Our family stayed in two rooms at The Clay Hotel for one weekend night before we headed to a cruise. Espanola Way is such a special little area with a wonderful selection of restaurants and entertainment. The location is convenient to the beach, the rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and it was surprisingly quiet considering all of the activity in... More

Hotels should know bed sizes and they should be honest about the bed size. I chose the deluxe queen room. What I got was two tiny rooms with DOUBLE beds. The DOUBLE beds in the room barely left enough room to move around. Yes the room was clean and there was no outside noise. The hotel entrance is a bit... More

The location of the hotel compared to the price is amazing. Lots of amazing food on Espanola Way (which is right on the doorstep) and the hotel is five blocks from Ocean Drive. The beach is a 2 minute walk away also. Lots going on around. The room was spacious enough for me and it was clean. The only issue... More

A good central location. The rooms are small and perfunctory. This is a no frills hotel but my husband and I still spent three good nights here as apart of our honeymoon. Its a shame there is no pool.

I stayed here for a day. This hotel is situated in the city center. If you are a foodie, this place is a heaven as it is situated in the Spanish street. The hotel is very old but maintained very well. There is no elevator and even though the front desk is at the road side you actually have to... More

This hotel is right in the middle of South Beach. The staff was very courteous and helpful, we would have like a pool but we were there only one night. The rooms are small but all we did was sleep there. The breakfast was nothing to write home about and they were really understaffed. I felt sorry for the girl... More
