Miami Beach location was nice. no parking and I got a ticket after paying. I had no towels and waited at the desk the next morning for 2 hours and was told they had no towels. This place was very busy and appeared to be making money. Couldn't you buy some decent towels. The floor in the room was tile and slimy did not walk round barefooted. I was total […] disappointed.

"On the Beach"
When I arrived the hotel desk clerk immediately gave me the room key and swiped my card for any future charges (safe or calls). When I got to my room the ocean was giving the room an odor, ...OK. Then I tried the phone, and there was no dial tone. I tried the TV remote, it wouldn't turn the TV on or off or adjust the volume. I walked back to the desk […] clerk next door at the Ocean Surf. They suggested I try another room, or they could fix the remote problem ASAP. I also did not know how to adjust the air conditioner which was set to 61 degrees. The maintenance man adjusted it. Since we have cell phones I didn't care about the phone which was supposed to be out for the week. The room was quiet and adequate, right on the ocean. The breakfast there was toast and coffee, muffins, and fresh apple or orange, cereal and milk and orange juice. The breakfast lady was not always on time and tended to put art of the food out later in the morning. The room was cleaned each day with fresh towels. I think for the location the hotel was OK. It is not 4 or 5 stars, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap, Fantastic Location, Terrible Room"
Best location I could imagine (outside of South Beach)--right on beach, running trail, within a block of stores and restaurants. The lobby was in the hotel next door. You go there for everything, even the water fountain. Internet was in that lobby. Staff was very courteous. Breakfast was typical: oranges, apples (if you're up early), mini-muffins, cereal, […] toast, OJ, coffee, and tea. Parking was $10/day and very close. Room was dreadful. It was freezing, moldy, no towels, loud a/c (literally sounded like a jackhammer at times), had terrible smell (we had to buy candles and air freshener), no deadbolt, hallway smelled like pot, our main light broke the first day and no one would fix it for us (we were there for days), refrigerator barely worked (and stunk). The area seemed creepy at first, but turned out to be fine. My recommendations: *bring your own towels*, soap, air freshener, ear plugs, drinking water, non-refrigerated and non-microwaveable snacks, warm clothes and own blanket to sleep in, keep TV on so it sounds like someone is there when you go out (we heard there have been break-ins), and try to get into hotel next door (Ocean Surf--just like $10 more/night, much nicer). Other hotel guests were mostly families and young couples; a nice crowd. If you want to go somewhere cheap with an amazing location and are willing to put up with a terrible room, then you might consider it. :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for young couples, students and travellers"
I read some horrible reviews of this hotel, and have to say that I was more than pleasantly suprised when I arrived. The staff were very friendly, explained all the hotel rules, and breakfast time, and check in and check out times. They allowed us to use the luggage room to store our luggages for free while we waited until we could check in. When we […] checked in the room was clean and tidy, basic facilities but that was all we were looking for. The hotel is literally on the beach and close to restaurants bars and shops. It is also a short 20 minute bus ride away from south beach which was very convenient. The breakfast was basic; toast, cereal, milk, orange juice and coffee, but perfectly acceptable for a continental breakfast. For the price you pay, the staff, the food, the location and amenities are more than adequate. We had a problem with our room key at the start, but this was sorted out straight away for us. I feel that all the negative complaints and reviews left are by people who expected luxury for a basic price. Our experience was completely pleasurable and if you are just looking for cheap, clean and centrally located accommodation for a beach holiday the hotel is perfect for you.

"Pretty terrible experience."
Only one good thing about this hotel is that it's close to the beach. All another things are just simply horrible.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach"
If your goal is to be close to the beach for an affordable price this hotel is acceptable. However, if you are coming for a romantic getaway or have children stay away ! Good for college parties I guess .Genuine Expedia guest review
Old Hotel, bad condition, shower clogs up. The only great thing is the location to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good budget location"
In the land of 200 and 300 dollar rooms it was ok for what it was. Not a vacation spot unless you are on a budget. Location was good, right next to the beach and enough stores close by. I only slept there, if i had my girlfriend with me i would have had to select a more expensive place. No complaints here. It would seem they could put a little more […] money back into the room though. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ehhh.... good location..."
