"Nice location, cheap parking on the street"
Had a hot deal $67, great location. Night life of Miami Beach is right thereGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beach Paradise, real paradise"
Location of hotel is perfect, room was also really great... i liked everything except AC. There should be thermometer in every room becouse it was cooling like crazy even when there was no need for it, but everything else was perfect. I recommend this hotel, price is ok considering location you get.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great location $32 to park per night"
not bad hotel to flop at. Only have valet parking for $32 a night Great location . clean but super cold with central air.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't trust the picture's"
Don't waste your time. This place looked nothing like the picture's. The staff was rude & the air conditioning doesn't work I the lobby. The location was great, however the hotel itself is not worth the money we paid.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a friendly staff"
The girl at the check in counter was more interested in texting than checking me in, so I said "hello" to get her attention, then it was a "I will be with you when ready". Following that I never heard one word from any staff. I was in and out for 2 days and not even a hello in passing. First night no AC had to keep the door open just to get a bit cool […] from the hall. Second night it was fixed and no way to control the temp and we froze. Location is really nice, that made it bearable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"First Trip to Miami"
The hotel was nice and clean. It was right in the heart of everything. That was the best part. If you are looking for a place just to sleep and change cloths this is the place for you. Looking for something more upscale then this is not the place for you.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beach paradise? Yeah right!"
The hotel is old and musty smelling. There was mold in the bathroom and air vents. Housekeeping was terrible . The front desk staff was rude and unprofessional. Plus , the air was out in the lobby and first floor. Do not stay here!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything bad except the location"
There is nothing like room service. No one picks up the phone. The lock of the washroom door was broken. The safe would not work. You cannot control the temperature of your room. The only good thing is the location of the hotel. Take this hotel only if you plan to spend minimum time in the hotel room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Paradise from HELL!"
From the start to the end this is absolutely the worse hotel ever. It should be torn down. When we arrived at 2:00 pm we were notified that hotel has no parking. We had to pay $30 per night. The steaming lobby has no AC. The rooms have no AC controls. Therefore we spent the night freezing. The little tv is very old fashion. The bathrooms have broken […] tubs and syncs. The covers had holes not sure how they got there. There was a piece of shewed gum on the window sills. The elevator looks like something from a movie in the forties. When we finally left we had ro wait outside under the burning sun for atleast 1/2 hour. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Unfriendly staff and worse room."
Air conditioning didn't work. Extremely overheatedGenuine Expedia guest review
It was a great room wasnt super fancy but clean nice and close to everything. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel close to the beach."
The hotel is near very good restaurants and shopping ( like Dash) , but the noise was very loud and hard to sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"So close to the beach!"
Beach Paradise is so close to the beach! All you have to do is cross Ocean drive and you're there. If you're looking for a fancy, upscale, 5 star resort...KEEP LOOKING! Beach Paradise is in a wonderful location but not does have all the "glitz and glam" that other south beach hotels have. I would definitely stay here again because it was affordable […] and in the BEST location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"If you simply need a place to sleep."
The hotel is far from luxurious, but if you simply need a place to lay your head for the night after a night out, or before heading to the beach, then it will work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location but was very basic. Worth the convenience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst Hotel in the entire USA"
Be aware of this hotel. Staff is terrible, can barely speak English. A/C doesn't work. Lobby was 100F. Bugs everywhere. Ridiculous $200 deposit for one night stay. I asked for a receipt and the front desk wrote down in a piece of paper, when I complain he told me "sue the hotel". This hotel is a JOKE.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location is great. It's right on the beach and also walking distance to some great bars. The staff was mediocre but not terrible. The room was small and basic but clean. The way the entrance and lobby are set up makes this hotel a great example of art deco architecture, like many other neighboring hotels. The lobby has a small breakfast bar that […] opens up to the street and a piano in the middle of the room. I'm sure it is not used often but it adds a nice touch.

