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

My dad and I each had a room here for a short stay in South Beach. You can catch the bus to the airport or to downtown Miami just a block away. The beach is a short walk, and along the beach is a great path for running. The kitchenette in my room was convenient as I could walk to... More

My husband and I stayed here on a long layover on our way to Mexico. The general area the hotel is in is OK. I didn't feel unsafe, but it wasn't the nicest. The hotel itself was laughably outdated and dingy but clean enough. No problems checking in or out and within walking distance to plenty of bars and bus... More

Stayed here a while ago, but am planning to return soon. Don't expect a luxurious hotel and 5* experience: the hotel is outdated and in need of a renovation. However, the staff is extremely kind and the rooms are clean. Everything you need is there and the location is superb. We managed to book this hotel at a nice price... More
