"Greenview, a critical review"
Rooms had a Dutch/European feel. Bathrooms were about the size you'd find on a cruise ship~inner cabin (extremely small even for a boutique hotel). Shower had a little bit of mold, shower head was in desperate need of cleaning, shower pressure was less than expected, shower fixtures looked cheap quality, soap was basic glycerin which over-dried your […] skin, and the body lotion was not boutique quality. The Bed was good and the selection of pillow sizes was pleasing. The continental Breakfast was average and could be improved by adding some fresh fruit like an orange or banana. My biggest compaint was the Wi-Fi. Do not plan to have any at this hotel. The signal strength was good in the common areas but not the rooms, however, the host server (service provider) was down more than 60% of the time so the signal strength didn't really matter. The hotel needs to get a new service provider. The room outer door was also keyed and not electronically carded, which is standard in better boutiques. The staff were very nice and the location was awesome (80 feet from lincoln road mall). For the price, however, I would still rate the hotel in the "average/good" category.

"excellent location on South Beach"
Excellent location. Every is close, it's in the hearth of South Beach. The minus is the room size, it's very small to acommodate 3 people or more. The restroom is very small too, but the room is comfortable and functional. I will book again definitely.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was attending an event at the Convention Center and the hotel's location was great. The same in regard to Lincoln Road and the Beach. I did find the closet small. The in-room safe and refrigerator located in the closet made it difficult to hang clothing properly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay away from "Greenview Hotel""
no charme, no beauty,no comfort, not welcoming, all steril and cold. No comfortable place to sit in the room (1 plastic chair),lobby or front facing noisy Washington Blvd. Terrible towels ,bathroom not big enough for 1 person. Rooms where barely cleaned, bads were barely made. I cleaned the toilette with our towelsGenuine Expedia guest review
"For Real Americans"
Great hotel. Right in the heart of South Beach and very close to the effervescent Lincoln Mall. Stay there. Those who complain that it is a "flea bag" hotel are over-stating their disappointment in not being at a Holiday Inn, Ritz Carlton, etc. One of those it is not. But the rooms were immaculate if a bit small, and comfortable if a bit sparse. But […] remember, you are a visitor in South Beach, so what are you doing staying in your room? You should be out enjoying the neighborhood and locals, and there is plenty of that in the neighborhood of the Greenview Hotel. The front patio area of the Greenview is wonderful for breakfast and lunch, and Maria behind the front desk is a hoot. Don't hestitate to stay there if you can be gracious in your expectations!

"Great budget hotel."
Greenview is a great budget hotel and I would recommend it. We went for Art Basel and the location was perfect!!! Beach is two blocks away and the Delano is right there. There were irons, small ironing boards and free wi-fi in our rooms. The one time internet stopped working, they restarted it and it worked again in 5 minutes. The water pressure was […] NOT great and I had a hard time rinsing my hair. I was a little wary of returning to south beach because years ago another hotel room in a different hotel was robbed during Basel. Greenview has safes in the room that are big enough for my laptop, ipad and a camera. This was a huge relief. Nobody broke into our room, but the large safe gave me piece of mind. Greenview does not have a place to store you luggage except in the lobby. There is someone at the desk at all times, but I would advise arriving after 3 and leaving before 11 to avoid this.

"Great location, bad rooms."
GREAT Location....but the rooms are not that great. I had to switch rooms because the room smelled horrible. At first they told me there were no other rooms available...but after some complaining they somehow found an available room for us. The new room smelled also...but not nearly as bad. The bathroom is very small and uncomfortable. They dont have […] free parking...so be prepared to pay $20 a night to park your car there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Fantastic Art Deco experience"
The staff is top notch and the location is awesome. I could see the video show on the wall of the convention center from my suite windows. Everything is within walking distance. Be sure to call ahead to arrange valet or park on the block behind the hotel in Public Parking (twenty five for overnight and must be out by noon). It's a bummer not having […] parking on site. Cuban restaurant a couple doors down was also great! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice room for reasonable for a business traveller."
It actually is a nice place, but it is an older hotel with few amenities....... There are window AC units which work okay, but they are noisy..... There are no work out facilities or anything like that... On the plus side, the Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and is a good service. Also, on the plus, side, the room was clean and in good order. […] The staff was very friendly It's a great place to go if your just in for a few days on a business trip and need no frills. If you have children, they will not be happy here..... there is no pool or playground for them. . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Walking distance to Miami Beach Convention Center"
The staff is very corteous and helpful. Some minor visible maintenence issues but not a deal breaker. The location is just perfect: by Lincoln Rd, close to the beach and within walking distance to the convention center.The experience was good after all and I intend to stay there again in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent stay! Superb location for a steal. Staff was extremely helpful, accomodating, and genuinely hospitable. Eclectic room and bathroom (bathroom was small but renovated nicely and kept with the art deco theme. You have Licoln mall right across the street and the beaches and boutiques only a stones throw away. If you're looking for a great experience […] without breaking the bank, come here!

