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

This place didn't have a high trip advisor % when I booked it, but Miami Beach is insanely expensive and so, for the price, this was my best bet, I thought. Neat location on Hispanola. Lots of restaurants in the area. The reception is very friendly and helpful. Our room was just down the street and although they need to... More

I have stayed here twice for 5 days each time - once in March 2012 and again in May 2012. Both times we the building we stayed in was seperate from the main block across from a school but close to several eateries and on Espanola Street which seems miles away from the madness of Collins Avenue. The room itself... More

Only thing I like the most about this hotel is its location. It is located perfectly on the esponala avenue and washington avenue and less than a mile from the beach. Room was clean but small. I would recommend this place to those who doesnt care much about luxury yet stay close to the beach.

We stopped off just for one night (coming straight from the airport) before starting our driving trip around the southern states, so we wanted to get a feel for the real miami beach even though we would only have a few short hours that night and the next morning - The hotel delivered on this, both in terms of location...

We asked for a quiet room with a balcony facing Espanola way and we also got that which was just perfect. We stayed in block 5. Clay hotel have several rooms in different... More

Me and my friends decided to go on a fun trip to Miami and needed a hotel with great location for some beach, some drinks, some fancy dinning and some shopping. This hotel was ideal for that. Its located right at Española Way (which is a pedestrian street that comes to life at night with so many cool restaurants). Beach... More

The hotel was part of a vacation package we bought. Spent the first night there, then we changed to a more suitable hotel for us. The rooms themselves were ok, clean etc. But we had to carry our luggage(and they werent light or few!) up the little narrow stairs to the upper floor(3rd I think) and one had to exit... More
