The hotel was very nice and clean. There is a lot of fun activities going on, happy hour, coffee in the morning, some occasional party etc. It is a bit of party place (not as much as the one next door though!) so keep that in mind. It is quiet upstairs though so it's not really a problem if you don't want to party. There is no parking in the area, there […] is a valet and you have to pay, but I guess it is not abig surprise. Generally, it's very nice and clean place in a great location. Oh, and they do have a pool and beach access. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a great four nights. The staff really went above and beyond to be friendly and helpful. I was there on business so I really appreciated Lahtiff with valet (sorry if I spelled wrong). He knew my name after my first drop off and always had my car ready. My room was good but not great and the view was basically a wall and rooftop of the hotel next […] door. But the location of the hotel is pefect. I'm in South Beach a lot and I've tried a lot of hotels and location wise this one is right up there. Shopping, restaurants, bars, convenient stores, beach and boardwalk are all right there. I would definitely come back. Would get more out of the surrounding area if I wasn't working but the hotel made it easy to make the most of the free time I did have. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"South Beach - Pool Party"
I wasn't crazy about being on the first floor, with dumpsters outside, and that it was loud being near the pool, given the frequent parties. That said, the hotel is very well run. Excellent beverage service that you pay for via $20 daily resort fee but room tax is minimal. Every day til 10 am coffee, hot and iced, + tea, in lobby w/ all major papers. […] Flavored water available daily and happy hour 5-6 - bad wine or sangria. Rooms are clean, with CO Bigelow products in bathroom:) Note that beach umbrellas ($19) etc are extra fee on beach but towels and chairs are included in the $20 room fee. All in all it was what I expected and excellent lobby decor. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!"
We were taken care of the moment we stepped in the hotel. Staff is so friendly and want all their guests to be well accommodated. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and will def stay again!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing location! Close to the beach and nightlife"
The hotel staff was amazing. Lahteefe, the door man was the sweetest person! Great to see every morning. The poolside staff was also very nice. The hotel itself was great. The one problem I had was the bathroom was ridiculously small! I'm 5'8 and to sit on the toilet was a bit difficult! The room was good other than the small bathrooms! I really enjoyed […] how close the hotel was to the beach and to the night life. It was a perfecti location. I do remember I booked with the surfcomber because I thought it would be a younger crowd staying ther, the way the site made the hotel seem was that it was for a younger crowd. However, when staying there it was very family orientated. Lots of kids and families. Even though it seemed more family orientated I would recommend this hotel to everyone, and I will come back again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pick your room carefully"
Overall, this is a nice facility. Especially the pool and proximity to beach. Staff was great. BUT be careful to pick your room. I found the website confusing in terms of price/room quality. And prices changed frequently, so we canceled one reservation and made another and saved $50/night (we stayed 4 nights so it was worth it). Neither of the 2 rooms […] we had were satisfactory. The "city view" was practically on the street (hotel only has 2 floors of rooms) and a bar/restaurant across the street blasts music into the sleeping hours. This isn't a busy part of the area otherwise. Bring ear plugs!! The other room faced a building a few feet away. I'm sure if you carefully pick a room you will enjoy this hotel more.

The hotel was in a convenient location for my business travel. However, the rooms were very old with new bathroom fixtures. The air was not working properly when I arrived, but the maintenance staff quickly fixed the problem. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Unfortunately, they forgot the wakeup call at 6:30; to have a bellman at my room […] by 7:45 and my car out front by 7:45. This made me late for my meeting and started my day very stressful. Additionally, parking was $37 and there was a mandatory $22 resort fee, in addition to the cost of the room and taxes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great service from Martin and the staff"
Everyone is extremely friendly, Martin went out of his way to help us out. The only gripe is valet took a long time so call in ahead, but service from the staff made up for itGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful Hotel, nice place but..."
