I thought the people that worked there were awesome. Very helpful and curtious. But the hotel its self was not what I thought it was. The bed was broke, leak in the bathroom and the Windows were screwed shut. There are others thing but I am not going to name them. I think it wasn't the worst hotel but it could have been just alittle bit better in the […] rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location but need renovation"
This hotel has great location with access to the beach. The staff were nice. In terms of cleanliness, if one can look beyond the old and stale smell carpeting, it was actually ok. No wi-fi in the room, we had to go to the main hall in front of the receptionist for internet connection. The overall ambience of this hotel looked gloomy. I am sure repainting […] and replacing the carpet flooring as well as some change in lighting will make a different ambience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A 0 star hotel"
This place is just horrible ......in other words this is worst than a motel ..... I guess this is for ... I can't say but. It is just an awful experience.....Genuine Expedia guest review
It was horrible! Service sucks,no towels to go on the beach,rooms are dirty! The worst i ever saw!!! I think they better call themself as a MOTEL!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Horrible 2 days"
Def it wasn't the best choice .. The cleanness , the hotel codintion, the pool, the room were very poor. We weren't a happy customersGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant stay overall"
Hotel was decent, got your money's worth. Friendly staff too. Big downside was that the site listed valet parking for $30.00 which is decent for that location but the hotel DOES NOT offer valet. However, there is a garage 2 blocks down where overnight parking is $38.00.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location Terrible looking hotel"
This hotel needs someone who is willing to spend some money in a big renovation. I asked for a iron and a ironing table and I just got a filthy iron a day too late.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Im warning u....Do not stay here!!"
First the front desk is not helpful at all. When you ask to get extra towels for the showers they are very reluctant to do so. And they don't even have face or hand towels for you. And if you plan to arrive early before check in and you want to drop off your bags before so at least you can go to the beach or walk around until your room is ready they […] make you pay per bag! Next if you plan on driving your car or renting one for your stay they do not even have a parking for their guest. They tell you to park in a parking deck 3 blocks away for $30 a day! Last it would be nice if they updated the rugs, beds, hallways because it looks like it has not been changed since the 80s. All in all you get what you pay for. Please take my advice and don't stay here. If there was a good thing about this hotel it is the location. Close walking distance to everything on South Beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Value hovel in prime location."
For the price, given the location, the value is amazing. That said, the place is a dump. Know that going in and appreciate being right on the beach in the center of everything in South Beach. There are zero amenities. The lobby is beyond dreary. There likely has not been a renovation since Nixon was President. You likely won't have REAL problems with […] the place; it just looks worse than it is. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Inexpensive beachfront hotel"
Inexpensive hotel near everything. Pool was nice. Old looking unrenovated hotel. Good place to sleep the little time u will be in room in SoBeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Falsely Advertised and Aweful!!"
This hotel was advertised as a well located beach front hotel, with the normal amenities of a similar discount or inexpensive hotel chain. The rooms were in terrible disrepair, the elevators were shoty, and the pool and property was atrocious. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Continental Hotel Miami Beach Rating"
The TV's were very old, not working, the service was slow, the furniture was old, mold in the walls.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for College Students"
A nice hotel for young people. I stayed there while on a business trip and it wasn't up to par with my usual standards but it's very affordable and fine for the younger college student crowd.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spring Break Review"
the continental was not what I was expecting. our air didnt work, our hot water didn't work, there were only 4 channels, our view sucked, & it doesn't look like the picture. the outside looks the best. I wouldn't stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"the worst hotel i've ever been"
dirty, uncomfortable, windows haven't been cleaned for years, water is leaking from all sides in the bathroom.. don't go thereGenuine Expedia guest review
I stayed for a week and I was never given washclothes so we had to purchase our own. The Walsh are very thin and you can hear everything. The pool was dirty and filled with leaves. The staff did not speak English, and weren't helpful. The light broke the tiler didn't flush right and over flooded. There were ants all over the sink. Horrible experience.

