Pros: location, price Cons: cockroachs, lack of customer service, additional charges to my card, not to mention the entire hotel has a awkward smell i can't seem to pinpoint. Spend a little more and stay somewhere else. Being a "boutique" hotel is not excuse for the lack of cleanliness

If you are going to spend the night out, and not drink & drive it's perfect. Because the thin walls will allow you to listen everything. Definitely request a room in the second floor. The front desk people is moody.

My husband (fiancé at the time) and I stayed at the Clifton Hotel in Spring 2013 when we visited for the weekend and we had a positive experience. The room & bathroom were clean & modern and the staff was friendly & helpful. We also loved that it was within walking distance to the beach and the Art Deco district... More

Don’t ever use this hotel or any hotel in the Ascend Hotel Collection chain. We were visiting the hotel 2 times during our Christmas holidays 2013. The first time we checked in using my husband’s credit card and the second time we used my credit card. We had paid for both stays before arrival, so we only had to pay... More

I stayed at the Clifton in Miami before my cruise and I can't say enough horrible things about this place. It is a pure dump!! First they charged my credit card for accidentals instead of just putting a hold on my card like most hotels and charge my credit card for resort fees which it is far from being that!... More

I would have given it a 5 star for the value I got, but the clerks at the front desks were so cold. They did not greet you properly and all they cared was to get your signatures for the charge. The location is good, very close to everything. The hotel is still under remodeling. The new rooms are very... More

When we arrived there was major raod construction on Collins. The driver of our car had to let us off a block away as the road was closed in front of the hotel. Thankfully it was damp so there was no dust from all the construction. Half the road was open the next morning. The young man that checked us... More

Compared to the swanky hotels in South Beach, this is a budget option. Should have paid more as my wife gave me hell for a month after. You get what you pay for! The location is good and a multistorey carpark nearby means you do not have to pay for valet parking. The room was clean; a bit small but... More

I was there for 5 nights paid $161 plus resort fee. Let's start with the location is excellent. 2 blocks from the beach. Couldn't ask for more. But rooms are small & along with the bathroom needs brighter lights. With 2 people in the room we had to live out our suitcases for 5 nights had no place to put... More
