Great late check in system (make sure the hotel has your email address) - rooms are more like apartments with separate well equipped kitchens - in fact the room has everything you need, a free safe, wifi, iron, toaster full size cooker and fridge etc. Located right on the boardwalk with great views and sounds of the ocean. Parking is...

Very close to the beach, but a very old place with a bad smell inside the room. We were out of hot water in the shower many times during our stay. The hotel has bikes for free. It's in a very touristic area with many not so good restaurants.

Great location on the boardwalk and beach....Just a few steps from the Florida sand. Simple room but suitable for beach goers. Reception was hospitable and attentive. Just passing through between connecting flights so this was a great restful stop over. 2nd floor room overlooked the Tiki Bar with great DJ beach music.

This was our 4th time staying at the Riptide. We won't stay anyplace else in Hollywood. The live music at the Tiki bar keeps you entertained while on the beach and beyond. The locals that visit the tiki bar couldn't be any nicer, and the staff is so helpful, nice and accomodating. You cannot find another hotel for the price...

Be aware there is no pool at this hotel however it does sit right on the beach. It was not at all what we expected so we checked out after the first night but they only refunded us for 3 of the 4 following days. It was worth losing the one night's stay to move down the road. We stayed...

Whilst staying in Orlando we did an overnighter to Miami/FL. I wanted a hotel by the sea and the Riptide didn't disappoint. Sitting in the bar in the evening and the next morning gave us an incredible view. A short walk down the boulevard took us to restaurants where we had live entertainment from the amphitheatre in front of us...