A nice hotel in Washington Avenue. The quality is more than fine for the price, service is really pleasing, they have free continental breakfast, free WiFi and free clean towels for the beach every day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"better walk- cause no parking around"
not happy- yes older hotel, but need to upgrade-- room was so hot- may as well have slept outside. No parking nearby- had valet- but if I wanted my car, wait wait wait.... don't plan staying there again, but have other hotels aroundGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Pleasant staff, GREAT location, clean and spacious room.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff were very nice! especially,this lady named Maria at the reception area.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Greenview is a boutiuqe hotel with an excellent location on South Beach. We had a room with two double beds, it was big enough for three people. Bathroom is very small, but it was clean. Since the hotel is a block away from the night life, it is quiet at night so you can actually sleep. The air conditioning in our room was a small window like unit, […] it was not able to cool the room during day time in the July heat. That was not a big problem since we didn't spend much time in the room during day time. Be aware that you have to use valet parking, it is $20 per day and if you need your car it takes about 20 minutes for them to bring it to the hotel. No problem, as long as you are aware of it.

nice hotel and a friendly receptionist. Air-condition was not good, WIfI was terrible...a lot times no WIFI or really bad signal and TV signal was bad...some channels you can't watch because of the signal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"DON'T BE MISLED BY PRETTY PICTURES!!!"
This hotel is overpriced and overrated. The pics are misleading: they look like a modern, clean, recently renovated first-class hotel. However, the disappointment begins quickly when you get to the front door of the room: the door paint is peeling and, once inside, everything looks and feels cheap. The A/C was an old window-mounted unit that made more […] noise than it cooled (most other people I talked to had similar problems), there was serious grout in the tiles, and on the flat screen TV some channels (like ABC) were unwatchable. There is no easy way to print your boarding pass (you have to email the receptionist!) and before checking out, the front desk has to send someone to inspect your room and confirm no damage was done. There's hardly any insulation from noise. So, the location is great and that's the best one can say - but given the quality, price, limitations on service...don't stay here. Expedia should control the rating better, and the hotel should be notified about either improving quality, price, or both (and tempering their rating). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"An Horrible experience"
First, the location was awesome. The hotel stay was horrible. I came to Miami for the Miami Heat play-offs and stayed at this hotel. The shower was very dirty, didnot have hot woter, The room had an funny inclean odor and the staff seemed un-moved. It was like they didnot care to correct the situation. I finally got hot water . I thought it could have […] been a much better experience if they would pay close attention to the obvious. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Of you're going to see a show at the Fillmore and/or you want to shop on Lincoln, this is the place. It's a little bit of a hike to the beach, but we brought bikes (excellent move, btw). The staff was really accommodating. They had valet for $20. I will stay here every time I'm in south beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Does not live up to pictures"
Staff rude, rooms nothing like pictures, service is not important to this hotel. Hallway smells and the hotel just needs more attention. I will never stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Greenview South Beach - GREAT Location"
Right off Lincoln Rd. 1 block from the beach, very basic amenities, elevator fits 2 people, bathroom small, water pressure low in shower and toilet. Continental breakfast, muffins and froot loops. Adequate place to crash for a night or two.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was very clean - the bathrooms are extremely small and hot water is an issue - The breakfast is OK at best - nothing to talk about - I actually chose to buy on the road. TV channels dont work - 1 spanish station and an english major network that doesn't transmit properly. The only reason I would stay at this hotel is because the location vs […] price is fantastic.

