"Wonderful, attractive, location and facilities."
My sister and I stayed in the Crest while we were in Miami for a wedding. The hotel was wonderful for us--close to the wonderful restaurants and shopping on South Beach. The 24- hour staff was very helpful, friendly, and gave us reason to feel secure as travelers. The restaurant was good and convenient, just downstairs. Since we stayed 5 nights, we […] especially enjoyed the full kitchenette. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Worst hotel experience"
This had to be one of the worst hotel experiences I have ever had. We booked a superior double room, with two double beds at the Crest Hotel Suites as part of a package through Expedia. There were four girls on the reservation and we had requested a room that would indeed accommodate four people. When we arrived they provided us a superior single room […] as they phrased it which contained one double bed and a couch. There was no closet in the room. Upon entering the room we complained that there was only one bed, but unfortunately all they had left was a single room. We asked if we could have a cot or something but unfortunately they were all out of cots and again could not accommodate us. He assured us that the next morning there were a number of other guests leaving the hotel and that they would indeed be able to move us into a double room. We called down to the desk in the morning and we were told again there were no double rooms available. Finally the front desk called the manager, and relayed the message that the manager said they could not accommodate us so they cancelled the rest of our reservation and we had to be out by noon. Talk about customer service, and apparently we are the idiots for ignoring the fact that this happened to others and was in other reviews. Don't stay here! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location of this hotel is great. Close to the beach and public transportation if needed. Restaurants are in abundance. The hotel room was clean and inviting. I was also impressed with the bathroom. The hotel staff are friendly and very helpful, they made my stay very pleasant. My only two complaints are that, one, the food in the small cafe is VERY […] pricey and the bottles of water provided should be complimentary. In general my stay at Crest Suites was a pleasant one.

"Location, location, location!"
Excellent location!! Fun boutique hotel. No frills. No need to. Everything located so close.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel with a realy good location"
The location is great, 5 minutes away from beach and Lincoln road and still is quiet and you can enjoy your stay. Hygiene in the hotel is in high level. All the employee are always pleased to help you. I had a really good experience and that is why I warmly recommend this hotel. The price is also really good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location and price"
Loved the vintage look that this city has preserved in gems like this one. The desk help directed me to the local bus for 25¢ and held my bags for me until I could check in when I was early. The cafe served yummy food. I truly felt like I was on vacation. The room was perfect for a traveler who doesn't like spending their time hanging out in their hotel. […] Meaning, a bed bathroom and place to put your clothes will suffice. Will definitely recommend and or stay again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
""Great Quality for a Reasonable Price""
By this being my first time to Miami I was very pleased. The Crest hotel was clean and cozy, which is a key factor for me when out of town. Most of all the price for this hotel was very reasonable for my four day stay. The location is awesome. Your literally in walking distance of the Lincoln shopping strip, restaurants, popular night clubs and the […] beach. I will definitely recommend this hotel to others who wish to visit Miami and will book this hotel again when I return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Relaxing and nice for a short stay! Close to the beach and restaurants!Genuine Expedia guest review
The most important thing about Crest Hotel is that it is clean. It had the smallest bathroom and the very smallest shower I have ever seen--I barely fit, and I am not a large person, and forget about shelves or racks in the shower. The water in the sink came out very close to the back of the basin, so it was a little hard to use. I was a little nervous, […] too, about having only a physical key rather than an electronic one and no safe in room, but I didn't have a problem. It also had the oldest iron I'd ever seen in a hotel, without a spigot to add water for steam cleaning. But cleanliness and affordability were most important to me, and they were provided. The location was also phenomenal, a short walk from the beach and right by the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
For a hotelroom in this prizeclass everything was really perfekt. The bathroom is terribly small, but I was alone. I missed someboby to help me with my luggage, but for that I would have had to change in another categorie of hotel. (Evenso somebody did help me!) No possibility to get a town map or to get a look into one from the hotel. So you should […] have one when you arrive. But you find a good bed with superb, soft and comfortable linnen, many good towels and the little breakfast in the small room was perfekt, the hot chocolate great and the stuff very friendly. The interior decoration is modern, simpel but very well done. Next time I would choose again a suite in the 2nd or third floor. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
close to beach and restaurants on Lincoln and Collins. Local shuttle bus is only 25 cents. Staff friendly made good restaurant suggestionsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointed traveller from South Africa"
The only good thing about this hotel was its location. I was disappointed with the front desk service, the lady was never freindly. The rooms had a bad smell and the drainage and sewerage needs upgrading. There were numerous complains from other guests over the period of my stay. The self catering rooms are along a alley where all the dumpsters are […] kept. Parking at $30 per day is something that you can factor in when considering other hotels in the area if it is free.

