"Close to South Beach"
I've stayed at this hotel before, so I knew what to expect. It's not a luxury hotel, however staff are very pleasant and attentive. The hotel has been updated in the last few years, however the work was sloppy (window sill not secured to the ledge as an example). Nevertheless, the hotel is bug free, quiet and convenient walking distance to all the hot […] spots. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in great location"
The rooms were renovated and spacious. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. And the location is perfect, close to the beach and nightlife.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't forget your clock, tv and radio"
This is a well worn hotel needing much upgrading. My room had a tv that only rarely had english speaking programs, no radio, no tv guide, no clock, no alarm, no way of turning off the a/c, no bedside light, had to turn light off at the door then feel your way to the bed. No coffee making facilities and charged me $25 a day to park my car. The bed was […] clean and towels changed daily. Room was quiet. Carpet need replacing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"South Beach on a Budget"
The staff was nice. The room was pretty basic. TV only had a few local channels, no cable. Beds weren't luxurious or anything but they were acceptable. The bathroom looked newly remodeled and was very nice. Understand that this is an old building and the bathrooms are going to be small. And there was only a shower, no tub.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel to stay in."
Staff was nice. Room was clean. Close to stores and beachGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at the San Juan after our cruise to enjoy our vacation a little longer and had a wonderful time. The staff was curteous and helpful. Our room was clean and quiet. The only improvement would be to have coffee in the room or at least in the lobby. We will definately stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel with reasonable price for south beach."
Everything was clean, nice, friendly and helpful staff. The AC in the room could've been a bit colder but other than that we had a comfortable stay and the location is great. Close to all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to all must-see sights"
It was great but the ac was too low, freezing temperature. I couldn't find the controls in the room. I could call for assistance but fall asleep... other than that it was okGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms are pretty shabby. No TV reception. Kitchenette and closet were one in the same, at least in my room anyway. Best part was the bathroom...very up-to-date. Unfortunately on the last night, friends staying in an adjacent room found a bed bug on the bed sheet. Luckily our group had two other rooms for them to crash (hotel was booked, according to […] front desk). At check out, after seeing evidence of bed bug, manager comped friends for the last night.

"A fair deal for the money..."
Not the most fancy of the hotels but given the low price and great location I must say it is well worth it. Dress up and cross the street to Delano and you will forget the no bar and rent by the hour impression from San Juan...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly and it's in the best location. The beach was literally a two min walk and all the hottest night clubs was around the corner.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Construction at 6 a.m. and central a/c!"
My stay was terrible, the hotel RIGHT OUTSIDE our window was being remodeled and construction started right at 6 a.m. The noise never stopped. San Juan may have not been able to help that, but central air in a hotel!? i have never heard of such thing. Most hotels have their own a/c unit in each room, thins is not the case at San Juan. A hot hotel room […] on Miami Beach is the last place you want to be after spending the day in the hot sun. I give San Juan 2 BIG THUMBS DOWN! BOOOOOO! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location and had a pool"
Not so expensive especially for that location which is great!! And swimming pool is quite niceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent value in South Beach"
For this budget hotel we weren't expecting a lot, but were actually pleasantly surprised. It was clean and comfortable, we felt quite safe and the price was very good for the location. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach, 7 minutes to Ocean Drive and 2 minutes to Lincoln Ave Mall. It had good amenities, including a fridge, microwave and air-condition. […] The room itself looked a little aged, but the bathroom was renovated and nice. And as a bonus, there was more than just soap (deodorant, toothpaste, etc.) In addition to our prepaid reservation, we were asked for a 30 USD collateral for incidentals, but this was returned afterwards.

