I was a little skeptical when we arrived due to the decor, but once we were settled in, I realized what a steal this place is. It's right on the beach! You can walk out of the hotel and feet away are the warm sands of Florida. The hotel itself is a bit old, but it's locally owned and operated...

First of all, we love Hollywood Beach, and we are very particular about hotel accommodations. We scoured reviews and decided to give Hotel Sheldon a try. From our first encounter with the desk clerk, we knew we had found a gem. We arrived about 10:30am not expecting to check in, but the representative allowed us to store our things, gave...

This hotel is literally on the hollywood beach boardwalk. You park your car for your stay and dont really need to drive anywhere. Everything you need is at walking distance. The best part is that the beach is just a few steps away. The hotel will give you beach umbrellas and beach chairs if you dont want to pay for...

Stayed her for one night following a stay at Margaritaville. Great little place right on the beach. Everything is completely remodeled, so it's nice and new. We had an ocean view room and it was just gorgeous. Would definitely recommend this place. Rooms are small and no pool but a great spot for a few nights.

Second time staying here and was not disappointed everything was great. The rooms are clean and recently remodeled and the hotel staff is wonderful. My favorite thing is sitting at the beach before going to all the great restaurants. I love the free beach chairs and umbrellas which are nice new wide beach chairs. There may not be a pool...

The Hotel Sheldon is perfectly located on the Hollywood Beach boardwalk, mere steps from the beach and the Hollywood Beach bandstand. Jimmy Buffet's new Margarittaville is right next door so you can enjoy some of the amenities of that resort without paying their extortionist room rates. Despite having undergone a recent renovation, however, the Hotel Sheldon still shows its age...

Friends recommended we try Hollywood as an alternative to Miami Beach. We hadn't heard much about the area but decided to give it a go. The Sheldon is in a perfect location as it sits dead center of the Broadwalk. It' s a restored vintage hotel with updated, well appointed rooms and lots of amenities to make your stay hassle...
