Wonderful. The location is great. The Tiki Bar is steps from every room. The beach is right in front of you and it is only steps away. The rooms are very clean. The biggest asset is the staff. They are very friendly and very attentive. I highly recommend the WalkAbout Hollywood FL. My husband and I make it an yearly...

Kudos to Veronica who manages this wonderful boutique hotel. Clean inside and out with everything you need. The staff is very friendly and the tiki bar is a bonus. Located on the Hollywood Broadwalk, so convenient to the beach and restaurants. Won't hesitate to stay here again. Really like the change from pink to white & pistachio paint!

We stopped here for one night and ended up staying 4 nights. Prime season so it was a little expensive we loved it. Sets right n the boardwalk with amazing views of the water. Small boutique hotel with only 8 rooms. Newly renovated and everything is white shabby chic which I absolutely love that. There is even a little tiki...

This small boutique hotel on the beach is the best hotel in Hollywood. The rooms are immaculate,designed with intent and only steps from the sand. There is a tiki bar to serve you cocktails (although the liquor variety is forgettable) and an awesome staff to make sure you have everything you need. Big kudos to Sharie and her daughters for...

I booked this boutique hotel about 9 months prior to our stay. We were going on a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale, but we always rent a car so distance wasnt an issue. I had never stayed on the broadwalk and was looking for a little spot just like this! We stayed for 2 nights. The hotel manager emailed me...

First of all, the building is no longer this garish pink. It is more white with mint accents. It is located on the northern end of the Broadwalk which is less crowded. Located right off the Broadwalk with the beach on the other side, you can enjoy the sand and the surf to your heart's content, or spend some time...

First, it is right on the Broadwalk with a wonderful view of the ocean. But just as nice is that the management is so personable and helpful. We stayed in the cottage which has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. And a GAZEBO which we practically lived in for 5 days enjoying morning coffee, sandwiches at lunch, and cocktails at sunset....

Very friendly, helpful staff. Great location right on the boardwalk with restaurants in either direction. Awesome views of a beautiful beach that wasn't over crowded. Good value. Room 5 was perfect for our family of four. We had a very enjoyable stay.

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.
