This is a super quirky hotel that’s absolutely great value for money considering its great location - about a 5-10 minute stroll to SB. We stayed for 3 nights at the start of a road trip around Florida and found the hotel to be clean and the room spacious enough (2 queen beds). We had a late check in (11.30pm)... More

This hotel is located near Lincoln Road with free parking. Parking is not convenient for moving car in and out everyday. If you just want to hang out in South Beach, park your car and walk, this is perfect. Hotel itself is very cute with good clean towels and nice warm shower, but room needs a major update. Considering the... More

Well I was blown away by this little gem of a hotel! I wished we could have stayed longer. We checked in late at night approx. 11.30pm, reception was clean, uncluttered and very efficient and even at that time of night the staff were very informative and still smiling! Check in was fast and first impressions of the hotel was... More

Stayed here for a few nights in Miami. Location is absolutely perfect; close to the beach, Lincoln boulevard is literally around the corner. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Parking is limited, but free when available. Wifi is available but would not rely on it (your on holiday so who cares anyway). Rooms need an overhaul, but fit nicely into... More

I decided to give this place a shot as me & 2 of my friends were driving down for the night. We arrived b4 check in time but was allowed to check in early. Parking is free. I was prepared for them to take my car key from previous reviews. Upon check in, we were handed a tv remote (weird...lol).... More

A couple friends and I went down to Miami for the 4th of July. We didn't want to spend that much money since we wouldn't be in the room that much. This place worked out well. It was WAY cheaper compared to the other hotels for the holiday weekend. Free parking and coffee in the morning. There was a microwave... More

This hotel was very well situated for beach and Lincoln road. Decor was very lively and fun! Lift broken for the 3 nights we stayed which was tricky since we were on the 3rd floor! Staff friendly but too laid back. Strange smell in corridors! Rooms basic and not completely clean. Overall would stay again because it was very good... More

My friend and I stayed here for only one night in order to attend a concert at The Fillmore. We were both pleased with the location, our room, the free parking, and the service. Because of some of the other reviews, we were a little concerned, but our room was much better than we expected. We could walk down the... More
