This looks good and fun at first sight but Be careful here it is not what it appears. Really substandard . Watered down drinks your good if you drink beer in a bottle all others your being ripped off by a very nasty female bartender.

My husband and I stayed at the Riptide twice, both times the night before a cruise. This was a perfect location not too far from both the airport and the cruise port. With the beach just steps away and with a wonderful boardwalk, this was the perfect place. We will continue to stay here whenever we cruise out of Ft....

Best location directly on the beach. We had 2 rooms connecting through inside stairs. The view from the room was on the ocean. Even though there is no pool, you can always step in the ocean. Best value for your money.

Just stayed for the first time at this beachfront hotel. If you are looking for luxury this is probably not your best pick. However, if you want a clean, comfortable place to stay in an ideal location on the boardwalk then this is an ideal choice. More importantly is the way the staff treats their guests. We had some minor...

This was the worst experience I have ever had at a hotel. We had a flight delay because of storms and arrived after 9pm. No ONE was working at the hotel. My friend called the office number and emergency number (my phone died) and no one ever responded to us. We were stranded in Hollywood. Then we had to find...

We booked this hotel for a post-cruise, night. We arrived early and the rooms were not ready, but they kept our luggage so we could start exploring right away. I had booked the hotel because the website had said there was a Restaurant on the site, but there was none. Only a great little Tiki Bar with live music. The...

This is a smallish hotel. nothing fancy, but great!! Our room had a kitchenette! good space, stepped right outside onto the terrace for food and drinks and the Broadwalk right on the beach! We will definitely be back to the Riptide! Truly love this place!!!

The tiki bar is a fun place right on the beach. The bartenders, Raven and Christie, and the barback, Jose, give great service with a smile.. They do a great job of keeping everybody happy. Live music is the icing on the cake. Will definitely go back.

Cheaper the longer you stay ask for weekly rates. Room # 21 priceless. Right on the boardwalk great places to eat 5 min walk away. Free chairs and bikes to use at no cost. Nice place to unwind and relax. Close to water taxis. Night life is also slot off fun.

Hotel Staff were pleasant and helpful. Hotel is location is awesome. Takes 10 seconds to walk to beach. Music was great each day and evening. Hotel bathroom was very small and the rooms and beds are runned down compared to a 4 or 5 star hotel. It is a beach hotel and a reasonable price. Consider that when booking the...
