This was the perfect weekend getaway hotel. The tower suite has a great view of the beach. Enjoy a glass of wine while you "people watch" from the comfort of your room.The staff was very friendly. Close to all the restaurants at the boardwalk but far enough to get away from all the noise. They have everything that you need...

Adorable King Suite with panoramic ocean view! Loved room 4, but ask for a second floor room if you want more privacy. I didn't want to carry my cooler up the stairs. The tiki bar only serves beer and wine or odd low proof stuff, so bring your own liquor! They make good frozen drinks, perfect after a hot day...

I was in room 5 and loved it. Great view and right in front of the beach. I liked all the amenities the hotel had to offer. We came in late and the bartender had our key. I would definitely stay again. The bathroom could use an update but it was nothing that would deter me from staying again.

We were looking for somewhere quiet and relaxed to stay, really close to the beach. Walkabout is exactly that. Comfortable, cosy suite with all the facilities we needed. The beach, which is kept spotless, is literally steps away, and it's right on the boulevard. Restaurants and shops right at your doorstep, but no nightly noise and bustle. Very friendly and...

With a friendly staff and cozy hotel, it felt like a private resort right in all the fun of Hollywood Beach. The tiki bar at the hotel has a great view of the ocean and the boardwalk.

We spent one night here in April before a cruise and want to come back for a longer vacation.

We didn't stay at this hotel but stopped at the Tiki bar several days in a row while visiting. We found this Tiki bar was much cheaper than the one next door and the bartenders were very friendly. It seemed a lot of locals came to the bar but we always felt welcome and found everyone friendly.

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.

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.
