"Not worth the money"
They have really tried to present this hotel as three stars, but you can't put lipstick on a pig. With the amount of hotels in the same area, I would have rather paid more for a nicer more updated hotel with better amenities. Please choose another hotel where the pictures on the internet are not as deceiving.Genuine Expedia guest review
"For the price its perfect!"
There was no room service really. You could call a number and they deliver, but no menu etc. There was no toothbrush in case you forgot one. I did. But the location is perfect and you can not beat the price! I paid $209 on a last minute room and I was thrilled with that. Also, I forgot a sweater in the room and lost and found shipped it to me just days […] later after I called and requested that. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place to have a home away from home"
A few buddies and I were down for WMC. This places was in a good location. There was plenty of room for all of us. The place was clean and seemed to have recent modern upgrades.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location, outdated comfort"
Nice location. Good ammenities but in bad shape. Room cleanliness arguable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location dumb staff"
Great location. If your just here to party and sleep it's amazing. But staff us really slow. Like to extend your stay you have to check out then check back in. Pool is gross but location locationGenuine Expedia guest review
I came here to celebrate my 30th birthday an enjoyed the hotel so much im going back this year!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place for the price"
Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Bathroom was small. Nothing to write home about, but if you're looking for a place close to the beach and the nightlife for a reasonable price this fits the description. Front desk service very slow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was comfortable. I was given a suite as my room was not ready or available upon check in. It was more room than I needed, but clean and comfortable, though it did smell a bit musty. The air conditioning did not work, but the forced air through the vents was enough to keep the room comfortable. The hotel is in a good location, the pool is clean, […] the bar has a pretty decent happy hour, and the staff was very courteous. If you're looking for a 5-star place, this isn't it, but it is comfortable and the staff is very good. I would consider staying here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The photos are actually exactly what it looks like! I feel like they need to include more pics of the walk up to the lobby doors! It has a very tropical feel and the lobby always smelled divine! Needless to say, it was all very clean. The rooms are cute and simple and compared to the other smaller boutique hotels I would say the size of the rooms is […] about the same, my friend and I had a double and we never felt cramped. We don't like people in our room so we kept the Do Not Disturb sign up for our three night stay, but when we asked the guy in the hall for towels, he did not hesitate to give us plenty more.

"Nice but far."
It was a nice hotel but a far walk from the restaurants and bars on Ocean Ave.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old, but maintained"
The staff demonstrated great customer service. Carlos and Jose in particular were outstanding. The hotel itself is older, but it's being maintained as best it can be. We had a couple of issues with plumbing because of the age of the property, but the immediate response from the staff to rectify the situation was phenominal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My family had a good time at this hotel. Very close to the beach and few blocks away from Lincoln Rd.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location - Near convention center"
Good spot if you have to work at the convention center. The room was clean and the hotel staff were very friendly and professional. I'll probably stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful hotel close to shopping and restaurantsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would definitely stay here again."
Newly renovated rooms, very clean and updated. The staff was helpful, however, Carlos stood out amongst his peers!!! The most cheerful, friendly, staff member. Willing to do anything to help our stay more enjoyable. He truly is an asset to the Dorchester!!!!! The pool does need to be thoroughly cleaned though. The staff painted the concrete around the […] pool when we were there, but with such a prime location, the pool needs to be attended to. I loved the central location, and would book the Dorchester again!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved the location. The hotel in general is small but cozy. The rooms are big and beautiful. Very clean. Loved the decorations. The bed is comfortable. Great staff. Overall i enjoyed my stay and will deffinetly be coming back!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"We had fun"
It is not top of the line luxury, but me and my friends think it was awesome. We stood at a suite and had access to a kitchen and living room.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is an excellent choice for someone looking for a hotel that is both simple and elegant, it offers a kind of European ambiance in a South Beach setting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was traveling alone and wanted a quiet, safe hotel within walking distance of the restaurants and shoppingGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed in the suites, which are tucked away behind the main hotel. This affords quiet, restful nights, away from the music at the bar and street noise. I enjoyed the art deco style of the hotel and furnishings, as well as unique touches including the floating swing and the Player Piano. We had a few initial disappointments concerning the availability […] of a suite on the second floor, as requested, as well as technical difficulties with our doorlock, but the staff went out of their way to fix everthing asap. The best feature about this hotel other than it's location is it's staff, from the front desk, to housekeeping and Carlos the amazing doorman, who all go out of their way to make sure you are happy with your stay. This is quite rare, and was a pleasant surprise and the icing on the cake to a wonderful vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
no toothpaste, toothbrush, shaving cream or razors mandatory resort fee is garbage - $15/day for wifi, happy hour (which is only 1 hour and the drinks are tiny and there is only 1 drink per night)Genuine Expedia guest review

"nice hotel.nothing too special just clean&simple"
Very helpful staff. Clean room. Nothing fancy. You will be ok staying at this place for a week if you want to save money. Great location. AC, iron, TV, fridge and all is there for you. I liked it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Would recommend this hotel for its location and convenience on South beach. Otherwise a bit rundown and outdated, but pretty clean. Rooms had hardwood floors which is a plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenient location at a reasonable price. This was our third stay at the Dorchester.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location was great! But I won't rush back there."
