This place is a JOKE! Awful. No way this is a 4 star hotel. Room was filthy; You can't shut the the curtains because they have wood blinds...which allows the HUGE flood lights outside the window to blast brightness into the room all night; someone was smoking across the hall and staff would do nothing about it. They were rude... More

Daddy O Hotel reviews are REAL guests that have stayed with us, tripadvisor does not allow fake reviews to be posted on their site. The hotel is a non-smoking facility and any guest that are caught smoking in our rooms incur a $250 smoke cleaning fee and are advised of our smoking section which is on the outside of the... More

Really unique decor, the place is beautiful and the staff are cool. The Daddy O Hotel is perfect for couples on a romantic getaway, the hotel is cozy and the rooms are spacious and new. Great beds, bath, furniture. Breakfast was free and satisfying. 9/10.

We've been for nine days in Miami staying at Daddy O Hotel. This hotel is great, the ambience of this old building is nice and the location too - the sea is very close, there are many shops whithin walking distance and, if you have little children, you can reach several playgrounds by foot. The rooms are clean and you... More

This was our second stay at this hotel. It has a cute, homey, but upscale feel. The mattress was so comfortable that I called back the next week to get the brand. The free breakfast is nicer than most hotels - the coffee is gound to order. I absentmindly left my purse in the lobby restroom, and it was retrieved... More

From the moment I stepped foot into daddy o hotel, I knew I found the haven that my heavy heart was searching for.

This boutique hotel was perfect for us. I like the fact it was NOT in S. Beach/Ocean drive, but very accessible (10 min cab ride or less) It was in a quiet neighborhood and within walking distance to the beach. When my husband and I return to Miami, we will nit think twice and stay here
