“an AMAZING TIME!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

it was such a beautiful place. i went here with a few friends and had a lovely time. it was cheaper than the marriot but just as classy, i loved every bit of it. The bed was soooo comfortable and thwe hard wood floors were so shiiny , its so hard to beleave that this place is a gen of natural history and yet so modern at the same time, i loved it.

Room Tip: while this place was amazing, i would ask to have one of the new rooms, which were recently renovate...

You get what you pay for and this hotel was well worth it. We only stayed the night before our cruise. It was clean, cheap and right in the middle of everything in the South Beach area. Would def stay again :)

We stayed at the clay hotel for three nights. I will say a very old hotel but our room was clean with new carpet and flat screen. The room was very small. We had a queen deluxe room, the bed seem like a full size. The location was excellent right in the middle of everything. They don't have ice machines or elevators but other than that it was ok.

Room Tip: If you want to be in the center of everything and do not have a lot of luggage, this would be a good...

It a lovely place to stay at! Almost everything was close to this hotel, beaches, restaurants things to see and do..It was easy to take the bus in different directions to see and find attractions in Miami.

Stayed at the clay hotel from the 3rd -6th of April after doing Disneyland in Orlando. When we arrived we were given a room with 2 double beds that was supposed to be a family room?? We have a boy and a girl of 7 and 9.
When we spoke with reception we were told that the hotel does not have any rooms with single beds in it? and that the room we had was a family room, eventually after many minutes of asking for a manager we were offered a room with 2 rooms that was ok but still not worth the money we had paid for the family room that was offered when we had booked the room originally.

Also after checking in we were given a room 2 blocks down from reception and up 3 flights of stairs and no lift, which isn't easy with 2 children and 6 Cases! The hallways were disgusting with part of the ceiling hanging down and electrical wires hanging out of the walls and a overbearing smell of old chip fat from the restaurant downstairs. Apparently the hotel is being renovated but we weren't told this when we booked it and saw no signs of work being done.

location is good as long as you don't mind being woken up at 4am by druken idiots that like to shout. If you have children pay a little more and don't get sucked into the promise of a great hotel that is cheap.

I stayed at the Clay hotel and it was beautiful and incredible. I think the Clay hotel should be a landmark for Miamis rich and cultural history. The flowers are evrywhere and the chairs are super cumfy. All the rooms have new TVs and carpet. I loved my room, but not as much as i loved the Food downstairs or the view from my balcony :)
A few of my friends went Marriot for the trip but i would much rather stay where the life of miami is. I am soooo happy with my choice.

From the moment i came in i was greeted by the concierge. Fresh flowers were everywhere and art upon the walls. In my bedroom were fresh towels, folded so nicely and the bathrooms were well stocked. The chilling areas were peaceful and filled with leather couches.
i had an amazing stay and the food downstairs was FANTASTIC!!!!

Room Tip: ask to try one of their newly renovated rooms :) the best rooms are on the second floor
