“Perfect in Sobe epicenter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Great friendly, independent proporerty with terrific location on Ocean Drive. Eli at the front desk took fantastic care of us and provided helpful recommendations as to where to go when. Ocean has a couple of sister hotels in Sobe including the Versace Mansion which it recently acquired. I'm coming back!

Room Tip: Talk to Avi, she's fab.

It was our 10 year anniversary. We went on our honeymoon to this hotel. Great location. Good hotel, not so good maintenance though. After 10 years the hotel looked a bit run down, 3 out of 4 bicycles that hotel boasts you can borrow were dangerous to operate or not functioning at all.
The entertainment outside goes till midnight. Stuff very pleasant but a bit slow and relaxed. We still had a lot of fun and enjoyed our stay. With just a bit care and focus on details this hotel has a great potential. We like because it gives you a little break from all that South beach feel, since that is all you are surrounded during the day.
Best of luck, good place, good vacation, just do not expect anything extraordinary.

I. LOVE. THIS. HOTEL!!! Ellie(sp??) was probably the most amazing customer service representative that I have ever had the pleasure of working with to plan a hotel stay. We started off rocky as she accidentally hung up on me due to the "busy" ness of the hotel but called me right back and promised me the time of our lives if we stayed in her hotel. Well, we were not disappointed. Our hotel room had recently been renovated and it was GORGE!! We over looked the spirited walkway of Ocean Dr and were right above the plaza where the best Gypsy Kings impersonator was playing his guitar. The central location of the hotel made it super easy to access from everywhere that we went in Miami. We didn't eat there as we actually travelled into Miami proper such as the Bay and LIttle Havana. Both were a short drive from the hotel, as was North Beach, although you need to have a little more time on your hands to actually make this trip and we only had a few hours. Oh did I mention the free towels, beach chairs, cookies, juice, coffee and BIKES!!! Yes, we went bikeriding and it was awesome!! Janina(sp?) was super awesome as well as she let us change in her office as we got there so early!! There was a jacuzzi in the room although we didn't have time to utilize it and honestly, the ocean was outside so we were ok. All in all, I've been to Miami 4 times and by far this was my best trip. Maybe it was because of my boo, but maybe it was the great service at this hotel too!!!

Room Tip: There is a fitness center and swimming pool that is shared with a neighboring hotel.

We were happily surprised by the superb management and attention to detail that we experienced. Everyone treated us like royalty. Ellie at the front desk was particularly helpful.
Her recommendations were thoughtful; everywhere we went and everything we did was genuinely memorable. The Hotel is a diamond in the rough that provides lots of value and the "best" location. We will always remember this as our best anniversary ever.

We bought this through a Groupon Deal for our anniversary. I called and talked Yulima and asked her if it was possible to upgrade to a ocean view without hesitation she said "Of Course!" and the upgrade was complimentary. Our stay there was wonderful, the location is the best. The room was clean and welcoming. We loved every minute. We are definitely going to stay at Hotel Ocean again.
