“Outstanding Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Fantastic hotel right on the beach and, as we were traveling with our dogs, the only hotel on S. Beach that would take dogs! Incredibly helpful staff, plenty of activities (including a 'fun run'), and impecably clean rooms. We were celebrating our anniversary and they brought us wine up to our room after we checked in, which was an awesome gesture. Also, after the fun run, Michelle and Nick invited my wife and I to join them for breakfast with another couple, which was an excellent time. Right in the heart of the Art Deco district, and about a block away from shops at Lincoln Road. When we made reservations, we became Kimpton frequent stay program, which I recommend if for nothing else other than free wifi. I will definately be coming back to this hotel in the future!

Room Tip: We had an ocean view king room, and it had a excellent view of pool and beach.

My husband and I have stayed in South Beach a few times now and this is by far our favorite hotel. The price is one of the most reasonable in South Beach for what you get. Check in was a breeze and the employees at the front desk were so pleasant and accomodating. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The pool is large with plenty of seating. The staff at the pool help you find chairs and bring you towels. They also continually refill the large coolers with lemon and plain water throughout the day and bring frozen grapes as a mid-day snack. The hotel grounds back up to the beach so you can access that as well. We didn't go on the beach but chairs and umbrellas there are for rent, they are not included in the fee for the room. We had lunch as we relaxed by the pool and the food was really good. I recommend getting to the pool as early as possible as it fills up by noon. Perhaps one of the best features at the hotel is the free wine hour from 5-6pm. They served two different varieties of wine and sangria each day and it is complimentary. There are plenty of chairs, couches, and pillows to relax on while you sip your vino. If you are interested in renting bikes there is a rental station in the back of the hotel near the beach access. You can rent a bike for as long as you like but 30 minutes is $4, a great value. If you sign up for the Kimpton rewards program you can get free wi-fi and $10 off your mini bar bill. It is free and a great deal! Valet parking was easy and quick, the fee is $34 a day plus tax, but it is south beach so you'll pay that or more at most hotels. The location of the hotel is great, right next to the SLS and the Delano, within walking distance to Lincoln and Ocean Drive.
If I had to complain about one thing it would just be that so many hotels now a days don't put doors on showers and the water tends to go on the bathroom floor. This was very minor and it certainly wouldn't sway my decision to stay here again.
We can't wait to stay here again, this will definitely be our new go to hotel in Miami!

I had stayed at this property several times before it became a Kimpton Hotel. I always thought it was a grand place and loved the location. The improvements that came with the Kimpton affiliation are great. The rooms are much improved and the service is remarkable. I have now joined the Kimpton frequent stay program and hope to enjoy their properties in other cities. I'll retuirn to the Surfcomber with a smile on my face. Can't wait.

I cant say enough about how accommodating the staff was on our trip. Some of the cleanest rooms I've seen while on my travels. Weekend getaway with friends or family fun the Surfcomber is a must. Take a walk on the boardwalk or take part in the many activities the Surfcomber has planned throughout your stay.

Loved this hotel. I've been to South Beach a few times now and this will be my new place to stay from now on. I travel for both leisure and business but this particular trip was to celebrate a friend's birthday.

This hotel was recently renovated and it shows! The rooms and lobby are all tastefully decorated, very hip and cool. The art throughout the hotel is interesting and suits South Beach very well. The rooms are spacious and inviting however my friends and I spent most of our time around the pool or on the beach, both of which were fantastic places to take in the scenery and have an ice cold cocktail. The dinner menu at Lantao is very unique and the chef came out to our table at one point and gave us some suggestions. The dining up there with some of the area's top restaurants.

The hotel is located right in the heart of it all but the staff almost makes it so you don't need/want to leave. The service at check-in, the pool, and the restaurants/bars were exceptional. Managers and the staff throughout the hotel went out of their way to ask how my friends and I were doing.

A reasonably priced hotel for an amazing experience in the middle of South Beach. If you want to be on the beach, have great service, in a fun hotel.... this is it!

My cousins and I stayed at Surfcomber, Kimpton Hotel for 3 nights from Nov 8-Nov 11 for my sister's bachelorette party. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by many smile and complimentary champagne. Customer service at Surfcomber was consistent and very fast for all 3 night. Andrew and Chris at the front desk were amazing and really showcase great customer service skills. Hotel itself is very neat and clean. Rooms were very nice with comfortable beds and clean washrooms. I would definitely suggest this hotel to everyone. We booked this hotel through Hotelmode.com and they got us a very decent rate compared to online rates. Hotel location is perfect if you would like be walking distance from Lincoln Road, Oceans Drive and Washington Avenue. Close to all the hot spots! Excellent place to stay!
