What a welcome. How many times do you get greeted in a hotel with a hug? It was a first for me! : ) Tammie is a wonderful warm hostess. She made us feel welcomed from beginning to end. The location of the hotel is perfect two minutes from the beach. The room was very clean, cozy and comfortable. We...

We had two airline tickets we had to use before the end of the year and little money for extras. The Caroline turned out to be our 'pot of gold' at the end of a rainbow. The previous reviewers are right on. Tammie is a sweetheart to say the least. We also found 'out of this world' restaurants that were...

What a gem! I had been searching for places to stay on Hollywood Beach & found TripAdvisor to be the best source of information available. Trying to find a nice place was made easier by the reviews of folks who have stayed here in the past, and they were all positive reviews, I called Tammi & she was such a...

10/14/08 We booked The Caroline for 1 night as we were passing through after searching the internet. The rooms are a short walk to the ocean boardwalk with shops and places eat as far as you would like to walk. The staff is friendly and the rooms are cozy with a small kitchen that could be useful if you are...

We have been vacationing in Hollywood, Fla. for quite a few years now. My husband and I are both retired and spend 5 to 6 weeks there. Last year we stayed at The Caroline-Ocean Beach Hotel. We chose a room with a double bed, private bathroom and a kitchenette. All the rooms have been remodeled and are kept emaculate by...

I love this place! The staff is outstanding and what a great location. Can't beat the rate too. This will be my number one place to stay in the Ft. Lauderdale area from now on.

Ok. I don't know where to start. First, let me start by saying I never write reviews or anything like that. I somehow came across this hotel when I was looking for a place to stay in Hollywood, FL for a convention. I was told that I could find a better deal than in Fort Lauderdale and that it was...

I had several clients meet me in the Hollywood Area for a conference on search engine strategies. We chose "The Caroline" after talking to the friendly staff over the phone and seeing pictures on the website of the rooms. We were very impressed when we got there. The area of Hollywood Beach offers great views, clean beaches, and a lot...
