The Penguin Hotel, Miami Beach
Just okay pricey watch for resort fees no pool
Water was turned off when we arrived. Free breakfast only after 7:30 we left before due to early flight. Recd Late wake up call. Welcome drink was just okay... convenient area to beach and dining

Great little hotel in the heart of South Beach.

Great night in South Beach
One night in South Beach before heading on to the Keys. The hotel is charming and the staff is very nice. Great location. We liked being towards the end of the strip in front of the park. Not as much foot traffic towards the end.

Very Good8.0
Great value hotel in high rent district
Very nice place to stay...for the money. Not a fancy hotel, but very clean with helpful staff and what you get is location, location, location at a relatively affordable price. A great value hole...just do not expect many frills. There are some frills such as a daily complementary continental breakfast, welcome drinks, and complementary water bottles each day.
