“I'd stay there again...only at the cheapest rate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

My friend and I stayed here last summer. It was very last minute as the previous hotel messed up our reservation. So, we booked 1 night at the Lorraine. The day clerk was very nice and she even told us about a few places to go. The night clerk did not seem to speak much english and was sort of rude. At that time, we only paid $56/night. They have now almost tripled their rates.

Pros:
Free Breakfast
On the beach
Free beach towels

Cons:
Bedbugs
Dirty floors
Dated television
Elevator stopped working; had to carry luggage down 3 flights of stairs

We chose this hotel because it was reasonably priced and in a good location. It definitely served it's purpose. The room was good - it was clean. The continental breakfast was OK. The beach and restaurants are in easy walking distance.

I would highly suggest staying at Lorraine Hotel should you visit Miami. I had a lovely stay there, decent interiors, spacious reception area to hang out in and meet people, excellent service and a daily inclusive breakfast to start of your day. There are very handy close amenities seconds away, a cafe, restaurants, supermarket etc.
The staff, especially at Reception are warm, friendly, helpful, approachable and will attend to your needs, they made the stay extra special! I love that it is within a few minutes from the beach and lovely boardwalk. The beds were particularly comfortable. My only qualm was that the internet access was temperamental and limited but a small thing really. I shall definitely return!! :o)

We wanted an inexpensive hotel as a base for a short "get acquainted" visit to Miami Beach. Both the Lorraine Hotel and Miami Beach surprised us. Both were more interesting and less American than we expected. For starters, the hotel is only steps from one of the Airport Flyer (a public express bus from the airport to Miami Beach with a $2.30 fare) bus stops. It is on the beach side of Collins Ave with easy access to the boardwalk. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was plenty to keep us going until lunch. The guests were a lively mix of ages and nationalities. Friendly and unpretentious is what we look for in a hotel and we found it in spades at the Lorraine. Don't stay here, if you want to be pampered; but, if you are looking for good value and a bit of local color, you'd be hard pressed to make a better choice.

Located right by the boardwalk, the location is as good as you can get for a reasonable price. Each room has different furniture but it isn't high end...it's like they bought bedroom sets at garage sales and then say it's "boutique". The hotel itself is very old and the halls are noisy and echo. Creaky floors...you will know when someone walks down the hallway. Rooms have small kitchenettes and full closets so I wonder if the hotel used to be studio apartments. Bathrooms are not updated (like from the 50s) but they are clean. Wifi is terrible in the rooms so you need to sit in the lobby to get a connection. I would consider staying again because it was clean but I would look at other options first.

Stayed January 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at Lorraine hotel. We stayed there for 3 nights. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The hotel is old - the elevator was slow but the room was clean. Location wise this hotel is close to the beach, but about a mile away from the "action" - south beach, restaurants, Lincoln ave. but we took a couple of nice walks back on the boardwalk and on the street, and buses run regularly to all the places we want to go to ($2/pp). It wasn't noisy at all and we had a good nights sleep. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel if proximity to the nightlife/south beach is not a huge issue.
