The hotel is good for beach tourists... I mean you don't spend a lot of time in your hotel room when you're in Miami Beach anyway. The wifi is included in the rates, but not working that good. Five minutes of walking and you're at the Ocean Drive and the beach!

A colleague and I stayed at the Crest hotel for three nights for business. The area is rather pleasant, just off Collins and Washington at 17th street. Plenty of restaurants around, and still pretty close to the beach. Apart for that, I had a few bad surprises: the hotel indicates a $30 / night valet parking fee. As it turns... More

Good location, a very basic, small hotel room. No coffee pot in the room. We were on the main level with a king size bed. The bed takes up most of the room. The bathroom is tiny. There isn't even a shelf in the shower for your shampoo or soap. We were there with a large group and was able... More

Good location as it's walking distance to the beach and all shopping. Staff is friendly and willing to help however on the pricey side for what you get and that is basic. If you looking to spend one night in South Beach this place will work...anything more then that and I would look elsewhere.

We stayed here for 3 nights and chose this place because we were on a budget. We called in advance to book a room on the third floor which I think is the only reason we were able to check-in early; although we did have to wait 45 mins for the room to be ready. The girl at the front... More

At best this is a travel lodge with no amenities and the people that work there are extremely rude! The rooms are small the bathrooms smaller and there is nothing in the room or on property to even get a glass of water. You can tell it has been updated so at least the bed is decent but trying to...

As many other reviewers have said here, the location is great in the South Beach area, but the facilities are extremely basic. In essence this is a travel lodge but older and even more basic. Two double beds, a fairly small bathroom, no tea and coffee facilities. If you are looking for somewhere just to rest your head then its... More

Way better then we expected! The location we knew it was going to serve us well. but the service and the big room was a pleasant surprise! The crib for my baby was already in the room, which had a great mini kitchen that helped a lot with preparing baby food and bottles!

We stayed here 2 days ago for 5 nights. Our room was small but was perfectly fine for us, until we wanted to go to sleep. The blinds allow all light to come through including at night whilst the lights are on out side. It's makes 2am look like 10am. We could here everything around us. Our neighbours conversations and...
