Very comfortable room. Great staff. The location is excellent! Just a few steps from the beach!! Quiet and safe area. A short walk to Hollywood Beach Theatre where live music is played every night. Nice Tiki-Bar right on the hotel premises. No brekfast but nearby is a place called Oceans 13 where you get a great breakfast!

This is a lovely small boutique property on Hollywood Beach. The rooms are modern, breezy, and evoke an Old Florida vibe. The service was incredible. The manager, Veronica and her staff went above and beyond to make things wonderful! The hotel has a Tiki Bar, provides chairs, umbrellas and towels for the beach (including sunscreen). We will definitely return!

I stayed here for the second time a couple weeks ago with a college friend, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Hollywood if I had my choice. Both times I've visited I was in the area for work, and had to relocate from the WalkAbout when my meetings started, once to The Diplomat and once to the Crown Plaza...

My husband and I have had a pretty rough work schedule the last several months, and we've been trying to work out a better schedule for our family. We have a three-year old, and wanted to take a weekend getaway as a family as a late surprise birthday present for my husband. I searched online for weeks, and saw reviews...

I visit my sister often in Hollywood FL. The Tiki Bar at The Walkabout is the friendliest bar on the Broadwalk! Cherese is an outstanding bartender. She is friendly, warm and professional! The service far out performs any other establishment on the beach! This fun little place is a must stop!

Our first stay was in 2014 before going on a cruise. We stumbled across this place on TA. I must say we were a little skeptical at first but upon arriving we were very pleased. It is a very small but clean hotel located in my opinion the best spot in the Hollywood beach area. we stayed in room 4...

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
