"A bit expensive for what it is"
Nice hotel but take it only if you want/need to be in the area of Miami otherwise I would recommend others hotels who are cheaper with more facilities. Personnel was friendly and helpful but still, it was expensive and it is not a 5 star hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth the money but not 4-star quality"
We took this hotel for its price and were not sorry. However, it is not a 4-star hotel. It is somewhere between a hostel and a 3-star. When we got there we could not park to check in because someone was blocking the entry (no attendant). At the check-in counter 2 people were standing who could not help us and we had to wait 10-15 minutes for the check-in […] clerk to return. The room had a nice decor and was good sized and clean. However, the walls and ceiling were so thin we could hear (and were woken up by) neighboring guests from all sides. Breakfast was really lousy - there was no bread and otherwise very minimal food (less than in a typical 3 star motel). Location is nice - close to the beach even if 30 minutes away from Miami Beach.

"Daddy O is great"
this is a fine boutique hotel. i wish they had an elevator and didn't charge for parking or early check-in, and i've had difficulties with the phones and the wifi connectivity in the past, but not on my most recent visit. the staff is very helpful (Courtney in particular i find awe-inspiring), their free pre-cruise parties (with open bar) are great […] fun and great opportunities to meet one's fellow cruisers, and the rooms are lovely. the free continental breakfast is nice too, though the bagels were down just a notch in quality on my last visit. overall a lovely place to stay.

Great location, quiet but a quick drive to areas north and south. Cute, friendly, comfortable stay. Decor is beautiful and beds are very comfortable. Would definitely stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"cute, small, amazing location"

"Nice Hotel, Quiet Area"
Nice Hotel, Very Quiet Area, Good if thats what your looking for. Small rooms. But very nice. Parking is limited. Hotel staff very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My new home in Miami"
I travel a lot, stay in 5 star hotels regularly (expedia could confirm that), and this little joint with an appropriately sized small room that feels larger than it is will be a good choice going forward. Plus its restaurant is the Palm !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Value in Beautiful Area"
Great location and great hotel, the room was quite comfortable and the breakfast served was a nice perk. The beach is about a 5 minute walk as is a beautiful path to run and walk through town. Great area and location, highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Interesting refurbished hotel"
Main lobby has steps both to street and to room floor level, but staff extremely helpful with luggage. Parking is either an extra fee or meters that must be fed by 8AM, but valet service was fine. New decor extremely striking visually, & bed comfortable, but very little place to put things in the bathroom except the floor. Unusual shower design with […] both overhead & a hand wand, but control for wand hard to see or reach. Wi-fi not working the evening we were there, but staff tried hard to help.

"Nice place for a quiet night"
After staying in South Beach for the last few days, I needed something a little slower, and quieter. This place worked out perfectly. Nice, clean room, inexpensive valet parking and comfortable beds. There were a few nice mid-priced restaurants around the corner which topped off the quiet evening. Just what I needed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value for the location"
nice layout, the front deck is a nice place to sit; breakfast is comparable to any at a Marriott. The noise coming from other rooms is almost unbearable. I was prepared for some noise (as I had seen the other reviews), but the noise level was so annoying that I actually yelled to the people next door to "QUIET DOWN". I had emailed the hotel in advance, […] asking for a quieter room but I'm not sure that request was granted. This hotel is NOT for you if: 1. you are travelling on business. The wifi never worked effectively, I was there for 5 days. The noise level can be so bad that you cannot work effectively in your room, respond to phone calls, or get sleep at an early hour. 2. if you are travelling with children. One room next to me had a small child that cried all night long. I could hear the parents getting frustrated with their little one (not the child's fault, or theirs!) because they knew that the noise was carrying over to other guest rooms. I would not want to be on vacation and continually have to tell my child to keep quiet. Other than that, it is a very safe area, the hotel staff is responsive to anything you need, i.e irons are not in the room, you have to request them. Bed is very comfortable and the rooms are clean. For the area, you can't beat the hotel rate. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect place to stay"
Very friendly and helpful staff Comfortable room in impeccable condition Care about each guest Looking forward to coming back whenever I come in to MiamiGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a clean feeling"
I walk into the room and it smells weird, like a moldy kind of smell. The USED bar of soap lying on the side of the sink was not a reassuring sign of the level of detail put into cleaning the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would not stay there again"
Seriously in need of renovations. Walls are paper-thinGenuine Hotels.com guest review
When I checked in I was told I was getting a room in a quiet part of the hotel but much to my surprise all the walls are tissue paper thin. I opened the door and quickly discovered that the room smelled of cigarette smoke. The folks next door like to watch TV with the volume cranked up til midnight and oh before I forget to mention they had a small […] (barking) dog. Next time I spend over $250. per night I'll go to South Beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Beautiful area . Quite& Romantic. Looking forward to the next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive but cheap - wouldn't stay there again"
Carpet in the room was dirty. Continental breakfast was terrible. We had a "do not disturb" sign, but when returned from our day, the sign was missing and the room was "cleaned". The cleaning lady must've tossed my ear plugs as I couldn't find them. Without the ear plugs, it was hard to get a good night sleep. Also, FYI, the hotel is pretty far from […] South Beach.

