Our room was wonderful.. Very modern & clean. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The shower was huge. It was also a short walk to the beach. We loved everything about this hotel!

"Decent hotel"
Our visit for our anniversary was good. But we wish we could have reserved a place closer to the beach. You have to travel a few blocks to make it to the beach. One thing we wish was different inside the bathroom was that the glass doors would be all the way not only half way, it allows too much watet to splash to the outside, making a mess of water in the bathroom afterwards.

"Nice hotel, too far away from Miami or South Beach"
The hotel is really nice with a fabulous staff. If you are looking for a hotel with easy access to Miami Beach or South Beach however, this is NOT the area to be in. The roads in this part of the Greater Miami area are clogged, so it takes a long time to get anywhere and taxis are not plentiful or reliable in showing up. The heating in my room also did not work which would not be a problem usually. It was the coldest night of the year when I stayed though, so the room was chilly. The service staff was available to give me extra blankets which helped.

Everything was excellent! Front desk staff were friendly and helpful--esp Billy. Room was spotless. Location was great. The walls are very thin but it was not a problem. Parking was easy--I recommend self parking--their are plenty of spots around the hotel. Will def stay again!

"Daddy O"
The gentleman that checked us in was not very interested in things like parking and questions about where to eat dinner. The first desk person did not set us up for parking, when we came back and asked about parking, a different gentleman was at the desk he looked completely disgusted when we asked him to explain the parking policy. Parking ended up being $16 instead of the $12 that was listed on hotels.com. The parking lot was a municipal lot and the hotel would go out and put money in the meters as needed. The two ladies that were there in the morning were completely different they were friendly courteous and very nice.

"Spotty Wifi, Thin Walls"
Walls are thin, Wifi is spotty, and it's a good fifteen minute walk to the beach. The neighborhood is basically high rise condos as far as the eye can see, pretty boring. You also have to pay a lot of tolls getting in and out of the bay harbor islands. The service is great here though, folks that work there are friendly and happy to help.

"Reception bad but room was great"
Late night Guest Service guy was obnoxious. Kept trying to joke with me even though it was obviously not reciprocated. Just a slimy person. A young lady with a beautiful smile and positive demeanor is much needed behind that counter. Parking is horrendous. The room was fabulous. Great design beautiful selection of colors and the bed was very comfortable. Showers were great too and everything was very clean. An overall descent stay... Enjoyed the room very much.

Our stay was wonderful! The staff was super friendly and professional. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. They had a very filling continental breakfast every morning. My boyfriend and I had such a relaxing stay that I joked with the women at the front desk we were moving in. The hotel is walking distance from a lot of great shops, places to eat, and the beach! We are definitely going to stay at Daddy O the next time that we are in Miami.

"Nice little hotel near Fancy Bal Harbour"
Pretty rooms with free wi fi and a simple continental breakfast. Good beds and luxury shower. Staff was outstanding. Next door to The Palm, Miami's version of the New York and DC steakhouse. Three blocks to the ocean, two blocks to Bal Harbour shops. only $12 for parking, a bargain in this neighborhood. Only major issues are these: no elevator (2 stories) and thin walls.

"Chic but bring earplugs"
I just had one night to try this hotel out. I'd read the reviews that mentioned thin walls but I knew I'd be beat and it would be fine. They are THIN. The ceiling is thin too. I heard everything from the neightbor and whomever was upstairs doing laps around his room starting at 4am was shaking the ceiling so much the light fixture was rattling (which woke me up). The styling of the hotel is great. Nice design work, great bathroom, thoughtful space usage. It's just a pity they didn't spend some more time and money on adding some sound deadening to the building before they remodeled it.

"Horrible experience!!"
Horrible experience. We were there for two days and didn't take room service when we called down to request more towels front desk was being nasty. We asked for water at front desk. When we checked we saw a few charges for water no one had mentioned that they would charge us for it. Most hotels give it for free. The only thing you can see from your room is a dirty window that was probably never cleaned. Oh and there is no pool!!! Not sure why this is rated as a four star hotel this should probably be rated as a 2 star hotel! I'm never going back there!!!