Pro : It 's a beautiful Hotel... Nice place, near to the beach The 'Towel Boys" and the doormen were really nice Some receptionists too Free beach chairs some free Drinks like coffe, the from 6 to 10 am/ ICE tea and Limo from 2-4p.m and vine from 5-6 pm and some fresh water the whole day The doormen were awesome! But... expensive Dirty Pool "Walls" -the […] rooms were not cleaned very well. We were there for 2 weeks... We "asked" them to clean our rooms about 10 days, but we missed them very often, because we only left the hotel from 10a.m to 1. pm and then again around 3 p.m. The rooms were cleaned about 7 Times. But there were still Chips on the Floor, hair in the Bed and so on. We dindnt get Toilet Papier reguarly, the Toilet was Dirty during 1 week! - the straff was more or less nice- make shure to have a creditcard with a Limite over for example 1500$ (150$ for each day you're sraying) - nice rooms, but no place for the luggage -the Towel holder once Fell off - didnt get any little presents as it's usuall in a 4 Star hotel -the second stairs (when you come from the Pool) didnt work spmetimes, so we had to go to the second Floor -some receptionists were unfriendly - the room cleaners were Slow and they let their Stuff in the corridor the whole day Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, private beach but so noisy"
I spent 4 nights in 2 rooms (2 adults, 3 kids). Nothing to say regarding the quality of the room except the noise if your room is Collins avenue side or worse, 2nd level Room odd number which in front of Ac engine from next building. Lovely staff who has tried to solve the issue changing my room And giving me at the end 50$ discount at check-out. Expensive: Said […] as mandatory 20$ per room per day to have access to 2 chair on beach and pool But very convenient.You must add 20$ more to have an umbrella on the beach. Which is mandatory regarding the sun. Parking 39$ per night. but free valet. A bit far away from the beginning of Ocean Drive if you have small children. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We have stayed in surfcomber for 2 nights on 06.08.2014. It is not a new hotel, its lobby and rooms are partially and mostly renovated. Location is very good, around 10 minutes walk to the start of Ocean Drive which is the main attraction in South Beach. In the decoration of the hotel there are lots of items in and out of the hotel like useless and […] irrelevant animal statutes which they need to urgently get rid off. Pool should be renovated. Beach is right in front of the hotel, sunbeds are in good condition, they charge 20 USD/day extra for umbrella. If you can find this hotel with a price below 200 USD/night for a double room, go for it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, great location"
We spent one night at the Surfcomber, and it was great. Perfect location, nice pool, beach access - the three things we wanted when we booked. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was nice and clean (the room was a bit small, but I expect that of most hotels on South Beach). Our room was facing Collins Ave., but it was surprisingly not too […] loud on a busy Saturday night. We'd certainly stay there again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and staff"
This hotel is located in the heart of miami beach with everything in walking distance (pool, beach, shops, restaurants). The staff is excellent. The pool, free cold water, sunscreen, beach is great. We had a room with two double beds for 2 adults and 2 children (12 and 15) and this is very small !! Almost no room for suitcases, cloths etc. The bathroom […] is also very small for 4 persons. Valet parking is expensive and in this area you don't need a car because everything is within walking distance. Tip: if you have a rental car and this spot is at the beginning or end of your vacation, you could start the rental period after leaving this hotel. Prices for food and drinks at the poolside are high. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location/Great people"
great location in the heart of So. Beach walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go. Very nice property, and best of all the hotel staff are all 'A' players, starting with GM, Donte, all the way down the line to every employee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location in South Beach"
The Surfcomber is an older hotel that has had a remarkable facelift. It's located on the beach with an outstanding pool area and is close to many of the top restaurants and shopping attractions in South Beach. The rooms with views of the courtyard are best. We chose not to upgrade our room ( 20 per nite) and had a view of another building and window […] about 12 feet away. The service at the concierge's desk was excellent and we found the free coffee, wine hour and other amenities all very nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Return visit to Surfcomber"
The positive aspect of my stay was this: hotel staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, location is excellent as there is so much that you can walk to around the area such as Lincoln Road, hotel room was nice and large with everything I needed. The negative aspects are this: extremely high price for parking, was not initially informed that they […] were holding $150 on my card for incidentals nightly - had to learn from my credit card company. If you are a Kimpton Member, I would surely think that could be reduced. Last issue is same as last year. The restaurant and the food are not good at all and I will not eat there again. I had breakfast looking forward to the French Toast with 'mixed Berries', as the menu said. Instead I got 3 tiny pieces of one strawberry and had to look for the waiter to give me butter but I had to ask for it. Ate down by the beach one afternoon and the fries tasted like they had sugar instead of salt on them. When I told the waiter, he said, "Really? The cook is having a bad day today". Will be going somewhere else to eat next time I stay. Bellman who I had on my departure was very, very nice!!! He seemed to go out of his way. His name began with a D. I have always had a good experience with Kimpton. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, convenient to almost anything"
Enjoyed our stay. The access to the beach is great! Plus, it has a lot of amenities. It is kid friendly, which is a plus. The only bad thing is the room service is never really available.Genuine Expedia guest review
My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at the Surfcomber ! From the second we stepped out of the cab from the airport everyone was nice , helpful and had a smile on my face ! The bellhop and the front desk attendant went above and beyond to make sure we knew about all of the things to do in the hotel and answer all of our questions ! We went to a Spanish/Mexican […] flare restaurant across the street and got to take a look at Collins Avenues night life because it was right there ! We spent the next morning before our cruise at the beach which was beautiful and comfortable ! When my boyfriend forgot his sunscreen in his luggage they were holding for us the bellhop gave him some !We also ate lunch at the Kimptons hotel which had the best Cuban we had ever eaten . When we come back to Miami we will definitely stay there ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A great South Beach find"
Surfcomber Hotel was a great find South Beach find. Nestled amongst 4 and 5 star hotels, such as SLS, Delano, The National and Ritz Carlton, this boutique hotel was vibrant, chic and trendy with wonderfully warm, helpful and professional young staff. It was right on the beach with it's own beach chairs, and a pool and gym were onsite. Excellent value. […] The restored art deco structure was cleverly decorated with a combination of modern art deco and contemporary furnishings and appointments. Walking distance to great restaurants, tour operators, the Lincoln Rd Mall shops, Miami convention centre, the Fillmore (Jackie Gleason Theatre), and much more.

