"Nice hotel close to beach"
We checked in and our bags were taken to room for us. The room was very nice , clean, not large but was very nice. Very nice breakfast and food in the restaurant was large servings easily split between us. Great pool and landscaping. Beach was just outside the back of the property the water was sooo clear and nice. One of the nicest beaches I have been […] to. Everyone was very nice. I would go back again.

"Bad rooms if u are planning to rest dont book here"
I decided to book in the beginning for Marsheilles hotel but since south seas is next door and included breakfast i choose it with no doubt. 1.We arrived and the first disappointment issue was that there were no parking meaning a $29 fee per night plus tipping the valet every time u need the car. The service and desk ladies were so nice and friendly. […] The room soooo little and old, awful view, but clean. The worst part is by night you can hear all from next room so we couldn't rest, people next room were drunk and screaming with tv volume so loud every night from 3-6 am, you can even hear the toilet flushing. but we weren't the only ones complaining about this issue it happens in every room in every floor. 2. The other disappointment thing was the FEE for chairs for the beach I mean come on you are part of the hotel they should put bracelets on you like Cancun or Puerto Vallarta. You have to pay $25. But one guy said that we can have 2 for $10 all day when i ask for a note or something to prove my payment he said dont worry just look for me when u come back, so i trust him and guess what bye bye $10.

"Extremely bad service"
It was the worst of all the hotels we visited the last month in miami...In all the night could not sleep because the toilet was broken, and a lot of noiseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs some updates"
It started off with not being able to get into our room due to the card reader being broken. Three trips back down to the front desk and finally needing the maintenance man to open the door and replace the lock. The safe and shower drain needed to be fixed also. The maintenance man did a great job, but i wish we did not need to keep calling him. The […] room was small we needed to go outside to change our minds. Wish I knew about the beach charge, it was additional money to use chairs on the beach. They wanted $ 30.00 if I knew beforehand I would have had money with me. I hate being nickle and dimed. The free breakfast is not worth it, not enough food and too many people. The normal breakfast started at ten which is kid of late. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok location, old hotel"
Hotel looked a lot better online. Very old, but good location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Girls weekend away"
Staff was very friendly from advice on where to eat to getting us cabs. The restaurant by the pool was great. We had dinner and lunch because we were too lazy to go out after being at the beach all day. Nice variety on the menu and good prices. We loved the beach access and the hammocks. Lovely hotel, the room was small but clean and quiet. Stocked […] with what we needed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for decent price"
The gentleman who checked us in was amazing! We got in at 6:30am on a Monday and he was able to get us a room before the actual check in time of 3pm. He did not have to, but was able to work some magic. Overall the staff was nice and I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel closed to the beach and shopping"
Good experience. The beach was fine but 10 dollar for a chair is expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stuff very helpful and friendly, hotel very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room were very small... it was close to everything and right on the beach!! Mins. Away from the water and the main streets. The front desk personnel weren't friendly at all. Overall I enjoyed my vacation, I didn't surround it by the hotel that I chose to stay at though. :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"South Seas Hotel Should Sail Away"
Outdated property. Disappointing staff. So unfortunate. Never want to return to South Beach again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, not so great hotel"
Not impressed by this hotel at all. Especially considering the price. BUT, you are in a great location in south beach. The beach was fantastic and they had chairs but you had to pay for them. The pool was nice but the area around it very small. I was unimpressed with the staff. The front desk service was not great. The hotel is old and shows it. The […] door to the room had a half inch gap between the door and the floor. We could hear everyone that walked and talked in the hallway, all the time. If this place weren't in South Beach, it would cost $50 a night or less, but it's South Beach... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not recommend it"
It was a huge disappointment. The best things about the hotel were its pool area and proximity to the beach. The room was cramped, carpet was dirty. There was no fitness room as stated in the amenities, no parking lot, valet only. The hallways are old and dingy. It gave the impression that the owners/managers are only interested in getting as much money […] out of the place as possible with doing little. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, lousy air conditioners"
This is definitely more of a boutique hotel. It's very small and does need some upgrades. The prior reviews were definitely spot on when it comes to the air conditioning in the rooms. They don't work well at all. The air filters have probably never been cleaned out and it was a bit warm even with them on full blast. The room temperature probably never […] got below 73. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are a bit outdated - think 60's style. However, they weren't bad at all. Just small. Beds were very comfortable! The pool area is nice, but much smaller than the pictures make it seem to be. the hammocks are a nice touch and beach access is great. You do have to pay for lounge chairs and an umbrella on the beach. But there is food and alcohol service there, albeit a bit pricey. The staff were more than accommodating and very nice. Drinks are a bit pricey and the food is just ok. The location is great! You can walk anywhere from here and there are deco bikes to rent near by. I can't say for certain I'd stay there again as I have nothing to compare it to in that location. Oh, and there is a bathroom on the main floor. A prior reviewer said there wasn't, but there is one which is convenient for the pool area. Overall, it is a quaint hotel and the staff is great. If they fix their air conditioning in the rooms, I'd give it a much higher rating. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
