We struggled to find a place in South Beach for 3 couples meeting up in Florida - especially a nice location that wouldn't break the bank. Edgewater is a hidden gem - not too many rooms, but they're very large, well appointed (a nice kitchen in our room), and the staff is GREAT.

The only reason I wouldn't recommend it is because they'll soon realize that they're the best deal on Ocean Dr. with an amazing location, and their prices will go up!

Room Tip: We had Room 500 - great balcony overseeing the terrace, and has a bit of a view of the beach.

Right on Ocean Drive this hotel is in a great location. Across the road from the beach and close to bars and restautrants (without being noisy). The bedrooms and bathrooms are really well appointed. The staff are helpful and friendly.

Complimentary breakfast in the morning is great, simple but fresh and tasty. The happy hour in the evening on the roof terrace is a nice chance to wind down with some pretzels and a beer after a day on the beach.

Overall great hotel, would stay there again.

We recently stayed at Edgewater for a night before returning to reality after two weeks in Peru and Ecuador. Arrived at 7:30am the day of check-in after arriving in Miami at 5:15am from a overnight flight. We asked if we could check-in expecting a "sorry, come back later" and they just happened to have a no show the night before and they were able to get us in. Thanks Jonathan! The room was very clean and the hotel has all the necessities for the beach (chairs, towels, coolers). The happy hour and breakfast were also great. Location was perfect. Hotel is right on Ocean but on the quite end and steps from the beach.

Can't say enough about the great service! Edward and Joseph were all around helpful, friendly and accommodating. We were very pleased with both restaurant recommendations we were given. We had lunch at David's Cafe on Collins (Cuban) and dinner at Quinn's on Ocean (seafood).

We will definitely go back next time we are in South Beach!

Stayed here December 2012 for four nights.Everything was perfect,staff,room and location.Breakfast was lovely with ample choice.Enjoyed the happy hour after a day on the beach.The only thing i would comment on is the shower screen is not big enough so water went everywhere.
I cant wait to stay here again.

Readers, I checked into this hotel twice in one week (first day and last day) as I was touring Florida with friends and we flew in / out of Miami.
When we arrived they had upgraded 4/5 of our group. Unfortunately I didn't even have a room despite the rooms being paid in advance. The hotel actually then told me I'd have to take their 'emergency' room. The room was very poor.
To add insult to injury - on check out they tried to charge me $18USDs to cover wifi, breakfast and happy hour. The delay in finding a room for me meant I didn't have time to enjoy any of that.... I refused to pay it but I find, on my return, that they have still taken the charge from my credit card.
Coming back was better, they had my room and they had upgraded it to a lovely big suite. Was pleased. When I got to the room the smoke detector was bleeping (low battery I assume). I went out for the night and advised them that it needed to be sorted. I returned at 0100 for sleep only to find they had done nothing. It was still bleeping. i went to reception to complain and he gave me another room key.... asked me to move..... no help with the bags, packing, no apology, no explanation... and then had the cheek to ask me to immediately return the plastic entry keys from the room I was vacating.
Breakfast is served in the corridor outside the lifts on the top floor. Very poor selection of items. You are expected to go on the room terrace to eat breakfast. If you can find a seat not covered in pidgeon poo you'll be lucky.
Happy hour is the same - its free wine and beer for 1 hour to, in some way, justify the room tax of $18. We felt awkward taking a drink.... was almost like emotional rations..... and of course.... you enjoy your drinks in the comfort of a pidgeon poo encrusted seat.
On the last night we ordered 3 gin and tonics in the hotel bar on the road outside. No tonic available... we changed the order to 3 mojitos..... they came in massive glasses (although standard drinks required) and we were charged (inc tip) c.$100. YES - $100 for 3 drinks.
Be careful with this hotel.

Room Tip: Do no stay in the standard rooms.

Dear guest,

Our sincere apologies for not measuring up to your expectations. We understand it can be frustrating when 4 of your group are upgraded and you remained with the deluxe studio you had originally confirmed.
We feel the $18 resort brings a lot of value considering breakfast alone for one in South Beach can cost up to $14 and a couple of beers around $12.
We do apologize for the experience you had at the restaurant/bar within the hotel however it is not managed by us and we do not have a say in their operation.
Thank you for staying with us, we do appreciate your feedback very much.
