We knew we were in for a surprise when we walked into the dark lobby that look like it is stuck in 1940. Huge dark lobby with a small check in desk on one wall, it was a weird vibe. The hotel kind of creeped us out. Our room was small with nothing fancy at all. The bathroom had no...

Recently stayed here. If you know the area lots of the hotels go waaay back so expect a little different. Hotel has been modernized but sure would be nice if they could offer balconies for ocean front rooms. Probably too expensive to retro fit but I'm splitting hairs. Nice clean place righ next to all the main action.

Really enjoyed staying here. It's a medium sized family run hotel right on the boardwalk in Hollywood, FL. You can walk to lots of restaurants, bars, the stage with free music and, of course, the beautiful beach. This hotel has everything you need at the beach - air conditioned, in-room safe and coffee-maker, free wifi and a good selection of...

We stayed at Hotel Sheldon for 2 nights after a cruise in Port Everglades, it was an easy cab ride from the port. We got to the hotel around 11:00am...way to early to check in...but we were greeted very warmly & enthusiastically, we were offered to store our luggage while we changed & took advantage of their free beach chairs...

Clean and good location at the beach. Old house but renovation ongoing. A bit to expensive. Parking close by at a extra cost and free internet that actually worked. Close to airport, perfect for travellers going to or from Fort Lauderdale airport.

Good location (right on the beach) but a little sketchy... I was staying here and as I was going up to my room, I heard the front desk tell a homeless man that the vending machine is on the second floor. I am very sympathetic and feel awful saying this but it just seemed very unsafe. Other than that, the...

Good location right by the beach and the Hollywood Broadwalk. Clean rooms. No breakfast but plenty of places nearby. Beach towels and chairs are complimentary. Nice and reasonably small hotel compared to what hotels often are in FLA. We had nice 6 days there.