perfect location, you won't need a car. Valet is $30'per day and so are beach chairs and umbrellas. Easy access to the beach. Room is simple but comfortable. Nothing fancy, but i'd stay again. They are always fully booked, so no early check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. For any stay in South Beach, I park in the 16th street covered garage for $16 per day. Forget valet they are not responsible for any damage. Our room was comfortable, the bathroom is small as many of the older hotel are. The deluxe room with ocean view was a real treat. The best things […] about the hotel are it 's location to Lincoln Ave. and the pool and hammock area. There are even two complimentary cabanas with other hotels charge a lot for. They serve a decent breakfast which is included. The poolside lunch I had was exceptionally good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location terrible hotel"
This hotel Is located steps to the beach but don't expect to lay out without opening up your wallet for that pleasure very disappointing. The hotel is awful it really smells as soon as you walk in it's like an old folks retirement home. Dark narrow ugly halls with no air that lead to small out dated dirty rooms that smell and old wall AC's that barely […] cool. Would not walk on the old carpets with fearof catching something . Small bathrooms a tiny old TV awful dirty closet nothing in the room was appealing. View of another hotel out of dirty windows with old dated broken blinds. Awful breakfast food choices you get free but havevto pay for eggs really! I would say avoid this old dingy hotel that needs updating save your money stay anywhere but here. No parking anywhere pay $29 for the privilege to park there and then the attendants expect a tip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location, great hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, in a great destination"
I truly enjoyed my stay. I had never been to South Beach and I look forward to returning. I would stay again at the South Seas Hotel. The building is old and space is limited. There is no rest room on the first floor (by the pool or in the lobby or restaurant). The location is perfect. A few costs that I did not plan on were: Beach chair rentals 2 […] chairs and umbrella were $30/day (this is a separate fee and requires cash) Car Parking $29 per day In South Beach: You need beach chairs and umbrella, there is no need for a rental car. Traffic is awful and everything is in walking distance. I felt the car rental and parking fees were a waste of money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient, clean, fun, great service."
Our room was not right. But they upgraded us to a suite, I wanted an ocean view king and they don't have one. So if that is what you book, you will either get a double oceanfront or upgraded to the suite. Take the suite, only there's no tub, nice big shower. The really cool thing about the suite is all of the windows and the glass sliding door that […] opens onto the roof. It's beautiful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok hotel needs updating"
The staff here were amazing and the hotel was ok for the price. They need to update the decor/walls because it does make it look kind of creepy. The pictures look WAY better than the actual hotel but the hotel isn't in bad shape. Our view was the side of another hotel so that was pretty crummy. It rained almost our whole stay so we stayed in the room […] alot. The bed was super comfortable. You can get a mini fridge in your room if you request it. Overall it was clean and good for the price. I just wish it looked as good as it did in the pictures online. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Most of the staff were welcoming but others were more entertained on their phones. The room was ok, although the air conditioner was barely working. I kept it on the lowest it would go (60 degrees) and didn't turn it off during the 5 days, 4 nights I was there. It felt refreshing when I walked in the room because coming from the heat outside anything […] would feel better but it was nowhere near working how it should have. Besides, these minor bumps, everything else was good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The reviews I read about this place we're pretty spot on the hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly the rooms are small but clean and have many amenities such as a safe iPhone clock and ice bucket. Hotel itself needs renovating and new carpet but pool is great, plenty of places to Get sun and it is right on the beach this hotel is located right […] on the strip I would stay here again. Also bathroom is a little tight but beds were comfy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great staff, semi-dirty, super close to beach :)"
South Seas in in a great area close to lots of eating, sights, shopping by foot. The staff are super nice, the beach is just a quick walk away. The room we were in wasn't super exciting though. And it's understandable when you have tons of people in and out, with sand and water all over them. The beds were very clean so that made it better when you […] saw a little dirtiness in the baseboards, etc. And overall it was nice to come back here after a long day in the sun!

Marvelous--was upgraded to exquisite suite with balcony and wonderful view of pool area & beachGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, pool, and close to the beach."
We had an ocean view king room. Room was nice, clean. Loved the hammocks and pool. Gate to beach behind pool. Recommend buying your own chairs at Walgreens or Wings as $40 daily for rentail of chairs and umbrella with coupon. Service was ok. Breakfast a bit disappointing. Was hoping for eggs but they were extra. View of ocean was limited but room was […] nice and quiet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"on the beach hotel"
We had a great 2 night stay in the South Seas Hotel. The location is perfect, right on the beach, 2 blocks from Lincoln drive and a few more from Ocean drive. The rooms are not too small, the beds are very comfortable, and the room was very quiet. The pool area has comfortable lounge chairs, a bar and has access to the beach. It's a small hotel, so […] it never felt crowded. Free breakfast has cold cuts, pastries, fruits and even serve soy milk. Parking is 29 a night and beach chairs and umbrellas are not complementary either. We wanted a clean, comfortable not too expensive hotel on the beach and we got exactly that.

