"Misled by the photo."
The hotel has been undergoing renovations for quite some time and still in need of more TLC. The room was sparsely furnished. The walls in the room had stains on them as if furniture was dragged along it or shoes thrown against it. The bathroom was modern but small. The registration desk needs upgrading as well as it is quite apparent that this place […] hasn't been updated from furniture, carpetry, lack of uniformity in the staff clothing. if my wife had been with me i definitely would have not stayed at this hotel.

My stay at the hotel began shortly after 11am , I had asked if they could hold our luggage. The front desk clerk, initially told me that he didn't have room, but he did find room to take our luggage. The software program that they are using, looks to be about 20 years old, and it did take me 15 minutes to check in. Upon our arrival at the room, not […] much there except for two beds, TV and a small table and chair.The only thing that I would say has been overhauled is the bathrooms. Although small, they have had some work done to them. (didn't have any issue with the bathrooms There was a large screen tv, but, only about 15-20 channels . There is a pool, but the handle to get in appeared to have been broken, and it had not been cleaned for several days. Unfortunately, I can't give this hotel more than a 1.5 rating. Staff was ok, and I did receive a wake up call, and there was a taxi waiting for me to fly out of MIA. My stay was in room 215, and neither of the night lights worked.

"Great Location - No parking at hotel is a problem"
Nice hotel, near everything you need in Sobe: Beach, Lincoln Road, Espanhola Way. Services and cleanliness are OK, the big problem is the absence of a parking lot at the Hotel. Even the public parking, 2 blocks away, is a little expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"location, location, location!"
The hotel is old and worn out, but the perfect location and the the staff always very helpful and friendly make up for it. Bus 150 from the airport for a little over 2 dollars and 25 cents local bus makes a car useless and more a hazard then anything. Thanks Claudio and the other guys at the reception for all the tips on how to get places and everything […] else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was pleasant and helpful. The bathroom was really nice and was very different from the remainder of the facilities which are outmoded and just a bit dingy. Some of the clientele was less than desirable - noisy and inebriated. The hotel is conveniently located, only one block from the beach. There is a pool. For the price, it is more than adequate, […] but do not expect a luxurious experience. For tourists on a budget, I would recommend the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel close to everything I can think of"
nice hotel a block away from south beach, famous ocean drive, lincoln road mall, and much more. If you are on budget this is the perfect hotel close to everything including nightlife. I would recommend this hotel to those who want to visit Miami beach and doesnt spend much time in a hotel, which thats what we did, we only used it to sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Loud remodeling pounding noise every morning"
spooky place, false advertising, remodeling noise every morning drilling on the floor above us walls shaking, noise started early each day before 8:30 not able to rest or talk on phone until late day, the bathroom looked recently remodeled but every thing else looked worn and unclean, creepy employeesGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Perfect Place to Stay"
I loved the location and the staff was wonderful. It very rare to find such good customer service anywhere. I will definitely stay there again and will spread the word......A+Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you're on a budget the location can't be beat"
Great staff and location. If you're planning to stay in South Beach for the majority of the trip, don't even bring a car. Parking is expensive everywhere in the area but most things are within walking distance from the San Juan. Room was ok but bathroom had been updated and was nice. If I had the $ I'd stay in the Ritz Carlton but the San Juan fit my […] budget and needs quite well. Would return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Choose this hotel if you're not gonna sleep."
This hotel is old and shabby. The elevator seems to be fallen off soon and slow. The room is broad, not that much furniture and decoration is old-fashioned. I couldn't sleep well because of the noise, even though the window was closed(I don't know where that noise from) and the bed was really uncomfortable. The price is not reasonable with these things. […] However it's really close to the South beach(5mins by walking) and Lincoln road and other stores. (CVS, Pizza place, liquor shop) The staff is courteous and helpful. They allowed me early check in and ask me to grab a taxi when I went to the airport. There is a swimming pool and some laundry machines right next to the swimming pool. I didn't use either but I saw some people played in the pool. If you really don't have money enough to pay for the other 5 star hotel, you might stay at this hotel. You'd rather think to stay here, however, if you are with your family or boy friend/girl friend to have lots of fun in daytime and want to sleep in comfy and cozy environment, you had better choose other hotel.

