Stayed here for one night...we were lucky to get in after a bad experience in another hotel further down the beach. This place is a gem. It is a small hotel from the 1940's like most of the "boutique" hotels along the Broadwalk. This one is very clean and updated as much as possible (we were told there are limits...

Pleasantly surprised ! Very clean with splashes of color in the interior decorating bringing the jewel up to date. Right on the beach with the use of beach chairs available. Tiki bar in the middle of the complex overlooking the ocean and boardwalk. We would definitely stay here again! The only downside was the lighting in our unit was poor...

This is more like an apartment rental than a hotel but it was great. Right on the beach, you could not get any closer without swimming. Right next to a big upscale hotel chain, they are happy to let you eat there. Walk down the boardwalk to the right (south), you can buy beach stuff, eat food, anything that you...

I'll start with the good. The location is perfect, you can walk to the busier part of the beach where the attractions are but relax in the quieter part with a tiki bar. For a $1 trollie you can go to downtown Hollywood. The people at the front desk were very helpful. The lady that cleaned our room was very...

Everything was perfect...kids had some freedom due to the layout of the rooms and beach I was able to keep my eye on them without being joined at the hip. Loved the tiki bar, broadwalk, beach is so clean. Heidi, Amy and Sherry make you feel right at home.

6 of us stayed in 3 rooms for 3 nights prior to a cruise. Reading the reviews I didn't think it could be so perfect, It lived up to all expectations.If you have large cases and not fit have a ground floor room.

What a lovely place, views - spectacular. Rooms, lovely - spacious and clean. We stayed in room 4 which is ground floor literally steps from the beach. Then moved to room 2 as we extended out stay and it was a smaller studio but again - lovely. Microwave/ coffee maker/free parking/free wifi - you could do with a car if...

Loved the Walkabout! Perfect location for restaurants and beach. In one word the staff is FABULOUS! Will be going back to this gem of a resort. The suite/apartment we had was perfect. Loved having the Tiki Bar for a quick refreshment.

Stayed here with a large group of 13 right after christmas for 5 nights. The service is outstanding. Heidi and Mary treated us like family at the Tiki bar and Sherry made sure we had everything we needed for our room. My teenage daughters loved the hotel and have already asked when we could go back.

We stayed in room 1 from 12/26-12/31. This is our second time staying here- first time was in 11/09. The location is perfect. Having the tiki bar there is lots of fun! I stayed with my 2 kids but my parents and extended family stayed in other rooms. We all could meet at the tiki bar and the kids could...

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
