We stayed here a year or so ago and had a great time! I booked a room 2 months ago, and when we arrived we were told our room is "under construction". We booked this specific room because it's the only one with a balcony. It was our wedding anniversary and we were looking forward being right on the beach....

CONS: The Hotel is undergoing a major renovation. The room we booked was intercoastal/city view and the view was of a parking garage demolition and the roofs of other buildings. There was wires strung across door frames, torn up lamp shades, peeling paint and the floor was horribly filthy. The staff at the Front Desk was a "warm Body" to...

The Hotel Sheldon is a "no frills" hotel right on the Hollywood Boardwalk - You can not beat the ocean view from the hotel.... The hotel does not offer lots of amenities and it doesn't need to....its location is worth more than any of the other frills that other places might have... The rooms are simple - very simple... Why?...

She said NO...asked about AAA rates...she said none...asked if there was a possibility for an early check in...she said yes...for $10/hour prior to check in time... What??? Asked if...

This hotel was my worst nightmare! The rooms are nasty/not clean! Hair in the bed,hair in the bathroom, bugs under the bed, trash left in the rooms! When we asked why all that stuff was left there. Their response was, "you guys did it". How immature of them, this hotel is a wreck! The ceilings look as if you are...

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Sheldon for 4 nights. We stayed in one of the Oceanfront rooms with a balcony, I would highly recommend one of these 2 rooms if available. The hotel is basic, clean, at the location on the boardwalk was great. And we found the staff to be friendly and accomadating. We found a...

If you stay here, you have to ask for the renovated rooms. They are not the best in the city, but the best if you must stay right on the beach. Comfy, good AC and large shower. All in all , I will return here again.

Location of this resort is perfect..directly on the broad walk and steps from tons of restaurants and bars. You do get what you pay for though, and for such little money directly on the beach, you are paying for location but not necessarily the best room. Our room was not facing the ocean, so very inexpensive, but did feel like...

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Sheldon on March 26-April1, 2013. It is a older hotel, but it was so clean. There is some remodeling going on. Brenda at the front desk (and it is a desk in the front) was fantastic. Nothing fancy, but very clean. Broadwalk is right outside hotel doors and there are so many...

I am an advid Trip Advisor user.
