As long as you're staying here for the right reasons - looking for an economical alternative to the pricier hotels in South Beach - you'll be just fine. We had a ground floor room, nice and clean, no problems with noise, and right around the corner from a Walgreen's with daily Krispy Kreme delivery. An easy walk to the beach was very convenient. Little bit seedy in the general area, but never felt at risk. Obviously you have to drive to get to the heart of South Beach, but that's the trade off.
