We went as a family for Spring Break for six nights. It is a very tranquil setting. It sits right on the beach, so you must like sand! There are a lot of nice shops and restaurants along the broadwalk. The tiki bar right at the bottom of the steps is a nice touch. It is a bit older, but... More

We have greatly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful boutique hotel, located at the less crowded part of Hollywood Beach. We just loved to walk out the door barefeet, kids could safely play on the Beach. Restaurants are on strolling distance. Safe carbparking inside neighboring Mariott hotel.

We were there for four days and enjoyed every minute. The rooms are a great size and the staff was very helpful. We had a fantastic view of the beach and enjoyed daily walks on the boardwalk. It felt like we had our own little bungalow by the beach. Lots of choices on the boardwalk for eating and a small... More

This was a very clean and friendly place. It is old but that being said, it has old charm, a very old beach feel. You walk right out of your door to the beach. Lovely views. The boardwalk is awesome. Bike lanes and a wide walking path. Lots of shops and restaurants along the way.

I was here for a business trip with a few co-workers but I would come back and stay for vacation. The hotel was funky and charming. Rooms were huge with a large living room and bedroom and a small kitchen. Views were unbelievable as the hotel is just steps from the beach with nothing obstructing the view. Just walk about...

We stayed a week in late Febuary 2013 at Walkabout. We had a great time. The rooms were large, clean and well maintained. The kitchen was very handy. The greatest thing about it was how close it was to the beach. We really enjoyed walking out the door, across the broad walk, and sitting down at the beach. The people... More

CLEAN and COMFORTABLE. I don't like giving the best kept secret away - but this place is truly the best on Hollywood Broadwalk. Quiet end of the beach much less touristy than the south end. Tiki bar is fun and has live music on Saturday. Quiet place to relax. Sherry keeps the place immaculate! I will keep returning every year.

I stayed at the WalkAbout Beach Feb 16-18, 2013. Although it was the coldest week imaginable, this little gem made my stay pleasurable. My room was spacious and directly faced the ocean. It was great having a kitchen (as I said it was cold) since I didn't feel like venturing right out in the morning for something to eat. The... More

We had the pleasure of staying here in January. We were very happy to be staying at a smaller hotel instead of a high rise. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and well-appointed and we even had a kitchen. We enjoyed meeting some locals and visitors at the tiki bar, and loved being able to walk right...

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.
