FAVIOLA and MARCELO were beyond helpful, super friendly, and honest. They noticed that we were frustrated with getting a reservation on Expedia and they came to our rescue. The service was excellent,and the price you pay for the location is ideal.

A friend and I stayed at ORS for a few nights just before the Memorial Day rush, and we never encountered a problem. Our room was very neat and clean, with minor wear and tear (it is an Art Deco South Beach hotel, after all). The complimentary water, coffee and towels were a great treat, and the staff were always... More

The room had a terrible smell. There was a very old carpet all over the room clearly not well cleaned. The windows weren't easy to open, and even when open the air didn't circulate well enough to get reed of the smell. The air conditioning didn't work very well and it was very noisy. A lot of noise came in... More

Awful staff had an attitude the moment we walked in. Didn't want to show us the room before paying. When we we were finally able to see the room, it reeked of mold and mildew. Rust all over bathroom walls and shower. Hand prints all over walls. Skittles on floor. It was, disgusting and smelled awful.it was just plain dirty.... More

This was a perfect location for a one day stop where we wanted to be close to the beach. We knew what we were getting ourselves into as far as the current construction on Collins Avenue and that the place wasn't as high end as others but I still think it is a bit too highly priced for what you...

Here's what I want from a hotel: 1) Quiet room - I requested this and was assigned to studio 304. Perfect. I hear that other studios face noisy Collins Ave. Front desk clerk told me she does the assignments and takes these requests very seriously. 2) Mattress I can sleep on - I can't sleep on pillow top mattresses.

The hotel is ok, location is great! just where all the cool hotels are. The only point is that my room didn't have real windows, but a 'sort of' windows... so actually I could hear each single breath from the street during the night, which in SoBe is kinda crazy. Room and kitchen ok, bathroom very very old, and so... More

It's somewhere to lay your head after coming back from the bar/club. I stayed in a room on the first floor and the shower/bathroom sucked. The water would seep out to where the toilet is because the drain was clogged I believe. We just had to wear flip flops at all times. Going to rooms numbered 300, the drains were... More

For the price, I am very happy. The location is perfect other than a couple of drawbacks * no parking included ( I did park across the street for $30 a day which worked out well) * the street directly in front of the hotel was currently under construction. It was fine last year though And will be great next... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night before a cruise and it was excellent! We mainly chose it based on its location because we wanted to be close to the south beach strip.
