We stayed at the Walkabout for 7 Great days for a long awaited vacation and it was everything we wanted and needed. We stayed in room #8 and it was absolutely amazing with the panoramic views which gave us spectacular views of the Boardwalk and Crystal Clear Blue Ocean!

Cute little apartment hotel right on the beach! We had a one bedroom apt with a king bed and a kitchenette. It also had 2 tv's! The Hollywood beachwalk was right outside the door. Complimentary beach chairs were a plus and the staff was great!

We loved the pink hotel and will definitely be going back! It was clean, well furnished and the bed and bedding was heavenly!! Crisp white sheets with billowy comfort. The Hotel is right on the beautiful beach and the sunrise was spectacular! The Walkabout is like staying in your own private beach cabin. Stores and restaurants are walking distance. We...

As it turns out i needed to cancel the booking and received an online confirmation that the deposit was fully refundable and...

Great little motel, clean and easy access just 10 steps from the sand. I searched around to get this adorable location, even used google map to make sure is was indeed on the water and boardwalk. Hope its not to long before we sneak back for an adult romantic weekend.

Excellent location and unique architecture make this a special place to stay. Not the cookie cutter rooms available at most hotels and resorts. Decorated with pictures from the 1940's Hollywood Beach area, room #5 provided all the ammenities necessary for a comfortable stay.

You cannot beat the location, just steps from the beach and great views. Our first room had issues with the cable so they moved us the next day to room 5 which was nicer anyway. The internet is very patchy so don't count on a consistent signal. The tiki bar was fun to hang out and they have music some...

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. Still, the most popular pastime on the beach is simply savoring the charming character of this truly unique setting, so reserve a day for relaxing to the sound of soothing waves. ... more   less
