Can't say enough about this place. While it's an older resort, it's location right next door to Mararitaville on the Hollywood beach boardwalk was perfect. Right in the middle of the action. And the vote from our room... spectacular! Open the window, and there was the ocean! Couldn't have asked for more! Also... free beach chairs and umbrellas. We were very very happy staying here.

Charming beach motel!

Pros: Location! It was also very comfortable and the staff were engaging and warm.
Cons: Nothing. Motel has old Florida charm, and is well maintained.
Location: Location is fabulous, and so much you can walk too. Many restaurants. The Taco joint was one of our favorites.
Hotel Sheldon is a well maintained hidden GEM that is beachfront, right on the famous Hollywood beach boardwalk. This hotel was comfortable and clean, and had location, location, location. In a beach full of high rises and huge resorts, this motel offered old Florida charm, clean rooms and comfortable beds, ocean views, FREE parking, and beach towels, chairs and umbrellas for you to use throughout your stay. The front desk staff was helpful and very friendly, and there was always ice water and fresh coffee in the lobby. The Sheldon is a great resort for the price, and has the most perfect location. I can't say enough about this charming bouzy beach motel!

Great Location, Very cool place

Pros: I spent almost 6 hours on the internet researching places to stay when I attended a business meeting in Hollywood, Fla. My time was well spent. The Sheldon is a well managed hotel right on the beach. The room was very clean and very comfortable. Plenty of room, king sized bed, flat screen, refrigerator, - everything you need for a good night. The lobby made you feel like you were in 1950's black and white movie. It was sparse but spacious with a classic feel to it. The sliding glass doors looked out on the ocean. The staff was very friendly and very helpful with directions and recommendations for food and entertainment. There was an elevator but you would feel silly using it as it was a short flight up one set of stairs to the rooms. It was obvious that the ownership has kept up with modernization of the hotel with electronic key entry to your room, glass shower doors, room electronics, and a very comfortable bed. This is a great place to stay for people who just want a safe, clean, comfortable room, right on the beach at a great price. The room and the hotel was very quiet providing a great night sleep in spite of all the activity outside. If you are looking for multiple swimming pools, lobby shopping, and Jimmy Buffett music on the loudspeakers at 7AM, stay at Margariteville next door. If I return to Hollywood with my wife, I would stay at the Sheldon.
Cons: There was nothing I could think of that I didn't like about the Sheldon.
Location: Great restaurants a short Uber ride away in the town of Hollywood. Saw on way to airport a large nature preserve that could be fun to visit.
