"The Hollywood Beach Resort is confusing because there are two hotel rental programs, one being Design Suite Company. I rented directly from the owner who provided me with a reservation number, and I had no problem checking right in right when I arrived. I noticed a large portion of the other guests, who used a rental program, were stuck waiting for their rooms to be cleaned. The owner of the unit has lived with her family for 20 years walking distance to the resort. She offered us to park in her driveway to save 150 US dollars a week, but we chose to park in the garage. We were hesitant to stay in the building due to bad TripAdvisor reviews. All the units are privately owned with this one being very updated. We booked this directly with the owner who was more than accommodating as this was our first visit to Hollywood Beach. We were not charged any additional fees such as a resort fee. My husband and I were celebrating are anniversary, and Yvette was able to give us information on the beach and downtown area with recommendations of where to dine as well as what to avoid. The unit was extremely clean, had ample bath and pool towels, a cooler, beach chairs, umbrellas, and every needed kitchen necessity. I met the owner and daughter who just finished cleaning the unit. Yvette was a pleasant lady, and her 16 year old daughter is a special events coordinator of a local Hollywood newspaper. She let us know of all the current weekly Hollywood activities.
We had no issues with the unit and would stay here again. We were able to stay past checkout as no one was arriving that day. I recommend this unit for couples and families as there were ample beach toys available for kids in the unit. This unit made my stay more enjoyable especially waking up to the sunrise from the window.
