I did not know what to expect from this adventure to South Beach. The hotel was nice and clean and the staff were very kind and accommodating ! I loved the location ...across from the beach . The front room was noisy because of the fabulous music going on But we switched to a back room and didn't hear a... More

We rented a "junior suite" -340. What a joke. The "suite" is an old, weirdly large single room with a bed tucked into the corner. The worst part is that the floor and walls are so out of level (I estimated at least a foot from high to low) that the doors all have to be cut into trapezoidal shapes... More

This hotel is overpriced with poor customer service. They want to be a fancy south beach hotel, but the place is a dump. The rooms need updating and are not clean. Tiles in the bathroom are falling off, curtains are dirty. The first room we stayed in was loud with music from the restaurant downstairs. It stops late night, but... More

We reserved a room for two nights and upon arrival we were informed that we had received a free upgrade to an ocean view room. Upon entry into the room we noticed that the entire floor in the room had a greasy film all over it.We soon realized that this was not really a desired room at all since it... More

The hotel is in a great location on Miami Beach but the best part of my stay there were the staff who are all absolutely amazing. Very courteous and nice as well as being helpful with everything we needed. My only complaint would be that the rooms need to be updated.

The location was excellent right on Ocean Drive, only five minutes walk to the beach, bars, restaurants and shops. It was a little confusing when we first arrived. The hotel is renovating (this didn't affect us in any way) but there is no lobby as such and no clear direction of where to go. The staff were very helpful and... More

My boyfriend and I had our first trip Miami about a week ago. This hotel was so amazing! The room was nice and very simple. All of the women at the front desk were so nice and helpful!! You are literally right across the street from the beach. Also the music is very loud so if you planning on going... More

We live in Miami and went to the beach for a weekend getaway. We're very happy we chose Hotel Ocean! Even though the penthouse is unbelievable, the friendliness of the staff makes the hotel really special. The manager, Janina, did everything possible to make sure we were happy with our stay, and made us feel the hotel was our home... More

It is an older hotel, but we had a nice room with balcony overlooking the ocean. I know the restaurant is separate from the hotel, but we did enjoy the good food and drinks while people watching. Would stay again.