"South Beach Bachelor Party"
I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. Over-night parking was pricey ($30). Front desk staff was very helpful (I believe his name was Rodrigo). He kept me abreast of a package I was expecting and had it waiting for me when I checked into the hotel. He also upgraded me to a king suite which was very nice. Pool was refreshing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in South Beach!"
We had a wonderful time at this hotel. Our room was nicely decorated and very clean and spacious, and it was within walking distance of stores, bars, beaches, restaurants! The staff was super friendly and helpful and I highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just as expected"
This hotel is good if you just want a quick stay in SB without any upgrades of an expensive hotel. The rooms and hotel are very clean. I was there from a Thursday to Monday and the hotel restaurant was open on Monday morning. The pool area is very small with not really any space to lounge. Around the corner from Lincoln Road so great for quick acce […] ss. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

we had a great stay at the crest. very clean and great staff. all i can say is great great stay thanks crestGenuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance to all that SoBe offers!"
Set a block away from the hustle and bustle of Ocen drive which is a plus. Great rooms, close to beach and a block away from the Ritz and Lowes. Nice little pool to relax at if you feel the need for some quiet time. Great stay! Booking it in 2013 for next years Wine and Food Fest!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value and nice"
This hotel provided great value for the cost. I was attending a meeting at a bigger hotel a few blocks away and chose this one to save money. It was quiet, had free internet, and the room set-up had a nice desk for work when I needed to work. Everything was clean and the staff were uniformly nice. It's not the fanciest place, I've ever stayed, but I […] would certainly return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
No bells and whistles but a decent place to sleep and take a shower after a long day. Nice location, close to everything. We stayed at this hotel for 1 night and were happy with it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but no frills."
Room was clean. Nice pool. No frills but a nice clean room. Breakfast was ok but for the price they should at least include a free continental breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Horrible Walls"
The hotel is a coupe of blocks from Lincoln Road and the beach. The walls are super thin so you will hear everything going on around you. There is a bus stop that is a block away where you can catch a bus for $2.00 to get to downtown. Another bus stop 2 blocks can get you to the airport for $2.35 and take about 35 minutes. When I checked in the clerk […] told me there were no buses to either place and that I needed to take taxis. Luckily the next day, there was a much better front desk person working that told me about these bus stops. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, great price"
This hotel is great if you want to be close to the beach without spending your whole vacation budget on a hotel. It's a 2-block walk to the beach, where you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas from any of the fancy hotels. Also a 2-block walk to Lincoln Ave, which is full of restaurants, bars, and shops. Great location. Only knock i had is that we […] were in a room on the south side of the hotel, which was right next to an alley way, where there seemed to be 10 minutes of garbage collecting at around 7 am every other day. It was very noisy and if possible, see if you can get a room on the north side of the hotel. Also the pool is nothing fancy - it's right on the street and is pretty small. But you're a two block walk to the beach so it shouldn't be a deal breaker. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"WORST night ever - spend your money elsewhere"
Oh where do I begin on how awful Crest Suites were? First off, the girl who check us in had a massive attitude, and the valet took forever (whereas across the street there's a public parking lot that is just as safe, and will cost the same amount, and you won't have to waste your day waiting for the impossibly slow valet at Crest). Then, after I waited […] for 1/2 hour to have my car parked - which I didn't want to leave because it was double parked on a very busy road - I went to my room. They gave us a room with one bed, although I had paid for a room with two double beds. Once again, I had to wait and see if they had the room which we had paid for. After a few minutes, I was moved up a floor to a room that was easily 90*. Fair enough, it's Miami and they weren't expecting us, but man does that suck to get out of a long car ride to a sweltering hot room. It's a bit far from the South Beach action - about 15 blocks. But it is in the heart of a lot of shopping, etc. That being said, it is incredibly noisy. Now, as far as the actual room - the beds are covered in plastic or something? They squeak every time people move (which is not fun for a room of ladies). And, they're pretty uncomfortable to boot. Also, in our room the maid had only put one roll of 1/2 empty toilet paper in it... needless to say, I discovered this at 4 AM and had a lovely visit with the front desk, again. Oh, and the shower was dangerous - my friend accidentally cut herself on the drain because it was in disrepair. Let me add, the elevator certificate was 7 months expired to get us up to our room. When we checked out, the rude girl at the beginning had told me that retrieving my car from valet in the morning would take about 5-10 minutes. I'm glad I decided to go early because the next rude man who checked us out told me, "Always 15 minutes." It was 15 minutes, and yet another stressful moment. Again, another rude person at the desk. Left a really great impression of me. Overall, I would say i Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Room was infested with Ants"
As the title says the room was infested with ants and the hotel was full and they would not give me another room. Not fun to wake up with ants crawling on your bed and body.... You decide if you want to stay here, many positives, but ants and probably bedbugs too is not a good thing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This is a very clean and well located hotel."

