"Miami Beach on a budget"
First, it is old. I don't mind old as long as it is clean--and it is. I walked in and felt like I'd stepped into an old movie. Only the pastel paint and the sunny dispositions of the hotel staff kept me from perceiving the whole experience in black and white. It has no pool but, with the ocean 200 feet from the front door, who cares? What was a little […] off-putting was that there was no ice machine which required that we purchase a Styrofoam cooler and bagged ice daily to keep any in room beverages cold. Being this is Miami Beach, parking is a bit of a pain I had to get up everyday at 7:45am (after only getting to bed at 3am!) to start feeding the meters by 8 or move the car to free parking spaces on the street 4 blocks away. Located between 74th and 75th Streets, the neighborhood is what some may consider a little 'sketchy'. But being from Jersey City, I didn't mind this. Would I do it again? Yes!

For people who is looking for something cheap and next to the ocean I would suggest this hotel. The conditions inside the room doesn't look very nice.. but it is be good enough to sleep and take a shower.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed here prior to a family cruise. Right away we were sold on the location. It's steps away from the ocean! Parking was perfect and it was right in front of the hotel with free parking from 6:00 pm-8:00am. The hotel was smaller than we expected but that wasnt a problem. As we walked to our room the first thing we noticed was the smell of cheap […] perfume, it was strong, and that's how it smells all the time. The rooms have all the basics including small refrigerator. The beds/sheets were extra clean! The bathrooms were very clean as well! The rugs need cleaning for sure but we just wore our slippers the whole time. They give free breakfast that includes different cereals, milk, OJ, toast, coffee, jelly, and muffins. Staff is there to do their job but won't go out of their way to make you special or anything. The best part was that we were able to take the kids to the beach in the mornings without hassle. ..its right across the street. If you want ocean and if you like to take morning runs then this is perfect for you. They have a running/bike trail right across the street next to the ocean. There's lots of small businesses around to meet all your needs including a Walgreens around the corner. Lots of Latin restaurants too. If you are on a budget and want a nice location with basic hotel then this is good. If money is not an issue for you then maybe you should rent a villa or stay at a fancy place.

"Crack is definitely smoked here."
However, if you are looking for a cheap room on the beach its the place to be.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good being across the street from beach but,"
I stayed 3 days and they only gave one washcloth on everyday I was there. It was 2 adults in the room. Old ruined carpet in the rooms. They need to upgrade their outside furniture. there were only 3 chairs to sit outside on the hotel porch. No additional mirror in the room. Only use this hotel to go somewhere else. overall rating from one to ten is […] a 1 1/2. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location, Location, Location - nothing else!"
The hotel is right across from the beach so the location was amazing and has great views right out of the front of the hotel but that is where the good comments end. The hotel is VERY old and run down. It stinks and is dirty... they have industrial air freshners on the walls throughout the building (like you find in office building bathrooms) to disguize […] the smell - doesn't work. Even though we were on a non smoking floor, the room and hallway reeked of smoke. Some of the rooms have card-key entry and others have old school lock n keys. The room was small and the bathroom was kinda gross with broken fixtures and dirty grout. I didn't feel comfortable walking on the carpet with bare feet. Our AC didn't work so they gave us another room - same run-down feel. But the sheets and beds were clean - no problems there. WiFi only works in the lobby. The continental breakfast was coffee, OJ, milk, cereal and white toast. The Days Inn next door is dramatically better and has a nice restaurant/bar in the lobby. I will definitley not be staying here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't even think about it"
The hotel has a great location. There were no linens on the bed. Went to front desk and they gave us linens to put on bed ourselves. Problem solved. No shower curtain. none provided. Had to get our own towels too but you had to bring back used ones to get new ones. This is a joke and not worth anyone's time. Oh, the room was musty smelling too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, unexpensive, easy parking meters."
A bit away from tourist Miami Beach but a good place to crash, clean with lotsa parking space by meter only from 8 am to 6 pm, after six is free.hotel is on the Beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"terrible hotel for miami area"
This hotel was a smelly and semi-clean place. would not recomendGenuine Expedia guest review
First off, I guess it was my fault that I didn't do a better job of researching the hotel location. I was not aware that it was in North Beach in such an area. As we drove up it looked like an abandon buildings. Maybe more residental than tourist area. The hotel was clean but reeked of cheap cleaning products, was not pleasing. I was giving a room on […] the first floor near the back of the hotel, which seemed okay until we got back there. Very desserted and scary. The rooms doors all have key cards with the exception of this room. We had a key. Overall I would NEVER stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Boo!!! Great if u want a cheap place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything about this hotel was horrible. The elivator didn't work, the room had a funny smell, they don't supply you with towels, the hot water didn't work either night we were there. The costumer service was horrible as well. The desk clerks spoke very little English and did not care about any issue we had. WORST EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD IN MIAMI […] !