"Great Location. Renovated rooms. Otherwise, fair"
On the positive side, the room had new floors and the hotel is conveniently located. Service was descent. Bed was reasonably comfortable. Now the bad: Room was tiny; walls are thin and my neighbors were loud, so ineeded air plugs to sleep. I had a humongous cockroach legs up near my vanity that the maid somehow missed when cleaning. Elevator was very […] small and didnt feel particularly safe. Poor water pressure in the shower and it was difficult to set the pressure to anything warm. Lobby looks a little beat up. Not sure what else is available in such a great location, but I've stayed at comparable Motel 6's elsewhere at 30% of the cost. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"It is an "OK" hotel."
Staff were not the friendliest, nor the most compotent. Also they did not have a corkscrew in the room, and seemed confused that someone would ask. The hotel is a terrific location for the price, but needs some serious TLC. The continental breakfast was fine, but no better. Bed was comfortable, and room was quiet. All in all the experience was "OK" […] but nothing to surprise you on the pleasant side... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms were recently remodeled howevern the seemed to have done a halfway job with the bathrooms. The hotel is not bad. If you are looking for frills or five star service this place is not for you. If you just need a place to stay at night when exploring Miami Beach with a great location, then consider staying here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Add $20-$25 for o/night parking, but wifi worked."
The Greenview is an older building and shows it: the elevator is miniscule and most people take the stairs. The counter at check-in has two huge divots out of it like someone attacked it with a hammer. The rooms are as pictured on the website, minimalist and white with blond wood, but the bathroom tiling was broken in (large-ish) places and the floor […] had not been swept - none of us have long black hair and it was all over the corners and edges of the room. On the plus side, we booked a room with two beds through hotels.com and that is exactly what we got. Pluses from a maintenance standpoint: the wifi worked well, all of the lights worked and so did the plumbing, and the closet smelled faintly of fresh paint. I get the impression that if they need painting, it gets done, but tile work, not so much. The point is (I guess), the price is cheap for south Miami Beach, the place is less than a block from the Lincoln Ave pedestrian-mall, which is sparkly fun at night when trying to choose a restaurant, and it's also less than a block from the Fillmore, if you like the kinds of concerts that book in there. On the other hand, if you can get a much nicer room for less than $30 more, you should probably do that; there is no parking so you will have that expense canceling out whatever you saved by booking here (assuming free parking at the hypothetical other place). Note: there will be homeless people camping in doorways in this area -- they seem non-threatening. Assume there will be two sets of towels in the room at check-in, ASK up front if you need more; this is not a full-service kind of place. We avoided the cereal-dispenser "free breakfast."

This hotel is located perfectly if you are planning on attending the convention center, going to the beach, as well as being within walking distance to many amazing restaurants and Lincoln Ave. The condition of the hotel is more "optimistic" in the pictures than when you first walk in, however, it is clean and affords the basic amenities at a fair price […] and, as long as you aren't planning on actually spending your vacation in the hotel, you are set. I would stay at the Greenview hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable bed, that's about it"
The room is extremely small .Big enough for the bed and two night stands only. Bed was comfy. Room was clean. Bathroom was tiny. Shower only. No room to put out any toiletries. Hotel is very old and it shows. Elevator not to be used by those who may be claustrophobic! It's barely big enough for one person and a suitcase. Evening desk person was very […] nice and helpful. Morning person kind of sarcastic. No parking. They do have valet parking in one of the community lots, but there is no place to park while waiting the 10 minutes or so for the valet people to come. We parked around the corner, a couple blocks away and walked to the hotel. If you have trouble walking, could be a problem. Hotel is across the street to Lincoln Mall Road, which was very good as the purpose of our visit was to go a club there. Would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice No-Frills Lodging"
This hotel is very conveniently located near Lincoln Road Mall and in very, very easy walking distance of the Miami Beach Convention Center. It appears somewhat hidden as you drive by, so it is very easy to miss. Parking is this hotel's biggest problem, as there are only three spaces on the street in front of the hotel and those are almost always full. […] The valet takes 20 minutes to respond (per the hotel staff), so there is a window of up to 20 minutes for the city to tow your car away while waiting for valet service. Whatever you do, DO NOT park in the bank parking lot next door. (again, per the hotel staff). Inside, the hotel is obviously an older building but it has been nicely modernized. Everything--right down to the faux bamboo flooring--appears to be from IKEA, but it feels much more solid than the IKEA furniture in my house. Everything in my room, including the countertops, desktop, sheets, pillows, bedside tables, etc etc were white, so it felt very modern and almost institutional; on the positive side, all the white made it very apparent that the room was actually quite clean. It may not be the case for all rooms, but my room was quite small... about the same size as an interior cabin on a cruise ship. The bathroom is very European, complete with a perfectly square and very tiny shower (at 6'1" and 300#, I barely fit in the shower and both of my arms touched opposite walls the entire time). The water pressure was minimal, so showering was somewhat unpleasant. This hotel's redeeming qualities are its location and the friendliness of its staff. Obviously, humans have good days and bad days, so there is an inherent inconsistency in the quality of service... but everyone I encountered was exceedingly pleasant. Amenities are sparse... there is free wifi (something you won't find at the Hilton or the Ritz), and it's actually quite a speedy connection. There is also a free continental breakfast, but it only consists of bagles, OJ, coffee and cereal (of cours Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a last minute decision to stay at this hotel. Loved the location near the beach at South Beach. Hotel service and front desk was great, but wasn't so sure about the homeless hanging out near the alley and storefronts nearby. Very close to the Lincoln Road shopping center, Espanola way and Ocean drive restaurant area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyed my stay"
The area of the hotel was great and in walking distance of various restaurants and shopping areas. It was a nice stay. The bathroom needs to be updated but we could smell the cleaning products once we entered and it was really clean. I will stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"More basic than I was expecting but not bad"
The hotel was more basic than I was expecting with breakfast a make-it-yourself affair with polystyrene cups, orange juice, coffee and croissants basically. We had a problem with the blind in our room but the staff did fix this. So, not quite as luxurious as I expected but the staff were friendly attentive and it is a great location in central South […] Beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Poor service and un-met expectations"
The hotel was in a great area but unfortunatly the service was horrible. We arrived early in the morning and were told we could store our bags. We again stopped into the hotel at 130 to see if we could check in as we were heading out on a boat trip for the afternoon. We were told we could not. We changed in the hotel lobby washroom and left our luggage. […] When we returned in the evening to check in to our KING SIZE bed room, our room had been given away. We were provided with a single bed. The lady at the front desk was very unhelpful and offered us nothing more then two single beds. Needless to say, considering it was our one year anniversary we were extremly upset. Never will book this hotel again. Don't waste your time with the poor service they provide.

