Lovely little hotel just in centre of it all on South Beach Miami:-) Not Wifi in rooms only in lobby :-(Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the beach"
My room had a great layout and was very clean. The beach is right across the street from the hotel along with a playground for kids. I would have given this hotel a slightly higher rating if it was not for some of the maintenance work being done during my stay. I understand that work needs to be done but at 8am? I think the average 3.5 rating is fair […] for this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There was a surprise $12 resort fee added on. But it did include breakfast and free bike use for 2 hours , which we did take advantage .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Locale and Superb Service"
Hotel older, but part of charm. Right on Ocean Ave where you want to be. Staff was extremely helpful from checking us in early since a room was available, excellent recommendations for places to go to eat and drink and maintenance was very quick to help us with the room key. I would stay at Hotel Ocean again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel but noisy"
Staying on ocean drive is a nightmare!! So loud and the resturant downstairs plays music until late in the morning. Great hotel if you don't mind the noise.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wine and Food weekend"
What a pleasant surprise!! The reviews I had read were very mixed so I was a bit nervous about my stay. It was great. LArge oceanfront room with brand new bathroom. The bathroom was very small, but had a huge shower. The service was prompt and very accommodating. Staff couldn't be more pleasant, very unusual in South Beach. Very good restaurant in the […] courtyard. Only problem is the noise from the excellent band and flamenco dancer that goes on till 11:30 pm nightly. I definitely would stay there again.

"LOUD, LOUD, LOUD"
If you want to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the ocean...this is NOT the place to stay. Even on Monday night...there was music blaring LOUDLY until at least 1AM in the morning. It is in a good and safter location across from the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not to bad"
After reading the reviews, I was terrified that this hotel will be a horrible experience. it actually was not that bad and the staff were great! Except there were Loud noises in the middle of the night, that sounded like construction was taking place. My husband and I had the junior suit. The suit looked like it needed a little bit more renovation and […] the headboards are not bolted to the wall. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Noisy hotel, convenient location"
We wanted to be on Ocean Drive - right across from the beach - that part was great. The rooms are large and bed was comfortable. What we didn't think about is that to even get to your hotel, you need to pass through the restaurant that harasses you to sit down to eat and drink (Not recommended unless you like too sweet drinks and overpriced food) and […] the noise from the band can be quite loud. Fortunately, music is over at 11pm, but the fire alarm went off both nights (twice - once at 3AM and again at 7am, then in the middle of the night the next day). Both times, the front desk said this never happens, but must have been someone smoking. We thought being in the back would keep the noise down, but didn't think about the trucks in the alley behind us. Probably, the better rooms are at the front. The manager at least apologized profusely, but the noise will keep us from coming back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Checked in late. Accommodated me without any questions. Suites are clean and big. Again just a perfect spot. Lets just hope it does NOT become a SoBe hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't do it!"
The only good thing I can say about this hotel is the location. Staff was not very friendly and you get an additional $12 charge a day to use the wifi and towels and chairs on the beach. For an overnight stay you would be charged $24. A total rip off. Oh yeah the "wifi" is only available in the lobby. You can not access it from the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Most ratchet & worst SoBe hotel I've ever booked."
I've booked through Hotels.com several times for the past few yrs & for the first time, upon my arrival hotel, have I been told my reservation didn’t exist. I didn’t worry because this simply meant I’d have to contact Hotels.com to get it resolved, however, I end up being told that "luckily" there’s a room avail. I booked Junior Suite & it’s what I […] got, however, my room looked NOTHING like the pics. My suite was outdated, dusty, & dirty. It was bare & the little furnishings it had were old & uncomfortable. The curtains had large stains on them that looked like either blood stains or old redish-brownish mold spots…walls were dirty, too. It looked like a suite that hadn't been used/cleaned in a while & in which last minute guest are placed in as a last resort. The bathroom was VERY moldy & had no hand or face towels. My bed was missing a comforter & when I called front desk to request one, I was brought a lightweight raggedy blanket. The telephones had no ext list, so this task took longer than it should’ve, my tv remotes didn’t work, & there was no channel listing guide. I did have ocean view, but windows are so small that it's not much of a luxury...windows were very moldy too. The hotel's elevators & hallways had a horrible strong smell. To top it off, the suite is a corner one & a new hotel's being built next door, so I was woken up at 5am by its construction. This was definitely my WORST hotel experience in SoBe & will NOT be booking here ever again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"More than what you pay for"
perfect location - loud but that is because it is in the middle of OCEAN DRIVE IN SOUTH BEACH. Nice attentive staff. Huge room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Truthfully........Not worth the bother or time."