Could be better. Best thing about hotel was the location.. right across from the beach. Just little things that added up diminished the enjoyment of the experience. It was nice that we got an early check in, but why no towels? Had to ask a couple times for that. The condensation from the A/C dripped on the headboard and right on your head when you're […] trying to sleep. The hair dryer pulled right out of the wall and the shower is set up where you can't help but get water on the floor. This is in the room we had to move to since our original room would not lock from the outside. To the hotel's credit they did fix it that lock while we were there. I know it's an old building but some paint and rehab work could go a long way. Staff was polite for the most part.. but overall, I wouldn't recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst hotel I have ever seen"
Service ,cleanliness was worst..would not think of staying againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
UGH. The first sign that this was going to be a bad experience was when we pulled up to the hotel and the sign looked like it was printed at Kinkos. The actual hotel didn't have a lobby. The lobby was a building next door. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready so they locked our luggage in a "secure" closet and gave us ONE bath towel for the beach. […] The maid was a sweet lady. I wish she'd get employed elsewhere. The worst staff member was the guy who called us a cab home, which didn't show up. He sat behind the counter searching for gold in his nose and had no problem letting very sketchy people hang out in the lobby. Do not stay here. Spend the extra money and stay closer to South Beach. It will be worth it. The bus ride to get anywhere interesting, was reminiscent of a scene from "Speed". Holy S---. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved the location but the hotel was very dirty. black mold in the showers. I rejected three rooms before finding one that would work which I had to clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was not very clean and had a musty odor. There was a huge cockroach on the floor. The breakfast was very disappointing with bad coffee and Little Debbie Snack cakes. This could be a charming hotel if it was cleaner and decorated better. It was defineitely not worth the rate that was charged.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Scary Enough not to stay!!!!!"
We arrived to the hotel and honestly we DIDN'T even stayed. The building looks like an old abandoned house without even a sing outside, it is very hard to believe it is an "hotel". The door has a computer printed sing that says something like "please go check in to the building next door".. when you enter the other building (that by the way it is […] supposed to be also an hotel) the smell hits your right at the entrance. Really bad sweet and I don't know what else smell. We asked for our room and the direct answer was "check in is at 3pm"... don't dream about a "do you want to leave your luggage while you wait" because if you arrive in a early plane and of course you had no information you have no other choice that to wait in the hall. So we waited till 3pm and we were already suspicious about the place. So I asked for the room key to check it out before checking in. Thank the lord we did that! We entered the room, where the smell was even worst, the room wasn't ready! They actually showed us a room where the beds where used, nothing was cleaned from the guests that stayed there before. So of course, we want back to the front desk left the key and run off. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"RUSTED AND BUSTED"
Buildings exterior did not resembled the website at all. The reception/check in desk was in the building nextdoor and it was ran by very incompetent workers. Our maid walked in on us even though we had a "do not disturb" sign up. Contrary to what the website says we had to wait a long time for our room to be ready, and when we entered the room it was […] like it was never cleaned. The room had a terrible smell, extreme humidity, broken tv, broken remote, dirty sheets, rusted and busted fridge, dirty shower that floated!! just an overall nightmare. DO NOT BOOK YOUR STAY IN THIS HOTEL! the price was way too high for what we got in return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"1 out of 5 stars o_O"
If you plan on spending most of your time away from the room this hotel might work for you. Not sure whether or not they launder the linens or use cleaning products to clean anything but I highly doubt it. Only good thing about the hotel is that it is next to the beach and a 15 minute drive from South Beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't expect much when you stay here..."