"Paying for location"
This hotel has a great location close to Lincoln road shopping centre and restaurants. However the guy who checked us in wasn't to interested in customer service and spent a lot of time talking in Spanish to another gentleman behind the counter, we then found we had paid the full amount of the hotel on arrival and Hotels.com had never taken the initial […] deposit as they said they would. The room was basic and we had no view whatsoever , we basically looked onto another window of an apartment block behind us. The blinds wouldn't move up and the air con unit was filthy. The bathroom was very small and we had to take the toilet roll out of the holder to lift the toilet seat up. The free breakfast was good but basic. The free wifi works best when your in the lobby. Overall as I said I believe you are just paying for location with this hotel it's a shame really as there is so much potential there to make it better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach!"
This is a nice hotel, and it is close to the beach. Staff were friendly, and the place was clean. The room keys are actually keys (rockin' it old skool) and the breakfast was not much more than toast and croissants. Overall, though, for the price and location, you can't beat it.Genuine Expedia guest review
I loved this Hotel. I was there for a 4 day vacation. Room 214 was a great size for me (single person), bathroom was a little small, small shower too (but fine for a slender person) and there wasn't a view out the windows, but a lot of light comes into the room when the curtains are open (when they are closed, it's completely dark and easy to sleep)! […] I spent most of the time at the beach, - not in the room. So it served it's purpose. I spent approx. $105.00 a night through an Expedia deal, the staff were very nice and room was always clean. One down fall is that their shuttle service to the airport departs only 3 times during the day (and they haven't updated the times on the website) - so best to call the Hotel and ask for the times directly. But, the cab to the airport is a flat $35.00, so it wasn't bad. As for the area, it was good as well, super close to the beach, and kitty corner to Zara, and the shops on Lincoln Lane - Starbucks and a bunch of restaurants across the road, also next door to Ford Models Agency. I would definitely stay here again for sure, unless of course I found something cheaper and better. :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is in an excellent location and that's about the only positive I can say. The reception area is clean, this is were the continental breakfast is. If you don't go early then you'll miss out, it is not replenished. It's adequate but there is not enough for the number of rooms in the hotel. Our bathroom was grimey, you could see the grime on […] the tiles, the windows and taps. The tap was wonkey, the shower not brilliant. A particularly nice touch was the hair left in the plug strainer contraption in the shower! The bathroom was also badly designed and cramped. Sheets appeared clean in room, floor needed a good clean as did any other surface in the room, they were all sticky. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
On arrival we had to wait half an hour for the valet parking attendant to turn up before we have up and found parking elsewhere. The staff seemed unconcerned about this. Then that night there was a huge cockroach in the room. The concierge was suitably apologetic, but couldn't offer us another room or any kind of compensation. She told us she would […] tell the manager in the morning and the manager would call us and we moved out to another hotel. The manager still hasn't called us a week later. My wife called the hotel and left messages. The manager still hasn't returned our calls. Avoid this hotel! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
