This time last year we had a fabulous stay and upon returning this year we were not disappointed. Sherrie and her daughter's were fabulous and veronica was great too. The only reason i gave them 4 stars instead of 5 is they need to update the bathrooms.

I was floored by how nice this resort was and how welcome I felt. When I arrived, I was greeted like an old friend and the staff bent over backwards to make sure I started enjoying myself immediately. The room was huge and had a classic beach feel, though it was not run down in any fashion. The presence of...

This was the second time I stayed here. Great location, right on the beach and close to lots of restaurants. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Victoria is the manager and she does everything possible to make your trip special. Sherry is the housekeeper and also is very friendly and helpful. I look forward to my next stay.

We really enjoyed our stay this weekend. The staff is awesome and cheerfully accommodated our late checkout which gave us an extra and needed day of r&r. The only place we stay in Hollywood Beach! Rooms were cozy and clean. The new look is great.

I've been going to Hollywood Beach for the past 5 years. The beaches are beautiful and clean. The Broadwalk is a huge plus, no car needed. However, this year was my first stay at the WalkAbout, as the prior property we stayed at has gone downhill and in need of major repairs. The staff, and Veronica, very friendly, very helpful,...

Wonderful. The location is great. The Tiki Bar is steps from every room. The beach is right in front of you and it is only steps away. The rooms are very clean. The biggest asset is the staff. They are very friendly and very attentive. I highly recommend the WalkAbout Hollywood FL. My husband and I make it an yearly...

Kudos to Veronica who manages this wonderful boutique hotel. Clean inside and out with everything you need. The staff is very friendly and the tiki bar is a bonus. Located on the Hollywood Broadwalk, so convenient to the beach and restaurants. Won't hesitate to stay here again. Really like the change from pink to white & pistachio paint!

We stopped here for one night and ended up staying 4 nights. Prime season so it was a little expensive we loved it. Sets right n the boardwalk with amazing views of the water. Small boutique hotel with only 8 rooms. Newly renovated and everything is white shabby chic which I absolutely love that. There is even a little tiki...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The WalkAbout Beach Resort is a cozy family-owned and operated hotel located ON THE BROADWALK in Hollywood Beach, Florida. Our boutique, 8-room hotel was built in 1950, and it is one of the last remaining beachfront hotels designed in the Art Deco style.Our guests enjoy a wide array of amenities that include: ocean front rooms, a large tiki bar in our courtyard, seating alongside the Hollywood broadwalk, scenic views of the beach, nearby shops and restaurants, free wifi, free cable, on-site washer/dryer, live music, and fresh linens daily. Our staff is extremely friendly and professional, and we are always nearby to assist with any special requests. Hollywood Beach is one of the premier beach destinations in the world. The city provides twenty-one lifeguard towers and eight first-aid stations. An icon of Art Moderne architecture on Hollywood Beach’s famed Broadwalk, The Walkabout Beach Resort, is a classic 1940’s boutique hotel. Those who have visited claim it has the perfect blend of characteristics: chic, warm and inviting, glamorous, and tastefully modernized.To experience The Walkabout Beach Resort, is to experience Hollywood Beach at its best. In keeping with its classic style, eight oceanfront guest rooms are immaculately styled with the elegance of another era – wooden and terrazzo floors, interiors with rich textures, soft pink monochromatic colors, and decorations with a nod to its illustrious past mark the furnishings. Each room is adorned with vintage black and white photographs cataloguing Hollywood’s social history dating back to the 1920’s. When you stay at The Walkabout, discover its delightful Art Moderne ambiance and see how its past has been preserved to its original beauty. The Walkabout is known for its remarkable beachfront setting and legendary Hollywood Beach, Florida hotel location - on the Broadwalk. Named one of America's best beach Broadwalks by Travel + Leisure, the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is more than 2 miles long, sizzling with energy that embodies the diversity Hollywood Beach stands for - bustling sidewalk cafes, unique shops, multi-hued streamline Art Moderne buildings, and unforgettable ocean views. Step out from the Broadwalk and spend the day settled on white sands, by a glistening ocean on one of South Florida’s most beautiful beaches. Still, the most popular pastime on the beach is simply savoring the charming character of this truly unique setting, so reserve a day for relaxing to the sound of soothing waves. ... more   less
