"Not happy w this hotel"
Hotel under renovation:( poor service would not go back at allGenuine Expedia guest review
"DON'T STAY HERE!"
My girlfriend and I had driven from Key West and arrived late in the evening at hotel. I had to park illegally a block away and walk to hotel, because the lobby parking lot was coned off. Walking in there, you smell dust and see dirt everywhere. There is no AC in the lobby. The floor that we were assigned to (3rd) had dirty and grime everywhere. This […] is a horribly managed remodeled job. I am in the construction industry, and you always leave a pristine area where you have guests, and work in other areas. We took pics that show walls seperating and horrible paint jobs. What an unbelieveable mess up on management's part. I hope they realize that we will never be back there again. I hope no one else goes there. Don't want your money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"BEWARE THE HOTEL IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION"
Hotel looks like it's in a war zone, under construction the only good thing there is the staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not until the end of renovations."
Because I was informed of the current status of the property due to ongoing renovation projects, it was actually better than the worst I expected. I think I paid for more that the quality of the accommodation but it was ok overall for its convenient location. Whoever purchased the building acquired the right real estate but sheould not keep rooms operating […] during the construction for many safety reasons. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worst Hotel in USA"
This was by far, the worst hotel I've stayed in, in the United States. It was filthy. Completely dirty. No working electrical units. Phone didn't work. Is undergoing a well needed renovation, though they should probably just demo it and start all over again as this hotel was a hot mess!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
First to start off we called the hotel prior to booking to ask how much parking costs we were told by the receptionist it's $25 a day. When we arrived at the hotel the receptionist says they don't even have parking! The hotel has construction all over the place and should not even be open. Rooms are extremely outdated,walls had mold,you can hear all […] the conversations from the next room. When we arrived the cable was out. You would think the manager who checked us in would let us know at check-in. When I called the front desk she pretty much didnt care. We checked out next morning.

"Whole hotel under construction"
The hotel is under construction and it smells like it all over it. All the walls look like "under construction". The tv cable is so poor you barely see what you are watching. They should not be selling the rooms until they are done with this construction, it was very dissapointing. The views are not at all to the beach but to another very close building's […] windows. The beds are a hundred years old. The room was dusty. I didn't want to touch anything, it seemed so dirty! The staff was really nice but I would not go back or recommend it to anyone until they have it under proper conditions. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location bad atention"
Hotel under construction, not to much people in there, no pool available, no direct access to the beach, the should say that the hotel is being repairedGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel smelled like mold. The appearance is nothing like the photo. The rooms was disgusting bathroom water was dirty didn't even use there sheets to sleep used our towels that we purchased at the gift store.. Would never go back. Lastly the key for my room didn't work had to go back to front desk to help open the door. TerribleGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel was under construction"
I stayed with my family for a week. Many days the hotel didn't have water because the hotel is under construction so its a big mess. The elevators got stuck several times. Also they advertised that the hotel has a pool, however the pool was also under construction. My advice is don't book this hotel pay a little extra and get a better hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel shouldnt even be listed on hotels.com due to the fact they are under major renovations. Had no idea this was the case when I booked the room for the one night stay. The cab driver wouldnt even drop us until he went inside and verified it was actually an operating business. Do not stay here. Pictures are deceiving.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The worst hotel I've ever stayed in by far!"
Absolutely horrible! The hotel looked like a demolition site. It did not even look open. When we first got there, the entrance was blocked off and there was like a dumpster there and all this construction material because I believe they were doing a renovation. No one was behind the desk when got there and we had to look around and call out for someone […] to help us. The room was sweltering hot and the air conditioner was not working. The room just looked old and outdated. They had an old outdated tv as well that did not even have an air conditioner. At one point, my girlfriend and I wanted to take showers and there was no running water at all. We had to go and complain to staff downstairs and then they turned it back on like 20 minutes later. And when the water was turned on, it was brown in color and stained the floor of the tub! Lastly, as we were checking out, we parked our car in the round driveway in front of the hotel so we can easily put out luggages and suitcases into the car and when we went back upstairs the employee behind the desk called a tow truck to come tow our vehicle, even though I told him we were checking out. It was just a horrible experience. I would not advise anyone who loves themself to stay there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was locate in an excellent location but was under construction, it was dirty, and very hard to accomodate little thing such as checking in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for!"
The hotel is under what appears to be very slow renovation. This fact was not disclosed in the Expedia profile of the hotel. The pool area is abysmal and the hotel while in a good section of SOBE is sorely in need of serious upgrading.Genuine Expedia guest review
"some positives, a lot of negatives."
lets start with the positives; the beds were relatively clean, great air conditioning and water temperature, quick and easy check in, AMAZING location and great price. and now to the rest; the whole hotel smells like smoke so bad, seriously. its dreadful. rooms are extremely outdated, our view was off a concrete floor onto which people had thrown their […] garbage, the hotel pool is AWFUL; it looks extremely unhealthy, and the vomit that was next to it for the duration of our stay (5 days) did not help matters. overall, only come here to sleep, and for a maximum of two nights. it actually starts to depress you after a while.

