A short 5 minute all to Lincoln drive and a further 5 minutes to ocean drive. Literally 5 minutes to beach where there is a deal with sunbed hirers and the hotel for chairs and umbrellas. The hotel is clean and rooms spacious enough with good sized bathrooms. It's the location that sells it though, close enough to the madness... More

The rooms were a decent size (three of us shared a room comfortably), always clean and nicely decorated. Only complaint was there wasn't really anywhere to... More

A small, friendly well maintained hotel, just a stones throw away from the beach, that I would recommend to small parties and families. I travelled as one of 4 friends, and on arrival I was lucky to upgrade one of our 2 twin standard rooms to a family size one at no extra cost. My jaw nearly hit the floor... More

My cousins and I came to Miami beach for a vacation and bachelor party we will never forget. The hotel was always spotlessly clean, and although it's a very old building, the renovations and decor make sure you forget about that.
