I really liked this place for the money. It is a hip little place that is clean and simple. No real amenities but a good deal for the money. The rooms are new, clean, and comfortable. My room was small, water pressure was not great but it served it purpose very well. It is a little walk to a great... More

I booked an accessible room as I use a wheelchair. Positives - the bathroom was large and the toilet had bars on one side and behind it. The shower was a roll-in shower and there were bars and a hand-held faucet. You could roll-up under the sink, but it was too high to use sitting in a wheelchair. Staff was... More

I do a lot of traveling during a year for work, vacation and I do my research before booking a Hotel. I had to admit , critics were mixed for this hotel, but I took a chance. Because I wanted to be a little outside South Beach , for a more quiet time, since it was the ULTRA music festival.... More

The hotel itself was nice with nice friendly staff. We just returned from a 3 day stay 03/2014. Rooms were nicely decorated though small and noise could be heard from surrounding rooms. The location, ,however, was the bomb. Two excellent Italian restaurants right around the corner and the beautiful super expensive Bal Harbor shops were within walking distance. Overall, a... More

For a relaxing, short break in Miami, Daddy O is a good choice. Tucked away in the quiet Bay Harbor district, it's walking distance from amenities (including a great Italian restaurant around the corner), quiet beaches and bus routes. The rooms are spotless and very well-equipped, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly and it's excellent value for money. Lobby... More

It was definitely a nice stay. The rooms were kinda small though, but everything else was okay. The walls are pretty thin, you can literally hear everything from the neighbors rooms. Staff is friendly, but sometime too relaxed and "fun". Breakfast was nothing special and parking is $12 a night (you could park on street and use the metered spots... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Daddy O Hotel in February. It was the best hotel we stayed at during a weeks vacation in Miami. Wish we had found it on our first day! Excellent service, spotlessly clean. In a nice location with restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Keep it up guys.
