We found Daddy O to be a great small boutique hotel. It is an older facility that has been well renovated. Our king bed was comfortable. The rooms are on the smaller side and there is seating in one easy chair and a desk chair. It has a small room refrig. if you want to chill your own water bottles and the safe is very convenient. The shower was quirky - half of a glass door with the rest of the shower open to the room. It made for a cool shower. I think I'd prefer the glass sliding door found in most hotels. The bathroom is small with little storage space. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was fine - cereal, muffins, fruit, yogurt, etc. The coffee machine off the lobby was a great treat - Starbucks quality coffee for free all day long. Thre are many foreighners staying here providng an interesting experience when visiting with them. The front porch has comfortabl seating and was nice for an evening cocktail with other travelers and watching the upscale cars being valeted at the Palm next door.
This is a great location. It is a few blocks from the beach and the crowded area around the beach condos, shops, restaurants, etc. The mall is only a block away and is very upscale. We'd stay here again if we should return to Miami.
