The cost is reasonable for this South Beach hotel. The location is amazing...2 blocks from the beach, restaurants on Ocean Drive, trendy retail stores, liquor stores etc. An Ok continental breakfast in the morning that will hold you to lunch time. The hotel is an old hotel but we found it clean. All we wanted was a place to sleep... More

We stayed for four nights in January and were very satisfied. Hotel has a perfect location, walking distance to everywhere. The staff was very helpful (first time in Miami) and friendly. The room was very clean but it could use some re modelling. Overall, we would stay there again.

We choose this discount hotel and were not disappointed. Excellent location just a couple blocks from the beach and from the art deco historic district. The staff was very helpful; they upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite for no charge. Yes, the building is somewhat aged but still very serviceable.

I've always read reviews on here before visiting hotels but never thought I would write my own review. After checking out of RSBH last week I really wanted to write them a good review on here. Our short stay was great! The gf and I were only staying in South Beach for one night so we wanted something affordable and... More

Not by any means a fancy hotel, just average. Everything is dated as obviously, it's an older hotel. The location is fantastic as it's only a few blocks away from the beautiful beach and plenty of places to eat and shop, but that was the biggest perk. The bathroom was cute and small, but clean, as was the room. Little... More

I chose this hotel for the price (Expedia) but it turned out to be a gem! Location is excellent! Close to beach, Art Deco, Ocean drive. But it is a QUIET location. Everything was walkable. Hotel is an original 1930s deco building! You will see remnants of it if you look. It was slightly shabby but I didn't care because... More

This hotel has an awesome location. It was just a few blocks walking distance from ocean drive, close to Washington avenue and the ¢.50 local bus, and about a $20 cab ride from the port of Miami. A++ on location. The staff was great also. Super friendly, outgoing, and very helpful. They even had candy for Halloween! This hotel is... More

The location of this hotel makes it acceptable, but it's very basic. TV is out dated, no amenities offered except for a very basic breakfast. Otherwise it's an ok hotel for budget travelers. The hotel is close to many restaurants and few blocks to the beach. The room we stayed in was ok and big enough for 2 people.

This hotel is located about 3 junctions from Ocean Drive, the main focus of South Beach, in which is actually not far to walk. It is conveniently located just behind Washington Avenue, 8 Street and bus stops to downtown and airport is on the 7th Street. Easy access to many restuarants, shops and publictransport are plus for this hotel as... More