"Miami Heat was cool."
I loved the vintage appeal of this please. My only issue was no wi fi in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location and that´s all"
The hotel is right on the beach and the off season price with Expedia was unbeatable. You get what you pay for, plus the beach, and that is a big plus. Service is amateur at best; it is what you get at a hostel without the charm. Carpets are ancient so they put this car deodorizer-like perfume they could do without. Overall for the price, I would go […] back and bring my family. Now, parking; there are no parking on premises (at any price) so you are left off to find metered parking on the street. This hotel is a little off the beaten path so it is as not as terrible hard to find parking here as it is in other parts of Miami Beach, but it could get bad. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ocean View has great Ocean view"
For the price it is well worth it. Nice clean boutique type hotel. The breakfast is very basic but you do get coffee and cerial and toast.Thats fine really for the price. Location is great because here you can still get parking without being towed away. Located round about the 70th street level and South Beach is at the 5th street level so it is a bit […] of a drive to South Beach. The beach in front of the Hotel is pretty nice anyway. Really I was totally surprised to get a Miami Beach hotel at that price and still find it clean and nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
great little art deco hotel that needs a lot of tlc and fix-ups; great staff, comfortable beds, clean rooms; no frills; but location for the money says it all, and you won't plan on spending your vacation in your room!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
this is my second stay at this hotel by choice and I will return again - I love the "old art deco" style and location (across from the beach) - but this is definitely a "no frills" hotel; you have to make sure your AC unit works - or has control dials, but they will change your room for you if it doesn't; another room had no hair-dryer; some units have […] that mold under the tub caulk.... but the bathrooms are cleaned with bleach so they're clean; the beds are comfy; the staff is very accommodating; if you just need a place to sleep and don't plan to "hole up" in your room for your visit, it's fantastic; and the neighborhood has some of the most awesome food within walking distance; parking is a little annoying - if you're parking for the day, it will cost you $8.00 - all metered spaces; but from 6p til 8 a it's free; Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay Away from this cheap hotel..."
Staff is polite and helpful... The hotel stinks...Our AC was old and broken with only one mode of operation. Bathroom was dirty and old. Walls were dirty. The TV was broken and always started on the same channel and with the volume on the max. The lamp didn't work and was filthy with dust. When I pulled the night stand to see if there was an outlet […] I noticed some empty plastic bottles and bags left from previous tenants. No one had ever cleaned thoroughly. So I decided to check the AC filter...It was never cleaned or replaced... This hotel offers the worst breakfast. It consists of Wonderbread, jelly and cheap muffins wrapped in plastic. The breakfast ends at 9 am... Choose another hotel even if you have to pay a few dollars extra.. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"NOT that bad!"
The reason why I got this hotel was because I only had like only $200 saved for my bday weekend with friends to pay for all my expenses..I needed a very cheap hotel and this is the cheapest hotel I found..I was a little scare because I didn't know what to expect from a two star hotel according to the people online and when I got there it was definitely […] a 3! It wasn't as bad as people say it is..if you looking for a hotel to stay in most of the time then this is not for you..now if you came to party, go out, go to beach,tan and go shopping then this is not bad..I only stayed at the hotel to get ready to go out every night and to go to sleep at night so for me it wAsnt so bad..sure it has a weird smell when you get in and the rooms look like a motel BUT I had plenty of febreeze with me for fabrics and air so all of the nights I slept like a baby..one of the things I loved about it is that the beach was literally like 15 to 20 steps of the hotel.for the price is worth it!!! If you only need a place to sleep at night and to shower and get ready and at the same time saving money for your other expenses then this is for you! (Bring febreeze though) lol..you'll be good!

