First of all.. It may have been great in it's hayday when Al Capone stayed here, but the clay hotel has nothing to make me go back. The photos on their website of what the rooms look like are misleading, housekeeping comes every other day, my credit card was charged before we checked in. All in all a terrible place... More

Hotel was nice, rooms were clean. Nothing fancy about it, but it met our needs. Air contition was too loud, so we had to turn it on and off during the whole night. (Too hot - too loud...) Valet parking took quite a while, but as we weren't in a hurry, it was alright. The location of the hotel was... More

We are in our 50's. The hotel looked better in person than in the pictures. It is an older hotel that has character and history. The service was excellent and we were able to get into a room early. The room was clean and the bathroom looked like it was recently upgraded. Our 2nd floor room was half a block... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and it was the worst experience in our 3 week stay in Florida. We had prebooked and prepaid for our 2 nights. When we arrived to check in we were ignored for ages. When they finally got to us we were given a bill. We told them we had pre paid and... More

Stayed for 2 nights recently at the Clay Hotel, we where in the annexe down from the main building and this suited us fine. The building was very secure and much quieter than I think the main building would be. The room was very small but spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, perfect for our short stay but might... More

Thank you Pinks3 for sharing your experience with others ! Despite its small appearance The Clay Hotel stretches from Washington Avenue all the way down to Drexel Avenue and is made up of two buildings, which greatly assists us in providing all sorts of different room options from street view, balcony, and quieter rooms for all our guest requests. Glad... More

This hotel has a good location near Ocean Drive and in the middle of Espanola Way. Is close to the beach. Great to a couple. The staff are friendly and some speak spanish. The rear rooms are most noiseless. We will return.

You get what you pay for here. The location on Espanola Way is unbeatable, very close to everything you would want to go to in Miami Beach, only blocks from the beach. However, the proximity to Washington Ave. means that noise is a definite factor at night, assuming you are going to sleep at a normal time. The rooms are... More
