Just left after a 4 nights stay at the Clay. Had their budget room which was in their second building down the street. The hotel is right on Espanola Way, a very touristy & lively area of SoBe. My room in the second building was peaceful & I didn't hear much of anything from outside at all. My room was... More

I stayed here for a week while in Miami! The location of the hotel is perfect - it is a few blocks from beach and literally in the hub of everything!! It's situated at the beginning of Espanola way (one of the nicest streets in Miami in my opinion). The street has many bars and restaurants which has such a... More

We stayed here for a week in April. Found the hotel to have an excellent location spanning the length of espanola way. We stayed in the renovated annexe block - which is 30 seconds from reception in main block. People's reviews make it sound a mile away. It isn't! Yes there is no lift but for 1-2 flights of stairs...

Stayed here with 2 friends. Under construction and NO elevators or pool. Rooms located in separate building and walked up 3 flights of stairs with luggage. No ice machine. Friendly staff. In room safe and small refrigerator. In the middle of busy area with lots of restaurants.

We stayed here for a night before leaving for our cruise, and picked it based on a low price and decent reviews. We chose the "value" room for about $100, and were pleasantly surprised. The room had recently been renovated so everything seemed new. It was pretty small, but for 2 of us and one night it wasn't bad at... More

We stayed at The Clay the first week of March for one night! Yes there was a little remolding going on but didn't bother me none! Our stay was GREAT! The staff and rooms were fresh and clean! Our room was in the back part down Española Way. That part is great! We had a corner room that looked out... More

My partner and I stayed one night at the Clay Hotel in late March 2014. We have stayed there several times before. We always enjoy the great location, helpful staff and excellent value. This time we received a free upgrade so were particularly happy! We also appreciated the use of the bathroom on the second floor for guests who had... More

My husband and I were more than pleased with our stay at the hotel! The staff was gracious, kind, helpful and accommodating, and even one of the female staff carried our heavy luggage bag up the flight of stairs for us! We arrived there before 7:30am after getting off a cruise ship. We were immediately greeted and all of our... More

The hotel was really well located, the room was clean and the AC was also ok. The hotel is simple, so do not expect a lot of luxury, because you must always remember that the price is very very cheap for the average price charged around this area. I reccomend and I also indicate the brekfast next door. The italian... More