"Just as good as everyone says"
We only needed to spend a night before boarding the cruise ship but still wanted to have a good experience. We originally booked an airport hotel for convenience but after seeing so many good reviews about Daddy O we decided to switch. It turned out to be a good decision. The hotel is cute and clean. Front desk staff recommended an Italian restaurant […] around the corner and the food there is great. After dinner we walked four blocks to the beach boardwalk and enjoyed the breeze. The breakfast next day was great and healthy - we were going to enjoy breakfast buffet every day on the ship and we didn't mind having oatmeal, yogurt and fresh fruit for breakfast at all. The only thing to keep in mind is that they don't have an elevator so my husband had to carry all the large suitcases up and down. Overall the hotel is great and we definitely loved it!

"Excellent hotel, great location"
the hotel staff was very friendly, the continental breakfast that was included was great, the room very comfortable, great location, away from all the noise of south beach, but only a 15 minute drive from there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"very comfotable accomodations"
Overnight stay only. Very nice reception area with friendly staff willing to assist. Comfortable room with very cosy bed. Nice toiletries especially the body lotion. Would stay here again anytime.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great area, beautiful suroundings"
Extreamly friendly staff every one we met was incredible only down side was the room size king suite not that largeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and classy"
We enjoyed our stay at DaddyO very much. Nice hotels in the Miami area are very expensive so we knew this was a fair price especially given the time of year. The neighborhood is really nice, you can walk to anything you need and its quiet at night. The location was great for us being close to family and close to South Beach. You still need a car to […] get around the area and the hotel offered parking at a fair price or you could use the meters. We ate at an Italian restaurant a block or so from the hotel and it was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and modern and the bed was great. We live near their sister hotel in NJ and I had high expectations. This hotel did not disappoint and was much better than some of the others we stayed in the area. I felt it was worth the cost and made our stay comfortable and relaxing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what you expect"
The hotel tries to be an upscale butique hotel, but in reality it is old and badly maintained (dirty). There are stains on the carpet and bathroom hardware.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What does this mean ?"
It was clean except the carpet was very dirty. Rooms were all full so they were unable to change our rooms. Also it would have been nice to have a mirror in the ro to apply make up & over lap with your spouse while getting ready to go out . (The only mirror was in the restrom). The employees were fantastic in every way ! We would go back and ask for […] a clean carpet . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Impossible to sleep there"
We were located next to the AC modules located in the central part. They were very noisy ( 55-60 dB during the night) and we weren't able to sleep. Maybe we weren't lucky to have one of these 5 rooms. Other rooms are located further.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Christmas Eve stay to shop in Bal Harbour"
The drip shower was fine, room were small and could have used a better chair, sliding bathroom door was noisy to move, a smaller bed for a couple would help, breakfast the hard boiled eggs and orange juice were good, no elevator for second floor, stairs had double railings and narrow for two so wait, plenty of parking for a moderate fee, the beach 3 […] blocks away has a rocky shore for about 5 feet so take the time to look for seashells.

