Stayed here in September, it's about half an hour by bus to south beach, there was literally 10 guests in the hotel and they still wanted to charge us $10 for a chair at the pool. Crazy as there was no one besides staff at the pool. On our last morning our toilet over flowed and water went everywhere (disgusting)... More

found a deal through HotelTravel.com via Trip Advisor. Using HotelTravel.com made me nervous because the deal was too good and they charged my card up front. I called the Hotel to ask questions and confirm the reservation. A very elderly sounding woman answered and she was difficult to understand so I was initial uneasy about this place. Upon arrival everything... More

Our group of 10 booked this hotel during August 2014. We are all aged between 24-27. Upon arrival we all booked in separately in couple order. After the first two couples booked in we overheard staff offer upgrade rooms to the rest of the group. When we asked why the first two couples had not been upgraded they said they... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel is in a huge need of a renovation. The rooms are very outdated and the bathrooms are probably from the 80's. Do not put your clothes in the walk in closet, they smell terrible after hanging there. Service is poor as well, the staff are in need of customer service training and a... More

We stayed at the Sea.View for one night in May. I had a voucher for a room for under $200, which seemed to be the reason why i was offered a room just over the entrance on the second floor. It was a smoking floor, and when I tried to change the room, I was told there were no rooms... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel. Everything you would expect from a top class hotel in this location. The rooms are spacious and the upholstery is nice but again maybe just a little outdated. The bathrooms are rather small compared to other hotels in the US. If you like having rules then this hotel is perfect! Pool area cost... More

Crowded out by more modern and larger hotels, the Seaview stands as a proud reminder of a bygone deco era. Much larger in size than those smaller hotel on south beach and angled for views, the building has a dramatic presence while approaching. Unfortunately, the grandeur of the exterior architecture is absent from the interior where a more formal, traditional... More

I just came back from this very nice hotel. Located in Bal Harbour, across from the shops and far from the crowds at South Beach, but easily accessible by bus if you don't have/or rent a car. Also, a great price which included a Continental breakfast. I'd definitely stay here again. It's half-way between Miami International and Ft. Lauderdale, so... More

This is my first time at this hotel. Well, doesn't exactly look like the online photos. Front desk staff and valet were very friendly. I upgraded my room to a higher floor and the room was very nice. My only real concern is when my son and I sat on a lounger by the pool we were told we had... More
