“BED BUGS FOUND in Rm 201...SO NASTY!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We had already stayed 3 nights in the hotel when we started noticing bites and itchy red marks. One of us woke up to a bug crawling on the pillow which led to searching and the discovery of MORE BUGS...in the bed, on the wall, in cracks behind the bed. At 3am, we went downstairs to tell the front desk. His response was "wow" and "you have to wait until morning to talk to the manager". We requested new sheets and decided to at least change all the sheets on the bed where there may have been bugs. Ultimately, finally at 5am, we decided to sleep on the couch.

In the morning, we brought the bugs down to show the front desk manager. At first he was very surprised and he did apologize. He said he could put us in another room. When we went into the new room, we found dead termites on the floor and said THAT'S IT...so we packed our stuff and went downstairs to say we were going to a different hotel. At that point, he said the only thing he could do for us was to not charge us for our final night (we had one night left). WELL DUH!! If we aren't staying here, we wouldn't expect to pay. He was doing us no favours. We then asked for some sort of compensation for the previous night that we had discovered the bugs and were up until 5am cleaning. In the end, he refused to aid our problem in any kind of way. No compensation was provided. We were totally unsatisfied with how the hotel dealt with the problem. It's $5.00 to wash and dry a load of laundry there....maybe that could have been offered to us AT THE VERY LEAST.

THEN...get this...he accused us of having more people in our room sleeping there when this wasn't the case at all. We had friends come and go, who had their own hotel. But to make this accusation after what we went through was just plain disrespectful.

All in all, the room was nice and spacious, but the cleanliness was a major issue and customer service was awful. My advice...go stay at a bigger, more well known hotel and search the room to make sure you don't have any nighttime company.

We are satisfied for the choice: great position near Ocean Drive, Lincol road and Espanola Way, nice room that it was a real flat (inside we found two king-size beds, small kitchen with a sideboard, a fridge and a wardrobe and the well-stocked bathroom), good price and the breakfast enough and included in the price.
There are a gym, cinema room and the internet connection(wi-fi and by cable) was fast and good.
The employees were lovely, expecially Patricia, the blond woman.. very kind!!
Only strange point was that when we asked a taxi to go to airport and we asked the difference between the call from hotel and to stop a taxi in the street, the man told us that there was not any difference. Wrong! They debited us 5 dollars but it was our fault because we didn't consider the cost of calling..

well, this is my 2nd review of this hotel, and honestly, I am more satisfied than ever. Since my 1st review I stayed twice in Nassau Suites and I love it more and more. Staff is very competent and friendly - Lilly is top ! - and if customers complain about them, I am sure that their own behavior must have been ugly. Rooms - we have always a junior suite with two queens - are wonderful, I always found them well maintained (BTW, some people are seemingly used to stay in the sterile concrete blocks and should avoid a nice family hotel) and I did never miss anthing.
This time I specially admired staff and management: clearly, Sobe is not the place for very quiet vacations, but we had in the hotel people who came back in the morning (about 4 am), screaming and causing other noise. Next day, after complaints of guests, they have been warned by staff and management that they would be expelled if they would continue this behavior. Next nite they came back quietly. Super !
Maybe they will write a bad review of the hotel.
B4 writing my 2nd review, I read some extremly negative reviews of tjhis hotel. I think they should not taken seriously. At most, I found them ridiculous, e.g. if someone complaints that there is no bar and pool (had this person not looked on the internet presentation of the hotel ?), for me a great advantage, I avoid to comment further on them.
In my opinion: a very good hotel for a stay in Sobe at a reasonable price. Of course, people could try to get a room in Versaces villa....

Spent 2 nights at this hotel/suites. Great location, 1 block from Ocean Blvd and all the action, but quiet enough 2 sleep at night. Rooms very, very comfortable - American beds are amazing. Breakfast a communal experience in the lobby and we met very interesting people. Thank you to Lilly who is the best receptionist ever - a real gem!

Room Tip: Car parking great value for such supreme location

We stayed here for the South Beach Triathlon and the location was super convienent, the staff was friendly, and the free breakfast was pretty good. We choose a 1-bedroom suite (I don't know the other options) and had plenty of room. The futon sofa was comfy (my friend told me) and the king sized bed was as well. Housekeeping kept the room very clean and the front desk staff were helpful and kind. It's not a 5-star luxury hotel, but the kitchen is good and it was a good value to stay there for 3 days. Location was great for us - near good restaurants, shops etc, and near the race event. I'd stay there again.

This is definitely a mixed review, because this hotel actually has some really nice features. I love that the rooms are a comfortable size with fully equipped kitchen,modern decor, beatiful hardwood floors! and the hotel is really clean and neat. But there are some things that this hotel should upgrade being that it is an expensive South beach hotel.. lets start with broken ipod dock which to me I feel like if you're gonna have it in the room it should be working. It was never fixed. The television was outdated and had few channels. Plus we were a little hard pressed to get some extra linens from front desk staff. I also would have appreciated more assistance with finding worthwhile restaurants close to the hotel rather than sifting through the many places in the area. Overall I liked the hotel during my stay, but in the future would probably try another Sobe hotel for a different experience.

Hotel was ok. Space was huge and we loved having a fridge in the place. Table was great for just hanging out, but the tv was in an awkward place. (Bedroom instead of in the living area). It was awkward because we had 4 people and couldn't relax on the couch to watch. Bathroom had a roach that crawled out of the bathroom drain, 2 inches long. We told the front desk and they reimbursed us part of our stay (we were there for a week and this happened on the first day). We left the drain closed when not in use afterwards. Location was excellent so we didn't spend that much time in the hotel anyway. Bed was decent but they ran out of bedsheets apparently (full house) and our friends that stayed on the futon didn't have sheets to sleep with.

Room Tip: No room service. Breakfast was continental but the apples taste good!