"exelent location. good price"
The hotel is in exelent location and the price is very good. If you are a person that only need a place to take a shower and sleep. You should stay here . Isn't a 5 star hotel but is ok. You can get a better hotel but you will to pay more.that means less money to spend in your trippGenuine Expedia guest review
"2 stars is all its worth!"
the overall experience was not horrible, but the parking situation was ridiculous. I got charged $100 to park my car at the most convenient place possible because the hotel had no valet or no parking. The room was cozy for what you are paying for, it isn't the W Hotel or Fountain Blue.Genuine Expedia guest review
I booked the hotel for 3 day we only stay the first night, the hotel was dirty, it smelled like weed and cogaretts even thought it was a none smoking, we could hear the people from the next room and smell the weed, I was there with my kids and the next morning we woke up with the noise off construction, and we got up and booked another hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"best place and service money can buy in the heart"
after reading previous reviews, I was rather anxious when I first checked in. later I saw that the hotel and the services provided were more than I expected. what you pay is worth it, believe me.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Convenient hotel for small budget"
I was satisfied with the location, the pool, the access to the beach and the conditions in my room, but I was not happy with the TV service (defficient), the elevator service (only one working), and the poor advisement at front desk regarding parking and breakfast options. The bar at the lobby was shut down, not sure if it had to do with the remodeling […] of some areas. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worst stay ever!"
The Continental Hotel should be closed down until all renovations and construction is done. One elevator is completely out of service and the other one works when it wants to and sometimes it won't stop on certain floors.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"THE WHOLE PLACE WAS A MESS"
half the hotel was under much-needed refurbishment. Only one elevator worked, and the workmen seemed be taking everything in and out through the one public elevator. The corridor smelt of drugs, the hot tap in my bathroom didn't work, the ice machine on my floor didn't work, the air-con wasn't chilled, it just circulated the same air, and the pool was […] dirty.

"The worst hotel of all."
Do not go to this hotel, it is the worst I have seen till now.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we entered the room the towels were wet. The pool area was not cleaned with cigarette butts and gargabe allover. the hotel needs an extreme makeover.The staff tried to be helpful and told me the hotel was a 1 rating. thats why we got the service we got.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"NEVER AGAIN! Not even for a nap."
HORRIBLE. Should really be shut down by health inspectors. They tried to put me in a room that was damp with the odor of mildew hanging outside of the room. You have to ask for wash clothes as they do not give any out. Thank goodness I travel with my own towels and clothes. Having that hotel on the strip like that is a diservice to that area. They need […] to have a meeting and get it together. NEVER AGAIN, not even just to take a nap. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Horrible. !!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location was great. Disappointed they advertised valet for $30 but was not available. Had only one towel in room and difficult to get more. But I had city view on third floor and sunset was superb.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Almost get less than you pay for, great location."
Hotel was very old fashioned, no renovations at all and very, very plain. Room had a musty odor, and at one point I was left without towels, and had to wait one and a half hours for housekeeping to bring them. That being said, the price is very good, so you should know that you're getting a little less than you are paying for, and not expect anything […] too nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was the worst hotel I ever stay! Everything is bad expect location but there are a lot of other hotels around! So never go there!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location but need renovation"
This hotel has great location with access to the beach. The staff were nice. In terms of cleanliness, if one can look beyond the old and stale smell carpeting, it was actually ok. No wi-fi in the room, we had to go to the main hall in front of the receptionist for internet connection. The overall ambience of this hotel looked gloomy. I am sure repainting […] and replacing the carpet flooring as well as some change in lighting will make a different ambience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A 0 star hotel"
This place is just horrible ......in other words this is worst than a motel ..... I guess this is for ... I can't say but. It is just an awful experience.....Genuine Expedia guest review

