“Freaking Awesome!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

The only bad thing about this hotel was waiting to check in. We waited about two hours to be able to check in, which was whack especially when you are tired from traveling all day. Other than that the hotel was nice. All of the hotels on the beach seem to have an out dated structure, but it was still nice. Employees were very accommodating, patient, and friendly!!! I would stay here again and recommend this hotel!

I have now stayed at this hotel twice (once this past weekend and about a year ago for my birthday). I chose this hotel because it was inexpensive and clean. The service here is fantastic! Jose works at the front desk and he is hilarious! Apparently there are two guys named Jose and both are hilarious but the one who I saw went above and beyond to help. He helped me print out tickets with no charge as well and even set up the computer for me because I struggle with technology. We came down later and he even stopped to take a picture for us. The room was also really clean and it looks like the bathrooms have recently been renovated because the shower was a railfall faucet and it was heaven. The valet was only $22 which is like $18 cheaper than most places on South Beach. Overall, it was a great experience both times I have stayed at the Kent Hotel and I will be coming back again. I highly recommend it!

I my opinion this part of south beach is the best to reach the beach and not far to get to south beach shopping area. The hotel is above average, rooms are enough big for 2, bathrooms renovated and confortable bed. The lobby is a little vintage (as the elevator) but authentically deco. The ratio quality/price/location is probably the best in this area. Will return for sure.

horrible experience.. dirty rooms, stains on pillows and lamps, broken shades, and curtains were fixed by A SCOTCH TAPE and it fell off the first time i tried adjusting it. Aweful front desk representstives. not only my experience was terrible, but when i tried to cancel they decided to charge me for an extra night because i was checking out early. which was at 10:30 am and their checkout time is at12:00. just spend some extra money abs go somewhere else. you will regret wasting the money there..

The Kent is a small hotel with out a pool. (Who needs a pool when ur steps away from the beach?) They have a nice side bar with good food & drinks. Nothing fancy, but most decently meet all your needs. The guys at check-in & check-out were all cool & helpful. The rooms are clean & neat. This was not my first stay at the Kent & won't be my last.

We were only at this hotel for 3 nights - it's central enough without being right in the middle of things - although folk do come back to the hotel in the early hours and then stand in the hallways chatting (and walls are thin). We did the bus tour which was fun and the beach is fantastic - huge! Hotel staff reasonably helpful, rooms basic but ok

We had two rooms...requested non-smoking...one was terrible...had to move. Parking...what a joke..next door there is a lot, $10 per hour max 3 hours. You can park up the street at the public parking for $16 per 24 hours but it fills up late morning on weekends. Can't park on the streets overnight or on weekends unless you have a resident sticker...tow and fine and I saw them out checking. Good location but lots of construction in the street. Rooms basic but clean. Area okay but one block west and you hit tattoo parlors...my wife and I were not comfortable there in the evenings...were there for a concert in a club and walked tot he club. The area is not the same as it was two years ago when I was there. However, Lincoln is still a lot of fun and a couple of blocks northwest on Washington is Espanola Way which was fun. Good restaurants in both places and safe. Lots of shops up on Lincoln.

Room Tip: Be there for the location and the beach. If you want creature comforts stay on Biscayne Bay or ante...