"Kind staff, Noisy shower"
Hotel was situated on the North Beach which is quite far from all the shops but if you are not a fan of crowded beaches this is the right place. Receptionist was very kind but we were freezing in the lobby due to air conditioning set on very low temperature. Rooms were nice but not very clean. Shower was literrally really noisy...!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Worse hotel ever. Don't waste your money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Reading all of the other reviews I expected the worst. Sure the carpet was dirty and the elevator was not working but overall it was a decent place to stay. Located right across from the beach. I went in thinking it was going to be horrible but I really don't have much to complain about. The staff was very helpful and friendly. My room didn't smell […] like the other reviews said it smelled very good actually nice and clean. The only thing I did not like is that I got charged a 2 dollar fee for a safe I did not use. But overall if u are just looking for a place to stay for a couple of days and trying to save money and not expecting 5 star service I would recommend staying here. It's about 10 mins from south beach too Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Must go away from there"
I could not stay there!!! I had to get away from that place. As I got there I saw the place I wanted to get away ASAP. It was nothing like the pictures shown on the site. The lobby got stuck on 1950. Bas aspect since you get in there. No elevators had to take the stairs, and the sign of out of service had been there forever. No ice machine. Bathrooms […] out of service. As I got into the room it smelled so bad, strong stink of fungus. I would never be barefoot on that rug that looked liked it had never been cleaned. Never ever stay there.

"Dirty and stinks !!!!"
The hotel was in a bad conditions, old, dirty and the room stinks. AC was broken and noise refrigerator. The only good thing i can say is that is really close to the beach and the beach is really niceGenuine Expedia guest review
I book a hotel in Miami a few months ago, But the hotel I booked had to be demolished so EXPEDIA got me this other hotel called Ocean Surf Hotel. When we got there, they were asking me for a $100 deposit after I have paid the hotel in full months ago but I was told that I would get it back on check out, anyway, the room they gave me smelled like smoke […] really bad, so I told the custodian at the front desk and they give me a2nd room which smelled like dirty water on the carpet , then they finally give me a good room but I dont know if they were worried that we complained about the first 2 rooms but this 1 smelled like clorox. I was too tired to ask for another room so I settled for this 1 after I left the door open for 20 minutes to let the clorox out the First night was ok but when I came from breakfast the next morning at IHOP cause the complimentary breakfast they claim to have was just bread an orange juice, I went on my bed and put my face on the right side of the bed and you wont believe what I smelled, the bed smelled like urine!!! When I pull back the sheets it had a big urine stain on the bottom sheet. I made a complaint but all they did was change the sheets and had the nerve to say I cant get my money back. But I wasnt sleeping in that bed again!! My fiancee still vex with me, sigh, Never again with this hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Room was ok. Needs some renovation but ok. A/C works but noisy. Hallway was stinking and dirty. Lot's of noice during the night from other guests in the hotel. Most were very young and excited.... Cheap solution for one night... Not much more. Asked additional money for the use of the safe in the room..Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location, location, weed smell"
For this price in North Beach it is a decent accommodation. The lock on our door seemed to have been broken and repaired at some point (which instilled an immediate sense of security), and the whole place was run down. The place is close to the beach and a $20 taxi fare to South Beach if you are going out (after which you will be welcomed back by a […] smell of marijuana). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location on beach for a great price but..."
Okay so this was an ideal location for a perfect price, however the hotel is very old, lots of stairs so luggage movement is a big deal, no elevator so anything above the first floor is an even bigger issue. The rooms are cramped, air conditioner loud and either on or off. Bathrooms were fine, TV was ancient. Front desk staff was really nice and helpful. […] The area has a lot of homeless but the beach area is spectacular. There are a lot of cop cars to keep it safe - but not a place for kids. I wouldn't bring mine here for sure. But if you want beach front on a budget - and you can haul your luggage anywhere - this is a good deal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
