"NOT AS BAD AS OTHER REVIEWS"
I was a bit hesitant after reading some of the negative reviews... BUT what I experienced was the opposite. If you're looking for a lavish RESORT this isnt it. This was an excellent room located in the Prime of Collins Avenue right across the street from the beach and the price $$ was great for the location. If you go to South Beach to Party and enjoy […] the Beach then this is it. It has no pool but, what do u need the pool for if the beautiful beach is right across the street? I commented to the front desk that my stay wasnt at all bad and the reviews were so negative... They did say they have made lots of improvements - I was happy with my stay. Yes there are stairs and an old fashioned elevator and actuall key needed to get into the rooms.. but not bad at all for a place to sleep in.. wake up, go to beach, come back get dressed, go party and then back to sleep... No complaints here :) The staff was very friendly and accomodating to anything we needed. And they have a little snack place in the lobby where you can purchase a light breakfast and lunch instead of paying $100 for lunch on the strip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean rooms Friendly staff Comfortable beds Great location Difficult to manage elevator Elevator only goes to the 2nd floor, hotel has three floors Can't control the air conditioningGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We missed a coffee maker in the room. And even hotel didn't provide a coffee even in the lobby. Clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointed nj resident"
Tv didn't show clearly and no one fixed it. Also there aren't any microwaves in the hotel that's unacceptable. I'd never stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Choose another hotel!!"
So cold in the room! For a little bit more money we could have stayed at another location. I won't stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our hotel was a upgraded recreation of 1950's Cuban Miami. Very nice concept. Unfortunate I was quite disappointed. Walls in our room were visibly damaged, and our bathroom door was split in half and would wedge itself to the floor half open. Our windows were physically bolted shut which allowed no air access or emergency escape. The bathroom tub finish […] was peeling off, as well as a bleached smell amongst the hallways. I personally enjoyed my vacation besides the fact of our hotel. I also would not recommend to anyone this hotel nor will I be a returning customer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It's an okay hotel. There wasn't anything to special or spectacular about it. It's definitely an older hotel. We had an ocean view room and the curtains didn't block out the sun very well in the mornings. There was music blaring until 1:30 in the morning from the lobby snack bar/food service stand.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, but terrible room"
Let's start for one window missing, having some paper boards covering ! As consequence all the noise from ocean drive in your room! TV who looks was bought a 15 years ago, looks crazy to me, since u can get a flat screen tv for 70 dollars ?!?? Bathroom wasn't clean enough, had hair in the bath( no my of course) !! Honest the place need renovation!! […] Only plus the staff, who tried be nice with all the complaints I made since the first minute I got there !! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The valet cost me my car rental"
Do not stay here!! All hotels on sobe are gross but this tops it. The staff do not know what they are doing during check in... The valet guys are jerks and expect a tip Everytime you arrive and when you take your car. I am convinced they took the cover to the mirror of my rental.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ocean Drive Hotel"
Was nice, compared to many of the hotels in the street, it really was niceGenuine Expedia guest review
At first glance, this hotel has about 80 years' history and perfect location in the south beach. But the staff is nude and check-in time is strictly fixed. We have to wait 4 fours before 3 mp to check in. Besides, the noise at night is so loud that you can not sleep the whole night. Definitely not recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
disappointed. Windows dirty, Window blinds all broken. Awnings all torn and blowing in the wind. would not close. Air conditioner ran 24 hrs. Register broken--could not be turned off. lots more broken including light switch and bathroom door handle. there's more....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"New Years Getaway."
Compared to the other hotels we've stayed at on Ocean dr in South beach, this one so far is better than the others.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not far to the beach"
Closer to some of the best restuarant in the south actually. I like the facilities and style, it reminds me of my hometown, which is a beautiful island city. The staff are nice. Rooms are clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was disappointed in my stay at your hotel. 1. The second night we stayed our room over flooded. They move us to a new room. However the room air condition did not work. We called downstairs several times. Fourth night someone came out to fixed the air. We were promise a refund for one night and have not received that yet. The front desk clerk name […] was Lenna.