For starters, we had to pay for parking, which was $33.00 a day. The last 2 days during our stay, we had to walk to another block to pick up our rental car. The hotel doesn't have any place to park cars for their customers. Another issue, was the smell of the hallways and the courtyard. It smelled like mold. The 2nd day when we went down to get some […] breakfast, the ceiling opened up and started to pour water out of 4 light fixtures and onto the food. When asked what was going on, the manager stated that a toilet was over filling above the restaurant. O-how nice........ Lastly, when went got their, we noticed that the AC was not working. In looking at the bed, their was only a white sheet for a blanket. After the first night, I advised the manager that we didn't have any AC, which he got fixed. In asking the manager for a blanket, the manager located one for us. I wouldn't recommend staying here........you will be dissappointed. Sorry, but I'm just being truthful.

"If the location is crucial..."
Staff is very friendly and always ready to assist you. Hotel is located on 12th street on the Ocean Drive which is the primary reason I stayed there. If you like smaller hotels this is a great place for your stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Recommend against this place"
Will not return- suite included nothing typical of suites. Tiny fridge (nothing else), bar but no stools, no furniture other than bed.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Couples Weekend for the Patriots/Miami Game"
Hotel is on the older side and could use some updates, bathrooms inparticular. There was a slight musty smell in hallways but not in the rooms. Staff was great, Harold was very friendly and outgoing. Harold was able to check us in about 3 hours early which was great. We had a room in the front with and ocean view which was nice to see but the entertainment […] right below us in the coutyard was a bit on the loud side, didn't bother us too much. Would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Too loud and dusty."
Construction on hotel next door made it very dusty. Hard to breath. Wood floors had a film not cleaned properly. Loud music from downstairs band made it difficult to sleep. No bellman to help with luggage or valet parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very bad hotel and total waste of trip.."
Never ever go to this hotel even if it fits your budget. The hotel staff was very rude, the rooms were not clean. After several reminders the staff finally came and did the cleaning and what was found that the same towel which was used the same has been folded and kept back at place. There is nothing like breakfast in the hotel which they call as breakfast. […] Its just plan bagel and bread and toaster available. The juice is kept aside.. god knows how old it was... Very bad experience totally and will never go again nor recommend to any one. Very bad hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach"
When we first arrived we had a hiccup with the bathroom not being cleaned, however upon my complaint we were switched to a much better room with a ocean view. The staff was great and friendly. The romantic getaway was perfect as we sat on the beach and travel the strip from club to club bar to bar. Perfect location for all who want to have fun.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good services, but the room was not to clean, To much noise at the second floor. Have a good area next too beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
The junior suite was fine for our stay. The only thing that was a little bothersome was the loud music from the restaurant downstairs but then again it's Ocean Dr. in Miami. If you want to get lots of rest or have small children you should probably stay in a different area. Hotel location was walking distance to most nightlife which was great!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pour quality hotel"
The price do not mach the quality of the service. We asked for four towels they geve us only two. Only after few times calling the girl who working in the lobby brouhgt us some.but the made doesn't know what her job is. Didn' trash out the garbage and didn' change the bad linen..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean but falling apart"
Tiles falling off the bathroom tub and walls, cracked leather chairs. Good location and nice sized room. Don't want to stay more than one day. Glad i didn't have to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We booked into the Ocean but when we got there we were upgraded to the Break Water. Everything there. Was superb except for the coverage who never seemed to be on duty when you needed information. Other than that the hotel is most recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Setting, Great Nightlife"
We LOVED our room!!! Looked like a picture out of a magazine. Nice and spacious. Comfy bedding. Bathroom a bit peculiar, but good enough to get in, get cleaned, and get out to PARTY!!! Will DEF seek to rebook for future group vacation!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for couples"
This was my second stay here. I will be back again. I love this hotel. the staff, food, entertainment excellent. Very quiet and peaceful at nite.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for couples & family."