"Crest hotel: A good bargain. Would stay again."
The hotel was conveniently situated in South Beach (SoBe). The room was spacious with a king bed that was comfortable. The beding was nice. The flat screen TV was awesome. Minuses: The door was keyed instead of the standard hotel swipe card. No inroom safe for valuables. We had a few ants in the bathroom. Our towel setup was somewhat lacking. We often […] had to ask at the front desk for washclothes and handtowels. It was difficult to control the room temp with the wall air conditioning unit. It was often to cold even on the lowest setting. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Crest Hotel off the beaten path"
We enjoyed our 6 day stay at the Crest Hotel. The room has everything you'll need for a week at the beach; AC, two double beds, clean sheets, a flat screen TV and a shower/bath. The room was clean and the maid came every day. We went to the grocery once we got there, bought a small cooler and enough food for breakfasts and lunches. The staff was polite, […] and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting South Beach. The only complaints we had about South Beach are that the bars charge WAY too much for drinks and it seemed as though the locals are all too eager to scam the tourists. I would recommend that you don't let people know that you're just visiting. That said, I can completely understand their point of view as well. Tourists must be a real pain for them. Many people go to South Beach and act like idiots, so the locals are on the defensive. Let this be a lesson to us all. 'Visitors, treat the people and the city with nothing but respect,' and Locals, 'don't bite the hand that feeds you.' Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"can not beat the price for this location"
Although not a swank place the location was fantastic....Near Lincoln Road, the convention center and a block or two from the beach. Clean and comfy and at least at my stay was quiet. The front desk guys were helpful as well. I would stay there again when in town.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Little Hotel"
After reading reviews for this hotel, there were no surprises. The rooms, as pictured, are definitely small, but have a tasteful spare, clean decor. The employees we encountered were all polite and helpful. The hotel is very conveniently located - close to the convention center, the beach, and Lincoln Road shops and dining.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good, but not great"
The hotel is in an excelent neighbourhood. Two blocks from Lincoln Road and a couple more from ocean drive. The Room was good and clean, bathroom OK. The breakfast is in a small room, not enough space for everyone, and is charged appart. They DO NOT have a parking lot, if you plan to go by car, they will charge you 30 USD per day, or you can park just […] across the street (we paid 25 USD per day). Another thing that bother me: they do not have a system capable to find out your reservation only with your name, you have to bring with you the confirmation page. I've made 2 different reservations, the first one did well, the second one they simply couldn't find, even with the entire confirmation page of the HOTELS.COM. Other than that, it was worth it.

An older Art Deco property. Friendly staff although housekeeping was inconsistent. Upgraded when we chhecked into a very nice suite. Much better value than the Ritz which is only one block away...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a small boutique hotel with superb location. We were a group of 16 and we were all very glad we chose it. The rooms were normal in size and very clean. Walking distance to Lincoln Road with all its Restaurants and stores. One block from the beach (4 minutes walking). We even had a party on the pool, which was shutdown after other guests complain. […] The staff provided great service. The only negative is the size of the elevator, 4 squeeze. You can do late check out (5 p.m.) for $50 extra. That was a plus since we were leaving in the afternoon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice stay in a clean comfortable hotel. Good location and service"
I spent 12 nights in this hotel. On arrival, I got a standard room but the A/C did not work. When I complained, I was given a larger studio-like room with kitchenette and living and bedroom. Reception staff was very helpful and courteous, and pool was convenient alternative to nearby beach. I would certainly go back to this hotel, if a special rate […] price is offered again.

"Crest Hotel - Great location, nice room."
Quiet but safe street only 1 traffic light from the beach. Also very close to souvenir stores, Walgreens, CVS, and lots of restaurants & shops. The express bus from the airport stops 1 block away. The room was simple but clean. The AC worked fine, though it was a bit noisy. The free wireless internet crashed a couple of times, but overall worked well. […] If you want to spend a minimum of about 50% more than the Crest, you can get a nicer hotel in that neighborhood with more amenities or closer to the beach, but I'd rate this as a "best buy".

The good: - reasonable price - excellent location - clean - fairly comfortable (the air conditioner seemed to only have one setting, so although I appreciated not melting in the record heat while I was there, I did sleep under a blanket) - reasonable internet (free wireless, somewhat slow, but acceptable) The bad: - the staff, although friendly, was […] clearly only up to performing the absolute minimum requirements of their job. - they messed up my reservation and had to move me to another room after two days - my second room lacked a desk - I was there on work, and spent many hours in front of my computer Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
