I stayed here for 3 nights, great price for probably the best location you can ask for, evrrything that you need is about 5 min walk. Very friendly staff and very clean and tidy. Great happy hour ( 1$ dollar for a drink of the day between 7-8pm )

Stayed at this hotel one night before a cruise and it was very convenient. Was able to check in around 11 am which was great. A little noise since the room was facing the main street but it didn't bother us since we just wanted a place to get ready to enjoy the Miami Nightlife and spend the night. The... More

Our stay here wasn't extremely bad but definitely not a hotel I would recommend or stay at again. For the location, what you pay for is what you get. The ladies at the front desk are slow and always had to wait in line for 5+ minutes at any given time. Just to get towels for the beach took forever.... More

Absolute worst hotel we have stayed in on our honeymoon. The staff at reception were unhelpful. The first room we were given was right next to the elevator that had paper thin walls... Not only could we hear the elevator itself but everyone talking and going in and out of it at all hours of the night no sleep at... More

Don't spoil your vacation by staying at this hotel. The receptionist is very rude. She actually answered the phone when I asked about parking. She then told me that parking was $29 but was sold out of parking passes. So guest staying at hotel had to park somewhere else. I found parking about a half a mile down the street... More

Paper thin walls, constant street traffic. The bathroom was dirty and crumbling. After a sleepless night a coffee pot in room would be nice. The location is fantastic how ever even in South Beach a little sleep is needed..would not recommend.

Stayed here for one night before a cruise and would certainly recommend the Dorchester. It is ideally located and is very clean with good sized rooms. It might not be the most modern hotel in Miami but it is friendly and comfortable with a cosy little bar.

The hotel is conveniently located on Collins Avenue just across the street from the hotels that border with the beach. Despite some renovations, the rooms are definitely outdated. A safety deposit box and a mini fridge are available. The bathrooms are regular size, but quite a few things are scratched, the bathrooms were clean, but appeared to be very old.... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your visit to Miami Beach. After reading what you had to say about our hotel, it has come to my attention that our hotel was not up to your standards and that your stay here with us was average. I want to send you an apology as we... More

I'll be honest, I was nervous after reading bad reviews on Tripadvisor etc, but I was a lot more impressed. When we arrived we were given a room that had a missing safety deposit box, and no window blind - things we didn't discover until the evening. When we informed Front Desk, they were really helpful in letting us have... More