"You get what you pay for"
Thought the $200 security deposit was a little ridiculous. $200 could buy you everything they had in the room. Was taken back when they said that. Read the fine print before booking!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Classic Art Deco Hotel in South Beach Miami"
We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed the central location at the Ocean Drive. The hotel is surrounded by bars and restaurants, the beach can be accessed by crossing the road. We had a nice junior suite on the 3rd floor and could overlook the road as well as the beach. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall it was a very nice and convenient place for […] our Miami South Beach holiday week. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the money"
Yes the lobby and stairs are not grand. However the room was very clean decorated very trendy and the location was perfect. For the price you pay makes it worth it to stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location THATS IT!!"
First checked in I was given one room and I booked two. That was solved but me and my friends were on two different sides of the hotel cause they gave one room away. Then my friend lost his room key (actual key not a card). I was charged $50. Which should have been waived since they gave my room away. Staff was friendly. Great location this is the only […] thing special about this hotel. Room smelled like mildew and can't control AC. Oh and we ran out of cups that was in the room and was told 50 cent per cup if we want more. They do provide beach towels and have a small fridge in the room. Also have a ice machine. Could be better if they did upgrades. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"If your looking for a cheap stay"
Low budget hotel, lobby of hotel has no ac and is extremely hot, but hallways were well conditioned . Room is old fashioned and not the most up to date as well as clean with cracks in the sink and tub a little old , walls had black scrapes on it. You get what you pay for! Great location though!Genuine Expedia guest review
I stayed at Beach Paradise for 4 days. When we arrived we checked in and was given our room keys for the 3rd floor. The elevator only went to the second floor. We had to carry out luggage up the other two flights of stairs. Two days into our vacation the air went out in our room. They moved us to another room, guess what ? That air was out to. They […] bought us a fan. Can you say very upset off. The hotel is in a great location, but is very old. I would not recommen this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Worse hotel I have ever stayed in."
The hotel was nasty pillows had stains on them i litterally slept on my own clothing there were bugs in the bathroom we couldn't control the air conditioning it was only cool on the 2nd floor in the hallway and it smelled I wouldn't dare recommend anyone to stay there it was horrible. Oh yeah and not to mention they tried to say they couldn't refund […] us our money right then because it was a holiday what kind of crazy is that I went off in there and I bet they got the money right away people just be careful the looks on the Internet is nothing like the actual room.

"It was close to the beach"
Thumbs down! Dirty before and after the cleaning lady left the elevator only work to the 2nd floor, not please never again. I could go on and on not like the internet portrayed it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel right across from beach"
Very nice. Staff was warm and helpful. Only problem was broken elevatorGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach"
I would not stay at this hotel ever again. I stayed here for one night as a last minute resort. My room was on the 3rd floor, however the extremely HOT elevator only goes to the 2nd floor. The walls are so thin I could hear people in the next room. I also over heard a guest ask for towels and the maid tell him she wouldn't have more for another 20 minutes. […] I had to pull the bed away from the wall in order to plug in the clock and lamp. The fridge was plugged in, however it did not work. I can't think of anything positive to say about this hotel other than the location is great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great location and the room was nice! For what we paid it was greatGenuine Expedia guest review
The worst experience! Stuff not professional and rude . Rooms are not clean and uncomfortable. They don't have AC in the lobby . Real ghetto !!Genuine Expedia guest review
"no a/c in room or hall and hotel could not care"
very dirty a/c did not work and they did not care no a/c this time of year in Miami not goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I couldn't imagine staying at this hotel for more than 1 night. If they spent a free dollars for updates furniture I could stay 2 night. They also need to heavy clean, base boards were filthy, shower was heavily stained.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I'm a business woman (CEO ACCOUNTANT in WI) who was celebrating my 45th bday. I pick this hotel due to th website pictures. The website pictures is not particularly what you are getting. I assuming I was in th older part of th building due to catching th old evelator to th 2nd floor & walking up th stairs to th 3rd floor. I paid $277.00 per night for […] 3 nights($831 plus $10 per day for extra person) & a $200.00 credit card holding fee in which you don't know about until you get there. Also th tv was a 19" old box tv with th large back. I can say th sheets was white (perfer) & th room was clean & th Miami Heat game and arena was great. In all my standard preference is higher therefore I give this hotel a 2 star. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great, right on the beach in the middle of all the Miami action. The staff, especially at the front desk, was very slow and rude. I would approach the desk and it wasn't for another 5 minutes that they would acknowledge me. This happened on multiple occasions. The rooms were decent however the floors were not swept before we arrived […] so there was sand all over the ground and the lights were super dim so you could not see anything at night when trying to get ready to go out.

I read the reviews but is still wanted to give it a chance. Worse mistake ever !!! This hotel needs to be upgraded ASAPGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't do it"
The hotel doesn't look anything on the website! The restroom was horrible.Genuine Expedia guest review
Unlikely I will ever stay here again. The hotel location was perfect and the room was clean enough, but I could not find the temperature control so my room was freezing and the elevator was broken so I was forced to take the staircase from the 2nd to 3rd fl, something I was not crazy about at 4AM. However, what bothered me the most was that the money […] taken from me as a deposit for any extra charges incurred was promised to be back into my account by Monday morning (I stayed there Saturday night for 1 night), and was not back into my account till today, Thursday. When I called to complain about it on Monday the person who answered tried to make it like I misunderstood. I did not. I was lied to and don't appreciate that when it comes to a business transaction. Plenty of places to stay in South Beach, and in the future I am more likely to look for a place where the employees will be straightforward with me rather than tell me stories.

