Great Great location! BUT...Not sure what the resort fee covers. Between the resort fee and pay to park - That costs an addition $24 per day. They were doing a lot of repairs on the property... a lot more are needed. The hotel is like the old house on the block surrounded by new 5 and 6 star new construction.... More

old style hotel but fantastic place right on the beach, great staff. clean and very affordable. most buses stop outside, lots of restaurants within walking distance. give a great taste of Miami beach life without the hustle of south beach.

Hotel was very comfortable. Good size room with a balcony. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good size and very clean pool.Have direct access to the beach. Hotel is slightly further from the main 'touristy attraction'

Only because I can't rate 3.5... Good Stuff First: Location/View-Awesome! Price-Decent. Staff-Nice. Room Overall-Very Good (balcony w/ a view of the Ocean!). We were blessed with a kitchen and were able to shop across the street to save money for other stuff. The room was pretty clean. Direct access to the beach and the ocean. The view was AMAZING!!! Bad... More

This is a very quaint hotel. Cheaper than anywhere else and smaller as well. I absolutely loved this place. I had heard some horror stories but totally unfounded. the food in the hotel was excellent, staff friendly I couldn't fault it and one of the best bits was just walking out straight out onto the beach, and if you use...

Perfect location - across the street from Publix, nearby shopping plazas, and mall. 20+ minute drive to south beach via Collins. Older hotel with limited amenities, however it is beachfront and offers a low key, relaxing environment on the beach. Vacationed there during spring break and decided to enjoy the beach at the hotel versus south beach to avoid the... More

This is tough, the staff that I meet with were great and the room was clean. For the money I spent I'm happy for what I got. Hotel is right on beach and is older. Could probably use renovation but It was clean. So if you want a hotel on the beach and on a budget you will probably be... More

we recently stayed at the Thunderbird and I think enough has been said as to the fact that it is very dated but have seen quite a few comments about the staff not being good. we found all the staff friendly and helpful and suspect those who do complain are those whose expectations are too high and their mood is...

Being directly on the Ocean in Sunny Isles Beach makes the Hotel great. I found it to be rather quaint and all of the staff was kind and helpful. I enjoyed the small lounge on the inside with live music from time to time. I really love walking up from the Ocean and enjoying a cold draft beer at the... More