"OK. Just OK."
This hotel is a little tucked away, which was perfect for what I needed... a great sleep. The rooms were clean and nice, the front desk service was OK (the morning agent seemed permanently frazzled and short with customers). Overall an OK stay, although the walls and floors are very thin - you hear people walking above you and can hear a lot between the walls. An OK stay, but I probably wouldn't choose this hotel again.

"Nice boutique hotel by the ocean"
Stayed for a night at this hotel on January 1st. It's a smaller hotel with nicely decorated rooms and common areas. The location is pretty convenient. It's north of Miami beach but easily accessible by car. When we checked in the check in guy was really nice and because of an Internet outage he gave us free Parking. The only drawback is the rather poor (continental) breakfast and the lack of breakfast space. People where eating their breakfast around the lobby area. Other than that I would definitely suggest this establishment.

"Ok hotel but not worth the proce"
I stayed here 4 nights while visiting family with my husband. we pre paid for this hotel and I expected to have a room reservation. Natalie at the front desk told us she was extremely busy getting European travelers rooms because they'd lost their reservations at other hotels in the area. Why did she feel she needed to share this? The room when we finally got one was ok. Small, stained carpet, burned out bathroom bulb, dusty coffee maker and generally not up to standards for what we paid. Customer service at the front desk was poor. Breakfast was all breads cereal and yogurt. No fruit. Coffee maker was the only thing I enjoyed.

The hotel is a small hotel, well located. Air Conditioning is very loud and not integrated, we didn´t get a relax sleep. Check-in is very slow as there is only one person at the reception and takes more than 10 minutes per customer. Rooms were clean but housekeeping is not cleaning properly. People is very friendly there and international calls are for free, at least in the rate I paid.

"Keep looking."
This was the worst check in that I've ever experienced. We were in the area well before check in time, so we decided to drop our bags at the hotel, go sight see, and check in later. There wasn't a bell boy in sight, and when I requested one from the only front desk person, I was told something about "being right with me", and "helping all these other people", and something about a shift change. After continuing to wait, I asked again to simply leave my bag, and the response made me feel like I was bothering or harassing the front desk. When it was finally my turn, I had to spell my first name three times,(Jean), and I clearly heard her say that MY accent was hard to understand. I'm from the U. S. and she clearly was not. I received a call hours later from the hotel telling us our room had a broken air conditioner, and they would be glad to move our luggage. I chose this hotel because of the amazing reviews I read online, placing it in the "excellent" column. When I arrived I expected many things from this wonderful place I'd read about, but excellence is far from what I received. All room views are of a roof or of a parking lot, the breakfast choices were poor, and the line for coffee, made one by one, was excruciatingly long. I cannot imagine how this hotel was rated so consistently high. It's adequate, but I would give it only a 5 out of 10, and would never choose to return.

"Budget Hotel"
I was looking for a place to stay close to the miami convention center that would be a less expensive alternative, than the hotels near by. I chose Daddy O because it got a very good rating. The hotel does offer some very nice room amenities, although, I wanted a quiet room with complete black out. There are shutters in the room I stayed in and even when tightly closed, the room is quite light in the day. The drapes do not cover the shutters, which would have markedly improved the room darkening effect. The hallway floors leading to my room were quite dirty and the hotel itself had a bit of a musty smell. The room seemed to be newly renovated. The bed was comfortable. There is no bathtub, only a stand up shower. There was hardly any water pressure for the second floor room I was in. Additionally, I asked for a quiet room and the receptionist said she didn't know how quiet any of the rooms were. I got an unattached room. I could hear the TV from a nearby room. The TV did not bother me, but made me realize the rooms were not soundproofed. The free breakfast was just standard. It included hard boiled eggs, choice of instant oatmeal or raisin bran. They only had whole milk. They should also offer at least 2% milk. They also had 2 choices of yogurt, bagels, and wrapped danish, coffee, tea, cocoa, filtered water and orange juice. Fresh fruit offered was oranges and rotten bananas. Quick Check in. there was limited parking on the street. Detachable shower head didn't work.

This hotel is close to the northern beaches of Miami Beach (Bay Harbor Island). In the vicinity there are also shops reaturants and a mall with many luxury goods shops. The staff was friendly and able to suggest interesting area to visit as well as restaurants, shops and beaches. Unique contro the breakfast area is too little the cupboard in the room. The breakfast is good.
