The hotel is right in the middle of the south beach strip. I booked through Groupon, please note there is additional charges of $15 per night stay and the valet parking is $35. The room was spacious. I would stay in this hotel again.

Booked this through Groupon. I got the queen bed room in error. Was upgraded to junior suite with no questions asked. Yulima at the front desk was WONDERFUL. She was extremely nice and helped in many ways. The room was big, clean and nice. The bed was very comfortable. The music played until 12am but I didn't expect less since... More

We stayed this past weekend after purchasing a groupon but then upgraded to the penthouse for my husband's bday. We got to the hotel 30mins before check in & the cleaning lady had not even started our room cause she thought it would be easier to wait for the linens that were late. NOPE!! We finally got into our room... More

The room was very nice and modern, but the blind was broken which I had to spend 15minutes fixing on the first night and the safe didn't work (they did fix it the next day). Unfortunately there was a significant amount of noise at night. There was very loud music played right outside our room in the courtyard until past... More

This was my first time staying at hotel ocean. I got a great deal on bookit.com so I figured I would try. I usually stay at the same hotel everytime I go to south beach. Anyway the staff was very friendly and helpful my room was clean. The only flaw was there was live music right outside of my room... More

Perfect location, very nice and helpful staff. Free cookies, tee and coffee available at the reception. the only thing is that breakfest might have been a bit more diversed. Surely worth visiting if you want to fully enjoy South Beach!

Hubby and I stayed at this hotel on our first trip to Miami back in 2003. The hotel was very very clean, the staff was excellent, the location was perfect for us. We would definitely stay here again. We loved being able to hear the latin music from near by clubs as well. We stayed here a few days before... More