"Great Value and Premiere Location"
We selected this hotel for its value. For what we paid and its premiere location South Seas is a great choice if you aren't sweating the details. The pool and hammock area are well kept and add to the hotel experience. You cannot find many hotels with beach access and this location for such an affordable price. The SLS, Shore Club, Mynt, Espanola and […] Lincoln Road are all a very short walk away. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The only true negative of this hotel is that the toilets (I checked my friends' rooms as well) are unreasonably close to the door which makes usage difficult. The decor is a bit outdated but for what you are paying acceptable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not good area for family!!!"
It was a great experience! The customer service was superb!!!only downfall the rooms were small and no good music played in the pool area..Genuine Expedia guest review
"No sleep, no service hotel. Good for easygoers."
The entry of the hotel seems a little appealing when you see the white couches and glass furniture, but the you get to see the real age of the hotel as soon as you enter the elevator. The elevators are very tiny and their inspection stickers were visibly expired. The carpeting and overall feel of the hallways is dull. My friend and I were very disappointed […] to know there was exactly ONE ice machine located in the back of the hotel near the pool on the first floor. The room was descent size, however, the bathroom was tiny. The mattress was extremely hard and the pillows were so worn down, it felt as if you were lying your head flat on top of a blanket. The pool area is the best part of the hotel, particularly the resting area with hammocks, sand, and palm trees that definitely gives you the Miami feel. It would have just be nice to see someone asking if you wanted a drink or anything! There was absolutely NO SERVICE!! When we tried to get lunch by the pool, they told us the wait would probably be an hour and it wasn't crowded at all!! It was just an uncomfortable experience :( Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overpriced 2 star hotel."
The staff was great and friendly but the hotel as a whole left alot to be desired. Rooms are small and needs updating. Alot of areas around the hotel needed cleaning or fixing. The only good thing was the free wi-fi and free breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great pool, restaurant and hammocks"
This hotel has great outdoor things to enjoy such as the pool, restaurant and lounge area on the hammocks. The hotel has a lot of green which I loved. Staff was friendly, I got an upgrade for free. The hotel is a bit dated and the carpet does indeed smell, im not sure why they still have it carpeted. I had the king ocean view room. Big and nice, but […] yet again not too decorated and outdated. They have organic shampoo, conditioner and lotion which was a huge plus for me though. Morning complementary breakfast, a lot of variety and decent. The location obviously is a huge plus. Theres also discounted beach chairs. Id stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not a good hotel experience"
The one good thing about this hotel was its location. That was perfect. Other than that, the staff was very unfriendly and did not provide good service. The maids never left enough towels and washcloths - we were always short at least one. The hotel smelled terrible - like it was moldy and they tried to cover it up with very bad deodorizers. Our bathroom […] was very tiny. The lounge/restaurant by the pool was notorious for bad service and bad food. If you wanted a drink in less that half an hour, you had to go up to the bar and order it yourself and be prepared to wait at least 10 or 15 minutes to get it. The pool and area surrounding it were very nice - just don't expect to get any kind of service there. Bottom line, we will never go back there and I definitely would not recommend it to anyone I know. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great beach, great location"
Perfect location - far enough from the noise of Ocean Drive, but close enough to walk. Also, just a couple blocks from the Lincoln Road mall, which was great for shopping. But best was the beach, just right outside the hotel. Very relaxing weekend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the location was great for walking to different places. The staff was friendly and helpful. Dining choices at the hotel were limited and pricey. The pool area was absolutely amazing. Our room was in the smaller side. Ground floor was quiet at night but the hall traffic was highly audible in the morning. It was a simple but comfortable room -- […] we didn't spend much time there because the beach was so beautiful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel to stay with friends!"
I always go to Miami, and this hotel was very nice, de pool, the room, the loby, breakfast included, but the thing that I most liked was that you already have beach chairs and everithing at the beach, you dont have to carry anything, and they give you special prices if you are staying at the south seas. Really nice and perfect location! everything in […] a walk distance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, disappointing hotel"
Even though the location of this hotel is great, the rooms and conditions of elevator, hallway, etc are not up to standard. The pool and beach acess are great but you might as well spend all of your time outdoors because the room was not comfortable and the bathroom was so small only one person could hardly fit there. Breakfast was good but most tables […] were always packed and the toaster broke so i had to wait for someone to get it fixed as they did not have an extra one. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
it's located on Collins ave, waling distance to everything. That's the best thing about it! after that: rooms are small and dark and old. My room was located on the first floor so noise from people h24. Breakfast is included but it's cheap. Bar service is expensive compared to other more quoted hotel in the area. The pool is ok. Service is ok. People […] are friendly. I think it's overpriced compared to other options I had to choose from. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
