everything except the towels
Location: Central locarion but right on a pretty busy street
It was cheap. Towels were good. Parking ($10 extra) was good. This is a dilapidated motel. An example. The window blinds had obviously been thru Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and did not survive. The place was unbelievably in need of a major renovation. Not dirty but no maintenance for 30 years? We have to return to the area many times in the next few months but will pay whatever it takes to get a decent room somewhere else.
