"Very close to the beach"
A bit dated but overall fine, the staff were really friendly and the beach is super close. Close to many bus stops which will take you down to South beach for $2Genuine Expedia guest review
Carpets in the hallways were so gross - smelled like mold terribly. Room very clean but very outdated, but who spends much time in the room when your on the beach and have a pool. The only gotcha is the valet parking service because there is NO parking. Not bad overall for the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice but no go for couples"
The over all stay at this hotel was pretty good, lots of restaurants nearby and on the beach but the room (especially kitchen and bathroom) felt very very cramped. Also if you're a couple looking for a quite place to stay I strongly do not recommend this hotel. The walls are paper thin, literally you can hear normal talking down the entire hallway so […] it's either tip toe in silence with your activities or announce your every move to everyone around you. Which in itself made being in your room a bit noisy. That and in your room you hear every footstep anyone in a room above you makes. We also had a lot of issues with the hotel with payment and it costing a lot more than was listed, even with tax + the 10$ fee. The best part was that the room was clean and we had a very nice lady check us in, but the check out service gave us a lot of attitude for no reason. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Next to the beach but overall not a good hotel"
The front desk could never track a taxi down for you. They charge a $10 hotel feel each day that they never mentioned. It is right next to the beach which is a great thing. There is a bus stop two blocks away to get to downtown Miami. The room wasn't that great. It had a queen bed in one room and a pull out couch in the other. TVs are 20" old school […] ones. I feel like this hotel makes enough money to upgrade itself and doesn't use it because it is lazy just like the people who work there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"i wouldn´t go back there"
It´s an old hotel, with worn out furniture, bathrooms, even the bedding is old. very old fashioned, maybe fron the 80´s, and nothing has been replaced ever since. the beds are not comfortable (old and hard). it´s clean though, in front of the beach. the pool is very little, not heated, and the sorroundings are like a dumpster. For the price, I would […] definately never go back, there´s many cheaper and better hotels in the same block. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"weres the ac"
Evrything was good exceppt their was no ac....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a disappointment. We wanted something a little closer to South Beach. Granted we booked days before New Years, however Expedia didn't let us know just how far North on Miami Beach the hotel was. Parking was not available in the hotel garage we were told to park 2 blocks away in a public lot. The desk clerk behaved as if we had disturbing him […] by standing at the desk wishing to check in. The room was okay simply a place to sleep. The decor is dated at best but was okay. With a little updating, friendly service staff and better information on its true location this hotel would improve. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Avoiding South Beach Prices"
Clean and quiet room. Front desk very informative and pleasant. Hotel less than a block away from the beach. A bus ride away from South Beach (15-20 minute ride). Bus stop is about 2 blocks away. Restaurants, a few juice bars, Cuban food, IHOP, supermarket--all along Collins Avenue. Not much to do up here, but traveling down to South Beach for fun nights […] isn't difficult. You can probably save money on hotel and food by staying in the 69th Street area, and then simply take the bus down to South Beach for the night life. The bus runs every hour after midnight, which is what the front desk told us. But there are cabs that will take you up north again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay - you get what you paid for"
Old building. Pretty worn down. The bed is not really comfortable. Friendly staff and clean though. Nice beach right behind the house.Genuine Expedia guest review
nice room for the price very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close But NO Cigar"
The hotel was very nice; however, my issue was with Hotels.com. They guaranteed an oceanfront with a balony (what I specifically asked for) and the hotels.com agent guaranteed me that. Once I checked into the hotel, I was told that the hotel does not offer oceanfronts to hotels.com and I can pay extra for an upgrade. Very disappointed about that and […] disappointed in receiving the incorrect information by Hotels.com. I could have gone on-line and booked my own room for the price.

