We were two couples looking for a room with two queen beds at a good price, near the beach and restaurants, in a safe area.
I scoured internet sites looking for a hotel that fit our needs for weeks. Finally, I nervously booked the Nassau Suite Hotel. I was uneasy about the hotel because there have been a number of mentions on television and in travel magazines about the poorly kept hotels in Miami Beach.
When we arrived, the lobby looked o.k. and checkin went smoothly. The desk clerk was helpful and welcoming. I had read a review that mentioned the tiny elevator. It was the smallest I had seen. It is marked "2 Person Maximum." Three normal sized persons could use it. The weight maximum is 1,000 pounds.
The hotel is clean. Our room had the two queen beds. The mattresses are not the "heavenly" type. The pillows are o.k. and there are lots of them. Towels were usuable, nothing special.
The reservations were made so far in advance that I had forgotten the room was a kitchenette. There was a full-size refrigerator and stove, with a few pots, pans and dishes for four. We were on vacation and had no interest in cooking.
The bathroom had been renovated at some point in recent years. The vanity was glass with a cute round sink and faucet. The tub was probably the original. I asked at the desk when the hotel was built and was told 1923. The tub was a bit of a challenge for either a shower or a bath. They have installed a glass panel from tub to ceiling that makes it impossible to turn the water on or off without walking into the tub. The tub has a rounded bottom that makes it treacherous to turn around while showering. It's also slicker than makes you feel comfortable to move around in.
The room had a small couch and a chair. The couch was fairly comfortable. The chair was molded plastic and completely uncomfortable after two minutes. There were two bar chairs that were also molded plastic and equally uncomfortable.
The room had two closets. One was a walk-in and huge. The other was somewhat smaller with very convenient shelves. The closets were a big bonus.
The housecleaning staff did a good job. The hotel offered a continential breakfast of bagels and cream cheese, breads for toast, jellies, yogurt, muffins, apples, oranges, bananas, juices, coffee and tea. Nicely displayed.
If you're looking for a clean, fairly comfortable place to stay for less than $200/night, you might want to consider Nassau Suite Hotel.