"A vacation stay during a work week"
I came to this hotel during a two week period that I was on a business assignment in downtown Miami. A quick 15 minute cab ride brings me to and from work everyday. When I return from work, I would grab a bite at one of the many seafood oriented resturants all along Ocean Drive. After dinner, I would either have a cigar on the beach at night across […] from the hotel (where you can walk freely until 12 PM, and where no one will bother you. Other nights I would enjoy a mojito and a cigar either with dinner or after dinner at one of the resturants, mostly CJs Crab Shak, which is part of the hotel. I met the owner of CJs (CJ himself) and he was very friendly and most accomodating. While a person on vacation might be tempted to say that the hotel is not as good as other hotels in South Beach, for $126 a night, and for someone who is really here on business, this hotel is in fact a beach paradise. I would recommend it to similiar business travelers looking for a get away at night and for students vacationing on a low budget. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great for partying"
good place to party, perfect locale. elevator is scary but who cares, its only 3 floors. better deal than Starlite aand San Juan and other gully hotels on the strip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not what I expected"
Honestly I realized when I arrived to the hotel why my friends and I spent money for this hotel all I can say is location. The hotel was not as pictured in person. The phone in my room and my friend's room did not work. My bed was worn out and uncomfortable. Not enough outlets in the room I recall two one by the door and one behind the bed which was […] a pest to move every time I had to utilize the sockets. Oh yea did I mention bed? My bed moved due to wheels that did not lock. Service was horrible had to go down to the front desk multiple times during my stay to ask for shower towels they did not replenish my room with. The elevator only goes to the 2nd floor. So you can imagine the struggle going up to the 3rd floor with luggage. I mean all in all I will not be staying there again if I am in miami. The location is perfect right on the strip but the hotel gets a thumbs down for me. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible hotel is great location."
The hotel was moldy, smelly, had paper thin walls, and no amenities. The location is excellent but the price was similar to much nicer hotels in the same area. I do not recommend this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I knew when booking this hotel it wasn't going to be the Ritz. I was only in South Beach for 2 nights and just needed a place to crash. However, I've stayed at motels that were better. Upon arrival, the lobby has faux leather sofas that are damaged...you can see the stuffing coming out. How much does it cost to replace your lobby chairs to be presentable […] to guests? But this isn't the worst of it. When checking in, I requested a beach view room but the clerk said none were available. As I was stepping onto the old elevator, the same clerk came on and said he would give me a beach view room for extra money. I said "no thank you" and from that point on I knew I was staying at a shady place. The hallway and room smelled of mold. The room numbers are literally a piece of paper taped to the door with scotch tape. The room was spacious and sort of clean but very dated. The water didn't get very hot so it was a cold shower with almost no pressure. The room decor was tacky and the other guests were even tackier. There was an instance where some drunk women knocked on my door asking to come in and use my bathroom and mirror. This went on for 5 minutes until a guy across the hall opened his door and they went into his room. This place is a little frightening and I was so uncomfortable sleeping at night. You could here people arguing outside.Thank God there were three locks on the door (I used all of them to make sure I was bolted in safely). Definitely not a place for children!

"1st time stay on Ocean Dr"
We absolutely loved our stay! We were loud, drunk & not one complaint! The other guest on the floor were just as loud and we enjoyed every minute of it! Only down fall is you have no control over the AC unit :( sometimes a bit hot! But overall we will definitely stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beach but no Paradise"
This hotel had everything I believed I would want in terms of location. I was highly mistaken! Upon arriving I saw the hotel signage, which was written in laminated computer paper above the doorway. At the desk I was greeted with "Check-in isn't until 3 and it's only 2:45 so please just wait!" No "Hello" or a care as to who I was. After checking in […] the man at the front desk took a while to even find my reservation in the computer and when he did he didn't even realize that the hotel was already paid for! Everything that had to be signed was hand written on computer paper rather than printed on letterhead from the printer behind him! My room was on the third floor and he told me that I would find the elevator on the second floor! After lugging my stuff up two flights of stairs I came to a steel door which wasn't labelled but behind was an elevator with a gate style door. After trying to get it to work I was just frustrated and exited only to see a sign (again laminated paper) that said "Elevator out of order!" Thanks again front desk! The room was freezing and with no temperature controls and when I contacted the front desk they told me to close the vent. This vent had been painted over hundreds of times so it wouldn't even budge! The concierge came upstairs on my second call and said that he couldn't do anything so I'd just have to deal with it! I dealt with it and became more stern and he finally decided to change my room! The second room was bigger and more accommodating! This one had a flat screen HD tv, headboards which were connected to the actual bed, and a shower door! The other room had a tube tv, headboards nailed to the wall behind the beds, and one positive... a mini fridge! But don't get to excited the a/c had no freon so it was stifiling in this room. So I guess your options a equal either sweat to death or freeze you decide! When it came to check out it became a whole other fiasco! They had no recollection of my $200 in cash deposit and fought with me Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
