Good location and good value for money. Kitchenarea and outside patio. Very close to the beach and nightlife. Stop for Big Bus tours nearby. There is a pool but i wouldn't swim in it... Helpful staff at the reception.

We paid $99/night here, best deal we found in Miami Beach. We have previously stayed at Island House a few blocks away, but the ratings there have slipped so we chose Tropics Hotel this time. Taxi from MIA airport is $35, or you can take city bus #150 – Miami Beach Airport Flyer, which gets you to 1 block from... More

The location is great, just across the road from the beach and close to bars, but still rather quiet. The room was spacious, but old and very ugly. What we really hated was that the window could not be opened!!! We found it extremely overpriced for what is was, but maybe that's just Miami Beach....

Hotel was clean and very spacious. We got a queen sized bedroom with plenty of space (including a walk in wardrobe) and all working amenities including air conditioning. Hotel/Hostel provides a common kitchen and fridge services for cheap meal preparation. We bought some cheap beers at a local bottle shop and enjoyed a quiet evening at the hotel (using the... More

I have visited South Beach many times. I was hesitate to stay at a hotel/hostel being single and 50 years old. I was pleasantly surprised at the clean room, huge pool and the friendly staff at the Tropics Hotel. I love the location..easy walk to Washington and Lincoln Road. Ocean Drive and a Starbucks is literally across the street (2... More

A friend and I booked here for 5 nights whilst we were travelling around America. Quite frankly, Miami is lovely, but the Tropics is awful. We arrived at reception a couple of hours earlier than expected, we waited for 10 minutes as the man at reception wouldn't acknowledge us as he was on the phone! We were told we could... More

I would not recommend this hotel, We stayed here for 6 days, then we had a cruise and after that we stayed here for 4 days. There is really nothing in this hotel, not even a cup of coffee, the only thing there is is a soda pop machine where you can get tin cans out of it. The rooms... More

Really lovely welcome from taey (not sure if I spelt that right) she was so friendly and helpful...really lovely. Housekeeper also very helpful. The rest of the experience was not good. Our private room was very, very overpriced, poor bathroom with no shower-head, rough old towels and generally very tired surroundings. Very loud a/c, uncomfortable bed, no room facilities. The...

We stayed at the Tropics Hotel the night prior to a cruise. The price is low, property one street in from the beach and the front desk staff is exceptional. The rooms are dated but clean. The lobby and pool are nice. There is no restaurant on site but nice restaurants nearby and the "restaurant row" which is a pedestrian... More

This was by far the cheapest hotel we could find in Miami, whilst still pricey for a hostel it was great value in comparison. Fantastic location, walking distance to Ocean Drive etc. The room was surprisingly good, decent bed and clean with private ensuite. Helpful staff on the desk too.
