Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port
Travel Blogs from Hollywood
As we left Orlando we called in for Krispy Creams which is the breakfast of champions lol There was way too many to pick from so we got six to munch on during our drive to Fort Lauderdale. We noticed that each water way/dam has security fencing around to keep the gators out. I so couldn't live here for that reason alone. Along the way we stopped at …
... AC but hey after what we have come from. Whole thing a little hotely for us but free and a good change. Informed at check in at 1925 that welcome drinks with the manager finish at 1930. Not sure what drives human nature to rush to the room dump luggage and run to the bar to get a free cocktail and sit with a load of other freeloaders and no site of the ...
I just wanted to post one last little thing to kind of wrap up this trip, kind of reflect on it and maybe add a few things that I may have forgotten. One of the main things I forgot to mention and it's probably not of much interest to most people, but it surprised me how many American cars I saw on my trip. Specifically Chevys and Fords. I even saw a Cadillac which absolutely amazed me because I didn't think I'd ever see one in Europe.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port
My letter to RCI and Ramada about my vacation says it all: "Dear Sir/Madam:I want to inform you, in writing, of the unsafe, hazardous and frightening experience me and my son had at the above referenced resort and date. For your information, I am an Emergency Room Nurse and I was vacationing alone my 22 month old son, Danny. This is a Ramada Resort, which I thought would be okay.The parking was attached to a building that was being knocked down. See attached photo of not only the View from my room but you can see all the demolition going on.
You gotta be kidding me!!
This hotel was nothing like the picture. Once me and my best friend arrived, we couldnt even see the hotel for all the construction. The customer service was terrible. They didnt even want to fix anything.
The window in our room was broken the wind blew it all night long, the floor was slippery from it being ceramic tile...no carpet whatsoever.
The ceiling in the bathroom leaked, there was no hot water. We asked for two beds, they gave us a bed and a futon. The hotel looks deserted, there was more space in there for lease then there was actual things to do. The conceirge was no good, he doesnt tell you things to do until the night before you check out and then you get your package. My recommendation is do not stay in Hollywood Beach there is nothing to do.
Great Beach Location!
Pool area nice and very clean, attendants very helpful and courteous.
Pool lighted nicely at night but closed at 8:00 pm.
Rooms: smallest ever stayed in except for cruise ship! Virtually no view. A/C noisy, power shortages for short periods, noisy due to maintenace and renovations.
Concierge very helpful going out of their way to accomodate and assist multiple times.
Parking is a daily expense.
Can see true potential of hotel when all renovations are completed!
Very nice with the best location!
Continental breakfast was more than expected and very good.
We got a great deal and would absolutely do it again!!!
The location, right on the beach and the broadwalk is great, and the price is right. There is no doubt about it, it is an old property, built in the 20's, but there is alot of history about it; built of imported Belgium brick,I understand it was the only building in the area to survive the great hurricane of '29! It is true the rooms are not gigantic, but we don't spend much time in the room anyway. Not many of the maids speak English, however when not enough towels were available, or a light bulb was burned out, I left a note in the room about it for the maid on my way out to the beach, and when I returned it was taken care of. There are good, inexpensive, restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.All in all, a good place to stay for someone on a budget. I will go there again.
Great Place-- right on the beach
I read the reviews and I am glad I went to experience the place for myself. I had absolutely no problems, the room was recently renovated, the breakfast in Club Atlantic was great and O'Malley's Ocean Pub served the best seafood I have ever had. I strongely recommend this place to anyone.
The staff was great, especially John & Debbie at the pool. The hotel has a great pool just steps from the beach.
"Beautiful location at a great price"
The location is spectacular. It has everything you need right there. The employees were very friendly and helpful. You have the beach steps away, and if you would rather sit by the pool they have that too. It was not a "busy, tourist" area when we went in early May, which was nice. The restaurant / bar "O'Malley's" was great, there was good food and entertainment every night. It is an old hotel, but that added to the atmosphere. It was clean and the kitchenette was very convenient. I would recommend this hotel for it's price, service, and accomodations.
My girlfriend and I stayed here in Spring 2002 for 4 nights. The pictures made it look kind of nice, but in reality it is very run-down. Surprised that a condominium/rental complex is in this kind of shape.We did not experience any major issues, but in general was not even worth the relatively affordable price for this area of florida. We did like the location being right on boardwalk,etc. However, the front desk was rude and lucky if they even spoke english! plus the kitchenette consisted of a tiny fridge, a tiny microwave, a couple dishes, and the general feeling you were staying in a firetrap did not help. Beware...
Brought kids (ages 11,7,4) They were approached by a woman who attempted to send them off searching for a lost piece of jewelery and offered them $100.00. The hotel smelt like urine. The main bathrooms were locked. The restaurant in the hotel had been closed down a week earlier. The ceilings and walls were in decay with plaster falling off and stained. The tub was stained. We awoke with the electricity off on our last day and were unable to take showers because there was no hot water. It was the worst lodging I have ever had. Never again.
Worst ever customer service
Bar none. Absolutely the worst customer service in travel I've ever dealt with. Hotel refused to honor printed, confirmed and held by credit card reservation rate. Refused to let me speak with a manager.
Then, to beat all, refused to honor rate after Ramada corporate headquarters called and told them to honor it.
Terrible, terrible, terrible. Will never deal with Ramada again. I realize this is a franchise, but they were awful. DO NOT STAY HERE.
The room we had did not feel clean. The bathtub did not drain. Even though it was obvious two adults were occupying the room, the maid service left only one bath towel.
Some of the folks arriving looked like they were reserving a room for an hour - one "lady's" dress was open to the waist with no underwear visible. When she turned around, the dress was split to the waist - again with no underwear visible - three small gold chains.
We we totally unhappy with this resort. It is a disgrace to both the Ramada and the RCI names.
