My husband and I stayed at the Sheldon for a couple of days and I was disappointed with it. Several reviews I read were positive enough to entice us to save the extra $200 per night that the Crowne Plaza would have cost. The hotel is "newly" renovated using the cheapest materials possible in the worst taste! These are already...

We have stayed a handful of times before and this time chose to bring our children for a family vacation over their 4 day weekend. We have seen this place improve greatly through the remodel but what remains the same is the staff, the manager, Javier, and his desk clerks and maintenance person we recognize trip after trip there over...

We just came back home after a week here to escape the cold weather. I found the hotel online which means you never know exactly what to expect. This hotel is an amazing find ! After reading some of the other reviews about this place.. Firstly, I don't understand why anyone thinks the location is "scary" It is a perfectly...

This is a small, remodeled hotel, the rooms are nice. It's quiet, unlike many of the Boardwalk hotels. Staff is nice, maid service great. (Tips help). The hotel has only two balcony rooms, but if you can get these, you will have a guaranteed BLAST! The other rooms have good views too. Very secure lobby; we felt very safe. Walk...

We decided to spend a night here after a cruise - I had spoken to an employee of the hotel months prior and had decided to book a room with a king size bed and a view of the intercostal waters. (Thought this would be enjoyable watching the ships) Hotel also offered free wifi and parking. Upon our arrival we...

Last minute find but what a gem! Literally steps from the beach. Floor walkways leave much to be desired but rooms are just fine. Recent remodel. Friendly staff. Free parking. Free Wi-Fi. So many eateries steps away.

We looked around again this year but ended up booking our Beach Front Rooms we always get in January. We have been making this trip since 2009 with a couple of exceptions to go to Hawaii vs Florida. Accidently found the Sheldon and although they seem to be in constant remodel mode, always works well for us. The Broadwalk is...

When we drove up to this hotel it was very scary. It's somewhat in the back street towards the beach. The entrance is in a scary alley but when u get inside of UR room it's not bad. We had an ocean front room which was amazing but the weather was not great. It rained during our stay and we...

Second time staying at the Sheldon and I plan on returning again and again. Brenda, the manager, was very accommodating. Stephoinie and Mariano were both very nice and helpful with anything I needed during my short stay. Hema, Isaias, and Arianett rounded out the superb staff. Last but not least, Dorothy, the supervisory maid is the best! When I showed...