The experience was good. The hotel was clean and the staff was very welcoming and nice. I didn't like that there was no thermostat in the bedroom but besides that, i enjoyed staying here. It is about 5 blocks from Ocean Drive, where everything (clubs and beach) is located.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok hotel nothing fancy but close to beach"
Only went to sleep but it did the job alittle small the rooms but not a bad weekend getaway hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
the hotel was subpar. hotel staff was kind and nice. older buildingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cancel My Reservation"
I did not stay because the room smelled and the bed were so old and made so much noise. The pictures online must have been from when they first bought the furniture. The bathroom is nicely renovated, but small. The whole room needs to be renovated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach but old hotel"
This hotel is close to beach but very old construction with some bed bugs as well. Staff is courteous but overall not a good choice to stay with family. You can hear voices from adjacent rooms and walking steps noise coming from the above floor. I will Jot recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
the hotel was in an excellent location. The room was only fair. The beds were uncomfortable. There was only an overhead light. No lamps on the nightstand Our room key would not work and had to keep taking it to the front desk to be programmed. It would take maybe 3 times or more trying to get in the room if it worked at all. The walkway around the pool […] was only room for 1 person and the pool was practically on top of the washing machines. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good position but noisy neighbor"
The hotel is near beaches and the Lincoln avenue, you can grab your favorite liquor from the next store. What was bothering us was a thin wall between rooms and we had a feeling that all residents were in our room. You can hear every thing from the next and the top room even a tip toeing. As result we could not rest at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"ok to stay"
It's ok for the price except the odd smell, and the sheet could be cleaner. Location is near the beach and shopping. They offered beach towel but no beach chairs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, for practical reasons"
It's a cheaper option in pricey Miami Beach area. The rooms are clean, and that's all we were looking to have. It's not a super nice hotel, but they've been open enough about it, by advertising it as the best cheaper option. It's centrally located between South Beach and Miami Beach, and it's close enough to everything you need to have fun in Miami. […] For the price I paid, I wouldn't complain about this hotel at all. I got what I expected. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is great! You are within walking distance of everything and if you don't want to walk most of the cab rides are $10 assuming your going to things within 2 miles. The rooms aren't bad and the bathrooms are redone. The staff is more then friendly!!! My boyfriend left his necklace and we didn't notice until we got to the airport on the day of […] our check out. I called the hotel after we got through security, the maid found the necklace and it was kept at the front desk. I sent a fed ex bag for the hotel to send it to me and I got the necklace the next day! I would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"3 nights at San Juan Hotel"
In general, San Juan Hotel is a good hotel with its price. The double bedroom of San Juan hotel is bigger than others. However, the beds are not comfortable. I would like to stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value for short stay and location"
We were in South Beach for a one-night stay mainly to visit the Lincoln Road Mall and Ocean Drive area. Both locations were within walking distance, no need to drive, so the hotel served its purpose for us, especially for the price and given it's South Beach. Unless you know where to park in the area, your best options include the hotel's 3rd party […] valet parking for a fee, or use the city parking which is still 2 blocks away. But then again, it is South Beach. The bathroom was fully renovated and very nice. You can also hear all the action in the hallway, so that was an inconvenience for one of us who is a light sleeper.

