The maid was awesome. The manager was very nice and helpful. Will be staying there again soon. The location is fabulous. 75 to 125 to the beautiful beach sand. Hided gem on the beach. Meant a few of the guess on the patio and enjoy talking with them.

We recently stayed at the Marlin and had a wonderful visit! It was reasonably priced and the location can't be beat! It's near everything and yet at the less crowded part of Hollywood beach. Cindi with housekeeping was great and all the good reviews of Bernadette are absolutely true. She helped accommodate us with our flight schedule and check in...

Great value, great location, clean rooms, great service. How about this for a novel idea, we got a text from the manager on the day of our arrival telling us when our room would be available and where to park. Do not expect this from a chain hotel. This place is not on the boardwalk but in my mind that...

How happy I was to read a review like this one after the other one I just had to respond to. I'm glad you were happy with the information I provided prior to your arrival and with everything else. The Hollywood "beautification" project is a lil bit of a nuisance. Wish they would move their stuff already. I do hope...

We booked a stay at the Marlin Beachside Hotel after reading many positive reviews and also, because the hotel is rated #1 of 28 B & B Hotels on Hollywood Beach. I will say that the rate for 3 nights, including tax, was $462.00; that should have been our first clue that this deal was too good to be true....

Bernadette R, General Manager at The Marlin Beachside Hotel, responded to this review

This is and certainly was a case of "you just can't please everyone." We are listed on TripAdvisor under B&B/INNS. If she was expecting a bed and breakfast, and read any of our reviews, she would know we aren't. The housekeeper, Cindi, as you can see from other reviews, is thorough or else I wouldn't have her working here. The...

We stayed at the motel and we're very pleased. Location great, quick walk to beach and boardwalk. Rooms are very clean with new linens and blankets. Had bedroom efficiency kitchen and living room. Very spacious and relaxing. Bernadette is very accomadating and Cindi is always right there when needed. Can't wait to return.

This was our fourth time here. We really enjoyed this hotel as it's only 50 feet from the boardwalk and Beach. We need like the nice kitchen and the use of the bicycles. The bathrooms are dated though. We recommend this nice hotel. The manager is very accommodating also.

Overall it was a great stay. We stayed in the King Efficiency Room with a Private Balcony. The pictures look better than the actual room. The floors have a bit of a sandy/dirty feel to them. The bed sheets were very clean and the bathroom was great. The house cleaner doesn't come until the fourth day of your stay unless...

This is a great place to stay. It's clean, comfortable, and right by the beach. Bernadette, the manager, and Cindi, the housekeeper, are wonderful. We had a problem with noisy neighbors and Bernadette took care of it right away. Cindi makes sure you have clean beach towels, bath towels, and will clean your room when needed. We will definitely stay...

We had a nice stay at the Marlin Beachside. However, this hotel is not for everyone. The fabulous: - Location - one short block to the beach, right on the broadwalk.

Came for a soccer tournament with my grandson. This is a cute, deco motel. Free parking in front of the room, free wifi that worked well, free use of bikes to ride along the boardwalk. A minute to the beach, short walk to great places to eat. And affordable. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marlin Beachside Hotel is a peaceful, quaint, art deco style hotel, set back just enough for privacy but steps away from the pristine Atlantic Ocean and one of the countries top 10 rated boardwalks (although we call it the Broadwalk). Walk or ride down the Broadwalk on one of our bicycles provided free to our guests and enjoy oceanfront restaurants, bars, ice cream or listen to one of Hollywood's local bands from Weds-Saturday night at the bandstand. Feel like hitching a ride into downtown Hollywood, where you'll find even more Hollywood has to offer? Well, the Hollywood Trolley can help you do that with stops by the hotel, all for only $1. Conveniently located 15 minutes from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades Cruise Port. Great seasonal and summer rates available!!! ... more   less
