HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 June 2016

We enjoyed our stay at the Riptide Hotel, we really wanted a place that was right on the beach and the Riptide lived up to our expectations. Daily live music ( not too loud ) good drinks and very helpful staff. We took full advantage of being right on the Hollywood board walk where there is tons of restaurants and... More

We stayed in room #8. It has an amazing view. Room is smaller than expected but worked well for us. I was bummed that the front windows wouldn't open so I could listen to the waves at night. We loved that we could walk barefoot across the Boardwalk to the beach. The ladies at the bar and front desk were... More

We had a great time. Everyone had fun. We celebrated my daughter's 17th BDay with her friends. It was super convenient to the boardwalk, and the beach. The room was really clean. The kitchen appliances, the bathroom.

Great location on your door and in just few steps and you are in the sand. The live music at tiki bar was great. We would definitely stay there again. Small kitchen with the basics to get you through your stay.

Great location; friendly staff; small but cute room, basic. Basic kitchen which helped. Minor issues. Floor was very gritty and dirty upon arrival, which was unpleasant. I had to mop it myself with some wet towels. Was wonderful to have access to bikes every day. Will be on our list of places to return!

I just returned from a relaxing 5 days, all sunny and gorgeous, at the Riptide Hotel. I really enjoyed how friendly and attentive all the staff were! I had a very comfy, clean room with a great view of the boardwalk and the ocean (walk to beach is 50 feet!). The kitchenette was complete with dishes & utensils, a 2-burner... More

Great late check in system (make sure the hotel has your email address) - rooms are more like apartments with separate well equipped kitchens - in fact the room has everything you need, a free safe, wifi, iron, toaster full size cooker and fridge etc. Located right on the boardwalk with great views and sounds of the ocean. Parking is... More

Very close to the beach, but a very old place with a bad smell inside the room. We were out of hot water in the shower many times during our stay. The hotel has bikes for free. It's in a very touristic area with many not so good restaurants.