"RUN!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS DUMP...."
This hotel is awful. There were no towels or wash cloths in the room when I checked in. I took them 2 hours for towels and 6 hours for wash cloths. The air in the room was not working. The lienes were old. The furniture was outdated. I was mold around the lamps. The carpet is was bad. The only good thing about this hotel was is there address. Please […] don't waste your money. I know that it is a two star but really it shouldn't even have a rating it shouldn't be open. I was HIGHLY upset. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not as bad as others but the AC didnt work. They offered to let us switch but it was already late and all of our stuff was unpackedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only if the price is really right.."
Pros : Location is very good on Collins Ave, close to Hotel has its own beach entrance. Price was acceptable. Rooms are pretty large, closet space and safe is available. Clean sheets and towels were available daily. A mini refrigerator available in the room. Cons : Old hotel. I mean OLD It needs major renovation. Bed was not comfortable, probably the […] cheapest bed in market. You can see the wear and tear everywhere, on elevators, doors, walls, on cheap furniture in the room etc. Windows were not clean, pool area was like the backyard of an abandoned building. You cannot even purchase coffee in the hotel, that kind of services are not available. The toilet seat is almost next to the wall, which is absolutely awkward, as you have to use the toilet with an angle. Verdict : Would I stay again ? If the price is right, I would. Do not expect much from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"If you want to get ripped off-Here's the place"
The guy receptionist was rude and not helpful at all. Our toilet was not working and when we told him he brushed us off and did nothing about it. He charged us an extra $25 dollars to let us in a dirty room one hour before check in. I have stayed before at this hotel and it always sucked but it was the cheapest rates at the time but forget that I would […] rather pay more and have a clean room thats has a working toilet.

"RUN FAR AWAY FROM THE CONTINENTAL!"
The hotel looks as if its trapped in the 70's. The hallways had a awful smell probably from the old dirty carpet filled with stains. The hotel offered a city view but the only view i saw was of 2 vacant buildings across the street. The room had an old analog box tv with 22 channels with only 15 working. Out of the 15 working 6 were in english & the […] others were spanish infomercials. The bedding looked very old and so did the room furniture. Thank god i only booked for 1 night & my finance and I didnt even sleep in the room we opted to stay in a friend's room instead. My suggestion is that everyone should stay away from this hotel & try to find a much nicer place! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Intercontinental Hotel from another continent"
The hotel room was dark and very dated. The bathroom was also in desperate need of a renovation. I went to open the window which faced the side of another hotel and opened onto a partial roof. The lock was rusted and did not work, anyone could have just stepped into the room from that low roof. So, I tried to call the front desk and the telephone cord […] fell off the phone receiver, totally frayed and dead. We did get another room which was not better. The pool outside was in very bad shape, the tiles and concrete all cracked and the grass dead with no other landscaping effort whatsoever. And of course there was no life guard so use it at your own risk if you dare. As we sat on the moldy lounge chairs, listening to the music from next door, feeling envious of all the other beautiful people enjoying the pool next door it was depressing. The only positive thing was that it was on the beach side with direct access to it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is currently being sold off room by room to convert to condos. All the good ocean view rooms are being converted now. No restaurant, no bar, but there is room service available. Pool area is clean with direct access to the beach Considering the price compared to surrounding hotels, this hotel is still a bargain because you can walk to the […] hot spots of South Beach only 5 blocks away.

"WORST HOTEL EVER!!!!!"
Worst hotel I've ever stayed at. Unclean, out-dated, poorly maintained.Genuine Expedia guest review
Horrible, extremely filthy, rooms are disgusting, staff is very unfriendly. I would never go back. Stay away if you can you will be disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A true nightmare"
This was by far the worst dump of a hotel I've ever had the pleasure to find myself in. The entire place is completely run down and in desparate need of renovation. Or, maybe, someone should call for the wrecking ball. The carpet throughout the place makes you wish you brought your rubber boots to Miami Beach. The door frames showed 3-4 layers of chipping […] paint in all different colors. The beds are old, the pillows terrible and the blankets so disgusting that I chose to sleep with my clothes on -on top of the blanket and the pillow wrapped in one of the bathroom towels. This might be a perfect place for an out of control spring brake. The highlight was the next morning when I found at least 5 bites from bed bugs. I decided to check out early and moved to another place. Luckily, I got a refund for the second night. I will never ever stay in this nightmare of a hotel again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"dont do it!"
no ac in room , hot like 5 stations on tv tv was so small could fit it in my luggage....beds were oldGenuine Expedia guest review
When I first got to the hotel, they went to move my car and they hit one of the orange caution cones with my car. Then when I got up to my room, there was a bloody cotton ball on the floor. I will say that the room service had very good food and they seemed nice. So they made my stay a little better. However, overall, I really don't want to stay at […] the hotel again. I only stayed there two nights, so I guess for the price it was alright. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location, expensive for what you get"
The air condition was not working, but was repaired fast and was not an issue. We were 3 in the room and the bathroom had 2 towels. Requested another from the front desk, it never was sent up and We could not go an get it. We were big guys and the toilet was an ordeal to use, tucked by the sink and wall. The bathroom is small. Everything needs renovating. […] I chose this hotel with the understanding that it had parking. it does not. Good location, but no parking at all. They send you to public parking were they gauche you mercilessly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"One of the worst hotels I stayed at"
This hotel had a great location, but everything positive stopped there. They were unable to give me the oceanfront room promised during my booking, then gave me a room that had no lights by the bed that worked. There were bugs in my bed, no paper or pen in the room, and no phone books in the room. Even the front desk had no yellow pages. In addition, […] there was no coffee in the building, nor food to be eaten aside from the machine stuff (hot pockets were the closest thing to real food.) This was the worst place I ever stayed in my life. I will never go back unless I develop amnesia. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wow, so good I left after the first night!"
Old hotel that is in dire need of remodeling. Hallways smelt like a litter box, room had no alarm clock, no clothes hangars, hole in bathroom door. Bed Hallways and doors were all beat up. No WIFI in the rooms, only the lobby. No parking (valet or otherwise), had to park a few blocks away. Now, I've stayed at cheap hotels, was just there for business […] and normally don't care as long as it is a decent bed and shower. But add all of these things among other stuff together and I checked out after my 1st night out of three. Oh and the elevator certificate had expired if that matters to anyone.

