3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The location was great! Wish we stayed a little more down on oceans though as Park Central is at the end. We did a lot of walking to get where we needed to go. The pool is small and mostly shaded but it was nice. The rooftop sundeck was nice but doesn't face the ocean. The windows in the rooms... More

I'm not sure why: maybe because Park Central was one of the first to restore a deco hotel to its rightful decadence. Maybe it's the ceiling fans and corner rooms and crank windows - that catch the ocean's breeze, drying you off quicker than a towel. Maybe it's the people. Maybe it's the photo shoots, or ESPN hosting Women's Beach... More

Hotel location is perfect. The exterior looks great as well and fits right in with the Art Deco if the area. I decided to stay here because of location and its age. However when I arrived I was surprised to see a abandoned bar area right by the lobby. Missing ceramic tiles on the floor of the elevator. Room and... More

First off all, I would have given 4 stars If the elevator didnt completely destroyed the posibility to have a good night sleep. Sounded like the centrifuge on a old tired washmachine. The room (516) had great view over Ocean Drive and the beach and a good bed. Of course it was a bit old and worn, but its a... More

All around we were very happy - great price, great location. The rooms weren't fabulous but the service was good and the roof top deck had a great view and you could see the ocean even with the "partial ocean front" room.the beach is right across the street and everything you need is right on Ocean. Very South American vibe.

I don't see how this place could have any bad reviews. This hotel completely deserves an across the board 5 star review. Charming old building but kept VERY clean. Lovely rooms that have everything you need including iPod speakers and flat screens. Simple decor but with some Miami flair. The pool (which looks out to Ocean Ave) had a cool... More

Everyone was very helpful, especially a gentleman at the front desk named Rudy. Great prices, considering the area, too. Highly recommend for a south beach trip on a budget. The pool area was minimalist, but very cool. The pool was small, but clean and overall convenient.

We picked this hotel for the location and convienance. The room we were in had a great view of the Main Street and beach. The rooftop is nice to go up on to get a good look at the area and take pictures. The hotel is great for what it is, to sleep, but I think a renovation would be... More
