Rooms are a million yrs old, no renovations, walls are paper thin and hotel is noisy as hell.. And I'm a young person who likes to party! But not when it disturbs neighbors and those trying to sleep. Loudest door slams I've ever heard because of badly constructed old hotel. Back faces a noisy alley where trucks go up and... More

If you are looking for luxury accommodations stay somewhere else. This hotel is affordable and in a great location. But you get what you pay for. It was clean with simple accommodations. The hotel needs updates and we had a view of a back alley. Our windows were made out of plexi glass. It was loud at times with noise... More

We have stayed here 2 years in a row now, it's great bang for the buck! one street back from the beach, one block from starbucks, easy walk to lincoln rd. As far as the rooms go, they are basic, clean rooms , good air conditioning. There is a very nice swimming pool. They give you towels to bring to... More

In addition to great location, nice room , nice pool, our stay at the Carlton was made remarkable by the help my wife & I received from the hotel concierge, I don't know his name but his initials are CJ . Our rental car was hit & run in the Carlton parking lot. I informed the hotel concierge, a young... More

For this property the location is ideal. Collins ave and the beach basically one block away its a great location. My concern is the rooms. My beds has hair on the linen - room was dusty - bathroom had mold. For the price I found it interesting. This hotel needs more than a quick touch up as the hotels in... More

The Carlton South Beach is my new favorite hotel on South Beach. Located in the heart of the art, social and beach scenes, the hotel offer everything you could need. The rooms are clean and stylish, with crisp clean linens. The front desk staff greeted me like an old friend and made sure all my needs were attended to. The... More

This hotel is Dirty, the windows don't open making the room stuffy with only ac for airflow, just a bit run down overall. The carpet kind of grosses me out. Fine if it was $80 a night instead if $200, but just not worth the money. Great location however, just a block to the beach and shops/food

I was welcomed with a parking lot right on the Main Street, stylishly renovated rooms and an excellent staff eager to help me out. Ask for Luciano if you want to experience real service: me being a stranger to Miami, he took his time and gave insightful local hints and recommendations and thereby made my stay at this delightful boutique...

When we first arrived at the Carlton we were disappointed in the size of the room and the condition. Over the 7 days we stayed we were completely won over by the staff and the location. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and anything we asked for was done quickly and with a smile. For the price you cannot beat... More