"adequate for the price"
No frills, it's a cheap hotel that is reasonably clean and no sign of bed bugs (we always check!). A bit run down but what do you expect for the money? Staff is nice and helpful. There was no hair dryer in my room, no way of getting a refrigerator either. But I enjoyed the stay and would come again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Continental Miami Beach"
The hotel was old with peeling paint and I had to have someone come and fix the tv everyday during my stay. There was only internet service in the lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was pleasant and hotel is conveniently located in South Beach and that is exactly all you get for your money. Hotel has no parking lot, no valet parking, rooms are run down, walls are very thin, and there was a strong "weed" smell in the hallway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a great location! The hotel/hotel rooms is/are not in the best shape, but the rooms were clean and properly attended to. The walls connecting the rooms are VERY thin; fortunately we wanted to start our day early while we were visiting anyway. If you're looking to be in a prime spot, I recommend this hotel.

"Worst hotel ever!!!!!!"
This was the worse hotel I ever stayed in. I would never go back there. You had to go to the main lobby to get Internet service, the cable always went out they had about 8 channels. Just the worsted. Never ever go there they charge you a fee to use there towels. You just could not get comfortable at allllGenuine Expedia guest review
The continental hotel is ideal for those visitors intersted in shopping but not for visitors staying out pass elen at night. I was disappointed at the parking garage that does not allow guests to arrive past eleven at night. The party is just starting in Miami at 11pm. Other than that, the hotel and the staff were greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was taken over by new management in March 2011 and since then they have been slowly upgrading. So far they have done the worst paint job I have ever seen in a hotel, the bar area is actually quite nice but there are no drinks or food served there. The carpet is filthy and needs replacing completely. The walls between rooms and the corridor […] are paper thin, you can clearly hear the guests next door. If you have an alternative, stay there. This place is not recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"You Get What You Pay For"
As I stated, you definitely get what you pay for. 19" tube TV, air conditioning works when it feels in the mood to, no hand towels in the bathroom, and outdated linens & curtains.

"The Continental Hotel @ collins 1825"
Excelent locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Less Than Expected Accomodations & No Bike Policy"
After several trips to the east and west coast of Florida, the hotel is what I expected. Over priced for what you get because of the location. I could say that for all of South Beach in general. The walls are paper thin. So, you hear the conversation next door and all the activity in the hall. People ending their club/bar fest at 3:30am will wake you […] up. So, just stay out late with them. The hotel does NOT allow Motorcycles on the property. The hotel website nor Hotels.com gave me this information. I was lucky enough to find a parking lot a few blocks walk away. However, I had to park my expensive bike under a tree. The lot was also not guarded overnight. The hotel's only big plus was location. It was on the beach and, I could walk to the area attractions I wanted to see. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Continental is what it is, don´t expect more. The price is clear enough. But during the art fair Basel Miami, all hotel prices are more than double of usual rate. It has the best location, next to the best hotels, the rooms are big, really big. Staff tries their best. So it depends on what you are looking for, I need location within a budget.Genuine Expedia guest review
