REally nice, but could have been better
I returned to this hotel because it is right on the beach with Tiki Bar. I stayed one night three months ago, after the Elton John concert in Miami, but wanted to see more, so i booked a 3 night solo for a quick get away. It is in a beautiful location with food and beverage on site. The room was OK but dirty floors (feet were black). A nice full size fridge, good coffee maker, microwave and small stovetop. Bring stuff to use because food prices are high. Upon check in, I was told there is a new resort fee and parking fee. I was told there were new owners, but the fees were waived because I was a returning guest (EltonJohn). The parking is a joke. There a 4-5 spots by the hotel, and maybe 10 more a block away and they charge $$ for this parking. I got one of the four spots next to the hotel, and did not move for three days. I didn't want to drag all my stuff a block away when I checked out. Parking is almost non-existent in this area. As a Gold Hotel member, i was supposed to get a bottle of wine, and a late check out. Neither happened - new owners. However, on my check out date, they hunted me down to move my car, which I did to the parking area a block away. It was noon and I was on the beach. They almost towed my car, even though my parking pass said good through my check out date. Most hotels let you stay on premises on your check out date, but not this hotel. This is a great area with restaurants, hotels, live music, a bandstand with live music, etc.

Look in the medicine cabinet!
The place is kinda dive-ish but the location is fabulous. The place is clean and has the great little Tiki Bar. Loved the bartender. The front desk person was nice and friendly. The whole place could use a renovation and be properly updated but it is a fun place. Just know that when you go in and can’t find the little soaps or toilet paper look in the medicine cabinet.

Treat yourselves to Relaxation
We love staying at the Riptide, the beach is right in front of the hotel. The Boardwalk is too. Ride your bike, go for a walk (take the boardwalk to the North and it goes a long way. That entire section of Hollywood Beach is clean and safe! Riptide offers a variety of rooms….most with ocean views!

2/10 Poor

The property was in horrible shape compared to the photos online. The photos on Orbitz website do not represent this property at all. The outside is extremely dilapidated and the inside has just had a little paint put over it. The girl at the front deck’s tried as much as she could and I appreciate her for that. I would not stay at this property and if you’re smart you won’t either. When I informed orbitz of the false advertisement they still refused to refund my money back even though we never stayed.