"Good location but not worth the money"
The hotel is rather out dated. The check in and check out process takes a long time. The first room we were given, on the third floor was disgusting. The curtains were falling apart, the walls were dirty and it reeked of vomit. This, after a walk up since the elevator only goes to the second floor. So, we asked for another room, which they tried to […] charge us more for, and then they gave to us since they apparently knew about the vomit. We get to the new room and there is a fairly fresh stain on the bedspread. The place, overall, is rather dirty and there is music vibrating the walls until 4 am and the sound of people throwing empty bottles most of the night in to the dumpster directly below our room.

"Terrible Hotel 1!"
Absolutely sick place !! Rude staff, unclean rooms, stinking corridors , noisy rooms (all the happy new year shoutouts were clearly heard inside room) Only good thing is location of the hotel .... Heavily priced for a sick room ...Genuine Expedia guest review
"definetly not worth the cost of the room"
the hotel was in a great spot , first we took a really really old evelator to the second floor then had to walk up 1 flight of stairs to our room on the thirs floor, when we got there the key wouldnt open the room so we had to go back down and wait for the room to be opened, the bed was not stationary on the floor so if was moving with the smallest […] move, it creeked and buckled in the middle, the lap shade was broken and you could hear alot of noices from the alley way , they had the nerve to charge a 100 deposit for the room and I must tell you nothing in the room was remotly close to that value, quite dissapointed in the cost of the room in relation to what was offered Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the worst hotel i have ever been. The washbasin was broken..Lot of dust on window.....Bed was also very noisy ...... AC is not adjustable ... walls are also very thin and you can hear the noises from next room ... Windows is not properly sealed and lot of disturbance from outside ......Genuine Expedia guest review
"On the main strip - great location, decent for pri"
The room was large so it accommodated our group well. It was insanely cold in the room, but it was nice since it was right on the main street where we could walk to the beach, the restaurants and bars.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is excellent. The staff is very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ocean front view"
they didn't have clean quilts, therefore I requested one and they gave us supposedly the only one they had and it was full of holes, looked 10 years old, TV doesn't look good, bed squeaks by simply sitting on it, parking is $30 a day in addition to the rate or you have to park in the streets and risk getting towed...too expensive for the type of hotel […] it was Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This is a hostel in hotel's clothing"
I think before you consider this hotel, you must first decide what kind of trip you're taking. This is not a hotel for families or people who want quiet. This is on Ocean Drive, which is by design noisy at night. There is also music that comes from the hotel lobby until late. Because of the hotel's incredible proximity to the beach, there is no incentive […] for them to make any serious upgrades. The space plays like a hostel, with conditions that most would find appalling or deplorable in any other hotel. The room was not awful and had a flat screen television, but the rest of the hotel cannot be ignored. I would only recommend this space to young people going for spring break or people who planned to spend absolutely no time in the space. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"This is the worst hotel i have ever been"
The hotel was the worst hotel I have ever been. The elevator was too old and did not go to the 3th floor, we carried our own luggage for 1 floor. The service attention was terrible and rude. The room was in the entrance of the room. It was basic and old. the bathroom was no comfortable and open to the main entrance. The wash bowl was broke and not comfortable […] to use. During the day the ac is not enoght it was soo hot inside. And the asked for a deposit which is was not say anyrhing when i booked. I do not recommend the hotel for any ocassion or any reason.

"The worse hotel ever been at"
took to long for the check in no fridge no microwave we had to call every day customer service to remind to clean up the room reception is terrible looking bathrooms smells extra charges for parking !! and still got a ticket they parked the car in the wrong areaGenuine Expedia guest review
Plumbing is outdated. Toilet clogged easily and after overflowing into the bathroom and out into the hallway, it took the hotel staff from 11 PM to 9 AM to have some one into clean it up. Very dissatisfied with hotel stay. Additional $30.00 per day parking fee not mentioned while booking hotel on internet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the stay but not again"
The hotel was very cold and unable to control the temp. It took too long to get additional towels and washclothes from the front desk. The elevator only went to the 2nd floor requiring guests to walk an additional flight of stairs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Outdated but great location"
Hotel is in great location. Lobby is outdated and some front awnings are damage. Outside apperance not that good. A good hotel just to spend the night. Room comfort is excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review

"only close to beach"
hotel is very close to beach. location is very good for beaches and clubs. but only that. there is nothing about hotel. dirty bathroom, loudly street, very old room. hotel valet took 30$ per night from us. but there are lots of public parking for 7$. there are lots of hotels arround south beach. you musn't stay in a loudly place.Genuine Expedia guest review
I would rate this place a -10 if I could. The air conditioning is set to 1 temperature for the entire hotel and you can't change it. It was freezing in the room so I opened the window to let some heat in and the window was broken. There was sheets stuffed in the air conditioning vent. The elevator was broken. The tile in bathtub and in the sink was […] broken. The TV was a 1980s lil 13 inch TV. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"I can never stay here again!"
