Stayed at this hotel for a few nights and it was quite a pleasant stay. Got to the hotel from airport via 150 bus, which was a quick n cheap way of getting there, only 2.65 dollars. the bus stop is situated near the hotel which made it convenient. The location of the hotel was brilliant everything was so close,... More

Stayed in Private room. Room was spacious and clean. Had great amenities and wonderful location. No issues. This place had everything we needed. Nice cold a/c, tv and pool. Never really spent too much time in room as we were busy seeing the city. Great deal!

The bathrooms were ghetto and run down. Our room had no air conditioner or refrigerator. You get what you pay for. The only good things was the pool and the black cat hanging out in and outside the lobby.

OK came in on a Friday and this was the cheapest available hotel. Not terrible. I barely stayed in the room as I went straight to the beach! Service was good. The gentleman was very helpful. The room was two single beds....good sleep. The bathroom needs cleaning and some upgrade....but really cannot complain as I was only there before my... More

I think this is the best choice if you choose the hotel with low prices and good location. I stayed in this hotel for 1 week and my budget was limited, it looks quite old inside, but clean and nice for this price. My Macedonian friend advised me to stay here when she heard I was planning to go to... More

I visit South Beach twice each year and almost always plan my stay at The Tropics. I find the hotel to be clean, basic and comfortable and includes a nice pool for the money. The hotel is close to everything including the beach only a block away! I find the staff friendly andI enjoy meeting them each time I visit... More

I love the staff, they were so easygoing and friendly. Rooms are decent but people were great. Bathrooms are nice. The building is great and i like the location of that hostel very much! You can walk 3 minutes to Miami beach!

The room: We booked a double room with private bath & toilet. It was a good choice. The size was great compared to European rooms, but standard to American sizes. The bed was comfy and the room was quite basic but cozy. It would be a great improvement if they installed a refrigerator in the room. The room had a... More

When I searched for hotels for my trip to Miami in November 2013, I realized it’s best to stay in South Beach as this is were all the action takes place. Unfortunately, most hotels in or near the Art Deco district proved to be very expensive and all other decent accommodation was definitely too far away for my taste. The... More

Old hotel with character! Friendly staff and quick check in. Location is right in the middle of all the action, one block from a walgreens, rooms were small, simple, and clean. Wish there was more outlets, but clear signal to Wifi. Price is great, almost a cant beat. Recommend if your wanting to spend a weekend close to the beach.... More