Pleasant experience. Love the courtyard live evening music. Perfect location.Genuine Expedia guest review
They lie about bed sizes in their description, bathrooms filthy, some rooms have mold in bathroom, too loud to sleep at night, some rooms need renovation based on 3 rooms I saw. Only good thing was location and the restaurant downstairs has really good food.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right across from the beach"
Close to the Ocean. Nice spacious room. Awesome shower.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Looking Room With Hidden. Flaws..."
Recently stayed at Hotel Ocean for a weekend getaway. The room was much larger than expected and was conveniently located directly across from the beach. The room itself contained a queen size bed, a bathroom with jacuzzi tub, a separate shower just outside the bathroom, a bar, spacious living area, leather couch and hard wood floors. From first glance […] the room appeared to be amazing, but as I looked further I found several flaws. First the room smelled like old sweaty socks; I assume that it was the ventilation system. Next, the room was humid, seemed like the air conditioner didn't work too well. Attempted to turn the AC down, but wouldn't. go lower than 78 degrees. The remote control to the TV barely worked and the cold water handle was missing in the bathroom sink. Overall. I made the best of the room because I knew I would be outdoors most of the day, but I probably wouldn't stay at this hotel again. nor would I recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel overall"
Housekeeping needs to clean the bathroom and wood floors everydayGenuine Expedia guest review
My experience overall was ok. I came with my husband and we had a pleasant time. My only concern was the third floor it had a very unpleasant odor throughout the hallways. It was a stale odor . The hotel needs to upgrade on finer linen for the beds as well. The hotel is at a great location with many resturants near by.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what it used to be"
I was so excited about scoring such a great deal @ this hotel. I stayed here several years back and absolutely loved it. Luckily i called to confirm my reservation prior to travel because the hotel had me booked with a queen size bed. I booked a Junior Suite with a king size bed and a partial oceanview. When i explained that was not what i booked; i […] was told by the hotel that the room i booked only had queen size beds available and i would have to pay for an upgrade for a king bed. I contacted Expedia who quickly remedied the situation and suddenly i had a king bed @ no additional charge. When i checked in; i felt like i was given the most outdated room. No partial oceanview; fridge door wouldn't close; huge crack on the ceramic bathroom sink; and a barely comfortable king bed. They fixed the fridge but i remained disappointed in the upkeep of the hotel overall. Also be prepared for the blaring music of the hotel next from 10-10:30AM- 2AM.

"Memorial Weekend away with adult daughter."
This was a quaint little hotel right on Ocean Drive. We had a room away from the street which was nice and quiet, a welcome relief from the normal noise along this stretch. The room was mostly nice but a couple improvements would have been welcomed. An Ikea style wardrobe cabinet needed to be thrown out as it felt like it would fall apart when one opened […] the doors, the shower area had an oblong opening which was in need of regrouting. More hangers also would have been nice, five was not enough. The room also had drinks and snacks for purchase, however at the rate they marked things up one was either too drunk or very desparate to use any of the supplies, ( a 50 cent candy package was 5 dollars.) Do not eat here though. The food was way over priced for the lack of quality. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel and staff were great and the location was awesome. I wish the staff would have informed me when I checked in that major construction was going on right outside of my room - jack hammering starting at 8:00 am every morning. Also the WiFi signal strength was so poor I could not access the internet, email or any of my company's assets from my […] room. The room was large but no where to work, no desk just a dresser but you basically had to stand to work. Again with no functioning WiFi I spent most of my days working at Starbucks 2 blocks away. Not ideal at all. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad experience for the price paid."
