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

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.

This is my third time here, so they must be doing something right. Every time I go back to Miami, I look for alternatives but so far have been unable to find anything in our price range with this sort of location. Service is good, shared areas are good, location is fab as easy walk to Lincoln Road, cinema, beach,... More

This hotel/hostel is in a great location, the beach is just across the road & it is in the centre of South Beach. If you are just looking for a room, then this place is great. We got a private room for a couple of nights & the bed was comfy but it definitely has an 80's feel to it,... More
