Property is right across from the beach. Parking just around the Alley. Ocean Blvd was closed off to traffic infront of property so it was nice and quiet.

The property was very nice. Right across from the beach. The lobby attendant was very nice and accommodating me as soon as we got there because the hotel we were supposed to stay in had a leak in the room and they were sending us somewhere else. Decided to stay at this location and was happier. The room was very nice and clean. Very close to a lot of stuff. Will definitely stay again

Staff was very friendly and accommodating, property is very clean and the rooms are the perfect size. It’s directly in front of the beach and walking distance to everything Ocean Drive has to offer. The complimentary breakfast was great!

This hotel did not look as advertised.. the location was great but my room had “evidence” of another couple staying before my arrival. They give you drink and breakfast vouchers but the room was small… The best thing about it was the view of the beach and the mirror on the wall. The smell wasn’t great and my tv didn’t work. I would not stay here again.

My overall experience was good. I didn't like the fact that I had to leave the property for breakfast and visit another hotel to access the pool. The Penguin Hotel rooftop pool appears to be on top of the Hotel in the advertisements.

The hotel was just right for my needs. I just wished that all the amenities were right in the hotel the fact that they weren’t isnt a bad thing either! The rooftop pool was Beautiful at the sister location. The breakfast at the sister location was good but should have included juice 😊! I had an ocean front room and enjoyed waking up to sunny mornings! Beach towels were a plus! And our room attendants were very helpful providing us with clean towels and water! Thank you for your service!

Oh booked a room for 4 , they kept giving me things for two. Like the included bottled water , drink vouchers . So why am I paying for 4, if you’re giving me things for 2. Had to keep reminding them to give me everything I payed for. Obviously they try to get one over on me each step of the way.
