“Great accommodation at great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Lovely hotel, great room. One of the best beds ever!!! Room small but very comfortable. To go breakfast included, no where to sit to eat it.
Staff polite and helpful
Sadly will not return to Miami due to an horrendous experience of having car towed. All tourists need to be made aware of the $317 charge to recover your vehicle

We’re sorry to hear about your car being towed. That is honestly a rare occurrence and we are happy to hear that your car was not towed while on Daddy O Hotel property. Otherwise, thank you for the wonderful review. Our beds are one of the most requested items after a guests stay. Just in case you were wondering, these beds are especially made for wholesale distribution to hotels, so unfortunately, you would not be able to purchase one for domestic use. Thank you for recognizing the effort, and friendliness of all our staff. And hopefully you will reconsider coming back to Miami so that you can return to the Daddy O Hotel.
Best Regards,
Daddy O Hotel Staff

We brought our two little dogs and the staff was so nice to them (even though they barked a lot). The rooms were clean and spacious. The breakfast staff was super nice and gave us food even though we were late. They even pay your parking meter (with a small fee). I would definitely recommend it to a friend!

My husband and I recently stayed at Daddy O's and were very impressed with the helpful and friendly staff and the lovely "boutique" rooms with a rain head showers and a very comfortable bed. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe with good restaurants close by. We were very impressed with the quality of the hotel given the reasonable price.

I recently stayed for a few days at the Daddy O in Bay Harbor Island. I found the room clean and comfortable and the staff very pleasant, particularly Ms. C. Moore, the Assitant Manager. She was patient and most helpful with suggestions about beaches, restaurants, places to visit. She is very familiar with the area, a great asset to the Hotel and the reason why I will return on my next trip and recommend Daddy O to my friends..

Room Tip: a little noisy, could hear conversation from the other rooms

We just returned from our second stay at Daddy O and have already begun planning for our next visit. The hotel is boutiquey with clean rooms and VERY comfortable beds. The continental breakfast was more than enough to get us started on our day and I especially enjoyed the fresh fruit. The overnight parking is easily accessible but because Daddy O is located around the corner from a row of superb restaurants, we could walk to dinner. Our favorite this trip was Betto's. Amazing food and best martinis ever!
What makes Daddy O feel like a home away from home is the staff. Kevin, the manager, is always available and so accommodating, inquiring about our satisfaction and ready to suggest restaurants and sightseeing options. The other staff, Jeff, Courtney and Elaine are so friendly, always smiling, accomodating our every wish, made excellent suggestions for food and fun, and even supplied beach towels!!!
To sum it up, we can't wait to go back to Daddy O.