The room was very questionable.... There was water marks all over the walls... The lamps and light shades were knocked over like someone through stuff all around the room... It was very cold.. Cold air blew on me all night... The bathroom was very gross also... I wouldn't stay here again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Easy and convenient for a quick one night stay. Location great. Small hotel, but the rooms are very noisyGenuine Expedia guest review
The outside looked unkempt but when we walked in it was clean and ok. The room was small and some thing were broken( blinds, control, drawers) but bed & pillows were comfortable. Service is terrible! You checkin at hotel next door, If you needed towels you need to go to the next door hotel to get them! :-(Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for"
If you want a room with' 2 full sized beds', and share it with 4 people, you will get charged extra for the 'extra 2 people', because those rooms are meant for 2 people only. To check in, we had to go to the building next door, then buzz into Hawaii hotel whenever we wanted to go in. There were no elevators, so we carried our luggages up a flight of […] stairs. The floor was dirty, so we had to wear slippers whenever we weren't in bed. At first, we thought we didn't have warm water in the shower, because we turned the knob all the way to the left, but we realized that the lever has to be in the middle, pointing up, to get the hottest water. The complementary breakfast is from 7am-9am, but it doesn't taste very good at all. It was a good hotel for people who go out and spend as little time in there as possible. The beach was nice and there were a lot of nice restaurants and CVS/Walgreens right around the block. It is very relaxing vacation until you take the bus to South Beach for more liveliness.

"Great location, horrible hotel."
We ask for an extra pillow,we were told they had none. We ask for a parking pass, we were told we couldn't get one. The room had stains all over the walls but the bathroom was nice. We were very close to the beach which made up for the dirty room and rude service. Would not recommend unless you are on a very tight budget and everything else is full […] .

nice place to stay if you don't mind the air conditioner leaking down the wall, the mold growing on a wall, and a bed that is broken we tried to put it back together but there were peices missing and it just kept coming back apart. but hey they did give us a small discount for al the problems. wasnt that nice of them. will not stay there agaIN.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Dirt, old, filfy"
Don't go there, it's cheap, but it's not worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was the most affordable for the location for two friends wanting to party on the town. The service was friendly, and the room was great compared to what we expected. We hardly stayed in the room so no complaints!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was horrible. Didn't get the room we booked and kinda shady place to stay. But for the price it was at least near the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Unless it's your only option, go elsewhere"
Staff is ok and this is the only that is ok in this hotel. Wifi doesn't work whatsoever. Had to use a connection from a place next door, but not without having to go to lobby for this. The place looks like a haunted house: there is no staff on the front desk (there is staff only on the property next door). The place is only half clean: the stairs have […] 3 pounds of sand on each step. It took them 3 days to make my room for the first time. They removed every single towel and didn't replace them. I had to call the front desk (of the property next door) to ask for fresh towels. After all not a very good choice. I think I could have done better. Got carried away because it's really across the street from the beach, but I ended up staying 10% of my time on that particular beach, so it didn't matter much. If you're travelling alone and will stay for a weekend or so, this might an option. If you're a couple I'd avoid this place by all means. If she is 25% picky she won't even leave the car to check in. If she is picky she is definitely dumping you after this hotel. For what it's worth: I've made road trips from Napa Valley all the way to San Diego and from DC all the way to Toronto (CA) always staying in roadside motels. Believe me: Hawaii hotel is much worse than any of the motels I've stayed in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
my god it was the slumiest run down hotel ? motel i have ever been in . the first room had NO lamp shade on the lamp and the second rooms lamp shade was upside down. i felt like it should be rented by the hour.. very disapointed. it had paint bubbling on the walls and in some areas a saw mold under the paint .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not a good place to sleep stay here if you just want to party all night or if you are a heavy sleeper, room is clean and comfortable if you bring your own blankets.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Didn't sleep at all, paper thin walls and windows could hear doors open and slamming people walking on the tile floors all night, walking in the room upstairs sounded as if they would crash thru the ceiling. Room was clean but it was cold and no blankets or heat had to wear extra cloth to stay warm. Never again, don't recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"For Risk-Takers Only!!"