"Clean Hotel in a great location at a good price"
Very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I love having a refrig and microwave in the room. It would be nice to have a coffee maker. The pool area is small, but nice. The hotels location is excellent, near the beach and around the corner from Lincoln Rd. dining.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Party Party Party"
I come to Miami annually and have stayed at many hotels on South Beach and this was one of my favorites. The staff was great. Everyone in the hotel was helpful and very polite. the bathroom was very clean and beds were clean. The location of the hotel was great for dining, beach and night life. I never come to Miami to stay in the room so if that's […] your plan this is the wrong place for you. This hotel is small quiet and nice place for single males and females. I had a great time at the San Juan.This place made my vacation painless. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the club and beach goer"
I have stayed in the hotel once before, a year ago. Perfect location if you are going to South Beach for the clubs and beach experience. Hotel is old and in decent shape over all. Perfect cheap hotel if your not planning on spending your vacation trapped in a hotel room. Hotel rooms have recent renovations. Bathrooms, carpets, doors, and paint.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel, Staff, Price, Location,& Overal Value"
DETAILED REVIEW HERE!!!! Great Hotel, Staff, Price, Location, and Overall Value! I'm 22 and I stayed there from Thursday-Mon. The staff was super helpful and everyone was so nice, they let me check in early, let me put my bags in storage while I waited for my shuttle bus and even had beach towels for Fun in The Sun. My room was on the 3rd floor, Queen […] super spacious room w/all the perks. Full size mirror, fridge, microwave, etc. My friends were jealous they paid more. for less:-# T.V. had enough channels and the bathroom was beautiful. I really didn't notice the renovations next door unless I walked outside. Great location and view.The only bad thing is that the elevator was down for a couple hours ( but c'mon it only has three floors.lol), there was a plastered spot on the wall beside the microwave & the trim at the window seal could use a little tending too. However, considering the price...AWESOME! Besides who has time to sleep when you're in Miami? Haha Unless you're super picky, uppity I don't see why this hotel wouldn't be great for you. Thanks San Juan & Expedia!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"This is actually a descent hotel"
For the last 5 years, I have visited Miami at least once a year. In the past 10 years, I have stayed at San Juan Hotel at least 5 times. Each time, it's gotten better. I stayed there for Labor Day weekend (Sep 2012) at a pretty reasonable rate. I usually don't ask a lot in 2.5 star hotels, but during this particular weekend, they exceeded my expectation. […] The double room was clean and had 4 large towels plus wash cloths. The bathroom was bright and nicely updated. Maid service was consistent. I didn't smell the standard mildew that tends to plague most hotels on South Beach. They even had someone at the entrance to open the door to welcome you to the hotel. I am not sure if that’s a regular thing though, so don’t expect that if you decide to stay there. The staff (day and night) was extremely courteous and helpful. The room had a safe, small refrigerator, microwave and iron with ironing board. The centrally controlled air conditioner worked perfectly. I’m glad that they had blankets though, because I really needed it one night. You can't beat the location. Not in the middle of the mayhem but close enough to everything you need: 1 block to Lincoln Mall; 1 block to the beach; a few blocks to the center on nightlife on Ocean drive; 2 blocks from CVS/Walgreen; across the street from the bus stop for the Express Airport Flyer. I would definitely stay there again if there's a good rate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't Stay Here!!!"
Do not stay here!! This hotel is run down, the rooms are out dated, and the service is the worst. The bathroom had a disgusting moldy plastic shower curtain and a shower chair that looks like it has been there for years. The bedspread looked like it has never been washed, there were several strands of human hair on it (completely gross). The iron didn't […] work at all. There were holes and stains on the walls. Overall it was a horrible experience staying at this hotel. Never again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Convenient! Reasonable price!"
literally within walking distance to everything! Block from the beach, shops and eateries. Very spacious, updated bathroom; marbe floors and shower. No view but in miami you will not be in the room anyway! Good stay if you are looking to save money..nice comfortable beds.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel need to be rehab because it look old and ran down but the service was greatGenuine Expedia guest review
Deffinetaly payed for what i got! Bathroom was very clean, got hotel service fast, the sheets were very clean and when we needed towels or service we got sone asap. Id return for sure. The only negative thing i have to say is tge 2 nights i stayed it got really hot in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall it was a good stay. I didn't spend much time in the room besides to sleep and shower. The area is nice alot of places to eat, shop and drink.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Straighforward accomodation at a good price."
It had been a year since my last visit, and nothing much has changed. The location could not be better, because the Ritz Carlton is already in that spot, just across the street. This hotel works well as a base of operations for people who do not have high expectations for physical finishes, creature comforts, or bill fattening services. Those who are […] dead set on chic appeal and/or absolute quiet will be more comforable elsewhere. My room was clean and my bed was very comfortable. My low definition flat screen TV served up HBO and a satndard cable channels, many in Spanish. All of the light bulbs worked, but the safe battery was dead. My bath was not newly refurbished, but it was big, though shaving at the sink was not really possible. The shower water did get hot -- after a while. The carpet did not encourage close inspection. The freezer was great. The fridge... not so much. But the pool was clean and well used by the guests. Free WiFi without problems. The A/C plant was as powerful, but there is no thermostat/ AC control in the room. All of the staff was friendly to me, and my room got cleaned every day. So it's a clean and lively (if somewhat unlovely) little hotel in a great location. Families, couples, and students seemed to get on fine together. (Perhaps because they weren't there very much.) N.B.: I was there on the weekend and things were (relatively) quiet. When I left on Monday I noted a LOT of construction noise on the North side of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was a quick get away vacation for me and a girlfriend who are both on a budget. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. I love that it is in the middle of everything and 1 block from the beach. You can't beat it for the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for the money"
Room needs remodeling. Beds are old & need replacing. Bathroom was very nice. It had been remodeled.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for"
Small room. Room faced construction site, had to keep window/curtains drawn. Small tv, with direct tv, goes out first sign of rain. No a/c, but vent kept room fairly cool. Only had two small pillows, had a hard time getting any more. Pricing was best part, but you get what you pay for. Good if you want a cheap place to stay and don't plan on spending […] a lot of time in the room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic stay at the San Juan hotel"
Perfect stay for 10 days....comfy beds, fab new bathrooms, big flat screen TV, free ice, good swimming pool and excellent location! close to everything!

