The first thing I didnt like is that once in reception the charge you 50$ deposit, and I made the booking in expedia.com and they should warn you about this. We left this hotel a week ago and I'm still waiting for my 50 bucks refund. The room had a small lamp that didnt work, also the toilet was very old and didnt flush properly... and embarrasing situation […] happened. The recepcionist attitude was far from kind...

"You get what you pay for, but this was just yuck!"
Was only staying in Miami Beach for one night so I figured I'd do it on the cheap. After all, Ocean Surf is on the beach, so what if it's not the Four Seasons. But the condition of the building was just unacceptable. I don't take pleasure in writing a scathing review like this; the family running the hotel from the friendly young lady at the desk to […] the gentleman checking me out the next morning seemed to be nice people, but...I'm sorry.....yuck! The building smelled horrible, the elevator was a little scary and I didn't feel safe. .....it's only fair that potential tourists to Miami Beach understand what they are in for :( Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"you get what you pay"
hotels in Miami beach were so expensive and we had no choice other than pay less to get a place just to sleep and run.I don't call these Hotel a place to rest but what else you can do. this city rates are high and you have no choice unless you sleep in your car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice location ... But hotel ok"
It's just a place to crash period. Service wasn't that great ... The receptionist was barely able to speak English or his accent was incomprehensibleGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't be fooled by the photos on-line"
The hotel was dirty, and I thought I was staying in a box. It was to small for the 4 guess that I booked the room for, and it had an old smell. When I looked out of the window, I could only see another hotel. The hotel is located on North Beach and not South Beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Do not go there!!!!!"
Everything was old and dirty. The building is falling apart! Big mistake!!Genuine Expedia guest review

The Hotel Is Grungy Looking But Its Cheap And Right On The Beach. That Being Said People Are Constantly Tracking Sand In All Over The Building. Poor Mans paradiseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a family friendly hotel"
Mattresses were to old you could feel the springs, bathroom was dirty, specially the shower, it wasn't clean and it had hair from a razor on the soap dish. I seriously wanted to leave but I didn't want to put my family through it. Besides I found out about it after everyone was sleeping. We also had to pay for parking bc the hotel doesn't have its own […] so you have to park it on the street. The only good thing about it was the beach is across the street from the hotel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"right across the street from the beach, but old"
right across from north Miami beach, but the hotel is pretty rundown. There was duct tape in the shower. The bathroom tiles were cracked. The caulking was peeling away from the wall in multiple places. The carpet was pretty questionable...Genuine Expedia guest review
Not a good place to stay, I had to take a shower in my slides. They also kept $10 of my deposit due to there towel having a small mark on it. They also didn't have any wash cloths.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overrated, disappointing hotel"
Only to rooms per floor have a window towards the beach. The other rooms have only a window facing the wall of the next building just in front of it. The room interior has not been changed since 1960. When you enter it you smell a penetrant smell of disinfectant products. A hygienically unideal carpet is covering all the floors which collects all the […] sand you bring up from the beach. Personell at reception is not friendly and you will have to make a deposit of 100$ for a possible breakage. According the room I had, nothing in it is even worth 100$! All in all a 100% disappointing experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Could be such a fun place."
I am a motel 6 kinda guest. In and out. So long as it is clean and functional, I am good. This hotel was somewhat clean and somewhat dis-functional. In general, the bed sheets were clean, but the carpet was filthy, the toilet plugged, the phone not working and the door locks had been jimmied at some point and repaired. The pictures of the rooms were […] clearly not of any room we were shown. The front desk spoke rudimentary english and charged additional $ for the safe in the room, asked for a $100 deposit (refundable). On the up side, the maintenance guy was great. Felt like we really got to know him after his 3rd trip to the room. WIFI is NOT available in the rooms, you need to go down to the front porch for that, but the other guests were all there and they were fun. The neighborhood is Cuban, the food fantastic and the coffee to die for. It is fun trying to figure out what to order as the waitresses often speak limited english.

"The hotel is not worth my money. Smell, unclean"
It was such a nightmare, unclean everything's very dirty. I think the hotel need to renovate.Genuine Expedia guest review
"HORRIBLE! AVOID THIS DUMP!!!"
Rundown, old and disgusting, they use photoshopped pics, it looks nothing like this. I should have believed what the other reviewers said, they were correct on everything! Disgruntled clerk at desk seemed put out to answer any of my simple questions, not helpful in the least. She gave me key and when I enter room and it's completely trashed. Maid comes […] by and starts cussing in front of my kids about the huge mess (as if we did it!), and tells me to come back later after I explain I just got my key and did not make this mess, I just arrived to it. It was already 6 pm at this point, I had been driving all day long and the last thing I wanted to was go drive around more and waste gas but it was raining and there was no where to sit in small "lobby" (only place to get internet). Next day discover that we were left only 2 very small old towels so no one gets a shower. And to top it off they are now claiming that I stole towels and charging my credit card $47 for towels I didn't even use, let alone steal -NOTICE THE SCAM they are running, HOW MANY OTHER REVIEWERS HAS THIS HAPPENED TOO WITH THE "STOLEN TOWELS" !!! TOTAL SCAM this place is! Save yourself the hassle and waste of $ and stay elsewhere! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worst hotel ever"
This was the worst hotel experience ever! This place is not even suitable for a homeless person. The entire building needs to be washed away! Worst experience ever. I didn't even care that I wasted $100 on this place, I could not sleep in this room even if it was free!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Cheap beach stay"
This hotel was so-so. The spot is right off of the beach, had decent bedding, a fridge and tv. Parking is available for a dollar an hr, from 8-6 (it's essentially beach parking, no discount provided by the hotel). Walking in it seems more like a hostel environment than a hotel, and 100 was a bit steep for being so far from south beach. The bathroom […] was terrible! The tub was severely rusting around the drain, the towel holders were loose. The shower head was rusted and gave apprehension over the quality of the water coming out of it.

"don't ever want to staty here"
Super bad hotel. Don't be deceived with the picture of their "lobby". Smelly, unclean rooms. Air condition holder was absent and you can even see outside from that! There were mosquitoes in the room! Never pick up phone call (I literally saw the phone ringing in front of them several times, but they didn't care to pick it up). Only plus point is the […] neighborhood which is really good. Easy access to beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"ONLY perk is the beach across the street."
The room was stale and stuffy and unclean. There were "working girls" in the lobby and stairwells. The place was like a set from a bad horror movie and I felt I would be a victim of a crime had I stayed. I took one look at the place and immediately called a cab and found somewhere else to spend my vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
First the hotel location is nice close to the beach.the hotel room was not nice look to old . Another thing is why we have to pay parking in the morning time.other wise okGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Cheap Hotel by the Beach"
For the price you pay the hotel amenities are going to be that of a motel. This isnt a fancy hotel, but at the same time it is also not a nasty dingey dirty hotel either. It is a nice place, the rooms are clean, and for the price probably the best hotel you can find. What makes this place shine is the location. It is litearly right off the beach. You […] wake up in the morning, walk out the door and you can hear the ocean. Its breathtaking. So if you are looking for a place to just sleep, put your stuff in and spend your day by the beach this is the hotel. Oh and another plus is the parking. Lots of parking all around the hotel, its meter parking but its free after 6 pm and only a dollar per hour otherwise. Enjoy! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.

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
