“Excellent location, great value, terrible wifi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

The location is absolutely perfect! You are a block away from the beach and Ocean Drive. Lincoln Road Mall is about a 5 minute walk away. You will find everything you need within a walking distance.

The rooms and public spaces are modest and clean although the whole place does have this musky 'old house' smell to it. The service was great, the front desk people are very informative and nice.

Sadly the wifi barely worked if worked at all during my week long stay there. There is no pool nor room service available but they do serve continental breakfast.

All in all, it was a great deal at a prime location and I would stay there again anytime.

This hotel is very old, the rooms are small like most older hotels, but maintained in great shape and very clean. Shower worked fine and the bed was comfortable. There is a small bar in the lobby and the continental breakfast was enjoyable, especially eating out on the porch. The staff was nice and accommodating, and the location is very good, just a short walk down to the beach, and shopping/restaurants nearby. The price is affordable, or was for us as we scored a "deal" online. Only downside was the ongoing construction in front of the building on the road, and lack of free parking. If I go back to Miami Beach, I would stay there again.

I have been bringing my family to south beach plaza hotel since 2007 and everytime we stay here the staff is great rooms are always clean!. Sabastian is the absolute best I have came back every year to the same hotel for seven yrs in a row an wouldnt go any where else. This hotel doesnt have a pool or hot breakfast but u have a friendly staff and the beach is less then 5 min away. Plus ocean dr is right there for your own convience. If your staying to party and see south beach! This Location is PERFECT!!! This is truely my second home will be back 2014!

Great location, it's 1 block from south beach and all the sobe amenities. Good continental breakfast, the crew is excellent always willing to help. Free internet helps. Parking for $27 a day is reasonable given the parking situation in sobe.

I wish: rooms were little bigger, the internet login credential didn't need to be entered during every new login and the concierge was less salesy.

Overall happy with my stay.

Excellent location, only a block from the beach, walking distance to restaurants and nightlife. Our room was clean, comfortable and cool. Room and bathroom updated. Had a nice bar in the lobby and a great porch to sit and enjoy. Staff was friendly and very accomodating. We arrived 3 hours prior to check in and the held our bags. Also held our bags when we checked out and had 2 hours kill. Would stay there again, and again...

Room Tip: Elevator is small. Recommend first floor room - no view but convenient.

Excellent location to the beach and various attractions. The hotel is currently going through a restoration in the courtyard, but this does not effect hotel guests in anyway, leaving the possibility of a nicer outdoor section. Construction along Collins, no fault to the hotel, makes it slower than usual to drive to the hotel.

Sebastian at the front desk shined at his guest service attitude, very professional,which reflected in every way possible in the most positive manner possible in his handling of guest services. A true asset to the hotel!

My only comment is the shades within the room- they could be better, in order to insure not so much light comes in; makes it harder to sleep. The rooms are nice, classic look and feel, but still modern.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel, I think you will be very happy!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Our stay was very pleasant. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the proximity to the beach is great. Our room was clean. We appreciated the hardwood floors in our room as we were always tracking sand back to the room. The hotel is older, and if you come expecting it to be like a modern Hilton, you will be disappointed. The bathroom is smaller and less fashionable than new hotels. Breakfast was free and typical for many hotels: bagels, muffins, yogurt, juice, hot water for oatmeal, and coffee. If you need more than this to be happy, you need to plan on going out to eat or stay somewhere else. There are many restaurants nearby. You need to be aware that you are staying right on South Beach, which is a party kind of place on the weekends. Depending on your room location, you will hear outside noise (music, people laughing, etc.). It was not an issue for us, but we live in a house full of teens and are used to a bit of noise while we sleep. We did not hear much room to room noise, except while in the bathroom we could occasionally hear the neighbors. The front porch of the hotel is a nice place to sit, eat breakfast and watch people. Parking at South Beach is tough. We paid the $25/day valet parking at the hotel. It was well worth the expense.