We went in to a dirty room. The sheets on the bed had stains and when we asked for new ones, it took a while because the guy from the front desk had to bring it up. They had no other staff after a certain time, which I have never seen before. Then I wanted to use the iron, It was burned very bad. Had I not noticed, it would have ruined my dress. The […] snack bar did not come with a price sheet which all the hotels I've been with have had. I checked out a day early and the from desk person didn't Know how to print out a final receipt of my stay. It was just a bad experience overall. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Harold is a member of the hotel management and he was awesome. He gave us good tips about places, but the hotel itself could be better. The first room that we stay was not very clean, and in the first shower, the shower tap (which was very old) just brake in my hand. First the woman tried to live me without shower, but just after they transfered us […] to other room, which was ok, and better cleaned than the first one. the breakfast was ok too. The localization is very good,in the center of Miami South Beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location on ocean drive"
Rooms were small but comfortable. Hotel staff was nice and allowed us to check in early as we were coming from a different hotel. The down side to this hotel is the noise level in the hallway can be heard in the room. Overall, good clean place to stay if youre on a budget.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel pictures where completely false. The rooms were dirty and not comfortable at all. There was hair in the bathtub from the people there before.We were upgraded to a room that was supposed to be great and it was pretty much the same thing. I stayed in a hotel in Everglades city the day before for half the price and it blew this hotel 100% out […] of the water. I understand that the location of the hotel would be a higher cost but it shouldnt mean lesser quality . I was completely disappointed and will never stay there again.

Hotel was like nothing in picture, room was not properly cleaned, saw cockroach in shower. Would never stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
it was the direst hotel i have ever stayed at .There were bugs in the lights bars of soap in the shower, the shower didnt work(either hot or cold) ,black mold around the tub, a really bad musty smell.and if all the other local hotels werent booked would of relocted to another.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Unfortunately, they only have one bed so my friend and I had to share it; however, it was really big so we had our own space. LOL I say for couples because the room was set up that way and would be really nice for a getaway. The location is good. It is a little deceiving when you pull up but all the hotels on Ocean drive seemed that way. It was funny. […] Do not I repeat do not eat anything out of this room!! Too expensive a .25 bag of chips is $5 ok enough said. The staff is pleasant. The room was a little on the cold side but there is a thermostat where you can adjust it yourself. Overall, the room was much better than I thought it was going to be and I would stay there again! Oh the complimentary breakfast sucked but hey I was on my way on a cruise too excited to eat that early anyway!! Bon Voyage!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, would go back"
This was my first time visiting Miami and South Beach. I arrived at the Hotel Ocean, and was told that i was upgraded to the Breakwater Hotel (a nicer hotel). The only drawback was that i had to take my bags a few blocks down Ocean drive via sidewalks which ran through the middle of outdoor restaurant patios full of tourists and wait staff - not a fun […] experience, mainly because the sidewalks are really meant for strolling, not dragging luggage. The staff at Hotel Ocean did give me $5 for a cab though, which in hindsight i should have used. Once at the Breakwater, I had to wait more than an hour after the scheduled check-in time for my room to be ready. Overall, the Breakwater hotel was a great hotel. It is in a really great location - close to the beach, restaurants, amenities, and night life. The rooms were very well appointed, and the manager (Jaimie), was very accommodating - he really is a great asset to the Breakwater. The only potential drawback to the Breakwater, depending on what you plan to do in South Beach, is the noise from local nightclubs, which play loud music well into the morning hours. The windows at the Breakwater Hotel block out most of the noise, except for the bass. We were on a lower floor on the same side as a popular club, so i imagine our experience was not indicative of all rooms. To compensate for the noise, we were upgraded to one of the penthouses, which was a real treat. It was quiet, had amazing views of the ocean, and a roof-top jacuzzi.
