The Clay hotel was just ok. I think the price is a little high for them to not have elevators, and only one mirror in the bathroom, not even full legth (I stayed in a double, with three other women...oh joy). When we checked in, the concierge told us to call if we needed anything, but every request we made,... More

If you want a great location to stay to visit South Beach at a modest price, this is it. Right at the corner of Espanola way where you'd find lots of street side restaurants. 2 blocks from the beach and Ocean Dr and 2 blocks from Lincoln pedestrian mall. Free wifi. Because South Beach hotels are very expensive, don't expect... More

I had a great stay. The hotel overcharged my credit card and I received a refund fast. The location was great, room was great and the food at the downstairs restaurant was delicious. I would stay there again and the location wasn't too far from the beach but it was more than a five minute walk.

Stayed here on the first three nights of my trip. A little hard to find but this was probably due to the police closing down the roads for the Memorial Day weekend rush. Was given a room in the building down the bottom of Espanola Way and it was perfectly adequate with a little balcony looking out on the street.... More

I booked this hotel with 2 of my friends, last-minute. It was our first time in Miami and we did not know the area very well. When we got there, we were so surprised by the quality of the room (we booked a 2-queen-bed room). It was very organised with bed in two sub-rooms separated by a little hallway and... More

The main draw of this hotel is the price for the location. Having read mixed reviews about this hotel I was curious as to what it would be like. I paid for a budget room and at approx $80 a night it was very cheap compared to the rest of Miami. It is very central and yes I was sent... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It is very well situated. On Espanola Way, it is within walking distance of the beach, Ocean Drive and Lincoln avenue. It is also near any type of restaurant or 7-eleven. We requested a quiet room and this is exactly whan we had. The rooms are roomy, modern, clean and have a lots... More

We stayed only for one night but we were shocked by its cleanliness. We weren't sure what to expect as we paid $85 to stay one night which was the cheapest rate for a Saturday night in South Miami Beach. When we arrived for check in, the staff didn't explain too much other than providing our room keys and letting... More

We stayed at this hotel back in May of this year. we arrived late on our arrival day, probably around 8 pm. When we checked in there was no one to help up with our bags. We were just coming from a 7 day south Caribbean cruise so our luggage was pretty heavy. We were in the second building and... More