The proximity to the convention center and Lincoln Rd was ideal for our plans. The rooms not the cleanest or brightest I've found in S. Beach. We were told at check in that our rooms were right next door to each other...not even close! They did have on site parking wich is a VERY big perk in that area of town! Just don't leave with your car for dinner […] and expect to find an open spot when you get back! We stayed in the back part of the hotel and there was ALOT of noise (trucks, etc.) throughout the night. The water never got hot, only warm. Not my favorite place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great stay. Friendly staff. Only downfall was our standard room had a refrigerator but no microwave. Reserve a suite if you need both. If you don't want the 24hr ocean drive action at your doorsteps it's a perfect location. Easy walk to the heart of the ocean drive action.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A bit run down, RUDE bartender"
My trip started off pretty well when we were upgraded for free to a suite. Unfortunately, this hotel is a bit run down. The furniture, towels, and bedding have seen better days. The front desk staff was quite dismissive and didn't acknowledge me until they were ready to help me. A simple "i'll be right with you" goes a long way. My main complaint came […] from the blonde bartender who refused to open a bottle of wine we bought. Her exact words were "I'm really tired of people asking for free things like cups and straws. I work for tips. I'll open your bottle for like $5 or something." Again, kindly say, "I can help you with that, the corkage fee is $5" and I would be fine with that. Fortunately, Jovani (sp?) and Edward at the front desk in the evening were extra helpful even when the bartender was rude to them too. Overall, the hospitality at this hotel is very low.

"It was decent"
Overall it was a decent hotel, but the room we initially got felt like it was in the basement of the hotel. They told us we had a pool view and it was really a whole. Inch of bushes outside our door the surrounded the pool. (Don't take room 128) If it wasn't one thing it was another. We changed rooms after the first night. Wifi service was that great […] considering we paid for it. But the location wasn't bad considering it was close to the beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean hotel near the beach"
Hotel employees lacked in customer service and friendliness!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not my normal type of place"
I was at South Beach on business. The hotel was nice and I appriciated the Art Deco style.. I grew up in South Florida and the building reminded me of the old Florida that is long gone. I under stand that South Beach is a party town and the people in the next room started up about 11:00 pm and kept is going. Who ever they were they were living proof […] that idiots should not drink. My wife, son and I walked around S Beach and stopped at the hotel bar. wife and I got a bottled beer and son got a can of coke. The bill was $17.50, the hotel also hits you with a $15.00 internet fee. Everywhere we went there was a fee or excessive cost. There should be a sign once you enter Island-Welcome to South Beach, Now Empty Your Wallet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Dissapointingly bad room"
Arriving at the hotel at 22.00 at night there was no parking anymore available which causes us to park the car 20 blocks away and they put us in a handicap room in between the bar and the gym, outside, not in the hotel building, next to the pool. The room was poorly designed, very simple and bathroom was white and more white with a shower that made […] the whole room wet. Staff was not very nice, no apologies that it was the only room left, no offer to change the next day. Breakfast is not included and you better have breakfast in the various restaurants around the hotel for better quality and atmosphere. The only good thing about this room was the noice, there was none. And the location close to the beach. But for that there are plenty other options. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It was great"
It's a great hotel everyone should stay there I would stay again if they will give me the same nightly rateGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Found this place last minute, not one complaint worked out great for us!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved staying here! the staff was very friendly. Our room got upgraded to a suite so we were really hype about that. 3 blocks away from the main attraction. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, okay hotel."
Dorchester hotel is in a good location to be near the beach and the all action on South Beach. But the comfort of the actual stay was not so great. The A/C unit in our room was very old and was not working properly. The room was very stuffy and warm(this is in the middle of August).We notified the front desk with 30 minutes of checking into our room. […] They said they could not switch us because the rooms were fully booked. The staff were not very helpful in trying to make our stay comfortable. If it wasn't for the stuffy room I would give this hotel a way better review. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to nightlife."
