The Walkabout Beach Resort is under new ownership and is getting a complete face lift, including hurricane windows, Italian tile, and a brand new paint job. The Walkabout used to stand out as the art moderne-style pink hotel on the north end of the Broadwalk, but now it's a very lovely pistachio and white. It looks amazing! Veronica and her...

The beach cottage we stayed in was absolutely adorable! The cottage was very, very clean, and came with a sunroom to sit and enjoy morning coffee while watching the sunrise. There was also a cute gazebo in the front yard that was perfect to sip cocktails. The broadwalk is right outside the cute white fence that surrounds the cottage. It...

I had reservations at another Inn, which I thought was a regular motel. It turned out to be a bed and breakfast. I didn't understand that the envelope on the door was an envelope--with instructions, as the office was closed. So, luckily my driver knew about WalkAbout, and luckily they had a vacancy. The room was charming, right on the...

Walkabout Beach Resort is located directly on the broadwalk on Hollywood beach. The area is more relaxed than Fort Lauderdale or Miami so it's great for parents and older people looking for a place to unwind. The rooms are excellent - spacious, clean and well appointed. Apparently the occupancy was a little lower than usual the weekend I visited and...

We are locals who go to Hollywood Beach almost every weekend. Stopped here to have a beer because the sign said "$2 Walkabout Resort Ale drafts," but when we cashed out we were charged $3 a beer. When I asked, we were told that the special price was only for 12 Oz., not the 16 we were served. In all...

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.

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.