"Room was not cleaned"
There were about 2 employees of the hotel that were actually nice. The rest had attitudes like they didn't want to help with our requests, which were only to have our floors vacuumed while we were there since we stayed a week. The rooms are outdated and uncomfortable. We had two rooms and one of the toilets was hard to flush. We had to pay an extra […] hotel fee after being told that everything was paid in full. The parking is valet parked or metered, but you have to pay for either. The valet looked through our vehical and messed with our GPS settings. The pool is nice but you can't use it after 10:30 pm. The nice thing about the hotel is that it is right on the beach where we took long walks on the walkway and it was close to restaurants. I will not stay here EVER again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
As I sit here n the lobby as there is no wifi in the rooms, which for an international guest is pretty terrible. There's a lady flipping angry behind complaining to the hotel because they've charged her for 2 weeks she wasn't even here. I came down last night to attend to an important business matter which the man at reception, was extremely rude and […] would not let me make an important call to las Vegas. The hotel is in a terrible area but it's close to the beach, so if all you were after is the beach this place is great. How ever, the rooms r great, you deff get our money's worth there, and the cleaning service always do a great jb Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Everything you need....right on the beach!"
The associates at this hotel are very helpful and friendly; the room, common areas, and grounds are kept quite clean. The hotel has all the basics, but is a bit worn. Its proximity to the beach is amazing, and Subway and McDonalds are right across the street when the kids get hungry!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It's an awesome hotel. It basically has anything you could ask for, on the beach, pool, gym, it's close to lots of places. The only bad thing we found that it needed was wifi in the rooms, but it did have wifi in the lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Value and location can't be beat"
Room was very big for its price perfect location right on the beach nice size pool and great valet service great resturants also near Pharmacy incase you run out of sun block for the price I couldn't have found better... It was my perfect spontaneous weekendGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It is very nice to have the beach right outside the hotel. I think it was a little bit expensive, but overall it was OK.Genuine Expedia guest review
"better choices if you have the $$$"
nice location, great beach and pool area. lobby was very impressive , too bad the rooms were not. everything was outdated and in poor condition. it was very clean though, nice staff, no parking on premises (except for 24/ valet). probably would stay somewhere else next time. if they would fix everything (new tv's, beds, furniture,etc) i would try it […] again at the same price--p Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Read the reviews"
I wish I would have read the reviews of this hotel before I booked it. Not much more I can say about that hasn't already been posted. Would never stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
would NEVER go back!!!!! front desk staff was extremely RUDE. Room was run down and plumbing was awful!!! Had to pay 10 dollars for pool and gym,what hotel charges for pool? Nickled and dimed you on anything they could.Again, would NEVER GO BACK THERE!!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Dont Walk!! Run Away From This Place. It was Horrible. Looks nothing like the pictures on line. Horrible!!Horrible!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Don't confuse this hotel with the Ritz, but it was clean, everything worked, and the staff was friendly. I am not a SoBe person, so the location was great for me. This nhd has a very strong Latin flavor, which I like. If you like that, you can't beat the location and the beach is <100 feet from the hotel. Probably 5 restaurants really worth trying within […] one block of the hotel. I'll be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Crystal Beach, good location, shabby conditions"
We stayed two nights in a room where a closet door fell down and saw remains of a dead cockroach. We switched to an ocean front room where conditions were nicer - for the extra $50 per night. My husband was ill and needed a prescription filled. The staff did not know that local pharmacies are NOT open on Sunday nights (store open, not pharmacy). I had […] to drive across toll bridge to Miami to find an open pharmacy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the money."