Very disappointed that the pool was not working during our stay. And the bar did not have any mint for mojitos. (figured they would have a healthy supply on hand) other then that it was a good stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had an amazing time in Miami and that was due in part to the service I received at the Surfcomber. The staff was friendly and welcoming as soon as we stepped out of the airport taxi. Monty made sure that the cab driver charged us the correct amount. Gabe at the front desk was welcoming and very informative when we checked in. He let us know about […] the facilities as well as nightly events going on around the hotel. The housekeeping staff were great at keeping our room clean and cozy each day. The pool staff was outstanding in getting us situated at our chairs. The beach staff was also great in setting up our beach station for the day. Overall I had a fantastic stay at the surfcomber, it is a beautiful hotel with amazing staff, & great nightly events. I will HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone I hear of that plans on visiting the Miami Beach area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A nice stay in a great location"
I booked this hotel last minute and decided to travel alone. As a lone female traveler (alone by choice!) it is important to me that the hotel is not only pleasent, but also safe and welcoming. The Kimpton Surfcomber was just that. From the moment of my arrival and being warmly greated at the door, i managed to check in early with no trouble and listening […] to all the customer focused activiies (yoga in the beach, pool party, huge screen in pool screening the world cup...to free wine hour! Yeah!) , i felt welcomed and safe with a few options to entertain where i wanted/needed. The hotel food was better than expected...not five stars, but very edible. Also i must mention the staff were absolutly outstanding- accomodating, friendly, and absolutly interested in making your stay a success. Minor negative points: the pool is nice but a bit blah....but the sea location totaly makes up for it. At the beach...you have to pay extra from the fee resort for an unbrella which i thought should be included...and a real minus...outside people were allowed in the hotel to use the pool facilities- this lead to some very dubious people being present in the hotel pool. Overall very good apart from small mishaps Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Exceptional Hotel and Staff next to the Beach"
This was my first time in Miami and the Surfcomber was really exceptional. I love the decor, the hospitality was phenomenal, the room was perfect, and the beach was right at our finger tips. From the moment we walked into the hotel the bellman graciously opened the door and was so attentive in a genuine way. The manager quickly learned our names and […] always greeted us by first name. He gave us wonderful recommendations and always asked about our adventures in Miami. The beach crew was also attentive and checked in on us regularly. i loved the way they keep the beach so clean and maintained. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly staff, great location"
The Surfcomber is staffed with a very willing and friendly group of individuals who want to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable time while staying at their hotel. From the taxi stand to the front desk to the concierge to the beach attendants, everyone does a top-notch job making sure to accommodate the needs of their guests. This hotel is in a quieter, […] less hectic part of South Beach, right along Collins Drive within walking distance to several nice restaurants and hotspots. The beach access is great and convenient, and they really take care of you out there. The pool is nice, too, and open 24/7 for guests. While a stay here is pricey, that will be the case in all of Miami Beach and at least here you get a friendly staff who tries to give you the best bang for the buck. The rooms are well-equipped and in line with what you should expect on South Beach. The location of the rooms in the hotel makes sleep possible and puts you close to all the action at the same time. I strongly recommend this place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I had stayed 4 days in Surfcomber . The staff was very nice and kind. Also the hotel facility is good.

"Great long weekend getaway"
Had a fabulous stay at this hotel. Rooms are cozy but fit the bill of what you need. Rooms were cleaned in a timely fashion. Pool was excellent, sun was strong so I definitely recommend trying to score a lounger near an umbrella. Staff was helpful and drinks were not lacking as others posted. Early check in cannot be accommodated on weekends, ours was […] almost delayed, which made me upset however staff more than made up for it by sending us a bottle of champagne when we were settled. Staff wants you to be happy and it shows. Our only downfall was the restaurant inside hotel. Husband was served a raw hamburger, after a 16 minute wait, he received the same burger. We weren't happy with the length of the wait, efficient to see it was the same burger. What were they doing with it that entire time? (Outside pool uses a different kitchen so order there when poolside). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