It was an okay hotel. Had a few issues, close to beach and night clubs which was nice. Everything walking distance. Wouldn't stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great price. Great location."
If it wasn't for the fact that I'm planning on moving to Miami in half a year, I would certainly stay at his hotel again. Everything at the hotel is just as described on their website. Due to an error on their end, they even upgraded my room from a standard double bedroom to a suite (which is just like an apartment with fully functional kitchen) for […] the same price. Swimming pool is heated and open 24hrs. Parking is a bit limited but there is nighttime security to make sure the vehicles are safe. Overall, an excellent experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The proximity to the beach is great but that's about all this hotel has going for it. It is an old building so there is mold and lots of humidity in the rooms. We switched rooms and the humidity was terrible in both. The AC was good for nothing and the beds were lumpy and uncomfortable. The lobby was decent and the pool was ok except it had poor sun […] exposure due to the surrounding building. The furniture looks nice at first glance but not comfy at all.

"Good last minute selection"
Pleasantly surprised with our last minute selection as we were central to our our activities and just a block or so away from the beach. Great hotel for price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were NOT as described online. There are plenty of hotels nearby, skip this one and choose another. This hotel is in need of a complete renovation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location; highly convenient and accessible"
At first I was placed in room 109, which was extremely warm as the A/C was not working efficiently. Once I was moved to room 107 (which I originally requested during my reservation), everything was wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location, nice hotel, room just ok"
The hotel is in an excellent location: few blocks from Lincoln road, restaurants, bars etc. The best part is the sister-hotel in front of the beach (hotel marseilles), so you can get beach chairs and umbrella without paying for the more expensive hotel (though, they indirectly charge you for it in the "resort fee" which also includes pretty bad wifi). […] The pool is nice. "Free" happy hour every day (you tip $1/drink). The room was okay. Bathroom light made an annoying noise and toilet had lots of problems. THe room was too close to the lobby and entrance, but we didn't hear too much noise. They didn't have parking for either of the nights we stayed, which was annoying but found free street parking nearby, so we saved some money. In summary: decent hotel for the price, good location, just okay room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach and clubs. Nice enough rooms."
Major complaint was shower pressure and hot water terrible.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel- close to Miami Beach amenities"
A decent hotel, good value for the location. Don't be fooled by the photos though. They do market the hotel as more luxurious than it actually is by disclosing beautiful stunning photos. However, it's more of a value stay hotel (think of a nicer Days Inn). Nonetheless, really no complaints. Location was good- close to shopping, the beach, and only several […] blocks from Ocean Dr. Staff was friendly and helpful, rooms were usually cleaned very well and on time. Don't expect anything more than a casual stay though. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel close to the beach"
the hotel was nice, but there was construction going on, when I looked up this hotel the reviews were great but they also said there was construction and the reviews were from a year ago I think that is too long for renovations. My room had leak from the ceiling that they came and looked at then they put towels down instead of fixing it. They also said […] that they had a private beach area that they charged extra for and it was at another hotel so I didn't use it and they still charged me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best Hotel Experience Ever!!"
I travel a lot and must say that my experience with the Dorchester Hotel was amazing!! The staff is wonderful and the rooms were great!! The front desk called our room within 5 min of checking in to make sure that we had everything we needed- very impressed! Great location- wonderful bar- and beach access through their sister hotel a few blocks away. […] The Dorchester Hotel is managed very well- I will be back!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel & great staff!!!"
The hotel is about two blocks from the beach. I didn't get a chance to see how the breakfast bar was being they was close the day we was interested. The doors to the rooms need adjustments because the light from the hallway shines in your room due to the door being cracked. If your room is by the street DON'T EXPECT ANY SLEEP B/C YOU HEAR EVERYTHING […] from the outside. The walls are VERY THIN.The staff was very pleasant & nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a family"
Very pleasant, still and clean hotel. Close to beach. Friendly personal. Good for family.Genuine Expedia guest review
"More than we expected"
I really have to admit that I was positively surprised by the hotel. When we checked in the service was nice and friendly. We noticed some kind of scent. Some might like it others not. The room itself was like an apartment with kitchen, dining area, bedroom, living room, bathroom, balcony, 2 TVs. The 2 queen size beds had both nice and comfy foam mattresses. […] And overall during the night it was not to loud. So I would definitely go there again. The hotel itself is close to Lincoln Rd and Ocean Drive. The room was clean. Downstairs you'll find a bar that is set back from the Collins Ave. So you can sit outside and there is not too much noise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