5 night stay....Not really in south beach where we wanted to be, but located right on the beach. Beach was clean and peaceful. Access to pool is outside of hotel around to the back (weird) but secured pool area. Parking is definatetly cheaper on streets vs. valet parking, but an adventure to find close parking some nights. Our room was out dated, but […] clean and comfortable for the price. The Staff was helpful, and friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expensive but great location"
Very pricey for what you get. Parking and resort fee jack up the price even more. Helpful staff. Fold out bed not comfortable, but when are they ever. Great beach right behind the hotel. The best feature. There is also a decent gym on site for guests. A plus for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Service and Very Clean Room but"

"Crystal beach Miami"
This hotel has to be one of the worst hotels I've stayed at. The front desk was a bit rude. There was hair all in our bathtub and bath towels. The rooms look absolutely nothing like the pictures. Overall we were very disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"On beach - close to South Beach"
This is a budget hotel on the beach so you get what you pay for. Our room was small - overlooking a discusting run down building next door with homeless people squatting in it. The room was fine though - recently been updated and handy to have a small kitchen etc. just had to keep blinds closed to block out view. Customer service was the down fall in […] this place. Stuffed up check in, stuffed up check out. I wouldn't stay here again - pay a little extra and stay somewhere with a balcony over looking that beautiful beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is an older hotel, but the price is right. The staff is amazing as is the location. It is right on the beach and has several delicious restaurants all around as well as many shops. The area is very clean and friendly. As I said it is older but a great value for you money; I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location - hotel a bit dated."
The suites are in a nice location, right next to the beach and close to many bars and shops, but the room was a bit dated and some things did not work, such as the window not opening, but the staff were very helpful and the pool was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
bad smell, old, far from downtown, dont worth the moneyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach but cheap for a reason"
The hotel itself is in a particularly tired state - the room is past a complete refurbishment by around 5-10 years, furniture is worn and damaged, some skirting boards missing, bathroom seals are poor and as such full of dirt. If you are used to a really nice hotel, you will be quite disappointed but if you are looking for a bolt-hole to crash in at […] night and aren't too fussy with a "hostel" type arrangement, this is for you. I'm sure at some point in the past, this place was great. If you have a hire car, parking is an issue but for a small daily fee they have valet parking and they are really good and helpful. Staff are great. Would I stay again? Yes at the right price, and knowing what I know about the rooms, it won't be such a shock to arrive after a long haul flight to be disappointed by them, so overall 3/5 "ok" Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I would say that it's clean but needs upgrading immediately because it looks dingy and outdated.... Not much staff present but the guy at the front counter was nice and gave good service along with wifi lolGenuine Expedia guest review
"not the best but still good........."
i liked this hotel. the staff were friendly and helpful. it's right by the beach. my room was always nice and clean. lots of restaurants to choose from. oh btw, if you're into sweet stuff, there is an ice cream shop just around the corner. my only issues are 1) toilet has weak flushing power. 2) door between the bedroom and the bathroom could use a […] replacement. 3) way too many kids. 4) no toothpaste. other than that, i definitely would stay there again. for other info, this hotel is next door to the normandy plaza hotel (which has closed down). for people who don't know, the normandy plaza hotel is where spree killer andrew cunanan lived in for two months prior to murdering fashion king gianni versace back in july of 1997. to get to south beach you need to catch a bus at the corner of 72nd st and abbot. a five minute walk from the crystal beach suites.

Okay, for the price it wasn't bad. I have it the benifit of the doubt but it was pretty bad. The place was decent but there were many things that made me cringe and others that I found I wasn't happy with: The door to the room and bathroom never closed shut completely The sink had rust marks The edges of the bathtub was still dirty The closet door […] was broken in the living room The toilet never flushed properly The moulding for the doors were falling apart The blanket was too thin to keep warm (luckily they had two fleece blankets in one of the closets) The lamp in the room didn't work (had to use our phone light at night) Clock wasn't working I explored the second closet in the living room area and relized it was for the water heater, this is what topped it off...it was all dusty/rusty/mouldy/stinks If nething I would not repeat. The price was good but I'd rather spend more for a better well kept and maintained hotel. Even tho it was only a place to sleep but I'd rather have a hotel where I CAN say I feel comfortable staying in if we ever decided to stay in and relax Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Ideal location for all conveniences of north beach. all restaurants and everything as near as next door or same block or just blocks away. The hotel was great. There was small incovenience of low water pressure on shower. perhaps different shower head would simply resolve that. also bed was hard, but it was ok. I was overall, very happy with this […] hotel and staff, and definitely will return on my very next vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
