If you're thinking about staying here, it's probably a better idea to just pitch a tent in the middle of Collins Ave and take your chances. We booked a room at the Continental for a girls weekend in Miami, fully realizing that when you're on South Beach you won't be staying in the room much anyway so it just needs... More

If you guys a looking for a perfect location, a cheap place to stay and the beach is right in your back yard then this is the place. If you're looking for luxury this is not it!

Every time I ride behind this hotel I wonder how anyone would be scammed into staying in what appears to be an old third world hotel. No landscaping at all and a lawn full of weeds in the pool area. An discombobulated... More

The Continental Oceanfront Hotel South Beach will allow their workers to KEY IN your account information without every swiping or seeing the actual credit card. I received fradualent charges on my bank account. Called the hotel, they "can't" find the transaction. Beware!!!

We had a queen size bed turned side ways advertised as a king size bed ( My husband is 6'3") There are 2 very old elevators and only one of them is... More
