We were lucky to find a room for a party of five and we didn’t regret our choice. The check in was easy and the staff very nice with my children and my mother. If you are looking for a five star hotel don't stay here, but if you want a clean room close to SOBE with a good complimentary... More

Stayed here for one night on 10th july 2009. We got lucky with a parking space right in front of the door, the duty manager was helpful enough but not particularly friendly. The hotel looks ok from the street but inside its old & rundown. The carpets in the rooms are frayed and worn, the door had a double lock... More

I stayed at the Island House with my husband and two other friends. We went to South Beach for the Winter Music Conference and to basically party and we weren't really in the room much. It was decent. The carpet was old and the bathroom wasn't the best but let me tell you for the price and the location it... More

Good guest house at a reasonable rate in the heart of South Beach Miami 1 block from the beach. If you are expecting luxury, stay elsewhere. But if you want a comfortable, no-frills room close to the action with a great morning breakfast, this is a good choice. I stay in the economy, shared bath rooms that are basic but... More

This hotel was great for my partner and I and our friends for Winter Party. We were so close to the beach and also the host hotel. You won’t find luxury here – just the basics which is fine. Breakfast was great and conversation was fun. The front porch in the evening was great for people watching. Our room was... More

Got to the Island House around 9am. Room wasn't ready yet but they held our suitcases behind the front desk while we checked out the beach. We also got to take advantage of the free continental breakfast which was really good. (muffins, toast, cereal, coffee, OJ) Checked in around 11am. The room and bathroom were clean. "WHOA, Check out that... More

Not really a hotel, but a rundown flophouse. Nothing worked in this dump, no cable, no phone. Front desk is rude and nasty, and THIS PLACE SMELLS!!! They had my one night deposit, or I would have turned around and run. Many other choices right down the street. Believe the other reviews here!!! Pay a little more and stay in... More
