The Good Outweighed the Bad

Posted Apr 29, 2015
Pros: The Beach right outside the door!
Cons: better housekeeping
Location: wonderful location, beach is right there
We were given a room with (what seemed like) everyone's A/C generator outside the window with an engine noise that appeared was going to go all night, but as we went to go to bed, we found several hairs under the blanket on the sheets and pillowcases. The Hotel Clerk was excellent. Moved us to a new room immediately and apologized.... But none of that mattered once we stepped out of the hotel lobby right into the beach. It was amazingly beautiful and awesome!

Very Good Hotel and Location

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: Location and quietness.
Location: Near beach and broadwalk, near shops, restaurants and other places to visit.
Location is wonderful, right on the broadwalk and the beach with lots of shops and restaurants, etc., nearby. The hotel staff is very helpful and efficient, room quiet and clean. I would stay there again.

Great Location!

Posted Apr 19, 2015
Pros: Staff, location, free use of beach supplies, free coffee
Cons: The door to our room was cut too short so there was a very large gap. Only matter at night when we could hear people in the lobby and outside our door
Location: Beach right out front door, great coffee shop, frozen yogurt and restaurant within feet of the front door. Boardwalk has bike rentals + Much more
We were looking for a place to stay on the ocean for a few days before our cruise. So many hotels in the area were far from the water or they were outrageous in price. We found this gem and loved it. Right on the beach and a great board walk with everything you need within walking distance. Cost us $14 to take an Uber from the airport and didn't need a car for anything. The hotel staff were very friendly easy fast check in and they knew all the hot spots for great food. They even supplied chairs, towels and umbrella for our day at the beach at no charge! This is a very old hotel with lots of history and they did a great job of updating it. If you are looking for a great small place with character right on the beach this hotel is great. Be sure and ask for a room that is not right off the lobby there is an echo in the lobby so at night it can be a little noisy. We even rented bikes from a place just south of the hotel for $10 and had a great time riding up and down the boardwalk. I would go back for sure!

Very poor condition, dirty, no hotel services.

Posted Mar 26, 2015
Horrible experience. The only thing good is the location. Rooms are dirty, poorly appointed, and there is no "front desk" - only a guy at a tiny table (from somewhere like Walmart) with a laptop. We had booked 4 nights, but we cancelled the remaining 3. Awful place!

Hotel Sheldon

Posted Mar 25, 2015
Pros: The location
Cons: Updating the interior and better parking
Location: Every and anything to do on the beach
The hotel was on the beach which was great. However, there is alot of construction going on and navigating around the surrounding area is difficult. Parking was also not great. The hotel appears to be in the process of updating it's interior areas.

Great hotel, right on the beach!

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: Location, location, location! Right on the beach.
Cons: The air conditioning unit is very noisy.
Location: Hollywood Beach is wonderful. The Broadwalk has everything. Food is nearby and so is entertainment. The beach is among the best ever.
We enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the amenities offered (chairs, umbrellas, towels). The hotel was clean and comfortable. Parking was great, especially with how busy the area is. Staff is phenomenal. Our room was cleaned daily and the staff was always willing to go the extra mile. We would definitely stay again.

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Pros: Location, location, location. There during spring break but beach not crowded and calm.
Cons: Readiness and follow through on promises.
Location: Beach was great. Lots of restaurants of all kinds. Cute shops.
We were promised things that did not come through. We arrived early so understandable that it was not ready. But even with checking regularly still not ready after checkin time by an hour when we were given different room. Called ahead of time about late check out and told to arrange upon arrival. Tried when we got there and throughout our stay and could not help us. Beach mats were frayed and dangerous. Only one lounge chair for the beach, all others were upright uncomfortable chairs. Rooms very clean. Large shower but no tub. Best thing-LOCATION. Beach within steps of front door.

Location and View was excellent.

Posted Mar 18, 2015
Pros: Quiet, neat, friendly, personnel were respectful and polite and very helpful.
Cons: Indoor eatery would be nice, maybe include continental breakfast. Hand rails at ocean side door and outside seating with awning or umbrella .
Location: Boardwalk right out front. Ocean right out front. Couldn't get any better than that. Does not have shuttle service ,need to arrange own transportation
Pleasant stay. Friendly staff. Clean thru out. Staff very helpful. Room a little on the small side. Needs more electrical outlets and some type of shelving and hand bars for the tiny bathroom. Staff very receptive to suggestions. Did enjoy the time there.
