Wonderful FL Gem
As soon as we pulled up to the hotel it was like being transferred into a Tim Dorsey novel. The hotel was built in 1939 and Diane and her late husband put a lot of work into maintaining a beautiful piece of Florida history. Diane continues to provide excellent care to the property and is very attentive to her guests. She truly makes you feel comfortable and like you are at home. The rooms are clean and spacious. The property is very quiet and the perfect distance from the beach. Having a guaranteed parking spot at the hotel is also a great perk. We will definitely be returning. If you want to experience the vibe of old school Florida, then this hotel is for you!

Charming Family Owned Hotel
Great location at the south end of the broadwalk; quiet, but an easy walk to local restaurants, shops and beachfront watering holes. Room was a little bit dated, but with a charming retro feel. Immaculately clean room and exceptionally friendly management, you almost feel like family. The studio I stayed in had a huge fully functional kitchen. Plenty of towels, both for bathing and for the beach. What a great find!

You couldn’t ask for a better location. The beach is just a few steps outside your door. Everything in this villa is modernized and compact. It is very clean. Kitchenettes to save you a few $ are very appreciated. Boardwalk right a few steps away. It was everything I hoped for and more.

A gem of a place and an owner
I cannot say enough about how wonderful this property is, and how incredibly kind and generous its owner, Diane, was to me. For various work-related and other reasons, I was under a lot of stress when I booked this place and from my very first contact with Diane, I felt calmer and happier. After I was there and had all sorts of stressful things to deal with, she went way above and beyond to help me! The place itself is adorable, a little slice of old Florida less than a block from the beach, which I could see from the dining table of my corner one-bedroom suite—a fabulous space with a well-equipped kitchen, a spotless bathroom, beautiful understated Florida decor and a lot of space. This is the place I’ll return to when I come back to South Florida—the
A Jewel in the Heart of Paradise! – Salt Lake City, Utah
My wife & I stayed here for 5 weeks. It is at the southern end of the broadwalk, which was just perfect for us.We were just a few steps from the beach.The owner, Diane & her son Michael were very lovely & helpful people. There was a washer & dryer for our use. The BBQ was clean & worked perfectly. We were also given a parking spot, which was a relief, since it is very hard to park in that area. My wife & I would walk the broadwalk every morning. The grounds were very nice,not many places have grass! I would sit out side on a chair & enjoy a beer. Cannot wait to return! – Kevin M
We came to Hollywood to see a Miami game and all the usual big hotels were booked up. I saw a great review about Marine Villas and booked 2 nights, It was a wonderful room with a great view of the ocean. The breeze was such that we left the windows open all night and enjoyed the salty smell of the beach. – Edgewater, Florida
We spent a few days in hollywood fl and enjoyed a nice, uncomplicated and easy going stay at marine villas: second row to the beach, from the upper floor you can see the ocean from your room – more than enough bath towels, clean beds and laundry facilities: we loved it and will return! – Zurich, Switzerland
I have to agree it is the best kept secret in Hollywood!! The place was exceptionally clean and the owners Terry and Diane are super nice and very helpful at suggestions on where to go and places to eat! It was so perfect I can;t imagine staying anywhere else! Absolutly will be back!