"Horrible 2 days"
Def it wasn't the best choice .. The cleanness , the hotel codintion, the pool, the room were very poor. We weren't a happy customersGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant stay overall"
Hotel was decent, got your money's worth. Friendly staff too. Big downside was that the site listed valet parking for $30.00 which is decent for that location but the hotel DOES NOT offer valet. However, there is a garage 2 blocks down where overnight parking is $38.00.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location Terrible looking hotel"
This hotel needs someone who is willing to spend some money in a big renovation. I asked for a iron and a ironing table and I just got a filthy iron a day too late.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Im warning u....Do not stay here!!"
First the front desk is not helpful at all. When you ask to get extra towels for the showers they are very reluctant to do so. And they don't even have face or hand towels for you. And if you plan to arrive early before check in and you want to drop off your bags before so at least you can go to the beach or walk around until your room is ready they […] make you pay per bag! Next if you plan on driving your car or renting one for your stay they do not even have a parking for their guest. They tell you to park in a parking deck 3 blocks away for $30 a day! Last it would be nice if they updated the rugs, beds, hallways because it looks like it has not been changed since the 80s. All in all you get what you pay for. Please take my advice and don't stay here. If there was a good thing about this hotel it is the location. Close walking distance to everything on South Beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Value hovel in prime location."
For the price, given the location, the value is amazing. That said, the place is a dump. Know that going in and appreciate being right on the beach in the center of everything in South Beach. There are zero amenities. The lobby is beyond dreary. There likely has not been a renovation since Nixon was President. You likely won't have REAL problems with […] the place; it just looks worse than it is. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Inexpensive beachfront hotel"
Inexpensive hotel near everything. Pool was nice. Old looking unrenovated hotel. Good place to sleep the little time u will be in room in SoBeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Falsely Advertised and Aweful!!"
This hotel was advertised as a well located beach front hotel, with the normal amenities of a similar discount or inexpensive hotel chain. The rooms were in terrible disrepair, the elevators were shoty, and the pool and property was atrocious. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Continental Hotel Miami Beach Rating"
The TV's were very old, not working, the service was slow, the furniture was old, mold in the walls.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for College Students"
A nice hotel for young people. I stayed there while on a business trip and it wasn't up to par with my usual standards but it's very affordable and fine for the younger college student crowd.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spring Break Review"
the continental was not what I was expecting. our air didnt work, our hot water didn't work, there were only 4 channels, our view sucked, & it doesn't look like the picture. the outside looks the best. I wouldn't stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"the worst hotel i've ever been"
dirty, uncomfortable, windows haven't been cleaned for years, water is leaking from all sides in the bathroom.. don't go thereGenuine Expedia guest review
I stayed for a week and I was never given washclothes so we had to purchase our own. The Walsh are very thin and you can hear everything. The pool was dirty and filled with leaves. The staff did not speak English, and weren't helpful. The light broke the tiler didn't flush right and over flooded. There were ants all over the sink. Horrible experience.

"RUN!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS DUMP...."
This hotel is awful. There were no towels or wash cloths in the room when I checked in. I took them 2 hours for towels and 6 hours for wash cloths. The air in the room was not working. The lienes were old. The furniture was outdated. I was mold around the lamps. The carpet is was bad. The only good thing about this hotel was is there address. Please […] don't waste your money. I know that it is a two star but really it shouldn't even have a rating it shouldn't be open. I was HIGHLY upset. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not as bad as others but the AC didnt work. They offered to let us switch but it was already late and all of our stuff was unpackedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only if the price is really right.."
Pros : Location is very good on Collins Ave, close to Hotel has its own beach entrance. Price was acceptable. Rooms are pretty large, closet space and safe is available. Clean sheets and towels were available daily. A mini refrigerator available in the room. Cons : Old hotel. I mean OLD It needs major renovation. Bed was not comfortable, probably the […] cheapest bed in market. You can see the wear and tear everywhere, on elevators, doors, walls, on cheap furniture in the room etc. Windows were not clean, pool area was like the backyard of an abandoned building. You cannot even purchase coffee in the hotel, that kind of services are not available. The toilet seat is almost next to the wall, which is absolutely awkward, as you have to use the toilet with an angle. Verdict : Would I stay again ? If the price is right, I would. Do not expect much from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"If you want to get ripped off-Here's the place"
The guy receptionist was rude and not helpful at all. Our toilet was not working and when we told him he brushed us off and did nothing about it. He charged us an extra $25 dollars to let us in a dirty room one hour before check in. I have stayed before at this hotel and it always sucked but it was the cheapest rates at the time but forget that I would […] rather pay more and have a clean room thats has a working toilet.