Nothing about the outside of the building is attractive or welcoming but the inside wasn't as bad. You have to deal with the personnel at the Surf Motel next door- which is a bit inconvenient. My first room was SCARY. The walls were badly painted and certain parts near the bathroom door were rotten. Shortly ater I turned the AC on water started flowing […] from "somewhere" on to the floor. I asked to switch rooms and they did with no hassle. Surprisingly my 2nd room was WAY better. The beds and pilllows were actually very comfy and the walls were painted nicely. The only complaint I had was that the shower walls and curtain were not cleaned properly which grossed me out. Also, in the morning it was hard to sleep because I could hear every foot step and door close. The beach is a few feet away from the front door which was so nice and there's a pharmacy and eateries within walking ditsance. For the price and location, I would recommend this hotel to ADULTS ONLY and only if you just need a place to sleep for a night or two. I got lucky with that 2nd room but that may not always be the case so RENT AT YOUR OWN RISK!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs over haul"
Needs more remodeling. The outside looks outdated. The inside looks better considering it was worse before but I'm sure it could keep potentially get better one room at a time. Unfortunately the halls and rooms don't have sound insulation so you hear everything from the halls inside into the room alotGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"hotel for youngs"
medium except the reception do not send the call phone in to the room evening.irs on the there have not many chairs on the terracce.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is very old. The standard double room was tiny. Somehow I ended up with two doubles even though I booked for a Queen. If you're looking to stay in a cheap place right on the beach this place is for you. It is directly on the beach however you have to be careful with the parking, you do have to pay the meters during the day. There is a small […] fee included when you book for an electric safe for you to use in the room but the safe didn't even work in my room. Overall, it's easy on the wallet and right on the beach. I'm glad it was only a one night stay for me though. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This hotel is literally brand new and changing management. The location could my be better. It's right by the ocean and the neighborhood has a lot to offer. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the stuff is super friendly and helpful. I really recommend this hotel. My only complaint is that the maid comes knocking on your door regardless of the "do […] not disturb" sign quiet early. And the walls are a bit too thin. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Horrible. But nice beach"
I just needed a spot for a day to stay before I could check into my time share. Staying at this hotel was by far the worse decision I have ever made regarding vacation planning. The only good thing about it was that it was right across the street from the beach. The shower didn't work, the room smelled bad, and I didn't even want to touch the bed let […] alone lay in it. The only time I will be around this hotel again is when the go to the beach right across the street from it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rundown but close to beach"
The Hawaii hotel has a great location, right next to the beach in North Miami Beach. However, the price was what you would expect to pay for a really nice hotel, and it was incredibly rundown. We had to ask for towels and there was falling plaster in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needing a place urgently"
The people try to make us have a good time. The neighborhood I the best but the rooms are very small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap and close to the beach"
Some issues I had: TV was broken, AC was set too cold and couldn't be changed, safe was broken butI still got charged for it. The big plus of the Hotel is its proximitry to the beach. So if that is all you're looking for than this Hotel might be a cheap option.Genuine Expedia guest review

Not for the feint of heart; decent enough for a short stay as long as you aren't real picky. Quite dated but rate is ok and location is ehhh...ok Could be quite nice w/ some updates.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

GREAT LOCATION. I did not like the fact that every morning at 8am I had to wake up and put money in the parking meter so they will not tow my car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
must be the sanity in the rooms because the rooms are nastyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not what they advertise"
The room was ok, but there is no carpet and it was not very clean. Also, most of the rooms seem to face a building with no view of the city or the beach. It is close to the beach, but you can only see it from the window in the stairwell. We had to walk next door to check in and eat breakfast. The picture of the breakfast area is in the Hawaii, but that […] is not used anymore. The one next door is the check in and breakfast area for three hotels. The site indicated parking is $10.75 per day, but that is good only noon to noon so you have to pay $1 an hour from 8am to noon so unless you check in by noon, don't plan on sleeping in because you will have to go feed the meter.
