I stayed in this hotel for a couple of days, the location of the hotel is perfect, one block away from ocean drive. Everything else is bad, rooms, service, security, dirty. You get what you paid for in this hotel. If your on a budget and dont have any other option stay, but if you have other options dont stay... More

Well where do i start. Island house seemed ok for a group of 4. A couple and two friends in separate rooms. We arrived and learnt it was a dump. Everything is rundown. The floors, walls and beds are all rubbish. The reason i am compelled to write this review is because of an incident that occurred while staying here.... More

Great location, one block from ocean drive. Loved the continental breakfast and how late it is open, a great cushion for the late nights. Also loved the front porch, our best nights were spent drinking and making friends just hanging out. The beds however had stains upon arrival, dont know if they just weren't cleaned or were literally stained but... More

One of the only places in South Beach to not charge a resort fee, I was happily suprised that Island House was a pretty decent place to stay. Of course if you're looking for ritzy amenities you best stay elsewhere; but to be situated within walking distance of the beach and restaurants/bars, I myself will definitely return next time I...

This hotel is close to the beach and there are many restaurants near this hotel. The staff are not always at the desk and a lot of the time sleeping and when you do catch one there or awake it isn't always a good thing. Not very helpful and they act like you are putting them out. It is an... More

This hotel needs to be renovated badly. If you want to transport yourself back into late fifties and enjoy painted bathtub, oil stained carpets, plastic chairs etc.. do it. There are several choices on Collins Ave with in similar price range for you to consider. I used booking site to select this purely on price. I checked in around 10... More