This hotel got such a poor review from me, I was not allowed to post my original review. So here goes another. The temperature in the room could not be controlled, so the room was always freezing. Just one vent spitting freezing cold air around the clock. I had to ask for fresh towels, the maidservice was-what maidservice!? I had no towels, maid just […] made my bed once and no empty garbage or clean anything. Room smelled moldy and walls are too thin. I could hear everything in the hallway as well as the next room. BTW, this hotel has no room service, you have to pay a $200.00 security fee to get into your room (I suggest you leave cash so you can get it back quicker as opposed to a credit card). Also, upon checking in you will be given an actual door key not the regular swipe card key. If you loose that you have to pay $150.00 because they can't "deactivate" that key. The corner of this hotel is situated on the alley way so all night you will hear crazy noises. The bed was super uncomfortable and when I asked for another pillow, I was given an accent couch pillow- they told me they don't have any more pillows. My review, save your mind and not stay here period. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Kind of a dump but cheap if you're on a budget"
They refused to let us check in early and did not offer any good guest service. The lobby bathrooms were so gross and dirty that I held in my pee for 3 hours. When I told them about the bathrooms the girl at the front desk said "that's because we share them with the restaurant" and she didn't care. So gross. The only reason this place is getting two […] stars is because it was cheap, right on the beach in a great location and the actual room was fairly clean. Would I stay here again? If I had no other options, yes. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location by the beach. Room was clean daily. Maybe then can serve breakfast soon. However I think the deposit for the security was too high $200 dollars. My stay there was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend get away"
We were down October 4th thru 6th 2013, The hotel location is great that being said everything else was absolutely terrible. The room was over a very noisy night club could not sleep had to change rooms@3 in the morning, people coming in from off the street using their rest rooms. The walls are paper thin you can hear a loud part going on next door […] had to call front desk to get them to quite down @4 in the morning. Just a bad place to stay zero comfort. Good location but terrible hotel... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap hotel on the beach"
Booked a quick trip to Miami for a couple days with my husband. I picked this hotel because it looked nice enough and the price was fair. The best part about the hotel was the air conditioning- it works wonderfully! It was so cold we actually had to close our vent, which is amazing for south Florida! The worst part about the room was the shower. There's […] no door or curtain on the bathtub- there's like a half glass wall thing that cannot be moved- which is very inconvenient since the hot water in the shower doesn't work very well/ so you kind of just stand there freezing while you try and shower. The faucet in the shower is very strange- there's no real instructions and you have to turn and pull in order to attempt to get any warm water.. It's very strange.. My husband actually called the front desk because we assumed it was broken. Our room wasn't very clean when we first checked in- the toilet had been running (we had to jiggle the handle after every use) so there was toilet water on the floor and on the seat. There was also an extra blanket in a bag inside the closet- we took this out the first night since it was freezing in the room but the blanket smelled awful! It smelled Like a dirty dog- it obviously had not been washed- that was pretty gross. The bed also had a dip in it- so you would kinda just roll down into the middle. This hot Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff sucks. I arrived from CA at 1 pm on a Wed. I was told checkin was not till 3pm. No way was this dump full. I asked if she could be flexiable. She wanted an extra $ 50.00 for checking In early. They will want a $ 200.00 deposit. If you use a credit card for it I will take a week or ten days for them to credit you. I paid the room in full online. […] The gal at the front desk wanted another $ 62.00.Don't walk RUN from this dump. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Do not stay ocean side 2nd floor"
I thought the choice of the hotel to put us ocenside on 2nd floor was nice when we arrived. Little did we know until 1am that this decision had to be based on the fact we booked online and they could put us where they wanted. As at aroundf 1am or so the musoic started and it felt like we were sitting right in front of concert speakers. This lasted till […] 6am. We will never stay at this place again and recomend if you stay on Ocean Ave. Ask for the top floor and back of the building. That is unless you plan on staying out until 6am.
