Upon arrival, we were given a parking pass and treated very kindly by front desk staff. I did immediately notice that the front area is stuck between looking old and run down and dingy to "maybe" in the process of renovation. We were told we had an ocean view- and yes we did see a tiny spot of ocean in...

Standard hotel room. Small dorm fridge and coffee maker in room. no microwave. Have to ask for a hair dryer or ironing board. Bathroom is very small with no shelving- not even in the shower. absolutely no where to put your stuff except a hook on the back of the door. The closet rod was 6.5 feet off the floor!...

My book club recently returned from a 3-day trip to Hollywood, FL, where we stayed at the Hotel Sheldon. Back in Sept., 2014 we reserved two rooms for four women, each with two double beds and a partial ocean view. When we arrived at check-in time in Feb. 2015, we got one room on the 3rd floor with a king...

My husband and I stayed at the Sheldon for a couple of days and I was disappointed with it. Several reviews I read were positive enough to entice us to save the extra $200 per night that the Crowne Plaza would have cost. The hotel is "newly" renovated using the cheapest materials possible in the worst taste! These are already...

We have stayed a handful of times before and this time chose to bring our children for a family vacation over their 4 day weekend. We have seen this place improve greatly through the remodel but what remains the same is the staff, the manager, Javier, and his desk clerks and maintenance person we recognize trip after trip there over...

We just came back home after a week here to escape the cold weather. I found the hotel online which means you never know exactly what to expect. This hotel is an amazing find !

This is a small, remodeled hotel, the rooms are nice. It's quiet, unlike many of the Boardwalk hotels. Staff is nice, maid service great. (Tips help). The hotel has only two balcony rooms, but if you can get these, you will have a guaranteed BLAST! The other rooms have good views too. Very secure lobby; we felt very safe. Walk...

We decided to spend a night here after a cruise - I had spoken to an employee of the hotel months prior and had decided to book a room with a king size bed and a view of the intercostal waters. (Thought this would be enjoyable watching the ships) Hotel also offered free wifi and parking. Upon our arrival we...

Last minute find but what a gem! Literally steps from the beach. Floor walkways leave much to be desired but rooms are just fine. Recent remodel. Friendly staff. Free parking. Free Wi-Fi. So many eateries steps away.