"not what I expected"
not what I expected, came back from beach with sand in my son's bathing suit and it felt on the floor, it was 3 pm and the room wasnt cleaned yet and the lady was arriving to clean so I expected it to be cleaned by her...went outside to let her clean but it was still there when we came back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was an okay stay. The hotel is conveniently located to the beach and surrounding attractions. The only negative is there was a roach in out room. We got it out but it shouldn't have been there in the first place.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Just a place to sleep"
Door was broken, house keeping lady had to open it. Halls have no light. No AC, AC controled by front desk. Bed smelled. I'm usually fare when rating but the place was bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"the hotel is very close to everything"
the hotel is very close to everything but the hotel need to be remodeled like the carpet need to be change or shampooed because is very dirty, the toilet got clogged like four times and we had to ask for the pump several times, the dining table was wobbling and one of the mattress was not comfortable in one of the side and you pretty much sank and you […] almost fall out of bed. There was no luggage rack and we had to put our luggage on the floor. The door to the bathroom is too close to the toilet, you cant open the door if someone was sitting in the toilet. There was no fan in the bathroom, so when we had to go to the bathroom, it stank for a long time.the refrigerator is not cool enought for the hotter weather. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Cheap but perfect"
Me and three of my friends came to stay here. Fantastic location, helpful and friendly staff, clean, food shower, fun atmosphere....although we had issues with our door not locking and needing a master key, staff were more than apologetic and very swift to help. Not the most attractive building or decor but if you're looking for location and price then […] it's spot on. Who really visits Miami and spends all their time in their hotel anyway? I would definitely visit again and recommend to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Not a really nice Hotel, it smelled, you did not even get an standard alarm clock in the room, requested one and they sent a broken one, one side of my bed was a 2 inches from the floor, can not control the AC yourself..Housekeeping was terrible, Left the room for Breakfast at 9:00 am and did some shopping arrive back to the room around 3:00 and it […] had not been touch, I did let front desk know, they sent someone to clean, The rest of the staff was very helpful and nice.The pool did not look all that great, I did not get in it, there is ONLY 1 ice machine. ..THE ONLY GOOD THING ABOUT THIS HOTEL IS IT IS CLOSE TO EVERYTHING The beach CVS, Ocean Drive..Next time I would stay somewhere else.

Great location, cheap price but worth what you pay, next to the beach all shopping stores, restaurants rental places and more, pool is good size and clean not your 5 star hotel but defiantly worth the price and lets be serious we just sleep at the hotel!Genuine Expedia guest review
"won't go again!"
Bed frame kept falling, lock on room door wouldn't lock, pool was dirty and you cant control the air conditioner yourself. Over all disappointedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and value for money!"
The rooms are simple, baths are renovated and rather big by budget hotel standards. Staff was very nice. Location is perfect: one block from the beach and two blocks from Lincoln Drive with many restaurants and shops. Great option is you don't mind budget hotels. Certainly, my favorite budget hotel thus far in South Beach and I will return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, so-so hotel"
On the plus side, the hotel is at a great location. It is a block from the beach, on Collins St., across the street from Ritz Carlton. The price was pretty good, considering a lot of the hotels around the area cost a few hundred dollars a night. On the negative side, the hotel itself was so so. The bathroom was newly done and was great. There was no […] thermostat in the room, and even though we closed the vent, it was still a little chilly. The hotel lobby had an odor which bothered me. Our room faced the adjacent hotel, so we had to keep the curtains closed all the time. Overall, I guess it wasn't too bad since we didn't want to spend $300 for Ritz. If you're looking for a low price hotel to sleep in and don't plan on spending too much time at the hotel, I would recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Hotel so Old."
The Hotel is very old and not pretty, the bathroom is ok, clean and refurnished, but not the bedroom, that is old. The location is the best, it is close to Lincoln rd and close to the beach, we can enjoy South Beach and use the Hotel just for sleep. You can find a lot of entertainment outside. If you need a great location hotel in the middle of South […] Beach and you dont wanto to spend to much money just for sleeping, this is the right place! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK hotel , close to everything ."
Budget hotel , close to Miami Beach , South Beach , Lincoln Rd , and Espanola Way . Hotel nothing fancy but staff was very accomodating . Bathroom remodeled , but ceiling was unfinished drywall .Pool was not very nice and rarely used by any guests in the 5 days we spent there .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Get what you pay for"
This hotel is in major need of updates as it is very run down. Other than the bathroom (which was pretty decent), the bed, walls, carpets, windows, etc. are in need of serious TLC. The walls are quite thin, allowing you to hear everything in the next room. The pool and pool area are small and dirty-didn't spend any time at the pool. The staff were friendly […] enough and check in/check out was quick and efficient. Excellent location-it is less than 5 minutes to walk to the beach, convenience stores, bars and restaurants. Needless to say, we didn't stay (or want to stay) in the room for long. If you don't have a lot of money to spend and don't plan to be in the room a lot, this place is tolerable. If you can stay somewhere else for more money, I would suggest you do so! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