"What an experience"
Spent one night there before heading over to Sunlife Stadium for Patriot's game. Went to the restaurant and had a fantastic romantic meal with my wife. Next morning got up too late for the breakfast and when they saw us hunting around for food they reset all the breakfast goodies for us. I will stay here every opportunity I get.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Breakfast Included... So So."
The included breakfast is very very standard, and there is no place to sit and its because the hotel is tiny. But overall is a great place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very disappointing experience."
I would like to say that my negative review is not a reflection on the staff, as we got a polite service. However, our experience was very disappointing. We were looking for a place to stay on a short notice and made a decision to go to Daddy O based on all the positive reviews. Unfortunately, when we arrived, we found nothing like the hotel we were […] expecting. I have a long list of issues, such as: Very old and very dirty carpet in the hallways; Scratched walls; Stains on the furniture; Paper thin walls and ceiling, so you can hear people around you, loud and clear. (We were waking up at night by the loud A/C unit going on at a room next door!); Coffee machine in a room was a joke, making some kind of brown water. No place to have a normal breakfast, the space is tiny, crowded and totally unwelcoming; Very small closet, with 4 hangers. Smelly hallways, as people were smoking in their rooms (despite non-smoking policy). No elevator, so you will be carrying your luggage upstairs yourself (no help was offered either). Also, I don't think the area is that good, really nothing to do there. The walk to the beach is about 5-10 minutes. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and presentable hotel"
I was very impressed with the staff here. When checking in, the girl at the front desk was extremely pleasant and welcoming. She even said hello to me by name at breakfast the next morning! The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. My only complaint would be the quality of the windows. The room we had overlooked the front porch where chairs […] were set up for lounging. At night when other guests were using that area, we could clearly hear their conversation and smell their cigarettes, as if the windows were open. We of course checked and they were not open. However, if your room doesn't directly overlook the porch you will be fine. Our friends who stayed in the next room did not experience our trouble. Overall, I would definitely stay here again - just not in the same room. I would recommend the hotel to others! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Needs major room renovations"
When I checked in the front desk was very friendly and helpful but my room was terrible. The rug was so stained and dirty. It also had not been vacuumed from the previous guest. I requested a different room but the hotel was sold out(as were all the other hotels in the area). They sent the valet to vacuum my room( no separate cleaning staff!?) My room […] was on the first floor and my windows were not able to be locked. I felt uneasy the entire night and made sure to walk on the disgusting carpet with shoes. The worst hotel room I have ever stayed in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Want to catch up on your German?"
Very nice. Friendly staff, small, comfortable rooms. Close to the beach and various establishments. High level of German customers, for some reason. Restaurant next door is over priced, stuffy, and not as good as it should be.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value in Miami beach area"
The hotel was in a good area. We were offered a free glass of wine at checkin. The hotel is about a 15 minute drive from the Miami beach strip. The room bar was very well stocked and the prices for items were the lowest I've seen in a hotel, for instance a small bottle of wine for $4.50. Overall, a good value, but somewhat away rom the beach or the […] strip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Extremely pleasant IF..."
This is a very cute, clean and cozy little hotel. It was a bit smaller than I expected but the service more than made up for it. The "IF" part...the bed was super soft which I found to be a blessing and a curse - very comfortable if you have no back issues and major morning pain if you do.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and convenient"
It was a nice place to hold our base while visiting Miami, close to the beach and dinning. We used our room mostly for sleeping and keeping a base. Convenient parking available. Pet friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel close to the beach. Only 4 blocks away."
Really nice staff, the hotel and rooms were clean and it's pretty close to the beach and the Bay Harbor Shops. Doesn't have elevator so you have to carry your suitcase upstairs. We didn't like the bed. It has huge pillows and it was hard to sleep with it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff is very friendly, and helpful. Please notice that there are no elevators, just stairs. Breakfast was plentiful, beds are very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
there are lot of strong and some weak points of that hotel. If you want calm, choise this hotel. There are few people on the beach (which is 5-6 min. walk). But all the party places, bars areon South Beach. The taxi costs 50USD to South Beach one-way.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was nice and clean, but the carpet had old stains in it. One other note the hotel did not have a pool or gym, that was very disappointing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
