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...

We enjoy smaller, boutique properties so after reading many reviews on TA I thought we would like the Walkabout and we definitely did. We were going on a cruise out of FLL so it was a great pre-cruise hotel. We arrived very late 11 pm and our room was open with the key waiting for us. The bartender from the...

One of the best kept secrets in Hollywood! Located directly on a quieter section of the broadwalk, just a few steps from the beach. A beautiful ocean vista from turret style windows with bright sunshine throughout the day followed by the sound of waves & coastal breezes at night. We LOVED the pink color of the hotel. Our suite was...

We planned a winter escape and picked a spot on the map, and Hollywood was it. After reading reviews, we chose Walkabout. We were only staying for 2 days and they didnt require a minimum stay. When we arrived, I was a little nervous. Its not much to look at from the loading area. However, we were pleasantly surprised! Gina,...

Pre-cruise to soak up the sun for three days and we found the "Best" little beach resort ever via the internet! This little resort is ranked #8 in all of Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood FL and it is our opinion, it should be rated #1, spotless very clean rooms. We caught a cab from FLL for $35.00 for two couples to the...

First of all, you cannot have a bad room here, as there are only 8 of them and they all face the beach. We had a Queen Studio on main floor, and loved it. We were literally 5 steps from the TiKi bar, which was a riot thanks to our super friendly bartender! We had initally scheduled this trip for...

Stayed here on a last minute business trip (in January) when all the major hotels are booked with conventions or snowbirds/Canadians (all great people!). It is absolutely adorable. If you are looking for the Ritz, go to the Ritz. If you are looking for the days-gone-by of Hollywood, FL and all that it was, this is the place for you....

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.

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.
