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. Loved this location - we went everywhere from the hotel, never needing a cab or a car. - Staff - very friendly, inviting and helpful. - They offer bikes,...

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.

My finance and I have been here for two months while our condo was being renovated a few miles away from here. I can't believe a person finicky as myself can only speak their praises. Leaving next Friday will be a sad occasion since the staff here makes you feel like family. Did I mention they really don't hassle or...

I booked a room at The Marlin Beachside Hotel based on previous posted reviews. I loved that it was an older privately owned property. All I can say is do not take Room 9. It was very below the standard of the websites posted photos. I do not expect the Ritz, after all , this place has free parking and...

It's not often we get a low score from a guest so I definitely want to address the review and do it quickly. I don't like reading that a guest was this unhappy in a room here. I have to check the dates of when they were here but quite recently, we have completely painted this room, addressed some plumbing...

For the money, it was a good deal. Very close to the beach, about a 30 second walk. And, the staff was friendly and very helpful. I am planning a trip for next year and I will stay at the Marlin Beachside Motel.

Steps from the Hollywood Boardwalk and ocean, this is a fantastic place to stay. We stayed in room #2, more like a small apartment than a room, you could stand in the front doorway and see the ocean. Featuring a living room, small kitchen, bedroom and bathroom this was a great place to spend the week. Well cared for but...

It is difficult to find a pet friendly hotel in this area. The Marlin Beachside is pet friendly. Location is fantastic, just a short walk to the beach and ocean. Shopping, etc. within 5-10 miles for convenience. Friendly personnel. Great service, good location. Stayed here while our condo was being renovated. Next best thing to being there.

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
