My family originally booked in at The Perry down the road and fled the construction site that it was in disgust (but that's another review....) Thankfully the Surfcomber was an oasis of peace and tranquility after the Perry's incessant jackhammering and war zone decor. Staff at the front desk were very helpful and (probably the best hotel staff I have encountered - particular thanks to Vanessa) and they informed me that they had had numerous groups of refugees fleeing the Perry.
The hotel location was fantastic - just a street away from Lincoln Rd Mall. The hotel is quite an old building but has been renovated to try and keep up with the times. Having said that I'm not exactly sure if the life size plastic animals in the lobby are particularly cool.
My brother & I stayed in a double room (2 double beds). The rooms have been renovated to modern standards and are very clean and very comfortable with top quality linen on nice beds. Best of all the room was wonderfully quiet. The only two down sides are
A couple of comments though - the rooms are very small with very little space and almost no cupboard space. he beds in the room were short doubles rather than normal queen size which mean i had to sleep on a diagonal or my feet would have hung off the bed (I'm 6'3"). The bathroom was similarly very small and probably one of the smallest hotel bathrooms I can remember.
Outside the pool area was great with a very relaxed sandy area at the back leading to a rustic fence that blended nicely with the beach itself. Probably one of the nicest, low key and unpretentious hotel areas in Miami.
I would have given this hotel 5 stars but despite the excellent service, room rates were over $200 a night and despite this being Miami Beach the rooms were too small and the hotel too old to justify such prices.