"Worst hotel in south beach"
Overall it was the worst experience ever. The management was horrible My guests and I were up till 6 in the morning due to people in the room above us arguing and fighting and yelling throwing things. We went to management three times to have something about it and they said it was handled and it still continued. Cops were called and showed up at around […] 6:30 after the noise went away. The wall outlets did not work to charge our cellphones. There was a toenail lodged into the carpet. The price wasn't too bad though for the area but I will never return to that hotel ever again and waste my money on it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Definitely YES for this hotel! It is so cheep and so close to everywhere (to the beach, to the shops, restaurants, bars, clubs). Rooms are clean (cleaning every day), staff is very friendly. We had new bathroom. Only one thing was uncomfortable - bad. For one person was good but for two? Kind of noisy and soft..but it is small detail. We enjoy stay […] in this hotel a lot and I would come again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A nice hotel in the heart of Miami Beach."
I had doubts before going due to some comments I read. But honestly after being there I have to say that I am more than satisfied with the hotel. I am the kind of travellers who are very little time at the hotel, but I was more than satisfied with the room and above all the bathroom, completely new and very clean. The air conditioning working 24 hours […] a day and for my taste a bit high. The location of the hotel is great, just meters from Lincoln and facilities to eat and shop very near. With mu husband we even went to the swimming pool, I just rest but my husband was swimming for a while. It was a nice please, very quiet and enjoyable. It´s to recommend. If you want to have a nice time and good price this is the place. It´s a nice place to stay and good price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"very nice surprise for a low price"
It was a very plesent surprise. Brand new bathrooms, doors, chairs. Non smoking, so doesnt stink. Looks and feels clean. Next to the constraction site but pretty quiet, very close to the beach, to the nice restaurants on ocean drive, starbucks, wallgreans, liquor store, beach wear, rainbow chain store are all 1 block away. All tour operators are right […] around the corner. Close to SET club, a few blocks away from Ganservoot and Mokai hot spots, $10 ride away from all the hottest clubs in Miami. Would highly reccomend. Cons: central AC, can not regulate temp in you room, maids would not even change the towels without tip, so if u run out of cash expect to see your room untouched by the maid service...No coffe makers in the room, old little TVs. Pros: fridge, microwave in the room, iron, blow dryer(good one), awesome front desk, pool. Will stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Old San Juan"
This hotel needs some help. The carpet in the hallways is old and dark. The drapes and decore in the rooms is old and dark. The room was small and overlooked the pool and a parking lot beyond that. However, if you want to be near South Beach this may be for you! There are less expensive hotels in Miami but not on/near South Beach. If you want South […] Beach action, well, here it is.

"Great location, minimal hotel"
I was sad when I first saw my room, but I got used to it. You may want to bring your own reading light, for instance, as there are only ceiling lights. And the main room only has two electric outlets (i.e. one plate, two plugs), so maybe bring a multi-plug extension cord too. But the location is great, the staff is reasonable, and the place is fairly […] clean. Plus, the bathrooms seem to have been all redone and are nice, though small. I also liked the guys hanging on the front porch drinking beer and the fact that the San in the neon sign is out. I call it the Juan now and ended up rather fond of the place.

"The San Juan Hotel, Collins Ave., Miami Beach, FL"
Unfortunately, the online pictures/description of the San Juan didnt live up to the actual experience of living there. The photographer who took the photos that were online must have been a magician. The hotel itself has to be at least 50 - 60 years old and shows every day of it. Again, unfortunately, the owners dont seem to have any pride of ownership. […] There is no off street parking offered. Therefore you are forced to either park in a local parking garage to the tune of $16 a day or a parking lot behind the hotel for $30 a day. The hotel itself is a relic of the "art deco" era, with no updating or renovations whatsoever. The carpeting in the hallways looked like it was the original carpet when the hotel was built. Cleanliness was minimal. In the room itself, there was no temperature control, so cold air continued to blow out through the one vent until I closed it. On the plus side the bathroom fixturing was updated, Euro-style, within the tiny bathroom. As with most stays in Miami, one would be advised to brush up on your Spanish. Definitely would not stay at this place again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
