This was my third stay at the Sea View. Although it doesn't have the glitz of the ultra-modern hotels in mid-Miami Beach, and the Art Deco hotels in South Beach, it offers a quiet atmosphere that suits me just fine. The staff is very nice and helpful, and the restaurant offers a varied menu. I'd like to thank Ricardo and... More

This grande dame of a hotel doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is: small town on a swanky strip of Miami. I've stayed here a few times, and already know what to expect: friendly staff, dated but charming, patriotic decor, large CLEAN rooms, old yet nice washrooms. It's like staying at a dated Connecticut inn that caters... More

I was amazed at many of the previous reviews for this hotel? Yes it's in a quiet area surrounded by newer and bigger apartment blocks, but there are shops services and restaurants within easy walking distance and you can travel by bus as far as you like for little more than two dollars. Admittedly our initial impression wasn't good. We... More

They really spruced things up since I last stayed here. The lobby is now very attractive, the rooms have been redone, the service is very good. I definitely recommend as a great antidote to the crazed atmosphere of South Beach. The Sea View feels like you are stepping back in time (in a good way!) to what the Miami Beaches... More
