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

I've stayed here during several visits to Miami. Had a nice room with terrace overlooking the ocean. The terrace rooms are set back so their is less noise from the bustling ocean drive. This is not a luxurious hotel, but I've always found it satisfactory and clean. The management gives the word "laid back" new meaning. They are relaxed about... More

Best part of the stay was the service offered at check in from Ellie, I work in hospitality and maybe for that reason have a special eye and bit of patient when complaining about hotel stays. The first room we received had a dirty carpet, dirty curtain, and dust under a pillow, so we asked to be moved to another... More

However, due to tree lines & such ...it's not great for water view. The room was very fresh & clean. Very modern & updated in furnishings. Wi-fi & cable. Large in footage & Bed... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and found the place quite charming. The location is awesome and the price was quite affordable in comparison to some of the other hotels that are near the beach. You're right in the middle of ocean drive; expect it to be loud until late into the night especially if you're facing the courtyard so keep... More

This hotel had some mixed reviews online, so I will admit, I started to get nervous before we arrived, hoping we wouldn't be extremely disappointed when we got there. And I wasn't at all! The location of this hotel was fantastic. It's right on Ocean Drive, where everything is happening in South Beach. Cross the street and you're on the... More

The service we received from Ellie was one of the greatest thAt I have ever received. She took great care of us during our stay and accommodated us to the best of her ability. She has a great smile and genuinely wants everyone to have a great experience during their stay at Hotel Ocean.

I booked the Penthouse Suite in June of 13 for a January of 14 stay. Hotel Ocean made me prepay for 1 night of a two-night stay, which I did, in order to reserve the Penthouse. A week before we were to arrive, I received an email from them confirming my reservation for my upcoming stay in the Penthouse. The... More

Hotel Ocean was perfect spot to experience South Beach Miami, FL! Restaurant on hotel plaza was convenient. This hotel is right in the thick of things so be prepared for night life action. Great VIEW!
